Hillary Clinton’s biography – The truth keeps getting in the way.

Kiss my ring…or I’ll beat you to death with it!

To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, there is nothing good that happened in her husband’s two terms as President that either wasn’t because of her or she didn’t have her hand in.  The bad stuff, not so much, that was his fault.  The same goes for her entire life; she spent it selflessly serving others for free, sacrificing for the common good.  The truth, as is often the case with the Clintons, is a bit of a different story.

To hear Hillary Clinton talk, she’s spent her entire career putting her Yale Law School degree to work for the common good.

She routinely tells voters that she’s “been working to bring positive change to people’s lives for 35 years.” She told a voter in New Hampshire: “I’ve spent so much of my life in the nonprofit sector.” Speaking in South Carolina, Bill Clinton said his wife “could have taken a job with a firm … Instead she went to work with Marian Wright Edelman at the Children’s Defense Fund.”

The overall portrait is of a lifelong, selfless do-gooder. The whole story is more complicated – and less flattering.

Less flattering, indeed.  Read the whole thing.

    Why put someone down who has spent so many decades working for others? She has made some important, significant contributions to Americans, has she not?

    There is a difference between significant and important, it’s a matter of perspective which column her contributions fall in to.
