In 2016 we were assured that Hillary was the most-qualified, smartest, bestest possible choice for President in the entire history of the United States. Yes sir. Her resume speaks for itself!
Even Barack Obama talked up Hillary’s resume as if she was head and shoulders above him. Which, to be fair, isn’t saying a whole hell of a lot. Even Jimmy Carter was head and shoulders above Barack.
Yup. In 2016, they couldn’t shut up about how accomplished and qualified she was. Hillary Clinton’s resume is so impressive that only a slack-jawed dummy wouldn’t vote for her.
So it is rather surprising that when providing convention-viewers (all twelve of them) with a snapshot of Hillary’s so-called impressive resume, this is what the DNC flashed on the stage during her pissing and moaning, still not over it speech last night.
She lost to Donald Trump.
She used her husband as a springboard for her own political career.
And she gave a speech in 1995.
Wow! How impressive!
Just how thin is Hillary’s resume that these are the highlights the DNC chose?
When her single greatest accomplishment is losing in 2016, maybe we can all stop pretending Hillary Clinton is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
But it was the last item that made me laugh out loud. Because it isn’t just the DNC that thinks giving a speech in 1995 was some impressive accomplishment; Hillary does too.
During the final debate in 2016 Hillary attempted to make the case for herself over Donald Trump by going decade-by-decade comparing her alleged impressive resume to that of her opponent.
For the 1990s, Hillary said:
“In the 1992, I went to Beijing and I said women’s rights are human rights. He insulted former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, and called her an eating machine.”
I laughed so hard when I heard that I made that embarrassing snorting sound that causes everyone to turn and stare. So the next day, I wrote a column titled “Hillary’s idea of an accomplishment is making a speech” in which I wrote:
For the whole of the 1990s that is the only thing Donald Trump accomplished? Really Hillary?
That probably comes as a surprise to all the people he employed during that decade. Sure, he fell on hard times in the early 1990s, but he turned it around in a matter of years. By 1995, even the New York Times was referring to him as “Comeback kid.”
So which is the greater accomplishment? Turning around a financial failure into a huge success? Or making a speech in Beijing?
Only a Liberal Democrat would believe making a speech is the greater accomplishment.
Democrats are all talk and no action.
In fact, I remember someone once said of Barack Obama that all he does is offer “smooth speeches” that do not amount to solutions.
Does anybody remember who said that?
Oh, yeah. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Yet Hillary wants us to be impressed that the one accomplishment she made in the 1990s was reading a speech in Beijing that included the line “women’s rights are human rights.”
Now, I don’t mean to pick nits. But since women are human, isn’t it logical to say women’s rights are human rights? Is that really such an earth-shattering discovery?
I mean it isn’t like women’s rights are weasels’ rights.
Hillary wants kudos for pointing out the obvious in a speech she read in the 1990s.
Come on! It’s funny!
Knowing what we know now, thanks to WikiLeaks, why should we be impressed that in the 1990s Hillary Clinton flew to Beijing and read a speech written by committee and loaded into a teleprompter?
If all this woman has by way of an accomplishment is reading a speech, doesn’t that mean she really didn’t accomplish anything in the 1990s?
I mean other than ruining the lives of women who accused her husband of sexual assault. Firing the travel office staff and replacing them with her cronies. Bungling Hillarycare and making an idiot of herself. Absconding with FBI files on the Clintons’ enemies. Renting out the Lincoln Bedroom.
Come to think of it, given all her shady, incompetent behavior in the 1990s, I guess successfully reading a speech in Beijing is the best she can come up with.
This is why when I saw that screen capture on Twitter last night I howled laughing.
66% of Hillary’s resume is giving a speech twenty-five years ago and losing to Donald Trump.
Come on! It’s hilarious! I’m still laughing as I type this.
This poor, bitter old broad probably spontaneously combusted when she saw that. By now, I imagine she’s sleeping off a three-wine-box binge.
