Dick Morris was a friend and long-time adviser to Bill Clinton, beginning when Bill was Governor of Arkansas. Morris became a political adviser to the White House after Clinton was elected president in 1992, and the campaign manager of Bill’s successful 1996 bid for re-election.
In other words, Dick Morris knows the Clintons very very well.
In an email, Morris has written an analysis of a Bill Clinton TV ad for Hillary who is, though unannounced, widely believed to be a candidate for the presidency in 2016. (God help us!)
I hope everyone who receives this e-mail understands why it is being sent, because we have already seen what damage a President can do by suppressing the facts and twisting the truth; we don’t need another self-centered politician to follow on in those footsteps.
If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary’s background … beware, as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections:
Bill says: “In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.”
The facts are: Hillary’s main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.
Bill says: “Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children’s rights project for poor kids.”
The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.
Bill says: “Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers.”
The facts are:
- She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked; it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar.
- She had no job offers in Arkansas, none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there.
- She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.
Bill says: “President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman.”
The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter’s choice to be chairman.
Bill says: “She served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.”
The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.
Bill says: “Hillary didn’t succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994, but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.”
The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton & Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I know; I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals’ tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.
Bill says: “Hillary was the face of America all over the world.”
The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely tourism and symbolic, and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.
Bill says: “Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children’s and women’s issues.”
The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer’s or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation.
Share this with everyone you know. Ask them to prove Dick Morris wrong. Think about it – he’s said all of this openly, thus if he were not factual or true, he’d be liable for defamation of character.
And here’s my addendum to Dick Morris’ list of Hillary Clinton’s non-accomplishments.
This is Hillary’s sole “accomplishment” as Secretary of State under the POS:
On Sept. 11, 2012, despite their desperate pleas for help, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left four Americans — Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department Information Officer Sean Smith, ex Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty — to die in Benghazi, Libya.
As Secretary of State and therefore head of the State Department, Hillary was the boss of Ambassador Stevens and Information Officer Smith. But she left them to die. The woman has a heart of stone.
She then compounded her evil deed by lying about the jihadists’ siege on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi — that it was a reaction to a little video that’s critical of Muhammad. Until Hillary and the Obama administration told and retold this lie, the world had never even heard of or known about this obscure video.
Then she further compounded her evil deeds by saying, when she was grilled about her lie about the video in a Congressional hearing on Benghazi, “What difference does it make now?”
To those who tout Hillary Clinton as America’s next President (God help us), I challenge you to name one, JUST ONE, accomplishment of her tenure as secretary of state.
I dare you.
The latest from the Daily Mail:
Hillary’s granddaughter, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky, isn’t even a month old, but grandma is already exploiting the baby as a campaign tool. In the four weeks since Charlotte was born, Hillary’s already made reference to her granddaughter in several speeches, including at a rally yesterday for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Now I know whose idea it was to have Chelsea blatantly, shamelessly mimic Duchess Kate like this:
It’s Hillary’s way to implant in the minds of lo-info sheeple that the Clintons are American royalty.
Hand me a barf bag!
