Hillary Clinton had an outburst. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got angry. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost her cool. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is human. Yet her aides feel the need to offer idiotic excuses for her behavior. Finally when pressed, an aide just sort of “gave up.”
Washington Daily News is carrying an article by Kenneth R. Bazinet and James Gordon Meek titled “State aid mangles excuses for Hillary Clinton’s outburst in the Congo.” In the article we are told that Clinton’s aide makes some odd excuses at Clinton’s “blow-up.”
Among them are she was in a country that belittles and rapes women; the student who asked the question didn’t relay it correctly and also the student wanted Obama’s views.
What is the big deal?
If you go out to Washington D.C. and listen to our politicians you see constant lack of restraint and good taste. It’s ok to be tacky at home I guess.
That’s not it.
Bill Clinton has been in the news lately because of the release by North Korea of two journalists. He played a major role in getting them out. He upstaged Hillary who as Secretary of State couldn’t get the reporters freed. That has to be a sore spot not to mention her years in the White House when Bill Clinton shamed himself at her expense.
So this unsuspecting kid wants to know what Hillary’s husband thinks about China and Africa. She gets angry and says “I’m not going to be channeling my husband.” She adds “My husband is not Secretary of State, I am.”
Does this issue really need public debate?
Clinton’s pride was hurt. Now she may have been tired too but basically she was angered that someone was more interested in her husband’s opinion than hers and she was supposed to “report it.”
However, the person who asked the question may have thought they were asking a question that was unique and perhaps even that Hillary would get a kick out of.
Whatever the reason this incident is no more news than the Tiger Woods and caddy mutual disgusting flatulence fopaux.
When I was 19 years old I had worked very hard to become an assistant manager at a loan company. I had full authority to approve and deny loans. However, I could not sign checks because I was under 21. Therefore either the manager or the office manager had to sign the checks for me.
While that happened even though I made an irreversible decision, customers would engage the manager in conversation with respect to what had transpired.
Of course that was due to my age but that didn’t help my feelings.
This country is going to stay in the mud if it doesn’t grow up.
