I have a few questions on this little matter. But, first the story:
WASHINGTON — In 2012, congressional investigators asked the State Department for a wide range of documents related to the attack on the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. The department eventually responded, furnishing House committees with thousands of documents.
But it turns out that that was not everything.
The State Department had not searched the email account of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton because she had maintained a private account, which shielded it from such searches, department officials acknowledged on Tuesday.
Here are my questions:
- Where were all of these concerned Republicans and so-called “Conservatives”, when the officials from Bush Administration were discovered to be using private e-mail accounts for Government business? Busily defending them and trying to downplay the issue, that’s what!
- Perhaps one of the most important questions of them all: If Hillary Clinton had black skin; would this even be an issue? I mean seriously; this looks more like a Neo-leftist attack on a New-leftist old White Woman, by supporters of a neo-leftist black man. Just sayin’… …and yes, I am going there.
- Is this a legit story for the left to be even covering or is this an actual media hit job on Hillary Clinton which is being coordinated by the White House, in retaliation for the Clinton Machine tactics against the Obama campaign in 2008? (Like the Birther thing, which started in Clinton camps…)
I mean, I can see the right attacking Hillary on this issue; the right made quite cottage industry for itself attacking Bill Clinton in the 1990’s. This continues to this day and to a degree; their attacks have merit. However, for the left to attack Hillary over this issue here; smacks of political retribution of the ugly sort and could be seen as a sexist attack on a woman; on the part of supporters of a neo-leftist black man.
This my friends, would spell trouble for the Democratic Party. There are some that think that this is simply the Democrats holding a door open for Elizabeth Warren; I dissent, I believe this could leave an opening for the Republicans to appeal to the soccer mom’s and they will be able to say, “See how the Democrats treat older white women?” This could backfire on the media and badly.
Just my opinion.
