Hillary Clinton had a 20 minute Q & A today about her email thing….
I waited and listened to most of it with my wife…
We’re fine with it….
The media probably won’t be….
They’re NOT really good at that….
During her time before the camera’s she said several things….
The media reported most one thing….
Her saying ‘she should have used two email addresses.’….
She did point out that she used one because it was just easier..
She did point out (in your face wise) that she, like EVERYONE else choses what’s personal and what’s business…That IS the way it’s done….
And that her personal stuff (Like everyone else’s) is and will stay her’s….
And she reminded everyone that she released a LOT of pages of emails and the State Department HAS decided to release ALL of that AFTER they take up to six months to check the pages out….
Call us cynical?
But NOTHING Hillary Clinton was gonna say today was gonna stop the media….goateed it on by Republicans from continuing to infer that Hillary Clinton has something to hide, even if she doesn’t….As a matter of fact ?…..Some of the questions , we thought, where stupid, ‘gotcha’ stuff for the Beltway crowd, since a recent poll showed that only 18% of Americans give a shit about all of this…..
This is the start of her campaign for President….
It will continue like this because she IS and HAS been a private person that is in the public’s eye…
She is also leading EVERYONE that is spinning the 2016 Sweepstakes spindle……
And she IS a Clinton with a vagina….
Hold on folks …
Cause the ride has just begun….
But count two votes form my household for the lady….
Go to Hell
Hillary Clinton had something to say to the media about her email. It wasn’t too subtle.
Hillary Clinton was likable enough, answering questions calmly though with a weary smile. She even offered a feint toward humility, allowing that, “looking back,” perhaps there was a “smarter” way for her to have handled her correspondence as secretary of state besides bypassing official government email entirely.
Beneath the politesse, however, was an unmistakable message in her 21-minute news conference in New York on Tuesday, easily distilled into three short words: Go to hell.
No, Clinton said, she did not violate the law or rules when, for reasons of “convenience,” she used a private email account in her years as the nation’s top diplomat.
No, she said, this matter does not need to be turned over to some outsider who can examine the Clinton family’s private email server and independently assess her assertion that she has already given to the State Department any correspondence that might conceivably be of public interest.
And no, she clearly believes, even if she did not explicitly say, she’s not going to pretend that this latest uproar is on the level, that the reporters and politicians second-guessing her judgments and clamoring for more answers have anything but self-interested motives in fanning the controversy.
How essentially combative was Clinton? The main piece of news to emerge from the session was her confusingly worded disclosure that she has already deleted the emails that she believes are no one’s business but her own.
Go to hell is not typically a sentiment expressed by politicians on the brink of a presidential campaign. But in Hillary Clinton’s case, it reflects a sincerely held belief that has been nearly a quarter-century in the making. Even Clinton opponents would have to acknowledge that she has some very good reasons for thinking the way she does.
