This link discusses Hillary Clinton's past decisions and also sheds some light on the GOP foreign policies of John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

"Sen. Rand Paul raises an interesting question:

When has Hillary Clinton ever been right on foreign policy?

The valkyrie of the Democratic Party says she urged President Obama to do more to aid Syrian rebels years ago. And last summer, she supported air strikes on Bashar Assad’s regime.

Had we followed her advice and crippled Assad’s army, ISIS might be in Damascus today, butchering Christians and Alawites and aiding the Islamic State in Iraq in overrunning Baghdad.

But if the folly of attacking Assad’s army and weakening its resistance to ISIS terrorists is apparent to everyone this summer, why were Clinton, Obama and Secretary of State Kerry oblivious to this reality just a year ago?

Consider the rest of Hillary’s record…."

AC-302, >>...Lying before a grand jury wasn't too cool. And even though the Congress acquitted him, the NY Bar still took his bar card from him for 5 years as punishment. They should have barred him for life, IMHO.<<

He escaped being thrown out of office because there was insufficient votes in the Senate. If you remember, there was a female Doctor who was serving a FELONY conviction in prison for having lied to a Grand Jury about her having a sexual encounter with one of her patients.

Another example of Politicians being in a separate class ABOVE us peons.

I've run into PLENTY of people her for whom Hillary Clinton has never done any wrong, can do no wrong, and will do no wrong, ever. For them, her flatus is sunshine and rainbows. We can recount all kinds of scandals at which she was at the center to show otherwise. I get it that certain Democrats 1) long for the Reagan/Bush prosperity, the momentum of which being what carried Clinton to victory and 2) a sort of "payback" for the impeachment of HillBilly. After all, if "Hill" is back in, then that sort of "vindicates" Bill, in a sense for those who "like" him.

IMHO, you can still "like" him, yet admit that he did wrong. Lying before a grand jury wasn't too cool. And even though the Congress acquitted him, the NY Bar still took his bar card from him for 5 years as punishment. They should have barred him for life, IMHO.

Are you really proud of her, worry? Really? Her sterling record of achievement? Her broad knowledge of the world? Her steadfast upholding of solid American values? Her pleasant demeanor? Her ethical record?

worryfree said: "But keep attacking Hilary-she needs the practice dealing with you folks for when she is President for the 8 years after Obama."

So, after with 5+ years of complete failure out of Obozo, the damage he's done still isn't good enough for you? You'd vote for Her Thighness and continue the downward spiral?

And if Cheney and Dubya had not insisted new take out Saddam Iraq and Iran would still be fighting and keeping the riff raff busy.

But keep attacking Hilary-she needs the practice dealing with you folks for when she is President for the 8 years after Obama.

BuzzLOL, >> Obama's was correct when he voted AGAINST EvilBushJr.'s War on Iraq... Hillary voted FOR it…<<

Hate to bust your bubble but:

Obama's was elected to the US Senate in 2004 and his first day in office was January 4, 2005. The Iraq War vote was October 2, 2002. OVER two years BEFORE Obama's first day in office.

Maybe a war vote was held in the Illinous Senate?

I've never thought of Hillary as "right". She's a far leftie, in fact. Here, now.. when you make statements during your campaign such as: "There's not enough money in America to do what I want to do.."(she giggles before and after the statement), then I think that defines her right there.

Personally, I think Bill Clinton was a weak leader. He wanted to be a leftie, but found out pretty quick that it wasn't going to get him anyplace. He moderated quickly. Hillary, on the other hand, I think will be quite the ball-buster if she's ever in a position of power. I also think she'll wind up as a hard leftie, even if shown that what she touts won't work.

This is going to be fun to watch. For her to get any traction, she will have to assail the Obama legacy.

...and she will -- with a vengeance

She was right when she fell and hit her head.
