Because you haven’t heard this absolutely everywhere else already
First, the big guns, and from one side of Hillary’s mouth, at that:
Back when she last ran for president, Clinton was vocal about other government officials who use private emails that circumvent automatic government archiving.
“Our Constitution is being shredded. We know about the secret wiretaps, the secret military tribunals, the secret White House email accounts,” she said at an event in 2007, indirectly indicting the Republican administration. “It’s a stunning record of secrecy and corruption, of cronyism run amok.”
Then, directly addressing the third biggest beef I’ve got with her (first being her neoliberal inclinations, second being her abundant mendacity, which is a matter of record at this stage), her failure at basic PR. As I see it, the Secretary of State is essentially the head honcho of US PR, and she rather sucked at it. Now that she has a candidacy on the line, she hasn’t improved even a little.
A spokesman for Clinton did not respond to ABC News’ requests for comment.
This is no two-bit blogger she’s ignoring.
Clinton tweeted late Wednesday that she has asked the State Department to publicly release all the emails she turned over, but she has otherwise remained silent on the controversy.
Maybe our esteemed Dr. Smith can weigh in on whether or not this is how a damaged brand runs damage control.
If this is what we get out of Secretary of State Clinton and erstwhile all-but-coronated soon-to-be Candidate Clinton, just imagine what a President Hillary would have in store for us over the course of four years of more neoliberal hijinks, blatant lies to the public, hypocrisy, and the arrogance of acting out a belief that rules are for all those other schmucks. I can only barely imagine a scenario where she even qualifies as a lesser evil. Give me President Gohmert any day. At least he’s so goofy as to be a lame duck from day one.
