The truth about Hillary

This came in an e-mail from my uncle.



So, I wanted to make a few corrections:

Bill says: Hillary never wanted to run for public office, but she did
want to work at public service.

The facts are: When Clinton was considering not running for another term
as Governor of Arkansas in 1990, Hillary said she would run if he
didn't. She and Bill even had me
take two surveys to assess her chances of winning. The conclusion was
she couldn't win because people would just see her as a seat warmer for
when Bill came back licking his wounds after losing for president. So
she didn't run. Bill did and won. But there is no question she had her
eye on public office, as opposed to service, long ago.

Bill says: In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.

The facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school
was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing
and killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a
law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations
and develop grounds for appeal.

Bill says: Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children's
rights project for poor kids.

The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the
California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the
Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship
with him.

Bill says: Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned
down all the lucrative job offers.

The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam and only passed the Arkansas
She had no job offers in Arkansas and only got hired by the University
of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching
She only joined the prestigious Rose Law Firm after Bill became Attorney
General and made partner only after he was elected governor.

Bill says: President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services
Board of Directors and she became its chairman.

The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for
Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary became chairman
in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be

Bill says: She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital.

The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned
by Bill, was to sit on the Walmart board of directors for a substantial
She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

Bill says: Hillary didn't succeed at getting health care for all
Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the
Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.

The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was
included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority
Leader Senator Trent Lott. I helped to negotiate the deal. The money
came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals'
tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of

Bill says: Hillary was the face of America all over the world.

The facts are: Her visits were part of a
program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by
feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits
abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive
diplomacy on any of them.

Bill says: Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for
children's and women's issues.

The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing
the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four
substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto
Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their
relatives through Alzheimer's or other conditions. And two were routine
bills to aid 9-11 victims and responders which were sponsored by the
entire NY delegation.

Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton:
She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our country
when it comes to the war on terror.
1. She wants to close GITMO & move the combatants to the USA where they
would have access to our legal system.
2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone
calls to/from the USA .
3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants
captured on the battlefield.
4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between
suspected Al Qaeda cells & supporters in the USA.
5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the<
BR>military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known
terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.

I can't think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single
comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the
War on Terror.
But, I can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our
country & makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us........She
goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common
sense is abandoned.

She is a disaster for all Americans
