Even partisan Democrats were confounded by the news that former President Bill Clinton met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch for half an hour in Phoenix, Arizona. Clinton, whose wife is currently under an FBI investigation into her treatment of classified information, stepped aboard Lynch’s plane last Monday night and spoke with her about topics unknown.
The political fallout led Lynch to announce last week that she would remove herself personally from the decision about whether or not to bring federal charges against the presumptive Democratic nominee, though both she and Clinton insist that the visit was purely social.
For her part, Hillary said that it was merely a “short, chance meeting at an airport tarmac” that had nothing to do with the federal investigation. She admitted that it looked bad, however.
“Hindsight is 20/20,” she told NBC’s Chuck Todd.
You know, since “Stronger Together” has been tainted by the unsuccessful Remain campaign in the UK and “I’m With Her” has been turned against her by Donald Trump, Hillary needs a new slogan. “Hindsight is 20/20” could be the perfect fit. Because this appears to be her primary mantra. It’s another way of saying, “At this point, what difference does it make?” It’s her go-to message when it comes to Benghazi, her email server, the Iraq War, military action in Syria and Libya, and the rest of her dubious record. God only knows how many bad decisions she’ll have to excuse by the end of her first term as president. This is not a woman who appears to learn from her mistakes.
It’s one thing to elect a president who may or may not be the leader we need; it’s quite another to elect someone who has made it abundantly clear that she has no business in the White House. No one’s perfect, but some of Hillary’s choices were obviously bad from the outset. Forget about 20/20 vision; when it comes to navigating her affairs, Hillary seems to be completely blind.
As a couple, the Clintons have demonstrated over and over again that they will go to any lengths necessary to protect and defend their own ambitions. Their arrogant disdain for the law is legendary. Corruption and scandal surround them like a thick fog. Forget about their political beliefs; these two transcend partisanship in their single-minded obsession with power. Putting them back in the White House would be like letting a man-eating tiger babysit your kids. Sure, maybe you’ll get lucky and nothing will happen.
But do you really want to take the risk?
