Hillary Clinton auditions for "Queen for a Day"

Jack E. Kemp

In the 1950s, there was a television show called "Queen for a Day" in which four or five women contestants went on the air telling their true stories of being impoverished and not being able to feed or clothe their children. The one with the worst tale of woe won items such as cash, a new car, a new washing machine, furniture, etc. You may still be able to see segments of this show on YouTube. Carol Burnett once did a parody of this on her own television show in later decades, portraying one of the constestants who "was so poor, that her family had a disease that didn't have a telethon."

But the worst parody of this show now comes from Hillary Clinton, claiming to be "dead broke" after leaving the White House in 2001, despite having $780,000 in assets. Even the liberal New York Daily News, in their article about this claim, showed a cartoon of Hillary selling lemonade on a street corner for $25,000 a glass (her minimal speaking fee).
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/clintons-dead-broke-leavin...; John Podhoretz, in the NY Post, called Hillary's claim an insult to working Americans. http://nypost.com/2014/06/11/clintons-pathetic-tale-of-woe-is-an-in... and he was right.

This behavior by Hillary is akin to someone coming up to you on a bright sunny summer day, without a cloud in the sky, and offering to sell you an umbrella because it is raining now. Not that it will rain, but it is coming down NOW. You find it hard to discern whether such a tall tale teller is sick or just simply a thief. The answer might be both. If this is the type of "accounting" Hillary is most familiar with, then I would advise you to tell even your liberal acquaintances how their tax dollars, placed in the U.S. Treasury, would be managed under a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

Hillary's husband famously said, of English vocabulary, "that depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is." And, as the Red Queen said to  Alice (in Wonderland) concerning making up things that could't be so, "I daresay you haven't had much practice. When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

When you consider Benghazi, Hillary's supposed dodging of bullets on a tarmac in the former Yugoslavia, now Hillary's claims of POST-White House poverty, I think Mrs. Clinton has the Red Queen beat by a factor of four.

This is what happens when the press is abdicating its Constitutional responsibility to inform the public.

The result is that all the leeches in America are now looking for just the D before checking the ballot

Re:  Steve.  We had a friend whom we said would vote for Vlad the Impaler (these days, I'd add Hannibal Lecter) if he was running as a Democrat.

She learned the art of lying from her husband who used to be the best liar around until Obama came upon the scene and took away his crown. Hillary is trying very hard to regain that crown of liar extraordinaire but she will have to work very hard to take it from King Obama. It is time for no  more Clinton's or Bush's in the White House EVER again.

There are voters who who would vote for a dead skunk if it had a "D" after the name.

She reminds me of an old joke:  Children in an affluent area were asked to write a paper on being poor.  One student's paper read, "Once there was a family that was very poor.  The cook was poor, the butler was poor, the gardener was poor..."  Reminds me of the Clintons.

the scariest thing about her is that there are enough morons in this once great country that will vote for her no matter what - add to that every lazy a-hole who is on the government teat & she is pretty much a lock to be our next president - the 2016 election looks to be our last chance to save our nation - GET OUT THE VOTE
