Fw: Give him credit--Bill tried

Bill Clinton certainly told a lovely fairy tale  about his and Hillary's romance; here is the truth, told by one who should know.
Is Trump too thin-skinned?  Does he lack control in the face of criticism, reacting by attacking ad hominem?  YES to both. 
Unfortunately, we, the voters, must choose between 2 evils; decide which is the lesser.

Bill's Speech Fact Checked
This is all documented in the movie "Hillary's America and the Democratic Party."  If it's not in a theater near you, since viewing was cut short, please try to see through other channels

Posted by Dick Morris:
Bill Clinton's folksy and specially Arkansas accented speech at the DCM on 7-27, painted a very positive picture of his former girlfriend and later wife, Hillary. "He wanted to share some things we may not know about Hillary's background", but the facts prove to be quite a different story. Below are just a few factual corrections:
Bill says: "In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor."
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."
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."
Facts are: She flunked the D.C. bar exam, 'Yes', flunked it, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas, 'None', and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.
Bill says: "President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its Chairman."
Facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be chairman.
Bill says: "She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital."
Facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart Board of Directors, for a substantial fee. 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."
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 know; 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 funds.
Bill says: "Hillary was the face of America all over the World."(LOL) 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."
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 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire N.Y. delegation. Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize Woodstock.
Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton. She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our Country (that's you and me) when it comes to the 'War on Terror'.
1. She wants to close GITMO and 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 and supporters in the USA.
5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the Military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.
One cannot 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, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our Country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us.
Bottom line: She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.
By Dick Morris, former senior political advisor to President Bill Clinton
As a final note: You might want to see the movie."Hillary's America and the Democratic Party"… presented in a very factual way!!!

Dick Morris. Who has fallen so far that he works at the National Enquirer. Whose every prediction is at 99.99% wrong but so what? He feeds the narrative. Again, this is the last guy to go to regarding the Clintons. He's paid millions to lie about them, and that, he will do like the trained seal that he is.

The only person who is even close to Dick Morris when it comes to being wrong about pretty much everything is Bill Kristol.

I'd love to see the two of them have a wrong-off, but it would undoubtedly result in a tie.

Third one down- I didn't know she had interned for the California Communist Party and worked for the Black Panthers. I guess Trump just doesn't want to bring this up.

Thx 4 Fish said...

Dick Morris was so wrong about the 2012 presidential election that Fox News let him go to avoid further embarrassment. But of course they brought him back to attack Hillary when her next presidential campaign started. Morris' latest book is called "Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary" It would be hard to find anyone who makes more of his living from attacking Hillary.

Little Hillary trivia, although she did fail the DC bar exam, so did 266 others who took the exam that year.

I wonder if there are any other candidates running for president who might have a hard time with the DC bar exam...
