91. I think you're right, and I can prove it.

This is a TYT video from May 2011 which I had not seen until this week. I was appalled. Not only because Bill and Ryan were discussing cuts to Medicare, but because it was Bill Clinton doing it.



He was not in office at that time. WTH business was it of his to be discussing ANYTHING about policy? What right did he have to be negotiating with Paul Ryan over cuts to our programs?

I remarked in that thread, "So he's to be the shadow President. Well isn't that a milestone for women?" Clearly this "first woman President" selling point is a fraud. What a great feminist icon, when in reality Hillary would be, and was at that time, a mere front for Bill.

I had NOT thought about the 2-term limit though. That is actually a very interesting question, now that you mention it. This video shows us the sort of thing Bill has been doing. He has been conducting the nation's business surreptitiously using Hillary as a screen. It is not at all unreasonable to expect that he will keep on doing in the future what he has already been doing in the past.

And that isn't the only indicator. Several writers on the email scandal are of the opinion that the private server was used so that Bill could have access to official documents, and have input into her role as Secretary of State. The Blackberry that Hillary was so adamant about having for herself and her staff, kept her in constant contact with her "coach" Bill and his staff.

The email hadn't made any sense to me until I thought about it this way. She had two motivations. One, to keep the Clinton Foundation pay-to-play transactions out of view at the State Department. And two, keeping Bill's participation out of State's view too.

I also have said here before, and I will say again, HRC's prior experience as Senator from New York and as Secretary of State are both offices that she probably would not have gotten if she had not been Bill Clinton's wife.

I don't believe Hillary Clinton has been doing any job on her own. Her own actions and choices have led to this being the most likely objective conclusion.

I think if the Republicans wanted to press this point about Bill's 3rd term, they might get some traction with it, given the video above. I think it's another potential liability, and worse, I think it's the truth of the matter.

It doesn't even need to be a stand-alone scandal, it fills in the gap between the two scandals that are already cooking.

This is my opinion on what the few facts we have now might mean all fitted together. Lots of pieces are not filled in yet, and so of course I could be wrong, but on the other hand I could be right. What all the pieces add up to is...

Hillary Clinton is a huge liability. She needs to withdraw before things get worse.
