Throughout the coverage of the Hillary e-mail scandal – I’ve been waiting and waiting for any of the “talking heads” to mention Obama’s battle to keep his Blackberry when he came into office. Throughout the months and months of discussions – nothing but crickets chirping and the same talking points.
In my opinion – Hillary and Bill Clinton are so completely out of touch with daily life for anyone else. There are so many examples that it could take all day to share them – but a couple of my “favorites” included the “dead broke” comment and then mentions having to pay for their houses. Excuse me – multiple houses?? You aren’t dead broke because you can’t afford multiple houses. And another “favorite” was mentioned this morning where she “admitted” that using her own server was a mistake – but her reasoning is because it is inconveniencing her and her friends. Seriously??? No mention of the millions of dollars being spent by the taxpayers to dig through her lies. The government employees being tied up to deal with this and determine what really happened, and on and on.
But here’s my point and no one is talking about it –
Anyone who was watching what was happening when Obama was first sworn into office, knows there was a lot of hoopla about him keeping his Blackberry. There was a lot of media coverage – by all outlets – about what would have to be done to his phone to make it “safe” for him to use. Okay – so the Secretary of State should be required to have the same type of security on her phone, e-mail and more. I realize Hillary is very insulated from reality and in her own little world – but someone among her advisors and staff had to know about the Obama battle to keep his phone. So, why didn’t Hillary and her staff need to go through the same process?
Here’s the bottom line — Hillary and Bill feel they are above the law. Hillary is willing to do or say anything to anyone to get what she wants, she feels entitled to the presidency and the list goes on and on. She has shown a disregard for the laws of the country, truth and honesty seem to just get in her way and she’s shown a disregard for the security of the United States. In what alternate universe other than “Clinton World” – how does that kind of person have any chance to become the next president? Haven’t we had more than enough of people who are impressed with their “celebrity” and who have used their office to line their pockets and build up their personal rolodex?
I don’t know about you – but I’ve certainly had more than enough.
Article from 2009 about Obama’s Blackberry –
For more than two months, Mr. Obama has been waging a vigorous battle with his handlers to keep his BlackBerry, which like millions of other Americans he has relied upon for years to stay connected with friends and advisers. (And, of course, to get Chicago White Sox scores.)
He won the fight, aides disclosed Thursday, but the privilege of becoming the nation’s first e-mailing president comes with a specific set of rules.
“The president has a BlackBerry through a compromise that allows him to stay in touch with senior staff and a small group of personal friends,” said Robert Gibbs, his spokesman, “in a way that use will be limited and that the security is enhanced to ensure his ability to communicate.”
