How disheartening that our media and Fourth Estate are infatuated with the prospect of  Hillary Clinton as Barack Obama’s 2016 successor. It seems they have already  anointed her our next President without any elective process or careful consideration of her failed record..

Forgotten is the fact that her tenure as Secretary of State was marked by deception, lies and a politically motivated cover-up of the Benghazi terrorist attack. Both she and we now know it had nothing to do with an inconsequential anti-Islamic video.

We also know that under Barack Obama’s and her leadership America has lost power, prestige and respect among both international friends and enemies. Yes, Osama Bin Laden is dead but al-Qaida is alive, growing and becoming more dangerous.

When America is forced to close embassies in 20 different countries because of potential al-Qaida terrorist attacks, it is directly attributable to our perceived weakness, appeasement and failure to identify, criticize and counter radical Islamic terrorism at home and abroad.

Hillary Clinton’s now infamous comment, “ What difference does it make?” concerning four murdered Americans in Benghazi did make a difference. It was a thoughtless and cruel comment that made a huge difference to their friends, families and loved ones. It also represents an enormous difference when public officials do not tell the truth.

Wishing America’s future and safety be entrusted to someone weak, naïve and incompetent could place future generations in extreme danger.
