Could Bob Gates’s memoir Haunt Hillary Clinton in 2016 … “Hillary told the president that her opposition to the [2007] surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa Primary”

 

Imagine that, Hillary Clinton doing something for political purposes … Is this woman really Presidential timber?

Say it isn’t so, who would possibly think that anyone with the last name of Clinton would do some thing for political purposes, rather than conviction. Thus comes the bombshell from Bob Gates new book where the former secretary of War says that  “Hillary told the president that her opposition to the [2007] surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary.” Nice, so she fakes a position knowing that a surge was needed, but puts a mission in danger for political purposes. But that begs the question, what hasn’t Hillary done in her lifetime that was not political?

Take a real good look at what many believe will be the next president of the United States. God Help Us.

To Hillary Clinton, What Difference Does It Make … ITS ALL POLITICAL!

In a new memoir of his time as secretary of defense in the Obama administration, Gates writes: “Hillary told the president that her opposition to the [2007] surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary. .?.?. The president conceded vaguely that opposition to the Iraq surge had been political. To hear the two of them making these admissions, and in front of me, was as surprising as it was dismaying.”

Oomph.  Just to jog your memory, Clinton announced that she opposed the Iraq surge being pushed by President George W. Bush in the days leading up to the announcement of her presidential bid. She instead proposed a freeze in troop levels in the country and advocated for a troop increase in Afghanistan.

The stories written at the time mentioned how Clinton was coming under pressure from the increasingly vocal anti-war left to oppose the troop surge — particularly given that it was becoming increasingly obvious that then-Sen. Barack Obama, who, unlike Clinton, opposed the Iraq war from the start, was going to be her main rival for the nomination. Opposing the surge was cast by many political observers as a sign to the left that she had evolved since her vote for the use-of-force resolution earlier in the decade.

Kind of makes you wonder why she did what she did with Benghazi and refused to fortify the consulate prior to September 11, 2012, even after repeated requests were made to do so. Nothing political there either, hmm?

But of course as Hillary says … WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!

      Hillary is no different than Obama when it comes to choices regarding her political ambitions. She admitted in a news interview in 2008 that she was a Progressive. That IMO is the same as being a Socialist. Progressive/Socialists are all about turning the Constitution of the United States into a worthless document and making themselves the source of law.
