Skip to comments.Hillary's Empty Foreign Portfolio

Election 2008: One by one, the medals that Commander Hillary has pinned to her chest are falling away like so many leaves and flowers withering into the truth.
Pray tell, what international experience could a former first lady bring to the table?
"You know," she said, "helping to support the peace process in Northern Ireland, negotiating to open borders so that (Kosovar) refugees fleeing ethnic cleansing would be safe, going to Beijing and standing up for women's rights as human rights and so much else."
Hillary claims her "lifetime of experience" matches that of GOP hopeful John McCain, a war hero who's been involved in every major national security event over the past 25 years. By comparison, all Barack Obama can bring is "speeches," she sniffed.
But it turns out Hillary exaggerated her list of foreign policy accomplishments, which is really quite pathetic given how scrawny they already appeared.
First, she never played a key role in brokering peace in Northern Ireland, according to former first minister David Trimble, who said she had no direct role in the talks. Her husband, the president, was engaged in the talks, yes, said Trimble. But Hillary essentially was just along for the ride.
"I don't want to rain on the thing for her," Trimble said, "but being a cheerleader for something is slightly different from being a principal player."

yes hillary has accomplished a lot for China
Seems like we have 2 candidates with empty folders and empty heads wanting to control the world. Sounds like a Dr. Evil sequel
I called BS when Hillary first tried to claim that she aided the N. Ireland peace process. I was there during the majority of the negotiations on business. I was there when the ‘toons were touring (twice).
The Belfast Telegraph would be a Clinton backer. But, this claim was so transparent, they had to out her, just to save face....
Excuse us Hillary dear, we did not elect you to anything in the White House, nothing, zilch! More proof of what we always knew, that scum will do anything to get elected!!!
Problem is that neither Obama or McCain has CHALLENGED her claim to be “Expert at Foreign Policy”.
Since Klintons know if you repeat a lie enough times it sticks, they are going to keep making all these claims, where it feels like she has already been a President once.
By giving her room to make these claims, Mcbama are setting themselves up for failure.
Well, once we bump her out of the race for President, she can always apply for Spitzer’s job as Gubner of New Yawk! Way to go, Elliot, you pants-around-the-ankles putz, LOL! Makes sense you’d need to PAY for sex. *SHIVER*
But who are we kidding? This beotch is unqualified to hold ANY office in the land!
Can’t wait to see her future “Perp Walk.” I want her downfall to be public, humiliating and PERMANENT.
"All the World is MY oyster. and all of YOU are the oyster shuckers...so get busy, Suckers!"
