My main interest in watching Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech was not to hear what she had to say or how she would say it. I already knew. It would be the standard Hillary speech full of one-liners, harsh barbs aimed at Donald Trump, a laundry list of liberal goals, and lies all delivered with that Spade Cooley look that suggests she has lost her mind over the years. She didn't disappoint.
Hillary repeated the convention theme that is so contradictory. While heaping praise on President Obama, she talked about all the inequities, injustices and wrongs that she intends to fix. Why didn't Obama fix them? Which one is it?
Nor did I overlook those throw away lines in which she referred to our military as a "national treasure". This from the woman who as first lady didn't want the military aides attached to the White House to wear their uniforms. This from the woman who reportedly told a general who made the mistake of saying, "Good morning" to her one day in the White House to "F-off". The rule in those days was that you did not speak to the first lady or even make eye contact with her unless she addressed you first. No amount of words from Chelsea Clinton telling us of how warm and fuzzy her mother is can wipe that away.
Nor can it wipe away the contempt she has for law enforcement. Hillary also threw out a line about appreciating the cops who protect us, but the worst assignment a Secret Service agent can draw is guarding Hillary, who has always made it her habit to scream insults at them.
When it is all said and done, what is left is Hillary the liar. What is left is Hillary the corrupt, money grubbing woman who charged $200,000-300,000 a speech including from Wall Street groups like Goldman-Sachs, but who tells us she is going to clean up Wall Street. What is left is her email server scandal and the Justice Department white wash. What is left is a tenure at the State Department full of nothing but policy failures. What is left is the corrupt Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, the biggest money laundering scheme in US political history. What is left is her non-performance at Benghazi and subsequent lies about a video and cover-up.
What is left is Hillary Clinton- the real person.
