For John, BLUF: Admit it and move on. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Miss Elise Jordan,♠ of NBC, got an item in Time, a couple of days ago.
Here is the sub-headline:
'It's not only about what the Clintons did, but how they react'So, the story starts out with a personal remembrance:
I recently sliced the tip of my toe on an ocean barnacle. This happened at 6pm on a Friday of a long-awaited beach weekend, so I avoided the emergency room for stitches.Does no one on the Clinton team remember the aphorism "It's not the crime, it's the coverup"?
Overdosing on rosé was no cure. My minor wound kept bleeding. I finally went to the doctor when I got home where I got crutches, antibiotics for the infection, and an avoidable weeklong recovery for a tiny cut, for no reason other than my bullheadedness.
As I watch Hillary Clinton wish away the fallout of the Clinton Foundation’s unseemly ties with the State Department during her tenure as Secretary of State, I can’t help but think that her self-inflicted wound just bleeds and bleeds and bleeds. Every day that she fails to seriously address the rotten consequences of her poor judgment, Clinton further erodes the already lacking public trust in her. By avoiding a sincere display of contrition, she risks her candidacy and the foundation her family built.
Had young Lawyer Clinton left the the Watergate Committee, and Washington, before we learned that lesson?
Ms Clinton brings all the paranoia of Richard Nixon, but without the Foreign Policy acumen.
Hat tip to the Breitbart.
Regards — Cliff
