Hillary Clinton has once again entered the race to become the President of the United States. Considered the odds-on-favorite to be the Democratic nominee, I would like to think she will answer my 5 Questions. I highly doubt she will.
As an American voter, I would hope that candidates would step up and answer, maybe if I had a REALLY big checkbook they would.
It can’t hurt, let me throw my questions out for Mrs. Clinton and see if I get a response.
FIVE QUESTIONS FOR HILLARY CLINTON:
1) In January of 2013, when testifying before the Senate, you were asked if the Obama Administration misled the American people about the facts of the Benghazi attacks. Your response was, “with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?” Mrs. Clinton, with all due respect, yes four Americans were dead and THAT is why it is important for us to know the truth about what happened, if we as Americans can’t trust our leaders to be honest with us, why should we trust anything you say as a candidate?
2) If the next President of the United States were a Republican, would you be comfortable with the President and their staff having their own personal email accounts and servers to conduct the business of the United States of America?
3) When former President Clinton was running for his first term, you made a famous statement about not being some Tammy Wynette standing by your man. (Paraphrased quote.) Aren’t you though? You stood beside your husband when he embarrassed our nation with his extra-marital affair and lied to the country, isn’t that the epitome of the song Wynette made famous?
4) As First Lady your husband signed DOMA, Don’t Ask Dont’ Tell, AIDS Travel Bans and spoke out against gay marriage. You never voiced an opposing opinion. During your term as a US Senator you never spoke out in favor of marriage equality. As Secretary of State you also never spoke out in favor of same-sex marriages. Now, as a candidate for President you state you are favor marriage equality for all Americans, it seems as though this “evolution” occurred just in time to run for President. Please tell me how the evolution happened and exactly when you came to your present stand on the issue, both in your heart and in your platform.
5) For over 30 years you have served the United States in a variety of roles; First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State. You are one of America’s most historic figures. As a woman you have broken through multiple glass ceilings and as an American you have served in a multitude of roles. With over 30 years of service, is there anything new you can bring to our nation, besides being a female President? Please name three things you will do as President, that will be new initiatives for the 21st century.
Ok, Hillary, there you go…. five questions from an American who votes, will you answer?
