In this case, it’s Hillary “Madam Coverup” Clinton geting the 2013 Liberty Award from the ironically-named National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Hey, how about we pump the irony meter up to 11 and do it a day before the year’s anniversary of her getting the consulate in Benghazi killed, then covering it up?
The award is to be presented by former Florida governor Jeb Bush. Aww…talk about bringing the two sides together, eh? And hey! maybe women will like the Republicans now…is that the thinking? Well, with respect to Rush Limbaugh — that ain’t it.
The simple fact is this: the political class don’t actually care about party. They’re mostly Progressives masquerading as conservatives and “liberals”. Those that aren’t Progressives, however, are still part of this elitist club of halfwits with degree from prestigious schools, and little else on their resumes but bilking the people.
“The Liberty Medal recognizes individuals who have furthered the ideals of freedom, democracy, and equality, often against great odds,” said Jeffrey Rosen, National Constitution Center president and CEO. “Hillary Clinton has devoted her life to expanding opportunities for `We the People’ not just in this country but around the globe.”
This is especially laughable. What has Clinton done? When she wasn’t running shady real estate deals in Arkansas, she was her husband’s pointwoman on an attempt to nationalize a sixth of the economy — which I’m sure would have resulted in the kind of quality care you can only get in Venezuela. What about her time as a Senator — lackluster, with no major legislation to speak of. Secretary of State — let’s see, we’ve lost the respect of every nation on the planet, she was sidelined by the Egyptian revolts against Mubarak, she cocked up the Libyan situation then lied — knowingly and actively — to the American people. Her actions led to the arrest on trumped up charges of a filmmaker who is still in jail and had not seen the inside of a courtroom.
So much for freedom. Democracy? Have you looked at the recipients of the “Arab Spring?” Equality…and what great odds? Other than an imaginary moment of danger flying into Bosnia (an event already proven to have never happened) the only danger she’s been in is having to stand before a grand jury.
This kind of thing is a sad joke, a game of attaboy the political class plays with each other to remind themselves of how awesome they are.
