More of Hillary's "Qualifications".

A few more of the Presidential "qualifications" Hillary claims that aren't the whole truth:

-In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.

The facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.

-She spent a year after graduation working on a children's rights project for poor kids.

The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

-She could have worked anywhere, but she turned down all of the lucrative jobs offered her.

The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas, none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.

-President Jimmy Carter appointed her to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman.

The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be chairman.

-She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital.

The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

-She helped to create the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.

The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between President Bill Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals' tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.

-As Senator, Hillary kept fighting for children's and women's issues.

The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer's or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation. Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize the Woodstock fiasco of 40 years ago.

I can't for the life of me see where a career based on lies and half-truths make anyone qualified to serve as the President of the United States.

Your references are ludicrous.

Here, let me try your comparisons on you.

You work for a major Telecom which is under indictment. (per your Bio)

Therefore you personally are guilty by association and should be under indictment for violating the Civil Rights of all in America.

Yep. Your assessment makes sense all right.

What I find interesting is all men who bash Hillary suffer from "little man syndrome." Does this apply to you as well?

It seems that I've struck a nerve. Good!

Dee, there's a Huge difference between my employment and Hillary's "associations".

I do this work for two reasons:
1.) The money. (Yes, I believe in a capitalist economy.) If I was not paid well, I'd do someting else.
2.) I like my work, but if the people I work with and for were not on somewhat the same page about the things that I hold important then no amount of money would get me to work here.

Hillary associated with avowed Communists willingly. I find Communism on par with slavery. Socialism is just a hair above that.

If it's not obvious by my posts, you are right, I do bash Hillary. I don't like her, would never vote for her and would like to see her gone from political life altogether. That being said, let's move on to the topic in which you so like to call "little man syndrome". I wouldn't describe myself that way but you have your opinion. The reason I can't stand Hillary is her politics. Plain and simple. That's all that it is. Her socialist politics.
