With no real accomplishments as Secretary of State and much to defend while she occupied that position, Hillary Clinton signaled her upcoming presidential campaign strategy in a grand opening speech in San Francisco last week.
She threw down the dog eared and quite worn out Democrat hole card of racist scare tactics…..again.
If Hillary actually had something to offer besides being a woman with a burning ambition to be president, she would have featured it in her first unofficial campaign speech….
But as it turned out, her first speech inflamed paranoia in the black community by criticizing the recent Supreme Court decision striking down key provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. As if somehow, this decision would open the door for states to take the right to vote away from black voters…As if it is something that these states have been licking their chops to do.
I asked Richard Grenell, Fox News foreign policy expert, for a professional opinion on Hilary Clintons’ four year tenure as Secretary of State:
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton avoided dealing with all of the primary U.S. national security issues. Her four year tenure was unimpressive and disappointing. She failed to lead the U.S. in confronting the Syria crisis, the Iranian nuclear issue, the North Korean nuclear advancements and every other difficult foreign policy issue the U.S. was dealing with. It was as if Hillary calculated that doing nothing as Secretary of State would allow her to build her resume and avoid controversy. It was a selfish political move designed for personal gain.
But of course Hillary knows this decision has nothing to do with taking voting rights away from black voters, but has everything to do with ensuring there is integrity at the American ballot box, by requiring valid identification when voting or registering to vote.
