How to stump a Hillary Clinton supporter: ask them to name a single one of her accomplishments.
There are countless “man on the street” videos stumping Hillary Clinton supporters with that simple question, many of them thinking being a woman alone is an accomplishment worthy of qualifying her for the presidency. But apparently even her colleagues can’t list a single accomplishment of the candidate whom Barack Obama described as the most qualified presidential candidate in history (using a very low bar, apparently).
Here’s a few DNC members asked to name a single accomplishment of hers…. back in 2014.
Okay, now they’ve had two years to figure something out. And how has that turned out? As Townhall reports: Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) had some trouble naming a single accomplishment of Hillary Clinton’s during her tenure as secretary of state on Tuesday. CNN’s Chris Cuomo was the one who asked her about it, where she said that she got on that plane and brought people together.
To quote, “You know … she was an outstanding secretary of state,” Dingell said. “She worked on issues from one side of the world to the other. She got on that plane and she brought people together, and in the [Middle] East, it’s one of the most volatile regions of the country. I know it, because I’m living in Dearborn, Michigan, which has the largest population of Muslims. There are difficult times, but she has the trust and respect of the leaders of those countries.”
Aside from the bizarre (and frankly, terrifying) comment that Dearborn, Michigan is somehow comparable to the Middle East, I can’t seem to find the examples of her bringing people together in that volatile region. Liberals certainly can’t be thrilled about her support for the Iraq War, nor should anyone see any success in her strategy of toppling foreign governments (like Libya) which were replaced with groups like the Muslim Brotherhood or ISIS. Hillary’s foreign policy hasn’t turned out well for the Muslim community globally, and if her response to the Benghazi attacks were any indication, it hasn’t for our troops or diplomatic staff either.
The reason none of these people can’t list a single Hillary accomplishment isn’t because they’re stupid – it’s because the question asks them to respond with something that doesn’t exist.
