Hillary Clinton: Disqualified for PresidentEDITORIAL
July 27. 2016 11:40PM
The presidential nominating process comes to an official end tonight in Philadelphia when Hillary Clinton formally accepts the Democratic nomination.
Never before have the two political parties so utterly failed to give the American people an honorable choice.
Over a career spanning four decades of deceit and corruption, Hillary Clinton has disqualified herself from the presidency. But the Democratic Party has decided to simply ignore Clinton’s complete lack of integrity, and her and her husband’s use of public office to enrich themselves.
Scandals aside, and that’s quite a big aside, Hillary Clinton has failed to demonstrate any competence in government. Her signature health care effort as first lady was a legislative and political disaster. She was a seat-filling hack in the U.S. Senate. Her only positive accomplishment as secretary of state was racking up frequent-flyer miles.
The Obama-Clinton foreign policy team diminished American power and made the world more dangerous. China built into the South China Sea. Russia invaded its former client states. ISIS carved out territory from which it can spread death around the globe. And Iran received tacit permission to build a nuclear bomb.
Of course, Clinton’s disqualification from office doesn’t make Republican rival Donald Trump qualified to be President. And one of them is almost certain to be our next President.
The next three months are going to be awful.
