President Obama should have learned by now never to endorse anyone or anything.
He endorsed Trayvon Martin, and his killer George Zimmerman went free.
He endorsed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egyptian elections, and the Egyptian people and military chased them out of office.
He endorses theories about man-made global warming, and the planet stays cool.
He endorsed regime change in Libya, and we got Benghazi.
Then yesterday, he endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, and one hour later, his very own spokesmonkey Josh Earnest acknowledged the FBI probe into Clinton’s emails is a “criminal investigation.”
RNC spokesman Michael Short said, “This is another reminder of her reckless conduct as Obama’s secretary of state, where her attempt to skirt government transparency laws exposed highly classified information and put our national security at risk.”
Personally, I can’t wait to see Earnest try to weasel out of this one, because he’s basically the only person in the Obama Administration to admit what most of America already suspected: The Democratic presidential nominee played fast and loose with national security, to the point of breaking the law.
In his video recording endorsing Clinton, Obama said, “I know how hard this job can be. That’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it. In fact, I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office.”
Her insistence on using her own personal server, based at her home, apparently left classified and top secret State Department communications vulnerable. Her system was reportedly hacked by Russia, South Korea, China and Germany.
Security on her server was so lax, in fact, that it was hacked by a private Romanian computer user named Guccifer, who then shared his exploit with the world.
All of this email scandal is on top of the dozens of other scandals Clinton has left in her wake, many of which probably should have resulted in criminal prosecution if she weren’t so politically connected.
A Hillary presidency will make Obama’s crooked Administration look like common street criminals.
For anyone who might still be thinking of voting for Clinton because they just can’t abide Donald Trump, consider that her email system was like a piece of Swiss cheese and exposed hundreds of national secrets and sensitive security matters.
Now imagine that same Hillary in charge of keeping nuclear launch codes safe.
Is the picture becoming clearer?
