We all heard GOP presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina say “If you want to stump a Democrat” ask them to name “an accomplishment of Hillary Clinton.”
That has become an accepted talking point of the right lately: name a Hillary Clinton accomplishment (Can you?).
Even though becoming a United States Senator and Secretary of State are accomplishments in of themselves, I’ll give Republicans the benefit of the doubt in assuming they mean specific accomplishments during those positions.
Well, if they really want to find out, all they have to do is go to the nearest Barnes & Noble bookseller or log onto Amazon.com and order a copy of Clinton’s 2014 memoir Hard Choices in which she chronicles the many accomplishments (and setbacks) during her time as Secretary of State.
However, Clinton is taking it a step further. She sent out a copy of her book to 14 of the Republican contenders with a personalized letter asking them to join a book club!
The letter is as follows (but each of the 14 addresses each candidate by their specific name):
I understand that you and your fellow Republican candidates for president were questioning my record of accomplishments at your last debate, so I thought you might enjoy reading my book, Hard Choices. From working to restore America’s standing in the world to bringing crippling sanctions to Iran to negotiating a ceasefire in Gaza, please enjoy all 596 pages of my time as secretary of state. With 15 candidates in the race, you’ve got enough people for a book club!
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Ted Cruz reciprocated, tweeting at the former Secretary he will read her book if she reads his book A Time For Truth, and Governor Bobby Jindal responded that he too will read her book if she watches the Planned Parenthood videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.
Now that Republicans have been given a public opportunity by the one-and-only, their talking point of “name one accomplishment” like the Benghazi talking point, is going down the drain. Now there are no excuse for their ignorance of the facts.
