Hillary Speechmaking Tour Shares Valuable Lessons with America

hillary clinton what difference does it make

The New York Times reports on how Hillary Clinton, America’s greatest top diplomat since John “Egypt Boat” Kerry, is cashing in during her very temporary retirement.

Just a few months after leaving the State Department, Hillary Rodham Clinton has plunged into the lucrative world of paid speechmaking, joining a branch of the family business that has brought the Clintons more than $100 million since her husband left the White House in 2001.

For about $200,000, Mrs. Clinton will offer pithy reflections and Mitch Albom-style lessons from her time as the nation’s top diplomat. (“Leadership is a team sport.” “You can’t win if you don’t show up.” “A whisper can be louder than a shout.”)

She sticks around for handshakes and picture-taking, but the cost of travel, and whether a private jet is provided, must be negotiated as part of her fee.

Convention organizers are eager to pay Mrs. Clinton, and, since leaving office in February, she has embarked on a packed schedule of events for groups like the American Society of Travel Agents and the National Association of Realtors.

As useful as it is to inform audiences of bored people waiting to get out for some burgers that “Leadership is a team sport” and “You can’t win if you don’t show up” (Hillary did show up and didn’t win), it doesn’t sound like those are really the lessons that Hillary learned while letting four Americans die in Benghazi and handing a misspelled reset button to the Russkis.

How about informing the National Association of Realtors that the real lesson is “What difference does it make”. Sure you sold a home to a nice couple with three kids that’s located on an Indian burial ground/toxic waste dump. But really what difference does it make?

Or how about telling the American Society of Travel Agents that sure you may have suggested Libya as a great resort destination to that elderly couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and now there are pictures of their corpses being paraded around by America’s friendly Islamist allies… but really what difference does it make?

What difference does anything make when a woman responsible for worse is prepping to run for president while collecting 200k per speech.

    The culture where many pay thousands of dollars to listen to whackos who are failures (except in corruption) and who get rich off of lies, patronage, intimidation, bribes, shakedowns, and murder, is a dead one. That the Clintons and Obamas are actually respected and admired proves the culture is quite sick and getting sicker by the day.

    This is rich: “You can’t win if you don’t show up.” Like, the four Americans couldn’t win because help never showed up, because the help was ordered to stand down. Yeah, right. Hillary. After everything that’s happened since at least Benghazi, why would anyone want to hear what she has to say about anything? Are so many Americans deaf, dumb and blind to her character?

    It’s the Democrats, stupid. Name one Democrat who would leave the country better off after four years as President. The whole party is so twisted, we cannot draw any of our leaders from it and survive. Democrats are a curse to the working man, to children, to women, to minorities, and to our economic and political freedom. They will sink us, if we let them.

    “Leadership is a team sport”

    You’d think people would pay to shut her up instead!

    This gluttonous cow goes about filling her trough. It’s a dry run, void of satisfaction. The feeding frenzy for power and fame that she longs for is within her grasp. Do your part to crush her dreams.

  • William James Ward

    She says “you can’t win if you don’t show up”, well if she was
    thinking that at Benghazi she is culpable in the deaths of Americans.

    She’s paid to make an inane speech, but the main purpose is for the political and financial shenanigans behind the scenes. Lots of backroom dealing going on at those “speeches”. It’s more of a way for those seeking influence and power to communicate with Heir Hitlary et al.

    I saw my first “I’m ready for Hillery” bumper sticker. Seriously!? So the dude you voted for the last time turned out to be a total, utter, complete, horrible disaster, and you’re admitting it with that bumper sticker, and you’re going to vote for the other socialist instead. “Oh, but this socialist is better than the other socialist”, “No no, it’ll work this time”.

    Yes I heard about the news. Lots of
    issues are there concerning the travel and tourism. Yet the travel regards are
    also interesting and enjoyable like when you travel some popular tourist places
    like Kashmir tourism places in India and the Singapore
    destinations etc. The travel and trip lovers always wish to enjoy their tourism
    with great amount of enjoyment.
