Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy record
Sen. Marco Rubio attacked Hillary Clinton on her record as Secretary of State, while ignoring Condoleezza Rice’s spotty record during the Bush administration. Talk about hubris.
Secretary of State John Kerry had a great comeback during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” — “Secretary of State Clinton did a terrific job of rebuilding alliances that had been shredded over the course of the prior years.”
Here’s a partial transcript from “This Week:”
But I will say that Secretary of State Clinton did a terrific job of rebuilding alliances that had been shredded over the course of the prior years. She spent a lot of time, as you know, working on a number of different issues, including the beginning of the effort with Iran, as well as the Gaza cease-fire and other things.
She will defend, I know, her own record for herself. It’s not my job to do it.
But I wish her well in this race and I look forward to being able to stay well away from it.
Dick Cheney would have us think that we lived in paradise during the George W. Bush administration and that we were loved on the international stage. Thanks to he and Condoleezza Rice we were widely reviled. They burned diplomatic bridges. Hillary Clinton worked tirelessly to rebuild those bridges.
Republicans want to obsess over Benghazi, with numerous investigations, all of which have shown no cover-up occurred. They are deflecting from the numerous embassy attacks that happened under George W. Bush’s watch. Hillary’s foreign policy experience is a discussion I am sure she welcomes.
Marco Rubio should do his homework. Hillary Clinton did hers.
