Good grief. Today is the eve of the anniversary of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed a US ambassador and three other brave Americans. Our leadership left them there to die, they didn’t send in help as the attack went on for hours. Then they lied about it, blaming it on some stupid video. To this day we still haven’t gotten to the bottom of what happened that day and nobody has been held accountable. Now Jeb Bush is going to award Hillary Clinton the “Liberty Medal.” Un-freaking-believable.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) will honor former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with this year’s Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center. The award will be presented to Clinton on September 10th, the eve of the first anniversary of the terrorist attack on the United States mission in Benghazi that killed four Americans.
The Christian Science Monitor reports that Bush, a potential GOP contender in the 2016 presidential race, is chairman of the board of trustees of the National Constitution Center located in Philadelphia.
“Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy,” Bush said in a statement. “These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”
Bush’s decision to honor Clinton, who is considered by some to be a likely Democrat candidate for president in 2016, was condemned by the Independence Hall Tea Party Association of Philadelphia.
Read the whole thing. In announcing the award, the National Constitution Center also cited Clinton’s foreign policy “smart power.” I’m not making that up. After her tenure as Secretary of State our foreign policy is in tatters, and Jeb Bush is giving her a medal.
