Slaying the Structured Investment Vehicle Monster with the double-edged sword of transparency


It is in Hillary Clinton's best interests not to provide access to the press. If for no other reason than to stop those pesky reporters from questioning her carefully crafted media messages. Or, if they are really rude, ask her to justify her actions when she served as Bill Clinton's war-time  Consigliere. 

According to the Washington Times...

"When Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton wants to get a message out, her presidential campaign handpicks news outlets. Or, in some cases, bypasses the media entirely."

"The New York Democrat's third-quarter fundraising blowout was leaked to the Drudge Report. She made sure an Iowa newspaper printed her comments that she found Sen. Barack Obama's answer to a foreign-policy question 'irresponsible' and 'naive.' She also uses her 'Hillary Hub' campaign creation to break news."

"The strategy allows Mrs. Clinton — who rarely holds press availabilities — to avoid taking questions from reporters who cover her campaign and who might have detailed follow-up queries to her carefully planned policy announcements. "

"Mrs. Clinton's rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination have been painting her as someone who dodges tough questions or parses answers to difficult issues. Her opponents stepped up the pressure after it was revealed her campaign staff planted two questions with supporters at a campaign event." 

"The campaign has been tightly controlled from the start, with Mrs. Clinton announcing her candidacy in a Web video and negotiating strict terms for her appearances on network morning shows, according to published reports."

"If transparency is such a big part of the campaign, why are the availabilities so few and far between and so short? Surely you can answer some questions," the reporter complained. "

Who needs another President who hides behind the cloak of secrecy to craft legislation on mortgage rules, immigration reform and a host of other issues? Who wants a president who has a previous record of duplicity, chaos and corruption? Who needs a candidate who thinks that having a vagina is a shortcut to the White House because women make up over 50% of the population? Who needs a candidate who is so shrill and tightly focused that she scares most people in America?

What can YOU do?

With all of her negatives and polarizing personality, who needs Hillary Clinton to bring further chaos and corruption back into the White House. The only positive is that maybe she will return some of the things that were inappropriately removed from the People's House and wound up at her house after the election.

Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for personal power, prestige or profits.
