Hillary Clinton has a hard time with taking responsibility. Everything is, seemingly, everybody else’s fault when critics point-out her negligent and criminal actions. However, when it’s time to hit the campaign trail, she is quick to remind everybody of all of her supposed accomplishments.
In other words: she’s willing to take credit for things the Obama Administration and so prominently reference the actions of the Clinton Administration, but when it comes time to explain why she broke laws, why she left Americans to die and why she lied repeatedly to the American people about these criminal acts, she’s unwilling to take responsibility while asserting that she’s willing to take responsibility.
It’s a fascinating glimpse into the mind of the truly narcissistic and deranged.
Congressman Trey Gowdy has noticed. The head of the investigative committee dedicated to finding the truth about the Benghazi terrorist attacks that left four Americans dead has revealed that he’s just as baffled as the rest of America when it comes to figuring out what, exactly, Hillary is supposedly taking responsibility for.
When asked last Thursday immediately after Hillary’s testimony before the committee what, exactly, the committee had learned from her testimony, Gowdy replied, “I’d have to go back and look at the transcript.”
Some would assert that his conclusion is validation of the often-charged accusation that the committee is a waste of time. In reality, the fact that Gowdy has yet to obtain any clear understanding from the former Secretary of State speaks to the heart of the depth of Hillary’s unwillingness to remain accountable for her actions.
On Sunday, Gowdy appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” and asserted,
“When she’s asked whether she takes responsibility, she says, ‘Yes.’ But when you ask, ‘Responsibility for what?’ I can’t tell you what she’s taking responsibility for.”
Gowdy’s succinct analysis is directly on-point; though few had the opportunity to sit for 11 hours as Hillary dodged accountability before the committee, the reports of her testimony indicate that she was quick to feign humility and take supposed responsibility for the negligence that help create the deaths. However, her testimony and repeated denials that she has done anything wrong directly refute her supposed willingness to take responsibility.
It’s the same for her email scandal; from the beginning of questions surrounding her betrayal of national security, Hillary has alternated between periods of supposed humility and assertions that she has done nothing wrong to scapegoating staffers under her command.
We all had that parent or that teacher who uttered these words at some point in our life: “You’re not sorry; you’re sorry you got caught.”
Hillary continues to fight uphill as poll after poll reveals that Americans simply don’t trust her. It’s not hard to see why; the 2016 contender is pathologically incapable of being on-the-level with the people and seemingly only willing to stretch to take credit for accomplishments that are not her own and unwilling to take full responsibility for the criminals acts she has perpetrated or, at the very least, which occurred under her command.
