Hypocrites in Patriot's garb...
Well, they're at it again. No sooner does Hillary Clinton enter the presidential race than the GOP, the party of holier-than-thou hypocrisy dives in with cheap shots about foreign donations on her watch, screaming constitutional violations, conflict of interest and illegality.
Seriously? This is the same party that would justify secret prisons, torture, wiretapping, detention without charge or trial...The list goes on. It seems the GOP only dusts off the constitution when it suits them. George W. Bush was the one torturing people in foreign gulags, but Barack Obama is the one they compare with Joseph Stalin. Why? For insisting on affordable health care.
Conflict of interest? This is the party that wants us to think corporations are people, and have the right to buy elections like they were apples from a fruit stand? I guest they're saying it's okay for American corporations to pour money into our political system; just not foreigners. Not that they have a problem shipping American jobs overseas or knuckling under to Red China when it serves the interests of big business. Their only problem with conflict of interest is that they don't want anything conflicting with their interests. Which may well trample over the country's interests.
