Ayotte doesn’t deserve the privilege of representing NH voters

To The Daily Sun,

Kelly Ayotte needs to be a one term senator. Her "deer in the headlights" performance at the recent debate stating emphatically she would "absolutely" have no problem using Donald Trump as a role model for her children to emulate was indefensible. It showed Ayotte, the consummate politician, weighing what response would give her the most mileage with voters – especially extreme, right-wing voters.

The correct response, which she figured out three hours later, sounded like contrived, insincere backpedaling to spread oil over troubled waters.

New Hampshire voters deserve a senator who recognizes right from wrong behavior and is not afraid of alienating
people who choose, for whatever reason, to pretend rude, disgusting remarks are OK, not Kelly Ayotte.

She is the queen of "half-truths," which some refer to as "poison pills." For example, Ayotte voted in support of
funding for Zika virus control knowing full well it was tied to a decrease in funding for Planned Parenthood,
something Democrats could not support. She jumped at the opportunity to take credit telling a half-truth and
beat the Democrats up for defeating the bill, all the while hoping voters never discovered the real truth of why the bill failed.

Kelly Ayotte is a manipulative opportunist and New Hampshire deserves better. She does not deserve the privilege of
representing New Hampshire voters in Washington. Fortunately we have an outstanding choice in Maggie Hassan, a person of integrity who is not afraid to make tough decisions based on facts instead of political innuendo.

It’s unfortunate that the media has already crowned Hillary

To The Daily Sun,

How bad can Washington get?

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn't even get a vote in a Democratic Party-controlled Congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in costs for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood. Both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno. Husband Bill described her selection as "my worst mistake." Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas, resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovered of Ms. Guanier's radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger votes will have no knowledge of "Travelgate." Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson — and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a 36-month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.

Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than 30 years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the "bimbo eruption" and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:

— She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

— She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as special prosecutor.

-- After $80 million of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs. Hillary's devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for lying under oath to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, "I do not recall," "I have no recollection," and "I don't know" a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell party — ready for another four or eight years of corruption, lies and deception?

Now we are exposed to: the destruction of incriminating emails while Hillary was secretary of state and the "pay to play" schemes of the Clinton Foundation, backed by middle-eastern money.

Banghazi, open boarders, bad trade deals, Obamacare expansion, we have no idea what shoe will fall next but what difference does it make when you've shoveled 40 years of two-faced dirty political manipulation for personal gain.

It's unfortunate that the media has already decided that Hillary will be the next crowned Queen of America. The coronation will be held in January, the impeachment will start the next day! The rest of the world is laughing at this brand of democracy.

The one thing about this election, it has exposed all of the RINO's down in D.C. Kelly, if you cant support The Donald, then you support the Queen, you've lost my vote.

This "despicable," will be voting Trump-Pence in November, they may not be the cure, but they are better then the alternative. I've had enough of the bad taste the Clintons have left in my mouth.
