A good portion of NBC's Meet The Press was devoted to Chuck Todd becoming more intimately acquainted with Rand Paul (R-KY). Paul claimed that Libya was "Hillary's War." No challenge by Todd, of course, this was a very complimentary homage to the flip-flopping foreign policy fraud, Rand Paul. The "serious" candidate has somehow evolved into a more hawkish Republican, abandoning his previous stance of non-intervention. But he's the trustworthy one.

Just ask radio host, Hugh Hewitt. He claims that Rand Paul is a "high trust candidate," which he bases on the fact that he receives only a fraction of the scrutiny endured by the Clintons. It's the right wing meme today, all regurgitating the talking point that Hillary is untrustworthy. Hewitt was just reading from his GOP memo briefing, which all Sunday show guests must read and sign before appearing on the teevee.

Todd asked Hewitt if Bill Clinton would be an asset on the campaign trail. He says,

"Hillary is a low trust candidate. Bill Clinton is a lower trust candidate.

(Bill isn't running, but don't tell Hugh that.) Why? Because,

if you look at "Syria, Libya, all these things, Bill Clinton is not an asset.

That's because Bill Clinton was president from 1993-2001 so he was directly responsible for.....BENGHAZI in 2012.

It's highly unlikely that anyone who reads this lends any credence to Hugh Hewitt In fact, if you've listened to this guy for more than one minute, you likely have called this clown's bluff very quickly. Let's look back to 2013, when Hewitt staunchly defended Michele Bachmann from mean liberals. In summary:

See, every Republican who's run out of office (Nixon, DeLay), quits (Palin, Bachmann) or just beclowns themselves (Akin, O'Donnell) didn't fall because they were criminal, corrupt or just plain incompetent. No, it's always the "venomous hatred" of "the Left" that's their undoing.

The high-trust candidate, Paul, was given a pass on his piss poor performance during his very bad, no good first week of interviews. In fact, Todd even gives him an excuse, asking him if he's not a "morning person." I can't imagine what would've happened if this had been Mrs. Clinton.
