Survey: What is Hillary's biggest weakness and why?

Open ended survey.

Edit for clarity:
What are Hillary's political weaknesses that we should repeat to acquaintances if we want to campaign against her?

How Putin’s Russia Gained Control of a U.S. Uranium Mine: Hillary approved it after donation

Since 2013, the nuclear energy arm of the Russian state has controlled 20 percent of America’s uranium production capacity.

Rosatom’s acquisition of Toronto-based miner Uranium One Inc. made the Russian agency, which also builds nuclear weapons, one the world’s top five producers of the radioactive metal and gave it ownership of a mine in Wyoming.

The deal, approved by a committee that included then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, also followed donations from Uranium One’s Canadian chairman to the Clinton Global Foundation, the New York Times reported on Thursday.

In an interview with Bloomberg News, Ian Telfer, the former Uranium One chairman and current chairman of Goldcorp Inc., said he pledged a donation of $3 million to the Clinton charity in March 2008, “when it was never contemplated that at some point in the future the Russian government would become a major shareholder of Uranium One.”

Hillary's "Mission Accomplished" Moment in Libya

Hillary's "Mission Accomplished" Moment in Libya:

Two days before, Mrs. Clinton had taken a triumphal tour of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, and for weeks top aides had been circulating a “ticktock” that described her starring role in the events that had led to this moment. The timeline, her top policy aide, Jake Sullivan, wrote, demonstrated Mrs. Clinton’s “leadership/ownership/stewardship of this country’s Libya policy from start to finish.” The memo’s language put her at the center of everything: “HRC announces … HRC directs … HRC travels … HRC engages,” it read.

Hillary's Disasterous Legacy in Libya



http://www.nytimes.com/video/us/politics/100000004216623/hillary-clintons-legacy-in-libya.html


There is a massive refugee crisis, the place is crawling with ISIS and Al Qaeda, unspeakable atrocities are being committed, and US weapons are escaping to terrorists all across Africa and destabilizing other countries.

The president was wary. The secretary of state was persuasive. But the ouster of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi left Libya a failed state and a terrorist haven.

As the secretary of state in 2011, Hillary Clinton pressed the Obama administration to intervene militarily in Libya, with consequences that have gone far beyond the fall of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi.

Bernie supporters: What should be our one big message for today?

What should be our one big message for the day after Super Tuesday?

Bonus: Give 2 or 3 messages for today instead of just 1.

Trying to think of some good messages for today to help spread these messages.

Newly Released Emails Confirm Clinton is to Blame for Libya Disaster

Clinton pushed and convinced Obama to destroy the Libyan government.

Now Libya is crawling with ISIS terrorists and there is a massive refugee crisis. Totally reckless and with complete disregard for the consequences. Mrs. Clinton practices all the worst tendencies of US foreign policy.


‘Bravo!’ Email Appears To Show Clinton’s Friend Congratulating Her on Bombing of Libya
The newly released email from Anne-Marie Slaughter belies Clinton’s attempts to distance herself from the military intervention


Hillary Clinton has spent much of her presidential campaign running away from her responsibility for the United States’ disastrous 2011 intervention in Libya. The February 19 release of more emails from her private server may make it harder for her to do so.

In an email with the subject “bravo!” sent on March 19, 2011—the day the United States and its allies began bombing Libya—Clinton confidant and former employee Anne-Marie Slaughter appears to praise then-Secretary of State Clinton for convincing a reluctant President Obama to take military action in Libya.

“I cannot imagine how exhausted you must be after this week, but I have NEVER been prouder of having worked for you,” writes Slaughter, who worked as an advisor to Clinton in the State Department from 2009 to February 3, 2011, and then remained a consultant to the policy planning bureau. “Turning POTUS around on this is a major win for everything we have worked for.” An earlier email release, which I reported on previously, showed that Slaughter had spent February 2011 imploring Clinton to involve the United States militarily in Libya, insisting that it would “change the image of the United States overnight.”

“Keep your fingers crossed and pray for a soft landing for everyone’s sake,” Clinton replies.

Other emails from earlier releases indicate that people close to Clinton gave her credit for the Libyan intervention. The day the UN Security Council approved a no-fly zone in Libya, Clinton’s unofficial adviser Sidney Blumenthal sent her an email saying: “No-fly! Brava! You did it!”
