Hillary Clinton: The Best We Can Do?

When Wayne LaPierre took the stage in Nashville, the NRA executive vice president and CEO called for sending leaders to Washington “who are among America’s very best.” He then went on to outline why Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has announced her candidacy, was anything but America’s very best.

He recounted her triumphs as secretary of state (none), and reminded us of her scandals (“almost endless”). He questioned values like honesty, integrity and virtue, and wondered who she is really serving—the people … or herself. And LaPierre ultimately concluded that, if elected, “Hillary Clinton will bring a permanent darkness of deceit and despair forced upon the American people to endure.”

LaPierre also vowed NRA will fight with everything it has. “We will not let our Bill of Rights be Hillary’s new server, wiped from the pages of history.”
