Hillary group proclaims she’s guided by the Bible; Twitter roars with total disbelief

Twitter conservatives are having a field day with the latest effort by a group of religious organizations backing Hillary Clinton for president, ridiculing a Twitter post where the former first lady claims the Bible as an everlasting influence on her life.

Here is the post, put out by Faith4Hillary, a group that last made news in mid-May when it announced bumper stickers available touting Clinton’s nascent presidential campaign.

To be charitable, the influence of the Bible is not the first thing that comes to most people’s minds when they think about the life of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Nor is her trouble-ridden tenure as secretary of state — no matter what her partisans might say. Nor, for that matter, is her eminently forgettable single-term Senate career, which consisted mainly of keeping her in the headlines long enough to launch a failed presidential campaign in 2008.

Let’s face it, the influence of the Bible pales compared to the influence of Bill — the known liar, adulterer and widely suspected rapist who carried Hillary into the national eye in 1992 that she hasn’t left since.

Twitter responses were not charitable.

Here’s a sample, via Twitchy.com.

Some focused on Hillary’s widely perceived problems with telling what most of us think of as “the truth.”

Others hit on Hillary’s extreme pro-abortion views. In the Bill and Hillary Clinton formulation, abortion should be “safe, legal and rare,” with “rare” being defined as whenever a pregnant woman wishes to exercise her right to have one. (In March, Clinton gave a speech calling the importance of access to abortion on demand a “bedrock truth. “)

But for others, it was the one elment of clinton’s tenure as secretary of state that will always stand out:  the terrorist attack in Benghazi that left an American ambassador, a State Department staffer and two men on a security detail dead, and left a cloud of lies over Washington that hasn’t dispersed to this day.

And it’s a cloud that will overshadow any presidential run in 2016, regardless of media complicity in keeping it off the American public’s radar.

Does it?

To paraphrase a former president under much less serious circumstances, “that all depends upon what your meaning of the word ‘does’ is.”

Got it.
