Now that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is unemployed, here is a synopsis of the world situations she was engaged in and responsible for during her tenure:
In China, officials whom she upset would not even meet with her for the last three years. Regarding North Korea, our attempts to talk with them never got off the ground and they are now threatening to launch long-range nuclear missiles at us.
Egypt, a former staunch ally, is now run by the Muslim Brotherhood, to whom we are selling sophisticated weaponry. Meanwhile, Iran has totally rejected any of our peace overtures as well as nuclear talks and is ready to blow Israel off the map.
Russia has resumed its Cold War posture toward the U.S., and Israel, our closest Middle East ally, doesn't trust us to help defend them anymore.
Finally, our ambassador and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya, and Hillary slithers out of town leaving others to take the blame.
It's obvious Ms. Clinton wasn't ready for that "3 a.m. phone call" she claimed presidential candidate Barack Obama couldn't handle. This is the legacy we will remind her of in 2016.
