After laying low for several months, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came back with a bang this week when in an interview she refused to take the blame for her election lose, and instead claimed that she could have won if the election had been a few weeks earlier.
Clinton blamed FBI Director James Comey, sexism, the media, Russia and Wikileaks for her defeat in November 2016. Her refusal to face reality flies in sharp contrast to what then-President George H.W. Bush did when he lost to Democrat nominee Bill Clinton in 1992, Independent Journal Review reported.
Rather than blame everyone except himself, Bush chose to write Clinton a letter before he left the Oval Office for the last time, congratulating him on his win and wishing him nothing but success in the years to come.
“I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the loneliness some presidents have described,” Bush wrote.
“There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair. I’m not a very good one to give advice; but just don’t let the critics discourage you or push you off course,” the letter read.
That’s what true class looks like. Bush wasn’t petty or jealous. He accepted what had happened, and he chose to put aside any personal animosity in order to ensure a peaceful transfer of power.
“You will be our president when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well. Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you,” he wrote.
While Clinton did initially accept her defeat (she even showed up at the inauguration), her comments this week indicate that she isn’t planning to just sit around quietly anymore.
Remember all the hype when Trump suggested that he might not accept the results of the election if he thought it was rigged? Well, now Clinton is doing exactly that, yet the liberal media isn’t saying very much about it.
If Clinton wants to comment on politics, that is her right. However, she needs to accept that Trump won the election fair and square, and that she, and she alone, is responsible for her defeat.
