If you believe Hillary Clinton is a humble person in tune with the lives of everyday Americans…Damn, none of the usual jokes really do that justice, so we’ll just say that you should lay off the crack.

Anyway, what does Hillary think of herself? Well, she’s too politically savvy to come right I am so much more betterer than you!out and tell you how great she thinks she is, so she’s done what any arrogant person surrounded by sycophants does – she tells people what others think of her.

Speaking to a group in Iowa yesterday, Hillary had the following veiled praise for herself:

‘‘Voters will have to judge if living in a foreign country at the age of 10 prepares one to face the big, complex international challenges the next president will face. I think we need a president with more experience than that, someone the rest of the world knows, looks up to and has confidence in.”

Whomever could she be referring to at the end there?

Let’s look at her statement in two parts.

The first bit is clearly a swipe at Barack Obama, who only has 4 years in the U.S. Senate under his belt. Not exactly the most extensive resume on issues dealing with foreign policy, granted. But what about Hillary’s resume?

Her resume consists of 6 years in the U.S. Senate and, well, that’s about it. Did Hillary spend those extra 2 years in the State Department and not the Senate? Because she certainly couldn’t be referring to her time as First Lady of Arkansas, unless there were secret negotiations between Little Rock and, say, North Korea (something along the lines of, “Wait till my husband is President and we’ll give you everything you need to build a nuclear weapon, just as long as you pinky-swear not to use them for that.”) Sure, she was sent overseas on “Goodwill” missions while her husband was running the country, but those were more photo-ops and opportunities for Bill to stray than deep-rooted policy missions, especially since she had absolutely zero power as an agent of the United States government.

So her statement about herself is nothing more than a delusional self-image than a refection of any form of reality in this universe. But, if you think about, isn’t that how the Clintons have seen themselves since the beginning?

Second is the “Enough about me, let’s talk about you. What do you think of me?” portion of the statement. This needs little comment beyond pointing out that she said it about herself! If someone had a friend talking this way about themselves they would be tempted to punch them in the nose, not vote for them…at least for anything other than…
