    I am not trolling. I'd love to hear your response.
    Considering that certain posters angrily demanded to know what Hillary's accomplishments have been, I want to hear if you can name ONE thing that the Republican Party has done in the past twenty years that has improved people's lives generally.

    Just one. Anyone?......Bueller?.......

    Well we know Hillary's accomplishments, particularly in her pet issues of child welfare, health care, and women's rights:

    - My favorite thing she's done: her 1995 Beijing Speech on women's rights as First Lady, over the objections of her husband's administration, shamed human rights organizations into recognizing worldwide misogyny and sexism as a major issue
    - As Arkansas first lady, she was crucial and early supporter of Head Start programs
    - In her private career, she helped Wal-Mart grow into one of the world's largest companies in the 80s as a Board member
    - As a hospital board member, she expanded rural access to health care
    - As First Lady, she was the driving force behind expanding children's access to healthcare in her husband's second term
    - As Senator, she championed minimum wage increases and co-authored minimum wage bills
    - As Senator and Sec of State, she helped convince Russia to sign onto the START nuclear reduction treaty
    - She fought for equal pay and co-sponsored the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, eventually signed into law by the current Prez
    - Obviously as a 2008 Presidental Candidate, she ran the first serious campaign by a woman, transforming into an inspiring and pioneering political icon
    - She was the first Sec of State to convince China and Russia to agree to Iranian sanctions, resulting in the toughest sanctions ever on the regime
    - Under her order, the State Department became the first government agency to extend full spousal benefits to gays and lesbians (which predated the President's evolution on gay rights)
    - She negotiated the Israel-Palestine 2012 cease fire that prevented a second Gaza War

    These I didn't know about her Sec of State work until today:
    - She opened up relationships in Asia and South America, getting Korea, Columbia, Saudia Arabia, Brazil, and Israel to sign onto new trade agreements
    - She created the Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications recognizing that her predecessors at State had neglected cyberterrorism
    - She also created at State the Bureau of Energy Resources recognizing unlike her predecessors that America's dependence on foreign oil is a national security issue

    All of this will be become clear to voters, if it isn't already, if Hillary runs in 2016. But the burning question remainds: what has the Republican Party done to warrant election the White House? Who do they have that can top the achievements of a Hillary or a Biden or a Warren?

    Republicans don't have an answer because conservatives have no governing rationale. The Republican Party has accomplished nothing. What accomplishments do Republican candidates have? *crickets*

    So now we have a detailed list of Hillary's accomplishments, have the conservanuts managed to come up with a single reason yet why anybody should vote Republican in 2016?

    *crickets*

    No that is not one.. it was a program that was created that had no funding and it also included a pay gap, known as the donut hole. Once someone reached the amount they were forced to pay over $2000 from their own pocket before Medicare paid anything else. While some people have cheap scripts, others do not. And those that live on tight budgets got to a point where they had to choose, rent and food or required to live prescriptions. Medicare D is not considered an accomplishment. Specially in comparison to what the Affordable Care Act has done for seniors.

    I do hope you aren't categorizing me as a "certain angry poster" who "demanded to know what Hillary's accomplishments have been."

    To save you and anyone else the trouble... Here's the OP that no lib was unable to answer:

    Without resorting to googling "Hillary Clinton accomplishments" (this means Metta8 won't be able to participate with his usual copy and paste jobs) can anyone off the top of their head name just 5 of them?


    There's nothing "angry" about that, and I see no "demand" there either.

    And, even as of now, NONE of the RJ libs have been able to provide 5 (or even 1) of Hillary's "accomplishments" at all. Quite frankly, I'm surprised the libs haven't even tried sneaking some in and/or googling some talking points to post.




    He wasn't talking about you and I refused to get baited by the guy who made the comment. It was apparent by his tone that he had no intention of a true debate. If he had he would have countered the argument with a Republican potential candidate.

    Hillary's accomplishments have been presented? Where's the list of Republican accomplishments?

    Why can't RealJock conservatives come up with a rationale to vote Republican in 2016?

    Teathuglicans are in a tizzy because she didn't pull a Caribou Barbie and go all rogue up in there. The Secretary of State isn't supposed to be a hey-look-at-me showboat. She's supposed to be a team player, which is why Hillary's "accomplishments" are in line with the President and his policies.

    One of Hillary's biggest accomplishments was keeping her head down and doing her job, rather than doing what the two previous Republican Secretaries of State did: create a hey-look-at-me treasonous conspiracy for phony war by lying directly to the Congress to get them to authorize war, to the American people to convince them not to oppose it until it was too late, and to our allies to get them to join in on the farce.

    Knowing as we do that Republicans are self-aggrandizing liars with no ideas to move the country forward, who, again, is the Republican people should vote for in 2016? And why? What are the accomplishments of the Republican Party and its potential candidates?

    Still no answers provided.

    If it were a serious question, you wouldn't have added the mocking phrase "For the Right Wingers".

    While he isn't my favorite President, here are a few of George W. Bush's accomplishments while president:

    Introduced requirements for states to conduct criminal background checks on prospective foster and adoptive parents.

    Turned around an economy that was in a recession he inherited from the previous president.

    Increased incentives to small businesses causing an expansion of new hiring.

    Killed the Clinton "ergonomic" OSHA rules, that would have effectively shut down every home operated business, before they were implemented.

    Exempted food products from unilateral trade sanctions and embargos.

    Provided $20 million to states for programs to help disabled people work from home.

    Created a fund to encourage the development of technologies that help disabled persons.

    Annual contribution limit on Education IRA's were increased from $500 to $2,000 per child.

    Complete tax exemption for prepaid college tuition savings plans.

    Creation of a $2.4 billion fund for state implementation of teacher accountability systems.

    Funding increase for the Troops to Teachers program, that recruits former military personnel to become teachers.

    Establishment of a $10 million grant program that promotes private conservation initiatives.

    Parts of the Forestry Management Act were changed to allow for necessary cleanup in National Forests to reduce fire danger.

    Created matching grants program for state programs that help private landowners protect endangered species.

    Disarmed Libya's biological, chemical and nuclear arsenal without a battle.

    Signed, with Russia, the Largest nuclear arms reduction up to that time.

    Paid United Nations back dues in return for a reduction of the United States share of the costs.

    By putting hundreds of thousands of government jobs up for bid, government efficiency was improved.

    Initiated the largest and most extensive reorganization of Federal bureaucracies in more than 50 years. Consolidated more than 20 overlapping agencies and their intelligence arms into one agency, the Dept. of Homeland Security.

    Conversion of Federal service contracts to a performance-based contract(wherever possible) imposing on the contractors measurable performance goals.

    Put more physicians in the neediest areas by strengthening the National Health Service Corps and made it's scholarships tax-free.

    Doubled the research budget of the National Institutes of health.

    Increased funding to low-interest loan programs for the purchase of devices to assist disabled persons.

    Revision of HUD section * rent subsidies to disabled persons allowing them to use up to one year's worth of vouchers to finance down payments on buying a home.

    Funded the purchase of medicine for millions of men women and children with HIV/AIDS in Africa.



    Not exactly my favorite list of accomplishments, but I opted to mention mostly those accomplishments in line with Big Government.

    He sent them AZT.

    Not an accomplishment.

    He was unloading pills for GlaxoSmithKline that Americans would no longer take at the cost of the American taxpayer.

    Angry may be the wrong word. It was nasty though.

    And if the right wingers' questions about Hillary's accomplishments were serious, they wouldn't need to ask them as they would have looked them up themselves.

    That's an impressive list of Bush accomplishments, though bankrupting the country through fake wars and trickle down economics was left out. Does the GOP plan to run W. in 2016?
