Clinton stance on emails takes an about face

Some people flip-flop, but Democrats evolve … rather quickly.

On Friday, Hillary Clinton twice refused to apologize for using a private email server to conduct public business while secretary of state.

The only thing she was sorry for is that people are too stupid to understand what she did was completely above board. 
“At the end of the day, I’m sorry this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions,” Clinton said. “But there are answers to all of these questions and I will continue to provide them, and they’ve been confirmed and affirmed by other State Department officials, and eventually I’ll get to testify in public, and I’m sure it will be a long and grueling time there, but all of the questions will be answered.”

On Tuesday, Clinton apologized.

“I do think I could have and should have done a better job answering questions earlier. I really didn’t perhaps appreciate the need to do that,” she said in an interview. “What I had done was allowed, it was above board. But in retrospect, as I look back at it now, even though it was allowed, I should have used two accounts. One for personal, one for work-related emails. That was a mistake. I’m sorry about that. I take responsibility.”

    As usual with the Clintons you have to parse every word and phrase, she’s covering her behind. She doesn’t explain whether the government approval was implied or tacit. It’s neither, she did as she pleased but only a moron would believe you can mix personal and top secret messages on the Internet. She failed, the government up to, and including, the White House failed to notice or ignored the fact.

    Was there encryption or were they as open on the Internet as what I’m writing right now? Did she include all recipients on the To line or on BCC, how many to the White House for Obama’s attention? Even the committees are pussy footing to keep him out of the so-called investigation. If Russia, China, or other nations wanted to help boot her they could provide the texts of her e-mails.

    We see in this email server controversy the type of leader Hillary will be, deny, deny, insist it is not wrong, insist again it is not wrong, then admit to it then apologize for doing it.

    transparency!

    A metaphor for the collapsing Hillary Clinton Campaign?
