Our Next President, Folks...

Boy, I must really be out of it. I don't remember hearing a peep about this story when all the major networks broke it.

State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton: IG report
The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.

The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.
Six BILLION dollars misplaced, folks. BILLION. With a "B." Just imagine if the Bush administration has "misplaced" six billion dollars. Think it would have slipped under the radar like this news has? This is the only reason I supported Mitt Romney, folks. Had Mitt Romney's State Department "lost" six BILLION dollars you'd better believe the media would have run with that story.

Instead, there's nothing but crickets. I did, however, like a commenter's timeline:
Not to worry, She will just pull out the old Democrat Play Book for scandals...

Week 1 - Refuse to answer any questions. Immediately queue up the lap dog media to run interference.

Week 2 - Refuse to answer any questions, change the subject. Turn the gain up on the lap dog media.

Week 3 - Announce that everything has been answered, its time to "move forward", and state that no further questions on the subject will be answered.

Week 4 - Call it a "phony scandal" and highlight the fact that it never really happened in the first place. It was merely a miscommunication problem.

Week 5 - Accuse Republicans of trying to resurrect a phony scandal, and ask what difference at this point does it make anyway? Place a friendly call to the IRS for "assistance"

Week 6 - Accuse anyone asking the same questions that have never been answered about the phony scandal that doesn't matter any way, of being a racist. Pick up the phone to the NSA for closing arguments.
Not to be outdone, another commenter posted, simply:
Week 7 - Blame Bush.
I'm certain when Hillary! takes over in 2017 she won't "misplace" any more money...

That is all.

That is because both parties "misplace" billions of funds (including the military who misplaced 1.1 billion for spare parts). Neither party will make a big thing out of this because it's not like either party is fiscally responsible and uses anything remotely like a responsible way of accounting for funds.
