Here’s the script for the “Scott Ott Thought” video above.
SCOTT OTT: I’m Scott Ott, and here’s a thought.
I support Hillary Clinton’s latest White House run because we owe her. That’s right, we the People of the United States of America owe Hillary Clinton. Let me explain.
Think about what we’ve done to Hillary over the years.
First of all, Bill Clinton never would have met Monica Lewinsky if it were not for our votes that put him in the White House and thus in a position to be sexually tempted by an intern at the White House, and, therefore, to cause Hillary to throw lamps and obscenities at him. That’s on us.
And Hillary never would have lost those boxes of records from the Rose Law firm about her involvement in the savings and loan failure because of the Whitewater land scandal. Keep in mind: She lost those records in the White House where she would not have been if we had not put her there. Our bad. And she never would have botched the universal healthcare task force if she weren’t appointed to that position of leadership by the President of the United States we elected. And of course, she would never have secretly fired those employees in the White House travel office if she had not been there in the first place.
Remember, when you’re pointing your finger at Hillary, you’ve got three fingers pointing back at you.
It was our elected President Obama that nominated her as Secretary of State and our elected Senate that confirmed that nomination.
Without us, she never would have presented the Russian foreign minister with a “reset” button that said “overcharged” in Russian. And so, it wouldn’t have seemed so ironic when Russia later charged over the border of Ukraine while the Obama administration watched helplessly.
So, now I think you can see how it’s our fault that the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was left so vulnerable on the night of September 11, 2012, when four Americans were slaughtered. And how can we escape responsibility for the fact that Hillary later blamed that attack on a satirical video that no one had ever seen?
Can you really, with a straight face, deny complicity in the fact that Hillary destroyed tens of thousands of emails that she kept in her own house on her own email server, erasing public records from her time as Secretary of State? Can you?
I know you’re probably thinking, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
But I, for one, think we’re deeply indebted to Hillary Clinton and as partial payback the least we can do is elect her president in 2016.
Hillary Clinton has endured all of these missteps, lies and scandals, and has virtually no accomplishments to show for her many years of public service. And all of that time, you were the public she was trying to serve. You, my friend! Own it.
It’s time for you to man up, and take responsibility for the damage you’ve done to Hillary Clinton and thus, by extension, to this great country.
I’m Scott Ott, and there’s a thought.
[Scott Ott then sings “Don’t Stop (thinking about tomorrow),” made famous by Bill Clinton when he chose the Fleetwood Mac song for the theme of his 1992 campaign. You’ve never heard it sung like this, accompanied by a list of reasons why we owe Hillary Clinton the presidency.]
