Clinton documents: much has changed, but much still the same

,

(CNN) - More than 3,500 pages of previously secret Clinton White documents made public Friday showed that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Highlights from the Clinton documents

Some of the confidential memos, notes and other papers released by the National Archives referred to technological advances of the times, such as the 1995 memo that suggested then first lady Hillary Clinton use the Internet to speak to young women because it "has become very popular."

Others detailed political battles over health care reform that sounded like today's headlines.

    Even the Clintstones are running away from Obumbles. Not a Hilly fan, however I would prefer her handling Russia than the weak one Oblunder.

    They released things that they know would not hurt Hillary. Why don't they release all....the good, the bad and the ugly so we can all see what she is all about.

    Smissy – " Even the Clintstones are running away from Obumbles. Not a Hilly fan, however I would prefer her handling Russia than the weak one Oblunder. "

    She couldn't even handle her husband, what makes you think she could deal with Putin?

    democrats have forced a defensive ring around hillary clinton and obama. with the help of the left wing controlled media in this country, the american people will enter election after election with information being withheld, hidden and the truth replaced with lies, just like in 2012. fox news is the only reliable news agency that isn't in the bag for the democrats. the ap, cbs, abc, nbc, msnbc, cnn, hollywood, new york times, la times, etc. are all left wing democrat propaganda agencies.

    just asking – " fox news is the only reliable news agency "

    Thanks for the laugh. That was a good one.

    I've always wondered what righties do for a search engine. Is there a search engine for righties that only gives you right-wing propaganda, or do righties just never verify anything?

    Maybe there's a business opportunity there: WikiRightie!!

    If nothing else, no matter what you think of the Clintons, it was under the Clintons that we began to see the Republicans go insane. The GOP lie machine cranked up; they bow $millions on fake investigations and even tried to impeach Clinton- for exactly the same thing Mr. Gingrich was doing- having an affair- and lying about it.

    The long-lasting effects of this shift in the Right shows up today- they are completely addicted to their own delusions, and their mindless obstruction and hatred of government.

    It's time to start calling the Democrat party by their real name, the Communist party. The Clintons have both been communists for a long, long time. Don't you people read? The final objective of the Communists is to destoy one of the two political parties. What do you think the comments on these sites push for? Stand by your comrade.

    "I've always wondered what righties do for a search engine. Is there a search engine for righties that only gives you right-wing propaganda, or do righties just never verify anything?"

    I've also wondered where Independents and Libertarians go for their right-wing propaganda. They pick and choose what they think will support their own right leaning candidates propaganda without understanding how right-wing they sound trying to be something they are not.
