So on another topic – I’ve been doing a blogaround visiting some of the blogs I used to frequent in 2008. A lot of them have closed the shutters, but a lot of them are still in business. I don’t know if I’m surprised or disappointed that many of them are acting like the last six years have never happened. Like they have Hillary’s reset button. No questions about her tenure at the State Department. No questions about the Clinton Foundation. She’s ” their girl” and anyone who questions her qualifications is sexist. Jeralyn’s commenters who support Hillary but still have some questions, and RD’s list of far left demands were actually refreshing. Part of me almost hopes someone slides in and takes the nomination away from her again because I don’t think the wake-up call in 2008 was loud enough. By all means support Hillary if she’s the best choice for you, but not until after you weigh the options.
Some people seem to think that 2016 is gonna be a Hillary Mulligan – a “do over” for both her and her supporters.
Even if Hillary wins it all this time, things will be different. She would be facing a GOP majority in at least one and possibly/probably both houses of Congress. She would be stuck with implementing Obamacare and managing a stagnant economy. Basically by ever single measure the world is worse off today than it was 6 years ago and she would represent Obama’s third term rather than a sea change from the Bush/Cheney years.
I don’t know about you but I’m not ready to make nice with the Democratic party over the things that went on in 2008. I lost my innocence and it ain’t coming back. Supporting Hillary now would validate what they did when it should be repudiated instead.
But this is just not about my butthurt feewings. I could put all that stuff aside if I believed that electing Hillary was the best thing for our country. But I do not believe that. It’s time for a new direction. The Blue Model has failed. We need to start dismantling the federal government and restoring power to the states and the people.
Not all power, but we need to find a proper balance as envisioned by our Founding Fathers. That includes restoring the checks and balances between the three branches of government. The Executive branch needs to be brought to heel.
Last but not least, Hillary has exposed herself as someone who is unfit to hold the reins of power. On a matter of importance she lied to the American people. She set herself above the law. She was incompetent in the performance of her duties.
If Hillary is defeated then her remaining supporters will be left dreaming wistfully of what might have been. But is she is elected it will be an extension of the current nightmare.
Just say “NO” to the Hillary Mulligan.
