If you happen to think that politics has NEVER been so partisan, think again. The troubles of the Donkey VS the Elephant began years ago…when George Washington, who was sick of all the partisan fighting said, “I’m leaving this town and you can TAKE this job and shove it.”
Okay, he was a lot more dignified about it. But the fighting started during his last years as President, and it has never stopped. The partisan bickering started: The Virginians VS the Northerners. (Or Federalists.) OR…South VS the North. The Jeffersonian VS the Federalists. Whatever—none of them got along.
In the North, Hamilton had already been working with the banks of England, and his push for a National Bank was seen by the South as a way to transfer power from the agrarian sectors of the South, to the commercial enterprises of the North. They (Lead by Jefferson) thought the National Bank was unconstitutional.
(Jefferson would be the Ron Paul of today.)
Abigail Adam’s keen observance— “I firmly believe that if I live ten years longer, I saw see a division of Northern and Southern states. “
And right when America was just getting her first steps: Along came the French Revolution. (1793) Washington declared the United States neutral. He didn’t want to take sides in the war between the French and the British, because the United States was heavily trading with BOTH countries. Add to that, we had signed a peace treaty with England in 1778.
But the people of the United States, loved the French and hated the British, for obvious reasons. America would not have been able to defeat the British without the French.
And so–the Partisan political divides began: French loving Americans sided with Thomas Jefferson, and basically started the democratic party, which they called Republican, to show you–that Democrats got the habit of saying everything backwards from Thomas Jefferson. (Hey, you tell me. They are STILL saying black is white.)
Now, France was not to let a good crisis go to waste, so getting together with Jefferson, the French Minister, Edmond Genet, started stirring up the masses to get Americans to defy their government and come to the cause of the French in liberty, equality, and fraternity. (Hope and Change to come) People protested and marched in every single city, and newspapers were filled with both sides–yelling obscenities like “You WAGGER FRENCH LOVER YOU!” And “YOU LOVE KING GEORGE AND EAT MY OYSTER”
And thus began partisan politics. Americans have not given it up since. In fact, we have perfected it, and made it a huge part of the American economic engine. (That’s another blog.)
But, back to 1793. Most of the people wanted to go back to war with Great Britain, and anyone who didn’t want to go back to war, was labeled: horrors of horrors: an aristocrat.
Now we can just call them “chicken- shits.”
Hard to believe that the Jeffersonian Republicans (democrats) wanted to go to war back then, but there you go. Like I said, confusion.
Republican editorials blasted Washington and Hamilton. They were both hated.
While Thomas Jefferson was Secretary of State, he was orchestrating the Republican opposition to the very government he officially served.
Imagine Harry Reid having secret meetings with the Koch Brothers.
So—-why was Jefferson rallying Americans to go after the British again? History reports he was afraid the government would become bigger than the states.
(Eventually, that DID happen.)
BUT..John Adams thought he knew the real reason:
In John’s opinion Jefferson’s true motives were blatantly self-serving. Like so many of the Virginia planters he was heavily in debt to British creditors, and therefore predisposed toward an anti-British foreign policy that would delay repayment into the indefinite future.
And so he spread the rumor that the treaty with Britain, which John Jay arranged, was the big problem. John Jay’s Treaty with Britain removed the British troops from the West, and stopped the British Frigates from raiding American ships in the Caribbean. That was a GOOD thing. The British paid us back for whatever we lost from their Navy raiding our ships, and we agreed that American debtors— chiefly Virginia planters— pay off their prewar debt to British creditors.
How did the American people feel about that Treaty? They burned John Jay effigies in every town.
(Now, you can’t even wear a NRA cap to the voting booth.)
And Jefferson had help. James Madison, was working with Jefferson (who was in hiding in Monticello pretending he was out of politics) and they sabotaged the treaty by denying the funds for its implantation it in the House.
(Something the House NEVER does now…Can you say, Obamacare?)
John believed he was watching the triumph of party politics in its most partisan form…and he said this:
The republican opposition was highly orchestrated, “all moving as one Man, not a dissenting Voice among them, appearing as if drawn by one Cord.”
And that’s what has made the democratic party so successful: That cord has never been broken.
So, how is Congress doing in 2014? They are as far apart as they were in the beginning. Nothing is new here under the sun, and nothing ever changes, except the corruption in both parties borders BEYOND the obscene.
(From FRIST FAMILY and YES–I’m still reading it. )
It’s one thing for the liberals to get into our eating habits, now they are using sports as another means to promote their agenda: which is usually don’t offend anybody: gays, or Indians.
But, Kirk Herbstreit put some common sense back into play:
The ESPN announcer responded by strongly disagreeing with Costas’ decision to inject politics into his sports duties:
Well I work on two shows, College GameDay in the morning, studio show like you guys do. I’ll talk about that topic…I’m going to break down the game, analyze the game, the subject matters involving that night and that broadcast. I just don’t think that’s the platform to do that. I agree with Al.
As NewsBusters has documented, Costas has a long history of pushing his liberal agenda while covering sports for NBC. In December of 2012, Costas blamed an NFL player’s murder-suicide on guns by proclaiming “If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.” During the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Costas proclaimed that Vladimir Putin was a better statesman that President Obama.
Costas has also weighed in on the debate over the Washington Redskins name, insisting in October 2013 that “Redskins can’t possibly honor a heritage…It’s an insult, a slur.” While Costas has eagerly talked politics while covering sports, millions of Americans would likely agree with ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit that politics and sports shouldn’t mix.
So, congratulations Kirk Herbstreit, you win the Nobody’s Fool award for the week, for expressing what most everyone feels who is a sports fan:
Please…just call the game guys.
In case no one has noticed, I really don’t care what Daniel Hannan says, it’s always a joy.
And I post him just because….he always makes so much sense.
I was browsing the internet when I saw this video.
Watch this young black republican school this typical democrat who—– when he can’t win the argument, leaves.
She does a good job at destroying his message.
To make something funny, sometimes there has to be a bit of truth in it, and last night at the White House Correspondent Dinner, comedian Joel McHale pretty much summed up the all the people who attended with one perfect word: Ghouls.
His description was perfect: From Obama on down, the room was filled with rich, snobby looking ghouls. The once supportive and sycophantic members of the first “BLACK” President, were not so thrilled anymore with their black star. They looked pale. Tired. Bored. The black man who makes everything he talks about, pertain to the color of skin, you could tell, was starting to get to them..
There is only so often that you can talk about how much white people are racist, before it just starts getting old.
The theme was America is now and always WILL be…a racist country, and so special new awards were giving to black students to honor the first black White House reporter. Sorry, I didn’t catch his name…although Obama did mention that he now has a high school named after himself in Chicago.
Obama took over the dinner from the beginning. The first half was all about the White House Press corps, as if, no other media outlet counted. CNN,FOX, MSNBC…merely sidekicks to the very special reporters that have to sit in front of Jay Carney every day.
The video was a Obama and Bill Clinton love fest, and one got the feeling that it was made for the people out in America watching the dinner, because everybody who has been following the news knows that Obama has shut just about every reporter and photographer, out of the White House. The White House Press corps doesn’t even exist anymore. Obama gets to choose the question AND the reporter he will talk to that day. It’s staged. It’s all staged.
Then we had the “scholarships” awards given to blacks, women, foreigners–just about everybody but a white guy. We heard Steve Thomas, the White House Press Core President, give us all another “American has been so racist” lecture about blacks and women….that when on for another 20 minutes, and even I was wondering how any man could be so cheery talking about the horrible people in America.
Steve really was cheery.
And as they called out the names of the winners, Michelle saved her biggest hugs for the black kids, and what did they get? A measly $2500 reward. The kids were carefully picked for the color of their skin, their citizenship to foreign countries. and their devotion, no doubt, to global warming, if they would have let any of them talk.
(Wow. Mom..DAD! Look, I got $3,000 scholarship from Obama!)
For all the gripping Obama does about the ‘RICH” the irony of it is, they live richer than everybody, and yet, not one ghoul in that audience besides FOX news think there is any contradiction there, because they are all rich.So when Joe Biden did a video where he’s driving a fancy convertible, looking like he’s only 20 and acting “cool.” and you have to wonder…THIS is humor? (see video below) Are they TRYING to rub it in our faces that they are rich?
Yes— the man who is one step away from the President, can wear sunglasses, and act like a pick-up artist. That should make us feel…safe?
Obama jokes were mostly cutting–putting down just about everyone he wanted to, with a smirk, and a “you can’t touch me” attitude. CNN, the Koch brothers, FOX, Bundy…he sure can talk.
It was lame.
And classless. Which left Joel McHale with nowhere else to go BUT stupid gay jokes, and more classless jokes, and some truths…like the one where he said he was pretty sure Obama would be graded right up there with the first…50 Presidents.
So how did the ghouls like it? You could tell by the applause…weak. VERY weak. They are already tired of this black man who rules them now with a black iron fist.
They are now being told that only the White House propaganda machine is important, and the ghouls…can’t say it out loud, but you could see it on their faces. They have been shut out, from the Messiah, and this hope and change was not exactly what even THEY anticipated.
So, I’m sorry to-day that The White House Correspondence dinner was changed tonight…to another propaganda agenda PR event for the left…and the stars they will pick for tomorrow to report and obey, the President.
There is no class left in this President. Like he said, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.
Will the ghouls of the Press Corps wake up from their zombie sleep? The only one who looked awake was Arianna Huffington.
Or will they march on, collecting their big salaries and repeating what the White House wants?
Gee…we didn’t need a White House Dinner to know the answer to that now, did we? Hopefully next year, Joe Biden will wrestle a bear, or else the zombies in America will start eating out instead staying home and watching the White House Correspondent dinner on Cable.
I’d rather eat a bug.
You have to hand it to politicians: They want the family business to stay in the family. And they have all the connections and ‘bribes” and “favors” to get their kids and grandkids into office.
So what can a democrat, with a Ex-President grandfather who was very unpopular with conservatives, do to get the white vote in Georgia?
He’s going to stop banning the confederate flag. How magnanimous of him.
Think that will work? Will anybody dare ask the kid about Obamacare?
As for Chelsea Clinton, she’ll be running for office sooner than you think. And I don’t know about you, but I’m already sick of hearing about Chelsea’s baby. There is something so very un-American about treating the birth of a elite’s baby like the second coming of Christ.
I guess the Clinton’s just couldn’t stand the competition from Prince William, one second longer. One thing we do know, a Clinton baby is going to have a hard time competing with William’s and Kate’s child.
He’s a REAL fire quacker.
I thought this was one of the most passionate and greatest speeches given at CPAC. Pat Caddell laid out the truth of the times, with great emotion and patriotism. I was cheering in my seat. He captured how most Americans, who are fed up with both parties, really feel, and he did it boldly and without holding back.
Thank goodness some nobody video taped it…
Congratulations Pat Caddell! You win the Nobody’s Fool award for the week!
Nobody Knows where the heck that darn plane with 277 people is. But what we do now know, is that millions of passports are stolen every year, and MILLIONS of people are boarding on planes in countries all over the world, and not everyone is checking their underwear.
Nobody Knows why the GOP is seething with hatred of Snowden, from Krauthammer, to Karl Rove, to the whole FOX TV network…but at the GOP convention, the NSA unconstitutional surveillance of everything in our lives was the TOP concern. Is it any wonder the old GOP has lost the youth vote to Obama?
Nobody Knows why Marco Rubio is the only one warning about the plans for the U.N to take over the internet and control it….and TAX it. How many more years of free internet do we have? Nobody Knows.
Nobody Knows why there will be only 3 companies controlling the banana industry. Apple and Samsung are going to merge to control 1/3 of the market, and merging one big company with another has been going on since Bill Clinton. Google controls 67 percent of the market. Our politicians LOVE monopolies. Oligarchs are controlling America…and yet, not one peep from anyone in Congress. We ARE Russia— maybe we should just merge.
Nobody Knows why Paris is the number one tourist destination. Whatever happened to Disneyworld? I don’t know too many Americans going to Paris, do you?
Nobody Knows that last night I was listening to Coast to Coast when an earthquake hit northern California, Mexico, and West Virginia. And Nobody Knows why everyone ignored it today.
Nobody Knows why McConnell today said he was going to “crush the tea party.” in Virginia. Does he realized he just sealed his fate?
Nobody Knows why John McCain wants to run again for the Senate again, but comrades…come on: Guess. If John McCain his Senate reelection, I’m filing for John McCain reparations, I have SUFFERED watching that man.
Nobody Knows that it’s not the forever evil man who is killing off lions…it’s other lions. They kill each other all the time, the babies…other males, even other females. And yet…in the words of Dave Barry…
The United Nations does nothing, and just about everybody knows why.
The world is slowly getting back to def-con something, and while you would think that Obama would be taking the dangers around the world seriously…you’d be wrong.
I would never have known that Obama threw another big soul-sister party at the White House for himself last week, if somebody hadn’t of noticed that he couldn’t spell the word Respect at the party.
Obama had it down as rs-pect. In fact that’s all he does, peck and peck and peck, like a chicken.
He put that pecking talent of his in his 57 states. Maybe it was the smack from too many Diva’s trying to get some tax breaks at the party that made him flub up. And no doubt, several of the diva’s have relatives that need pardons. Maybe he had been smoking to much of that medicinal Columbia Gold.
(Obama has the French state dinner out in the tent, but he parties with his FRIENDS, inside. Notice? )
While the whole world watched as Putin made Obama and Kerry look like pimples on the butt of a Siberian Tiger last week—Obama was not interested.
Putin has taken over the Ukraine by force, so the Ukraine President is coming to the White House.
(Notice how leaders of countries love to leave when the going gets tough?) When the going gets bad, the bad ALWAY leave town (Benghazi) and the buck stops—somewhere in the vicinity usually of the nearest conservative threat.
Too bad President Yatsenyuk missed the soul-sister party, but you can’t have it all.
“This is our land,” Yatsenyuk told a crowd gathered at the Kiev statue to Shevchenko. “Our fathers and grandfathers have spilled their blood for this land. And we won’t budge a single centimeter from Ukrainian land. Let Russia and its president know this.”
But excuse me, I have a plane to catch.
And speaking of money, the Secretary of Defense was in front of Congress today, telling them how he plans to cut the military: Housing subsidies for the men, cut: Food subsidies: cut…but don’t worry, the officers will still get raises. Hagel assured the Congress that we would have the finest military in the world…it’s, just not going to be very big.
Yes, I saw that on CPAN….
Turn the channel:(click) Netanyahu is telling the world, HEY! Guess what! Iran is developing nuclear weapons, and America, this scuds for you!
Turn the channel:(click) There’s Dick Cheney, who says,
“America has no credibility with European allies following the Syrian crisis last year and will have trouble getting them to agree to sanctions against Russia as a result,”
Turn the channel:(dlick) Andrea Mitchell asks John McCain about military options;
“I’d love to tell you that there is Andrea, but frankly I do not see it. I wish that there were. … I do not see a military option and it’s tragic.”
Turn the channel: (click) Jim Baker says:
The risks are “very substantial,” Baker said, of the situation turning into more than a “small new Cold War, which I think we are pretty much in right now. I look at this as a Cold War lite.”
This is not 1968, and Russia is not the Soviet Union. The Russians need foreign investment; oligarchs like traveling to Paris and London, and there are plenty of ill-gotten gains stored in bank accounts abroad; the syndicate that runs Russia cannot tolerate lower oil prices; neither can the Kremlin’s budget, which sustains subsidies toward constituencies that support Putin. Soon, North America’s bounty of oil and gas will swamp Moscow’s capacity. Authorizing the Keystone XL pipeline and championing natural gas exports would signal that we intend to do precisely that. And Europe should finally diversify its energy supply and develop pipelines that do not run through Russia.
(Right…that’s happening real soon Condi.)
Turn the channel back to CSPAN: (click) Senator Cummings had to get on and give his hour long rant about what how MEAN that Darrell Issa was for not letting him talk on camera.
And speaking of Darrel Issa, (click) even FOX news was demanding his apology, which tells you what?
Turn the channel: (Click): On the other side of the world, a possible terrorist attack. A downed 777 (now 666) was probably blown up by (1) North Korea who likes to lob missiles into the air (2,) Real terrorist who boarded the plane and set off a bomb or (3). Somebody who wanted to get the news off Putin making Obama look like a fool all over the world.
As I walked around the block tonight in the dark, enjoying the beautiful stars and moon, and trying to adjust to the daylight savings time, (certifiable proof that all politicians enjoy the art of torture and control) I was thinking that somewhere in the south part of Florida, Obama, and no doubt a few heavy dozen of his best friends, are partying hardy, with 57 other agents, putting the locals out of their homes, streets and roads for the weekend.
And no doubt Tiger Woods will drop by for another Obama golf lesson,, and maybe bring some of those prostitutes he loves so much. Have you noticed that this whole vacation is a complete blackout?
Okay, Joyanna…turn off that TV!
So, I opened up my email: Great.
Gadhafi had hoarded Africa’s biggest known reserve of MANPADS, with his stock said to number between 15,000 and 20,000. Many of the missiles were stolen by militias fighting in Libya, including those backed by the U.S. their anti-Gadhafi efforts.
Last week, there were unverified claims some MANPADS went missing in Ukraine.
The MANPADS didn’t just move around. Thousands were looted when Gadhafi’s reserves were unprotected following the NATO campaign there in 2011.
What did I learn today? The Republicans are gearing up for war…and it was war weariness that help give us Obama. America is tired of dying in foreign countries where our boys come home maimed, and it’s all for nothing.
They all wanted us to go into Syria. Sorry Dick Cheney, Sorry Jim Baker, Sorry, the American people rose up and in one voice said —Hell no, we won’t go. And we don’t want to save the Ukraine. We have our own dictator right here at home to deal with.
The truth is that neither party has kept us safe. 9.11 happened on Bush’s watch. It should never have happened, and if we are attacked again, it’s a pox on both houses.
You know what? I listened to the news all day long…I’m clicking and clicking…
Right now, you could fly me to the moon.
Nobody Knows if Obama and John Boehner solved how to pass amnesty this morning at the White House, but what Alex Sink, a democrat running to represent Florida, showed in her almost blatantly funny statement, is that most democrats are just worried about WHO is going to landscape their mansions. It’s a concern.
“We need to bring these people out of the shadows so that they’re paying into social security, paying into Medicare, they’re paying federal income taxes,” she said. “So they’re not security issues, but they have to earn their way, but we need immigration reform.”
Nobody Knows, but nobody can guess that if the immigrants stopped coming, Americans would be doing those jobs…and wages would, just by free market demand, have to go up. And that’s what the big companies don’t want now do they?
Nobody Knows, but– we are finding out, Obamacare demands that all calories of food must now be listed by restaurants. So, is Obama going to excuse all the pizza delivery places from spending the money and listing the calories on their pizza boxes until AFTER the 2014 elections to save his butt? No doubt, he will. And nobody knows if listing calories is going to keep anybody from getting extra cheese.
Nobody Knows that the Supreme Court has ruled that the police can gather DNA from anyone whenever they want. And nobody is pretty certain they already have most everyone’s. Anyone born in America has their blood taken right after birth, illegal or not.
Nobody Knows why Chuck Hagel, our Secretary of Defense, is taking our military back to pre-WWII levels when he says we are in more danger now than we have ever been.
Oh, that makes sense.
Hagel stressed that such changes entail risk. He said—
“We are entering an era where American dominance on the seas, in the skies and in space can no longer be taken for granted.”
So therefore, we can’t win, so we should just retreat. Nobody Knows why the democrats hate the military, but they do. Bill Clinton did such a fine job of downsizing our military it took George W. Bush almost 9 months to build it back up enough to attack Iraq. Going to the U.N. was just a stall. (That’s my opinion)
Nobody Knows where Hagel is going to ‘store’ all our unused military hardware, sell it to China?
Nobody Knows that I actually heard reported today on the radio that “hate groups’ have gone down in the last year. ‘Hate groups” being those white conservative radicals who were all in a hussy about Obama trying to take their guns away. Right. You cannot not hate anyone who tries to deprive you of your rights.
Nobody Knows when anyone who hates anything, will be arrested. (First they came for the Jews…and I said nothing….)
Nobody Knows how Eric Holder can tell the state attorney generals to just ignore the laws in their state and go ahead and sanction gay marriage and rights, and then have the audacity to say our founders had gays in mind when they wrote our founding documents.
Nobody Knows how John McCain got to be a Senator from Arizona. Somebody enlightened me.
Nobody Knows why some people are night people and some people are day people, a subject that I can’t seem to find an answer to. SCN?
And Nobody Knows why the heck we are talking about “gay rights” all day long and into the sunset when America has MUCH bigger problems…like a Marxist President who is completely gone off the rails and plans to destroy the country beyond all recognition. Tell me, what’s more important than that?
Nobody knows how Congress became so corrupted that nobody will impeach him.
And Nobody knows that unlike Jane Fonda, I noticed butterflies, polar bears, kittens, pregnant women, baby elephants and all the beauty all around this planet when I was about…four.
Nobody Knows where Obama is going to get the money for his latest “Hey, I’ll buy your vote, because I can!” idea. He wants to give every child that is born in America, $500 to put in a government savings account. Hispanic women have the lead in that area: 4 to 1. Nobody Knows just how much that will cost if Obama decides to give amnesty all by his lonesome pen, but he figures since he is losing his base, he has to give the Hispanics a free-be. Add that to the $17 trillion.
Nobody Knows, that since 2009, we have been giving millions of dollars to Mexican prostitutes, (men) to study AIDS…it is suppose to end this year. Nobody Knows just why our taxpayers should be paying so much to gay prostitutes in Mexico, but we can only guess that Obama thinks it’s very important. This is about keeping the Mexican prostitutes from disease….remember that on tax day, and also remember that Obama really FEELS the male prostitutes pain..in Mexico.
If I was a male prostitute here, I’d write my Congressman. Remember, it was in Mexico that the FBI got caught hanging out with…prostitutes…when Obama was there.
Nobody Knows that Bill Clinton once pardoned an ex Congressmen from jail, but he’s back in it again tonight: Former Illinois Democratic Rep. Mel Reynolds was arrested Monday in Zimbabwe for making pornographic films in hotels where he had accumulated $24,500 in unpaid bills, and had overstayed his visa by two months. Mel is good friends with Jesse Jackson, and so Nobody Knows why Obama has not pardoned Jesse’s son, yet. Where’s Bill when you need him?
Nobody Knows why Obama has decided to start demanding EPA get onto fixing the omissions on trucks, but if you think your bacon is high now…just wait…
Nobody Knows why Obama is always absent, when freedom calls. The good people in Kiev are giving up their very lives because they don’t want to be ruled by Russia..ever again. And in shame, Obama and the EU don’t even want to take sides. It’s too shameful to even witness. Reagan would have made a strong statement, but then again, Reagan fought for freedom. Obama’s idea of freedom is how much freedom he has to rule everyone’s lives.
Nobody Knows, that my most favorite quote yesterday was from a man who was Johnny Carson’s top joke writer. He had this to say about Jay Leno, and the other comics on late night TV:
His competitors haven’t exactly hammered President Barack Obama, hardly a smidgen. The paucity of Obama jokes is the dog that didn’t bark. Like their news anchor counterparts, our hosts go gentle into that late night, despite the target-rich environment of this administration. With his pen and phone, our selfie-absorbed president is one whacked uncle away from appointing himself Supreme Leader.
Somebody—PLEASE—- whack that uncle.
The 2016 Presidential election is already on it’s way: Hillary is the frontrunner, and she has already stated that she is going to run on women and children issues: What else has she got to run on? Her fabulous record?
And so…the logical thing to do is start hitting Hillary on her issue, which is, WHY did she let Bill Clinton, whose serial rapes and serial sexual encounters went on for so long—-why did she put up with him, if she truly cares about women? What kind of feminist is she? And why aren’t feminists angry at her?
Rand Paul has started the attack:
“Obviously, having sex with an intern in the office is inappropriate by any standard,” Paul said. “And where are the women who believe in women’s right, the women who allege some kind of war is going on by the other party, where are they to stand up and say, ‘You know what? Maybe Bill Clinton isn’t the best representative of our party since he really depicts what’s really gross and wrong with workplace harassment?’”
“Would you call him an unsavory character?” Malzberg asked.
“Yeah,” Paul replied. “I mean a predator, a sexual predator, basically.”
Katheen Willey this week, reminded every one of Hillary’s and Bill’s vast devastation of women:
Hillary Clinton is the war on women, and that’s what needs to be exposed here,” Willey said Sunday night on Aaron Klein’s WABC Radio show.
“The point is what this woman is capable of doing to other women while she’s running a campaign basically on women’s issues. It just doesn’t make any sense. She singlehandedly orchestrated every one of the investigations of all these women [who accused her husband of sexual crimes]. They’re the people reminding us of how sordid this all is.”
And then, Mitt Romney joined in:
Former President Bill Clinton “breached his responsibility” and embarrassed the United States while having an affair with intern Monica Lewinsky while in office, former candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday, but he doesn’t think his issues are relevant to a potential campaign for Hillary Clinton.
“She has her own record and her own vision,” Romney told NBC’ “Meet the Press” host David Gregory Sunday.
The question here is, when it comes to imperfections, how does Hillary compare to Bill?
On the bad side, Bill Clinton was a criminal sexual predator, but as a politician, very few can or will ever match his expertise. He is much sharper on his feet than Hillary, and it was Bill that came to the aid of Obama and pushed him into the Presidency, with his great oratorical skills at the democratic conventions. Obama may be good at teleprompters, but he is no match for Bill Clinton when it comes to talking about any subject off his head. (see video) Bill Clinton as President did more damage than good…and he would have done more if not for Congress.
Hillary on the other hand—her best talent was in protecting their power–protecting Bill’s mistakes. Her presidency will be a continuation of Obama’s and probably more like Hugo Chavez or Cuba. She is more the socialist/communist than Bill, who is smart enough to understand capitalism. And she is a lousy speaker. That’s her biggest problem. She cannot hold anyone’s attention for too long. All the Republicans need to do is get a great speaker to articulate her faults to beat her.
I think Bill Clinton knows this, but does Hillary?
So, whose wins the Nobody’s Perfect award for the week?
Kathleen Willey, (a woman who was sexually attacked by Bill Clinton) summed up my feeling about it best:
“They take up all the oxygen in the room, and everybody is depressed. We’re gonna go back to all the sordid details [if Hillary runs for president]. They need to just go away because they’re forcing themselves on us is the way I feel. Just pack your bags. You’ve had your 15 minutes. … Stop forcing us to have to look at this stuff again. We’re sick of it!”
Well said Kathleen…think I’ll read your book.
Every night, while I’m trying to figure out the next day’s blog, I have Mark Levin on the radio. I remember when he used to call up Sean Hannity and give his two cents…long before he had his own show and now is one of the top conservative voices in America.
In his book, Liberty and Tyranny, he attacks those whom Glenn Beck calls ‘progressives’. Mark calls them Statists. The rest of us just call them crooks. It’s a quick read, and although, if you read a lot, you won’t find anything surprising, but good, solid, common sense conservative ideas repeated again, in a very legal sense.
What IS worth noting is his conservative Manifesto at the back. Here’s a few of his ideas:
Eliminate the progressive income tax, replace it with a flat tax or national sales tax.
Eliminate the automatic withholding of taxes. Eliminate the corporate tax. Eliminate the death tax.
Limit federal spending each year to less than 29 percent of the gross domestic product.
Eliminate lifetime tenure for federal judges.
Eliminate monopoly control of government education.
Eliminate the federal Department of Education.
End multiculturalism, diversity and bilingualism in public institutions.
These are just a few…that all conservatives would LOVE to see happen: Trouble is, the last time the Republicans held all three branches, they kept on the ‘progressive’ and statist path, and in 2016, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Marko Rubio, and Paul Ryan, would all do the same, no matter what they say. I REMEMBER George W. Bush’s campaigning. He sounded just like Mark Levine. It’s all about the global corporations and the money in Washington. Unless we get non-progressive/statists in office, things will remain the same.
Rand Paul is trying to reform the Republican party from within. But…realistically, that’s not going to happen any time soon….and Rand Paul, says that a third party doesn’t have a chance.
He should know, he is the son of Ron Paul, who tried.
Still…It’s good for us to have these voices giving us hope everyday…but in the meantime..while Mark Levine’s can tell us HOW things should be, none of us see that happening short of revolution. Which is why this Nobody Thinks Obama is stocking up on bullets and training men in his $63 million dollar fake American city built in Virginia.
The NSA is telling them just how mad the people really are.
Anyway, Mark is a great American…the book is worth the read. Besides, let’s not forget that he was part of Reagan’s cabinet, and he quotes one of Reagan’s most famous lines at the end of his book:
“Freedom is never more than on generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Obamacare has now, truly enslaved us, and I agree with Mark:
“We Conservatives need to get busy.”
