I am watching the so-called candidacy of Hillary Clinton, and all I get is that sense of deja vu. Like I’ve been here before. And, the reason for it is – because we have.
Those of us who had questions about Hillary’s candidacy in 2008 were told to sit down, shut up, and how dare you question her candidacy.
Those of us who HAVE questions about Hillary’s candidacy in 2012, are being told to sit down, shut up, and HOW DARE YOU bring receipts from 2008.
” Barack Obama got past what really didn’t happen in 2008, so you should to.”
HOW many times have I read that in tweets?
Too many times.
As someone wrote on another blog:
The “PBO made her SOS” is becoming the new “All lives matter”
Instead of saying, yes, Hillary skeptics, we understand your criticism, but, see, here is where Hillary apologized for the behavior in 2008.
Ooops…but, they can’t say that, can they?
BECAUSE, as so many point out…
Hillary has NOT APOLOGIZED for the behavior in 2008.
And, telling folks that they should ‘get over it’, doesn’t really work well.
Neither does..’ well, Obama did it too’.
I call absolute, utter BULLSHYT on that one.
See, unlike some folks, I remember 2008 clearly.
And, I was the one in charge of the Clinton Attacks Obama with Racial Incidents Wiki in 2008.
And, folks here, followed that Wiki when I was writing for another blog.
But, now, I see the new tactic for Hillary apologists, especially the Black ones, is ” I’m not going back.”
Because, see, they couldn’t justify what she did in 2008, especially when we had the candidate Barack Obama.
These folks wanted to shin and grin for her in 2008, but Black folks were like, you Kneegrows better sit down and shut up.
But, since they don’t see another challenger for Hillary, they’re all about the ‘ I’m not going back. ‘
The GOP isn’t the only one given talking points.
Be sure to check out for other Hillary-stans and see if that meme is being spread around.
I’m willing to bet that it is.
The ONLY thing Hillary had in 2016 that she had in 2008 as the reason why SHE should be President is ELECTABILITY.
That is what she has over Bernie Sanders.
That is what she tried to sell in 2008.
And, like then, I never bought that argument.
I wasn’t even completely on Barack Obama’s side as a candidate in 2007, but the Hillary Clinton electability argument was pure horseshyt even in 2007. Follow the numbers. I did it then, and they made no sense to me. I do it now, and they still make no sense.
Her unfavorables were 50% in 2007.
So, I was like, why start out, with a candidate that HALF THE COUNTRY HAS SAID THEY WOULD NEVER VOTE FOR?
Why put yourself in that trick bag?
I never got an answer from Hillary stans back then.
Her unfavorables are above 50% RIGHT NOW.
BEFORE the GOP spends 1 BILLION DOLLARS.
But, they keep pushing this woman. They keep pushing this unelectable woman.
They keep on pushing this woman who doesn’t want to embrace the coalition that won in 2008 & 2012. Let’s be clear on that.
Hillary Clinton and those around her – resent the PHUCK that Barack Obama found a way to blow up all conventional wisdom.
Conventional wisdom was that you HAD to win at least 1 Southern State on your way to the Presidency.
Barack Obama showed – no you don’t. It’s NICE that he won the Southern States that he won, but if he hadn’t of won them, HE WOULD STILL PRESIDENT.
Barack Obama has shown the way.
But, folks act like fat meat ain’t greasy.
They don’t want to admit his brilliance. Because, they are still butt hurt that he laid waste to them in 2008.
So, they pretend that he didn’t show the path, and start that bullshyt like they did in 2015 – about ‘Clinton Democrats’. Because, heaven forbid, that this President has shown them ANYTHING.
It’s their arrogance. Every step of the way. They can’t admit that he beat them. They can’t admit that he showed a better way. They can’t admit the depth and breadth of his accomplishments, which is why she was deliberately criticizing this President, until the Obama Coalition made it clear:
IF YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING TO BADMOUTH PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA AND GET OUR VOTES, YOU ARE PHUCKING DELUSIONAL.
So, now, that those ‘ Whites…hard-working Whites’….are clear that they will vote against their own economic self-interest
EVERY SINGLE TIME…
Suddenly, she realizes that the Obama coalition is the path to the White House.
Our poster Liza always asks often:
What is THE POINT of Hillary Clinton running for President?
And, I reply:
Because she believes she is ENTITLED to be President.
It’s not for the betterment of the republic.
Nobody can honestly tell me that they TRUST her – domestic on foreign policy -wise.
You make $75k speaking in front of groups, and can’t tell us about the speeches?
But, I’m supposed to believe that she will defend the working man.
I wrote before that we have the right to bring receipts. Continue to insult us, and we will dig even further.
I told you, the email ‘ scandal’ wasn’t a scandal…it just revealed her lack of character.
The real…criminal cases are coming….indictments….and corruption…
Are all wrapped up in the Clinton Foundation.
But, nobody wants to talk about that, and we’re bad folks for reminding folks that the Clinton’s bring nothing but MESS.
I refuse to defend her mess.
She’s a bad candidate.
And, it’s pitiful watching the Democratic Party shoot themselves in the foot by attaching themselves to this albatross.
It would almost be funny, if the future of the republic weren’t at stake.
