I’m sick of them. I’m sick of all the lies. All the tricky stuff. Sure, like a lawyer on the clock they, their shills, or their general supporters can nit-pick what happened. How it was all good. How it was all legal. But good at playing with the law is not being good. Leveling with the populace is what’s good. Having the populace make their decisions with accurate information is good.
It began with the Big Dog and there are several examples but going over one is enough. Welfare Reform he called it. Kicking a bunch of people especially when they’re down is not what makes our country great. Reform it may be but not for the good. Compassion is. Empathy is. You can talk all you want about how you made it easier for some of the people but this thing, this life thing we are all in and we shouldn’t play at God and decide who is worth helping and who is not.
And then there is Hillary. Who has not met for a press conference in almost nine months. Our elected officials are representatives of the people and have to be answerable for their actions. One way is through the press. An undemocratic action is denying the press access. It is not our way. You have to do it, even if you do not like the press. And it is Hillary who is just running out the clock. Without providing adult like serious answers for her actions.
“She is not planning on sitting for another televised armchair confessional to rehash regrets about a private email server. Nor is the campaign setting up the kind of war room employed last year to discredit a book that aimed to expose a quid-pro-quo relationship between Clinton Foundation donors and State Department officials.”
“With 75 days until Election Day and new emails once again casting a pall over her campaign, Hillary Clinton aims to “run out the clock,” confidants say, on the latest chapters of the overlapping controversies that have dogged her campaign since the start.”
“According to allies and operatives close to the campaign, Clinton’s team thinks “they can ride out” any negative reaction to a set of new emails that show Clinton Foundation officials trying to set up State Department meetings for donors during her tenure as the nation’s top “diplomat. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/hillary-clinton-trump-email-strategy-227347#ixzz4IFi3a6bc
I’m sick of them. I’m sick of them and their shills. Their supporters ignore the obvious elements – it doesn’t matter what any other Secretary of State did – she was the only one exclusively to use her personal server for E-mails – I don’t know what harm it did and I don’t care if Colin Powell did much of the same (he denies it), she was wrong and should just admit it. No matter what she claims the FBI didn’t exonerate her cleanly – it was clear that she just barely escaped prosecution. All the elements of a crime were there but intent. Just admit it. She wasn’t truthful that all E-mails were released and certainly not to the public the first go around – fifteen thousand just made their way into the public eye – no thanks to her or her team – just admit it.
Admission of failure does not only mean incompetence. It also means you are capable of taking stock of your actions.
There were greater problems in the FDR days and sure, there were some failures. But he tried and his people tried and that is all you can ask. They did not bask in the glory they made for themselves.
Their shills fiercely guard them as if being right about some of their wrongs gives them a free pass about any of the wrongs.
“I’m fairly sure that when William Shakespeare penned the phrase “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing,” he did not have in mind the constant cycle of scandals that envelop Bill and Hillary Clinton. But the phrase easily applies.”
“When it comes to the Clintons, the most mundane actions can be raised to the specter of national outrage, because of the appearance, but not actual incident, of impropriety.” http://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2016/08/23/clinton-mail-scandals-are-pure-fiction/ryXZoEeqANOPSiL7O33QuJ/story.html
“As always with the Clintons, their enemies are once again engaging in overreach. And the press, including the august New York Times, is once again following those enemies down a rabbit hole where there is always a new revelation just around the corner that will finally allow someone to hold the couple accountable for something. And all the time spent chasing the shiny object of a smoking gun of an email obscures some of the genuinely substantive questions government watchdogs have raised about the intermingling of the Clinton Foundation’s business with Hillary Clinton’s governmental work and how the Clintons will need to disentangle themselves from such conflicts in the future.” http://www.salon.com/2016/08/24/playing-into-the-rights-trap-the-media-is-all-too-quick-to-go-chasing-phony-clinton-scandals/
While they act like they’re royalty they don’t get it because they are not. Just act common for after all we all are. And they have not learned grace.
The daughter corners sixty-five grand to speak for a few minutes and then do a question and answer. They should all be ashamed!
This is what we’ve become. If someone is attacked, sometimes venomously and often unjustly, whether their shills like it or not, it doesn’t create a free pass to lie to the American Public. It does not create a free pass to endeavor hiding their actions (or others). That’s why the Clintons remain under attack. Because they continue to respond in a way that makes you think they deserve it.
