Here's why I'm so often depressed:
"If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front-runner in the next presidential race."
Geezus... while it just kicks me in the gut to acknowledge the truth of the above statement, acknowledge it I must!
Folks... face it... neither integrity nor even competence rank high on the American Sheeple's list of qualifications for public office!
Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State was a total disaster!
Remember "Senator Clinton?" OK... without googling... name one thing she did while a Senator other than assume the title in advance of running for president?
First "First Lady Clinton?" It's a title a president's wife is given! All American presidential wives get the title!
Remember "Attorney Clinton?" Hmm... vaguely... wasn't she a noted constitutional scholar before she met Bill? (Just kidding! No... she wasn't...) Hmm... one of America's foremost legal scholars? (Nope... afraid not.) But she was successful right...? She made millions winning case after case against the finest adversary attorneys in the national and throughout the world... right? (Sadly... no... perhaps you're thinking of fellow-democrat scumbag John Edwards?)
Seriously, folks, although Nancy Pelosi too is a simply horrible person she at least is a true example of a woman who made it on her own! (Well... with a bit of financial help from her multi-millionaire husband...)
Folks... Hillary Rodham Clinton is an empty suit! No one would have ever heard of her had she not married Bill Clinton! Any and all successes of her adult life were directly tied to whose wife she was! (First the state Attorney General's wife... then the state Governor's wife... ultimately the President of the United State's wife.)
For God's sake, if Americans truly desire a return to Monarchy, can't they at least focus upon a competent contender for the Crown?
If you read the article that prompted this newsbite post opening you'll see that it's actually focused not upon politics, but upon Mrs. Clinton's health. Is she sick? Will she "come out" and share her medical problems with us during 2014 and 2015, only to make a miraculous full and total recovery just in time to run in 2016 and win as "the miracle candidate" partly on the sympathy vote? (I'd put nothing past this woman.)
Hell... perhaps Michelle will run! This nation's political system is so broken it could happen! Another Bush perhaps? (Over my dead body!) Another Gore run?
Ladies... Gentlemen... all I know is that I'm living in a nation which just two years ago re-elected a proven failure to a second term. (Though it didn't hurt Obama that the RINOs ran Romney!)
Is there a "new Reagan" on the horizon who can win the GOP nomination and then the presidency in 2016? Let us pray so!
