It’s rather pathetic to watch Hillary repeatedly try to launch her 2016 candidacy. It’s like watching a drunk in a honky-tonk repeatedly launch himself at the restroom door, and each time hitting the wall, falling back; he has another drink for inspiration and courage, then hits the wall again, and when he finally gets through the door discovers that he has already wet himself, or just plain misses the toilet.
Poor, pampered, spoiled, mistreated Hillary. She reminds one of George Bush, pere, when he first saw a bar code scanner in a grocery store. The press rode him hard for being out of touch with average Americans for that gaff, but the liberal press will not criticize Hillary for her lack of shared experiences with America’s increasingly lower-class living standard. She just doesn’t get where the nation has gone in the last 20 years, and she looks and sounds foolish. Aging, overweight, out of shape, she still tries to bounce into a crowd or onto a stage (or jauntily descend a jet-way at an airport) but she just can’t pull it off with her waddle and carefully placed footsteps. Carly Fiorina accurately summed up Hillary’s state of mind when she said that Hillary thinks sitting on a 757 and burning tons of jet fuel is an accomplishment that proves what a good job she’s done as Secretary of State. The woman has accomplished nothing with all her travels.
And Mrs. Clinton appears rather dim-witted and slow when she repeatedly tells us that having her own email server was legal and that she never sent or received any classified information on the email system she used. Really? Then how did she perform her job of Secretary of State? She further told us that the platform she used was originally used by her husband when he was president and that the use of this 20-plus year old presidential system proved it was secure. She doesn’t even know that security and firewall standards have changed greatly since Clinton’s presidency and that this antiquated system would provide no security at all in 2015. And besides, President Clinton didn’t ever use email, so why pretend that the system Hillary is using was used by her husband?
The only people excited about Hillary’s candidacy are those who can profit from it or are nostalgic about the good old days when socialism seemed like a good idea for America. But Obama has blown that idea to pieces for those who pay attention and can think for themselves. Even old, sloppy, rumpled Bernie Sanders is more attractive to voters.
One would feel sorry for her if she ever said anything sensible, but her idiotic string of socialist propaganda makes us take pleasure in her discomfort. At least Obama is a true believer in big government and dictating behavior to the unwashed masses. Hillary does it because Bill did it and because that has become her genre, but she’s a failure at it because socialism is unworkable and she is unable to express it in a way that makes it appear attractive.
Her cackle of a laugh, the phony eyes-wide greeting of crowds, the stare-over-the-heads of audiences as she speaks, her planned and plotted “spontaneity”, her distant, reluctant hugs of people you can tell she doesn’t even want to touch, make it uncomfortable to watch her. In fact she has sunk so far in the polls that reflect her standing that Lanny Davis no longer shills for her, and James Carville only comes out of retirement to defend her on the rarest of occasions. But I’ll say one thing for Mrs. Clinton that one could not say a year ago: now that she has professional handlers to watch her, she at least washes her hair with some regularity.
