Although the media would not have you know it the Democrats are in as much disarray as the Republicans. They started with fewer candidates in their primary but no one ever doubted for a minute that Hillary was inevitable. A few debates and a little polite bickering, just to show that were some choices.
Along came Bernie Sanders and did more that put up a fight. From time to time. He had Hillary on the ropes in the first debate and decided not to throw a punch. He stated that he was “tired” of hearing about her e-mails. Oops, file that under chances lost.
The fact that a septuagenarian Socialist is still in the fight is amazing. He’s older than I am by 2 years and I not only am too old to cut the mustard, half the time I can’t even find it.
Owing perhaps to both a lack of interest in the Hillary candidate and a large interest in the old Socialist “outsider” who promises the moon to his supporters with the bill going to others. What’s not to like?
What’s with that “outsider” nonsense anyway? A little investigating shows that: After settling in Vermont in 1968, Sanders ran unsuccessful third-party campaigns for governor and U.S. senator in the early to mid-1970s. As an independent, he was elected mayor of Burlington—Vermont’s most populous city—in 1981, where he was reelected three times. In 1990 he was elected to represent Vermont’s at-large congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1991 Sanders co-founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus. He served as a congressman for 16 years before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006. In 2012, he was reelected with 71% of the popular vote. He is currently Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs from January 3, 2013 – January 3, 2015.” Outsider my aunt fanny.
Although the old socialist is putting up a good fight and in many cases drawing bigger crowds than Hillary, does anyone really think he will be the nominee? Seriously?
But what about all the articles and cartoons of Hillary being one step ahead of the FBI and an indictment, with the FBI closing fast. Lovely dream isn’t it? To think that the law would be the same for a Clinton as for lessor folks just might restore some of our confidence in our system of justice. It’s JMO but I don’t think it’s gonna happen.
I don’t think an Obama “Justice Department” will indict a former Obama SoS. I don’t think an Obama Administration will allow it to happen to another Dem and a Dem that is most apt to carry on his agenda since she needs him, at this point, far more than he needs her. Michelle might like to see Queen Hillary miss the White House throne but I doubt she’ll fight to see it happen. Jarrett, who is smarter and more powerful knows it would be a mistake.
I doubt most of the Washington crowd on either side of the aisle want her indicted. If she’s vulnerable, then so are all of them. And there are, again this is my opinion, too many with skeletons in their own closets to want to see another insider get their just deserts. A small fish is thrown to the wolves periodically just to pretend their is justice for all. A token sacrifice to keep the crowd happy.
Hillary has a lot of baggage, is a poor campaigner, isn’t well liked by the media and has far too many ties to Wall Street that the left claims to abominate.
Everyone knows it, the media reports on it only if they have no other choice and the hypocrisy is so blatant that even many Dems are disgusted by it and her.
She also has the Benghazi baggage although the Dems pretend that its nothing. Just the GOP playing politics. It seems like they will get away with it and that the Republicans have lost every chance they had to nail her for her lies and perfidy about this topic and then she opens her mouth and sticks her foot right in.
As an Independent, a woman without a party and certainly no respect for either I don’t know which pile of incipient compost smells worse.
Liars to the left of me, liars to the right. And in the end, we the voters may well be left with a choice we simply cannot make. For those who simply vote party it will be easy. For those with a conscience – not so much.
