Isn’t it Historic? *Open Thread*

by

Once again we have a historic moment for the Democrats. In 2008 they got the first African American elected to the Oval Office. It was historic! It was also a man who was unqualified for the job and who has taken a divided country and divided it further. A mostly unreported disaster that is seldom held to account by a media that was part of the slobbering love affair that elected him. A big part. A gigantic part. But it was historic.

I don’t base my vote on race or gender. My preference is for people qualified to do the job. Obama wasn’t. After nearly 8 years in office he doesn’t seem to get the concept that he isn’t President of the Democrat/Liberal Party, he’s POTUS and he is supposed to represent ALL of us not just those that agree with him. Ditto FLOTUS who is still aggrieved about something and plays the victim at every possible moment.

Now that Hillary has clinched her party’s nomination we hear about how her gender makes her historic and how she broke the glass ceiling. We will hear about it until our eyes bleed.

There won’t be much talk about her accomplishments or qualifications because she has few/none. In fact quite the contrary – she’s corrupt from the top of her expensive hairdo to her kitten heels. But she’s a woman so hallelujah!

The Democrat primary was the thrilling story of someone overcoming all her advantages to eventually beat the underdog.

The email scandal that just won’t tgo away will probably not bring her down. She is Hillary Clinton and rules and laws that apply to lesser mortals don’t apply to her. Now that Obama has endorsed her you can bet that the DOJ will pursue her not. Should James Comey not back off I would suggest he hire a food taster and take alternate routes home. I suspect he will back off.

Imagine if you can the astonishing fact that 70+ percent of Democrats say they would vote for her even if she is indicted. Think she’s corrupt? What about them?

I know we’ve become accustomed to voters who don’t care about the character of those they support or about the issues. They chant silly slogans and ignore anything resembling a fact. We have seen within the past decade not one, not two, but three cult of personality candidates. Their supporters are all about what is worst in American politics and people.

First came the Obots. Those who were so in love with the melanin in his skin that they cared about nothing else. Dimwitted big time columnist fell in love with the crease in Obama’s pants. And who can forget Chris Matthews and that infamous “tingle up his leg”? It’s embarrassing when teenagers act this way about some rock star. Adults about a politician? Mortifying.

Now in one election we have the outsider cult of Trump and the gender cult of Clinton.

She is historic. She has already broken the glass ceiling and women should be proud. I would be proud if it was a woman of character. But it’s Hillary. Historic just ain’t enough to cover her flaws.

There was a time I supported Hillary Clinton. I supported her partially because the idea of a charlatan like Obama in the White House was unthinkable. We’ve had nearly 8 years of his unthinkable administration and we were right. He’s been a ghastly POTUS.

In defense of those of us who supported Hillary that was before Benghazi and the whole email scandal. We thought we knew all about her and although she wasn’t perfect she sure was better than Obama.

I remember Hillary supporters claiming that if she was SoS she would do all the work and Obama would get all the credit. I don’t know if either of these historic people want to take credit for the mess the Obama Administration, Secretary of State Clinton, or even Secretary of State Kerry have made around the world. Honesty would compel media to place blame but when was the last time we had an honest media?

Historic means something that is famous or important in history. Something that is historic can be good or bad. After all, Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House was historic. Not good even for her own party, but definitely historic. Also to be remembered is that World War Two was historic and so was the Johnstown Flood. Historic ain’t always a good thing.

One of the many problems with media and pundidiots is that once they fasten onto a word it is used until it is tiresome.

Simple Definition of tiresome: causing you to feel bored, annoyed, or impatient

Regurgitating the same word to describe something in the same way over and over again certainly qualifies as tiresome.

I am glad that some writers, who I respect, find the whole historic meme tiresome. And who see historic in much the same light as I do.

    EXCELLENT post, Marge. You are so spot on. Great that Hillary is a woman and all, but just like with Barack, it SHOULD matter who the person IS. Not these days. That seems to be so 20th Century…

  2. kenoshamarge Says:

    Seems to me that Hillary is trimming her sails to a prevailing wind after Orlando. She’s still to be counted as a gun grabber but she did say “radical Islamic Terrorist”.

    Now we have “historic” with two nominees that are disliked by a majority of the American people. Which shows you how corrupt and incompetent the two major parties are. Not to forget the Libertarians who nominee a coo coo like Johnson.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Well yeah, there is that abt Hillary – at least she can call them radical Islamists. These days, that seems to be a major shift. UGH.

      But yeah – both of them are highly disliked though Trump is becoming even more disliked as time goes on. No kidding. Like we didn’t know that was going to happen already and like we didn’t tell everyone this was going to happen.

      GRRR.

    I have been a woman longer than hillary has been alive. that does not qualify me to be president. And I know how to properly use e-mail. If that is the best she”s got, she is in trouble.

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I also am older than Hillary and am not qualified to be POTUS because of gender. By all accounts she’s a hard worker, so am I – still not qualified.

      She refused to follow the rules and laws of the office she held as SoS and her behavior before, during and after Benghazi show a depraved indifference that should be prosecutable.

    this needs to be investigated

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Obama and the libs are too busy blaming Christian Americans and law-abiding gun owners for the despicable acts committed by MUSLIM terrorists that he will lie, spin, and keep legitimate investigations from showing what is an obvious truth.

      As more and more citizens realize that the lib agenda doesn’t protect them I suspect it will cease to work for the left. After all, terrorists don’t go into churches, bars, or board planes and ask if you are Islamaphobic. They just kill anyone they encounter.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      That is sadly too true, Marge. An old friend made the comparison of radical Islamic terrorists to Christians in something I put up on Facebook in relation to The Hill article abt the Democrats and their 15 hr filibuster. WOW. There is simply no comparison. None. It is unbelievably offensive to even make the comparison, IMO.

      The Obama Administration is one of the most corrupt we have ever had. And yet there is little or no reporting of their criminality.

      Media is too busy with it’s slobbering love affair over the melanin in his skin and the crease in his pants to bother to investigate. Media is a co-conspirator in everything criminal he does. Chris Matthews wasn’t the only one with a “tingle” up his whatever.

    Obama on Orlando: It’s All About the Guns

    https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2016/06/obama-on-orlando-its-all-about-the-guns

    With Obama it’s always about the guns. You would think the guns walked into the club on their own and perpetrated the murders. The fingers on the guns don’t matter unless the libs can find a conservative finger. Then all is well and they are in their happy place. Fricking sicko vermin!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      GRRRRR – that is INFURIATING. Absolutely INFURIATING.

      WTH is WRONG with him and his minions?? And speaking of, they really will believe whatever pablum Obama and the Dems spoon feed them. The lack of reason by people who should KNOW better is astonishing…

    ‘Huge Win’: Bogus Charge DROPPED Against Pro-Life Activist Behind Planned Parenthood Videos

    In what his lawyers are calling “a huge win for the pro-life movement,” a “bogus charge” against David Dalieden, one of the pro-life activists behind the Planned Parenthood undercover videos, was thrown out by a Harris County Texas judge on Tuesday.

    I reckon these groups are supporting Clinton because she is so “historic,” so why look deeper, right? Yeah. Right: http://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2016/06/16/state-of-women-speakers-laud-hillary-despite-clinton-foundations-ties-to-regimes-that-suppress-women-n2178832

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      This is the kind of crap that drives me nuts! How can you support people like Clinton? She and Bill are corrupt to the core. It’s obvious and true. The Clinton Foundation is a disgrace.

      Is an agenda so important that people can excuse corruption? It would appear so.

      I think more of my integrity than that. Bad is bad and dishonest is dishonest and a crook is a crook. I don’t care if they come from the left or the right or what gender or color they are – if they’re bad people I want nothing to do with them.

      When did a majority of the citizens of this country become as corrupt as the government they claim to loathe?

      When did I/we become so out of step?

    WHOA this is interesting.

    Gee, you don’t say. Seems the FBI really does have some MAJOR explaining to do: http://therightscoop.com/uh-oh-gun-store-says-they-did-report-orlando-shooter-to-fbi-weeks-before-massacre/

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I thought Comey was supposed to be the good guy – the one honest man in our Federal Law Enforcement? Maybe that’s another lie we’ve been sold. Because right now he’s looking more like just another apologist for a federal government that can’t get out of it’s own way.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        I know the FBI isn’t perfect, but their track record on dealing with Islamist terrorists is pitiful. I think it comes from the top down, though – meaning Obama, as opposed to Comey. But if that is the case, and Comey falls in line with it, then yeah, he isn’t the man people keep telling us he is.
