A big part of the Republican Party has been pissed off since Bill Clinton won the White House. Since that Bill Clinton election many in the GOP started telling stories about the Clinton’s without much proof and a lot of lies. When you keep spreading lies for a long time some of them are bound to stick like glue. Well it worked!
Today we have a Republican Party with many members who do believe many of the lies spread against the Clinton’s and the Obama’s. The Republicans have made a big part of there base so angry over the years with there untrue stories over time, that now it’s blowing up in there faces. Continue reading →
There are just four short weeks before the election. Many facts have been presented as to why Donald Trump represents not just an unqualified person to become president but, in fact, a dangerous option. Trump is often touted as a successful businessman who will use his skills to fix our government. The foundation of this notion is the belief that government is just another business, and that Trump’s skills will be just what the doctor ordered. In fact, government is not just a business. Although Trump is known for his “you’re fired” expression, and in his business organization can single-handedly fire or hire personnel, it does not work that way in government, where it is very difficult, if not impossible in some circumstances, to fire anyone or use this threat to get your way.
The secret of success in dealing with our own government and with foreign governments is, clearly, possessing diplomatic and negotiating skills. We simply do not get Congress or foreign countries to agree with our proposals by threatening to fire them if they don’t. Now we have two unpopular presidential candidates. The question is, which one has the personality and experience to work with Congress and the rest of the world?
Think hard on this question, for we are as close to war as we can get and we certainly should not risk electing a dangerous, emotionally unstable person like Trump. Our children and grandchildren are going to live with the potential threat of nuclear war.
Forget all the other arguments for or against selecting your candidate. Do you really want Donald Trump’s hand on the nuclear button, knowing his personality? Think people, think.
When will the Clinton haters just put the Benghazi story to rest? People upset about Hillary Clinton’s comment at the Benghazi hearing have been either misled, have poor reading comprehension or are just plain lazy. The main exchange between Clinton and a Republican senator is readily available online — go check it out.
The full context of her quote is: “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from happening again, senator.”
The implication is that Clinton said the deaths of the personnel in Libya did not matter. That is misleading. The truth is, she was saying the cause of their deaths should not be the focus of the hearings, but rather understanding how the process failed. That is how it was when 241 servicemen were killed in Lebanon in 1983, and when 13 U.S. embassies were attacked during the George W. Bush years.
She was right. The motive of the killers would not have affected the outcome of the tragedy. Better security and intelligence on the ground might have made a difference, but requests for increased diplomatic security were denied by the Republican Congress, which approved nearly $320 million less than requested by the administration.
Sen. Marco Rubio, in a debate, lied when he said that Clinton lied about Benghazi, and was awarded two Pinocchios by the Washington Post’s fact-checker for the lie.
For those who wonder why someone would vote for a career politician with so much baggage, as opposed to a change agent who is so entertaining, I would urge them to go see “Sully” and ask themselves: In that crisis situation, would they want a pilot with 40 years experience, or someone who played a pilot on TV?
This was the year many Republicans felt they would win it all. All they had to do was get someone who could tear apart Hillary Clinton.
So instead of screening and learning about where all there candidates stood on the issues they went for the guy they say is like them. Yup they picked the guy at the bottom of the barrel. The guy who knew nothing about running for president, or putting a campaign together. The guy who knew nothing about politics in America or issues around the world. They picked the guy who told them the things they wanted to hear even though most of it was made up inside his head.
This was the year Republicans had a large group of candidates to choose from. It was going to be easy to take Hillary Clinton down.
I think it could have been the year for the Republicans if only they had studied their lineup. They had two candidates which I believe would have made this a horse race right now. John Kasich and Jeb Bush were in my opinion the two guys that could have won Washington for the GOP! Continue reading →
