Thoughts On Clinton

I can’t say that I am either surprised or euphoric at the fact Hillary Clinton has declared to run for President.   We have all known that this was coming for some time.  Hillary is competent, far more so than the goons running for the Republicans. But as long as she has been in the public eye, I have no true sense of what she believes.  If you know American history, one will see that Bill was too often willing to sell out the working and middle class.  Like Reagan and Bush before him, and like W. after him, he took steps that helped lead to the financial meltdown of 2008. In many ways he was a conservative democrat.  Hillary, if entrusted with power, may be different, but there is no way to know that until she is entrusted with that power.  I am still hoping that Elizabeth Warren runs, though I am willing to listen to what Hillary has to say.  But anyway, any misgivings I may have about her are nullified by the complete insanity of the modern day GOP.  If it is between her and any of these flat earthers the Republicans are putting up, I will not only vote for Hillary, but canvass for her. 

Clinton Email Scandal

This whole Hillary Clinton email scandal seems ridiculously stupid.  The latest much to do about nothing.  Look, I would prefer if Elizabeth Warren was the candidate.  Although I’d vote for Clinton in a heartbeat over the Republican’s mutant pack, I’m not itching for there to be another Clinton in the Whitehouse.  If you read history you realize that Bill Clinton, though the economy was decent while he was in office, did many things that contributed to the weakening of the American worker over the longterm.  Perhaps HRC would be better, but the policies of the Clinton years were a mixed bag.  That being said, at least the Clintons actually want to govern instead of implementing a bunch of ideology driven policies that are already proven failures.

But anyway, I have yet to read anything about the Clinton emails that seems anything other than a controversy created to try to discredit her in the mainstream press.  It is heat without light, a distraction, to bring her low, while preventing us on focusing on Republican policies that are only going to benefit the extremely wealthy.  Keep your eyes on the ball…
