In 2008 Democrat Barack Hussein Obama ran a campaign that smacked of class warfare propaganda. He reached out to the poor, the uneducated, the stupid, and the lazy. He told them that their problems were not their own fault – instead they were victims of a corrupt system that unfairly rewarded the rich and powerful. He promised change they could believe in.
Seven years later, after almost two terms of Democrat policies in the White House, Hillary Clinton is using the exact same tactics. Her heart is bleeding for the working poor. She feels their pain. She says it’s just horrible how they work so hard and yet they can’t afford homes, college tuition, and every darn thing their hearts desire. Never mind that her party has been setting national policies since 2008.
It seems she is promising everything from free college to bigger paychecks. She doesn’t seem to explain how it is that she will deliver these wonderful gifts to the victimized potential voter. THIS TIME the candidate will really change the system to benefit the little guy. I guess she’ll somehow force companies to pay more to American workers instead of offshoring to cheaper alternatives.
It seems clear that Hillary Clinton is selling out her former boss and party member. If he succeeded in delivering his campaign promises, the helpless Americans wouldn’t be in such awful predicaments. Clearly Hillary Clinton is saying that our current President failed to deliver on his promises. So she’s making the same promises and hoping that voters are stupid enough to believe the same empty promises again and again.
Let’s hope the voters are smart enough to see through this charade. Let’s hope they remember the rhetoric of 2004. Let’s hope they question why things will somehow be different this time. Let’s hope they are tired of hearing the same old song and dance about changing the system for the little guy.
We’ve heard this one before. Somehow we’ll probably hear it again regardless of who wins in 2016.
We’d like to applaud Rick Perry for dropping out of the race for the Republican nomination. Although Perry seems like a decent person, he really had no chance to win among a fairly deep field of candidates.
Perry’s campaign had been unable to pay its staffers. He did not qualify for the primetime round of the upcoming CNN debate. Many voters were unable to forget Perry’s infamous “oops” moment during the 2008 campaign.
Sometimes the writing is on the proverbial wall.
People have different reasons for running for office, and winning an election isn’t always the foremost motivation.
Perry was the first to drop out but he won’t be the last. Let’s hope that some of the other fringe candidates have the courage, humility, and sense to drop out soon.
Did you ever notice that Barack Obaba’s initials are B.O.? That is, if you exclude the H for Hussein.
I don’t have a point here, I just thought I’d point it out if you hadn’t noticed. You can make your own conclusions or jokes.
Be sure to tell your friends!
Most people agree that Ronald Reagan was the greatest American president of the 20th century. Those are some big shoes to fill.
The only man that could possibly live up to those lofty standards was George W. Bush.
Can you imagine if 9/11 had occurred during the Obama administration? We’d all be living under sharia law today. And don’t think that Obama wouldn’t love to see that.
When George W. Bush was notified that the country was under attack, did he cower and hide under a desk like Jimmy Carter would have?
No! He kept reading to the children. Imagine the sense of security and safety those lucky kids must have felt. A whole generation of Americans grew up looking to George W. Bush as a protective patriarch.
When the Democrat-controlled Congress caused the financial crisis at the end of George W. Bush’s administration, he could have gone on vacation like Bill Clinton would have. Instead, he guided us through the morass like a beacon in the night. The entire economy could have collapsed, but George W. Bush stood like a mighty oak to support us all in our time of need. As usual, George W. Bush utilized his Harvard MBA and prevented a financial apocalypse with his steady hand.
Finally, who else would have had the courage and resolve to lead us to war with Iraq? Certainly not Walter Mondale. George W. Bush preserved the American way of life with this conflict. Had he not charged forward, we surely would have lost our freedoms.
So the next time you talk to George W. Bush, thank him for his brave leadership. Tell him how you looked up to him as a father figure when you were scared out of your wits. Tell him how his courage inspired you to stand on your own two feet and overcome your fears.
Will there ever be another President like George W. Bush? Probably not in this century or any other.
