Hillary Supporters: Enlighten Me, Please

One of my favorite sitcoms is 'Last Man Standing.' It stars Tim Allen as an uber conservative husband who frequently throws anti-Obama, Clinton barbs into every episode. He is disappointed to learn that his wife Vanessa had donated to Hillary's campaign. When she explains why to her uber conservative daughter, she says, " For the first time in the history of this country, the president might not be a man. I mean, think about that. There's never been a more exciting time to be a woman. "So Hillary supporters, is that it? You support her simply because she's a woman?

On the show, Vanessa is a very intelligent geologist who nevertheless becomes as mindless as those Obama supporters who voted for Obama because the MSM convinced them that he was a very intelligent black man. they didn't bother vetting him or his voting record as senator. They ignored his dubious associations with anti-American radicals and terrorists like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohm. So, Hillary Supporters, are you doing the same lame job in vetting your candidate?

Mrs. Clinton still tops the list of Democrat candidates for 2016 presidency and it boggles my mind trying to figure out why. She was my senator for 8 years and had absolutely no achievements other than naming public buildings and giving her campaign donors special perks.

Camille Paglia, noted liberal intellectual describes Hillary Clinton perfectly in a Salon column: "Hillary is a mess. And we're going to reward the presidency to a woman who's enabled the depredations and exploitation of women by that cornpone husband of hers? The way feminists have spoken makes us blind to Hillary's record of trashing [women]. They were going to try to destroy Monica Lewinsky. It's a scandal! Anyone who believes in sexual harassment guidelines should have seen that the disparity of power between Clinton and Monica Lewinsky was one of the most grotesque ever in the history of sex crime. He's a sex criminal! We're going to put that guy back in the White House? Hillary's ridden on his coattails. This is not a woman who has her own career, who's made her own career! The woman who failed the bar exam in Washington! The only reason she went to Arkansas and got a job in the Rose law firm was because her husband was a politician."

In a sane world, Hillary's candidacy would be hilarious but the majority of our voters have become low-info and downright gullible, easily influenced by style rather than substance. Our college campuses are riddled with voting-eligible students who do not recognize Benghazi as a prime negative for Hillary Clinton, They haven't any idea what Benghazi even is. If they did, they would find that Clinton's emails disqualifies her from being president and should, in a sane world, have her charged with treason.

The Democratic Party which decided it had appeased all the multi-culturalists and race demagogues with Barack Obama has now switched its preference to gender and LGBT politicking. They now seek to impress with an all white privileged cast of characters.

I am at a loss to understand Hillary Clinton's appeal as a campaigner. She is the epitome of a shameless panderer playing to whatever crowd she's facing. Although born in Chicago she switches to a cornpone Southern accent in the same way Al Gore did in black churches in 2000. So pathetic.

Her most recent attempt to identify with Hispanics has backfired in a huge way via the social network and tweeters who were affronted by Hillary calling herself 'abuela' because she is now a grandmother. I am an abuela of 12 grandchildren and my own abuela whom we called Tata, bear little resemblance to Hillary Rodham Clinton, the millionairess from Chappaqua, NY who was responsible for the death of our ambassador to Libya because she ignored his pleas for tighter security. Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were murdered on September 11, 2012 by Islamic radicals yet Secretary of State Clinton and her boss lied to the country and blamed a You Tube video mocking Mohammed for the attack. Emails and other released documents reveal that she had told her family the truth but apparently didn't think the nation deserved the same treatment. Later on testifying before a House committee , she threw out her arms in exasperation and asked, "What difference does it make?"

Do her supporters know that she in essence blamed the Ambassador for his own death ("Chris Stevens had an opportunity to reach me directly any time he thought there was something of importance ") and she lied about telling the families of the slain that the anti-Islam video was the cause behind the attack. Tyrone Woods' father said he hugged Clinton and shook her hand. Then "she said we are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of my son ... She said 'the filmmaker who was responsible for the death of your son.' "

Do they know that when she was on the Democrat Watergate investigative staff, she was fired by her boss Jerry Zeifman who said that Hillary, "engaged in a variety of self-serving unethical practices in violation of House rules." On his website he wrote, "Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a senator or president — and if she were to become president, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed." This came from a Democrat of the old order not what passes for a political party today which really doesn't care about ethics or morality. Now accused serial rapist, Bill Clinton, will be brought in to lend gravitas to her campaign. Unbelievable.

When the possibility of other Democrats vying for the 2016 race were mentioned, Hillary loyalist, James Carville, said, "they're all wasting their time. Hillary will win because she's a woman and it's about time, right?"

Maybe it's just time for all Democrats to wake up and drink anything but Kool-Aid.
