We saw firsthand in the last 8 years how Thugocracy really works, in real time. Examples too countless to mention but it demonstrated how much like street thugs the government has become. We can’t trust anything it does or says. Of course it was nothing new, not like we didn’t know evolution of government had a mutated gene. And then we elected Barack Obama to the White House to kick it up a couple notches.
We knew in 08 what to expect and somehow our worst expectations were not horrific enough. We assumed, incorrectly, that we the people, with the help of some Congress critters, could hold down the fort. After all, he could only be allowed to go so far, we thought. Some conservatives even laughed at the onset that this change for the worst would be the best thing for conservatives. They rationalized that it would rally conservatives and lead us to victory down the road. That was wishful thinking.
There was no will to stop the president from doing whatever he pleased. Actually, many Republicans bent over backward to give him what he wanted. He never had to pass a real budget in his first term. It was pie in the sky.And Obama went on a shopping spree to make any big spender proud. Oh, and while he did it he told us he was actually saving us money and reducing the deficit. People did not really believe it but they let him have his way. He was, after all, the nation’s first black President. What that had to do with any of it I’ll never know or understand.
Then came the end of his first term and the 2012 election. Surely, he could not win considering the cluster f&&#@ he created. We were wrong about that too. The only way he could win, as David Plouffe put it, was to run as an insurgent candidate — with the plan of fixing the problems. So the incumbent ran like an insurgent and ran against himself.
After all, he was not responsible for any of the problems, including the dragging economy. He was never held accountable for one thing.Then we had the Benghazi attack that put the lie to his chief narrative about terrorism. If the economy was that bad, at least he could claim terrorism was on the run.It was all lies after four years of failure, but what difference at that point did it make?
The thugs reigned in government and they were not going to let it slip from their hands if they could stop it. They just lied and when that failed they lied some more. Getting Candice Crowley to lie for Obama at the debate was an added bonus.
The Art of Revision
Fast forward, one campaign and election later. Now we are treated to all the revision they can muster on how great things are. Obama and Hillary deserve the ‘credit’ for this great progress. Rome is in flames but “have no fear.” Hearing them rave about how good the economy and everything is takes some chutzpah. They got plenty of that. Then came the Democrat convention. I was curious how they’d frame Hillary especially with Obama’s dismal record.
Well, the wait was over after the first few speeches. I saw how they were turning her into Mother Teresa right in front of my eyes. Was this the same failed Sec of State and part of the scandalous Clinton duo we all know? Sure it was, but now she is a saint. Was this that scandal queen we all knew? Seems she could do no wrong and leading a party as the first Nanny in Chief. Bill Clinton declared the era of big government was over, Hillary declares it has only just begun. She promises to continue Obama’s abysmal legacy of failure and even crank up the speed.
Since the convention she has gone to ground, in deep hiding. She comes out to give a very controlled speech every so often then disappears to raise money from all her Wall Street pals and celebrity liberals. But Mother Teresa would have had a hard time living that life. But no matter, she has the integrity and honor of Mother Teresa. No matter how many lies, her web of supporters claims to stand on principle, and her vast experience.
Now comes the Clinton ad that hearkens back to the 3 am phone call ad against Obama. It claims safety or national security is her main qualification. Stay safe and elect Hillary. The entire Mid East is ablaze, while she is holding the matches, and says trust me I’ll keep you safe. Have no fear with Hillary is the subtext. As Tim Kaine puts it: it’s too risky to pick an amateur — mostly because of the danger Hillary-Obama put us in. I’ve never seen such a string of reversed lies. We find out that No lies matter. Hashtag that.
“All it would take is just ‘one wrong move'” in these dangerous times, the ad says.
Just one? So she’s the only one we can trust at this dangerous time. Mother Teresa might say you cannot get away with it. Hillary’s long train of abuse has a halo, satan smiles.
