Call out the guard….Clinton guard that is. Geesh, Clintons seem to be taking fire these days from the strangest places. The logic is just as strange.
Take Kirsten Gillibrand, for instance. Take her away. Miss Goody Two-Shoes threw the big Bubba and the dynastic Clinton duo right under the big yellow bus. The wheels go ’round and ’round, where they stop no one knows.
Roger Waters penned the lyrics of the Pink Floyd song:
“Have a cigar, you’re gonna go far…. We call it riding the gravy train.”
And right away, Gillibrand got pushback from the Clintonistas.
“Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual blowjob. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand?” Philippe Reines, an adviser to Hillary Clinton during her tenure in the Senate, at the State Department and during last year’s campaign, wrote on Twitter. “Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons’ endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite. Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. Best of luck.”
Let the hits roll, on Gillibrand. Irony of getting Clinton’s seat, taking Clinton money and then throwing Bubba under the bus. But she really can’t get away with that when, as Reines reminded her, she was one of the defenders and took money off the Clinton machine. She acts like a search light in the fog. But the fog of Gillibrand is very dense.
Before you cheer-on Gillibrand, know it’s just part of the liberals’ revision revolution.
Included in Reines’ online post was a link to the Times story, in which Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said it would have been the “appropriate response” for Bill Clinton to resign in response to revelations that he had a sexual relationship with a White House intern, Lewinsky, while he was president. Gillibrand couched her statement to the Times by saying Clinton’s scandal occurred in a different era and that it would have played out much differently had it happened today.
So there’s that different era thing, again. That’s code for liberals’ evolution theme song, “Move On.” And Dems keep moving and moving along. While moving, though, pay no attention to who has to be thrown under the bus to keep the wheels moving.
No, Gillibrand, you don’t get to do that so easy. You were wrong then on the Clintons and you’re wrong now trying to distance yourself for political gain. Different era never applies to any of the left’s old ideas. It doesn’t even apply to old, stuffy leadership in the DNC. And you, Kirsten, do not represent any new era. Only more revision. It’s the pretend game that it didn’t happen, times were different then. [ctrl+alt+del history]
Actually, the left changed the times and era with the Clintons. You changed politics. But what never changed or evolved over years since was the Clintons. You used them as your benchmark for political accomplishments. You can’t have it both ways. On one hand the left made them the standard, and on the other you now denounce your total dismissal of him. Hillary has the same problems. Yet the left always thinks it can just reinvent itself, revise history to suit. Only reality and history didn’t change. Leftists are all still liars and revisers. You are the people who argued against evidence to the contrary — it didn’t count or apply. Now you are saying that history doesn’t apply now. Times are different.
Let’s be honest, what Gillibrand is really saying is what Clinton did, and what happened then, was okay in that era. But this is a different era with a different reaction. We decide. So all they keep saying now is “times are different now.” Just forget it, Clinton was a bygone era. No, not so easy. You can’t have all the benefits, both ways.
Clintons set the marker: “its a personal indiscretion that doesn’t matter.” Forget all that. The left changed the culture, changed the standard, and lowered the bar. Now you represent the high bar? Now you climb to the top of the hill? So what is different is Kirsten. The other reason to slide Clinton under the bus is so they don’t have to defend him. It ain’t going to work this time. You can’t repeal gravity, and you can’t delete history.
Gillibrand is preparing a run in 2020, but she won’t go far running away from the Clintons.
But have a cigar for a consolation prize.
