Forty-Seven Seconds of Hillary

 

Astonishing. To paraphrase Talleyrand on the Bourbons, elle n’a rien appris, ni rien oublié.

    Run, Hillary, Run! We can’t ask for a better candidate.

    So, she won the non-deplorable parts of the country. White women are spineless parrots of their menfolk.

    Sounds like a winning 2020 platform to me.

    I am going to offer this topic a “like,” Peter, but really, even seven seconds of Hillary is too much.

    I love the blithe, bigoted way she assumes that anyone who doesn’t agree with her lefty ideology is a racist and nativist. She might recall the words of the late Democratic Senator Daniel Moynihan, who had a PhD. in Sociology- “Over the course of my life I learned the conservative truth that it is the culture of a society that determines it ‘s success.” I.e., many people are concerned that many immigrants nay not share American values, a problem exacerbated by the fact that not only due our schools no longer teach them, but often attack them. When it reaches the point that university students are calling free speech ‘racist,’ we can no longer count on our education system to teach American/Enlightenment values to immigrants.

    Well not so backward that they didn’t understand her, and who she was.

    So that’s why Democrats are attacking Nikki Haley.

    There were 63 million Trump voters. I understand that he sometimes says things that are, umm. intemperate, but has he ever slimed this many people? Will those media outlets who live for Trump’s every questionable utterance recognize the enormity of these accusations from HRC? Unfortunately, not likely.

    She has learned nothing. Absolutely nothing. Shame on her.

    I intend to throw a party complete with champagne, fireworks, and filet mignon for everyone the day this woman assumes room temperature.

    The word “delusional” comes to mind. I honestly don’t know whether to despise her or feel sorry for her. The former seems more appropriate because that seems to be her attitude toward those who disagree with her.

    Some chilling attitudes. She represents more GDP areas. Astonishing.

    And those high GDP areas don’t have large numbers of people ( voters) who are poor and dependent?

    And let’s look at federal government spending in the areas Clinton, won shall we?

    And…where was she going with this? Is she implying that we need to start counting people as 3/5 or some preset fraction if they don’t agree with a selected (by Hillary) profile? Or do the “enlightened ones” need to be weighed a bit heavier, say 1.2 votes? But I thought not having a hidden finger on the scales WAS democracy….

    Everyone on the left believes this. Even “nice” people I know who are on the left believe this. They’re “nice” about it, in an “oh, you poor things, you just can’t help it” sort of way. But they believe this.

    I was struck by her statement that the parts of the country that voted for her represent 2/3 of the Gross National Product. That fraction is skewed by the large populations that live near the coasts and drive the service economies there. But how much wheat, corn, soybeans, beef, chicken, pork, and petroleum products do those regions produce? Very little and they would be in a bad way if “red” America did not produce those things for them.

    Peter,

    It isn’t so much that Hillary is ignorant, it’s just that she believes so many things that aren’t so.

    Regards,

    Jim

    And still Governor Moonbeam calls California the “engine” of the American economy. Clinton beat Trump here by almost a 2 to 1 margin.

    I didn’t vote for Trump because I have problems with Blacks or women getting ahead. I voted for Trump because I preferred the two-bit real estate grifter who made money in New York over the two-bit real estate grifter who didn’t in Arkansas.

    She should have stuck with cattle futures.

    Perhaps She should have given a few speeches using a Fly Over accent…. sure would have fooled Us deplorables into voting for Her.

    Maybe delusional is accurate. I don’t know – I think her ~60 million voters would agree with every one of those utterances. So it’s lucid to half the country. Mass delusion? No, just dead wrong. When Donald Trump doesn’t usher in the fourth reich and people end up doing better than they thought they would, then we’ll see just how strong this Democrat charm really is.

    As I have state ad infinitum, the left has given up on persuading people. Her speech is just another preening unfunny Jimmy Kimmel speech. The left cannot win without persuasion.

    Sure they can. All they need to do is import enough people from other countries.

    The truth is that that part of her statement was correct. NY, LA, Chicago, San Francisco – these and similar places account for much of the GDP of the US.

    The counter, though, is that all of these places are on the edge of financial ruin through government mismanagement. Indeed there are poor people and dependent people and people who will have to pay for the mismanagement for decades to come. People without options. These regions are just as weak as the GDP figures portray them as strong.

    And the Republicans can’t make headway in any of those places. Should be easy. I hope they follow Trump’s lead.

    So she has someone still combing through the election results, shoving those numbers into ridiculous contortions to prove that her spectacular loss wasn’t really so bad? So hideously pathetic it is a special breed of pathetic: Hillary-pathetic.

    Ah lots of gems.

    I “like” the part where she intertwines economic success with virtue and its implied corollary.

    Well, there’s some truth to that if GDP is the measure.
