I used to have great respect for the Clintons, but not after this primary season. They seem to have no idea that because of the Internets, a lie, misquote, deceptions, and revisionist history are hitting the world’s monitors and YouTube before either of them has a chance to take another breath.
And I think I can safely say, that at one time or another over the course of the campaign, Hillary committed all of the above - some more than once.
For me it began with her vote for Bush’s invasion of Iraq, and since the campaign gaffs started right out of the gate it’s been a downhill ride. You know what I’m talking about. “Doing well among hard-working white men” was about as blatantly racist as one can get. Racism is alive and well in this country, though in our media it remains the elephant in the living room. One right wingnut posted the following on his blog in a box containing the infamous photo of Obama in native African garb:
“Is THIS the type of guy you want running America? I Don’t!(I have the screen grab, since he has taken that post down. Nothing can be hidden anymore.)
In fact, I’m starting to come to the realization that it may be up to a sole person, acting alone, to make certain this guy is never allowed to hold the most powerful office in the world. Sorry it may have to be that way, but it may.”
There’s a good reason the Secret Service has already been deployed for his protection. This information was an off hand sound bite all but dismissed on the news this morning. No one wants to touch the truth. I wonder if the talking heads at CNN or MSNBC will take note and report it for what it is. I won’t hold my breath.
Oh, and in case you missed them last night listen to Obama’s Speech, then listen to McSame’s and see and hear the big difference. They are all over the web.
And so it goes.
