So, at this juncture of the election, we must take a second look at the ‘Hillary Factor’…the ‘American Evita’ if you will. All of you Clintonistas (who have now drank the Kerry Kool Aid) that believe that Kerry’s current campaign debacle doesn’t have a Clinton hand in it…are in serious denial.
Let’s review, shall we…
Hillary wants to be President -- I think anyone being honest will admit that. The
So, despite Kerry and Theresa’s misgivings, Terry McAuliffe remains in charge at the DNC –a Clinton Appointee and loyalist. Recent events have all but proven where his true loyalty lies. In spite of the onslaught of evidence that says the CBS documents questioning Bush’s Guard service are forgeries…McAuliffe still choose to run a new DNC ad that referenced Ben Barnes and the very papers at the heart of the CBS scandal.
NBC and CBS have now told the DNC to remove the ads, as clips used of Tim Russert and Dan Rather were never given copyright permission for use. McAuliffe just wasted how much money on ads he knew would be questioned and have to be pulled?
He is giving speeches saying Bush is a liar for stating in 1978 that he was a member of the air force –but there is documentation that clearly shows that for 120 days George W. Bush was an active duty Air Force member...McAuliffe knows that keeping this story alive will only fuel the Swift Vets to soldier on.
He is touting the Ben Barnes interview where Barnes stated that ‘he gave Bush special treatment to get into the Guard’…yet –his daughter has come forward (in several interviews) to say that he is lying. She claims she asked him directly each time this has come up (in EVERY other election that Bush has run in) and her father has always said unequivocally “no”. She related that his story did not change until Barnes became and active Kerry fundraiser and Vice Chair in the campaign –and low and behold…he is Kerry’s biggest money man in
Clinton is now (maybe conveniently?) unable to campaign for Kerry at crunch time –and as Kerry brings all the old Clintonistas into the flock -- who are urging him to push the Vietnam/national Guard debate…Clinton is calling Kerry from his sick bed to tell him to lay off Vietnam. This is so brilliant that even I must be impressed with Magical Me! He KNOWS how haughty Kerry is (especially when his service is questioned) and trust me…Kerry wants no advice from what he deems a back-water poor-southern pot-smoking draft dodger. The beauty of this is that
Notice, if you will, that the Clintonistas who are coming into the campaign are the 1992 crew…all the same people that
This must present a real dilemma to the ‘Anybody but Bush’ crowd (Kerry is now polling with only 38% likeability among his own voters!). I know they can almost taste another Clinton White House, but they don’t want to wait through four more years of Bush. The thought of their idol being the Saboteur of Kerry’s chance --after all the energy they have expelled on his behalf –must be impossible to bear.
Here’s the thing, let me inject a bright side for all –Elephants and Asses alike…We all have something to gain this time. If Kerry wins, he will be replaced in four years with a Republican (I’d bet anything on that) –so Hillary’s out. Hooray for us! If Bush wins –and the hate on the left continues to build –Hillary may just have a chance at being the first woman President. Hooray for you. So we can all relax a bit as we approach the last leg of this race…because of the ‘Hillary Factor’ we all have a chance at happiness whichever way the race goes...
