Anyone that reads these blogs for more than a week knows I’m a consistency freak. I don’t believe you can change your mind with the blowing of the wind. Ideas and thoughts mean things, and you need to be true to your feelings, and I really don’t care what those feelings are. That’s the thing that grinds me about liberals. They are anything BUT consistent. Need an example? Sure.
Hillary Clinton has been on the campaign trail for about 10 months now, swearing that she backs Barack Obama in not all, but most of his agenda. Yes, there are some things that she’d do different, but overall, she likes the direction he’s taken the country. OK, that’s fair. I don’t agree with it, but it’s fair. So why then is Bill Clinton on the campaign trail in Washington State on Monday telling the crowd, “If you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us.”? Awful legacy? Really? Gee, Bill…you’re sounding more like you belong on the other side of the fence!
And this is the inconsistency you get with these two. Bill is out there, speaking his mind, Hillary is out there playing politician, afraid to say anything that might lose her a vote or two…well, except for the often-heard gaffe (like telling people in Appalachia that she’s going to shut down every coal company in America?). And that is exactly what bugs me about liberals. They are fluid as the day is long when it comes to their policies and their thoughts. The constitution? It’s a “living, breathing document”. Right. When was the last time you saw the constitution breathing? The reason they say that is because they don’t agree with it and want to do away with it slowly, over time. It doesn’t fit their changing mood.
You can pick pretty much any issue out there and I can show you where these folks are off the rails when it comes to being consistent. Now, I’ll be the first to admit the GOP isn’t much better, and I’ve said this type of thing before. You can reduce the abortion debate and the capital punishment debate to its basic element which is the taking of a life. I will agree that one is of an innocent babe, yet to be born and the other is of someone that has either taken a life themselves or has committed some heinous crime that deserves severe punishment, but it is still the taking of a life. So ask yourself, if it is wrong to take a life, then why are we doing it in one instance and not the other?
Neither side is 100% pure on this, I realize, but I also know that liberals are all over the board. This gaffe by Bill Clinton (was it really a gaffe or is he telling the truth?) is just the latest example where people of the same campaign, in fact people that are married to each other don’t sing the same tune in public. I get that they may have differing views on issues, but when Hillary has tied herself so tightly to the president, and Bill is out there saying the legacy we’ve had over the past eight years is awful, that’s not just a difference of opinion, that’s a huge chasm.
And people wonder about Donald Trump and his treatment of women? Really?
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
