I’ll hand it to Hillary Clinton. You have to go a long ways to piss off both sides of an issue. Oh, Donald Trump did it with his comment that women that have had abortions should face some sort of punishment. The left of course hated that one, and the right felt that was taking things too far. Well, apparently, Donald needs to move over. Someone else has socks they need to chew on and surprise! It’s Hillary!
Hillary Clinton put both feet in her mouth the other day, as she was responding to Trump’s weird remarks. Clinton, who as a “season and experienced politician” (her words, not mine!) said the following: “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” Mrs. Clinton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Now that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything we possibly can in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support.” Of course, that really pisses off the conservatives in the country who view life beginning at conception. But that wasn’t enough for the Democrats’ front-runner. She had to piss off the left as well adding: “There is room for reasonable kinds of restrictions” on abortion during the third trimester of pregnancy. Both quotes by the way, stolen from the Washington Times website…just to give proper bows of the head to the proper sources!
And there you have it. A candidate so unsure of herself that she is trying to play all sides to all issues and not piss off anyone. She is missing the first rule of politics which basically says, “Run on your gut feel of an issue, and know you’re going to piss off half the people out there when you take a stand, but for God’s sakes, take a stand!” I learned that when I ran for a board of directors in the town I’m in. I had to look people in the eye and tell them, “You and I are going to have to agree to disagree on this one because I don’t feel that way, and I can’t back your stance on this issue.” Tough to do because you know that you’re going to end up losing that person’s vote. You have to do it because if you don’t, you sound like Hillary, pandering to all sides and afraid to take a position on anything until you field test it to see which way the wind is blowing. That type of politician has no backbone. They have no spine. They flip and flop in the wind, and the same thing was said about Hillary’s husband when he was president. He was afraid to make a stand on something until he went out and had a poll taken to see where the people were on the issue.
Hillary Clinton has proven herself to be a terrible candidate. She’s not a politician. She’s not a good leader, and she’s certainly not a good choice for president of a country. That goes double when you’re talking about the most powerful country on the planet. Sorry Hillary…time to bake some cookies and play grandma.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
