Pro-Clinton Audience protects Hillary

Democratic Debate, Las Vegas, Nevada: November 15, 2007

There was no speaking truth to power at the Democrat’s gathering (notice I didn’t say debate) on last night. No “all-so-rans” bringing down the Democrat front runner. This was a carefully constructed righting of the Liberal agenda to keep their front runner in front.

And by the number of boos that were issued each time Senator Obama and former Senator John Edwards even looked at Hillary one would have thought that the Clinton campaign planted the audience with pro-Hillary supporters and instructed them to boo and or shout down anyone who attempted to lay a glove on their beloved. (I wouldn’t be surprised if someone comes forward in the next couple of days saying exacting that!)

For the most part this was a pitiable question and answer period disguised as a Presidential debate, there was no debate there was only a very boring and staged attempt to restore one Senator to her rightful place as keeper of the Presidential dynasty.

From the very first question served up all pretty on a silver dish to Senator Clinton, to all the other softball questions lobbed her way, one knew that this was going to be her night all night. A showcase to give her just the right opportunities to hit such sound bits out of the park like, "People are not attacking me because I'm a woman, they're attacking me because I'm ahead."

This was a birthday and not only Governor Bill Richardson’s birthday either. This was all about celebrating the birth of a dynasty. The Clinton dynasty.

John Edwards and Barack Obama should have taken my advice and pulled out of this fixed debate. It was a lose, lose situation for them. They just didn’t know the extent to which the Clinton campaign would go to, to secure a victory.

The pre-emptive strike at Wolf Blitzer set a tone which Edwards and Obama never was able to recover from. Nor was either man able to capitalize on the opening that they created in the last debate.

Instead they both were held captive by a tightly controlled pro-Hillary love feast; moderators, fellow candidates and an audience that was not going to let their damsel be distressed by Hillary bashers even if they are Democrats.

To borrow from a song, Hillary is so vain she probably thinks that this election is about her, she accused the other candidate of the politics of “pile on,” she’s virtually has stirred up hate sentiments against Tim Russert and she’s accused the Republicans of being fixated on her but she said George Bush’s name or “this administration” referring to the Bush administration 100 times if she said it once last night.

That was about 100 times more than anyone else on the stage. I call that a fixation!
Finally like most narcissist Senator Clinton believes that all of history evolves around the fact that she is campaigning to be President and she presents herself as if she is doing something historic. For example Campbell Brown one of the three moderators, asked the Senator about all the feminism themes that she has interwoven into her campaign.
Senator Clinton, you went to your alma mater recently,
Wellesley College, and you said there that your tenure had prepared you to compete in the all-boys-club of presidential politics.
At the same time, your campaign has accused this all-boys-club, surrounding you on stage, of piling on with their attacks against you. And then your husband recently
came to your defense by saying that these, quote, “boys,” had been getting rough with you.

And some have suggested that you, that your campaign, that your husband are exploiting gender as a political issue during this campaign.

What’s really going on here?
Senator Clinton’s answer was bereft of any historical understanding or knowledge. She attempted to frame women’s accomplishments and event civil rights gains to the period of her life time she said,
…But, you know, this is really one of the kind of issues that we can laugh about because it’s exciting when you look at this
field of candidates.
You know, several of us would never have had a chance to stand here and run for president — a Latino, an African-American, a woman — if it hadn’t been for the
progress of America over my lifetime. And I am thrilled to be running to be the first woman president.
Unless Senator Clinton was born in year 1872 her statement was an ignorant attempt to frame all civil rights gains and women’s suffrage around her lifetime. The fact is Hillary is not the first woman to, as she said, “to be running to be the first woman president" there have been many! (list courtesy of Worldwide Guide to Women in Leadership)

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is neither historic nor special because she is a woman.

The only thing that is unique about Senator Clinton’s campaign is that she is the only woman in American history that has attempted to exploit the fact that she was first lady and claim that entitles her to be President of the United States of America.

If the saying, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” is true what I saw of the Democrats last night should stay in Vegas clearly none of them are ready for prime time.

Hillary will win the Democrat nomination for President because Democrats only care about appearances and Hillary appeared to be Siegfried & Roy to Edwards and Obama’s caged tiger act.

It’s time to put on the “Anybody but Clinton” buttons!

    I really hope that people are smart enough to see through the smoke and mirror of Clinton camp. However I'm afraid that I'm too optimistic. For more than 10 years now I have a very low opinion about the intelligence and virtues of my fellow Americans.

    Whole Hillary's campaign is controversial. At first, I thought she is a good candidate but her campaign shows that she can't be taken seriously. I started to change my mind about her when she struggled to give straight answers to simple questions. Next, I get very disappointed when I watched this video which proves that she plants questions during her campaign appearance. Shame on you, Hillary!

  3. Al........ pardon the criticism, but you could have made your point with less than half of your article.

    Where are those buttons?


  4. Yeah you're right! But after watching the Democrat question and answer session last night I just need to vent!

    Thanks for keeping me honest!

    Wolf performed DOWN to expectations, ostensibly "moderating" the Las Vegas Debate, but actully throowing in the fix.

    Moving on, it is time to take stock of the issues that entail a Clinton Candidaccy. Obvously, Conservatism will be CRIMINALIZED, as promised. This makes Huckabee, who has already some experience and some victories over the Clinton Personal destruction Machine, the best choice to deal with Clinton.

    I can't emphasize enough that the Number One Issue in this Presidential Campain is the Malicious use of Prosecutorial Power, as especially in the cases of Nifong, FitzPatrik, Sutton, and Earle. Nifong has already fallen into well deserved SHAME & DISGRACE. Sutton is on the road to his just deserts, with the arrest of that Star Witness/Drug Lord. FitzPatrick's deeds are about to be neutralized but he still needs to be put on notice to skedaddle off to Mongolia. Earle is lucky in that he is far enough along in years that he will reach the Grave via Natural Death before Karma catches up to him, but he still needs to know that moves are underway to desecrate his Tomb.

    . . . but I digress. The fact that the Hillary Clinton Campaign will try to criminalize Conservatism should be the Main Issue, and that her political mignions, those viscious prosecutors, should take casualties comensurate to their evil deeds.
