What Hillary Wants Us to Know
Posted on October 24, 2015 by Lou
Hillary Clinton wants us to know that she won’t make the same mistake as Barack Obama, who insisted on talking about cooperation and conciliation with Republicans while they did all they could to insult, disparage and destroy him. As they see it, that behavior paid off. They took back Congress and have the majority of Governors.
Hillary can’t always spell it out, but she alludes to the malicious and disgraceful treatment of President Obama (and her husband).
It’s not their disagreement with us that makes Republicans our enemies. It’s their despicable lies and devious methods. Joe Biden (where has he been!) doesn’t get that, and for that reason alone I’m glad he’s out of the race.
Clinton is appealing in other ways, too. She’s doing a good job already in pointing out Republican “big government” hypocrisy and Donald Trump’s insanity.
Hillary also wants us to know that though she’s not as “left” as Bernie Sanders (are you?) she does get that wealth and income inequality are the central issues of this campaign.
Bernie’s a great candidate, but over the past couple of weeks Hillary has put back in play among progressives the question of who is best equipped to beat a formidable and ruthless enemy.
And then know what to do after you win.
