Politically Speaking – October 11, 2016

October 11, 2016

What a week, starting with last Tuesday’s vice presidential debate on October 4 between Tim Kaine and Mike Pence. After watching the whole thing, I found Tim Kaine to be the perfect running mate for Hillary Clinton. He was rude, arrogant and obnoxious, all rolled up in one.

Clinton and Kaine are indeed two peas in a pod, as my grandmother would say. The whole evening showed Kaine to be exactly what I expected of someone that would run on the same ticket with Clinton.

The mind blower of the evening was when the statement was made that Hillary Clinton was the best one to beat terrorism. Go figure! Hillary Clinton was part of the team in the Barack Obama administration when ISIS came to be, and all this administration did was create more problems by not dealing with reality, drawing their red lines, and calling this murderous pack of Muslim extremists nothing more than a JV team. At this point all I have to say is they are one hell of a JV team.
But back to the debate. Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s running mate, was the only grown-up in the room and far superior to Kaine.

Next up from last week… Monday at a rally in Michigan came the awkward moment when on a rare occasion a Clinton told the truth, and that was on Obamacare. Even though there has been much criticism on the Affordable Care Act, the last criticism came from an unexpected individual, Bill Clinton. He said, “You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care, and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half, and it’s the craziest thing in the world.” Then he went on to say, “But the people getting killed in this deal are the small business people and individuals who make just a little bit too much to get any of these subsidies.”
But adding to Clinton’s remarks, let me personally assure you many of those that do qualify and that are getting Obamacare aren’t getting any kind of bargain, and yes, I’m saying proper care. I’m so glad Bill Clinton recognizes this administration’s mess that his wife is part of.

Now on to Donald Trump’s indefensible comments. But I will point out these comments were made in 2005 and the liberal media has certainly taken advantage of that to keep the focus off their girl, especially in the same time frame comments from Hillary Clinton have surfaced where she said she couldn’t identify with the average person because of the fortune she and Bill enjoy and that her dream is to welcome open borders and open trade. Oh, and let’s not forget her statement that Wall Street would best know how to fix Wall Street.

People, open borders and open trade will be the kiss of death for America as we know it!

So surely if the bought and paid for liberal media can flush out a disgusting old locker room tape on Donald Trump, they can track down the missing 33,000 emails — some putting our national security in jeopardy — that Hillary Clinton lost.

The question now popping up: Is there time to replace Donald Trump on the ticket? The answer is NO.

In the end on this subject, I’m not defending Trump’s statement from 11 years ago, but my question is how can anyone defend Hillary Clinton who is as corrupt as they come! The bottom line is I’m much more concerned about what Hillary Clinton has done than what Donald Trump has said, even though I don’t like what he has said and wish he hadn’t.

Donald Trump did apologize for his lewd comment, but I don’t recall any apology from Bill or Hillary to Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Gennifer Flowers or any of the other women that were abused by Bill Clinton, as well as Hillary Clinton and her threats. Nor do I recall Hillary Clinton apologizing to the four families of those that died in Benghazi. And that’s just a start.

On to Sunday night’s second presidential debate in St. Louis, MO, which was a town hall format. The first question to Trump out of the box was on the locker room banter; he handled it well and took full responsibility. Then it went to Clinton, and of course, in typical Clinton fashion, she went on the attack and talked about him not apologizing. Then on the missing emails, her answer to destroying classified email was that it was a mistake. That’s not good enough.

When asked about her public and private views she skirted the issue, and said (amazing, her favorite phrase) “I don’t remember” or “As I recall.” Again as the night rolled on, Hillary took credit, as she has a number of times, for children having insurance. This wasn’t her bill but Ted Kennedy’s.

The whole debate went in the same fashion. Who won the back and forth bantering? At the close, I think Donald Trump stopped the bleeding; she didn’t knock him out. He’s still in the race! If you listened to Fox News Tuesday morning, Trump won. If you watched and listened to CNN, MSNBC, ABC or NBC, Hillary won! In my opinion, it was a draw. The nastiest in this race is the liberal media.
