In Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow we discussed the voters’ demand for real CHANGE FOR THE BETTER and warned that the corrupt Barack Obama forces would do everything to stop the needed CHANGE and force Hillary Clinton 2016 into becoming a defender of the corrupt Barack Obama status quo:
These people are not interested in Hillary Clinton nor what is good for America. They are “pimping” Hillary Clinton for self-interests (yes Donna, we are also talking about you). So what should Hillary Clinton do?
What Hillary Clinton should do is decide on who her friends are and who has the best interests of America in heart and mind. Those Obama apparatchiks now jumping on the Hillary Clinton 2016 team should be squeezed dry of whatever benefits can be extracted from them. But at some point (the clock started ticking the moment ObamaCare registration for January 1 coverage ended) Hillary Clinton has to choose between the Obama coalition and the Hillary Clinton coalition.
Hillary Clinton can win by bringing back senior voters and the white working class voters that have dumped the Democratic Party they once gave allegiance to. This will enrage the DailyKooks and Obama apparatchiks. But it is the only way for Hillary Clinton to win.
Barack Obama apparatchiks that have infiltrated Hillary Clinton 2016 are terrified that Hillary Clinton will succumb to logic and reality and become the candidate of change from Barack Obama. These Obama loving parasites in Hillary Clinton 2016 know if Hillary tells the truth about Barack Obama their lame duck will be a dead duck.
These past few days we have seen the corrupt Obama pimps who PRETENDED to support Hillary Clinton 2016 attack Hillary Clinton for telling the truth about the failure that is Barack Obama. Axelrod tweeted a stupid attack and Obama said it was all “horseshit”. The DailyKooks and Move-On are enraged and threatening Hillary. The lawless Talkleftivists are infuriated and no longer willing to support Hillary Clinton in 2016 because the one thing they love about Obama is his hatred of Israel.
Wittle Ezra Klein and Ron Brownstein think Hillary does not know how much the party has changed since 2008 and wonder why she is running 2008 all over again. Ron Fournier and others think Hillary is cray-cray to criticize Messiah. The New York Times is only now informing its readers that all is not well with Barack and Hillary and their opposing world views. Leftist like Joan Walsh and the Century Foundation are demanding that Hillary bow to their warped view of the world or face obliteration for the apostasy. Bernie Sanders who wants to run for president from the Left is mewling about not “anointing” Hillary.
As usual, foolish Republicans/conservatives fail to grasp what is happening and prefer to snicker instead of getting to safe ground after this momentous political earthquake. Plain dumb are those that take seriously Hillary’s comic “walk back” apologies to Barry. Just plain dumb. Hillary just rammed her eight inch stilettos up Obama’s um, nose, then says “Oh, I didn’t mean to dig so hard… sorry” – this is a real sincere hug and apology, not snark and phony, for the plain dumb and blind.
The only smart analysis from the right we have heard comes from Bill Kristol. Kristol weeps for Hillary’s “ruthless” beating of Barack Obama and tries to tie Hillary as more responsible for Obama boobery but otherwise his analysis is pretty good (especially the part about Hillary’s “brand”).
It is all as we have foreseen. The Kook Left will never allow Hillary to be the nominee of what once was the Democratic Party. The crazed Left will never let go of the great institution they now infest and all the great wealth that powerful institution attracts from the corrupt. And that is our starting off point today.
In 1992 Bill Clinton fought the Kook Left which repeatedly managed to nominate candidates hostile to the white working class. Those candidates always managed to lose and it was Bill Clinton with his appeal to the white working class bedrock of the Democratic Party who became president. The party establishment was not happy with the Man From Hope but at least he brought them power and the prestige of office.
Bill Clinton took on the rabid Left, race-baiters, the party establishment, and won. But the party then had a large component of common sense liberals. They saw the madness of nominating presidential candidates so far to the Left and so hostile, by demeanor, culture, and economic wealth, to the white working class. The party back then was not beyond saving. Hillary Clinton faces a party that is so far gone, so corrupt, so insanely to the Left that the party establishment would rather lose elections than surrender institutional control and ideological stranglehold of the party.
The Left, as we predicted, is waiting for Elizabeth Warren or some other nut to collect chits and endorsements behind the scenes, issue declarations not to run for president, then once party leaders and Obama’s corrupt machine are in place behind her – emerge to challenge Hillary Clinton in 2016. At the very least the Left wants a candidate of the Left to run against Hillary Clinton in 2016 in order to “move” and cement Hillary to the Left.
But two can play that game. Hillary can threaten not to run unless the party does as she demands and move to the center. She has the clout and the credibility. She also has an alternate successful route to the presidency that no other candidate this election cycle has. If the Left wants to deny her the nomination, and they do, Hillary should move soon to prepare for a third way.
Right now only Hillary Clinton has a clear shot to become president. Her only obstacle is getting the nomination from a party that is insane and whose leaders and power centers need her but don’t want her. Her support among the party rank and file is wide if not necessarily deep (although we do think it is deep) but as we saw in 2008 the party establishment is king and they can undermine her. The interests against Hillary don’t care that Hillary is still a powerhouse with the white working class. They know Hillary is still a powerhouse fundraiser. They fear that Hillary, in short, is a force of nature at this point but they think they can still stop her.
The Republicans have many candidates in 2016 with lots of possibilities. Against anyone but Hillary some of these candidates will easily win the White House. Some of these Republicans have strong points of view and even stronger convictions – such as Cruz. Some, like Scott Walker, have figured out how to destroy the institutional support structure of the Left. Some, like Rand Paul, have a new direction and new ideology for the Republican Party. And some like Rick Perry have a tried and true, stick to the fundamentals typical Republican campaign strategy. All can win if the opposition candidate is not Hillary Clinton.
Against Hillary, eh, not so much now that she sees the wisdom of attacking Barack Obama and only if she continues on this course, which of course the Left hates. If she does not stay on this course she will lose but if she stays on this course she will be endangered by the Left.
So what should Hillary Clinton do? She has to attack Barack Obama. But the Left is furious at those attacks and threaten to escalate attacks against her. The Left will run a scorched earth war against Hillary. The Left wants Hillary to move to the far Left and will run a campaign to force her to do so. Hillary’s campaign is infested with Obama termites (yeah Tommy, we’re thinking of you dude) and they can undermine her from within as they did in 2008 when 2×4 Chuck Schumer and Solis Doyle (and Rangel and Rahm Emanuel) not to mention Ted Kennedy done her in with treachery.
Screw them all Hillary and run third party.
A Hillary Clinton third party run would separate the loyal women from the rats. Yes she would lose the institutional power of an established party and all the funding that means. And we are not fools, that is no small matter because the power of our established political parties is greater than most understand. But Hell, you can’t lose what you don’t really own and anyway we live with the internet and that is a great power unto itself.
Now, we are not fools when it comes to third parties. We do not believe a third party is a magic fixer of our political woes. Third parties can be as corrupt and corruptible as Republicans or Democrats. But we are talking about something quite different.
Combine the organizing power of new technologies such as the internet with the brand power of the Clinton name. Spice it with the new fundraising landscape of Citizens United. Add the intellectual juice of the founders and you have what we are talking about.
Hillary Clinton in 2016 can say:
“My fellow Americans. You know me. You know what I stand for. You might not always agree with me but you know my love for this exceptional country and my belief that America is and must remain a beacon of light for all the world.
You know me and you know that I like every other political figure in this country have been part of the problem. I have been a supporter of the Democratic Party even when I disagreed with the direction and policy positions of the party. But now it is time for a change. It is time for a new politics. It is time to finally cross the bridge into the 21st century that Bill Clinton talked about in 1996.
Crossing that bridge has been a long time coming. At the beginning of the century a Republican president led us astray. Eight years later a Democratic president has us wandering down the wrong track into oblivion.
A recent study concluded that our citizens have “near zero impact” on government policy. This means our democracy is no more.
The blame for the loss of our democracy is directly attributable to our political parties which care more about themselves than about the American people. The founders warned us. The founders did not want political parties. James Madison stated that, human passions, have, in turn, divided mankind into parties, inflamed them with mutual animosity, and rendered them much more disposed to vex and oppress each other than to co-operate for their common good.
As I said, I have been part of the problem but now I want to be part of the solution. Republicans hate Democrats. Democrats hate Republicans. Republican voters are angry with the Republican Party and Democrat voters are angry with the Democratic Party. Let’s end this. Let individuals stand for office on their own.
There once was a need for political parties. We needed them to organize for our political interests. But that is no longer true.
With our technology such as the internet and cell phones and text messages and emails and websites we can organize almost instantaneously.
A candidate for political office does not have to adhere to the narrow confines of a party ideology for the sake of party support. A candidate can now come to the American people and say I believe in this socially liberal policy and at the same time I believe in this fiscally sound policy and I ask for your support and financial contributions. It is then for the people to decide.
That’s why today I am asking for your support unencumbered by the chains of a political party and free to speak for the common good not narrow interests.
Whatever party you belonged to, whatever faction once had your allegiance, join me as we finally cross the bridge into the 21st century.”
Hillary Clinton can wait until the last minute to make her move. By then the party will be without a declared candidate or a candidate so weak and so far to the Left that Bernie Sanders will appear to be a giant.
The ideal Hard Choice would be for Hillary to be the destroyer of political factions and lead the country over the bridge to the 21st century to a new politics with the American people back in charge. But if Hillary decides not to bring about the Götterdämmerung, a third party run threat is her whip to beat into submission those that want her to embrace the Kook Left.
Make the Hard Choice Hillary. Give birth to something entirely new and yet entirely old and entirely American. A new birth of freedom.
