Matthews to DWS: What’s the big difference between a Democrat and a socialist?. Debbie Wasserman Schultz could have taken the opportunity to praise capitalism and the economic benefits it has brought to the world, attacked crony capitalism, denounced the folly of government bureaucrats who think they are smarter than regular people, praised the wisdom of markets, and warned that the more power governments have the less of their endowed freedom the people enjoy. It’s sad. That Hillary chose today to praise Obama’s coddling of the Castro brothers makes us very very sad.
“I used to think there was a big difference.”
We still think it is imperative Hillary Clinton become the nominee of the party in 2016. Only she offers even a wisp of a possibility to resurrect some semblance of the Democratic Party of old and the electoral coalition of FDR/JFK/Bill Clinton. Still, it makes us sad that Hillary is living in such a fool’s paradise defending Obama, twisting herself into pretzeled logic contortions trying to appeal to the Obama cult, as Barack Obama prepares to stab her, once again, in the back. It makes us sad.
The Hillary that promised to “obliterate” Iran because she thought clear language was necessary; the Hillary that exposed Barack Obama as a boob is buried deep in a thick shell. Hopefully that Hillary will emerge from her cocoon next summer after the convention. For now we are very sad.
We find it sad that the clear talk has vanished from our entire political class. The American political class offers evasions, tactics, poll driven language and personality along with obfuscation and lies.
It’s sad that Americans need someone outside the political arena to threaten and destroy the political class because the political class has to be destroyed and humbled as a lesson for years to come. In America the people are sovereign. The government serves only with the consent of the governed. The political class are not the people’s masters. The political class are the servants of the servants. Enter Donald J. Trump. Clear English is Donald Trump’s greatest strength.
In 2011 Donald Trump wrote what is now touted as a preliminary blueprint. The name of the book is Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again. Compare and contrast what Trump is saying with the latest bold strategy from the political class as to how to deal with Donald J. Trump:
When Jeb Bush and Donald Trump share a debate stage next week, Bush needs to ignore the real estate mogul at all costs —and if that fails, laugh him off.
That’s the advice given by more than half of the POLITICO Caucus, our weekly, bipartisan survey of the top activists, operatives and strategists in Iowa and New Hampshire.
It’s the smart political play for an ambitious politician. But the notion of not debating ideas with ideas we find destructive, self-defeating, and sad. Very sad.
First we’ll play the immortal Carlos Gardel, Por Una Cabeza. It’s not about horseraces or horses or racetracks. It’s about losing when you thought you would win – By A Head.
You can’t wallow in misery without recalling lost love, past foolishness, and shattered idols. So we’ll engage in some of that too.
Recently, while shopping, we froze as we heard this from the store speakers. It also is about pain and something lost.
You can’t watch a blue moon without “crying”. It’s all about loss.
All light extinguished. It will be back to black.
It’s the blue moon. Like rain on a roof. It’s the blue moon.
The blue moon will be one night. The sun will rise soon enough.
Tomorrow will be August and all things will be new again.
