I swear to G-d!!! If any of these men (or Hillary) becomes president I am going to have to seriously consider prescription drugs. Paris, I mean, Anderson Cooper asks for a show of hands "Who took a private jet here tonight?" I knew, knew, knew that someone would not raise their hand and say they didn't do so because "they arrived last night." HA! So funny I forgot to laugh. Yes, it's really funny to lie like Bill Clinton isn't it? It's all just a big joke, right?
So they let people from YouTube (after some censoring) ask the candidates question. Naturally, you had some, shall we say, unorthodox questions and questioners. That doesn't bother me. It was to be expected. What does bother me is the fact that these people actually asked better questions than Chris Matthews when he's having a good day.
But what does it matter? It's not like these guys are debating the future. Best question of the night (whether he meant the double meaning or not): "Can you as politicians ... actually answer questions rather than beat around the bush?" They all lied and said "yes" but the answer was really "no." No, they're running against George W. Bush, whether it's Iraq, Katrina (don't get me started on that one) or...well, I guess that's it. The economy is dynamite. Anyway, how about a candidate that says "I don't think we should have gone to Iraq, but we did, and now we have to find a way to finish what we started." Nope, we're told by these geniuses that we shouldn't have invaded Iraq and now we need to leave Iraq and pretend it never happened. Hey, what's another Cambodia amongst friends, right? Hell, after we leave Iraq we can send Noam Chomsky over there to assure the world that utopia is at hand. Take that Michael Yon!!
See? The classics never die.
This group of "Democrats," "Liberals," "Progressives," or whatever Orwellian name they want to label themselves, are very, very dangerous. Now, despite my mood at this moment, I'm not prepared to say that if one of them is elected, our country is wrecked. Admit it, many of us thought this to be the case when Bill Clinton was elected, and indeed, his presidency was very damaging, but it goes to show you the amazing strength and resilience of the United States of America that it is able to survive anything thrown at it, whether it's Nazism or Leninism from overseas or the utter incompetence of a Jimmy Carter right in the seat of power.
America is the greatest country in history and it achieves greatness when it is left to its own devices. Every. Single. Democrat. Candidate. wants to stand in America's way.
Don't let them.
