What stood out in Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambition announcement was her desire to be your champion America. Take it with a tiny grain of salt. Replace the word champion with Queen and you’ll be on to something.
America is desperate for a leader. It already has around 320 million current and yet to be champions, each with the ability to grow, develop, invent and build anything and everything. All they need is freedom from the constraints of over regulation.
Get government out of the way and America is nothing but champions.
Mrs. Clinton’s new identity as champion for the masses is arrogant and unrealistic.
Champions are winners. The title isn’t typically self assigned. It needs to be earned. You don’t get it because you’ve been around for decades or because you stood by your serial cheater spouse.
For the former First Lady power is priority, coronation first then country.
America has fallen into an alarming state of disrepair domestically and internationally. On all counts it is a weaker nation now than in 2008 when an inexperienced upstart swept past the perceived shoe in candidate.
Barack Obama wowed the world with carefully crafted, meaningless rhetoric chosen for sound bite appeal, words designed for the uninformed, the easily led. Eight years after taking office the previously unknown, average at best Senator, will leave America more racially divided and weaker economically and militarily.
Nothing in Hillary Clinton’s resume suggests she has the expertise to re-establish America as a nation to be respected by all and feared by many.
To quote Dr. Charles Krauthammer: “When people talk about Hillary being a superb secretary of state, I just ask one question. Name me one thing, just one, not three, give me one thing she achieved in her four years as secretary of state. I have yet to hear an answer. … She traveled a lot. So did Marco Polo.”
In the debates, Mrs. Clinton will be forced to address her handling of America’s weak responses in global crisis zones. To avoid early focus on a host of US failures like the Russian reset, Libya, Israel, Benghazi and her email server, she’ll do, at most, a limited number of interviews. She’ll choose Clinton friendly media who will handle her with kid gloves while serving up powder puff questions.
Megyn Kelly is out. Katie Couric is in.
Hillary Clinton should be explaining to America how global hot spots became raging infernos on her watch. She can try to shift blame to President Obama but she needs him on the campaign trail. Tough call.
If Mrs. Clinton even has a plan to deal with immigration, will it differ at all from Obama’s let ’em all in, to hell with the consequences policy? No liberal wants to turn away future dependents or, as Democrats call them, supporters.
If successful, will President Hillary Clinton stand up for private property rights? Your income is your private property. It doesn’t automatically belong to the government. A much overdue change in the tax laws and abolishing the IRS would mean new and better ways to fund government, ways that would be much cheaper and easier to enforce, fairer to every American and ultimately lead to much higher employment numbers.
Investment soars when success is rewarded instead of punished. On that point, Clinton loses badly to business savvy, Republican Carly Fiorina, former Hewlett-Packard CEO.
Hillary Clinton is less champion and more sad survivor. She doesn’t have a vision for tomorrow as much as a handful of IOUs wrapped in a bow of entitlement.
The election of 2016 is her final shot at ending the sting of defeat still lingering after nearly eight long years.
