Hillary Clinton is easy to dislike.
She’s just not an honest person. No one likes a person who stretches the truth, distorts the truth, or intentionally tells untruths over and over again.
No one likes a person who lies to try to make herself (on himself) look heroic.
That doesn’t mean they won’t vote for such person. I have no shortage of friends who will vote for Ms. Clinton if she’s the Democratic candidate in spite of the above. They either brush off her love affair with deceit, or divert their attention to evil Republicans who hate women, blacks, gays, the elderly, Hispanics, Muslims, legal immigrants, undocumented workers, or any other label you’d wish to apply.
In their eyes, her sins pale in comparison to the evil that will be perpetrated on the little guy by dastardly Republicans. In other words, what’s a little lie? What’s a little deceit?
We’ve got to get over our love affair with integrity!
That’s how they think. Fair enough.
But I’ve got to say, Hillary Clinton has given me a new reason to be repulsed by her candidacy.
She had an all-woman choir called “Voices From the Heart” sing at a campaign event. They sang an old gospel tune called “Woke Up This Morning (With My Mind on Jesus)” … EXCEPT … they changed Jesus to “Hillary.”
“Woke up this morning with my mind on Hillary.”
My stomach hurt for days over that one.
Or there was this one from the associate editor for the Smith College newspaper, Maggie Mertens:
“I Will Follow Him: Obama As My Personal Jesus. Obama is my homeboy. And I’m not saying that because he’s black – I’m saying that in reference to those Urban Outfitters T-shirts from a couple years ago that said, ‘Jesus is my homeboy.’ Yes, I just said it. Obama is my Jesus.”
Here’s what the Danish newspaper, Politiken said when Mr. Obama had been President for all of 9 months:
“And no we are not thinking of Jesus Christ, whose birthday has just been celebrated – – but rather the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama….
Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus – if we have to play that absurd Christmas game.”
Let’s face it, Democrats have gotten over their love affair with God. You’ll recall that at their last convention, they booed the inclusion of God in their party platform. The party’s elite cynically crammed God into the platform for the sake of politics, not principle.
Their elite know that there are a lot of moderate voters out their who still haven’t gotten over their love affair with God yet, so they played the game to con some of the faithful to pull the big “D” on election day.
Hillary Clinton is playing a dangerous game if she thinks she can pull an Obama and try to fill God’s shoes. She doesn’t enjoy the drooling adoration that Barack Obama has enjoyed.
I really didn’t think I could be more repulsed by Ms. Clinton. I guess I was wrong.
