The only thing bitter is Clinton

I’ve been holding off on a presidential candidate choice for a while… just sitting on the side lines observing… but several things have happened of late.

First, there is the mess over the Florida and Michigan primaries. Hil wants those delegates counted because she needs them. I’m sorry Hil, FL and MI fucked up. Everyone, including you, must live with the results (good and bad). Second, there’s the Bosnia sniper fire story that turned out to be complete bull shit. Hil says she “mis-spoke.” I believe the correct term is ‘LIED’. Not one to learn from her mistakes, she quickly followed this up with the pregnant woman health care story. More mis-spokes (lies).

Now we have the Obama ‘bitter’ controversy. While some people are seem to be offended by this — which oddly appears to be politicians and pundits more than anyone else — I support his statement…

“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.”

“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Its not a slap in the face of anyone. He’s stating a natural reaction to a situation. Its the rare individual who doesn’t seek to shift his/her frustrations on to something/someone else and to take comfort in what they can. That’s us. Period.

But, not in Hil’s camp. Its elitist. And just how do you make that leap?

It’s been said that the only way Hil can win is to win ugly. I agree, except that I don’t think she has a chance of winning. I also think the longer she stays in this race the uglier its going to get and better the chance she’s will offer the elephants with Mc.

Speaking of Mc,  I still think his choice of running mate’s is going to be the key to his chances.  If he is stupid enough to choose Huckleberry Hound, he’s doomed.  If he chooses Mitt, he’s doomed.  He needs someone young. Someone who can whisper in his ear when he forgets what the hell is going on in the world.

Now if you haven’t figured it out, I’m voting for Obama.
