Now that Election Day is upon us, it might be well to liken it to a heavyweight fight, knowing that we have to measure the strength and weaknesses of the two contenders.
First let’s start with the defending champ, Hillary Clinton. Here we have the veteran contender who has lost only one major fight, that being her battle against President Obama. Her strengths are many but they are more than eclipsed by her weaknesses. First let’s go to her strengths which include many long years in the political arena, a bunch of surrogates who occupy important positions at the State Department, the DOJ, the DNC, most of the Liberal Press, millions of dollars from Wall Street, an ex-President, the current President, the First Lady and “crazy uncle” Joe Biden. She also has a confidante in the person of Donna Brazile, formerly of CNN and current head of the DNC. There probably many other helpers that we will only learn about through Wikileaks.
Now let’s look at her weaknesses. They include a long and checkered career of more defeats than victories. Her most egregious failure was that of leaving four Americans to die in Benghazi and then lying to their surviving family members about the cause of their deaths. Along with the Benghazi-Obama falsification, in which she has been called a congenital, pathological and compulsive liar, she is now being criminally investigated by the FBI on two counts. Since she is an attorney, she likes to parse words and has called the FBI probe a “security review”. Since the FBI is always concerned with criminal activity and not flimsy reviews, she is once again uttering a falsehood. Space does not permit listing the full tally of her misdemeanors but perhaps they have already come to light as this column was written on Friday of last week.
Now to her worthy opponent, Donald Trump. His primary weakness is that he often speaks before thinking. He is also a bombastic neophyte when it comes to political encounter. Unlike Hillary, he has a solid string of KO’s in that he defeated some sixteen primary opponents. All of those contestants had much more experience in the political arena than did Trump. He was able to prevail over them because he had a straightforward message that resonated with many people throughout the land.
In campaigning for Hillary, President Obama has stated that it will be a personal insult to him of she is not elected to carry on his legacy. The voter should be aware that the keystone of that legacy is Obama Care which is currently imploding. Other highlights of his legacy are onerous regulations, more people on food stamps, more people in poverty, crime in the inner cities rampant, a feckless foreign policy, the support of a gentleman named Creamer who was paid by the Clinton camp to disrupt Trump rallies and who visited the White House some 300 times, forty of which he spent in private conversation with Obama himself.
So the choice for support between today’s contestants seems simple: If you want four more years of Obama vote Hillary-If you want a change from Obama policies, vote Trump.
