What Do We Have to Lose?

Oh well. So she lies. So she seems diligent, and successful, in her apparent goal of becoming
a person that can't be trusted. But what the heck. Isn't it about time we had a woman president? Men have gotten all the glory and
all the bonuses of the High Office, higher pay for the same work, and so many benefits in other areas. But they so often screw things
up. Look at all the wars we've fought, the high taxes, the millions of poor people, so let's see how a woman handles it. What have
we got to lose?
Never mind that she will be like a third-term Obama, or that she wants
to heavely tax the wealthy people who paid outrageous sums of money to hear her and her hubby speak to them. Never mind that, as Cal
Thomas said, "We've heard it all before" about her Convention speech, which the New York Times rated "Not well written, not well delivered."
Or what the Clear Politics said, "Clinton is giving the eighth best speech of the Convention."
And maybe the best and most accurate
thing that could be said about her, according to Thomas, was that she has a "thin record of accomplishment".
The Wall Street Journal added, "This November is about whether Americans can look at 40 years of Clinton chicanery and nearly a decade
of broken Obama promises, and pull the lever for her." But all this is beside the point, perhaps. She is a woman. That's all some
liberal women need to know. By God, they say, this is no longer a man's world. We're as good as they are. It's about time, we need
a change, regardless of qualifications. Never mind that her husband called her the best "change maker" he's ever known. What else
would he say? But change is what Obama promised, Mr. Thomas repeats, but failed to deliver. And the president spends much of his time
now deciding how he's going to spend his post-office time, owning a major league sports team, or a high office in some department
of the business world, or as a play-by-play sports announcer. And the man supports her in the run for the White House. And the list
of why she should not be elected goes on and on and is not over yet. The woman does not qualify. She only has these day dreams of
her and her "loving" husband, sitting at the oval office, where Bill spent some interesting moments, being waited on hand and foot,
making "strategic", higher-tax-rate decisions, so that her name will go down as the first woman president and the wife of a prior
president. You can bet that's what she wants. Tune in 4 years from now and see if even the most liberal of liberals can say, "We did
the right thing. Wasn't she great?"
