It's Her Husband, Stupid

She can talk like Elizabeth Warren until she is blue in the face, but a problem still remains. The problem remains her husband, who still peddles the neoliberal, Rubenite, globalist crap that has been discredited and debunked again and again and again. Both Clintons need to call it a day and retire from public life while they still have some health left in them.

Bill's problem has always been his being in bed with people who have helped ruin the country: Alan Greenspan and Robert Rubin. Until he apologizes to the public over his signing of ruinous welfare reform, his signing of ruinous trade agreements, and his signing of the repeal of Glass-Steagall, I don't want to hear one more word from him or his wife.

I don't have a lot of faith the Democrats are going to pick anybody worth a shit for 2016. "Anybody worth a shit" is a candidate who actually IS a Democrat who stands for democracy and traditional Democratic Party beliefs, not some fucking puppet like we have now who is an embarrassment to the party and to the country.

If Hillary gets the nomination, oh, I will probably vote for her, but it won't be with enthusiasm.

Your article smacks of revisionist history. Whatever good happened during the Clinton years, like being the only president over the past 90 years to lower the annual budget deficit each and every year he was in office, should be credited to the republicans?

But then the slew of bills signed near the end of his term, those are all on him even though at least some of them were veto proof.

I am now leaning towards 911 was an inside job with outside assistance simply because it proved to be the perfect distraction so that George Bush II would not have to actually modify any of the Clinton bills that needed modifying.

Now years later, it's convenient to forget that George Bush II really didn't do much to improve on anything that came before him.
