While it’s true that Hillary Clinton, if she had any love for our country, would take herself off the ticket to avoid the turmoil her potential election would bring about, no one, and I mean, NO ONE expects she will do that. Democrats are more than willing to pretend that her actions are just misunderstood. Hah! Nixon has been pilloried for years as a corrupt President, yet he resigned when Republicans told him he had to. It’s a shame that there are NO Democrats who will admit Hillary is corrupt and tell her to resign!
After all, her history has been tarnished with a complete disregard for honesty and integrity as well as a multitude of scandals which never deterred her or Bill from forging ahead with their own, self-serving interests. They have used the power of office and political connections to remedy situations and problems which others would be imprisoned for. Everyone who follows the news knows about her scandalous behaviour….yet, Democrats refuse to disavow her because it serves their interests to keep her in power.
This election has exposed more of the subterfuge and double-dealing in Washington than any other election in our memory. There are too many willing to excuse Hillary’s illegalities because it is easier to ignore them. Or, they complain that the issues are too complicated. Or, they pretend that the charges are part of a conspiracy. Or, more often than not, they enjoy the future leverage if they let her get away with those crimes.
It reminds me of the story in Don Quijote about the blind man who eats more of the grapes than he and his servant boy agreed to. Upon seeing this, the boy eats more, too. When the grapes are gone, the blind man accuses the boy of taking more than his share. The boy is surprised and asks how the blind man knew the boy was “double-dipping”.
The blind man says, “Because, you did NOT complain when I took more than MY share”.
Democrats don’t care if Hillary takes more than her “fair” share so long as they can continue to aggrandize or enrich themselves, too. And, that’s why she will never be asked to step down.
