Catch up on the latest news over lunch . . .
travel1: OBAMA, BIDEN and HILLARY are rather insulting to the American public, truly speaking to them like they are idiots, getting cheap applause off of one-liners at a child psychology level, while conveniently slipping in excuses here and there to fit the moment...... Biden: "They're going to put y'all back in chains." Does Biden really view African Americans as being that stupid to believe that? Obama: "(Trump) is just offering slogans and offering fear." No reason whatsoever for Americans to be concerned about anything at all. Except for a "one-man wrecking crew" who embraces "dictators" (and remember - "refrigerators and air conditioners" are just as dangerous as ISIS, according to Democrat John Kerry). Hillary: "(Trump) wants to divide us from the rest of the world, and from each other. He wants us to fear the future and fear each other." And they're accusing TRUMP of scare tactics? Hillary: "America is already great. America is already strong." "Americans don't say, 'I alone can fix it.' We say, 'We'll fix it together.' " Gee, those don't sound one bit like slogans. Hillary: "Too many people haven't had a pay raise since the crash. There's too much inequality. Too little social mobility. Too much paralysis in Washington. Too many threats at home and abroad. But just look for a minute at the strengths we bring as Americans to meet these challenges." No, not "we", Hillary. "We" can do nothing about most of these things, especially "threats at home and abroad". What are YOU going to do about it? "We'll fix it together." That continuing "we" theme sounds so heartwarming, doesn't it? And so realistic. Hillary: "But just look for a minute at the strengths we bring as Americans to meet these challenges. We will build an economy where everyone who wants a good job can get one." Wow! Everyone?! But wait. Won't that put people that work at the unemployment office out of work? Hillary: "The family I'm from, well, no one had their name on big buildings (meaning Trump)." Is Hillary implying that reaching this level of success is bad for Americans? Didn't she say that "everyone who wants a good job can get one"? Later... "In America, if you can dream it, you should be able to build it." Kind of contradicts her remark about having your name on a big building, doesn't it? Biden: "Folks, the American people are with us. I know it doesn't feel that way, but I'm telling you, I'm telling you the American people agree with us." Is that an attempt at a subliminal message? Hillary: "Democrats, we are the party of working people." How patriotic. Does that mean if you're a republican you have no chance to find work? Obama: "We delivered justice to Osama bin Laden." Now THAT terrorist needed to be dealt with. These current ones we just need to learn to cooperate with. Hillary at the DNC 2016: "A president should respect the men and women who risk their lives to serve our country." Hillary in 2013: "The fact is we had four dead Americans. ... What difference at this point does it make?" Hillary: "And in the end, it comes down to what Donald Trump doesn't get: that America is great – because America is good." (There are those slogans again) A few sentences later... "I know that at a time when so much seems to be pulling us apart, it can be hard to imagine how we'll ever pull together." So which is it? Aren't these the same "dark" realities you accused Trump of speaking about? Obama: "We're not going to make good decisions based on fears that don't have a basis in fact." Yet ANOTHER terror attack occurred the same day he said this. Obama: "If a jayvee team... (referring to ISIS)" Varsity games (the main attraction) almost always follow the JV games. Does that mean things are going to get a lot worse? Obama: "(Hillary) knows that’s what happens when you’re under a microscope for 40 years (crime accusations)." Well then. That immediately disqualifies her from being guilty of breaking the law. Richard Nixon had only been in politics for about 30 years prior to the Watergate scandal. Had he had an extra 10 years on him in his profession, surely he would have been innocent. Biden: "No major party nominee in the history of this nation (Trump) has ever been less prepared to deal with our national security." This was said just one day after Clinton's top campaign spokesman acknowledged that her e-mails are a "national security issue". Obama: "Now, I know Hillary Clinton is not flawless; no candidate is." "There are times when I disagree with Hillary... But whatever our disagreements may be, I’ve come here to say: We must put them aside for the good of our country." (Sniffle...Sniffle) Everybody makes mistakes and should be forgiven. Except for candidates of the opposing party, of course. Various Obama quotes (beginning with the 2016 DNC): "As I've traveled this country, through all 50 states, as I've rejoiced with you and mourned with you..." “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.” "It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person." "But I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking." Boy, that Donald Trump and his arrogance. Oh, wait a minute. Obama? That's different then. So glad he reminds us about all he's done for us. He must really care. Obama: "This year, in this election, I’m asking you to join me – to reject cynicism, reject fear." "And that's why I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman - not me, not Bill, nobody - more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America." NEVER? Wow. So that was a mistake for Obama to get the nomination in 2008 instead of her? Well, I guess since there are no reasons for Americans to be concerned about anything, I'd say Hillary is WAY overqualified to be president of the United States.
