Why I Can't Stand Hillary and Will Never Vote For Her

Hillary is a bane to American political culture.

Even outside of her time in the White House, her record is twice as long as Obama's; she's been a senator for eight years to Obama's four. But the more I look at what she's done and how she's voted, the less I like her. Like Obama, she is a fan of humongous government. She's consistently to the left on every issue, immigration, taxation, the war, healthcare reform, everything. She strikes me as being almost socialist.

Then there's Hillary the Human Being. I am so put off by her shrillness and rage. The graceless way she's handling the growing threat from Obama shows how savage she is. George Will (who is a great writer and smart and funny as hell) wrote a scathing article about the unbelievable depths of the Clinton arrogance here.

Hillary is an attack dog and I think she's dirty and sadly unprosecutable. The Riady scandal, the 500 FBI Files that landed in the White House reading room for no apparent reason, and of course, Whitewater, seem to have just floated off of her. The idea of this dangerous, sneaky, vindictive woman becoming the Leader of the Free World scares the hell out of me.

In all seriousness, have you considered changing your party affiliation to Republican? I get the impression (please correct me if I'm wrong) that you are a conservative on many issues. Perhaps the GOP is a better fit?

LNM, wait until you read my post on McCain. ;)

Yes, of course, I have been considering changing my party affiliation for years now. As I said in other posts, I have highly Conservative values (with a few exceptions...like I am pro-choice), but I am also at odds with some of the preferences of the Republican party. For example, its connection to Evangelists and the Religious Right scares the hell out of me. But I have been thinking about it.

Did you watch the debates last night? Specifically the part where she was flipping out becuase they asked her a question first? What the heck was that? It was so, I don't know...immature and petty? She's like someone on a message board who is losing an argument and starts picking on their opponents spelling and grammar becuase they got nothing left in their bag o' tricks.

I'm not going to hide the fact that I'm an Obama fan. :) Jewish Atheist has an interesting Obama post up Here

As I said, I like Obama as a person. But, number one, I can't vote for a candidate without a record and his is too skimpy. And number two, whatever little record he has shows him as being consistently to the left of every single issue. The Jewish Athiest post talked about Obama's substance, but in a non-substantive, descriptive way...give me some specifics to sink my teeth into. Honestly, what impact has he made on this country? Did anyone even know who he was before he spoke at the convention? I looked at his voting record and his bills, and he strikes me as two things: left and left. Why would I vote for a mega-Liberal? The only small hope that I'm harboring is that if he is elected, he will grow into his position.

Good post!

I think there were 900 FBI files, not 500. And don't forget about Hillary's hugging of Sufa Arafat as well as her own history of funneling "charity" money to Hamas front groups during the 1980s.

I wonder when or if she will release her tax forms?
