It’s a time-honored tradition in politics to view those who vote for “the other candidate” and wonder how they could have been dumb enough to fall for all the lies, half-truths, whole untruths and demagoguery.
After George W. Bush was re-elected in 2004, rhetorical questions of “How can 62 million people be so stupid?” rang out like church bells from Kerry supporters at home and abroad. In 1984, Reagan supporters said of Mondale voters, “How can a few dozen people be so stupid?” On and on it goes throughout history.
This is an every election occurrence, but what we usually don’t see is a candidate outwardly implying that their own voters are stupid, which is what I believe Hillary Clinton did recently.
A couple of days ago, Hillary was in Concord, New Hampshire and said the following:
It’s a horrible prospect to ask yourself, “What if? What if?” But if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world.
This one paragraph is loaded with seemingly self-destructive words and, yet, had to be more carefully calculated than a shuttle launch during a meteor shower. The natural instinct of the Republican of course is to zero-in on Hillary’s virtual admittance that a populace frightened by terrorist attacks will feel safer with a Republican, rather than a Democrat, at the helm.
In saying new terror threats would give Republicans the advantage, Hillary was willing to admit that revealing tidbit in order to get to what I’m guessing was the reason she said these words in the first place: To imply to her would-be voters that Republicans would be pleased if there was another terrorist attack – or even somehow might allow an attack in order to win an election.
If there’s another terrorist attack on U.S. soil, Hillary’s implication will be that it was either due to Bush incompetence, or, worse yet, it was allowed to happen so as to put another Republican in office. If there’s not another terrorist attack on U.S. soil before the ’08 election, Hillary’s implication will be that the threat was wildly overstated by Bush and the rest of the Republicans to scare people into voting for them.
The common denominator of all of the above scenarios is, in order to perpetuate and generate votes for Hillary Clinton, they require the assistance of, at the very least, the wildly inattentive, and she knows it.
If it’s common knowledge, as Hillary claims, that Bush mishandled post 9/11 America, what kind of idiot would vote Republican because there was another attack? According to Hillary, enough to elect a Republican to the next presidency.
If an attack was allowed to happen, how many morons would vote for the party that allowed it to happen? Lots, sayeth Rodham-Clinton.
If there is no attack, this will be accounted for by accusations of over-exaggerated threats by Republicans for political purposes, of course culminating in more buffoons voting for the GOP.
Here’s the conundrum though: To believe all of Hillary’s implications requires a certain – I’ll try to be polite – lack of intellectual ability to deal in logic and reality. The types of statements outlined above make it obvious these are the people whose votes Hillary is wooing, while at the same time her words imply that these voters are the reason Republicans would welcome another terrorist attack. Hillary’s simulation has the moron bloc simultaneously voting both Republican and Democrat. Stand back as her house of cards tumbles.
The sad truth is that Hillary Clinton and her ilk adore unknowing voters ? and it’s certainly not because these voters wet themselves in fear and instinctively vote Republican whenever a car backfires.
The fact that the Hillarys of the world want to be in charge of our kids’ schools should give us a Maalox moment of pause. Those who actually expect our children to get a good education from people who feed on the votes of the ill-informed have unfortunately already been victimized by this very reasoning.
If you do the math, you can see why Hillary shouldn’t be in charge. And if you can’t do the math, Hillary just might have earned another voter – terrorist attack or not.
