According to Bloomberg online, Hilary Clinton is now the most popular politician in the US. Two thirds of the country have a favorable view of her, while one third thinks that we would have been better off with her as president. While I’m pretty sure a lobotomized amoeba would be a better president, I’m not sure we’d be in much better shape with Ms. Clinton.
Our foreign policy is in shambles. Our reputation around the globe is in the sewer. She runs from place to place like a gerbil on a wheel trying to put out the fires her boss sets and then when things don’t blow up, calls it a success. I realize it’s a difficult job but the poor woman looks like she’s aged eighty years. I’m reasonably sure she’s not physically up to the job.
Let us remember:
The entire idea behind the Clinton health care plan was that government knew best — better than businesses, better than doctors, and better than patients.The Clinton plan would have required every business in America to provide health care coverage to its employees, regardless of cost. The mandate would have devastated small businesses and cost thousands of jobs. -Michael D Tanner, CATO institute,
As with the Obama plan you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to but every business had to provide health care. That’s just not possible and it comes from people who have no earthly idea how difficult it is to run a business. They’ve never had to make payroll, pay taxes, benefits and try to eke a profit. The Obama plan goes one step further. Every one must purchase heath care and at 12,000+ a year, that comes to a little under 1,100 dollars a month (about 200 dollars more than my mortgage and just about 2/3 of the money I brought home when I was still employed). If I were single I’d probably have to have a second or third job just to pay for health care.
So unless Hilary has seen the error of her plan, I’m thinking she is NOT the way to go in 2012. Not if we don’t want the Daughter, of the Son of Jimma’ Carter. What a horror film that would be.
