    Stay home or vote McCain options = no Democrat in White House.

    Bye bye end of war
    bye bye woman's right to choose
    bye bye middle class tax cuts
    bye bye green energy.

    But: Hillary is evil and corporate.

    Repubs rock!

        She is funded - to the hilt - by defense contractors

        She is best buds with Billy Tauzin, the head lobbyist of PhRma.  Her health care plan is a joke.  She's phonier than Mitt Romney.   She will make Pelosi-esque efforts towards being a progressive, but ultimately cave and capitulate on anything that isn't personal about her and Bill.  She will pass a few child-friendly, SCHIP-esque health care measures and claim that she's doing God's work.  

        Basically, I see her tenure turning out exactly like Rod Blagojevich in Illinois.

        Not exactly - evil corporate - more, just plain tone-deaf incompetent.

          Unless you're an Edwards person, you have some issues, since Obama is "funded" by some unsavory people as well...and has hung out with some of them too.

          If I were using that basis to decide on a candidate, I probably wouldn't want to vote for anyone either.

          However...

          She's phonier than Mitt Romney.

          I think this is the silliest line in the entire rant. Going back to when Bill Clinton was in office, I'm trying to figure out how she was different then from when she was in the Senate to how she is in this campaign.

          If she was "as phony as Mitt," you should be able to come up with as many flip-flops, etc. as people have with him.  But you can't.

          She will make Pelosi-esque efforts towards being a progressive, but ultimately cave and capitulate on anything that isn't personal about her and Bill.

          So how do you cave and capitulate when you're in charge, and your party is in charge of Congress?  Who, exactly, would she capitulate to?

          Or is any compromise at any level now considered "capitulation?"  And if so, then Obama will clearly do it too, as will Edwards.

          •  Obama doesn't take PAC or Lobbyist money (0+ / 0-)

            Obama is not funded by "unsavory" people, unless you think that individual employees of companies are "unsavory" in which case, you have a problem since most of us work for companies.  

            Hillary Clinton is ridiculously phony.  Listen to her answer in the debate about her "greatest weakness."   Listen to her describe her "mortgage rate freeze" plan - does she ever level with the American people and tell them that if you are a current homeowner with a mortgage, and you've been playing by the rules, you get screwed?   Your home equity - which is the primary source of wealth for the middle class - will decline?   Does she acknowledge that she's simply pandering to real estate speculators and investors who tried to play the market (and lost) at the expense of ordinary, working-class homeowners who simply wanted a house for their kids?

            No?  Can you point to a single business analysis of the effect of her mortgage-rate freeze plan that does not think that it will collapse the housing market?  

            No?   No shit.  Of course she won't admit that her plan will fuck every one of us over who has a house and pays on a fixed mortgage.  

            Same as of course she won't admit that she has no plan to fix the actuarial (but real) deficit in Social Security.

            Same as of course she won't admit that in order to realize "universal" health care she is going to force people to pay for health insurance when they can't afford it.  

            Same as of course she won't admit that it might be her campaign plan to withdraw troops from Iraq, but when her generals come back and say the surge needs six more months, she's going to say, well, that was my plan then, now my plan is to stay indefinitely.

      Period.

    •  Hillary will end the War? (0+ / 0-)

      I hope so.  It does seem to be her trajectory though.
