Hillary Clinton is a filthy, stinking liar

So our girl Hillary went out and passionately threw her support behind Barrack Obama.

Her speech was described by one commentator as a "stemwinder," a term that -- coincidentally -- is the one a college friend's Texarkana father once used to describe porn flicks.

Ewwww.

At any rate, it's no wonder Hillary was able to deliver such an effective speech in favor a man she probably hates -- she's a filthy, stinking liar and she's been a convincing one for years. Playing along and simply doing what the party leadership expects is no stretch for that woman.

Even in her "let's love Barrack" speech, she couldn't refrain from lying through her teeth. She declared, for example, that John McCain doesn't believe that 47 million Americans going without health care insurance amounts to a crisis.

That's a bunch of crap and she knows it. Back in 2006, there was a Republican-sponsored bill that would have allowed small businesses and the self-employed to essentially pool together and take advantage of the same group discounts that large corporations enjoy. McCain supported that bill. The Democrats, including dear Hillary, beat the hell out of it in the Senate. Go ahead and look it up.

While you're looking at that story, you might want to take note of the fact that the Democrats also blocked an attempt to cap jury awards in medical malpractice cases. Yes, let's not deprive those poor, mistreated malpractice lawyers like John Edwards of their right to gorge themselves on the medical industry and drive up costs for all of us, huh?

Meanwhile, the Democrats laid back on this "crisis" until this year when both Hillary and Obama made health care reform an issue during an election year.

Some may argue, of course, that the 2006 bill was terribly flawed and that Republicans thwarted the attempts of Democrats to amend the bill and make it better. There may be some truth to that, but it's worth noting that McCain was on board two years ago with a bill based on a similar premise to a Democrat-sponsored one that's floating around Congress right now.

That's right. There's some legislation co-authored by none other than Arkansas' own Democrat Senator Blanche Lincoln that will, if passed, allow small businesses and the self-employed to essentially form pools and take advantage of the same group discounts that large corporations enjoy. This time, fortunately, the new bill has broad support from both parties. Both Republicans and Democrats recognize a problem and are, thankfully, working toward a solution.

So, here's the question. Are the Republicans actually that hostile toward legitimate health care reform or are Democrats like Hillary just playing politics? Was the 2006 bill so flawed that the Democrats just couldn't stand it or did they simply want to reserve that issue for 2008 and declare that "Bush and those mean Republicans don't want you to have health care insurance, but we do!"

Hillary knows damn well that McCain was behind the 2006 bill and the Republicans, as a whole, pushed for capping awards in medical malpractice suits -- two measures that were put together explicitly for the purpose of helping make accessing medical care affordable for Americans. There's a big difference between saying McCain doesn't see 47 million uninsured Americans as a crisis and saying that both parties recognize the problem but may have a difference in opinion on how to solve it.

That's just one example of Hillary playing fast and loose with the truth, but the woman is not to be trusted.

The point? I'm certainly no fan of Obama and dislike McCain only slightly less, but I'd much rather have either one of those two in office than that sleazy Hillary. Thank God the Democrats kicked Hillary to the curb in the primaries.

Let me guess. Not a big fan of the Clintons, eh?

We have a small television on top of the fridge, so I half listened to Hillary's speech tonight while working on the laptop.

Next thing I knew, it was over. I asked my wife, "Is it over?" She replied yes indeed. I then said, "I bet she said about all she could stand to say, and did it through clenched teeth."

I'm not a big fan of John McCain. But this election, I'm using my vote as defense rather than offense. Especially in this age of terror.

Maybe ol' John will get a good Vice Presidential running mate who will not only be an asset this term, but possibly take over the Oval Office after John McCain's one term.

ViN said...

I can't stand the Clintons. 1992, then, was a bittersweet year for me. On one hand, we got them out of Arkansas. On the other, they went to Washington to inflict their wacky views on the entire nation. Remember Bill's sobbing promise in the 1990 election in which he said that if we would vote for him as governor he wouldn't run for president? Guess he forgot that one in a hurry.

Bill and his wife are both a couple of liars. Hillary's just the more prominent one now.

I'm using my vote the same way I have for the past 20 years -- I'm casting it for the candidate that will hurt me the least. That happens to be McCain. Can't say I'm thrilled with that choice, but I'd rather have him around than Barrack "Us vs. Them" Obama.

As for running mates, I'm hearing a lot of talk about Kay Bailey Hutchison. Interesting choice...

izalia:

I'd rather not see what Obama can do, either, and I doubt we'll get a chance. I do believe he's peaked.

Vin:

I doubt that she's that much for Obama. Her campaign treated him like the uppity black man who didn't know his place -- the one who was trying to keep Saint Hillary from her rightful spot in the White House.

Cool animation, by the way.

lala said...

Well, the fact that when Clinton first took the presidency, she was a champion of healthcare for everyone, yet when she became senator, all of a sudden she was taking lobby money from the same healthcare guys she had once fought against really kind of sums it all up nicely (or rather, not so nicely, but summed up nonetheless)

Enjoyed the post. Always like reading your thoughts! Do you really think that Obama has peaked? I can't help but think he will be our next president. I think people are so flattered by what he says that they refuse to actually find out how he plans to to do what he says or that he can't actually do what he says.

I don't agree with Obama on many things and unfortunately, I feel the same about McCain but as you said slightly less. So, based on my views and beliefs I will vote for McCain.

mcangeli said...

Plus the fact that half of those uninsured are illegals anyways....

Its interesting to note that during the DNCC McCain seems to be taking the lead in the polls.

Jessica said...

I was laughing during her entire speech. :)

Mountain Woman said...

Love to read your comments on a political post. There's just not much of a choice this year at a critical time.
I haven't watched the convention at all.

The Natural State Hawg said...

lala -- That does some it up, indeed. Hillary Clinton is driven by self interest and for her to imply otherwise is ridiculous.

Take her proud days with the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock. When the state was pounding on Tyson Foods for violating environmental regs, who was there to defend them and help them keeping dumping chicken waste in Lake Dardanelle?

Why, it was our girl, Hillary!

She's a peach, that one.

hillbilly willy -- For some reason, I just can't stop attacking that woman. The thought of her as president is chilling. She's so self deluded that, during the primaries, she told a crowd up North somewhere that "if you vote for me, all of your dreams will come true!"

I think she's an egomaniac at best and downright iNSaNe at worst.

margie and edna -- Y'all could have a point. Mr. T could convince her to quit being a "lying fool."

I like it!

toni -- Yes, I think he's peaked for a couple of reasons. First of all, that party is still divided and that's a terrible sign. Remember that the Republicans fell apart as the Ford and Reagan factions squared off in 1976 and, in 1980, you had Clinton and Kennedy supporters at each other's throats during the Democratic Convention. The Democrats are talking about unity on the surface, but I'd be willing to bet that a lot of Hillary's supporters are just spiteful enough to vote for McCain.

Second, McCain came across like a rock star during the Democratic primary in that he impressed a lot of Democrats. The rest of the nation is looking harder at him now and you're not seeing the same enthusiasm.

My guess is Obama's popularity started to fall in the public eye about the same time his wide-eyed supporters starting calling him "Barrackman" and declared he was here to save the nation. Gag.

Isn't it sad, by the way, that we don't have two great candidates to choose from? I mean candidates that are so dedicated to the nation -- and not their respective parties -- that we'd feel OK about things regardless of who got in office. I'm sick of this lesser of two evils junk.

McCain all the way. Maybe. Yeah, I'm voting for him, but I can't say I'm thrilled about it.

McAngeli -- I believe McCain has been quietly gaining in support for months.

Jessica -- Half the country was laughing right along with you. Hillary's a funny gal! And I do mean "hah, hah" funny...

Mountain Woman -- You're better off for not watching that convention. There are a lot of better uses for your time -- blogging, sorting a sock drawer, washing the dog...

Da Old Man said...

Hillary is a modern day carpetbagger. Plain and simple.

Obama is the Messiah, didn't you get the memo?
We really need to decide on a font for sarcasm.

The Natural State Hawg said...

da old man:

That's a hell of an idea -- a sarcasm font. Something bold and dripping ought to do it, yeah?

I think Hillary has taken carpetbagging to a whole new level. "You know, New York's a nice state. I think I'll run for the Senate there!"

I'm well aware that Osama is the Messiah. I was watching him, you know, like, on the TV when he was, umm, giving a speech, right? And he looked right at me! I could feel his steely, confident gaze beaming right through the TV screen and that's when I, The Hawg, became a believer.

Yuck!

I know so many people who say they "just don't like Hillary" but can't come up with a good reason.

I shall send them the link to this post.

Well done!

JD:

Thanks! Remember, I'm an Arkansan -- I've got plenty of reasons to dislike Hillary.

Don't care much for her husband, either...
