For thee but not for me.
Listen To You Tell Me Texas Friday 3/13/15
A normal person might ask,
“If you’re thinking about running for president, and if you know that you are already heavily laden with baggage, and if you know your opposition will almost literally look under ever pebble on the beach for any kind of ‘gotcha’ they can find, why on Earth would you serve up a big one by behaving in such a way as to be certain that it looks like you’re trying to hide something?”
We are, of course, speaking of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the answer to the question is, “Hillary is about as far as you can get from a normal person and still be in this solar system.”
My first up close experience with Hillary Clinton occurred in the nether regions of what was then called the Fleet Center in Boston, home of the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
Radio Row had been set up in an area that also happened to comprise the secure pathway into and out of the building for Democrat big wigs.
Hillary had just given an interview to one of the radio stations on Radio Row and, judging from the flames shooting out of her ears and nostrils when it was over, it did not go well. Mrs. Clinton pulled her assistant off to the side, where she imagined nobody was watching, and brought down upon that poor young woman the very Hammers of Hell.
I don’t know what made Mrs. Clinton mad. Evidently the interviewer had dared to ask something that she did not wish to be asked. (When it comes to the Clintons, that would consist of a very long list of topics.)
But what did Hillary think was going to happen? It was Radio Row – and not ‘Today’s Hottest Hits Together With Yesterday’s Favorites” – but talk radio. As a species, talk radio hosts live to ask people like Hillary Clinton tough questions.
That she was nevertheless so taken aback made clear that Hillary Clinton thinks she is somehow exempt. You have no right to ask. Rules and conventions apply only to ‘little people.”
Hillary Clinton is the very embodiment of the nouveau ‘ruling class’ that is taking over government at every level. Her email was on a server that she owned and controlled – rather than on the State Department system – for one reason and for one reason only: to avoid to the greatest extent possible having to ever answer inconvenient questions.
She was astonishingly open about it. The domain was very clearly @clintonemail rather than @state.gov and thus obviously not a government system. But she didn’t care. The rules don’t apply if your last name is Clinton and Hillary knows that.
Thus we can know that if Hillary Clinton is ever elected president, she will not see herself as our elected servant. She, to a frightening and astonishing degree, will look down upon us as mere vassals.
Not – by a long shot – what the founders had in mind.
