What a speech by Bubba! After more than ten years of practice and tens of millions of dollars in honorariums, the man has evolved into one heck of a speaker.
To his credit, he put it all on the line in keeping his side of his grand bargain with Barack Obama: “I’ll support your reelection if you promise to give Hillary your full support in 2016.”
Good deal? I don’t think so. Personally, I believe his quid-pro-quo arrangement with the Dean of Duplicity showed more of that legendary Clinton bad judgment instead.
- If Obama loses to Romney, and if Romney does even a slight about face when it comes to BHO’s socialist policies, the economy should sharply rebound in the short term. (Emphasize, short term — not long term.) If the artificial prosperity of voters could be prolonged through the 2016 elections, Hillary — or any other Democrat — would have virtually no chance of winning.
- On the other hand, if Obama beats Romney, there’s a 100 percent chance that the U.S. will be in a Greater Depression by 2016. Meaning that any Democratic presidential candidate would lose in a landslide. And that would put a damper on Bubba’s influence, which, in turn, would rub off on Hillary.
- But the worst possibility of all is if Obama wins, then succeeds in finishing off the job of totally collapsing the U.S. economy, followed by declaring a phony state of emergency to postpone the 2016 elections. Sorry about that, Hillary.
So I think there’s a good chance that Bubba damaged his reputation Wednesday night for nothing. That aside, however, I believe that an alien from another galaxy would find it amazing that on Wednesday night the Democrats wildly cheered a man whose most memorable presidential quotes are “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” “That depends upon what the meaning of is is,” and, of course, his simple directive to Paula Jones to “kiss it.”
And you wonder why they say this is a great country?
Also, with regard to damaging his reputation, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Bubba was determined to convince us that we are better off today than we were four years ago — that forty-three straight months of unemployment above 8 percent and an increase of $5.4 trillion in the national debt clearly demonstrate that Der Fuhrbama is moving us in the right direction.
I understand that the new intellectual star of the Democratic Party, that frumpy, flukey Fluke gal, was so impressed by Bubba’s remarks that she was out-and-out swooning over him. Uh, oh … move over, Monica, it’s a whole new generation.
