SOUTH FLORIDA, January 30, 2014—To paraphrase President Ronald Reagan, “there they go again.”
Five years ago liberal Americans socially promoted an unqualified black man to the presidency to atone for past racism. Now these same individuals determined to create one giant collective are socially promoting unqualified women to high political positions to make up for past sexism .
The fact that discrimination existed is a stain on America’s history. To give minorities of all stripes more access to opportunities is a positive remedy. To give them equal outcomes is an affront to everything that makes America great. America at its best is a meritocracy, and the left remains obsessed with advancing minorities who are at best unqualified and at worst lacking in basic human decency.
Hillary Clinton is a prime example of a political souffle. Her resume is pure air. She is the inevitable Democratic nominee despite her entire life’s accomplishments being vastly overstated. Her positive results are more airbrushed than the Angeline billboards on the highway.
In 2008 she claimed to have “35 years of experience.” She graduated law school at age 25 and ran for president at 60. What she had was 35 years of living as an adult. This reflected her mere being, not her actually doing anything.
Barack Obama vaulted to the White House without ever having held meaningful employment. He was a community organizer and then a very lightly regarded adjunct professor. As for Hillary, her work at the Rose Law firm was undistinguished. Everything she achieved was due to her husband Bill Clinton being Governor of Arkansas. Liberals hold her up as a champion of feminism when all she did was ride her husband’s coattails and clean up his messes.
She was handed the job of Secretary of State for the same reason Teddy Roosevelt was made Vice President: to get her out of the way. She is praised for racking up frequent flier miles, but her tenure did not have a single notable positive accomplishment. George Mitchell brought peace to Northern Ireland. Hillary got people killed in Benghazi and when caught trying to cover up the truth, screamed, “What difference at this point does it make?”
Like Obama, Hillary mixes a lack of real accomplishments with a meanness of spirit. She confuses political opponents with enemies. While Hillary will not be inflicting her grating self on the American people until the 2016 election heats up, Wendy Davis is attempting to become Governor of Texas in 2014.
Davis led a lengthy filibuster against a pro-life abortion bill in the Texas legislature. This naturally made her a hero to liberals everywhere, especial liberal women. The only thing politically liberal women care about is a pro-choice abortion position. Everything else is irrelevant, as evidenced by the visceral hatred and abuse liberals heap on real pro-life feminists like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.
Like Hillary, Davis is a very flawed heroine. She claimed to have become an unwed mother at age 19 rather than 21. She claimed to have lived in a trailer park, although much of her existence was fairly middle-class. She would not be the first politician to embellish her resume, since hard-scrabble tales still sell. The lily-white Elizabeth “Fauxcahantas” Warren lowered the bar considerably by claiming that she was 1/16 Cherokee Indian to take advantage of affirmative action laws.
Davis’s behavior is more serious. It seems this woman who claimed to be self-made had her husband pay for her advanced education. The day after he made the final loan payment, she abandoned him and the children. There is no putting lipstick on this situational pig. Only a viper would do this. There is a word for a woman who sleeps with a man for money and then discards him when he is no longer needed.
Davis’s tone-deafness caused her to blame the criticism on her Republican opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott. She claimed that he had no idea what it was like to walk in her shoes. He cannot walk at all. He is wheelchair-bound, yet succeeds in life without the carping and complaining of Davis.
Liberal women in America seem hell-bent on making the same mistake that was made regarding Obama. Any woman will do, no matter how awful. This warped thinking is an affront to the plethora of talented minorities in America, even on the liberal side of the political spectrum.
There are liberal women in America with actual accomplishments. Many of these women live honorably and treat their fellow Americans with dignity and respect. Surely liberals can do better than presidential candidate Sandra Fluke (who turns the required age 35 in April of 2016) and her 35 years of perpetual complaining on behalf of other perpetual complainers.
If Hillary Clinton, Wendy Davis and Sandra Fluke are the best symbols the Democratic Party can come up with, then the donkeys will have finally admitted what Republicans have known for a long time. Democrats care only about filling quotas regardless of how destructive the results. The phony war on women is being led by an ideologues determined to wage a war against merit, especially among their own.
For those who care about actual results delivered by people of integrity rather than fake (hot) flashes of femininity, the Democratic Party of Hillary Clinton, Wendy Davis, John Edwards and Al Gore has nowhere to go but up in choosing their future rising stars.
