Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton seems to be having a demographics problem with white, non-college educated men. Nancy Pelosi in an interview, says Hillary has problems with them due to the “three G’s: Guns, Gays and God. Meaning the woman’s right to choose”. How did this woman ever get elected to office? Oh yes, California and she is a DEMOCRAT. When asked how would Hillary overcome this hurdle, Pelosi replied, “with good jobs, higher paying jobs, more economic growth”. I seem to recall when running for Senator of New York, Hillary promised 200,000 jobs for upstate NY. They never materialized. She now expects us to believe she will do it nationwide? But the Dems, oh the Dems believe in Obama’s third term; 1.9% GDP growth and the whole nine yards. Obama has not broken 3% GDP growth his entire 8 years! That is a disgrace if you do not already know.
White uneducated men does not account for the polls. The Real Clear Politics has Trump a full 1.1 point ahead of her. Some polls have him 7 points ahead, as in the L.A. Times. Hillary will not easily get her turn, her ‘coronation’. She had to fight Bernie and she’s got a for real fight in Trump. He’s already gotten under her skin. Thus far, Trump has been mentioned 332 times. The entirety of the Republican Convention, Hillary was mentioned 203 times. And at the time of this writing, they still had one night left. So the magical thinking tinfoil hat variety are worried.
Where is the patriotism? The first night there were no flags, except the ones being burned outside. When Kaine exclaimed “Semper Fi”, no one applauded because no military presence was in the hall. Then there was a small applause. This man’s son is serving right now. That should be an insult to that man. But y’all know the Dems and their magical thinking. There were no uniformed officers on the floor on the Convention. Philadelphia will be glad to see the back of the Dems leave, in my opinion. The Fraternal Order of Police chapter in Philly actually wrote an open letter of complaint! The protests outside were much worse than anything in Cleveland. One guy set himself on fire last night.
When this is all over and done with, politics will never be the same, because Trump is a genius! He uttered words “To Russia” with love and nobody is talking about the first woman anything. The American Pulitzer Prize winning syndicated columnist Dr. Charles Krauthammer so cleverly points out, “these are the e-mails that she deleted because they were supposedly private. These are ones that were supposedly not work related. These are ones where she discusses her yoga lessons and wedding planning. So if that’s what really is in the 30,000 deleted e-mails, then there’s no national security to be involved at all.” Once again Trump changed the narrative and the news cycle.
Donald Trump held six new conferences yesterday and totally stole the Dems thunder. He took questions and gave an interview with Fox. To wit he had no idea about the Russia flap. But, would it not be to our benefit to have relations with Putin? In the stead of a contentious relationship, we have a friendly one. And think of it, it makes sense- they say the Russians hacked the Dems. The Dems were warned of malicious intruders. Debbie Wasserman-Shultz ignored that and it got her fired on the eve of the convention. How scandalous is that? How easy would it be for the Russians to hack HRC’s unsecured server in the basement? Or a North Korea, or a China, or an anyone friend or foe. So they very well may have those deleted emails. It is their jobs, there are guys sitting in a room in Russia probing all our government systems. That is what they do.
If they are as entertaining and damaging as the DNC emails, I cannot wait.
