For those who were able to stomach watching it, last night was ‘Slick Willy’s’ time to shine at the Democrat convention by doing a little bragging on his ‘wife’. And it’s this morning that he seems to be gathering some rather mixed reviews. Old Slick delivered a speech that, besides being more than a little too long, has also been described by some as being more than a bit rambling. And according to some if the point of the speech was to fire up the crowd, despite his reputation as being a great orator, it failed to live up to expectations.
’Slick’ did his best to appear fulsome in his praise of Hitlery, but there was something yuge, that was missing from the speech. ‘Slick’ described Hitlery as the “best darn change-maker” he’d ever met and recounted how he tried three times to get her to marry him. All in a speech designed, I guess, to use his popularity to somehow ingratiate his wife to those folks who can’t stand her. He attempted to do so by taking the crowd on a rather weird little journey through the years of their relationship starting in 1971 when he met the girl with big blonde hair and glasses.
There were the years between 1993 and 2001 when he and Hillary made the White House their home. There was 1997, when daughter Chelsea went off to college, and then, just like that, as if by magic we were suddenly transported to 1999. But there was one year missing. A year that it’s probably best not to bring up especially when you’re trying to sell your audience a story of your happy marriage. In all of ‘Slick’s’ speech, 1998 was completely absent. But why? Was there nothing of significance that took place in the life of these people?
After all, it was during 1998 that we were witness to a number of rather notable events, such as the New York Yankees ending their season with 125 total victories, the most by any team in 123 years of Major League baseball. But for the Clintons, it was also their “annus horribilis”. Because it was in January of that year when website the Drudge Report revealed allegations that White House intern Monica Lewinsky had sex with the then President ‘Slick Willy’. Later the same month, ‘Slick’ made the now famous denial: “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”.
It would take until August 1998, and the discovery of Lewinsky’s blue dress replete with his DNA, for ‘Slick’ to finally admit that yes he had indeed had what was then termed as being an “improper physical relationship” with an intern young enough to be his daughter. It was a scandal that would lead to ‘Slick’ becoming only the second US President to be impeached and charged with a crime, although he would later be found not guilty of obstructing justice and perjury. No wonder, in his speech, Clinton decided to “fast-forward”, from 1997 to 1999.
Slick gave what as a rather long-winded recitation of I’m sure he sees as being his wife Hitlery’s impressive resume. And to hear him talk you’d think that Hitlery was some sort of a ‘Superwoman’ who singlehandedly rescues literally thousands of women and children. His speech was supposed to start at 10 PM but, perhaps because of some walker issues, he was a few minutes late getting started. By 10:30, which is what time I finally threw in the towel, he was only up to1982 in his meandering little fairytale. I saw very little point in listening any further.
It was amid the meandering autobiography that Slick offered a few attempts to justify his wife on policy. He said, “She put climate change at the center of our foreign policy.” I can only assume that he apparently thinks that was a good thing. He said that there are two Hitlerys: “One is real and the other is made up. You just have to decide which one is which, my fellow Americans.” He said, “The real one calls you when you’re sick, when your kid’s in trouble, or when there’s a death in the family….earlier today, you nominated the real one.”
‘Slick’ also defended his wife’s carpetbagging in winning the 2000 New York Senate election. He said, “We’d always intended to go to New York [after he left office]…so she decided to give it a try.” And he went on to say, “After a tough battle New York elected her to the seat once held by another outsider, Robert Kennedy.” Perhaps he considers “outsider” another term for “carpetbagger.” ‘Slick’ said, “Speeches like this are fun,” before finally signing off shortly before 11 PM. But fun for whom. After reading most of the reviews this morning, I’m glad I went to bed.
I guess if the purpose of the speech was to, as best as he could, sugarcoat Hitlery’s ‘career in public service’ by leaving out entirely any mention of her real record, then I guess you could say that it was a good speech. But to be honest, there is virtually no place on God's green earth that is better off today because of anything that she has done. There are 100s of thousands of innocent people who are dead today because of her and Barry. Libya, Iraq, Africa, Russia, Asia, Iran, and countless other places that are far worse off today because of her.
This speech was, for the most part, completely fact free, quite ridiculous and totally boring. But then as we all know, facts aren’t exactly something that Democrats like to delve too far into, or discuss too far in depth, because the facts rarely, if ever, actually support any of their positions. ‘Slick Willy’ must have been on oxycodone or some such medication because as much as I despise him, he is usually very good when he gets in front of a microphone. And what I did hear of it was rambling and for the most part was pretty much incoherent.
There is a time for a woman president, just like there was a time for a first black president, unfortunately America has found out the hard way what it's like to vote for someone simply because of outward appearance, now we have a woman who is nowhere near worthy of the honor to be elected as our president. America can do so so much better, but that will be some time in the future. Definitely not now, Hitlery, I fear, would be even worse than Barry. The bottom line here is that America simply can't survive another Democrat as president, male or female.
