Why I just cannot support Hillary
Here’s an email my dad sent to a bunch of friends and family the other day:
In a news conference Deanna Favre announced she will be the starting QB for the Packers this coming Sunday. Deanna asserts that she is qualified to be starting QB because she has spent the past 16 years married to Brett while he played QB for the Packers. During this period of time she became familiar with the definition of a corner blitz, and is now completely comfortable with other terminology of the Packers offense. A survey of Packers fans shows that 50% of those polled supported the move.
Does this sounds idiotic and unbelievable to you? Well, Hillary Clinton makes the same claims as to why she is qualified to be President and 50% of democrats polled agreed. She has never run a City, County, or State. When told Hillary Clinton has experience because she has 8 years in the white house, Dick Morris stated “so has the pastry chef”.
Yes, this is a viral email, but I checked an Morris did actually make the pastry chef comment. You might find some of this misogynistic, but there’s a key point in the humor of this. Hillary’s running on a record that isn’t hers. Just because her husband had some achievements as our president doesn’t meant that they automatically become her by osmosis. So, what has she done as NY’s junior Senator. Good question. I have to think long and hard to find some benefit her being senator has produced for my state. To date, nothing has come to mind. She’s been a carpetbagger, using our state as a stepping stone to get to the White House. I didn’t elect her for senator, and hopefully won’t have to find her name on a ballet anytime soon.
When I think about Guiliani, I can point to so many changes that he made to the city. He had a really impact on NY, promising change and delivering it. And I’m talking about anything to do with 9/11. I’m talking about economic recovery, reductions in crime, and revitalizing major sections of the city.
Granted, a mayor can do more than a senator, but she’s had little to no impact on our state. I resent her candidacy as much as I resent women insisting on supporting her simply because she is a woman. I can make up my own mind, thank you, and don’t have to take Y chromosome or lack thereof into consideration. And whether I find myself in November voting for a Democrat or Republican is still up in the air. But it’s going to be a decision based on the merits of the candidate, not his or her spouse.
