Well Barack Obama has sealed the deal and named Senator Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. So much for change!!! Why does Obama keep on nominating former Clinton staff members and now a Clinton to positions in government? I thought he had something new to bring to Washington. He is recycling the same old garbage that we already have had. If there is anything that we can learn from the Clinton years, it is that he was weak on many things including in foreign affairs which after what happened in Mumbia, India should wake us up to the real dangers we face and who we have in key places when it comes to National Security.
Before all of you hard core kool-aid drinking liberals go ballistic about what I just said keep in mind the debacle in Somalia,( Think the movie Blackhawk down for those of you that lack knowledge of history unless Hollywood gives it to you). Or how about all of the attacks on U.S. interest abroad without a response during the Clinton years. Now we get more of the same Clinton policies for at least another four years. O what fun, I love this kind of change, even if you are a Democrat you have to scratch your head and wonder how is this any different than what Hillary would have done. (Well one thing would be different Obama would still be a Senator because Hillary would never had appointed him to any post.) It kinda reminds me of the movie Back to the Future, except the Obama doesn’t realize you can’t really go back to the past and change people.Does that mean that Hillary is going to be the same way she has always been and put her career before her Country , I don’t know, but in this day and age can we afford to wonder?
Whatever happened to new ideas, new vision, and new leadership? I guess that was just another stump speech with no meaning. Here is what I think happened way back in late May and June and the more I watch the more I believe its true. Hillary made a deal with Obama that she would drop her bid for the nomination if she could have control of his nominations and become Secretary of State. Kinda reminds you of the deal our buddy Putin has in Russia?
Now before you guys all say that I am crazy look at what is happening. Do you see any changes in Washington as far what Democrats are being nominated for leadership posts. Not one is a new up and coming Democrat. Most are former Clinton Staff members or senior Senators. Even Joe Biden you could argue was not a person that you would expect Obama to pick. Ted Strickland from Ohio or Bill Richardson from New Mexico would have been a better choice. But to be fair thank God, literally, that Biden isn’t Secretary of State, he would have made Madeline Albright look like a genius at that post.
Obama picks have been nothing more than a rehash of the Clinton Administration. Know for those of you that were hoping for change, I guess it was just from Republican to Democrat because other than that it is going to be business as usual in Washington. Hopefully that will be enough to break the stalemate of the Washington and is constant political grandstanding. I doubt it, Obama is not bringing anything new to the table. He just can communicate very well. He appears to be the rich mans version of Jimmy Carter.
Deals are done all the time in politics. Is there proof that this is another one of those deals? I don’t have any, but it sure appears that something is going on. Their is no doubt that Obama needed a lot of political help to get where he is today, and for him to be able to have Hillary give up what many will say was something she was working for since the day Bill left office if not before means that something had to have happened and deals had to have been made.
So much for change in Washington. Looks like the next four years are going to look a lot like the last eight. A whole lot of talk by the President, a whole lot of nothing from Congress, and a whole of BS from the liberal media about how great Obama and the Democrats are, well that part won’t be the same, President Bush could have turned into a liberal and the media would still be out to get him.
Well Merry Christmas Senator Clinton, you may have made out better than most will give you credit for. Can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve next.
