Hillary Is Here

Were there any of you who doubted that Hillary Clinton's Presidential bid?  I mean, really?  She has been preparing for this for a very long time and many Democratic pundits believe it's "her time."  Neither should we be surprised that the hit pieces are coming out like nuts.  Rand Paul, Republican candidate, has already taken a shot across the bow with an anti-Hillary ad.  The consultants have probably told him that he should try to make himself the frontrunner by posturing against Hillary.  I'm not so sure that technique really works.  The problem with all of the attacks on Hillary now is that by the time the election comes along, people will be sick unto the point of death with the negative ads.

Personally, I think it's going to come down to another Bush/Clinton showdown - and that is the very last thing this country needs.  In essence, the American people are going to be forced to choose between the lesser of two evils and I have no clue who will win that battle.  Jeb Bush is an opportunist, entitled, rich boy with more money than sense.  Hillary is an assertive woman who can be a real bitch.  So, there are our choices.  Pretty abysmal, isn't it?

The reason I think it will come down to the Bush/Clinton race is that the nomination has been, and always will be, about cash flow.  Whomever can raise the most money in the Republican Primary will win, whomever raises the most in the Democratic Primary will win.  It's a simple formula - money buys votes.

Hillary is not the Antichrist, neither is Jeb Bush.  They are just not what this country needs right now.  The growing threat of terrorism and the repercussions of a prolonged war in the sandbox are the things that need to be addressed and addressed quickly and effectively.  Neither Hillary nor Jeb will have that as their hot button talking points.  They will have their agendas, and here are some samples of what I believe Bush and Clinton will be putting out there for public consumption:

Bush:  Reversing Obamacare, lower taxes on the rich, oil subsidies, corporate welfare, downsizing government assistance to the poor, reversing environmental protection laws, partial amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Clinton:  Assault weapons ban, national gun registry, reduction of the DOD budget, increased entitlement spending, increased tax audits on large corporations, full amnesty for illegal immigrants

This election could serve to turn off even more voters.

Of course, it's just my opinion and I could be wrong, but I doubt it.
