HRC struck many (self included) as a bought and paid for corporate shill. Her own record and top secret speeches did little to dispell that idea. And it cost her…
Frankly, the idea of nepotism be it a dim son (W.) or a shrewed wife (HRC) was just plain gross to me. Sure. I voted HRC — but but the idea that for most of my adult life it would have been all Bushes and Clintons in the White House is deeply unsettling.
BUSH — 1988 to 1992.
BILL — 1992 to 2000.
W. — 200O to 2008.
**obama — 2008 – 2016.**
HRC — 2016 – ?
That would have meant other than a tiny 8 year window… it was all bushes and clintons in the white house… my ENTIRE adult life — from 18 to 50 or maybe even 54.
That’s FUCKED up. NEITHER family is that great. No way. No day. This surely bothered other voters who were less pragmatic than I. Bittergaymark my word on that. Dynastys fucking such.June 9, 2017 at 1:38 pm #689923
A lot of people weren’t happy about Trudeau in Canada for that same reason, BGM. At least it’s been a good 30 years or so since his dad was in power. But still.June 9, 2017 at 1:42 pm #689925

A lot of people I know were annoyed and I’m not fond of having the same people in office either, but you understand how that’s both completely irrelevant to the purpose of voting and actively encouraged by ignorance of politics, right? If people aren’t going to inform themselves enough to know what’s going on, they are going to vote for who they know (or think they know by association). Obama gained traction because he was actively being promoted by Dem leadership and had put himself in the spotlight at Kerry’s DNC, and his personality rolled it from there. The Clinton Saga is as reality tv as it gets in politics (oh wait I forgot the presumed president). And Sanders had a lot of fans, but not enough to win (rallies are great gauges of interest and but rally numbers aren’t useful for winning primaries). If people actually knew who he was in the South, he probably would have had a much better run than he had. Honestly, what that really says is that parties aren’t really all that good at cultivating future leadership.
It’s also super irrelevant. Are the policies good or aren’t they? Will they move the world in the direction you want or won’t they? Maybe I’d like this line of argumentation better if I ever heard someone say this about FDR or even knew that Kennedy incited a whole law regarding family members in the cabinet because of nepotism.July 2, 2017 at 2:06 pm #692520

But Ivanka is sitting in for him as she is so fucking brilliant and qualified. Hey, nothing says “I try to stay out of politics” like sitting in at a summit of world leaders… Ugh.July 11, 2017 at 9:24 am #693346
Does anyone know – are all of the lawyers that have been hired to manage conflicts of interest, harassment and the Russia investigation – are those taxpayer funded or privately funded? I should know this. I don’t know.July 11, 2017 at 9:28 am #693347
I believe they’re lawyering up with their own counsel, own money. Don Junior’s lawyer represents notable organized crime families.July 11, 2017 at 1:23 pm #693373
Hopefully, it’s all FINALLY going to explode. Donnie Jr is a fucking moron. String him up.July 11, 2017 at 1:43 pm #693374
The way republicans on TV are trying to downplay it is making my head explode. It’s illegal! It’s probably treason! It contradicts everything they’ve been saying about Russia collusion with the campaign being Fake News. This is collusion.
I think that the investigation has already uncovered plenty, and that they’re hard at work on a plan to get him out of office. I am hoping that McCain, Graham, and some of the other more normal republicans are in the middle of it – it would make sense why McCain went on a world tour assuring all the countries that everything’s fine. I hope they have it under control and will first get Pence to resign (he’s as deep in the shit as the fake president is), assign a new VP, then go to Donald and say, you’ve got to go. Goodbye. And somebody like McCain steps in as president. Or some fucking thing that makes a lick of sense.
