In the comments section DDorsey noted that I don’t spend enough time promoting Clinton. (To be fair, there’s not enough time to mention all the wonderful things about Hillary). But I figured I’d post Rita Lyn’s comment about debunking myths surrounding Clinton.
Let me address her critics. Here’s what they say:
Critic: Hillary doesn’t have experience.
Response: Define “experience”. Does it mean that she knows correct protocal? She has experience. Does it mean she understands the pressures of the office of President of the United States? She has experience. Does it mean that she understands the needs of children? She has experience. Does it mean that she’s aware of how America is viewed around the world? She has experience. Does it mean that she is aware of Washington politics? She has experience. In fact, the only candidate in the race, Republican or Democratic who has actually resided in the White House is Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Critic: She follows public opinion.
Response: Thank God! I desire a president who goes with public opinion. Our current President once made the statement that he’d continue with HIS way of doing things in Iraq even if the ONLY ones who believed in him were Laura and Barney. The concept of “my way or the highway” has got to go! We need a president, not a dictator. That’s what democracy is all about.
Critic: She has way too much baggage.
Response: Who doesn’t? Could any of us survive our closets being cleaned out and written about by the media on a daily basis? I couldn’t. Through all of the anti-Hillary books, articles and speeches, she still stands and confronts the cameras. She’s not hiding. Her accomplishments are many and let’s focus on that. Before you throw stones, match up your accomplishments with hers.
Critic: She runs a Washington-type campaign.
Response: Of course she does! That’s how politics work. Those who would portray themselves as unique or different in their campaigns are not being truthful. They have a staff and people working for them just as Hillary does.
Critic: Hillary “plays” to her female base
Response: Duh! Of course she does! That’s not a fault. Look at the male candidates who dress up as “hunters” and go for the “manly-man” photo op. Yet, that’s perfectly alright. Boys will be boys! She appeals to women just to let them know that they’re NOT invisible. Up until 1920, they were. Oh yeah, there’s that saying: “Behind every great man there’s a great woman”. Now, what was her name again?
Are there any other myths or anti Clinton argument’s you guy’s have? I’d be glad to debunk those too 😉
