Would Hillary Have Been Better Than Obama?

No matter the likes of Bill Maher, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee or Whoopi Goldberg still insisting that anyone who dares to criticize Obama is a racist, most Americans, even die-hard fans from 3 years ago, know his failure to lead has nothing to do with racism.

I struck up a conversation with an elderly African-American gentleman at our local hospital waiting room on Friday. We were watching the news and listening to the commander-in-chief threatening Armageddon unless the debt ceiling was raised immediately. In a surreal moment, the senior citizen turned to me and said he wished he had voted for Hillary in the primaries. Then the man asked me, "Do you think the country would be better if Hillary was President?"

As a former Clintonista and recovering hard-core liberal, I had one of those out-of-body experiences. I couldn't answer the man's question. Memories of my past came to me. I saw myself years ago as one of the pod people marching alongside groups like CODEPINK toward the Washington Monument. Then in a flash I was transported from DC shouting anti-Bush excoriations alongside thousands of liberal-minded stalwarts, to shaking hands with Sarah and Todd Palin at one of their rallies in October 2008.

How bizarre!

Later I realized that this serendipitous encounter with a complete stranger at the hospital had validated my June 2008 awakening. His disillusionment and sense of betrayal by the One was palpable in his question. I felt sorry and elated at the same time. Sorry that so many like him had voted for a dangerous interloper and were now seeing their children's futures under the control of people far more ominous than run-of-the mill Republican profiteers; and elated that I had withstood accusations of racism from family and fellow Democrats for renouncing Obama and his false promises in November 2008.

I am not alone. Since the takeover of the DNC by Obama and his minions on May 31, 2008, millions of independents and Democrats have lifted up the rock of so-called liberalism and seen the sludge and slime underneath. The left's class warfare/racial rhetoric is a masterful lie, a ruse, a con job, a ruling class ploy to amass followers, using them to promote an agenda that will eventually do them in.

No wonder the man in the waiting room feels lost, used, betrayed and nostalgic for the days of another progressive, flawed politician. Arthur Miller once said that "betrayal is the only truth that sticks." 

Obama should heed those words. He has stuck it to the very people who believed in him and by all accounts, outside the world of his skewed, slanted, fraudulent polls, they are not happy.
