Hillary the Disingenuous

From my backyard, I heard the nostalgic music from the ice cream man's truck as he toured the neighborhood. It brought back fond memories of the excitement we felt as neighborhood kids; a nickel from our parents for a Popsicle and off we ran to the ice cream truck. The banana boat was really expensive; a whooping 50 cents. It was a plastic boat with a banana split down the middle with 3 scoops of ice cream, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry topped with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and a cherry. Man oh man, I'm talkin' heaven.

I know. Such talk makes me sound 110 years old. I get the same reaction when I suggest that the character of a candidate should be the number one consideration in whether or not to pull the lever for them.

More and more in these modern times, we are told that expecting moral behavior (character) from our politicians is judgmental, fanatically Christian, naive, old-fashioned, and outdated. When Bill Clinton committed adultery, receiving oral sex from an intern in the Oval Office, the MSM response was that any man in his position would have succumb. Clinton's serial adultery required proficiency as a liar. Still, he left office with over 60% approval. Bill Clinton bit his lip as if trying to hold back tears of compassion at the appropriate times and gave away government freebies. Who cares if his character left much to be desired?

Speaking of prolific liars, our current president is the undisputed world champion of presidential liars. It still blows my mind that this guy pulled a huge bait and switch lie to pass ObamaCare, lying about it in over 20 speeches and everyone seems to have moved on. Obama's approval is nowhere near as low as in should be if our country expected morality from their political representatives. Sadly, lapses in character have become so commonplace in politicians that we have become desensitized. Our response is, “Oh well, whatever.”

Also quite disturbing is the effect of the lack of character in the White House flowing down infecting the American people. More Americans have a “screw what is right for the country, I am going to vote for whoever gives me the most freebies” mindset. Obama loves to trash the rich and achievers from his bully pulpit. Deadbeats cheer him vowing to take from the haves and redistribute to the have nots. Who cares if you know Obama is lying whenever his lips are moving?

Now, Hillary Clinton will probably run, asking us to make her America's first female president. Millions made the emotional mistake of voting for Obama because he is black. I pray voters do not make a similar mistake voting for Hillary just because she is a woman. For crying out loud, folks, please take a hard look at who Hillary is as a person.

When I think of Hillary, one word comes to mind. Disingenuous

We are all familiar with the cornucopia of Clinton scandals over the years. Most recent is her arrogant conniving email fiasco.

By the way, at Hillary's press conference, the first reporter asked, if she were a man, would the email mess matter? Folks, that question epitomizes what we can expect if Hillary wins the White House. Just as the MSM and Democrats claim that every disagreement with Obama is an attack on his race, every disagreement with Hillary will be spun as an attack on her gender.

Back to Hillary's character, or should I say lack of it.

Pat Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, who was killed in the terrorist attack on our U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Hillary gave Pat a hug, looked her in the eye and lied to her saying the attack was about a video; while knowing it had nothing to do with a video. Folks, for me, when you strip away all the Clintons' political positioning, lies and scams, this act by Hillary speaks to the heart of who this person truly is.

Hugging that grieving mother, looking her in the eye and lying to her about her dead son is akin to saying "I don't care about you. This is all about protecting me". Such is the cold callous behavior of a sociopath. 

Folks, the character of those whom we place in high positions of power really does matter. Please consider who a candidate is as a person, before electing them.

Do ice cream trucks still offer the traditional Banana Boat anymore? A bite or two will not kill me.
