To follow up my earlier posting of an Obama speech, here, in the interest of equal time, is the Clinton speech given after her New Hampshire win. Warning: the following speech may contain the phrase “Weâ€™re going to tap into all of the spirit, the talent and just the plain grit of this great nation again.” If you’re suffering from acute allergies to meandering, incoherent, vacuous bullshit, you may want to skip this. What’s amazing is that Hillary accuses Obama of being all talk and no substance. This is a person who has barely any more time in the senate than Obama, and her only other true political experience is a failed healthcare proposal as first lady. Like it our not, she’s no Bill Clinton. Not even close. And the following speech makes that obvious. Bill talked a chick into letting him diddle her with a cigar as reciprocation for oral. A goddam cigar. If that’s not a metaphor for being an effective statesman, I don’t know what is. At any rate, I’ve taken the liberty to add a few editorial comments. I’d warn you that not all are safe for work, but I think it’s a bit too late for that.
“I felt like we all spoke from our hearts, and I am so gratified that you responded. Wait, did you FEEL like you spoke from your heart, or did you actually speak from the heart? Honesty is not a feeling, it’s a factual matter. I think this sentence is pretty revealing of her character, like how you know when somebody starts a sentence with ‘Honestly…’ they are probably about to lie. Now, together, letâ€™s give America the kind of comeback that New Hampshire has just given me. For all the ups and downs of this campaign, you helped remind everyone that politics isnâ€™t a game. This campaign is about people. What the hell? Were her writers on strike, too? Itâ€™s about making a difference in your lives. According to the Constitution, it’s not supposed to be… Itâ€™s about making sure that everyone in this country has the opportunity to live up to his or her God-given potential. The opportunity, or the Federally mandated entitlement to appear to live up to their potential at the expense of those who actually did? There’s a difference, Hillary. That has been the work of my life. Wait, did I copy the wrong speech, or did a corporate lawyer with 7 years in the Senate really say that?
We are facing a moment of so many big challenges. We know we face challenges here at home, around the world, so many challenges for the people whose lives Iâ€™ve been privileged to be part of. Iâ€™ve met families in this state and all over our country who have lost their homes to foreclosures. A ludicrous bit of pandering to the “greedy lower middle class” who decided a $300k home was everyone’s birthright. Why do some politicians want to help “the people” so much when they don’t even respect them enough to think they can take responsibility for their own decisions? Men and women who work day and night but canâ€™t pay the bills and hope they donâ€™t get sick because they canâ€™t afford health insurance. One of the quickest ways to lower health care costs is to quit taking soft money from the trial lawyers lobby and fix our tort system, Hillary. Young people who canâ€™t afford to go to college to pursue their dreams. Now she’s pandering to Obama’s young vote on a complete non-starter of an issue. I’ve never met a person for whom money was the reason they didn’t go to college. The state and community college system, and availability of financial aid, is quite good in this country, rhetoric aside. Too many have been invisible for too long. Well, you are not invisible to me. At least not until she gets elected, at which point you’ll be as visible as your bank account will let you be, just like every other president, liberal or conservative.
The oil companies, the drug companies, the health insurance companies, the predatory student loan companies have had seven years of a president who stands up for them. Because they bought him the same way they bought her. Itâ€™s time we had a president who stands up for all of you. Like she stood up for the victims Norman Hsu scammed?
I intend to be that president, to be a president who puts you first – your lives, your families, your children, your future. OMG, that is SO what I want in my BFF president. She understands and cares for MEEEEEEE! I believe deeply in America, in our can-do spirit, in our ability to meet any challenge and solve any problem. By “our ability,” I take it she means “our government’s ability.” I believe in what we can do together. In the future, we will build together. And by “we” she means the top 20% of income earners, who are the only ones she thinks should pay any significant taxes. There will be no more invisible Americans. What? There are invisible Americans? Run away!!! So weâ€™re going to take what weâ€™ve learned here in New Hampshire, and weâ€™re going to rally on and make our case. We are in it for the long run. Because she’ll have to wait to the convention to be able to politically broker a win through the superdelegates.
And that is because we are in it for the American people. Bold stand, Hil. Bold stand. This victory will serve notice that people across our country know whatâ€™s really at stake, that we will all be called upon to deliver on the promise of America. I don’t remember seeing anything about a welfare state in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. If the founding fathers knew the experiment wouldn’t even last 250 years before we turned back into a facsimile of the English, I think they would’ve just enjoyed their beers and not bothered.
Weâ€™ll be called upon to deliver on the promise that the middle class will grow and prosper again, to deliver on the promise the government will be of the people, by the people and for the people, not just the privileged few, But, of course, the privileged few are the majority of her campaign support, and the one’s she’ll call upon to hand her a brokered election. to deliver on the promise that every generation will have their shot at the American dream, I think she’s confusing the French dream of guaranteed employment and healthcare with the American dream she’s trying to destroy. to deliver on the promise that weâ€™ll have the will and the wisdom to end the war in Iraq the right way, to deliver on the promise to take care of our brave veterans and restore Americaâ€™s standing, respect, and credibility around the world. We know that for the promise of America to be real, we are called upon to deliver on that promise. Reread that a few times and then try to stand up without falling. Hard, isn’t it? And if you join in this call to greatness, we will, together, answer. I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit. So tomorrow, weâ€™re going to get up, roll up our sleeves and keep going.
I invite you to come join us at Hillaryclinton.com. Weâ€™re going to tap into all of the spirit, the talent and just the plain grit of this great nation again. I did warn you; I’ll wait while you clean that up. People with either talent or grit don’t actually need to be forced to buy healthcare, or be protected by unions, and they don’t vote for Hillary. Maybe by “tap into” she means literally, in the form of confiscatory taxes to benefit those without grit and spirit.
We are determined to tackle our toughest problems and stand up to those who most need a champion because we are determined to make America work again for all of our people. And I believe we have a “Cliche Bingo” winner in in the second row! We came back tonight because you spoke loudly and clearly. You want this campaign to be about you Is this a tampon commercial or a campaign speech? because there is so much at stake for our country.
I have so many people to thank. I want to thank the two most important people in my life, Bill and Chelsea. I want to thank them for their incredible commitment, their passion and their heart. I want to thank my entire family, particularly my mother, who is watching tonight. Holy shit, she just thanked Bill Clinton for his incredible commitment!!!
