i had all but decided to not ever speak of election bullsh**t again- but then i see these headlines:
is hillary clinton dishonest? many americans think so
now, it isn't the embellishments i mind- all politicians and job seekers attempt to put themselves in the best light- heroes if you will- someone who is absolutely necessary and indispensable. what i can't understand is hillary's propensity to out and out lie. she has many accomplishments that don't need embellishments or lies and why she feels she has to overdo- is beyond me.
the other niggling issue for hillary's overall image- is her propensity for cozying up to the right. i mean i guess that's where the money is these days- but be a bit more discreet. seriously. the using of the right wing 'news' outlets is also worrisome. if clinton is this comfortable using these ways of doing things, is she really to be trusted rolling back the abuses to our civil liberties? is she going to end torture and secret prisons? or is she going to focus on issues near and dear to her constituency of middle aged feminists? i am all about domestic programs- but there are more pressing issues right now.
i am not enamored with barack obama- he is about 4th on my list of candidates- and he's the only one left to vote for. and if more snippets come out about him being more to the right than i would like- guess who's withholding her vote?
