Hillary: what she’ll face in the dem debate

“Any politician can skate around tough questions. It’s a primary skill. The usual method is turning a specific question into a general answer. A non-sequitur. But these days, there is another strategy. You could call it the ‘no-catastrophe’ approach. The politician, by word or gesture, implies: ‘If I had done something wrong, there would have been a calamity, but as you can see, there wasn’t; therefore, let’s move along to another topic.’ Or to put it another way: ‘I’m smart, you’re stupid, I have a meeting, goodbye.’” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
In the dem debate, Hillary will face a few tough questions. Translation: It will seem as if she’s being attacked, just to give the impression that things are on the up and up; she’ll skate; she’ll change the subject to “more important matters our great nation must face in the coming months and years.”
Q: What about the email controversy that has engulfed your campaign for the Presidency?
A: Yes, I made a mistake, for which I’ve apologized. However, no serious breach occurred, and I must say there are vital issues we need to discuss here, about our collective future, about the rights of women and of all our people…
Q: Questions have been swirling about your state of health.
A: I assure you, I’m fine. I feel very energized about the coming campaign, and just as I served in the capacity of Secretary of State, traveling the world to defend our national interests, I am quite capable of carrying out the duties of President of the United States.
Essentially, Hillary’s view, for public consumption, is: what’s past is past. Anything that ever happened to her, anything she did is gone and buried. So as she said about Benghazi: “What difference does it make?”
Her record, as far as she’s concerned, is unimportant, except that it’s “admirable and wonderful” and qualifies her for the highest office in the land.
What’s all this nonsense about her specific actions and history? Specifics are distractions. The gloss is everything.
Obama’s brand of gloss put him over the top. So did George Bush’s. So did Bill’s.
Whatever is “good and right and true”—Hillary stands for that. Candidates are impressionists. She is an impressionist, too. End of problem.
Hillary has been aching for a campaign that is a wall-to-wall celebration of her status. There have been some horrible interruptions.
What’s wrong with people? Don’t they want a glorious parade with bands and streamers and shouts of unrestrained joy?
A certain few people rise to a great height in this society, at which point they should be beyond criticism. She is one of those people.
Misdemeanors? Felonies? Those are incorrectly applied labels for “what one needs to do to emerge from the mass” and become known. Everybody knows that.
Candidates are supposed to be walking advertisements for themselves. As a self-advertisement, Hillary is quite a dish. Other envious people have shot her with ashes and fungi and mold and viruses, but that’s not her fault.
She wants to shout from the rooftops: “I’m entitled! I’m entitled to wear the crown!” It’s eating her up that she can’t do it.
She wants to announce: “All you peasants bow before me! I’m the queen!”
In that way, she’s living in the wrong century. She belongs in the Middle Ages, on a throne, with an adoring and fearful court at her feet.
She has that energy, and she’s repressing it, and it’s killing her.
On the campaign trail, in the debates, she has to piddle around with little questions and little answers and fools who don’t understand who and what she is.
That’s where she makes her mistakes. She can’t bring herself to the level where a queen would abdicate her position and respond seamlessly to Lilliputian attacks.
In her psyche, universal rights, equality, political correctness, social justice—all the issues for which she is supposed to be the consummate Left advocate—are idiot soup for the starry-eyed rubes and yokels. She couldn’t care less about any of it. She wants the crown and the scepter and sword.
She wants to grind her enemies under her heel. She wants them to feel her rage.
Wrong time, wrong place. And she doesn’t have the gift for smooth unadulterated lying a candidate needs.
She should be a lead in Game of Thrones. Then she could vent her spleen.
But she’s trying to settle for the Presidency.
If she can’t have blood, gore, internecine plots, murder, suicide, incest, land armies with spears, assaults on castles, conflagrations, she’ll try to make do with the Oval Office.
Hillary’s current army of sycophants sees everything in terms of symbols and idols. They have no idea who they’re dealing with. Even if they did, they’d reject what they’re seeing, because it doesn’t match their infantile conception of the “heroic struggle” to impose utopia on America.
