Hillary Clinton could be the United States’ Secretary of State. Can we not just get raptured right now? Hillary Clinton is going to be the face of our foreign policy to the world. Yeah, that one, the lady who was bent on breaking the gender barrier in the Presidency and is most likely bitter as hell about Obama upstaging her. Just a year ago or less, Clinton was the clear-cut candidate for being the Democratic representative and now she finds herself being appeased by the Dear Leader-Elect with a cabinet position. I can understand that, but why Secretary of State? Could we not put her over the EPA or the Education department or some other non-functioning government bureaucracy? We are replacing Colin Powell and Condeleeza Rice with freaking Billary. That is not a change I would ever want to believe in(I bet Bill is gonna love her being gone to the Middle East and China all the time though–good for him).
In other news, the guy with a killer goatee, Bill Richardson, is probably going to re-enter the fun world of government bureaucracy also. I really do not have much of a problem with that.
But I just cannot get over Obama’s first real grievous act of his Presidency putting Billary as our representative to the world. Obviously, he is streamlining her for a run in ’16 which if she does not screw up too bad, she will be a heavy favorite(mainly because the Republican party is in shambles and I have little faith in their ability to plug the holes in the sinking ship).
Is Religion to Blame for the GOP’s Downfall?
I am one of those pesky evangelical Christians. According to a piece in today’s Greenville News(sorry no link but I found it actually in the print version…I might have to explain what that is to some people), me and my co-horts are the reason why the Republican Party is sucking right now. I am not surprised that the Christians are to blame for the Republican Party going down. I mean, when all else fails, blame the Christians! They were to blame for the burning of Rome, right? I am not trying to go victim complex on you, but religion is not to blame the absolute suckage of the GOP.
How about the Republicans becoming just like the Democrats in regards to spending? You know, like abandoning the conservative principles the entire party is founded on with economic policies? Religion can be a negative force for a party. The Democratic Party does not have to worry about because they are devoid of any moral compass, but this is a “problem” the Republican Party has to deal with. There will be those whackos like Pat Robertson calling for the heads of foreign dictators, but that is not representative of the entire base. Christians are probably the most loyal of all factions within the Republican Party to a fault really.
The issue could be that the zealous Christians could be alienating the rest of Republicans which is altogether possible because Christians can tend to be abrasive sometimes. Christian issues that fuse into Republican issues like marriage between homosexuals and the right to life can be a problem also. Though even in California, the marriage issue did not really go on party lines because Kaleefornya is a traditionally liberal state(but despite this, it is my favorite state in the union, love every minute of living outside of ‘Frisco). The Republican Party needs to focus on returning to conservatism rather than seperating themselves from religion because without that base, they will never be prominent again and a third party could conceivably be created.
Well thats my ramblings for the day…if you read…then comment please…out
