Oh, the novelty of being the lone female candidate in a crowd of males. This election cycle, both Carly Fiorina and Hillary Clinton know that reality in their separate parties. However, only one is promoting herself as a champion for women while being the exact opposite. Hillary Clinton has none of the charm that her spouse (apparently) had. She is an unlikeable candidate, and must work hard to portray herself as one of us. Her soft campaign launch in April began with a yawn-inducing video. In June, Hillary officially launched her campaign atop an “H” stage, and spoke to the assembled crowd:
“You brought our country back, now it’s time, your time, to secure the gains ahead,” she stated. “America can’t succeed unless you succeed – that’s why I’m running for the president of the United States.”
“I’m not running for some Americans, but for all Americans,” Clinton added
How “charming”. Except she doesn’t mean any of it. While sometimes that might be difficult to tell (I jest), it was more than obvious this week when Mrs. Clinton vocally supported Planned Parenthood. This defense is not surprising, but it is far removed from the “for all Americans” populist talk. Politico reported the following:
“It is unfortunate that Planned Parenthood has been the object of such a concerted attack for so many years,” she said, “and it’s really an attack against a woman’s right to choose, to make the most personal difficult decisions that any woman would face.”
Republicans, especially presidential candidate Scott Walker, have pressured Clinton on the issue in recent days, but she had stayed silent on the controversy until she was asked about it during a question-and-answer session on Thursday.
When the bodies of adult women are physically crushed during a procedure at a Planned Parenthood location, let me know, ok, Hillary? No, the attack is not on women. It is on the unborn, a generation which might become part of a 2 for 1 baby organ sale before they’re even allowed a breath outside of the womb. If anything is a several years-long attack, it is the unholy sacrament of abortion. But Hillary is a champion for all of us! Well, aren’t we lucky? We’re the ones who got away.
According to the Guttmacher Institute fact sheet from July 2014, women gave the following reasons for having an abortion:
Three-fourths of women cite concern for or responsibility to other individuals; three-fourths say they cannot afford a child; three-fourths say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or the ability to care for dependents; and half say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner.
These reasons for ending a life are outrageous, and, if you’ve noticed, are NOT life-threatening situations. But Hillary accepts them, labels them as “reproductive health services”, and decries anyone who rejects them. And when she’s questioned, the media, such as in the Politico excerpt above, declares her as being “pressured” by other candidates. It is blatantly obvious that she receives a pass in general because of who she is, and a pass on sensitive issues that might bring negative attention. And she’s supposedly fighting for all of us? Seems to be just a select few on a limited number of issues. What presidential material she…isn’t.
When I see Hillary saying…
“I don’t want you to vote for me just because I’m a woman,” she said, “I want you to vote for me on my merits, but one of my merits is that I’m a woman.”
…I laugh. Firstly, her merits are nonexistent. Secondly, she submits that one of her merits is that she is a woman?! I was unaware a feature which we entirely lack control over should be rewarded so much. And not just any reward, a vote-for-president award. If that’s not using your gender as a crutch because you can’t walk on your own, I don’t know what is.
Hillary is not only against a certain segment of future Americans by way of her support for Planned Parenthood, she is awfully proud of acting a fool when it comes to being a woman. She is selective in being a voice for others, all the while saying the opposite, and promotes gender over substance. Not very presidential, if you ask me.
