Count this....

While I do not support clinton for president, I feel that she is getting a raw deal on the delegate count situation. Because Florida and Mich. democrats wanted to hold their primaries out of turn the votes don’t count? Imagine if you will the fervor that would take place if this was a situation between a democrat and a republican… It would be the lead story on all networks all the time, only if it put the democrat behind of course. If the republican were behind it would be looked at as sour grapes on his part. And you know it would. Which is the situation on the talking head networks, they are trying as hard as they can to display clinton as a mean, hateful, bitch who just will not give up.
Having lived through two clinton presidencies while closely watching all that he did while in office, I hope that she doesn’t win the general election. But at the same time I can’t help but feel that the machine they have counted on for so long still has a few explosive rounds up their collective sleeve. I am sure that there is some truth to the depiction that is being pushed through on talking head tv that the machine isn’t as powerful as it once was. Several rats have deserted. But these people are ruthless beyond measure, and I feel an upset coming. I think that the people that lay the first Bush presidency at the feet of the court systems are going to be doing quite a bit of face rubbing and looking the other way when ms. Clinton gets done in court. She will not let this go, I assure you. Obama will not be the candidate and hillary will probably win the general election. When she does win, I will hold her to her own standards. I expect to see all American troops home within sixty days, peace flourishing throughout the middle east, .85 per gallon gas prices, free healthcare (with no waiting or turn downs), a budget surplus (a real one, not just projected), a surplus in the “social security fund”, 0% unemployment rate, a “real” tax break, and a jump of at least 30% in wages…. If all this doesn’t happen I’m going to start comparing her to hitler. Then I may jump up and down a while, then go get a coffee at starbucks…

I don’t support Clinton either, in any capacity, but I don't feel that she is getting a raw deal. The DNC made the rules and everybody agreed long before the primaries began to abide by the same Rules. It’s not ethically sound to agree to the rules and then to want to change them because the outcome doesn’t please you. It’s a patent Clintonian trait that we’ve seen too many times before and that made Bill Clinton the first President to be impeached since Johnson. But after all, it was just perjury, right?
Granted, the votes are there and Florida had a record turn-out, but the fact is, they all agreed in advance. If these voters are disenfranchised, it’s the fault of the DNC and all the players are a part of that group, like it or not.
Think of it like a baseball game: Both parties agree, in advance, to abide by the rulings of the umpires. If they refuse, the game breaks down. It doesn’t matter if the umpire is Right or Wrong; all involved agreed to the circumstances. Of course we all know how ball players argue over certain calls but, ultimately, the Umpire always wins. That’s the rules.
