“…I say that even as someone who, if she decides to run for president and is the Democratic nominee, will nevertheless vote for her next year.”
And so there you have it. Here’s someone who understands and appreciates both the law and the depths to which Hillary Clinton has sunk, yet he’s going to vote for her anyway if she’s the nominee. I can totally relate to that, because I don’t care what scandal the Left could dig up on Ted Cruz, unless it’s revealed that he’s a secret, leftwing plant I will vote for him if he is the nominee – period. That’s because Hillary is a leftist and everything that this implies. As much as I share my fellow conservative’s outrage over Clinton’s obvious intent to evade accountability for her actions while S.O.S., the relentless pursuit of each and every scandal puts the focus of voters on just Hillary. That may be bad for Hillary but it’s great for the leftwing cause, because they just get another candidate and then we start pushing the rock up the hill all over again, digging around for more scandals (“Elizabeth Warren claimed to be an Indian!”). No one can tell me that Elizabeth Warren or the idiot-mitten from Maryland has no chance. I thought that when I first heard of Bill Clinton, the classless skirt chaser who nobody knew outside of Arkansas before 1992. I thought it when they introduced the obvious opportunist, con man communist from Illinois. This is why we should be using our time and space to finally have a debate about liberalism/progressivism/socialism/et al versus conservatism, truth and a free market society. Not only is that a winnable position but it damns EVERY leftwing candidate in the process, because ultimately they are all the same when it comes to the Left’s agenda. Win THAT fight and you will finally win the war.
That position is hard to fathom, isn’t it? I think what he’s saying (without saying it) is that he’s voting against the Republican, whoever he/she might be. It certainly paints a disturbing picture of a voter who, in the full knowledge of misdeeds and lies, still asserts that he will vote for Hillary. Those are the kind of people we’re opposing. I think that Mr. Metcalfe is fully aware of the philosophical differences between a typical democrat and a typical (RINO) Republican and he prefers the agenda of the democrat. It is disconcerting to see a reasonably intelligent (I’m guessing) person who can expect Hillary to stay true to form and still thinks that she can manage the United States in a way that is beneficial to her citizens. It is very disturbing.
On your other subject of pitting conservative values against liberal ones when trying to convince voters to choose a conservative, I agree with your premise, but the problem (as always) is to have a voice that can be heard by those in the general population who still have a functioning brain. We need to present a simple, concise comparison between the left and the right, presented by an articulate spokesperson, over and over and over again.
Good piece, Garnet. This clown LOST all credibility with me when he uttered the asininity of “…I say that even as someone who, if she decides to run for president and is the Democratic nominee, will nevertheless vote for her next year.”Is this asshat REALLY this stuck on stupid ? Beam me up, Scotty.
Ditto that Clyde. I would have put a lot more stock in his article if he’d left that statement out. I don’t know what he hoped to gain by admitting that, regardless of what Hillary’s done, he’ll still vote for her. He lost all credibility when he said that.
Hitlery knew exactly what she was doing and the fact that she installed her own server proves her intent and subsequent cover up. She did it on purpose to CYA for all the dirty deals she knew were in her future – deals that would surely send her to prison.
Even if Gowdy’s committee or the House were to get their hands on that server, it’s too late. It’s been scrubbed clean, trashed, or burned. She wouldn’t go to this much trouble only to be caught later on – not with the presidency within her grasp.
And it’s idiots like Metcalfe that pave the way for her.
No thinking person can arrive at any other conclusion. And the most disturbing thing about Mr. Metcalfe’s statement is that it displays the very reason that we continue to get corrupt individuals in our government – they KNOW that they can do almost anything and still retain their supporters. With that knowledge, why would an office holder refrain from evil doings when they know that they’ll get away with it? There appears to be no price to pay – no one is held accountable, and when one is predisposed to commit criminal acts, and there are no consequences, a “why not? everybody does it” mindset becomes pervasive.
Are there no more genuinely honest people running for office anymore? You can count them on your fingers.
Forgot to add: of course the hard drive is now as clean as a newborn’s bottom (after wiping of course). The time granted (now, another two weeks) before evidence must be produced is akin to warning a meth lab that the authorities will be dropping by on Thursday afternoon, March 26th at 3:30 PM to check for illegal drug making.
