Don Surber On Hillary and Anna…and Obama…and Kucinich

by

The other day, at my own blog, I did a piece here on Anna Quindlen and her whatever it was article on Hillary and Obama teaming up together.  It was quite sad.  Perhaps she should put her keyboard back in the box.

 

Then,  today, I run across a piece from Don Surber here.  The article is grand and right on track.  I especially like the comments he received and I will place them in this post.  I hope Don doesn’t mind.

 

 

From Don Surber:

Hillary’s ticket, Kucinich’s platform

 

Anna Quindlen at Newsweek gushed over a Hillary/Barack ticket.

 

Whatever. That’s window dressing. First woman! First black! Between them, they barely have 10 years experience in the Senate. Yes, I am going to trust my nation’s security in the hands of a lightweight and a lightweight lite.

 

Hey, while she’s at it, Hillary should cop John Edwards’ hair style.

 

What is more troubling is that with this vacuum of experience comes a vacuity of ideas. Hillary was against staying home and baking cookies until she came out with a cookie recipe.

 

Into that vacuum will come the worst of the left, Dennis Kucinich, to fill in the blank.

 

Fairness doctrine? Kucinich was the first to resurrect that relic of the Roosevelt era. He told Lou Dobbs: “I think that this is an opportunity for America to revisit the issue of consolidation of the media. And how it relates to whether the media is serving in the public interest.”

 

That was in January. Now even John Kerry is flapping his gums about it. Look for Hillary to hop on that bandwagon when it becomes half-full.

 

She’s already latched onto Kucinch’s Big Idea from 2004: Outsourcing. Said Kucinich in 2004:

Three million Americans have lost their jobs, and the Bush Administration tells us — again — that’s a good thing? Their insensitivity to the economic devastation that their trade policies have inflicted on American workers is staggering. The only thing more outrageous is that they are so insulated from everyday Americans that they may actually believe what they are saying — because they keep saying it.

Last week, Hillary told the Indian Institutes of Technology Alumni gathering (the institutes are a major supplier of engineers to the Silicon Valley):

Workers in the United States are concerned about outsourcing, and I think they’re right to be – but so should all of us who value the bilateral relationship between the U.S. and India. If the U.S. continues to outsource jobs to India in increasingly large numbers, people will increasingly feel insecure and increasingly seek protection.

She said this even as she said she wanted to increase the number of H1-b visas so that tech companies can import more Indians.

 

Does that make sense to you? Me neither.

 

So while Quindlen plays dress-up dolls with the candidates, Dennis Kucinich is setting the agenda. Not to alarm anyone, but here is his plan to really screw-up, er, “help” America:

1. Universal Health Care
2. International Cooperation: US out of Iraq, UN in
3. Jobs and Withdrawal from NAFTA and WTO
4. Repeal of the “Patriot Act”
5. Guaranteed Quality Education, Pre-K Through College
6. Full Social Security Benefits at Age 65
7. Right-to-Choose, Privacy and Civil Rights
8. Balance Between Workers and Corporations
9. Environmental Renewal and Clean Energy
10. Restored Rural Communities and Family Farms

We’ll be just like France: 45% paid in rates, 8% unemployment.

    July 16th, 2007 at 4:00 pm Hillary and Obama! Can’t even contemplate that! Out of my mind! Beat it! Go away!

    Kucinich is a nut – and unemployment will be way higher than that under his “plan.”

    July 16th, 2007 at 5:54 pm Shorter Hillary:

    Workers in the United States are concerned about outsourcing, and if the U.S. continues to outsource jobs in increasingly large numbers, people will increasingly feel insecure and increasingly seek protection.

    Even shorter Hilllary:

    Outsourcing bad, protectionism good.

    Also, when was the last time Anna Quindlen was relevant?

    July 17th, 2007 at 12:34 pm He’s not black! He’s not black!

    I keep saying it. I hate it when people are black when convenient and white when it’s not.

    If Hilary would take the time to LEARN what is going on regarding Universal healt care all she has to do is read an article by Dr. Ron Davis , president , Americam Medical Association. on http://www.ama. assn.org/go/insurance-reform… she just might learn what she is usually ignorant of… among many other things.
