Over my lifetime, the Republican Party have represented themselves as the “right” party, with its affiliation to the Christian Right Wing, its fight against legalized abortion, and their persecution of a president at the end of his term for his sexual escapades. In that same lifetime, I have seen more hypocracy from the Republicans than one could imagine. What I find absolutely sickening though is that the Democrats, claiming to be liberal intellects, are not much better than the Republicans.
Take for example, the last few weeks of the Democratic Presidential nomination race have shown to be full of low-blows, psychological attacks, and less than factually-based commentary. Hilary Clinton, supposedly so experienced, especially while representing the people of New York during the time of the 911 attacks, has been lowering herself constantly by choosing to air ads using fear to get support. Did she not learn from the years since the towers fell? I was insulted by this campaign ad and choice to air it. The media is equally to blame. Not one piece of evidence connecting Obama to the federal case being brought against his old fundraiser has been shown to the voters, yet the media tends to keep bringing it up. If and when the federal attorney prosecuting Rezko brings such evidence to the public’s attention, the media will be welcome to discuss it.
If I could have a chat with the democrats, I would suggest taking the higher road. Particularly, Hilary Clinton. In the past month, she has shown herself in a way that has made many people in her own party dislike her. For now, if I were her, I would worry less about this already-lost race and focus on improving her approval rating for now and for the future. While I would prefer a democratic administration after the last 8 years of diminishing democracy, I would prefer a president people like instead of another president with a record-low approval rating, like “W”.
