63. GOP Dedicated to Destroy

29 Jul

This is a commentary about some recent presidential election events and issues.

The Republicans have been dedicated to destroying many things, but most horrible is their abuse of Hillary Clinton since she started running for President. Not many complaints before that!

Can you imagine several years when all leaders of a major party were dedicated to telling vicious destructive lies about you to ruin your reputation; and their staff searching every minor detail of your life, then exaggerating and lying about everything they could find. This history is a tribute to the strength and tenacity that Hillary possesses. I have examined every accusation against her, and like most of those well-informed have concluded, nothing is there except for a few minor mistakes that ordinary intelligent people would make. What if Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, etc. were subjected to such intense examination, and someone exaggerated their mistakes. We know what happened to Donald Trump — thousands of really bad things were found — no exaggeration needed.

Michelle Obama’s speech was spectacular. All Democrats loved it.

Doug Elmets, who had been a speech-writer and advocate for President Reagan supports Hillary because Trump is “petulant” and “dangerously unbalanced.”

Bill Clinton’s speech last night was marvelous and I totally enjoyed his account of his courtship of Hillary. Despite a past conflict, it is so apparent he and Hillary have adored each other over the vast majority of their lives. He made a wonderful case for her lifelong efforts to help less fortunate people and her sincere interest in progressive ideas.

After the speech of President Obama, Hillary showed some genuine love for him. The look of gratitude and adoration on her face could not be faked and was remarkable. In fact I kept looking at Bill to see if he was jealous (not).

All the speeches at the Democratic Convention have been extremely positive and have been very supportive of Hillary. What a contrast with the dark, pessimistic, and untruthful speeches of the Republicans, especially the dismal speech of Trump.
His method is to re-write history to suit his needs, and then use altered facts to illustrate failures that only he can correct.

Some recent Trump LIES:
False: Our military capability is a disaster (truth: better than ever)
False: Hillary enabled Bill in his indiscretions (really ?)
False: Under the Iran deal, money from the USA treasury was given to Iran (Truth: the money was Iran’s, having been confiscated as apart of sanctions — it could not have been used for infrastructure or other USA works).
False: We got nothing under the Iran Nuclear Deal (several provisions prevent their development of a bomb.)
False: Wisconsin unemployment rate is 20%. (Truth: 4.6% in 2015)
False: He never accused President Bush of lying about WMD’s (recorded in transcript)
False: Muslims in New Jersey celebrated in the streets the 911 attacks (no evidence at all)
False: Trump University had an “A” rating from BBB (last operational rating in 2010 was a “D”)
False: 81% of murdered white folks were attacked by black people (truth:  most murdered by other whites)
An Internet search will list many more Trump lies.  I just watched Hillary’s great acceptance speech.  Final thought:  too many balloons.
