Even Establishment Democrats Don’t Miss Hillary Clinton: Feb 6, 2017

I thought it would be a good idea to write a very short post to bring in some comments, while I am finishing up a much larger one. So here it is..

Have you noticed that democrats (even the establishment types) have stopped talking about Hillary Clinton? You might remember that there was a time, especially in the 1st month after she lost to Trump, when democrats and their paid shills in media could not stop talking about how much better things would have been if HRC had won the election. In that month or so- there was no end to posts, tweets, articles and interviews which extolled her “competence” and “brilliance” in comparison to Trump. You literally could not turn on the TV or visit MSM “news” sites without at least a few allegedly “smart” pundits bemoaning her loss to Trump.

Fast forward to today, a couple of weeks after Trump has formally assumed the presidency. As most of you know, some of his recent executive orders and general policy directions have been controversial- to put it mildly. I mean.. there have been more and bigger demonstrations against Trump in the first 2 weeks of his presidency than there were against Obama in his 8 years- though the later broke almost every singe campaign promise he made in 2008 and 2012. But have you noticed that there is something missing in all those public demonstrations against Trump.

Yes, I am talking about the relative absence of any specific reference to Hillary Clinton- especially anything which suggests that she would have been a better president than Trump. I find it interesting that almost all protests against Trump focus on his policies or decisions, rather than how HRC would have been a much better president. Even establishment democrats now seem to have largely given up comparing him to her. You can still hear many say that ‘Bernie Would Have Won’ but almost nobody is saying ‘Hillary Would Have Been Better’- because the former statement is true while the later is an obvious lie- like HRC.

What do you think? Comments?

    The establishment sunk Sanders on purpose. It was supposed to be Billery vs Jeb! Trump was never really a winner per se, the election results were more about the establishment’s unwillingness to provide a canidate the plebs could stomach. And they have the nerve to call the alt right anti semitic!

    It baffles me as to why the leftards are not protesting the corruption of their chosen party. According to Congressman Tulsi Gabbard, even she resigned as a party chair because of the crap the DNC was pulling with the primaries. And where all these leftard protesters when the Kenyan Muslim Gay Mulatto was bombing all those Muslims just like Bush II, Clinton, and Bush I?

      You ignore the Bernie Sanders supporters who are still protesting the overt and corrupt favoratism being shown HER! throughout the primary election. The battle lines are now focused around the next set of party leaders, and as such are not exactly a priority news item of interest to the corporatist media.

    Saw a post on Facebook where she said “the future is female”. The pathetic CONservatives just want everyone (men of color and women) to stay in “their place” and allow white men and CONservatives to shit all over them.

      Sounds like she’s getting ready for a speaking tour to address interested parties on how to lose an election.

      It seems that the leading CONservatives want socialism for themselves, and market capitalism for everyone else.
      And if you disagree with “the future is female”, they (think they) hold the card of “I won’t have sex with you, and I’ll tell other women about you”.
      Of course, they ignore the reality that until a woman can afford a house and kids on her own, she needs to find a man (to put up with her nonsense).

      There’s an old joke along those lines:
      A woman never stops worrying until she gets married,
      A man never starts worrying until he gets married …
