Would Hildabeast rule any differently?
« on: July 16, 2017, 08:02:03 AM »
Yesterday’s New York Post offers up a modern urban fable by John Podhoretz, who claims that Hillary Clinton would be running essentially the same White House as Hairzilla, with the exception of Shrill gaining more Senate confirmations.

Give him credit --- he opens strong.

Let’s face it: With the exception of the Supreme Court appointment and confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, Trump has astoundingly little in the accomplishments column — especially for a president whose party controls both houses of Congress.

We’re nearing the end of July without a health-care reform bill. There’s no tax cut. Trump has his Cabinet in place but hundreds of sub-cabinet positions have yet to be filled. His flashy effort to restrict immigration from Muslim countries ran afoul of the courts and is only now being implemented in part.

Yes, Trump struck Syria in response to the use of chemical weapons in April — but President Hillary might well have done the same.

So Trump has gotten very little done. The same would have been true if Hillary had won. 

Well, Hairzilla did get a few judges appointed, but Podhoretz neglects that part. Or the economy soaring and unemployment dropping. He does babble on a bit without explaining how Hillary would woo more votes for nominees, despite a 4-GOP Senate majority. (I’ll give him a pass with insanely transparent trash like McCain pretending to be Americans --- those reliably anti-conservative Republicans we loathe so well.)

So then comes the comedy bit.

So what would have been different? For one thing, we would not be living through the insanely overheated Trumpian political atmosphere in Washington and throughout the culture.

Hillary is many things, and many not good things, but she is not a sower of chaos or the subject of infighting so constant that no one can even catch a breath before one weird story is displaced by another. She’s far too boring for that.

Hillary Rodham Clinton --- "not a sower of chaos”...?

It’s the Trump Era. I get my laughs where I find them.

Based on her performance as S of S and two failed campaigns she has proven she IS chaos.

Oh, I generally agree with that. Yesterday and the day before were news wastelands for me. I even managed to get one wrong by a couple of years. But never underestimate tabloids for cheap-'n'-easy bits like this one.

I sat for a full minute trying to remember ANYTHING else written by him, and can offer you zero information on his writing or viewpoint(s), other than above.

Pretty sure Hillary wouldn't be strong on energy, immigration, gutting the EPA, and maybe... just maybe would have nominated a radical to the SCOTUS.
