The Women Who Don’t Like Hillary

Friday, December 7, 2007 10:27 AM

By: Newsmax Staff.

Hillary Clinton is the first woman in U.S. history with a clear shot at winning the White House, but she’s suffering from a lack of support from what might otherwise be considered a solid Clinton base — upscale, college-educated women.
Surprisingly, polls continue to show that half of college-educated Democratic women do not support Hillary.

These “Hillary resisters” oppose her candidacy for a variety of reasons.

“For some, it’s visceral,” the Los Angeles Times observes.

“While they struggled to break through institutional barriers in the workplace, Clinton hitched her star to her man and followed him to the top. When his philandering imperiled his political career, she not only pulled him out of the fire but helped orchestrate attacks against his accusers.”

For other women, the opposition to the Clinton candidacy is purely political — they are disturbed by Hillary’s support for the Iraq war and her reluctance to take firm stands on some important issues.

On the Huffington Post blog, writer Nora Ephron included herself among the “Hillary resisters” and said these women “don’t trust her as far as you can spit.”

Feminist Jean Lloyd-Jones, a former Iowa legislator who feels Clinton is beholden to corporate interests and would have trouble winning the general election, told the Times: “I would be pleased to have a woman in the oval office, but Hillary Clinton is not my first choice.”

And Clara Oleson, a retired lawyer in Iowa who supports Barack Obama, said she takes offense at the assertions that she should vote for Hillary because she is a woman. “That is a phrase I have fought against my entire life,” she said.

Although Hillary garnered only 50 percent of the vote among college-educated women in an October Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll, that was actually an improvement over the 29 percent she collected in a June poll.

And many “Hillary resisters” say that in the end they would vote for Clinton if she does win the Democratic nomination, according to the Times, because “keeping a Republican out of the White House will become the paramount concern for Democrats, Hillary resistant or otherwise.”
Now Sir...I reprinted this to make a personal statement. It's no secret that this man emphatically does not like Hillary Clinton, hence forth to be referred to in this article as "The Hildebeast" or "Shillary", or as one TV talk show host refer's to her as "the Satanic Bitch". I can see someone voting for Shillary because they completely agree with her stand on certain issues. What I cannot fathom is folks who are Democrat, voting for her simply because they themselves are Democrat. Would they also vote for Adolf Hitler simply because he was the Democratic nominee? I'm obviously a Republican, but in the past I've voted a "split ticket" because I did not like what the Republican candidate running for office stood for, or what I perceived to be questionable ethical or moral shortcomings. To vote a straight party line regardless of the candidate is just plain ignorance....

BUT...what really frosts my cajones is when someone like one of my daughters who stated recently, "I'm voting for Hillary because she is a woman and it's about time we had a woman in the Whitehouse." Aaaargghhh.....

I will be the first to state that this nation is ready for a woman president...and, were that woman honorable and ethical, I would readily vote for her....BUT NOT THE HILDEBEAST!

Now come on people...most of you realize that in a great many cases, the old saying "Where there is smoke...there is fire", is right on, and almost certainly must realize that with the dozens and dozens of accusations of criminal acts, wrong doings, investigations and personal vindictiveness and treachery...there just MUST be something there....and Pullleeeaase... don't by into the "It's a vast Right Wing Conspiracy" thing......Think About It.

...I think I know who Monica is votin fer....

...and my good buddy "fish" frum Kentucky sends this little beauty...

A particular USMC sniper was really good at his job, because he had devised an interesting method for drawing insurgents out into range.

He would yell out some insult at the enemy and when someone stood up to reply, Bang! One less insurgent!

After every mission his company commander would ask him, 'How many insurgents have you shot today?'

One particular day when asked about the number killed, he reported 'Five killed and I let one go.'

'Let one go?' roared the company commander. 'What do you mean, you let one go?'

'Well, I got myself dug in and yelled out 'Osama is a Homo!' This big insurgent popped up and yelled 'Hillary is a Bitch!'

'I just couldn't bring myself to shoot a fellow Republican!'

Addendum: Damn...why didn't I think of this afore....? It wurked SOOO well out in Nebraska... Hat-Tip...A Geezers Corner..
