It appears that Democratic voters (at least in Iowa) aren’t as stupid as we thought. Enough people saw through Hillary’s charade to hand her a devastating blow last week. Now a desperate Clinton is showing her true colors by predictably telling the people of New Hampshire exactly what she thinks they want to hear.
The message coming out of Iowa was clear. Voters want change, and young voters in particular showed up in record numbers to support Obama, who they see as the most likely candidate to achieve real change. So, what do we hear the very next day from Clinton? She tells us that she’s been “an agent of change for 35 years” and that the young people of New Hampshire are near and dear to her heart.
Now, granted, this kind of crap has worked for Hillary (and Bill) for years, but as she becomes more desperate, it becomes more unlikely that anyone is going to miss the obvious truth – i.e. Hillary has no core beliefs whatsoever, and everything that comes out of her mouth is a direct reflection of what the polls tell her Americans want to hear.
The problem now, though, is that its hard for someone who has been the epitome of the lame, do-nothing Democratic establishment for years to convince anyone that she’s the outsider who can be counted on to deliver real change. And, by attempting to make such a transparently false representation of herself, she makes it obvious to more and more people just exactly how she operates – tell the people exactly what you think they want to hear, regardless of what is right or true, and hope that enough people are stupid enough to believe you. Well, it appears that America’s Stupidity Quotient may finally have fallen to the point at which the Clinton Formula doesn’t work anymore. All I can say is its about time…
