Hillalry! Oh, Dear Me.

I really, really, really want to live to see a woman become President of the United States.  But, as I have said before, I'm not sure Hillary! is the one. 

It's not that I don't think she's qualified.  I do.  I think she is far more qualified than any of the Republican clowns who are running.  And, she has done a great job as Secretary of State.  There's no doubt she works hard at whatever endeavor she chooses.

But, when I think of having to endure another year watching the Republicans unjustly accusing her of everything under the sun, I don't think I can stand it. And, then, when she wins, we'll have to listen to the constant carping for the next four or eight years.  We've had enough of that with President Obama. Of course, most of it with him was pure racism, but with Hillary! it's going to be Benghazi, which didn't amount to any wrong-doing on her part, and failing that, there will be  those silly e-mails, which won't amount to a hill of beans, and failing that, they'll start in on the Clinton Foundation and bring up all of Bill's short-comings,blah, blah, blah. And, if all that fails, they can attack her for simply being a woman. And, don't think the Republicans are above that.

Are we really ready?  Things would be so much easier with "Uncle" Joe or maybe we should "feel the Bern."  Let's face it, they are much more likeable and full of good humor. Bless her heart, Hillary! is just deadly serious and she comes across as not very likeable, no matter how many times her close friends assure us that she is a warm, even funny, lady. 

Well, I'll vote for whichever Democrat is nominated.  But, I'd sure love to have four or eight years of relative calm.

Stay tuned.

But I don't think Bernie could win. He is a Democratic Socialist (and makes no bones about it) and the Republicans would drive that into the ground.

If Hillary gets the nomination, I will vote for her.

Sadly, calm is a fat chance. What thick skins politicians need. We are just getting over the "birther" emails. I hate the meanness of politics. Still pulling for Hillary.

Go Betty, Go Hillary!


I don't care who it is as long as it's not a republican

Margie: I think you're right. And, I will vote for Hillary! But, I just hate what we'll have to go through to get her there.

Patti and Sister Three: I just think I'm getting too old for all this. lol

Jackie Sue: I'm with you there!

Hello Betty,
Just found your blog and enjoy your writing. I’m so sick and tired of all politicians, but, especially the ones who jump on a band wagon and are willing to take all and any publicity. Geez, Mike Huckabee! How could he possibly think publicly stating that he is willing to put religion above the law is going to resonate with the majority of Americans? At least I hope most of us are more intelligent than that!

By the way, Betty, I want to follow your blog but can’t find a way to do that?
