A Clinton in my little town...


Hillary will be in my little town this morning.  At the bicycle shop owned by a very good friend.  He certainly didn't invite her.  He took over the old Post Office in town, remodeled it nicely, and moved his downtown bike shop 2 blocks to occupy it.  He is a great advocate and ambassador for my little town.  That is why she is coming to my friend's shop.  To "focus" on successful small business in Iowa, and by extension, America.  My friend has been successful at his business and at promoting our downtown area.  

He has been telling everyone that just because she is going to be there, sequestered in a private meeting with a hand selected few local small-businessmen in his shop, doesn't mean that he is supporting one political party over the other.

I know him well enough to know that he believes what he says.  I'm not sure that he understands that no matter what the truth is, appearances are everything...  Perhaps there are enough freaking Liberals in this area that the exposure will possibly do him good, from a bike business perspective.  Who knows?  :)

It isn't open to the public or to the media.  It is an incredibly arrogant Presidential candidate holding another non-public campaign function to prove how close she is to the people, and the only "media" allowed will be those who can be 100% trusted to portray her the way she wants to be portrayed.  All questions must be pre-approved.    That isn't news reporting, but hey, she is Hillary Clinton!  She makes the rules.

How fucked up is it that someone with her reputation and the legitimate suspicions of criminal activity corruption and incompetence in her past can run a viable campaign for the Presidency of the United States?  (I know, obama got elected twice, right?  Proves my point)  Her base will never ask that she be investigated at all but will clamor and clang to set the vetting bar so high that no Republican candidate can ever be seen as legitimate and worthy.   What has happened to Americans that they will even give this woman the time of day?

How many Republican-owned businesses are being used as Hillery campaign stops? Sounds like your friend protests too much.

genericviews... Actually, he protesteth not. Me, on the other hand, I protesteth a bit. :)

Why did he not tell her people to pound sand when they came around to vet possible locations?
He couldn't have been forced to allow this fucking circus in his shop, right? He had to have agreed to it?

Blue said...

No, I'm sure he wasn't forced or coerced in any way. This is America, after all. :) I'm sure that he was asked because of his newly remodeled shop and his downtown advocacy as well as his all around great guy personality.

My little town is a State University town, full of Liberals who trade at his shop. Being the capitalist that he is, he seized the opportunity... (I went to that University. Surprised I got out alive, or without being "converted"! ;)

It will all shake out and get back to normal soon. Its how it happens around here.

She was gone by 10 am. The "big" media were still downtown at 6 0'clock last night.

The FSA (Free Shit Army) that elected Obozo will do their best to elect this bitch too. Gotta keep those freebies coming.

Yup, the FSA is the largest standing army in the world! :)
