Hillary Clinton appeared on Letterman last night, as if to remind Republicans everywhere of an immutable fact: It could be worse.
Asked what a first time voter should do, Hillary Clinton describes what she thinks a President of the United States ought to be like. Suffice it to say that I disagree, strongly.
Here’s a link if the embedded clip doesn’t work. Transcript:
CLINTON: You want to feel like the person you’re voting for actually cares about you. You know, actually wants to help you, you know. You know, they might actually get up in the morning and think, “Gosh, you know, what am I gonna do to get somebody a job or health care for somebody. And that’s the kind of heartfelt connection that I see in people as I go around.”
I don’t want any of that. I don’t give a rip if the POTUS “cares for me.” That’s what my family, friends and church is for. I certainly don’t want a president who thinks part of his or her job is getting me a job. I’ll do that myself, thankyouverymuch. I just want the government to get in the way of the bad guys and out of the way of everybody else.
Hillary Clinton is cloaking her vision in touchy-feely language, but she basically wants to run your life.
