“Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen.” -George Orwell

One of Ted Cruz's media lapdogs, Erick Erickson, felt the need to gush over Bill Clinton's speech at the Democrat National Convention on Tuesday night. Why? Nobody really knows. Certainly it's a strange thing to do for someone who apparently considers himself the conscience of the conservative movement. Even MSNBC's Rachel Maddow described the speech as "controversial...shocking and rude."
It's no secret that Bill Clinton has been a very successful politician. But why make the effort of writing such a glowing review for a Democrat - any Democrat - on your conservative site? I'm thinking that if Trump were to compliment Slick Willy's failed attempt at humanizing the Hildabeast Erickson would then condemn it as the worst speech of all time. Suddenly Bill Clinton is admirable?
But, whatever. Squee!
The party of family values has just nominated a man on his third wife with numerous affairs and they are pitting him against a woman whose husband routinely cheated on her, but they kept their marriage together. Republicans are prone to cast aspersions on the Clinton marriage. "They did it for power" or "she stuck to him for her own benefit" are the most common ones. But in a day and age where marriages crumble and kids wind up spread all over between parents and step parents, the Clintons kept their marriage together. Judge not. They swore a holy vow and, though Bill broke the fidelity part, they have kept the bonds of marriage between them that Trump has so easily cast off.
That was a good speech. Bill Clinton is still the guy you want to have a beer with. He paraded through a tour of states on what Hillary had done for the little guy. He talked about their marriage. He completely skipped 1998. But he came to rehabilitate Hillary's image in the eyes of the American people and I suspect the old charmer charmed a good number of people.
I do not think his speech was as effective as Michelle Obama's...but he is one hell of a politician. You gotta respect his game.Oh my!
