Do Democrats even LIKE Hillary?

Last week we posted a story about the cozy relationship Hillary and Bill Clinton have with the CEO of Columbia’s largest private oil company and we asked this question;

…are the UAW, the AFL-CIO, and the USW going to support a candidate for president who has taken millions and millions of dollars from a company (and its CEO) which has a history of busting unions at the point of a rifle?

Are they?

The article did well in terms of traffic but of particular interest to me was the tone of some of the comments from readers at the end of the article. Among some of our more liberal commentors I sensed just a bit of real unease with Ms. Clinton.

After millions of dollars were pledged by the oil company to the Clinton Foundation Hillary changed her position on U.S.-Colombia trade pact.

Seriously Democrats is Hillary Clinton really going to be your nominee? So she’s taken millions of dollars from the head of an oil company which has strong connections to the Colombian military, which also just happened to “round up” the striking workers of Pacific Rubiales, the company in question.

I mean, I get that she is a woman, and that she has name recognition, and that she has long been the presumed nominee. But guys, I may not agree with you on most things but this is an integrity thing. At least don’t throw in with someone who many of my friends on the “Left” would probably call a union busting, fossil fuels promoting, political profiteer if she wasn’t named Hillary Clinton. At least stand for something lefties – other than cronyism.

More Crony Media: Reporters give Hillary Clinton a standing ovation

What are these reporters thinking? OK, I get that the old media is populated with generally statist big government leaning journalists, but given what we know Ms. Clinton has done (just recently) any objective person has to consider such an ovation as being in bad taste.  The email scandal which in theory could have jeopardized national security, the gifts from foreign governments and companies to the Clinton Foundation while Ms. Clinton was Secretary of State, the enormous “speaking fees” are all quite problematic. Is a standing ovation, particularly from “journalists” really warranted? I mean I think its pretty terrible that a group of reporters would give any politician a standing ovation, but Ms. Clinton? There is just no excuse. She has a history.

Hillary’s Gruber state of mind: ABC: The “honor system” will have to be implemented with regard to Clinton’s emails during her time as Secretary of State. (Video)

Hillary Clinton thinks, it’s fairly clear at this point, that the American people are idiots. That they can be duped. It depends on what the definition of “law” is.

Ms. Clinton, like her brother in bs Jonathan Gruber thinks that she is above the law, part of the ruling class, free to do as she wishes. She personally comes before the country, or the law, her former office, decency, or honor and she thinks the same stuff that flew in in the 1990s will fly again now.

Gawker: “Clinton used the email account ([email protected]) to conceal official correspondence.”

The GOP establishment seeks to suppress the grass roots, the “populists,” the people, again

The leadership within both major parties view the “populists” within their ranks as annoyances. Jeb Bush and his crowd and Hillary Clinton and her crowd have a similar disdain for the people who want actual change come 2016. Jeb and Hillary are the establishment. They are the anointed. They represent the long time infrastructure of their respective parties.

Vested interests within the parties know where they stand with both candidates. These interests know that the boat won’t really be rocked by either one. The people who run the parties are safe, so long as none of the rabble rousers slip through. The rabble rousers must be beaten down and beaten back.

50 Million Down The Tubes: How 17 Conservative PACs Are Spending Their Money (Reported by a conservative publication)

In 2013 we posted a speech given by firebrand political strategist Pat Caddell who argued that many of the political consultants during the Romney campaign were interested more in lining their pockets than in getting the former governor elected president. (I personally don’t think it made much of a difference, but who knows.)  The attached article seems to confirm that this sort of thing continues as the GOP gears up for the 2016 election.

This isn’t some hit piece. It comes from a website, Right Wing News, with legit conservative credibility. And for some groups the report is pretty damning.
