Thomas Hobson, an
owner in the 15th century, offered his customers two unappealing
choices: either to take the least desirable horse or none at all. Six
centuries later, we still refer to no-win (i.e., lose-lose) options as
the Hillary-Obama race!
boggles the mind that out of over-300-million American citizens, the
best that the Democrat Party can offer its leftist followers is the
choice between a pathologically lying socialist and a Marxist in liberal
looking at this near-empty glass in a rosier light, people who love
America can be grateful that the longest presidential campaign in
history has allowed them to see and hear the real Hillary Clinton
and the real Barack Obama, and not the fabricated "packages” that
their spinmeisters – including the leftwing media – have so relentlessly
tried to conceal.
We’ve Learned About Hillary?
lying is nothing new. Even before her Arkansas days, Hillary was known
for her ugly untruths. In fact, when she was 27 – part of her famous
"35-years of experience” – she worked on the Watergate committee
investigating Pres. Richard Nixon. After the investigation was over, the
man who supervised her work,
general counsel and Chief of Staff of the House Judiciary Committee,
Jerry Zeifman, fired Hillary and refused to give her a letter of
recommendation – one of only three people he had fired in his 17-year
According to an article by author
Dan Calabrese, Zeifman
said he fired Hillary "because she was a liar.
She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the
Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the
rules of confidentiality.”
as no surprise to anyone who survived the scandal-ridden,
impeachment-doomed Bill Clinton presidency – during which NY Times
columnist William Safire called Hillary "a congenital liar.” Who can
forget the red-phone lady’s serial lies concerning:

capture the Hispanic vote)
clueless about her husband’s pardons of the Hasidic community’s crooks
(the better to capture the Jewish vote)
jobs for upstate New Yorkers
big et al. here!
Hillary’s lying was a preamble to her lifetime ambition of becoming the
first female U.S. president. Her run proves that repetition aids
learning. After decades of chronic confabulation, she has now raised to
a virtual art form the non-truth, the fictional, the exaggerated, and,
let us not omit, the bald-faced lie!

is nothing new to Hillary. What is frightening is the degree to which
her followers accept this glaring character flaw, in essence saying: We
know she’s a liar – but she’s our liar! So much for the character
and integrity of her liberal acolytes.
learn that Hillary is ear-piercingly shrill,
"the screech on the
blackboard,” according to lifetime liberal Tom Hayden: We
already knew that. Nor that she and her "team” are mean-spirited: We
already knew that. Nor that the woman who wants to run our country is
among the most incapable people on the national scene, having run a
ruinous, debt-ridden, poorly-planned – and, I predict, losing –
campaign: We already knew that.
know that Hillary the millionaire can’t wait to "take your money away”
(her words) from the other wealthy people in our country who manufacture
goods, employ our citizenry, donate multimillions to charity, create our
new century’s innovations, and – most important to her – contribute not
millions but billions to the Clinton Library and Foundation.
thing that liberals have learned – that the rest of the country has
always known – is that Hillary and her husband are racists! It is not
only Bill’s splenetic rages and paranoid rants about Obama, but also
Hillary and her surrogates who have told the electorate that "Obama
(read black man) can’t win.” Strange, isn’t it, coming from a woman
behind in the popular and delegate vote count?
African-American columnist Bob Parks has remarked, "the
Clintons may be doing more to divide our nation than any macaca moment
could ever do [and] doing this on purpose.”
little secret that liberals pretend doesn’t exist is that their
decades-long embrace of the welfare system, affirmative action,
public-school-and-other unions, diversity and multiculturalism, were
(and are) all calculatedly designed to keep society’s "victims” in their
assigned and dependent roles, the better to promise them everything and
deliver them – as they always have – nothing but more victimhood.
line, we really haven’t learned much about Hillary that we didn’t
already know, except that the unprettiness of her dishonesty and
ambition is even more egregious than we thought possible.
We’ve Learned About Obama?

Obama – with his appealingly even temperament and golden way with words
– has not refined the art of lying as Hillary has, although you’d never
know this from sites like

of steeping himself and being steeped in the world of Chicago "machine”
politics. But for the sheer length of this numbingly-repetitive,

deep ties to America-loathing terrorists.
And what are we to make
of the fear and loathing Obama inspires from dozens if not hundreds of
prominent black intellectuals from the worlds of politics, academia, and
Among them is columnist
Ken Blackwell, who comments on Obama’s "vision” for our nation:
▪ National security: "Over the summer, Mr. Obama talked
about invading Pakistan, a nation armed with nuclear weapons; meeting
without preconditions with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who vows to destroy
Israel and create another Holocaust; and Kim Jong II, who is murdering
and starving his people, but emphasized that the nuclear option was off
the table against terrorists – something no president has ever taken off
the table since we created nuclear weapons in the 1940s….Mr. Obama is a
foreign-policy novice who would put our national security at risk.
▪ Economic policy: "For all its faults, our health care
system is the strongest in the world. And free trade agreements…have
made more goods more affordable so that even people of modest means can
live a life that no one imagined a generation ago. Yet Mr. Obama
promises to raise taxes "on the rich.”
▪ Social Security: "Raise taxes.” Medicare: "Raise taxes.”
Obama’s "solution to everything is to have government take it over. Big
Brother on steroids, funded by your paycheck.”
▪ Social issues: Mr. Obama said that, "Christian leaders
have hijacked – hijacked – Christianity. He is pro-partial birth
abortion, and promises to appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule
any restriction on it unconstitutional. He espouses the abortion views
of Margaret Sanger, one of the early advocates of racial cleansing.”
And, in Illinois, "he refused to vote against a statewide ban on all
handguns in the state.”
"These are radical left, Hollywood, and San Francisco
values,” writes Mr. Blackwell of
the most liberal of the
100 members of the U.S. Senate,
"not Middle America values.”
Black scholar and
writer Thomas Sowell remarks: "Obama is also part of a long tradition on
the left of being for the working class in the abstract, or as people
potentially useful for the purposes of the left, but having disdain or
contempt for them as human beings.”
Sowell has also said: "There is no reason why someone as arrogant, foolishly clever and
ultimately dangerous as Barack Obama should become president –
especially not at a time when the threat of international terrorists
with nuclear weapons looms over 300 million Americans.”
And Shelby Steele,
author, writer and filmmaker says: "In the end, Barack Obama's candidacy
is not qualitatively different from Al Sharpton's or Jesse Jackson's…his
run at the presidency is based more on the manipulation of white guilt
than on substance. Sharpton and Jackson were `challengers,’ not
bargainers. They intimidated whites…Mr. Obama flatters whites, grants
them racial innocence, and hopes to ascend on the back of their
gratitude…two sides of the same coin. His public persona thrives on a
manipulation of whites (bargaining) and his private sense of racial
identity demands both self-betrayal and duplicity. His is the story of a
man who flew so high, yet neglected to become himself.”
disagree with Steele’s last sentence. From Obama’s writing, it is clear
which "identity” he has chosen. From his book, "Dreams of My Father,”
Obama has the following to say:
I ceased to
advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, which I began to
suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.
I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and
animosity against my mother’s race.
It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your
loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.
"The Audacity of Hope”: "I will stand with the Muslims should the
political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
Hobson gave his
customers two bad choices. In 2008, Democrats have given us two choices
that are potentially disastrous for our country. I hope that keeping
both of them far away from the Oval Office will be, for most voters –
including Independents – the proverbial "no-brainer!”
