Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie – Oh, how the mighty may fall – WRIGHT

Really?  This is the best we can do?

Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie – Oh, how the mighty may fall

By Crystal Wright  –  Washington Times –  Annotated with Photos and Links by AskMarion

If you believe everything you read, Hillary Clinton is already President of the United States-in-waiting and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was the GOP’s predestined 2016 nominee.

Does this sound like 2012 or 2008 all over again?

Hillary thinks she’s owed the Democratic nomination because she’s a Clinton and has held every political office under the sun: first lady of Arkansas, FLOTUS, senator and secretary of state. And how about her days as an attorney, when she was fired from the Watergate investigation for lying and unethical behavior?

Of course if she never married her philandering husband, Bill Clinton, she never would have achieved any political stardom.

She’s all but anointed herself Queen, I mean, the 45th President of the United States of America. Politico reported she and her team of advisers already have an enemies list of Democrats who didn’t support in 2008 — or who otherwise crossed Queen Hillary.

Instead of arrogantly settling in to this “front-runner status” yet again, Hillary would be wise to remember the mighty do fall, America isn’t a monarchy. The best-laid plans can always go awry like they did in 2008 when Senator Barack Obama burst onto the scene and stole the nomination from Hillary.

Hillary & Obama In Secret Bilderberg Rendezvous at Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Va., site of the Bilderberg conference 2008… When the Decision May Have Been Made, by the Powers that be, to go with Barack instead of Hillary?  (Looking at this photo, its been a tough 5-years on both of them!) 

Two Marriages, Two Political Power Deals, One Big Question

Rather than building her own enemies list, Hillary should worry about the number of lists she’s on after the Benghazi debacle. While Secretary Clinton angrily asked members of Congress during a Hill hearing, “What difference does it make?” how four dead Americans died in Benghazi, Libya, the fact is it matters very much.  And it certainly matters to the parents of those killed!

Her petulant remark in 2013 doesn’t demonstrate the leadership, tenor or tone Americans and the world expect of a president.

Speaking of leadership, Gov. Christie doesn’t demonstrate it either. In a nearly two press conference expressing modest culpability over the bridge gate scandal, he spent more time talking about himself than anything. He didn’t come off as contrite.

Describing why his senior aides closed lanes on the George Washington Bridge to stick it to Democratic Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich for not endorsing Christie in his reelection, Christie said he took full responsibility for his staff but doesn’t micromanage people.

That doesn’t sound like a person who wants to become president, allowing people to freelance.

Christie also displayed his usual arrogance and bullish personality, mocking the Fort Lee mayor, traffic studies and a few other things during his monologue:

“Mayor Sokolich was never on my radar screen. . . . I wouldn’t have been able to pick him out of a lineup.”

“I probably wouldn’t know a traffic study if I tripped over it.”

“I am not a focus-group-tested, blow-dried candidate.”

Fish rots from the head down and Christie’s staff behaved the way they were allowed to behave, suggesting Christie created a culture where his employees thought bridge gate was something they could get away with, now they are awaiting subpoenas.

Bridgegate is even more amusing when viewed through the prism of Christie’s “I’m a better GOP than everyone else” speech during the Republican National Committee’s 2013 summer meeting.

Christie said:

“We need to stop navel gazing. There’s nothing wrong with our principles. We need to focus on winning again. There’s too much at stake for this to be an academic exercise. We need to win and govern with authority and courage.”

For someone who spends a lot of time telling America how great he is, steeped in Bridgegate, Christie looks more like the president of the class rather than President of the United States.

Hillary and Christie may want to hit the pause button in their political ambitions and not count their presidential eggs before they hatch. A lot can happen in two years; a lot already has!

And let’s not forget that we have an election in 2014 to focus on first with much on the line and much going on behind the scenes!!

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
