Change You Can’t Believe In

Clinton, Round 3

Dick Morris in today’s Town Hall, pointing out that The One is staffing up with as many Clintonistas as he can find, and then giving Shrillary the Secretary of State job. Horry Clap.

Apart from the breathtaking cynicism of the appointment lies the total lack of foreign-policy experience in the new partnership. Neither Clinton nor Obama has spent five minutes conducting any aspect of foreign policy in the past. Neither has ever negotiated anything or dealt with diplomatic issues. It is the blonde leading the blind.

Yeah, no kidding. Here’s your Change and your New Way in Washington: a total recycle.

Morris then points out the underbelly of the Obama = Lincoln meme that has been going around

In each case, the president acted because to bolster his ties with the factions of his own party because he feared how he would fare with his party in total control of Congress. Neither the Republicans of 1861 nor the Democrats of 1992 saw the president from their own party as their natural leaders.

(
Peiper sent me a news clipping the other week from the UK; a full page article titled “A Lincoln for our time”. It was thoroughly disgusting.

There is another respect, too, in which American ideals, to which custodians like Lincoln clung in the face of bitter reality, have at long last been vindicated. Government “of the people, for the people, by the people” now has indeed a better chance of not perishing from the earth. For the election embodied the victory of democratic optimism over cynical manipulation.

)

Now we all know that Dicky has some real issues with the Clintons. He was their favorite whore for a long time, and he was the guy behind all those polls that showed Bill how to “lead” from behind to stay popular. But then he got fired. And he’s still mad about it. But Mr. Morris does point out that Obama is taking one huge risk here that is almost certain to undercut him.

While Obama was not the early favorite of his party, he does not need to defer so ostentatiously to those who fought him for the nomination. His general election mandate clearly entitled him to name who he pleased. But he has chosen to nominate men and women with no loyalty to him and no real stake in his future.

And, standing above all his appointees, like a president-in-exile, is Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Hang on tight people. It’s gonna be a helluva ride.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
