Clinton Points Out Obama's Failures

In Hillary Clinton's speech tonight, she sounded more like someone running against President Obama rather than someone who wants to be seen as being Obama's third term.

She said:

"And so our next president needs to be ready to face three big tasks. First can you make positive differences in people's lives? Second, can you keep us safe? Third, can you bring our country together again?"

Bring us together? Wasn't Obama supposed to have been the post-racial President? Wasn't he going to be the one who united us as a nation?


"Families deserve a president who will fight for the things that are our priorities at home but too often aren't priorities in Washington: affordable child care, paid family leave, and, something we have waited for long enough, equal pay for equal work for women."

Equal pay for equal work for women? Didn't Obama solve that with the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009?

"And above all, above all, hard working Americans across our country deserve a president with both the ideas and the know how to create good jobs with rising incomes right here in our country."

I thought Obama had fixed the economy. I thought unemployment under Obama was at an all time low. What's to fix, Hillary?

According to her website, "Hillary believes that strengthening our infrastructure is critical to boosting wages and making our economy productive and competitive. That’s why she has announced a $275 billion, 5-year plan to revitalize our nation’s bridges, roads, public transit systems, and other public works".

Didn't Obama fix our infrastructure problems when he called for a $850 Billion Infrastructure Spending Plan to Jolt Economy?

Here in Philippines, it's an election year. You can tell because money is being spent to repair roads and bridges through out the country. The elected officials fix the roads in order to get reelected. The difference in the U.S. is that the pols there promise to repair the infrastructure after the election. Of course, those promises go unfulfilled. At least in Philippines, the roads do get repaired every four years.

As an aside, I posted a photo of Clinton dressed in orange. She may need to get used to wearing orange colored clothes soon, although the clothes put together by her prison tailor may not fit her as well. Regarding Hillary's supporters, not only does Gullible Sound Like "Oranges", it looks like Oranges too.
