“Like Obama as a human being, at least insofar as we’re seeing the real Obama. His personality seems to be appropriately presidential — measured, moderate, but definitely in charge. He thinks before he speaks and acts — sort of the opposite of McCain. But his statements on foreign affairs make it clear that he has absolutely no idea how such matters are conducted and what the repercussions of the policies he has announced would actually be. And on the war, his position is to kick victory in the butt and go off in search of a nice, permanent, devastating defeat.
“Despise everything about Hillary that I don’t active hate. She’s a bribe-taker (cattle futures), a liar, a complete phony. (‘Oooh, look at me, I cried again! I can feel my own pain! I’m a real woman!’) Her entire political qualification consists of saying I Do to Bill Clinton and then not divorcing him any of the thousand times he deserved it. In short, she’s a ‘stand by your man and he’ll get you into the Senate and back into the White House’ kind of woman. She’s the anti-feminist candidate. And she’s absolutely terrifying on health care (‘We’ll just have to make you stay healthy’) and the war (‘We’ve got to hurry up and wreck this victory George W. Bush has managed to bring us!’).
“What a nightmare.”
