Don’t expect any actual vision from Hilary, informs Francis Menton of the Manhattan Contrarian.
She just stands for the absolutely conventional thinking of the unthinking left — more money out of the infinite taxpayer fountain to fund my friends and cronies to create every new program they can think of and to fix every known human problem.
We know that she has no interest whatsoever in rocking the government gravy boat. We know that she deeply believes in the main project of the Left, which is to bring social justice and equality to the world through government action and crony capitalism.
Rather than discussing any actual issues in the election or promoting her own policy proposals, Hillary’s campaign events focus on trying to scare her potential supporters about Donald Trump.
Dick and I are on the early leg of our road trip between Newport and Key West. Yes, counting lawn signs. Traveling through small burbs and villages, we see plenty of Trump signs, most likely endorsed by the people who own or work the countless small businesses we see along the way. It’s in the “intellectual centers”–larger urban areas and university settings–where Clinton signs dominate. There seems to be “near total unanimity among the government-funded and government-cradled sectors of the economy (federal and state government workers, teachers, academia, crony capitalists, unions) in favor of Hillary,” writes Mr. Menton.
If you struggle to understand the overreaching vision of Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Obama, don’t worry. “There isn’t one,” points out Holman Jenkins in the WSJ. “They exist to deliver the wish-list of Democratic lobby groups for more power over the people of the United States. Period.”
