There’s really no need to delve into the overwhelming support for the Democrats’ heir apparent–a coronation eight years in the making–displayed at Cornell and in Ithaca. Even Cornell’s Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Robert Harrison, is all in for the Clinton machine–he’s the Clinton Global Initiative’s CEO. (By the way, the Clinton Global Initiative is just as defunct and crony-ridden as the Clinton State Department.)
We have to wonder why there’s all this support, though. Don’t Cornellians like progress, innovation, new ways of thinking, expanding horizons? Usually, yes, but none of those words describe their idolized candidate. For the past 20 years, from Hillarycare to Benghazi to the “lost” emails, what has Hillary Clinton have to show for herself?
With Hillary Clinton, it’s either failure, hypocrisy, or lies.
Well, I guess there’s no need to be so hard on her. After all, she’s faced serious hardship in the recent past. After her husband’s presidency, the Clintons were “dead broke” and struggled to pay for their “mortgages for houses” and private school for their daughter.
Maybe her total inability to relate to Americans outside of the D.C. Beltway and high-level donor class is because she can’t get around. After all, she hasn’t driven a car since 1996.
Clearly, Hillary Clinton has demonstrated her inability to relate to average Americans. She has precluded herself from claiming any expertise in foreign policy, and her populist economic policy can’t be trusted. Her friendly relations with countries like Saudi Arabia negate her claims that she is fighting for women’s or gay rights.
That doesn’t leave much.
But leave it to Cornell to party like it’s Slope Day.
