Hillary and Bill Clinton steamrolled into Iowa yesterday to lend support and endorsement fellow Democrat, Sen. Tom Harkin, reported The Huffington Post. At the Iowa senator’s annual steak fry fundraiser, Hillary alluded to her “supposed” run for the presidency in 2016, which would effectively commit our country to further Wall Street control and corporate favoritism.
“Now when Tom Harkin called and asked me to come, I have to admit I wasn’t sure what to day,” said Clinton. “I’ve got a few things on my mind these days. First, and most importantly, Bill and I are on constant grandchild watch. I’m calling Chelsea every five minutes to make sure things are alright. There’s that other thing [her alleged White House run]. It is true I am thinking about it.”
There has been growing speculation, much of it prompted by Clinton herself, about a 2016 presidential bid. Lots of people are jazzed about a possible Hillary 2016 ticket. Many of these excited people are those who have not shaken their Bill Clinton hangover.
The years of Mr. Clinton brought America the group we know as the New Democrats. These are the Democrats that play like liberals when it comes to civil liberties and social issues. However, when it comes to financial regulation and Wall Street, the New Democrats come with a price tag, and the Clinton’s are at the forefront of corporate-owned Democrats.
Hillary is a hypocrite. She pushes populism, but shills for Wall Street monsters like Goldman Sachs. Sachs has given anywhere between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation, and the bank gave her approximately $200,000 on two occasions to speak to Wall Street banksters, Mother Jones reported. Wall Street was also a “key constituency” during her eight years as a New York senator.
If Hillary runs and get elected, we can expect four more years of Wall Street and corporate love from the White House. We would have yet another president who serves as a mere figurehead, while the Wall Street money is calling the shots.
