Joe Biden: Racism not to blame for Clinton loss

Democrats are finally beginning to put the blame of the election loss on the one person it belongs: Hillary Clinton. In an interview on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden identified the reason Hillary Clinton’s campaign just couldn’t connect with voters – she had no “vision” about why she was actually running.

“I don’t think she ever really figured it out,” Biden said. “And by the way, I think it was really hard for her to decide to run.”

Clinton’s decision to run did not reflect raw ambition or a desire to move back to the White House, he said, calling those characterizations  of her unfair. Instead, he said, he saw her decision to run as ultimately stemming from a sense of duty and her belief that her victory “would have opened up a whole range of new vistas to women” in a similar way that Obama’s had for African Americans.

“She thought she had no choice but to run. That, as the first woman who had an opportunity to win the presidency, I think it was a real burden on her,” he said.

This had been a criticism of Clinton from the beginning of the campaign from supporters and detractors alike, as political observers on both sides have noted that Clinton seemed to have little persuasive message other than the historic nature of her candidacy.

    How about AND she refused to say she would support our constitution, AND called half of us “a basket of deplorables” AND said our religions would “have to” change their beliefs to suit her agenda” AND SHE ADORED the woman who began Planned Parenthood with the spoken purpose of destroying the black race in America, AND HOW ABOUT HER SOCIALIST AGENDA SIMILAR TO OBAMA’S BUT WORSE?

    Joe smoe and his “boss man” obummer have no flippin idea what “racism” is nor how it affects those of us in everyday life. I read the article to see if he was grounded but it proves just how flighty he is. The lack of respect, yes even for themselves, was engineered by the present administration. We require leadership that is open and compelling us all to unite, not divide us.

    You know there is something terribly wrong with partisan, political leadership when the substance of the platform deals with “freedom of choice” issues which have no pertinence in government at all. For far too long, the democrat party has represented little more than the variations and aberrations of sexual behavior as rights. People are tired of this kind of irrelevant, offensive nonsense. Clinton was the personification of the feminist, anti-normalcy candidate who attempted to justify the alienation of the unalienable and further divide the country over fundamental issues of law and order. The vision of “diversity” which democrats have espoused and practiced is a divisive one which does not consider the factors of serious, historical, irreconcilable differences in fundamental belief systems which have been the reason for the creation of countries with the commonality factors of language, religion, ethnicity, race or culture uniting people in faith, trust and mutual understanding. The notion of an innocuous innocence in our common humanity is lost in the offensive nature of the concomitant factors of economic goals and religious beliefs which justify criminal actions to achieve them. Democrats, in their liberal tolerance for “crap happens,” have perpetuated avoidable lawlessness with a tragic disregard for collective, public instruction and education in basic morality and ethics which would prevent many of the social problems which they have, conversely, championed for political advantage. The fundamental schism in the U.S. is over the law and obedience to it as the principal factor to beneficial order in society. Until the democrats adopt the morays which provide for “equal justice,”they will be rejected for the purposelessness which they represent. Government can not fulfill its primary task of national security with the modus operandi that “for every rule, there is an exception,” and it chooses to represent the exception. The Constitution discriminates against those who wish to represent that which is illegal, in order to make it legal. What is more significant is that there is no cessation of cost and natural consequences when laws are changed to allow the behaviors which have costs and consequences, despite legalization. That is the legacy of the current administration and it is offensive.
