Democrats double down on progressive vision with Hillary love affair

We are a full three years away from the 2016 presidential election, but the Democrats are already looking forward to the inauguration of Hillary Clinton.

As reported today in The Hill,

Fifty-six Democratic lawmakers say they would endorse Hillary Clinton for president if she launches a 2016 White House bid, according to a survey. Twenty-two congressional Democrats had already publicly endorsed Clinton. An additional 34 members told The Hill that if Clinton runs, they would back her in the Democratic primary.

Here’s the complete list.

The total represents more than 20 percent of the 253 Democrats in the House and Senate. It is also more than half of the lawmaker endorsements Clinton received in 2008. One Senate Democratic aide said, “You want us to comment on whether the senator supports a candidate who hasn’t declared, in a race that isn’t underway and in which no one is running?”

It might be absurd, but perhaps there are those who don’t want to end up on the Clinton “enemy list.” In fact two members who were on Clinton’s so-called enemies list during her presidential campaign have already endorsed her for 2016: Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Rep. Robert Andrews (D-N.J.).

But what exactly are these Democrats supporting? Just recently Hillary Clinton admitted Benghazi was her greatest regret. What exactly about Benghazi does Mrs. Clinton regret? Does she regret abandoning an American Ambassador and three others to die? Does she regret not being truthful about who denied requests for additional security? Does she regret being complicit in the lie of blaming this “spontaneous demonstration” on some crude anti-Islam video trailer? Does she regret using taxpayer dollars to apologize to the Muslim world about a video which we know had nothing to do with Benghazi? Does she regret the statement she made before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in relation to the “preventable” deaths of Americans, “what difference at this point does it make?”

There is blood on the hands of Hillary Rodham Clinton and anyone supporting her is complicit in the murder, lies, and deceit that is Benghazi. It would be a travesty if she is elected to the highest office in the land.

I find it interesting that Bill and Hillary Clinton were in attendance at the inauguration of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Apparently the Clintons are embracing the far left progressive socialist agenda as they position for a 2016 run, knowing the Democrat party is not a centrist party — as reflected in the devotion to the failing agenda of Barack Obama and celebration of de Blasio and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Hillary Clinton has no accomplishments for which to run for President of the United States, a precedent established by the current occupant. So let’s be honest, presidential elections are not about competence, ability, integrity, or character anymore. They have devolved into a grand political American Idol contest — and Democrats know this.

Barack Obama was, and still is, an empty suit but he is the “first black president” and any opposition is classified as racist. Hillary Clinton will run solely on being the “first woman president” and any opposition will be classified as sexist, misogynist, and part of the war on women.

Leadership matters little, while likeability and “rock star appeal” have taken preeminence. Image trumps substance and deception overrules truth. Welcome to the new America — at least the new progressive socialist vision of America.

With three years still to go in his presidency, Barack Obama has become irrelevant and the popular Left has anointed Hillary.

I hope each and every American will repeat this mantra: fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. We must not be fooled again! And we must begin to stem this progressive tide in 2014.
