Presidential Hopelessness

I ask myself, me who’s so proudly patriotic, will I even bother to vote for our next president.  The alleged choices, the American Evita, to quote author, Christopher Anderson, or a callous cockatoo who needs a chronic dose of mousse.  images

Who will it be, the least annoying, the one you hate less…the either or of evil?

I’ve read so many exposes on Hillary Clinton unmasking her many flaws I could lecture.  She and her husband seem to live by their own set of rules free of conscience conducting their lives like Bonnie and Clyde.  Should outlaws run our country with its illustrious lineage, her noble predecessors who will now be tainted by association?

And how about The Donald in the White House so mean, so black and white.  Why don’t we just exhume Stalin who also had hair issues.

On a personal note, one of my dearest friends lives, as a rent-stabilized tenant, in one of Donald Trump’s buildings, and when I say he’s been harassed, forced repeatedly into court with mounting legal fees, it would blow your mind.

Another girl I know in-between wives, dated him and said, he was the most arrogant man she had ever known making her cry to the point where she changed her number.  If he could do that to a well-seasoned blonde, think what he’d do to America.

How did we end up with such menacing candidates with more than a little larceny in their blood?

Washington, Lincoln and the two Roosevelt’s dust are kicking up dust in rightful protest.

Voting for Hillary to support women just doesn’t feel like enough for me.  I know she’s smart as was Bill when he took the helm.  And if this was France, that famous blowjob would be much less legendary as her choice to absorb the blow, pun intended.  But we aren’t so casual in that department, and whether that’s good or bad, really doesn’t matter.  What does matter, is appointing a just, capable person we trust to lead.

Donald Trump frankly scares me, much more than Hillary because he’s such a loose gun.  I’m sure the NRA will welcome him with open firearms, Tom Selleck heading the pack.

Imagining his foreign policy makes what little hair I have stand on end, and when at the onset of his run, I thought, no way, he’d ever have a chance.  Well you know what, after hearing people talk and seeing his daily endorsements by men you thought had brains, now I’m not so sure.

So who will it be?  Who shall we choose… the least annoying, the one you hate less…the either or of evil?    images-1  images-3

I really don’t know, but what I do know is, we as a country, are in trouble.

    Paul Simon allegedly wrote “American Tune” when Nixon was elected. I think Chris Rea’s “Road To Hell” might be more appropriate for the present batch. Every democratic country shows a degree of arrogance when choosing a leader: our country, our choice. And maybe that’s not altogether a bad thing: democratic rights were hard won. But I say to the American People: do you really care so little about what the rest of the world thinks, as to consider these clowns?

    Nixon had great foreign policy, but was paranoid. I have no idea what to expect from our two foremost candidates, and depending on their first four years I may have to move.

    I try to stick my head in the sand and avoid the subject when H is glued to the TV most nights absorbed with one or the other. America is between a rock and a hard spot right now! ~Elle

  4. We will survive. The president position doesn’t have as much power as it used to. Congress stalls everything. Having a party implode may be the best thing to happen. The phoenix rises from the ashes or so they say. Cruz terrifies me more than either of these two.

    We all survived Reagan, the most dangerous and morally bankrupt American President who ever held the office. Peggy Noonan and her writing will always be tainted by that association.


    • She writes so highly of him. Just finished her book of essays and she did, dazzle me so. But, loyalty, even if it’s slanted, needs to be admired. She’s very brave in her prose. Have no idea what she thinks of Trump. Pretty sure, she’s no Hillary lover after reading her book.

    A crisis of leadership if ever there was one. It’s the same everywhere now, I think; a choice between the devil and the deep blue sea.


  7. The republican party, with their uprising media sources over the past 8 years, have been spewing daily hate. I guess they didn’t see that hate Karma coming back to bite them in the ass.
    I’m embarrassed by it all.

  8. Well, I’m still holding out hope for Bernie. Did you see the Last Week Tonight clip about Donald Trump? It was pretty good. (

  9. Trying to choose between two corrupt politicians is like trying to choose between two politicians—it’s such an impossible task! I keep telling myself we’re a marvelous country with a lot of marvelous people who aren’t bankers. So why can’t we find any really good lawyer people with lots of money to lead us? Oh wait…maybe that’s our problem. 😀

  10. I look at all of it and I think that my choice comes down to Trump. I know you don’t like him at all and that may be justified. However, I want someone in there who will fight the Congress and the Idiots (they may be the same) and, at least, talks like he is on our side. The other Republicans are a joke. I believe it is Cruz who I look at and think “Just shut up!” For me, I choose the fighter and the loose cannon. With what we have now, I figure it still can’t really get worse. I wouldn’t vote for Hillary if she paid me (well, if she paid me a LOT!).
