An Autopsy of the NYT's endorsement of Hillary Clinton


The New York Times endorsed Hillary Clinton for President, as well as John Kasich, who perhaps could be her running mate.

But the Times endorsement was curiously myoptic in its discussion of her virtues:

Mrs. Clinton is a strong advocate of sensible and effective measures to combat the plague of firearms;

There is a "plague" of firearms? Is it the plague of firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens? Does the plague extend to the firearms held by Hillary Clinton's secret service protectors?

Her economic proposals for financial reform reflect a deep understanding of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform act, including the ways in which it has fallen short. She supports changes that the country badly needs, like controls on high-frequency trading and stronger curbs on bank speculation in derivatives.

How is high-frequency trading a problem? Has high-frequency trading caused our $20 billion dollar debt, or our $200 billion dollar unfunded obligations? How will ending it solve these problems?

One of the most attractive parts of Mrs. Clinton’s economic platform is her pledge to support the well-being and rights of working Americans.

"Attractive" and "Clinton" should never be used in the same sentence. And how does raising taxes and regulations support working Americans?

Her lifelong fight for women bolsters her credibility in this area

Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones can attest to that.

Mrs. Clinton is keenly aware of the wage gap for women

She was also keenly aware of the wage gap for women in her own senate office.

Her knowledge comes from a commitment to issues like reproductive rights that is decades old. She was well ahead of Mr. Sanders in calling for repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which severely limits federal money to pay for abortions for poor women.

Why is the right to kill your baby a "reproductive" right? Shouldn't it be called an "unreproductive" right or a "baby killing" right? Why do women have the right to have other people pay to kill their own babies?

As secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton worked tirelessly, and with important successes, for the nation’s benefit

Really? Where was this, in Iran, Libya, Iraq, Syria, someplace else?

She was the secretary President Obama needed and wanted: someone who knew leaders around the world, who brought star power as well as expertise to the table.

Star power is good for a movie; any talk of results?

The combination of a new president who talked about inclusiveness and a chief diplomat who had been his rival but shared his vision allowed the United States to repair relations around the world that had been completely trashed by the previous administration.

Really? What country, if any, likes us now?

Mrs. Clinton helped make it possible to impose tougher sanctions on Iran, which in turn led to the important nuclear deal now going into effect.

Yes, she's responsible for a deal with so many holes that allows Iran to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

She worked to expand and deepen the dialogue with China and to increase Washington’s institutional ties to the region.

We have a huge trade deficit with China and are fighting over the South China Sea. What has she done about this?

Mrs. Clinton had rebuked China when she was first lady for its treatment of women,

...but as Secretary of State said not a peep.

In January 2011, before the Arab Spring, Mrs. Clinton delivered a speech that criticized Arab leaders, saying their countries risked “sinking into the sand” unless they liberalized their political systems and cleaned up their economies. Certainly, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis deepened during her tenure, but she did not cause that.

No...... of course not.

Some of the campaign attacks are outrageous, like Donald Trump’s efforts to bring up Bill Clinton’s marital infidelity. Some, like those about Mrs. Clinton's use of a private email server, are legitimate and deserve forthright answers.

And Mrs. Clinton's defense and enabling of them are outrageous to ask about too?

Some, like those about Mrs. Clinton's use of a private email server, are legitimate and deserve forthright answers.

But this editorial is not the place to discuss her lack of forthright answers.

That's the closest the editorial gets to discussing her criminality of keeping top secret information on an unsecured server. Not mentioned at all is her role in the death of our ambassador to Libya or her taking donations for her foundation from foreigner while she was Secretary of State. For the Times, criminal acts are not worth mentioning because they have to support Hillary.

How old is Donald Trump emotionally?


What would you say Donald Trump's emotional age is? The reason I ask is because of his very questionable, even childish behavior. Everyone he disagrees with is called a "loser" or "stupid" or "failing". This is the language children use in criticizing one another. Instead of responding to each other's arguments, children just give blanket assertions that the others around them are bad. That is exactly what Trump does.

Can Trump really win the nomination with only a third of the vote?


I have hypothesized that Donald Trump can win the GOP nomination with only 32% of the vote. That's based on the theory that he will get almost 32% of the delgates in the states that award delegates proportionally, and that he will win all the winner take all states because the vote for other candidates will be below 32%
