Dr. Rove Uses Psychology To Defeat Hilary



Karl Rove misdiagnosis of Hilary Clinton’s 2012 fall became public in 2014 because he’s wanting to saturate the echo chamber with the idea that she’s too old to run for office and he’s scared that Democrats may elect the first female president in 2016. But, we know that facts don’t matter to Dr. Rove. It’s just spin in the end – at least that’s how he sees it.

Dr. Rove turned a 3 day hospital visit into a 30 day visit just like he turned Mitt Romney’s presidential defeat into a win in 2012. Once an idea is planted in his mind facts never get in his way. A good smear job is all this amounts to.

Today, we have other quotable notables like Newt Gingrich from the right wing stepping forward expressing outrage about what the good Dr. Rove said. Tomorrow, closer to election day, they’ll be flipping and flopping about age if their Benghazi double down doesn’t work.

But, what if this is more than just a smear campaign? Let’s look at this as a way of feeding Hilary’s mind with “you look sick” psychology and by the end of the day, she starts feeling sick or too old to run.

Next, right wing operatives will have Hilary Clinton faking the passing of a medical exam. If it sticks Dr. Rove wins.

The Right to Vote

Voting when the Constitution was ratified was basically restricted to white males. Freeing the slaves and enfranchising them, allowing women to vote and lowering the voting age to 21 each took individual Constitutional Amendments to bring to fruition. Until recently, though hard-fought and excruciatingly slow, the direction of change has been in favor of including larger segments of the population in our elections, not smaller ones. Without swift Congressional action, this decision by the Supreme Court could result in a drastic exclusion of increasing numbers of people from the electorate unjustly.

We’ve Come Too Far There’s No Turning Back



Steve Colbert sat down with Bill Moyers and discussed why the middle class is disappearing.  Moyers, who was present during Lyndon Johnson’s signing of voting rights bill, offered a revelation about the Supreme Court’s voting right’s decision. 

The basic premise of the American Dream is if you work hard you can make enough money to have a better life.  And, you can make a better life for yourself and your children. 

Instead, 49 million people in this country are using food stamps.  Not because they want to be on welfare, but because jobs today pay so low that they can’t afford a decent lively hood.  Moyer’s documentary, Two American Families premiering July 9th, talks to a few families.  He told us how these families were retrained, worked several jobs including a 2nd shift and found themselves making half the money they use to make from their factory jobs that had been closed. 

Comedy, as only Colbert can deliver it, started a satirical rendition about the middle class. 

Colbert quipped “You do understand capitalism don’t you” – here’s how Colbert explains it:  “the middle class did it to themselves:  they unionized, demanded better working conditions, they demanded better pay and we had no choice but to ship the jobs overseas.”

The conversation took a serious turn and concluded with a warning from Moyers.

The Supreme Court’s voting rights decision was a betrayal of people like Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Elijah Cummins, and Bernard Lafayette’s martyrdom. 

In time, the racist in the south will be overcome by the sheer weight of numbers by the Blacks and Hispanics and other people who are not going to put up with being mistreated again like they once were, Moyers warned.  The numbers will win in the long run.

Talk about a dose of inspiration.  “The number will win in the long run” applies to not only the population but more specifically it applies to the number of Democrats versus Republicans.  Democrats outnumber Republicans.  All we have to do is vote.
