Hillary Clinton throws down the gauntlet and dared the Republican to shut down the government. You may recall that Mrs. Clinton was First Lady the first time the Republicans pulled this stunt and you may also recall the disaster that befell the Party Nixon built shortly thereafter.
“This president is not going to agree to defund health care,” she said. “If they want to shut the government down, that is on their head.”
Two Presidents and A Secretary of State and Chelsea Clinton took the stage at the Clinton Foundation annual meeting. Chelsea and her mother set the tone and introduced the two Presidents as they set about discussing the Affordable Care Act.
And then there is
Ted Cruz who has taken to the Senate floor to speak and speak and speak. He promised to filibuster the continuing resolution legislation unfortunately the bill has not reached the stage where a filibuster could take effect. I wonder if this ignorant little Joe McCarthy wannabe realizes that all of his babble is for naught. Because this endless tirade and nonsense talk will not count in the history books as a filibuster. For a guy who went to Harvard Law he does not seem to have a grasp on either reality or the facts.
The imagery is striking on one side you have A Secretary of State Former Senator & First Lady, her husband a former President and global political titan and the current President of the United States and on the other side TED CRUZ.
