Hillary Clinton applauds establishment Republicans and big business

July 18, 2014

 You read the headline; before you read  any further what do you think could possibly make bedfellows (sorry for the mental image) of Hillary Clinton, the Republican establishment, and big business?

  Why the Tea Party of course!

  The establishment Republicans have been in an all out war with the Tea Party in order to hold onto their precious power and perceived nobility. John Boehner has been punishing conservatives who fail to kowtow to his will by removing them from influential committee positions, while Karl Rove has created a group called the Conservative Victory Project–which would be more aptly named the Republican Incumbent Protection Project–in an attempt to protect establishment Republicans from Tea Party challenges.

  And this is what Hillary Clinton appears to be applauding. Here is more:

“Finally, the Republican establishment and their business supporters have woken up,” Clinton said, noting that she tells audiences, “Don’t vote for anyone who refuses to compromise.”

Rose said that the Tea Party conservatives are more powerful now than when her husband was president, but Clinton said when big business interests pour millions into races, conservatives can be defeated, as the Cochran race showed. 

    Not that I hadn’t figured this out already, but what this comment shows us is that the Republican establishment is more closely aligned with the liberal Democrats than they are with the Tea party.

  But do you know what I find even more interesting in that quote above? It is Hillary Clinton’s stance on big business spending money to defeat conservative challengers by spending money on establishment Republicans.

  I thought the left opposed the idea of nameless, faceless corporations spending money on elections?  Haven’t they been bitching and moaning about the Citizens United decision since it was handed down? I seem to recall Barack Obama calling out the Supreme Court in a State of the Union Address on this very issue…

  But now suddenly that big business is helping to defeat the Tea party she is apparently okay with this practice?  What this shows us is this; Democrats do not have a problem with big business donating to elections but only have a problem with who the businesses are contributing to.

  I wonder if the former Secretary of State will hold the same position if she wins the Democratic nomination for president and these same businesses begin dumping money into the campaign coffers of her opponent…

    A chameleon in wolf’s clothes. She will do whatever and say whatever it takes. Literally. We have seen her in action. Though we know how Rove and company are all about.

      Exactly! She will change her colors once the businesses start opposing her. Political opportunism at its best/worst.

    Establishment Republicans and establishment Democrats are all cut from the same cloth. They don’t want the voters to make the choice in the primaries for who their candidate will be. They will give the voters a choice between two evils every time.

      You are right, there is virtually no difference between establishment Republicans and establishment Democrats. They are all big government elitists who are only interested in controlling the big government. They know that outsiders are a threat to their cliche so they band together to defend one another. They are playing a game and we are the pawns.
