The #MeToo Elephant

Elephant in the roomBill Why do Democrats keep losing? Why do Democrats continue to under-perform in elections and why are their numbers slipping all over the country? Let me answer that question. Democrats continue to lose because they avoid dealing with the elephant in the room. The elephant in the room of course is the pile of credible allegations of sexual misconduct against former President Bill Clinton. Those allegations include accusations of forcible rape by Juanita Broderick. Those allegations include a payoff of $850,000 to Paula Jones.

Democrats have dodged the questions ever since the allegations involving Monica Lewinsky percolated to the top of the DC swamp. When that happened the Clintons and the Democrats were forced to face the music but they never really sang the tune. Instead they …

For twenty five years or more it has been pushed to the back of the room but with the #MeToo movement taking over the conversation a year ago- the elephant is getting antsy and seems to be making more of a stink. The elephant is sick of being ignored and no matter how much the Clintons and the left wish it would just go away, it won’t.

Try as they might the Clintons cannot put the matter to rest. Just this past weekend Hillary Clinton, continuing on her endless explanation tour was hit with the question about her husband’s alleged sexual misconduct and once again she failed to take the matter head on and instead pivoted to a position of justifying and rationalizing that just doesn’t pass the smell test.

Appearing on CBS Sunday Morning reporter Tony Dokoupil asked Hillary, “In retrospect do you think Bill Should have resigned in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal?” Clinton shot back, “Absolutely not!”

“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” Dokoupil pressed. “No, no”, Hillary stammered before going on to a rationalization and pointing to accusations made against The President.

Of course there is Hillary’s role in all of it as well. It is widely known that she is the one that targeted Bill’s accusers to destroy their credibility and smear their character. She was the one woman wrecking crew that defended the brand without question and without apology.

Democrats keep losing because they can’t shake the Clintons and the smell that follows them around. It is a scent and sense of entitlement and of being above the law. It has left Democrats all over the country in the unenviable position of having to defend them when they realize it is indefensible.

Each time Hillary sits down for a new interview the Republicans cheer and the Democrats cringe in fear of what will be said. Hillary’s favorability ratings have plummeted into the 20’s. That’s right, Donald Trump is twice as popular as his vanquished rival from 2016. Let that sink in for a minute.

So here is the definitive list of what Democrats have to do to begin winning races they should and setting the course for the nation.

Stop denigrating groups of voters that used to support Democrats in elections big and small all over the country. Lets start with men, white men specifically. Stop telling anyone that will listen that basically everything that has ever gone wrong in the world is the fault of the patriarchy of white men. What exactly is the game plan of castigating every single white man.

Stop targeting women who don’t believe accusers without evidence as ‘gender traitors’. Stop screaming that women who didn’t vote for a woman are somehow lowlifes for not casting their ballots with genitals in mind.

Stop screaming at everyone that drives an SUV that they are destroying the planet and are generally evil for enjoying big safe luxury vehicles. Each time Al Gore comes out with a new ‘the sky is falling’ emergency like he did this week, regular people roll their eyes and tune out. I mean how many times can one guy cry wolf. It’s not like we haven’t seen hurricanes before and the strange attempt to implicate the guy that has been in The White House less than 2 years is even stranger. Anyone with a modicum of common sense knows better. Do they expect us all to believe that is President Trump had remained in the Paris Climate accords Hurricane Florence would have fizzled out and Hurricane Michael would have stalled? It is abject stupidity.

Stop telling ordinary Americans that abortion into the 3 rd trimester can save the life of the mother. It is a lie and anyone who can think clearly knows that. In fact I don’t think you can come up with a single scenario where a third trimester abortion would save the life of the mother. In fact I challenge any Democrat, any liberal, anyone anywhere to give me a circumstance where a third trimester abortion would be required to save the mothers life. Simply put- there is no such thing.

Most of all however if Democrats want to start winning again and directing the conversation- the single most important thing they could do would be to disavow the Clintons. Stop being polite. The only way to get past this problem is to get rid of it.

Trust me Republicans and conservatives cheer each time Hillary gives some ill- advised answer to a friendly reporter. (lets be honest she only takes softball interviews) I have said for a long time that the best way to help Republicans win is to put Hillary on TV as often as possible.
