Hillary & Honest Abe . . .

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    As we all know, presidential elections are around the corner and being an independent, as well as, an equal opportunity offender, I do like political humor from both sides of the aisle. Like them or hate them, sadly, our choices for good, qualified candidates to lead this Nation are paltry at best. That being said, I dug this up from some of my archived notes . . .

Hillary Clinton gets elected President and is spending her first night in the White House.
The ghost of George Washington appears, and Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"
Washington says, "Never tell a lie,"
Ouch! Says Hillary, I don't know about that.
The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson appears...Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"
Jefferson says, "Listen to the people,"
Ho! I REALLY don't WANT to do that.
On the third night, the ghost of Abe Lincoln appears...Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"
Lincoln says, "Go to the theater . . . Go to the theater . . ."

Hi Michael.  Lincoln always had a way with words.  Too funny.  Thanks.

Our choices are "paltry"?

We have 12 candidates on one side of the aisle who are successful Governors or business people.

Good morning Michael.  Sadly, I don't think most of them if not all could get past the first visit.  I'll leave it at that

Hi Michael, I very much enjoyed the humor at the expense of Hillary, but I must admit, admit hell I must brag, my personal view of Hillary is well at the bottom of the ocean, for exactly the points of the joke. Then it crossed my mind how was the story received by the supporters of Hillary? I’m sure there are many who are honest supporters and my guess is they did not get the joke and wonder why the story was told. I sympathize for her supporters who understood the joke and are very angry with it as they are in denial or don’t care. I am a bit perplexed by your opening comment  “paltry at best.” I thought maybe you are a negative personality so I read some of your other posts and found you are not. By the way I think your animated video is very good. But back to  your comment “paltry at best”, I think David Barr had a good point. If you believe the field is paltry who would you think would be better from both parties?

I needed that laugh TeamCHI - Complete Home Inspections, Inc. Here in Nh we are buries with candidates and Killary is nose diving, not sure the only other choice on the Dem side is much better.

Good morning William Queen . At one time I felt that Condi Rice would make a good candidate. She is smart. When I wrote this, I was thinking more of the front-runners. They both have strong and somewhat polarizing personalities.

Michael, If your standard is led by Condi Rice I can easily relate to your use of paltry. She would be very close to an ideal president. However, I am fearful due to her very desirable attributes of honesty, correct applications of the facts, personal humility etc she might not be an ideal candidate. But I agree with you that I would love to see her try.

Good Fortune,

Bad - very BAD.  It should be an intersting election.  If Trump makes it all the way, at least we will be entertained.
