Hillary gets it half-right

For all the blathering from Washington about how great the economy is, wily politicians from the opposition party know there's a vein of discontent into which they can tap. Bill Bonner notes in the Daily Reckoning how one presidential hopeful is doing just that.

“A lot of Americans can’t work any harder, borrow any more, or save any less,” says the sage senator from the great state of New York, Hilary Clinton.

Wow, she hits the nail on the head. But when she takes another whack with the hammer, the nail bends at well over a 90-degree angle:

She promises a “fair wage, access to college, home ownership, and a path out of poverty into the middle class.”

Bonner takes it from there. By the way, Hillaryphobes can take comfort from the scathing remarks pollsters are hearing from Democrats in New Hampshire.

“Lying b**** . . . shrew . . . Machiavellian . . . evil, power-mad witch . . . the ultimate self-serving politician.”

How that makes her substantially different from the rest of the scamsters and scalawags in our fair capital I'm not sure, but it's entertaining reading.
