Response to PoliticalMalcontent (Original post)

Sat Dec 12, 2015, 04:25 AM

5. There we go again:

 

polls indicate that large numbers of Democrats think she is not progressive, so Clinton immediately starts including that word in her speaches.

Just as earlier, focus groups indicate that some group of swing voters was still watching FOX and therefore thought Clinton was too liberal. And so she made sure to tell Anderson Cooper that she was a moderate.

It's abundantly clear that she will say anything that a poll or a focus group tells her she needs to say to become president.

The question is: WHAT things is she going to "get done" if she gets into the White House? Her campaign issues a lot of policy statements, but when you cut out the triangulated rhetoric,

* NO improvement of LGBT rights
* NO addressing the needd for police and prison reform
* NO re-instating Glass-Steagall, leaving a big hole in the direly needed firewall between financial banking and the real economy with commercial banking.
