Not much can be said about the Democratic debate that hasn’t been ridiculed extensively on social media. The Democrats know it—this is why they schedule debates for times no one will ever watch.
Two points, though, came to our attention, and both involve ridiculously obvious hypocrisy. Pandering to the audience, of course, is the gateway to political hypocrisy, and both Senator Bernie Sanders and future inmate Hillary Clinton could not have been more obvious about it.
Sanders, like the others, has an incredibly revisionist mentality about the Iraq War. In his narrative, we were basically at peace with Iraq until that decadent cowboy George W. Bush rained hell upon them, got a bunch of Americans killed over non-existent WMDs but very obviously for oil, and left the war in a terrible mess. Thank goodness President Obama cleaned it up and everything is better there now. Not great, mind you, but better. And certainly not as good as it was in 1998.
Why? Because George W. Bush failed to understand the complexity of the culture, the intricacies of the society, and thousands of years of history and religion all intertwined through every country in the region. It’s a Charlotte’s web of interconnecting parts, which is why the whole thing is such a quagmire.
So how would Sen. Sanders tackle ISIS? Well, that’s easy! You just go straighten it out. Heck, it isn’t that hard to do at all, and anyone can figure out how to fix every aspect of the situation. It’s a perfectly simple culture with no tricky components.
Clinton was no better. When asked if she supports something of Barack Obama’s administration (anything, really) reasonably popular with Democrats, you can bet that she’s tightly aligned with Barack Obama. She was there at the time, is on the inside track, and by golly she’s here to tell you that her election is effectively a third term for Obama. They are sympatico, baby, and they ride together like this, you know?
Okay, well about the mess in Syria? You know, Mrs. Clinton, a lot of people on the Left think Obama’s red-line proposal was a serious mistake, and he really dropped the ball on it, and left people thinking his foreign policy was a disaster of epic proportions.
Certainly, Clinton responded time and again, she disagreed with the President at the time, and she saw things very differently from where she was. No, she probably would not have made the same decisions, because she’s her own person and really does things differently from him.
In other words, if you liked it, she likes it as well. If you dislike anything from the Obama years, yeah, she didn’t think much of it, either.
What a load of crap.
As Senator Marco Rubio tweeted during the debate:

Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
