Each week, the editor’s of LA Progressive pick what they regard as a particularly insightful comment from one of our readers, both to draw attention to one particular reader’s thoughts and to encourage more readers to weigh in with their opinions. This week’s pithy response comes from Rick Broderick, one of writers who commented on Robert Reich’s “Will Hillary Get America Back on Track?“
Neither Roosevelt was as greedy, tainted by corruption, or — let’s face it — incompetent as Hillary Clinton. Neither accepted tens of millions of dollars from the richest few, giving speeches and closed-door presentations promising the robber barons even greater rewards. She or her husband or her daughter have. Neither Roosevelt created a bogus foundation to bolster their Presidential ambitions and peddle influence through pay-to-play schemes. She has. She’s a disaster on every level imaginable and nothing Reich, bless his heart, or any other old-time liberal says is going to make a difference.
As for all those concessions Sanders and his supporters wrested from her and the Democratic establishment, well, excuse me — where are they today? All she campaigns on is “I’m not Trump.” No. She’s not.
And that about exhausts the list of her virtues.
