Every once in awhile I do have a epiphany. Yesterday evening was one of those moments. People don’t like Hillary Clinton. Even people in her own party can’t stand her. Yet, she appears to have the press in some sort of magical hypnosis, unable to either see the factual accuracy of her mendacity, or unwilling to admit to seeing it.
They must hate Donald Trump. They do, but something else is going on here. It is so simple we appear to be missing the point.
Hillary Clinton has been anointed Barack Obama’s third term. If she fails, he fails. If she succeeds, then his legacy is assured. The press has a tremendous stake in Obama’s legacy. They bet the farm on him. If Obama’s legacy is tarnished, then they don’t do well.
Barack Obama must not be allowed to fail, no matter how disastrous his Presidency has been. It is as simple as that. Hillary Clinton must be elected, no matter what the media does to help her win, in order to save Barack Obama’s legacy.
Nothing more, and nothing less.
