Hillary Clinton is no Lady Thatcher

Is America still America when we choose such silly people to govern us? The Tunnel Dweller.

Thatcher-Clinton Comparisons Show Hillary’s Vulnerabilities  "The death of Margaret Thatcher led numerous media commentators to draw dubious comparisons between Britain’s “Iron Lady” and prospective president Hillary Clinton.

"But Thatcher spent her entire life espousing the same core principles—including opposition to the Nanny State and unbending resistance to Communist tyranny. What, precisely, are the consistent ideals indelibly associated with Hillary Clinton? Moreover, Thatcher contributed dozens of pithy, quotable remarks—like “don’t go wobbly,” or “the problem with socialism is you ultimately run out of other people’s money.”
"Hillary’s most memorable statements involved dark hints about a “vast right wing conspiracy” or saying of Benghazi, “what difference does it make?” Finally, Thatcher climbed to power on her own while Clinton initially gained national influence through her husband’s achievements. The contrast between these women highlights undeniable vulnerabilities in Hillary’s potential White House bid." Michael Medved
Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher

"Thatcher was the UK's first female Prime Minister and was dubbed the 'Iron Lady', by Yury Gavrilov, a young soldier working for the Red Army's Red Star newspaper in 1976, days after Thatcher delivered her 'Britain Awake' speech in which she derided the — then — Labour government for cutting back on arms, while the Soviet Union was investing heavily.

"The Russians are bent on world dominance, and they are rapidly acquiring the means to become the most powerful imperial nation the world has seen," she said." . . . 
But then it comes down to "a plague on all your houses". TD:

Political Cartoons by Robert Ariail

"Trump and Clinton have both shown they lack the judgment to be president." . . . But regarding the front-runner:
. . . If Trump’s personnel choices don’t inspire confidence, neither do Clinton’s. In her years as secretary of state and a presidential candidate, she has surrounded herself with a coterie of sycophants such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. They’re utterly loyal, but maybe overly loyal. As revelations of their e-mail traffic show, they lack good judgment and, above all, the ability to tell the principal things she doesn’t want to but needs to hear. . .

Personally, I don't like Trump. That being said, He DOES love
America and he shows that over decades. Neither the current
occupier of the White House (when he's not on vacation) nor
the Butcher of Benghazi have EVER shown their love for
America. Only love for themselves.

Donald Trump surrounds himself with those who gets
the job done.
