Mayor de Blasio has shown no enthusiasm for Hilary Clinton’s entry in to the Presidential race.
She is liberal but not far enough left for de Blasio. He is the oversized progressive. He is the gallon of milky progressive clichés that his acolytes try to stuff into a quart container. Instead of pictures of missing children on the waxy container, we have a picture of a man representing extreme socialist ideology and naïve progressivism.
Now don’t get me wrong, I dislike Hillary and feel that she would be more interested in pleasing Democrats than in doing a good job. However, there is such a thing as quid pro quo and the honor of repaying a debt.
The Clintons have always been mentors and enablers to de Blasio. Hillary even helped him to become mayor, raising money for him and campaigning with him.
The worst thing a person can do is betraying trust. De Blasio had a moral and ethical obligation to endorse Hillary, even if he felt that she wasn’t as progressive as him.
In the mafia he would have been punished as a snitch or a traitor. And when the mafia has a better code of values than the United States Government, we are on a downhill slide.
De Blasio’s not endorsing Hillary shows a failure of loyalty and character, even if it shows intelligence.
Ideas are ideas, but integrity and trueness are the glue that hold a country together. When the Democrats stick together on stupid ideas like hysteria about global warming and the elimination of the Second Amendment, why can’t they be cohesive on honor and loyalty to friends who help them?
I never thought I’d stand up for Hillary. No problem; she’ll fall down on her own.
