Anyone who watched the third debate could see that Donald Trump blew Hillary Clinton out of the water. And part of the reason he did so well was that we finally had a moderator willing to challenge the Democratic nominee on her lies. The unofficial MVP of the third debate was Fox News’s Chris Wallace, who finally restored a sense of fairness to the debates.
In doing so, Wallace put Hillary on the spot. And Hillary slithered out of the light and back into her Cave of Secrets, leaving Americans with the same old impression: She can’t be trusted.
At the start of the debate, Wallace asked her if she viewed the Constitution as the final word in American law or as a “living document,” subject to vast amounts of judicial interpretation.
“I have major disagreements with my opponent about these issues and others that will be before the Supreme Court,” she said. “But I feel that at this point in our country’s history, it is important that we not reverse marriage equality, that we not reverse Roe v. Wade, that we stand up against Citizens United, we stand up for the rights of people in the workplace, that we stand up and basically say: The Supreme Court should represent all of us.”
Quite the dodge. She never got around to the core subject, which is how she views the Constitution.
Still, her answer told the story indirectly. She rattled off specific issues instead of talking about the basic ideology. She did that for a reason. The vast majority of Americans still believe in the Constitution and, more specifically, the Bill of Rights. We still believe that the Founding Fathers got it right the first time. We don’t want a bunch of liberal activists in the court, trying to second guess the rare genius that forged this nation.
So Hillary can’t come right out and say, Oh yes, we should have professor so-and-so reimagine the Second Amendment; he’s much smarter than those idiots Jefferson and Madison.
She’s got to cling to these issues, as though the Constitution has anything to do with gay marriage and abortion. The fact that we’re even discussing the Constitution in these terms shows you how far astray the Supreme Court has gotten – and partially under a CONSERVATIVE majority! Can you imagine how ludicrous the rulings will get if Hillary reshapes the court?
And then go vote.
