Michael Corleone: It’s not personal Sonny, it’s strictly business
The Godfather 1972
Yesterday on the Rush Limbaugh show he noted that Bill & Hillary skipped Michael Brown’s funeral and teased the question:
So why not? Why are the Clintons not there? Oh, there’s an answer. It’s a simple answer. But since I’m kind of in a teasing mode today, I’ll leave that hanging while you ponder it.
Well since Rush is unwilling to tell you I figured I’d jump on in ahead of him:
It’s because Hillary is running in 2016 & Bill Clinton knows how elections and human nature works.
Bill understands the low information voter & swing voters think. They weren’t interested in the Michael Brown shooting and the breast beating it produced but were very interested in the rioting and saw the loop of a 6′ 4″ Brown shove that little clerk in the last hour of his life.
There were very few if any potential 2016 voters watching the coverage of Michael Brown’s funeral or in the church that’s already aren’t in Hillary’s pocket if she wins the nomination, being seen there wouldn’t earn her a single vote.
On the other hand Images of Bill and Hillary standing with Al Sharpton in Ferguson at Brown funeral would have a definite effect on swing voters in key states whose primary takeaway of Ferguson were the riots and don’t think for one second police unions would forget if Bill & Hillary were standing proudly with the people out for the blood of one of their own.
That’s what it comes down to. Hillary and Bill were not in Ferguson for Michael Brown’s funeral because they didn’t dare be seen there if she wants to be President of the United States. That’s reality.
And when it comes to politics, Bill Clinton is the ultimate realist.
