“The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” — Ronald Reagan
How tone-deaf is Hillary Clinton? There she was on CNN yesterday, sounding like a bad parody of Ronald Reagan’s famous line. Appearing on Fareed Zakaria’s show, Hillary said:
“The real threat to your future is a government that doesn’t care about you.”
Wrong, Hillary. The real threat is a government that, under the guise of “caring,” encroaches on our unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Note also this from Hillary, as seen in the screen graphic: “it’s a terrible mistake for Democrats or anybody to walk away from America’s core values.”
That’s a variation on the Dem line that drives Rush Limbaugh to distraction: “those aren’t our values. That’s not who we are.” When my dog Bundi—featured in the FinkelBlog logo—is acting up, I’ll use that line on him. But he don’t listen. 😉
