In Hillary Clinton’s America, The Government Plays Santa Claus With Your Money

by Doug Mataconis

Check out Hillary Clinton’s “Christmas card” ad:

Hillary Clinton as Santa Claus giving us all presents.

Ummm, except for the fact that all of her “presents” are paid for with someone else’s money.

  1. So you are suggesting… any other politicians would NEVER do that! Come on, we know our political system is busted — it is the money (in the form of pork barrel payouts, lobbyists, campaign finance, etc.) that keeps politicians from actually getting the government to do its job: protect us, set the rules for fair play, and be a steward of our national resources.

    sigh… enough Hillary bashing.

  2. Bush has talked about us being addicted to oil, but I think we are actually addicted to OPM (pronounced opium)(Other Peoples Money). Certainly Hillary is. Look at her in the ad. It looks like she just got her favorite toy or drug of choice, but instead is stealing money from one person to give to another after she and her bureacracy takes out their chunk. She seems so gleeful doing this like she is addicted to it.

    We need our drug war to shift gears and go after people who are addicted to OPM.
