As yet another sign of the wobbly wheel challenged Canadian made Obama bus disaster, Gigi Georges – former Hillary aide and New York State Democrat Party executive director – has given her endorsement to Mitt Romney.
For most of my life, I’ve been an active Democrat. I am proud to have worked for President Bill Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton, and, during that time, I saw firsthand what can be accomplished by strong, bipartisan leadership. I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people. And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney. Governor Romney has a plan to restore the prosperity this country deserves and expects. He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them. That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change Mitt Romney is offering.
There are a couple of ways to take this endorsement. First it could be a truly heartfelt choice for what Gigi thinks is best for our nation. Another reason could be that Obama has been really bad for the Clintons. He played the race card on them during the primary and took from Hillary what was thought by many to be an easy path to another Clinton White House (sans oval office oral amusements). More importantly, he has annihilated any future chance for a possible Hillary presidency with the Benghazi scandal.
However, with my ever optimistic viewpoint, I choose the former reason for this endorsement and welcome Gigi into the land of reality and renewed national pride.
