We could have sworn the “new beginning” started back in 1992. But apparently now that it’s 2016, a certain “historic” candidate with memory loss issues can’t remember back that far.
“When he says ‘let’s make America great again,’ that’s code for ‘let’s take America backwards’ — back to a time when opportunity and dignity were reserved for some, not all,” she said. “We, however, we want to write the next chapter in American greatness with a 21st Century prosperity that lifts everyone who has been left out and left behind, including those who may not vote for us, but deserve their chance to make a new beginning.”
This all sounds so familiar to people not suffering from memory loss and possible early onset Alzheimer’s.
In his Little Rock speech, Mr. Clinton said he would reach out to Republicans and independents, including Mr. Perot, and called for unity.
‘My fellow Americans,” he began, standing in the cold outside the Old State House in downtown Little Rock, where he announced his candidacy exactly 13 months earlier. “On this day, with high hopes and brave hearts, in massive numbers the American people have voted to make a new beginning.
That worked out so well, let’s try it again! As an aside, isn’t a “new beginning” redundant? If something is new, isn’t it the beginning? Oh well, Grandma is all about new beginnings, or something.
“I am all about new beginnings,” Clinton said at the Toner Prize event in Washington. “A new grandchild, another new hair style, a new email account, why not a new relationship with the press? So here goes, no more secrecy, no more zone of privacy. After all, what good did that do me?”
She was also all about new beginnings back in 2007, before she lost to another “historic” candidate:
She has tried to co-opt the message of change from Obama, declaring that she has been “working for change” her entire life. Over the past week, she injected the phrase “new beginning” into her stump speech.
Why do we get the feeling this new beginning is the beginning of a horror show?
