We all know the old saying: “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” I hope we all know its meaning; that despite our best efforts and intentions, most of us grow up to morph into our parents. We develop similar habits, similar traits.
It’s also true that a good kid is usually a reflection of good parents and a bad kid is the result of bad parenting. Apparently this is true of Hillary Clinton.
Hillary’s much anticipated (tongue in cheek) memoir is being released in a few weeks. In it she paints quite a rosy picture of her dear sainted mother, Dorothy Rodham.
This is a bit strange and at odds with what author Jerry Oppenheimer wrote of mama Rodham in his Clinton biography more than 10 years ago.
Oppenheimer learned of Hillary’s rewrite of history from an excerpt of Hillary’s memoir recently published in Vogue magazine.
He granted an interview with MailOnline where he told them that according to his research this was not the same Dorothy Rodham he documented in the biography. “It just isn’t a true picture of a woman who, like most everyone, also had a dark side, which emerged in interviews with family members who knew her well.”
Witnesses told Oppenheimer that Dorothy Rodham would often say, “Oh, those damn Jews are so cheap” and “That Jew has to watch every dime.” It’s odd that Dorothy Rodham’s father was Jewish and her own mother often called her husband a “cheap Jew bastard.” Wow – nice family!
Now, we’ve all known people that don’t seem to be happy unless they’re miserable – always angry about something.
Well, according to Oppenheimer – that is Hillary’s mother. One of Dorothy Rodham’s nephews told Oppenheimer, “It seems like she [Dorothy] can’t get along in life and why she’s really pissed at someone.”
Hillary’s cousin Oscar Dowdy says, “Hillary is Dorothy’s daughter. It’s unfortunate. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. To me, Hillary and Dorothy have a lot of likenesses.”
And we have been witness to this from her treatment of Israel, as Secretary of State, to her often reported “hot temper” behind closed doors in the White House, to her obstinate arrogance directed at Congress during the Benghazi hearings.
Dowdy added: “I don’t think they take anybody’s feelings into consideration. What’s good for them is good – nothing else matters.”
And this is what we want in our next president, another angry, self-centered, megalomaniacal leftist? A president who cares only about herself, not the country? A president who cares only about her progressive legacy? As we’ve seen in Obama, this is not a recipe for success. Although, if the measure of success is to tear the country down and rebuild it in one’s image, I guess you could say this is a success.
In my opinion, one Obama in a lifetime is more than enough.
And as awful as Obama is, Hillary, I fear, would likely be even worse, if that’s possible.
