Hillary Clinton gave a remarkable speech in New Hampshire this week, serving up fair warning of what a Clinton restoration would mean. According to Clinton, we have been living through the immiseration of the American middle class roughly since the expiration of her husband’s second term. Ms. Hillary claims the mantle of the Progressives for herself. She sees economic inequality and wants to level that playing field. We’ve heard the tune before, although Ms. Hillary adds a disarming frankness to her claim on the fruit of your efforts:
It’s time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few and for the few, time to reject the idea of an “on your own” society and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity. I prefer a “we’re all in it together” society.
Not since I was 16 have I wanted so badly to be on my own. In today’s New York Sun Josh Gerstein reports that Rudy Giuliani is talking back to Ms. Hillary. I’d like to hear from each of the Republican candidates on the baloney and balderdash served up in Ms. Hillary’s speech. Let us come to the correct conclusion about who can talk back best. And may the best man win.
