So I’m Cruising the news this morning, and I find the following:
Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee, will endorse John McCain for president on Wednesday, her spokesman tells CNN.
No big deal, really. This is one unprincipled idiot, who apparently only backed Hillary because she was a woman, and not based on any of her positions. But I found this to be hilarious:
In an interview with CNN this summer, Forester did not hide her distaste for eventual Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
“This is a hard decision for me personally because frankly I don’t like him,” she said of Obama in an interview with CNN’s Joe Johns. “I feel like he is an elitist. I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him.”
Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild was married to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, who is practically British banking royalty. She is now the head of EL Rothschild, a holding company that owns businesses all around the world, and she’s known as a "communications mogul." New York magazine did a short profile of her, which you should check out, including the following quotes;
On why she’s investing in India: "You know, there are more billionaires
in India than anyplace else. Let me put it this way: Every day in
India, the entire nation of Great Britain is on the train, one way or
another. So the numbers are pretty colossal. Seventy million people in
India can afford anything they want. It’s a small percent, but that’s a
reasonable number. Two hundred fifty million are middle-class, so you
might not go for the Chanel glasses, but you sure could go for an Estée
Lauder lipstick or a Starbucks coffee."
This woman is referring to Obama as an "elitist"?
If Obama were running for president of India, with the same philosophy he’s running with now, what would bother him is the fact that only 320 million people are either rich or middle class, in a country of more than one billion. Yet, HE is the elitist?
Now, keep in mind; this is a woman who raised $100,000 for Hillary. Want to know why? Here’s a quote from the same New York article:
On why she’s voting for Hillary: "I think if history is our guide,
we’ve had stronger economies, more wealth creation, under Democratic
presidents than we have under Republican presidents."
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m tempted to just say "good riddance."
