Trump vs. Sanders—vs. Bloomberg?

Gwynne Dyer

The outcome of the US presidential primaries was supposed to be Hillary Clinton, the wife of an ex-president, vs. Jeb Bush, the son and brother of other ex-presidents: both worthy but somewhat boring candidates, and both definitely members of the “establishment”. Less than a week before the first primary, the Iowa caucuses, Bush is dead in the water and even Clinton is looking vulnerable.

This is the kind of standard-bearing that allots to leaders a pass in doing what no religious text or moral authority has ever extended a right TO do:

"The outcome of the US presidential primaries was supposed to be Hillary Clinton, the wife of an ex-president, vs. Jeb Bush, the son and brother of other ex-presidents: both worthy but somewhat boring candidates, and both definitely members of the “establishment”.

Mr. Dyer's opening sentence does one thing right: expose the nature of political power dances; but by calling Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton WORTHY... one must rightfully ask, "Worthy of what?"

Just what is it in either individual's performance (and I do hold this Bush Brother to the blood-shed by his family clan since that family collaborated with the Nazis during Hitler's era along with Allen Dulles who was equivalent to a Nazi as oer his under-the-radar black-op activities) that deserves to be codified as WORTHY?

Was it when Mrs. Clinton acted as cheerleader for every recent war of aggression or when she laughed at the murder of Qadaffi? (Different spelling is used on this name so I am not certain which is correct.)

Was it when Jeb Bush collaborated on a Florida voting scam that ensured his totally unqualified (on every level) brother could serve as apparent commander in chief to launch already planned wars after a very convenient--and oh, so necessary--trigger just happened to occur on the chimp's watch?

To use a term like Worthy in describing either of these individuals (with karma so deep no sane person would want to wallow in it) discredits just about anything else that could come after a sentence making so careless and false an assertion.
