Democrats Are The Real ‘Family Values’ Candidates, Not Republicans

Republicans like touting themselves as the “family values” party. That’s if you consider low wages, no right to healthcare, discrimination and sexism to be “values.” But that’s just on a political scale. When it comes to their families, the candidates in the 2016 Presidential race have anything but.

Let’s compare their parental values, shall we? It’s fair game…they’re the ones who say the Democrats lack family values.

Let’s start with the Republicans.

More importantly, let’s start with Mike Huckabee. Huckabee had the audacity to claim President Barack Obama was an irresponsible parent because he let’s his daughters, Sasha and Malia, listen to Beyoncé. I guess when your son murders a stray dog, gets arrested on an illegal gun charge and “stars” in an experimental raunchy movie, a Dad of the Year award seems out of reach, too.

How about Jeb Bush? His youngest, John Ellis Bush, was arrested for public intoxication and resisting arrest. How about his daughter, Noelle? Charged with prescription drug fraud when she tried to pass a forged drug prescription for Xanax. Maybe she and her once-coke head Uncle George can have something to talk about.

Rand Paul’s son certainly has some issues of his own. William Paul, his oldest, faced an assault charge against a flight attendant as well as underage drinking back in 2013. Surprisingly (not), but charges were eventually dropped. Then, last April, Paul was charged with driving under the influence. In October of 2013, he was charged with an MIC – minor in consumption. It seems that maybe his daddy shouldn’t let him get off the hook and make him pay for crimes like every other teenager. Dad of the Year award goes to….not Rand Paul.

Now let’s take a look at the Democrats.

Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea (who was mocked relentlessly by the right), has actually made quite the name for herself. She’s worked in management consulting journalism, making the big bucks. Now she helps run her parents’ influential and very powerful non-profit organization. She’s married to her boyfriend of five years and is a new mother. She’s never had an arrest, a run-in with the law, or even as much as a citation.

And what about Bernie Sanders? His son, Levi, is a paralegal who represents in disability and Medicare cases and helps raise money for shelters that house battered women. Oh, and he also lobbies on behalf of low-income and elderly individuals.

You know, a paralegal who helps battered women and a journalist are almost as good as an underage drinker, a fraud, and an animal killer. But only one group seems to think they are the true party of Christian family values. Please.
