Republican attacks mean Hillary Clinton is struggling to finish memoir
Mail Online ^ | 20 January 2014 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 01/20/2014 8:49:09 AM PST by Windflier

Hillary Clinton has not yet finished her latest book which will play an important role in her expected presidential race.

'It’s a bit of a struggle to get it done...She is not necessarily a natural writer,' one anonymous friend told The Washington Post.

Another reason she is reportedly having trouble completing the book about her time as Secretary of State is the fact that she is well aware of the backlash that will come from Republicans.

(snip)

'It’s almost becoming a kind of conventional wisdom that there were minimal accomplishments,' one unidentified friend of Clinton's told The Washington Post, showing what damage the Republican offensive is doing to her legacy.

Bill Ayers can help with that.

Bwahaha.

Maybe Ayers can give her a hand.

And, could it be, is she perhaps, like our current, smartest-ever, president not quite the towering intellect she’s been cracked up to be?

She should just pretend that the words on the page are cattle futures. They’ll magically grow and the book will write itself.

For Democrats, writing a book is just a means of laundering the payoff money.

So we are to believe that Hillary is writing her own memoir? Fiction is best left up to fiction writers, and in Hillary’s case, facts are best buried. Hillary is an oversold sacred cow of the left, and the last thing she wants voters doing is taking a closeup view of her incompetence or lack of intelligence.

Which ‘memoir’ is it?

The one where she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary, even before he climbed Mt. Everest?

Or, the one where she had to dodge a hail of bullets in Bosnia departing from Air Force ‘whatever’ when she visited there as First Lady?

Or, the one where “ I ain’t no Suzy-homemaker bakin’ cookies?” (Wait a minute! that was probably the only truth she’s spoken in decades.)

There are many things that are not natural with Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless.

Herself is almost totally devoid of empathy, critical thinking, and any appeal of a personal nature. Most people would not want to sit next to such a termagant at a meeting of the school board, let along on the platform of national politics.

It’s going to take a lot to put a positive spin on Benghazi. Or to airbrush it out of her history.

I don’t know how scum like that can live with themselves. People talk about doctors playing God, but at least they only do it with one person at a time. Politicians destroy entire countries and cultures.

I consider Hillary and 0vomit personally responsible for the 4 lives lost in Benghazi. This was not a matter of a President having to make a tough decision and send troops into harm’s way in order to defend the country. This was playing politics for personal gain.

'It’s almost becoming a kind of conventional wisdom that there were minimal accomplishments,'

Which is the actual cause of Hillary writer's block. The fat b did nothing of consequence or note during her time as SoS.

It's not possible for the media and Hillary's camp to airbrush Benghazi away. Millions upon millions of Americans know the truth, and will never let them forget what really happened there.

Hillary's name is practically becoming synonymous with that atrocity.

We all know she’s running on the gender card. Everything else will be considered irrelevant.

Don’t forget that “Stolen Valor” business in Bosnia where she claimed that she and Chelsea had to dodge bullets getting off a plane there. That was another lie which she just brushed off as “a mistake”.

How is a whopper like that a mistake?

Thank God something is finally sticking.

She's squirmed her way out of things for so many years she thought she was God. I hope all those other things come back to bite her as well.

Hitlery, simply hand the script to Bill Ayers. He’ll make your prose flow, and he won’t even take credit for it until after you are elected!

I heard the working title is, “A is for Arkancide, B is for Benghazi, C is for Coverup”.

Poor St. Hillary, I guess the media’s canonization of her hasn’t gotten through to those idiot Republicans and it’s puzzling to her holiness and her worshipers, er supporters.

Here is her problem...she has always made $hit up. Now people can easily fact check now. If you have done nothing of the past and could control the press it was easy. Now it wont happen. She is screwed.

It’s a work of fiction anyway!!! Done in the shape of a top so it is easy to spin.

She is just making it up anyway so go ahead and lie like she always does. “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

If she was telling the T R U T H she wouldn’t be so worried about someone taking it apart.

Flashback: Hillary's remarks to Jay Leno after publication of It Takes a Village (which was actually ghost-written for her by Barbara Feinman Todd):

Jay, there are literally millions of people who have never read a printed book. You cannot believe, Jay, how many people I have met who have told me that MY book is the FIRST BOOK they have ever read.

That's right, Hillary - we don't believe it

'The challenge for her with this book is to highlight a tangible accomplishment that voters can identify,' Mr Miller told the paper.

That's always been Hillary's challenge. To pretend that she's had an accomplishment. To date, she hasn't.

The Left doesn't care. Many of the rest of us do. She knows that.

I think it's even worse than that. In my observation, most left leaning voters don't even realize that Hillary doesn't have a single noteworthy accomplishment to her name.

They've been so dumbed down, that mere name and face recognition meets their requirements for leadership. Close association, and being identified with the center of leftist power also helps, and Hillary has that in spades.

But that's about the extent of her positives (if you can call them that). Her negatives far outweigh them, though it remains to be seen what effect they'll have on her chances for election.

I can’t wait to read the part about her being born in a Berlin bunker during the waning days of WWII, the name on her birth certificate Hidegarde Braun, and then becoming a poor orphan.
