Hillaryís Doomed if She Canít Learn to Talk About Her Privilege
Daily Beast ^ | 6-27-2014 | Keli Goff

By any standard Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign pre-show masquerading as a book tour has been a disaster. Book sales have been lower than expected. Monica Lewinsky is back in the public eye and the undeclared but likely candidate has made enough gaffes to put her in the running for the Mitt Romney Medal. (Clinton recently conceded some of her recent word choices have been “inartful.”)

The gaffes, strangely enough, are rooted primarily in the issue that has long been one of the Clinton brand’s greatest strengths: how to make America an equal playing field for the little guy and big guys alike.

Translation: She’s not a good enough hypocrite. Imagine Hillary Clinton’s being an inadequate hypocrite ... it boggles the mind. What are they looking for?

Music teachers will recognize the problem; a student who can manipulate the instrument accurately but simply has no feel for interpretation. There's no music, just a sequence of pitch changes. For someone as glib and fluid in his prevarication this must drive Bill crazy. "Why is this so hard for you, Hil?"

Hillary is wooden, clumsy. This is why she campaigned for the Senate in NY with her patented listening tour. She can't risk the danger of unscripted questions because she's too slow on her feet, too socially tone-deaf, to respond without doing herself further damage.

Excuse me??? When the Hell has this ever been one of Hillary Rodham Clinton's "brand strengths"? When? She has been a money-grubbing elitist all her life.

She’s going to get swept aside for a younger model that will be even more of a naked Marxist.

It will be a female. She will be Hispanic or some minority, and she will be in her late-30s.

The article says Hillary needs to engage in semi-honest spin ... problem is, she already went with her instinct and lied and lied and lied some more.

It really doesn’t matter. Just like 40% of the mindless idiots (low info crowd) voted for Obama because he is black (they forget about his white side), the same 40% will vote lockstep for this witch because she’s a women and a Clinton. Every modern electoral indicator which predicts wins and losses were almost solidly against Obama last time and he won.
And the mushy 10% in the middle will fall into line via the same trap Obama used in 2008 and elect this winch if the GOP doesn’t get a spine and go all out and let the chips fall. Sadly there is no evidence of this happening!!

The American Electorate is doing exactly what Khrushchev predicted the Soviet’s would do 60 years ago. Sad!

She looks like a basking reptile - no offense intended to one’s snake or dragon.

IMO Hillary is incapable of sufficiently disguising her innate arrogance and belief in her natural superiority over everyone else.

She truly believes she is a more highly evolved person with the destiny to rule those beneath her. That’s you, people.

So, you figure it's going to be Julian Castro?

This is the best summer I’ve had since I was a kid. The Democrats are stumbling around like a bunch of drunks trying to play hopscotch.

“Oh, we are very poor.”

“You don’t even know what poor is. My family is really poor!”

“You think you’re poor? We had to eat Swiss watches to survive!”

“Swiss watches! We’d have killed to eat Swiss watches. All we had to eat was Chinese watches, and then, an hour later, you were hungry again. But you could never be sure of the time because they were Chinese watches and not Swiss watches.”

“You had Chinese watches? All we had was a Vietnamese sundial which was a stick. You just got hungrier as you ate it.”
