Via PJTV, I know you think youve heard this joke before and you have, repeatedly, even though were still 18 months out from the election but there are good reasons to watch. For starters, stick with it long enough and youll find a kid whos writing his thesis about Hillary naming Benghazi as one of her major achievements. No foolin. The bar for these man-on-the-street interviews is low but somehow this guy managed to sneak underneath.
The real reason to watch, though, is that Michelle Fields wisely took care to ask these people first how enthusiastic they are about her. Answer, in most cases: Very, despite the fact that they go blank when asked to name something impressive she did as Secretary of State (plus the fact that some of them couldnt have been more than five years old when she was first elected to the Senate). Theyre enthusiastic not because of what shes done but because of who she is, the would-be first woman president. And thats what makes her formidable realistically, youre not going to reason someone out of supporting a candidate for who she is. The Hopenchange phenomenon of 2008 is proof enough of that. What makes Hillarys achievement in identity politics potentially even greater than Obamas is that shes supposed to be running as the experienced candidate, not the fresh-faced naif whose record is necessarily thin because hes come from outside the Beltway to shake things up. Shes the ultimate brand politician posing as someone whos running on a long string of achievements. I dont know how you attack that given that most of the ugliest stuff about the Clintons has been public knowledge for decades and is already priced into that brand. Maybe younger voters will think twice when the scandals of the 90s are endlessly rehashed, but I wouldnt bet on it. Just listen to them here. With Hillary on the ballot, some segment of the population is going to treat the election as a de facto referendum on whether its time for a woman president. They wont be dissuaded by ads or Benghazi or Monica Lewinsky or anything else. The only real mystery for election 2016 is whether theres enough of them among independents, in addition to stalwart party-line Democrats, to give Hillary an insurmountable majority.
You could end the sentence right there.
Unaccomplished? Didn’t stop Romney from getting the nomination. And at least he got his version of HillaryCare passed.
The utter stupidity of so many of our citizens seems endless.
When asked about his conservative accomplishments he piped right up with: Got married, raised a family.
George Washington U. must be easier to get accepted into than most junior colleges. These folks are absolutely clueless.
Who are you going to believe — my beautiful models or your pathetic reality?
Oops, wrong thread, though there is some similarity between Hillary and the Antarctic.
Video at link or...
I had to look to see who she is.
I understand your post better now.
It will work for them, but it would not work for us. Liberals vote plumbing; conservatives vote principles. As the author says, the only question in 2016, if Hillary! is the Democrats' candidate, is how many non-liberals will vote plumbing rather than principles.
“The utter stupidity of so many of our citizens seems endless”
And these are college students, at a supposedly “good” school with “amazingly” high requirements (and costs) for admission.
I know that I would go to jail, but it would almost be worth it to punch out the next 20-something that called anything or anyone not actually amazing, amazing.
Now, I am certainly aware that every generation believes that the next one is lacking in various ways, but these people are just one very small step above genuine mental deficiency compared to myself and my peers at that age, IMO.
“Oops, wrong thread, though there is some similarity between Hillary and the Antarctic.”
Hmmmm...yes, I see it...bleak, cold, dry, and generally inhospitable.
When you compare Hillary’s lack of experience with Gov Palin’s executive accomplishments, the irony is patent.
