Woeful 'This Week' For Hillary: 'Clinton Team Demoralized'
New York Times/NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 12/16/2007 10:53:01 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Worst job in America this morning: Clinton campaign staffer assigned to inform Hillary of her treatment at the hands of ABC's "This Week" panel.

From moderator George Stephanopoulos to former Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile, to the husband-wife duo of Jay Carney of Time and Elaine Shipman of ABC, to conservative sage George Will, it was a decidedly downbeat take on Hillary's fortunes.

Hillary whacked on “This Week.” Ping to Today show list.

Its bad news when a heavily Democrat panel gives Hillary a thumbs down. She's so used to living in a protective MSM cocoon this is like a blast of frigid Arctic air at her campaign. She's at a loss how to spin this around.

Pundits... who cares? All the lefties I know are swooning over Hiltery! and couldn’t care less about any facts. They are orgasmic at the thought of Bill in the WH for 4 more years.

The pundits all thought Mondale would beat Reagan too.

That's Hillary's problem in a nutshell. Most people who say they support her candidacy in reality are casting a proxy vote for Bill, not for her. The truth is she wouldn't be anywhere if she had to run for President in her own right.

Sean Hannity has been talking about backstabbing and bickering going on within Her Royal Thighness' campaign for weeks. That ABC is finally acknowledging it belatedly is a very good sign, showing that the MSM is not entirely under her control. No one could have predicted a discussion such as this on ABC just a few months ago.

The analogy of Hitler in the bunker is a good one. Seems like the Fourth Reich is in bad trouble.

Black Republicans like Condoleezza Rice and Clarence Thomas know firsthand the vicious racism of Democrats. African Americans are about to see how the Clinton machine deals with a black man—Barack Obama—who has forgotten his place.

She is beginning to understand what Kerry had to face. When he was local in Mass., only limited resources would pounce on his war record. He could bring out the usual “vet buddies” to shout down the opposition, ruin a few people, and win an election.

When he went national, the higher stakes brought out the higher commitment by the opposition to get the word out via the Swift Boat Vets, et al. The same thing will happen and is happening to Hillary. Unfortunately it is premature. It should happen AFTER she wins her parties nomination.

And I suspect that is why they are attempting to help her fall on her sword so soon.

I for the life of me cannot figure out why some people here are so darn excited over the idea of Hillary losing the primaries to Obama.
What do some of you think, that the MSM is going to somehow be hard on him like Clinton?

They will not allow a single negative story to be published on him and anyone that is critical of him at any level will be called a racist.

Dont think that will happen? If that guy wins the nomination I can just predict around September all the post about how the press isn’t being critical of Obama and how the GOP candidate cant lay a glove on him because he’s afraid.

And let’s not get started on the polls that will show 90% of people who cant wait to vote for him!

So why some of you are having just a great time on Hillary’s troubles, I hope you guys have a plan B when it comes to Obama.

And making fun of his middle name isn’t a plan B.

And Hillary has a new problem now - the clock.

Geeting closer to Christmas, folks’ minds will be on the holidays, caught up in last-minute shopping, celebrating, etc. With a Jan. 3rd deadline, it’s almost too late for Iowa now.

Of course they are. She is a lefties wet dream. But they are not who elect the next president any more than the far right is. Those two factions will always vote the party. The battle is being fought in other places. That is considered permanently occupied territory.

I was thinking along the same lines, insofar as the GOP possibly needing a plan B. But if Obama’s left-wing positions aren’t enough to make him unelectable in the general election, his Islamic background on top of that surely will be his undoing. I can’t see a majority of the American people buying that package, regardless of race.

Come on people.

How many times are you going to be fooled by a scripted MSM story arc? this one will have the Beast back on top in no time, and in doing so will establish her (at least to the MSM which controls most of the public debate) as a courageous and noble “fighter” - And who better to lead this country to the Leftist Nirvana the MSM pines so desperately for?

The Clinton mafia isn’t through, not by a long shot.

The faithful will not let their Beast goddess fail no matter what.

It's really quite simple. We can not stand the idea of the Clintons getting back into the White House. It is our greatest fear, period. If Hillary loses the primaries, then that can't happen. If Obama is the nominee, it will be dealt with. The same things you say about the GOP being afraid to go after Osama (being called a racist) could be applied to going after Hillary (being called a sexist bigot). Getting rid of Hillary NOW should excite you.

It would excite me more if I knew that Obama wasn’t going to have the whole of the entire left-wing establishment pushing him like they have never pushed anything before, while our side has no idea whom among 6 people will be the nominee and no idea which part of the party will jump ship when one wins the nod.

Bill had better watch out. If he croaks the sympathy vote gets her nominated.
And she’d have him killed just like all the others to get the power she craves.

WHAT? You claim 90% of people? WHAT people would they be? And as far as his name not being a problem, it is apparent, very apparent you haven't talked to liberals about this. I live in a dense nest of them and believe me when I say they have NO confidence in HUSSEIN OBAMA getting many votes when the time comes to pull the lever.

Think again. Consider the possibilities of a Clinton “vice-Presidency”...a word almost created for the Clintons, by the way... Remember, only one heartbeat from the Presidency sits the VP. And who’d bet on the survival of any Democrat President with Hillary as #2?

Love to see the Vegas odds on that one...

Oh I didn’t mean that literally about the 90%. I should have said the polls that the MSM will shove out there that will show the nation unable to contain their excitement to vote for Obama. The polls of course will be bogus, but bogus polls is all part of their propaganda effort.

I do hope you’re right about the lefties not being to up on Obama.

Could be, but if we look back on history, the only thing the KKK was missing on it's emblem was a donkey.

Al Gore's father lead the democrats in the fight to destroy the equal rights amendment.

Robert Byrd - Senior democrat senator and Grand Dragon of the KKK.

Really, if racism is a factor in this election, it's going to come from the democrats.

An unjust attack on Republicans on the matter of race will see a backlash so large it could destroy the race pimps in one fell swoop. I'd like to see that personally.

"We don't hate Obama because he's a mulatto who won't acknowledge he's half white. We reject him because he's a socialist who wants to enslave all races with socialist tyranny, not just the black man."

Believe me, those of us who see only content of character over color will win that battle. The race pimps need to be run out of this nation once and for all. My children are moreno and I will not accept the threat of democrat racial tyranny to corrupt their future.

Her experience, that is, where you can point to some episode between '93 and 2001 where she clearly was in charge, one was selecting the first Attorney General, which was a train wreck, exceeded only by the train wreck of the health care plan.

It IS kind of funny when someone with a zero batting average points out she has more experience than the rookie.

BONUS COVERAGE: WILL'S WITHERING HUCK HACK

Don't mark George Will down as "undecided" on Mike Huckabee. The veteran conservative pundit made clear he'd be at wit's end if the GOP were to nominate the former Arkansas governor.

WILL: Huckabee, this week, when it was learned he that he gave more clemencies -- one every four days -- to convicted criminals in Arkansas than the three preceding governors combined, including Bill Clinton.

This week, also we learned, he goes to New Hampshire, the New Hampshire affiliate of the National Education Association [teachers' union], which is the most loyal Democratic constituency, which in 2004 endorsed Dean on the Democratic side and no one on the Republican side, this week endorsed Huckabee on the Republican side out of gratitude for his: a. support for higher taxes, which public employees usually like, and b. his opposition to school choice. If that man is nominated!
