Questioner who brought Hillary to tears was contacted ahead of time by campaign. A setup?
Chris Core Show WMAL Washington ^ | January 9, 2008 | Chris Core Show

Posted on 01/09/2008 7:55:44 AM PST by RecallMoran

Marianne Pernold was called by Clinton's campaign ahead of time to go to the coffee shop in Ft. Smith New Hampshire (older woman-democrat). She was invited by Terry Norelli of Hillary's campaign. Questioner thinks that Hillary was sincere because the question was personal. Marianne says that immediately after the crying, Hillary resumed the political face.

"Marianne Pernold tells 630 WMAL's Chris Core she truly believes that Senator Hillary Clinton's emotional response to her question at a meeting in New Hampshire was genuine. Pernold asked Clinton how she managed to keep going during the rough campaign, and Clinton's somewhat-teary response has been credited by some pundits for her victory in the Granite state Tuesday night. Pernold tells 630 WMAL she still voted for Barack Obama, becuase she had attended one of his rallies earlier in the week, and she claims Obama's stirring speech brought HER to tears!"

Why is Bill Clinton hugging a chair?

I got invited to 50 political events this season. Does that make me a plant?

This is BS conspiracy stuff. Hillary won because the independents voted for McCain. They believed the MSM that Obama was a shoe-in to win by double digits.

The independents always screw up the primaries here. Just take a look at the candidates that have won over the years. New Hampshire is not now, nor has it ever been a good indicator of what will happen in the rest of the primaries. It isn’t too bad as an indicator of the general election.

Henry Cabot Lodge won NH
Paul Tsongas won NH
Pat Buchanan won NH
Eugene McCarthy won NH on a write-in campaign
Estes Kefauver won NH
John McCain won NH (twice now)

It wasn’t the “tears” it was the media’s 24/7 RUNNING with the tears...

CNN ran it EVERY 30 minutes, ALL NIGHT LONG.
It was like they were running a 14 hour Hillarython.

The lib media needed a horse-race to drive ratings. They got it...

Okay, she can cry. What's it all amount to?? Absolutely nothing. Can you cry is now an issue??Friggin' setup...just like the phony polls...and the media expounding on Hillary's defeat in Iowa.

Good job Mr. Russert...Maybe even better than the cr** you pulled in Florida.

The problem is that most of us have our minds made up. 48 or 49% will never vote for her. There are dems who will vote for here even if she kills a dog on national TV. I hope the “undecideds” and independents are picky up on these regular reports of her phoniness.

I was disappointed that Marianne didn't admit that they had fed her the question. What I did think was interesting was when Chris asked her who she voted for her response was, " It's all over the news that I voted for Obama." Hmmmm... Looks less like she was hand picked if she says she voted for Obama. However, I feel that my cynicism is dragging me into “a vast left-wing conspiracy” world and I don’t like the company.

Remember this..................

Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry burst into tears while campaigning in New Hampshire in 2004 when an unemployed mother spoke about how hard it is educating her kids. Mr. Kerry choked up and had to wipe tears from his eyes. He won the New Hampshire primary and the Democratic nomination.

I think McCarthy lost in 1968—but did surprisingly well for a write-in, leading to Bobby Kennedy entering the race, and LBJ announcing he wouldn’t run for another term.

She choked up because she was thinking of the real possibility that her campaign might be going down in flames, if she lost by a significant margin in NH.

The upside to the loss, for Obama, is that he is now less likely to be Ron Brown'd.

“I think McCarthy lost in 1968”

He lost the popular vote, but won more delegates because of the regional nature of the delegate choice.

The tears/emotion was NOT fake. It just had nothing to do with the words coming from her mouth. She was emotional bec she saw her entitlement to coronation slipping from her cold heartless fingers.

I think that the point is that the Clinton machine didn’t have the bloggers examining them the first time around. From the plants to her turning up the lights on “the iron my shirt” guy driving a Hillary bumpersticker laden car, they are going to be caught in their staged events this time around. They are phoney and the MSM isn’t the only medium reporting their made-for-tv skits this time around.

For example, on this thread alone, we now know that the woman who asked the question appeared to be a Jimmy Carter minion. This kind of thing may matter to someone who otherwise would think that a random coffee house patron touched Hillary’s heart.

BTW, aren’t these coffee house-diner events supposed to look spontaneous? The candidate mixing with the people? If they are all set up with supporters ahead of time then they are no different from rallies at democrat headquarters.

I heard that it was a small group (like EIGHT) invited persons. Have your political invitations been covered by the national media and that exclusive an invite?

If something like this is all it takes to win a major primary, then I fear for America’s future.

NH is major in media attention if not in delegates.

BS. this is just a spin to cover up the obviousness of Hillary’s crying in her milk. It was real this time and her sorrow was because, even though she denies it, she saw the polls and she was loosing her birth right to be president and she cries. Period, end of story.

I find hard to decide what disgusts me more, Hillary’s crying jag or the stupidity of the woman who asked her the set up question and then cried over and voted for Obama...it’s truly upsetting that such stupid people actually get to help decide how to steer the ship of state. Bring back the poll tax!

Yesterday you wrote on another thread, "These people are masters of the triple-twisting-double ganer-back-flip. And they feast on nice people who take things at face value."

If Obama had a double-digit lead - in every poll - the day before the voting, and if the same polling predicted exactly the McCain margin, then please explain how the tears are not a diversion from what seems more likely, fraud.

You can’t really tell from the interview. Marianne was proud that she asked Hillary, “How are YOU doing?”. No one was asking her personal questions and that the intimacy of the question was what brought Hillary to tears. No one was asking her how SHE felt.

Spare me. How many of these libs have ever thought how Bush was doing? How ‘bout Romney? Are his feelings hurt? Is he tired? Oh wait, only libs have feelings (because they have no brains or consciences.)
