The Crying Game? Hillary brings back the tears

The Crying Game? Hillary brings back the tears

Blogger Jason George reports that Sen. Hillary Clinton had another teary moment this morning, this time in New Haven, Conn. Tears served Clinton well leading up to the New Hampshire primary.

George, who writes “The Swamp" blog for the Tribune Co.’s Washington Bureau, reports that a doctor who was introducing Clinton began to choke up, which led to Clinton's eyes filling with tears.

The tears apparently followed a reference to Clinton’s youthful fashion choices. George reports that "the doctor was saying how proud he was that sheepskin coat- (and) bell- bottom-wearing young woman he met in 1972 was now running for president."

Clinton last welled up at an event in New Hampshire, about two days before that state's first- in-the-nation primary. A few days earlier, Clinton finished third in the Iowa caucuses, and many pundits and polls said she might lose New Hampshire as well.

After winning in New Hampshire, Clinton said she “found my voice” in her emotional moment.

In NH, the question was "Who does your hair?" -- and Hillary teared up.

In CT, the doctor comments on her youthful fashions -- and Hillary tears up.

I don't picture Margaret Thatcher behaving like this.

Oh, it's cryin' time again. You don't believe me.

That it won't be long before it's cryin' time.

Worked for Bill when Ron Brown was laid in his cold, cold grave.

Hillary just trying to be Bill, she even has a Huma on her arm.

I hope Romney wins this election if for no other reason McCain and Hillary will be sent to the dumpster forever.

Tears.

Crowd plants.

Race-baiting.

This woman doesn’t deserve a Senate seat, let alone the POTUS.

I hope everyone has seen the video of BJC going from chortling laughter while walking with a friend to somber tears within 2 steps (after seeing a camera trained on him).

It wasn't a coat, she just didn't shave her back in those days.

With all this crying she’s had to do, Hillary must have absolutely no nose hair left by now.

Crying worked before, why not again? We will have a weepy president. Putin also must have tears in his eyes from roaring with laughter at the images of Horrible Hillary resorting to the crying act at a meeting of world leader, Obama the empty suit having thousands of Americans enthralled with emotional speeches about nothing, and Crazy McCain raging and giggling and talking to voices in his head.

It’s obviously a well practiced artifice. NOTHING the Beast does is genuine. The evil inner core will never be revealed until too late.

Now all that is needed are “sexist” protestors holding signs reading “CLEAN MY SOCKS,” “BAKE SOME COOKIES” or something to that effect, (similar to the “IRON MY SHIRTS” sign holders). Then, the sympathy vote will all come out for the Hildebeast.

“A “President Hillary” in Jan 09 would make me cry.”

As most of us would. I’d rather be forced to deal with an Obama than Hillary presidency.

Same here. He has some strange ideas but at least Obama is not a criminal.

“He has some strange ideas but at least Obama is not a criminal.”

It would be justice to have the Ron Paul/Hillary Clinton trial bring Ms. Clinton’s criminal acts brought to light.

This entire election fiasco can't be over soon enough, for me.

Part of me wants to see a weepy, primary-damaged Hillary have to face our guy in November and be trounced, and another part of me wants Obama to win tomorrow and end the Clinton's political aspirations here and now. I am just worn out by these people and their endless, tired, utterly transparent political machinations and shenanigans. These shameless antics, like this one, are just sickening.

Please, Lord, let this woman lose and retire them from the political landscape.
