Video: DNC attendees canít name a single Hillary accomplishment

A clever rejoinder from CNS to the “Ready for Hillary” crowd: What is it, exactly, that you’re ready for? Lest you think they’re cherry-picking the least articulate Democrats they ran into, have a look at this new data from Pew. Alex Seitz-Wald, citing other data from the same poll, frets that Benghazi is more of a liability for Hillary than liberals think because it topped the list of her biggest negatives at 15 percent. Is that really her biggest liability, though? Behold:

pew

She spent eight years in the Senate and another four as secretary of state and yet her time as First Lady (including dealing with her husband’s affair!) is still her second-biggest credential within her own party. That’s her core liability. She’s been an icon for so long that people take for granted that her iconic status is based on major achievements. And it is, sort of — she’s achieved lots of power. She just hasn’t done much with it, which is why voters mention her tenure as SoS as something positive about her without mentioning anything she did as SoS. In fact, Hillary’s a more interesting example of the celebrity candidate than even Obama was. Obama skyrocketed to stardom and didn’t have to worry about the thinness of his actual record; that was, after all, one of his big selling points, that the country was ready for someone young and unspoiled by politics after the Bush years. Hillary’s trying to pull off something much harder, a celebrity candidate whose own fame has been his/her biggest credential for decades yet who, necessarily, will be running on experience. The better the GOP does at giving her the emperor’s-new-clothes treatment, demystifying her by forcing people to focus on how thin her record really is, the harder she’ll have it during the campaign — in theory.

I say “in theory” because … well, just watch these people cooing over her for no particular reason, by their own admission. The same Pew poll I cited above shows that 67 percent approve of the job she did as secretary of state even though there’s no “achievement” from her tenure commensurate with the disaster of Benghazi. There are lots of independents out there who couldn’t name a Hillary accomplishment either and who’d nonetheless behave just like the Democrats you see below. Demystifying an icon is very hard. And don’t forget that Hillary, uniquely among celebrity candidates, is able to run on someone else’s record in lieu of running on one of her own — namely, Bill’s. She won’t be easy to beat, as comically surreally true as this is.

"Last week, the Democratic Party had their winter meeting and MRCTV's Dan Joseph decided to ask DNC committee members and guests if they're ready for Hillary--and why. Some said she had about a hundred moments of greatness when she served under President Obama - but, strangely, couldn't name a single accomplishment of hers, besides marrying Bill Clinton.

Another attendee mentioned Clinton's stance on abortion as a reason to be super excited for Hillary Clinton in 2016. As for her accomplishments, none came to mind, but she noted that Obama saw a reason for her to be nominated as Secretary of State."

Hillary is an astonishingly weak candidate. But, so were Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney. So, to lose to Hillary the GOP needs to nominate another RINO. If they work hard they can still pull defeat from the jaws of victory.

Dodging sniper fire.

Surrogate mamma for Webster Hubbel

Cookie Baker

Hitting pedestrians with her limosense and refusing to stop to give aid.

Showing off Natalie Portman's headlights.

Rolling up dead staffers in area rugs for disposal.

There. That's just a start.

There is a recent thread that suggested Hitlery ordered the attack on Waco.

I didn’t read it as I’m fresh out of tin-foil. But its out there if you wanna search.

Oh I can think of plenty of Her Thighness’ achievements for the morons in the democrat party.

1. She can speak words and stand on her feet at the same time.
2. She is a woman.
3. She is a strong woman.
4. She put up with that lying philandering husband of hers (this is an achievement because it shows she’s in control according to the bizarro thoughts of dem morons).
5. She has a daughter who can also speak and stand at the same time.
6. She’s an excellent money manager (Rose Law billing records).
7. She survived a concussion and can still talk and stand at the same time.
8. She’ll fix Obamacare. Yep, she sure will!
9. She knows how to answer the phone at 3 am (just ask her!).

And so so many more.

But the greatest achievement of the wife of former President Scumbag is .......

10. SHE’S NOT A REPUBLICAN!!!

So there it is, plenty of reasons to vote for Clinton’s third term.

How the heck could she do that?

She was not elected or appointed to any position then.

She was unelected co-president. Billary even told the public this. And Billary would serve a third term if (s)he is elected again.

I’ll have to admit that the National Enquirer has been right several times in the past.

But this one.... hmmm... I’ll have to study the issue more closely.

This outfit is mainly known as a gossip and rumors paper so I take their claims with some caution.

Tell that to the people who worked in the white house travel office.

And before this mess called Obamacare we are dealing with was called that, we called it Romneycare. It wasn’t new when Mitt Romney ran with it, it had been around quite a while. Previously it had been called Hillarycare.

What office did she hold again when Hillarycare was pushed?
