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:
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.
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.
Surrogate mamma for Webster Hubbel
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.
in the white house she threw an ashtray and almost hit bubba....does that count ?
RE: Waco Texas
OK, I’m a little behind on the news.... how the heck was Hillary involved in Waco Texas?
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.
RE: There is a recent thread that suggested Hitlery ordered the attack on Waco.
How the heck could she do that?
She was not elected or appointed to any position then.
Hitting pedestrians with her limosense and refusing to stop to give aid.
Never heard of that one! Details?
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.
The lesbian Janet Reno was installed by Her Thighness.
That’s all you need to know.
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?
Where were you? She was Co-President!
And Janet Reno was her deal and Janet wiped out and set fire to all those little children.
Need anymore be said?
Yep. But you & I both know they also landed this WHOPPER of a story ......
That recipe for Hillary’s Chocolate Chip Cookies is for publication purposes only, it is not the ‘family recipe’ used by many of the Rodham’s. The Family recipe includes 3/4 cup of ground Arsenic, along with just a ‘dash’ of freshly rolled Strychnine. Oh, and don’t forget to mix powdered Ex-lax with the white confectioners sugar for a memorable topping display.
Huma was reportedly brought on as an intern while Bill was entertained by Monica...
Unelected co-president. And she was holding closed door meetings.
And before that it was called Kennedycare (which is what Obama TRIED to call it after fat dead red Ted died).
A “twofer” the adulterer called it.
The same way Valarie Jarrett ordered the bombing of Libya to clear out Qadaffi’s tribe and make it safe for Al Qaida: by ordering her underling with a higher “official” title to do it for her.
Well, using her own approach to questions about her........What the ph*que difference does that make, anyway?
Hillary Healthcare which led to a republican takeover in congress.
Hillary(!) has several accomplishments: 1) abysmal taste in wardrobe — what is it with those ugly pant suits (?), and 2) she drinks alcohol like a thirsty camel. Other than those two items, none.
You know, maybe a drinking contest could settle the Ukraine situation. Hillary versus Putin, shot for shot. Victor gets the Ukraine as a puppet state. NWO or Russian Federation?
Hillary has a famous last name.
Got to be co president despite the law.
Made a ton of money in cattle futures.
Found the missing rose law firm billing records.
Lost a dear friend, Vince Foster
Dodged snipper fire.
Got elected senator from a state she didn’t live in.
Got appointed sexretary of state with no qualifications.
Dodged any accountability for Benghazi.
Looks qualified to be a democrat candidate for president.
She’s become very wealthy.
Committed the perfect crime?
The list goes on and on, but, as has already been mentioned. the number one reason the left loves Hillary so much is.....
She is not a Republican.
Well, she did get Webb Hubble to commit adultery once.
To the young lady...have you met Bill Clinton, no, he would like you, I think so...
If you do meet him, just don’t be wearing a blue dress.
Hillary’s accomplishments amount to no more than checking off all the right folks and venues on a political dance card, as if merely being in some place at some time is an accomplishment.
As Secretary of State she had two jobs. For the White House her job was to do nothing nor attempt to accomplish anything on foreign policy, that was not HER job; it was the preserve of the White House. Obama had her IN his administration, to keep her from being a kibbitizer from the sidelines. Hillarys other job was for the geopolitical influence peddling business of Billary, to get around and get as many photo ops with as many foreign dignataries as possible, as though a photo op translates to an accomplishment.
Her major accomplishment is to have (so far) stayed out of prison for her many,many crimes.
She did it @ her Chapaqua estate. She hit a pedestrian and ordered the secret service to not stop. Medical attention was needed.
Hughie and Tony bought and traded some nut trees using her name..........................
Some people say Hillary gave the order that caused 30 American children to be burned to death at Waco... I assume she counts that as a success...
A story about it was posted here a few days ago...
Oh, they’ll find one to mention shortly. It will be attached to the horse head they wake up with in their beds.
Hillary also ordered the bombing to start in Bosnia!!
