Lynne Cheney Suggests Hillary Approved Monica Piece to ‘Get It Out of the Way’
Medialite ^ | May 6th, 2014 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 05/07/2014 5:46:10 AM PDT by COUNTrecount

With Hillary Clinton almost assuredly running for president in 2016, Monica Lewinsky‘s Vanity Fair piece today set off a lot of people’s conspiratorial alarm bells, with some suspicion anti-Clinton forces might have been behind it. But on The O’Reilly Factor tonight, Lynne Cheney suggested it might have actually been pushed by Clinton’s team themselves.

Guest host Laura Ingraham talked with Cheney about liberal attacks on the Bush administration, and Cheney briefly addressed it before pivoting to Lewinsky’s piece and making an observation. She said, “I really wonder if this isn’t an effort on the Clintons’ part to get that story out of the way. Would Vanity Fair publish anything of Monica Lewinsky that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t want in Vanity Fair?”

Cheney pointed out that Rand Paul had been bringing up Monicagate earlier this year and looked like it would be a big issue further on, so, she said, maybe the Clintons are “getting it out of the way” so they can call it “old news” by the time 2016 comes around.

Book = money. That's all this is about. I'm sure Bubba is arranging and approving "everything"

Think the girl would have had a better life if she had just kept her mouth shut.

I don’t know if its still true but one of George Soros daughters in law used to be the editor of Vanity Fair.

Does anyone think a liberal rag like Vanity Fair would have published such an interview without Hillary’s OK?

I absolutely believe that Vanity Fair gives Hillary veto power over any article that they would publish.

Nothing get past the Clintons without being analyzed through their political calculus, IMO.
I can see Cankles letting this pass, just so it DOES get played out now, ahead of the grind of the campaign. I don’t thing Cheney is off the mark at all.

I think Hillary’s idea wasn’t about getting this out of the way before 2016, it was about getting Benghazi out of the way right NOW!

Watching the five yesterday I was yelling at the TV.

How can people not know by now that nothing gets printed in these outlets without approval from their boss, the upper tiers of the democrat party

Lynn Cheney was on with Laura ingraham who went with her suggestion, Megan picked it up. Nothing gets printed in vanity fair w/o Hillary approval.

Duh

What do people think Hillary does all day? She doesn’t garden. Doesn’t go to the supermarket.

Yes a lot of people think that things get past Hillary. It took til ten pm on fox for anyone to show up with a clue unless they’re not allowed by Hillary to think this stuff up

Does anyone think Monica isn’t under Clinton control?

The majority of the American people like Bubba. Last poll on his favorability rating was 71%.

That was my first thought.

Hill & Bill provide the ghost writer and the publisher, maintain editorial control, and boom....issue is over.

well...in their small minds.

How does it help hillary? hillary’s a hag, and Monica Lewinsky is now a beautiful woman. I think it adds to the suspicion that hillary let Bill play, as long as she could have the power and prestige. The fake women’s libber nazis might say “poor hillary”, but normal women not so much. Normal woman know you have to keep yourself appealing to keep a guy.

"How does it help hillary?"

It helps with Hillary's war on women meme. She was poised to be attacked because Bill blatantly took advantage of a naive young intern with stars in her eyes and then attacked her when the story came out. so here comes Monica saying Bill did't exploit or take advantage of her, it was all consensual, and the big blue meanie was thet evil internet where all the right wing conspirators hang out. It was the right wing republicans that harassed and humiliated her because they are waging a war against women. Hillary was going to have to deal with the Monicagate issue eventually, better now than having it as a distraction during the campaign season.

I get the reasoning from the pro-hillary storm troopers. I'm just saying that I'm not sure it works in the real world. Real women can usually tell when their guy is cheating. The new Monica creates the suspicion that hillary must have known.

Unless "our side" (a large percentage of whom would rather have hillary as pres than have a conservative) reinforces the "poor hillary" rhetoric, it's a miscalculation hy hillary's overly self absorbed clique.

How's this for a campaign quip? Hillary didn't know about Benghazi, she didn't know about Monica? C'mon.

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm not saying it is a samrt move just a calculated one.

As a fan of House of Cards, it isn’t a stretch to believe all sorts of “dirty deeds”. Interesting that the show reflects the “values” of Democrats.

“Does anyone think a liberal rag like Vanity Fair would have published such an interview without Hillary’s OK?”

You got that right. This morning on an NYC talk/info-tainment show, Lewinsky continued to get trashed. Kenneth Starr got trashed. Republicans got trashed. HRC reprised her role as martyr. Bill, Hillary and Chelsea triumphed again.

The murders at Benghazi. The little islamist was evidently getting-it-on somewhere and couldn’t be bothered. hitlery is up to her gray roots in this. She’d evidently denied Stevens added security. Why? As huma reports directly to the muslim brotherhood, what orders were transmitted to hillary in that process?

For me her tenure at State, Iran nukes, loosing Egypt, invading Libya, Arab Spring all bad.

But things to watch coming back

Suha Arafat saying anti Semitic things while Hillary sat passively and then Hugged the deceased Terrorists Wife.

Hillarycare. How she held secret hearings

Hillary and Huma relationship, and Huma’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood

I like this whole meme as a counter-attack to the dems claim of a “war on women” by republicans. Laura made an excellent argument of how the left ridiculed a 20 year old kid and threw her under the bus to protect the sexual predator in chief. And Hillary was the architect of the “Bimbo eruption” strategy of hunting down and silencing all the women that Bill had abused over the years.

Hillary achieved a General’s rank in the war on women.

I bet old Hilterly would love to get a lot of things ‘out of the way’ such as her husbands ‘other’ affairs and probably her ‘affairs’ with ‘others’....just a smoke screen on the upcoming investigation...watch out Congressman Goudy your head is on the chopping block, remember Ken Starr?

“The majority of Americans wouldn’t trust WJC to babysit their teenage daughter.”

True. However, if Bill Clinton could run for a third term as President in 2016, against any Republican, he would probably win. One thing Clinton succeeded in with the Monica affair, he eliminated sexual misbehavior as a disqualifier for the job of POTUS in the minds of most Americans. What does that say for our society and our culture?
