Skip to comments.Lynne Cheney Suggests Hillary Approved Monica Piece to ‘Get It Out of the Way’
Posted on 05/07/2014 5:46:10 AM PDT by COUNTrecount
With Hillary Clinton almost assuredly running for president in 2016, Monica Lewinskys Vanity Fair piece today set off a lot of peoples conspiratorial alarm bells, with some suspicion anti-Clinton forces might have been behind it. But on The OReilly Factor tonight, Lynne Cheney suggested it might have actually been pushed by Clintons team themselves.
Guest host Laura Ingraham talked with Cheney about liberal attacks on the Bush administration, and Cheney briefly addressed it before pivoting to Lewinskys piece and making an observation. She said, I really wonder if this isnt 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 wouldnt 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.

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.
Ouch! I could take off on that last part but I think I’ll not. LOL! :>}
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!
I’m not sure about that..Monica’s reemergence, as with Rand Paul’s comments with remind America, as well as inform a whole new generation of voters, that with Hillary you also get Bubba back in the WH..
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.
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?
“Im not sure about that..Monicas reemergence, as with Rand Pauls comments with remind America, as well as inform a whole new generation of voters, that with Hillary you also get Bubba back in the WH..”
The majority of the American people like Bubba. Last poll on his favorability rating was 71%.
The majority of Americans wouldn’t trust WJC to babysit their teenage daughter.
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.
Women like Monica are drawn to tabloidism like a moth to a flame.
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.
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.
Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton. Hillary Benghazi Manpads Clinton.
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 Hillarys 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?
Pat Smith “I am going to speak out every chance I get when Hillary says she wants to be president and tell people NO! Don’t let her be there! Don’t give her a chance to do this to other people! Don’t let her do it!!”
Cheney is a genius
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?
I thought that was BJ knee pads Clinton.
The title is so overboard. We all know that sucking is a major factor in your life.
“The majority of Americans wouldnt 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?
Another one of the democrats finest.
Spot on a very dangerous lot they will not stop until the own the country wonder if we will ever know who are the true handlers of the lot are?.
We can guess.....
This white trash family is now creating the claim that James Madison was pro-gay marriage.
