NY Times Says Even Hillary's Fans Are 'Flailing' In Attempt to Tout Her Achievements at State
NewsBusters ^ | 5-17-14 | By Tim Graham

Posted on 05/17/2014 10:32:19 PM PDT by kingattax

Via The Right Scoop, we noticed that young New York Times reporter Nicholas Confessore – a veteran of the liberal opinion journal The Washington Monthly – thinks Hillary Clinton has a resume problem on her way to the White House, and it’s not Benghazi, exactly.

On MSNBC’s Jansing & Co. Friday, he said “I actually think that the real thing they have to overcome, the question everyone’s asking is ‘What was her biggest accomplishment as Secretary of State?’And you know, I just see flailing on this question, from her own supporters, I don’t see any good answer, or at least a solid, strong answer. It’s sort of surprising to me.”

I’d like to see a post-Benghazi version of Hillary’s “red phone moment” campaign commercial.

That is her Achilles heel. That and the fact she is a lesbian. The Clinton’s are terrified that somehow she may be forced to come out. Despite all the pro homosexual propaganda it is by no means clear that the American people will elect a homosexual as the first woman President. Good bet their private internal polls are telling them just that.

Okay. Her two biggest “achievements” were the screw up at Benghazi and that “Reset” button thing. Other than that, she just gallivanted around the planet like a lost puppy on the taxpayers’ dime.

Bill and Hillary... enjoy! I know we will.

Well, I can think of one.

She has somehow fooled X amount of idiots in this country into believing that she is the smartest woman in the world.

Or maybe she didn’t even do that, maybe they just fooled themselves, because they are idiots.

But on second thought, I’ve got it.

Her greatest achievement is that she married a dude who diddled a fat chic in the oval office.

If she hadn’t of done that, she would be nowhere and no one would give a flying crap about her.

If he finds it so surprising that her supporters can’t tout her accomplishments, perhaps he should just name a few of them himself. Doing that should be a really easy thing to do, shouldn’t it?

I would also add to her resume the money that was and remains list while she was SOS and the refusal to list Boko Haram as a terrorist group.

Oh, and don't forget the support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt to the further Islamification of Libya>

If Hill has a full out stroke, expect there to be all manner of secrecy. Both she and Bill are experienced at fooling the American people. FDR did it for years, even with WW2 going on. Just like with FDR, the Clintons still have most the press on short, tight leashes. Even though some are now making noises as though they’re tired of anything Clinton based, believe you me, if Hillary wins the nomination they will come out full throttle for her Highness. Whoever thr GOP runs cannot be the type to get caught up in concerns of playing nice. It will type someone who can turn on the aggression as needed, then turn on the tenderness as need be, so not to look robotic or one dimensional.

Remember when she so graciously “welcomed” George and Laura Bush to the WH for their pre-Presidency tour? I watched that and I knew how completely fake she is.

No one cares about “accomplishments” or failures or choice of sex partners or marriage or health or scandals or shrill disposition.

She is the Next One, still a frontrunner after all these years and failures, already coronated by the media, already labeled Centrist and appealing and grandma and The Smartest Woman In the World.

We do not have an electorate or an opposition party that challenges all that.

I think he's doing what he has to so he's not murdered by this cabal. At the end of the day, they won't care how loyal he remained, something bad will come his way.

Silly newspaper. Obama proved that democrats don’t need a track record or accomplishments. A slogan and a willing press (the propaganda arm of the democrat party) is all you need.

People will definitely be able to list Obama’s accomplishments.
-Wrecked the entire economy.
-Wrecked the entire healthcare system.
-Wrecked the middle east.
-Wrecked race relations.

Please feel free to add to the list.

AT least Martinez has been a governor. I continue to say we need a GOVERNOR to be President...not a mere legislator and certainly not a figurehead like the Clown, who is run by Valerie Jarret or Hildabeast who is run by her cabal of feminazi pals.

Martinez’s nomination could be a very good thing against the Bent One’s “wife”, that and the fact that she USED TO BE a Democrat.

She could really turn things around on the Demon Rats...make them turn their attitude around regarding immigration, wouldn’t it???

I don’t know much about how conservative she is, though.

“A slogan and a willing press (the propaganda arm of the democrat party) is all you need.”

Right you are. I have already seen their media strategy in motion: simply ASSERT that Hillary was the greatest SOS ever, who restored America’s place in the world, defeated terrorism, achieved a great relations with Russia, Iran, and North Korea, and assured world peace, while causing prosperity and full employment at home. And she’s the sexiest woman alive. 80 % of the public is only vaguely aware that other nations exist, and will believe it.

Don’t think FDR, think Wilson. Wilson had a stroke and it was his wife running the White house for an extended period. In Hillary’s case it will be Bill running the place.

” their media strategy in motion: simply ASSERT that Hillary was the greatest SOS ever...”

You are close. They won’t claim the greatest SOS ever, as she has no positive or significant accomplishments there. The way they will spin it is she will be one of the most experienced candidates ever - First lady for 8 years as co-President helping our beloved Bill to usher in one of the longest eras of peace and prosperity ever, elected as US Senator in her own right, Sec’y of State, blah blah blah...

chris37 nailed the reality - Her greatest achievement is “that she married a dude who diddled a fat chic in the oval office...she would be nowhere and no one would give a flying crap about her.” Her stand-by-your-man-fake-act and all the other lies (like she only learned the truth one morning shortly before Bill came clean to the American people) allowed the press to create for her a person deserving sympathy. Until then, she was not generally liked by the average person. She is definitely politically beatable on so many fronts.
