Hillary Clinton: I Refused to Attack Sarah Palin
Breitbart ^ | 6 Jun 2014 | by CHARLIE SPIERING

Posted on 06/07/2014 12:50:38 AM PDT by kingattax

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reveals in her new book that Barack Obama’s team asked her to attack Alaska Governor Sarah Palin after Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) chose her as his running mate in the 2008 presidential race.

"[The Obama camp] immediately issued a dismissive statement and reached out to me in hopes I would follow suit,” she wrote. “But I wouldn’t.”

The details of the event have been published by CBS, which has already obtained a copy of the book scheduled for release on June 10.

“I was not going to attack Palin just for being a woman appealing for support from other women,” she wrote. “I didn't think it made political sense, and it didn't feel right. So I said no."

I can believe the Obama team wanted to attack Palin tho when one compares records, Palin trumped Obama in accomplishments. Maybe Clinton saw that as a losing strategy since she also had few accomplishments.

First on the list of hits was Christie, check, next Palin, in progress check, next? Dr. Carson, Herman Caine, Ted Cruz...They have a very long list to be starting 2 years out. Funny I don’t think Jeb or any rinos are on the list.

That’s why Hillary, Obama and the rest of the democrat cabal use hired thugs to do the dirty work. Obama himself didn’t physically pour the accelerant at the entry ways and attempt to burn down Sarah Palin’s church right after the 2008 elections.... while congregants were still inside.. but the idea his operatives weren’t involved is preposterous.

“I didn’t think it made political sense, and it didn’t feel right. So I said no.”

Pretty much the same stance she takes when it comes to answering any type of question,too.

Bill to Hillary:

“Hilly, you’re not even a good liar anymore. And you were never the liar that I was.”

Romney told her that HE and Rove would lead the attack
on Gov. Palin and her children. And the backstabber did.

Yes, she did. I remember that well. She even said she’d like to sit down and have a discussion over coffee...to which Hillary answered smugly in a televised interview that they likely wouldn’t have much in common.

Yes he did. His ‘lipstick on a pig’ reference, complete with his middle finger ‘scratch’ were most certainly directed at her.

Hillary also refused to answer Ambassador Stephen's call for more security in Libya as 9/11 approached. That is the issue she is trying to deflect attention from with this whitewashed memoir.

Interpretation: “I did not attack Sarah Palin who is a woman, therefore, you cannot attack me because I am a woman.”

Putin said it best: Hillary Clinton never does anything with “grace.” Or aplomb for that matter.

HILLARY CLINTON: I REFUSED TO ATTACK SARAH PALIN

My thoughts on this are that Hillary and John McCain are joined at the hip and she only refused because of him - not Sarah. She might have had some of her own operatives doing the dirty work as well - the Libs can’t be trusted.

Hillary would see Bill have another Intern in the White House. This despite her Bimbo patrols.

She's another politically correct Liberal like Obama who will only push more Socialism and Depravity upon this country.

She refused to attack Sarah Palin because Sarah would perform the Wasilla smackdown on her.

The one she gave Obama,a two days ago on Birddog is a classic.

She just doesn’t want Palin to attack her during her presidential run.

Didn't work for me.

Even with the Wade Hubble telescope's original fuzzy, out-of-focus optics, it couldn't miss seeing that massively unappealing set of buttocks. Not a chance.

Smoked another BS meter.

The attack on Palin came straight from the psycho skank.

With Palin as VP she would likely be the first woman president, not Hillary, and the psycho skank couldn’t have that.

If you paid close attention to the attacks against Palin they often sounded like something coming from a jealous teenage girl.

It often sounded like a teenage girl jealous of another teenage girls looks because she saw her boyfriend talking to the better looking girl.

The attacks involved the way Palin looked a lot of times.

That didn’t come from any mans camp, that came from a woman, and a not very attractive woman.
