Posted on 06/15/2014 7:56:45 PM PDT by Kaslin
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now making the media rounds promoting her new book. Initial reports are not very favorable as the price has already been slashed at outlets such as Books a Million and on Amazon; the Green Smoothie Cleanse is topping it in sales.
Mrs. Clinton is obviously gearing up for a 2016 presidential campaign and using this new book to energize supporters and hone her message. Even though Clinton is a political veteran, she has plenty of work to do on her messaging. In one of her first interviews, Hillary has already made a major mistake and taken the focus away from her book and her attempt to revise history.
When Diane Sawyer of ABC News asked Clinton about her $5 million in speaking fees, the former First Lady tried to elicit sympathy. According to Clinton, Well, if you -- you have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt. She claimed that their family faced mortgages and tuition costs for their daughter Chelsea. Remember, this is the same woman who grew a measly $1,000 investment in cattle futures into $100,000, thanks to great connections. She sat on corporate boards and was a high priced attorney prior to becoming First Lady. Her husband also collected $200,000 as President of the United States. Their legal defense fund raised millions to fight the impeachment charges and both Hillary and Bill Clinton earned millions from book deals. In other words, the Clintons were anything but dead broke.
Her remarks were so outrageous that she later had to issue a clarification. In a subsequent interview, Clinton claimed that I fully appreciate how hard life is for so many. This was Hillarys lame attempt to show solidarity with working Americans.
In the Sawyer interview, Hillary also said she has no regrets about her outrageous statement what difference does it make in reference to how the four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya. The former Secretary of State took responsibility for the tragedy, but maintained that she was not making security decisions. In effect, she states that she was in charge, but not completely, a ridiculous defense.
Unbelievably, Clinton says that the Benghazi controversy gives her more of a reason to run for President. It is amazing to think that a tragedy that was exacerbated by Clintons incompetence and then compounded by her lies about the cause of attack would actually fuel a presidential race. Lets not forget that Hillary Clinton told the family members of the Americans killed in Benghazi that the attack was fueled by an anti-Muslim Internet video.
Clearly, on the issue of integrity, Hillary Clinton is severely lacking. In addition, any serious presidential candidate needs to exude a level of competence to the American people. Unfortunately for Hillary Clinton, there were no peace accords during her tenure as Secretary of State and no record of any significant accomplishments. In fact, at a recent news conference, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was unable to think of any positive achievements that occurred while Clinton served as Secretary of State.
The reality is that Hillary Clinton owes her political career to her philandering husband. Without Bill Clinton, Hillary would have never been elected to anything. She has no charisma, makes big mistakes and is obviously not very capable. No wonder she tolerated Bills years of adulterous behavior.
She was always hoping to parlay the mistreated wife image into her own political rise to the White House. It did not work in 2008, as she lost to a junior Senator from Illinois. Will it work in 2016? Lets hope the American people are not that dumb.
She just can’t be truthful. Doesn’t seem to be in her. More you see of her, the less you like her.
She even got on NPR for a tough interview! All she had to say was she ‘evolved’ or changed her mind. Her first inclination is ALWAYS to lie.
Was also surprised ABC’s Diane Sawyer asked reasonable follow ups to the Benghazi lies, “Why weren’t these requests for added security answered?” etc.
Hillary would be an extremely week candidate in the general. Hope she gets the Rat nomination.
Hillary’s Book Tour From hell.... Just her biography of her journey home!!!
When Bill was President and she would enter the West Wing everyone had to scramble into cubes and offices and remain out-of-sight until she left. Under no circumstances was anyone to make eye contact with her, and God help the person who spoke to her without first being spoken to.
What a lovely picture
1. Hillary will win the 2016 democratic presidential nomination, based on name recognition and the belief that it's time for a woman president.
2. GOP conservatives will split the primary vote, giving the nomination to a GOPe like Jeb or Christie.
3. Hillary will win the general election, with significant help from the MSM and voter fraud.
4. President Hillary will take revenge on all those who mocked her in 2014 and 2015. The IRS will be the primary tool for this revenge. But expect other federal agencies to pitch in too.
Please send me congratulations when it has been shown that I am right. My address will be the Federal Re-education Camp nearest to Pittsburgh.
The money quote(s). The reality that feminazis and other dingbat libs simply can't admit.
She has a cleansing effect too, more like “purging”
You’re more optimistic than me. My bet is that we will lose the house and not gain in the senate this fall from voter fraud. Then Katie bar the door! It won’t matter if Hillary wins after that. Get the poocorn.
I'm not encouraged. After all, Obozo was reelected.
If GOP Conservatives do not split the vote, who might end up on the ticket?
Poocorn? You are a pessimist.....
If I had to guess, I'd guess it would be a governor. Perhaps Scott Walker. I see Ted Cruz as a Goldwater-type candidate. Cruz is right on almost every issue, but he would lose just as Goldwater did.
Rand Paul is another interesting possibility. He's not a governor, but he's very popular with the under-40 crowd. That would be a big plus for any GOP candidate.
I could go on, but I need to get back to trying to predict tomorrow's lottery number.
It will be Governor Rick Perry teamed with retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West.
My thoughts also. Whomever chose this outfit for her should be fired. It is not flattering in the least and I often wonder if she takes a good photo that isn’t posed. She’s always making some bizarre face, rolling her eyes or they’re so wide they look like they’re going to pop out of her face to say nothing of the fact that her mouth is always wide open.
I think its another of Illinois’ major exports.
