Hillary’s Book Tour From Hell
Townhall.com ^ | June 15, 2014 | Jeff Crouere

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 Hillary’s 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 Clinton’s incompetence and then compounded by her lies about the cause of attack would actually fuel a presidential race. Let’s 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 Bill’s 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? Let’s 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.

There are so many stories about how nasty Hillary Benghazi Clinton is.

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.

My fearless predictions:

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.

Let's see, do we help our people in Benghazi, or abandon them to the terrorists? Hmmm... ah, screw 'em. Wow, now that was a hard choice. I deserve a break.

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.

Question:
If GOP Conservatives do not split the vote, who might end up on the ticket?

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.

She has lady parts. And the sheep want to be the first to elect lady parts.

The media doesn’t like the one with lady parts who should actually be elected.....

How humiliating for poor Hitlery. Her newest literary effort sucks so badly that a book about cleansing one's colon is selling faster. Truly embarrassing.

The “autographed” copies are going for some pretty big bucks on ebay. I kind of figured that where these autographed books were going to end up.

Hillary has been nailed, by a Harry Potter character.
The particular character, Gilderoy, always had copies
of his book handy, and always referred the students
to them. He was proven a fraud, and all his exploits,
were stolen stories from other folks.

Hillary, what about being kicked off the team looking
into Nixon’s dealings?
What about your abuse of White House military staff,
including throwing ashtrays at them?

I am convinced, like that TV show, KARMA is a b...tch,
and coming fer ya!

Well, let’s take a poll.

How many of you would rather read:

1. Hillary’s book
2. The book about cleansing your system with green smoothies.

The only "good" thing to come out of Hillary's disastrous book tour is the new campaign cry: "Another Clinton administration? Are you nuts."

(Cackle) Will look nice on a bumper sticker.

===============================================

Even more delicious is that Hillary's disastrous book roll-out was managed by Dudester Tommy Vietor---Obama's van-driver with ntl security clearance who Obama appointed his NSA advisor; Vietor sat in on WH Situation Room crisis meetings.

Feel safer, now, America?

DUDESTER VIETOR offered up a truly laughable assesment of Hillary''s hellish book tour. “The Secretary enjoyed spending this week talking about 'Hard Choices' and working with President Obama to restore America’s leadership in the world,” he said in an email. “She’ll continue to be relaxed, candid and direct.”

Must be auditioning for a SNL job--producing comical skits.

The mega-wealthy Clintons have money pouring in from everywhere.....without lifting a finger.

Hillary connivingly planned to campaign on "income inequality" .......running as a phony populist. Campaign strategists warned Hillary her "tone" is important.....(so she can better dupe the voters).

THANK YOU KELLY FILE Megyn ran a news clip of Hilly sing-songing "the cancer of inequality"....in a contrived sap-happy, chirpy voice, wearing a h-u-g-e phony grin.

Reminded me of the classic Willam Castle horror movie, "Mr Sardonicus," (whose face becomes frozen in a horrifying grin while robbing the coffin of his father's grave).

Hillary wears her perpetual 2016 game face.

She is merely a media creation and the media can uncreate her just as quickly.
Right now, she is just keeping the negative off Elizabeth Warren until the media officially puts the war bonnet on Warren.

1. Women are the majority of registered voters, whoever the women of America support will be president if the votes are counted honestly.

2. If the votes are NOT counted honestly you can be certain that the fraudulent votes will go to the Democrat candidate.

3. Hillary Clinton ran for the big D nomination in 2008 and was not nominated.

4. All that means that the ONLY REASON that we do not presently have an incumbent female president named Hillary Clinton is that THE WOMEN OF AMERICA refused to support her with enthusiasm. Some will say that the nomination was stolen from her but I don’t believe that could have happened if the women of America had been wholeheartedly in support of her. In fact they could have elected her as a write in candidate had they really wanted to, they have the majority of the votes.

5. Are we to believe that they will support her in 2016 even though they did not support her in 2012? I still do not believe that the majority of American women want to see ANY woman in the white house. I have a young married couple living next door to me and the 27 year old wife says that if we think we have seen a bad president we don’t know anything, just try electing Hillary and you will find out what bad really is.
