Skip to comments.Hillary: You know, the American political system is the most brutal in the world
Posted on 06/16/2014 8:05:50 AM PDT by chessplayer
Lets face it there was never going to be a good time for a gaffe of this scale, but its hard to think of a worse time for it. In Iraq, where Hillary Clinton signed off on the zero option rather than push for Barack Obama to reach an agreement for residual forces, an al-Qaeda spinoff marches on Baghdad in its effort to establish a new Islamist caliphate. In Afghanistan, fifty people died in what is largely considered a successful election campaign. In Burma, which Hillary claims as one of her crowning achievements, the winner of an election from two decades ago has finally been released from home imprisonment while the military junta tries to balance its need for commerce with its desire for power. Syria just held a mockery of an election, which resulted in the continued despotism of the man Hillary once hailed as a reformer, Bashar al-Assad. The country to which she gave a reset button is overrunning Ukraine.
But you know which country has the most brutal politics? Er, the one her husband dominated for almost a decade:
Politics is so unpredictable, Clinton responded. Whoever runs has to recognize that the American political system is probably the most difficult, even brutal, in the world.
Then go someplace where you like it better.. like Cuba
It sure is Hilda! More brutal than any other! Why, it’s just like Iran, Egypt and Tunisia for goodness sake! /s
Maybe. Let’s ask Vince Foster.
Sure. Much more brutal than say ..North Korea.
Ron Brown is unavailable for comment.
If he's not around you could check with Ron Brown.
Gweneth Paltrow redux! Does this remark not sound exactly like Paltrow’s compaint of a few weeks ago? For which she took a beating from an open letter penned by a vet of the Iraq- Afghanistan war, who knew what being in battle truly was.
Hillary still expects a coronation of no accountability, no debt, easy victory, bought and paid for.
Whaddayou doin’ up so early dern it??
Hey! I covered that already. Don’t come sailing in here four seconds late and think you’re the chit!
I picture LIV's with rings through their noses attached to leashes held by the "news" media (most of which is entertainment - circuses anyone?). The LIV is entertained and the Dems get more power.
The smartest person in the world.
Just keep on talking there hildabeast.
Sheesh, June is half over it’s about time I got up early.
In Totalitarian Stats politicians are treated with respect. No one, absolutely NO ONE asks rude questions of the China's President Xi Jinping or North Korean filth like Kim Il-sung... Nope, it's not ‘brutal’ in civilized countries. Even goons in Mexico and South America don't have to put up with flack from the ‘little people’.
So please Ed Morrissey, Hillary has a point.
In the United States she and her lying husband want the problem of ‘brutal’ politics would STOP. Even Obama would stand with Hillary on this one... Two ‘parties’ wouldn't exist (except for the illusion) and a ‘free press’ wouldn't have to voluntarily act like a State Controlled Press - they really would be a state controlled press...
So again, please understand - Hillay’s saying what she means - and means what she's saying. No ‘accident’ here Ed Morrissey ... Democrats are united in their Chicago/Hot Springs thuggery.
She wouldn’t survive 5 mins of UK question time. Few American pols would. Cruz would shine though.
This, coming from the Clintons who introduced the “War Room” to American politics.
What is it about Democrat voters that makes them love to have their intelligence insulted by their um . . . heroes?
Which leads us back to the topic at hand, Hillary. You can't fix stupid!
Pardon my punctuation. In my last post that should have been a period not a comma. Shirley.
Such touch as she had - which was always exaggerated - is completely gone.
Heavy drinking will do it every time.
Please don’t ever use the words Hillary, hand and period in the same sentence again. Period.
ROTFL I’m going to have to get up early again. Some day.
ISIS could be a little crueler than Hillary’s vision but maybe not, we don’t know for sure.
No one is more brutal or ruthless than the she-devil herself.
Methinks the Norks have us beat.
Why you even have your own t shirts!!!!
When Hillary talks about 'brutal' she means brutal to HER. A question asked without the right amount of deference? A challenge to a well placed lie?
Brutal to HER.
And to her fellow ELITE democrats - by THEIR standards of ELITE entitlement ... what Hillary does to the little people doesn't matter - they're worthless anyhow, right?
War room? She cheerfully destroyed people who dared to disagree with her... and would again. The sneer of cold command sits upon that visage.
This is something we should import IMO. It would take some of the 'imperial' shine off the presidency.
“Hillary still expects a coronation of no accountability, no debt, easy victory, bought and paid for.”
That’s why she gets testy when the questions get tough. This is owed to her in her mind
Too smart to be SOS, she will do much better as POTUS.
Actually, she knows this first hand. Have you ever seen the list of people that died during the Clintons' reign in Arkansas and the White House? She is a major reason that politics in the US is dangerous.
Yes, *Lmao, Hillary has no intention of crawling through broken glass again this time for the nomination, only to lose it to the senate super - delegates who dissed her and cast their electoral vote for Kid Wonder, leaving her campaign in debt— her own pals did that.
These things will not happen again, and be sewn up in advance this time, including no glass crawling and absolutely no debt.
Her behavior tells me that if she should run, that the nomination is somehow guaranteed first, and the general election campaign expenses taken care of. She thinks they owe her that and that they need her to run for any hope of keeping the White House.
I like to think that the t-shirt company has their own me!
The sports teams of my alma mater were nicknamed The Fighting Sioux, a name (and a people) I was always proud to be associated with.
Some years ago the NCAA started hassling them about the name being racist, which of course is absurd as well as much more offensive than the name itself.
About the time I was registering here at FR the NCAA banned the use of the name altogher...they still haven't picked a new one, rather the teama play with plain jerseys....but I figured a good second choice would be the Fightin' Whiteys...so here we are!
But I guess she would admit that she was wealthy compared to the rest of us. Oh wait....
Tell that to the Jan 21 1993 WH TRAVEL OFFICE who all got fired based on HRC Lies.
HRC obviously never studied the Politics in Singapore!
Well she should know about that since it was her and her party and husband who pretty helped make it that way.
Probably even tougher than the acting Tom Cruise endures.
It is brutal. A mayor in California was caught throwing a bag of dog poop on his opponent’s driveway.
