Who had the worst week in Washington? Hillary Clinton (she must be close to setting a record)
Washington Post ^ | July 3, 2014 | Chris Cillizza

Posted on 07/05/2014 3:10:10 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

When “Hard Choices,” Hillary Rodham Clinton’s memoir of her time at the State Department, came out in early June, the book — and subsequent book tour — were touted as the first steps in the inevitable 2016 presidential bid by the nation’s former top diplomat. If that’s what they are, Clinton may be in for some tough times.

The past few days tell the story. Even as Clinton was prepping for the European leg of her book tour, she was dogged by two recurring and not-so-good headlines.

I see no end in sight for Hillary winning "worst week" honors.

In London she showed her stupidity when she didn't know that Tories and conservatives were not political opposites.

Clinton gaffe: Former secretary of State confuses Britain's political parties ".......Asked by the host what she thought of the "Special Relationship" between the U.S. and Great Britain, Clinton declared it was "very special between our countries."

"There's not just a common language, but a common set of values that we can fall back on," she said. "It doesn't matter in our country whether it's a Republican or a Democrat or frankly, in your country, whether it's a Conservative or a Tory. There is a level of trust and understanding. That doesn't mean we always agree because, of course, we don't."...............

So, the Flying Buttress jets off to Europe leaving her troubles behind, only to create some new ones.

Our next President.......?

When Hillary keeps a low profile, her poll numbers rise. When Hillary raises her profile, her poll numbers fall.

A bad week for Hillary is a good week for the rest of us.

Though I would like to see her do a little more damage to the Democratic Party before she waddles from the stage.

She represents every blue-nose abolitionist, crabby nagging wife, loudmouth ignorant Yankee, man-hating lesbian you have ever encountered. She is dull and stupid and cannot think on her feet. Her handlers are old and obsolete. The blacks will not vote for her. She will not get the nomination - her health will break down.

My question is: Will America elect a pathological liar to replace a pathological narcissist in the next election?

Remember her Listenng Tour when she ran for NY Senator in 2002?

She went from town to town, and sat in a chair while people took turns at a microphone saying what was on their mind. The result was a parade of suspiciously similar people at town after town saying how excited they were that Hillary was going to be their next Senator.

By September, she was at 70% Then, with six weeks to go, she started to talk....

Every time she opened her mouth, her polls fell. She dropped a point every other day, and by Election Day, she barely managed to beat a non-entity from Long Island.

At least her money story is still going strong. She keeps it alive by denying it repeatedly.

Another annoying part of that was her incessant Bobble-head 'head-bob'... up and down, up and down, up and down.

A lame effort to look interested and concerned, but I suspect it was really to try and keep from nodding off.

I agree I don’t see the same turn out of black voters for H. Clinton compared to Obama. The turn out of NAGS may be higher but not by much.

It really doesn’t matter how bad she is now. The MSM has chosen her.

What Hillary needs, after her trial and conviction for murder and treason, is a short drop and quick stop. That will be a good day for America.

You have contempt for abolitionists? What do you mean? The only abolitionists I ever heard of were the people against slavery.

Are you talking about some other type of abolitionist? Or are you against the people who wanted to end slavery?

If so, you are at the wrong website.

You were right about the rest of your description, though.

You got that right! Just like the spring-loaded figures in the back windows of Asians cars!

“When Hillary keeps a low profile, her poll numbers rise. When Hillary raises her profile, her poll numbers fall.”

We have a winner. When she is shielded by her handlers and the media, doesn’t have to deal with anything not scripted, her numbers go up. When she is portrayed as a victim, her numbers go up. Look for all that to happen if she runs. The victim card will be the primary one used.

Whether the old, stumbling drunk, Hillary Clinton goes to the dustbin of obscurity or ash-heap of history, I do not care. What difference does it make?

There are two kinds of people in America — those who, when they hear the word ‘’Tory,’’ think of the actress Tori Spelling, and those who, when they hear the same word, think of the Conservative Party of Britain.

Anyone who is not part of the second group should not be the president of anything more important than the Justin Beiber Fan Club. So Hillary, whose gaffe in Britain demonstrated that she is clearly not in the second group, should no longer be considered presidential material by any educated person. That should include members of the media, some of whom, even ardent liberals, are already voicing their disapproval of The Inevitable One.

The way things are going for Hillary, her next book, to be called ‘’Easy Choices,’’ will describe her decision not to run for president due to her collapsing poll numbers.

Exactly.

If Sarah Palin had confused political parties in Great Britain there would have been no let up - NONE.

Hillary, Al, Bill, Barack, Kerry - they’re just flat out geniuses and that’s that.

Next.

"a Conservative or a Tory"?

Someone should ask the lifelong Yankees fan which is the better team, the Yankees or the Bronx Bombers.

I'm no supporter of Hillary (or any Leftist), but I must ask what's wrong with being an abolitionist?

And she's not an abolitionist by any means anyway but why'd you use that term?
