Six Moments That Could Haunt Hillary Or Something

I thought this might actually be a random act of journalism from Annie Karni at Politico, alas, no

6 moments that could haunt Hillary Clinton
A few choice remarks and positions from 2015 could damage Clinton’s prospects next year.

What are they?

1) “We now finally are where we need to be” on ISIL: Defending herself against attacks from her Democratic rivals on the debate stage earlier this month, Clinton gave those eager to paint the “Obama-Clinton foreign policy” as weak on terrorism some catnip. “We now finally are where we need to be,” Clinton said of fighting ISIL. “We have a strategy and a commitment to go after ISIS which is a danger to us as well as the region.”

2) Republicans are my enemies: Clinton often talks about reaching across the aisle in the Senate and working with Republicans after the attacks of September 11. But during the first Democratic debate when asked which “enemy are you most proud of,” she smiled, and added to a litany of foes like the National Rifle Association and drug companies, “probably the Republicans.”

3) “What, like with a cloth or something? (her silly and unserious comment about a very serious issue)

4) Guns (she once pitched herself as a gun and 2nd Amendment supporter, now she wants to placate the base with massive gun control, which won’t help win moderates during a general election)

5) Charter schools (she’s all over the place on this one, but must placate the teacher’s unions)

6) Not My Abuela (look, this one is much ado about nothing)

Hillary is going to be dealing with a lot more than just those remarks if, well, when, she earns the Dem nomination. Not only standing up for Bill’s sexual predatory nature, but going after the victims. The lax security and the subsequent fallout in Benghazi, including blaming it publicly on a video no one had seen. No real accomplishments as either a Senator or Secretary of State. Blowing off the Arab Spring and the Iranian Green Revolution. Calling Assad a “reformer”. Declining relations with friends and foes around the world. The list goes on and on. And, you can bet she is going to answer for it. The leading GOP candidates will not be shy, like McCain and Romney, in going after her record hard.

    Make that 7.

    Don’t forget her Kwanzaa greeting.

    Mitt Romney got excoriated for telling the truth, that the Democratic nominee had 47% of the vote automatically sewn up. For the vast majority of the Democrats. It doesn’t matter what idiocy Mrs Clinton spews or how much of a failure she was in the past: she is Bill Clinton’s wife and she has a vagina, and that’s all that matters.

    The problem is that liberals and women don’t care. They refuse to look at this women and make a critical analysis of her. Just look at the stupidity from Jeff and John, that will tell you how the 47% of non-thinkers thinks.

    The assumption every human with a twat will vote for this twit solely because she has a twat is Lefty FUD.

    The record of her going after women who had a legitimate grievance with her “husband” is not going away.

    And the likely Republican candidate will be Donald Trump. What do you like about him that will garner your vote?

    Like you, I vote for candidates whose policy prescriptions are most consistent with my own. I don’t support deporting 10 million immigrants, banning abortions, building a wall, religious purity tests for immigrants or others, bloating the defense budget, flat or fair tax schemes, cutting Social Security or Medicare or our rigged economy (which all Repubs and many mainstream Dems support). I so support progressive taxation, universal healthcare, public schools, comprehensive immigration reform, global warming remediation efforts, religious freedom, constitutional limits on individual weaponry, and de-rigging the economic system (this will be difficult, but we’re strangling the working classes).

    In general, Republicans believe in pushing resources up the ladder to the wealthy, at the expense of the working classes. This needs to stop.

    Almost certainly I will support the Democratic nominee over any Republican, but it’s based on policy not personality.

    Here’s what Romney said that shocked many Americans and further narrowed his support:

    “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it — that that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. … These are people who pay no income tax. … [M]y job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

    This is pure right-wing mythology, but I’m certain that William and most of his readers agree with the statements, as inaccurate as they are. For example, those over 65 overwhelmingly voted for McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012 but a large proportion of seniors are dependent upon Social Security and Medicare and pay little or no federal taxes.

    Romney didn’t get in trouble for telling the “truth”, he got in trouble for revealing how Republicans think in private.
