Hillary Clinton helped create the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. Then, for political purposes, she came out against it this week.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today suggested it’s all just part of the game.
“As the winner of the last two presidential elections that have been held in this country, the president understands that presidential politics are tough, and he understands that it is the responsibility of presidential candidates to distinguish themselves,” Earnest said. “In some case that means, distinguishing themlseves from the current occupant of the office.”
Yes, she I suppose now you could call her very distinguished.
Earnest prefaced this statement by saying he would be candid. I guess he was.
In one of the most naked, shameless political moves I’ve seen in some time, Hillary Clinton came out Thursday against President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal she helped negotiate and promote.
Here’s how she sounded just three years, ago, before she was running for president.
The opportunism is so obvious, even NBC can see it.
Here’s the new down-to-earth Hillary. See the emotion. See the sincerity. See the . . . dancing? Oh boy.
She really is supposed to be very natural in person and charming with her friends. But translating that into a public persona just has never come easy to her.
She watched Bill do it for years. And when she first started out in politics running for the Senate in New York 15 years ago, she was surprised how difficult it was, saying of Bill, “He just made it look so easy.”
And she’s never really figured out how to be herself in public.
Hillary Clinton Friday invoked imagery of the Holocaust to describe the things she says Republicans want to do to illegal immigrants, including moves to “pull people out of their homes” . . . “round them up” and put them in “boxcars” in order to deport them to Mexico.
These are obvious references to the German roundups of Jews in the late 1930s and early 1940s.
Desperate to change the subject from her email scandal and reverse her falling poll numbers, Mrs. Clinton is hiding out on the low road. Thursday she said Republicans were like “terrorists.”
She knows exactly what she’s doing. This is a whatever it takes to win mentality, devoid of scruple or any sense of decorum or morality. Look out Bernie Sanders, and should you get in, Joe Biden. The ugly Clinton destruction machine will rip you apart too.
Oh, and she should apologize to Jews immediately for using the Holocaust for political purposes.
Here’s what she said:
There are some on the other side who are seriously advocating to deport 11, 12 million people who are working here
I find it the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive law enforcement effort – including, perhaps, national guard and others – to go and literally go pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them – I don’t know, in buses? boxcars? . . . in order to take them across the border.
Beneath her? Beneath her??? This is standard Clinton fare. Thursday, Hillary Clinton compared Republican candidates’ position on abortion to those of “terrorists.” Since the Aliyskyites took control of the White House, this kind of vitriol has become standard fare. What’s more, this is a woman who has lied and misled repeatedly about her handling of… Continue Reading
During a campaign appearance in Cleveland, Ohio, Hillary Clinton ran down a list of positions by Republican presidential candidates on abortion, saying their approach to women was comparable to that of terrorists. I take it a little personally when they go after women. When they go after women’s health, women’s rights. … Programs and services… Continue Reading
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Monday sounded all warm and fuzzy about a run by Vice President Biden for president, saying there is “no one in American politics today who has a better understanding of exactly what is required to mount a successful national presidential campaign.” Aides to Hillary Clinton, one of the “no ones” being… Continue Reading
Hillary Clinton’s communications director Jennifer Palmieri seemed a little worn down Wednesday trying to explain the inexplicable – that is, the Hillary Clinton email scandal. You know, for instance, emails that were not where they were supposed to be and then were ERASED. Even Richard Nixon didn’t erase. Well, he did a little, but not… Continue Reading
