As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Hillary Clinton’s Angry “Sorry, Not Sorry” New Book

Well, CNN got ahold of a copy of Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened, a week before it is supposed to come out from a some dumbass clerk in a Jacksonville, Florida bookstore who sold it before he was supposed to. You learn in journalism, it never hurts to ask. Or who knows, maybe they paid a little “extra” for the privilege. Either way, they got it.

And it’s vintage Clinton, and vintage Washington, where people love to say, “I take full responsibility,” before loading the statement up with caveats that make clear they in fact do not.

According to CNN:

She acknowledges it was bad “optics” to deliver paid speeches to Wall Street banks after the financial meltdown last decade. She says her comment during a CNN town hall about putting coal miners out of business was the misstep “I regret the most.” And, as she has before, Clinton calls her decision to use a private email server during her time at the State Department as “dumb.”

And then, the excuses start coming:

She lambasts media coverage of her emails, singling out The New York Times as a repeat and high-profile offender. And she wonders aloud why, after terms as first lady, US senator, secretary of state and two-time presidential candidate, the public still just doesn’t seem to like her. “What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I’m really asking. I’m at a loss,” she asks her readers, before concluding: “I think it’s partly because I’m a woman.”

Clinton identifies the final week of the campaign, highlighted by Comey’s revival of the email issue, as the moment that led to the bottom dropping out. “Comey’s letter turned that picture upside down,” Clinton writes about her tarnished image, which she said had gone from a picture of a steady leader to one compromised by scandal.

In a lengthy middle section, Clinton unpacks Russia’s meddling in the election, openly wondering whether a more forceful public response from then-President Barack Obama could have changed matters.

And of course, she gives Donald Trump the most backhanded compliment she can think of, saying essentially that he succeeded by dramatically dumbing things down and appealing to anger. She doesn’t even realize that she is insulting average voters, again.

“I was running a traditional presidential campaign with carefully thought-out policies and painstakingly built coalitions, while Trump was running a reality TV show that expertly and relentlessly stoked Americans’ anger and resentment.”

In fact, Trump ran a superior campaign and was more in touch with the desires of average voters than Hillary Clinton was. That’s the main reason she lost. And the simple fact that Trump beat her fair and square is something she can never accept.

  1. Just because I want to be a quarterback in the NFL….. the fact that I can only throw a ball about 30 yards (maybe) the reason I will NEVER be one…

    HRC never will have the personality to president no matter how much resume and connections she has. She cannot get to 270 with the elitist crowd. You have to at least fake sincerity in parts of middle America to get enough to get you over the top.

    Not happening…. Thankfully.

  2. Who in their right mind will pay good money for this drivel? She will never accept her defeat to a non politician. Always someone else’s fault. I heard another one of her hacks still claiming she should be president because she got 3 million more votes. Let it go, you lost. Lost mostly because you are out of touch and sucked as a candidate. Just because the MSM anointed you, didn’t mean middle America cared for you blindly. Go away.

    • She got three million more votes by running up the score in California and winning that state by four million.

      In other words, she lost the rest of the country by a million votes…and even THAT assumes no shenanigans in Chicago or Philadelphia.

      The Electoral College did EXACTLY what it was meant to do.

  3. Nothiing to see here, its all been said before. she is a sore loser plain and simple. Plus she’s a woman and she’ll never
    accept that a man beat her. She’s got so many hang ups that
    who knows who would’ve been running the show if elected.

  4. Maybe only way for her to learn is “lock her up”. Maybe the penny will drop that many of her “dumb” mistake were actually breaking existing laws and norms.

  5. Hillary will never comes to grips with, or have the basic honesty to accept, that after watching her dance through politics for the past 30 years, we know exactly who and what she is, down to the deepest core of her persona. And we said, “Thanks, but no thanks. Go away.”

  6. Book after book appears after every election trying to explain how “we” won, or why “we” lost with differing degrees of hubris or facts.
    Most of the books are told from up on high – the candidate’s opinion or the election worker’s point of view. No one goes to the voter for his/her reasons to vote for or against a candidate.
    It was apparent to many of us what was going on throughout the country during the campaign. We noted the huge crowds to listen to MrTrump – crowds that came from miles away, waited for hours, and once inside the venue were excited and thrilled to hear a candidate utter their feelings or support their views on issues.
    A writer wouldn’t have to leave their home to find out what happened – the archives of many websites are available for perusal. The comments from ordinary citizens on what was happening are easily garnered and easily understood.
    For instance – the “deplorable” insult from MrsClinton was the base for the multitude of internet commenter’s change of their screen-name. The “deplorable” crowd wore their insult proudly- making Clinton’s words another campaign rally.
    She is a woman, yes, but one no one warmed to her, she had no femininity. She appeared to be calculating, always changing her attitude to appease certain groups and never really honest.
    She lost. We’re glad for that.
    MAGA, MrTrump.

  7. “What makes me such a lightning rod for fury?”

    Oh, I don’t know.

    Because you’re a vile, corrupt, power-hungry b*tch?

    I don’t ask for much, but I do hope I live long enough to see this disgusting witch draw her last breath.

  8. The only real question re the Clinton book is: how much money will the Clinton Foundation spend to buy enough books to place it on the NYT Best Seller list. We’ll know in time, one supposes.

  9. 1 Kings 16:29 thru 22:40 Ahab king of Israel 875-854 BC Reigned 22 years. Wickedest of all the kings of Israel. He married Jezebel, a Sidonian princess, an imperious, unscrupulous, vindictive, determined, devilish woman, a demon incarnate. ” I thought of Hillary Clinton when I read this.” Jezebel was a real piece of work! So is der Hillary.
