Now that the lauding of Democrat Candidate Hillary Clinton’s becoming the first EVAH Female United States of America Presidential Candidate has subsided, the reality of the problems that she faces in the General Election is starting to sink in among her supporters in the Main Stream Media.
According to the Washington Post,
One of the things that has worried some Democrats is the question of how a by-the-book candidate like Clinton would deal with someone as wildly unconventional as Trump.
When violence broke out ahead of a Trump rally in Chicago in March, forcing him to cancel, he took to television to encourage his fans to blame Sanders’s supporters.
Clinton remained silent for hours, and her initial response was tepid. It was not until the next day that she accused Trump of setting the tone that encouraged the melee. “If you play with matches, you’re going to start a fire you can’t control,” she said in St. Louis.
But she found her footing more quickly the night of the Pennsylvania primary.
Trump, with the GOP nomination in hand, had been vowing to recalibrate his style and become more presidential. His chief strategist, Paul Manafort, had assured members of the Republican National Committee in a closed-door briefing that the real estate mogul had merely been playing a part in the primary, that Trump would begin “evolving into the part that you’ve been expecting. The negatives will come down, the image is going to change.”
That was exactly what Clinton and her team expected as well — and it worried them. But so far, those fears haven’t been realized.
In the car on the way to the airport in Philadelphia,
they heard of Trump’s latest fusillade.“Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card,” Trump said. “And the beautiful thing is, women don’t like her. Look how well I did with women tonight.”
On the short flight to Teterboro, N.J., they deliberated what to do. Should she express outrage? Should she dispute the fairness of what he had said?
As it happened, the campaign’s digital staff had already prepared a video of one of Clinton’s often-used lines, which she had repeated that night: “If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.”
“That,” communications director Jennifer Palmieri told the others on the plane, “is our only response.”
In retrospect, Palmieri said, “that was the night he became the Republican nominee. It was important to freeze that moment in time.” The next two days saw the biggest online fundraising of the entire campaign.
In San Diego last week, Clinton eviscerated Trump in a speech billed as a foreign policy address. Her technique was to use Trump’s own words to make the case against him.
Her allies cheered.
“It put a lot of Democratic bed-wetting on pause,” said one campaign official. “Now they can visualize how we will take the fight to him.”
Campaign officials said they are already planning a similar speech focused on the economy.
But they also insist that they cannot count on the Republican nominee to be his own undoing.
“We can’t go into it thinking our opponent will excite our base. We have to give people a reason to vote for us, too,” Marshall said. “We have an opportunity to go out there and earn it.”
Clinton has already made history by locking up the nomination. And she has shown that she can learn from her own mistakes. Now comes the biggest chance of all, and this time, there will be no margin for error.
The Clinton Campaign has bigger problems than the Washington Post and the rest of the Democrats care to admit.
She is untrustworthy.
Fifty-seven percent of the American people do not believe Hillary Clinton is trustworthy according to an ABC-Washington Post poll conducted in March. The fog of Clinton scandals has eroded public trust in the former Secretary of State and it is the latest one which I find the most appalling. The State Department Office of Inspector General (OIG) provided another reminder of Secretary Clinton’s lack of honesty last week by issuing a scathing report detailing her illegal use of a private email server to conduct official government business. Even the liberal Huffington Post was prompted to run a piece titled “State Department Report Justifies Indictments for Hillary Clinton. Democrats Need Bernie Sanders.”
Then there’s the matter of the millennials and other wannabe-socialists who “Felt The Bern”.
The are feeling another kind of “burn”, now. Per politico.com,
One out of every four Bernie Sanders supporters said they will not support Hillary Clinton in the general election if she is the Democratic Party’s standard bearer, according to the results of a McClatchy-Marist poll out Wednesday.
While 25 percent of Sanders backers said they would not support Clinton in November, 69 percent said they would vote for the former secretary of state.
Among Clinton supporters, just 14 percent said they would steer clear of voting for Sanders should he become the party’s nominee, with 79 percent saying they would get behind the Vermont senator.
Overall, the national survey released on the heels of Sanders’ resounding victory in Wisconsin found him leading Clinton 49 percent to 47 percent nationally, with Sanders holding wide advantages among those younger than 30, Latinos, political independents, unmarried people and those identifying as liberals. Clinton, meanwhile, leads by significant margins among those 60 and older, among African Americans, married people and those identifying as Democrats.
Marist conducted the survey from March 29-31, surveying 1,066 registered voters, including 497 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents. For that subsample, the margin of error is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
After all the shenanigans, involving the Super Delegates and other assorted political chicanery designed by the Democrats to secure the victory for Hillary, Bernie supporters have every right to be angry and disillusioned.
The Democrat Elite want to hold onto the Washingtonian Status Quo just as much as the Vichy Republicans do.
The final problem that Hillary faces, as the Washington Post noted, is Donald J. Trump, himself.
Trump does not play by “the rules” of Washington Politics.
He fights back, as he stated during his victory speech last night after wrapping up the Republican Primaries.
Now, I know some people say I’m too much of a fighter. My preference is always peace, however. And I’ve shown that. I’ve shown that for a long time. I’ve built an extraordinary business on relationships and deals that benefit all parties involved. Always. My goal is always, again, to bring people together. But if I’m forced to fight for something I really care about, I will never, ever back down. And our country will never, ever back down.
I’ve fought for my family, I’ve fought for more business, I’ve fought for my employees. And now, I’m going to fight for you, the American people. Like nobody has ever fought before. And I’m not a politician fighting, I’m me. You’re going to see some real good things happen. Just remember this, I’m going to be your champion.
I’m going to be America’s champion. Because you see, this election isn’t about Republican or Democrat, it’s about who runs this country. The special interests or the people, and I mean, American people. Every election year, politicians promise change. Obama promised change and it didn’t work out too well. And every year, they fail to deliver.
Why would politicians want to change a system that’s totally rigged in order to keep them in power? That’s what they’re doing, folks. Why would politicians want to change a system that’s made them and their friends very, very wealthy? I beat a rigged system, by winning with overwhelming support. The only way you could have done it. Landslides all over the country, with every demographic on track to win 37 primary caucus victories in a field that began with 17 very talented people.
After years of disappointment, there’s one thing we all have learned. We can’t fix the rigged system by relying on — and I mean this so, so strongly — the very people who rigged it. And they rigged it. And do not ever think anything differently. We can’t solve our problems by counting on the politicians who created our problems.
The Clintons have turned the politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves. They’ve made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access, selling favors, selling government contracts, and I mean hundreds of millions of dollars.
Secretary Clinton even did all of the work on a totally illegal private server. Something that how she’s getting away with nobody understands. Designed to keep her corrupt dealings out of the public record, putting the security of the entire country at risk, and a president in a corrupt system is totally protecting her. Not right.
I am going to give a major speech on probably Monday of next week and we’re going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons. I think you’re going to find it very informative and very, very interesting. I wonder if the press will want to attend. Who knows.
Hillary Clinton turned the State Department into her private hedge fund. The Russians, the Saudis, the Chinese, all gave money to bill and Hillary and got favorable treatment in return. It’s a sad day in America when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country than our great citizens.
I didn’t need to do this. It’s not easy, believe me. I didn’t need to do it, but I felt I had to give back to our wonderful country, which has been so good to me and to my family.
I’ve traveled to many of our states and seen the suffering in people’s eyes. I’ve visited communities in new York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Indiana, and Ohio, whose manufacturing jobs, literally, these jobs have virtually disappeared. An embarrassment to our country and it’s horrible.
I’ve embraced the victims of illegal immigration, moms and dads who have had to bury their own children, because of people who shouldn’t have been in the country. Remember it, folks. Remember it. I’ve visited the crumbling cities and the struggling schools. I’ve seen our dilapidated airports, highways, bridges, and I’ve compared them to other countries where we see facilities so far superior to ours. It’s really not to be believed.
Hard to imagine what’s happened to our country. America is being taken apart piece by piece, auctioned off and just rapidly, auctioned off to the highest bidder. We’re broke. We’re broke. We are $19 trillion, going quickly to $21 trillion. Our infrastructure is a disaster. Our schools are failing. Crime is rising. People are scared. The last thing we need is Hillary Clinton in the White House or an extension of the Obama disaster.
One of the secrets to Donald Trump’s Political Success, is, in fact, his masterful manipulation of the scavenging vultures that comprise the Main Stream Media.
Trump has played the media like Charlie Daniels plays the fiddle, with outstanding expertise and unerring accuracy.
Additionally, the ability to speak truth to power, to relate to average Americans, and to communicate in a fashion that gets his message across to the American Public, is exactly the reason that Trump continues to be steadily gaining popularity among the American Public.
Trump’s willingness to strike back at the Clinton Campaign and the Main Stream Media, when they malign him and publish false stories about him, has tapped into the American Public’s feelings about both the MSM and the Washingtonian Status Quo.
Americans are viewing Trump as someone who is not afraid to fight, for himself or for Americans.
One thing is for sure: unlike Crooked Hillary, Trump is not in it for the money.
So far, every hit piece in the Media, or things that his political opponents, including Hillary, has backfired in spectacular fashion.
Regarding his upcoming battle in the General Election with the “Queen of Mean” herself, Hillary Clinton…
Unfortunately for both the Democrats and the “Eeyores” and “Prophets of Doom” in the “#NeverTrump” Crowd, as Rush alluded to, the American people have her figured out, as her long and bloody Political History is there for everyone to see.
Lying comes as naturally to The Former First Lady as breathing in and out.
As I have written, from the time she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee to wiping her private e-mail server, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.
Machiavellian in political ambition and armed with a vocabulary that would make the legendary Gong Show Judge, Jaye P. Morgan, blush (look her up, kids), “the Hildebeast” has cut a wide swatch in her path to Political Power.
It should be obvious to Americans by now, that she believes that morality and ethics are for “the little people” (i.e., you and me).
We already have a congenital liar in the White House.
We certainly do not need another one.
So, my Prediction for the upcoming Presidential Campaign, leading up to the election of Donald J. Trump, as the 45th President of the United States of America?
Grab your popcorn, boys and girls, this is gonna be fun.
Oh…and Ambassador Christopher Stevens remains unavailable for comment.
