Fallout: Benghazi & Iraq


Is anyone else wondering why such a seasoned political veteran would make this novice a mistake?

Of course, what I'm really wondering is why the Republicans are so impotent at (deserved) character assassination? How is it possible that Hillary is still considered the "2016 Democratic frontrunner" after everything that has transpired over the past few years?!

And, I agree with CBFTW's sentiment...Is there really anything to say about Iraq?

I remember Mosul, but Iraq 3.0 is what happens when you exit a war early

To my knowledge, my Dad, also a Vietnam Veteran, never denied losing the Vietnam War...he always said the government never had the stomach nor the desire to win it...

Well ALa, Both the dems and the repubs are bankrupt when it comes to establishment candidates. Look what parties did the last two election cycles. No sane person wants to put up with the shit that goes on in politics. So we just get the asswipes running for office.
Frankly, we deserve what we are getting.
If there is any hope, it lies in the Tea Party or some third party. We have never had so much corruption and lawlessness in the Executive branch. The media which used to be the organ to bring down the 'High, mighty and corrupt' are now as corrupt as the politicians they cover.

Yeah, who woulda thought someone so seasoned would be real and tell the truth about what she was thinking?

One man's rich is another man's poor. Maybe that's how rich Demo's can sleep at night ....

Much of the problem is that the Republicans can’t bring themselves to drop facts and logic within a framework of civil debate. Since this is what persuades most of THEM, they can’t get it through their noggin that much (perhaps most) of the electorate is motivated by emotion, primarily envy, jealousy and victimhood. Just look at the arguments that Nit, Reliably Blathers Bilge and Malarkey come up with to confirm this.
The rest of the problem is the biased media. We have to find a way to circumvent it. If there is a way, simply telling the truth about the Democrats would expose them for what they are. I don’t consider telling the TRUTH about Jug Ears or the Clintons to be character assassination.

She's considered the front runner because they don't have anyone else (and we all know the front runner gets sacrificed).

She really isn't a very good campaigner. In the only real competitive campaign she's ever been in, she got beat bad by a clueless freshman Senator from Chicago.

I really don't know why people thinks she's smart.

CrabbyOldMan said...

Stupid people think that she is smart.

I've said all along she's a terrible candidate, she was last time too.

She's going to go down in flames, I hope they run her its a gift if they do.

CrabbyOldMan said...

I wouldn't be so sure. You think she stinks. I think she stinks. What about the half the electorate that voted for Jug Ears?

Foxy Wizard said...

I have a very good friend who is a Liberal. She is happy with Obama, and can't wait to work for Hillary's election.

Those people will never turn.

Then there are those like my nephew, who fell for the hopychangythingy and voted for O!. He now despises him and has turned into a Conservative. Those are the people who will tilt the seesaw in our direction-if we still have a country.

She's a horrible human being - nakedly, brazenly horrible. She is not smart. She's actually pretty stupid. But she shocks people with her horribleness and takes advantage when they can't regroup in time. She thinks it's okay to do this because she is a woman.

I do hope she runs. Obama is a smooth, detached, incompetent. She is a grating, overly involved, incompetent. I don't think this is a winning combination.

Obama was a great candidate, one of the best ever. Horrible President but great at the job of running for President.

Hillary "I ain't no ways tired" Clinton sucks.

Run her Dems, run that stupid bitch.
