Are The Walls Closing In On Hillary’s Strategy

In an interview with a Canadian reporter Hillary refused to answer for the Keystone Pipeline. Her strategy was to broaden the issue. She won’t say if the pipeline should be rejected, although she refused to approve the pipeline during her tenure insisting on ever more studies. She recommends not a “one by one” set of decisions but an “overall” policy that would eventually include Mexico.

She said, in essence, the same thing when questioned by Greta Van Sustern of Fox news related to Bowe Begdahl. She was trying to strike a “bigger deal” with the Taliban that ignored the essential ideology of the parties she intended to negotiate with, such as rejecting al Qaeda and violence. Of course an answer to the specific question was not forthcoming.

The question, in the same interview regarding Benghazi was answered with “the fog of war” and Clinton’s inability to sort through the information flow. The crucial follow up question never came; “When the bodies came home you were still speaking of the video, considering that the “fog” had lifted by then and the participation of Ansar al Sharia was clearly identified by her own people, why still blame the video?” On that issue as well, Hillary sought to broaden the issue but alluding to her perception that the attackers could have been there for variety of reasons; “we can’t say everyone was influenced (by the video), we can’t say no one was influenced.” She insists on a vanilla position in the face of growing evidence that the video had little to do with the variety of attacks in Benghazi, despite the statement she issued at 10:07PM on 9/11/13 referring to the video as she did in subsequent days.

The details and the facts will, in Hillary’s mind, be mitigated by her consistent suggestions that the details and facts are less important than the “bigger deal” or “broader context” she was attempting to put in place. One detail to consider, one fact, is that she never accomplished a big deal. The broader context she attempted to generate never happened.

Hillary’s strategy essentially supports the contention that she did not accomplish anything during her tenure as Secretary of State. She may have tried but as Yoda said; “there is no try, do or not do”. Either she’s not as smart as I thought she was or she’s feeling the walls closing in on questions she simply does not want to or cannot answer. Madam Secretary, it gets harder from here.

    I believe the article below entitled “Is Hillary Imploding?” from the web site “Hot Air’ hits the situation on the head.

    “The American public are wage earners and you could crap on entrepreneurs all day and they wouldn’t flinch.” This goes back to where Mr. Romney stumbled in 2012 about attacking the 47% and displaying how out of touch he was. Mrs. Clinton is running on Bill’s economy NOT PRESIDENT OBAMA’S.

    My hunch along with the article is nothing Mrs. Clinton said recently has reduced her chances at getting the nomination or being elected. ESPECIALLY IF THE GOP/RNC’s idea of attacking her is having a squirrel follow her around.

    If you throw in the fact that Mr. Brat recently won his primary in Virginia on one of the points being “crony capitalism” and the Chamber of Commerce is a major backer of the GOP/RNC it only highlights how out of touch the party is to the public.

  • Bob

    In the article below it describes how not a single Democratic Senator including the two from his home state are publicly urging Vice President Joe Biden to run for President. “Such deep support for a political candidate this early on, is practically unheard of in Presidential politics and reflects the deep hold Clinton has over her party and the sense among Senators that their are no other viable options to keep the presidency in democratic hands.” DEMOCRATS ARE NOSTALGIC FOR CLINTON!

    From the article entitled: “Senate To Joe Biden: We Want Hillary Clinton”

    Very simplistic conclusion, seeking GLORY upon mortally wounded Tea.

    Folks on this site will CAST OUT “crony capitalism” CANDIDATE, a conservative NOT conservative ENOUGH. MAJOR ISSUE I READ ABOUT, like Rand Paul & Ted Cruz, Cantor IS FOR immigration reform. BUT Rand & Ted GET A free pass. At least silence. After all Rand & Ted are closest chance at a Tea President HOPEFUL. ((( FOR this, PRINCIPLE can wallow in the MUD ))).

    This is not GLORY UNTO TEA win for Brat. He was SO FAR BEHIND Tea groups DID NOT SUPPORT with $$$. Many possible reasons for win. Major ones:

    A. Redistricting.

    B. _ Con·niv·ing _ Brat seeking & receiving Democrat support, voting in Republican election to elect weakest, unknown, candidate Brat. POLLS COULD NOT PREDICT THIS scenario. Explains election result.

    2. “Chamber of Commerce is a major backer of the GOP/RNC it only highlights how out of touch the party is to the public.”

    And bob says KEEP TERRORIST IN JAIL. Ignore Court decision, rendered thanks to citizens LIKE BOB who stay home election day. Elected liberal Presidents stuffing Supreme Court with liberal Judges. Bob does, lets say exaggerates, like when he said I jumped J.D. for use of liberal links. NO proof. When I use bob complains, when Nate uses silence:

    “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to device.”

    Walter Scott poem Marmion 1808

    Chamber of Commerce & Karl Rowe TIRED of losing seats THAT should of been one. One close to heart is Todd Akins FROM MY HOME STATE Missouri. A Tea.

    Todd was running against a woman who cling upon buma’s FEET. By all measures Todd was winning. Todd saying raped women don’t conceive, CHANGED THAT.

    Chamber of Commerce & Karl Rowe wanted BETTER SCREENING of candidates. bob is _ ap·palled _. Been tracking those two with his pea shooter ever since & before.

    If Cantor loss shows GOP is “out of touch”, to the “nth degree” MORE SO for Tea. Tea headed to another cryonic, liquid nitrogen dunk. Rand Paul has abandoned his Father’s belief (Rand supports immigration reform), no desire in being a 3 time loser for Presidency, with less than a 1/2 of fingers, bills passed with his singular endorsement…

    “New Poll Shows The Tea Party Is Dying”

    May 9, 2014

    “Gallup has released a new survey showing that a majority of Republicans and Republican leaning independents do not support the Tea Party. The survey shows that over the course of four years the number of Republicans who identify as supporters of the Tea Party has dropped by one-third overall. The survey also shows that 11% of Republicans are actively against the Tea Party.”

    “This shows a continued trend of the GOP distancing themselves from the radical right platform that has become synonymous with neoliberalist interests, complete disregard for the environment, Christian fascism, bigotry towards homosexuals, and atrocious spelling on protest signs. In November 2010, 61% of Republicans were supporters of the Tea Party, an all time high. The number of American adults in 2014 who actively support the Tea Party is now only 22%. In a 2012 Gallup released a poll showing that 22% of Republicans thought that gay marriage should be legal. Let that sink in. There are at least as many Republicans who support gay marriage as adults who support the Tea Party. Probably significantly more given trends on Americans stance toward gay marriage between 2012 and 2014.”

    Goethe Behr June 20, 2014 at 10:38 am
    “Perry is a moron. After an aggressive (offensive) campaign against other states to steal their businesses–especially California–he has announced that he plans to MOVE to California.”

    “How stupid does a guy have to be to tell his own state that he cannot wait to leave–while he’s still in office??? And how insane must he be to think he might then get support from the state he is betraying??”

    You call “gibberish” my pointing out PERRY has NO PLAN of moving as YOUR BUD CLAIMS:

    “Perry’s office noted the governor was asked, if he could live anywhere in the U.S. other than Texas, where would it be.”

    You are a fly IN THE SOUP.

    QUOTE ME fully in context. BE HONEST. You wrote:

    Enjoy the peace of “ignorance”. SIMPLE DON’T read what I write. You qualify as “low informed” and ill informed…

    Stand SHOULDER to shoulder with Goethe Behr inaccurate statement concerning Perry.

    1. “Moron” was word used by Goethe Behr AGAINST Perry. Perry DID NOT SAY HE WOULD MOVE. QUESTION PROSED TO Perry was where would he live if Texas WAS NOT A OPTION.

    2. I just posted on Nate’s other site. Is FIRST AND most likely LAST TIME.

    3. Maybe Goethe Behr will respond if what I wrote was “gibberish?” ACCORDING TO bob.

    4. Accurately isn’t “gibberish?”. Is called BEING FACTUAL. A trait bob is lacking in AS I HAVE PROVEN numerous TIMES.

    5. My comment on other site is awaiting moderation. Being my first comment there. Here is copy:

    PLEASE read your source MORE CLOSELY:

    “… asked where he would live if he could live in any state other than Texas.”

    bob implied I was FEARFUL of confronting you. You can read my comments on Nate’s other site WHERE I will STAY.

    “Could Texas Gov. Rick Perry be mulling move to … California?”

    17 June 2014

    “Asked about the possibility that Perry could be mulling the opposite move, spokesman Travis Considine noted his comment to the magazine came after Perry was asked where he would live if he could live in any state other than Texas.”

    “I would live in California if I could afford it,” Perry said according to a partial transcript of the interview with Leibovich, which Considine provided Tuesday. “Why wouldn’t you want to live out here? Seriously?”

    “Considine added that Perry “posed a rhetorical question, which he has answered many times by noting how California’s high cost-of-living is a contributing factor to why people move away from such a beautiful state.”
