Democrats ought to be terrified–Hillary may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency of the USA–Trump, 6/22/16—-58.47h., b58.43
A chill wind is blowing through the left. after weeks of reassuring each other “Hillary’s got this in the bag,” clouds of doubt are beginning to appear: What if the truth starts getting out there? What if Hillary’s monstrous history of corruption and global destruction is exposed?
The Hillary forces have no ready answer — because they’ve never had to answer. And then there’s this admission: “Some of the examples Trump chose to reinforce this caricature are true … it was terrifying to watch him succeed.
We remember the 1990s, the Clinton era. I, along with many of you, recall the bonfire of lies, the bribes, the daily scandals with Hillary at the center — Whitewater, Travelgate, Troopergate, FBI files-gate. Rose Law Firm records-gate, bimbo-eruptions, white house coffee-gate, , Chinagate. pardongate, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg-gate.
So the simple listing of the hellish Clinton record is shocking to a huge chunk of the voting public. Put it in “context, against a backdrop of lifelong villainy, and it will stick.
There is a definite disconnect between Hilary and the Millennials — as seen with Bernie Sanders voters, according to a 6/22 Bloomberg report. Their latest poll found that “barely half of those who favored Sanders — 55 percent — plan to vote for Clinton. Instead, 22 percent say they’ll vote for Trump, while 18 percent favor Libertarian Gary Johnson.”
“I am now turning my attention from that side of the aisle to the Republican side … I’ve done 120 campaigns all over this country, and I think that Hillary Clinton’s track record of lies, deceit, and fraud — her 30 years of scandals, from Benghazi to the email scandal — it just means that she’s an untenable candidate in my opinion.
They know that Trump’s direct attacks have the potential to do great damage. Because they’re true. Democrats know that Hillary Clinton is outclassed as a candidate. She has no star power. The contrast is stark — Hillary the dull nothingburger while all the light shines on the Trumpster.
There’s something else that’s affecting this election, something intangible but fundamental. Lately I’ve been describing liberalism as successfully sold pessimism. You can see that in the Democrats’ concept of America. Obama, for instance, doesn’t even think in terms of American exceptionalism. “I believe in American exceptionalism,” he once said, “just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” There s nothing special about us.
