As we mentioned yesterday, Democrats are trying hard to sound like Republicans as they realize their liberal progressive policies are failing America. Their once-adored golden child, Barack Hussein Obama, has turned into kryptonite.
So is it any surprise that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be doing her best to separate herself from The Toxic One? You may have heard about Ms. Clinton’s scathing comments of the Obama foreign policy in Iraq and Syria in a recent interview with The Atlantic. Are any of you buying it? Maybe you’re not, but naturally the media is.
According to Breitbart, ” Clinton–the most senior foreign policy official in the United States, aside from President Barack Obama himself, for four years–is now attempting to differentiate herself from her old boss, now that his hapless leadership has become a liability to her presidential ambitions. And the media are buying it, then re-selling it to the public as if it represents an authentic split instead of opportunism and lies.”
It amazes me that Ms. Clinton would believe anyone wouldn’t see through her weak efforts as anything other than politics. You must ponder, why did she go along with all these foreign policy decisions when she was part of the administration? You all remember that love fest interview with Obama and Clinton on 60 Minutes by Steve Croft as she was exiting — so what happened?
What happened is that Ms. Clinton doesn’t want to answer for any of the failures — of which she was a part! And sadly, the fawning liberal media will do everything it can to throw her a lifeline. The problem is, the whacked-out far Left progressive socialists who still drink five times daily doses of Obama kool-aid are in total agreement and blind allegiance – and if you don’t believe me, just read the icrazy comments they’ll leave below. Even the George Soros backed Moveon.org, unleashed a tough letter condemning Ms. Clinton for her comments against “da one.” Hillary needs to remember the Democrat base isn’t moderate, it’s hardcore leftist. And attacking Obama in order to create a separation will only drive the base further into the Senator Elizabeth Warren camp (oh gee, can you imagine her sitting down with Vladimir Putin, Hasan Rouhani, and Xi Jinping?)
Clinton’s attempt to come off hawkish has backfired in the back channels of liberal progressive socialist political hideaways.
As The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg writes: “This is what Clinton said about Obama’s slogan: ‘Great nations need organizing principles, and “Don’t do stupid stuff” is not an organizing principle.'” It now becomes permissible for liberals to say what conservatives have been saying for years–i.e. that the emperor has no clothes. That is good, perhaps, for liberating our democratic discourse, but it is a cheap shot that should not let her off the hook.”
“Hillary did nothing–nothing–to argue against Obama’s foreign policy in any way that mattered. In fact, she was frequently the willing public face of his worst policies, whether the Russian “reset” in 2009 or the public rebuke of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 2010 or the Libyan misadventure in 2011 (“We came, we saw, he died!”) or, most of all, the Benghazi debacle of 2012, in which she eagerly led the effort to deceive the public.”
As Breitbart describes it, “Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department is one long litany of “stupid stuff.” It is also far from clear what her own “organizing principle” in foreign policy is, short of doing whatever is necessary to preserve her own ambitions.”
Unfortunately, this is the nature of politics in America: unprincipled individuals who will say or do anything for the vote. It’s not about promoting America or Americans, it’s all about themselves, self-serving rascals that they are. Sadly, no matter how hard she tries to escape, Hillary is part owner of the Obama foreign policy debacle that is playing out daily across the globe – along with it our nation’s loss of respect, regard, influence and prestige.
But it may well be political suicide to attack Obama and attempt to distance herself from the decisions she supported.
Looks more and more like she is done, goose is cooked, and Elizabeth Warren will be the next progressive socialist darling to carry on the failing Obama legacy. Sorry Hillary, but then again you can always do speaking engagements for six figures since you and Bill are just so impoverished.
