The Politico reporting from the biennial Midwest Republican Leadership Conference, noticed that as unenthused as Republicans are about our own party’s candidates, they seem “confident and even upbeat ” about a Clinton win of the Democratic nomination.
That doesn’t surprise me at all. What I have found surprising is the gloomy mood, I’ve been detecting in Republican circles concerning our prospects for ’08. Why, with her history?
GOP Chair, Craig Dunn got excited when asked if Clinton being the nominee would improve his party’s chances:
“Absolutely, absolutely!” he exclaimed animatedly, grinning widely. “We’ve never elected a president of the United States who started off with 45 percent unfavorable ratings!”
The woman carries a huge amount of baggage with her everywhere she goes, and although much of the voting public have short memories….that’s what 527 groups are for.
In a multimedia presentation to the most diehard of GOP heartland activists, RNC Chair Mike Duncan played and replayed a video of Clinton talking about the economy in a manner he claimed smacked of “socialism.”
when Duncan wrapped up his treatment of the Democratic presidential hopefuls, it was only Clinton that he admonished for being “one of only 22 senators to vote against [Supreme Court Chief Justice] John Roberts” and trying “to block” Samuel Alito’s Supreme Court nomination.
And only she, as Duncan told it, “blasted the Supreme Court decision on partial-birth abortion.”
There’s a wealth of negative information about Hillary in the countless books written about her, starting with, in alphabetical order by author, Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House, by Gary Aldrich to Madame Hillary: The Dark Road to the White House, by R. Emmett Tyrell, and Mark Davis.
Use it use it use it!
People need to hear about every lie, scandal, and dirty trick in embarrassing detail.
Asked which way she was leaning, one local Republican who didn’t want her name used hemmed and hawed before blurting out, “Anybody but Hillary!”
That wasn’t me, but it could have been.
It could have been a whole lotta people.
This is getting good!:
This top Clinton supporter, Norman Hsu, implicated in the fundraising ‘irregularities’ the Wall Street Journal uncovered, turns out to be a “fugitive Swindler”!
“He is a fugitive,” said Ronald Smetana of the California attorney general’s office. “Do you know where he is?”
Love it! Love it! Love it!
