Today’s scandal du jour, (which comes right on the heels on former Defense Sec Robert Gates’ devastating book indicting the Obama Regime[!]) is “BridgeGate”, which Ace thinks may well sink Chris Christie’s chances in 2016 – (and if he had any part of that – it should.) We’ve had quite enough of nasty politicians “targeting their political enemies” for one decade. Whomever the Republican nominee is – has to be squeaky clean, anyway. If Christie isn’t squeaky clean – he shouldn’t waste our time. It’s not like the media is going to give a Republican any kind pass if they smell blood in the water.
As for the presumptive Democrat – well, obviously, Christie has nothing on her. But the MSM sharks won’t be circling the water around her Magesty. I don’t have to tell you the Democrat media complex will be much more willing to look the other way when it comes to the Queen Bee. There will have to be mass quantities – a virtual avalanche of dirt, so to speak – on her….
And it just so happens that in an appearance on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer, RNC chairman Reince Priebus predicted just that: “an avalanche of information on Hillary Clinton” will be spilled out as she runs for president in 2016. He added, “she wanders and scandal surrounds her.”
The chairman was responding to the revelation in former Defense Secretary Robert Gates new book that Clinton, as secretary of state, told President Obama that her opposition to the 2007 surge in Iraq was political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary.
“I think there will be an avalanche of information on Hillary Clinton and the things she has done over the years,” Priebus predicted, “dating back to the governorship in Arkansas and her role and many of the things that happened back then to her poor rollout of health care to her affiliation with Barack Obama, to her gross negligence in Benghazi, political decisions on the war.”
“This is a very political person who makes decisions based on how the wind blows,” he said, “and this is just the tip of the iceberg.”
Asked if he thinks she will be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, Priebus said he wasn’t sure. “But with all of the scandal around her, I’m not sure so it would be all that bad for the Republican Party, to tell you the truth,” he said.
Corrected: It’s Christie, not Christy. I knew that.
