I didn’t bother to watch Hillary’s second (or is it third) campaign launch in New York City, Saturday, but I heard it was a major snooze-fest.
Clinton’s speechwriter apparently thought it would be helpful if he had his elderly boss – a longtime fixture in the party of bad ideas that don’t work – attack Republicans as the party of “Yesterday.”
Via the Hill:
“There may be some new voices in the Republican choir,” she said of the GOP’s 2016 field. “But they’re all singing the same old song – A song called ‘Yesterday.’ ”“You know the one – ‘All our troubles are here to stay, and we need a place to hide away,’ ” Hillary Clinton quipped. “They believe in yesterday.”
What a dumb line of attack. It rings false because it is false. It’s the sort of thing vacuous simps applaud because they want to think of themselves as members the cool and happening “party of today.” Even though they support the failed party of Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, Philly etc.
Really Marco Rubio doesn’t even have to even open his mouth to refute that nonsense. All has to do is stand there next to a cardboard cutout of Grandma Clinton and let the American people decide who looks like “yesterday’s” candidate. But the funny thing is – he already refuted it explicitly in his presidential announcement, last April.
This is much gentler than Carly Fiorina’s ferocious broadsides. But he gets his point across.
