GOP Bashes Hillary

On MSNBC this morning, they had on a republican spokesperson, Barbara Comstock, who bashed Hillary as a "drama queen," saying "it's always about them," and finally, "they're not going to stop [complaining]."

What made this hilarious is the spokesperson was on using Hillary supporters attack the Democratic ticket.  

On one hand the spokesperson argued that Hillary should of been the VEEP and therefore some of her supporters should vote for McSame, but on the other hand, Hillary is too temperamental and selfish to lead the country.

The point is, how do you reach out to Hillary's voters with one hand, while rhetorically slapping Hillary and Bill with the other.

Also how do you vote for McSame when his surrogates are beating on Hill and Bill.

In one swooooooop, the GOP managed to attack both Obama and Hillary.

There you go. Vote McSame.

They hypocricy is always staggering

Like quoting Biden about Obama's unpreparedness for the presidency... when, if that's what people are concerned about, then the fact that Biden is on the ticket to provide experience should put their minds at ease.

All of these recent Republican attacks, it's like a different person came up with each one; they only make sense individually if you turn it to the side and squint; together they betray no common plan other than to just smear as much as possible, as long as possible.

Re: GOP Bashes Hillary

What I find as funny is, do the people that are advocating voting for McCain here have any idea HOW much the Republics would be sliming the Clintons should Hillary have been the nominee, EITHER President OR VP?

How much cognative dissonance can your brain take, for you to work with the party that went on an 8 year Jihad against the Clintons.

As much as it is not helping your self interest in not helping elect a democratic ticket, telling me you're staying home and not voting for either party at least has some rationale I can see.

Voting for McCain, to punish the Democratic party or the media for Sexism, as I literally have seen people claim is their motivation, is downright loony.

Or impeachment or chelsea

vote for McSame - he voted to impeach clinton on ALL counts.

or

vote for McSame - he thinks Chelsea is ugly and says Hillary and Janet Reno were lovers.

that'll teach David Schuster a lesson!!!

Re: Or impeachment or chelsea

You got it--as long as Obama loses and Cafferty, Shuster, and that piece of dogshit Matthews are in tears on election night.  Then Matthews can complain about Hillary's habit of clapping her hands as she enters a room.

cut your nose to spite your face

it's true.  

If Barack wins, Hill and run again, if she wants (Biden won't run in 8 years, at age 74).  

If Barack loses, Tweety, aided by GOP operatives like Comstock, will stoke anti-Hillary fires, even if undeserved.

they don't like Cafferty either?

I know they hate Schuster and Tweety, and for good reason.

But what did Jack do?

Re: they don't like Cafferty either?

Jack Cafferty on January 4th 2008 on the day after the Iowa caucuses, the Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, "Barack Obama's victory speech last night was unbelievably brilliant...finally we have someone who can help us take our country back." Now if after hearing that if anyone doubts the MSM was in the process of licking Obama's ass at the expense of Hillary Clinton, then you are delusional.  An actual journalist would have been fired for ENDORSING a candidate.  This was not an opinion expressed by Mr. Cafferty-it was a clarion call for America to support Obama.

that wasn't sexist

Cafferty is an opinion writer. that's his gig.  He's not a reporter.  He does opinion pieces - like Andy Rooney.  

there wasn't anything in that statement that was patently offensive.  I didn't begrudge Dan Abrams for supporting Hillary.  

by Al Rodgers 2008-08-25 09:19AM | 0 recs
Re: that wasn't sexist

Abrams did NOT support Hillary Clinton at least not publically.  Abrams did not read from a prepared text a speech which was tatamount to an endorsement.  What Cafferty did was beyond the pale and the fact that he was allowed to get away with it is proof positive of what Joan Walsh said on Howard Kurtz's show, "The press hates the Clintons" or what Dana Milbank said on the same show, "The press had the long knives out for Clinton in Iowa and couldn't wait til she lost." How can a Clinton voter support the candidate (Obama) who benefitted from this incredible press bias?  To vote for him would be to essentially give approval of their actions.  If you want to know what the PUMAS are all about-it's quotes like these from the media.

How does that help Hillary?

If Hillary runs again for president, then the hillary hating media will use these statements against her.   These statements ultimately hurt Hillary.

Re: GOP Bashes Hillary

You like that expression cognative dissonance, don't you? We are not voting for saint Barack because of issues.  Issues have nothing to do with it. I agree with Saint Barck on theb issues.  I'm not voting for him out of proteat to the way the Obama loving press treated Hillary--and it's worth having the country go down the tubes just to see Jack Cafferty in tears on election night.

Re: I'm sorry

You don't believe what--that I'm a supporter of HRC?  Well I don't know what to tell you short of giving you my real name so you can check my voter registration and contributions I have made to the Clintons over the years.  But since I'm not crazy enough to do that-you'll have to accept my word that I have never voted Republican in my life and am not a "troll" posing as a Clinton supporter.  Hillary is just going through the motions to make it look good for herself after Obama loses.  Then she won't get the blame and in a year or so will start campaigning.

In the long run you would only hurt Hillary

if obama were to somehow lose, then the people you hate, like tweety, will point to statements like yours.  They'll pull it up and put in the screen.

If Hillary were to run again, she can have that.

by Al Rodgers 2008-08-25 09:25AM | 0 recs
Re: In the long run you would only hurt Hillary

Absolutely - Those sorts of statements undermine Hillary a great deal.

This was really well put by a Clinton delegate, as reported by Ambinder:

The issues that Hillary Clinton has worked so tirelessly for--expanded access to healthcare, a woman's right to choose, the restoration of America's standing in the world--have been just as tirelessly opposed by John McCain and the GOP.  If you refuse to support Obama in November you are standing in opposition to Hillary and thwarting her lifetime of hard work.

What's more, you will irreversibly damage her entire future.  At BEST, Hillary will be seen as powerless and unable exercise leadership in regard to her supporters.  At WORST, she will be seen as conniving to sabotage her own party at the most crucial political moment in a generation.  Either way, her career will be over.

You can believe what you like-I am not a Republican and have come on here to advocate for Hillary to be on the ticket of slimeball.  Now that she's not going to be, I will be off soon and will be working for the next 2 months for Obama's defeat.  First I as well as my wife will go downtown to the Town Clerk's office and change our registration from D to R. Then we will write letters to the editor, call CSPAN (I got on Sunday morning at about 7:15 if anybody was watching), and blog whereever we can.

Re: Good

Go right ahead but I'll be doing my darndest to try to get every Clinton voter I know not to weaken.  A NEW CNN poll has been just released--this shows that 27%, I repeat 27% of Clinton voters are switching to McCain.  So it seems the percentage has gone up since it was learned that HRC was not even considered for the vice presidency (something I said on this board last Monday).  If you think we are going to countenancve this series of INSULTS you are mistaken--and don't worry about the country-it will survive until the next campaign.

Re: You won't do it

Re: GOP Bashes Hillary

news flash - the primary is over.  This is what I referred to, when you bash those who are on record for voting for Barack, what's your point?  If you're trying to change my mind, it isn't working.  

This is a democracy, we're all allowed to have opinions, and to state them when whenever we wish.  Barack will need votes from many who aren't that impressed and would like him to be a better candidate. If all he needed were cheerleaders, who get angry when someone jokes about their candidate or gives suggestions for improvement, he wouldn't be tanking.

Let's stop the tanking, let's try to get along with each other?

Re: GOP Bashes Hillary

I do find it relatively funny and somewhat ironic that in one statement the GOP operative mimics one faction of the Democrats on the blogs and then, as swift as can be, does a 180 and mimics the opposing faction of the Democratic blogs.

That alone should be enough to tell both sides to STFU.

Re: GOP Bashes Hillary

This is pretty tame stuff given the abuse the Republicans have heaped on Hillary Clinton during the past 16 years.  She's the bitch of "How do we beat the bitch?"  One of the original Feminazis.  Hitlery.  The Hildebeast.  Remember that whole deal about Newt Gingrich's mother, Connie Chung, and that word which rhymes with witch?  Who do you think the inventor of the Hillary Clinton nutcracker voted for in 2004?

This is the point where I'm supposed to get all huffy, and say that if McCain is elected the GOP will overturn Roe v. Wade, blah blah blah, yadda yadda.  Yeah, it's all true.

If McCain wins because the GOP gets pro-Clinton Dems to vote for him, though, seriously, I'd laugh my ass off.  I despise the cause but would admire the skills.  If you'd asked me last year I would  have suggested the GOP crossed the line on Hillary Hatred about 15 years ago.  

But I guess not.
