HILLARY CAN BE BEATEN

Posted by Tim Bryce on August 19, 2015

BRYCE ON POLITICS

– She is certainly not invincible as our president has already proven. In fact, she is quite vulnerable.

Regardless of how the liberal media and Democrats try to portray the invincibility of Secretary Hillary Clinton as candidate for president of the United States, she can certainly be beaten. She has many weaknesses, one of which is the myth that it is “her turn” to be president as touted by her supporters. Obviously, presidents should be elected based on qualifications, not turns, but these are strange times we are living in and her supporters are willing to overlook her dismal record.

First, there is the issue of treating the Clintons as American royalty which can be intimidating for the faint of heart. In the 2008 election, then Senator Barack Obama, who was her biggest Democratic competitor, overcame this problem by simply leveling the playing field. By refusing to recognize her celebrity and kowtowing to her, voters discovered Mrs. Clinton was nothing more than an ordinary person. This time around though, she has the liberal media (NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBC) squarely in her corner and are charged with protecting her reputation.

To depose Mrs. Clinton from her throne, she needs to be embarrassingly beaten in the presidential debates, something she has never mastered. Her competitors, be it Democrat or Republican, cannot afford to pull their punches and must ask the tough questions the media will not.

Second, Hillary has an excessive amount of baggage she is carrying. There is, of course, the 2012 Benghazi attack and cover-up, and the Clinton Foundation scandal. These two incidents alone have already taken a toll on her credibility and trustworthiness. However, if you dig further, you will inevitably rediscover, the Vince Foster suicide the Whitewater controversy, Travelgate, Filegate, Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan, and, of course, the Monica Lewinsky scandal involving her husband and a presidential intern. Let us also not forget her allegiance to radical Saul Alinsky, of whom she wrote her senior college thesis.

Hillary’s defenders will claim this is all “water under the bridge.” Not really. Instead, it speaks volumes about her character and the family’s pattern of abuse of power.

Third, her record of accomplishments is abysmal. As I have written in the past, the nagging question is in all her years as First Lady, Senator from New York, and Secretary of State, “What has she accomplished?” Unfortunately, nothing of substance.

Further, her positions on immigration, the economy, the Iran nuclear deal, and the president’s foreign policy, most of which she implemented, are naive attempts to sway voters. It also reveals her socialist ideology.

Unlike her competitors who clamor for the attention of the press, Mrs. Clinton wants to keep the press at bay, presumably in fear she will say something out of turn. Everything issued to the press is highly crafted and orchestrated for delivery. This means she is afraid of making an extemporaneous remark, and why she will again fail in the debates (assuming she agrees to participate in them). Her Achilles’ heel is answering any embarrassing questions which might be used against her in Congressional hearings or a court of law.

Before Hillary can face the Republicans, she must get by her Democratic challengers which currently includes Gov. Lincoln Chafee (RI), Gov. Martin O’Malley (MD), Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT), Sen. James Webb (VA), and possibly VP Joe Biden. If “Uncle Joe” jumps into the race, it is a sure sign he sees Mrs. Clinton’s vulnerability and is ready to pounce on it.

If and when she faces the Republican candidate, she will have the uncomfortable task of distancing herself from President Obama. It’s a Catch-22 for her. If she aligns herself with the president, she makes herself an easy target for his unpopular policies and programs. If she tries to divorce herself from the president, she risks losing the liberal Democratic base she desperately needs. Either way, it is a lose-lose scenario for her.

The only way she can survive is if the Republican challenger fails to openly challenge her. If they show any signs of fear or weakness whatsoever, she will own her political opponent. The Republicans must take the argument to her and put her on the defensive whereby she will crumble under pressure. They cannot afford to retreat.

As should be apparent, her highness’ slip is showing.

  1. Tim are you sure? I checked this out a James Traficant ran for his Congressional seat from his jail cell. So there is precedent here.

    Seriously though I don’t think she’s even around by the time they have an actual Primary. Right now the media is filled with spin and hype. No one has voted. Anyone can say anything. Another guess here but I think the majority of the people you see on TV hyping her, draw a paycheck from the Bill & Hill Gold and Silver Pawn Shop and Loan down there in Little Rock. Oh the polls, yeah. I happen to really like Rudy Giuliani. He was our greatest Mayor. So I’m not making a negative comment about him. But before the 2008 Presidential election he was leading in the polls. All through 2006, 2007 and even 2008 until they started voting. BTW so was HerHillaryness.

    My post for next week skirts on this point, Tim. I see Biden’s potential entry into the race as a pivotal situation but you will need to read the article to find out why. For now, Bernie Sanders is creating a lot of distraction for Hillary and her numbers are primarily being held up by that sector of the female population who still stand with her–dim, dim, dim. Bernie Sanders has the DNC shaking in their boots at the prospect that he could squeeze out the nomination if the issues facing Hillary begin to take a larger toll on her supporters. Biden has indicated that it may be October before he announces. I believe there is a definite reason that he is holding off and it has little to do with his camp being ready to go and everything to do with Hillary. Tune in next week for my take. Meanwhile, we have Hillary exercising one of Salinsky’s rules at the present–make everyone think that you are bigger than you are. Hopefully, Alinsky will be part of her downfall rather than the basis of her election. ~WB

    I live in Ireland and looking from the outside. I believe she has the qualifications having been the wife of Governor of a state, First Lady, Senator, Secretary Of State of which two in where she may have been in the supporting role but played a big part. She is an accomplished politician in her own right and has more experience than any past Presidents or any future candidate Democrat or Republican in 2016. She may not be polished in her delivery of speeches and may never be, but she tells the world , press how she sees it not smooth it over for public comsumption.

      Anthony – Thanks for your note. Yet, in all that time, what has she accomplished? Frankly, nothing. Some would say she managed to get four people killed in Benghazi.

    “There are at least five GOP candidates who could wipe the floor with Hillary in a debate as she is so monumentally unlikeable, unbelievable and devoid of charisma. People like Cruz, Rubio, Walker, Fiorinna and Carson are so much more eloquent and approachable that Hillary by comparison is no more than a cranky old neighbor telling kids to get off her lawn.”

    “Tim, really liked the article, well done. Now IF “we” could only get the true Constitutional Conservatives to read, understand & communicate the message effectively, that would be a real morale booster. IMO I might change the word “can” in your title to SHOULD &/or MUST !

    IF the Laws & The Constitution were actually being enforced & followed, IMO she would be hard-pressed to be running a campaign for POTUS from the Fed GreyBar Hotel. Between her & slickWillie, the “Clinton Foundation” has taken in over $30 MILLION just in the last 16 months, at the same time 0bama frequently jets in to D-minus, Commiefornica for more “democratic” fund raisers and “celebrity” appearances on late night comedy shows. How does anyone, even a Keynesian fraudconomist, explain how that happens apparently with no income taxes being paid?”
