Hillary Clinton’s challenge to inspire party trust
More beneath the fold.
Dear Knobs at the FT, Hillary is a pathological liar, one never trusts a pathological liar. Really! Did it hurt when you fell off the turnip truck?
"A public figure for more than two and a half decades, Mrs Clinton will need to somehow cast herself in a new light." You mean trustworthy, and likable? Like that could ever happen.
"On Wednesday, vice-president Joe Biden acknowledged that Mrs Clinton, and the Democratic Party more broadly, were having trouble connecting with white working-class voters in a way that Mr Trump was not.
“I think the Democratic Party overall hasn’t spoken enough to those voters. They’ve done the right thing for the voter — haven’t spoken to them,” Mr Biden told MSNBC’s Morning Joe."
Biden is such a flapdoodle. Joe, buddy, the Democrat party has been at war with white working-class voters for years. I am sure a good pat on the hand, and an abortion brochure will fix everything. Don't forget to tell them you graduated top of your law class, or some other malarky.
"Speaking on his wife’s behalf on Tuesday, Bill Clinton tried to present a more personal side of Mrs Clinton, speaking of their courtship, her record in public service and her at times steely determination.
“In the spring of 1971 I met a girl,” Mr Clinton began, before going on to chronicle Mrs Clinton’s personal and professional achievements. “She’s insatiably curious, she’s a natural leader, she’s a good organizer, and she’s the best darn change maker I ever met in my entire life.'"
Well, she did change Bill into a HornDog willing to bang some of the most homely women around! Change Bill can believe in! So, Bill tell me again all about the wonderful relation you had with Hillary while you were spending nearly every spare moment trying to hook up with women. But now that I think of it, I am not ready for another foray into the dysfunctional House of Clinton, so don't bother.
"Yet, some said that recent revelations raised alarm bells — such as comments by Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, a longtime friend, that Mrs Clinton would ultimately support the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.
While the Clinton’s campaign disavowed Mr McAuliffe’s remarks and insisted that Mrs Clinton had no plans to back the deal, for many Sanders supporters the remarks raise revived fundamental questions over Mrs Clinton’s trustworthiness."
The hoi polloi is suppose to rally around the candidate not have actual opinions on policy, so shut up, she argued!
If Hillary must inspire trust, this is likely a bridge too far.
