Sure, Hillary Clinton has decades of government service under her belt. But the past two years rendered her irrelevant.
Now, she can barely charge $2 a ticket to hear her speak. That’s a far cry from the six figure speaking fees she once commanded.
But if she has one thing worth listening to, it’s the warning Clinton issued to her fellow democrats. According to Hillary, 2020 is destined to be a repeat of the 2016 election that so deeply wounded one of the most corrupt politicians in American history.
In other words, Democrats don’t have the candidate to beat Donald Trump. And Hillary wants to prepare them for the hail storm headed their way.
According to Fox News:
Speaking in Los Angeles Saturday as part of the “Evening with the Clintons” tour, the former Democratic presidential nominee told the crowd she has been warning 2020 candidates they could suffer the same fate.
“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” Clinton said.
I’m not sure Hillary’s up on her vocabulary. Trump didn’t steal the election. What he did is called “winning” and he’s continued to do it with style for the past two years.
No other president in modern history has ever been forced to perform under the kind of duress democrats created for Trump.
Yet, despite the witch hunt, the Mueller report, and the countless incidents of #FakeNews plaguing his office, Trump managed to boost the economy to never-before-seen highs.
In fact, the Trump economy roars at any democrat challenger.
As we previously pointed out:
Unemployment is 4%. The stock market is soaring. The S&P and the NASDAQ just hit record highs, again.
In fact, Howard Kurtz believes the economy is the single most important factor in a bid for reelection.
Fox News quotes:
I’ve always felt that a president presiding over strong growth is far more likely to win a second term, even if other hot-button issues are dominating the news. The flip side is that strong economic anxieties can derail a reelection campaign, even if the economy is recovering from a recession, as happened when George H.W. Bush lost to Bill Clinton in 1992. And the Wall Street meltdown in the fall of 2008 helped put Barack Obama in the White House.
The nettlesome challenge for the Democratic candidates is to avoid appearing that they’re talking down a good economy or getting traction when most people are satisfied with their personal situation. During the 1982 midterms, Democrats privately hoped the jobless rate under Ronald Reagan would top 10 percent, which it did, but couldn’t say so publicly on their way to picking up 27 House seats.
Joe Biden is touted for his ability to connect with white, working-class voters in such industrial states as Michigan and Pennsylvania. But if those workers, except in certain fields, are generally doing well, that clearly undercuts the pitch.
But don’t take my word for it — ask Celinda Lake.
She’s a veteran Democratic pollster who told Politico that “we really don’t have a robust national message right now” on the economy. “We will tend to talk about things like paid leave and equal pay,” which are popular but “don’t add up to an economic message that is robust enough to win the presidency.”
Lake also said that people may not agree with Trump, but they know what his message is. “And Democrats, you don’t know what it is. And that’s a recipe for disaster in 2020.”
Back to Hillary
This woman doesn’t know how to handle a loss. Over the past two years, she’s alternated between hiding from the spotlight and trying to sell her pathetic books. Actually, she had to give them away and inflate ticket sales to create book sales, but that’s the kind of crookedness we expect from a Clinton. And frankly, people are sick of her whining and crying.
On “Fox & Friends” Monday, Bongino ripped Clinton, wondering, “Is there a politician with more temerity anywhere than Hillary Clinton?”
“Hillary Clinton’s team literally, not figuratively – ‘literally’ is the most overused word in the English language, not in this case — literally paid foreign spies to gather information from Russians to use to attack Donald Trump in the FISA court during the campaign,” Bongino said. “And she’s now complaining that the election was stolen from her? I mean, the gall, the nerve on Mrs. Clinton.”
Bongino lamented that the mainstream media has largely ignored the “real collusion” that occurred during the 2016 election.
“Why did Hillary’s team collude with Russian intelligence to feed information to our law enforcement? It’s a simple question. Why isn’t it out there?” Bongino said.
There’s really no good answer to that question. We know Hillary’s crooked. And we know there are acts of treason, dead bodies, laundered money, and many other skeletons in her closet. Somehow, she’s managed to keep a lock on it for many years. But it looks like her luck is wearing thin.
