Are the Clintons ready to 'Slime'?
As I told a couple of Democrat friends, Bill Clinton was rather lucky in 1992. In other words, he had Ross Perot taking 19% of the vote. He got 43% and won!
Hillary Clinton won't be so lucky:
1) No Perot to divide the white middle-class vote
2) A political landscape where she owns President Obama's foreign policy and an economy that few people are happy about.
Maybe this is why "the war room" is suddenly "the slime room", according to Maureen Dowd:
"Once they had the sly James Carville, fondly known as “serpenthead.”
Now they have the slippery David Brock, accurately known as a snake.
Brock fits into the Clinton tradition of opportunistic knife-fighters like Dick Morris and Mark Penn."
The Clintons are getting ready to do two things:
1) They want to send a message to any challenger that they've got the money and will spend it to destroy you. Are you listening, Senator Elizabeth Warren? Can you prove that you're 1/32nd Cherokee? Don't be surprised if there are a bunch of media articles quoting anonymous sources challenging her native American connection.
2) The Clintons know that they can't run on issues in 2016 will. They can not defend the Obama economy. Worse than that, Hillary Clinton, or former Secretary of State Clinton, owns this foreign policy 100%. She owns Russia and the Middle East. She did not resign when President Obama walked away from Iraq, one of the biggest foreign policy blunders ever. Benghazi is still out there! Yemen just fell. Is she seriously going to tell us that she traveled all over?
So the Clintons know that the landscape is horrible and Perot won't be around to take votes.
So get ready for Clinton "slime". I just hope that the eventual GOP nominee fights back and reminds everyone that this is a corrupt couple that will say and do anything to win an election.
