Hillary’s race pandering hits a new low
As she sees the presidential nomination slipping away from her once again, Hillary Clinton plumbs new depths of craven race-pandering, ginning up racial resentment with a bizarre invocation of racism. Shushannah Walshe and Liz Kreutz of ABC News report:
Hillary Clinton stepped up her attacks today against Republicans vowing to block whomever President Obama nominates to the Supreme Court, accusing them of racism and bigotry.
“The Republicans say they’ll reject anyone President Obama nominates no matter how qualified. Some are even saying he doesn't have the right to nominate anyone, as if somehow he's not the real president,” Clinton said during remarks at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, referring to the recent passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
“You know that's in keeping what we heard all along, isn't it?" she continued. "Many Republicans talk in coded racial language about takers and losers. They demonize President Obama and encourage the ugliest impulses of the paranoid fringe,” she continued. “This kind of hatred and bigotry has no place in our politics or our country.
"The president has the right to nominate under the Constitution,” she added to cheers.
There are no limits to her venality.
