U.S. News: Clinton's Speech Morass is Her Own Fault

http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/peter-roff/articles/2016-02-26/clintons-wall-street-speech-transcript-mess-is-her-own-fault

By not releasing transcripts of her speeches to Wall Street, Hillary Clinton reinforces the notion that she has something to hide.

3. its's the definition of a morass

Morass:

"any confusing or troublesome situation, especially one from which it is difficult to free oneself; entanglement."

And bad Presidents don't win two terms?

So W was a good President? Reagan?

I see.

4. Do we say that about Trump too?

 

Nothing matters! Stop trying to vet people! If he's a bad president he just won't get a second term!

7. Trump can get away with it for some reason. The rest of them need to be trustworthy.

I have no clue what Trump's appeal is. Whatever it is, Hillary lacks it.

9. His appeal is rage.

There's a whole lot of very unhappy people in the country. It's obvious, even to Republicans, that our government is broken.

Trump expresses that rage, and then directs it towards various "others". It's not your fault that you are barely scraping by. It's those people.

Clinton lacks it because she fundamentally is an insider. She can not rage against the very system she thrives in.

10. The very system she and her husband helped create, so he could be President and maybe her, too.

11. Yep. There is no way for her to tap into this anger. And that is why she can not win the GE. (nt)

18. I don't think anger is necessarily the motivator, so there is certainly an element.

I think people are desperate, confused and frustrated. They don't know what to do anymore. They are grateful for someone who tells them it's not their fault. Etc. I think it's so much more complex than anger. We have one of the most productive work forces in the world and they can't find full time work. The Boomers lived so much better than their parents had during the Depression---until they got into their fifties--and they've been watching their kids struggle. Etc.

5. She'll never make 1st Term: Hillary's a General Election disaster in the making.

 

Having alienated 1/2 the Democratic base, having NO Independents (remember them? 43& of the
electorate), and universally hated among Republicans.

2. The Clintons always seem to have something to hide.

 

Why we expect this situation to be any different is surprising to me.

8. Just because it takes Hillary two years to comply with a subpoena and an FOIA request,

doesn't mean she has anything to hide. Same for wiping her server, like with a cloth.

Shame on you.

19. I deserve a good flogging don't I

 

for even daring to question Hillary Clinton.

I also remember those damned law firm Whitewater documents showing up long after they were requested in the 1990's.

Oops, there I go again, questions her veracity.

20. That was the subpoena reference in my post. But, I'll give you a good flogging for your

first post.


(Of course, if no one is around you could always go with the banghead emote.)

12. Wasn't my fault. I didn't force her to give conflict of interest speeches for money she didn't need

while Ready for Hillary was busy online trying to get me to click.

dozens of other pieces of baggage she has.

15. More evidence of Hill's bad judgment.

 

Coupled with her untrustworthiness, she would make a spectacularly bad president.

21. re: "reinforces the notion that she has something hide"

A "notion"? Isn't it obvious she does have something to hide? Withholding them wouldn't be worth this horrible PR if she didn't.
