Candidate Obama made a very telling observation in a debate on October 30, 2007:
One last point I want to make: Part of the reason that Republicans, I think, are obsessed with you, Hillary, is because that’s a fight they’re very comfortable having. It is the fight that we’ve been through since the ’90s. And part of the job of the next president is to break the gridlock and to get Democrats and independents and Republicans to start working together to solve these big problems, like health care or climate change or energy.
And here we are in 2016 and we still have the same big problems. And Hillary has added all sorts of problems to her litany of scandals. And here is the worst part: it really does not matter whether they are true. Do you believe Trump or Cruz will look at a scandal like Benghazi and say, “Well, she did the best she could in a stressful situation?” Hell no. They will slam her. Trump will rent out theaters and show 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi for hours on end, nonstop. And the press will be giving him all sorts of free air time.
They’re already gearing up to destroy her.
And let’s be honest. If the media wasn’t obsessed over Rubio making small hands jokes and Trump defending the size of his stimulus package, and also they’re infatuation with Hillary as the coronated candidate since 2009, they would be going wall to wall with coverage over the immunity being granted to her former staffer who set up her email server.
And if they still did real journalism they wouldn’t let her get away with the retroactive classification lie. From “Statement from the Inspectors General of the Intelligence Community and the Department of State Regarding the Review of Former Secretary Clinton’s Emails” released on July 24, 2015:
The IC IG found four emails containing classified IC-derived information in a limited sample of 40 emails of the 30,000 emails provided by former Secretary Clinton. The four emails, which have not been released through the State FOIA process, did not contain classification markings and/or dissemination controls. These emails were not retroactively classified by the State Department; rather these emails contained classified information when they were generated and, according to IC classification officials, that information remains classified today. This classified information should never have been transmitted via an unclassified personal system.
This is a huge issue and Clinton supporters and the DNC are naive and playing a very dangerous game with a very damaged candidate. She is not worth it.
Bernie Sanders has shown overwhelmingly he can run strong against ALL the Republican candidates:
And so far no scandals have come out. Heck, he has had a consistent, verified platform his entire political career. Hillary has evolved constantly.
And Hillary is clearly seen as dishonest, while Bernie is seen as honest.
And, we still have not seen the transcripts from Hillary’s Wall Street speeches.
