There’s another Democrat debate tonight, but sadly it’ll be minus the charisma and excitement Martin O’Malley brought to the table with his grand vision to make the entire country look like Baltimore. Instead we’ll only have Hillary and Bernie competing to see who can confiscate the most wealth (so far Hillary’s way ahead on that one), make everything “free” and generally bankrupt the country on climate change shams faster than you can say “Solyndra.”
And if you need a laugh for the day, look no further:
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell incredibly said Thursday on The Today Show that Clinton had an opportunity to “re-introduce herself to New Hampshire voters” at Thursday night’s MSNBC debate between her and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), implying that maybe voters don’t know Clinton well enough.
“Trying to narrow the gap here, but counting on blunting Sanders’ momentum three weeks from now in South Carolina, where Bill Clinton was already campaigning Wednesday night,” Mitchell said. “And tonight’s debate is really Hillary Clinton’s last chance to re-introduce herself to New Hampshire voters, who are so far overwhelmingly supporting Bernie Sanders from neighboring Vermont.”
Despite Clinton being First Lady for eight years, serving in the U.S. Senate for eight years, serving as U.S. Secretary of State for four years, and now running for president a second time, her campaign and media allies have consistently atoned for her poorer-than-expected showings by suggesting she can still “re-introduce herself.”
Whenever “reintroduce” is used in reference to what Hillary should do, it means “tell some lies to cover for the previous lies that are backfiring.”
And you can be certain the MSNBC mods will give Hillary a chance to defuse the “that’s what they offered” grenade she pulled the pin on and dropped down her own pantsuit last night.
Sanders handed Hillary the nomination on a silver platter engraved with Eugene Debs’ name by refusing to go after the areas where Hillary’s most vulnerable (mishandling classified info, Libya, the ridiculou “re-set” with Russia when the Pentagon now considers them to be back to Cold War status, etc). And when Hillary claimed Colin Powell handled classified info the same way she did (which is new Dem talking point), any response from Sanders other than “fine, then let’s arrest him too” proved his “truth to power” shtick has a lot of exceptions.
