Democrats wish Hillary would shut up

Even Democrats can’t stand her.

Amie Parnes reports for The Hill, June 4, 2017, that more than a dozen Democrats, including even staunch Hillary Clinton supporters and her former aides, who were interviewed by The Hill, all say they’d like Hillary to take a cue from Obama and step out of the spotlight.

They say her string of public remarks blaming her loss in November on any and all but herself — especially those blaming the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for her defeat which many took as an indirect criticism of Obama — are hurting the party and making Hillary look bitter.

Although many empathized with Hillary’s anger over former Director James Comey’s handling of the FBI’s probe into her (illegal) private email server, the Democrats unanimously said Hillary needs to rethink her blaming tour, including the recent Recode conference in California on June 1, 2017, in which she complained she had inherited nothing from a “bankrupt” Democratic Party led by Obama for eight years.

The Democrats who wish Hillary would shut up include:

  1. Democratic strategist Brad Bannon, who said this about Hillary: “I’m not sure there is a political strategy here. It sounds to me like more of a personal strategy. Complaining about an outcome and blaming everyone else is not a good political strategy.”
  2. A longtime Hillary aide, after watching her at Recode, exclaimed: “Good God, what is she doing? She’s apparently still really, really angry. I mean, we all are. The election was stolen from her, and that’s how she feels. But to go out there publicly again and again and talk about it? And then blame the DNC? It’s not helpful to Democrats. It’s not helpful to the country, and I don’t think it’s helpful to her.”
  3. A former senior aide to Obama said Hillary’s criticisms of the DNC can make it tougher for new leaders to come forward: “It’s hard to do that when you have the former nominee out there in a newsy, aggressive manner. If she is trying to come across as the leader of the angry movement of what happened in 2016, then she’s achieving it. But part of the problem she had was she didn’t have a vision for the Democratic Party, and she needs to now take a break and let others come to the forefront.”
  4. Jamal Simmons, a Democratic strategist who worked for Al Gore’s failed presidential campaign, acknowledged some frustration among Democrats over Clinton’s remarks: “Some people I know are just frustrated that it’s happening. She is a national hero and a great public servant and has the right to be upset.” But if she’s going to discuss the loss, “it would be nice to hear a little more about the things she did wrong, which I believe mattered more than what she has discussed.” Simmons said, “When Al Gore lost the election, he went to Europe, gained weight and grew a beard. He walked away. And there’s something to that.”

Hillary’s longtime aides and advisers say she will not run for public office again, and that she feels liberated to finally speak her mind. They anticipate that Hillary will keep discussing the election, particularly to promote her upcoming book, which is expected to be published this fall.

And to that I say:

“Keep up the blame game, Hillary, so every American knows what a whiny, sore loser you are. You are ensuring another loss for your party in the 2018 midterm elections.”

Speaking of the 2018 election, Andrew O’Hehir, a Democrat and executive editor of Salon, has some interesting observations and predictions about his party’s prospects. In a recent article on Salon titled, “Wake up, liberals: There will be no 2018 ‘blue wave,’ no Democratic majority and no impeachment,” O’Hehir writes:

“For many people in . . . the left-center quadrant of the American political spectrum . . . what happened in 2016 was a nonsensical aberration . . . maybe there’s a fix right around the corner. . . .

I suspect it’s pointless to list all the things that are wrong with that scenario, because either you agree with me that it’s a delusional fantasy built on seven different varieties of magical thinking or you don’t, and in the latter case I am not likely to convince you….

Democrats have been virtually wiped out at the state and local level in non-coastal, non-metropolitan areas of the country: They had full control of 27 state legislatures in 2010, and partial control in five more; today they control 14 (with three splits)….

I have previously argued that the Democratic Party’s civil war was unavoidable and has been a long time coming…. But right now the Democratic Party has no clear sense of mission and no coherent national message, except that it is not the party of Donald Trump.”

O’Hehir predicts the GOP is “virtually guaranteed” a House majority until the next census and at least the 2022 midterms. As for the Senate, “Of the 33 Senate seats up for election next year, 25 are currently held by Democrats — and 10 of those are in states carried by Donald Trump last year. It’s far more likely that Republicans will gain seats in the Senate, perhaps by knocking off Joe Manchin in West Virginia or Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, than lose any at all.”

  2. It’s ABOUT TIME her own party became embarrassed by the Old Hag, and are suggesting she shut her trap already. #LOSER

    –“They anticipate that Hillary will keep discussing the election, particularly to promote her upcoming book, which is expected to be published this fall.”

    Aren’t “book tours” supposed to take place AFTER a book is published? Once again Hillary is shooting herself in the foot with this PRE-book-publishing “Endless Rant Tour.” Because when the book is finally published, nobody will want to buy it since she has already “cried a bucket of tears” & said everything there is to say ad nauseam (and all lies, to boot).

  6. Well, what do you expect from this cesspool of a woman – she betrayed her own people, ruined back stabber Wasserman Shultz (caca), commie Bernie Sanders and the entire demo party, to say that the party is in ruins, serves them right for thinking she was salvation. This woman is nothing but a venomous snake biting what’s left in the pit. SHE IS DONE, NEVER TO RETURN.

    • Don’t celebrate too early about the demise of Hillary—I’m betting (put me on record here) that the Dems will run far left Black Muslim Keith Ellison (supported by Sanders, Warren, Schumer….et al) for President in 2020 and he will be elected b/c of the pendulum “swing back” of the Trump election and the FAILURE of the Republicans to unite behind him—–UNLESS Republicans can unify in their Congressional majority and the Senate and stop bitchin’ over the flotsum & jetsam of life and GET ON WITH THE BUSINESS OF THE PEOPLE….and bring RESULTS…….Trump is almost DAILY out there on his OWN…….

  10. Us deplorables are not surprised, are we!? Listen, when I went to high school with this chick, we respected her grades and smarts, but we all called her “Sister Frigidaire” behind her back because she had such a cold and unlikable personality.
    Even she has told the story of being at a sports event outside where it was so cold, hockey or something, can’t remember what, but she said to one of the participants sitting next to her, “Gosh it’s very cold!” The girl looked at her and said, “I hope you freeze to death.”
    Hillary said, “Why would you say that, you don’t even know me?!” The girl answered, “I don’t have to know you to know I don’t like you.”

    This is how her personality affects people. I never liked her and she and I and a bunch of other kids were Barry Goldwater girls in 1964. She’s bossy, petulant if she doesn’t get her way, pompous and damned arrogant. I never liked her and certainly dislike her even more now.

  12. Dems want her to shut up NOW because she’s crossed the line and attacked their messiah, Obama, and their religion, the current, far-left Democratic Party and DNC. She is their past. She is irrelevant at this point to their future. It’s only going to get worse from here on out. Just wait until they get back into power and their president appoints a radical leftist to the SCotUS. And they will get in with the same nuclear option Trump had to use with Gorsuch, who was one of the best-qualified nominees in recent history…

    I actually like the idea of Billary getting fatter, growing a beard, and moving to Europe… just like Al Bore did after losing. AFTER he sued G-W in the SCotUS to demand they allow Democrats to change election rules in Florida, and the SCotUS refused (commonly misconstrued by leftists as that the Court somehow elected G-W the PotUS, or handed him the election; they merely stood by the state’s rights in an existing, established matter — vote counting, which G-W STILL won even after multiple re-counts by Dems, the GOP, and machines that didn’t care who won).

    • Mea culpa, it was Bush who sued Gore to prevent the manual re-counts and their ever-changing definition of what determined a voter’s intent, according to the type of “hanging chad”, as inspected by humans and their own inherent biases. The SCotUS said that (manual re-count) process was itself inherently unconstitutional because it did not and could not apply the law consistently to all voters, hence it violated the Equal Protection clause.
      Just watched a show, “Democracy in Action/We The People” on PBS on this very issue. Slanted per the pundits discussing the outcome, of course, but the facts were there. The timing of the case was due to the upcoming Electoral College’s vote, which was scheduled just one week from the case… which was decided a single day after it was heard, pretty phenomenal. It came after Gore had actually won the case in the FL Supreme Court, which had allowed his team to change the rules for vote counting, which led to the proposed state-wide manual re-count. That would have been an enormous task, but would have attempted to make it “fairer” by not simply applying the differential chad counting to a specific fraction of Florida’s vote.
