Again Hillary Doesnt Apear to Be Genuine...



....The response from HRC that is looping on the cable news networks this AM again shows Hillary is not genuine about about the comments made by a staffer about Obama supposed use of drugs in High School.....she is on the negative and will stay on it. It is the only way she knows how to play.

3. Some people will always judge Hillary that way
The right-wing smears since the early 90's have found much fertile ground, even at DU.

Hillary now has been given very little margin for error. What would be excused in other candidates becomes a major negative talking point.


I have not decided whom to support in the primaries, yet. But there are many here at DU that seem to be plugged into the Republican thought on Hillary. And frankly, I find it disturbing.

10. There is a huge difference
between saying "I will work hard for change"

and "We can't change things now because it's hard work"

In fact. They are opposite points of view

5. I agree with you..........Most of the complaints I read about
Senator Clinton on this board sound just like the freeper complaints. I can't tell the difference.

And I read alot of posts on DU about the powerful Clinton smear-machine. If the Clinton smear-machine is as powerful as they say, then President Clinton would have never been impeached!

6. Maybe you should talk to a few more Dems before you hurl
accusations like that. I've voted Democratic tickets since I was 18, and I find much to object to when it comes to Hillary. I have friends and relatives who are Dems and who say they same damned things. None of us are freepers. Perhaps the thing to do would be to get Hillary to be less like one.

real Democratic winner into the White House in 08. I for one want a candidate that is going to be true Liberal, not a half baked one that thinks business as usual with big Corps. is where we want to be.

15. I haven't hurled any accusations, thank you.......
And your voting history is irrelevant to me.

And as far as you and the members of your circle who are Dems and who say the same damn things ought to be aware that you are parroting the MSM's meme of the arguments against Senator Clinton's candidacy.

17. Pretty simple.. He did admit it in his book.. and HRC's campaign
manager chose to tell the MSM that there was no way Obama could get elected President because he has admitted to past drug use. Maybe if he had taken the Clinton route of non-denial denial, and claimed that he didn't inhale they would have left him alone. Her disingenuous is in the fact that she is no better than a Republican when it comes to beating on the opposition. She and her campaign are working their way through Obama's entire life, starting with his 3rd grade paper on why he wants to be president trying to find shit to use against him. Frankly it's embarrassing to Dems, to her and to the political process.

Oh and BTW I'm not for either of them as our candidate.

14. Hillary is an "Executive" - not a "Leader"
She would ably execute any policy already accepted by Congress -- BUT she would have trouble "leading" Congress and the nation to accept change on her terms.

Not her fault at all - just where her talents lie as opposed to Obama or Edwards who have the ability to convince both heads AND hearts.

If she gets the nomination, she will even have a hard time against Huckleberry - he has the oratory gift and non-threatening presence that make people overlook his shocking inadequacies and convince voters he is a much more acceptable "leader".

Best to have Hillary in the Senate to execute another Dem's agenda.
