Hillary Sounds Like Bernie at Campaign Launch (link to transcript)

http://www.vox.com/2015/6/13/8776067/hillary-clinton-transcript-campaign-launch

Except she's ight on substance. No specifics. Invocation of FDR.

I noticed she wanted to change the tax code for investors.... That got me a little worried. What does she mean specifically? Lower capital gains?

Says she'll have specifics in a few weeks....

Looks like Bernie's had a strong impact on Hillary already. Can't wait til she endorses him

PS - could not cut and paste on my phone.

1. Are you saying Sanders was light on substance with no specifics?

Are you sure she sounds like him?

3. No! Edited! Sanders has specifics for all his positions.

 

Looks like he's already pushed the dialog in a positive direction.

4. Yeah, that's what he was saying, but I think we know what Bernie said and his policy is

not the same as HC's. Both do outline the same problems that the next President will face, but the solutions are far apart. Bernie has specifically said that he needs to raise taxes on the very rich and the mega corporations to rebuild America and elevate all to middle class. Hillary says it's okay to be rich and she danced around some suspiciously bootstrappy ways of helping Americans rise above poverty but wouldn't say where she would get those taxes. Anyway, I need to read Hillary's speech again to make sure I understood it right, but offhand that's how it came across to me.

5. Not criticizing Hillary Clinton or anything

 

but she should already have specifics by now, not in a few weeks.

Bernie already has specific policy positions that has always been light-years ahead of Clinton

TRIGGER WARNING: HILLARY PUTDOWN AHEAD

She now has to get her 200 advisors to analyze the reaction of her speech, and see what they liked, and didn't like at the most.

Then set up focus groups to to tweak her stump speech and make her practice on it to be more folksy and human.


END TRIGGER WARNING

6. "Bernie's had a strong impact on Hillary already. Can't wait til she endorses him" LMFAO

 

She's trying to steal his wind but it won't work because she doesn't have the long track record Bernie does. All her crap is calculated.

7. It was one big --

"Don't pay attention to everything I've done for all these years please see me as those other candidates you like better."
