Clinton(s) Campaign Tactics; Not New At All. [View all]

A quick chronological reminder.

In 2004.
John Kerry was then the nominee... Then-DNC chair McAuliffe and Clintons friend REFUSED to secure swing states voters process (like Ohio) . Bill Clinton deliberatly pushed himself forward ( book, interwiews, Kerry phone call leaks) in order to shadow the candidate, and even gave credits to Bush WHILE campaigning.
All that to protect their Bush friends and prevent a Kerry win so HRC could run in 2008.
In 2006.
When JK made his famous "stuck in Iraq" joke, HRC went around media to stab him, joining the RW choir.

Clintons spread the "Obama Is Muslim" hoax AND made racism comments on him.
As the Clintonistas now are crying wolf for BS to concede, in 2008, Hillary hold on late , refused to step down, and her Bobby comments in June told a lot about her true feelings towards Clintons political opponents.
She only gave up after getting the promise from Obama of the SoS job ( and got the jib only after she threatened him to run 2012wouldn not had SoS position been given to her)
And lets no forget the Michigan primary contoversy.

And now.
A nomination planted from the beginning.
( lucky we are Bernie is running otherwise no primaries would have occured)
Irregularities in various states.
Bernie and his supporters co stantly denued by MSM...
And so on and so on..

So yes... in swing states better vote for her than tRump.

But keep our minds aware of today' s polititics painfull reality.

Lets hold on and keep the good fight.
