Hillary is History

The bad news is what Hillary said. The good news is it should finish her presidential campaign.

Hillary Clinton: ‘Smart power’ includes ‘showing respect, even for one’s enemies’

Washington Post

“This is what we call smart power — using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security, leaving no one on the sidelines, showing respect, even for one’s enemies, trying to understand and insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view, helping to define the problems, determine the solutions,” she continued. “That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.”

Toward the broader theme of women in leadership roles:

“We should do what we can to support those women who truly are on the front lines in protecting their communities against this extremist threat from ISIS and others,” she said.

In a rational world, the headline on every paper would be “Hillary ends her White House bid.” That won’t be.

Wearing a blue outfit doing her best Elizabeth Warren impression. This, instead, is one more step in her run: to cut Elizabeth Warren off from stealing the uber-left limelight. Does it work? Well, rationality was never their hallmark as is the case with national press.

I’m still waiting for her to show a little empathy to the “vast right-wing conspiracy” but won’t hold my breath. Where’s the love?

Which is worse, the comment itself or labeling it “smart power” policy? It has echoes of Obama’s Strasbourg speech that America has “shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” toward its allies. Attacking our allies is probably next after empathizing with our enemies.

Here’s hoping there is not much empathy for Hillary.

    She might be talking empathy but what she’s really asking for is sympathy for the devil

  6. Osama bin Laden’s theory of power:

    “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse.”

    If he were still alive, I wonder what Osama bin Laden would think of the horse’s ass (Hillary Clinton) and her theory of smart power:

    “…showing respect, even for one’s enemies, trying to understand and insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view…”

    LOL! I heard her speech on Fox and thought I’d roll over and fall out of bed. We’re supposed to “empathize” with ISIS for example????? She’s gone over the dark side. And taking from an old line “Far out”!!

    She should be history with what she said. It was unbelievable! But, as time passed by people will forget what she said. I hope the Repubs have an ad already waiting in the wings to show her saying what she did.

    Meanwhile while we are supposed to empathize and understand our enemies, O wants to put sanctions on Israel. Does she agree with that too?

    I hope she’s history too, but one never can tell. I do think people are sick of O’s same policy and that should damage her. One can only pray it does.

      Yea, Pepp, gone to the dark side. She is “far out”. LOL I wonder if they do these things just to show they can live on after them. Maybe she wants to show she is comeback Hillary? They should capitalize on her ignorance.
