Hillary brand renovation formula officially established

Hillary brand renovation formula officially established

I have documented some of Hillary’s brand renovation exercises over the past year as she seeks to distance herself from Obama, whose “hope and change” polish has tarnished quite quickly over the past few months. It seems the more his brand falters, the more we see of Hillary.

At the swearing-in ceremony for Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, Michael Hammer, Hillary took the opportunity to break out her now-signature recipe for cool: self-deprecation, zany fun, and sunglasses (see Texts from Hillary). Watch for yourself:

As ABC reports,

Clinton then turned to Hammer’s wife and daughters  and said that since they were all in purple, she needed to be “appropriately attired” as well.  The secretary of state proceeded to put on purple mardi gras beads and what she called her “piece de resistance,” wing-tipped purple and green sunglasses.

As Obama’s recent assertion of Executive Privilege, brilliantly captured by Jon Stewart, hammers one more nail in the ho-hum “just like all the rest after all” coffin, Hillary continues to break out of the establishment mold. Where is she headed?

She’s headed straight to 2016, no matter how old she may be!

    She’s still the potty-mouthed, anti-military, Socialist that she has ever been. IOW, she’s still a b*tch on wheels.

    The conspiracy hunter in me has Obama being such an absolute screw-up that Hillary will come off as some sort of little old lady in an ugly pantsuit that means well. Plus, folks will assume that when you elect a Hillary, you get a Bubba, free.

    Come on and be honest. How many times since Obama’s election have you thought, Hillary could not have been,this damn bad? So…maybe Obama lays the groundwork, and Hillary finishes it.

      Juba Doobai! in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | June 22, 2012 at 4:38 pm

      I’ve never been crazy enough to think that. One word: Hillarycare. Hillary and Obama are two sides of the same coin. Both are Alinskyites. Both are Socialists. Both are rabid demagogues. Both are disdainful of our military. Both push a hard Communist abortion agenda. Both are pro-homosexual marriage. Both are money grubbers. I am under no illusions that Clinton is different. He is just slicker than Obama, and he lies just like Obama. Hillary lacks the charm Obama is supposed to have, but I don’t know for sure cuz I’ve never thought of Obama as charming. Cold, yes, charming never. Plus, Hillary is an underachieving lawyer and a harridan on a good day. I felt some sympathy for her in the last election cycle cuz I didn’t like Obama’s theft of the Democrat nomination, but then I got over that cuz stealing elections is part of the Democrat history. Moreover, like Obama, Hillary’s record is nothing to crow about. In conjunction with him, she’s handed the ME to terrorists and blamed Israel for everything every step of the way. She is an anti-Semite. Remember her kissing Suha Arafat? Gag!

Where is she headed?

Based on this performance…home.

Or “the home”. Take your pick.

“Self-deprecation, zany fun”? Calculated positioning is more like it.

Nah, she has been humiliated by DC so badly that she just wants to goof off and go home.

AND she’s going to own part of the extra-legal, extra-Constitutional drone killing.

The females in this pic brings to my mind how the Big-Govt / Nanny-State Hillary might be more appropriately attired.

Hillary would be quite comfortable surrounded by such types. Lest it slip from memory it was Hillary and Democrats who first tried to cram the medical mandate down our throats back in 1993. She’s through and through a Big Govt type, all for your own good you understand, whether you like it or not. She supports an enlarged and more active UN.

    Bergen Belsen was an atrocity of the Nazis. l suspect the women pictured were guards. lnmates would in no way be so clothed. With the exception of their entry to Hell where their clothing & humanity would soon be stripped. l note their facial expression. lt could be either inmate or guard. In either case it is the face of death.

Did I miss it, but it appears that Bill Clinton has fallen off the map.

    I hear there’s a new Hooters and a remodeled IHOP up near where the Clintons live. Additionally, with all the shakeups and reassignments at the Secret Service, there are now some real players on his security detail. Word around the campfire also has Bill claiming diplomatic immunity at IHOP.

Madame Secretary should watch her posterior. There’s evidence that State was also involved in F and F. Hillary’s a bigger gun grabber than Barry, so I will not pass out in shock if her name surfaces after the EP claim is thrown out. This of course assumes that Barry’s not destroying documents faster than an SS officer in Berlin on August 22, 1945.

    I was JUUSSST going to post that-

    Her finger prints are all over Fast and Furious from it’s inception-

    TrooperJohnSmith in reply to Jim. | June 22, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    Speaking of Madame Secretary’s “posterior,” I hear that it can be seen from the ISS with the naked eye.

Clintons, Bushes… how did we get these political families as such fixtures in our lives? Who are they anyway? All I see is mediocrity at best and total corruptibility at worst. This woman is wretched , lying, power-scrabbling horror show of a human being. I mean, did anyone read the Congressional report on Travelgate? I read all 300 or so pages. This woman is grotesque. Or her healthcare hearings. Or about Jonny Chung. Or the Rose Law firm documents. Or Christopher Hitchens “No one Left to Lie to.” This woman should be in jail. And she’s our Secretary of State? Something is seriously wrong in this country.

    Given all thats true ,shes still the best the dems have. l felt with Wisc. , a possible tipping point had been crossed. Given present trends continue ,l’m not sure Obama has the character to continue to absorb the abuse. lt probably will only get worse especially if we go double dip. He’s always been the golden boy able to lie his way out of any difficulty. His path cleared by enablers. Granted this is a long shot but l can see inside kingmakers putting pressure on the man “for the good of the party” etc. Hillary may be earlier than we think.

The Jon Stewart take on F&F is, sadly, much more comprehensive and in-depth than NBC, ABC, MSNBC…

Let’s hope the Romney campaign is capable of pivoting to run against Hillary, too – after the Democrat convention.

[…] a hypocrite, not a coward, not stupid, the Professor wonders aloud about Hillary Clinton and Fast & Furious: “I have documented some of Hillary’s brand renovation exercises over the past year as she […]

The secretary of state proceeded to put on purple mardi gras beads and what she called her “piece de resistance,” wing-tipped purple and green sunglasses.

I was indifferent to the video clip until the swearing-in. Clinton, wearing those sunglasses, administered the appointee’s oath to support the Constitution.

This is the kind of gesture that a privileged 1960s Boomer would have considered hip and transgressive—while the sons of the working class were being drafted to fight in Vietnam.

As the consequences of her tenure come home to roost, we may realize that Clinton ran State in the spirit of those sunglasses.

“Where is she headed?”

From the looks of it, I’m guessing Neptune.

Hilary, Shrillary-

We need new blood-


Is Elizabeth Warren the Democrats’ top candidate for 2016?

(Sorry, Professor)

Well, I think Hilary is hot. Not Janet Reno hot, but hot.

    Anchovy in reply to Henry Hawkins. | June 22, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Yeah… and she is at that point in life where she is not going to insist that someone else pay for her birth control. A real plus.

    Sometimes I can’t really blame Bill for his, well…. you know, Lewinskyish adventures. Wouldn’t you?

She pumped over $125 million taxpayer dollars into her husbands Global crook stove scam…
She should in jail.

I concur with Jim above. The State Department has to provide a waiver to permit the administration to walk, er, “export” firearms to another country, e.g., Mexico. Hillary’s name will surface in the DOJ/DEA/ATFE records when Issa gets hold of them and Hillary better hope the records showed she denied the waiver. F&F has enough megatonnage that it might well devastate the Democrats for years.

Hillary is the honey badger.

Honey badger don’t give a shit.

I find it amusing all the hate against Hillary, when many former Hillary supporters like me, while we may not support Hillary anymore, certainly find it interesting that conservatives have no clue how many Hillary, conservative dems (not many exist in the party now anyways) actually support the tea party and plan to campaign to oust Obama in november.

But please, by all means call her a b*tch and all sorts of other nasty things, maybe even call her former supporters that as well….she can and should be like anyone other person in power be critized for any wrong doing etc as SOS, and even before, but really the sexist attacks???

    Take your lecture and stick it, Alex.

    Far too many of us remember the eight years this witch inhabited the White House, the things she did and the demonizing she did to those who disagreed with her.

    Just because you may support her over Obama won’t curry you any favor here.

      alex in reply to jimg. | June 22, 2012 at 8:01 pm

      For the record I did vote for Hillary, but then I campaigned and voted for Mccain/Palin and I even campaigned and donated to many tea party limited govt conservatives in 2010. I not a dem anymore, but a registered independent.

      Please by all means attack me, call me a b*tch, and everything else that the lunatic dems called Palin.

      All you people are the same, don’t like a woman does, instead on critizing her on policy, corruption,etc, which is all fair game, you people on both sides critize women on their gender.

      Wonder if I should even bother donating to women like Mia Love, even while I don’t agree with her on everything 100% I respect her as a strong competent woman; I’m sure that in conservative’s book would label me a “b*tch” for not adhering 100% to a conservative’s views.
