Hillary Relaunches Campaign All Over Again

Hillary Relaunches Campaign All Over Again

Second time’s a charm?

Hillary Clinton announced her intention to run for president back in April with the release of a video but apparently, that wasn’t the real launch of her campaign.

The second and all-new launch happened today on New York’s Roosevelt Island which, ironically, used to be called Welfare Island.

Attendees were told to expect ‘airport style security’ for the event.

Luckily for Mrs. Clinton’s staff, it doesn’t look like they had to worry about crowd overflow:

Scott Wong and Mark Hensch of The Hill described the event in this report today:

Clinton formally launches White House bid, evoking FDR

Hillary Clinton has been running for president for weeks, but that was just her warm-up act.

The former secretary of State and first lady formally launched her bid to become the nation’s first female president Saturday, with a campaign rally attended by thousands of supporters on New York’s Roosevelt Island.

Clinton served in a key post in the administration of one president, her 2008 rival Barack Obama; she’s married to another former president, Bill Clinton.

By choosing the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park as the site to kick off her second White House run, Clinton is trying to tie herself to the legacy of a third U.S. president and his wife Eleanor Roosevelt, one of her role models.
“President Roosevelt called on every American to do his or her part and they answered,” Clinton said.

“It’s America’s basic bargain – if you do your part, you ought to be able to get ahead,” she said. “When everybody does their part, America ought to be able to get ahead too.”

Clinton hit on populist themes throughout her speech, saying she wants to fight for all Americans.

“America can’t succeed unless you succeed,” she told listeners. “Democracy can’t be just for corporations and billionaires. It’s your time to secure gains and move ahead. That’s why I am running for president of the United States of America.”

MSNBC worries Hillary crowd too white, too small, and none too enthusiastic.

Clinton is clearly trying to appeal to the Warren/Sanders wing of her party, but it’s difficult to take her seriously as she attacks “rich people” while she and her husband face growing scrutiny over their own massive wealth and the foundation which provides it.

“Roosevelt Island” was known as Welfare Island when it was used principally for hospitals, from 1921 to 1971.

How fitting. Before that, it was known as Hog Island.

Heh…!!!

THINGS PEOPLE ARE NOT SAYING:

“What did you say her name is again? Hillary?

I’ll have to check her out.”

I mean, how large is the been-in-a-coma-for-the-last-couple-of-decades voting bloc?

Is it that significant?

I bet Bill was excited when they told him they were going to an island.

Overcharge!

Er, I mean “reset!”

Looks like this reset is going to be every bit as successful as her last one. (I wonder if she had a big red button made for this one too?)

    No matter what you say about it, she is keeping the frequent flyer miles.

    [No one has yet worked up the courage to tell her she doesn’t earn miles for flying on private jets].

“It’s America’s basic bargain – if you do your part, you ought to be able to get ahead,” she said. “When everybody does their part, America ought to be able to get ahead too.”

Sorry Ms. Black Pantsuit … it’s impossible to get ahead because the gubmint, by admitting 3rd-world craphole illegals by the boatload, isn’t doing its part … and jobs and wages for real Americans are evaporating faster than a glass of alcohol in the Mojave desert.

The only real job she ever had, she outsourced to Monica Lewinski.

“By choosing the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park as the site to kick off her second White House run, Clinton is trying to tie herself to the legacy of a third U.S. president and his wife Eleanor Roosevelt, one of her toll models.”

How many times and ways can a socialist be introduced and say something meaningful and new?

“Clinton hit on populist themes throughout her speech, saying she wants to fight for all Americans.”

“America can’t succeed unless you succeed,” she told listeners.

Hillary is in fact reminding us of Scott Walker’s success.

She might as well tattoo an “L” on her forehead. She’s going nowhere. Enjoy watching the humiliation.

The latest spin by seminar callers regarding this corrupt old hag is that while she was Secretary of Inebriation, she was flying all over the world ‘defending American jobs.’ It’s actually funny to listen to.

The timing of the relaunch together with the article “Bill Clinton opens up about his relationship with Hillary” on CNN.com seems more than a little desperate to me.

I can’t find the quote over at imdb.com, but in the 1997 movie, “Starship Troopers,” they refer to a ship named after Hiliary Clinton, saying it was named for “the most unyielding President in United States history“.

    Yup, my compliments to the photographer, it can’t be easy to get a crowd like that into a single frame…
