Hillary Team Once Again Blames Everyone For Her Loss

Hillary Team Once Again Blames Everyone For Her Loss

It is NEVER Hillary’s fault.

Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government holds a forum with the presidential campaign teams every four years after the election. This year provided more entertainment than usual as Hillary Clinton’s team once again melted down and blamed everyone for her loss…everyone except her.

The prime suspects in Hillary’s team’s eyes? FBI Director James Comey, unfair media coverage (go ahead and laugh at that one…I did), an unfair “double standard” because Hillary’s a female (SEXISM!), and the Russians.

Nope. Not one time did Hillary’s team admit that the Democrats chose an awful candidate that no one liked who never expressed an actual plan as Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway pointed out:

“Do you think you could have just had a decent message for white working-class voters?” Conway asked the Clinton team, then sarcastically offering a message: “How about, it’s Hillary Clinton, she doesn’t connect with people? How about, they have nothing in common with her? How about, she doesn’t have an economic message?”

Nope:

Joel Benenson, Clinton’s chief strategist, responded: “There were dog whistles sent out to people. . . . Look at your rallies. He delivered it.”

Oh, it gets so much better:

Clinton adviser Mandy Grunwald said the Trump campaign had operated in the world of “dark arts.” As an example, she flashed the final issue of the National Enquirer, essentially describing Clinton as a corrupt criminal who should be thrown in jail.

“I don’t think you guys give yourself enough credit for the negative campaign you ran,” Grunwald said. “I think it was an incredibly effective negative campaign, and you guys don’t get credit for it.”

Did Grunwald just describe Trump as Voldemort and his campaign team as Death Eaters? I cannot even or odd with these people because I’m laughing too hard.

Get this. Jennifer Palmeieri, Hillary’s communications director, said the team would only do one thing differently: demand a fourth debate:

When Clinton wasn’t on stage with Trump, it was difficult for her message to break through, she said — setting up a dynamic of “Hillary versus Hillary.”

“What hurt us was (the Trump campaign) coming after her or the press picking at us,” Palmieri said.

Then the team blamed FBI Director James Comey. His agents took a year to investigate Hillary’s personal email server while she served as secretary of state. In July, he recommended the Department of Justice not press charges against Hillary despite the careless behavior of her team. Then it emerged that the FBI found emails on devices belonging to top Hillary aide Huma Abedin as the department investigated her estranged husband Anthony Weiner.

But Comey decided a few days later that he has not changed his mind about prosecuting Hillary. The Hillary team remains convinced this letter somehow changed everyone’s minds:

A second problem was Mr. Comey’s announcements, just days before the election, that the FBI would investigate additional material related to its inquiry into Mrs. Clinton’s emails and his subsequent statement that the new emails didn’t change the agency’s conclusion that Mrs. Clinton had committed no criminal wrongdoing.

The two announcements came as Democrats and Republicans who had been undecided or backing third-party candidates were returning to their home parties, Mr. Mook said. The Clinton team said that while Mr. Trump continued to consolidate Republicans, the Comey letters stopped Mrs. Clinton’s progress in consolidating Democrats.

Undecided voters, meanwhile, broke for Mr. Trump in larger margins than the Clinton team expected, which Mr. Mook also attributed to the Comey announcements.

Hhhhmm….Conway’s responses make me think maybe Hillary should have hired her. Conway pointed out the month of August, which saw Hillary gain a YUGE bump in polls. She noticed Hillary disappearing into “closed-door events, raising money.” Conway used this as an advantage for Trump:

“She got a good bump, but then she almost disappeared,” Ms. Conway said. She said she counseled Mr. Trump to go to where Mrs. Clinton wasn’t—Michigan and Wisconsin, which he eventually won. While critics questioned the moves, “maybe the internal polls said we were down 2-3 points in those places, and not 10.”

At the same time, “we noticed that she [Mrs. Clinton] had not returned to Wisconsin, and we had no idea why,” Ms. Conway said.

After Conway made that point, Hillary aide Robby Mook admitted the campaign “should have invested more in Upper Midwest states that Mr. Trump wound up winning.”

Maybe not. I am still shocked that hardly anyone has brought up the silent Trump supporters, especially when the Hillary campaign blames the media for bias against her. The fact is the media latched onto the most extreme and fringe supporters of Trump and portrayed ALL Trump supporters as racist, sexist, and homophobes. This caused many to not voice their support of Trump.

The New York Times public editor Liz Spayd ripped into her publication after her desk received five times more than normal complaints about its coverage during the election.

Why argue with them? Let them create ineffective solutions to misidentified problems for as long as it takes for them to reach oblivion.

The thing is Hillary *did* have a message for middle-class, middle-America.

To the small businesses: (censored) you, I’m going to tax, regulate, and harrass you out of business because you don’t have enough money to pay me off.

To the farmers: (censored) you, I’m going to sic the EPA and the Dept. of Labor on you for every action you take that isn’t to our liking because you don’t have enough money to pay me off.

To the young graduates: (censored) you, because we’re going to import underskilled H1B visa holders to take over every position you are qualified to hold now while hammering you for the student loan debt we were so helpful in getting you to take out.

To the underskilled labor market: (censored) you, because illegal aliens will do your jobs for half the cost.

To the gun owners: (censored) you, because we’re going to tax the heck out of your products while repealing the legal protections extended to the manufacturers, making it so you can’t afford to even go to the range any more.

And so on, and so forth. So yes, she did have a message.

I guess it’s verboten now to state the plain and simple truth: the fact that anyone is even discussing “what cost Hillary the election” is a shame upon our nation, because she shouldn’t have been on the ballot in November. Instead, she should have been in jail, weeks before the Democratic convention, awaiting trial for multiple felonies including treason.

The Trump team is too sold-out or cowardly to make that point thematic, so we, the people, should do so.

It’s what losers do…

Donald Trump appeared at 220 campaign events, Hillary had, what, a handful? I looked but couldn’t come up with a number. She didn’t try because she was winning, according to all the polls. Clearly, they conspired to keep her and her posse misinformed. So they just sat around ordering pizza, or something.

    Low energy, amwick. Low energy.

    Yep. “Cheese pizza” from Comet Ping Pong, according to John Podesta.

    The media tried to disenfranchise potential Trump voters by reporting Hillary as so far ahead in the polls that it’s not even worth voting; she’s going to win regardless. This technique backfired spectacularly when Hillary’s camp followed Obama’s foreign intelligence-gathering policy, which can be summed up in two words: watch CNN.

    So the MSM doctors the numbers to prop up Hillary, with the full support of Hillary’s camp, and then when the MSM reports the doctored numbers, Hillary’s camp believes them (it’s on the news, it must be true!).

    IOW, they swallowed their own BS, and were too out-of-touch to realize it.

Who knew the KKK had so many voters to turn out?

Trump is Voldemort?

No the Dark Lord is occupying the Oval Office right now. ( Actually, to be picayune I think he is still overseas. )

She and Bill are responsible for this fiasco.

Bill and Hillary decided that Trump would be a formidable candidate, for for that reason, decided to pursue a campaign to attack his character as “dangerous and bigoted.” The New York Times did not merely report the strategy, but adopted it.

They got the DNC to adopt a written policy to promote violence against DJT voters and blame DJT.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/08/10/left-planned-stage-violence-embarrass-trump/

These notions were implemented, with gusto.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IuJGHuIkzY&feature=youtu.be&t=9m35s

And THEN, people talked to James O’Keefe’s people, FOIA requests were made, and the DNC, Clinton Campaign, FBI, and NYPD all sprang leaks.

All this happened because normal people that came in contact with this campaign, as well, obviously, as some that worked for it, were horrified by it.

In sum: The fish rotted from the head, and a whole mess of Democrats jumped up, and sad, “This stinks!”

Clinton adviser Mandy Grunwald said the Trump campaign had operated in the world of “dark arts.” As an example, she flashed the final issue of the National Enquirer, essentially describing Clinton as a corrupt criminal who should be thrown in jail.

Does Trump or one of his subsidiary companies own the National Enquirer?

Because if not, I’d say it’s a far simpler explanation (and therefore more likely, due to Occam’s Razor) that the NE portrayed Clinton as a corrupt criminal who should be thrown in jail … oh … because she is a corrupt criminal who should be thrown in jail.

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, you know.

The grandest irony is that the National friggin’ Enquirer was probably the most honest voice in all the media, which is pretty damn pathetic if you ask me.

    Trump and National Enquirer CEO David Pecker are long time buddies. Pecker helped Trump in th primaries by publishing false stories about Ted Cruz – the supposed five extramarital affairs, the crazy shit about Cruz’ father being somehow involved in JFK’s assassination, etc.

    Of course, it isn’t necessary to make up stories about Hillary Clinton. Her reality is worse than anything the NE could dream up, lol.

    “It’s widely known that Pecker, the Enquirer CEO, is a personal friend of Trump’s, a relationship an anonymous Enquirer source told New York magazine is “very close.”

    Grunwald is upset because their usual array of dirty tricks didn’t work this time. They actually had to earn their pay this time and didn’t quite know how to do that.

    That will teach them to pop champagne on the last campaign flight home, book a monstrous convention center for their election party and order up a fireworks display.

    It’s just unseemly. They got outplanned, outflanked, and outworked by a hungrier Trump team.

    I know. The last few months I keep thinking of this scene from Men in Black:
    <blockquote:Kay: [at newsstand] We'll check the hot sheets.
    Jay: *These* are the hot sheets?
    Kay: Best investigative reporting on the planet. Read the New York Times if you want, they get lucky sometimes.

When your political opponents can do nothing but export all blame for their monumental failures – a sure pathway to future losses and failures – the best thing to do is just smile, turn, and walk away.

Sure, Hillary. Sure Democrat Party. That’s what happened. It wasn’t your fault. Just keep on keeping on. Lightning never strikes twice. Redemption and revenge are right around the corner.

Have the Democrats finally moved past “It’s Bush’s fault?” I wasn’t sure I’d live that long.

    murkyv in reply to windbag. | December 2, 2016 at 6:15 pm

    It’s Jeb Bush’s fault that he couldn’t even make it through the first round of primaries so he could be the designated loser in the General.

Hillary and her supporters never missed an opportunity to remark on how historic her candidacy was and how wonderful it would be for the country to have a woman President, and I believe that became the campaigns message.

The Democrats saw that as a positive and uplifting message and didn’t realize how condescending it was to voters who actually have real concerns about where the country was headed.

Also, I think eight years of Obama talking about how historic his Presidency was while continually playing the race card at every opportunity gave voters a preview of what was to come, and most said “yeah, not this again.”

    I live in CT, a state that has been completely Dem run for six years in addition to the 8 years of Dem federal administration, in the county with the least economic “recovery” in that state, and almost everyone I know (including myself, thanks PPACA!) is under or un employed. A party whose only platform seems to be “More of the same. Just better with vagina!” isn’t going to have a lot of luck getting me to vote for them.

    I haven’t been able to get any of my acquaintances who voted for Hillary to explain what Hillary was going to do to improve our economic situation. I honestly think they don’t know, they just “know” that anyone with an (R) after their name is “bad”. /smh

ugottabekiddinme | December 2, 2016 at 8:00 pm

Palmieri sets the new standard for “deplorable.”

the new emails didn’t change the agency’s conclusion that Mrs. Clinton had committed no criminal wrongdoing.

Faced with such spectacular failure, the Dems could try a radical change of tactics. Like, maybe, stop lying …

… about …

everything.

Hahaha, just a thought …

We have endured the lat 8 years where Obama, when he decided that if he did not like a certain law, (e.g., immigration), then he would create an Executive Order telling government workers to ignore it. In other cases he would write Executive Orders to create new laws out of whole cloth. These efforts have been complimented by agencies such as the IRS or EPA who create regulations or engage in practices that are clearly against the law or public opinion, but they don’t seem to care because the ends justifies the means. We even observe Democrat politicians openingly lying and performing other unethical and even illegal behavior, but, since they are Democrats, great efforts are expended to rationalize and defend their behavior. We even now have evidence in the form of emails and video tapes of how the DNC and Hillary’s campaign engaged in violence and intimidation to try to either sway Trump supporters or to blame Trump supporters for the violence being waged upon Trump supporters.
>
Now that Hillary has lost the election, we are hearing about how the Electoral College should ignored because Hillary won the majority of votes. We watch as voters from the Electoral College are attacked to the point of receiving death threats if they do not change their vote to Hillary. We even see clearly transparent attempts to demand for recounts to “ensure accurate results are obtained”, but strangely these recounts are only in those states lost by Hillary and not any state where Hillary’s win was by a far smaller margin. What is lost in all of this is that the voting system is operating under the mandate to primarily produce fair elections and not focus on creating accurate elections.
>
Should we be surprised? These attempts to find excuses to get Hillary into the Presidency are nothing more than a continuation of their unethical and unlawful behavior. Hopefully one of the reasons why Hillary lost is because of this behavior and hopefully the public will become even more enraged at the Democrat Party as they continue to use these highly questionable methods to get their way. The only question left is whether or not the Democrat Party and the public is smart enough to figure this out and whether or not the Democrat party will change or will continue to embrace their current unacceptable behavior.

    Let me take a stab at your “only question left”:
    The dems are about to have a muslim be the head of their party. Does any rational infidel expect truth from a muslim-led organization?
