Bitter: Hillary Blasts Bernie for Causing ‘Lasting Damage’

Bitter: Hillary Blasts Bernie for Causing ‘Lasting Damage’

In her new book: “I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were, too.”

People have leaked excerpts from failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s memoir What Happened, which will be released on September 12.

In these excerpts, Hillary lashes out at her primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for his actions, which she claims caused “lasting damage” to the party due to his numerous attacks on her.

Hillary wrote that Sanders could not attack her on policy since the two of them agreed on many issues so he resorted to attacking her, which leaked to his supporters. She claimed that his supporters harassed her supporters online, which “got ugly and more than a little sexist.” She wanted to fight back, but no one let her, including President Barack Obama:

She reminded the readers that in one debate, she asked Sanders if she ever changed a vote “because of a financial contribution, he couldn’t come up with anything.”

Top policy advisor Jake Sullivan told Hillary that Sanders’s attacks on her reminded him of a scene out of the movie There’s Something About Mary:

Hillary continued:

Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s “Crooked Hillary” campaign.”

Hillary did not stop there. She admitted that Sanders also felt horrified at the thought of Donald Trump as president, but she took a shot at Sanders’s party affiliation:

But he isn’t a Democrat – that’s not a smear, that’s what he says. He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party.

Hillary admitted that Sanders had the correct opinion about focusing on the working family and engaging the youth while railing against spending too much time courting big dollar donors. But she then points out what he has wrong about Democrats:

But I think he was fundamentally wrong about the Democratic Party – the party that brought us Social Security under Roosevelt; Medicare and Medicaid under Johnson; peace between Israel and Egypt under Carter; broad-based prosperity and a balanced budget under Clinton; and rescued the auto industry, passed health care reform, and imposed new rules on Wall Street under Obama.

Then the dagger through the heart: “I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were, too.”

OUCH. But Hillary isn’t lying. Sanders is a self-proclaimed socialist and only joined the Democrat party to run for the presidency. He went back as an Independent after he lost.

Affects on the Democrat Party?

But who knows what this will do to an already splintered Democrat Party. The party took massive hits across the board in November, not just the White House. Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) shocked everyone when he said that the party will support pro-life Democrats. He knows the party needs more outreach and cannot have these sort of litmus tests.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is still facing a fundraising crisis as the Republican National Committee (RNC) continuously brings in the dough. Michael Whitney, the man who led Sanders’s fundraising in the primaries, wrote in Politico that it comes down to messaging. The messages from the DNC do not convince the much needed small donors to hand over money. The DNC have also had to contend with outside groups that will throw money behind any candidate, even one not backed by the party.

Professor Jacobson wrote in a post that Democrats are still trying to find their “Tea Party” candidate. There’s no denying that the Democrat Party resembles the GOP after 2008, but as the professor notes, the Party itself is trying to find one:

Tea Party candidates weren’t recruited by the GOP, they were savaged every bit as viciously by the party establishment as by Democrats. Tea Party candidates won because grassroots support overcame party opposition, not because they were recruited by the party to appear to be outsiders.

Not to mention the fact that the Tea Party was non-violent and polite unlike Antifa, the loud and vicious thugs that have become the face of the resistance against Trump. Professor Jacobson wrote:

And neither have Democrats. The Resistance has done a good job at slowing Trump down, much better than I expected. But that Resistance and the embrace of Antifa could prove toxic at the polls, because even after 8 years of Obama, people still don’t like seeing our flag burned, cops attacked, and urine used as a weapon.

Her bitter tears are better than maple syrup on pancakes!

Better even than Vermont maple syrup!

She wanted to fight back, but no one let her, including President Barack Obama…

Wait. What? I thought Hilliary was the smartest, strongest woman to ever enter politics in US history. How could she let inferior people push her around?

And she wanted to be POTUS?

    Oh, come on. Admit how unfair the whole election process was to Hillary. I mean the nomination process was such a cakewalk for the Donald – no primary opponents, full major media support and even a fawning Meghan Kelly. In contrast, Hillary had to battle the charisma laden Bernie and all of his down-home positions. What was a girl to do?

HER DNC LET him run as a Democrat !!!! None of them saw this coming?

    They could hardly stop him. Anyone can run in any primary; that’s how Lyndon LaRouche and his followers ran as Democrats, and David Duke as a Republican.

So what she’s saying is that she wanted to be the leader of this nation, but in a mere political campaign, she was unable to stand up for herself and do what she thought was right. Instead, she meekly acceded to everyone else’s wishes. Gee. What a shame she lost.

First, isn’t it “Effects” rather than affects?

Sanders may not be a Democrat, but does that excuse the cheating among the Democratic establishment and its media whores against him?

    Yes, it is “effects”. When I make mistakes like that it’s usually because I recast a sentence and missed something in the edit. So maybe that line originally read “How This Affects the Democrats”, and was incompletely changed.

Wow! Talk about Bitter Clingers!

She really thinks people still buy into the crap coming out of her mouth.

Well, that’s a sociopath for you. A lame one, too.

Well, she’s right.

Bernie’s a good Party man, if by “Party” you mean the Communists. But he’s a lousy Party man if the “Party” is the Democrats. The Dem’s only real strong point is unshakable Party discipline. They will reliably vote, and talk, and act in lockstep whenever ordered to do so by Party authority. And Bernie’s just not part of the Party machine, and therefore a weak point.

In this election he siphoned off the Young & Dumb vote, leaving those voters feeling skunked and cheated when Party skullduggery denied Bernie the nomination. Not enough of them voted for Hillary as “second best”. Then when she failed—as predicted by only a few unusually perceptive prognosticators— to clinch the mysterious “women’s vote”, her electoral goose was cooked.

So, it’s Comrade Bernie’s fault. Q.E.D.

    Actually Sanders was a tactic of hillary similar to one Richard “Da Boss” Daley used to use.
    Whenever some reformer would run against him, suddenly a black candidate would also run. The black guy would pull in the black vote splitting some vote between him and the reformer and Daley would walk in easily.

    Bernie was there to draw votes off from O’Malley or whatever te guys name was. The problem was Bernie turned out a bit too good.

Bernie didn’t do “lasting damage” to the party, he did lasting damage to Hillary. The only way this statement makes any sense is if Hillary thinks SHE is the party.

That’s an awfully kooky position.

She becomes more pathetic as time goes by.

So, it wasn’t her fault…

So she’s saying that Bernie used Fake News to try to take her down? I wonder where he got that idea?

…. love watching the sharks sensing blood in the water…

Hillary is about to tweet:

Upon further review [Rod: hey football season is nigh upon us } Bernie ran as a Rooskie Commie plot to …

Oh wait a minute. That makes sense.

Should Bernie be allowed to run as a democrat? Shouldn’t he be required to kill somebody first?

Bernie the Communist wasn’t a serious candidate as he refused to attack Crooked Hillary where she was most vulnerable. Betrayal of the country by mishandling classified information. Selling the favors of her office for millions of dollars to her bank account for BJ’s speaches and hundreds of millions in contributions to her slush fund. Lying over and over with new lies when previous lies were proven to be lies.

Hillary’s reasoning is much like that of a tween.

Every dollar given Hillary by her lib-Dem supporters is a dollar not going to the DNC or Dem candidate campaign coffers. I hope her victimhood tour is a huge success.

“President Obama urged me to grit my teeth and lay off Bernie as much as I could. I felt like I was in a straitjacket.”

And I’ll bet Donald Trump received similar advice from his campaign as well, although there’s scant evidence he followed it. Perhaps he should have, but, whatever one thinks of Trump, it’s all too obvious that The Donald is the captain of his own ship.

Et tu, Hillary?

I own a painting/drawing entitled “Woman Surprised at the Prospect of Easting Crow.” I’m going to re-titled it “Hillary Surprised at the Prospect of Easting Crow.”
