Political reporters unload on Hillary’s gaffetastic day

posted at 6:31 pm on June 9, 2014 by Noah Rothman

The definition of a “gaffe” in politics, the columnist Michael Kinsley observed, “is when a politician tells the truth.” Hillary Clinton told the truth today, and she probably regrets it.

Clinton’s first gaffe of the day was revealed in a clip of an interview she gave ABC’s Diane Sawyer. In that interview, Clinton attempted to relate to the working man by saying that, in spite of her family’s current multimillion dollar annual income, they were “dead broke” and “struggled” after leaving the White House.

They were so broke that they couldn’t afford the mortgage on multiple houses, including the house Hillary had to purchase in New York in order to run for U.S. Senate.

“Is it fair to say that this is a gaffe?” CNN host Jake Tapper asked his guests. He noted that, similar to an attack on Sen. John McCain in 2008 over multiple houses, this statement suggests that Clinton is not tuned in to the concerns of average Americans.

“I’ve been writing about Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches for almost a year, and a question that keeps coming up is, ‘Why do the Clintons need so much money?’” New York Times political reporter and Hillary hand Amy Chozick revealed.

The answer Chozick gets to this question is, apparently, perfectly unsatisfying. “It’s expensive being a Clinton,” she said.

BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith was asked why, without there being a true anti-Clinton in the Democratic Party, a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll showed that 58 percent of those surveyed do not want Clinton to run for the Democratic nomination unopposed. Even among those who lean Democratic, 55 percent say they want other Democrats to challenge Clinton for the nomination.

“People like her, but it’s sort of unclear whether she is intensely popular,” Smith observed. Maybe Hillary is just likable enough.

But it wasn’t just the sloppy answer to a question about personal finances that has irked political journalists. Tapper noted that Sawyer posed a question to Clinton about the Benghazi attack which also seemed to trip her up.

“I’m not equipped to sit and look at blueprints to determine where the blast walls need to be or where the reinforcements need to be,” Clinton said when asked if she could have done anything more to prevent that deadly attack.

Chozick said that the Clinton’s strategy when dealing with issues relating to Benghazi is to treat anyone concerned about that attack as a conspiracy theorist. “Could that answer have been better, maybe,” Chozick conceded.

Smith closed by noting that both these supposed gaffes are perfectly Kinsleyan. Clinton is not a blueprint expert. She and her husband were financially broken by the legal debts resulting from the fallout surrounding the accusation that Bill Clinton perjured himself. Nevertheless, both responses to these legitimate questions cast Clinton as callous and out of touch.

Hours ago, The Los Angeles Times characterized Clinton’s “minutely orchestrated book tour” as being executed virtually flawlessly. Maybe “a bit too perfect.” Man, the news cycle moves fast these days.

Callous, out of touch and a filthy stinking LIAR.

Hillary personally denied multiple requests for increased security at the embassy in Benghazi – the FACT that the embassy was left virtually unsecured, after months of specific threats, with Ambassador Stevens begging Hillary and the State Department to do something, and on the anniversary of 9/11 – is HER fault, and yet, she continually refused to take any responsibility.

As far as being “DEAD BROKE” – no one believes this outlandish, and easily debunked claim.

Hillary has done a tremendous amount of damage to herself, and she doesn’t have the “race card” to fall back on, so, she might really be in trouble.

This is another reason why the Republican voters in 2016 vote for either Scott Walker or Ted Cruz. Those two are not rich at all. They can use Democrat Evil Rich card against Hillary. Whenever they go onto a t.v. show they should remind people how rich Hillary is and how much her several houses cost when she left the White House. Scott Walker or Ted Cruz campaign folks should do everything Democrats used against Mitt. That should be one of the big campaign theme in 2016. How Hillary can not relate to the average voter.

PatMac on June 9, 2014 at 7:13 PM

Democrats as a whole and the Clintons, in particular, have had such a free ride from the press, I doubt they can handle anything approaching the way the press would treat a Republican. Is the press willing to treat her like a Republican? I doubt it but she’s not going to get the free ride Obama did.

Now, with Obama, if you question him, you’re a racist. If you need information, he stonewalls and the press allows him to get away with it. Take your pick, anything related to a scandal, and just think if it had happened in the Bush administration would there be no questions about them.

It’s obvious fast and furious was a lot more than the press has reported, yet no one looks at it. Benghazi cries for the press to investigate, yet nothing, in fact with Benghazi, Pravda and Izvestia trumpet the administration line that Republicans are just trying to drum something up for the mid-terms. Yet Trey Gowdy’s questions still hang out there and the press still feels no shame for their conduct on Benghazi.

Anyway, getting back to the subject at hand, Hillary will never get this sort of free ride and if she thinks she will, she’s really in for a rude awakening. In fact, she’s not even going to get to play the woman card because the press has allowed the race card so much that no one is going to vote for someone who’s going to play this game for another 4 years. I believe voters will want someone who’s accountable, unlike Obama, and they won’t put up with another victim.

So, with the feminist card destroyed, and the press trying to prove they’re not the same now that Obama’s on his way out, Hillary will be in for a lot of trouble. Sure, the press wants a Democrat to win next time around, but they don’t necessarily want it to be Hillary.

Hey, it’s expensive to defend and keep your husband in office after he’s been found diddling the intern and harassing women and lying about it repeatedly. If only he had told the truth from the beginning, Hillary may have been able to save millions in legal fees and buy her way into the senate with a $2.5 million home instead of having to live in squalor with one that was only $1.7.

Even if it were true, being “broke”, in this context, means almost nothing. Neither of them has had to worry about where their next meal was coming from in a very long time, if ever – especially Hillary:

“I’m not equipped to sit and look at blueprints to determine where the blast walls need to be or where the reinforcements need to be,” Clinton said when asked if she could have done anything more to prevent that deadly attack.

Such a bull$hit non-answer.

Nobody asked or expected her to design security for the Benghazi consulate. But as the chief executive of the State Department, it was her job to hire and supervise people who would make sure that our consulates and embassies had adequate security.

It is undisputed that the Benghazi consulate did not have adequate security, and it is also undisputed that Chris Stevens and others repeatedly alerted Clinton’s State Department of this fact and requested better security. It is also undisputed that those requests were denied by State, either by Clinton herself or by subordinates working under her supervision. And it is also beyond dispute that Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans died as a direct result of the inadequate security at the consulate.

Clinton clearly could have done more to prevent that deadly attack: she could have done her damn job.

AZCoyote on June 9, 2014 at 7:35 PM

Hillary acts as if she’s suffered like Scarlett O’Hara

scalleywag on June 9, 2014 at 7:38 PM

“I’m not equipped to sit and look at blueprints to determine where the blast walls need to be or where the reinforcements need to be,” Clinton said when asked if she could have done anything more to prevent that deadly attack.

This answer shows that Clinton completely misunderstands national security, that she was more concerned about the structure of the consulate building than the PEOPLE assigned to protect it.

Any attempt to turn a consulate into a fortress or a blokhaus would fail, because Libyan or American people that had a legitimate reason to enter the consulate would have to have a gate through which they could pass, after going through a required security check.

The major security problem in Benghazi was not the structure, but the lack of adequate armed American security personnel to protect it and the Ambassador (who should not have been there, but in the embassy in Tripoli), and the lack of military assets ready to intervene if it was attacked.

Steve Z on June 9, 2014 at 7:42 PM

Slight correction: when a Federal judge finds that you have committed perjury, it isn’t an accusation, it’s an established fact. Continuing to use “accusation” plays right into the Clintonian VRWC meme. Falsely.

Chozick said that the Clinton’s strategy when dealing with issues relating to Benghazi is to treat anyone concerned about that attack as a conspiracy theorist.

Yes, well said. What many of us by now are well familiar with, too. It’s Hillary’s specialty, that retaliatory implication when questioned about her ongoing bad job performance(s).

Meanwhile, no one still can’t define anything Hillary Clinton has ever accomplished that is noteworthy. She’s “just Hillary”.

Foolish, foolish, misguided and misguiding Hillary.

Lourdes on June 10, 2014 at 12:33 AM

“I’ve been writing about Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches for almost a year, and a question that keeps coming up is, ‘Why do the Clintons need so much money?’” New York Times political reporter and Hillary hand Amy Chozick revealed.

Yes, and not “so much money” but so very much money. And yet Hillary and Bill and their “struggling” continues. It’s an absurd pretense they continue to present, that multi-millions present them with just.so.much struggling.

Does Hillary even know what money is? I’m starting to wonder if she’s really and only a person with so many mental problems that she doesn’t know how to balance (or pay for)_a milk money budget.

Lourdes on June 10, 2014 at 12:36 AM

Getting the servants to provide a really well done Chocolate Mousse is just so difficult. Not to mention on Friday’s, the red roses aren’t included on the breakfast trays. Enough of this struggling, how much more can a Clinton take?!

But THAT nonsense from Hillary really takes the cake. Benghazi, ‘it was allll about blueprints’ so don’t bother her pretty head about such things, you cad.

Zero tied all objections to his policies to Birthers as a way to dismiss all criticism. It worked.

Now Hillary is trying to call out the crazies to tie all opposition to.

She and her husband were financially broken by the legal debts resulting from the fallout surrounding the accusation that Bill Clinton perjured himself. Nevertheless, both responses to these legitimate questions cast Clinton as callous and out of touch.

They were not broken by the ‘accusation’, they were broken by the well documented and proven lie that Clinton told under oath.

So poor the Clinton’s could not afford a house on leaving the WH.
What a whopper! The Clintons purchased their home in Chappaqua for $1.7 million in 1999, near the end of Bill Clinton’s presidency.

Clinton will not be in the WH – she is tone deaf and unable to finesse her lavish lifestyle on the democratic left. What an absolutely horrible politician – who has zero accomplishments in her senatorial and State Department careers.

Look for Cherokee Warren to reconsider her chances. While she too is a faux populist, she seems to have been able to weather the storm pretty well.

I have a solution to Killary’s financial problems. Why don’t they (the ‘He & She Team POTUS) just RAISE THE RENT they are charging the Secrete Service security and protection team? Remember? They charge rent for use of the Guest House at the Chapaqua Brown House to the Feds.
Must be easy money for the Broke Duo.

Or how about the Presstitutes ask to see BJ’s and Kill’s Form 1040′s for say the past fifteen years? Sure, that’ll happen.

Somehow it feels perfectly fitting that the Democrats have their Bob Dole moment.
