Brazile: Asking about Hillary’s wealth is sexist, or something

posted at 2:01 pm on June 23, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

The most amazing part of this argument isn’t the Pavlovian resort to identity-card victimization, although that’s certainly amazing enough. It’s the total amnesia about how Democrats spent their 2012 summer vacation and the abject hypocrisy that follows that causes the jaw to drop. I missed this part of the Washington Post story on Democratic panic over Hillary Clinton’s continuing faceplants over her wealth, but David Frum pointed it out on Twitter (via Twitchy):

Here’s Brazile throwing the sexism card:

Strategist Donna Brazile, a Clinton supporter, said scrutiny of Clinton’s speaking fees smacks of sexism.

“I hope Hillary never apologizes for trying to earn a living,” Brazile said. “She’s no different than [former secretary of state] Colin Powell, no different than [former Florida governor] Jeb Bush, no different than anybody else who’s left public office and looked for ways to make an income. . . . What is wrong with a woman having the same earning potential as any man?”

Ahem. Brazile and her fellow Democrats spent all summer in 2012 attacking Mitt Romney’s wealth and the business he created, even while Barack Obama kept a former Bain exec as an advisor. Harry Reid accused Romney of tax evasion for a decade, allegations which proved utterly false, in an attempt to pressure Romney into releasing his income tax records for Democrats to attack — which they did, incessantly. Romney, who never pretended to be a middle-class guy “struggling” to pay his bills, got repeatedly painted as a prep-school elitist who couldn’t possibly understand the experience of middle America on the basis and origin of his wealth.

Now, suddenly, focusing on wealth is not just improper but sexist. In Clintonworld, what’s good for the gander is decidedly not good for the goose, so it’s time to smear critics to pre-empt the attacks. Outside Democrats aren’t the only ones panicking over Hillary’s gaffe-a-thon, apparently.

Later in the morning, Al Hunt dismantled Brazile’s argument on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, although without mentioning Brazile. Hunt even mentions the Bushes in contrasting Hillary’s hypocrisies and falsehoods to the manner in which wealthy political families have reconciled their status with voters:

The issue isn’t really wealth, but the Clintonian impulse to spin and prevaricate rather than deal with issues honestly and forthrightly. It didn’t take Hillary long to remind Americans of the more negative aspects of the Clinton era, and not long after that for her apologists to smear people for pointing it out. Just like old times

Spin, Hillary, spin!

The best part of all this? The left is going to take her down. She’s too much on the right for them.

And after Obama, they are going to double down on some idiotic commie, and (hopefully) get their clocks cleaned. I don’t think America is going to buy Obama, mark II. Hillary is a moderate (comparatively speaking; she’s really a commie like the rest of them, but she’s not Stalin, and that’s what the left wants).

I hope America watches Hillary get tossed out. Even if they run Warren, I think a lot of women will be turned off from the whole “we gotta be historic and elect a vagina!” bit once Hillary destructs.

Mr. D on June 23, 2014 at 2:11 PM

As I’ve said in the numerous other threads covering this topic, the real dilemma for the Dems is that they’ve gone full-blown Marxist with the whole class warfare/income inequality mantra over the last few years(nominating a Communist as your President has that effect). We’re way past the days of Bubba just wanting to raise taxes on the wealthy. And to make matters worse, middle and lower income people are not exactly doing well for themselves in the Obama economy, so listening to an uberrich politician try to relate to them is more than a little condescending.

Doughboy on June 23, 2014 at 2:11 PM

What is wrong with a woman having the same earning potential as any man?”

Typical leftist hypocrisy. Who is questioning that a “woman” (I guess Killary sorta qualifies for that label) is earning as much as a man who leaves office in disgrace and makes a career out of signing ghost-written memoirs and getting kickbacks from supporters for making trite carefully scripted speeches? I don’t recall anybody saying Killary shouldn’t be raking in millions as a professional liar.

The rub here is when a multi-millionaire starts whining about how poor she is when even her worthless stupid daughter is making more than 15 times the average annual salary for people whose last name isn’t Clinton. I have no tears to shed as Killary has to resort to Lobster Helper to stretch her food budget.

Neither Powell nor Bush are running around talking about how “poor” they are. That’s the difference, Donna.

LOL. Great strawwoman, Donna, but her slip is showing and she’s not wearing panties. She’s different than Jeb and Colin and mostly everyone else who’s left public office because the others didn’t ludicrously complain that they were “dead broke” when they did so.

“I hope Hillary never apologizes for trying to earn a living,”

This is NOT the point, Jamoo/Jeantel of TV.

Hillary should just say “I’m rich and I wish you all were too”.

Brazile said. “She’s no different than [former secretary of state] Colin Powell, no different than [former Florida governor] Jeb Bush, no different than anybody else who’s left public office and looked for ways to make an income. . . . What is wrong with a woman having the same earning potential as any man?”

YOU cow and scumhag, none of them claimed to “not be rich” or to have earned their wealth “by dint of hard work”.

Policitcs and speeches/books are not hard work for scumhags/bags like the Clintos.

I remind you that the two charlatans lived off of taxpayers’ housing until in their late 50s.

Now their stupid offspring claims “I tried to make money by working but I figured out how easy it is to make it my parents’ way”.

Instead of doing what a good feminazi would do and dump the dog, she stood by her man! Even put on a pink dress and had an interview about what a good man her Bill was and how he got caught trying to counsel a troubled nutjob intern.

And after Obama, they are going to double down on some idiotic commie, and (hopefully) get their clocks cleaned. I don’t think America is going to buy Obama, mark II. Hillary is a moderate (comparatively speaking; she’s really a commie like the rest of them, but she’s not Stalin, and that’s what the left wants).

I hope America watches Hillary get tossed out. Even if they run Warren, I think a lot of women will be turned off from the whole “we gotta be historic and elect a vagina!” bit once Hillary destructs.

The problem with that is they will decide to run Martin O’Malley – one of the biggest lefties there is.

And the problem for the right with that? Well, he sounds like the guy next door when he gets into his folksy, down the eastern shore of Maryland, waterman drawl going. He looks like a regular guy and talks like a regular guy but just remember he’s from the same crowd (his father-in-law) that has run Maryland into the ground – that crowd started up with Nancy Pelosi’s father.

And, yup, I’ll bet good money you can fool most of the people over and over again.

And yet she graduated from LSU, was a Fellow at Harvard’s Institute of Politics, and is currently an adjunct professor at Georgetown.

Scary, isn’t it?

Affirmative Action has consequences, from a dumbass CNN talking head to a president.

Harry Reid accused Romney of tax evasion for a decade, allegations which proved utterly false…

Let’s be fair, it wasn’t Harry Reid’s fault, it was Harry Reid’s invisible friend that gave him bad information.

Criticizing Donna Brazile is sexist and racist. It’s probably also a hate-crime.

OK, let’s not talk about Hillaryously wealthy people running for President.

How about we talk about who can drive to the White House.

Hillary is so far above the average Bubba, she doesn’t even drive a car… Last pumped gas when?

Does she even give a pooh about the price of gas?

Or how much tires cost because of union protectionism,

Or gas taxes,

Or what’s federal sales taxes on cars,

Or how CAFE standards are raising the cost of the average cars while also making them unsafe,

Or how adding ethanol to gas significantly reduces the miles per tank you get driving,

Or when was the last time she hopped in the family car and drove to the grocery store to buy food for dinner?

She’d know a lot of this if she drove, paid for her own gas, bought and operated her own car — you know like the average person in the US… But no — she gets chauffeured around everywhere she goes and the closest she ever gets to the average person is at a book signing where people pay big bucks to have her sign a book she had some ghost writer scribble together. Yep, she doesn’t even write her own books… Farms that out just like driving…
