Another Clinton of no substance or accomplishments hits the campaign trail

posted at 10:41 am on January 13, 2016 by Jazz Shaw

Guess who showed up on the campaign trail ready to do battle this week? Spoiler alert… it was Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea. This wasn’t some sort of charity event for the Clinton Foundation or a family reunion, but three full fledged campaign events in the state of New Hampshire where her mother is currently struggling in the polls. (WMUR)

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton held events in Concord, Manchester and Portsmouth.

While visiting Clinton headquarters in Salem, she mentioned the issues that are most important to her this election, including a woman’s right to choose, the chance for everyone to go to college and early childhood education — topics, she said, that are motivated by the fact that she is a mother now herself.

Well isn’t that nice. We should also stress that she wasn’t just visiting with the natives to talk up her mom. She was on the attack, taking on both Bernie Sanders and pretty much the entire GOP. (CBS News)

“I never thought we would be arguing about the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, in the Democratic primary,” Clinton told Democrats in Manchester, one of three stops she made during her swing.

She said Sanders would “dismantle” Obamacare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and Medicare — along with private insurance programs…

“She also, unlike Sen. Sanders, has articulated how she’s going to pay for that proposal,” Chelsea Clinton said of Hillary Clinton’s plan.

“Currently, there’s a $19 trillion gap, give or take, between what Sen. Sanders has proposed and how he’s articulated paying for those proposals,” Clinton said. “So that, to me, is troubling.”

I’m taking care to point out not only what Chelsea is saying, but who she is saying it about, and that’s for a reason. I’ve written virtually nothing about the woman for longer than I can remember because, with a few notable exceptions, Chelsea Clinton has stayed out of direct combat in politics. Sure, she’s done all sorts of things for the Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Foundation, but that’s ostensibly charity work. (Even though it obviously plays into her parents’ ongoing political activity.) As long as she mostly stuck to those types of activities and raised her family in New York, I was fine with treating her in accordance with the usual rules as they apply to politicians’ children and other relatives. Hands off. It’s no fault of hers who she was born to and she’s entitled to her privacy and the right to live her own life.

Now, however, the worm has turned. If she’s going to go out, put on the gloves and start taking shots then she has placed herself on the playing field in our American Game of Thrones. And like any other surrogate out there making the case for a candidate or policy, she is open to the same scrutiny as every other Democrat spokesperson on the trail. What do they bring to the table? What is their background which lends credence to their advocacy? In the case of Chelsea Clinton it’s an easy question to answer: nothing. A big, fat zero. Chelsea Clinton is a young woman of privilege with little or no accomplishments to her credit and no real substance to champion any cause. After high school she gained admission to a prestigious university (Stanford) which may well not have even given her a second look had her surname been anything else. She’s gotten a series of very well paying “jobs” in the media and with her parents’ foundation, none of which would have been possible without the strong arm of her mother and father. She had the world handed to her on a silver platter and really hasn’t had to work for a thing in her entire life. And now she wants to lecture all of the “hard working people” of America.

She did manage to hit some of her own strengths, however, when she talked about one of her mother’s primary qualifications to be president. It turns out that Hillary Clinton can sing Wheels on the Bus with the best of them.

I’d have been happy to continue to ignore Chelsea Clinton for the rest of her life if she’d stayed in her lane. But now she’s decided to dive into our pool at full speed. In the immortal words of John McClane, welcome to the party, pal.

..masterful, Jazz. Somewhere, up in heaven, your mom is smiling down on you!

I’m going think better of Jazz’s mom and assume she’d be disappointed.
Not angry…just disappointed.

Hey. I thought this was gonna be a story about Chelsea Clinton. Why did you post a picture of Paula Jones to illustrate it on the homepage?

FlameWarrior on January 13, 2016 at 11:57 AM

Jazz,
Tell me, how are you not just being a di*k with that?
Have you committed to hating Chelsea Clinton’s daughter as well?

verbaluce on January 13, 2016 at 11:24 AM

Lightness of words, your blatant hypocrisy is showing yet again.

You pretend to be worried about ill will and hatred, by calling Jazz a purposefully derogatory name and then accuse him of hatred because he has an opinion that is different than yours? But you believe yourself to be the adult in the room, the enlightened one. Your hypocrisy is endless.

Neitherleftorright on January 13, 2016 at 11:57 AM

The Clintons using Chelsea is akin to the mafia don grooming junior to take over the “family business.” That isn’t the only thing the Clinton machine has in common with the mafia.

jon1979 on January 13, 2016 at 11:35 AM

Once the BO family finds out hey have to pay for the lavish life style I fully expect MO to run for Congress and when old enough the daughters. All of this will be to prepare them for a POTUS run. Then again maybe not. Any or all of them could be in Congress for life and it has it’s own perks. Another possibility is that BO managers to get the SG position at the UN and they will be all set. It would also be the first time a SG has been from a country that is a permanent member of the Security Council which I thought was against the rules, but I researched it and it seems it is not. At least it will be historic. Just imagine what secrets BO can bring to the UN. He would also get SS protection which will be a historic first for an SG.

Clearly you do not. You called him a derogatory name. That is not pointing out he is behaving badly, that is doing exactly what you FEEL that is being done to Chelsea. You then are implying that he hates Chelsea and Hillary. Hate? You know this how?

You’re such a hypocrite you can’t even stop being hypocritical in your reply to me. You simply try to deflect your glaring hypocrisy.

Oh and yes I nearly always place you on the defensive because of your offensiveness and your hypocritical way of pretentiously speaking to those with whom you disagree, as if you are on some superior plane.

Up to a point I’d give chelsea clinton a pass because she was “raised” by two mentally bent corrupt individuals, but at some point one has to take responsibility for themselves, their own mind and their own actions.

This bytch is scum that doesn’t fall far from either tree she was born of. Nothing she says or does has an ounce of value to anything, not even the liberal socialist progressive side of the equation. She’s a complete ZERO.

The girl who kept quiet while the man who’d created that video was railroaded and sent to prison.
The girl who kept quiet while her mother lied to those families.
The girl who kept quiet while the administration continued to spew that lie to the American people.
