Hillary on the brink of collapse

http://nypost.com/2015/04/25/hillary-on-the-brink-of-collapse/
A passage from Ernest  Hemingway fits the moment. In “The Sun Also  Rises,” one character asks,  “How did you go bankrupt?” and another responds: “Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly.”

The exchange captures Hillary Clinton’s red alert. She’s been going politically bankrupt for a long time, and now faces the prospect of sudden collapse.

If she’s got a winning defense, she better be quick about it. The ghosts of scandals past are gaining on her and time is not on her side.

The compelling claims that she and Bill Clinton sold favors while she was secretary of state for tens of millions of dollars for themselves and their foundation don’t need to meet the legal standard for bribery. She’s on political trial in a country where Clinton Fatigue alone could be a fatal verdict.

I can only quote 4 paragraphs but the article is a great read. It is worth your time clicking the link.

1. "G.O.P. Chairman Warns Against Hatred for Hillary Peaking Too Soon"

G.O.P. Chairman Warns Against Hatred for Hillary Peaking Too Soon

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an urgent memo to the field of G.O.P. Presidential candidates, the Republican National Committee chairman, Reince Priebus, praised them for their relentless personal attacks on Hillary Clinton, but warned that their hatred for the former Secretary of State might be “peaking too early.”

Priebus called the candidates’ ongoing evisceration of Clinton “magnificent,” but expressed his concern that “no human beings, even an impressive group like yourselves, could possibly sustain such a high intensity of throbbing hatred for an entire year and a half.”

“Remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint,” he wrote. “You need to leave some hate in the tank.”

In the conclusion of his memo, Priebus advised the candidates to take an occasional day off from hating Clinton so that they could “return to despising her with renewed freshness and vigor.”

Responding to the R.N.C. directive, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said that he understood Priebus’s concerns, but assured him that, at the end of the day, they were groundless. “Anyone who doesn’t think I’m capable of spewing an infinite stream of vitriol and bile doesn’t know what I’m made of,” he said, pointing with pride to his long record of hating President Obama.

You need to take a day off every now and then from declaring Hillary is dead; we'll become immune when you do this several times per day.

4. There is ZERO CHANCE Hillary loses the presidency. None.

Her husband cigar-doinked an intern, perjured himself about it, pretended to not know what the word "is" meant, and came out of all of that more popular than ever. You think those nutbags will hold anything against his wife? Good luck.

6. The mainstream media died the day Dan Rather was character assassinated

and message-
Hillary don't need the far left extremists and actually, will win bigger with the voters on all sides the more the extremists whine (extremists never would vote for the party anyhow, those are the Ron Paul dynasty fans,
and the libertarian fans, and the Jill Stein fans.)

Guess this is going to be 18 months of back/forth/back/forth/back/forth

32. The Single Qualifying Credential

Liberals will vote for Kiliary for the same reason they voted for Obama, twice. It was simply time for a black to be president. Kiliary supporters will now say it is time for a vagina to be president. That will be the single qualifying credential and anyone opposed will be accused of misogyny, never mind the facts of the scandals and corruption that constantly swirl around the Clintons. How sad for our country.

because she has no competition. But, yeah, it does seem that her popularity is slipping.

"jumped in too soon" in order to scare away any competition. After all, she's entitled. Which democrat has the courage to deny her that entitlement?

That is a no-no. You can not do political stuff at government sites and especially not during working hours. You can not even use the phones for political stuff. Karl Rove did that also

Filegate, Benghazi and Emails: Three made-up scandals that had no real gravity, thus being light and fluffy enough to be usable as lifering material.

Bwahahaha! Hillary is gonna suck for several real and substantive reasons, but the GOP would never bring those up because face it -- they consider those flaws "features" and not "bugs."
