The left’s pro-Hillary message is beginning to crumble as they witness the slow implosion of the Hillary Clinton campaign. With the former First Lady and Secretary of State the focus of no fewer than four federal investigations, Clinton continues to struggle in the polls as she affirms the worst suspicions of the right and the worst fears of the left…
In short, Hillary’s a crook and it is becoming readily apparent even to the most devoted of liberal followers.
The first liberal rag to throw in the towel for Hillary is Salon. While the continuation of the lefty publication has rested entirely upon the purely shocking commitment to far-left politics and disregard for American culture, Salon labors on as a mere curiosity as readers read not to gather news, to hear the shocking ravings of the left.
Think: Howard Stern, but with inflammatory and hateful rhetoric substituted for talks of sex and gross-out humor.
Noting that Bernie Sanders now leads Clinton in a national poll conducted by NBC and the Wall Street Journal, Salon has declared the race dead for Clinton who they allege cannot win and even if she could, the point is moot because she would be indicted.
Bernie Sanders is the only Democratic candidate capable of winning the White House in 2016. Please name the last person to win the presidency alongside an ongoing FBI investigation, negative favorability ratings, questions about character linked to continual flip-flops, a dubious money trail of donors, and the genuine contempt of the rival political party. In reality, Clinton is a liability to Democrats, and certainly not the person capable of ensuring liberal Supreme Court nominees and President Obama’s legacy.
Unbelievably, this analysis is spot-on. Whether Democrats want to admit it or not, Hillary is unelectable and those who protest sound more like the ramblings of Titanic’s engineers in its final hours asserting, “But this ship can’t sink!”
The rest of the piece details how Bernie Sanders and his radical rhetoric is the saving grace of the left. While Sanders will always play-well with the diehard socialist crowd, that crowd would have voted for any candidate with a “D” by their name.
Further, the younger crowd, to which Sanders’ rhetoric plays, doesn’t vote. 2008 was an outlier and there is nothing exciting about voting-in a crusty white socialist. The prospect of the first biracial president, however, got 20-somethings off the couch.
The rest of the Salon piece is wishful thinking and a cherry-picked assortment of pie-in-the-sky polls.
Still, the analysis is correct insofar as pitting Hillary against any of the top-tier Republican candidates would be disastrous as she appears committed to making wrong moves, unwilling to focus her messaging, unwilling to develop a tangible, articulable platform and endures a remarkably shady reputation which, even if she remains unindicted, will continue to persist and rob her of any sense of legitimacy.
What’s only left is for more liberal rags to jump ship and for Hillary to suspend her campaign and dissolve the political partnership she has had with Bill for decades now that the “happy couple” narrative is no longer needed.
