Jesus, do these people have any self-respect? Targeted for political death and they grovel like abused lovers. Just pathetic.
Let’s start with the stooge who replaced her at State:
“Secretary Kerry and former Secretary Clinton share a long friendship,” Kerry spokesman Alec Gerlach told The Hill in an email. “Secretary Clinton’s advice and guidance were both generous and insightful as he transitioned into his role as Secretary of State, and they’ve continued to partner together, most recently at Georgetown University promoting the rights of Afghan women, an effort started by Secretary Clinton and supported by Secretary Kerry.”
How are those Afghan women doing these days, Lurch?
Rep. Rob Andrews (D-N.J.), another traitor in the Clinton campaign’s world, dismissed the “hit list” story as an attempt to undermine a future Clinton 2016 bid. A superdelegate in 2008, Andrews called on Democrats to unite behind Obama even while remaining nominally in the tank for the former first lady.
“This sounds to me like another chapter in the campaign to attack Secretary Clinton in advance of the 2016 campaign,” he told The Hill in a statement. “I have never had anything but the most positive interactions with both Secretary Clinton and President Clinton, and I will fully and enthusiastically support Secretary Clinton if, as I hope, she is a candidate for President in 2016.”
Translation: I hate your guts but prefer not to visit Fort Marcy Park rolled up in a carpet.
Likewise, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) said Monday on MSNBC that he hoped Clinton will run in 2016, and would support her in a bid.
As chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2008, Van Hollen released a statement congratulating Obama before Clinton had conceded, but remained neutral through their bitter battle. He expressed bewilderment on Monday at earning the list’s worst ranking.
“I didn’t get involved in the primary — the Democratic primary that year. I was focused on supporting all our candidates and trying to make sure that whoever emerged as the presidential nominee for the Democrats would support our efforts,” Van Hollen said.
“So if this is true, and again, I have just read the reports, it’s a mystery to me,” he continued, “and I’d be interested in hearing what the basis of it is — would be.”
Homina homina. I will do whatever you tell me to. Please back off.
Rep. Lois Capps (D-Calif.), another lawmaker who earned the Clintons’ ire by backing Obama, also rushed to praise her on Monday. Capps had endorsed Obama at the end of April in 2008, even though Bill Clinton had eulogized her husband and helped her win his seat in Congress.
“I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for both Secretary Clinton and President Clinton. Secretary Clinton has been a true leader both at home and globally. Her work has directly improved countless lives and her dedication to public service is inspiring,” Capps said in a statement to The Hill.
She read that hostage note exactly how Hillary wrote it for her.
Can you imagine the things these same people would be saying if a Republican had been accused of having a hit list? Pitiful stuff.
