Brent Budowsky severely critical of HRC campaign

Another interesting email from liberal pro-HRC journalist Brent Budowsky, sent 1/21/16. Brent is highly critical of how badly HRC’s campaign is going.

Subject: Hillary almost 100% negative

Almost every message being projected outward from her campaign is negative, and a candidate with high distrust ratings should not be doing this, and my phone has been ringing and my email box has been full with Democrats who like me who support her but who, like me, are appalled and losing confidence.

I have never seen anything like this.

This campaign is devoid of positive messages, uplifting appeal, and coherent rationale.

And bluntly, it is getting to the point where every word she utters, there are more young people and first time participants in politics who support Bernie who would not support her in a general election no matter how hard I and others try to persuade them…..and whoever persuaded her that running for Obama’s third term is the way to win a general election is far removed from American politics in 2016, and if they think she can constantly shift her position they do not understand the depth of distrust of her and the damage it does….
and they do not understand in the modern communications environment she cannot be a centrist one day and a liberal the next day because images and impressions are formed and locked in far earlier than in the 1970’s to 1990’s.

This is a campaign that has never had a compelling rationale and now has lost its way into a sea of negativity…..the way for her to be elected is to solve the first problem, and develop some uplifting reason for voters to support her, and not to create a second problem, running a negative campaign without a positive message and vision…..

8 point programs, no matter how worthy, do not create a purpose or a rationale or an inspiration……negative politics from a candidate with high negative ratings attacking a candidate with positive high ratings is the political road to hell.

I strongly suspect she has been sold a bill of goods from Obama consultants who became Hillary consultants, but whoever is the cause, and whatever is the motive, something is horribly and terribly wrong with this campaign…..and when Dan Pfeiffer says on CNN that this is not a change election he has his head nine feet up his ass…..this is a change election, dammit, and Hillary Clinton is running as the candidate of the status quo and that is the worst possible place to be…..and her sycophantic adoration of Obamacare is absurd and totally out of touch with the reality of general election politics….

This campaign is in very, very big trouble and I see zero evidence that Hillary Clinton either understands this, or understands why….

I hope others are being as candid with you, and the Clintons, as I am. I assure you my view expressed here is very widely shared among people who consider themselves her friends…..Brent

  1. I like what he is saying but unfortunately it is proving to be dead wrong. Hillary is running an extremely negative campaign. It’s all about attacking Trump and whipping the country into an anti-Trump frenzy. If the polls are any indication the strategy is working very well.

    • Yeah, and it’s disingenuous to say he “is critical” of how the campaign “is” going. WAS is the correct word. This email is from back in January, before she had even secured the Dem nomination against Bernie. People are going to hold their noses and vote for her. The Trump campaign is circling the drain.

    • None of us have any prior experience with a campaign of a guy who used to publicly joke about his love for women who like men who take the physical initiative towards extramarital genital sex – thereby disqualifying his future self from political office – versus the campaign of a woman who is said to have enabled a rapist to rape again – thereby disqualifying her future self from political office. I think Hillary will win on ground game because the negatives cancel out for so many people. Even Scott Adams, who pretends to understand persuasion, can only say “if this negative holds up, the candidate who experiences this negative will lose.” Nobody knows.

        Right now the only things that mater are out of Trump’s control: HRC having a debilitating stroke or a terrorist event large enough that it cant be down played or passed off as tax protesters.

  6. This is pretty amusing. I’ve been following Democratic politics since the original Clinton campaign, and who the hell is Brent Budowsky? Why should a longtime pro like Podesta care what he thinks? Doesn’t he realize Podesta already knows HRC’s faults, and is just in it for the payday himself? Doesn’t he understand that it’s all about the man-hating, and that HRC (probably rightly)=sees no need for positive messages? And if you’re against ObamaCare, why are you still a democrat anyway? This election is all about domestic policy, and that’s the biggest issue after immigration. So I find this entire e-mail incoherent. I think the guy’s something of a dummy.

      • Arguing that polls are objective is like arguing that the media is objective.

        The Democrat Establishment hates Trump
        The Republican Establishment hates Trump
        The Media hates Trump
        The Corporations hate Trump
        The Universities hate Trump
        The International Organizations hate Trump
        The Nonprofits hate Trump

        But the Polls are unbiased and accurate. I mean, why would they want to ruin their reputations serving the list of clients above?

        Look, people are motivated by fear of loss more than they are by the anticipation of gain. The Trumpers know what they have to lose, so they will turn out in droves. The only losers from the Trumpers are the elite themselves, and there are not enough of them to make a difference. They have to convince the vast number of unconnected non-elites that voting for them is going to make them a connected elite. No one buys that.

        Really, the problem that Democrats face is that all of this sex scandal nonsense is occurring inside celebrity culture, where Kim Kardashian is a model citizen and highly respected, while Bill Cosby is a rapist. Dems are fielding a candidate who looks like every female boss that women have ever had and whom they’ve hated, because her subordinate was younger and prettier than she was. You know the type, ladies. And the last thing they want is hot, slutty women taking all the attention away from the eligible men, and all you have in celebrity culture is hot, slutty women. OMG!! Kim Kardashian got groped!!!

      Here are the facts: Trump won the last debate, 4 of the GOP politicians who had unendorsed him have already come crawling back, and he is back ahead in Rassmussen and the LAT polls. I believe if the election were held today he would win.

      But even if Trump loses, he will just claim that he lost because of fraud and being undermined by the GOPe. His 2020 campaign will begin with his concession speech. The country will be so polarized as to be ungovernable.

        Its pretty clear Trump is under performing the Republican party in nearly every major race. I thought Wisconsin was the exception and Feingold was far ahead but now thats a 2 point race and Hillary is ahead by 6.

        Can anyone think of an example where Trump is doing better than the R candidate lower on the ticket?

      • First of all, the polls *were* wrong in 2012, they *under*estimated Obama’s margin of victory.

        The election comes down to turnout. If Hillary turns out the “Obama Coalition”, she wins. The polls that show her winning are based on her doing just that. The LAT and Rasmussen polls are based on Hillary failing to bring out the Obama coalition and Trump activating traditionally non voting downscale whites.

        I believe LAT and Ras have this one right, but we will see. This isn’t unskewing, it is just that we don’t know what the turnout will be.

        And this is getting tiring to keep explaining: even *if* Trump loses he will refuse to concede he will just blame the media, voter fraud and the GOPe. Polls show that over 70% of Republican voters will agree with him and support him. He will be a stone cold lock to win the nomination in 2020, should he choose to run again.

        You TruCon vermin are living in a complete fantasy world. You think that after Trump loses things are going back to you guys running the show and that just isn’t going to happen.

It’s only going to get worse for him as he doubles down on being his unrestrained self and attacks his accusers with the same khan family/Alicia Machado/Gonzalo Curiel style rhetoric that completely alienates swing voters and causes his poll number to plummet. We have to be seriously worried that he’ll not just destroy the prospect of immigration restrictionism for our lifetimes but loses the congress for the republicans and bring us certain amnesty sometimes in the next few years.

        Mag is correct.

        And by blind luck the Otis-bot has cut and pasted something correct.

        Obama did win because he over-performed his turn out model. His core constituency voted well above the average response rate making a unbeatable force, even though Romney did well on turnout.

        HRC wont naturally equal Obama’s performance. Look to 2014 to see that even when the Democrats distribute lynching flyers and Obama claims “his policies are on the ballot” they cant replicate those turnout levels. You need Obama actually on the ballot to do that.

        People arent going to turn out to vote *for* HIllary; they need something to vote against. And Trump foolishly gives it to them in spades, serving up a bombastic, ignoramus blowhard who attacks military families, judges and chubby housekeepers. And who is easily bait and cant shut his mouth when he is in trouble. Part of what is motivating people to the polls is the chance to be part of a movement to drive a stake in Trump’s heart and watch his concession speech. Why does he make that such enjoyable a vision? No one would glory in a Paul Ryan concession speech they come away thinking “what a nice guy”. With Trump they want to see the pompous millionaire fall in manure.

        To counter this Trump just holds rallies. And since 8000 people turn out, he thinks he must be winning. Really he is going to need 65 million votes and he doesnt have a data base to know who those people are and he hasnt built a ground operation to turn them out.

        So frankly Trump will under perform his poll numbers.

        There is no hope for the Trump campaign. Roger Ailes is the best media brain in the world and even after he joins the campaign Trump engages of weeks of losing press exchanges. So Trump is ignoring all sensible advice at this point.

        Even if Trump loses by blowout, it won’t matter. He will claim fraud and that he was sabotaged by the media and GOPe. Republican voters will overwhelmingly agree with him (polls say about 70% of Republican voters agree with him that the election is rigged for Hillary). This is a different country than that which existed during Nixon-Kennedy and the old rules no longer apply, but you don’t realize that because you are retarded subhuman TruCon scum.

    • An idea I had that perhaps you guys with more media connections could promote is that if after the last debate Trump feels he still needs more attention (entirely possible as the media might simply shut him out for the last three weeks) he could propose a 4th debate. Say the moderators focused on so much tabloid trash that they never got around to issues American public cares about- which is an argument that has the benefit of actual truth since we STILL haven’t seen a single question about immigration policy at a debate. Hillary will object so the key is to invite Jill Stein and Gary Johnson. They’ll accept immediately (you could probably even get them to show up at the press conference). If it is presented at the press conference as a fait accompli with a date, location, and three of the four participants already signed on, Hillary is faced with a lose/lose proposition.

    • Really, it turns that Hispanics are predominantly voting for Trump, and this is in NYC!!!

      I know of a Dominican bodega owner (Spanish for a convenience or grocery store) in Manhattan, and he is voting for Trump, despite selling mostly organic and gluten free products to the nearby gentrifying SWPLs. He thinks Hillary will destroy the country overnight and open the floodgates for all kinds of riff-raff that reminds him of his own people, and like many self-aware Dominicans who strive for the American dream, he wished he was a blanquito.

      And my assertion that Hispanics vote like Guidos (and think like Jews) when it comes to politicians, is a testament to this.

Hispanics vote like Jews in this regard. Where as Guidos vote mostly Republicans regardless of the candidate’s spiel. Hispanics strive for prole values when it comes to the American dream — Blue collar and less adherence to educational credentials.

  13. Even though the election is likely decided at this point, this will be a fascinating campaign to read about for the next 100 years (I mean that). I also think it’ll be a “whom did you vote for?” type question children and grandchildren will ask their parents for the next two generations.

    • We still have 4 weeks to go. That is an eternity given the daily bombs dropping on both sides. Trump has time to gain and lose the lead ten times over between now and election day. Strengthen your resolve and prepare for a wild ride.

    OT, Lion, but you might actually be able to help here. How is complaining about ‘international bankers’ antisemitic? We *are* getting screwed by international bankers! He doesn’t specifically say Jewish ones. I agree some people might think that, but the excess power of the banks really is a huge problem facing our country!

      • I deal with value transference clients with net worth in the millions. When you constantly look at their finances, fiat money are just numbers on the computer screen. $1K seems like a pretty penny.

        For the non-mainstream proles who want to live the good life in America, you have to be subsidized by the gov’t and pay no taxes. Other than that, you’re a slave by doing the bidding for the elites, many of whom, made their wealth in value transference schemes, and they live in liberal centers like NYC, DC and SF. Wealth is only concentrated in these cities. Most of America is an empty husk of a ghost town, with very few jobs, despite the lower costs of living, outside of the elite centers.

      • Why does this liberal hating-conservative talk show host live in San Francisco, one of the most of the liberal regions of America?

        Either he’s a hypocrite or he’s something else that I have alluded in the past. Certain individuals/groups who profess conservatism could never live in a place outside of a liberal center.

        Mark Levin is another one.

      • That’s exactly my point. This is BS. You might have the platform to give the guy a little cover for this. You know, “I’m Jewish and I agree with Trump about global elites. This isn’t a Jewish problem, this is a problem with globalization.”

        If you don’t want alt-right Nazis piling on you, I get that.

      • SFG: why are you so obsessed with the Alt Right’s Jew hatred?

        There are tons of sites on line that attack the global financial elite and nobody sees places like ZeroHedge as a proxy for the Nazis. Nobody regards Front Nationale as a Nazi party despite the fact that they also attack globalist elites. Same with the UKIP.

        It is only Jewish journalists who are accusing Trump of anti semitism and they are doing so at least partially in response to being inundated with nazi Pepe memes for nearly 2 years now.

  17. Michael Savage doesn’t live in San Francisco. He lives in Tiburon, across the GGB in Marin County. And besides, why would his living in a blue county bring his sincerity into question? The whole point of being alt-right, at least for people like Sailer, VDH, Kaus and me, is that leftists ruined our paradise out here. The whole reason for being so angry is that this beautiful place should have been ours, not theirs.

    • I suspect it’s more of a media thing–you do see a few Jews in flyover country. Probably you can’t be near radio stations, etc. if you live in Peoria.
