Hillary Clinton’s book of sour grapes?

From the description at The Hill, this sounds like a book of sour grapes, in which HRC blames everyone and everything else for her loss: James Comey, the Russians, sexism and misogyny.

Even Chuck Schumer is pulling away from this. Seems like he has come to realize that famous political advice from the past, like “it’s the economy, stupid” and “jobs jobs jobs” are still true. A campaign based on climate change, transgender rights and breaking the glass ceiling, isn’t going to inspire anyone to come out to the polls except for SJWs, and there aren’t enough SJWs to make up for the loss of proles.

  1. She’s just writing for the history books, so Schumer’s concerns (winning in the present environment) aren’t relevant to her.

    • Hillary hasn’t given up on the limelight just yet. 99.9% chance she won’t run in 2020, but she hasn’t accepted reality just yet.

      • >>99.9% chance she won’t run in 2020,

        I say at this point, there is a 99% chance that she will run. Sounds crazy but she is crazy. She wants that prize more than anybody wants anything in this world.

        If she keeps her marbles and doesn’t slip into dementia and she portrays robust health, she is running.

      • I appreciate your argument, but I don’t think Hillary will be able to run again, no matter how bad she wants it, and here are my three reasons:

        1. As you alluded to, her health is a major issue. During the campaign she took days and days off, while Trump went from stump to stump. She had a collapse on September 11th of 2016. She also made outrageously stupid statements. Sure, the media covered for her last time, but when you’re 69, you don’t spring back into youth in four years. Her health will be even more of an issue in 2020 if she thinks about running.

        2. An American political norm is that if you were a candidate in one presidential election cycle, you can run again for president. If you were the party’s nominee and lost, though, you don’t get a second chance. The last guy who pulled it off was Nixon in 1960 and 1968, but Nixon was young enough to pull it off, and no one has succeeded in doing that in nearly 50 years. Hillary isn’t young.

        3. No one but her lackeys like her, and I’m sure they just keep their doubts bottled up. She will have a hard time getting back her donors (which for a bland, conventional politician like Hillary are essential) and the only time her voters genuinely pined for her to win was when she lost to Trump. She and Bill Clinton MIGHT be able to keep enough support within the DNC for her. Still, Trump threw water on this Wicked Witch, and I doubt the flying monkeys at the DNC still fear her the same way they used to.

      Don’t be so sure. The current field of Democrats is weak enough that Hillary’s power over the DNC machinery could swing the primaries to her again. If doctor’s can keep her in stasis long enough I’d expect her to try again.

      • Current field of Democrats is great. It is time to dispel with the fiction that the Democrats do not have a strong bench. The Democrats have a very strong bench.

        Gillibrand, Duckworth, Biden or Booker would all be phenomenal candidates.

        Hillary isn’t running again.

      • I think Biden is now too old to run in 2020, but I otherwise agree with Otis’ list. Add Kamala Harris too. I don’t think those candidates could’ve overcome Hillary in 2016, but people are going to want fresh talent in 2020, so Hillary won’t be able to beat them.

        Howard Schultz could probably pull it off. Mark Zuckerberg might too if he focuses on his communication skills and two or three defining issues he’ll focus on.

        Trump can still beat all of these potential nominees in 2020 if the economy is strong and he hasn’t gotten into any new wars in the Middle East. If Oprah Winfrey decides to run, however, he’s toast. It’s not even funny how easily she would win. For all our talk about 4D chess and persuasion, Oprah Winfrey has those skills tenfold over Trump. And unlike Trump, who has also drawn scorn and derision to himself his whole life, everyone you’ll meet has a favorable impression of Oprah.

        Only true in terms of voter appeal. But the will of the voter isn’t a high priority in DNC politics. The DNC is a rigged machine and Hillary still has too many gremlins running the inner gears for an outsider Democrat to dismiss her.

      Interesting that it is sexism and misogyny when she loses to a successful billionaire White man.

      But when a black male nobody with no resume of significance beats her for the 2008 nomination – no sexism and misogyny there?

      How many are going to remember Walter Mondale, Mike Dukakis, or John McCain? I suppose Hillary may get some historical traction based on the dynasty issue.

      In terms of motivation, I would guess that the book was actually written by some ass-kissing sycophants trying to butter her up in hopes of landing a sweet no-show job at the Clinton Foundation.

      • I live in California and Upton Sinclair’s failed run for governor in 1934 as an avowed socialist still gets teary-eyed encomiums from left wing historians. If Hillary wants to be remembered by history she’d be wise to push the sexist, “we wuz robbed” narrative because the people most sympathetic to that version of history will probably be writing the history books that get approved on academic reading lists.

    • I support the ban. But I’m thinking that individuals aren’t so much banned as the behavior. They can still enlist as long as they don’t dress in drag and take hormone injections. Obama had the military paying for sex change surgeries and hormone injections. Needless to say, trannies were using the military as a way to get free elective surgery. Queers were doing a similar thing during DADT. They would join the military to go to medical school and, as soon as they’d become doctors, they’d come out of the closet to get discharged. It really is amazing how skillful these allegedly discriminated groups (ie feminists, minorities, homos, etc) are at looting taxpayers and businesses. Dems are a coalition of grifters.

      • “Needless to say, trannies were using the military as a way to get free elective surgery.”

        That was really the entire purpose of letting them in. If you figure with the requirements for counseling, and hormones, before the surgery,none of those soldiers would have ever deployed. They would have gotten the surgery and gotten out.

  3. How can crooked Hillary blame misogyny when she won the popular vote! There is more justification for Trump to blame misandry for his losing the popular vote.

    Mark Caplan

    July 26, 2017 at 11:20 am

    • Some number of people didn’t vote for her because she is female. Nobody knows what that number is for each state but it’s reasonable to hypothesize that it’s greater than the margin by which she lost in the critical states she lost, so that’s how she can blame misogyny.

      Of course, some people voted in her favor because she is female.

      On balance, I would guess that a man who was equally uncharismatic would have still lost.

  5. This isn’t the 90s. “Jobs Jobs Jobs” isn’t the answer anymore. Trump did not campaign on a Jobs platform, he campaigned on an Anti Liberal platform.

    In any Trump district or state where a Dem attempts to run on a Jobs platform, all their Republican opponent needs to say is “Islam, BLM, immigration” and that will be that.

    Hillary won the popular vote. The Dems current coalition of SWPLs and minorities is a political winner *if* they can hold on to the Romney-Hillary voters gained in 2016. Macron in France and Merkel in Germany have shown the way: social liberalism and economic conservatism. The worst thing that the Dems could do is attempt to become more populist economically because all that will do is scare off centrist whites.

    Otis the Sweaty

    July 26, 2017 at 12:43 pm

  6. I think Democrats can run on climate change, but the problem is that the issue only appeals to SWPLs. Proles and NAMs don’t care about it at all.

    The Democrats actually could run on a formidable agenda if they focused on creating a single-payer healthcare system, a responsible way for reducing student loan debt, and other issues Bernie ran on. Granted, they don’t necessarily need to copy his policy proposals, but they could win back white proles and the white middle class if they addressed those problems with smart ideas.

    The problem, though, is that the Democratic Party is dominated by its rich, globalist donors, and its poor NAM constituencies. The donors wouldn’t benefit from a populist agenda, or even a technocratic one that would lower the cost of medicine and education for Middle America.

    Blacks don’t want cheaper healthcare and education. Because of Medicaid, Affirmative Action, and education grants, healthcare and education is nearly free for them anyway, so why should they want to share the goodies with white proles?

    So instead, the Democrats will continue to try to “resist” the Trump agenda and hope America turns into a minority-majority country the way California is. In which case, they can joy ransacking the country as a single-party state and hand out gibmedats to their donors and constituencies until the whole racket comes crashing down.

  7. Schumer is politically savvy. He was worried that Trump would lead with infrastructure and transcend partisanship.

    Luckily for him, Trump and Paul Ryan are busy working on an agenda no one cares about: Obamacare repeal, more tax cuts, transgender issues, etc. If Trump does get to infrastructure it’ll be some weird public-private scheme with toll roads that Americans don’t really want.

  8. Here’s a reason why the run in the mill liberal is a delusional loser, because they are absolutely appaling when it comes to math:

    The NYC’s Liberal educational establishment blames failing NYC’s public schools on racial segregation, when more than 67% of the schools are black and Latino, and Whites comprise only less than 15% of the student population.

    http://nypost.com/2017/01/05/the-trouble-with-desegregating-new-yorks-schools/

    If you add the numbers, there are simply not enough White kids to integrate with the black and Hispanic kids in the schools to lessen the inequality. The only public schools that have a White majority are in the outlying prole area of Staten Island and in the outlying wealthy semi-island of Belle Harbor, Queens, and they aren’t any city-wide forced busing or forced integregation in place, simply because again, there aren’t enough White kids in the public schools to make this happen.

    July 26, 2017 at 2:52 pm

    • The only thing that integration does is chase out the productive workers. People won’t stay in a city where their children are going to be racially abused.

    • White liberals aren’t losers. They dominate the universities, the prestige press, nonprofits, and museums. Conservatives keep talking about Western civilization but all the high arts such as opera, ballet, literary reviews, and such are dominated by liberals. Liberals have such power that the country moves to the left even as the entire government is controlled by the Republican party.

      Conservatives are the losers in USA society. We have to rely on a crazy mediocrity like Trump because we have no one better. On cultural issues we sit on the sidelines for the opportunity to point out the hypocrisy and contradictions of the liberal ascendancy. Meanwhile liberals are slowly but surely molding the country to their vision.

      • I agree. I know many crazy conspiracy types believe that the media is getting orders from the top down to basically be a machine that promotes SJWism. However, I think that most people who get into media are mentally different than someone who gets into a technology career. I just think that being in media/arts/entertainment draws in human beings who are more accepting of others.

        I think while SJWism is really bad for the USA, SJW types are a reason why the USA and Europe have been successful. They are people of high empathy and are a reason that Western Europe and the USA did so well as societies. Although their politics are destructive to these nations, they themselves are important to the country.

        Yup

    • .”For every SJW there are 10 proles”.

      A lot millennial proles who voted for Bernie Sanders, are liberal, middle class, but not full blown SJWs. Most NAMs did not vote for Bernie Sanders.

      The millennial proles who voted for Trump were either disenfranchised or nazi types.

      You’ll see, this trend shows most young White Americans are inadvertently voting for a White identity, the kind of voting patterns you find in Europe, where unlike the US, NAMs are not part of the equation. Without NAMs, the US would be like Canada and much of Europe.
