Hillary Clinton has no baggage, folks. None whatsoever.

I suppose nobody except me remembers when the mainstream media (NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, CNN, Time magazine, the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Washington know, the Democrats) were shoveling dirt over Newt Gingrich's presidential aspirations in 2011, declaring he had just 'too much baggage.'  That baggage included his 'wither on the vine' comment about Social Security, getting paid for an autobiography and shutting down the government in 1995 (none of that is 'baggage' as far as I am concerned).

When discussing Hillary Clinton's presidential aspirations, has the MSM even ONCE mentioned the word 'baggage' when talking about Mrs. Clinton?  Even one lousy mention of 'baggage?'  No.  And we won't hear that word about her, even though this woman has more 'baggage' than Paris Hilton on a weekend jaunt to Marseilles.

And we are told she has an excellent chance to capture the White House in 2016.  How dumb are the U.S. voters, anyway?

Time for a Hitler analogy (which of course renders this opinion completely crazy and invalid): imagine if you can the theoretical scenario where Hitler had survived his Nazi defeat, and was allowed to go back to Munich to live out his life unmolested by folks seeking vengeance for his past sins (also known as 'baggage').

And Adolph goes back to Munich, gets bored swilling beer in the Hofbrauhaus with his old Putsch buddies and decides to run for the office of chancellor again, currently held by conservative Angela Merkel..  'Vote for Adolph, he's a nice guy!'  That slogan is then printed on every bill board, every bumper sticker and on the side of every bus.  

The German media, and particularly his opponent in the upcoming election, bring up the Holocaust, and the millions of people that Hitler had murdered.  "None of that has any validity, it's just a vast right wing conspiracy to besmirch the reputation of a truly nice guy."

"But Herr Fuhrer, we saw 188 thousand people enter Dachau, but nobody ever seems to have left."  'Nothing to see here,' scoffs Adolf.  "They got lost, and wandered away" dismissing the notion. "And besides, what difference, at this point, does it make?"  (old Schickelgruber sure can turn a phrase).

And so it goes during this hypothetical election campaign, Hitler and his election staff systematically deny that there is any 'baggage' associated with the lovable nice guy, Adolf Hitler.  Also imagine the media concluding "well, ladies and gentlemen.  There you have it.  Herr Hitler declares that he has no skeletons in his closet.  Now let's move on to what a nice guy he is...'

Are Americans that stupid that the will allow the media to ignore the following 'baggage' of Hillary Clinton:

  • Vince Foster's suspcious death and Hillary's suspicious involvement
  • Travelgate
  • Rose Law Firm records
  • Whitewater
  • Cattle futures
  • FBI files on republican adversaries found in the White House
  • Failed takeover of health care system in 1993
  • Heading up controlling hubby's 'Bimbo Eruptions'
  • 'Vast right wing conspiracy'
  • Clocking hubby with a lamp, resulting in bloodshed
  • Continuously trashing those around her and general bad temper
  • Russian 're-set' button
  • "I ain't no ways tarred (tired), I've come too farrrr (far)"
  • Benghazi
  • Email and server scandal
  • Lying about dodging bullets on visit to Kosovo
  • Lying about being named after Sir Edmund Hillary (first to scale Mt. Everest, and who was previously unknown until his feat TWO YEARS after Hillary Clinton was born).
Now THAT'S baggage. Serious, serious BAD, AWFUL baggage. Just the Mt. Everest thing alone, about the least egregious piece of baggage Mrs. Clinton lugs around would have tanked any republican's reputation, such as Dan Quayle's 'baggage' consisting of 'potatoe'. 

Will people just blow all of this off, this huge volume of 'baggage' in the upcoming 2016 presidential election",  just like the citizens of Dachau ignored the thousands of Jews that entered the concentration camp in their little town, and believed what the Nazis told them about it: 'just a protective custody facility, for processing people involved in the justice system.'

I may not know the definition of "is" but I know baggage when I see it.  And Hillary has serious baggage.  Everybody knows it.  Will everybody ignore it?

Vielleicht, vielleicht auch nicht.

No, only ehough voters will ignore it to put her in office (unless they make it so his nibbs can run again).

I trust that the mainstream media (a wholly owned subsidiary of the DNC) will treat Hillary in much the same way that they treated Barack. To expect otherwise it to expect too much.

She's an exceptionally dirty candidate with a filthy past. I'm sure that Fox and the foreign press will report those things.

LL said...

It's a sad day when you get more truth out of frigging Pravda than you do out of the Times conglomerate and the Washington Post.

Z said...

mehr als 'veilleicht', bedaurlicheweise.

Ya, tough to compare even Hillary with Hitler, but your point is well made.
And, of course, we know how hard the media will work directing Americans away from your list. Unless the media decides to crown Warren, then we may hear a bit here and there....

Fredd said...

LL: Doesn't Pravda mean 'truth' in Russian?

Much the same way "Times" means 'lies' in English.

Fredd said...

Z: the media has selected the candidates from both parties for quite awhile, now.

Maybe O'Malley will catch fire, he's such a charismatic stud.

I'm being sarcastic (duh). O'Malley has as much charisma as Ben Stein. The media will certainly anoint Hillary. I'm not sure who they will try and anoint on the GOP side. The easiest one to beat, for sure.

LL said...

The media is trying very very very hard to paint Jeb Bush as the obvious choice. Which is why it's a very bad idea to elect him.

Brighid said...

I do not understand the mind set in this country that thinks Killery would be any kind of good. Oh wait, she's a lawyer, new fence... new fence...

Fredd said...

LL: the Bush's are big government folk, all of 'em. That 'compassionate' part of compassionate conservatism is the part that reaches into our pockets, pulls out gobs of money and compassionately does it out to others.

Fredd said...


Hillary is indeed a bonafide lawyer, but she's not dead yet, so not fence material. I hear she just announced her candidacy, lucky us.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

How can one lift that old bag?

Fredd said...

Odie: perhaps a forklift?

Joe said...

Everybody who currently "counts" (Left-Wing Media) in America will ignore it.

Fredd said...

Joe: if you mean those who 'count' as being in the MSM, and reside in areas other than red states, of course they will completely blow off any bad things anyone has to say about Big H.

LSP said...

Hillary is Satan's Granddaughter and the Media is her handmaid.

I have to agree with LL, there's something badly wrong when Pravda, of all things, is more truthful than our own press.
