R. Emmett Tyrell, Jr. says in his Washington Times opinion piece that he has been writing about the Clintons for more two decades running. Tyler says ever since they came to national attention, the Clintons have done very little for the Democratic party except to enrich themselves.
The author also says that the Democratic Party is so clueless about the whole Clinton devastating effect on the party, that they are not alarmed or worried even when they lost about 1,000 seats around the country. When their candidate Hillary lost humiliatingly to an opponent who has never run for a public office in all of his 70 years, the Democrats still could not get a grip and realize that it’s a wake-up call. Instead, they blamed the loss to the Russians.
Tyrell categorically says that if the Democrats if they do not get rid of the incorrigible Clintons soon, “there may be no Democratic Party left to abandon in 2020. Tyrell laments the fact that if only they took his writings seriously as early as 1996, then they may have held on to their dominant party status.
Tyrell sees a glimmer of hope, though with Donna Brazile, who has written a provocative book. “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-Ins and the Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House.” Nothing she says in the book is new for Tyrell or nothing he has not written before. But for the blind followers of the party, they will be shaken with the revelations, coming as they do from a member of no less than party hierarchy.
Some of the explosive disclosures in the book include the revelation that President Obama left the party bankrupt. Also, the fact that the Clintons are so deceitful that they took over the Democratic National Committee while in control of Hillary’s campaign. That’s way before Hillary supposedly won the nomination from good, old Bernie Sanders. It was all a charade.
Brazile, the Clintons’ operator since Bill’s Arkansas days, writes explosively in her book about the agreement, “specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raise.”
Brazile also says that Clinton’s campaign “has the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.” She says that was not illegal, but surely unethical.
Thing is the Clintons have been going about their crooked ways since Bill’s days in Arkansas, and their greed for campaign money has always been “healthy”. They also do not change the sense of entitlement, even when they lose big. Tyrell says the Clintons have run the 2016 campaign the same way they did the 2008 presidential ambitions of Hilary, and in both instances, they lost to beginners. Ironically, their supporters kept harping on what a brilliant, qualified, competent candidate Hillary is. Bill even called his wife a genius.
How can one be a genius when she loses what she thinks is already a won election, and lose her presidential hopes, not once but twice at that?
Perhaps the Democratic Party should celebrate if and when the Clintons make good on their promise to finally retire from it all so that they can even start to think of winning again. But with the Clintons, there’s no telling, really, if they’re capable of saying the truth. Remember, there’s still Chelsea whom they might force to join the political fray, and try to fulfill what her mother miserably failed at.
Always, beware of the crooked Clintons.
