Collapse of the Clinton Dynasty

On Tucker tonight the theme is the collapse of the Clinton Dynasty. At the beginning they showed several clips of both Bill and Hillary through the years making several semi notable statements. Looking back, I think Bill, Monica not withstanding was by far the more intelligent of the two. If the Clinton Dynasty has indeed collapsed or is collapsing, it's by far more her fault than Bills. I don't mean to sound like a sexist or anything, but if it was only Bill in the limelight, they would still have lots of power within the Democrat party. Hillary is clearly the one who screwed them up. That woman isn't near as brilliant as some people put her up to be.
Anyway, Tucker's got several guest both Democrat and Republican hashing and rehashing all of it and a lot of Democrats are pissed at the Clintons for muffing the whole party up. Check it out!

    It doesn't help that they're both older than dirt. Regardless of what happens over Uranium One and all of their other shady deals, their days on this earth are coming to an end. I don't think that Chelsea has the drive or ambition exhibited by her parents.

    I am holding out very little hope that Hillary's scandals will do her in, but I think she's running out of gas and that the democratic party knows it. Their party no longer fears them as it did prior to last year's election.

    Bill is the "likeable" one......Hillary is not. That makes a big difference.

    Yeah a man could sit down with Bill have a beer and smoke a cigar. I don't think I would have the patience to sit and listen to her B.S.though. Just stay up wind of his cigar smoke, no telling where that stogie has been.

    In my mind he was the charisma and she was the drive. If it was up to him I think Bill would have been content to enjoy his retirement and the financial perks in entailed. Hillary was the one who couldn't let go of the drive for power and it showed and frankly was pretty ugly.

    I think the 2016 election marked the end of two major dynasties with the Clintons and Bushes and if you expand a few more years with the death of teddy we saw the end of the Kennedys too.

    I can't help but think that her thirst for power is too great and that she'll eventually resurface and run for some kind of office.

    It ain't looking good for the Clintons. I'm willing to give Bill a mulligan on the Lewinski ****, I mean I'd rather have a **** than a jab in the eye with a sharp stick any day of the week, but not Paula Jones and Juanita Brodrick and the others. Those are crimes.

    But Hillary? Vote Your Plumbing Hillary? No way. I hope she realizes she's done. As for Chelsea, it is what it is. Maybe she has some great ideas, who knows since she's been an instrument of her mother. She has to make her own case from ground zero since she can't live on her mom's reputation.

    Completely agree. The best comment I heard was "Would you rather have Bill and Monica working on foreign policy together?"

    I think the big problem with dealing with the Clintons was that people wanted to like them, that's how they got their foot in the door. That worked great, as long as Bill was doing the talking. But after Bill left the White House she horned her way into the lime light and it's been a down hill spiral for them every since.

    She got by as senator for New York because those people are mostly such indoctrinated Democrats that few of them even question their political leaders as long as they're giving out the goodies and making life artificially nice for them.

    Then she was Sec State and we all know how that turned out. However, she was in cahoots with the rest of the administration which had a terrible track record in foreign policy issues and it was getting worse all the time. This sheltered her from a lot of the blame for awhile.

    So when our Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were murdered in the Libyan Embassy, it looked like business as usual, even with the story that this was a protest of a video about the Profit Mohammad, many people took that story hook, line and sinker, and at first Hillary came out of it without a hitch.

    What many people weren't thinking about was that Obama had made the proclamation sometime before that the War on Terror was over. This was in preparation for his second run at the Presidency in 2012 and the fact that it was still going on and and about to kick into overdrive had to be supressed until after the 2012 election.

    However, as all the facts began to surface many in the know saw all the BS and Hillary began to be questioned about her claims that it was a protest over a video. That's when her popularity really began to plummet.

    Then all the crap during the presidential campaign left her with a lot of pie on her face. (Does Deplorables ring a bell?) The election results were the tell tale evidence.

    Now she goes around the country digging her hole deeper by coming up every month, it seems, with a different reason as to why she lost the election.

    However, as several historic events will prove, many Americans have a short, if any memory at all. So don't be surprised if down the road you see her in a tight race for something. If nothing else, she is resilient, you gotta give her that.
