“I’M SORRY.... I’M SORRY.... I’M SORRY....” — BUT WHAT IS HILLARY CLINTON REALLY SORRY FOR ? ? ? — YOU TELL ME ! ! !
An appearance of “Ellen...” and an interview with a triple “Apology” all in one day — And that was just in the first day after saying she had nothing to apologize for — You can’t make this stuff up [really you can, but you don’t have to, Hillary and her folks are doing it for you] — In fact, “The Atlantic” magazine pointed out that the reports of Hillary’s non-apologies were the news in the morning of the day that Hillary made her triple-apology
“.... [I]t doesn't matter how many times James Carville goes on TV to mock the press or warn his fellow Democrats against overreacting to Clinton’s troubles: His fellow Democrats are already alarmed — and her [latest] reboot, rather than assuaging their fears, may be making the problem worse” — “The Atlantic” Magazine, David A. Graham
I choose to call this "Re-Boot" — "Das Boot" — OR — an “Iron Coffin” for an "Iron Maiden"
This morning, one of the folks at “The Atlantic” magazine asked this pertinent question: “.... Bumbling through new strategies publicly, reversing herself on an email apology within 24 hours—has the Democrat learned any of the lessons of 2008?” (See “Hillary Clinton's Bungled Reboot” by David A. Graham, 9/9/15, The Atlantic [http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/09/hiilary-reboot/404398/]).
David A. Graham goes on to tell us what he really thinks in his very thoughtful piece, here’s how he starts: “It’s a bad sign when your presidential campaign needs a reboot. It’s a worse sign when your advisers announce that reboot publicly.... That’s exactly where Hillary Clinton finds herself this week. In an attempt to right what is universally seen as a listing campaign, the Democratic frontrunner is attempting to reassure her supporters, donors, and party—as well as prospective supporters and donors—that she has what it takes to run and win a race. But so far, the hamfisted execution of that reboot suggests that she hasn’t learned enough from the debacle of her 2008 campaign, and it’s hard to imagine that events of the last two days will do much to reassure major donors and party leaders.... The precipitating cause of all of this is the continuing drip-drip of Clinton’s State Department email scandal....”
Here’s the point that David Graham and “The Atlantic” magazine wants to drive home in this article, “.... [Hillary Clinton’s] reversal — two almost diametrically opposed answers to the same question in two days — does not suggest a campaign that is confident and has a plan. And the spectacle of Clinton’s aides speaking to the press about what they “want her” to do makes for uncomfortable recollections of the 2008 campaign, in which Clinton aides fought for control of the campaign (and with each other) via the media. Heading into this race, Clinton promised she had learned the lessons of the campaign, including the risk of failing to show emotion on the trail and the danger of allowing chaos among advisers, and wouldn’t make them again.... So far, the record is mixed....” It continues further on with this: “.... Clinton's struggles show the disadvantages of running as an incumbent, her strategy so far. (Clinton’s Wednesday morning speech making the case for President Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement is the latest instance of this strategy.) One is that the campaign can forget that it actually has to win voters over. A second is that the strategy assumes the candidate has already proven her competence. Clinton’s waffling over the emails, and her advisers’ public declaration of a broader change of course, do nothing to project competence....”
David Graham’s article closes with this: “.... [I]t doesn't matter how many times James Carville goes on TV to mock the press or warn his fellow Democrats against overreacting to Clinton’s troubles: His fellow Democrats are already alarmed — and her [latest] reboot, rather than assuaging their fears, may be making the problem worse”
“Reboot” !!! More like “Das Boot” — a German U-boat depth-charged to the bottom, which greatly struggles to get back to its covered pens, only to be destroyed there in a British air raid !!! By the end of the war, they didn’t call them “Iron Coffins” for nothing....
So far, Hillary’s Campaign is looking very much like an “Iron Coffin”.......
Sort of appropriate — an "Iron Coffin" for the "Iron Maiden".......
