Steve M. at No More Mister Nice Blog:

LARGE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY WOULD HAVE PREFERRED A HILLARY PRESIDENCY PROBABLY WOULD HAVE HATED A HILLARY PRESIDENCY

[…]

Republicans and teabaggers think she would have done a better job. But if she’d actually become president and done a better job — that is, if she’d managed the economic crisis better — it would have been by doing things they absolutely despise, like stimulating the economy more effectively, fighting for more mortgage relief (hear Rick Santelli howl!), and reining in Wall Streeters. Which means they’d hate her now. (Of course, it’s really hard to imagine Republicans and Blue Dogs allowing her to do much in this direction.)

Or, needless to say, the wife of the master triangulator might have deferred to the resurgent right, wholly or partly. Which means we’d have about the level of neo-Hooverism we have now, or (and I’m not ruling this out) a lot more. Which, popularity-wise, would have made her either just like Barack Obama or just like Scott Walker.

So she’s popular only because it’s a fantasy. The reality would have been very different.


Denial isn’t a river in Egypt.

It’s hard enough for Obots to admit they were wrong about Obama, but it’s even harder for them to admit they were wrong about Hillary too.

They like to claim “No one could have foreseen” but they are WRONG. We did. We told them so.

Just out of curiosity I thought I find out what Steve M had to say back in the day:

2/29/08:

Hillary Clinton suggesting that Al-Qaeda was more likely to attack if Obama is president? Bill Clinton describing Obama’s assertion that he’s consistently opposed the Iraq War as a “fairytale” and comparing Obama to Jesse Jackson? Surrogates attacking Obama’s youthful drug use? Campaign staffers circulating madrassa e-mails? A speaker at a Clinton campaign appearance calling Obama supporters “latte-drinking, Prius-driving, Birkenstock-wearing, trust fund babies”?

You can say the Clinton campaign got nasty or you can say that politics ain’t beanbag and Obama can’t complain if the going got rough. But Nagourney is actually arguing that the going didn’t get rough — that Obama has been treated with kid gloves. That’s absurd.

    Is that a bad thing?

    Some Republicans may have hated a Hillary presidency, but they would have done their hating while still employed, while still living in the home they bought, and while enjoying their universal healthcare.

      ERA finally ratified by the last 3 or 4 states needed to pass. The deep South state step up the plate and sign on,after Pres. Clinton,
      ( former First Lady of Arkansas , and most admired politician in the whole entire world) urged it. The oceans stopped rising and Iraq war is truly ended with Peace accords signed. Then she would run for re-election.

    the last I heard the Hillary supporters and the tea partiers were American citizens. If backtrack keeps failing like he is doing now, they as well as the obots will be in a world of hurt. Most people unless they are into S&M do not wish to hurt. Maybe the obots have a different mind set.

    unemployment needs to start in DC asap

    Notice after he says a large percentage of people who would have preferred a Hillary presidency would have actually hated it, he talks about Republicans and wall streeters, etc. Notice how he doesn’t mention over 1/2 of the Democratic party who actually voted for her and obviously would have preferred her.

    So can I assume he actually thinks the only people who would have preferred her, the majority of the Democratic party membership in ’07, ’08, are Republicans?

    You know Steve M., you can think better and see better too if you pull your head out of your ass.

    Tipped off by HotAir. Dunno if this is true, but if so, why am I not surprised?

    In an excerpt obtained by The Post, a female senior aide to President Obama called the White House a hostile environment for women.

    “This place would be in court for a hostile workplace,” former White House communications director Anita Dunn is quoted as saying. “Because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.”

    —–

    It says that women occupied many of the West Wing’s senior positions, but felt outgunned and outmaneuvered by male colleagues such as former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Summers.

    “I felt like a piece of meat,” Christina Romer, former head of the Council of Economic Advisers, said of one meeting in which Suskind writes she was “boxed out” by Summers.

    Dunn told Suskind that the problems began during the 2008 campaign. At one point she was viewing a television ad with other campaign officials and was shocked to see no women in the spot.

    “There isn’t a single woman in this ad,” Dunn said. “I was dumbfounded. It wasn’t like they were being deliberately sexist. It’s just there was no one offering a female perspective.”

    The ad was later reshot, with women included.

    “The president has a real woman problem,” an unnamed high-ranking female official told Suskind. “ The idea of the boys’ club being just Larry and Rahm isn’t really fair. He [Obama] was just as responsible himself.”

    Used to think Obots needed to go back to school and learn something. These days I think the hardcore Obots need to see shrinks.
