Hillary Hating Is Bipartisan

Hanna Rosin at the Atlantic:

Among the Hillary Haters
Can a new, professionalized generation of scandalmongers uncover more dirt on the Clintons—without triggering a backlash?

“I don’t hate the Clintons,” says R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., the founder and longtime editor of The American Spectator and the father of … let’s call it “Clinton disdain.” “I have always seen them as comic figures.” Tyrrell’s particular brand of fun began when, in 1993, he sent a reporter to dig through the Clintons’ tax returns and discovered that they had listed donations of Bill’s old underwear as a tax write-off, valued at $1 each. But as the couple settled into the White House, the allegations grew darker. Later that year, Tyrrell and some cronies hatched the “Arkansas Project,” a $2.4 million effort, financed by the right-wing philanthropist Richard Mellon Scaife, to delve deeper into the Clintons’ past. Whitewater, Troopergate, and the death of Vince Foster were merely the highlights. Over the years, Tyrrell wrote dozens of columns and four books filled with murky Clintoniana. He accused the couple of abusing staff and benefiting from a cocaine-smuggling operation run out of an Arkansas airport. He claimed that Bill had bought women string bikinis in Rio and perfume in Sydney. Tyrrell’s sources were often described merely as “sources” or “sources familiar with the questioning.” But even Tyrrell had his limits. He grew indignant when he thought that Terry McAuliffe, a close friend of the Clintons and now the governor of Virginia, had accused him of calling the president a murderer. A complete falsehood! In fact, Tyrrell had merely quoted The Economist, which had noted a “peculiar pattern of suicides and violence” surrounding “people connected to the Clintons.”


When the 2016 presidential campaign was just a glimmer in the distance, at least a dozen conservative organizations had already dedicated themselves to Hillary Clinton’s defeat. They are a combination of opposition-research shops, media outlets, and grass-roots activist groups. A couple have stationed staff in Little Rock to rifle through files in search of something new—or even something old that can be framed in a newly relevant way.

In the 1990s, Hillary Clinton famously complained about the “vast right-wing conspiracy” that was out to get her and Bill. But at the time it was really more a small, ragtag band of conspiracy-minded compatriots, albeit very noisy ones. Tyrrell’s Spectator relied largely on a young investigative journalist named David Brock, who in 1997 would recant much of his reporting in an Esquire piece, “Confessions of a Right-Wing Hit Man,” and a subsequent book, Blinded by the Right. (In one of the many odd twists since that era, Brock now runs a pro-Clinton super PAC.) Scaife, the Arkansas Project’s backer, paid a handful of reporters, notable among them Christopher Ruddy, to write articles and books about the Clintons that the mainstream press mostly regarded with skepticism. Other scandalmongers depended largely on the Drudge Report to promote stories, hoping that the site would help them get picked up by legitimate news outlets. Fox News was then still a fledgling network, and the many conservative Web sites that are now familiar didn’t exist. The movement was small, outside the Republican mainstream, and animated by a sense of “us against the world,” recalls Brock, “which made the crusade seem more personal.”

If she runs for president in 2016—as all evidence suggests she will—Hillary Clinton will face something more like a vast right-wing conglomerate. This time around, the groups will be well funded, solidly professional, and thoroughly integrated into the party establishment. America Rising, which employs more than 50 people, is a new opposition-research group that’s preparing a Clinton strategy for the Republicans far in advance of the campaign. It sends “trackers” with portable video cameras to all her events, in hopes of catching a gaffe, and uses polling and focus-group research to determine ways to define her before she has a chance, once again, to define herself. The Free Beacon has its own research division and a “war room” for what it calls “combat journalism”—most of it, recently, directed at Clinton. The small but busy Stop Hillary PAC is putting together a “grass-roots coalition” that aims (as its name suggests) to ensure “Hillary Clinton never becomes president.” Citizens United, the group that won the Supreme Court case allowing a flood of new campaign spending, is producing a movie about Clinton’s performance as secretary of state, focusing on whether she did enough to protect the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, where militants killed ​the U.S. ​ambassador to Libya and ​three other Americans in 2012. Americans for Prosperity, a group funded by the Koch brothers, turned its conference last August into a forum for a wide range of Hillary bashing.

I’m not gonna dispute any of the factual assertions you see above, but considering what the Democrats did to Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney (and are trying to do to Scott Walker) they are in no position to complain about slinging mud.

My gripe about this article is that is ignores the most virulent and nasty Hillary Haters – the Vile Progs who supported Barack Obama and moved heaven and earth to give him the nomination in 2008. This includes the media, the Democrat establishment and most of the lefty blogosphere.

The original support for Obama had it’s roots in Hillary Hate. Both Barack Obama and John Edwards vied for the ABC (Anybody But Clinton) vote in the primary, and when Edwards faltered most of his supporters went over to Obama.

Now they are trying to push Elizabeth Warren into challenging Hillary. They would like nothing better than to deny her the nomination again.

One difference this time – Hillary won’t have as many supporters as she did in 2008.

    I gave up sobriety and celibacy for Lent, but so far the no celibacy thing is not working out so well.

  2. driguana says:

    Giving up anything these days is very difficult since there is so little to actually give up! But for this Lenten season, I’m giving up “isms”….no more “isms” until after Lent. In the meantime, I pray we can all just be people….regular people, despite the “isms”.

    • DeniseVB says:

      A local columnist asked her FB friends to let her know what we’re giving up for Lent for a “light hearted” article. I replied “Lent”. I got put under her “smart aleck” commenters.

  3. DeniseVB says:

    That photo of cardboard Hillary getting groped by Obama’s flunkies never gets old. It’s exactly what this administration is doing to the rest of us 😛

  4. DeniseVB says:

    From Axelrod’s book …


    Do you remember when Hillary and Obama flew to Edwards’ NC home to woo him after he dropped out ? I always wondered what that was about, but he did end up endorsing Obama. Shortly thereafter his slimey affair was exposed and that was the end of that.

  5. piper says:

    Went and had my taxes done yesterday. First time ever I had to show my insurance card otherwise there would have been a penalty which they would have needed to report to the IRS. Several of their clients were caught in this obamacare fiasco.

  6. votermom says:

    It’s a record cold day today and I am almost out of milk & eggs.
    I’d wait to go buy them but tomorrow is supposed to be colder than today.
    Damn you, AlGore.

    • piper says:

      Al should be buying milk and eggs for you given how much wealth he stole from us for his globull warming scam.
      It’s cold here with -25 windchill but soon I’m off to my knitting group. Swedish blood and 30 years in Minnesota have given me the energy to venture out in this weather. It could also be that insanity gallops thru my veins.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Our schools are still closed from our 4 inches on Monday which hasn’t gone away because cold ! We don’t do well with this stuff in the south. However to my local friends and neighbors who made fun of me making the panicky “Bread and Milk” run before our crippling storm hit, who’s laughing now !? 😉

      Our streets aren’t plowed, they’re Zambonied.

      • Somebody says:

        My daughter in NC managed to escape yesterday during a brief semi thaw that lasted only a couple of hours. She was supposed to be in Salt Lake City this week for a conference and had laughed at her co-workers that she’d be missing the ice and snow storm, but her flight was canceled. Because she was supposed to be out of town she purposely ran out of food, so she ended up being a snowed in Mother Hubbard. All she had was some spaghetti sauce she had frozen and thankfully some noodles……yep spaghetti for all her meals, LOL! She did have coffee too thankfully.

        Although most of the main roads are cleared, none of the neighborhood roads are cleared. So if you live a distance from a main road or live in a hilly area which most of her area is, then you’re snowed in. My daughter lives in the back of her apartment complex and they don’t clear the roads, not only that but she has to go uphill and then back downhill to get out……then uphill again to get to the store……on icy roads that haven’t been cleared.

        There is a shopping center with a Walmart sort of behind her complex so that’s where she went yesterday after enough 4 wheel drive trucks had made a path. She said there were no buggies or even hand held baskets available at Walmart, the place was wall to wall people. She could only get what she could carry in her arms and they were sold out of a lot of items. She managed to get enough stuff to survive until it thaws this weekend.

        You’re right things are different in the south, they’re not equipped for snow and ice storms. Even the areas that have some equipment don’t have enough to clear all the roads. Are you sure you’re going to thaw out on Sunday Denise??? My daughter is just north of Charlotte and although it will be above freezing on Saturday and Sunday, the forecast shows snow again on Monday and Tuesday and then again on Saturday 2-28.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I could live off coffee and spaghetti for weeks 🙂 Sunday’s supposed to be in the 50’s with rain, hopefully melting this white sh*t ….heh…. even I, a professional couch potato, is getting cabin fever.

          My son went to a small college just north of Charlotte in Misenheimer,NC. Beautiful area.

          • swanspirit says:

            I made my milk and TP run, and cheese curls , before we got our four inches ; and I am waiting until Saturday when the temps go into the 50’s to come out !!! I feel like I am livig in the movie Frozen.

    • votermom says:

      I survived my milk run, although I may have left little bits of frozen ears in the parking lot.

    • elliesmom says:

      Please forgive me if I’m here playing a tiny violin.

      • Somebody says:

        Hahaha! How are things going in the great frozen tundra of MA? I still can’t believe how much snow you’ve gotten good grief……I could be wrong, but I’m thinking Savannah is looking pretty good to you right now amirite? Even if I am you’ll never admit that to Elliesdad, LOL!

      • votermom says:

        Heh. Do you know my youngest thinks we should live in MA? She has a bad case of snow day envy.

        • mothy67 says:

          Kid’s district is all walkers so school was impossible today, but they have a non mandatory full day online.
          Figured out what gets to me about Common Core. She has no textbooks. missed two days with strep but I went to the school to get her work and I couldn’t make sense of the assignments. The questions were what I didn’t understand. 3rd grade was a long time ago for me. I have purchased several books from Amazon but they are not always on the same track. I like to be able to follow along but without a book its hopeless

        • DeniseVB says:

          My neice is in Maine and posting photos of snowmen in all stages of torture, especially one with an ax in his head. I’m worried about her 😉

          In my dh’s hometown of Fall River (MA), they’re just happy to be that the corner Dunkin Donuts is open.

        • elliesmom says:

          We haven’t had that many snow days out here in the burbs. Three maybe? It’s vacation this week.

  7. mothy67 says:

    Already up to a sweltering 3 degrees.

    • Somebody says:

      The forecast low for my daughter tonight is -2, which is actually up from -3. Nobody in our family has ever been in temps that low……we’re Floridians! She’s freaked out, especially since she ended up getting snowed in and had her first snow and ice driving experience……but there’s nothing I can do from here for her.

      I bet she’s been furiously searching job openings in Florida, LMAO!

    From Diogene’s site – The Dems. really think she’s a good choice -uuuuuuuugh ga

    • 49erDweet says:

      Yeah. Perfect – if she had cornrows usually covered with a scarf. Appearance is everything. Necessary skills can easily be learned on the job.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I really am trying to understand this Warren cult. I don’t get where this is coming from since Warren is even less qualified than Obama was, her only experience at anything is running her mouth. Oh, being the self proclaimed Mother of Occupy Wall Street ? I don’t think America will bet on another “blank slate”.

      If the fems need a woman to lead them out of their despair (or whatevs) wouldn’t they look for an actual successful woman …. if not Nikki Halley or Susanna Martinez…..cripes, Angelina Jolie would make more sense than Eliz. Warren !

    A tasty Hillary article in the WaPo. I have my doubts about this so-called Clinton Foundation that pays Chelsea 5 million a year !!?? Other than being saddled as an Obama Democrat in 2016, Hill will have this giant albatross on her back.


    It’s okay, they’re closely regulated by the U.S. Gov’t ….. ROTFLMAO !

    • Somebody says:

      Sheesh I was born into the wrong family……5 million a year, hell I’d be happy with one month’s salary…..do you think Bill and Hill might consider adopting me??

    “The original support for Obama had it’s roots in Hillary Hate. Both Barack Obama and John Edwards vied for the ABC (Anybody But Clinton) vote in the primary…”
    The bottom line was money and the big donors didn’t trust Hillary not to follow orders. The two major issues for the person selected were buying into the health insurance version of “Healthcare Reform” and no prosecution of the massive mortgage and bank fraud. Early on, the proven corrupt Edwards was the first pick and then unproven corrupt Obama was selected.

    one of the most truthful cartoons ever

    • mothy67 says:

      “To be fair to the Obama administration, the idea that ISIS and al-Qaeda are totally divorced from “real” Islam is one that the media — including me — have furthered as well. Motivated by a well-intentioned desire to curb Islamophobia, perhaps as well as a desire to undermine these groups’
      ideology, this media narrative is nonetheless analytically incomplete. Worse, it is condescending, by suggesting that readers cannot be trusted with the truth.” — Max Fisher

      • DeniseVB says:

        I get Guiliani now. Obama loves America like an emotionally abusing husband loves his wife by blaming all his problems on her. That’s not love, that’s control. Obama’s been blaming America for all that’s wrong with the world since 2008. We dare not talk back or criticize him, because we don’t want to make him “mad”.

        And this bugs the crap out of me. Obama doesn’t care, he’s a control freak.

        All those years blaming Bush for stupid wars and whatever else his policies were screwing up, I never doubted his love for me, the citizens and his country. I liked his wife too. Wow, we’ve been so screwed these past 6 years. We need to let Obama and the Dems defend Guiliani’s comment. I can’t think of a thing that would prove Rudy wrong.
