HILLARY CLINTON'S NOSE DIVE
While I still believe to a point the she will try to force this fight all the way to the Convention in August, Hillary is daily cutting her own political throat with Democrats and lessening her chances of gaining the nomination every moment she is out on the campaign trail.
Much of her downfall is media generated as the press who used to call the Clinton's buddies and for years she and Bubba have been the liberal media darlings have abandoned her. It has become obvious that the liberal press has crowned Barack Obama as their candidate and nothing Hillary does will return her to the media darling seat she once held.
But the proverbial political liar has also cooked her own goose in many respects through stupid blunders that have not only cost her support from the press but also plummeted her in the eyes of voters. Her out right lie concerning her trip to Bosnia and claiming she was under sniper fire took her from a double digit lead in Pennsylvania to a five to six point lead today.
Now she has been caught it yet another lie concerning her pet project Universal Health Care. In an attempt to show the voting public how badly this Nation needs universal care, ( which we conservatives know will destroy the medical community and add huge government entitlements), Hillary has been telling a story about a pregnant women who was denied health care from an Ohio hospital and later died as a result. Clinton stated that she was denied because she was a minimum wage earner who did not have $ 100.00 to pay before admission and thus denied hospital care.
The bogus story has been denied by the hospital which not only admitted the women but treated her. Clinton then pulled this story from her woeful health care pleas during her campaign stops. What makes this and the Bosnia incident so damaging to her is that fact that neither lie can be placed on a staffer who related the story or scripted it for her.
She personally experienced the Bosnia fiasco and the health care story was directly related to her by a health care worker and of course she never attempted to verify the story just used it to tout her health care plan because it sounded good and played well to an audience.
All of which once again questions her integrity, her ability to be truthful with anyone especially the American people and also her ability to handle any responsibility without resorting to a lie to either enhance her stance or, "experience, " or to portray something to the public in a straight forward manner without bogus exaggerations and lies.
Additionally this week Mark Penn a key campaign strategist was reassigned because as CEO of Burson-Marstellar he negotiated a free trade agreement with Columbia which infuriated Hillary as it is a political position she opposes. At first he was announced as fired but later it was reveled that he will remain as a polling and research advisor.
The virtual collapse of her campaign accompanied by the endless lies that the candidate is finding herself caught in has taken the once anointed nominee to the status of a weakening second who is struggling for her political life against a candidate who has become a rock star that speaks in generalities but has the ability to mesmerize a crowd.
I still believe that the idea that she is destined to the Presidency will not allow her to admit defeat nor will it take her out of the race before the Convention which she believes will help her as the Super Delegates are counted. That is unless she falls to defeat in Pennsylvania, then she just may reconsider. If though she does pull Pennsylvania out of her hat she will stay but her chances of gaining the nomination even at the Convention are dwindling each day. Her own lack of integrity and out right willingness to do and say anything even lie her way to the nomination have become Hillary Clinton's own worst enemy!
