In seven words, why Hillary lost

The crème de la crème of Hillary's handmaidens in the press authored, "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign."

Shattered referred not to an imaginary glass ceiling for women, but for the lifelong dream of a kid of privilege who felt entitled to be the first woman president.



The book offers some Clinton approved insights -- she called the president and apologized for losing, but not the interesting stuff from election night, such as what she threw and who she threw it at.

The Clintons want to maintain her political viability.

Newsbusters got on the case of one of the authors -- 'Shattered': Book Mocks Hillary's Kickoff Speech that Author Praised in 2015 -- and I praise them for holding the Washington media's little toes to the fire.

But the article included an excerpt from the book -- explaining how bulky and cumbersome the campaign was -- that nailed why she lost:
Hillary didn’t have a vision to articulate. And no one else could give one to her. In fact, the more people she assigned to the task of setting the tone for her campaign, the more muddled her message became. The list of writers on the first address included, but was not limited to, Schwerin, Muscatine, Favreau, Benenson, Mook, Palmieri, Podesta, Grunwald, Sullivan, and Schake, who was Michelle Obama’s image maven before joining the Clinton campaign.
Got that?

"Hillary didn’t have a vision to articulate."

Trump did -- Make America Great Again.

Hillary could give Americans no reason to vote for her other than she is female.

Great for her, but how about we try to make our country great?




The original, "Trump the Press" chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.
Then came "Trump the Establishment," covering the election, which again the media missed.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

  2. These people that think you can use a committee to create a leader that inspires people to vote for them ... um, no. Doesn't work that way. Never will work that way.

  3. She apologized to Obama for losing. She opened up them all up to prosecution. I bet she really, really apologized.

  4. Poor Hillary - and now she has to face the wrath of the special prosecutor that Trump appointed on his first day in office as promised.

    1. Those of us who have fantasized for years now about seeing the treasonous criminals in our government frog-marched in orange jump suits, we are still asking "When"? I will give Trump credit for genius that I can scarcely comprehend or follow, but still.....

  6. She had a vision for America but it was so destructive she could not let the voters see it. The problem was in devising a camouflage vision but they couldn't come up with a cover story big enough to cover all of her negatives.

    1. Trump and Hillary both have a vision for America. Both are destructive, with Trump it will be a much quicker burn than Hillary's. Then again, maybe not. Three days after Trump said he had an "armada" of ships en route toward North Korea, said armada was spotted hundreds of miles away near Indonesia. Seeing how Russia continues to punk the U.S., maybe Trump ought to bring Palin back into the fold. At least she can see Russia from her Alaskan house. SMH.

    2. Gawd, you still getting punked by SNL? Tina Fey is the one who said that, not Palin. It's said that people who can't tell the difference between "comedy" and real life get to vote.

    3. Russia really does border Alaska, fool.
      That Sarah Palin was mocked for her concerns about Russia is kind of ironic since the fakestream media has been hysterical about Russia for months.
      OMG, an armada of ships sent to NKorea was spotted off the coast of Asia. Duh.
      Hilary's position was: vote for me or I will call you sexist.
      From the array of America haters aligned against Trump we can tell he is doing as promised, trying to make America great again which you likely think we never were.

    4. Little known fact: Russia is located only 2.4 miles from Alaska, the width of the strait of water that separates the Russian island of Big Diomede from the American territory of Little Diomede Island. The only reason I know this is because I have a piece of walrus tusk ivory that was carved by a native artist from Alaska's Little Diomede. At that distance, someone who lives on one of the two islands can see the other if the weather is clear.

  7. I think if your sole appeal to voters is that you have lady parts, then your lady parts had better be appealing.

  8. "Hillary didn’t have a vision to articulate"

    In part, that's because she did not dare to make a clean break with Obama and his radical policies. People were tired of the constant strife Obama instigated to advance his controversial remaking of American society. They wanted something different. This is something Trump could offer as an outsider but Hillary could not. She was damned if she did (i.e., confessed the past 8 years of Democrat rule had been a failure), but was damned if she didn't (because the country yearned for a change in direction). I think her defeat was probably inevitable, and Obama himself is one of the major reasons for her loss. She desperately wanted the presidency but (unlike an LBJ) was not ruthless enough to separate herself from Obama's legacy. She needed to appeal to white America but at the same time she wanted to hold onto the votes of African-Americans and ethnic-Americans who formed a crucial part of the Obama coalition. As a matter of strategy, she tried to finesse the issue but did not do a good enough job. I have three words to explain why Hillary lost: BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.

  10. This is well stated and right on. I might also add that Hillary possesses angry shrew like characteristics. The presidency is heavily dependent on likeability and a reciprocity of that feeling. Trump could project it because it actually exists In​ him, not in her. Also in the last stint to the wire Trump showed an energy she could not muster. Energy implies caring. Obama cared about himself, Hillary cared about money, Trump cared about others, that was his message.

    1. Oh yes, Trump cares so much about others that he has spent one-fifth of his presidency vacationing at his hotels and golf courses, most of the time without his (current) wife and son. Trump is on track to spend more tax-payers dollars on his golf outing vacations in one year than Obama did in his entire eight years in office. Yes he cares about others with his Buy American EO even though his clothing line, and hotel supply suppliers come from foreign countries. Trump is likeable? ha. His historic Gallup Poll low unfavorable ratings say otherwise. Probably because Trump doesn't possess angry-like characteristics. Don't feel bad, if Hillary was elected, the country was going to be flushed down the toilet. With Trump, it will just flush faster.

    1. I agree with you, but you could also have said this: His stays in Florida have been working get-aways. He has hosted foreign leaders there, away from the toxic environment of DC, and for all we know he has had any number of quiet meetings with potential candidates for still unfilled appointments in his administration. Some of his staff have been there in Florida with him, so it wouldn't surprise if they've been working diligently on matters like the budget and other bills the administration will propose to Congress. If Trump downsizes government and controls future spending as he has promised, the cost of these weekend "retreats" will pale in comparison with the savings from a "right-sized" federal government.

  12. Political viability?

    "She was looking kind of dumb
    With her finger and her thumb,
    In the shape of an 'L' on her forehead."

  13. As for the likeability factor, which Pres. Trump has and non-president Hillary does not, there are many documented stories about Hillary's temper, bad manners, and ill-treatment of others. There are no stories about her kindness or generosity to others, even for political ends. There are, however, many documented stories, dating from years ago until recently, about pre-Pres. Trump's voluntary kindnesses and generosity to others, of his time, possessions, and money. That says volumes about both of them.

    1. Trump helped many from whom he received nothing, H seems to have never done a favor without an expectation of repayment, with interest. Whether this is actually true or not in her case is not as important as the fact it is the image she built for herself as a politician, perhaps to show she was rough and tough requiring real pay for play,but it may reflect her real self. Real or feigned, It didn't work out for her.
