The most ironic Politico story ever

Researching one thing, I always come across something unrelated but interesting.

So it was when I came across an August 18, 2016, story in Politico.



From Jeff Greenfield:
Why the GOP Will Never Accept President Hillary Clinton
With the hiring of Steve Bannon, Trump has ensured that the party will continue its habit of de-legitimizing the Dems.
A long, long time ago (as recently as eight years, in fact) in a not-so-strange and distant land (our own, actually), it was not surprising that a candidate for president might have a kind word or two about his rival. Jimmy Carter could end a debate in 1976 by calling Gerald Ford “a good and decent man”; Bob Dole could remind the 1996 GOP convention that Bill Clinton is “my opponent—and he is my opponent, not my enemy.” And John McCain could firmly reject the idea that Barack Obama was an alien presence—in fact not even a legitimate American. "I have to tell you. Sen. Obama is a decent person and a person you don’t have to be scared of as president of the United States,” McCain told an agitated supporter in 2008.
But McCain and Dole were courtly exceptions in the modern Republican Party, whose present nominee, Donald Trump, has taken it in precisely the opposite direction. From the start of his rise to the top of the GOP, Trump has argued that not only are his Democratic adversaries wrong, they're not even legitimate. Trump first made his case as contender for the 2016 nomination by becoming the leading voice of the “birther” movement — raising baseless suspicions about whether Obama was born in the United States. Now he has become a presidential nominee who argues that his opponent belongs in jail, and who says the only way he can lose the state of Pennsylvania—where he now trails by double-digits — is if there is cheating or "rigging." When “lock her up!” becomes the default chant at a Republican rally, “good and decent woman” is not likely to be on the lips of any GOP speaker in describing Hillary Clinton.
And he is right.

You had better bet your boots that Trump hired Bannon to stop Hillary.

Voters in 30 states did not accept Hillary as president.

And guess what?

She is not president.

Donald Trump is.

When will Jeff Greenfield write the real story about Democrats trying to de-legitimatize that election?

When will Jeff Greenfield call out his own damned party?

  2. There are no mirrors in Democrat-land, which means they never see in themselves what they see in others. Then again, if they DID have mirrors, the glass would crack the first time they gazed into them....

    1. No, I think there are mirrors. The MSM & Dems just can't see their reflections... like Dracula and other blood-sucking monsters.

  3. Greenfield, like Bill Moyers, was another Lefty hatchet man hiding behind civility.

    "Jimmy Carter could end a debate in 1976 by calling Gerald Ford “a good and decent man”; Bob Dole could remind the 1996 GOP convention that Bill Clinton is “my opponent—and he is my opponent, not my enemy.” And John McCain could firmly reject the idea that Barack Obama was an alien presence"

    And that's why these guys all lost.

    Carter was not “a good and decent man”

    Willie Clinton was Bob Dole's enemy. And ours.

    Barack Obama was, and is, an alien presence.

    Every one of them was a vicious, vindictive Leftist who left the country much worse than when he found it.

  4. Way back in 2015 they were asking Trump supporters what they liked about Trump. The #1 answer was "He fights."

  5. The Stupid Party finally found someone who didn't delight in losing with honor, like Bush 41 and Johnny Maverick McRINO. The Dimocrats fight dirty. Until Trump, the Stupid Party hasn't had anyone who could do that since Lee Atwater died. Had he lived, Bush 41 would have been a two term president. GOC

  6. I seem to remember in the early CNN days that Jeff Greenfield was the show biz reporter who told us about the new season TV shows, no?

    If so, he should go back to it. He wasn't good but he was better than politics.

  8. All these lefties and their constant bitching about Trump's manner and lack of decorum -- unless they can point to their similar past criticisms of Obama and his many, many derogatory quotes demonizing everyone who disagrees with him... SHUT THE F*CK UP.

    Clanging bells. Nothing more.
