The Questions Hillary Clinton Doesn't Want Answered About the Clinton Foundation - NationalJournal.com
April 22, 2015 Gennifer Flowers. Cattle futures. The White House travel office. Rose Law Firm files. The Lincoln Bedroom. Monica Lewinsky. And now, the Clinton Foundation. What ties these stories together is the predictable, paint-by-numbers response from the Bill and Hillary Clinton political operation.
1. Deny: Salient questions are dodged, and evidence goes missing. The stone wall is built.
2. Deflect: Blame is shifted, usually to Republicans and the media.
3. Demean: People who question or criticize the Clintons get tarred as right-wing extremists, hacks, nuts, or sluts.
I wish I didn't have to put this on the RC but I'm afraid I'll wake up and Hillary will be president. Not that it makes any difference, but we all sort of pretend as the landslide, for better or worse, goes on.
