Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, not just because she was completely unlikeable and utterly corrupt, but because she had no message — could not explain to the American people why she was running for president or how she could make their lives better.
Other than her vague and empty “Stronger Together” slogan — which sounds like something out of the USSR — the only rationale she could give was that she had a vagina.
It wasn’t enough.
Say what you will about Donald Trump — and it’s all been said, both bad and good — but at least he was running on something. He was running on stopping illegal immigration, repealing Obamacare, defeating ISIS, restoring economic growth, and of course, putting America first. What was Hillary running on? Who the hell knows?
What was Hillary running on? Who the hell knows? Besides the coastal elites and sexual perverts who supporters who supported her, no one knew what her message was or why she was running for president.
On Thursday, former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, speaking jointly on the topic of leadership for the 2017 class of the Presidential Leadership Scholars (PLS) program, were asked about what quality is the most important for someone aspiring to be President.
George W. Bush answered “humility,” and while Slick Willy agreed that humility was important, he decisively took a different angle, one that could easily be construed as a slam on his wife, Hillary Clinton.
“I also think you have to begin with the end in mind,” Bill Clinton began. “That is, you have to say, ‘Yeah, you got to win the election, but why in the heck are you running?'” he said.
“That’s the other thing I noticed about him (GWB) — when he ran for governor [of Texas] against Ann Richards, he didn’t say, ‘Ann Richards is a klutz,’ he said ‘I want to be governor because I want to do 1…2…3 things.’
A couple of them I didn’t agree with but he had an agenda. If you want to be President, realize it’s about the people, not about you.”
Hillary Clinton had no “end in mind,” as described by her husband above. It was all about her and being the “first female president.” She had no agenda and unlike what Bill described above, Hillary Clinton could not articulate why she was running for president other than she thought it was “her turn” after a life of political greed and graft.
In 1979, then-presidential candidate, Democrat hopeful Ted Kennedy was asked the now-famous question: “Why do you want to be president?” In one of the most uncomfortable moments in TV history, the entitled Kennedy was stunned — looked like a deer in headlights — and after several moments of awkward silence had nothing. It knocked him out of the race (and this was even before social media!) and little-known Jimmy Carter became the President of the United States.
The loving Democrat Media Complex never asked Hillary such a direct question, but even so, Americans still heard the answer.
