her blaming game also reached Obama!?

I hope she dedicates a whole chapter about how she herself was also the defining factor.

"I take full responsability" is an empty statement.

Clinton's approval rating significantly below Trump's; what in the world.

Kinda makes sense - all the republicans that hated her last year still hate her now, plus there's a whole lot of democrats that probably don't like her much anymore for losing.

The arrogance of selling a book? I don't know what is parody anymore. The degree of hate and dead horse beating is comical. I truly can't stop laughing.

People acting like she's running for president again. It's a book hahahaha. How dare she share her side hahaha.
I should have added an /s to my post haha. But I'm seeing a bunch of "look at that bitch eating crackers" in this thread.

She was one of the most qualified candidates ever but people simply hate her. She can do what she wants but nothing will change that. She did things that nobody would bat an eye at from a male politician but it is what it is. The Dems need to move on.

This has nothing to do with the Dems. She is doing on her own and not as part of an office run.

Yeah, she's actually trying to criticize Obama who helped clear the field for her, and Biden who chose not to run so the field could be clear for her.

I would have words but I just can't. Both the then-sitting President and Vice President sacrificed everything to help her and this is how she repays them.

Obama didn't disclose the Russian investigation and told her to go easy on Sanders as to not cause fracturing in the party (something he sure didn't care about). So, yes, he is partially to blame as well.

Yeah, no.

If NOW is the current lowest approval rating for Hillary Clinton, that only shows how incredibly stupid so many people are.

it makes sense, she missed an uncontested layup which allowed president trump

Shit is like the obama book thing, folks are so entitled.


Look at her eating those crackers

Yeah, if capitalizing off of the most embarrassing loss in the history of politics, probably ever, resulting in an unprecedented rollback of human rights in the United States, is her eating crackers, sure.

It does actually because it causes division in the party itself because of their inability to get over the loss. Her book tour doesn't have to be divisive if they don't let it.

Haha I honestly couldn't tell anymore. Was a post a few above yours almost word for word that I'm not sure either.

Man 2016 was one impressive disaster.

The fuck? She's just a lady living her life.

I will never understand how the Hillary hate got so out of control. It's fucking absurd.

Because brainless fucks who were bitter about losing started equating her to Trump; too stupid to do anything else.

Seriously, I hate all of you who fall in this category. You deserve Trump. In every possible, objective measure you are fucking morons. You're not liberal, you're not progressive; just fucking idiots. Clinton was one of the most qualified potential Presidents of all time; take all that "she ran a bad campaign" shit and shove it up your fucking asses.

Does Hillary share in any of the blame?

Yeah, I notice the same 3-4 posters always start these threads and then disappear immediately. And mostly the same ones who will be in OTHER Hillary threads like "ugh bitch go away"

It's so transparent

maybe it’s because if she’s going to write hundreds of pages blaming everyone but herself for her failings, she DOES need to go the fuck away

campaigning on “get a load of the other guys” does not engage a huge swath of the electorate like it engages us, it gets them to disengage from politics because they hate both choices.

She no longer has any political capital. Shes done. Her approval ratings are incredibly low while your guy is supposedly the most popular politician in the US.

She isn't a threat. She is politically irrelevant.

Did you read the book? Can I get a summary so I don't have to buy it?

Until she runs again in 2020. We all know the rumors will start pouring out soon.

Crazy how her mere drawing of breath drives some people to irrational hate.

It's really remarkable how unlikable she is, even post-defeat. I voted for her, but beating this dead horse leads to nothing.

I guess she makes money for writing a book, so that's something

Every single person in this country shares in the blame for what happened. We all had the opportunity to vote against Trump and people didn't. If blaming her entirely for this makes you feel better about the fact large swaths of this country are horrible people, including people you know and love, then so be it, but recognize that fact for what it is. People had a more than clear choice and they chose, at the end of the day that's the truth of the matter.

Clinton is the legitimate President. Trump is completely illegitimate. Shame she didn't fight for it.

How would she "fight for it"? She lost the electoral college. She would not have a legal leg to stand on.

THE PRIMARY WAS A COMPETITION

do you recall the things the hillary campaign said about Obama during the 2008 primary?

She blamed Obama for not going public with information he had about Russian interference before the election took place.

After Biden criticized her post-election, she started going after him as well.

Basically the fault sphere for her defeat encompasses literally everyone at this point except her.

Obama and Hillary already knew about the Russian interference and the tampering of the voter rolls was known. She could have contested the legitimacy of the results, but one of the big things that the Russians directed Trump to do was poison that well.

Plus there were tens of thousands of people out in protest after the results, if she didn't concede that could've been galvanized into something more.

Like trying to win the nomination? Indefensible!

To get back on topic... Democrats need to win back the House next year. That should be our sole focus right now. Clinton’s book distracts from that solely to stroke her own ego.
