If Hillary wins


The political horizon for conservatives is bleak and will get worse before it gets better, former House Majority Leader Dick Armey said Thursday.

In an interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal, Armey predicted U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton will win the presidency next year, saying no Republican candidate is strong enough to beat her.

"The Democrats will win," Armey said. "I don't see any way that Hillary Clinton won't be president. She is more well-organized, she is more intelligent.

"I don't admire her. But I don't discount her ability. She is ruthless, and she is tough."

If Mrs. Bill Clinton manages to win the presidency next year (and she very will might) it will not be because she is "more well-organized and intelligent" although "ruthless and tough" will have something to do with it.

I have already discussed (here) some of Mrs. Clintons blunders, mistakes which pretty will disprove the "most intelligent woman in the world" nonsense which her sycophants are always repeating. The fact is that she has terrible political instincts and an even more terrible personality.

Everything from the White House Travel Office to the Hillary Cackle are floating around out there and in the age of talk radio and the Internet the mainstream media can no longer suppress the discussion of anything which could be harmful to the Left.

However the mainstream media can and will give Hillary the equivalent of tens of millions of dollars of what will amount to free campaign commercials by reporting on her more frequently than any of the other candidates and by the way in which they slant their coverage of her.

This will be the real reason that Hillary will win, if she indeed does win. More than half the people in the country still get their news from the MSM.
