Republicans' favorite label for Hillary Clinton 2016: 'Obama's Third Term'

Republicans' favorite label for Hillary Clinton 2016: 'Obama's Third Term'

By Dan Merica, CNN

"SNIP.....................


"Hillary Clinton has a Barack Obama problem," reads a lengthy research document that will go out to GOP pundits, strategists, conservative organizations and media members Tuesday. "No matter how many of her advisors whisper to reporters that she's different from Barack Obama, Americans still know who she is: Barack Obama Part Deux."

The document lists "10 Reasons Why Clinton 2016 = Obama's Third Term," including her praise for Obama as she left the State Department in 2013, her role in his first four years of foreign policy and Clinton's support of Obamacare.

"Looking ahead to 2016, it's critical that Obama's 3rd Term is an element of the broader narrative defining Sec. Clinton, especially since she still has a higher approval than he does," Tim Miller, the group's director, said in a statement to CNN.

Multiple Republican operatives said this strategy -- which is coming from national party groups, outside super PACs and GOP politicians -- is best at engaging the base and raising money. Therefore, it is something they plan to continue in the coming months and possibly years.

1. But Obama's numbers are rising as he talks about vetoing the nutters

and proposing middle class policies.

3. In many ways their administrations will be similar, they are both democrats and this will result in

Many likenesses. If Hillary is the next president she will still face some of the same problems with issues like terrorism and national security will be on her mind every day. She pushed for national health insurance in Bill's administration and failed and Obama was able to sign in the ACA so they both think Americans should have health insurance.

5. On Real Time last night some GOP Wall Street Journal nut

tried to start the meme that Obama had not been talking about inequality and middle class needs for years. That it was a new policy position for him. Look for that rewriting of history out there in the MSM. Because the GOP got nothing. Their policies are corrupt and hurt most americans. They need to rewrite Obama completely. And then run against that strawman. I think the GOP are beginning to panic.

8. +1000

Middle class people know what has been hurting them. They know what the banking crisis was caused by. They know they got left out of the recovery for 6 years. They know who is watering down financial reform. As long as they turnout to vote the GOP doesn't stand a chance.

7. And Jeb Bush would be a sixth term for the BFEE.

George HW Bush =,2 terms as vice president, 1 term as president
George W. Bush = 2 terms as president

We can play that game too.
