HRC on the record

I see quite a bit of erroneous info posted here about HRC. Sadly, some comes from right wing talking points and sites. But some just looks made up out of whole cloth.

Well, we have a solution. Here is an excellent web site that lays out her voting record, policy position, and statements. Yes, facts. Facts are a wonderful thing. They always help foster intelligent discussion.

http://correctrecord.org/the-record/

Enjoy. And please feel free to use the facts "liberally."

37. Just for fun...can you provide a reliable (in your view) pro-Hillary website?

I didn't think so....in other words, the BS is your bashing.

There are a couple of folks on DU who are helping Hillary a lot, and you are one of them so I hope you keep it up. Those who already know about Hillary (and Bernie and Webb, etc.) aren't swayed the the constant attacks. Those who see the crazy BS bashes sometimes ask or take the time to investigate. Most quickly think more positively when they examine the records, listen to her, or look at primary material. If not, that's fine as long as they are checking it out.

Do you really think that DUers aren't capable of looking at a PAC website and interpreting the links! Telling them it's bullshit makes you look condescending at best (like they can't figure something out), and simply wrong (if people look at the info and conclude it's mostly accurate). They will "ignore" you, or else figure you are so anti-Hillary that maybe you are bad for the Democratic party, or maybe conclude all the Hillary bashers are zealots. Regardless, even though I hope you keep it up, it would be good for Hillary fans if you and the others keep up the bashing. The more posts per day the better. Win or lose, it's getting people to learn more about Hillary.

Please prove me wrong and suggest a better pro-Hillary link. Thanks in advance.

38. "Pro-anybody" is, by definition, not going to be objective.

 

For anyone on the fence, or susceptible to campaign spin, they should know going into that source who paid for it.

The OP didn't make that clear, so I did.

That's what I do, I educate, I give.

I'm a giver. It's a blessing and a curse, but I'm just posting information.

49. Ok...post a link that is "neutral" about Hillary that reaches a positive conclusion if you see one.

My point is that people can get information and follow up on "pro", "con", and even "satirical" websites. They will "shoot the messenger" as some point if they only see one side presented.

In my case, I don't have any problem checking who pays for the site. Heck, I have browsed FR, Drudge, etc. to see what they are saying.

If people are taking time to check out information on a candidate, they will likely conclude what they like (or don't). Its a long time to the election. OTOH, DU gets a little out of control sometimes.

I'll vote for the Democratic candidate. Any of them will be better than Jeb, Rand, etc.

30. Point #1 - Human Rights Advocate.

One of the main reasons I supported Obama over Hillary was her support for the inhumane Iraq War which killed over on million human beings, many of them children. I saw the photos, I'm sure she did too.

When asked about her opinion on torture in that campaign, she waffled, stating she 'wouldn't take it off the table'.

Then there is Libya. She has touted that horrendous human rights disaster as a victory. For whom?

Boats filled with victims of that 'victory' are leaving Libya each day, risking death, and many have died, to get out of that hell hole created by NATO.

Of course many of us Dems opposed that, what did they call it again? 'Humanitarian' invasion but were told how wonderful it is to have your country bombed to smithereens by the Western Powers, just like Iraq.

No one who advocates for Human Rights could possibly have voted for any of these war crimes in action.

And not once have I heard her talk about all the dead babies, the human rights violations that are ongoing in both those tragically destroyed nations.

And on one who advocates for Human Rights would ever endorse torture under any conditions.

10. ooh, straight from one of Hillary's Super PACs. I love Propaganda

 

When you need a Super PAC to defend yourself, it just could be that your record and rhetoric are so problematic that you need hundreds of millions to churn out some revisionist history.

She doesn't even have a platform with positions on issues on her website.

But hey, at least you're no longer pretending you don't support Hillary and that you like Bernie. While you were engaging in that charade, you were a marvelous illustration of the adage "With friends like that, who needs enemies".

You, like so many HRC supporters, consider every criticism- yes, every single one- to be right wing talking points.

John Cassidy or Amy Davidson in The New Yorker? spewers of right wing talking points

Zephyr Teachout and Doyle McManus? Ditto

Vox, Vanity Fair, Slate, Salon, The Atlantic: Well known right wing rags and purveyors of..... right wing talking points.

Thanks in advance.

I'll vote for the Democratic candidate, regardless. I'd like a Democrat to win.

The about page and contact info is very vague which is not cool in this day and age. Many people want to know who is putting the information in front of them.

Hopefully this comes across as advice to whomever is responsible for the content. It's obvious someone spent a great deal of time and money to develop it. They should do themselves a favor and proudly own it rather use anonymous about information.

52. oh please, these are all spin offs from the campaign- and really a part of it

 

Correctthe Record, a rapid-response group that's been promoting Hillary Clinton, will spin off into a stand-alone super-PAC to better coordinate with her presidential campaign.

The group says the new Correct the Record will not make independent expenditures, allowing it to coordinate its strategy directly with campaigns.

<snip>

Brad Woodhouse, president of American Bridge, will take the reigns of the new super-PAC. The group's current head, former Clinton aide Burns Strider, will stay on with Correct the Record as a senior adviser.

MMfA started with the help of $2 million in donations. According to Byron York, additional funding came from MoveOn.org and the New Democrat Network.[15][16][17]

It's an offshoot of the Center for American progress, which also publishes Think Progress. All evil right wing Democrats, eh?

So what you really mean to say is she acted as an advisor to them early on. OMG - how dare she!

And more information so people know more about the organization they are dealing with.

Actblue gives a physical address and phone number in addition to the names of the individuals working for the Pac.

Credo lists their physical address, names their company as the starter of the Pac, and names their executive director, president, & their campaign manager.

To address this on the site itself for clarity.

Not the end of the world but why should people have to try to figure out who's behind a site when most others would put it in the about section and be done with it so as to not cause any confusion?

61. Well here is the about page on the PAC that supported him

 

Notice that is almost identical? http://www.prioritiesusaaction.org/about-us/

The problem is that once elected Presidents have to govern. And they need to represent all of us, not just some of us. At least Democratic presidents do.

The fact that Obama went from being seen as a demigod here to evil incarnate by some was quite predictable. In fact I DID predict it, as did many others.

There are no perfect politicians when it comes to president. That is just the nature of the job.

36. Has Media Matters lied to you before?

 

The same people are behind Correct the Record.

Now, can you find something factually incorrect there? Can you point to lies Media Matters has foisted on the public? Are you saying everything Bernie says should also be assumed a lie? Anything his supporters say should be considered a lie? Are you saying the record of the bills she sponsored or voted for that are listed on this site are made up?

65. According to Ted Cruz's site, Cruz defended voting integrity...

 

...so it must be true

Ah. Here it is. He did that by supporting legislation that lets states enact photo ID laws.

Amazing thing, propaganda. Much less amazing are people who believe it.

70. So the folks at Media Matters are prone to lying in your opinion?

 

It's a huge web site that calls out lots of right wing bullshit. Can you point to something they have posted that is wrong?

How about Think Progress? Same group of Democrats. Are they a bunch of liars too?

Or do they only become liars if they are pro-HRC?

40. One hour and I've identified 23 Flat Out Lies on that page.

 

Damn, they are busy over there.

It kind of sucks, having to fact check propaganda created with money "earned" through her abuse of influence while SOS.

I mean really, Smart Energy Policy? She helped Chevron get a foothold in Eastern Europe over the protestations of citizens.

Pretty sick stuff.

69. Well since he got a very essential point wrong....

 

... in the post claiming the site was not factual, yeah, I think I can come to the conclusion that his idea of what is fact or not fact is not too reliable.

54. maybe I'll post a link to a page of "facts" about JEB Bush. If the link

 

goes to Fox news, it's still guaranteed to be 100% factual...right?

56. Do you think Media Matters lies?

 

It's the same people. Maybe Bernie supporters should fact check themselves once in a while before posting.

62. No. The link in the OP doesn't go to MM. It goes to a campaign site

 

A one-sided propaganda site. Maybe Hillarians should learn to distinguish between campaign sites and news sites
