Hillary To Bernie, "You Smear Me When You Tell The Truth!"

An interesting question came up about whether Hillary would be willing to share transcripts of all her speeches before the big money boys. She said she’d look into it. If she’s the “progressive” she claims to be, she should be willing to share those transcripts immediately as a matter of public record. Something tells me we either won’t see these transcripts, or they’ll be released months from now, after the primary race is decided. SNIP


But back to the “smear” campaign. Obviously, Hillary and her team are hoping the media will focus on the smoke and mirrors generated by that loaded term, while neglecting the reality of Bernie’s truth-telling. Given the craven nature of the mainstream media, her cynical gambit may even work.

When the big money boys give millions to candidates, any candidate, they’re not usually so blatant (or stupid) as to be buying votes. They’re not going to get caught telling a candidate, vote yes on this, no on that. What they’re buying is access. They’re gaining the candidate’s ear. They want to be the last “person” to whisper in the candidate’s ear before she or he makes a decision. SNIP

If THAT is the kind of candidate that you as a voter thinks that we need... You've got your _______________!

3. If Hillary won't release the transcripts during the Primary...

... I don't want her to release them ever (if she ends up beating Bernie; which hopefully she will not).

I have no idea what good it would do to release them if she is running a General Election against a Republican. I don't particularly like or trust Hillary Clinton, but I would want her to win over the Republican who I would like and trust even less. Lesser of two evils.

Of course, she SHOULD release them now if she wants to have a chance at earning some trust from many of us.

4. It's a no win situation, regardless of what she does. She's boxed in.

If she doesn't release them, it looks like she's hiding something.

If she does release them, then

1) The transcripts have damaging information -- in which case she's screwed.

or

2) The transcripts reveal that nothing of importance was said -- in which case the question will be asked, "Why the hell did GS pay so much for that?"

She's boxed in.

5. Just another tidbit for the Rs. One more won't matter much. Everyone already knows...

 

we're not stupid. Just one more shady tale for the Rs. The Democrats need to decide if they want a shady candidate or a real candidate. Bernie would release any transcript. He can definitely beat any Republican...especially Trump who they may just end up with. He really wants to run against Trump.
