"Senate Minority Leader
Chuck Schumer ripped his former colleague, Hillary Clinton, over her
election loss to President Donald Trump and her subsequent efforts to
explain why she lost.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent
popularity, you don’t blame other things—Comey, Russia—you blame
yourself,” Schumer told The Washington Post. “So what did we do
wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against
Trump. And still believe that.” Schumer’s comments—referring to Clinton
blaming Russian meddling and the former FBI director for her loss to
Trump—come as Democrats are trying to re-brand ahead of the 2018 midterm
elections. Democrats unveiled their new slogan as, “A Better
Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.”" Read it at Washington Post
July 23, 2017, "Schumer Comes Clean: Democrats - Not Russia - Are To Blame For Hillary's Loss," Zero Hedge, Durden
"In a somewhat shockingly frank interview with The Washington Post, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says that Democrats, not Russia, are to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump.
you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame
other things - [James] Comey, Russia - you blame yourself."
"So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that"
The reason for Schumer's sudden bout of honesty appears to be a rebranding effort for The Democrats. As The Hill reports,
Democratic party is planning to unveil a new agenda which includes the
slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future,”
and Schumer vows that it’s an expression “that everyone will use - a
better deal for workers, a better deal for women, a better deal for
Schumer said the new agenda “is not about moving the party left or right, and it’s not about appealing to one coalition or another. A
strong, sharp-edged, populist, bold economic message appeals to the
Obama coalition and the people who voted for Trump - former Democrats
who voted for Trump.”
Of course, this is not the narrative that Hillary Clinton has spewed for the last 8 months. As we detailed in June, Hillary Clinton has put forth a formidable list of culprits for why she lost the 2016 presidential election....
However there seems to be one glaring omission... Hillary Clinton!
And it's not just Trump supporters, as Liberty Blitzkrieg's Mike Krieger notes, even Hillary Clinton's former aides are sick of her incessant bullshit...
I issued a code red warning last month highlighting that I thought
Hillary Clinton’s ongoing spotlight-hogging, blame deflecting, Russia
fear-mongering tour is driven by a remnant burning desire to be
President and the delusional dream that it could still happen.
explained in the post, Manufacturing Resistance – The American Public is Being Manipulated Into Irrelevance:
current environment is fertile ground for real populist movements to
fight for an improvement in the lives of average Americans, but the
public is being fooled into focusing all its energy on an unproven
Russia collusion theory which hasn’t caused any of our very real
national suffering. Our very own homegrown racketeers and thieves are to
blame for that, but we’re being told to focus our attention on Russia.
This isn’t an accident people, you’re being played, and played quite
easily at that.
Ironically, “the resistance” is actually sucking all the
air out of what should be real resistance. After spending a few months
in the woods, Hillary is now actively moving to co-opt the entire movement. Why’s she doing that? I think she still covets the throne, and
I think she’s power hungry and delusional enough to go for it....
Even worse, there’s the naive and gullible
Bernie Sanders still trying to “change Democrats from within,” a
laughable and useless exercise. It’s unbelievably pathetic and
disempowering, but it could get a lot worse. Brace yourselves for a few
years of Hillary running around in leather jackets talking like a
“populist” as she desperately attempts to reinvent herself. Our
national nightmare is far from over."
I don’t know much, but I do know if the Democrats renominate Hillary
Clinton or some other war-mongering, corporate stooge you can pretty
much guarantee eight years of Donald Trump. If there’s no real choice,
and we’re destined to go down in imperial flames anyway, we may as well
have the reality tv guy entertain us along the way."...
