CNNers Agree: ‘Icky’ and Sexist to Attack Hillary Clinton as ‘Ruthless’
by Noah Rothman | 11:31 am, February 10th, 2014



Following the publication of documents relating to how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comported herself politically in the Washington Free Beacon, a CNN panel took on those revelations and their possible political implications. The panel also took on Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) attacks on Bill Clinton’s sexual exploits and the revelations contained in the documents relating to Clinton. Most of the members of the CNN panel concluded that Clinton is aided by how the media is portraying her.

Paul has recently attacked Democrats who campaign with or accept donations raised by Bill Clinton because of his past behavior which would not be tolerated by anyone else. CNN contributor Will Cain said that Paul is correct in asserting that it is hypocritical for a party that supports Bill Clinton to level “war on women” attacks on the GOP.

“This is coming from a man who took advantage of a girl in the workplace,” Cain said of Clinton.

“Some would argue, it takes two to tango,” Michaela Pereira said in Clinton’s defense.

“Well, clearly,” Newsday columnist Ellis Henican agreed. “There is a reason we do not have ‘take your spouse to work day’ in America.’”



Moving on to the documents about Hillary Clinton portraying her as a “ruthless” operative, Cain said the revelations were important because this behavior could manifest itself in a potential Clinton presidency.

“If those terms were used to describe a man,” Pereira countered, “People would say –- would likely say –- those are laudable qualities.”

“If gender were flipped, it would be very different,” Henican added. “The reason not to talk about, it is old, it’s icky, and it’s none of our business.”

If I remember right when Palin was running for vice president she was attacked every day for just being alive and daring to run for office. Hillary should be looked at under a microscope and taken apart and studied and if found lacking should be hit hard and fast yes even attacked. She has a very murky background she should be attacked for whatever she has done that has been bad for her country and for us. There has been illegal things she has done in the past to get where she is today and she should be pressed on them. No pass for this idiot on her past like the one given to Obama.

Perhaps they would prefer disloyal, untrustworthy, immoral, and criminal? :shrug:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
