"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Document drop on a Friday evening, so Clintonesque.

I think they are covering their bases for any outcome of this leak; so this is why they leaked that she could be too sick to run.

They needed to dump these documents to make room for the porn wing of the Clinton Library.

Hillary Clinton was warned as she embarked on her own career in politics that she needed to appear more authentic to the public, in a candid memo from a senior adviser that was released on Friday.

Mandy Grunwald, an influential consultant who later became head of media relations on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, told Clinton at the start of her “listening tour” in July 1999 that she should “be careful to ‘be real’.”

The criticism was delivered just as Clinton began her transition from the wife of the 42nd president to a candidate for US senator from New York 15 years ago, but has continued to echo through her career ever since.

Grunwald’s memo was among a tranche of 3,000 previously withheld pages released on Friday by the Bill Clinton presidential library in Arkansas. Some 30,000 more pages, which Republicans hope will contain disclosures that could damage Hillary Clinton’s prospects for a second White House bid in 2016, are to be published in all.

The newly released records also include private advice from the former first lady’s press secretary, Lissa Muscatine, and documents related to her failed efforts at healthcare reform. ...

Trying desperately to humanize the 'Beaste:

Hillary’s handlers pushed ‘Home Improvement’ cameo
By Geoff Earle

WASHINGTON — Former First Lady Hillary Clinton’s handlers were so desperate to “humanize” their boss’ wooden image that they encouraged her to appear on the cheesy ’90s sitcom “Home Improvement,” according to newly revealed documents.

The TV remodeling plan was one of just many efforts cooked up by Clinton’s image-making machine during her husband’s presidency, as she laid the groundwork for what would become her own political career.

The idea was pitched by Hillary Clinton aide Lisa Caputo to chief of staff Maggie Williams, documents released Friday from the Bill Clinton Presidential Library show.

“I know this may sound like a wild idea, but I think it is an interesting one to discuss,” Caputo wrote. She then gushed about the merits of a cameo on the top-rated show, which starred actor Tim Allen, noting that the producers were willing to do a show on women and children or whatever issues Hillary would like” and that it would “present Hillary in a very likable light.”

But Caputo hedged: “It is probably worth weighing it against what we believe we might be able to gain by such an appearance politically and image-wise.”

Among the suggestions was a spot on the 90s sitcom “Home Improvement” to “present Hillary in a very likable light.”

She noted that Clinton pal TV exec Rick Kaplan was “100 percent in favor of Hillary pursuing this project.”

The desperate effort foreshadowed by decades ongoing efforts to soften Clinton’s image through town-hall meetings, confessional interviews and a lighthearted Twitter account.

Other image gurus pitched softball magazine shoots of party photos while coaching Clinton to be “real.”

One 1995 memo — part of a 4,000-page dump — even encouraged staffers to recycle cornball anecdotes about how Clinton liked children.

A 1999 memo from consultant Mandy Grunwald, in advance of Clinton’s trip upstate, advised the future New York senator: “No matter what the question, use your answer to get back to our message.”

Her longtime adviser further coached: “Be careful to ‘be real.’”

The Clinton camp kept the documents out of view for years, but the White House and Bill Clinton’s office finally signed off on their release this winter.

One piece of advice to Clinton from 1995 sounds particularly dated. “Internet has become a very popular form of communication. Hillary could speak to young women through Internet.”

The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.

So with Russia aiming on invading Europe does anyone care about The Clinton's crap?
