After being blissfully silent for nearly three years, Hillary Clinton has returned to the public eye. She recently made millions laugh with her sad reading of what would have been her 2016 victory speech. She also claimed that Trump winning in 2024 would be the “end” of democracy.
But she’s not done. Some think the two-time loser is preparing the stage for another POTUS run. Or perhaps she is eager to get some more time in the limelight. But now, she is commenting on the sinking ship that is the Democratic Party. And she’s placing the blame on one group.
From Fox News:
Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a shot at progressive Democrats this month, appearing to blame them for the inability of the Democrat-controlled Congress to “get things done,” and suggesting they could be the cause of potential party losses in the 2022 midterm elections.
Woah. Clinton dropped the gauntlet on far-left Democrats. She blamed progressives for their inability to compromise this year. Clinton claimed they are the ones that stalled the left’s agenda—and are the reason they are poised to lose big in the 2022 midterms.
It’s pretty rich that Clinton is suddenly opposed to the far-left. She, much like Joe Biden, was trying to pander to progressives during the 2016 Election. We all know she would have bowed to them as much as Biden, had she become president.
We’d have six radical leftists on the Supreme Court right now, plus terrible socialist health care, had we a “President Hillary Clinton.”
But now that she has no power or influence in government, she is taking shots at progressives. Perhaps she thinks that moderates have the best shot at winning future elections. So, she’s taking her knives out for progressives, hoping they’ll back down.
We know that the more progressive the House got, the more moderates from swing districts lost. Many of them lost to Republicans in 2020, because voters were turned off by their progressive colleagues. Meanwhile, socialists like AOC and her “squad” refused to compromise this year, ensuring nothing got done.
But it’s far too late for Clinton or anyone else to right the ship. Pelosi gave up power to this group of extremists. And they dragged Biden and the party down with them. Let’s be honest, though. Moderates would have done the same, regardless.
