Even NPR Calls Out Hillary's Hide-Behind-the-Pope Timing on Keystone Announcement
It's only stealthy if you don't get caught. Here was the headline:
As Pope Lands, Hillary Clinton Says She Opposes Keystone XL Pipeline
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has come out against the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline. It's something she has spent months avoiding taking a position on — and her announcement coincided with the mass media event of Pope Francis' landing at Andrews Air Force Base.
After spending months saying that taking a stand on the issue would be inappropriate, Mrs. Bill realized that she didn't really know what "inappropriate" meant and decided she'd better get busy making Tom Steyer happy.
Team Hillary probably thought they were oh-so-clever by trying to dump the news as everyone was paying attention to the arrival of Pope Francis. Grandma is really having a tough go of it with the press this time around, however, and they all noticed.
If it weren't for all the stumbling, this campaign wouldn't be moving at all.
