Her Inevitable Madameship wasted no time in weighing in on President Obama’s executive temper tantrum last night, but did she need to?
Ace pointed out on Twitter yesterday that she was getting a free pass from the media on the subject:
Given that this story is likely to grow more contentious next year, was this a strategic misstep by Team Hillary? She hasn’t exactly been embracing the president in the last several months, especially when it comes to foreign policy. Could it be that she is a bit more simpatico with Team Lightbringer when it comes to the domestic front?
The MSM knows that they have a lot of work to do when it comes to maintaining the Hillary Myth. As we’ve noted here several times, she is an awful candidate, almost the polar opposite of her…um…husband when it comes to charm. This is why she gets asked more questions about being a grandmother than about Iran in any carefully controlled media encounters she has right now. It is also why the press was giving her a chance to shut up without most people noticing on the president’s immigration speech.
It had seemed until now that her advisers were deliberately shielding her from what they know will be an ever-worsening toxicity surrounding President Obama’s lame duck years. While it is definitely safe for her to pander to an ethnic voting bloc-it’s all Democrats do, afterall-is it wise to hitch her wagon to an executive action horse that is running amok?
This may seem subtle, but it is something that could (and should) be exploited by both her Republican and Democrat challengers for 2016. Will her governing style be pragmatic and effective like Bill Clinton’s was, or will it be more dictatorial in the fashion of the current occupant of the Oval Office?
It would appear that she may have just tipped her hand.
