The Hill reports that democrats want Bill Clinton to pump up Hillary’s coffers in her Presidential campaign as she tends to be a stiff:
“Fundraising is not a natural strong suit for Hillary,” one top Democratic fundraiser bluntly said.
Hillary Clinton is “lacking a certain personal touch,” the person said. The source added that the former secretary of State “publicly, is a little stiff.”
Donors think Bill Clinton, who so far has been on the sidelines of his wife’s presidential bid, could fill a void for the campaign.
“She doesn’t come across as naturally comfortable in these settings,” the donor said. “Bill Clinton is the complete opposite. The more social an environment, the more at ease he feels.”
Hillary’s aloofness consequent to the belief that she deserves to be President and her naturally chilly nature leads to a lack of popularity with those having the big bucks:
“If this was a business, you’d never run it that way,” the donor said. “I’ve been unbelievably shocked by the lack of basic courtesy.”
If she can’t fake sincerity even with the big donors, she’s got trouble. It doesn’t help her cause that she feels she’s entitled to a coronation. Neither does it help that she believes she is above the rules that apply to everyone else.
Anyway, the question is- why don’t democrats want a bigger role for Bill Cosby? Cosby is a democrat who campaigned for Obama in 2008. Why not prevail upon him to boost Hillary’s campaign?
Could it be that pesky sexual assault accusation thing from 50 women?
Word is that Cosby is looking for a criminal defense lawyer.
Bill Cosby’s agents are looking to hire a criminal defense lawyer as prosecutors in Pennsylvania consider revisiting a 2005 sexual-assault complaint. Lawyer Edwin Jacobs said he was contacted by Cosby’s representatives about a Montgomery County investigation into allegations made by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. Jacobs said he referred them to another lawyer. The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported Jacobs’ claim.
If charges are filed, it would be the first time the 78-year-old comedian has faced criminal charges on allegations from the more than 50 women who have accused him of drugging and raping them.
Here’s a timeline of Cosby’s alleged, er, activities.
Even Hillary Clinton says we should believe rape victims. democrats make a huge issue of sexual assault. Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) suggested that male students at schools should be expelled for mere accusations of rape. We should generally believe claims of rape, says WaPo.
So the left really seems to take this seriously. Some of the accusations against Cosby go back decades. It seems elapsed time is not an impediment.
Thus we have to ask- why do we not believe the women accusing Bill Clinton of sexual assault? We’ve documented the abuse and invective the left (including Hillary) have heaped on the victims of Bill Clinton’s “alleged” sexual assaults here and here. Clinton’s accusers were treated like vermin:
To see similar hypocritical Leftist misogyny, we need only go back to the last time a Democrat was in the White House. Whenever a woman came forward with allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct by Bill Clinton, the response of the Clinton defenders, both in and out of the media, was to attack her credibility, character, and virtue. Advisor James Carville famously said of Paula Jones (the young Arkansas state employee whom Clinton as governor had his state police guard procure to his hotel room for the purpose of orally pleasuring him), “Drag $100 bills through trailer parks, there’s no telling what you’ll find.” Evan Thomas of Newsweek dutifully complemented the slander by declaring her on national television “just some sleazy woman with big hair coming out of the trailer parks,” though he later was compelled to apologize in print. (One wonders how residents of trailer parks felt about that, but I guess empathy for them is for the little people.) When Kathleen Willey accused the president of groping her in the White House, and was physically threatened for her trouble, feminist icon and (former) scourge of sexual harassers Gloria Steinem said that it was no problem — he was entitled to a freebie, after which Cathy Young of Reason magazine reported on “the death of sexual harassment.”
It was abominable. Donald Trump has been blasted for his words recently but his antics pale in contrast to the above.
Given the Cosby events, why are we not revisiting Bill Clinton’s past pursuits? Why aren’t they appearing daily on Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood? Why doesn’t Gloria Steinem feel Cosby is entitled to a “free one” or two as she did Clinton? Why is Cosby being whipped and Clinton sliding by? Cosby has become a pariah and the left wants them more of Bubba. Why? There is one obvious explanation-
Bill Clinton is white and Bill Cosby is black.
