Once Again, a Dem 2016 Strategy Backfires

Postby snoscythe » Mon Dec 19, 2016 3:28 pm

The Dems have had a remarkable run in backfiring strategies this election year, including:

1) Focus on drumming up the urban vote where Obama won big (note--Hillary is from the wrong palette for that to work) and ignore rural areas.

2) Push for recounts to expose Trump fraud (whoops, increased Trump's margin of victory and exposed fraud in support of Hillary)

and today this--after Dems and leftists have pushed for Presidential Electors to ignore election results and "vote your conscience" in a bid to delegitimize Trump's win, they actually ended up persuading some Electors to do just that--4 of Washington state's 12 electors voted for Colin Powell and Faith Spotted Eagle instead of Hillary, who won in Washington. Once again a Dem strategy backfires and undermines Hillary. Gotta love it.

What person on the left who has been calling for faithless electors is going to complain about this first?

It's too bad that corrupt Shrillary is ending her very public political career in massive flames. Breaks my heart - not.

Both Hillary and her political team were so arrogant and certain she had the election in the bag, when Bill Clinton told her team they needed to pay attention to Wisconsin and Ohio - they laughed at the Big Dog. Can you imagine the follow-up conversation? Bill: Hillary .... I told you........

So suhweeet! Ha ha ha!!!

Must have been the Russians.


If ye love the tranquility of servitude better than the contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Speaking of the Russians: How would you like to be on the side opposing Russia and Syria now? How do you think Russia will respond to their ambassador being assassinated in Turkey today? Ouchie! Stand-by! Hellfire is coming. Russia don't play.

Here's part of the reason why Trump won. In the final 10 weeks of the campaign, Trump made 51% MORE campaign stops than Hillary. She either 1) thought she had won and didn't need to campaign that much, 2) was physically unable to campaign that much or 3) the Russians hacked her travel plans and prevented her from campaigning that much.

Actually there is a 4th reason ......
4) Hillary is an Alien and didn't assess the political landscape accurately, making critical mistakes. :-)

I think you nailed it with #1 and #2. Arrogance and Physically shot. Hillary actually had a bed in her Chevy van so she could take naps after events and a defibrillator!!!!! Everywhere she went she had a doctor traveling with her.

Hillary's rolling bed -

And 2 of those stops were in California. Really? California? She was never gonna NOT win California. She could have passed away 3 days before the election AND STILL WON California, but she made two stops here at the end...

It would also be interesting to see how many of these campaign events for HRC and Trump were actual campaign events as opposed to fund raising events.
