Donald J. Trump and Bernie Sanders have a mighty, unified, singular, message for the rest of February. That message, if they take our advice, is simple and deadly effective. The message is “I am not owned by Goldman Sachs, never worked for Lehman Brothers, and never been a lobbyist.”
For Trump the way to destroy the weak second place in New Hampshire John Kasich (who spent most of his money in New Hampshire and now has no money, no organization, no future in 2016) is to remind South Carolina voters and the national audience at this Saturday’s debate that Kasich was a managing director at Lehman Brothers.
Trump can trash weak third place loser Ted Cruz for his many Goldman Sachs ties. As to Jeb Bush, Trump will remind all, that Jebbie was a registered lobbyist.
Trump will say he is not bought and paid for and no one owns him. That message will resonate powerfully in South Carolina, a state in which Donald Trump already has great popularity. Trump can mostly target Ted Cruz and let, as news reports indicate, Jebbie spend millions attacking Kasich and what remains of Robot Rubio.
Bernie Sanders will likewise scorch Hillary Clinton for her Goldman Sachs ties and her fundraising from the rich and powerful. Sanders will insist Hillary release transcripts of her Goldman Sachs speeches and Hillary will be attacked for the content of those speeches if she releases the speeches and if she doesn’t release the speeches she will be attacked for that failure.
The combined force of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders as they pummel this message will have a multiplier effect. That is our warning to all candidates not named Trump or Sanders.
As to “message” we will say it again: Hillary2016 is not a campaign – Hillary2016 is an embarrassment. Hillary supporters who deny or seek to excuse, or spin this fact away do themselves no credit and enable Hillary and Hillary2016 to remain in a bubble of self-denial and self-destructive behaviors.
In September of 2013 we wrote THE article on the not yet born Hillary2016. The title of our article, which we post and post and post until someone in Brooklyn Hillary Headquarters reads and understands what we wrote, was called: The Hillary Clinton 2016 Muddled Message Mess.
Today, after the embarrassment in Iowa termed as a “win” by deluded Hillary2016 staffers, and after the crushing loss of more than 20 points in New Hampshire, we hear echoes of what we made explicit in 2013. Only now, after Iowa, New Hampshire, and embarrassment upon embarrassment from Hillary2016 we read the obvious from The Hill newspaper:
Clinton allies panic over message
Allies to Hillary Clinton say her campaign’s problems boil down to a fundamental problem: messaging.
On the heels of a devastating loss to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in New Hampshire on Tuesday night, Clinton supporters having nightmares about a repeat of her 2008 primary loss say it’s time for a change.
They say Clinton has to quickly find her way out of this messaging conundrum and provide voters with a reason why they should elect the former secretary of state and first lady to the Oval Office.
“I love her but I still don’t understand what her campaign is about,” said one longtime supporter, who argues that the failure to find a singular message for why she should be elected president is a huge issue for Team Clinton.
Hillary2016 is a muddled message mess. Hillary2016 deserves death. Hillary2016 is an utter embarrassment.
Hillary Clinton talks about what she wants to talk about. Hillary Clinton does not talk about what Americans want to talk about. This contemptuous attitude and monumental stupidity assures a deserved defeat.
At every embarrassing Hillary2016 event we hear Hillary Clinton talk about something. Some issue or policy pours out of Hillary’s mouth like vomit from a drunk. “I have a plan” noises emit. Blah, blah, blah, echoes from 2008 persist to be the Hillary2016 product. No one gives a damn.
Americans want to talk about their anxieties, the wrong track we are on, the truth of the failed Obama economy not the statistical bullsh*t numbers, the terror of terror, the failures of Obama foreign policy, the failures of Obama domestic policy, the failure of ObamaCare, the failure of ObamaTrade, the failure of fairness, the failure to unite, the failure of the political system establishment, the failure of the academic establishment, the failure of race relations, the failure of free speech to counter political correctness, the failure of leaders to speak the truth.
Instead of what Americans want Hillary talks about what Hillary wants to talk about. Hell with that. Hillary2016 is a muddled message mess and today some few speak out like we did when it mattered. It’s panic time says The Hill:
Some supporters appeared to be nearing a stage of panic.
“Something needs to happen. How they let a guy who was so far behind in the polls a few months ago come so close to winning Iowa and killing her in New Hampshire is crazy to me,” one supporter said.
People who have had conversations with the former first couple in recent weeks say Hillary and Bill Clinton agree that messaging has been a problem.
“If I had to take stock, I’d say it’s a big, if not the biggest problem facing the campaign,” said the longtime supporter.
Hillary2016 is a muddled message mess.
Last night in New Hampshire Robot Rubio suffered an electric short. But if you want to see failed robotics, watch Hillary2016:
“When she’s having a problem capturing women, there’s a problem,” one ally said. “I think it’s time for a bit of a reboot.”
In a brief speech in New Hampshire on Tuesday night, Clinton conceded, “I know I have some work to do, particularly with young people.”
A memo from campaign manager Robby Mook on Tuesday said the campaign has “built first-rate organizations in each state and we feel very good about our prospects for success.”
Robby the robot Mook. Remember HAL 9000?
Says Robbie the Robot Mook, “I still got the greatest confidence and enthusiasm in the mission.” Will someone please pull the plug!
Bernie Sanders will not be the Obama Dimocrat Party nominee. Chris Christie will not be the GOP nominee. But Chris Christie blew up Robot Rubio and Bernie Sanders will blow up the Hillary9000 candidacy.
On Thursday, Hillary and Sanders will debate. Expect Goldman Sachs, via Bernie Sanders, to rise up to choke Hillary.
On Saturday, at the GOP debate, expect Trump to wield a bat called “Lehman Brothers” onto John Kasich’s head and a Goldman Sachs bat to batter and bruise Cruz.
The Prairie Fire has begun to burn.
