Neverending FNC Clinton Obsession
Reported by Deborah - February 6, 2006
Ken Mehlman. Republican Party Chairman, attacked Hillary Clinton today claiming that she is too angry to get elected. Of course, John Gibson was compelled to devote a segment to this routine Republican pastime of Hillary bashing. A comically distorted shot of the Senator was shown several times throughout the segment making her look crazed with anger. Rich Galen and Martin Frost were called in to discuss Clinton's anger issues. 2/6/06
Martin Frost had a perfect take on the situation declaring Mehlman's comment "silly" adding that Clinton is "smart and tough". Frost told Gibson that Republicans can't even find anyone to run against Clinton in New York.
Gibson commented that if Mehlman wants to play to anger card with Clinton for 2008, he shouldn't tip her off because she could become a "jovial" candidate to prove him wrong. Galen replied, "Not likely."
Galen said he met Clinton in a dining hall in Baghdad adding that she has been there several times.Then he recited the Dick Morris talking points that Clinton is moving to the left to secure her base then she will move back to center. He was implying that everything Clinton does is politically motivated and dishonest.
Frost again branded the attack silly and launched into all the problems the Republicans need to be dealing with at the moment. Galen then waged a friendly bet that Democrats won't be able to gain any seats in 2006 but his bravado was not believable.
Comment: They were trying to make Hillary Clinton look bad but made themselves look like fools in the process. Each time Dick Morris comes on with his obsessive Clinton disorder, Hillary Clinton is helped, not hurt. However, I personally don't think Hillary Clinton will be running in 2008 which will definitely disappoint the Republicans who probably have their campaign smears planned in advanced.
