Last week, I wrote about Sean Hannity adopting the Republican plan to turn Hillary Clinton into Mitt Romney and attacking her elitism. Last night, Hannity tried to get Romney, himself, to follow the same strategy.
I don’t know whether Hannity forgot that Clinton was supposed to be Romney – as a bad thing – or if he forgot about Romney’s infamous “47 percent” fiasco or if he just thought there’s no such thing as a bad attack on Clinton. But in an interview with Romney last night, Hannity prodded him to attack Clinton as too elitist:
HANNITY: What do you make when Hillary Clinton goes out in her luxury van with a 29-inch TV and a bed and she doesn’t talk to the media and then we find out the events that students are locked in the classroom and we find out people are handpicked and they tell us it’s a spontaneous discussion in a coffee shop. Meanwhile, the campaign drove the people to the event. Can’t seem to relate to real people. How much difficulty do you see if she can’t overcome that, for her?
ROMNEY: Well, you know I’m not the one to give advice, political advice, to people running for president. I didn’t win. So she may get better advice elsewhere. But my inclination would not be to try and make Hillary Clinton the woman of the people. That’s not who she is. Out there with a Scooby van – it just doesn’t look right. And she just doesn’t connect in a way that I think her people would like her to connect. And so, do what she does best and run, if you will, a Rose Garden type of strategy. I think it would make a lot more sense for Secretary Clinton.
Watch it below, from last night’s Hannity.
IT TAKES AN ELITIST TO KNOW ONE, YOU PERENNIALLY PAMPERED CHICKENHAWK!!
