Hillary Clinton has lengthy had an aversion to the reality.
She twists it, bends it and contorts it to suit her personal wants and ambitions. And so it goes in Clinton’s present “blame tour” as she hawks her guide with a watch towards fattening her already appreciable checking account.
If you expect the reality of “What Happened,” the title of her legendary memoir, you can be left bereft. It bears no resemblance to the reality of what occurred in her shedding quest for the presidency.
Instead, Clinton engages in what psychiatrists name “projection” –when folks persistently blame others for their very own failings. They view themselves as continual victims, refusing to simply accept private accountability for the choices they alone make.
In Clinton’s universe, everyone seems to be responsible however her. She could be very very like Richard Nixon who mentioned of the Watergate scandal that compelled his resignation as president, “I settle for the accountability, however not the blame.”
And, like Nixon, Clinton’s title is synonymous with scandals and controversies, all of them self-created. No one compelled her to arrange a personal e-mail server. No one made her pocket $225,000 from Goldman Sachs for a speech.
And, like Nixon, Clinton’s title is synonymous with scandals and controversies, all of them self-created. No one compelled her to arrange a personal e-mail server. No one made her pocket $225,000 from Goldman Sachs for a speech. No one coerced her into utilizing her basis in a method that smacks of affect peddling and self-dealing.
In rationalizing her habits, Clinton tends to govern the information and have interaction in wholesale deceptions, peddling one fatuous canard after one other. She does it so usually and so cavalierly that it appears second nature. Distortions and fabrications are endemic in her persona.
Yet, Americans noticed by way of it. Polling knowledge persistently confirmed majority of voters didn’t belief Clinton as a result of they didn’t consider her. In politics, in the event that they don’t consider you, they’ll by no means consider in you.
This is Hillary Clinton’s deadly character flaw.
The reality is Clinton was an uninspiring candidate who ran a flawed marketing campaign. She ignored the recommendation of skilled political professionals. She by no means understood what voters really cared about and failed to plot a coherent message that resonated with Americans. And, after all, she was marred by scandals of her personal making and the copious excuses she conjured that few appeared to consider.
But in her guide and in her many public appearances and interviews, Clinton refuses to acknowledge the reality. That would take the type of braveness that calls for sincere self-reflection. She is incapable of doing so.
If you need to empty your pockets for a guide of fiction disguised as non-fiction, be my visitor. For those that don’t, here’s a checklist of all of those that Clinton blames for her shedding presidential bid. The checklist will, undoubtedly, develop as she continues speaking about it.
