Hillary Clinton returned to Iowa over the weekend “to support candidates” running for election in that state. It was her first visit to The Hawkeye State since she came in third place there during the 2008 presidential primary.
While smiling and laughing her way through a crowd of supporters, Hillary was asked how she felt about “Obama’s delay on immigration.”
The question came from Monica Reyes of DREAM Iowa, a pro-amenesty organization.
Hillary’s response to Reyes’ questioned was awfully cold. “Well, I think we have to keep working. Can’t stop ever working,” Hillary said.
“Do you support Obama’s delaying the decision?,” Reyes shouted to Hillary.
“The president has broken his promise to Latino communities, Madam Secretary. We wanted to know if you stand by the president’s delay of immigration reform?” a second DREAMER asked.
Hillary responded again with a dry, robotic answer. “Well, I think we have to elect more Democrats,” she said.
Sadly, though, these DREAMERS and Hillary might be out of luck on that whole “elect more Democrats” thing.
Poll after poll suggests that Senate Democrats are on the fast track to losing their coveted majority. It’s so bad, that even former White House hack Jay Carney had to admit that “It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats.”
However, at the end of the day, Hillary is really only looking out for Hillary. She didn’t visit Iowa to be questioned by DREAMERS. She came back to Iowa to help stomp for a Senate Democratic hopeful and more importantly, to help herself.
Iowans love Hillary. And a new CNN/ORC International poll offers some proof. About 53% of all registered Iowa Democrats said they would support Hillary Clinton if the 2016 caucuses were held today.
I’m just hoping those poll numbers and those roaring crowds give Hillary all the false hope in the world. Because nothing would make me happier than to see her entitled little heart crushed again.
The DREAMER that confronted Hillary says she was not happy with the immigration answer she received.
