• MSNBC Panel: Hillary Used This Same Failed Launch Strategy in 2008

    Hillary Clinton is finally set to announce that she’s running for president of the United States and the usual butt-sucking liberal fanfare you might expect from commentators on MSNBC, was nonexistent on Friday’s Morning Joe.

    “It’s what she did four years ago or eight years ago,” said former Bush communications adviser Nicolle Wallace. “Did a video message on Facebook. Came out on a Sunday. Also not a new approach.”

    “I noticed you were shaking your head the way the announcement would go down?” another panelist asked.

    “To Nicole’s point,” a panelist responded, “Sit on a couch? Why do the same thing over again when it didn’t work out well for you the first time?”

    “We talk about this a lot. Everyone runs with the burden. McCain ran with a burden of immigration out of step with his base,” Wallace added. “Her burden is the muscle memory of everything that went wrong last time. So to repeat anything that is symbolically reminiscent of the last time is I think fail.”

    Alas, Hillary is announcing her run on “Sunday, church day,” just like she did in 2008.

    Here are a few more details on Hillary’s stale announcement from the Washington Times:

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to end the long-running speculation and jump into the 2016 presidential race as early as Sunday, multiple media outlets reported.

    The New York Daily News reported Thursday that an announcement is expected Sunday, and the Guardian said that the announcement is planned for noon eastern time followed by a stop in the early presidential state of Iowa.

    The undisputed frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, Mrs. Clinton appears to have a relatively easy path to winning her party’s nomination despite lingering questions over her use of a private email system and server while serving as President Obama’s secretary of state.

    The Associated Press is reporting that Hillary will first announce her bid to social media online:

    The first official word that Clinton will seek the Democratic Party’s nomination will come via an online video posted on social media. She’ll then make stops in key early voting states, including Iowa and New Hampshire, where she’ll hold small events with voters.

    One Democrat familiar with campaign rollout said Clinton’s stops would include visits to people’s homes in those early states.

    The people familiar with Clinton’s plans spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss them publicly.

    I agree. Hilary Clinton does have some burdens.

    Hillary’s biggest burden is that she’s a pay phone Democrat in an iPhone world.
