Makes sense to me - Hillary is just dumb

| No Comments

Plausible thesis from Bruce Walker at American Thinker:

Hillary May Just Be Dumb
Hillary is losing her party's presidential nomination to a man who is not even a Democrat and to another man who has not yet entered the race.  How can a candidate who began with such an enormous edge that twelve months ago she was deemed "inevitable" have fallen so far?  The usual explanation is that the Clintons are too secretive, too paranoid, and too much like lawyers.

Consider another possibility: Hillary may be dumb.  We presume otherwise because she went to Ivy League schools and because she belonged to a prominent Little Rock law firm and because she has held a couple of important offices since her husband left the White House.  But we all know the real source of her success: she has been Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton for forty years.

Hillary's undergraduate degree was in political science, a major that requires nothing more of a student than slavish aping of the radical leftist positions of one's professors.  Her admission to Yale Law School was during the heyday of affirmative action, when schools were desperate to find young women to balance the gender quotas.

And her first real job?

Her first "real" job was with the Rose Law Firm, but did she "earn" that job the way most of us would have?  Well, Hillary was hired a couple of months after her husband was sworn in as Arkansas attorney general.  That continued to be where Hillary worked as her husband was elected again and again as governor of Arkansas.

Hillary was rarely in court.  Her role was that of a "rainmaker," an average sort of lawyer who can nevertheless bring in clients because of her connections.  Hillary certainly had those connections.  Her husband was either Arkansas attorney general or governor of Arkansas for 14 out of the 16 years from January 1977 to January 1993.

A bit more:

So might she not just be sort of…dumb?  She is never unscripted, and the script she reads has been written by other people who are smart.  Hillary almost never takes questions, and her responses to the few questions she condescends to answer are profoundly dull.  Hillary's private email server was a decision that was not just sneaky, but also stupid.  In fact, Hillary's imploding campaign is entirely the result of self-inflicted wounds.

She is not a good extemporaneous speaker which is why she never tries to do it anymore.
