Hillary: the video, the poll, and the myth.


Video of Hillary Clinton 'lying for 13 minutes' goes viral  "A video stringing together clips of Hillary Clinton's lies and flip-flops has gotten 7 million hits on YouTube.  The video was posted in January but didn't receive widespread attention until Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker wrote about it recently.
Hillary Clinton’s vast résumé of, shall we say, inconsistencies, is the dog that caught the car and won’t let go. A viral video collection of her comments on various subjects through the years is bestirring Republican hearts,” Ms. Parker wrote. “To those who’d rather vote for a reality show host than a Clinton, the video merely confirms what they’ve believed all along. For independents and even Democrats, it’s a reminder of how often Clinton has morphed into a fresh incarnation as required by the political moment.”
  "Tea on the tarmac"? Really?

The Video:



Hillary losing to Trump 45-42 in new poll  "Even Hillary Clinton’s supporters admit she has a “likability problem,” which is a polite euphemism for her unattractive personality, including (but not limited to) her obvious penchant for lying, her condescending attitude towards others, and her nearly intolerable voice when she gets excited and emphatic, epitomized by her yelling at a crowd about the need to stop yelling."

Enough on her character and statistics; let's get on to economics:
The Hillary Myth  . . . " It's the centrist-at-heart Clinton whom conservatives and Republicans eager for an acceptable alternative to Donald Trump can vote for.
"Only there's a problem: This Hillary Clinton is entirely mythical. She doesn't exist. As the Democratic party has lurched to the left, she has lurched with it. While talking up growth, she has proposed no incentives to produce it. She relies on government spending to stir growth, Obama's woeful policy. On tax cuts, she's for boosting the top rate on individual income to 45 percent, the highest in three decades. Under her complicated plan, the tax rate on capital gains would jump from 23.8 percent to 39.6 percent, then to 47.4 percent with surtaxes. The Tax Foundation concluded her tax hikes would cut annual growth by 1 percent and shrink incomes by at least 0.9 percent. That's a recipe for less job creation, more wage stagnation, fewer business startups, and a despondent country."  Fred Barnes
