Once again, the supposed Hillary Clinton support and “excitement” is apparently nothing more than a carefully staged theatrical play!
The democrat-run Chicago Sun Times has inadvertently reported that attendance by supposed Hillary Clinton “fans” at the Tom Harkin Steak Fry in Iowa was staged!
Lynn Sweet at the Chicago Sun Times reports Team Hillary had to pay people with free food and transportation to attend the Tom Harkin rally in Iowa! (italics and bolding ours)
“Lynda Tran, a 270 partner [a political firm] who is a Ready for Hillary adviser, said the group has been planning a campaign-style welcome in Iowa for her and encouraging Iowa supporters to attend the Harkin Steak Fry. “Ready for Hillary is also purchasing tickets and arranging buses for Students for Hillary supporters who want to attend the event — buses will depart from Drake University, Grinnell [College], Iowa State University, the University of Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa…”
So, students who do have money for rock concerts, dates and burgers won’t even attend a Hillary event unless they are told it is all free and they get free steak?! Hey, why turn down a free steak? So much for REAL support or excitement. Oh, and all those polls showing Clinton miles ahead of Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry fail to offer voters the option of “Please God, Anyone but these people!”
Apparently, the former Secretary of State and child rapist lawyer, Hillary Clinton (that’ll piss off the left!) has not learned her lesson. She has been in trouble before for staging political events, several times. And here. And again here. Oh, and over here too. And she promised in 2007 she would never stage events again!
In 2008, she reportedly staged “impromptu” visits at diners and local hangouts during her losing campaign against Barack Hussein Obama.
After promising that staging events would not happen again, it happened again. I guess she just meant she would try not to get caught again. From Patterico.com: “Gateway Pundit has the story on Hillary’s Jesus moment: “Hillary got a “surprise” visit from her Sunday School teacher from the Chicago area while she spoke in Donnellson, Iowa. It looks like Hillary’s Jesus moment was likely another staged event for the Democratic front runner.” Read the details at Gateway Pundit and then note this BarackObama.com community blog post and update: “As you know, Hillary met in Donnellson Iowa at a firehouse (you can’t beat that, images of 9/11 and all) and a person, Amy Fellows of “Croton Iowa” (no such city) asked her if she was Christian. What followed was a saccarine exchange of religious greetings and an oportunity for Hillary to expound on her Methodist upbringing. Following on the heels of the e-mail scandal where Hillary campaign workers were caught spreading mis-information that Obama was a Muslin, this was pretty neat. After this homily on Methodism, “somone in the crowd” (how convenient, an anonymous person) shouted our “Her Sunday School Teacher is Here!” What heppened next is up for debate. The AP wire story and other outlets carried this as a long-lost runion between Clinton and Ms. Bentzinger, her Sunday school teacher. No mention was made that the two had met in April of this year at a similar event in nearby Fort Madison. The spin on the story was that this hearwarming event was a reunion for Ms. Clinton and Ms. Bentzinger. I first heard of this event on the hillaryclinton.com blogsite when a poster put up a message to the effect that this was such a wonderful heartwarming event – again the implication that this was a long-lost reunion. When I ponted out they had seen each other a few months earlier, the poster on the blogsite deleted the original message…”
11/12/2007 – Another staged question. This time it was followed by Hillary Clinton claiming she knew nothing about that! “On November 12, 2007, the New York Times reported that “At two campaign events in Iowa this year, aides to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton encouraged audience members to ask her specific questions, a tactic that drew criticism from an opponent for the Democratic presidential nomination and led her yesterday to promise that it would not happen again.” In response, Clinton remarked, ‘It was news to me […] and neither I nor my campaign approve of that, and it will certainly not be tolerated.‘”
