Dick Morris Predicts Hillary Clinton to Crash in Primary

Here’s some good news for Hillary Clinton. Dick Morris, who is never right about anything whatsoever, is predicting that she’s going to crash and burn in the Democratic primary. And since he’s never right about anything, that pretty much ensures that Clinton will get the nomination.

So, as long as there is no other Democrat actively running for president, the wrongs Hillary does do not bring her down. But, the flip side is that when other Democrats emerge in the 2016 race, they will rise quickly and acquire broad support. The negatives on Hillary, accumulating for month, will suddenly count, and voters will take a real look at their alternatives…

The dynamic of the debates will inevitably be bad for Hillary. No matter how well she performs, her opponents will be making their first impression and will pick up support. As the Democratic voters see other candidates backing pro-choice, anti-gun, pro-same-sex marriage causes, they will look at Hillary’s negatives and move toward the attractive alternatives they will see on the screen.

And the negative that Republicans throw at Hillary will acquire new salience when articulated by fellow Democrats. When accusations about Benghazi come from the mouths of certified liberals like Sanders and O’Malley, they will be hard to ignore.

Jim Webb, particularly, brings an extraordinary background to his candidacy. A combat veteran who won the Navy Cross, the Silver Star Medal and two Purple Hearts, he was undersecretary of defense and Navy secretary under Reagan, has written 10 books and served one term in the U.S. Senate. Articulate, moderate and vigorous, he will make a good impression on television.

And we can count on all four of Hillary’s opponents ganging up on her in the debates, ripping her for erasing her emails, lying about Benghazi and harvesting cash from questionable donors to the Clinton Foundation.

Mark it down, it’s over. Hillary wins in a landslide.

    Ed,

    Yea. Morris has been wrong.

    On a related topic, how do you feel about the fact that the slam-dunk favorite for your party’s nomination runs a crime syndicate (The Clinton Foundation)?

    First the Dems give American a sexual predator for president, then a Chicago machine Alinskyite, and now a 21st century Ma Barker. The Democrats: a gift that keeps on giving.

    The silence of progressives on Hillary’s obvious criminality is deafening.

    The crime syndicate that Clinton runs bothers me a lot less then the crime syndicate known as the Raping Children Church that Egnorance belongs to. As do presidential wannabees Jeb Bush, and Rick Santorum, amongst others. He who lives is a glass house with very thin walls like Egnorance does should avoid tossing rocks.

  • Michael Heath

    I’d like to see Hillary Clinton get some credible competition during the primaries; particularly if their serious candidates who are ideologically different than Ms. Clinton.

    When I look at the Democratic party’s weaknesses, one of their biggest is their lack of succession planning – a weakness I observe going all the way down to the local levels in many areas. Getting some viable candidates in the presidential primary will somewhat mitigate this when it comes to other elections, presidential and non-presidential, along with nominations for cabinet positions if they win, e.g., Kerry and Clinton becoming SECSTATE, and Biden becoming a VP.

  • dingojack

    And who’s been funding this ‘obvious criminality’*? Folks like Glennie Bek.

    Quick Lil DookieDawg, to the Kanine Klown Kar, you’ve got a ‘master criminal’ to catch! @@

    * weirdly, there’s not been a shred of evidence to back this allegation of ‘obvious criminality’ up.

    Oh I forgot, you follow the voices in your head from your imaginary friend, no actuality is required (or permitted)!

  • sugarfrosted

    @1 at most being a minor source of bribery = crime syndicate. Good to know. With all the Catholic Churches illegal dealings, what would that make them?

  • http://en.uncyclopedia.co/wiki/User:Modusoperandi Modusoperandi

    He’s got a point. Benghazi is an important weak point that other Democrats will use against Hillary.

  • daved

    I won’t be completely convinced until Bill Kristol weighs in and agrees with Morris. After that, it really is a slam dunk.

  • sugarfrosted

    On a less response to a moron note. Dammit Dick Morris, being wrong is your super powers, predict she will get the nomination

    Re Michael Heath @ #3

    The biggest disappointment I have is the failure of Virginia Senator Mark Warner, who IMHO could be the Democrat’s potentially strongest candidate, to to show any interest into getting into the race. Here’s somebody who, unlike Carly Fiorina, had a successful career in the private sector before entering politics as Governor of Virginia and later Senator from Virginia. The big problem for him is his surprisingly narrow victory for reelection to the Senate. I would add that the fact that he comes from a purple state contrasts him with Hillary, Elizabeth Warren, and Martin O’Malley who hail from deep blue states.

    sugarfrosted – since your question will severely tax Lil’ DookieDawg‘s brain —

    collaborators (at the absolute least) with anti-Semites, misogynists, racists, paedophiles, child-murders, rapists, money-launders, peddlers of arms, drugs & stolen art, mass-murders and genocidal psychopaths (just to mention the very tip of the ice-berg)…

    And we can count on all four of Hillary’s opponents ganging up on her in the debates…

    No opponents? Four opponents? Mr. Morris can’t keep count in the same column.

    Here’s a list of “declared and exploratory Democratic candidates” and “potential Democratic candidates”:

    http://2016.democratic-candidates.org/

    Personally, I hope Elizabeth Warren will run, but so far she’s not biting—perhaps waiting for a more propitious occasion in 2020.

  • Synfandel

    Dingo, you forgot rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists.

  • Synfandel

    Okay, it is kind of hard to pin Methodism on the Catholic Church.

    Yea, the article is only two days old, so Morris shoulda known about Sanders. I’m just thinking that there’s more than one way for Morris to be wrong here.

    What if Sanders never mentions the silly emails, and concentrates on corporatism? I’d like Clinton to somehow at least think about the need to fix our system of cronyism.

    What if Sanders never mentions Benghazi, and wants to talk instead about foreign policy and military interventionism? Clinton has only ever blamed Bush for lying about WMDs, never taken responsibility for her own part in the subsequent disaster. (Nor have any of the others who voted for the war, of course.)

    Etc.

    That, to me, is the great hope of having Sanders put Clinton’s feet to the real fire. Well crisped feet is what all politicians need. Of course, Sanders needs the same. It’ll be great.

    I am not too worried about it. Daredevil will stop her well before the election. Maybe even before the primary. If not him, then Batman, for sure.

    Synfandel – You did see the reference to the tip of the iceberg, right?

    Actually you can blame Catholics for Methodists. See: Papacy in the 16th century.

    Were the Foundation chartered in New York (which recognizes libel per se) as opposed to Arkansas (which doesn’t), that might be quite an intriguing assertion.

    Dick, I know you guys have convinced yourselves that there was some kind of ill-defined malfeasance by American officials in Benghazi, but you haven’t convinced anyone else. Democrats aren’t going to bring up Benghazi against Hillary Clinton, because we don’t think there’s anything there — even those of us who don’t particularly like her. You look at every discrepancy, and inflate it into a “lie”, and every “lie” into a “cover-up”. We look at the same events, and ask — to quote H.R.C. — What difference does it make? Whether it was in reaction to the infamous video, or not? Whether Susan Rice or H.R.C. went on the Sunday shows to talk about it? How does any of that matter? Yes, four Americans died. At the hands of non-Americans. It happens. What rational basis is there for blaming H.R.C., or Obama, or any American, for that? As far as I can see, there is none.

  • scienceavenger

    Morris is just swinging for the fence to try to save his career. There’s way more upside if he’s right than downside if he’s wrong.

    As for Dukedog, most of you in the realitry-based community are probably scratching your head over WTF an Alinskyite is. Saul Alinksy is one of those boogeymen that the rightwing bubbleheads yammer about constantly, along with George Soros, ACORN, and Bill Ayers. It’s worth learning these things, because its priceless when members of the GOP get on national news shows and mention this nonsense to bewildered reality-based audiences: See Romney’s “please proceed governor” moment in the debates, and Gingrich’s mention of Alinsky in a press conference, which drew crickets. The alternative-reality media will no doubt strike again soon.

    Re scienceavenger @ #22

    Actually, it’s the Rethuglicans who are the most ardent followers of Saul Alinsky. Alinsky said that the way to progress was to rub raw the sores of discontent. That’s exactly what the teabaggers do.

  • ffakr

    Poor Dukedog. The worst attack against Clinton, the one he seems to really think has legs, is that her family ran a Charity organization that tried to fight the scourge of AIDs around the world.

    How DARE Hillary and Bill devote their non-professional life to helping others!!

    You know, all snark aside, an empathetic urge to help other people is the sort of character flaw that Republicans can use to rally their base. Maybe she is in trouble.

    sugarfrosted @ 5 I recommend Gerald Posner’s recent book God’s_Bankers for a blow-by-blow of the Vatican’s dysfunctional financial dealings in the last century.

    I’m an Independent, but as has happened so much over the years, I’ll probably hold my nose while voting for the Democrat over the likely Republican. Too many political races remind me of the ol’ campaign between the oft-indicted La. gov Edwin Edwards and former Klansman David Duke, and the notorious bumper sticker: “VOTE FOR THE CROOK: IT’S IMPORTANT”

    @1″…a Chicago machine Alinskyite…”

    Can somebody please explain to me ASADS (Anti-Saul-Alinsky Derangement Syndrome) that conservatives have been collectively suffering from for the past six years or so? What specifically makes them get into into a froth over the guy? The closet thing thing I’ve seen as, ahem, “evidence,” against the guy is that he made an obviously (well, obvious to me, anyway) tongue-in-cheek dedication to Lucifer in his book Rules for Radicals. Pretty weak tea.

  • sugarfrosted

    @28 it’s because they stole his ideas for protesting and want to hide the fact.

  • Nick Gotts

    synfandel@11

    Thanks for the link. I now favour Andy Caffrey, who I hadn’t heard of before, although I think he’ll need to define a clear policy on the key issue of genetically modified marijuana.

    I’d guess Egnorance@1 is referring to a racketeering lawsuit issued by *chuckle* Larry Klayman, but if he has any real evidence that the Clinto Foundation is a criminal syndicate, I’m very ready to hear it. Nothing would please me more than to see Hillary Clinton out of the race, so a genuine liberal, or even progressive, might get the nomination.

    Egnorance’s description of Bill Clinton as a sexual predator is spot-on, while his description of Obama as an “Alinskyite” is risible: I doubt whether Obama had even heard of Alinsky, any more than I had, before both became the subjects of far-right obsession. There’s plenty to charge Obama with (war crimes, support of foreign tyrants, expanding the surveillance state), but these activities have been common to all recent Presidents, of both parties, and I have a hunch Egnorance would approve of them, at least when done by Republicans.

  • Nick Gotts

    dan4@28,

    I suspect the name “Saul Alinsky” has a lot to do with it. It sounds suspiciously East European (therefore Commie), as well as (obviously) Jewish – allowing the right to indulge their gut antisemitism (ebil Jewish conspiracy to install alien black Muslim Marxist in the Presidency) without offending the Israel lobby.

  • Kermit Sansoo

    Hey, DukeDog7, why this focus on Benghazi, when there were 13 attacks(1) and 60+(2) dead from them during the Bush administration? It’s true that Obama still has a year and a half to go. but there’s no reason to think that these widely dispersed attacks will increase in frequency. And of course, this is not counting the twin towers attack, which progressives – not being, on the whole, insane – do not hold against Bush. (Too much – it does seem as though he had largely ignored intelligence reports.) I do, however, hold him responsible for dropping the hunt against bin Laden and building a case of lies(3) for a different and unrelated war against Iran.

    .

    (1) Ambassadorial or consul property. More, if you count other US government buildings.

    (2) Not all Americans; some visitors and non-US employees.

    (3) I do not know whether he lied to the American people or to himself; they are both moral failings and led to much misery, expense, global ill will, and a new generation of terrorists.
