Shameless: The Next Generation

On Tuesday, former (and perhaps soon to be again) First Daughter Chelsea Clinton attacked Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, her mother’s chief rival in the presidential primaries.

“Sen. Sanders wants to dismantle Obamacare, dismantle the [Children’s Health Insurance Program], dismantle Medicare, dismantle private insurance,” Chelsea charged, telling an Iowa audience that he “would strip millions and millions and millions of people off their health insurance.”

The Sanders campaign quickly fired back that the young Clinton was “wrong” and disingenuously ignoring the fact that Sanders would bestow government-paid healthcare coverage on every American. For free! (Unless you happen to pay taxes, that is. Then, it’d be very expensive.)

“It wasn’t an honest attack,” declared Democratic strategist David Axelrod on CNN.

But on ABC, Hillary defended her daughter, doubling-down by arguing, “that’s exactly what he’s proposed. To take everything we currently know as health care, Medicare, Medicaid, the CHIP Program, private insurance, now the Affordable Care Act, and roll it together.”

Strange, in 2008, when Hillary was promoting a single-payer system and Barack Obama took issue, Mrs. Clinton decried “tactics right out of Karl Rove’s playbook,” asking, “Since when do Democrats attack one another on universal healthcare?”

“This is wrong and every Democrat should be outraged,” the 2008 Hillary declared. “So shame on you, Barack Obama!”

Now it’s Hillary Clinton who knows no shame.

“More striking perhaps,” lamented Mark Halperin, a senior political analyst for MSNBC and Bloomberg News, “was a lack of interest that most of the news world had to [Chelsea’s] remarks.”

Maybe when Clintons “dismantle” the truth, it just isn’t news anymore.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Why was the lack of interest in Chelsea’s remarks ‘striking’? What difference will they make? Her mother is set to be the Democratic nominee for president, barring some kind of awakening in the Democratic Party. How could Mark Halperin lament this lack of interest in the Democratic campaign by the news media? Where were Bloomberg News and MSNBC? He’s part of those organizations. He’s part of the problem. The media has been making excuses for the Clintons since at least 1992. Why would they suddenly get upset at the Clintons now? Sorry, Mark. You and your colleagues made your own bed. Now you can lie in it.

    …. Now it’s Hillary Clinton who knows no shame …. 

    “Now,” she knows no shame? 

    As opposed to when, pray tell? 

    The woman’s long been the the very model of unshaken amorality 
    And Webster Hubbell’s daughter, Chelsea Cli’ton’s doubled as her organ grinder monkey

    two − 1 =  1
