Fox News recently listed 40+ reasons Hillary has given as to why she lost the election. In summary, It was anyone’s fault but her’s.
Peggy Noonan at the Wall Street Journal doesn’t agree:
Hillary Lacks the Remorse of Conscience
“But wow. Her [Hillary’s] public statements since defeat have been malignant little masterpieces of victimhood-claiming, blame-shifting and unhelpful accusation. They deserve censure.” ……..
“What is true is that throughout her career Mrs. Clinton has shown herself to be largely incapable of honest self-reflection, of pointing the finger, for even a moment, at herself. She is not capable of what in Middle English was called ‘agenbite of inwit’—remorse of conscience, the self-indictment and implicit growth, that come of taking a serious personal inventory. People are always doing bad things to her, she never does bad things to them. They operate in bad faith, she only in good. They lie and exaggerate, she doesn’t. They are low and partisan, not her. There’s no vast left-wing conspiracy only a right-wing one.”
“People can see this. It’s part of why she lost.”

The Clintons went to Washington to do good. And they have done quite well.
It’s getting pretty serious for Hillary when a liberal favorite like Bob Woodward starts comparing her to Richard Nixon, and on liberal rag MSNBC no less. Love it.
Burn, witch. Burn
Woodward: Clinton Emails Like Nixon Tapes
Liberal hero and long-time Washington correspondent Bob Woodward appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Monday to say the arguments being made by Hillary Clinton about the email scandal simply don’t make sense. Woodward said the scale of the emails sent and deleted is massive and it shouldn’t be up to Clinton herself to determine what should be kept secret.
“I would love to have all 60,000, read them,” Woodward said, noting it would be a fascinating character study of Clinton.
Woodward, who helped break the Watergate story wide open, compared Clinton’s attempts to keep her emails secret to Nixon’s secret White House recordings. As for the claim by Clinton that the scandal is only about partisanship and Republican attacks, Woodward dismissed that argument.
“That dog will not hunt at all. You have got Barack Obama’s government looking at this and investigating her,” Woodward said.

Hillary was firmly behind Obama (a dangerous place for a sleazy woman with a knife) before teaming up with Nancy Pelosi to stick it to him. Nobody would accuse Hillary of not knowing upon which side her political bread is buttered.
45 Times Hillary Clinton Praised the Trans-Pacific Partnership

CNN has turned up a whopping 45 instances in which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed a trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, that she now says she opposes. Of course, she was doing the bidding of the president, not an independent actor — but this goes to suggest, as I’ve noted, that she is less offering coherent answers on trade issues, at the forefront of the policy debate right now, than she is trying to find politically palatable ones.

Nancy Pelosi just snubbed Obama over huge trade deal
House Democrats just helped kill a key part of President Obama’s top-priority trade package.
In a stunning defeat, the Obama-backed Trade Adjustment Assistance measure was voted down, with the final vote tally coming to 126-302.
Following a closed-door meeting with Obama and House Democrats on Friday, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi joined rebels inside her party and announced her opposition.

And the dog ate my form OF-109.
In a just world, Hillary Clinton would be barred from running for president for committing the same felony that caused General Petraeus’ demise.
Clinton private email violated ‘clear-cut’ State Dept.
The State Department has had a policy in place since 2005 to warn officials against routine use of personal email accounts for government work, a regulation in force during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state that appears to be at odds with her reliance on a private email for agency business, POLITICO has learned.

The only difference is that, hopefully, the General will rebound and the Clintons will not.
Dave Petraeus, National Hero
I’m not sure how, but he will serve his country again. In fact, in what he is already doing—not only for our national security debate, but also our wounded warriors, our next generation of students that he currently instructs when wearing his teaching hat, and Americans around the country who admire his grace under duress, is just the latest chapter in a remarkable career that is far from over.
