The Buck starts here

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.”
