Hillary Plays The Crying Card
PORTSMOUTH, NH, Jan. 6 -- Hillary Clinton teared up at the end of a roundtable with undecided voters here the day before the primary.
After she fielded questions on how to stop manufacturing jobs from going overseas, housing, No Child Left Behind, and how she would get her healthcare plan through Congress, 64-year-old Marianne Pernold-Young, of Portsmouth, asked the senator how she got out of the house in the morning and who did her hair.
Clinton joked about having help with her hair and then began to get choked up and teary-eyed.
"It's not easy and I couldn't do it if I just didn't, you know, passionately believe it was the right thing to do. You know, I have so many opportunities from this country, I just don't want to see us fall backwards (voice breaks a bit, people applaud) This is very personal for me it's not just political, it's -- I see what's happening, we have to reverse it and some people think elections are a game.
"They think it's who is up or who is down. It's about our country it's about our kids' futures it's really about all of us together you know let's (inaudible) just put ourselves out there and do this against some pretty difficult odds. And we do it each one of us cause we care about our country. But some of us are right and some of us are wrong. Some of us ready and some of us are not. Some of us know what we will do on day one and some of us haven't really thought that through enough and so when we look at the array of problems we have and the potential for getting really spinning out of control this is one of the most important elections America's ever faced," Clinton said.
Pluck those heartstrings, cue the drama...Mrs. Clinton plays the Crying Card.
Join me in singing the below lyrics, which are sung to the melody of Kermit The Frog's "It's Not Easy Being Green":
Hillary Clinton: It's Not Easy Being Mean
It's not that easy being mean;
Having to spend each day covering up your tracks.
When I flip flop on all the issues of the day, yes, no, maybe...
You know, faking it like that.
It's not easy being mean.
Keeping secrets on cattle future's money or Vince Foster's death.
And people call you a witch or worse
That your husband is a serial adulterer
And you have to keep covering that stuff up.
But mean is truly what I am.
I don't have to work too hard it it.
If I don't get what I want there will be hell to pay, earth shattering ramifications...
In a big, big way.
When mean is all there is to be
Then it will be mean that comprises me.
If you wonder aloud why I am mean,
Just look at who I'm married to and that will explain a lot.
