Press Misses Point about Hillary Clinton’s Shift to the Left

It’s a well known fact often mentioned by political pundits: politicians run as far right or far left in the primary and then shift in the general to appeal to the center and Independents. We’ve seen it before by the Clintons. It’s called triangulation (the brain child of Dick Morris). Bill and Hillary literally have taken on Republican views in order to win. They have no scruples. And the fawning establishment press just ignores their duplicity. Remember DADT, DOMA, NAFTA, the dramatic rise of incarceration of African-Americans, welfare reform, etc. These were all Republican ideas that Bill and Hillary embraced.

Don’t be fooled any longer. Hillary will drop all progressive mouthings. Remember: she called herself a “moderate” not too long ago. It was just before Bernie Sanders entered the presidential race. Then all of a sudden she starting criticizing Wall St. The same people who fund her campaigns.
