Hillary: Resist

    Hillary is out of the woods, but what was she doing in the woods in the first place?
    Apparently she was forming a Resistance Group, against All Things Trump.
    Not sure if she'll be in competition with or in cahoots with Obama's Resistance.
    Have these two put their differences aside, as they've talked strategies? Hmmm...this inquiring mind wants to know...

    Did George W  Bush form a Resistance Group? How about his Dad, George Sr.? What about Ronald Wilson Reagan, would he have done such a thing?

    Um...I think we all know better.

    No way. They were all Capable of moving on, for the good of the Country!

    'The Resistance'.....sounds Militant to me!

      I'd call it sour grapes leaving the good of the American people at the wayside.

      She lost a nomination and years later lost an election. A little self reflection could do her some good.

        So true.
        More time in the forest or walking along the shore, reflecting on the positive things in her life, rather than fixating on her losses and on what wasn't meant to be, would do her a world of good.

      I wouldn't put anything past Hillary or Obama, they have made it clear what they are capable of and got away with (well, so far).  They have been in harmonious collusion before. 

      That being said, the time to fight Trump was before the election and that they did.  Now he is the President, and by fighting him they would be an enemy of the State.  But, they received a lot of donations (pay offs) and didn't deliver on promises...so, I'm not sure the big bosses will let them off the hook.   

      That's about as optimistic (on their level) as I can get.

        I  was thinking more along the lines of LTL, "sour grapes"...and all that, didn't even consider promises made, not kept, hooks and all that.
        Interesting!

      Please, don't post fake news here from Breitbart or Fox News. She is forming a political action committee to raise campaign funds for Democratic candidates.

      Raising money after office is perfectly legal and a common practice for politicians.

      By the way, unlike Reagan and the Bushes, she is not a former President.

            In all seriousness, she may not be a former President, but she is a former First Lady and a former Secretary of State and she has made the run for the Presidency, twice.
            She needs to show a little Class, accept defeat and move on

              OK, I appreciate your point. But if former Republican officials can campaign and raise money against Democrats, why can't Democrats do the same?

                Which Republicans have said that they are part of the Resistance, after their Term has ended or after they've lost an election?
                What does Hillary mean by that?
                If it 's just about raising money, wouldn't she just refer to herself as a Democratic Fundraiser?

                  That's a good question. My answer is that it's just political rhetoric, like all of those folks who said Obama is a Muslim, Communist and foreigner.

                    Okay so you've switched the Subject on me.
                    For the record, my biggest problem with Obama... was his putting this Country down constantly!!
                    It is for the History Books now, but I'll never understand why so many people chose him, twice! The President should be head cheerleader, not Chief America Basher.

        "So you know, I'm now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance." ~ Hillary Clinton

        Seems Breitbart and Fox News and the other top news site are right on.  Maybe switch so you can be more accurate, not that any news site is perfect.

          Does that make her "militant" and against "the good of the country"?

            Yep.  Anyone resisting Trump because he is Trump and without regard to what he is doing is against the good of the country.  Which defines Clinton rather neatly, along with a large number of other militants.

      I think it best that hillary just stays in the forest, you know, roaming around in woods or uhm whatever.

          Maybe hillary coming out of the woods was just necessary. I mean maybe this political action council committee stuff is just a cover, to get out from under the tree canopy. I dont know what the laws or rules are where she calls home, but here, where I live, if you are out wandering around in the woods, the County comes out and takes you to a hospital. Not like a hospital with an ER and surgeons but one with pudding cups and fuzzy slippers if ya catch my drift.

            I do!
            I'm now hearing she'll probably make another run...guess she believes in that 'Third time's a charm' stuff.
