The Breakfast Scramble: 11 November 2016

DavidL's Breakfast ScrambleThe Breakfast Scramble:

The Clinton campaign’s inside view, from Politico [1]:

So much of the campaign’s energy was spent explaining inherited issues, they said, like the paid speeches Clinton delivered to Wall Street banks, pay-to-play accusations about the Clinton Foundation, and fallout of Clinton’s decision to set up a private email server at the State Department. “They spent their time protecting her, explaining her, defending her, with all these issues, the speeches, the Foundation, the emails — that became the energy of the campaign,” sighed one longtime Clinton confidante.

All those issues cited by the Clinton campaign as baggage came from deliberate choices made by the woman formerly called the Smartest Woman in the World.

DNC staffer unloads on Donna Brazile, via Washington Free Beacon [2]:

Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.”

Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down. Brazile began to answer, but Zach had more to say.

“You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.”

Aside to Zach, all candidates are flawed. However, not all supporters are blind and stupid.

North of the Border commentary, Ezra Levant dumps on media narrative, Rebel [3]:

Donald Trump’s support amongst white Americans only went up by one per cent, and if that were the only boost he got, he would have lost the election.

Donald Trump won because he had big gains with minorities.

Starting with black voters, he was up to 8 per cent from Romney’s one per cent. Of course, the Democrats still dominate black voters, but that shift is a major breakthrough.

Ezra has got numbers, and he got them all from the New York Slimes.   The ‘rats need to get over ninety percent of the black vote, and a like percentage of Hispanics votes as well.   For a conservative these numbers are out of reach.   However there are common sense conservative issues like good schools and safe neighborhoods which would play with a modest percentage of black and Hispanic votes.    Get these votes and the ‘rats will need to write a new playbook.
