    Not trying to intentionally be an outright asshole, but this "faux outrage" nonsense that people throw around just SMACKS of ignorance that could only be on a caliber synonymous with lingual ignorance, IMO of course.
    Faux outrage means essentially, "fake outrage". Something that one would not be normally outraged about if it was not about a certain someone...

    Clinton clearly lost the preschool vote here, but since the Republicans have alienated most everyone else in America I'm going to stick with my prediction that Hillary walks in to the Oval Office essentially unopposed.

    Not what I want to see happen, mind you, but since most lunatic fringe primary-voting Republicans insist that their candidates veer ever further to the right in order to secure a nomination there's no chance in hell that they'll run a candidate with half a chance of winning a general election.

    But keep telling yourselves that what America REALLY wants in a far right candidate...
    Unopposed? Thats doubtful, even just historically a 3rd consecutive term by any party is highly unlikely, and after all this hope and change people are fed up and I think that will matter. Beyond that Hillary is clearly a highly flawed candidate even by the dems own standards.

    Its getting to the point where perhaps all the GOP needs to win is to not be Hillary.

    Hey if Hillary wants to throw kids off the playground thats her deal, not mine-I noticed she didn't reschedule when she found out.

    I think play has some very important functions in childhood development, apparently Hillary does not.

    Hillary bumping people off a playground to stump for votes is rather ironic isn't it?

    A harbinger of her administration...

    Re: ‘Tone-deaf’ Clinton campaign throws kids off playground

    Now that this news is out, a deft & savvy campaign would capitalize on it in some form:

    Maybe have an 'outraged at the administrative mistake' candidate take personal charge of the event in such a way that the kids have an even better day alongside hers, and find a way to add some spin via an activity to perhaps additionally provide the kids with knowledge of America & the political process. Or better yet, 'skip her day' and go there to 'personally fix the kid's day', all the while with her cameras in tow.

    Provide plenty of photo-ops of Secy Clinton with the kids personally making sure their event is better than ever, and provide plenty of soundbites of her working hands-on with the parents.

    +++

    "Running the government is a tough job & there's many problems & issues that occur everyday. But when problems come-up, this is how I operate: I role-up my sleeves, get involved, and make it right - and if you give me the privilege of your vote, this is how I work for you as your President!"

    +++

    A statement like this said with Ms. Clinton surrounded by playing & happy kids, with one on her arm and approving parents in abundance, would be a powerful optic.

    Follow with an interview of one of the girl kids saying saying, "She's the best; I think she should be President because she fixed everything, and when I grow-up I want to be President like her and fix things!"

    And close with a parent happily exclaiming, "It's good to see a person like her talking to us and making sure she understands and is taking care of the concerns of regular people like us".

    And I'm sure some students at Liberty University didnt want to attend that speech but were subject to fines if they didnt attend One could play this game all the time. But then again, we know why this is an "issue" for you. Your personal shedevil is involved.

    Its not false outrage, its a legitimate observation. Dismissing it as false is intellectually lazy.

    Now, Ive already said its not the end of the world, but you should see its also very uncool, and politically unwise.

    The media is just getting started, if you don't think this is fair game the next year and a half is going to frustrate you.


    Well....they already know she doesn't have a record to run on. So they will have to cover the fashionables.

    I suspect you are right.

    She seems to be playing a dodge-everyone game at this point, and it may very well back-fire.

    She may go down in history as the pre-eminent poly-sci case study as to how to lose primaries as the most presumed inevitable winner - that loses every primary she's in!
