…is that whenever Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama accuse a Republican(s) of something, it means they’re doing it.
The New York times managed to somehow forget their own reporting during the election, but an interesting article is still up in their archive:
Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
Accuse your enemy of what you’re doing. Then your followers who are already inclined to be on your side will ignore your wrong-doing.
The Russian hysteria highlights what is perhaps a more significant issue for Democrat voters. Specifically, the complete lack of coherent criticism of Trump. Repeating the mantra “racist, sexist, homophobic, Russian agent” over and over is not a well-reasoned critique. And let’s also bear in mind that the President Elect went into great detail on the campaign trail as to what his Administration and politics would be if he were elected. There’s plenty there (if any Democrat voters were actually paying attention) to analyze and potentially critique. But I’ve had an easier time finding animals for my unicorn ranch than I have at finding a Liberal critique that’s actually substantive and devoid of hysteria and ad hominem attacks.
