I’m guessing the Hillary Clinton campaign is generally oblivious to the world around them – how else could you explain their decision to avoid talking to the media, or even taking unprepared questions from normal Americans? However, I didn’t realize that they were so oblivious that they could possibly miss the fact that they were going center one of Hillary’s stump speeches around a jab that a GOP candidate had already used.
On Saturday, when Hillary Clinton, relaunched her campaign, she made a tired and unoriginal joke about the Republican candidates being like ‘that old Beatles song, Yesterday.’ What she must have forgotten was that the GOP’s Marco Rubio had already trotted out similar rhetoric and used it against Clinton when he launched his candidacy a couple of months back. Though his comments were far more original…
Because while our people and economy are pushing the boundaries of the 21st century, too many of our leaders and their ideas are stuck in the twentieth century….
They look for solutions in yesterday, so they don’t see that good-paying modern jobs require different skills and more education than the past. They blindly support an outdated higher education system that is too expensive and inaccessible to those who need it most….
Just yesterday, a leader from yesterday began a campaign for President by promising to take us back to yesterday.
But yesterday is over, and we are never going back. We Americans are proud of our history, but our country has always been about the future. Before us now is the opportunity to author the greatest chapter yet in the amazing story of America.
We can’t do that by going back to the leaders and ideas of the past. We must change the decisions we are making by changing the people who are making them.
The Rubio campaign has proved once again how proactive they are, and just a day after Clinton’s tired old attack on the GOP, he has launched a new ad mocking her for pretending that she herself isn’t actually the epitome of YESTERDAY. The more the public sees her, the more they will begin to realize that Clinton is a relic of the past, a dinosaur, if you will, of the old and busted political system that has been in place for the last two decades.
