Bill Kristol: 'Schoolmarm' Hillary's SC Comments Said Nothing

Monday, 22 Jun 2015 05:29 PM

Hillary Clinton's comments on the Charleston church massacre showed an "annoyingly superior" posturing that smacked of a "schoolmarm sort of tone," Bill Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard, tells Newsmax TV.

"She's posturing in that annoyingly superior way she does. Without saying anything … of course. Without offending anyone who might actually be part of the Democratic coalition," Kristol said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

During a speech on Saturday before the U.S. Conference of Mayors in San Francisco, Clinton said of the slaughter of nine African Americans by a white racist:

"I know this is a difficult topic to talk about. I know that so many of us hoped by electing our first black President we had turned the page on this chapter in our history. I know there are truths we don't like to say out loud in discussions with our children, but we have to. That is the only way we can possibly move forward together."

Kristol said Clinton's delivery came in an "annoying kind of schoolmarm sort of tone."

"'We know there are some things we don't discuss with our children.' What is she talking about? I've talked to kids about the history of race relations in America," he said.

"I don't think most Americans are unaware of that history and the present situation and all of its complexities."

Kristol believes that Clinton is a "weak candidate" who has a 20 to 30 percent chance of losing the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination to a younger more aggressive challenger.

"No one thinks she's sincere.... Why shouldn't the left just nominate someone on the left instead of bending to an accepting Hillary? She's at risk," Kristol told Steve Malzberg.

"I don't think [Vermont Sen.] Bernie Sanders probably ultimately is the first to beat her but he certainly is [talking] pretty effectively."

"He's obviously hit a nerve and if you're [Massachusetts Sen.] Elizabeth Warren, you've got to be looking up and thinking 'geez, if Bernie Sanders can do this, what can I do?'"
