RNC's Spicer: Hillary Is the Modern-Day 'Wizard of Oz'

Wednesday, 11 Feb 2015 07:28 PM

Hillary Clinton is like the mysterious man behind the curtain in "The Wizard of Oz" — she's nowhere in sight, but still tries to influence, according to Sean Spicer, communications director for the Republican National Committee.

"If you look at what's going on in our side, you got all of these various candidates out running around the country talking about issues that are important or promoting an agenda and testing out the waters," Spicer said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"[Clinton is] doing the exact opposite.... To some degree, I understand the strategy, which is we have this image of you, we're going to raise a ton of money, but the last thing we want to do is actually let people see you and touch you.

"It's almost like 'The Wizard of Oz.' Don't look behind the curtain, just know that we've got a booming voice and everything is going to go our way."

Spicer was referring to L. Frank Baum's classic fantasy in which a bland, ordinary man pretends to be a powerful wizard, but is eventually unmasked as a fake.

"You got to have pretty good eyes these days just randomly bumping into her," Spicer said of the former secretary of State and wife of former President Bill Clinton.

"One of the things that we noticed was that for someone who is actively exploring a run for the president, it's been over 200 days since she's done a press conference and over 180 days since she's met with the media.

"The only public appearance that she's done in 2015 has been a paid speech in Canada. You might have as much luck bumping into her at a parking lot as you do giving a political interview or showing up at an event."

Clinton, he joked, may be taking the same tact as NBC did with Brian Williams: disappear for six months. The NBC News anchor was suspended for a half-year for lying about being on a chopper downed by sniper fire in Iraq in 2003.

"Hey, she might have had a self-imposed, six-month deal. I can't remember which way this goes. Did she tell the NBC folks, hey, I gave myself a six-month time out; maybe you should do it," Spicer said.

Clinton herself may face her own truth issue if she throws her hat in the ring for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. During her last presidential campaign, she claimed dodging sniper fire in Bosnia, but later recanted.

Spicer believes that fiasco will definitely become a campaign issue for her.
