The Roundtable: 'Wheels Coming Off' Hillary's Campaign

By    |   Thursday, 30 April 2015 11:34 AM

There are signs that Hillary Clinton's second try at the White House is already stalling out, two veteran political activists told Newsmax TV's John Bachman and Miranda Khan on Wednesday.

Ed Pozzuoli, a Fox News political analyst and former co-chairman of the Jeb Bush for Governor campaign, and Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, joined "The Roundtable" on "Newsmax Now" to take stock of the former secretary of state's nascent run for president — and found it to be in early trouble.

Pozzuoli and Pratt discussed the refusal of New York City's liberal mayor, Bill de Blasio, to endorse Clinton and a leak of State Department emails seemingly designed to absolve Clinton of wrongdoing in her response to the 2012 Benghazi, Libya, embassy compound attack.

"It may be indicative of the signs of the wheels coming off the Clinton campaign car," said Pratt. "She seems to be running out of gas. People are not buying into the old narrative and, as Marco Rubio put it, she's so yesterday."

Pozzuoli agreed that "the wheels are falling off the Scooby-mobile for Hillary Clinton," a reference to the van she rode in to Iowa this month as part of her new, woman-of-the-people campaign pitch.

"People don't find her trustworthy," said Pozzuoli. "The Clinton narrative is not just yesterday, but it's really a last decade or two. It's old and tiresome. The Clintonian approach of pushing back on opponents and obfuscation is really old, and in today's world I don't think it flies."

Assuming the Clinton camp as the source of the email leak, Pratt also questioned the wisdom of trying to pre-emptively spin Benghazi as a campaign issue while the incident — in which a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans died — is still under investigation by a House select committee.

"Anything to do with Benghazi is going to turn out to be toxic," said Pratt, adding, "Clinton is going to have some of her greatest troubles explaining all of that away. There's just so many questions about where was she and why or what were we doing there, and the fact that four people died on her watch. Man, I wouldn't want to go anywhere while she was in charge of the program."

In a pivot away from questions about her emails and Benghazi, Clinton gave her first major policy speech as a candidate on Wednesday. She addressed the rioting in Baltimore — where a man died of injuries after his arrest — and urged an end to the "era of mass incarceration."
