Today in Ohio, we saw Hillary Clinton at her political street-fighting best:
At a campaign event in Cleveland, Clinton criticized former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. She pointed out that Rubio said he wouldn't support exceptions to an abortion ban for victims of rape and incest, that Bush said Planned Parenthood should be defunded and that Kasich banned state funds from going toward rape crisis centers because they sometimes refer women to abortion clinics.Now we're talking.
"Now extreme views on women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don't want to live in the modern world, but it's a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States," she said. "Yet they espouse out-of-date, out-of-touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st-century America. We are going forward; we are not going back."
Of course, the Republicans are whining about being thrown into the same pile as terrorists on this issue...but they aren't going to get an apology. Hillary's remarks were obviously well-planned and just begging for such a response.
She hit the nail on the head: They truly do not want to live in the modern world when it comes to women. And they are stuck with their losing positions.
So let's just enjoy watching Bush, Kasich, Rubio and the rest squirm as their war on women keeps backfiring into their hapless faces.
