        The Hypocrisy comes from her always bashing the NRA for spewing BS about guns (Which they do.), and saying that them and Republican lawmakers were "Complicit." in the Vegas shootings. In fact, pretty much right after the shooting she blasted the NRA in a Tweet. I guess that she didn't even have to wait for the facts to come out, or the fact that the guns were obtained legally and that he was stockpiling (Which most gun owners certainly don't do.). Not to mention the BS that she said about Bernie Sanders siding with the gun manufacturers instead of the children and families of the Sandy Hook shooting after he said that he didn't think that gun manufacturers should be sued. That's where the hypocrisy comes from.

        As BG points out, that is not hypicrisy. Those can be considered varying degrees of lies, half-truths and cherry picking but they are not hypocrisy.

          From what you are describing, she is consistent with all of this.

            For what it is worth, the NRA deserves more blasting than it gets. As it has corrupted what gun rights were in the US for about two hundred years.

    Her hierocracy is in calling others liars, or that she supports other or that she wanted to bring this country together while only talking to certain segments of it. So agree in this at least she was not full of hierocracy...she probably is somewhere else...all politicians are.


I am not saying she has never been hypocritical. I just do not see it in the example being pointed out right now. As you say, politics is about different levels of hypocrisy.

I do find it telling though that we are still talking about Clinton, or some are. She has no direct political power, is not in a position of power and is reported to have no interest in going after it. Yet we are worried about what a private citizen thinks on a matter like this.

Why do we care at the moment if she is going to bring the country together. Seems like the guy in power is doing a bang up job of tearing it apart while lying more than pretty much any previous president has (see a post I had some down on the matter).

That should be more concerning at this point than Clinton not being truthful anymore. Don't get me wrong. She is a liar. In my mind she is the definition of a politician. What we ended up with is both hypocritical, a liar and surrounded himself with a propaganda army of yes men that is in the process of using law enforcement to directly do the president's will.

But let's worry about Clinton still.

I went way off track on that, but it is just frustrating to me.
