Are GOP attacks helping or hurting Hillary?

No eye-catching achievement at State. No signature doctrine. No strategy.

Those are just some of the buzzwords and phrases national Republicans are going to be using when describing Hillary Clinton's soon-to-be-out memoir "Hard Choices" and her time as America's top diplomat. Full story

At 6:30pm ET, Newt Gingrich and Stephanie Cutter are joined by Neera Tanden of Center for American Progress and David Bossie of Citizens United for a debate.

    In other words democrats are literally ignorant of the facts and just eat the _ _ _ _ they're spoon fed.

  2. Fox NEws says No

    FAux News said Hilary is too old to be President, but they supported McCain and loved Reagan

    Fox says Hilary can't be President because she will have a grandikid, Romney has 23 grandkids.

    Fox says Hilary has too much of a temper, but they support Christie who swears at reporters and nearly attacks people physically.

    it is neither hurting or helping. her decision to go for election is independent of any gop politics. her victory, if she decides to be a candidate is assured because women now prefers a woman president and nobody is more capable than hilary clinton. men are also fed up with corruption, rapes and murders in schools and on the streets, want a woman president to bring peace and tranquility within the country. clinton has a very good chance to win the election.

    I don't know about Hillary, but I think the Republican strategy of attacking everything is hurting Eric Cantor.

    Humm,
    I'm not sure speaking the truth is an attack.

    As a woman I was truly disappointed in the 2 women who debated on today's program. I don't catch the show very often and now I know why. Newt and David appeared to me to maintain a pleasant demeanor while attempting to have a conversation. Stephanie and Neera were very disrespectful and demeaning in their verbal and non verbal (facial expressions, etc.) communication. They very much dominated the conversation, talking over the men incessantly and it struck me if the men had conducted themselves in the same way they probably would've been labeled as sexist. Appalled and had to turn the channel. Wow, can you tell I didn't hear much of what they had to say. Speaks to the power of one's approach I think.

    Why are we listening to Newt Gingrich about anything at all? He has an every bit as equal, or more scandalous history than Hilary Clinton. You guys are just some more fluff with a "professional" covering. There must be someone who is a right -wing and/or conservative Republican with a brain that is not a criminal, and not necessarily a "famous personality". Come on – try a little.

    Just now realizing how nice it was when SC was gone!
    She is seemingly not capable of not talking over or interruption.
    Guess I will go back to watching the shows she is not on.

    Seriously another one on Hillary – When is it going to stop? – This lady is rotten to the core and this is from someone who thinks both parties stink. – I don't the liberal media or FOX, because all they both do is to try and continue to polarize and distract the American People, while they're puppet-masters are screwing us right down the middle.

    What ever happened to: "We The People" ?

    Why is the media so infatuated with this evil-unethical-disingenuous-dishonest-power-monger?

    Wake up America! – Who's been pushing so hard for her and why?

    Could it be that Free-Traitors and Foreign interests own and control our media?

    It's Hillary – Hillary – Hillary 24 / 7 / 365 – Hummm?

    We all knew back when that whole Monica scandal was going on, that she must have made a deal with the Dems and the Devil for promises of power in the future in return for her standing by "her husband" Bill's side.

    You know the problem in trying to elect good leaders for The United States of America has nothing to do with the color or gender of our politicians. It's our politician's, from both parties, lack of honesty and the lack of willingness to do right by the US citizens that they're elected by and should be representing.

    Hillary Clinton's interview on ABC with Diane Sawyer – What a puff piece promoting Hillary – Ha, Ha, Ha cutie cutie – This is sickeningly transparent! – What a shocking harsh no holds barred interview? (Sarcasm)

    It's obvious Free-Traitors = ABC = Foxconn = China = Our money and our jobs going, going, gone!

    The American People need leaders who will stop selling us out to countries like Communist China, India and Mexico.

    The American People deserve leaders that will honor the fact that they are elected by the Citizens of the United States of America to represent the interests of those citizens and the country itself and that They are NOT Elected By or To Represent the Global Market Place, Lobbyist, Foreign citizens or Illegal Aliens.

    Before Hillary Clinton runs for president, Americans need to remember that it was her "husband" that got us into bed with Communist China in the first place. – And how's that been working out for the American People and the Real American Economy?

    Clinton is the one who opened up the trade floodgates with Communist China and both Bill and Hillary were actively involved during their visit to China.

    Bill Clinton, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman nor did I have unethical trade relations with that communist Chinese government."

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are two of the biggest FREE-TRAITORS around.

    Hey you stinking Free-Traitors: The AMERICAN PEOPLE can see what's been and is still being done to them!

    And the Vince Foster incident and many others like it should not be forgotten. Hillary hasn't accomplished anything other than using the Monica scandal to leverage the Dems for future power.

    The American People need to ask themselves: Who's been pushing so hard for her and why?

    I truly believe that she is evil.

        Let's face it both parties are just doing the bidding of their masters, while lamely trying to look like they're trying to represent us.

        Wouldn't it be nice, if some of these puppet masters were conscientious loyal Americans who loved their country and cared about their fellow Americans enough that they would finally start pointing their lap-dog-politicians in the direction of doing right by the American People? Maybe that's delusional on my part – But if this doesn't start happening soon, the American people and the future of the country that we love is doomed.

        Unfortunately almost all of our politicians are a joke – Only it's not so funny, because over the past several decades, all they've been doing is screwing the American people, by stalling, spending, removing protections and allowing illegal aliens to continue to pour in and American jobs and industry to pour out, and all while collecting their American tax-payer funded pay checks, benefits and whatever else they get on the side from their various lobbyist friends.

        The American People need leaders who will stop selling us out to countries like Communist China, India and Mexico.

        The ONLY REAL FIX for our great country is to RAISE REVENUE, by Bringing Back Businesses and Jobs to TAX-PAYING AMERICAN CITIZENS.

        The American People need Our Leaders to start remembering that they are elected by the Citizens of the United States of America to represent the interests of those citizens and the country itself and that They're NOT Elected By or To Represent the Global Market Place, Lobbyist, Foreign citizens or Illegal Aliens.
