"Campaign aides for Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton on Saturday roped off reporters from the candidate as she walked and talked with potential voters during a July Fourth parade in New Hampshire, sparking frustration from the press corps and outrage from the state Republican Party.
`Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate her obvious contempt and disdain for the Granite State`s style of grassroots campaigning,` New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn said in a statement. The use of a rope line at a New Hampshire parade is a sad joke and insults the traditions of our first-in-the-nation primary.`"
New Hampshire, the nation`s first primary, is a showcase for democracy at its best: Grassroots campaigning that allows candidates to mingle with regular folks, and the press an opportunity to ask probing questions of the presidential hopefuls.
Hillary Clinton is making a mockery of our democratic process, roping off the press as if they were cattle. God forbid one of the interlopers should get close enough to ask her a question about Benghazi, her emails, or her philandering husband.
Even Putin in Russia or Castro in Cuba couldn`t get away with Hillary`s manifest disdain of the democratic process, and contempt for the press.
It`s a sad indictment of our democracy that imperious Hillary is the clear Democratic front runner, although her primary challenger Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has been drawing thousands of fervent supporters at campaign events in New Hampshire.
Hopefully the abject humiliation that the media suffered at the hands of Hillary in New Hampshire will be the last straw, and they will stop treating her as the Second Coming of Mother Teresa.
I beseech the press to ignore Hillary, and instead cover the insurgent, populist and democratic campaign of Bernie Sanders.
The GOP clowns don`t pose a serious threat to Hillary; Sen. Sanders may be best bet to derail the presidential ambitions of this arrogant witch.
