I can’t be the first to think of this but…..
Join me in my conspiracy corner for a moment.
Who benefits from Biden dangling a phony potential presidential bid in front of the politics-is-a-horse-race media for a couple months?
And what will the corporate media not talk about while they breathlessly wait for Biden’s decision?
Could it be Chevy?
Could it be Ford?
Oh I know. Dodge.
Hillary Clinton says she’ll take a firm position for or against the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, but only after it’s already been decided by the current administration or after she’s elected president in 2016.
Asked about her stance on the controversial project at a town hall-style meeting in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Clinton said that as the former Secretary of State it would be “inappropriate” for her to take a position because the review of the controversial project was initiated under her direction.
However, critics of Clinton’s statement-including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), currently her leading rival for the Democratic nomination-were quick to pounce on the opportunity.
“So bogus,” tweeted 350.org’s communication director Jamie Henn after the news broke about the candidate’s comment. “Clinton has taken positions on all sorts of ongoing policy issues.”
He also said the dodge is as much an issue of political leadership as it is about climate change. Invoking the Clinton’s campaign preferred social media hashtag, Henn added, “Come on, #HardChoices, let’s see some leadership here!”
The way I see it, this gives the corporate media a chance to reinforce their message of Hill’s inevitability and Bernie’s supposed un-electability.
Guess we’ll find out soon enough.
