Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 20, 2014

With the nation gripped by the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, seemingly every political leader has weighed in, from President Barack Obama to ideological leaders like Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. But there's one conspicuous exception – Hillary Clinton.

In the week since a police officer shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown, critics have noted that the former secretary of state and likely 2016 presidential contender has partied on Martha's Vineyard, signed books with celebrities in the Hamptons, and settled into a week of vacation on Long Island, but she has yet to say anything publicly about Ferguson.

A spokesperson for Clinton declined to comment again on Monday.

With a black man as POTUS, race is the LAST thing Clinton wants to touch on this far out of an election.

Poor timing for her to be mum on such a firestorm of a subject.

If there's a time for her to standup against and acknowledge the systemic racism in the CJS, now is the time.

Rand Paul has. Howard Dean has. Still waiting for B. Hussein Obama to do so. One would think it would be a good time for HC to get ahead of the curve, but no....she drags her feet. Which truly makes one wonder: does she want serious CJS reform?

If she doesn't, she is sunk. CJS reform, IMO, will become a top priority for voters in the next two years. At least, that is my desperate hope.

Hillary is probably preparing to go to Ferguson and resolve this herself.

She's waiting until Obama mishandles it so she can criticize his response then privately express her support to him.

"She's waiting until Obama mishandles it so she can criticize his response then privately express her support to him."

Probably waiting for her pollsters to come up with a bland statement that says nothing and offends nobody.

She is trying to find a way to blame it on a video.

OWS why don't you start a thread on it? This one is about Hillary not commenting on the situation in Ferguson. Moron
