Hillary Clinton probably considered it a bold, “new, new Democrat” approach to tell the country we should “empathize” with our enemies earlier this month, but the realities of the daily news make it seem more like timidity instead.
With the aftermath of the Sydney hostage crisis Monday and as word of the Taliban savagery in Pakistan spread Tuesday, with its ever growing body count of murdered children, mockery of Clinton’s Dec. 3 speech spread too.
None of it bodes well for the Democrats’ putative frontrunner for 2016.
Here’s a sampling.
Monday’s hostage crisis, today’s Taliban school massacre. Hillary’s going to get “empathy” thrown at her for 2 years. http://t.co/xWTchlAH3O

Open fire on a school, 120+ dead children. I know I empathize with these enemies… #ReadyForHilary

I don’t understand how Hillary or anyone else could “empathize” with these monsters.

@BiasedGirl She doesn’t. She’s not capable of empathizing with anybody. She just says stuff that she thinks some donor wants to hear. $$$

@BiasedGirl Liberals have a lot in common with our enemies. They aren’t big fans of America.

That’s true enough.
But for some reason the words “irresponsible and, frankly, naive” come to mind.
Hillary Clinton saying we should empathize with the people who just slaughtered a 140 children should be the end of any POTUS hopes. Period.
