Hillary Clinton: The New Coke of Presidential Candidates

 

Christopher Johnson at Midwest Conservative Journal brings us this election factoid:

 

Seems that during the recent campaign, Hillary Clinton spent twice as much as

DONALD J. TRUMP

Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records.

The president-elect, who confounded critics during the campaign by saying there was no need to raise or spend $1 billion or more, ended up making do with $600 million.

Clinton’s expensive machine tore through $131.8 million in just the final weeks, finishing with about $839,000 on hand as of Nov. 28.

Team Trump spent $94.5 million in the home stretch — from Oct. 20 to Nov. 28 — and had $7.6 million left.

The figures include all spending by the campaigns, PACs and party committees.

But still lost the election to

DONALD J. TRUMP

Which means that

DONALD J.TRUMP

will the next president of the United States.

 

Go here to read the comments.  Every ad man has heard this story.  It was the campaign of campaigns, endless money to push a new dog food.  The campaign was coast to coast, and involved the most creative minds in the ad industry.  The campaign was waged flawlessly, never missing a trick.  Only one problem:  the dogs hated the dog food.  In regard to Hillary Clinton I assume that her implicit campaign theme:  “Hey, you stupid peasants vote for me!  It’s my turn now!”, just wasn’t compelling even with a two to one dollar advantage.

  1. Towards the end of the campaign, there were more than enough TV ads for Hilary. It was all Trump said this, Trump said that.
    It takes a special kind of hypocrisy to bring up Trump’s 2005 conversation when Bill Clinton actually did worse things to women. No advertising can wipe that out.
    Trump was drawing huge crowds everywhere he went and the attendees really didn’t care if Trump read the teleprompter or said what he felt like saying.
    Obama aside, there is a real distaste for the Democrat Party outside of its strongholds in Chicago, the West Coast and the Northeast. Returning to the same ossified leadership proves they have learned nothing.

  2. Money is way overrated in political campaigns. The main drivers for more money are the consultants and sellers of advertising. This is especially true when the opposing candidate is a walking advertisement himself.

  3. My blood pressure hasn’t been this good since political commercials and debates started up. Actually, the absence of Hillary Clinton, in general, has been a healthy and refreshing cleanse, including mental health advantages..better sleep to name one. To find out liberals blew over a billion dollars dressing up a career pig, taking her to the show, and loosing is icing on the cake.
    Looks like religions won’t have to change their views on killing children after all.

    Bronze statues of the Benghazi four should be erected on the National Mall. A tribute and reminder…..never again a pig in decision positions… never Hillary.

  4. I can’t take credit for the idea.
    I read the proposal on the net three years ago.
    I’ll try to find it. It would serve two purposes.

  5. The only ones who liked the dog food were those in large cities like Boston, NYC, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, LA, etc.

    I don’t understand such people. We had some at work. One cried and pitched a fit on the day after of the election – a young millennial who never knew anything except Obama and liberal progressive feminism. Another – also millennial – has since the election refused to talk with me even though before the election we had many civil discussions on all sorts of things. Poor spoiled little brats. One wonders what kind of parents they had.

  6. Crooked Hillary spent $1.6 billion lying about President Trump because she does not possess sufficient actual achievements and qualifications to fill in a 15 second time slot. She and her geniuses apparently concluded that she couldn’t win on the issues. Ergo, it was 24/7 calumnies and detractions against President Trump.
    .
    She and Obama, arguably, are the best things that ever happened to the GOP, not to mention America’s gun manufacturers.

  7. “I don’t understand such people. We had some at work. One cried and pitched a fit on the day after of the election – a young millennial who never knew anything except Obama and liberal progressive feminism.”

    I may have made a permanent enemy at work the morning after the election. One of my co-workers, who could have sent an email, instead chose to have admin call 6 of us from our job duties to a large conference room–literally had us sit there for 20 minutes while she stood right outside the door literally doing nothing most of that time–then she came into the room and with what she thought was a captive audience tried to start having a fit and telling us how she had cried all night over the results of the election. Under the pressure of an overloaded work schedule & deadlines, I and another staff member simply could not take it. I bluntly pointed out to her that we were on state time to which she replied that she had an opinion and that she could express it. I told her that the state wasn’t paying me to listen to political opinions to which she restated that she could express her opinion. At that point another staff member asked her if we were done with the meeting which finally helped her realize that she was supposed to be working and that she was keeping an entire department from doing their work with her shenanigans. After all of that, she made a 30 second statement, again that could have been sent by email, and we were released. Why in the heck do people think I should care about their political opinions at work?
