National Journal Senior Political Columnist and Editorial Director Ron Fournier said that Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) attempts to distance himself Obamacare were “asinine” attempts to help Hillary Clinton on Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“It’s asinine…First, have they forgotten that we now all have videotape we don’t have to rely on Fox News that we can just on YouTube ourselves and see what he said? He’s obviously contradicting himself” he stated.
Fournier continued “he is trying to help Hillary distance herself from the president, but let me explain why that’s not going to to work. No matter what she tries to do, she can’t distance herself from the fact that she is basically running for a third Obama term, okay? The only way that she can overcome that is by coming up with her own agenda that is so big, so big, so breathtaking, so transparent, so effective and modern and authentic that it overwhelms his agenda, that it dominates his agenda. She can never distance herself from the agenda because she served in the administration. She’s a Democrat. Heck, Obamacare has its roots in Romneycare and in Hillarycare.”
