Do we want another Community Organizer in the White House? That is exactly what we will get with Hillary Clinton. You haven’t had enough of her failed foreign policies? Why we are struggling not to have a landslide election this November? By now it should have been sewed up.. According to the polls, we are very close to losing several seats that we must win. Here we go.
Clinton’s connection to Alinsky has been the subject of speculation for decades. It became controversial when Wellsley College, by request of the Clinton White House, sealed her 1968 thesis from the public for years. Conservative lawyer Barbara Olson said Clinton had asked for the thesis to be sealed because it showed “the extent to which she internalized and assimilated the beliefs and methods of Saul Alinsky.” Clinton opponent turned Clinton defender David Brock referred to her as “Alinsky’s daughter” in 1996′s The Seduction of Hillary Rodham.

Late last night, the Washington Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman unearthed previously sealed correspondence between Hillary Clinton and former radical Chicago activist Saul Alinsky. Shortly after, some reporters wasted no time in trying to downplay the story by mocking it. They questioned or failed to see why this was important, yet trumped up trivial stories in comparison about Mitt Romney’s “lost years” during the height of the 2012 presidential election.
In May of 2012, POLITICO’s Glenn Thrush published a story titled, “Mitt Romney in Massachusetts: The lost years.”However, almost the entire article deals with quotes of people talking about Romneycare and his time at Bain Capital — elements and stories of Romney that almost every single person who follows politics knew about at the time due to the mainstream media’s constant, relentless hammering.
Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveals new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development.
Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.
A 23-year-old Hillary Clinton was living in Berkeley, California, in the summer of 1971. She was interning at the left-wing law firm Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein, known for its radical politics and a client roster that included Black Panthers and other militants.
On July 8, 1971, Clinton reached out to Alinsky, then 62, in a letter sent via airmail, paid for with stamps featuring Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and marked “Personal.”
“Dear Saul,” she began. “When is that new book [Rules for Radicals] coming out—or has it come and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation?”
“I have just had my one-thousandth conversation about Reveille [for Radicals] and need some new material to throw at people,” she added, a reference to Alinsky’s 1946 book on his theories of community organizing.

I looked for a short clip and came up with this. Longer videos are out there, and worth hearing. The GOP might learn something.
