David Brooks predicts
‘a big Draft Hillary
movement’ for 2016

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/9/2012 11:12:56 AM

Regardless of whether President Barack Obama wins in November, The New York Times’ David Brooks says he expects a serious “Draft Hillary” movement in 2016. Appearing on Alec Baldwin’s WNYC “Here’s The Thing” podcast, where just last month George Will said that Hillary Clinton’s political career is all but over, Brooks pointed to what he called the Democrats’ “reasonably weak bench” as one reason to not count out the Secretary the State’s future White House chances. “First of all, I think the Democrats have a reasonably weak bench for 2016

Comments:
Ha ha ha...Brooks said Hillary would have done a better job than 0bama because she has a better personality. . . .funny stuff. The DemcRAT bench is empty except for the fat loud-mouth chick with the hygiene issues. My prediction: Romney wins in 2012 and if Hillary runs in '16 she will be the female Bob Dole.

In reality David Brooks has to be the most overrated, overhyped pseudointellectual ever...next to Tom Friedman and Paul Krugman of course

I did not read the article. Did Brooks mention that Hillary is the most humiliated woman in the world?

Did he mention that there are reports out this morning from a new book that further humiliation is in the offing in the form of a divorce request from the "Horn Dog" back in 1990?

Did Brooks mention that the second most humiliated woman in the world, Humma Weiner, works for Hillary?

Just wondering if David did his work thoroughly.

The democrats could forgive her incompetence if she were not so old and ugly-looking.

I am not mocking her. She does not have to be ugly. She runs around with straggly hair and no makeup. If you are in a senior government position, you have to try to look your best at all times. If you don't care about yourself, you give off the vibe that you don't care about much else.

This is not sexist. Guys are judged harshly as well. Think of all of the people who say that Chris Christie is off-putting because he does not take care of his body.

Hillary was globetrotting around the world lining up chefs for a cookoff while terrorists in the Middle East were fomenting their 9/11 attack in Benghazi. I think she jumped the shark when it comes to her higher office aspirations.

David Brooks is "stuck on stupid" in his thinking - always looking at the past, no fresh ideas, unable to visualize anything new. Ambitious DemocRATS will not stand aside for Hillary. Andrew Cuomo has been working on his resume for 20 years now. He'll soon find a way to marry that live-in blonde. Watch for the book, maybe something published with his father. Chuck Schumer loves a camera enough to run. But his wife makes Hillary look like a movie star, so she may drag (no pun intended) down his chances. What about Susan Rice? If she is a lesbian, that would be the perfect Dem candidate, covering all the bases: Black, female, gay.

Those trying to get the middle back will look toward somebody like Webb.
Andrew Cuomo has daddy issues that need attention.
Sibelius has tenticles everywhere.

So it won't be just Hillary.

By 2016 Hillary should just be getting out of jail for her role in Libya.

According to HillBuzz Conservative Politics, the entire attack was a plan by Obama to look tough on foreign policy. He was going to organize a possible "hostage" release using "The Blind Sheik " as a bargaining chip. Things blew up in his face when the "hostages" were killed instead.

The Obama administration lied and people died. Hillary was the SOS and will have to own it. No way she is viable for 2016.

Her looks do matter - either she looks like she just rolled out of bed or her make-up is spackled on making her look clownish. Four years from now I doubt it will have gotten better.

Dems don't nominate losers. Only Reps do that. Reps usually run the guy who's turn it is, the guy that last the time before but came in second--McCain, Romney, Dole... Dems always want someone new. Hillary will be very old, tired news in 2016. If they didn't want her in 2008, they won't in 2016.

So what if they have a weak bench. Dems usually put up someone you didn't expect a few years earlier. Who in 2004 thought Obama would be the guy 4 years later?

She is not half as good as N∅bama at reading prepared speaches.

But if she has to speak without a teleprompter, everyone is quickly going to remember that the only reason she ever got elected to anything is because she was Slick Willie's wife.

Besides, I am pretty sure that Andrew Cuomo is not going to stand by and watch his chance dissapear for ''the good of the party''...

Her Heinous wouldn't be any improvement over Mr. Potato Head. Both are inveterate Alinskyites, committed leftists without the least understanding of economic or strategic matters. Instead of healthy blood, a substance like subversion flows in their veins.

You should read Christopher Hitchens's No One Left to Lie To, especially the chapter entitled "The Shadow of the Con Man (Rodham's Last Hurrah.)" I'll let Hitch speak for himself.

"Mrs. Clinton has the most unappetizing combination of qualities to be met in many days' march: she is a tyrant and a bully when she can dare to be, and an ingratiating populist when that will serve. She will sometimes appear in the guise of a "strong woman" and sometimes in the softer garb of a winsome and vulnerable female. She is entirely un-self-critical and quite devoid of reflective capacity, and has never found that any of her numerous misfortunes or embarrassments are her own fault, because the fault invariably lies with others. And, spesking of where things lie, she can in a close contest keep up with her husband for mendacity. Like him, she is not just a liar but a lie; a phoney construct of shreds and patches and hysterical self-pitying, demagogic improvisations."

Quite so.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Thursday. "We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius," Kim said at the start of the IMF-World Bank spring meetings in Washington. "Warming by two degrees Celsius is going to have major implications.... 40 percent of the arable land in Africa will be gone at two degrees Celsius; Bangkok could very well be underwater at two

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression.

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
