Carried by a new high in personal popularity and broad approval of her work as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton closes out her diplomatic career with majority support as a candidate for president in 2016. Fifty-seven percent in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say they’d back a run by Clinton to succeed Barack Obama, vs. 37 percent opposed. That includes a broad gender gap – 66 percent support for Clinton among women, dropping to 49 percent among men.
Hillary, who has presided over a Middle East crumbling and turning militant Muslim, Hillary who has bullied Israel, Hillary who was at a wine tasting in Australia and thus could not testify as to Benghazi when the buck stops with her.....THAT Hillary? The wholesale stupidity of the American populace is sinking this great nation----they vote on perception, not fact.
The same stupidity that allowed the "won" to win re-election because we now have to check the box that we had a woman President. Her record nor his disdain for Israel will be a factor. Couple all of that with complete support of the MSM - why would any Democrat even think of it (hear that Mr. Cuomo).
It must not matter to most -- because we just re-elected a man who did the same thing -- but how could anyone vote for someone who stood over the coffins of four dead Americans and deliberately told a self-serving lie about the circumstances of their deaths? Vile.
The only good thing about Hillary is we know she wants Obama´s job. So in effect she is on our side - those of us who fear he thinks he´s got the job for life. If anyone can push him out the way, it will be Hillary. I think she´s the one with the original birth certificate.
One of her lines that will forever remain in my mind, "We know how to spend your money better than you do." She is probably more socialist than Barry, but keeps it well disguised. Only occasionally does she allow her true colors to show through.
Remember, she was already president once? Billary already had her 2 terms. Remember Billary Care?
Looks like the Julia zombies are taking permanent control of our future. No offense to the many brilliant and patriotic ladies here in LDotland, but repeal of the 19th Amendment seems more and more attractive every day.
I knew there was a reason I like reading #17´s posts. On the subject of PIAPS though, at least when the Bilary was in the WH, they cared about the polls a little bit. The current fellow could not care less. Apparently it is the same with some Congresscritters now. The crybaby in particular.
well, of course the American people love her. She´s a woman and a failure and the people relate to that. It doesn´t matter that she wrecks everything she touches: she looks lousy so equally lousy looking moms aren´t threatened by her, everything she does turns to dross but that´s ok because "she CARES and she TRIES" America is over. This is how people vote. Success is not important. What is important is, "is she every bit as much of a loser as I am? SHE IS! Great. I relate to her!" Democracy is wildly overrated.
The media didn´t even let the dust settle from the 2012 debacle before they started in on the next one. Here we go again. Don´t count her out. We have already seen what the American voters will stoop to.
Madame Pigankles has four years to hit the plastic surgeon, fat-farm, Commie Re-Education Camp and (hopefully) the Beauty Parlor before Herself releases the Flying Monkeys across the land to hypnotize the mall trolling, mouth breathing masses and wind up as a Pant-suited Presidentrix...God help us.
Well, I would have to say, after the 2012 election, never underestimate the stupidity of the American people. Also the voter fraud was through the roof and I believe will be even greater for the Democrats in 2016. I highly doubt that we´ll see a Republican as president again in our lifetime. We just can´t stop the "machine". I know Hillary looks pretty bad now, but I guarantee that in these next 3 to 4 years, she´ll have a lot of work done on herself, and people will admire how "great" PIAP´s looks. Gag me
This is a classic strategy by the MSM to get the American voters all charged up to vote for PIAPS as the first woman president. Don´t bother to check the details of the "poll" because those of us here at LCom know that it is slanted to make PIAPS look like the front runner 4 YEARS BEFORE THE NEXT ELECTION. That´s what they do. And it´s all designed to get conservatives and Republicans (they´re not the same) to start wondering who they can run to defeat her.
Expect a lot more of these types of articles during the next 4 yrs.
at the age of 73, I honestly see little chance of our beloved country remaining as the shining city on the hill, as President Reagan calling the U.S. We have higher levels of uninformed voters, legal and illegal, who are so uninformed, it becomes a parody of itself. Watch one or two Jay Leno jaywalking segments, and you will be amazed. Or watch Repo Game, where the person whose care is being repossessed for non payment, when given the chance to win full clear title to the vehicle if they answer 3 of 5 trivia questions correctly. You will be absolutely amazed at the ignorance out there. We cannot possibly survive. We cannot. And in a country where citizenship supposedly cannot be granted if the applicant cannot speak english, there are some jurisdictions where ballots contain all sorts of foreign languages, required by law. We really are doomed. And Hillary could be the final straw, the nail in the coffin, etc. She has been an absolute failure as Secretary of State. She would be a bigger failure as president.
Indeed, Hillary is responsible for all that has happened internatonally since Obama took office. She is a total disaster, a crashsite, a blowup, a trainwreck!! Her lack of recognition to the last Benghazi travesty should be enough to have her fired. Where is America?? It is simply put, GONE!!
I never would have believed it could be possible, but after Obama got elected twice, I would say Hillary is inevitable. I think this is why BJ Clinton was helping Obama -- Obama agreed to get fully behind Hillary in 2016 and use his entire corrupt machine to ensure her victory.
What better way to scare any remaining manufacturing enterprise out of this country than to have the prospect of either obama#3 or piaps nightmare #2? The list of Clinton dead bodies is well over 60 by now.This country must have more masochists than any other place on earth.
The way she handled Benghazi, then lied about it, will ultimately doom her election bid. This investigation is only beginning & she will be thrown under the bus by The One. Which is why her "husband" put their cabal of attys together for her the week of the attack. Her goals will soon be to stay out of jail, & live to charge a mil per speaking fee.
#38, she was doing the will of BO. However, this does not absolve her. If she found his policies morally repugnant, she´d resign... right?
Maybe this is why there are so many photo ops of her swigging the booze?
Oooo, #40, you make creeepy sense. Ugh. maybe even some kind of triumvirate or other perversion?
Does anyone remember the scene of Hill-of-Beans in Africa, early in her officialdom, sitting, well, sort of spreading out in her purple pantsuit, haggard?
She was asked a question by a young African girl which Hilly misunderstood, she thought she was asked what her HUSBAND would do... hah hah oh if she only had had an ashtray within reach. you could see her fiery eyes dart around the hut searching for one, as she leaned forward. Whaaaaaat? she screeched...
She, BO and much of the State and adminsistration are soleley repsonsible for Islamication of the entire ME, the explosion of mulsim fundamentalism, the horrific violation of human rights against women, children and non-muslims and more and more people being murdered in the region.
Yet, I have no doubt she will run and win. The very fact that she has not resigned or been fired after Benghazi indicates the administration, the Republicans and apparently a huge number of Americans do not care that 4 Americans were assassinated while serving their country under her watch.
There are too many lunatics who are still in love wtih Bill Clinton and the thought of him back in the WH makes them swoon. Her only role will to make patronizing speeches and fly around the world giving out American dollars to 10th world and despotic regimes. Much like BO has done since day one.
I would not be surprised if a nuke hit our shores and the brain dead masses would still vote for BO and then Hill.
Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
