NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- Hillary Clinton is not the only member of the Clinton family who is generating a good deal of buzz these days. The former first daughter, Chelsea, has been increasingly talked about in New York political circles. As Chelsea Clinton steps out more and more, speculation that she may be laying the groundwork for a possible run for office has ramped up.(snip)Despite Clinton´s growing role in the public eye, she still shies away from unscripted moments with the media. An aide to Clinton said she would not do any interviews after the event.
Comments: Oh please, she a clueless, stage managed vapid phony just like her old lady and is packing on the pounds like Madam Rodham as well. Major Barf Alert.
The Clintons, the Kennedys, and now the Obamas think they should be given whatever position they deign to take. We should bow down. They are annointed. I hope NY has enough sense to know they can do better.
Another Caroline entitlement Kennedy??? "I won´t answer that until I am in office, then I will disclose the rest of the documents you are asking for´! This ugly bore better produce a kid and just slink away, she is so stupid!
Oh, Miss Clinton, may I know your qualifications for running for office? At age 32, what are your accomplishments? You must have quite a resume. May I see it?
But why is it that you won´t do interviews? Could it be that you and Caroline Kennedy have something in common beside the obvious, having a famous last name to trade on? That would be that, uh, you know, uh, you´re both inarticulate twits.
Papa Web must be so proud. Where´s Chels´ hubby? We haven´t seen him in the picture lately. Another Clintoon ´marriage of convenience´? Chels and hubby come from a long line of convicted felon politicians, a match made in Hades.
"So often, our most vulnerable, our children, are not thought about in a coherent way," Clinton said. "Not only here in New York City, but in our national dialogue. And that was something I felt particularly, in full candor, over the summer, in our election season."
Really, Chels? You spent the whole summer, a-pining away over the poor chillun?..."in full candor," even?
Oh, I am most impressed. ´Tis a glorious thing to be so ... so ... caaaring.
Chelsea´s mom´s old mentor, the grimly righteous Marion Wright Edelman, must be revving the old "Childrens Defense Fund" political vehicle to help launch Chelsea´s career.
COLLEGE PARK, Md.-- D-Day arrived for Obamacare Saturday and it began with an 11-hour shutdown of the website. The system is functioning a bit better than before but is still terribly inadequate. Applications are in limbo -- many already initiated are stalled, lost or otherwise can´t be completed. Applicants eligible for subsidies must use the website, or HealthCare.org paper alternatives that can´t handle the volume and the system often can´t verify applicants´ eligibility for aid. Overall, the website still fails to complete the enrollment process for many who try. Website software to get insurance companies paid subsidies isn´t functioning and
President Obama is trying to work off some of the calories from the nine Thanksgiving Day pies on the White House menu with a game of basketball.The commander-in-chief is stepping out of the White House to play hoops at the FBI headquarters, according to a White House pool report. It´s unclear who the president is playing with. Obama, a big basketball fan, picked up a game last Sunday at the FBI headquarters after announcing the interim agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.
Conservative writer and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza isn´t sending any Thanksgiving good wishes to President Obama this year. The author of The Roots of Obama´s Rage started a Twitter firestorm Tuesday with this missive: "I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!" Trayvon Martin is the Florida teenager killed by George Zimmerman in 2012; Zimmerman, pleading self-defense, was acquitted by a jury earlier this year. Tweeted reactions to D´Souza´s included the terms "disgusting" and "vile."
Is the Obama White House airbrushing history? It was a hallmark of the Stalin era: Fallen Soviet leaders vanished from official photographs. Nobody accuses President Obama of such subterfuge (well, nobody except for those who believe he forged his birth certificate), but a change in longtime practice in the White House has raised questions about the integrity of images Americans see of their president. The White House has increasingly excluded news photographers from Obama’s official events and is instead releasing images taken by in-house photographers, who are government employees. These photos often appear online and in newspapers, even though they lack
A new study of methane emissions finds that the U.S. is spewing 50 percent more methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times better at trapping heat than carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere than the Environmental Protection Agency previously assumed. Several factors contribute to the accumulation of methane gas in Earth’s atmosphere, such as the burning of fossil fuels and leaks from oil and gas refining and drilling, but one contender stands out above the rest as particularly repugnant: cow farts.(snip)According to the new research, livestock’s noxious flatulence accounts for a large portion of the methane gas being released into the atmosphere.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford wonders if Barack Obama is "crazy" for the leftist policies the U.S. President is pushing. The crack-smoking Canadian has been battling a drug scandal, claims of sexual harassment and a string of embarrassing freak-outs before the press, but the Toronto politician laughed out loud about the mess Obama finds himself in. Come on, some of the stuff you guys are doing down there, to me, are you crazy?" Ford told FOX News reporter Jesse Watters for his segment on "The O´Reilly Factor" when asked about the Obama administration´s policy platform. "No, no, no, no, no," he
Electric cars lead our list of the cars and trucks that lose their value faster than average. Also ranking poorly are some big-ticket luxury cars, and, not surprisingly, older, lame-duck vehicles that are late in their product life cycle and about to be replaced.On a list of predicted residual values for 2013 models produced by ALG Inc., the bottom three examples are the battery powered Nissan Leaf; the Lincoln MKS, a more upscale, expensive cousin to the Ford Taurus; and the Mercedes-Benz CL Class, a two-door version of the flagship S Class sedan, which is about to be replaced. All
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
