Former President Bill Clinton and his wife Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were warmly welcomed when they walked on to the platform for President Obama’s inauguration. Their entrance may be more than just a show, however, as it could turn into a practice run for Hillary should she run for office in 2016. In addition to renewing the widely-reported speculation that she is the most likely Democratic presidential candidate after Mr Obama finishes his second term, it was also only her second public appearance since her health scare. Mrs Clinton released pictures when she went back to work
Face lift is not working well, she is still a hag and he is creepy looking. The dems will not win with these 2 but then we thought flapears would not win another term. Fraud will be massive and gingrich should go far away and shut up - with his baggage, he is not wanted.
The RNC needs to get sensibly engaged - now. Gains during the 2014 mid-terms should be easy. Get Rubio on the road - California, with its soon-to-be Hispanic majority. Today is day one of the second term; the opportunities will soon abound.
Here´s waht we do - We start ruining Hillary´s plans today. We fight fire with fire - we give them an even stronger dose than they handed out to their opposition. The Lord knows, we have tons of ammunition - we just need to use it and lob it like Cruise missiles in her direction day after day until she is reduced to a sniveling pile of burned up cinders. I´m done with being a sweet old lady.
#10 is on the money-- America has allowed the sanctity of life to disappear, the rule of law to become a laughingstock, and we are now half amusement park, half patriots fighting for what we once knew was that shining city on a hill.
God is sovereign, and He allows--even ordains the fall of great nations that turn from Him--not unlike the Jews who were swept into exile, eventually dispersed to foreign lands.
Mann cannot turn it around, only God in His mercy and grace if we truly deserve it and if it is in His sovereign will.
Seems most people have a greater hope in the political system than I do. Each passing day brings even more despair in what this country has done to itself than any future hope the system could bring. These creatures dominating are politics now are just a reflection of our polluted culture and the indoctrination of our latest generations. It´s up to the individual now, and then, the locality and states. Move to where you´re safe with your own.
What is with these people and all that money, but can´t manage to look decent ? Shillary can´t even bother to touch up the gray these days. Keep in mind that in four more, she will be close to 70 years old.
What will Hummma do when she resigns ? Go back to the old country and share secrets ?
This is my heartfelt opinion. All the trouble started back in 2000 when George W. Bush, through incredible alignment of the stars, shot to the top of the heap with very little cred compared to Dad, who labored for years in the trenches.
And what did George W. Bush do with that golden opportunity? He sought to solidify the legacy of George W. Bush rather than groom a successor, which would have helped his party and the nation.
Don´t get me wrong. I have read Dick Cheney´s book and consider him an outstanding American. But he was not an understudy, waiting and learning for the day when the presidency would be his.
Why should the election of 2008 have been a contest between two newcomers to the national stage? The GOP could have had a seasoned veep out there. But, no. And now we live with the result of that decision.
Four years in politics is a very long time. Biden and Hillary Clinton are already looking old and no doubt they will be a lot more older in four years. Besides neither one of them is a shoe in because the Democrats are apt to come up with an Obama clone. You have to remember that in order to win national elections the Democrats need a big black vote. If some Obama clone were to run and then get knocked out of the nomination by either Biden or Clinton in the Democrat primaries, there is a good chance that enough black voters would feel slighted and stay home on election day resulting in the Democrats loosing the general election. So you have to figure that from now on the Democrats are always going to need a black candidate on their ticket.
I fear that despite her appearance, age and now, recurring illnesses (real or imagined), that she will receive the nomination, and likely win to have another "historic" election of the first woman pres., cumulative white guilt, black debt for electing BO + continuation of exploding entitlements, celbrity status of her husband (liberals, feminists, college students, illegal immigrants, are itching to have him back).
Even though Biden, as VP is supposed to get the nod, I believe that the more powerful Dems will be way too nervous to let him loose on his own to completely make a fool of himself and the party.
Sorry to disagree with so many posters, but the Dems and media (same thing) don´t care if a Democrat woman looks or is old. She will be talked up as the smartest person in the world after Barack as they help prepare her to beat any Republican out there. And, the stupids of the world will buy it.
We cannot assume that Biden will serve full term. Health issues, for ex, could lead to his resignation in 2015. Person picked to replace him would then be logical front runner for president. Could be Hillary, Andrew Cuomo, Corey Booker or fake squaw, Elizabeth Warren. Not sure Senate would confirm the Mooch if Obama nominated her.
There´s knowing what you have to do and then there´s actually doing it. And the results of a new survey suggest the health-care reform law may be falling short on both accounts among the uninsured—the group Obamacare is designed to help the most. The findings of the survey by the Transamerica Center for Health Studies suggest that Obamacare´s goal of providing affordable health insurance to millions of Americans faces widespread inertia. Although more of the survey´s respondents knew about components of the law compared with a prior survey over the summer, not many of those polled are enrolling for coverage
A mild snow dusted New York City this morning, transforming ordinarily grumpy commuters into grumpy commuters who were also cold and wet. And while frigid winter weather continues to batter most corners of the country, it´s still a distant cry from just-in temperature readings from Eastern Antarctica, which recently experienced the coldest day in recorded history. Just how cold is cold? According to new NASA satellite data, the region hit a bone-chilling -135.7 degrees Fahrenheit (-93.2 degrees Celsius) back in August 2010, shattering the previous world record set at the Russian research station in Vostok, Antarctica, on July 21, 1983
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. -- The victim of a vicious knockout attack in New Jersey is speaking out for the first time. He was cold-cocked, and hit not just with a fist, but with a glove with hard plastic knuckles. Two of the four attackers are still on the run. "All of a sudden, I was trying to watch my back and these two came around front and punches my face," the victim said. The 36-year-old restaurant worker does not want his name or face on television, and who could blame him? He still has headaches from a concussion and six
Sears stock plummeted Wednesday as news came out that Edward Lampert, its stubborn billionaire chairman and CEO, had to surrender majority control of the 120-year-old big box retailer when investors in Lampert’s hedge fund pulled money out. With no end in sight for Lampert’s quixotic turnaround efforts, it’s time to question whether there’s any way to save Sears as long as he remains in charge. (Snip) Lampert began at Sears with the ill-fated $12 billion merger with Kmart in 2005. Sales have declined for 27 straight quarters and the company’s stock is down over 70% from its high in 2007.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has no system in place to prevent fraud when individuals apply for tax credits under Obamacare, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The IG said in an audit released Tuesday that the IRS has no plan to manage, monitor, or mitigate fraud risk when processing premium tax credits available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “The ACA Program has not yet completed a fraud mitigation strategy,” the audit found. “It is important for the IRS to thoroughly consider fraud threats and risks that could impact new ACA systems.” Politico reports: The
Around 100,000 Americans successfully signed up for health insurance in November through the troubled federal online marketplace, HealthCare.gov, a person familiar with the preliminary data confirmed to ABC News. The figure reflects a surge in enrollment as software and hardware fixes to the site were made over the course of the month. In October, only 26,000 people could successfully enroll in Obamacare plans, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. "We´ve been working 24/7 to make improvements, and more consumers are successfully shopping online and enrolling in a health plan each week," Health and Human Services Secretary
NEW HAVEN >> The jail cell death last weekend of Yale University professor Samuel See, known as a brilliant writer and rising star in academia, has shaken up the tight-knit college community. Now adding to the mystery of his unexpected death are apparent connections between the online profiles of See and several escort service websites that include a cache of sexually explicit photos. At least four websites advertising male escort services included a phone number connected to See. The website Ryan Cochran Escort Services includes the same phone number listed on an order of protection filed against See in September.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
