Waiting for 2016: Elizabeth Warren,
Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, Chris
Christie, Jeb Bush and David Petraeus

The Hill (DC), by Bernie Quigley

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/8/2012 10:23:11 AM

"To win, President Obama and Mitt Romney each seemed willing to say almost anything," said Robert Samuelson in The Washington Post on Nov. 5, Guy Fawkes Day. This is a good day for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who so hoped for an Obama win that he embarrassed himself during the tragic storm in New Jersey by virtually endorsing the president. And it would then be a good day for Jeb Bush, who sees himself as Christie's No. 2 in 2016. A Romney victory would have prevented that future for the Bush Dynasty. Clinton’s wistful and unlikely dynasty,

It's kind of fun to think about running against Elizabeth Warren on the Dem presidential ticket in 2016.

Seems to me Warren should be under indictment for a felony of representing clients when she was not legally to do so.
Krauthamer has already been pushing Jeb for 2016 along with Rubio. No to Rick Perry. He's not capable. Virtually has NO power in Texas. The Legislature has the power and all he does is to sign/veto bills, but usually goes with the legislature.

Warren, if the Dems candidate in 2016, will win. First Indian President of The United States.

Palin won't run.

Perry can't talk, when on the national stage.

Christy is a Dem who cries in appreciation when talking to union supporting multimillionaire pop artists, so won't appeal to Republicans.

Bush is a liberal Dem in Republican clothing.

Petraeus works for Obama. What would he run as? And how would that appeal to Republican voters?

This infernal quest for the next best thing in politics is about as stupid as looking for the Cracker Jack prize in a jar of peanut butter.

Looks like they're picking our candidate already, like they picked McCain. The idea is to keep the base home, and give it to Biden or whoever emerges over the next four years.

Hopefully it won't work.

I'm all for keeping Perry in Texas, since he is my governor, but not for the conventional wisdom that wrongly posits that he has no power, thus no executive experience. That talking point is as tiresome as it is wrong. A slightly weaker constitutional authority in the context of a large, populous, powerful state trumps a strongman type from a weak state.

Who the HE(2x hockey sticks) is this Quigley?

Let's dispose of his blather. Christie--will be gone into a Nobama cabinet. Warren--please. Perry--blithering idiot, thank God he's in TX without real power. Jeb Bush--another pro-illegal immigrant amnesty RINO, so past his prime it's not funny, and he's gained 50 lbs.

David Petraeus at CIA will be thrown under the bus on Benghazi-Gate, along with Hillary Clinton.

But I would like to roll out the carpet for Sarah Palin. I hope after being savaged by both left and right, she hasn't changed her fundamentals.

The Republican Party, and the USA, both died on 11-6-2012. So does it really matter who runs in 2016?

So many choices to run against PIAPS or Cuomo and get stomped by all the newly legal illegal aliens who will get to vote in 2014 and 2016. So who will the Republican sacrificial lamb be???

This country is dead. It will just take a few years for the corpse to rot away.

The only question is which language to learn before our new overlords take over -- Spanish, Arabic or Chinese???

#22, then Perry had no business being in the primary. He increased the ridicule level and diverted time and money. A real lapse of judgment on his part. If he's actually a stronger governor than others have indicated on L.dot, then I retract my prior statement. But as a 2016 candidate, no. Maybe on the Leadership Council which should be outside the main party.

But then again my home state had Christie the Fat RINO for a governor, so I should talk. I'd take Perry.

Didn't read the article, skipped most of the above posts. The last thing I want to think about now is future presidential candidates, of either/any party. The dems have about but a lock on future elections. We'll see even greater growth of unions in government and health care. Imagine the size of the pension deficits we'll be sustaining. As California now is, the USA will soon become. Then we'll just ramp things up until we become like Greece--and sheer anarchy will reign.

Romney was a good candidate and this was a very good election effort. Various poling companies loudly proclaimed the democrat turnout would be different this season but the after the election results the TV land reality counts seemed wrong. The real problem was not the voters, counters or who was watching the counters. A firm owned by George Soros and operated in Spain took care of massaging the numbers. They did not have to follow the pundit’s theories because the rascals made up an alternate pro-Obama reality.
The counters inserted facetious gross number and manipulated the results. (GIGO –Garbage in, Garbage out) No wonder the Dems weren’t worried. The results were preordained.

The company is called SCYTL. Look it up on Google. It is owned by George Soros and does many number counting jobs for the USA and the separate states.

Of course some people will deny fraud (with the flimsiest of excuses) but they denied the 1919 World Series, Fast and Furious and are currently trying to tell us that what we all know about Benghazi is the haze of war. “Walk on by folks, nothing to see here”

There was a haze of war with the elections and unless we adamantly protest it now, today, this election cycle, there will be no prospect for fair future elections. The count and recounts will always be phony but look perfect. (Just like Russia and Venezuela).

SCYTL, member the name.

The problem is. Who will investigate? Not the in the tank investigative reporters, the broadcast media, the NYT, the Department of Justice or the Attorney general?
We have lost our voting voice and power; we are now subjects of the regimen.

#33, I'm all in. Neocommunists have been working on and refining how to control Presidential elections since 1960. Their job is done. We will never see an honest election in our lifetime. Who is going to reform it? Bush had 8 years and the huge setup of the Gore experience. Didn't count many military votes then and ever since. Now they are so proficient with the manipulation that they can depress or disappear millions of votes and every commentator goes to explanations of the low turnout that suggest no evangelicals, etc.

Meek, career politicians don't engage congress in a righteous fury about denying active military the vote and they even dare to do it themselves as a representative did when she voted TWICE. Combine that with unrestricted immigration that is so far gone that ILLEGAL aliens present cases to US courts. Thank you churches who 'sponsor' these criminals, thank you corrupt employers, and sanctuary mayors and democrat run cities. We lost America bit by bit since the networks elected JFK.

Not only a TERRIBLE line up...but even my Dem list that I posted on the other thread looks more appealing!!!
But seriously, I do NOT want a bunch of the same old professional politicians who are all Washington insiders. They do NOT represent the people or our interests. I don't care if they are moderate, conservative or have an IQ at the level of Einstein or Honey BooBoo. I do NOT want any more insiders who are just in it for wealth and power and who have been playing corrupt games for years. I want a CLEAN person (I am not even concerned about how far right their ideology is anymore) who is HONEST, wants to get rid of corruption and believes in representing the interests of the people--not himself! But that is why Romney was defeated (with the help of both parties)...he wasn't an insider. He is not easily corruptable. He has integrity. He doesn't need more money or power.

I feel sick...

Patraeus should be on the block for Bhengazi along with Pinetta, Hitlery, an that pitiful excuse for a Commander-in-Chief Obama. The moment Patraeus even thinks about throwing his hat in the political ring, he will get hit square in the face with "Bhengazi". What goes around, comes around.

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund announced Saturday it has endorsed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for re-election in the May 20 Kentucky primary.

There´s a new word in play on the Scrabble game board: geocache. The word, a verb meaning to track down items as part of a game using a Global Positioning System device, beat out 15 other nominated words in an online fan vote to select the newest addition to The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary. It´s the first change in nearly a decade to the beloved board game in which players build words - and earn points - using alphabet letter tiles, said Hasbro, the Pawtucket, Rhode Island, maker of Scrabble.

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday

They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration is tightening the reins on cash handling to eliminate an embarrassing lack of oversight that allegedly allowed a low-level clerk in the Chicago Department of Transportation to embezzle nearly $750,000 in permit fees over a six-year period. In a memo to department heads, City Comptroller Dan Widawsky argued that “recent events have highlighted the risks associated with cash management” and the importance of “robust controls to manage” those risks. “We are the custodians of our city’s resources and you and your finance staff are critical to ensuring that such resources are safeguarded,” Widawsky wrote. “Each department head is responsibl

The legal case marks the first time that an arbitration panel will examine China´s contentious, and oft-disputed, claims to most of the South China Sea, one of the world´s busiest byways for shipping and a potentially rich source of oil and natural gas.

WASHINGTON – Lawmakers with strong ties to the Tea Party movement have gained a toehold in the U.S. Senate but it appears they might have difficulty expanding their numbers this year. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are among those associated with the conservative, grassroots drive that has proved influential within Republican Party politics in a relatively short period of time. But a review of upcoming Senate contests reveals that more establishmentarian Senate candidates maintain an edge – at least to this point – heading into the primary season.

Obamas´ income drops 21% to $481,098

New York - President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama reported an adjusted gross income of $481,098 for 2013 -- about 21% less than the year before. The bulk of their income came from the president´s salary, but the Obamas also reported roughly $100,000 in business income from Random House and literary management company Dystel & Goderich. The White House released the couple´s 2013 federal tax return on Friday. Their federal tax bill for 2013 came to $98,169, according to their return. That´s an effective federal tax rate of 20.4% on the First Family´s AGI. But because they already paid $117,277 in federal taxes,

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis said Friday he took personal responsibility for the "evil" of priests who raped and molested children, asking forgiveness from victims and saying the church must be even bolder in its efforts to protect the young. It was the first time a pope has taken personal responsibility for the sex crimes of his priests and begged forgiveness. Francis made the off-the-cuff remarks after coming under criticism from victims´ advocacy groups for a perceived lack of attention to the sexual abuse scandal and ongoing demands that he sanction bishops who covered up for pedophiles.

Meet the Clinton shoe-thrower
65 replie(s)

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/12/2014 5:03:17 PM     Post Reply
Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
