Hillary Clinton Wins High Popularity,
Majority Support for a 2016 Bid

ABCNews, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/5/2012 7:20:27 AM

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).

In Kathleen Parker´s column this morning, she posed a hypothetical question about Hillary´s whereabouts and decided she "is off somewhere growing her hair."

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.

Talk about a wolf, in sheeps clothing.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 —

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.

Diplomacy downplay: Obama administration
minimizes latest North Korean nuke threat

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.”

Why Obama´s ´Best-Looking Attorney

The Atlantic, by Garance Franke-Ruta    Original Article

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.

With a Speech, Cardinal
Set Path to Papacy
Wall Street Journal, by Stacy Meichtry    Original Article

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul´s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn´t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial."

No, 80 Percent of NYC High School

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

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!

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
