Chelsea Clinton doesn´t close
door to public office

USA Today, by Catalina Camia

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 4/8/2013 10:23:20 AM

Chelsea Clinton has raised her profile in the last few days, which sparked the inevitable question about the former first daughter´s future: Will she ever be like Mom and Dad and run for office? Clinton, 33, essentially said "maybe" in an interview that aired Monday on NBC´s Today show. "Right now I´m grateful to live in a city, a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor, my president and my senators and my representative," said Clinton, whose father, Bill, was president from 1993-2001 and her mother, Hillary

Comments:
Hooray! There is hope for the future! And after her royal highness steps down - Jeb´s son to the rescue!Yay! These people are fabulous. No? Catalina?

It says much about our country when branding trumps substance.

And by the way, we stoop to the progressive´s level when we bring up looks or other irrelevant bits. With the left and their media looking for every excuse to demonize us we can´t afford to serve then softballs. We need to continue to make the contrast stark like the DC mall left cleaner after thousands of Tea Party folks were there.

How did she acquire such a huge net worth at such tender years, and a $10 million dollar home, when she has done nothing of any significance other than be employed at a hedge fund and marry more money? She has lived too much of her life in the rarified air of DC and NYC to have the slightest understanding of how hard others have to work to support her and others like her in their totally undeserved lifestyle. No thank you. Please, no more Clintons Kennedys or Bushes ever thinking about political office.

Talk about sick thinking!! The name Clinton is enough to raise the hackles on the backs of all who read this post. The daughter falls right at the roots of the parents when talking and writing about her possible future. Benghazi comes to mind and the "what difference does it make?" statement Hillary Clinton made in her sad attempt to lie her way out of what happened there. Chelsea has done nothing and said less about the political nature of her thinking. Her parents have shown Americans who they are, and what they think. It is about THEM and Chelsea is part of that.

Poor little old Chelsea. She grew up being taken care of by her doting father while her mother pursued her law career. Then she had to change schools and go to Sidwell Friends. Off to Stanford, then to Oxford where she learned to shack up with her boyfriend. She marries a young man with questionable family activities. Daddy gets her a job with a hedge fund for a couple of years. Now she´s ready to run for office if she can make a difference.

At least Bill worked his way up and Hillary practiced law. Chelsea has led a life of protection and removing the unpleasantries of life, kind of like the protected babies at Johns Hopkins. Tell Chelsea to call in 10 or 12 years and we´ll see if she had done anything worthwhile with her life.

Republicans let the Clintons slide after their crimes, and they come back to haunt us. Fill in the blanks: GOP let Andrew "HUD" Cuomo slide, let Chuck Schumer slide (collapsing WAMU bank, for one), let Al Gore slide, let John Kerry slide (now sec of state), let Jon Corzine slide, etc. So-called opposition party has had zero success in derailing the opposition, and they come back even stronger.

Jeb Bush’s tea party problem
Daily Caller, by Jamie Weinstein    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 3/4/2014 8:10:21 AM     Post Reply
If Jeb Bush runs for the Republican presidential nomination, he may face pushback from the tea party — and not just for the reasons you might expect. With Chris Christie faltering, the former Florida governor is reportedly calling major donors to discuss a possible presidential run. But tea party leaders, both nationally and in Florida, tell The Daily Caller that Bush would have trouble getting their support because of his strong backing of Common Core. The Common Core State Standards Initiative defines itself as “a state-led effort that established a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in

7 questions for Darrell Issa to

California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has recalled embattled former IRS exempt organizations division head Lois Lerner to testify on Capitol Hill Wednesday. Lerner’s apology for improperly scrutinizing and harassing conservative groups applying for non-profit status kicked off the IRS targeting scandal ten months ago, and Lerner has been stonewalling ever since (famously trying to invoke the Fifth Amendment the last time she testified but failing because she made a statement attesting to her innocence first). Her lawyer said she intends to “continue to assert her Fifth Amendment rights.” Since she already waived them, Issa

The constant mischief of the progressive left is hurting the nation´s morale. There are few areas of national life left in which they are not busy, and few in which they´re not making it worse. There are always more regulations, fees and fiats, always more cultural pressure and insistence. The president brags he has a pen and a phone. He uses the former to sign executive orders. It is not clear why he mentioned the latter since he rarely attempts to bring legislators over to his side. Who exactly is he calling? The most hopeful thing he´s done is signal this

In a move sure to reignite the IRS scandal that rocked the agency and the Obama administration last Spring, House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa is recalling disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner to a March 5 hearing, demanding that she resume her testimony before his panel. In late May, Lerner delivered an opening statement to Issa’s committee before invoking her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. The panel later voted that, in making that statement, in which Lerner declared she had done nothing wrong, the former head of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations division had waived her Fifth Amendment rights.

Examples of intolerance provided by the Times: “In New Mexico, a photographer declined to take pictures of a lesbian couples’ commitment ceremony.

KAMPALA, Uganda—Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Monday signed into law a controversial antigay bill, setting the stage for a showdown with Western donors and rights activists opposed to the legislation. Although the bill has won praise in Uganda, especially among religious groups, human-rights activists have decried the measures to curb what Mr. Museveni has called "abnormal" behavior. Hundreds of jubilant antigay activists took to the streets of the capital, Kampala, on Monday, shortly after the president signed the bill into law.

If parents don´t go, 6th graders won´t move onto 7th grade. Leslie Venokur, the co-founder of Big City Moms, called the idea "crazy" and "insane." She said that what is most concerning that the education commissioner and Board of Regents would develop the parenting guidelines.

Poverty and unemployment are at near-record levels, the economy is stalled, and a record 47 million Americans are on food stamps, yet aides for first lady Michelle Obama’s tweeted out a picture of her two dogs apparently dining at a table laid with crystal and china. “Bone appétit!,” the aides added to the insensitive tweet, using the language of France’s queen Marie Antoinette, who was executed by radicals in 1793.

The “Chris Christie for President” moment may already be over. Former allies are souring on him. His poll strength against Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical matchup has evaporated. Once-friendly media figures like Jimmy Fallon and Bruce Springsteen are mocking him, and their joint parody of “Born to Run” now has more than 4 million views on YouTube. If Christie’s appointee David Wildstein is telling the truth when he claims evidence exists that proves the governor knew about the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, and if that evidence is made public, then all the “Christie in 2016” talk is moot, because

Do you think Chris Christie will be able to enjoy the Super Bowl? Everything looked so promising. The whole sports-loving world’s fixated stare upon New Jersey. Plus, not insanely cold. And then a lawyer for one of the key players in the great bridge-lane-closing scandal drops a letter suggesting there’s evidence the governor knew about what happened before he said he knew about what happened. Back to Bridgegate! This comes on the heels of the saga about a New York City congressman threatening to throw a reporter over a balcony in our nation’s Capitol.

TOPEKA — A man who provided sperm to a lesbian couple in response to an online ad is the father of a child born to one of the women and must pay child support, a Kansas judge ruled Wednesday. Topeka resident William Marotta had argued that he had waived his parental rights and didn’t intend to be a father. Shawnee County District Judge Mary Mattivi rejected that claim, saying the parties didn’t involve a licensed physician in the artificial insemination process and thus Marotta didn’t qualify as a sperm donor, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

In terms of a potential presidential run, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is both hurt and helped by being out of office. Unlike current office holders, Jeb can’t hold the public attention and be credited with carrying the GOP banner in current fights with Democrats. He isn’t in the flow of the rat-tat-tat of political combat. However, that may also be to his benefit. He is not burdened by mistakes, missteps and potential scandals that befall contenders currently in office. He does not have to weigh in on every issue, nor does he have to cast any votes.

President Obama’s foreign

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

Bad Business: Apple CEO Tim Cook has told global warming skeptics to "get out of this stock." But in essence, he did more than that.

Politico reports that Marco Rubio is “seeking to rehabilitate his image with much of the GOP base” by falling back on “staunch conservative positions” such as a “more aggressive U.S. response to Russia in the Ukraine crisis.” I hope that denouncing passivity in response to aggression by our adversaries remains a staunch conservative position. Rubio explained that “many of my supporters maybe disagreed with me on immigration — and disagreed strongly — but they understand that I’ve been involved in other issues that are important for the country.” The concern, though, is not lack of involvement by Rubio on the right
