The Real Problem
With Hillary´s Age

Atlantic, by Garance Franke-Ruta

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/4/2013 12:00:57 PM

Republican spinning that Hillary Clinton is too old to be president is the sort of bad messaging strategy you see when people are not coordinating with a campaign or a candidate, mainly because neither exists on the GOP side at this moment. What message do comments on age reinforce about the Republicans or their future nominee, except to send a tone-deaf signal to older women that the party thinks they are irrelevant? Let´s not forget that The Golden Girls, mentioned by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell in his dig against Clinton, was a show about elderly female retirees in Florida,

Age isn´t the issue, being an incompetent, evil, self-obsessed pig is what matters.

Atlantic was clever in selecting that photo of Hillary the Horrible. It hides her chipmunk cheeks and minimizes her wrinkles.

But women of her age know how tired they feel, and might give extra thought to voting for a fellow golden ager.
Th writer presumes all women will be in the etank for Hillary, like blacks are in the tank for barack. Perhaps that will not happen.

The country needs fresh new leadership, not the old ideas as represented by the democrats, as embodied by Hillary, Reid, Pelosi, and Karl Marx.

In short, instead of potentially alienating older women,

Garance appears to be very young (30´s?) ... I´m older than Hillary. I won´t be alienated. Neither will several other women I know.

We all think she´s too old. That´s the last of what´s wrong with Hillary.

Hillary´s age isn´t the proble, it´s her deteriorating health that is at issue. Remember her fainting spells followihg the September 11 terrorist attack. Rumor here inside the beltway is that she has suffered a few minor strokes, and has a serious drinking problem to boot!!!

Being a chubby leftist mackabroin with the lectern gracefulness of Sister Mary Elephant ("Attention class, attention class, cla--SHUUUDDUUUUPPPPP!") easily trumps age as a presidential disqualifier for the PIAPS. In 1981 Reagan turned 70 just three weeks into his presidency, but, of course, he was Reagan, who didn´t feel no ways tired and even if he had, he wouldn´t have let on about it.

Paradoxically, what might spare this nation a second consecutive total failure as president is three more bad years, not that I´m hoping that happens. Masochism is not a libertarian value. If the PIAPS manages to succeed Ogabe, the Baby Boom generation (born between 1946 and 1964) will not live long enough to see a rebirth of American greatness, which might well be gone forever. The hole the Left is digging for the nation gets deeper each day. Tragically, establishment Republicans are aiding the Left by hauling the dirt away instead of dumping it back into the hole and burying the shovelers.

Sorry, but Hillary looked old, tired and worn out when she was Sec. of State. She does not have the stamina to be President. They might give her a shampoo and haircut, dress her in nicer clothes and use airbrushing to her photo´s but there is no way that Hillary is capable of being President, it is just too demanding a job and she isn´t up to the task.

The problem with the former "Goldwater Girl" and 67th United States Secretary of State, Madame Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, has nothing to do with the fact she will be sixty-nine years old in 2016...The problem simply put, Madame Rodham-Clinton still lives in "darkness" believing, after all these years on the planet, that killing innocent children in their mothers´ wombs is "peachy keen."

EXHIBIT "A": Here´s what the Pantsuit Marxist from Park Ridge had to offer on March 27, 2009, upon receiving The Planned Parenthood Federation Of America´s "highest honor," THE MARGARET SANGER AWARD in Houston, named for a woman "famous" for wanting to eliminate "the unfit" from the human race......."I admire Margaret Sanger...her vision...I am really in awe of her."

Don´t fall for it! "Age" is the Democrat straw man argument. They are creating an issue that isn´t really there. It´s much easier for them to refute the idea that Hillary is too old than to argue against the corruption, dishonesty, and incompetence evident in her record.

The author of this wilted-lettuce screed is clearly too young to remember that the Democrats made age an issue when Ronald Reagan ran for POTUS in 1980. He was 69 years old in that year. But of course, he had also been elected as Governor of California, and those years gave him a great deal of executive experience - something Clinton has never had, nor will she ever. Being an appointed SoS pales in comparison, and that´s not even bringing into evidence her appalling performance as SoS. Those results speak for itself.

No. Mizzuz Clinton´s age is a non-starter as an issue for Republicans. Remember, please, how old the great Ronald Reagan was as President. The focus on Mizzuz Clinton should be her accomplishments in public office, which are non-existent. Where, pray tell, are the accomplishments? In the Senate, she was a space-filler, and as Secretary of State she travelled the world looking for a good hairdresser.

There should be one theme that disqualifies this incomptent loser for any kind of office "4 Murdered in Benghazi". Since we have NO DOJ, she will never be tried for the senseless murder of and for her failure to protect our US citizens in our embassy of which she was in control.

And there are actual people who want to elect her as our C-I-C over our military. The M-E must be over joyed with her possibly becoming prez. She will decapitate our military. And muslims so respect women s/o!

She accomplished nothing as S of S, so what is she going to us from 3rd world status to 9th world status.

For me age in not so much the issue, but mental health - all high ranking political officials, especially the Supreme Court should all have mandatory mental health tests that are made public. Way too many of past and current Supremes who are way too old are showing signs of serious mental problems...as well as a lot of those who have been in the Senate from the time when I was born.

And, finally, we know if Hillary gets the nod, it will be Bill running the show (which is why she has a good shot).

Agree with above poster that she has already had a face lift since resigning Sec of State. So she obviously thinks that her age is an issue. Personally, I think her judgment is the issue. In all the important decisions, she has shown a severe lack of judgment:

1. Whitewater - bad investment, bad ethics
2. Paula Jones - poor judgment in not settling
3. Monica Lewinsky - looked like a fool of a wife
4. Healthcare - plan much to complicated
5. Lost election in 2008 because she misjudged the competition
6. Re-set w/ Russia - got snookered
7. Egypt - interfering on the side of Muslim Brotherhood
8. Iran - no help at critical time, cowardice
9. Benghazi - no help at critical time, cowardice
10. Benghazi cover-up - lying

The woman is a bad decision maker. And since the president is "the decider" (to quote GWB), we need someone who makes the right decisions. She´s not that person. She is always wrong.

Who cares about her age. The Stupid Party is only able to attack looks and not actions. What a lazy bunch of old thinkers are running the RNC. I am sick of the lack of vim vigor and vitality(a good phrase my Mom always used) in Republican leadership. Boehner, McConnel and Rove represent the ´we got ours and plan to keep it´ wing of the old guard. They will not reform government. Our poor old country needs to have a new broom to sweep clean. Establishment old stodgy rulers are a determent to real progress and prosperity. They are so stuck on stupid the rancid smell of old ideas is stinking up the entire party.

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years.

He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010.

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media have been testing messages for her expected presidential campaign. The case for her will be built on four pillars: that allegations of her corruption are unfair; that she is highly accomplished; that she is above partisanship; and that she is a woman. The first three are dubious and the fourth will matter less than you may think. Do you remember Webb Hubbell, the McDougals, the missing Rose Law firm billing records, Travelgate, or Hillary’s surprise acumen at high-risk commodities trading? Super PACs and other groups will remind voters of all of these case

WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked.

Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
