It looks settled now; Hillary
will be president #45

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 7/31/2013 8:59:08 AM

It looks like we won´t have much to write for the next three years. The media, which knows all and tells some, has proclaimed Hillary Clinton the 2016 Democrat nominee. Who can argue? Joe the Delaware Gaffer? Nah? Clinton had breakfast with Biden this week to break the news. And lunch with Obama to get their stories straight about the lethal Benghazi screw-up. She assured him she won´t critically distance herself from him for another two years. Some of his campaigners signed on to the Clinton campaign-that´s-pretending-not-to-be--yet. And some senators profess adoration.

When given a choice between a Democrat(Shrillary) and a democrat lite(Christie) the lite loses every time.

And every time, a little more light dies in that shining city on a hill.

No, she WILL NOT be #45! I suspect she will not even run. When the truth of Benghazi comes out I even wonder if she will stay out of prison....

The media will be there to prop her up. If the GOP wants to have a chance at winning, it has to provide a viable, positive option. It has to have a healthy primary debate without candidates giving in to mud-slinging at fellow Republicans. That has already begun, unfortunately.

All this incestuous Democratic party mutual back patting orgy is actually quite amusing. They act as if all opposition to them is futile and hopeless. They seem to think that the Republican party is dead, or about to die. But there are powerful historic forces that are moving against them. First is shear voter fatigue. It always happens in the second term, and with only two exceptions in the modern era, the voters change parties after eight years, first with Roosevelt/Truman, and then with Reagan/Bush. And in both times the incumbent party was riding on the public good will after a long string of successes. Now the Democrats and Obama have no successes to brag about. The country is in dire shape and no amount of glad handing can cover it up.
Second is the fact that the Democrats are played out, old, feeble and devoid of fresh policies. All they can do is play the race card and the class struggle card. It is the Republicans that have new ideas, fresh leadership and attractive, rising young politicians. Add to that the fact that Hillary is a horrible politician with no accomplishments to her name, is awful on the stump, is getting old fast, and is developing health problems due to her excessive drinking. She will have a hard time even making it to 2016.

I worked the phones for the 2000 Lazio versus HRC Senate campaign and I realized one thing early on, women of all ages will vote for her. At that time I really thought the reason was simple, women were tired of men and men in charge...I still think that way...if she runs she will win

Benghazi truth most likely will never see the light of day. I suspect because you have Republican leadership involved with the reasons why the Ambassador was there in the first place and because we were most likely running guns. So the truth would hurt the Republicans and a few prominent members in the party.

Too old!!! The same tactic that prevented criticism of Obama will be use to defend Clinton. Instead of racism this time the accusation will be sexist and ageist leveled at opponents.

Still too early to call her the winner and because miracles can and do happen; the Republican Party just might be able to get their act together and run decent candidate that is not a Democrat in principle.

Hillary is not all that smart but she is ruthless. And the MSM will have her back. We cannot afford another candidate like the previous two, remember lame McCain? Too afraid to attack Obama, wimped out time and again. We must nominate a candidate who will fight like hell. Hillary has more baggage than Delta and our nominee must make sure Americans know about it.

Hillary plays dirty, gutter politics. We´d better have someone who knows how to (and will) fight back. And I for one will not support another weak, reach across the aisle moderate. There´s too much to fix and we need a president who is dead serious about fixing it.

And what does Biden have to say about this notion? I suspect all this talk may be a twisted lefy way of apologizing to Hillary for dumping her and going for Obama instead.

She was treated very badly by her fellow dems. Not saying she didn´t deserve it, but she was treated badly enough that Rush had to create Operation Chaos to help level the playing field for her.

She looks old and is the old way of thinking. The Republicans need to get their act together quickly and run a worthy opponent. If they (Republicans) run a slash and burn campaign like the last one they will loose again. I will not give a dime until someone strong and young emerges who looks like they can crush the Democrats.

If you have 2 unexplained falls in a 10 year period your doctor will diagnose you as probably being epileptic and prescribe very specific medications to you. This has happened to Chief Justice Roberts.

Hillary has had MORE THAN 3 such falls ~ usually explained away as her stumbling while drunk.

Naw, we saw her nod off at Ronaldus Magnus funeral. She wasn´t drunk ~ that was from being a diabetic who overdid it on the morning carbohydrates!

She is not running ~

Doesn´t mean she´s not raising funds to steal, but you know Hillary eh!

I take comfort in the fact that the "front runner" according to the press is seldom the one who wins the primary. Also, I notice that Bob Geldof and Harvey Weinstein have not decided who they will run against her this time. Last time they decided on Obama - after Hillary announced and she was getting ready to redecorate the Oval Office.

I’m Senator Lamar Alexander. Have you ever read something so obviously right that it made you wish you’d written it? That happened to me the other day reading Newt Gingrich’s book ‘Breakout.’ Newt was quoting technology expert Tim O’Reilly, who was talking about the way the government should operate in the internet age. O’Reilly was saying this: “The best way for government to operate is to figure out what kinds of things are enablers of society and then make investments in those things.

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.

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.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation.

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

GOP: Not just equal pay,

There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

President Obama and wife Michelle are back on the road again, this time in Texas to harvest more Democrat dollars for the looming November midterm election. The previously-scheduled fundraising foray was tacked onto Obama´s memorial speech Wednesday at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. Why let a nationally-televised shooting memorial go to waste when you can use such an official activity to cut the Democratic Party´s cost of political transportation on Air Force One for two fundraisers in Houston and another one today in Austin?

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.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

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

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

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.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant.
