Hillary in 2016? Not So Fast
New York Times, by Frank Bruni

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/5/2013 6:56:06 AM

Hillary Clinton of all people knows how political fortunes turn on a dime. But she must be puzzled nonetheless, and spooked, that over a six-month period when she made no big news whatsoever, her popularity took a double-digit tumble. A poll released last week by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal charted the decline. It found that the percentage of Americans who view her favorably had dropped to 46 from 56. The percentage with unfavorable views had risen, less strikingly, to 33 from 29. Here we go. The beginning of the end of her inevitability. It’s about time, because

Hill will look good until another shiny new candidate (like Hussein) shows up. The LOFOs aren´t paying attention

The drop is not puzzling to me. She has crafted one of the most dislikable personas I can remember ever seeing.

Hillary´s poll numbers don´t mean crap,it´s mostly name ID at this point and a lack of another choice. Hillary´s looked at by the left as another checklist item,the first black president and now the first woman president. Other than that,there´s no compelling reason to vote for her.The rabid breed of progressives don´t want her because she´s too establishment.
Blacks still feel stung by welfare reform and haven´t forgot it.The problem is the left coming up with a star quality personality.

The Clintons have some big money backers but they´re more conventional crooks.Obama´s donorship was from well heeled activist groups who have been paid back by Obamas crony spending.I´m not sure the Clintons can establish that kid of network.

Hillary deserves to be tied to Obama. Do that, and she will sink like a rusty anchor. She was part of the Administration that did nothing positive to end high unemployment, implemented a wretched health care law, and created an international climate in which our friends don´t trust us and our enemies don´t fear us.

Hillary is the establishment candidate. She has all the well tested campaign slogans ready to go. No excitement, no sizzle and hard to look at head on. Warren is the left´s version of Ted Cruz. New and exciting, ready to challenge the status quo. She doesn´t seem to be the brightest bulb in the drawer but they may actually be to her advantage in a Dem primary. No Sec of State has been elected President since James Buchanan. Go bake cookies Hillary.

I hope the GOP have learned from the last election, that we can´t be afraid to bring all the weapons they have and use them at every moment.

The dims will try to bring women´s issues to the forefront again. Time for us to call them on it. Are there no strategist on our side that know how to fight? Show how they are the ones that have used women the most.. just for their own purposes. Lets put a fork in PIAPS before she gets any steam.

I would like to have a candidate that respects and believes in the Constitution of the United States. Someone that believes in less government, accountability, fiscally and morally honest, pro-life and loves this country.

Hillary Clinton is not that person and I´m hoping so much that the Republican party will have a candidate like above paragraph.

On a personal note, Benghazi. On a national note, Obamacare. Will the electorate be excited about a white Obama? Will the Democrats start making the same mistake as the Republicans - nominating the next old person in line for the throne? We shall see. I quit predicting election outcomes after Obama´s unbelievable re-election.

HilLIARy is so selfish and ego-centric that she pushes out any younger viable dem candidate. She could care less about her party or the country. It is all about her and her long-established need to prove to her father that she could play like the boys - nothing more nothing less.

A woman will be the democrat nominee. Whether it is Hillary or not remains to be seen but the democrats have for years been setting the scene with the cry of the Republicans´ war on women. Depending on how Benghazi shakes out, will determine if Hillary is a viable candidate. Acts that would assure a Republican resignation are resume enhancers for democrats so unless Hillary is tied to Benghazi, I expect her to stroll to the podium in a pantsuit, a new hairdo, and having had some "work" done to accept the nomination with creepy Bill in the background standing by Web Hubbell´s daughter. The destruction of the country must continue unabated.

I don´t like Hillary. You don´t like Hillary. We don´t like Hillary and wouldn´t vote for her even at gunpoint, but that doesn´t mean that millions of loyal mindless, brainwashed "liberals", "progressives" lo-fo-no-fos wouldn´t.

They elected Obozo-Omuslimo, the worlds biggest fake, fraud and phone not just once, but TWICE!!

Hillary, Ozero and the Dim-Dem-Dhimi-traitorcats could strangle adorable, cute little darling lovable puppies on live TV ever day and night and people would still vote for them.

The Dems, "liberals" and "progressives" are 100% pure Teflon. Nothing sticks to them. They are in total control of our culture, media, educational systems and are continuously brainwashing our young and molding our culture into the Borg.

Read the letters from the NY Times readers who think Hillary is just swell and the smartest woman on the planet. They love her.

Not only that, there are lots of letters from readers who think that Elizabeth Warren is the next best or better thing, American Indian or woman to be the next POTUS even though she´s a complete dunce. Remember, she was reelected in Mass despite her absurd lies about being part American Indian.

There are even NY Times readers who think Biden would be just a great POTUS. I´m not kidding. Think about that if you can without retching or reaching for the booze.

One of the most intriguing and enigmatic questions of the 2008 Democrat nomination race is - how did the formidable Clinton personal destruction machine refrain from pulling out several of the skeletons rattling in the Kenyan´s closet? Who or what made Billary sit down and shut the f*** up? My suspicion is that it is the same forces that were confident from the start (correctly as it is turning out) that they could skate past Article II and written statements from 0bmam that he was Kenyan. That answer could shed some light on Hillary´s numbers today.

A stunning 46% of those polled lied and said they have a favorable view of The Beast.

This may cause The Devil to rethink his coming leap from Zero back to her.

I´ll tell you something, guns are great and we all ought to have one to protect ourselves and our families but I´m going to stock up on crosses. That brings up an interesting question, has anyone ever walked right up to Zero and shoved a cross in front of his face?

I love pointing out that Hillary was "inevitable" in 2008, yet she couldn´t even make it out of the primaries, losing to an unknown nobody named Barack Hussein Obama. The truth is that nobody likes her, and her only real achievement in life was marrying Slick and riding his coattails to the Senate and Foggy Bottom. And the only real reason why people would vote for her is to give him a third term in the White House. She´s certainly done nothing on her own to merit being elivated to the Presidency.

I remember Hillary saying during presidential primary, "Who do you want to answer the phone when that 40 am crises call comes in?"

Well, on her watch that call came from Benghazi. The answer was Ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 others left to die with no attempt to rescue them by Hillary, Obama or Panetta. She was proved right about Obama. And, according to her own criteria, she proved that she should not be President either.

Do you suppose Hillary could get away with that going for the minority vote? She will try anything to get elected.

"The hellcat had become a cool cat, wearing shades instead of thick glasses, the meme of all memes."

That was to hide her alcohol-soaked red eyes and her wrinkles. The most damaging part of her record is that she has no record. She accomplished nothing of significance as a senator and even less as SecState, unless you count the damage to our reputation.

I agree with #1. Hillary is just balloon juice to distract from the fact that the major dem players probably really don´t want Biden. Who under normal circumstances would be the logical one to run in 2016.

Biden is considered by most intelligent people to be nothing more than a joke. He would most likely be the dem equivalent to our Bob Dole. Except Dole was more intelligent and had experience serving in WWII in Italy.

Wanted poster with a contorted photo of the beast Evita.
Wanted for brutal assassination of the children of Waco within the first few months of her co-presidency. Wanted for the unexplained death of best friend, Vince Foster.
Wanted for over 150 more murders, suicides, accidents, unexplained deaths to be found on the widely circulated,
"Bill & Hillary Body Count List", also known as, "The Friends of Bill" (a play on the ID phrase of Alcoholics Anonymous). Wanted, a complete review of all fraud, theft, money laundering, illegal donations, bribes, larceny, banking rackets, stock manipulation, inside job payoffs, corruption galore. Once the avalanche of truth
concerning these two abominable co-fraudsters comes back out in the open, they are cooked, dead meat, rotten to the core. Obama´s terrifying damage to all of America
has intensified the scrutiny of our criminal elite leadership and has furthered her ruin, not helped it.

New Yorkers are prepping to vote for a mayor who shows up late for just about everything. I never trust people who think their time is more valuable than everybody else. I´m not so sure the Hillary brand will sell. She allowed herself to once again take a back seat to a man in ´08 who promised her a gig that she was unqualified to do. She should have stayed in the Senate.

#11 ~ there was no surprise about Obama´s second win. We had 60 million voters and he had 66 million voters.

The only really effective "Republican" voter registration drive in years was back in 2009/2010 and that was done by the TEAParty. They picked up a good 5 million new voters.

Romney could have sponsored a drive in 2012 but he spent his time with ´donors´ ~ talking about the 47%.

Remember, we are losing about 1 million Republican voters to death or permanent disability.

We used to have 64 million Republican voters ~ way back when George Bush ran in 2004!

That´s a blow out. I assume the race will be called in less than an hour. It is now 7:10. Tea Party is clearly poison in what was once a Red State.

The biggest problem is that the voters have very short memories and 2016 is a long way in the future. By then the dems will have a completely new ´revision´ of history. Conservatives will have no chance to get a word printed or repeated in the liberal media. The ´new´ story will be repeated so often that it will really seem like the truth. Hillary is old news today but the next few years will change everything.

Funny thing about we women, we don´t always do what you think we should or will do. We don´t always side with our sisters. Hillary needs to be very careful trying to play to the gals. We women, even our liberal sisters, have a way of sensing when a woman is giving us the business. We don´t like it when a woman rides a man´s coattails either. Whose will she ride? Big Bible Bill or the Barrackalie Kid?

Man held on $1 million bail

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

Obamas attend Easter services at

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

Presidential polls make race

The premature presidential polls have started rolling out and are consistent: The race for the White House is as much a fantasy as “Game of Thrones” — filled with as many off-the-mark, off-their-rocker relatives and pretender-contenders to the throne as any “Song of Ice and Fire": REPUBLICANS -Jeb Bush, Son of George the First, brother of George the Second -The Good: Last-name recognition - The Bad: Last-name recognition: Brother Bush’s illegal war and the collapse of the economy.

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees. The field of finance

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force. "People are in that head-space and in that heart-space. It´s that time of the year where people are much more reflective and much more open to connecting with

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

An 18-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were found dead of apparent gunshot wounds in a home in the South Chicago neighborhood, police said in Saturday shootings that left at least one other person dead and 11 more injured. For the two found shot to death, Chicago police were called to a home on the 8200 block of South Houston Avenue at 10:38 a.m., said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada. Officials are not releasing the name of the 18-year-old victim who lived at the home. Shot with him was Jordan Means, 16, of the 8100 block of

Once the province of activists and stoners, the traditional pot holiday of April 20 has gone mainstream in the first state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana. Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo called the Cannabis Cup at a trade center north of downtown, to 4/20-themed concerts at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater — acts include Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dog — to a massive festival in the shadow of the state capitol where clouds of cannabis smoke are expected to waft at 4:20 p.m. MDT Sunday.

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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

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

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
