Looking Ahead to 2016,
Hillary Clinton’s State Problem

Washingtonian, by James Rosen

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/23/2013 7:54:45 PM

Take a minute to play communications director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run. Your task: come up with a 30-second spot to run in the early primary states about your candidate’s four years as Secretary of State. What part of the world do you start with? Iran? John Kerry now owns, for better or worse, the effort to bar the mullahs from getting the bomb. The “pivot to Asia”? The pushback on China in the Pacific has yet to take any visible shape beyond President Obama’s patented phrase. The “reset” with Russia? Really? Putin’s a pal now? Anyone putting together a brag

I don´t know of one thing that PIAPS has accomplished either as SOS or as a Senator or as FLOTUS (well, she ignored Monica´s actions). Therefore, doing any political commercial for her would be impossible or at least a giant lie.

How about 30 seconds of reminding Americans that her husband is Bill Clinton, you know, he used to be President, and people like him, well, most people, even some Republicans, and he´s her husband, and he´s a vegan now, sort of, and he tried to run interference between the Democrats and Republicans and mostly just interfered, and I´m going to be a grandma some day, to a child from Africa, the first black First Grandchild, and he´ll be gay. That´s right America, she´s got it goin´ on. Just ask her.

Sorry folks. The country elected a community organizer with no experience at managing anything. Twice. And they did it without our help. Why would anyone think they won´t vote for Bill Clinton´s wife - another leftist who will promise free stuff? Add the benefit of being female. She will be protected from criticsm because of that just like Obama is for being black. She even knows how to cry for the cameras. We need a very good candidate to overcome that.

All I know about her is she bumped her head probably from drinking too much vodka and was AWOL when needed to save lives in Benghazi.
Hillary and her boss are the worse of the worse as leaders of a once great nation.
She´s a full blown communist and will push the Obama agenda further toward our destruction.

She´s a perfect Democrat candidate. Can she shoot hoops, bowl 35, bounce a pitch at a baseball game, lie a blue streak, clutter the parks and our embassy´s with bodies, use spot cleaner on blue dresses and well you know the gig. At this point in time, what difference does it make?

As I see it, the only accomplishment of Hillary´s is her inability to protect her employees by the denial of more security when they requested it. That pretty much sums it up for me. It was a political decision made for that reason only. It was not a budget decision as testified in the committee investigations. There was money there. The denial came because she and Obama wanted to make it look like all was well in Lybia when, in fact, it was an extremely dangerous and volatile place. The additional security was denied for purely political reasons. Men died because of this one decision.

The lie she told the grieving families is a act that fully describes Hillary´s total lack of honor or character. That act along should prevent her from even considering a run for dog catcher. She is morally unfit for any office.

Hillary is unfit to be president. Her terms as senator or SOS should doom her candidacy. But I am concerned we conservatives will, again, be unable to unite behind the Republican nominee and hand the presidency to this awful human being. She will push the leftist agenda even farther than Zero and finish off this nation. It is in our hands. Here´s hoping we do every thing possible to stop her.

The MSM will have daily stories from Bill´s tenure as president and portray it as a return to the good ole days of a booming economy while "Happy Days Are Here Again" plays in the background. And the voters will pine for those days, being tired of working 2 or 3 part-time jobs just to get by. Benghazi? What´s that? Why that´s just a phony controversy!

Good old James Rosen avoided big attention to this subject. Was she co-president-complicit in the endless never investigated deaths of over 125 Clinton associates from Arkansas to Washington, including the men women and children ordered by the Clinton´s to be slaughtered at Waco?

The PIAPS has never accomplished anything, but she´s a good fundraiser. If they could get Fauxbama elected they can get the Hildebeast elected. Her entire base votes emotionally. They don´t care whether she´s accomplished anything or not; she´s a woman(!) We´re going to need a very strong candidate and a message that brings in the youth vote and the independent vote. The PIAPS will have no scruples and lots of money. What might save us is her whack-job hairdo´s and that voice, OMG, that voice.

If Hillary can avoid the utterly clueless strategy that lost her the 2008 nomination, then she´ll have no trouble being named as the Democrat candidate. She had no competition at present. All she has to do is show up.

She´ll be a very poor candidate in the general election, however, so unless the GOP picks a really horrible candidate, then Hillary will lose. I´d say it´s even odds that the GOP picks someone worse than Hillary.

If Hillary runs and through the fraudulent methods of the Dems happens to win, look for her Vice-Pres pick to be Bill. I have been seeing and reading way too many articles discussing the presidential terms of office but they all conclude this does not exempt a prior president from holding the office of Vice-Pres. THIS should set the alarm off against her, Big Time.

Expertise and Leadership.
Active First Lady, Effective Senator, Influential Secretary of State.

The above should be written and spoken simply, by different men, women, and ethnic accents -- implying but never stating the obvious need to throw Obama under the bus.

It´s a starter for a campaign that the ´MSM´ will gladly enhance.

James Rosen is correct that what I call the Benghazi Barbie aspect is a major weakness, but we´ve all seen the power of the press when it´s in full propaganda mode.

Whoever opposes this broad need only speak plainly and truthfully:

"Hillary Clinton is a proven liar (video clip of Hillary saying she had been fired on in Bosnia). She has a history of dubious activities on Wall Street (as headlines run of her turning $1k into $100k). She sneers at traditional America (video of Hillary snottily saying she could have stayed home and baked cookies).

“She sold out the US Ambassador and others at Benghazi, leaving them to die when help was ready at hand and only needed her order. She lied about it to Congress, saying the murders at Benghazi were about a video that nobody in the Muslim world even knew about. She knew better. She lied.

“Before Obamacare, Hillary Clinton had tried to impose it as Hillarycare. Fortunately she was stopped. But America means nothing to Hillary Clinton. This woman supports The Cause, which she served for four years as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State.

“The utter disaster of the Obama years would simply continue under Hillary Clinton until the United States that the world has known, the United States that the world has looked to for leadership and economic stability since the end of WWII, has disappeared. Her mission in life, as Obama’s, is to take down your country. And you with it.

“Do not let Hillary do to America what Obama started."

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

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.

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

Could the 2016 presidential election turn into a contest between a Bush and a Clinton? Political debate in America last week revolved around whether or not Jeb Bush, Florida´s former governor who is son or brother to two former US presidents – both named George – would jump into the 2016 battle for the Republican presidential nomination. For a nation that fought a war for independence from the hereditary power of the British Crown, in the person of another fellow named George, the concept of nominating a third Bush to run for the White House against a second Clinton (the former

Alert shoppers are accustomed to watching food prices go up and down. But a string of forces—from droughts to diseases—is raising the cost of a trip to the grocery store at a rapid clip. And it looks like it will be a while before the price pressure eases. Some of that pressure is coming from California—the source of roughly half the nation´s fruits and vegetables—where a long-running drought is forcing farmers and ranchers to cut production. After the driest year on record, large sections of farmland are expected to lay fallow this year as the Golden State copes with an ongoing water

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) on Friday called for a Senate hearing into the dispute between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over cattle grazing. Heller described as "patriots" the people who came armed to Bundy’s ranch after the BLM began to seize his cattle for refusing to pay grazing fees and fines that now total more than $1 million. Heller debated the ranch standoff on a Nevada television station with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who has called the armed Bundy supporters “domestic terrorists.” "What senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots," Heller said.

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

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.

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.

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
