Hillary Clinton´s Iowa problem
CNN, by Peter Hamby

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/14/2014 11:46:32 AM

Des Moines, Iowa -- In Iowa, the state that pulled the first block out of her wobbly Jenga-game of a presidential campaign six years ago, Hillary Clinton enjoys stratospheric approval ratings, well-heeled outside groups toiling on her behalf, and important political connections that date back decades. From a distance, she appears invincible once again, far outpacing her rivals in the polls and primed to redeem herself in the caucus state that has never been especially friendly to the Clintons, or to female candidates. Iowa has not elected a female governor, senator or member of Congress. In 2016, Clinton could finally put those

Hillary´s biggest problem will come if an Obama clone shows up who the liberal Democrats figure will be able to turn out a big black vote in 2016 that the liberal Democrats always need to win general elections. If Hillary were to knock out such an Obama clone in the Democrat primaries a good portion of the usual Democrat black vote could be insulted and stay home on general Election Day making it much harder for the Democrat ticket to win, unless that Obama clone ended up being the bottom half of the Democrat ticket. If the Obama clone ends up being an experienced governor he may not want to play second fiddle to Hillary for 8 years.

Hilary Clinton is incompetent. People need to realize that the next President is important to our survival. Look at the daily abuse of power by Obama. Yes, it can happen that we lose the republic. Get your heads out of your back sides.

OK, folks, this article is a Trojan Horse if I ever saw one. I only made it five paragraphs before I bailed, but here´s the gist of this hard-hitting "report:´

Paragraph 1: Iowa can finally put its "anti-woman demons" to rest by voting for Hillary!. Check.

Paragraph 2: The progressive base is "concerned" by her supposed "moderate" political views. Check

Paragraph 3: "Passion" is wanting, but she is "deeply respected" by all. Check.

Paragraph 4: "Most formidable front-runner" in history of Iowa. Check.

Paragraph 5: "Runaway poll favorite." Check.

And these are Hillary!´s "problems." Yeah, right. This is cookie-cutter propaganda concern trolling.

Ms Clinton´s problem is her past actions which in many cases were reprehensible. ( In my opinion ). She has to deal with all the "baggage" she carries along from her past.
The real problem is that most people you pass on the street could do a better job of running the Country than most politicians are capable of.

Every 4 years, I make it a point to re-read Hunter Thompson´s Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 1972. Early on, Ed Muskie was the shoo-in Democrat favorite, but he stumbled once people got a good look at him. Not that McGovern drew more votes in November than Big Ed might have, but the favorite isn´t always the way to bet.

I´m praying that the screech of the Beast will turn off people left and right. And, as #3 pointed out, who in Iowa are they polling to get ´stratospheric´ approvals? And stratospheric compared to what/who?

This week Liz Hurley´s ex-boyfriend Tom Sizemore made sensational claims that the actress had a secret affair with former President Bill Clinton. Sizemore has now dismissed the allegations as drug-induced ramblings, saying that he has never met Clinton and never gave him Hurley´s phone number. But while the claims may have proven false, the Daily Mail can reveal a striking resemblance between Hurley and Clinton´s former lover, Monica Lewinsky.

This week, a report from the Congressional Budget Office acknowledged that ObamaCare would reduce full-time employment by 2.5 million over the next ten years. And that is on top of news that 92 million Americans who could be working are not. What a devastating assessment for the unemployed or underemployed, particular millenials seeking to transition from internships and part-time jobs to career-building full-time jobs. Yet the predictable spin from the White House and major media outlets is that this is good news, liberating workers from the chains of employment. To quote President Obama, from the 2008 campaign, "You can put lipstick

"Don´t leave money on the table," Michelle Obama told students at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia this week, seeking to put as many people as possible on the receiving end of a government check. Nothing builds the Democrats´ voter base faster than the widespread ability to raid other taxpayers for support. How widespread? "Almost everyone is eligible for some form of financial aid, and all you have to do to access that aid is fill out this one little form. It´s so simple." Simple, as in one-stop shopping, all the better to build that constituency for OPM (other people´s money).

The IRS scandal is so bad that Democrats are unleashing total war in an attempt to beat back a full airing of the abuse. The old adage, "The best defense is a good offense," is all the more valid when the major media outlets are on their side. It is not necessary to have any actual facts to use as rebuttal for the indefensible; it is enough to simply throw a cloud of dust, so as to discredit any charges - in the eyes of supporters and media sycophants.

So let me get this right. Team Obama taxes millionaires who create jobs, while ObamaCare creates incentives not to work at those jobs. No wonder recovery´s so anemic. The policy here is to create fewer jobs and induce people to work less at those jobs. If my logic is correct, this runs counter to the basic principles of our economy and our country. I thought the American Idea had something to do with work, family and opportunity. But what I see from the Obama administration is policies that undermine these virtues. Here´s a contrasting vision.

Immigration: John Boehner´s reform "standards" are backfiring, perhaps putting his speakership in peril. Democrats will compare his "path to noncitizenship" to Jim Crow. The immigration reform hard sell is on. Boehner may appear to have dropped the issue for now, but a Silicon Valley-backed group launched a slick $750,000 TV ad campaign claiming that "House Republicans have a conservative solution to fix our broken immigration system" with "No Amnesty." In calling for "people who are living and working here illegally to come forward and get right with the law," the "standards for immigration reform" put forth by House Republican leaders offer a

Foreign Policy: President Obama´s "smart" diplomacy was supposed to bring the world back to our side after eight years of George W. Bush´s cowboy diplomacy. Instead, it has brought ineptitude and cronyism. ´America is back," the president crowed in his 2012 State of the Union speech. Based on what he had gleaned from world leaders, "opinions of America are higher than they´ve been in years." Two years later, such braggadocio sounds ridiculous. Indeed, the State Department under Obama is turning into a global laughingstock as he puts forward a series of incompetent political cronies for key diplomatic posts, showing disrespect for allies

Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork.

The largest and most comprehensive study of bird collision deaths ever finds that nearly 1 billion birds die in building crashes every year, a shocking number that has fans of the feather creatures urging construction companies to use new materials to stop the annihilation. The mortality study from over 92,000 records found that between 365 million and 988 million birds crash and die in the United States. The number easily climbs over 1 billion when reports from Canada are included. Only cats are a bigger danger to birds, killing as many as 3 billion a year in the U.S. “Our
