Mitt Romney: Drop talk of Bill Clinton´s
sexual mischief if Hillary Clinton
runs for President

New York Daily News, by Joseph Straw

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/16/2014 9:57:22 PM

Washington - Mitt Romney told GOP pals Sunday to drop talk of ex-President Bill Clinton’s sexual shenanigans if wife Hillary makes her own White House bid. “I don’t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if Hillary Clinton decides to run for President,” the 2012 Republican nominee said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” citing the former First Lady’s own record, including stints as a U.S. senator from New York and as secretary of state. Romney also noted that the years of Bill Clinton’s presidency “were, by and large, positive economic times for the country.” The former Massachusetts governor added that Hillary Clinton

Comments:
Typical moderate response to the dRATS crushing use of skulduggery aimed at defeating him and any GOP leader like Sarah Palin. You be their friend while I get my hands dirty cleaning up your mess in the last election cycle, Mr. Romney. Sounds like a budding bromance with Bill. He's definitely given PIAPS a "present with these comments.

Sorry, Mitt, but it speaks to her character, or rather lack of it, and is therefore germane to the election debate. She was not the aggrieved spouse; she was the "fixer", doing whatever was needed to hold on to power.

A reply occurs to me. I think it was a loose-form poem I learned in college. William Carlos Wiliams? e.e. cummings?. I don´t remember. Some say it is doggerel, not worthy of serious study, but I disagree. To me it is a beautiful, succinct and heartfelt response to such as this direction from Mr. Romney. If I recall correctly (and my deepest apologies if I get anything wrong) it went like this:

How forgiving of Mitt! Loser. Although Hillary! probably was the cause of Bill´s febrile rabbit-style infidelity--how´d any of you guys out there want anything to do with that greasy-haired, broad-beamed, sticky-fingered termagant?--it´s a diversion, a side issue compared with her ideology.

Which is a roundabout way of saying that it does matter after all. Any Fortune 500 chief executive whose avocation was preying on interns would be terminated posthaste. Moreso than most executives, politicians are public figures, presidents most of all. They´re in your face, regularly. When a politician is elected, you not only get the policy, you get the stink, a real person with halitosis, dirt under his fingernails, body odor, Peyronie´s, sexual deviancy, a closet full of unmentionables, and a penchant to lie in an andante con bullfrog voice. Not for nothing was Bill Clinton dubbed Beelzebubba. But the old rake has a certain sleazy charm. Hillary! is about as charming as a spitting cobra. So she´s got that going for herself.

Here we go again.

Mitt is in the wrong field - or trying to be.

He does not understand politics. On the whole, that is probably a plus for his character. He is a good man.

He is a total and utterly hopeless doofus as a politician in times like ours.

He needs to get a hobby and stay away from politics. He is perfectly capable of losing another election. He seems to be laying the groundwork for such a defeat already.

He doesn´t get it - and he won´t get it. He is too good of a human being to get it. He needs to go away.

Mitt misses the point. He´s falling for the deflection the media and Democrats are throwing out there. Rand Paul brought all this up because of the phoney "War on Women" hackery the media and the Dems have thrown at Republicans. The Clintons should be toxic in such an environment, but they´re celebrated. Pointing out the current hypocrisy is not at all out-of-line, it´s necessary.

Not surprised that Mitt´s missing the point, most Republicans do as well.

The liberal Democrats are street fighters who successfully trashed Romney´s personal and business reputations before he even got up off his beach chair at his New Hampshire mansion and started to campaign.

When you are tangling with street fighters you have to fight fire with fire. As long as the Republicans keep playing the part of the prissy nice guy against the street fighter Democrats they will have little or no chance to win.

When Establishment Republicans make comments like Romney reportedly made concerning Hillary Clinton you have to believe that they really do not want to win the Presidency and are happy with maintaining minority representation in the Congress.

Bill Clinton is not running for office. Didn´t we already fight, and lose, this battle?

We need to concentrate on Hillary´s failures as Secretary of State and her collusion with Obama on Bengahzi.

We also need to accept help from whomever is willing to try to help us. How does it hurt our cause to have Romney give us advice? We can take it or not but his life has not been a consistent history of failure. Quite the contrary. He has succeeded in everything he ever tried with the exception of winning one election.

On Sunday, former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson revealed that she regularly received calls from representatives with the media monitoring group Media Matters for America with offers to help craft stories. On Friday, Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy said that CBS needs to respond to the charge that Attkisson was “targeted” by MMFA, which he said was an outlet dedicated to disseminating “propaganda.” “Keep in mind, Media Matters is a George Soros-funded, way left-of-center political group,” Doocy informed Fox’s audience on Monday. “And for a bona fide member of the mainstream media to be taking their

Most voters say ObamaCare will play an important role in their vote in this year’s elections, and over half are more inclined to back the candidate who opposes the health care law. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Monday. The new poll asks voters what they would do if the only difference between two congressional candidates is that one promises to fight for the health care law and the other promises to fight against it. By a 53-39 percent margin, more voters say they would back the anti-ObamaCare candidate. Independents, always a key voting bloc, would back that candidate by a 25 percentage-point margin (54-29 percent, with another

Washington - The US Supreme Court takes up a major case this week that could dramatically change how Americans watch television. The case involves a New York-based company that charges $8 a month to allow subscribers to watch broadcast television programs on their computer, tablet, or smart phone via the Internet. The company, Aereo, Inc., can keep its subscription price low in part because it pays nothing – zero – to the major broadcast companies for access to their programming. The broadcast companies aren’t happy about it. They sued Aereo, claiming the little firm is stealing their copyright-protected programming and

Trenton, N.J. - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been named a Father of the Year by the National Father’s Day/Mother’s Day Council. The Republican governor has four children ranging from ages 10 to 20. He often talks about them in public. Christie has joked that having dinner with all of them has given him experience in being yelled at, and he has boasted about having a rare family — one without video games. Christie attracted scrutiny in 2011 when he used a state police helicopter to fly to his son Andrew’s baseball game. He repaid the cost. The other honoree so far this year is shoe designer Vince Camuto.

There’s no good way to break it to you, D.C. license holders. You’re going to have to make a trip to the DMV, all 540,000 of you. Starting May 1, the District will start issuing REAL ID licenses that conform to stringent federal regulations, the Department of Motor Vehicles announced last week. Any driver’s license issued before that date will need to be replaced by Oct. 1, to enter certain federal buildings and by 2016 to board a domestic flight (alternatively, a passport can still be used). All other licenses, permits and identification cards issued by the DMV also are affected by the new regulations.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

"He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts. And that’s why,

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.
