When Will Hillary Let It Go?
New York Times, by Maureen Dowd

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/15/2014 3:03:27 AM

WASHINGTON — NO one wrote about blondes like Raymond Chandler. “There is the small cute blonde who cheeps and twitters and the big statuesque blonde who straight-arms you with an ice-blue glare,” he wrote in “The Long Goodbye.” “There is the blonde who gives you the up-from-under look and smells lovely and shimmers and hangs on your arm and is always very, very tired when you take her home.” There’s the pale, anemic, languid blonde with the soft voice. “You can’t lay a finger on her,” Chandler notes, “because in the first place you don’t want to and in the

Is it just me or is Maureen Down hard to read and understand just what she is trying to say?

I´m sure Maureen is almost as smart as Hillary so it must be me .

My feeling is that Hillary should let her idea of being President go and just shut up, enjoy her grandchild and her vast fortune and try to keep tabs on her wandering husband.

Then there is the frumpy and yet murderous blonde who would Arkancide you and anyone like you without as much as a ´Make it so.´ and still sleep like a baby.

Hill and Bill will push push push, but like 2008, Democrats are very receptive to someone else. Elizabeth (Fauxcahontas*)Warren is way too liberal. Biden?-let´s get serious. They´ve done the affirmative action thing and isn´t working.

Could be a good time for Republicans if they can get the right person to connect with voters who stayed at home last 2 times.

Although it´s hard to tell, I think Maureen was experiencing a residual hallucinogen episode from those hash brownies or whatever the hell she OD´d on as she tried to describe in her other recent article.

As for Hillary, she won´t quit until Bill tells her to because, despite her facade of independence, she still does whatever he tells her to do because she´s a political moron and being on continuous publicity yours gives the old man time to play with whatever floozie he´s with at the time.

So Hillary “could not have predicted” the success of Al Qaeda-inspired insurgents in seizing control of Iraqi cities.

Seriously, The Smartest Woman In The World could not see that would happen? Because it comes as no surprise to some of us.

In a word "NO!" She can´t change her spots. She is not a real blonde. There is nothing real about her. Her first love is herself; then, power, money, fame. Real American taxpayers? No. She lusted after Bill before they married. Does she love him? No. He was just a means to the end. She still clings to him because some people still like him; therefore, she needs him. If you love someone, you can´t bear to be away from him/her for months at a time. She is never home.

IMO what the Clintons want most at this stage is to be kingmakers. Enjoy power but none of the accountability. What irks them beyond reason is that fact that 0bama and his handlers don´t owe them anything and don´t give a rat´s a** about them. The best way to influence the 2016 nomination and the subsequent election is this Kabuki theater that the Beast is indulging in. Ultimately it is Ma Warren or Andrew ´Get out of New York´ Cuomo that they will back.

I´m sure MoDo was tickled that she had come up with the comparison between Queen Elsa and Queen Hillary, and wanted to bleed out her cleverness for the Great Unwashed to worship, but...get to the point Mo.

Hillary is a legend in her own mind. Being on the sidelines of politics for most of her life does not constitute "experience." The job of SOS was a token bone thrown to her by Obama in exchange for a boost to his token presidency.

As for Dowd, she sounds disjointed in her article because it´s almost an impossible task to write an interesting something about nothing without drifting heavily into fiction and fantasy.

Is there a more apparent case of media hype than Hillary? She is simply a woman of marginal talents and accomplishments but apparently of gargantuan ambition and the media elevates her to star status. Boring and passé. Please move on, NYT, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Time, Vanity Fair, People...... You, too, are quickly becoming irrelevant to the life the rest of us experience. Cover One Direction someone on Dancing With the Stars (if it´s still on the air) - they are more interesting.

Well at least she told the readers about the Clinton´s thievery of White House furnishings, and the obscene salary Chelsea was paid by NBC for her no-show job. I bet that most all regular NY Times readers have never heard those things before.
She even calls Cankles´ book a "yawner", while delivering her own yawner when she took the requisite gratuitous swipe at Fox News. Modo knows yawners.

14 Privateer nailed it directly quoting Dowd´s only worthwhile words. ,,,,,,,, the book is nothing!

This murderess Arkansiding Evita, Maw Barker, Bonnie,
can never be allowed to re-enter the White House, that includes the bizarre reality that impeached Slick Willie
would be getting a third term, if anybody hasn´t noticed.

Unbelievable ! Has one single fawning socialist press TV media person even questioned that this much publicized event is in actual fact, Bill and Hillary running for Co President AGAIN ?

It´s even sicker than speaking of Jeb running as another Bush family RINO again!

Two years to go!! Unlike redacted Obama, Hilary and Bill
both share a murderous history of death, fraud, drugs, crime, money laundering, bribes, cronyism, pardons, a virtual opera of chaos, that only needs to be set to music
to permanently disqualify them from any further communist style abuse against the good people of this great country.

After her self-made "broke" LIE, it´s now time to use all the technological tools, whistleblowers, every resource imaginable, and find all of their hidden, vast PLUNDER.
It wasn´t gained honestly, so it can´t be called wealth.

Two self centered women and neither is operating with a full deck. One pretends to make an even evaluation of the other who has always lived a life of extracting her husband from consensual and forced sex charges so she can tag along with the high rollers.

People disappear or die when Hillary´s in charge and her husband has so little regard for her opinion or presence that he indulged in oral sex in the Peoples House with young women, and flaunts his sins. He still lives the same life and they would separate if she didn´t need a husband.

She has become famous because Liberals think her behavior is normal and she is a good little wife for always overlooking the obvious. She isn´t an attractive candidate because She is dumpy and has no regard for her personal appearance or for the chaos she leaves in her wake. She hasn´t accomplished anything that matters.

In other words, she is the worst possible candidate a Political party could select. Since she is running as a Democrat, anything is possible and on the table. Look at the last two Democrat Presidents... Bill Clinton: Rapist, sex addict, liar and impeached.

Obama... worst president ever who was unlawfully elected and who has no regard for the Constitution or its Citizens. A Muslim and total incompetent. Currently he has eliminated all immigration laws and our nation is the laughing stock of the whole world.

Maureen Dowd... Incompetent liberal writer for the liberal NY Times. Wouldn´t know the truth if it hit her in the face.

Pot, meet kettle. Both vastly overrated. The only time MoDO is worth reading is when she gets very snarky. Hillary has been useless in almost everything she does. I thought, for a little while, as a Senator she was somewhat reasonable. But as SoS she was a disaster and her words and attitude when having to face her shortcomings show she has no business in higher office. She was "broke" in a year that they made $12M? While technically they started the year deep in legal debts because of BJ´s philandering they VERY quickly made money. Also, are you telling me a bank would refuse a mortgage to the ex-President? Really? The fact that she has the hubris to pretend that they were financially challenged to play to a political stage shouts as to the type of person she is. A lowlife, charlatan.

Thank you commenters, one and all. Sometimes, I can get more from the comments than reading the subject article. And when I see the byline Maureen Dowd, my immediate reaction is: yuk! Don´t care, don´t wanna read.

However, combined with Hillary, my curiosity was aroused ... but still don´t wanna read MoDo.

So, again, thank you commenters for filling in the picture.

Hillary Clinton and her media helpers , like Diane Sawyer are white washing the full story about her head injury.
Hillary says she´s all recovered from her concussion
and that she has " no lingering effects ".
As if it was nothing more than a mild headache.
End of story. But, there´s more to the story .
Hillary had more than a mild concussion.
After the fainting- which hasn´t been adequately explained , she suffered a concussion.
The concussion was severe enough to
require a follow up MRI weeks later.
That´s when a transverse sinus thrombosis was discovered in her brain.
This required 3 or 4 days of hospitalization and anticoagulant therapy.
The blood clot in her brain was a major incident , which is still ignored by the media and Hillary herself.
Her husband told an audience in May that Hillary
" had a terrible concussion " which required
" six months of very serious work to get over ".

Dowd is showing her hatred for Hillary while trying to protect herself by rambling.
Does bill really want Hillary to hold the superior status where she can completely destroy him because he is no longer needed?
One way she could run is as the ultra victim acting as the grieving widow who must carry on the Clinton legacy.
Remember when she channeled Elanor R?
If Bill suddenly dies late spring 2016 she is running.

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

To the dismay of Jon Stewart, Hillary Clinton did not make her big announcement on "The Daily Show" on Tuesday.

Attorneys allied with Democrats in opposing the suit said it´s the GOP that´s going too far by trying to resolve a political dispute by giving the question to the courts to decide. The lawyers appeared Wednesday before the House Rules Committee, which is considering legislation authorizing the House to file the lawsuit.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Tuesday night that it would refuse to allow its director of political strategy to testify Wednesday before a Republican-led House committee investigating whether the administration had illegally conducted political activity in the West Wing. In a letter to Representative Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the president’s top lawyer said that as a member of the executive branch the political director, David Simas, had immunity from being compelled to testify before Congress. Mr. Issa’s committee subpoenaed Mr. Simas last week, contending that the White House should not

Rupert Murdoch´s 21st Century Fox (FOXA.O) said it made a bid to buy media conglomerate Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) but was rebuffed. The bid was worth roughly $80 billion, or $85 per share in cash and stock, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters. Time Warner´s stock jumped 22.5 percent to $87 premarket as the New York Times reported that Murdoch was determined to buy Time Warner and was unlikely to walk away despite the rejection.

WASHINGTON — The White House likes to use a phrase of tingling adventure to describe the president’s recent penchant for wandering the country talking to people: “The bear is loose.” There are three problems with this unbearable metaphor: Barack Obama is not in captivity, he’s not a bear, and he’s not loose. As Voltaire said of the Holy Roman Empire, it was “neither Holy, nor Roman, nor an empire.” When our whippetlike president travels on Air Force One from staged photo-op to staged photo-op and then to coinciding fund-raiser to coinciding fund-raiser, encased by the White House travel behemoth and

Thanks to our friends at Washington Free Beacon, you’ll never have to watch a Barack Obama speech again. Reason being, this 76-second video shows you everything he’s going to say. He will: Tell you it’s great to be back in whatever town he’s in. Tell you to have a seat – twice. Appreciate the introduction. Love you back. Recommend building more roads and bridges. Say the economy grows from the middle out. Say the wealthy have to “pay their fair share.” Blame Republicans in Congress for everything. Encourage you to vote rather than boo.

President Barack Obama sent thrills up the collective legs of his supporters (and a few journalists) last week when he quoted Martin Scorsese’s The Departed during a campaign-style event. “I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy,” Obama said, referring to congressional Republicans. “It is lonely me just doing stuff,” the president continued. “I’d love it if the Republican did stuff, too.” It is worth noting that the president resorted to this bravado while he was ignoring calls from members of his party to see the border with his own eyes.

The road was melting. Extreme heat from thermal features at Yellowstone National Park, created by the active volcano below the park, caused oil to bubble on a road surface Wednesday and damage it. Park crews had to close and repair the 3.3-mile loop road that takes visitors past White Dome Geyser, Great Fountain Geyser and Firehole Lake. Blame it on the Yellowstone Volcano. Yellowstone National Park -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- sits atop one of the world´s largest volcanoes, and some of the thermal spots have damaged the popular Firehole Lake Drive. The park features over 10,000 thermal

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that

President Obama is known for being competitive on the basketball court, but he´s also apparently a cutthroat pool player. Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., told reporters at the National Governors Association meeting on Sunday that the president surprised him by beat him in two consecutive games. To add insult to injury, the two were playing at the Wynkoop Brewing Company, a bar that Hickenlooper co-founded. "You know I´ll tell ya -- the man is a shark," Hickenlooper told reporters, Time reports. "I was up a few balls. I felt pretty good. I was actually wondering whether how hard should I --

“So far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked every serious idea to strengthen the middle class.” –President Obama, weekly address, July 12, 2014 ~This has become a standard line in the president’s oratory, as part of making his case that he’s “acted this year to help working Americans on my own– when Congress won’t act.” The president started on this path on June 27, during a speech in Minnesota: “You know, sometimes I’m forcibly, you know, politic about how I say things, but I’m finding lately that I just want to say what’s on my mind.
