Why People Zone Out on Hillary
PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/19/2014 4:37:21 AM

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

Fox gave her 2 softball interviews and Greta is now solidly behind her.

The 30 seconds or so that Bret Baier featured on her wriggling around the Benghazi non-video was thoroughly vomitous. Her inauthenticity, phoniness, fakery and lying are perhaps just as off-putting as Obama. I guess the aging Boomer feminists and the Sandra Fluke condom beggars are still enthralled but I wonder if they have enough energy to push Princess Cankles over the finished line.

Baier did a good job. Van Susteren could barely restrain her admiration for Clinton.

People zone out on Hillary because she has no creds. She got where she is only by bring the wife of a president. She won the senate on that accomplishment, where she did virtually nothing before being appointed to one of the worst tenures of a US Secretary of State, before quitting that amid a scandal that will continue until the truth comes out.

Bret Baier´s interview was a big disappointment for me, not at all hard hitting like his interview of Obama. To give Bret some credit, Hillary did filibuster many of her answers so Bret ran out of time to follow up.
There was a lot of promotion for nothing IMO.

Under no circumstance, should Robert L put the words
"Capitalist" and "libertarian" on the same page with her disgraceful, lying Gang of Eight name! "Communist", "fascist", "socialist", fit perfectly. For the slightly squeamish, like Robert L, the words "collectivist" and "totalitarian", will not shock Robert´s friends.

The semantic disease is, that well meaning, even brilliant but word fearful people like Robert, still call these destructive commie propagandists the good name of "liberal", WHICH MEANS "FREEDOM" !

Bill and Hillary Clinton, in their 40 odd years of collaborating, corroborating, and occasionally in cohabitating, have honed and fine tuned each others ability to lie and than lie some more.

Bill is capable of floating a whopper even if it´s in the punch bowl. His jovial and slick, but believable delivery, allows him to launch a prevarication of preposterous proportions without stutter, stammer, or smirk. His nom-de-guerre, Slick Willie, fits him like a well tailored suit.

Hillary, to the contrary, identified quite correctly by William Safire as a "congenital liar", delivers a greater number of false hoods with abandon and all the finesse of a clanking and creaking civil war Gatling gun cranked by an Orangutan. (Who, by the way, would have his intelligence grossly insulted, if he spoke English.)

This hot air pair were the reigning co-champions at pulling the wool and spinning the yarn for their sheepish costumes to the masquerade ball.

And then, along came Barack Hussein Obama, who dethroned the king and queen with out even breaking a sweat (and all the while, he wore no clothes doing it.) Billary is vanquished and ValBar is the flavor du jour.

Maybe the rumor about P. T. Barnum uttering his famous adage concerning the quantity of candy on a stick after visiting a maternity ward in Chicago, is fact after all.

The zoning-out matters not a smidgin. Miss Hillary is clearly entitled to the presidency. I mean, put her self in her shoes - you´re the Smartest Woman In The World, yet all you get is hate, hate, hate from the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy, and just because you care about the children! Who wouldn´t deserve the presidency after that? No, when the time comes (and any serious opposition in the primaries is conveniently eliminated) everyone will rally behind Our Historic First Female President. After all, the electorate has clearly demonstrated its collective ability to judge wisely in the last 2 presidential elections. For it to wake up in time will not just take a village, it will take a miracle.

HillaryCare was the plan of a fascist so I wouldn´t say she has no ideology . . . she´s an autocrat who frustratingly as a politician has to convince democrats and socialists that she is one of them. Sometimes the strain is too great and she temporarily flips out leveling a blast or two at those who antagonize her (i.e. most anybody who doesn´t recognize her greatness).

They zone out because she´s perfected the art of saying nothing. Dressed in a strident shade of bright blue pantsuit, with down cast, darting eyes, and cheek implants that don´t naturally move along with her facial expressions, the PIAPS cleared the Benghazi air once and for all.
Paraphrasing follows:
Q. Was that before or after you spoke with Obama?
A. Well, I think it was before, but it could´ve been after...
Q. Did you speak with Panetta?
A. I spoke with a whole room full of officials. I can´t remember exactly who was at the table, but then some of the officials were on video-conferencing and others had phone connections.
Q. So was Panetta present at any of those venues?
A. You know, the fog of war makes all of this a little blurry for me...But I´m grateful for this chance to clear everything up for the American people.
Zone out.

People zone out because she is Hillary. She is the mousy wife of the guy who is the life of the party. The only true accomplishment (if you want to call it that) is that she managed to marry a political shyster. She has leaned from the master but she is lacking any of his charisma. People like her because they like him. They project their feelings of him onto her. Sane people, however, understand that Bill is an amoral political animal as is Hillary.

If the same people vote as voted in the last two presidential elections, plus a few million new foreign born citizens, she will probably be a shoe in, her book will be old news by then, and besides money will come from someplace to fraudulently boost up the book sales numbers with those books being handed out within Democrat constituency groups no matter if the reciepents can read or not.

Amazon customers rate it at 2 Stars - that´s 491 1 stars, and 205 5 stars. If you read the ones that rate it highly there´s no content from the book even mentioned - and they frequently admit that they are just there to counter the bad reviewers that "haven´t read the book" even though they have NOT read the book either. Progressives are mentally ill. However there are many critics who say they couldn´t get through it. If even the progs can´t read it, that IS bad. As to watching her on tv, aren´t we lied to enough by the WH? Why volunteer for more?

To me, Hillary always looks as if she had poor hygiene, I don´t know why, maybe because her hair often looks like it need to be washed.

The real question we have to ask ourselves is: do we want a president who will only be gaining more weight as the years go by. I say no. The haunches and thighs are already distracting.

Yes, and then there is that bore factor and the tendency to lie a lot.

One August morning nearly two decades ago, my mother woke me and put me in a cab. She handed me a jacket. “Baka malamig doon” were among the few words she said. (“It might be cold there.”) When I arrived at the Philippines’ Ninoy Aquino International Airport with her, my aunt and a family friend, I was introduced to a man I’d never seen. They told me he was my uncle. He held my hand as I boarded an airplane for the first time. It was 1993, and I was 12. My mother wanted to give me a better life,

The idea of pulling nearly all American troops out of Afghanistan in 2016 suddenly seems pretty lousy, after so much of Iraq has collapsed under a similar scenario. When President Obama announced his plan to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2016, U.S. intelligence said it could be done safely. Now, intelligence and military leaders are privately warning that the U.S. counterterrorism forces could be needed there for much longer. During the internal administration debate earlier this year over the way forward in Afghanistan, the CIA supported a plan to degrade al Qaeda to the point that America could withdraw

AUSTIN — A Southern heritage group defeated Texas on Monday, celebrating a court decision expected to force Texas to issue license plates adorned with the Confederate battle flag. A federal appeals panel ruled 2-1 that the Department of Motor Vehicles had violated the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ free speech rights and engaged in “viewpoint discrimination” when it rejected its specialty plate in 2011. The judgment rekindled a loud debate among those who say the symbol honors Confederate heritage and others who see it as racially offensive and hurtful.

How does one explain the plummeting poll numbers for Barack Obama? Most people would point to the disarray and consequences of ObamaCare, the IRS scandal, the border crisis, the collapse of Iraq, the VA scandal, the impotent reaction to Russia’s seizure of Crimea, chronic long-term unemployment, and a host of nonsensical distractions staged by the White House to distract from all of the above and more. Last month, polls showed a majority of Americans thought Obama lacked the necessary leadership for his job, and rated his competence below that of George W. Bush at a similar point in their presidencies.

This may come as a shock, but only 55 million years ago, our planet had no polar ice caps; in fact, it nearly became a steamy, runaway greenhouse world, with CO2 levels exceeding 2,500 ppm. Then, all of a sudden, something intervened, causing a shift. Atmospheric carbon dioxide began to drop, steadily generating today´s world, with ice caps at both poles. But why did this happen? And better yet, could whatever triggered this drastic switch be used to temper today´s climate? Good questions. But the answers lay buried deep in the Arctic, hidden to researchers.

A pair of lawmakers from Texas will introduce bipartisan legislation in Congress on Tuesday to speed up the deportations of tens of thousands of Central American children who have entered the country illegally across the southern border. Sen. John Cornyn (R) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D) say their bill aims to amend a 2008 law that currently requires the federal government to provide greater legal protections to young immigrants who attempt to enter the United States from noncontiguous countries. The legislation would rewrite the law to allow Central American minors be treated like those from Mexico and Canada, who can

Facing a torrent of state laws restricting access to safe and legal abortions, supporters of a woman’s right to make her own childbearing decisions have been forced to play a defensive game — trying to block enactment of the laws, and, when that doesn’t work, challenging them in court. An important hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday could begin to move the dynamics of the fight in a positive direction. The subject of the hearing is the Women’s Health Protection Act, a vital measure that would safeguard the reproductive rights of women all across the nation, regardless of where

A restless President Barack Obama has ventured out on an array of field trips, stopping at local hotspots when he travels and ambling around Washington, D.C. He’s dined on burgers, pizza, barbecue, ice cream and a Chipotle burrito bowl on recent outings. And last week, he shot pool and drank beer during a stop in Denver. White House officials say the forays into Americans’ everyday lives help re-energize the president and connect him with average folks. But with Mr. Obama’s legislative proposals stalled and his approval ratings sagging, the excursions also are aimed at reanimating the president’s agenda and providing

The Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal just released their 2014 Index of Economic Freedom. One of the surprising results is that the United States is no longer in the top 10 freest economies in the world. In fact, the United States’s economic freedom score has declined every year since 2008. From Heritage: The United States, with an economic freedom score of 75.5, is the 12th freest economy in the 2014 Index. Its score is half a point lower than last year, primarily due to deteriorations in property rights, fiscal freedom, and business freedom. …The U.S. is the only country to have

Why Obama won´t take

Does President Obama want to solve the border crisis? It depends on what the meaning of "solve" is. The president says a majority of the tens of thousands of families and unaccompanied children flooding across the southwestern border will be returned to their home countries. But his actions suggest that won´t really happen. Most of Obama´s $3.7 billion border crisis spending request will go to the "care, feeding, and transportation costs of unaccompanied children and family groups," according to a statement to Congress by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson. Even some of the costs that appear to be slated for the

Nineteen terrifying words from the Omaha World-Herald: The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade. Thus did the federal government dispatch an emissary to investigate a minor instance of Midwestern dissent. A quick recap for the happily uninitiated: The “controversial float” in question was one of many included in this year’s Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Neb. The entry, which featured a zombie standing on an outhouse marked “Obama Presidential Library,” was created by a veteran named Dale Remmich, and was designed, Remmich claims, to express the “political disgust” that he feels

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration.

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.

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
