    So Hillary turns Obama down for the Veep…..among all the ruses and feints of the left I tend to believe this one. The reasons are certainly plausible. Even though Bill Clinton was the most left wing president since Carter, and she was a driving force as the unelected “co-president,” she’s trying to cultivate an image of herself as a centrist/moderate….much the same as Bill did during his campaign. Voter’s memories are short and there’s always a fresh crop of college age voters who don’t know the past. Running as the Veep would tie her to Obama’s socialism for her own presidency bid.

    Further, if he loses…which would be less likely with her onboard, but it still possible….she’s tainted as a loser and end game on her political career.

    But….and this is being bluntly talked about already, she wants to be President in 2016. The press has been amazingly quiet on her tenure as Secretary of State–even though the “Arab Spring” has largely been neglected by the U.S., when a populist uprising could have been strongly turned in our favor, and maybe even changed the course of Mideast politics. Even more so, the war in Afghanistan, which was almost daily fodder under Bush, is now backpage news, despite the situation deteriorating.

    To be honest., being the SoS was nothing more than a bone tossed to her after losing the nomination to Obama’s out of left field candidacy.

    But; think about it for a moment. How many other women have done all that Hillary has done? First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of the United States for two terms, Senator for 8 years for New York of all places, and finally Secretary of State.

    Hillary is 64 years old; an age when most people are ready to give up the reins, retire, and write a book. If she wins office in 2016 she will be 68, only one year less than the “too old” Ronald Reagan. What else can she accomplish–or want to accomplish? But it’s obvious her eyes are on the prize, not only first woman president but PRESIDENT.

    I will not be surprised in the least if it turns out in some future expose that she was the force behind the throne the whole time for Bill Clinton–most people assume that anyways. Aside from imposing her leftist ideology Hillary only wants power–and nothing will ever satisfy whatever emptiness that drives her.

    I predict that whatever she may say publicly that she will instead be actively working against Obama–after all, a Romney/Ryan presidency demonized for four years by the liberal press will be much easier for her to defeat than a second term Obama–at which point she would have to face both another Democrat contender but also legions of voters willing to vote for anybody but another member of Obama’s party.

    Heaven help us in 2016.

    Anonymoose, your insight would seem to hold true. Why would, the “hill” hitch a ride to a falling star? Sweet 16 is what she is after,and the clintoon’s have the muster. After the last Obamite love-fest, the clintoon’s have a score to settle.
    I can’t wait for the blood sports in the other party to begin. It’s the iceing on the cake, if you like to see others eat their own.

      Four years will change a lot…….including her face. This tired old harridan will be even less palatable to the American public than she is now. Plus she’s ugly, hateful, vindictive, and just as cold as Captain Skidmark.

      Alinsky is still Alinski, and his accolytes, once exposed, have a tough time walking it back. Hillary is a longer-serving disciple than is Obama. She’s just more stealthy about implementing his (Alinsky’s) tactics. However, anything she might propose will immediately be measured against what Obama has tried and what the people have categorically rejected, and they’ll reject it again.

      Besides, even if Romney is elected he’ll have a tough time repairing the fiscal damage Obama has wreaked on the country in four short years. We’ll likely be broke in spite of his best efforts……hell’s fire, we’re broke now! Hillary’s solution is the same tired old claptrap as Obama’s. We’ll just SPEND ourselves out of debt. When government is sucking up all the credit, and borrowers can’t compete with Uncle Sam in the ‘money store’, when business has been taxed to the max and it still isn’t enough, Hillary’s biggest constituency can kiss the welfare check goodbye. Then they’ll be pissed.

      So either way……whether she was on the ticket or not this year…..she owns the current state of affairs as much as Obama. Win or lose, there will be insurrection and mob rule. And her complicity won’t wear well once thre rule of law breaks down. If I was Hillary (shudder!!) I think I’d slink off into the distant murkiness and hope no one remembered who I was.

      And take Huma with you, PIAPS……..you deserve one another.

    These Republican traitors talking to the media defending Obama need to switch parties.

  4. canary says:

    Hillary’s grinding dirty dance hitting major media. The pictures don’t show Hillary’s enjoying this and lack of reaction is not normal.

    Seriously, something else is wrong with Hillary behavior, or she’s come out of the closet. I am serious.


  5. canary says:

    Obama’s reaction in learning Paul Ryan chose as Romney’s VP pick. This Hitler spoof is pretty good; the ending is funny.


  6. canary says:

    Chelsea Clinton just announced she may go into politics.

    Chelsea gave the reason of her possibility winning an election is because she has voted in every election she was qualified and no one will be able to attack her like Carolyn Kennedy.

    Chelsea also feels she qualified because she is a teacher.

    Where else but teaching graduate classes at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health (and her special correspondence job for NBC.

    At first she didn’t want to because she was so annoyed at being asked her entire life, but helping her mom’s campaign made her enjoy the limelight.

    And Chelsea might have children because her mom is pressuring her.

    But, right now Chelsea is working hard teaching a Mailman Class. Chelsea Clinton is such another Vogue airhead that when she renewed her teaching contract with Columbia, she did not insist the name of the class be changed from “Mailman School” to “Mailpeople School” or “Mailperson School”.

    • Mithrandir says:

      I SAID THIS BEFORE on here, as 1 of the 2 universal truths of life.

      1. Slow, uncharismatic, unappealing, unattractive Chelsea Clinton will be ANOINTED to Congress in some hopelessly liberal district because of her name, just like the Kennedys.

      2. Bill Clinton WILL get the Nobel Peace Prize. It’s already been smelted and engraved with his name on it, just the date is missing.

      I said it, and now the trial balloons have already been released.

  8. canary says:

    School allowed to sway students to vote for Obama I kid you not.

    School day 1 required govt: Mitt Romney will send more of you to war and Paul Ryan is an atheist.

    Day 2. Lecture on abortion telling students the law will never change and a sin is a sin.

    description of the new required govt class

    “….The course includes a study of current political, economic & social issues confronting the American public in order to help students appreciate the ‘democratic system & to realize they need to be active, informed & participatory citizens.” end

    New school motto: “Change Society”

    so much for a law that says teachers have freedom of speech except to use children for their personal
    beliefs, or political beliefs. 2 days into school; and it’s too long to write, but you get the drift.
    And MSNBC is the current news of choice. God Help this Country.

    • canary says:

      The students were told that women have miscarriages all the time and having an abortion is no different.

      This is not government. This is intentional and methodical and the claws of the schools and teachers are 100 times worse than 4 years ago.

      Any suggestions?

    • Mithrandir says:

      Listen Canary,

      Who is more guilty? The mugger, or the police officer who stands and watches the crime and does nothing when they could have stopped or prevented it in the first place?

      The democrats have all these radical studies programs on campus: women’s studies, black/chicano studies, gay/lesbian studies, and on and on.

      Guess who allows this to happen? That’s right, Republican legislatures passing budgets for public universities. And also the federal government when Republicans are in control. Why in God’s name would Republicans be stupid enough to keep funding liberal radicals at taxpayer expense when they could shut off the spigot any time they wanted? Republicans seem to enjoy fighting the same old battles with new radicals every year. Smash the machine, and save yourselves the future headache! I call it, “The Theory of DUH!”

      The democrats open the borders to democrat mexican voters, and Republicans let them do it.
      Democrats let their voters defraud the nation in every election, and Republicans let them do it.
      Homosexuality, affirmative action, the list is endless.

      It’s a co-dependent dysfunctional 1 PARTY SYSTEM that will only collapse when citizenry gives up and stops funding it.

    heh heh. Think of all the dummies that donated to Obama for free airfare to lunch with Celebrity Michelle. Now att&t who caved to removing FOX has add donate and you can win airfare to meet Celebrity Obama! Like they’d really draw a number from a hat.

  10. canary says:

    Help. Does anyone have a good written piece on the fact Republicans were against slavery while Democrats held it up. Don’t worry about it being to long.

  11. canary says:

    Mithrandir thanks but I’m confused.

    “who is more guilty? The mugger, or the police officer who stands and watches the crime and does nothing when they could have stopped or prevented it in the first place?”

    I’ve fought since I was a child as my mother fought even though we were no longer in school. And it’s not just for our own children it’s for all. It’s for this country, but there are no fighters left.

    “Republicans seem to enjoy fighting the same old battles with new radicals every year. Smash the machine, and save yourselves the future headache! I call it, “The Theory of DUH!”

    I don’t enjoy it makes me sick. Not sure what you mean by smash the machine and save future headachs (add sick stomach and other ailments)

    They increase our property taxes every year and sometimes elections know one knows about, but the schools are broke. Federal stimulus added and the schools are broke. Except when it comes to building a new YMCA on a joint adventure for a select few of students that swim so they could make a swim team. You would think all students should be able to swim for free at least.

    It wasn’t like this til Obama was elected. We were known for our schools being conservative.

    My son knows I will yank if he doesn’t tell me what’s going on. I appease myself that it’s a teaching opportunity for his future for the rest of his life. This particular school is known as the suicidal school and it’s true. The Dead Poet’s Society again this year again?
    I told my son, that the preppie punk at private school should have gone out on his own and become an actor and not killed himself because his filthy rich daddy wouldn’t pay a fortune for acting school. Yet, they want you to feel sorry for him and glorify his act.

    I hope to give my sons the tools for his future in dealing with this. I was pretty surprised some of the things he bought into it, but I really opened his eyes and things ended up positive.

    Also, it’s the racial tensions during elections year. So, I’m trying to get things to show the truth on who fought to to abolish slavery as those little white crackers are to cowardly to speak out.

      I think you are saying it’s a lost fight. I would like to hear Republicans talking about vouchers etc. but not much is being offered.

    Hamas official: “Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, destroy the Americans and their supporters. Oh Allah…kill them all, without leaving a single one.”

    Following are excerpts from a sermon delivered by Deputy Speaker of the Hamas Parliament Ahmad Bahr, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on Aug 10, 2012.

    Ahmad Bahr: If the enemy sets foot on a single square inch of Islamic land, Jihad becomes an individual duty, incumbent on every Muslim, male or female. A woman may set out [on Jihad] without her husband’s permission, and a servant without his master’s permission. Why? In order to annihilate those Jews.

    Dreaded bacon of hate investigated in New York City

    “NYPD Probing Hate Crime After Bacon Found At Staten Island Ramadan Site,” from CBS News, August 20 (thanks to all who sent this in):

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are investigating an unusual bias crime on Staten Island.

    Muslims who gathered for prayer to celebrate the end of Ramadan in a city park found bacon scattered on the ground, CBS 2’s John Slattery reported Monday.

    With Ramadan ending this past weekend, Muslims celebrated the end of fasting with prayer. On Staten Island an outdoor service was held Sunday on a New Dorp football field, attracting some 1,500 Muslims.

    But before most of the faithful arrived for Morning Prayer, it was discovered that someone had scattered a quantity of raw bacon on the field.

    “This has been determined to be a bias event on the part of our Hate Crimes Task Force,” NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters, including WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb.

    “On a website associated with this celebration was some derogatory comments and at the site itself, three packages of raw bacon were found,” Kelly added.

    “This isn’t what America’s about. This isn’t about intolerance, our diversity is our strength and we’re encouraging people to embrace that diversity,” Awad told 1010 WINS.


    “This isn’t what America’s about. This isn’t about intolerance, our diversity is our strength and we’re encouraging people to embrace that diversity,” Awad told 1010 WINS.

    Dear Awad, You support those who want to kill Americans and your allah is powerless against bacon.

    Hello, friends! Here’s your Personal invitation to…INAUGURATION DAY; January 20, 2013…

    “Please repeat after me” intoned the Chief Justice: “I, Barack Hussein Obama, alias Barry Soetero, alias Barry Dunham, alas Barack Dunham, alias Barry Obama, alias Harrison J Bounel, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    “I, uh, Barack Hussein Obama, alias Barry Soetero, alias Barry Dunham, alas Barack Dunham, alias Barry Obama, alias Harrison J Bounel, do, uh, solemnly swear or affirm that I will faithfully execute the, uh, office of President of the United States, and will to the, uh, best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the, um, uh, United States” repeated Whatshisname, as a smattering of applause echoed around the windswept Mall.

    “I’m so proud of you…Barry” whispered First Lady Michelle, kissing the president’s cheek, as the Marine band crashed into the first bars of “Ee Mungu Nguvu Yetu”, the national anthem of the president’s homeland.

    “Hey, Harrison! Congratulations!” said Vice President Biden, shaking the Kenyan’s hand with his customary energy. “Great to have you on the team. Where you been keeping yourself, fella?”

    “It’s me – Barack” hissed the president. “Barack Obama. I’m not Harrison J Bounel”.

    “Oh? Then where is he? “wondered Vice President Biden.

    “Harrison J Bounel. Where’s he at? I want to meet him”.

    “There’s no such person! I never heard of him!”

    “Then how do you know?”

    “Ee Mungu nguvu yetu” the choir began to sing, their massed voices like the trilling of angels…

    “Ilete baraka kwetu
    Haki iwe ngao na mlinzi
    Natakae na udugu
    Amani na uhuru
    Raha tupate na ustawi.
    Amkeni ndugu zetu
    Tufanye sote bidii
    Nasi tujitoe kwa nguvu…”

    “Know what, Joe?” whispered the president, standing at respectful attention, with his hand across his heart.

    “About Harrison J Bounel. I heard he was around. You haven’t seen him, have you?”

    “No! No I have not! There is no such person as Harrison J Bounel! He doesn’t exist and he never did! Those internet rumors are untrue!”

    “Oh. I see. Well, if you say so”.

    “You tell him, Harry…uh, I mean Barry” said Michelle.

    Day 3 Government. School handed class registration forms to vote.

    Students were told George W. Bush stole the election and at that only won by 400-500 votes and that is why it was important for them to vote.

    This is not a current issue.

    It would be the last election of Obama.

    Acorn, congressman aid and others registering in two states and voting. Many Democrats voting many times using Disney names and dead people. Illegal Mexicans with fake IDs.

    And the last two elections where the military serving overseas risking their lives did not get their votes counted.

    I wish I’d have had this state law Freshman year. Not that it will do any good having it now. So, if I can sway a few votes that won’t make the election so close like the last 2 elections.

    God Bless America

    Alleged man who may have threatened Obama on stretcher video since they don’t describe or name him.


    According to this an other reports this could be a rush to judgement. I mean they what they considered materials to make a bomb with. This is the Secret Service they are going to do everything to make a case against this poor guy and we may never know the truth. Can’t wait to find out his name and religion though. But, we may not ever know that either. It will be top secret classified no doubt.
