Obama really said this Wednesday night: “I can say with confidence there has never been a man or woman — not me, not Bill, nobody — more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.” You don’t say, Mr. President? So why don’t we size up her, uh, qualifications, eminent as they might be, compared to some of the prior, lesser 44 occupants of the office. Dwight Eisenhower was the Supreme Allied Commander. Hillary ran the Bimbo Eruptions Unit. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. Hillary wrote “It Takes a Village.” Teddy Roosevelt
Well, Hillary Clinton took the stage after four days of Democratic triumph — the party staged what was even to these conservative eyes and ears the best, tightest, most interesting convention of our time — and pretty much stunk up the joint. Her speech was a Jell-O mold of a sort my Aunt Millie used to make — blandly gelatinous in flavor and texture with little pieces of boilerplate left-liberal policy suspended in it like peach chunks from a three-week-old can. I can’t think of another one of these events when the presidential candidate’s acceptance address ended up solidly in the

Ann Althouse writes a perceptive commentary (hat tip: Instapundit) on an aspect of Hillary Clinton that bothers me a lot, too: that wide-open-mouth/insane-elation thing with her face Specifically, she analyzes a still photo of President Obama onstage with her at the Wednesday night session of the DNC: (photo)She explains the really weird facial expression this way: …my theory was that she´s stuck making the best of doing appearances where she needs to look like the person who is intensely loved but she does not believe she is loved. The
Wearing a white pantsuit, Hillary Clinton plodded out on stage to accept the nomination that she had schemed, plotted, lied, cheated, rigged and eventually fixed a series of elections to obtain. Then she claimed that she was accepting the nomination of a race she had rigged with “humility”. Humility is not the first word that comes to mind when thinking of Hillary Clinton. It is not even the last word. It is not in the Hillary dictionary at all. But this convention was a desperate effort to humanize Hillary. Everyone, including her philandering husband and dilettante daughter, down to assorted people she
A federal appeals court has struck down North Carolina’s voter identification law, holding that it was “passed with racially discriminatory intent.” The ruling also invalidated limits the same state law placed in 2013 on early voting, same-day registration, out-of-precinct voting, and preregistration. The three judges assigned to the case — all Democratic appointees — were unanimous that the Republican-controlled North Carolina legislature violated the U.S. Constitution
Bill Clinton apparently fell asleep during Hillary Clinton’s speech Thursday at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Sitting in between Tim Kaine and Chelsea Clinton, Bill grabbed some quick shut eye while Hillary Clinton talked about ISIS. The former secretary of state was saying, “We will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalize young people in our country. It won’t be easy or quick, but make no mistake – we will prevail.” Apparently, Bill Clinton did not prevail over the desire to sleep.
When you read this, sip slowly, dust off the way-back machine, and think about those who have surfaced visibly to support Hillary Clinton. Including “retired” U.S. General John Allen (retired in 2012), who was previously brought out of retirement to lead President Obama’s fight against ISIS in 2014. In order to understand the scope of the relationships it takes understanding the full back story. Stay with it…. The question posed to the Tree House back in 2014 was: Why is the White House selecting a retired General John Allen, instead of a current commanding officer to lead Obama’s anti-ISIS efforts?
