Hillary Clinton Wins High Popularity,
Majority Support for a 2016 Bid

ABCNews, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/5/2012 7:20:27 AM

Carried by a new high in personal popularity and broad approval of her work as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton closes out her diplomatic career with majority support as a candidate for president in 2016. Fifty-seven percent in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say they’d back a run by Clinton to succeed Barack Obama, vs. 37 percent opposed. That includes a broad gender gap – 66 percent support for Clinton among women, dropping to 49 percent among men.

Hillary, who has presided over a Middle East crumbling and turning militant Muslim, Hillary who has bullied Israel, Hillary who was at a wine tasting in Australia and thus could not testify as to Benghazi when the buck stops with her.....THAT Hillary? The wholesale stupidity of the American populace is sinking this great nation----they vote on perception, not fact.

The same stupidity that allowed the "won" to win re-election because we now have to check the box that we had a woman President. Her record nor his disdain for Israel will be a factor. Couple all of that with complete support of the MSM - why would any Democrat even think of it (hear that Mr. Cuomo).

In Kathleen Parker´s column this morning, she posed a hypothetical question about Hillary´s whereabouts and decided she "is off somewhere growing her hair."

It must not matter to most -- because we just re-elected a man who did the same thing -- but how could anyone vote for someone who stood over the coffins of four dead Americans and deliberately told a self-serving lie about the circumstances of their deaths? Vile.

The only good thing about Hillary is we know she wants Obama´s job. So in effect she is on our side - those of us who fear he thinks he´s got the job for life. If anyone can push him out the way, it will be Hillary. I think she´s the one with the original birth certificate.

Talk about a wolf, in sheeps clothing.

One of her lines that will forever remain in my mind, "We know how to spend your money better than you do." She is probably more socialist than Barry, but keeps it well disguised. Only occasionally does she allow her true colors to show through.

Remember, she was already president once? Billary already had her 2 terms. Remember Billary Care?

I knew there was a reason I like reading #17´s posts. On the subject of PIAPS though, at least when the Bilary was in the WH, they cared about the polls a little bit. The current fellow could not care less. Apparently it is the same with some Congresscritters now. The crybaby in particular.

well, of course the American people love her. She´s a woman and a failure and the people relate to that. It doesn´t matter that she wrecks everything she touches: she looks lousy so equally lousy looking moms aren´t threatened by her, everything she does turns to dross but that´s ok because "she CARES and she TRIES" America is over. This is how people vote. Success is not important. What is important is, "is she every bit as much of a loser as I am? SHE IS! Great. I relate to her!" Democracy is wildly overrated.

Well, I would have to say, after the 2012 election, never underestimate the stupidity of the American people. Also the voter fraud was through the roof and I believe will be even greater for the Democrats in 2016. I highly doubt that we´ll see a Republican as president again in our lifetime. We just can´t stop the "machine".
I know Hillary looks pretty bad now, but I guarantee that in these next 3 to 4 years, she´ll have a lot of work done on herself, and people will admire how "great" PIAP´s looks.

This is a classic strategy by the MSM to get the American voters all charged up to vote for PIAPS as the first woman president. Don´t bother to check the details of the "poll" because those of us here at LCom know that it is slanted to make PIAPS look like the front runner 4 YEARS BEFORE THE NEXT ELECTION. That´s what they do. And it´s all designed to get conservatives and Republicans (they´re not the same) to start wondering who they can run to defeat her.

Expect a lot more of these types of articles during the next 4 yrs.

at the age of 73, I honestly see little chance of our beloved country remaining as the shining city on the hill, as President Reagan calling the U.S.
We have higher levels of uninformed voters, legal and illegal, who are so uninformed, it becomes a parody of itself. Watch one or two Jay Leno jaywalking segments, and you will be amazed. Or watch Repo Game, where the person whose care is being repossessed for non payment, when given the chance to win full clear title to the vehicle if they answer 3 of 5 trivia questions correctly.
You will be absolutely amazed at the ignorance out there.
We cannot possibly survive. We cannot. And in a country where citizenship supposedly cannot be granted if the applicant cannot speak english, there are some jurisdictions where ballots contain all sorts of foreign languages, required by law.
We really are doomed. And Hillary could be the final straw, the nail in the coffin, etc. She has been an absolute failure as Secretary of State. She would be a bigger failure as president.

Indeed, Hillary is responsible for all that has happened internatonally since Obama took office. She is a total disaster, a crashsite, a blowup, a trainwreck!! Her lack of recognition to the last Benghazi travesty should be enough to have her fired. Where is America?? It is simply put, GONE!!

I never would have believed it could be possible, but after Obama got elected twice, I would say Hillary is inevitable. I think this is why BJ Clinton was helping Obama -- Obama agreed to get fully behind Hillary in 2016 and use his entire corrupt machine to ensure her victory.

The way she handled Benghazi, then lied about it, will ultimately doom her election bid. This investigation is only beginning & she will be thrown under the bus by The One. Which is why her "husband" put their cabal of attys together for her the week of the attack. Her goals will soon be to stay out of jail, & live to charge a mil per speaking fee.

#38, she was doing the will of BO. However, this does not absolve her. If she found his policies morally repugnant, she´d resign... right?

Maybe this is why there are so many photo ops of her swigging the booze?

Oooo, #40, you make creeepy sense. Ugh. maybe even some kind of triumvirate or other perversion?

Does anyone remember the scene of Hill-of-Beans in Africa, early in her officialdom, sitting, well, sort of spreading out in her purple pantsuit, haggard?

She was asked a question by a young African girl which Hilly misunderstood, she thought she was asked what her HUSBAND would do... hah hah oh if she only had had an ashtray within reach. you could see her fiery eyes dart around the hut searching for one, as she leaned forward. Whaaaaaat? she screeched...

She, BO and much of the State and adminsistration are soleley repsonsible for Islamication of the entire ME, the explosion of mulsim fundamentalism, the horrific violation of human rights against women, children and non-muslims and more and more people being murdered in the region.

Yet, I have no doubt she will run and win. The very fact that she has not resigned or been fired after Benghazi indicates the administration, the Republicans and apparently a huge number of Americans do not care that 4 Americans were assassinated while serving their country under her watch.

There are too many lunatics who are still in love wtih Bill Clinton and the thought of him back in the WH makes them swoon. Her only role will to make patronizing speeches and fly around the world giving out American dollars to 10th world and despotic regimes. Much like BO has done since day one.

I would not be surprised if a nuke hit our shores and the brain dead masses would still vote for BO and then Hill.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

Diplomacy downplay: Obama administration

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor and Shaun Waterman    Original Article

The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”

Why Obama´s ´Best-Looking Attorney

The Atlantic, by Garance Franke-Ruta    Original Article

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than
