David Brooks predicts
‘a big Draft Hillary
movement’ for 2016

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/9/2012 11:12:56 AM

Regardless of whether President Barack Obama wins in November, The New York Times’ David Brooks says he expects a serious “Draft Hillary” movement in 2016. Appearing on Alec Baldwin’s WNYC “Here’s The Thing” podcast, where just last month George Will said that Hillary Clinton’s political career is all but over, Brooks pointed to what he called the Democrats’ “reasonably weak bench” as one reason to not count out the Secretary the State’s future White House chances. “First of all, I think the Democrats have a reasonably weak bench for 2016

Comments:
Ha ha ha...Brooks said Hillary would have done a better job than 0bama because she has a better personality. . . .funny stuff. The DemcRAT bench is empty except for the fat loud-mouth chick with the hygiene issues. My prediction: Romney wins in 2012 and if Hillary runs in '16 she will be the female Bob Dole.

In reality David Brooks has to be the most overrated, overhyped pseudointellectual ever...next to Tom Friedman and Paul Krugman of course

I did not read the article. Did Brooks mention that Hillary is the most humiliated woman in the world?

Did he mention that there are reports out this morning from a new book that further humiliation is in the offing in the form of a divorce request from the "Horn Dog" back in 1990?

Did Brooks mention that the second most humiliated woman in the world, Humma Weiner, works for Hillary?

Just wondering if David did his work thoroughly.

The democrats could forgive her incompetence if she were not so old and ugly-looking.

I am not mocking her. She does not have to be ugly. She runs around with straggly hair and no makeup. If you are in a senior government position, you have to try to look your best at all times. If you don't care about yourself, you give off the vibe that you don't care about much else.

This is not sexist. Guys are judged harshly as well. Think of all of the people who say that Chris Christie is off-putting because he does not take care of his body.

Hillary was globetrotting around the world lining up chefs for a cookoff while terrorists in the Middle East were fomenting their 9/11 attack in Benghazi. I think she jumped the shark when it comes to her higher office aspirations.

David Brooks is "stuck on stupid" in his thinking - always looking at the past, no fresh ideas, unable to visualize anything new. Ambitious DemocRATS will not stand aside for Hillary. Andrew Cuomo has been working on his resume for 20 years now. He'll soon find a way to marry that live-in blonde. Watch for the book, maybe something published with his father. Chuck Schumer loves a camera enough to run. But his wife makes Hillary look like a movie star, so she may drag (no pun intended) down his chances. What about Susan Rice? If she is a lesbian, that would be the perfect Dem candidate, covering all the bases: Black, female, gay.

Andrew Cuomo has daddy issues that need attention.
Sibelius has tenticles everywhere.

So it won't be just Hillary.

By 2016 Hillary should just be getting out of jail for her role in Libya.

According to HillBuzz Conservative Politics, the entire attack was a plan by Obama to look tough on foreign policy. He was going to organize a possible "hostage" release using "The Blind Sheik " as a bargaining chip. Things blew up in his face when the "hostages" were killed instead.

The Obama administration lied and people died. Hillary was the SOS and will have to own it. No way she is viable for 2016.

Her looks do matter - either she looks like she just rolled out of bed or her make-up is spackled on making her look clownish. Four years from now I doubt it will have gotten better.

Dems don't nominate losers. Only Reps do that. Reps usually run the guy who's turn it is, the guy that last the time before but came in second--McCain, Romney, Dole... Dems always want someone new. Hillary will be very old, tired news in 2016. If they didn't want her in 2008, they won't in 2016.

So what if they have a weak bench. Dems usually put up someone you didn't expect a few years earlier. Who in 2004 thought Obama would be the guy 4 years later?

But if she has to speak without a teleprompter, everyone is quickly going to remember that the only reason she ever got elected to anything is because she was Slick Willie's wife.

Her Heinous wouldn't be any improvement over Mr. Potato Head. Both are inveterate Alinskyites, committed leftists without the least understanding of economic or strategic matters. Instead of healthy blood, a substance like subversion flows in their veins.

You should read Christopher Hitchens's No One Left to Lie To, especially the chapter entitled "The Shadow of the Con Man (Rodham's Last Hurrah.)" I'll let Hitch speak for himself.

"Mrs. Clinton has the most unappetizing combination of qualities to be met in many days' march: she is a tyrant and a bully when she can dare to be, and an ingratiating populist when that will serve. She will sometimes appear in the guise of a "strong woman" and sometimes in the softer garb of a winsome and vulnerable female. She is entirely un-self-critical and quite devoid of reflective capacity, and has never found that any of her numerous misfortunes or embarrassments are her own fault, because the fault invariably lies with others. And, spesking of where things lie, she can in a close contest keep up with her husband for mendacity. Like him, she is not just a liar but a lie; a phoney construct of shreds and patches and hysterical self-pitying, demagogic improvisations."

Quite so.

Clinton White House’s Conspiracy
Theory of Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories

If Bill Clinton’s political camp was known for believing the right wing was out to get him, then this undated memo from his administration codified his team’s suspicions. The memo was released today in the latest, thousands-of-pages-long batch of Clinton White House documents to be posted online by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library & Museum. The National Archives have been releasing tranches of Clinton documents, previously withheld under the Presidential Records Act, every two weeks this spring. Reportedly authored by Chris Lehane, then a young White House aide who would later serve as press secretary for

KUALA LUMPUR - About 100 Malaysian Muslim activists protested on Friday outside the US embassy against the coming visit by President Barack Obama, denouncing him as an enemy of Islam. The demonstration underscored the delicate nature of Obama´s trip to Muslim-majority Malaysia, which will make him the first siting US president to visit in nearly half a century, a period marked by mutual distrust. The protesters marched to the embassy in Kuala Lumpur from a nearby mosque after Friday afternoon prayers, shouting "God is great" and "Obama is the enemy of the Prophet Muhammad." They also bore placards and banners

This is not a joke, but it is funny. It´s also practical. Argentina´s National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA) has invented a way to convert cow flatulence into usable energy, and it involves putting a plastic backpack on a cow. In other words, cow fartpacks are here.(snip)Here´s how the fartpacks work: tubes run from the backpack into the cows´ rumen (or biggest digestive tract). They extract about 300 liters of methane a day, which is enough to run a car or a fridge for about 24 hours. Pablo Soranda, INTA press officer, told FastCo.Exist that the project is more about making a point than

Gov. Terry McAuliffe plans to announce today that he will shrink the time violent felons must wait to seek reinstatement of their voting rights and will remove some offenses from that list. The policy slated to take effect April 21 comes on top of years of work to streamline the process, and aims to make the system easier to understand and to allow more felons to petition the state more quickly. In a series of changes to the state´s restoration of rights process, McAuliffe plans to collapse the application waiting period from five to three years for people convicted of violent felonies

The two bombers who killed and maimed innocent people at the Boston marathon a year ago had come as refugees to America, from conflicts that America and her people did nothing to cause. They had been granted the privileges of a law-abiding democracy, including education, health care and the precious freedoms for which Americans have fought in two world wars. Their situation was incomparably better than it would have been, had they stayed behind in Chechnya. Among the many privileges that they enjoyed religious freedom was by no means the least important. They were able to attend their local mosque, to take part in its services and

Anti-Semitic fliers ordering Jews in Donetsk, Ukraine, to “register” with authorities were an elaborate hoax, the region’s chief rabbi said Friday. The Nazi-era-style leaflets — which instructed Jews to register as pro-Russia separatists and declare all property — were likely used as a tool get the international community involved in the battle between Russia and Ukraine, the rabbi told The Guardian.(snip)On Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry denounced the fliers as “grotesque” and the story of their distribution quickly spread, deeply disturbing Jews in the region and all over the world.

PATERSON — Mayoral hopeful Aslon Goow Sr. claims dirty politics are at play after it was revealed in federal filings that he had been arrested 15 times, charges that had been expunged, according to a report in The Paterson Press. The bombshell came as Goow, a former councilman and one of eight running for mayor in New Jersey´s third-largest city, lost a civil lawsuit in which he claimed Paterson police targeted him in an investigation for attempting to apprehend an suspected burglar in a high-speed chase in 2006, the paper reported. The city has paid nearly $500,000 defending itself from

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Thursday. "We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius," Kim said at the start of the IMF-World Bank spring meetings in Washington. "Warming by two degrees Celsius is going to have major implications.... 40 percent of the arable land in Africa will be gone at two degrees Celsius; Bangkok could very well be underwater at two

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
