Hillary Clinton’s Ego Trips
Bloomberg News, by Michael Kinsley

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 1/10/2013 6:24:27 AM

The world is a better place because of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. That’s not the question. The question is whether it is a better place because of those last 20 hours of her 80-hour work week. Or because of the extra miles she flew to distant capitals? On one trip in 2009, according to the New York Times, “she traveled from talks with Palestinian leaders in Abu Dhabi to a midnight meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, then boarded a plane for Morocco, staying up all night to work on other issues,

Old Hilly is beginning to look like she was rode hard and put away wet. And all for nothing! Our world is in a worse place because of her and her meddling. Retire, Hilzilla! But I bet she hates to give up her plane.

What, exactly, does she have to show for all this travel? Were any human rights abuses stopped? Were any wars stopped or averted? Is Israel any better off? Anybody?

FTA: "The world is a better place because of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state." Really? How is it better and according to whom?


FTA: "...but it surely is not true of the generation of which Mrs. Clinton and her husband are by now the undisputed leaders. (Who else? Nobody is nominating George W. Bush.)" -
The Clintons are the leaders of their generation? Oh, my gosh, make it stop. Also, Mr. Kinsley apparently just couldn´t help himself in finding a way to sneak in a little jab at our former President Bush.

FTA: ...she clearly has been working herself to death in her current job as well as in her past two, as senator and first lady.

Doing what? What´s ´Exhibit A´? From the very first moment she appeared on the national scene over 20 years ago, it was assumed she was the smartest women anywhere. Besides forgetting a LOT of important stuff (under oath), what has she done? Personally, I´ll always remember her as the potty mouth who yelled F*J*B at her husband´s aide.

But isn´t it an interesting contrast-- Poor Hill´s packed schedule, red-eye flights and long meetings contrasted with BO´s lunches with Biden, meetings with NBA teams and tee-times.

Bill Clinton,the new father of the year recipient and Hillary Clinton who worked tirelessly accomplishing nothing as SoS are big accomplishments for the left, compared to their laundry list of failures over the years.

Hillary has been a main player in the muslim brotherhood building power in the middle east,putting our former ally,Israel under increasing security threats.

Does somebody really deserve credit for 4 dead americans because she was asleep at the switch on security in Benghazi. Can those 4 people be that easily wiped away for Hillary´s resume as she sets up a 2016 run?. How about that amazing injury recovery which never was to begin with.

Speaking from personal experience,there is no treatment for a concussion except for the passing of time but she had to be hospitalized.
And what the hell is exactly a blood clot "near the brain"?Is there a secret part of the brain where clots thrive? Can blood thinners really cure a clot in 3 short weeks?

In Iraq, we ultimately took control of the entire country by means of the surge. We then negotiated a level of forces agreement and withdrew on schedule leaving a functioning country behind.

In Afghanistan, Obama has never controlled the country despite a surge and there has not been a successful level of forces agreement. We are leaving but it is not clear that the country can survive. What´s worse is that the warlords who control the country have always recognized the winners and will switch sides in a heartbeat. One senses that they don´t see Obama´s America as a winner.

The Obama Administration did not negotiate a Status of Forces agreement with Iraq before our last troops departed and even if they did, that is hardly an accomplishment of Hillary´s.

No, Hillary got to wine and dine all over the world, flown around as if royalty; the head held supremely high as she disembarked from the government jet and stuck out her hand to shake another foreign/fellow diplomat and then off to some palce to have a light lunch and/or perhpas a visit to a local winery before heading off into those marathon 12/16 hour meetings to discusss.... and then back to the guest rooms (ambassador level) at the US Embassy where she and Huma could compare notes...

She would be a terrible President. She´s Dumpy and Frumpy and most of the time her hair looks like it hasn´t been washed in a week. We need someone who can make us proud as a Representative of our country, not someone who looks like a Bag Lady most of the time. She obviously didn´t spend any time shopping for clothes while SOS!

King Zero came into office not knowing ANYONE , so he began his quest for adoring females at the state level . Hence we got Nappy and the Kansas lawyer Whatshername . Hillary was a favor . Then he asked Jarrett to hunt down every black person who´d be interested . Point is , his entire operation is being run by nincompoops who have zero experience or qualifications to be where they are .

Clearly HilLIARy´s appearance demonstrates that she does not think.

She consumes too much salt and fat.

She flies around the world - making busywork when she could work more efficiently at her desk and save important meetings for a real foreign policy statement.

She obviously does not understand today´s technological advancements which make her old school, boring and computer/techno challenged.

She is STILL trying to get Bill´s attention with the long stringy blond hair - looks awful.

She is so insecure, depressed and unhappy that is, now, pathetic.

Good riddance - ALL the Clintoons

The current affairs in Egypt are the direct result of Obama and Clinton.
For 30 years Egypt kept the peace with Israel. Now take a good look at who is in control in Egypt.
Obama´s good buddies the Muslim Brotherhood made sure Hillary would sell out.

Kinsley starts off with the whopper of "better place" and continues under the assumption that we must all agree how swell the Clinton´s have been. Ignore the fact that should someone start listing scandals and failures the list would go for pages and pages - myself? I can´t get past Bubba LYING to a federal grand jury - Kinsley you, and all your ilk, are saps.

All this shows that Hillary Clinton is a very poor manager as her ambassadors in countries around the world could surely have handled much of the routine wining and dining, with Clinton only showing up to put her signature on substantial foreign policy accomplishments. However doing that would have created political vulnerabilities and PR problems for Clinton, as she did not have any real foreign policy accomplishments. On top of that, the liberal media would not have had her trips to use as as a basis to play her to the American public as being a progressive saint traveling around the world.

Clinton had to stay away from most of the real sheiks and potentates in the Middle East who are secure in their countries, as Clinton is a woman, and except during photo ops. they would have treated her like crap.

FTA: Travel is an especially good way to stay -- and appear -- busy. Otherwise, you are at risk of actually being at your desk when someone calls. What could be more embarrassing? I don’t mean to suggest that all or even most business travel, let alone diplomatic travel, is for show. Just that much of it is.

Can anyone point to a SUCCESS Piaps has had in her entire life? She´s bounced from job to job, but only spouts political doublespeak and meaningless babble. She´s as ugly as an outhouse and probably not very good company. Her elevated status just goes to show how the media can create a silk purse out of a sows (r)ear.

Hillary has been quite busy in her job as SOS. She has done what she has been told. She has lied to the world and turned her head while good men were killed by raging barbarians, and she has enabled the rebirth of the caliphate and dissed our allies. All in all, that in any progressive´s mind makes her imminently qualified for POTUS. Obama will destroy this country during his two terms and then Hillary as POTUS will dance on its grave. At this point with the media´s support of Obama´s agenda and the weak, feckless Republican opposition, it will take nothing short of divine intervention to restore this country to sanity.

Maybe she looks worse and worse because she realizes that she ain´t in no way up to the job but would die before she´d ever admit it and the stress is killing her.

She´s also probably royally ticked because she wishes Obama was her doorman instead of her alleged boss. That is all he´s good for, actually.

Michael Kinsley? He was one of the first outspoken communist party liners on media too many years ago. Where did you dig his trash up? Bilary is in the hot seat, being asked to lie for someone other than her own Slick Willie. No wonder she´s been episodically sick. She cannot tell the truth and violate her vindictive, raging boss.....The Vindicator. Not a good time to be Bilary even with her monster lying history and capability.

Hmmmm. Wonder who Mr. Kinsley wants to support in 2016... doesn´t look as though it will be Hillary. To his point about "conspicuous travel"- we all know people who do this... they´re usually running away from something and the travel puts them out of reach for hands-on problem solving. Among our political class, this disease is an epidemic.

Once I got past the first obligatory and drooling paragraph, I found it hard to believe that Kinsley had written the last part. These are ego trips. She has been driven to prove herself since she was very young. Some things never change. But she is showing serious signs of decay. Her lifestyle - all of it - has taken its toll.

What #21 said! "Travel is an especially good way to stay -and appear -- busy. Otherwise, you are at risk of actually being at your desk when someone calls." Or, I would suggest, she is finding out that it is VERY convenient for both Bill & BO to have her sent out of town & out of their hair while they are up to mischief. Coming home & staying there with nothing to do, ignored & out of the limelight, is her worst nightmare. By traveling, she "runs away" from herself.

Obfuscastion and Misdierction

This article is planted by Clinton cronies to deflect attention from the critical question ...

What Has Hillary Been Up To Travelling The World Non-Stop for Five Years, Without Surcease or Transparent Disclosure?

Collecting campaign money and handing out promises to overseas criminal mafias?

That´d be my guess.

The PIAPS still draws adulation from the sheeple. Why? Because she´s as big a failure as most of them. They look at Condi and they see a Stanford provost who can play the piano and be an expert on world affairs. She also exudes guts and dignity. They look at the PIAPS and they see an overweight, frazzled woman with a straying husband and a bad hairdo. Hey--she looks like me. She must care about me. etc.

Always remember: the PIAPS failed the bar exam.

You drive for show and putt for dough.

Hillary’s goal was to rack up more travel miles than any previous SecState and she even failed at that—Condi beat her out. Even though she three-putted every foreign crisis during her tenure (and scored a triple-bogey on Bengazi), Mrs. Clinton calculated that looking busy would protect her reputation when the flit hit the shan—as she and Bill knew it would under Obama.

Hillary equated miles with effective diplomacy just like libs equate ever-greater funding for education with more knowledgeable students. The only thing Kinsley got right in this article is that Democrats measure success by the size of inputs, not by the success of outcomes.

"The world is a better place because of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state." Stopped reading right there. This thieving, lying, and at the very least an accessory to the murder of our brave Seals on that rooftop in Benghazi is arguably the worst Secretary of State in our nation´s history. Witness the fruits of her and Dictator Obama´s Middle East policies which have resulted in a takeover of radical islam and may ultimately result in the destruction of Israel. Not to mention the alienation of our most staunchist allies around the world. The sooner this devious, Communist Pantload exits the American halls of power the better. She belongs in prison.

Hillary confuses being SoS with the role of First Lady. As SoS, one is expected to do more than show up, shake hands, be charming (this would be work for her, I admit), have dinner, and be gracious.

At least when Condi was SoS, she could rack up the air miles, show up well-groomed. And she could speak Russian to the Russians and French to the French. When Hillary speaks, it is mostly in FJB language, not exactly the language of diplomats. Susan Rice speaks the same kind of language as Hillary, another reason why she was not considered to be SoS material.

I think Obama was trying to wear her down so she wouldn´t challenge him in 2012.
Obama sent Richard Holbrooke back and forth and back and forth to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
While he put in his typical 2 hr day and then played basketball and golf and partied.
And then Holbrooke collapsed and died at 69 .

Two thoughts on this:

First, Hillary´s jetting all over the place, working all-nighters, reminds me of the old SNL skit with John Belushi. Belushi and several other guys dressed in gymnast uniforms all trot around the stage shouting "Hut! Hut! Hut!" but they never do any tricks.

Second, as to this quote: "Clinton looks awful and has looked worse and worse for years," we all know that if you dry something out too quickly sometimes it cracks.

A nation that will tolerate corruption is itself corrupt". That goes for the vast majority of the MSM also.
The Clintons have scandalized the entire world with their immorality, depravity and greed. They have overwhelmed our entire
political system with unending corruption.
A more fitting award for Bubba is "Philanderer of the Year".

So the left is beginning an anti-Hillary campaign because ** they are grooming someone else. ** Wonder who it is---someone much like Obama, no doubt.

I dislike the Clintons immensely. However, a man would not be the prolonged subject of physical comments in the way that she is. Male politicians are often fat, old, etc., and this is rarely mentioned.

Hillary Clinton does buy very fine clothing---conservative cut and beautifully made. Her taste level has been very good in clothing, even though her overall appearance is unfortunate.

Ugly Olde Haggg Hill-err-ee-ass Herself

Perfectly apropos for pathetic joke Michael Kinsley...
to play suck-up...
to a bitter tired Olde Haggg.

We owned old nags that were more productive...
and easier to stomach visually.

Hill-err-ee-ass is just their rear end.

Those must be Beer Goggles that Michael´s wearing.
Does the thrill go all the way...
up his leg... ?

(Might have to adopt my typo that I´ve already corrected...
I typed ´Heil-err-ee-ass´ by accident.
If this witch gets elected...
´Heil-err-ee-ass´ it is... in perpetuity.
GAWD save us all from this wannabe Queen.)

Well, now that we´ve managed to insult Hagis, something I never knew was actually possible, the term The Hillbag pretty much covers it for me.

At a recent press conference following his being named ´Father Of The Year´ former President Bill ´BJ´ Clinton was asked by a reporter ´How´s Hillary´s head?´
´Well, she´s no Monica Lewinsky, that´s for sure,´ Clinton chuckled. (s/off)

Hillary is just an OLD hippie chick that looks like those homeless people who push shopping carts up and down the street. Some things never change.

the only way you´d notice jet lag is if you had to be some where, had an appointment. If Hill and friends are just partaying and the plane goes from stop-to-stop, and one never gets off the plane, there ´d be no lag. Just another day.
Or the plane just drops her at Alta de Chavon in the Dominican, and picks her up in 2 weeks. The plane is sent to country X, Y and Z w/ no one aboard.
All the debauchery shown is her high life and her duff-miving. The "picture of Dorian Gray" in reverse.

Some great comments follow the column, especially the ones from Ben Wenton and Sukie Tawdry. They capsulize Ms. Clinton´s history, and make it clear that the adulation thrown her way is undeserved.

The local paper in my town insulted all of its readers´ intelligence a couple of weeks ago, in a What´s In, What´s Out column. Hillary is In because "everyone loves Hillary Clinton".

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 —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.

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.

With a Speech, Cardinal
Set Path to Papacy

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul´s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn´t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial."

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
