Chelsea Clinton doesn´t close
door to public office

USA Today, by Catalina Camia

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 4/8/2013 10:23:20 AM

Chelsea Clinton has raised her profile in the last few days, which sparked the inevitable question about the former first daughter´s future: Will she ever be like Mom and Dad and run for office? Clinton, 33, essentially said "maybe" in an interview that aired Monday on NBC´s Today show. "Right now I´m grateful to live in a city, a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor, my president and my senators and my representative," said Clinton, whose father, Bill, was president from 1993-2001 and her mother, Hillary

Comments:
Hooray! There is hope for the future! And after her royal highness steps down - Jeb´s son to the rescue!Yay! These people are fabulous. No? Catalina?

It says much about our country when branding trumps substance.

And by the way, we stoop to the progressive´s level when we bring up looks or other irrelevant bits. With the left and their media looking for every excuse to demonize us we can´t afford to serve then softballs. We need to continue to make the contrast stark like the DC mall left cleaner after thousands of Tea Party folks were there.

How did she acquire such a huge net worth at such tender years, and a $10 million dollar home, when she has done nothing of any significance other than be employed at a hedge fund and marry more money? She has lived too much of her life in the rarified air of DC and NYC to have the slightest understanding of how hard others have to work to support her and others like her in their totally undeserved lifestyle. No thank you. Please, no more Clintons Kennedys or Bushes ever thinking about political office.

Talk about sick thinking!! The name Clinton is enough to raise the hackles on the backs of all who read this post. The daughter falls right at the roots of the parents when talking and writing about her possible future. Benghazi comes to mind and the "what difference does it make?" statement Hillary Clinton made in her sad attempt to lie her way out of what happened there. Chelsea has done nothing and said less about the political nature of her thinking. Her parents have shown Americans who they are, and what they think. It is about THEM and Chelsea is part of that.

Poor little old Chelsea. She grew up being taken care of by her doting father while her mother pursued her law career. Then she had to change schools and go to Sidwell Friends. Off to Stanford, then to Oxford where she learned to shack up with her boyfriend. She marries a young man with questionable family activities. Daddy gets her a job with a hedge fund for a couple of years. Now she´s ready to run for office if she can make a difference.

At least Bill worked his way up and Hillary practiced law. Chelsea has led a life of protection and removing the unpleasantries of life, kind of like the protected babies at Johns Hopkins. Tell Chelsea to call in 10 or 12 years and we´ll see if she had done anything worthwhile with her life.

Republicans let the Clintons slide after their crimes, and they come back to haunt us. Fill in the blanks: GOP let Andrew "HUD" Cuomo slide, let Chuck Schumer slide (collapsing WAMU bank, for one), let Al Gore slide, let John Kerry slide (now sec of state), let Jon Corzine slide, etc. So-called opposition party has had zero success in derailing the opposition, and they come back even stronger.

Voting against Bushes is an act of love
Daily Caller, by W. James Antle III    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 4/18/2014 8:23:53 AM     Post Reply
A popular online dictionary offers four definitions for the word “bushed.” The first is “overgrown with bushes.” The second is “exhausted, tired out.” The third is a Canadian colloquialism meaning “mentally unbalanced as a result of prolonged residence in a sparsely inhabited region.” Each of these definitions seems to describe the Republican Party’s feeling about the Bush family. If that’s not true and the GOP nominates Jeb Bush for president — the third Bush since 1988 — then perhaps the fourth definition applies: “unable to find one’s direction; lost; confused.” There’s a case to be made that George H.W. Bush is an underrated president,

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

Obama taps gay bishop to wrap Easter

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity. The crowd immediately started

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016. Forget political dynasties -- Bushes, Kennedys and, yes, Clintons -- the former first lady told NBC last year. "We´ve had enough Bushes." She also said: "There are a lot of great families, and it´s not just four families or whatever." Listen to your mother, Jeb.Heed her words well, Hillary. My sweetest dream for 2016 would be for a bipartisan pact: that 2016 will not be a sequel to the 1992 Bush-Clinton faceoff. Is it a deal, Dems? I won´t vote for Bush if you

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying.

Mark the date. Sometime on Tuesday, Apr. 1, 2014, Charles H Keating Jr. became a footnote … in Sen. John McCain´s biography. No one would have predicted this, not even McCain. Especially McCain. But we were wrong. There was a time when McCain´s association with Keating looked like it would bring an end to the senator´s political career. 1989, Keating´s Lincoln Savings and Loan went belly up, putting taxpayers on the hook for $3.4 billion, or roughly $13.60 from every man, woman and child then living in the United States.

The Jeb Bush boomlet

WASHINGTON -- Inevitably, considering the absence of a clear Republican frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, the name of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of the family dynasty has been rushed to the fore. On his record in office and his soft-spoken personal appeal, he would seem a natural to go to the head of a list of only moderately impressive wannabes. But the immediate question is: Do American voters, after a double dose of Bushes, want another one? The fact is that memories of the two George Bush presidencies now set few GOP hearts aflutter.The first George, elected to

For four days ending Sunday, a quartet of presidential hopefuls trooped to Las Vegas to attend the annual gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition. Impresario: Sheldon Adelson, the Vegas-Macau casino mogul whose fortune is estimated at $39 billion — 8th richest man on the planet — and who dumped $92 million into the election of 2012. Adelson kept Newt Gingrich alive with a $15 million infusion of ad money, gutting Romney, and then sank $30 million into Mitt’s campaign. This time Sheldon wants to buy himself a winner.

Vladimir Putin seems to have lost touch with reality, Angela Merkel reportedly told Barack Obama after speaking with the Russian president. He is “in another world.” “I agree with what Angela Merkel said … that he is in another world,” said Madeleine Albright, “It doesn’t make any sense.” John Kerry made his contribution to the bonkers theory by implying that Putin was channeling Napoleon: “You don’t just, in the 21st century, behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on a completely trumped-up pretext.” Now that Putin has taken Crimea without firing a shot, and 95 percent of a Crimean electorate voted

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

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.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

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
