Washington - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi continued to offer effusive praise for Hillary Clinton, saying the former secretary of state would be one of the best-prepared incoming presidents if she decided to run in 2016. "If she does, she will win and when she becomes president, she´ll be one of the best-equipped, best-prepared people to enter the White House in a very long time," Pelosi said in an interview that aired Sunday on CNN´s "State of the Union." Noting Clinton´s experience as secretary of state, as a U.S. senator from New York and as a first lady, Pelosi said Clinton would
That´s some deep bench of talent the communist democrats have if Hillary Clinton is touted as more ready than anyone in the commie party. When she´s not in a vodka bottle she might be capable of cleaning airport restrooms.
Between what was on the Pelosi plate at yesterday´s power reception and the medicinal cig she finished prior to the statement, combined, she is tripping on magic mushrooms. I´m here in NY and have been told there are frequent visits to Woodstock by YOU KNOW WHO for YOU KNOW WHAT. The age of Aquarius to wash away all the mud left behind by Clintamas families.
So, did we all miss the time when Hillary was a Governor? Hillary is no more ready to be president than Obama ever was. The only thing going for Obama was his outward disguise, covering the raging wolf inside.
Doncha have bigger and better things to tend to like that big ole bubbling Petrie Dish of yours Nancy? You know, that one that holds the "Culture of Corruption" that the democRats have turned into an art form dearie?
Hey, Nancy, wasn´t Hillary in charge when the terrorists attacked our compound in Benghazi and murdered and tortured our Ambassador? And did she ever go on TV to explain what happened. And did she EVER tell us where she was during the attack and where Pres. Obama was? What has she ever done on her own that one could call an accomplishment? Nada. Nope. She does not have the courage to take on a really big job by herself. Who would she stand behind?
You have to elect the first woman president before you can find out what the first woman president wants to do to destroy what´s left of the country - after you elected the first black president so you could find out that he wanted to destroy America,starting with the Constitution.
Yep, Hillary is right up there with the best of them...she can out lie both her husband (remember him, the no sex with the intern broad )and the bozo in the white house who told us we could keep our med plan, keep our doctors, save $2,500. a year in the health plan, the guy who along with Hillary did a Benghazi lie duet, who´se been to 57 states and so on. Now the lemon saleswoman,Pelosi wants us to elect the Pinochio woman to find out if she is qualified to be first liar...take another shot of Botox and crawl under your bed woman!
Botox Nancy has Alzheimer´s. There can be no other explanation. At least Billy Bob wasn´t known as the Butcher of Benghazi. His ticket was sending a missile up some camel´s arse. The Hildebeast prefers to murder U.S. citizens. Just ask Hubbell. Oh, that´s right, he was taken out years ago.
Having a slew of hack government positions on your resume doesn´t qualify you to be president.Having the right core belief system is what matters and these people are in it for the power and glory.
Dr.Carson doesn´t have political experience but I would trust him more with the job because he´s a real American who´s heart and mind is in the right place.He would also bring some moral authority to the job which the Clintons never would.There´s countless bureacrats who know how government works but couldn´t be president.
The Obama administration, in an 11th-hour change just before the holiday break,announced a major exemption in ObamaCare that will let people who lost coverage and are struggling to get a new plan sign up for bare-bones policies. The move Thursday to allow potentially hundreds of thousands of people to sign up for "catastrophic" coverage plans was blasted by the insurance industry as a shift that would cause "tremendous instability.” The administration downplayed the sudden change, saying they expected it to impact fewer than 500,000 people. Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters said, "This is a common sense clarification of the law. For
Ethan Krupp, the little man who played “Pajama Boy” in a widely-mocked Obamacare ad, was accused in college of racism and anti-Semitism. Krupp, an Organizing for Action (OFA) content writer who became the face of progressive America when he sipped cocoa and smirked while wearing a onesie pajama suit in a recent Obamacare ad, is also a failed comedy writer whose work was not appreciated in his own time. Krupp was the editor of Wisconsin’s college-town “Madison Misnomer” as recently as 2010, noting that “Nothing is ever accomplished” at editorial meetings and “It probably won’t last more than another year.” But while
Have you heard about “Pajama Boy”? He’s in an ad tweeted yesterday by a political nonprofit associated with President Obama, wearing what appears to be a plaid onesie while cradling a hot beverage and looking to one side through arched eyebrows. The point of the ad is to promote Obamacare among young adults. “Wear pajamas. Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance,” says the ad copy.
Iran: Protecting President Obama from embarrassment precludes protecting America from nuclear terror. That´s why Harry Reid is blocking a bipartisan coalition of senators from voting to increase sanctions on Iran. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., hit the detonator on the head Wednesday when he pointed out on the Senate floor that his Democratic counterpart "can´t stomach a vote on Iran sanctions" because "he knows the administration would lose that vote decisively, and he knows that many members of his own caucus would vote alongside Republicans to strengthen those sanctions." Reid was pushing through a defense spending bill under floor rules that
Last month we told you about John Beale, the Environmental Protection Agency employee who bilked taxpayers out of almost $900,000 by pretending to be a secret agent. Telling EPA colleagues that he was a CIA operative, Beale was paid for long absences while on imaginary missions for "Langley." Now there is a disturbing new question about John Beale that goes to the heart of the EPA´s mission. What was he doing when he actually showed up for work? In September, Beale pleaded guilty to theft of government property and agreed to pay $886,186 in restitution and to forfeit another $507,207. On
Redistribution: Imagine lower-income families watching their incomes drop while their tax burden goes up. Patently unfair, right? Yet it actually happened under President Obama. According to a Tax Foundation analysis of new IRS data, the bottom half of income-tax filers paid 36% more in taxes in 2011 than they did in 2010 — even though their incomes barely budged. The top half, in contrast, saw their tax burden climb only 9%. The average tax rate paid by the bottom half has climbed every year under Obama, going from 2.35% in 2009 to 3.13% in 2011. Viewed another way, the share of "adjusted gross
There are all sorts of time bombs embedded within ObamaCare. Will we force doctors to treat millions of new Medicaid patients who are signing up for services that can be only partially reimbursed? How will the IRS collect penalties from millions of off-the-books youth who choose not to buy coverage? For those who chose not to buy health insurance in the past, will these newly insured really follow through on their initial sign-ups with steady monthly premium payments? If not, how will we collect what they owe? Will all those who lost their coverage have enough money to buy the costlier
A&E enjoys rights to free contract and free speech in determining whom they employ and what they allow them to say. But just because you have a right to do something doesn’t make it the right thing to do. In a series of instances we have seen the gatekeepers of civil society attack those who hold Biblical views about marriage and sexuality—Chick-fil-A, Barilla Pasta, Craig James who was fired from ESPN, and now Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty. It is even worse, of course, when it is the government that penalizes those who hold Biblical views. That should be anathema in America.
Fifteen years ago today, the House of Representatives impeached a president for only the second time in history — and the first in well over a century. At some point, some fair-minded historian should go back and publish a thorough account of that year-long controversy, just to set the record straight. Some may argue over whether Clinton’s perjury and obstruction of justice amounted to “high crimes or misdemeanors,” but the case needs to be established for the record that Clinton did, without a doubt, perjure himself and obstruct justice. (I believe he also suborned perjury, among other misdeeds.) Moreover, it
RUSH: The latest Fox News poll gives Obama a 41% approval rating among registered voters. But how about this. Only 37% of voters under 30 approve of the job the president´s doing. That´s a 17-point decline, folks, in one year among voters who represent what was once the core of the Obama coalition. These are the people to whom the president´s making an increasingly frantic plea to enroll in Obamacare, where that sick... Sorry. Yes, sick Pajama Boy ad. Do you know where you can get that? Somebody going through the Target, said you could actually buy that onesie that
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, as you are undoubtedly aware by now, the A&E network, which stands for Arts & Entertainment, has put the patriarch of Duck Dynasty, Phil Robertson, on indefinite hiatus. I think they´ve essentially fired the guy, and in the process, they have thrown away the largest audience on cable television. They´ve just thrown it away. They´ve thrown away all that advertising. I want to get into that aspect of this as it relates to what a free market is in a moment. But first, it is obvious that Robertson´s goose is cooked. The Duck Dynasty goose is
Being a Clinton sure beats being a Bush these days. At least according to the polls. Nearly five years after George W. Bush left office, half the public still blames the former president for the nation’s economic woes, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll released this week. The survey comes as Republicans have continued to keep the 43rd president at arm’s length. Democrats, meanwhile, have warmly embraced the family that occupied the White House prior to Bush; polling data show the Clintons are riding high. Fifty percent of Americans say Bush is more responsible for the country’s current economic problems than
Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know
A&E broke its silence on Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments late Wednesday. The cable network announced Robertson is off the hit show for the time being. The network issued the following statement to EW: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
President Barack Obama sent Russia a clear message about its treatment of gays and lesbians with who he is — and isn’t — sending to represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics. Billie Jean King will be one of two openly gay athletes in the U.S. delegation for the opening and closing ceremonies, Obama announced Tuesday. For the first time since 2000, however, the U.S. will not send a president, former president, first lady or vice president to the Games. Russia has come under fierce criticism for passing national laws banning “gay propaganda.” Though the White House did not specifically address
The gay and lesbian rights group GLAAD is slamming ´Duck Dynasty´ patriarch Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine, and challenging the show´s network, A&E, to take action against its most popular star. In a wide-ranging interview, Robertson shared his thoughts on homosexuality and religion. After stating in very graphic terms his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex, Robertson launched into more thoughts about homosexuality and sinning. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said.
Yes, she really said it. On CNN’s Piers Morgan Live Tuesday, in a brief discussion about President Obama, Barbara Walters actually said, “We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn´t say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah” (video follows with transcript and commentary): PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
Everyone is doing thoughtful year-end pieces on President Obama. Writers and reporters agree he’s had his worst year ever. I infer from most of their essays an unstated but broadly held sense of foreboding: There’s no particular reason to believe next year will be better, and in fact signs and indications point to continued trouble. I would add that in recent weeks I have begun to worry about the basic competency of the administration, its ability to perform the most fundamental duties of executive management. One reason I worry is that I frequently speak with people who interact with the White
O ne year removed from re-election, President Obama´s approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama´s popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama´s job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That´s down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep drop? Well, the first year of Obama´s second term
John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.
Hours after we reported that Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson dropped some illogical “logic” on homosexuality during his GQ interview, his home network A&E decided to indefinitely suspend him from the show. While Robertson’s comments were hilariously ignorant, they were predictable — especially given his family’s socially-conservative, Bible-loving image. Suspending the lead character for his wholly predictable comments is not only an overreaction but a gross misstep. To recap: The Duck Commander patriarch remarked to the men’s magazine that homosexuality is on par with bestiality, and used fifth-grade “logic” to imply that homosexual men should give up their ways of choosing a
A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ. "We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty," A&E said in a statement. "His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely." The news comes after Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality in an interview
The Ivy-League educated half-brother of President Obama is publishing his autobiography in which he makes the shocking claim their father dished out alcohol-fueled beatings to him and his mother and in one terrifying instance held a knife to her throat. Mark Obama Ndesandjo, 48, also uses his new book to set the U.S. president straight on inaccuracies he claims exist in his best-selling 1995 memoir Dreams From My Father and confirms they have never seen eye-to-eye because ´Barack thought I was too white and I thought he was too black.´ The self-published book, Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery, which will be
Valerie Jarrett denied being a “shadow chief of staff” to President Obama on Wednesday, insisting she never talks about work during her private time with the president and first lady. “I´m not the shadow chief of staff. I have very specific responsibilities,” Jarrett, a senior adviser to the president and a longtime family friend of the Obamas, said at a Politico breakfast. [WATCH VIDEO] Jarrett said that “people sometimes presume because I am a friend of the president and first lady” that she´s able to exert influence when the Obamas retire from the office to their residence. “There is this
