Similar to Imam Obama’s, her presidency would be
an historic first in many ways.
Former Republican presidential candidate John McCain recently called Ms. Clinton a “fine” Secretary of State and observed that he would find it “tough” to choose were she and Senator Paul to be opposing candidates for the presidency in 2016.
Senator McCain makes “tough” choices poorly — like his RINO colleagues — so why should he bother?
We, however, need to make some choices and they need not all be “tough” ones. Mike at Make an Effort today contended,
The only viable option left to us is a reformation within the Republican Party as we have wandered to far from the Founders Intent and have no time left…
“Third Party” only seals defeat for decades, if not forever.
Doing nothing only leaves The Establishment running the Republicans and gets us more John McCain’s who do exactly what the Socialists want under the banner of “Conservatism” which keeps the uninformed confused. (One should logically ask why Establishment Republicans would do what the Socialists want… it’s because they don’t really disagree with them. They think Obamacare is a good idea in the end. They like governing business without taking it over. They find power in a Command and Control Economy. They also think you are too stupid to make the right decisions for yourself. They are in fact Fascist, but they will never be honest enough with us, or themselves, to admit it. They are a distinction without a difference when held in contrast to Democrats.) [Emphasis added.]
We are at a place where every fight must be fought.
If they are not, the population will never see the difference between the parties… which has been by design for years.
Speaking of choices, Ms. Clinton was an appropriate choice as President Obama’s Secretary of State because she is as adept at foreign policy as He is — not at all. She had lots of company.
One of the most blatant, arrogant views of the American foreign policy establishment today is the frequency with which its members insist that leaders know nothing about their own countries. Thus, Obama, a man who has spent a few hours in Israel and has no empathy with it, can dare to say that he knows better what the country needs than does Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
If elected President, whom might President Clinton chose as her Secretary of State? Huma Abedin, a.k.a. Mrs. Weiner, might be her choice because Ms. Abedin could get right to work on the very first day and even answer a three a.m. telephone call.
Senator McCain chose to persuade some Republicans to vote for cloture on the Senate confirmation hearings for Tod Jones, the acting head for five years of the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives), as permanent director.
Todd Jones was the highest ranking official during Fast and Furious. Mr. Jones has refused to answer questions from Senator Grassley, Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee, concerning the scandal and any disciplinary action taken by his office.
There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol.
The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance.
As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
Saying he “had to give a speech,” McCain was eyed walking away sporting a big grin.
Right. When will/did “Maverick” McCain switch parties? Recently, soon or back in 2008?
Or have the Democrat and Republican parties become fungible, making a switch from one to the other meaningless?
Wednesday, July 31st, was Adopt a Pet Day at the U.S. Capitol and many lobbyists as well as endangered CongressCritters were likely there to display their own owner-pleasing personalities to potential new owners. New names might be equally useful, with no other changes needed. Here is a short verse that my great grandfather posted on the courthouse door in his home town, Stuart, Virginia:
Hog by name
Hog by nature.
Changed to Hogue
An historic presidency
It is understandable that Senator McCain considers Hillary Clinton to have been “fine” as Secretary of State and to be a presidential candidate for whom he might vote. Senator Paul would not be the first senator to become the President, but Ms. Clinton would be the first female President of the United States (discounting Valerie Jarrett, who is not really the President). Not only that, but on November 14th Ms. Clinton will receive The National Defense University Foundation Patriot Award, as once did Senator McCain.
“As First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton tirelessly worked to support and defend our nation and our allies around the world,” said Al Zimmerman, chairman of the NDU Foundation Board of Directors, in the press release announcing the award.
“Secretary Clinton will be the first woman to receive this award and in doing so joins an outstanding group of Americans who have been honored with the American Patriot Award, our very highest recognition,” Zimmerman continued in the release. “By honoring Secretary Clinton’s exemplary career in public service the NDU Foundation celebrates not only the American spirit of patriotism, but the leadership qualities necessary to preserve and protect that spirit.”
First Lady Clinton demonstrated her
histrionically historically patriotic bravery while under fire in Bosnia.
She didn’t really come under fire, of course, but political reality is special. The attack on the unfortunate Mr. Ben Ghazi had nothing to do with a poorly made and little seen YouTube video as she and others in the Obama Administration repeatedly claimed, but the claims seemed to be politically realistic. Making such claims enhances Ms. Clinton’s already substantial credibility as a national teller of tall tales, like President Obama. Even with that and no other presidential attributes she would certainly make as fine an office holder as He has. I wonder whether Venezuela might
take want her.
Does anything the Grand Old Party is doing make good sense? If someone will please figure it out and let me know, I’ll be grateful.
