Hillary’s First Shot


Pages: 1 2

Has the Democratic presidential primary of 2012 started already? Is Hillary Clinton beginning to position herself for a challenge to her boss? Yesterday, Hillary fired what may have been the first shot:

She said:

“I think that our rising debt level poses a national security threat, and it poses a national security threat in two ways: It undermines our capacity to act in our own interests, and it does constrain us where constraint may be undesirable. And it also sends a message of weakness, internationally.”

The contrast with her husband’s presidency is implicit: He balanced the budget and reduced the debt to the point where Wall Street fretted that there would be no more federal debt instruments to buy, leaving them without a safe place to park theirmoney.

Hillary does nothing — nothing — without forethought. She plans every word, particularly when the words are critical of her president. By framing the “debt level” as a “national security threat,” she gives herself jurisdiction over budget policy and makes her comments about it appropriate for a secretary of state. And by criticizing the debt level that her president has amassed, she sets up the basis for a fiscal/economic critique of his presidency.

    Strange that "Senator" Hillary Clinton, unworthy to have tied PATRICK MONYIHAN's shoelaces, will be talking about spending, at the time it was her rotten State Dept.
    who gave the Immam $65,000 for traveling expenses to gather the money for the
    monstrosity to be built near Ground Zero…

    Let this be a lesson for the American Jews who back her and the 80% of them who
    helped elect OBAMA President

    • ENOUGH

      I'm taking a trip…where can I get $65,000. Where's the accountability?

  • shery

    She's running! I feel it.

  • Jim Kilpatrick

    She would probably be better than Obama, who wouldn't, but that would be like being the tallest person at a midget convention.

  • USMCSniper

    Part 1:
    Hillary Rodham Clinton has never done anything significant in her entire life and her inflated opinion of herself is downright laughable. If she had not chased and married Bill Clinton and hung on his coat tails she would never be a "carpetbagger" New York Senator from Arkansas, and for damn sure she would never have been an also ran failed contender for the Democrat Party 2008 Presidential candidate nomination.

    • wopplechinkiness

      I suggest Hillary Rodham made Clinton the President, much the way Mary Todd transformed Lincoln from a hick congressman from a failed political party (whig0 to a mane with the gravitas needed to win the nomination in a new, centrist, fusion party, the the Republican. (No, I am not comparing Clinton to Lincoln). Hillary Roham knew she could not win on her own back then, but allied with the rascal Bill Clinton she eventually would. I do not endorse her policies, and would not vote for her in an election, but I do now believe – as I once did not – that she is a solid political mechanic.

      • USMCSniper

        You missed the point. She has failed at everything she has ever done with Bill or without Bill Clinton. As a matter of fact it was Bill who carried her long before the Whitehouse. It is also documented how she behaved as a first lady around the Whitehouse staff and Secret Service with a mouth so nasty and foul that would make a 1960's Marine DI blush. Her anti-semitic remarks are well documented as well.

  • USMCSniper

    Part 2:
    Hillary Rodham Clinton has never gotten one single job on her own anywhere in her life. And when she got them she botched every single one of them. But now this inept failure is the Secretary of State and again failing miserably. Professor Tommy "The Commie" Emerson, her mentor at Yale, got Hillary Rodham first job assigned to the CPUSA financed defense lawyer Charles Garry in the Black Panthers Bobby Seale murder trial. The defense was funded by the Communist Party USA.

  • USMCSniper

    Part 3:
    When she applied for officer candidacy for the Department of the Navy JAG program after she graduated from Yale she was rejected by the Department of the Navy for as an "unfit as an officer candidate" because of her fellow traveler activities with CPUSA members and the radical SDS at Yale. Her fabricated story about her eyesight being the reason for rejection is nonsense. Professor Tommy "The Commie" Emerson also got her her law internship as the personal law clerk to Robert Truehaft, the head of the CA CPUSA and the Chief Counsel for the entire Communist Party USA. She not only worked for him as his law clerk for a year, but lived with Trueafts, who were both carding carrying CPUSA members.

  • USMCSniper

    Part 4:
    Edward Kennedy's lawyer, Burke Marshal, who was a friend and colleague of Robert Truehaft along with her Yale mentor Professor Emerson got her the job on the Watergate committee staff. She was outrightly fired by general counsel and chief of staff of the Watergate House Judiciary Committee, Jerry Zeifman, for lying, outrageous behavior (throwing tantrum tirades), unethical conduct, and serious Constitutional procedural violations. Mr. Zeifman, general counsel and chief of staff for the Watergate Committee, said he fired her, "Because she was a liar," in an interview. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality. Had she she submitted briefs like she wrote to a court she would have been disbarred."

  • USMCSniper

    Part 5:
    Hillary Rodham failed her Washington DC Bar Exam at least once, so she got a job at the University of Arkansas not on her own, but through Bill Clinton who was already an instructor on the faculty at University of Arkansas. She apparently wrote her Arkansas Bar Exam on site at the University of Arkansas which was under some very suspicious conditions for monitoring and passed it – you may suspect that this was not completely on the up-and-up! She only got her position at the Rose Law Firm as a political favor to Bill Clinton when he became Attorney General of Arkansas. And she was only made a partner in the Rose Law Firm as another political favor to Bill Clinton when he became the Governer of Arkansas. Her job there was funneling misappropriated monies through Edward Hubble for political purposes. She also deliberately had all the records of her activities at the Rose Law Firm burned when she was under investigation for Whitewater. This has been well documented.

  • USMCSniper

    Part 6:
    Her political appointments to corporation board positions at Tysons Food, Wal Mart, and other organizations where she really did nothing but collect monies were always for political favors owed her husband, both when he was Governer, President, and later as an ex-President. She doesn't even write her own books – and her editing according to her ghost writers is light skimming at best. She has ghost writers like Barbara Feinman, who wrote “It takes A Village” and she stiffs them by not paying them in full even when she gets multi-million dollar advances.

  • USMCSniper

    Part 8:
    Apparently, she is also into the occult. Hillary Rodham Clinton used New Age psychic Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for Mind Research, held séances at the Whitehouse to “channel” with the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt. In her own words, Mrs. Clinton states she had talks with Eleanor Roosevelt, Mohandas Gandhi, and Jesus Christ according to Carl Bernstein. An this nutcase wants to be President?

    • snottyhanky

      Well, she is clearly not a Christian,but, see Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grtow Rich" for his technique of his own personal 'cabinet', composed of historical figures he admired, as a source of inspiration and advice. This way precedes the New Age nonsense.

  • flyingtiger

    Hilary for president? I want her to immediately resign for giving the ground zero iman money. It is time for for moslems to start paying their own way!

    BTW, Eleanor Roosevelt told me in a seance that she never talked to Hillary. Another lie!

  • Spider

    Great posts guys! It is wonderful to be reminded of Hillarys' great accomplishments and
    exemplary character.

    When Gore lost the 2000 election, he and all of his people whined for years about getting "robbed" of the election. I think Hillary thinks she was robbed too, but has been smart enough not to cry about it in public. Instead, I think she's putting together her schemes in darkness and silence and will at some point strike like the cunning serpent that she is.

  • USMCSniper

    To paraphrase Ross Perot on Bill Clinton but apply it to Hillary Clinton; "I wouldn't hire Hillary Clinton as an assistant charwoman to clean the men's toilets on the midnite shift in the old immigration building in the bad part of old El Paso, Texas."

  • Nick Shaw

    Absolutely great compilation by USMCSniper! Terrific job! Now I want someone, like Dick Morris perhaps, due to his intimate knowledge of the subject matter, to backup everything the Sniper has told us for a national audience. On O'Reilly's show for instance. Can you do this Mr. Morris? Someone has to take this woman down before another phony is elected president.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Unless insanity is now the mainstream thought process of
    the American public, Democrats=progressives are finished.
    The left has so screwed us up that I can not think of how
    many centuries it would take for America to forget. The poison
    of the left is so foul that November will be and explosion of
    clean it up and throw out the trash forever……………..William

  • Trajan

    She would be worse than Obama, all of the malevolence without most of the incompetence.

  • posse101

    she would have been better off not taking a role in the administration and critiquing obama from her perch as senator. but greedy, me first, power hungry types like Hillary (and obama himself) feel they alone have the calling and will never knowingly take a backwards step in pursuit of that. but of course hillary didn't do that and now can effectively be called a sell out in addition to her many other personality and policy shortcomings.

  • Jim C.

    Oh my God. You guys wish! You wanted, SO BADLY, for Hillary to be the 2008 nominee; it's actually carried over. Hill-arious. No–2012 is Obama, and he's going to stomp you–again.

    So when Dick is wrong about this–and he is usually, demonstrably, wrong in his predictions–will FPM finally stop giving this clown attention?

    • http://www.shugartpoliticalaction.shugartmedia.com/index.html Tar_n_Feathers

      Obama in a landslide in 2012? Interesting prediction. Talk about wishful thinking. I can smell the fear from by back porch.

    • USMCSniper

      To the nation's detriment, you may be right unless the Republicans come up with a real leader with charisma and a clear vision for economic recovery , the women and minorities will vote for Obama en masse with or without Hillary Clinton as his VP. There are too many country club elitists and RINOs running the Republican Party, not conservatives that reflect the values of the majority of Americans, andif they select just another senile old insider fart in 2012 like dead man walking Dole in 1996 or like the great accomodator McCain in 2008 – and then they will lose in 2012!

  • Lori

    Do You Think The Democrat Party is grabbing at all they can get? Wow what A messed up system. It Is Called Kids Pretending to be political leaders and It Is Time For All This Bogus To End! Totally clean up the Government"s House! and Get both Parties out! and Start over!.Clinton years are over, Bush years are over! and they all seem to still want to play house. Oh This pretending is so Morbid! And the House is filthy Because they do not like to clean house and do not know how! They Are Children that are pretending to be something they are not! I Believe the Game is called Make Belief? Kids play that Game!

    • howard

      Throwing out both parties is not possible. The Democrats have a very substantial voter base, which you can see even now, with the bad economy. On the left there is the Green Party, which once made the Democrats lose an election. On the right, there is the Libertarian party, but that is not a serious contender.

  • USMCSniper

    Obama is a clandestine Muslim Marxist who is committed to making the United States a European style progressive democracy instead of a republic with a constitution and he is a con artist able to conceal his contempt well for whitey. Hillary Clinton is a power hungry closet communist bitter post menopausal hag without an ounce of personal integrity or class and she belongs in a federal penitentuary for the felonies she has committed not in the whitehouse,

  • Chezwick_Mac

    Dick Morris – brilliant political strategist that he is – tends to get excited at the drop of a hat. The only circumstance where Hillary would run would be if Obama's Presidency is in an absolute shambles. It may get there by 2012, but it ain't there yet.
