Hillary Told You So
As Democratic disgust with Obama’s debt fumbling spreads, Clinton supporters recall her ’3 a.m. phone call’ warnings—and angry, frustrated liberals are muttering that she should mount a 2012 challenge.
At a New York political event last week, Republican and Democratic office-holders were all bemoaning President Obama’s handling of the debt-ceiling crisis when someone said, “Hillary would have been a better president.”
“Every single person nodded, including the Republicans,” reported one observer.
At a luncheon in the members’ dining room at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Saturday, a 64-year-old African-American from the Bronx was complaining about Obama’s ineffectiveness in dealing with the implacable hostility of congressional Republicans when an 80-year-old lawyer chimed in about the president’s unwillingness to stand up to his opponents. “I want to see blood on the floor,” she said grimly.
A 61-year-old white woman at the table nodded. “He never understood about the ‘vast right-wing conspiracy,’” she said.
Looking as if she were about to cry, an 83-year-old Obama supporter shook her head. “I’m so disappointed in him,” she said. “It’s true: Hillary is tougher.”
Hillary Clinton for president ad hits airwaves She has more experience working in and with the White House than most living presidents. She is one of the most admired women in our nation’s history. Let’s make sure the president we should have elected in 2008 will be on the ballot in 2012. Hillary 2012: Hillary Clinton for President. Start now. Where there’s a Hill there’s a way,” says an ad that began running on television in New Orleans Wednesday.
Politics and the Penis
Women were long considered unsuited for public office because hormones cloud their judgment—but men like Anthony Weiner are the ones who can’t think straight, says Leslie Bennetts. Just consider the evidence.

Rep. Anthony Weiner had a successful career, an impressive wife and a bright future — until a technological misstep turned his penis oversharing into a national scandal. These days he’s got so much company it makes your head spin.
Men’s obsession with the male member has produced “a rash of penis photos” that led Jon Stewart to ask Kristin Schaal, The Daily Show’s “senior women’s issues correspondent,” what it all meant.
This phenomenon “can be chalked up to the age-old misconception that women want more information about your penis, and that seeing it will make you more attractive,” Schaal explained. “Men need to realize that their penis has far more power over them than it does over us.”
Glamour Interview with Secretary of State Hillary ClintonAugust 7, 2011
Hillary Rodham Clinton (yes, the Rodham’s back, in case you haven’t heard) is the most-traveled U.S. secretary of state ever—more than Condi, more than Kissinger—having, at press time, visited 85 countries and logged 582,002 miles in her two and a half years on the job. I joined her fast-paced trip to the Middle East and Africa this June, covering four countries in six days. Her mission: to further U.S. interests abroad, encourage democracy and development and, as always, to sound the alarm for equal rights for women.
“No country can thrive when half of its people are left behind,” Secretary Clinton says repeatedly during the trip. “If you don’t see all citizens get the rights and freedoms they deserve, you are on the wrong side of history.”
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 21% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21
The Untransformational President
Barack Obama hoped to elevate American politics. Instead, our politics may destroy his presidency.
In case you missed Donald Trump calling Obama CLUELESS on last night’s ON THE RECORD
My suggestion, PUMAs, is that we write to Madame Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, the DNC, and any person or political entity you can think of, and request, beg, plead, argue for her to primary Presdient Clueless. Write every day, twice a day…
Also, write and protest Newsweek’s photo and sexist characterization of Michelle Bachmann on their cover. Whether or not you support her political stances, please support women who have the “audacity” to campaign for political office, and defend them from sexist / misogynist attacks.
Please note that fauxgressive blogs are once again censoring (read: banning) commenters who suggest primary runs against Obama. So much for the boiz support of “democracy” and free speech.
Speaking of fauxgressives, the Obots are back to their old games. They are desparate. Meanwhile other obama supporters, athletic and otherwise, are wondering “wha… huh?”, what the heck happened to our messiah?? Brazille, Tingles Matthews, Maher, and many others are awaking from their boy-crush kool-aid induced oComa.
Also, the barbarians rioting in London are stopping women in the streets and demanding that they strip naked.
Boys will be boys, and that’s one of the primary reasons we need an experienced, brilliant, politically astute, feminist, principled adult in the White House. We need a President who recognizes that women make up 52% of the population. We need a powerful champion for women and girls. We need a woman in the White House, and that women is Ms. Hillary Clinton.
Do what you can, and keep on doing it, if not for (y)ourselves, then for our daughters, nieces, younger friends. Enough is enough already!
Obama said he wants to be re-elected so “I can finish my project”!
Obama: still Clueless.
