Lot of obsessed people. Voting is one day next year.
Doesn't matter her sordid past or her ineptness. All she has to do is offer
goodies to illegal immigrants and welfare recipients and she's got it in
the bag. Just like the guy before her did. Sickening!
I'm not a "Hillary fan." I hope Jim Webb (the only true and real
conservative in the race from either party) is nominated as the Democratic
candidate -- he's the only one I could really support.That
being said, Ms. Clinton is a lot less worse for the USA and its people than any
of the Republican candidates, announced or unannounced, for the Republican
nomination. I don't want any of them (including Ms. Clinton), but she is
by far the lesser evil. It looks like I'll be writing in my border collie,
who is far more qualified than any of the named candidates (except Webb) in this
race this time around.It sure would be nice to b able to vote FOR
someone . . .
I think debate and discussion of ideas is good. I'm happy to see
Republicans fielding a variety of candidates. Republicans are not on the
"wrong side of society at the moment." Rather, they offer fresh ideas
and candidates. They probably don't wear sunglasses while ordering food in
an establishment while trying to connect with "regular Americans" nor
will a Republican candidate park in a handicapped parking spot... Republicans
generally pump their own gas and drive their own cars. The Republican Party
offers a line-up of candidates of both genders. Not a single Republican
candidate voted for the Iraq War. Most of the Republican candidates for
president have actually come up through the ranks and have had their bills
passed. They have had experience in the workplace. Had they been Secretary of
State, a Republican would have picked up the phone and not made up a phony story
while the U.S. Ambassador was being murdered. BTW, there's more to
Benghazi than meets the eye...
I'm ready for a legitimate third party - someone to truly represent the
middle class. Republicans represent the rich and business, and the Democrats
represent the poor. I want someone to represent me.
The really odd thing about liberal Obama and Hillary voters are that they tend
to be the younger people, and older voters tend to vote conservative.That's odd in that the younger voters are going to be the ones who
eventually wind up paying all the bills that the liberals rack up. The way
things are going, younger voters won't even have social security available
to them. Nevermind that they will be stuck with paying off 20trillion in debt
(and counting).Older voters really should be voting liberal, so they
can get more "free stuff" before they pass away since the democratic
party seems to be the party to belong to if one is inclined to load up on free
I'm confused?So the Republican platform is to go negative? Why won't the generate and produce better ideas than Mrs. Clinton
and win my vote with a legitimate better option?I'm looking
forward to the day when the "Bob Rumson" tactics end. Until then
we'll all be forced to choose between the lesser of two evils.And to all you 'haters' out there... Thanks a lot! It's
because of your ignorance candidates get away with and win negative campaigns.
You're their target audience.
LOU Montana: "Republicans fear she will take this country back from
corporate America."Why on Earth would you think that she even
try to do that?Hillary Clinton is in bed with Wall Street and
Corporate America more than any Republican has ever been. She takes big money
donations from them (and foreign governments) and has fought FOR them much more
than she has fought against them. Who do you think is paying her $300K for
giving a speech and giving her huge book advances?You have nothing
but your caricature of the Republican party. Your comment has no basis in fact.
Very stupid arguments! Republicans fear she will take this country
back from corporate America.
There is not an ideal candidate out there and will never be. Money and
mudslinging keep them away. That said, Hillary is better than any Republican I
have seen that has interest in running. I left the Republicans when I realized
they are only concerned about the Party and not the Nation. I had hopes for
Huntsman until he allied himself with Lee and then he lost all my respect. None
of it will matter in the end as we are now being run by the money interests. You
can buy anything with money. Slavery in not dead, just changed. Our elected
officials are slaves to their donors.
girl.in.slc: "...there really isn't an argument over her ability to
govern- she's proven more than capable."I wonder what
Ambassador Stevens (if he were still alive) and the other 3 killed in Libya
would have to say about that statement?If by "ability to
govern", you mean that she would fit right in with the big government
establishment, lobbyists, and special interest groups; then you might be right.
Please provide one meaningful reason why she SHOULD be elected, based on
experience, qualification, and what she intends to improve this nation (and not
further the fundmentally destroy America road we're currently on).
For conservatives, the hope is that we can say she represents "Obama's
failed policies and lawlessness." Unfortunately for them, this is a
contrived-in-the-bubble notion. In fact, Obama has been a wildly successful
president. He passed ObamaCare, killed Bin Laden, brought the economy back to
life (after it was ruined by a republican), reestablished relations with Cuba,
watched over mainstreaming gay rights, and negotiated a preliminary deal with
Iran. And the "lawlessness" charge is just a frustrated
conservative base lashing out in displeasure at his response to the
parliamentary games republicans decided to play beginning in 2008. There is only a small (yet vocal) group of old white people who think this a
"failed presidency." Keep on thinking that! The rest of us will elect a
democrat in 2016.
Hillary is Teflon--none of these accusations from the GOP are gonna stick. They
threw all these arguments at her for years and they now have no meaning. Gonna
bring up Whitewater? How about Vince Foster? How about that staying home and
baking cookies statement? Yeah, you're just boring us...again.In contrast, the five or six dwarfs running for the GOP nomination will have
their own problems and I'm sure we will dredge up the past for them.
Really, you think Ted Cruze, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, and Marco Rubio are going
to beat her even with Sheldon Adelson's and the Koch bros money? Do you
think Jeb Bush is going to get past his brother's legacy as the worst
president in modern times? The demographic has changed even more
from 2012 and the GOP can only win seats in Congress in off-presidential
elections, for now. We will not see a GOP president until they embrace the needs
of the majority of Americans, not just the 1 percent.
Its too bad demo's. don't try to come up with someone/anyone who is
NOT Hillary. Hillary means 4 more yrs. of Obama's failed
policies and lawlessness.NO DOUBT the lamestream media will try
their darndest to get Mrs. Bill elected; the question is WILL they be enough for
her to be able to take her ASSUMED coronation?10 yrs. ago I would
have said that her besties in the media could put her "over the top" -
today I'm not so sure due to social media outlets that provide an
alternative news source.
I'm going to get real tired of the Republicans yelling about Benghazi over
and over again. The GOP is going to self-destruct this next election cycle. They
don't have a prayer of winning the Presidential election.
Never been a big Hillary fan, but I'd vote for her in a heartbeat over any
Republican who supports that trainwreck of a party (to use their own tired
metaphor) and its totally vacant house of ideas.
Girl.in.slcName her accomplishments. Besides getting elected to the
senate on her husbands coattail. What has she done? Specifically,
All of the arguments in the article are correct. However, it's unclear
whether that will be enough to keep Hillary from becoming president. She has a
vast fund-raising machine (regardless of the country of origin), lots of backing
in Hollywood and in the media, some super-wealthy backers, awill be continually
given the benefit of the doubt in the press, and will try (with some success)
that she (like Obama) would be "something new" in the White House.
There she goes again!* Just misspoke of her grandparents migrating
to America.* Was against illegals getting a drivers license, and now
supports it.* Flipped her views on gay marriage.Can't
trust the words coming out of mouth
FanOfTheSith, girl.in.slc., Brave Sir Robin, and Hutterite all make sane and
sound reasons why Hillary will become the next POTUS!Nothing has
changed since 2012 with respect to the elctorate that should encourage the
Repubs. In fact is has worsened for them. There are more minorities with the
projection of and increase of 3-4% more minority voters this election. There
are more young voters this election. Demogrphics, demographics, demographics
and the electoral college will doom the Pubs. All the sound bite Benghaaaaazi
jaw flapping will be for naught. What is fact is fact. Its the math! it will
be Scoreboard Hillary!
Hutterite- Re Benghazi, After five congressional hearings and one
state department investigation, they concluded there was no conspiracy.
It's the only thing Republicans have, so they'll continue to use it as
a political talking point.
I'm not going to type 'Benghazi' five times. But that's
about it. Nobody is going to change anyone's mind. This entire
exercise is just about completely in the bag already.
Republicans can argue all they want about why Hillary shouldn't be
president, but at the end of the day she will be because Republicans can't
stop shooting themselves in the foot. They'll naively make their own
campaign about social issues like gay marriage, and whether or not they're
right, Republicans are on the wrong side of society at the moment. Whoever the
Republican candidate is, he'll defeat himself by campaigning on social
People can disagree with her policies, but there really isn't an argument
over her ability to govern- she's proven more than capable. Due to her time
as First Lady and as Secretary of State, she's built up relationship with
foreign countries and proven a very efficient leader. Hopefully,
we'll have more politicians who will take her approach to foreign policy to
heart to prevent future confrontations.
Use caution here GOP. Too much fault finding can backfire. I would be more
interested in your aspirations in leading the country. First time is on her side
with being the first woman to make a run for the presidency and I think one of
the key factions that is going to be watching the main stream media exchange
among the candidates are the today's college age generation. Although
Hillary is a big political name, excessive critique of her just might spot light
her among the young generation as someone to be sent to the Whitehouse. Again
Like all the scandals of the Obama administration, I'm sure that all the
Hillary supporters will put forth the idea that all 5 of these reasons are
"phony". I think all 5 are valid issues that she must address. We will
see if she is up to the task.Every candidate has some kind of
baggage. Most will face challenges that they must overcome to get elected and
Hillary is no exception. Just like the eventual Republican nominee, Hillary will
be able to count on a certain percentage of the electorate to vote for her no
matter what. It is that 20% or so in the middle that both sides must fight for.
Who needs even one argument to defeat Hillary Clinton?Any argument
is a waste of time.Just state all the facts and the voters
decide.It really is a no brainier.
Hillary shouldn't even be considered by democrat, republican, independent
and so forth.She has proven herself to be incompetent, inept and not
able to make good decisions in real time. We need a real leader to be
president. Not another profiteer.
