Ever since she emerged on the US national political scene, the mainstream media and Hollywood have treated Hillary Clinton as if she’s the be all end all of womanhood. That she is the world’s smartest woman. That her ascension to the ultimate seat of power, the presidency of the United States, was nothing less than inevitable.

We’re hearing it again now — that Hillary Clinton is a shoo-in for the presidency in 2016. She’s unbeatable. No Democrat stands a chance against her if she decides to run. The Republicans shouldn’t even bother to field a candidate.

Of course, they were all saying the same things about Clinton in 2007. She became quite evitable when Barack Obama came out of nowhere to steal her birthright with grins, celebrity and empty speeches.

Clinton will probably prove to be just as not-invincible in 2016. For all the hype that the media builds around her, Hillary Clinton is probably the most over-rated politician on the planet.

Not only is Hillary Clinton not an inspiring candidate, with no compelling backstory to fuel her run. Not only is Hillary Clinton a lousy stump speaker whose cadence and style careen between the wooden and the clownish. Not only did she prove to be a terrible campaign manager in 2007-08, elevating incompetent loyalists to positions of power when seasoned professionals were needed. Not only is Hillary Clinton all of that. Not only does Hillary Clinton have horrible taste in fashion (pantsuits…really?) She’s a lousy, blundering oaf when it comes to policy.

Hillary Clinton’s political career is filled with major, damaging mistakes.

The most current example of Hillary’s follies is Boko Haram. That terrorist group is currently holding about 220 girls hostage in Nigeria, and is almost surely doing unspeakable things to its captives. This morning broke with news that the Islamic terrorists are planning to use the girls as bargaining chips to get hundreds of its own jihadists released from prisons in Nigeria and probably elsewhere. Islamist groups across the world have been angling for a way to get the blind sheikh, the Santa-hatted mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center terrorist attack, released from prison in the United States. In fact, getting him released motivated the attacks on September 11, 2012, including the one in Benghazi, Libya, that Hillary Clinton later blamed on a YouTube movie.

It would not be a shock at all if Boko Haram demands the blind sheikh’s release in exchange for letting one or more of the captive girls go. If that happens, what do the #BringBackOurGirls brigades do?

Hillary Clinton’s role in all this?

Well, first, she appears to have started the sad-faced hashtag campaign that raised awareness of the girls’ plight but has in fact done frack all to actually win their freedom. What the tweet campaign did do, probably, is alert Boko Haram enough to split the captives up and make it all but impossible for any special forces to go get them without risking a bloodbath.

Worse than that, though, Hillary Clinton had the chance to help nip the Boko Haram problem in the bud to some extent. When Hillary reigned as secretary of State, she had the chance to label Boko Haram a terrorist group. Law enforcement including the FBI even pleaded with her to do that. She refused.

Slapping the terrorist group label on Boko Haram would not have destroyed them, of course. It takes drones and bombs and the occasional boots on the ground to do that. But it would have harmed the group’s ability to collect funds from sources in the United States and around the world. It would have empowered Interpol and other law enforcement agencies to pick up members of the group traveling internationally. It would have cut off some of their funds traipsing around the Islamist funding networks. It would have made it easier to go after them, and it would have made it harder for them to operate. Plus, it would have sent a strong signal that Boko Haram are personas non grata.

Hillary refused. Boko Haram kept on going, kept on killing, and is now subjected to a withering barrage of frowns and tweets.

So Hillary goofed on Boko Haram. Everybody makes mistakes, right?

Is there anybody rational and aware of the world outside themselves who believes a single word - assurance - from EITHER of the conjoined twins the Clintons? About anything?

OR from their bowing and scraping claques of the establishment Media?

Bur "What difference does it make now anyway"?

The same Clintons, representing as "compassionate," even "feel your pain" liberals which they manifestly are not, the "Democrtic Party".

Were it not the then high priest of that Democratic Party Edward Kennedy's "mishap" at Chappaquiddick could not be spiked these Clintons would have remained little fish in a big pond.

As surrogate, virtual clone, for the Kennedys however, from all the possible contenders, WJ Clinton "would do nicely".

If memory serves WJ Clinton has HIS special place in history as ONLY the second US Pres actually impeached by Congress.

Congressional Committee composed of members in the main au fait with ALL the "rules of he game" of politics fitting Mark Twain's cogent remark "There is no native American criminal class except Congress".

WJ to become as he is currently the "Pillar" and "respected elder statesman" of that "Democratic Party" and Friends.

WJ and presumptive heir Hillary Virtually usurping "respect" by members and allies from the present Capo of that "Party" BH Obama.

ALL playing THEIR game of politics as usual . THEIR game which has NOTHING to do with the published, documented for the world, including the "Representatives of the People", to whcih EACH "representative" swears/affirms oath to UHOLD AND Defend. The "reules and regulations" of the FUNDAMENTAL, the SUPREME LAW the Constitution of these United States.

Boko Haram could cost Hillary the 2016 presidential election. All it would take is a little video showing 300 little girls and reminding viewers that Hillary doesn't think their kidnappers are terrorists. Close with "It's about the children?"

Of course, the GOP is too inept to execute such a simple campaign.

Isn't it enough that with her vaunted political history and husband who'd been President of the US that she couldn't beat an unknown like Barack Obama who had no management experience and less than 4 years in the Federal Government?

How to shut up a Liberal: Simply ask for Hillary's list of "accomplishments." When they are stumped, you can help them out by mentioning that the "smartest woman in the world" flunked the bar exam.

Come on y'all, don'tcha you know none of this is ole Hill's fault. Even back during the Watergate era the "vast right wing conspiracy," led by those evil Koch brothers. recognized her greatness and conspired to get her fired from the Watergate Committee. Even now the State Department, now led by John "swift-water rafter" Kerry (who tried to void the sales tax on his new yacht to his home state of MA) says that Boko Harem is not a Muslim terrorist group. So there! And, in 2008, the Koch Brothers again conspired against her greatest to install the great (and still) unknown B. Obama as the democratic nominee for POTUS. Thus preventing Bill the opportunity to mentor yet another the intern of the month!

The only chance for America to survive the criminal enterprises of the Obama Administration is opening up elections for the TEA PARTY. All I have seen from the Democrats is their Socialist agenda of SOMETHING FOR NOTHING, cover ups and downright lies. The issues Benghazi, spying and holding up applications for non-profit conservatives and now VA administration betraying veterans and a paramount issue that Homeland Security secretly releasing 36,000 Criminal legal and illegal immigrants being Released onto U.S. Streets in 2013 Almost just as bad the hard-core Republicans is to vote for TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP. If the American tax payer doesn't rise up against Obama's Socialist agenda, this country is lost. The only chance to survive this tyranny and his minions spitting on the U.S. Constitution, is to vote for the TEA PARTY leadership. I retired from the Merchant Marine; worked all my life and I have never seen a government that has become an evil entity to the people. I have taken a dime from government handouts, but Obama insists of giving assistance to illegal aliens. President Barack Obama is pushing for amnesty even though the Congressional Budget Office determined it will devastate the wages of working class Americans. If Washington gets its way we will lose our jobs to illegal’s. Sal Russo, co-founder of Tea Party Express, does not speak for the majority of TEA PARTY PATRIOTS, or TEA PARTY.ORG and they give no relevance to any Amnesty or any clemency for illegal aliens.
We will be forced to pay even more outrageous health care costs to pay for these law-breakers. They already openly defy our laws, deface our flags and feed off our system. What will happen if they're rewarded for their illegal and illicit activities? No Senate bill should be passed or any new law until these fools in Congress, build a fence along our Southern border constructed as the one in Israel. The majority of people, who vote for the Democrats and lobotomized Liberals, will be foreigners looking for freebies from this government; probably with illegal voting. Remember the TEA PARTY will abolish the IRS, so everybody pays with no exceptions.

I am SO SICK of anyone in politics named Clinton - or Bush, for that matter. Hillary Clinton and her oafish spouse have no real world accomplishments - only government - then writing books to leech off their time in government - then getting paid to speak about their time in government. Frankly, I don't understand why at 69, which is the age Hillary would be when taking office, anyone would WANT that job. Is her ego and narcissism so great that she think no one else is qualified? Spare us.

It's really not any more complicated than that.

Next question?

I agree with you but you cannot discount the Revenge factor. Hillary is an angry, bitter woman. We've all met them. Some are strangers in the airport or doctor's office, some are co-workers (and, unfortunately, bosses), and some are family members.

Hillary lost the genetic lottery in a big way. Despite any feminist claims of changing people's view of unattractive persons, she has been 'hopelessly butch,' to use Camille Paglia's phrase, her entire life. Every woman wants to be the object of desire at some point and she has missed the boat entirely. She wants Revenge against those who mock and/or who are repelled by her appearance and shapeless physique.

She wants Revenge against her husband and, in her mind, heterosexual men who are all predators like him. The males in her inner circle have been uniformly unmasculine in mind and body. Of course, the overall Democrat population are of this ilk so it may not be entirely her doing.

She wants Revenge against those who cast her overboard during Watergate - back when even Democrat Nixon-hating zealots had some ethical standards.

She wants Revenge against any and all who opposed her dilettante, unelected, unwelcome, and unworkable stint as health care czar. It also burns her up that Obama and a Dem Congress passed the pilot program for full socialized medicine without her.

She wants Revenge against those who exposed her clumsy, obvious insider trading and land deals as she sought shortcuts to wealth in a backwater state she loathed. She wants Revenge against anyone who logically demonstrates that she and she alone had motive and opportunity to hide and magically find the Rose law firm records.

She wants revenge against Obama, of course, in so many ways. His election was the Big Bang of identity politics. He could have been speaking Greek the entire campaign and still won. The iconography and hero-worship had to be like ashes in her mouth.

And, of course, she wants Revenge against the GOP and conservatives who have done nothing more than point out the obvious failings, high crimes and misdemeanors of the 'two-for-one' deal that Just. Won't. Go. Away.

Hill n Bill predate the OJ murders on the national scene by two years. Steve Kroft is still doing his 60 Minutes gig after facilitating their mendacious interview (Monica Lewinsky was 20 years old at the time).

It's no wonder her health is failing after carrying around all those chips on her shoulder for so long.

Simply Hillarious.
Hillary is really the backup if Kerry falls apart.
Totally discredited.
"What difference does it make how they died."

The most arrogant woman in Amereica, just as Obama is the most arrogant illegal immigrant in America.
