Abandon Ship...

So... Hillary begins the journey of distancing herself from the administration she has steadfastly supported after losing the DEM nomination 6 years ago. She apparently has been openly questioning Nobama's position regarding Syria and his lack of leadership dealing with "Hard Choices" concerning foreign diplomacy. I suspect it will not be too long before the "Who Would You Call"? in times of international emergency... She did however call Huber Chump to clarify that her remarks had nothing to do with his leadership, policies, or his administrations dealing with world issues. So I guess what she meant to say is I did not in anyway intend to defame, slander, cause emotional distress, or give you the boo-boo lip... with my comments...

A couple of points to consider:

o Benghazi was not a direct result of Hillary's shared ineptness dealing with "Hard Choices". Her response on the other hand "What Does It matter Now"? speaks volumes of where she really does stand and should be questioning her own lack of action in tough situations.

o Even though she is posturing for a failed presidential run; I would think that as long as you are part of the failing administration you would at least wait a little more time before abandoning ship...



Ironically if she is going to have a chance at the DEM nod for a run she is going to have to turn on the very same administration to garner bipartisan support. I guess her slogan will be it's not my fault... I am interested how more frequent the "questioning" the current administrations last 6 years and how she is going to spin how much better it will be when she is in charge.

Please note, I am not part of the He-Man woman Haters Club. I am just completely disenfranchised with the complete two party system and collective failure to serve their country. I would like it to come down to past track record and tangible successes in the political arena; both of which she lacks sorely. I guess her other go-to slogan can be " I may not be the best choice but I am better than the other guy... cue circus music and the clowns, it is going to be a long year and a half.

Hillary has no real record on which to run. Her support primarily comes from the romantic notion of electing the "first woman President." This is much the same as in 2008 where a large part of Obama's support was based not on the reality of his politics or experience in governing but on the romantic notion of electing the "first African-American President" (with all due deference to Bill Clinton). Most of the country by now knows what we got in that deal:

No hope or change - just despair and pain.

In the context of Hillary and Obama's foreign policy, I found his story particularly humorous:

Speaking of foreign policy, this article by Richard A. Epstein posted at hoover.org does a wonderful job of explaining the failures of this administration - not just taking pot shots but explaining in detail the reasons for the failures and their effects in the long and short term. A very good read for anyone wanting FACTS.

OK fellas, let's pretend that Hillary DOES run, Name the Republican that beats her!

I cant say that I can... However as I continue to rant; we do not need another novelty or social experiment. My question would be; On what basis or platform does she run on? I am not even trying to be on the hater express; I just cannot see what accomplishments or consistent successes she has in her tool box.

2016 looks to be another circus pitting the American people against each other as opposed to healing the country.

@HMJC: I do not view women in leadership positions as 'novelties' (think Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merkel, Golda Meir, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria etc.) Hillary would NOT be a novelty. If anything, it seems we guys have consistently made a mess of things.

I happen to think that women are intensely deliberative individuals capable of rational judgment in many areas.

I think Hillary Rodham Clinton would make an excellent leader.

Well JM, we will just have to agree to disagree and make no mistake HRC is no Margret Thatcher...

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Aug 18, 2014 at 13:18 PM

OK. And.....Margaret Thatcher is no HRC!:)

"OK fellas, let's pretend that Hillary DOES run, Name the Republican that beats her!"

With the way things are going, I think Jeb Bush COULD do it. Each would negate the "dynasty" argument against the other, and eventually they would have to run on their RECORD. Jeb Bush has one. Hillary's most significant achievements were as First Lady.

Hillary's prepositioning for 2016 has not gone well - by any objective evaluation. But the romantic notion of the "first woman President" is the strongest argument FOR her election. I consider that to be a very weak reason for electing a president, but then again I've lived through Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush the Elder, Clinton, Dubya, and Obama. The vast majority of the voters in this country can't make that statement. They don't understand that romantic notions are the WORST reason for putting someone in charge of their destiny and giving them so much power.
