We’re embarrassed by our headline so, like the Obama oil scandal soaked White House, we publish this late on a Friday and attach a question mark to lessen our shame. Bad, Big Pink. Slap yourself Big Pink.
But we do actually have a serious point we want to make. And make it we will.
We would never eat a wonderfully cooked and prepared and presented nutritious dinner, crafted from the best chefs, on the most expensive and gorgeous Czarist Russia dinnerware, René Jules Lalique goblets borrowed from Versailles, glittering, served in a castle by elegant tuxedo suited man-servants – if that dinner had fecal matter sitting on top of the main dish. Ugh. No. Hillary Clinton is that wonderful dinner. Barack Obama is that fecal matter.
That is as elegant/inelegant a way to say that not even the lovely Hillary Clinton could induce us to vote for Barack Obama. We write this because of all the gushing speculation lately that Hillary Clinton might replace Joe Biden and rescue Barack Obama in 2012.
Mess-iah Barack Obama needs a Savior and that Savior is Hillary Clinton. The Hope and Change is to dump Biden and beg Hillary to become Obama’s VP.
In 2008 we occasionally stated that an Obama/Hillary ticket would be perhaps difficult for us in the same way that a child might have an unsavory dinner vs luscious dessert moment. “Eat your vegetables and you can have your favorite dessert.”
No longer. Barack Obama is not a personality issue. True, here at Big Pink, Obama’s nasty self, his snubs, his self-worship and self-love, his Joker face, his head shape, his lanky akimbo self, the very air he breathes, his stinkiness which we can smell through the television – we have grown to dislike Obama personally. But as we have repeatedly written it is Obama and Obamaism that must be defeated, and defeated without mercy and without doubt.
“The person singularly responsible for these catastrophes and the policy singularly responsible is Obama and Obamaism.”
It is not only Barack Obama who must be defeated. Obama’s politics of division “situation comedy coalition” must be defeated and the Democratic Party resurrected and restored.
Now some Democrats are so disgusted, some newly minted Independents are so disgusted, many Republicans are so disgusted that their response is to say that they just want the Obama Dimocratic Party to die and that every Dimocratic elected official should be politically killed, – they never want to have anything to do with, ever again, with or for the Democratic or Dimocratic Party or anything it stands for, has ever stood for, or will ever stand for. We understand that level of disgust.
However, America needs the old Democratic Party. Republicans need the Democratic Party as it used to be before Barack Obama and his thugs so thoroughly trashed it, killed it, and replaced it with that monstrosity we dub the Obama Dimocratic Party.
As we have written before the Republican Party should be the party of the green eye-shade accountants always asking how much things cost and wanting America to either stay the same or go back to an earlier and mythical easier time. The Democratic Party, as it used to be, should be the party that wants to change things – for the better – and wants to move to the future.
The modern Republican Party, in other words, should be the stern “Daddy Party” of stereotypical fastidiousness, frugality, conservatism and the status quo. The modern Democratic Party, in other words, should be the smiling “Mommy Party” of stereotypical freshness, generosity, and daring coupled with change for the better. That’s what the Founding Fathers and Mothers wanted – faction versus faction leading to good government from the clash of ideas.
The Democratic Party, once resurrected, must be for CHANGE. But, it must be CHANGE FOR THE BETTER. We wrote that over and over and over in 2007-2008 but the Hopium guzzlers wanted change for the better or the worse – we got worse with Barack Obama.

Why write about Boo Hillary today? Well, some are trying to Boo Hillary for all the wrong reasons. Ben Smith of Politico for instance is developing into a more sober version of Hillary Hater Chrissy Hitchens. Smith wrote today that Governor Brewer of Arizona “whacks Clinton“. But anyone with any sense can see Governor Brewer was upset with Barack Obama (not Hillary Clinton) for not having the decency to tell her, after he promised to keep her informed in their meeting (within 2 weeks), about what Obama was going to do about the Arizona law.
Those that want to know what exactly Hillary said about the Arizona law and what we think about her clever comments may do so HERE. Jan Brewer’s appropriate rage was on display today and anyone can decide for themselves quite easily whether Ben Smith’s dishonest headline is close to the truth or whether we are the ones telling the reality based version of the truth. The video is “Obama Breaks Promise to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer” and Barack Obama’s lie to “get back to you within 2 weeks“:
Why write about Boo Hillary today? Events and speculation are gathering force. Obama’s endless boobery and wasted money and stimulus of scams mount in number. As we wrote before anyone else, Obama is the kiss of death. The boo boo Messiah is in need of a Savior because Americans are sick of him.
Here’s a sample of the panic in Big Media Obama circles:
“He certainly shares the irritation of his more liberal strategists that Big Business is being insufficiently grateful for all he has done for their needs and the nation. And he certainly believes in the power of the market much more than his detractors understand, or than his support for some emergency measures would indicate. He is likely to be surprised by the number of defections of big-money Democrats who raised contributions for him in 2008 and who will now — after the financial regulation bill is signed into law — begin a rigorous three-year-long effort to eliminate Democratic control of Congress and remove Obama from the White House.“
That’s a sample of Big Media protection of Obama and an example of Obama supporters being pre-tarred for defections away from the catastrophe which is Barack Obama.
Let’s not leave out the DailyKooks from our discussion:
“i voted for the asshole myself. and i rue the day that i did. the fucker’s been terrible. just terrible. perhaps the most disappointing prez ever, what with all the opportunities (huge majority in both houses) and mandates and what not.
the man is failing miserably.”
Failed poet and all around Obama shill and boob, (yup, the NothingLeft Bow wower) is on guard against any perceived attack on his manboob Obama:
“In a typical concern trolling article claiming to want to “save the Democratic Party,” as well as President Obama’s “progressive agenda,” Lanny Davis suffers a bit of a Freudian slip in writing off President Obama’s re-election chances (emphasis mine):
Two events last week involving elements of the Democratic Party who call themselves the “true progressives” show a danger they represent to the progressive change they say they want to effect. Together they offer President Barack Obama an opportunity for a “Sister Souljah moment” – perhaps to save the Democratic Party majority in both houses of Congress, as well as his progressive agenda in the last two years of his administration.
The last two years of Obama’s administration, eh? I guess Davis has given up on the 2012 elections, since a victory in that election would mean the Obama administration has another six years (and seven months) to go.
Democrats and President Obama should definitely follow the electoral advice of someone who has written off Obama’s re-election chances in 2012. Anyone who offers you advice, and who thinks you are going to lose even if you follow that advice, must definitely be acting in good faith. As such, Obama and Dems should seize upon this can’t-miss “opportunity.”
Bowers should go back to haiku butchering. No doubt what set Bowers to bow-wowing Lanny Davis was this quote from Lanny’s article:
“President Obama can confirm that the Democratic Party still stands for the centrist, Clintonian combination of fiscal conservatism, cultural moderation and progressive social programs that favor the middle class over the extremely wealthy — the best chance the Democrats have to hold their majorities in both houses of Congress and to enact the progressive changes that the critics on the left say they truly want.”
Lanny must have giggled for hours after writing that paragraph and the slap-slap two years assessment that let the dogs out.
But why Boo Hillary Clinton this Friday? Because the narrative to get Hillary to run with Barack Obama and thereby save his sorry ass must be, as ridiculous as the speculation is, stopped and stopped without blushing. Here’s some Fox News speculation from this month:
“While the country digests yesterday’s primaries, the White House political machine is undoubtedly working overtime on a more distant challenge – how to get President Obama reelected in 2012.
Here’s a prediction: the Obama administration will bounce Joe Biden off the 2012 ticket, and invite Hillary Clinton to run in his stead.”
In the comments, Kingsgrove served up a bouquet of the Hillary 2012 articles.
This article speculates Hillary will be in “New Hampshire, Next Summer”:
“Data Point #1: Barack Obama’s free-fall in the polls. Data Point #2: Hillary Clinton’s rising popularity.
The next steps:
December, 2010: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton resigns. Says she’s “accomplished what she set out to do” and has “restored America’s position and standing in the world.” Will devote time to writing a “major book about America’s challenges, and opportunities, in a complex, multi-polar world.”
June 2011 – August 2011: The Clintons, inexplicably and very publicly, summer on Squam Lake, in New Hampshire. Lots of Hillary sightings in and around the area, criss-crossing the state. Bill and Hillary at the farmer’s market. At a county fair. You get the idea. ‘What’s she doing in New Hampshire?’ the media wonders.
Labor Day 2011: Delivering the Goods: What I Learned at the State Department, What I Learned from Main Street hits the bookstores. It’s a big bestseller. And very critical of the Obama administration.
September 2011: Terry McCauliffe block-books a couple of floors in the Hampton Suites in Iowa City, IA, and the Manchester Marriott in Manchester, NH.”
This article on The Return of Hillary:
“I think the important datapoint here is the activist left’s fundamental rejection by the White House, borne out in the San Francisco protests which united Tea Partiers and Code Pinkers. Obama has disappointed his base in so many areas, either by failing to keep his promises or by dragging his feet on things they view as moral imperatives — on health care, on Gitmo, on Afghanistan, on security policy, on DADT, and on any number of other policies.[snip]
I honestly think there is an opening here for the return of Howard Dean. A strong ideological progressive who had an opening to gain the nomination in 2004 before his very public gaffe (amazingly, there was no YouTube then), he has little to lose and has already established a national network, and elected a great many Democrats with his broad national strategy. He has also been the most openly critical of this administration of any potential 2012 candidate in nearly all the areas I listed above. Clinton would need to leave the State Department in short order after the midterms, and even then, she would’ve had more of an opening if Obama had tacked further left on his foreign policy, not right.”
Amazing how the Dean speculation grows (hey – we started it back in 2009 with our shocker laughfest “Howard Dean For President!“). We are also pleased that our analysis of Hillary resigning after the 2010 elections is now the dominant narrative (our reasons for writing about that schedule is to keep Hillary off the campaign trail in 2010).
Sensible Moe Lane of RedState (shocking that it is a website called RedState that is sensible in Obama 2010 America) makes sensible sense:
“A good number of people – on both sides of the spectrum – are allowing themselves to speculate on the previously-unthinkable scenario that possibly, just possibly, the President might be successfully challenged in the primaries in 2012. This is America, right? People come out of nowhere to win elections all the time. Why, look at President Obama! He did precisely that in 2008.
Yes. That’s why he’s redesigned the system to keep it from happening in 2012.”
Moe Lane makes sense as he outlines all the schemes Obama has set up to prevent a challenge. But we would warn Lane and others that sometimes the traps you lay catch you. “But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane In proving foresight may be vain: The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft a-gley, An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain, For promised joy.”
“The president is starting to look snakebit. [snip]
And seems so snakebit, so at the mercy of forces. When you’re snakebit you get some sympathy, and some will come. With all the president’s woe there will be some counter-reaction among commentators, journalists and others. There will likely be among the Democratic leadership, too. “Love him or not he’s what we’ve got, and he’s what we have for the next two years. Help the guy, cool the criticism, punch back for him.” But it’s also true that among Democrats—and others—when the talk turns to the presidency it turns more and more to Hillary Clinton. “We may have made a mistake. She would have been better.” Sooner or later the secretary of state is going to come under fairly consistent pressure to begin to consider 2012.”
Snakebit Obama versus sunshiny, Hillary Clinton – from Peggy Noonan a day late and a dolphin short – Oh my!
Newser gets into the act too:
“Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden really ought to have each other’s job, argues Sally Quinn in the Washington Post. All the arguments against giving Hillary Clinton the VP job—that she might not be happy, that Bill would be a problem, etc.—have effectively evaporated, and certainly haven’t affected the job she’s doing as secretary of state. She’s a tireless campaigner, young enough to run herself in 2016, and a perfect counterpoint to Sarah Palin and her “girl power” push.
Biden, meanwhile, has been rehabilitated from a gaffe-prone loose cannon into a reliable adviser. But his passion is foreign policy, and friends say secretary of state is his dream job. So give it to him. Sometime after the midterm elections, just make the switch. A couple confirmation votes later, Hillary could be on the campaign trail.”
Courtesan Quinn wants Hillary to save Boo-boo Obama. Imagine that. Who coulda guessed? And Courtesan Quinn praising Hillary? We preferred it when Courtesan Quinn booed Hillary. Now Quinn sees Hillary’s fine, fine, qualities in the post Hopium haze (not quite, Courtesan Quinn wants Hillary to save Quinn’s Hopium dealer):
“Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden should switch jobs.
It makes sense for the Democrats, actually. Clinton has done an incredible job as secretary of state. First of all, she has worked harder than anyone should ever be expected to. She has managed to do the impossible: She is the ambassador of the United States to the world, maintaining her credibility while playing the bad guy to President Obama’s good guy, such as with North Korea, Iran and Israel, and still looking good. She has been a true team player. If Clinton is dissatisfied with her role, you would never know it. She has been loyal and supportive to the president and has maintained a good relationship with him and with others in the White House. If she is being left out of the policymaking, or being sent on trips to keep her out of town, she has not shown it. She is cheerful, thoughtful, serious and diligent. There are no horror stories about her coming out of the State Department. Most notable, though, is that Bill Clinton has not been the problem that so many anticipated. He has been supportive of her and of Obama, and he has stayed out of the limelight and been discreet about his own life.
In short, the arguments against Hillary Clinton being Obama’s vice president have pretty much evaporated.”
Courtesan Quinn is ever so generous, as only whores can be, as she sucks up to Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton. Courtesan Quinn gets the batteries and considers that “loyal” pet dog Hillary as she runs up the walk to lick Obama’s shoes:
“So, what kind of running mate would she be? We’ve seen the team player. Now consider Hillary the Democratic campaigner. She is tireless and relentless. Given the combination of votes that she and Obama got in the 2008 primary campaign, they would be a near-unbeatable team. Clinton also appeals to independents, but importantly, she would neutralize the effect of Sarah Palin. Whatever Palin came up with, Hillary could best her — and the Tea Party crowd as well. The Republicans would lose their “year of the woman” argument. And based on experience alone, Hillary is far more qualified to be president than any of the Republicans being considered today, including Mitt Romney, Bobby Jindal, Tim Pawlenty and Palin.
Clinton is also young enough to be the Democratic nominee at the end of an Obama second term; she will be in her late 60s in 2016 but still younger than Ronald Reagan was when he was inaugurated in 1981 (just shy of 70) and younger than John McCain, who was 72 when he ran in 2008. Most important, were she vice president and Obama were for some reason not able to fulfill his term, she would be ready to step in.”
All the Courtesan Quinn admiration for Hillary Clinton is to help Barack Obama save his sorry ass and the sorry asses of Courtesan Quinn and the other scum and low life Big Media and Big Blog Boys who trashed Hillary Clinton in 2008 and forever. Courtesan Quinn thinks Hillary is “young enough”. We suppose “likable enough” too. Courtesan Quinn wants Hillary to be the cat fight champion by beating up on woman Palin whom Courtesan Quinn thinks is a sure loser. But why do they need Hillary if Palin is such a loser? Why shouldn’t we all want Republicans to have a “year of the woman”? And why worry about independents now that it is too late? Courtesan Quinn and her whore boys and whore girls just want Hillary to be Savior to the Mess-iah of Boobery.
Courtesan Quinn inserts the batteries, ups the level on her vibrator, and fantasizes some more:
“It would not be out of the question for Clinton and Biden to switch jobs sometime after the midterm elections. After the president announced the switch, majorities in both houses of Congress would have to confirm Clinton to her new position, following the rules laid out in the 25th Amendment. She could then immediately begin campaigning for Obama for 2012, and she would also have at least two years in the White House as vice president to give her unassailable experience, clout and credibility. For his part, Biden would simply need Senate confirmation to get to work in Foggy Bottom.
Another scenario is that Obama could wait and choose Hillary as his running mate for 2012 and then have her step down as secretary of state so she could start campaigning. The catch with that plan, however, is that it would make Biden a lame duck and Obama would probably have to appoint an interim secretary of state.”
The courtesans and the boobs want Hillary to be the Savior of their Messiah. Boo to that.
