What is Hillary to do? If she stays on as Secretary of State she fights, from the inside, Obama’s incessant boobery and treacheries and helps to do what she can to save the world. However, by staying on she legitimizes and empowers the treacherous boob.
If she leaves, it will be seen as a clear vote of “no confidence” in Barack Obama, and the NObama Coalition will gain another public voice. But what happens to the world then? This is not a messianic “save the world” cult worship Hillary figure we are writing about. When we talk about “save the world” it is in the sense that someone has to be around to talk sense when American ally Mubarak is flung out and a wide open invitation to the Muslim Brotherhood is issued by Obama.
The bus might blow up this September and someone must be there to prevent treachery and boobery from killing us all. But at the same time, the bus must be stopped and there is only one person who can stop it and not blow it up too.
Every American should be agitated by the prospect of no Hillary to block or inside-organize against Barack Obama, particularly as September approaches. Hillary Clinton will be indispensable this September when at the United Nations plots to destroy Israel will rise once more and there must be someone genuinely committed to the security of Israel.
But Hillary Clinton might not be able to thwart Obama’s treacheries anymore. Every American should be chilled to the bone marrow by the latest news that Barack Obama will remove all sensible advice from his “in” box in favor of planned and organized treachery/boobery:
“The Los Angeles Times reports that Barack Obama has decided to shed his consensus approach to leadership and start making decisions on his own:
In the first two years of Obama’s presidency, his top aides had grown accustomed to a process in which Obama drew out and explored the views of his full team and searched for a consensus — decision by ballot, some called it.
Increasingly, however, that process has changed, according to a wide group of Obama’s personal friends, informal advisors and top aides interviewed during the spring. In recent months, they say, the president has been relying more heavily on his own instincts and feeling less impelled to seek accord among advisors. …
“I think he reached a point where he had to trust his instincts, and there was nothing left to inform his decision except to do that,” said one advisor who is intimately familiar with the president’s thinking on foreign policy matters and spoke on the condition of anonymity.“
“The subtext to this meme is that Obama’s team is apparently not creating much consensus any longer, or that the President is outside of whatever consensus develops. This might explain the slow march of Obama’s economic advisers out of the administration, as Obama insists on continuing the economic policies that have led to stagflation. The story might be that Obama is getting increasingly isolated from his team on policy decisions, which is a little easier to believe than turning up one’s nose to coordination and support.”
Obama operating on “gut instinct” recalls a Richard Nixon era joke: Nixon is offered drugs by a hippie who advises Nixon to “turn on.” Nixon replies “Turn on who?” With Susan Rice at the United Nations, Israel and friends of Israel will quickly learn the answer as to which nation Obama will “turn on.”
Ben Smith of Politico is every ready with a bucket to drop into the excuses-for-Obama well. Smith has typed his fingers raw with declarations that Obama’s support among Jews is solid as week old West Side bagels. But today Smith writes that all might not be well as some Jews recognize that Obama is not a friend and not to be trusted:
“David Ainsman really began to get worried about President Barack Obama’s standing with his fellow Jewish Democrats when a recent dinner with his wife and two other couples — all Obama voters in 2008 — nearly turned into a screaming match.
Ainsman, a prominent Democratic lawyer and Pittsburgh Jewish community leader, was trying to explain that Obama had just been offering Israel a bit of “tough love” in his May 19 speech on the Arab Spring. His friends disagreed — to say the least.
One said he had the sense that Obama “took the opportunity to throw Israel under the bus.” Another, who swore he wasn’t getting his information from the mutually despised Fox News, admitted he’d lost faith in the president.
If several dozen interviews with POLITICO are any indication, a similar conversation is taking place in Jewish communities across the country. Obama’s speech last month seems to have crystallized the doubts many pro-Israel Democrats had about Obama in 2008 in a way that could, on the margins, cost the president votes and money in 2012 and will not be easy to repair.“
JournoLister Smith, like all JourniListers, spends a great deal of text as a WORM (What Obama Really Meant), assuaging any fears that the electoral damage from Obama’s “Auschwitz borders” treacheries is anything more than “marginal.” But Smith cannot cover up the Obama stink with a Politico burka:
“Based on the conversations with POLITICO, it’s hard to resist the conclusion that some kind of tipping point has been reached.
Most of those interviewed were center-left American Jews and Obama supporters — and many of them Democratic donors. On some core issues involving Israel, they’re well to the left of Netanyahu and many Americans: They refer to the “West Bank,” not to “Judea and Samaria,” fervently supported the Oslo peace process and Israel’s unilateral withdrawal from Gaza and believe in the urgency of creating a Palestinian state.
But they are also fearful for Israel at a moment of turmoil in a hostile region when the moderate Palestinian Authority is joining forces with the militantly anti-Israel Hamas.
“It’s a hot time, because Israel is isolated in the world and, in particular, with the Obama administration putting pressure on Israel,” said Rabbi Neil Cooper, leader of Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El in Philadelphia’s Main Line suburbs, who recently lectured his large, politically connected congregation on avoiding turning Israel into a partisan issue.
Some of these traditional Democrats now say, to their own astonishment, that they’ll consider voting for a Republican in 2012. And many of those who continue to support Obama said they find themselves constantly on the defensive in conversations with friends.”
It’s going to be a black September indeed if Obama’s “gut instinct” treacheries are allowed to disgorge at the United Nations and at the highest levels of the American government. That’s what will happen without Hillary there to remain loyal to allies and America. Some Obama Dimocrat Jews are nearing the River Jordan a.k.a. the Rubicon:
“I’m hearing a tremendous amount of skittishness from pro-Israel voters who voted for Obama and now are questioning whether they did the right thing or not,” said Betsy Sheerr, the former head of an abortion-rights-supporting, pro-Israel PAC in Philadelphia, who said she continues to support Obama, with only mild reservations. “I’m hearing a lot of ‘Oh, if we’d only elected Hillary instead.’”
Woe onto ye who supported treacherous Barack Obama and rejected Hillary Clinton. The tree is known by its fruit; the treacherous beget treachery:
“There’s an inclination in the community to not trust this president’s gut feel on Israel and every time he sets out on a path that’s troubling you do get this ‘ouch’ reaction from the Jewish Community because they’re distrustful of him,” said the president of a major national Jewish organization, who declined to be quoted by name to avoid endangering his ties to the White House.

Matasar remembers his friends’ worries over whether Obama was “going to be OK for Israel.” But then Obama met with the community’s leaders during a swing through Cleveland in the primary, and the rabbi at the denominationally conservative synagogue Matasar attends — “a real ardent Zionist and Israel defender” — came back to synagogue convinced.
“That put a lot of my concerns to rest for my friends who are very much Israel hawks but who, like me, aren’t one-issue voters.”
Now Matasar says he’s appalled by Obama’s “rookie mistakes and bumbling” and the reported marginalization of a veteran peace negotiator, Dennis Ross, in favor of aides who back a tougher line on Netanyahu. He’s the most pro-Obama member of his social circle but is finding the president harder to defend.
“He’d been very ham-handed in the way he presented [the 1967 border announcement] and the way he sprung this on Netanyahu,” Matasar said.
A Philadelphia Democrat and pro-Israel activist, Joe Wolfson, recalled a similar progression.
“What got me past Obama in the recent election was Dennis Ross — I heard him speak in Philadelphia and I had many of my concerns allayed,” Wolfson said. “Now, I think I’m like many pro-Israel Democrats now who are looking to see whether we can vote Republican.”
It’s not just on Israel that Hillary Clinton matters a great deal. Who else but Hillary can use the word “HELL” in so heavenly a manner – so heavenly that even Republican/conservative HotAir hears, albeit temporarily and with tongue-in-cheek – choirs?:
“It seems the “useful idiot” assessment is no longer a partisan thing.
Former President Jimmy Carter and former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari were hoping to visit the State Department this week to brief officials on their recent trip to North Korea, but nobody at the State Department was available to meet with them…
It’s no secret at all that the Elders’ trip to North Korea was viewed as extremely unhelpful by the governments both in Washington and Seoul. Chris Nelson reported on April 29 that Clinton reacted strongly when asked in a morning meeting if she wanted to meet with Carter. From the Nelson report:
“The performance of President Carter and his delegation in N. Korea this week was either shameful or fatuous…or both…and exemplifies why Carter had no…zero…USG support going in, and even less coming out, per an alleged eye witness account of Sec. St. Clinton at the morning meeting the other day:
“‘Do you want to meet with Carter?’ Clinton is looking at papers, and just says ‘No.’ Then she pauses, looks up and adds, ‘HELL no!!!’”
If you don’t understand why she’d be so mad, reread this post and all shall be revealed. Now that primary season is upon us and we’re fantasizing about longshot candidates who might conceivably give The One a run for his money, it’s worth remembering that there’s someone out there who checks a lot of the boxes we’re looking for. She’s got Senate experience and major foreign-policy chops; she spent more than a year attacking Obama on a daily basis in 2008, and is linked by marriage to a centrist whose economic record is farrrrrr better than Obama’s is. And of course it’s not unheard of for presidential candidates in one party to end up under consideration to join the ticket of the other. Just ask Joe Lieberman.
We’d have to straighten her out on economics, granted, but look at it this way: She can’t be any worse than Newt or Huck. And she knows exactly how to mock Obama. Dude — I think this is happening.”
No, it’s not just Israel, or North Korea, or foreign policy. While Obama evolves from amoeba to paramecium on gay marriage, from overt gay-bashing to an S&M relationship with gay people – Hillary Clinton outrageously, flamboyantly, expressed her views on a matter of mostly domestic concern:
“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday offered her approval of New York’s just-passed same sex marriage law.
Calling Friday’s vote by the New York state legislature “historic,” the former New York senator was careful in her remarks not to overstep her bounds as an Obama administration appointee.”
What bounds? The bounds are self imposed and can be cast off at will. Hillary Clinton has no bounds as Americans look for leadership and Democrats want the party of FDR to return to life and wash away the stench of Obamination.
Recently, amidst the legislative sausage making and distraction of various other Weiners, the question of Hillary Clinton’s future rose up in Liz Smith’s gossip column:
“However, it is Mrs. Clinton who intrigues. Many still think this woman subliminally seeks the presidency sooner rather than later. With the economy stymied and the job situation desperate, Barack Obama is vulnerable. It’s nice that Osama Bin Laden is dead, but you can’t run for re-election on the body of a dead terrorist. [snip]
Mitt Romney looks presidential. He always has. Bachman is obviously dead serious and working hard at learning.
Still, Mrs. Clinton could eat them both up and spit them out without so much as appearing to chew.
Would she do the “unthinkable” and challenge her own party’s sitting president, the man who elevated her to the position of Secretary of State?
A story was floated the other day that Mrs. Clinton was resigning her Secretary of State post next year because she had “other things she wanted to do.” It was suggested she might want to run the World Bank? Her aides shot down the story as “bogus” and reiterated yet again that she would never seek another run at the White House.
So that’s that. Because politicians never change their minds, do they?
Yes, a Clinton run would be savage and terrifying. Hillary running for president again?! All that drama? I think everybody working on cable TV would have to demand defibrillators right under their desks.”
We’ve addressed many times before the perils and strategies for Hillary Clinton as the 44th person to take the presidential oath of office. The perils are (she would remain a target of Republicans/conservatives) she would be called a “racist” yet again – but jobless African-Americans and degree heavy idiots who joined a cult in 2008 perhaps can now see and feel the calamity wrought by their former fashion foolishness.
As to the strategy: drive Obama from office – make the economic critique clear. Towards that end, the latest taunts from the Clinton Winter quarters, via James Carville:
“Memo to the president
Re: Suggestions on How to Talk About the Economy
Sir, I’m sure the last thing that you want is some unsolicited advice from a pundit, particularly a pundit who comes out of the Clinton camp, but CNN has an unspoken policy of publish or perish and with a daughter entering the 11th grade and college costs being what they are, I can’t afford to perish just yet.
First of all, to quote one of your predecessors, “I feel your pain.”
This is one of the nastiest and most honest taunts, filled with bile and contempt, to ever be expressed. Not only is the reminder that there is a Clinton camp versus an Obama camp but the hostility between the two camps is blatantly acknowledged. The taunt is spiced with the goat’s head of “I feel your pain” – a tart way of saying “F*ck You, As*hole – you’re getting what you deserve and you don’t know what the f*ck you are doing, and we know you don’t know what the f*ck you are doing, and we’re going to tell everyone in every f*cking way that you don’t know what the f*ck you are f*cking doing.”
But that’s Carville. What about the original and inimitable “Mr. I feel your pain”? Why he’s providing “unsolicited economic advice“:
“The ever-entertaining tension between the Clintons and the Obamas continues. This week, Bill Clinton appeared on the cover of Newsweek, near this caption: “14 Ways to Save America’s Jobs”. The title of the article is even better: “It’s Still the Economy, Stupid.”
As you might expect, Clinton offers up a mixed bag of ideas in the Newsweek piece – some good (“cut corporate taxes”), some silly (“paint rooftops white”), and some vague (“analyze the opportunities”). For a purported economic guru, this is unimpressive stuff. Still, at least Clinton is putting a few ideas out there to do something to fix the economy, and they’re not all completely terrible. However, Clinton is assuming Obama actually wants to save the American economy, as do Greta Van Susteren and Byron York in this clip.
That doesn’t appear to be a safe assumption anymore – if it ever was.”
Van Susteren and Byron York hear, as we do, Bill Clinton say to Barack Obama:”F*ck You, As*hole – you’re getting what you deserve and you don’t know what the f*ck you are doing, and we know you don’t know what the f*ck you are doing, and we’re going to tell everyone in every f*cking way that you don’t know what the f*ck you are f*cking doing.”
Hillary Clinton is working her way through and out of her dilemma. Hubby and Jimmy are helping. By the end of September, we’ll know how Hillary untangles her dilemma and speeds along.
