Update: [note: we posted this update Sunday night but for some reason it did not take.]
Sixty Minutes anyone? We don’t watch hostage tapes so we won’t watch this either.
We know that both Hillary and the Obamination are saying “let by-gones be by-gones and we are all over that 2008 reality”. We also know that they will say that at first, right after 2008′s Obama race-baiting, it was difficult to forgive and forget but now they are best of friends. Can any of this be true? Even if it does, we remember, and we do not forgive being called racists nor any of the other Obama/DailyKooks ugliness.
Is any of this lovey dovey real? Well, we remember the Hillary/Obama kiss of 2008 and it was as phony then as it is phony now. What we wrote in 2008 applies equally to today:
“Not since Michael Jackson kissed Lisa-Marie Presley has there been a more tortured embrace.
Michael Jackson/Lisa-Marie legally united for publicity – they untied themselves soon thereafter.”
As we document below, Barack Obama will do his utmost to make sure Hillary Clinton never becomes the 2016 nominee. Hillary’s tough and ugly job is to dance with demons until the time comes to cut their throats. We’ll play Cary Grant to notorious Ingrid Bergman and not like a minute of it.
So why the show? The Obamination needs Hillary’s hard poll numbers to overcome his flaccid droop. Hillary needs to gull Obama’s Hopium Guzzlers into complacency until we can take over the DNC again, squash the DailyKooks, and begin from there to restore America to sanity.
Want to know about Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama? Read on as we get real.
We live in Borgia Italy but too many Obama opponents who are usually smart continue to insist we are in 21st century America. We live in the Age of Fake but too many Obama opponents who are usually perceptive try to fit the world into their notion of truth. It’s so sad it’s laughable.
In 2008 at the Obama inauguration Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman, among others, pretended to play live music. We briefly wrote about that flim-flam in the context that it was another small example of the much greater Obama “Age of Fake”.
Comes inauguration day 2012 and all the talk is about Beyonce and the Marine Band lip synching songs. Somehow lost to Obama opponents, particularly those belonging to the party very smart Republican Governor Bobby Jindal correctly calls “the stupid party”, is the real lip synching scandal.
The real lip synching scandal is not Beyonce but the Senate and House Republicans at the Kabuki theater experience some fools expected to be about Benghazi.
Benghazi??? Isn’t that the place Mitt Romney completely ignored at the alleged foreign policy debate during last year’s presidential election? Benghazi was ignored when it mattered but somehow it is supposed to matter now.
Somehow, according to these dullards who sought to resurrect Benghazi as some kind of issue, fear of Benghazi led Hillary Clinton to hide under hospital beds faking illness for months. At least that silly notion is put to rest. Anyone who thinks Hillary Clinton cannot smash irksome ‘interrogators without a clue’ had only to watch Hillary go up against Senate and House Republicans “leaders”.
Before and after Hillary’s appearance we read all sorts of comments about all sorts of evidence that proves Hillary Clinton is a liar. Well, it that is true why wasn’t any of this incredible proof utilized to destroy Hillary? Here, take a look at what even Hillary haters (please note the worst Hillary haters are not on Fox News but on the left as we will discuss below) on Fox News had to say:
Note that in the video Jon Stewart says that there are serious questions about what happened in Benghazi and we deserve answers. We agree.
Is Benghazi important? You betcha. Should Republicans have attempted to “grill” Hillary. Yes.
But, as we will have to expound upon in another article coming real soon, questions about Benghazi have to be made relevant to what is happening NOW. “What difference at this point does it make?” is entirely correct. Cartoonist Ramirez on the “difference” might be funny but not the clue Republicans need to get.
Hint for Republicans that want to uncover what happened in Benghazi not act like fools: the nomination of John Kerry, the appointment of Denis McDonough, Egypt, F-16s, the coordinated attacks on Hillary by Barack Obama over foreign policy.
That article, made clear the Obama secret war against Hillary Clinton. But for the dullards who cannot accept the fact that the America they knew is no longer, that we live in Borgia Italy where palace intrigues and shadow boxing reign, all these dullards see is Hillary Clinton (along with Bill) and Barack Obama arm in arm walking happily along. These dullards are wrong.
It’s easy for dullards to see Hillary, Bill, and Barack as one corrupt whole. But that is shadowbox analysis and you do not win boxing shadows. For Republicans to win, or Obama opponents to win it is imperative to see beyond the shadows and tackle the shadow making machinery and players.
What do we mean by all this? We mean that most Republicans, conservatives, and otherwise sane Obama opponents assume Hillary Clinton will be the next nominee of the Obama Dimocrat party and that Barack Obama will do everything to get Hillary the nomination because (a) he owes his reelection to Bill Clinton’s oratorical skills and Hillary Clinton’s silence; (b) some sort of deal was worked out with Bill to secure Hillary the nomination and the presidency. This is all wrong.
Barack Obama and his minions will do everything in their power to destroy Hillary Clinton and make sure she does not get the nomination in 2016 let alone the presidency.
There is no way that the crazed Obama left is going to go back to the hated paradigm of clinton-bush-clinton-bush interrupted by Obama for clinton-bush years. The crazed left minions might think they love Hillary Clinton now, but wait until their overlords decide they will oppose Hillary and the minions will fall back into the Hillary hate line.
The crazed Obama left is not going to have Hillary Clinton, THE CLINTONS, be the culmination of their revolution by having Hillary inherit the mantle of Obama. The left might be crazed but it is not stupid and the leadership of the totalitarian Obama left is not about to surrender its power to Hillary and Bill and Terry and the hated DLC.
The crazed left is happy that Bill Clinton made some smart calculations in backing Obama. Loathe his decision or not Bill Clinton saw what many of us saw: Romney was a weak candidate unable because of RomneyCare to effectively attack ObamaCare from the get-go; and Romney would not go for the jujular and do what was necessary to take down Obama.
Bill Clinton made some smart calculations to survive and take the party back from Obama but he might have been too smart for his own good. Bill better have some other tricks up his sleeve because as we always have written:
“Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.”
The crazed left is not happy that Obama had to go to “racist” Bill Clinton and that Hillary Clinton is now more popular than their beloved Barack. The crazed left is looking for a candidate and a way to get rid of the Clintons and thanks to Barack Obama they think they have found the answer.
This past week the announcement of the Obama campaign organization’s new role was announced. Many within the Obama Dimocratic party are baffled and exposing the divisions within the party. But the answer to many questions about why this new organization has been formed is very simple: this latest version of the Obama campaign is the way to keep Hillary away from the nomination in 2016 and to keep Obama in control of the abomination he now owns:
“Dem officials fret over new Obama nonprofit
Some key Democrats worry that President Obama’s new Organizing for Action group will marginalize the traditional party apparatus, cannibalizing dollars and volunteers while making it harder to elect down-ballot candidates.
State party leaders grumbled Tuesday at the Democratic National Committee’s meeting in Washington about a lack of detail on how exactly the new tax-exempt advocacy organization will work.
“It’s still a big question mark right now,” said Minnesota Democratic chairman Ken Martin. “We were told before the end of this campaign that all of that [the Obama campaign machinery] would fold into state parties. Now we’re being told something different, which is they’re going to set up this 501(c)(4).” [snip]
“I’m not a dummy,” he said. “I understand post-Citizens United the necessity to set up vehicles for different types of money to flow, but the reality is you can’t strip the party bare and expect in four years that we’re going to be able to pick up the pieces and get a Democrat elected president if you’ve completely stopped building capacity within the party.”
Contrary to his protestations, Martin is a dummy. Obama intends to keep control of the party and that means good bye Hillary. The answer is staring them right in the face but they refuse to see, or rather they refuse to admit to themselves, what Obama is up to:
“People are very concerned. They don’t know where it will lead,” said North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman David Parker. “The concerns vary. Nothing in particular, and everything in general. … There’s always a question of what does a successful reelection campaign do after the show is over. Is there another play to be involved with? Or what? And we’re in the ‘or what’ stage?”
“I would love to know,” he added. “It’s like the three wise men come to [King] Herod, and Herod says, ‘Well, this is really cool. After you find the baby Jesus, come back and tell me where he is so that I too may go worship,’” Parker added. “Now, was he acting in good faith or did he kill all the children in Bethlehem? I don’t know how the story ends.” [snip]
“Essentially, it’s an end run around the DNC and state parties,” said a third state chairman. “For the long-term health of our party, I don’t think it is the way to go. I don’t think fighting for donors is the way to do it. … We’ve won five of the last six popular votes in the general elections, so something’s working.
“The simple truth of the matter is that OFA 4.0, or whatever it is now, is not going to work to elect our local legislators,” the chairman added. “It’s not going to work to elect our local governors. It’s going to work to push the president’s agenda. I come from a state where the president’s not very popular. My elected Democrats are not always going to line up with him, and getting the activists all juiced up over it doesn’t help elect Democrats.” [snip]
Behind the scenes, though, the new incarnation of OFA will undoubtedly diminish the DNC’s relevance and overshadow Wasserman Schultz. Many insiders believe Obama’s decision to allow her to stay on as chairman for another term suggests a lack of interest in the party as much as a vote of confidence in her leadership.”
It’s all about Obama guys. It’s about Obama retaining a death grasp on the party. It’s all about keeping Hillary away from the nomination and the presidency.
Only now do we read about the past tensions and the present and future tensions that result from the Obama cult control:
“DNC members said they were caught off guard when the leaders of the president’s reelection team announced Obama for America was morphing into Organizing for Action (OFA), a nonprofit group that can take unlimited “soft money” donations.
The group will be spearheaded by former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina and advocate for Obama’s policies by mobilizing the millions-strong list of grassroots supporters built by the campaign.
While the new group will seek to go toe to toe with GOP outside groups like Crossroads GPS, some Democrats aren’t pleased that Obama didn’t fold his powerful grassroots operation back into the DNC. [snip]
“We’re not quite clear on what exactly OFA is going to be doing. We saw an email [announcement] just like everyone else saw an email the other day,” Kanoyton said. “I had no advance warning. [snip]
There has been some tension between the DNC and OFA in the past — even when OFA was technically operating as a part of the broader Democratic Party apparatus — with fights over sharing resources and prioritizing issues.
Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.), an outgoing DNC vice chairman, said he’d found out about the change to the Obama organization from young staffers of his who were on OFA’s mailing list.”
“The tech team behind the 2012 Obama campaign has probably received more attention than any political programmers in history. A so-called “dream team of engineers from Facebook, Google and Twitter [who] built the software that drove Barack Obama’s reelection” were extolled in the press for bringing Silicon Valley strategies like Agile development to the normally hidebound process of a political campaign. In the post mortems that followed Obama’s victory, many credited the superiority of the Democrats’ tech team and its famous Narwhal platform, in contrast to the failure of Mitt Romney’s digital efforts, with mobilizing the vote and winning crucial swing states.
But in the aftermath of the election, a stark divide has emerged between political operatives and the techies who worked side-by-side. At issue is the code created during the Obama for America (OFA) 2012 campaign: the digital architecture behind the campaign’s website, its system for collecting donations, its email operation, and its mobile app. When the campaign ended, these programmers wanted to put their work back into the coding community for other developers to study and improve upon. Politicians in the Democratic party felt otherwise, arguing that sharing the tech would give away a key advantage to the Republicans. Three months after the election, the data and software is still tightly controlled by the president and his campaign staff, with the fate of the code still largely undecided. It’s a choice the OFA developers warn could not only squander the digital advantage the Democrats now hold, but also severely impact their ability to recruit top tech talent in the future.
If the code OFA built was put on ice at the DNC until 2016, it would become effectively worthless. “None of that will be useful in four years, technology moves too fast,” said Ryan. [snip]
While the campaign and winning the election were fulfilling for these developers, Ryan isn’t planning a return to politics. The aftermath has jaded him. “I think it just reiterates the fact that change won’t come from Washington,” says Ryan. “If techies want change, we have to do it from the outside.“
It’s all about Obama guys. It’s a cult the cult leader intends to keep for himself. Barack Obama now has the apparatus to ignore the DNC. All Barack needs now is a candidate or a willing dupe.
There are rumors of a lantern jawed Michelle Obama throwing her garish self into the ring. We believe Martin O’Malley will be the crazed left candidate for the DailyKooks (after Montana’s clownish Brian Schweitzer is filtered out). Barack Obama is keeping his own clown close to the vest:
“Obama Is Boosting Biden’s 2016 Prospects
In case you haven’t noticed, President Obama and his vaunted PR machine are orchestrating a full-court press to boost the presidential stock of his loyal vice president, Joe Biden.
It is not clear whether Biden will seek the Oval Office next time — he will be 73 years old when 2016 rolls around. But just in case, the political foundation is carefully being laid and the public expectation is being buttressed by White House strategists, and dutifully documented by the media.
“Biden stokes talk of presidential campaign in 2016,” said a headline in Sunday’s Washington Examiner.
Since the Obama-Biden re-election in November, the loquacious vice president has been all over the place, doing everything from the ceremonial (attending the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia) to the monumental: leading a high-profile presidential task force on gun violence that will make recommendations to Obama on Tuesday.
Thanks to the president putting him in charge, rather than someone such as the FBI director or a prominent jurist, the work of the task force — a big deal since the Newtown, Conn., shootings last month — has given the vice president a lot of face time on television. He met last week, amid much media hoopla and commentary, with groups such as the NRA, video-game executives and representatives of the entertainment industry.
In addition to all that, Biden found time to negotiate an eleventh-hour “fiscal-cliff” compromise deal with Senate Republicans, visit devastated New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, lead the official U.S. delegation to the inauguration of Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto, and meet or phone a bevy of world leaders including Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, European Parliament President Martin Schulz, and Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.”
Swearing in new members of the U.S. Senate, shopping at Costco (co-founded owned by an Obama bundler), planned Sandy Hook publicity stunts with families of the dead, Ezra Klein incense lightings, Barack calling him his “extraordinary” vice president and providing him lots of assignments are some of the Barack-to-Biden love. It’s a dead fish message:
“Perhaps the president is sending a message to Hillary Clinton that he will not automatically back her if she decides to run in 2016. With Biden in the field, Obama has a ready excuse as to why he can’t endorse the early front-runner. To be sure, Clinton has been a loyal secretary of state. But Biden’s loyalty has been second to none, and Clinton was Obama’s strongest and bitterest rival for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
Moreover, her recent health problems might compromise her presidential prospects. Though younger than Biden, she still would be 69 shortly before Election Day 2016.”
It used to be that Hillary’s age would be the line of attack against her by the crazed left. Now it will not be her age, because she is younger than Biden, it will be her health. You know the health problems that many dolts derided as a fig leaf for cowardice.
But is Biden running? The Washington Post thinks so:
“One thing became abundantly clear during the past several days of inauguration festivities in Washington, D.C.: Joe Biden is running for president in 2016.
Ok, Biden isn’t technically in the race. (Technically, there isn’t a race yet either.) And, of course, minds can change between now and 2016. But, Biden is doing everything that someone who is planning to run would do. Everything. [snip]
* Biden — with Beau, a major rising star in both Delaware and nationally, in tow — not only stopped by the Iowa State Society’s inaugural ball on Saturday night but also delivered this gem of a line: “I am proud to be president of the United States, but I am prouder to be Barack — I mean, excuse me.” [snip]
* Biden invited New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan to attend his private swearing-in for a second term on Sunday at the vice presidential residence. [snip]
* Biden was in full Biden mode during the inaugural parade on Monday, working the crowd in a way that had “Vote for Me!” written all over it.”
Republican/conservative Hotair sees the Biden hot air as a 2016 prep too and quotes CNN’s report of private sit-downs with DNC delegates.
Politico thinks Biden is gunning for the top spot in 2016 too:
“Joe Biden ‘intoxicated’ by 2016 run
Joe Biden summoned more than 200 Democratic insiders to the vice presidential residence Sunday night to chat about the 2012 triumph — but many walked away convinced his rising 2016 ambitions were the real intent of the long, intimate night.
“I took a look at who was there,” said longtime New Hampshire state Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, “and said to myself, ‘There’s no question he’s thinking about the future.’ ”
“He’s intoxicated by the idea, and it’s impossible not to be intoxicated by the idea,” said a Democrat close to the White House. And the intoxication is hardly new. Officials working on the Obama-Biden campaign last year were struck by how the vice president always seemed to have one eye on a run, including aggressively courting the president’s donors. Obama aides at times had to actively steer Biden to places where he was needed — like Pennsylvania — because he kept asking to be deployed to Iowa, New Hampshire and other early states. [snip]
A Democrat close to both Biden and Clinton said it is extremely unlikely that they would challenge each other. “They’re both going to build up teams and see how it goes,” the Democrat said. “One of them will fade away, as it becomes more obvious which one of them should be the standard-bearer for the Obama legacy. I can’t see them both announcing for president. But both of them will have teams that try to get to that.”
It always will come down to Hillary and the will she won’t she question. Politico continues somewhat along the lines of what we see:
“Here’s a little intrigue that only Obama knows the answer to: Will the president really want a Clinton to replace him after spending eight years redirecting the party away from the centrism of Bill Clinton? After all, it was Clinton who declared the era of Big Government is over. And it was Obama, in his second inaugural speech, who declared it very much back on.
“Obama would rather be succeeded by a Biden type than a Clinton type,” a prominent Democrat told us. But the same Democrat went on to say that if Hillary Clinton were running, she would be running on the Obama legacy, not her husband’s.“
The crazed left will never trust that Hillary is “running on the Obama legacy.” The crazed left hates Hillary and won’t believe her on this issue once Obama puts out the word that his man is not a woman. We are in Borgia Italy and so we have to continue to watch as Hillary moves in the shadow world to determine what we will do in the general election. For the nomination we will strongly back Hillary Clinton if only to spite the Obama left.
Back to Politico and Biden:
“Biden’s most revealing move may have been to hold a little-discussed Sunday night party at the vice president’s mansion. He invited about 200 Democratic insiders over to his home and the guest list included some of the most influential figures in national and early-state Democratic politics.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Florida Sen. Bill Nelson, former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, NAACP head Ben Jealous, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy, Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory and Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon all were in attendance.
But what really raised eyebrows among the attendees were just how many Democrats from the traditional first nominating states made the trek to the Naval Observatory.
There were big names such as South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-ranking House Democrat and a Palmetto State powerhouse, but also lesser-known activists.”
Hillary hater and race-baiter Jim Clyburn will assist Barack Obama to make sure Hillary Clinton never gets the nomination in 2016.
Stu Rothenberg thinks Biden is gunning for the top job too:
“The 2016 Presidential Race Begins Today
After recent work on congressional deals, Biden looks like a more serious contender in 2016, if he chooses to run. [snip]
After Clinton and Biden, the list becomes more speculative. New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley are seen as ambitious and interested. Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer probably should be on the list as well.
Cuomo’s oratorical skills and access to New York state’s Democratic dollars can’t be ignored, and while O’Malley didn’t exactly set the world on fire at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, his state has put up good numbers on education and his very liberal views could be appealing to Democrats. Schweitzer has a folksy quality that many like, though I have felt for years that he tries way too hard.”
We believe Biden is merely a stop Hillary candidate and a place for Barack Obama to hang his hat. Eventually it will be Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland an Hopium guzzler extraordinaire who will become the darling of the crazed left. If O’Malley can gin up sufficient support then Barack will back him as the best stop Hillary candidate.
Already O’Malley has gun control laws prepared as the way to signal he wants the nomination:
“HUSTLING TO keep pace with New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D), Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) is preparing to lay out his own package of tough new gun laws in the aftermath of December’s bloodbath at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Many Republicans, in thrall to the gun lobby, have scoffed at both governors as intent more on burnishing their viability as presidential candidates in 2016 than on halting gun violence.”
It will be O’Malley or some other Hopium guzzling loon who will get the crazed left vote. For those that doubt the left will attack Hillary, just read Michael Kinsley’s early January article Hillary Clinton’s Ego Trips.
John Kraushaar has a smart article that notes the gun control issue won’t help O’Malley or Cuomo in 2016 while noting that it might help get attention at least:
“The bigger question is whether Cuomo and O’Malley merit the first-tier presidential stature they’ve been receiving lately. I’ve written about how thin the Democratic presidential bench looks for 2016, sans Hillary, with a bunch of secondary politicians looking to punch above their weight class. Desperate to build their national stature and fill a vacuum, they’re looking to grab at national issues to please the base ahead of a presidential run.“
O’Malley (after dispatching Schweitzer) will be the candidate of the loon left. Biden will be the placeholder for those wanting to stop Hillary from getting the nomination. Barack Obama will orchestrate the next nomination in the same way that Reid, Ted Kennedy and Pelosi orchestrated Obama’s gifted nomination.
But, but, but, Hillary will appear with Obama on Sunday, skeptics will retort. Well, Obama wants to get some of that Hillary luster near him to help his poll numbers and maybe borrow one of Hillary’s ovaries for the coming fights with congress and the courts.
For her part Hillary will try to co-opt Obama supporters with her appearance as she leaves government service for now. What??? You don’t like the idea of Hillary Clinton making moves out of political motivation? You used to like Hillary but you want the “truth” and a “principled stand” – for her to blast Obama in Congress and on TV – and because that prancing unicorn is not in your stocking you now hate Hillary? Maybe you’ll be happier with Michelle Obama as the next nominee of the party with a closet full of race baiting tricks to wear.
