Hillary Is Already Running
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Ladies and gentlemen: The Next President of the United States -- Hillary Clinton!
Nope. I'm not joking. I'm deadly serious -- in earnest, even! In my opinion today, Hillary Clinton WILL be the next President of the United States.
Of Course, Hillary has to toss her hat into the ring, but -- that is only a formality.
I have looked at the GOP prospective candidates and, frankly, I don't
see a single one, at this point, I can support or for which I can
I am not going to compromise. So I will not
vote for a candidate I feel is not worthy, or does not live up to my
prospects for a candidate in order to save the country from the
socialists. That is being dishonest. "First, to thine own self be true!" (Polonius From Hamlet by Shakespeare)
The plain truth is -- it will take an act of God for the GOP to win the Presidency in 2016.
OUCH! I know! It hurts, doesn't it!? Of course, that's just MY opinion.
Meanwhile, a “Ready for Hillary” political action committee has formed up.
a shadow campaign set up at least two years before Clinton will
actually decide whether or not to run for president,” reports Slate’s
David Wegel. “It’ll raise money, sell merchandise, and build lists until
the actual Clinton campaign bursts to life. And then it will change its
name to ‘Ready PAC,’ raise money, sell merchandise, and build lists,
Recent polls, too, have indicated Clinton has never seen a better time to seek the presidency.
to a Washington Post / ABC NEWS poll from late January, more than 67%
of Americans hold a favorable view of Clinton -- her highest approval
ratings since pollsters began tracking her popularity.
this week also received the endorsement of Democratic strategist James
Carville, who pledged his support to the Super PAC that is trying to woo
Clinton to run." SOURCE: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/clinton-2016-political-pundits-hillary-presidential-run-article-1.1310037#ixzz2Pp9rSzEb
There is method to Hillary's coyness at this date.
Jason Linkins at the Huffington Post said this recently: "See,
as long as Clinton says nothing definitive about whether she's running,
she effectively "freezes the field." Other Democratic contenders can't
start contending. Republican rivals who lack real game have to keep
their mouths shut as well. We're not drowning in stories, speculating
about when Andrew Cuomo is going to visit Des Moines (though I'm sure
Des Moines can't wait), and no one is getting tumescent over the tricksy
consultants Martin O'Malley is hiring." SOURCE: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/06/hillary-clinton-2016-speculation_n_3024678.html?utm_hp_ref=politics
I think she will run? Yes I do… Has there ever been a male candidate
who was the odds-on favorite to be president and backed away? No, and so
why should she be any different?” said Professor Chris Arterton, dean
of the Graduate School of Political Management at George Washington
University, in an interview with RIA Novosti.
nature of a Hillary presidency is kind of a completion of the
transformation that began with Obama, the first African-American
president, the first woman president, and a lot of people in this
country are eager for that to happen,” he added. SOURCE: http://www.eurasiareview.com/10042013-will-hillary-clinton-run-for-president-in-2016-analysis/
Pay careful attention to the first sentence of the paragraph immediately above: “The historic nature of a Hillary presidency is kind of a completion of the transformation that began with Obama ... "
Now. Are you sufficiently frightened? You ought to be. We All should be!
Hill newspaper ran a poll recently and found that 51 percent think
Hillary is all ready running. According to the poll results 41 percent
believe that she will be the Democratic Party candidate in 2016. I
Some believe that if Hillary announces
early no other democrat will challenge her for the nomination. That
would leave the democrats sitting pretty -- without a primary fight
-- while waiting for the republican candidates to eviscerate each
other, and their treasury, in a nasty primary campaign. Then she mops
the floor with the GOP candidate left standing.
While many in the GOP feel they have enough dirt on Hillary to make the difference in a presidential campaign, I don't believe it.
The last two presidential elections have proven the moral fiber of
America has not just worn thin, it is practically transparent. A
country that would elect the current occupant of the White House doesn't
give a damn about morals, or character, or honor, or even if the
candidate is legally qualified, or anything else. All they care about
is the government dole, the redistribution of the nation's former wealth
to their pockets. They know that Hillary will keep it flowing. The leftist power elite care about one thing -- POWER.
They know that with a Hillary presidency they can control the reins of
power in the US for as long as she occupies the Oval Office.
of this moment, I am one hundred percent sure that Hillary Clinton will
be the next President of the United States -- provided, of course, she
really wants it. There IS that off chance that she really might NOT want it, but that does not fit the character of the Hillary we all know.
I shudder at the thought of having the Clintons back in the White
House. But I have long since accepted that America has changed -- and changed for the worse. This
NEW America is not new, it is just a remake of the old empires of
ancient history that rose to the apex of power in the known world then
fell victim to their own moral decay and crumbled and fell into the
dustbin of history leaving hardly a mark on the time continuum of earth.
Americans are, after all, no better than all the rest that went before
us. Doomed by our avarice, our low moral character, our selfishness, and our surprising ignorance.
latter generations of Americans have squandered everything the former
generations worked, fought, bled, and died to insure for us. Instead of
a national motto that reads: "In God we trust" maybe a better motto
for us would have been: "Eat, drink, and make merry, for tomorrow we die."
Depressing? Yeah, it is.
