Top Hillary Donors Meet With McCain Officials on the H.M.S. Bounty
The Patriot Room ^ | July 17, 2008 | Bill Dupray

At least that's what it'll look like to Obama.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Carly Fiorina, former Hewlett-Packard CEO and senior adviser to Sen. John McCain, met with a group of 25 prominent supporters and fundraisers for Sen. Hillary Clinton at a private home in Westchester County, NY. The group included several so-called "Hillraisers," each of whom have raised in excess of $100,000 for Clinton's failed primary campaign.

An organizer of the meeting, Amy Siskind, said that the pro-Hillary groups represented pledged to help deliver, "hundreds of thousands and maybe millions of votes," to McCain if the groups find areas of agreement between themselves and his campaign.

Uh-oh.

What do a bunch of Feminists want McCain to agree with them on?

Uh-oh.

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again

No, no!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss


Regards,
GtG

“The apex of victory is not to engage in combat, but rather to conquer without resorting to arms.” —Sun Tzu, The Art of War.

I just love Senator McCain. He’s been employing the lessons of Sun Tzu since starting his presidential campaign.

Hmmm, what does this mean...does Hillary want to be McCain’s VP, naaa. Does she want Obama to lose...? I’ll bet.

Lol, I know that. Can you imagine the four of them together?

Michelle can’t stand Hillary, Bubba could embarrass them and Hillary would try to run things. Might be fun to see.

I have a smoke ring gif I’ve been meaning to work with. Too many irons in the fire and my eyes are feeling bleary.

I’ve been predicting this for months. Look back at ‘04. The Clintons helped get GW re-elected against Kerry, with their eye on the ‘08 prize (GW could only serve another 4 years, after all).

Now that she knows there’s no prayer for VP pick, and unless there can be a huge scandal unearthed about BHO at the last minute (we only wish), Hill/Bill will be a big help for McCain (God knows he needs it) - they’re sure that he’d only be a one-term prez (vs. the BHO danger of 8 years), then they can come back in ‘12.

Strategery :-))))))))))

Well that stuff I said ‘naa’ to were things that crossed my mind.

And yes, as you say, she would like Obama to lose and try her comeback in 4 years.

Lol, they’ve made fun of how bad she may look in ‘four more years’!!

Sorry, but I disagree. This may work well in the Orient, but it doesn’t win election in the US for the most powerful office on earth - particularly not THIS year, against such a razor-sharp, slick & cunning opponent as BHO. I respect honor and integrity, but get increasingly frustrated daily about how far backward JSM and his people are bending over to be politically correct and “non-offensive” to the point of seeming paranoia. Sometimes I wonder whether he’s a cheerleader/defender for BHO and it’s sickening.

Quite true! If she ever heard the comments here and looked at all the pictures taken of her, she will do that, lol.

I think there may be still a few Democrats out there unwilling to risk the country to Obama. Just maybe...
