is more popular than Hillary Clinton. But that doesn't prevent the media from running headlines that claim:
Hillary Clinton Rise as Most Popular Politician Prompting Buyers RemorseAnd the "buyer's remorse" has nothing whatsoever to do with Herself, and everything to do with the band of low-class thugs that make up the Obama administration.
The most popular national political figure in America today is one who was rejected by her own party three years ago: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Here' comes Hillary 2.0.
Sarah Palin's Goldfish...is more popular than Hillary Clinton...
Ask Bill Clinton about buyer’s remorse.
Hillary Clinton is part of this administration.
She will be destroyed by simply being associated with these amateurs.
A series of hard-Left mentors introduced Hillary to the brass-knuckle realities of revolutionary activism. As a Wellesley undergraduate, she met and interviewed radical organizer Saul Alinsky, whose Machiavellian tactics she admired. Hillary's senior thesis supported Alinsky's call for class warfare. (4)
At Yale, Hillary found a new Svengali in the form of left-wing law professor Thomas Emerson, known around campus as "Tommy the Commie." Emerson recruited Hillary and other students to help monitor the trial of the New Haven Nine for civil rights violations. Hillary took charge of the operation, scheduling the students in shifts, so that student monitors would always be present in the courtroom. She befriended and worked closely with Panther lawyer Charles Garry. (5)
Some believe that the enormous pressure exerted by the Left helped ensure light sentences for the New Haven Nine. Whether or not this is true, the punishments were mild.
"Only one of the killers was still in prison in 1977," reports John McCaslin in the Washington Times. "The gunman, Warren Kimbro, got a Harvard scholarship and became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College. Ericka Huggins, who boiled the water for Mr. Rackley's torture, got elected to a California school board." (6)
Hillary's defenders argue that she played no "significant" role in the New Haven Nine's defense. This is semantic hairsplitting. Obviously, Hillary was less "significant" than Charles Garry or "Tommy the Commie" Emerson. But Hillary served as a trusted lieutenant to these movers and shakers. Moreover, she had a national profile as a campus activist. Hillary was no rank-and-file student protester, as her apologists claim.
Indeed, Hillary's work for the Panthers won her a summer internship at the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Treuhaft in 1972. A hardline Stalinist, Treuhaft had quit the Communist Party in 1958 only because it was losing members and no longer provided a good platform for his activism. (7) "Treuhaft is a man who dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and the KGB," notes historian Stephen Schwartz. (8)
The defense of the New Haven Nine marked Hillary's initiation into the sinister underworld of the hard-core, revolutionary Left. To my knowledge, Hillary has never publicly renounced nor apologized for her role in that movement.
Now how's THIS for a laugher? ...
RE: Clinton-Obama presidential debate
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: And, Senator [OBAMA], if you get the nomination, you'll have to beat back these distractions.
And I want to give Senator Clinton a chance to respond, but first a follow-up on this issue, general theme of patriotism, in your relationships. A gentleman named William Ayers. He was part of the Weather Underground in the 1970s. They bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol, and other buildings. He's never apologized for that.
And, in fact, on 9/11, he was quoted in the New York Times saying, "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." An early organizing meeting for your State Senate campaign was held at his house and your campaign has said you are "friendly."
Can you explain that relationship for the voters and explain to Democrats why it won't be a problem?
OBAMA: George, but this is an example of what I'm talking about. This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who's a professor of English in Chicago who I know and who I have not received some official endorsement from. He's not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.
And the notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8 years old, somehow reflects on me and my values doesn't make much sense, George.
The fact is that I'm also friendly with Tom Coburn, one of the most conservative Republicans in the United States Senate, who, during his campaign, once said that it might be appropriate to apply the death penalty to those who carried out abortions.
Do I need to apologize for Mr. Coburn's statements? Because I certainly don't agree with those, either.
So this kind of game in which anybody who I know, regardless of how flimsy the relationship is, that somehow their ideas could be attributed to me, I think the American people are smarter than that. They're not going to suggest somehow that that is reflective of my views, because it obviously isn't.
CLINTON: Well, I think that is a fair general statement, but I also believe that Senator Obama served on a board with Mr. Ayers for a period of time, the Woods Foundation, which was a paid directorship position.
And, if I'm not mistaken, that relationship with Mr. Ayers on this board continued after 9/11 and after his reported comments, which were deeply hurtful to people in New York and, I would hope, to every American, because they were published on 9/11, and he said that he was just sorry they hadn't done more.
And what they did was set bombs. And in some instances, people died. So it is -- I think it is, again, an issue that people will be asking about.
And I have no doubt -- I know Senator Obama's a good man and I respect him greatly, but I think that this is an issue that certainly the Republicans will be raising.
Or Monica Lewinsky.
Probably mixing metaphors there, though.
anybody with a “Clinton” or a “Bush” as part of their name has more to do with the current problems in the USA rather than the solutions.
In fact...that can be said about most anybody in the public eye currently that lists a (D) OR an (R) after their name
Does anyone have a recent picture of Hill? Last one I saw was pretty horrifying and I was wondering if there was any improvement or not...
Blacks will sit that election out.
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo [the police].
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

Article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROS (May 11, 1969):
Blowers remorse is more apropos.
Put down crack pipe. It's no cure for Bush Derangement Syndrome.
She’s 63, but imho she looks much older.
Only because many of the Dems have ‘voter’s remorse’ for buying the hype about Obama.
They wish they had a ‘do-over’ knowing know what they didn’t know then.
Unemployment, for a short work week ending Sept 10, was 428,000. That was up significantly from the previous full work week. Nevada’s UE has jumped nearly a half percent since last month.
Barring any signficant improvement in the economy or joblessness in the coming months, look for the Dem leadership to pressure Obama to decline running in 2012. They will feign illness or ‘family concerns’ or some such. But the Dems, knowing they will probably lose the Senate, will probably look for a replacement and try to retain the White House. Right now, Hillary would seem to most likely with name recognition and experience.
Wow. Looks like th4e Soviet Socialist American Press is bailing on OTrauma.
She's becoming jabba the hut.
Hillary Clinton is another student of Saul Alinsky and believes in The Third Way....a Communist approach to ‘Democracy’. She is as slippery as her husband....nothing has changed, she is the same old Hillary, a little heavier, a little more dowdy, and like those of her generation, a bit older. Oh yes, she is part of the Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorn generation of American terrorists ....just more gibberish to sell news papers.
Yes, and her skin is dry and crepey. It just hangs off of her face. If I had to guess, I’d say that her diet is probably lacking in fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as good oils.
The name's not really ringing any bells...
Oh, wait! Didn't she serve as Secretary of State under some REALLY bad president back in the early part of the 21st century? She might even have been a U.S. senator for a very brief time?”...
