Wall Street Journal ^ | June 23, 2014 | Dorothy Rabinowitz

That would come as a change, after what will by then have been eight years of a different ruling focus in the White House—that being, of course, the president's race. Years in which Obama administration staff members, congressional allies and advocates in the political culture regularly nurtured the view—when they weren't making outright accusations—that vociferous opposition to this president, and his policies, was largely fueled by white racism. Jay Rockefeller (D., W.Va.) just last month declared that opposition to ObamaCare came from people who don't like the president "because maybe he's the wrong color."

After 8 years of The Tranny Twins Fabulosity Tour in the whitehouse, is america ready for the witch with a hate-on against all males?
Hopefully they unanimously respond “aww hail no!” to a shrillery candidacy.
Same to a mooch candidacy.

Nixon? Quayle? Bush? Ford?

Maybe there were other reasons why they were attacked (there usually are), but people who opposed them definitely made reference to their looks.

But there are people out there who think nobody has ever disagreed with or disliked a White president.

Maybe not but then the possibility arises with a relatively unknown, by comparison, Dizzie Miss Lizzie who is more liberal than Clinton. Be prepared for the Holier-than-Thou Victim Tour 2016 from someone with a perpetual look of constipation.
