Van Jones: GOP Will Have to Run Against Hillary, Bill, Barack, and Michelle in 2016
The National Review's The Corner ^ | January 26, 2014 | Andrew Johnson

Posted on 01/26/2014 2:58:47 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The merger of Team Obama and Team Clinton could prove too much to handle for Republicans in 2016, warns Van Jones. “Whoever gets your nomination will have to run against four of us: Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, [President] Obama, and Michelle Obama,” he said on This Week.

Fellow panelists Cokie Roberts and Greta Van Susteren both expressed uncertainty whether Clinton would ultimately run, and Matt Bai of Yahoo! News said “she cannot clear the field.” “Everything we know about modern politics and the modern presidential process flies in the face of that — we don’t live in that world anymore,” Bai said....

And that “team” of three Alpha Males/Bull Dykes and the uber-narcissistic Barack Obama will be able to coalesce into a single force supporting one of their members (who has been wronged by the other three multiple times)?

I’m not saying that they can’t, but it will be interesting to watch who get thrown under the bus and how.

So FOX now allows Greta to appear on other news commentary shows as a member of the panel? Well now. Maybe Greta is putting her feelers out for ‘Life After Fox’. Probably a good idea, nothing is guaranteed in television, where glamour and notoriety still rule.

Well, the Zeros and Krintoons will have to run away from Hillarycare! and Zerocare.

Hard to shore up the base when the base can’t afford the gas to go vote since you tripled their premiums and quadrupled their deductibles.

Embrace your suck, RATS!

It’s always an up hill struggle anyway, against NYT , Washington Post, NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, David Gregory, Bob Schieffer, George Stephanopoulous, etc, etc.

Most of their base is now on Medicaid or getting subsidies. They are not paying for it, we are. They will have plenty of money left to buy gas to go vote. Don’t kid yourself.

I seriously think Mrs. Obama stayed in Hawaii with Oprah Winfrey, Valerie Jarrett and others to plan her campaign, and I am serious.

Hey, Anthony Kapel Jones....

You may want to include Curly, Moe and Larry into that mix.

Also, you may want to start checking out countries that do not have an extradition treaty with the United States before too much longer.

No, the GOP will have to run only against the results of liberal governance. Hillary is the one who will have to run against Barack and Michelle, and what they stood for.

She’ll have to run against Obamacare, and the crippled economy. It is she that will have to come toward the right, if only slightly, in both domestic fiscal issues and foreign policy. It will be Hillary who will be between the rock and the hard place, not the GOP. Because the people will decide, not liberal pundits.

We have to stop listening to the media meme as to what we have to do.

Hillary won’t be able to get 140% of the black vote on her own.

That, and the feminazis have painted themselves into a corner that will require Hillary to have a female running mate.

An aging angry white woman plus an angry racist black woman will be a tough ticket to sell

I see Hill’s VP as a DeVal Patrick/Cory Booker type with the implicit message to black voters that “wink wink” Hillary’s health ain’t that great.

Not to worry...their votes will show up in the totals whether they show up or not.....Voter fraud is the elephant in rooms of the inner cities that nobody dares to address

“tough ticket to sell”

Of course you are right...looking at things from our side.

But put on a different pair of glasses. I think the left would be orgasmic over such a pairing. PLUS...they could have Bill and Barry still in government.

Canckles, Slick Willie, B.O., and The Mooch combined are less formidable to run against that the Democrat Vote Fraud Machine.
