God help us if this scary woman (and her husband) returns to the White House
The Daily Mail ^ | 10th November 2006 | Ann Leslie

Posted on 11/10/2006 2:07:47 AM PST by Mrs Ivan

The total rout of George Bush's Republicans was completed yesterday when the last Senate vote to be counted in America's midterm elections gave victory to the Democrats in Virginia.

The result gave the Democrats an effective 51-49 majority to add to a landslide win in the House of Representatives and presented Bush with the prospect of being a lame-duck President for his final two years in power.

After years of ignoring his political opponents, it was a time for fence-mending yesterday as the President invited Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi to a White House lunch to discuss how they might work together and, crucially, solve the crisis in Iraq.

With the 66-year-old mother-of-five now holding power on Capitol Hill, Mrs Pelosi met a once antagonistic President whom she has variously described as 'dangerous', 'in denial' and 'an emperor with no clothes'.

The humbled President admitted he was 'open to any idea' which might help him end the unpopular war. After the lunch, he congratulated Mrs Pelosi on becoming America's first female House Speaker.

For her part, she said she was looking forward to a series of 'confidence-building' meetings with Bush, adding: 'We are extending the hand of friendship.' But as the Mail reports here, another woman holds the real key to America's future...

An old anti-Clinton joke is doing the rounds again: 'If Clinton were the Titanic, it would have been the iceberg which sank.' Only this time it's being applied to his wife.

As someone who's been on the campaign trial with them both over the years, I've been constantly amazed at the utter unsinkability of the Clintons.

I would often wonder just how many more financial scandals the pair could survive — White-watergate, Futuresgate, Chickengate, Travelgate, Filegate — which always involved her. And sexual scandals, such as the Monica Lewinsky affair, which always involved him.

By the time he relinquished his presidency, Bill had been impeached, and then compounded his sins by granting presidential pardons to assorted criminal cronies.

The day he left office, I wrote: 'It seems almost unbelievable that the greatest political soap opera of the century is over — as its star, Big Bubba Bill, waddles off the political stage, grinning, biting his lip, twinkling his seductive smile, allowing a sentimental tear to fall from his eyes, knowing full well that he's still a winner.

'If the Constitution allowed it, the majority of Americans say they would vote for him again.'

Well, the soap opera ain't over yet. Hillary Clinton has just won a landslide in the mid-term elections and kept her Senate seat. The band played 'You ain't seen nothin' yet!' and Bill was celebrating alongside his fierce, ecstatic, yellow-suited wife.

Everyone knows she'll be running for President in 2008. As Dick Morris, Bill's former campaign adviser and now an implacable foe of the couple, put it: 'The order of succession to the presidency in this poor benighted country may well be Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton.'

She's already jokingly told friends that Bill, who used to refer to himself as 'The Comeback Kid', will be called 'The First Mate'.

The thought of the Clinton duo back in the White House fills many with utter gloom. 'Hillary's smile could curdle embalming fluid.' 'If elephants can do without ankles, why not Hillary?' 'Don't let the Wicked Witch back into the White House!'

SHE always intended to become President — only her gender stood in the way. So she married a good ole Suth'n boy, oozing with charm, whom she met at law school. No one could see what he saw in her. 'Hell, she was ugly — and frankly, looked dirty,' said a fellow law student. 'And not dirty in a sexy way — just dirty!'

A Left-wing feminist, Hillary had greasy, unkempt hair, bottle-lensed glasses and wore charity-shop clothes. But they both recognised in each other a fierce political ambition which would eventually propel them into power.

Bill had grown up with a poor, dysfunctional family, but as an eight-year-old, he told his primary school teacher that if he'd been in charge of the Roman Empire, it would never have fallen. And that he was going to become, first, Governor of Arkansas, and then President.

And Hillary always intended that his presidency would be a joint one: 'Buy one, get one free!'

When her husband first ran for the presidency, she told her close friend Linda Bloodworth-Thomason that the couple's dream was 'Eight years of Bill, eight years of Hill!'

According to Dick Morris, Bill has always been frightened of Hillary and many of his 'scrapes' were compounded by terror of his wife's fury.

Her former business partner, Susan MacDougal, who ended up in jail (and was pardoned by Bill), said: 'Hillary is one of the most focused, most driven, most goal-oriented women I have ever met. I mean, she is a scary woman!'

One of their former advisers told me: 'Bill's always had the character of tapioca, no real ideology, nothing but a general neediness to be loved and huge amounts of charisma. He was always indecisive and undisciplined, but she never was. She's not needy, she's highly ideological, highly liberal, highly focused, and she's always provided the backbone for him.'

I interviewed members of her White House staff who, off the record, spoke of the pair's volcanic rages (and her often foul mouth).

'No one is scared of him, but everyone's scared of her. He has a terrible temper, screams and shouts, and there are bodies all over the floor — but then the sun comes out, and the storm is over.

'She has a much slower fuse, but she's much more dangerous: she's very cold, very scathing, and doesn't forget, so you don't know when she'll get the knives out for you. In that way, she's much more difficult to deal with.'

Ruthlessly unsentimental, it was Hillary who, when reading a speech before delivery, would crisply inform Bill: 'We don't want to throw around words like "love".'

Hillary disliked the mawkishness, the touchy-feely empathising that he's always revelled in.

I was told by Carl Sforazza Anthony, an historian who likes her and admires her unswerving self-belief: 'Her attitude always is, never mind the torpedoes — full steam ahead!'

The woman we saw on television after this week's Senate win bears no resemblance to the 'ugly' woman law student Bill married. She once cared so little about clothes that she forgot to get a wedding dress and her mother had to rush round to a department store to buy one for her.

Hillary is now coiffed, heavily-Botoxed, well-dressed, and looks far younger than she is. But as Camille Paglia, author of Sex, Art And American Culture, points out: 'There is a bleached, sanitised, de-sexed, de-sensualised quality to Hillary's persona.'

There's little doubt that she will win the Democratic nomination for President. She has a massive war chest, a good reputation for hard work in the Senate, and has campaigned for other Democrats in their elections. They now owe her favours. But will she become the first woman President?

She was, at one time, the most hated — and divisive — woman in America. But she's learnt from her mistakes, and in her 'highly focused' way has moved firmly towards the centre; in New York state, she even won in deeply Republican wards.

The woman who began her joint-presidential career despising the military (soldiers who went to the White House complained that she 'treated us like dirt on her shoe') now praises them fulsomely, and she voted for war in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

She stresses her devotion to God (no godless candidate could ever hope to win office in America) and her deep patriotism. And, so far, it seems to be working.

And what of Bill? After all, he once told Dick Morris that he wanted to divorce her. Many times she would have been forgiven for wanting to divorce him. But she never had any intention of letting Bill get away from her: she'd invested too much in his career. And it's said that she still, despite everything, loves him deeply.

Yet they are rarely seen together in public and lead virtually separate lives. Bill's life involves earning huge amounts of money on lecture tours, travelling the world for pet causes and — unfortunately — yet more Good Ole Suth'n boy philandering. She once ruefully said of him: 'It's hard to keep this dog on the porch!'

She knows that he comes with baggage and, once she declares that she's running for President, all the old scandals will be dredged up again (and possibly new ones still to come). Just as she has distanced herself from the Left, so she has also distanced herself from her husband and his chronic misbehaviour.

Only when — and if (it's a big if) — she becomes President will we know whether this is the restoration of the 'Billary' presidency.

'Buy one again, and you get one free... again.'

In all honesty, what's to stop her? The Republicans didn't do what they needed to which was to promote nation-wide efforts for states to implement thorough anti-voter fraud measures. The machine is obviously still intact. Who knows how much fraud occurred on Tuesday? It will be a cake walk for her to defraud the next election because the people who represented us failed to do their job and became fat, lazy and corrupt. And now we have even worse.

People just don't learn from history. I can't imagine why they prefer first hand experience with tragedy.

Never happen. There are a lot of people who hate mention of anything Clinton and a lot more who would never vote for a woman president. We could parade David Duke in front of this woman and still win the presidency. I hope to god she runs and wins the primary. Funny I have a friend who never votes (don't ask why) but he said tonight he would register to vote just to vote against Hillary and then retire from voting again.

Well at least I feel better knowing what the future holds.
Clinton-Bush-Clinton-Bush will happen. Nothing
we can do about it now. She will get 24/7 coverage now.
It will be fun to watch Kerry and Gore get tossed though.
I think we knew that we beat Kerry, we were electing Hillary.

You know, I really hate to talk like this, but when Bush got elected, I figured at best we'd have 8 decent years ahead of us to roll back the socialist agenda. It was mostly for the benefit of my children that I was concerned. Then I figured the white witch would assume power by hook or crook (it will be both) at which point a relentless death march for the new socialist order will pick up full speed. Seems we'll have an early preview with the last election's results apparent now.

Well, I'm not willing to accept this so readily now. We have two years to prepare for the white witch. I plan to do everything an American can do within the system to deny her the next election.

To bad I don't truly believe there are any Republicans in a position of power who plan to help. Then again, after watching their performance the last few years I'm not entirely convinced they were there to help to begin with.

I hate being cynical. If I don't snap out of this soon, I'll take a break for a while and come back with a better attitude.

If Americans vote for Hillary, they get Bill again. Vote for one, get two for free. Somehow, we'll see another Clinton presidency follow Bush. First father, then Bill, then the son and now Hillary. Don't count her out; the same people who said she can't be elected President were whippersnapped by the Democratic takeover of Congress on Tuesday.

They'll win it for Hillary. They'll protect her and make over into St. Joan Of Arc. You'll LOVE her so much you want her to run the country. Of course she's a terribly flawed politician and even less likeable as a human being but what you don't know from the Drive Bys/MSM can't hurt you. They'll worship the ground she walks upon.

Indeed. My point is Republicans should not expect the media to bring down Hillary. They will NEVER do to a Democrat what they routinely do as a matter of course to a Republican. Yeah, I know its a double standard. Who said life was fair? Republicans will have to get the truth out to the American people by themselves.

What You SAID!

Who is this dope? Seriously.

Yeah, this is not my favorite election of all time, but compared to the 6th year elections of every president since FDR, we did VERY well indeed. And when you consider the number of close elections. the picture is even better.

Let's not over-react ("rout" - my generously proportioned behind!), especially since this is largely a war of perceptions.But while that's happening, we need to explain to our alleged leaders that they forgot what made 1994 what it was, they need to grow a pair, and start remembering the "Servant" part of public servant.

I'm going to push Santorum for '08. A man of principle, integrity, and vision.

The Democrats intend to emasculate Bush and discredit him before they move in for the kill by impeaching him. They have a score to settle and they calculate from the vote Tuesday they face little risk in bringing down a President they think the country hates as much as they do.

If she wins, just think of her as another curse on America for abandoning our Christian heritage. America has been greatly blessed, but now is openly mocking God, and many are acting like all this was their doing, not His. That is dangerous territory. If we continue on this course, when it hits, its going to be just as shocking as 9/11, only much worse. And for many it will be too late. As the song goes "wake up Christians, and stop playing church, to enter God's Kingdom there must be a new birth."

Luke 12:48
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

how the MSM won the election for the Dems.

Even fox does not distinguish between "Stem cell" and "Embryonic Stem Cell". The murder is confined to the second phrasing, while no cures have yet been found there. You'd think even the newsies would get that the distinction is important ...

The MSM is the enemy, fer shur. They've said so. They hold their mission as higher than protecting American soldiers. They publish secrets critical to the war effort. Like all liars, they have lost the ability or the desire to tell the truth. Yet they still buy ink by the barrel. Our mission is clear.

Probably true.

The thing is, I remember Contract with America. I remember Newt and the time when Republicans actually had a philosophy of what should be going on in this country.

And now, Congress wastes it's time on meaningless border security stuff when really important things like steroid use by baseball players doesn't get anywhere near what it deserves.

You are correct. I've seen politicians and pundits on both sides of the isle use the term "Stem Cells" instead of "Embryonic Stem Cells" and talk about it being banned when it's only Federal Funding being dropped! Funding no other President, except GWB, provided in all the 20 years of research!

I feel exactly the same way. Even taking into account the MSM, had the GOP acted in ways that we expected them to act, we would not have had Tuesday's slaughter. Conservatives have veen concerned for years with the Republicans inability to defend themselves and put forward conservative points of view. It has been a catastrophic failure and blame has to be placed squarely on GOP leadership, every d--- one of them, Congressional and administrative. And I really do mean EVERYONE in the GOP leadership.

I really believe that Hillary has a good chance to win in 2008, especially with the help of the MSM. They will spend the next two years fighting this administration on every issue.

The real question is what are we going to do about it. Expose Dem corruption and lies on the blogs? Get the Rep politicians off their asses and fight back against the demo propaganda machine? Start looking for a real canditae for POTUS versus the bunch of has beens and losers we have been tossing around for the last two years. We jeered and talked crap for the last two years about how inept the dems were and we see what has happened. We need to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and fight back. Oh yeah, we need to stop all this pansey nice guy "we are better than them" and get down right nasty about this next fight-

Will someone please point me to the chapter in the Civics textbook that describes how the Committees are organized when the actual count of Senators is tied; 49-D, 49-R, 2-I? Why should the DemoKratz get control if this is the actual split?

"The humbled President admitted he was 'open to any idea' which might help him end the unpopular war. After the lunch, he congratulated Mrs Pelosi on becoming America's first female House Speaker."

After reading this, I felt like I was going to hurl. I wrote this to a friend Wednesday after being reminded of Pelosi's new "role"...I meant it then and mean it now:

Lotsa people I dont like in politics, but she is at the top of my list. How the f*** a vile, loathesome creature like her, was ever even allowed to leave the kitchen, never mind become an elected official, blows my mind. She is a horrible excuse for a human being and deserves to swing from the gallows alongside Saddam.

*That was the edited version.

I have said it before, and I'll say it again: Democrats love her, but they love their political money more. And to nominate this woman is to ENSURE that a great big big bonfire of green cash, Democrat political green cash, will be burnt right up.

No, she'll do fine in some primaries, at the most optimistic, but the reality is that someone, likely a big moneyed nameless democrat, is going to put a missle in this chick's wing. The reality is quite plain: all you have to do is watch CSPAN when she really starts to seriously campaign. She sounds horrible, she screeches, and she is utterly hated by so many men ... well....the fact is she is unelectable. Period.

And no amount of feel good liberalism is going to drive the central core of real democrat money into a pyre, just so that on NOv 8, they can get together over cheese and wine and slap eachother on the back about how they nominated the 'right woman'....
