Skip to comments.DeLay: 'Hillary Will Be the Next President'
Posted on 12/12/2006 1:03:56 PM PST by Quilla
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said today that Sen. Hillary Clinton (D.-N.Y.) would be elected president in 2008 and would probably tap Senate colleague Barack Obama (D.-Ill.) as her running mate.
DeLay met with conservative bloggers at a weekly lunch meeting hosted by HUMAN EVENTS and the Heritage Foundation. He is making the rounds in Washington to promote his new blog and activism website, TomDeLay.com.
DeLay said he was motivated to start the blog and create the Grassroots Action and Information Network after observing the success of liberal organizations such as MoveOn.org, the Media Fund and Americans Coming Together. He said he hopes to utilize some of the same tools to help Republicans win elections.
Its this liberal coalition, working in concert with the news media, that will propel Clinton to the White House in 2008, DeLay said. Hillary will be the next president of the United States because they have built a coalition, he said.
DeLay also implored conservatives to start digging into Obamas past. He said Obamas record in the Illinois Senate was on par with a Marxist leftist. Citing defeated U.S. Senate candidate Harold Ford of Tennessee, DeLay said Obama was attempting to disguise his liberal views. (Read Amanda Carpenters report on Obama and his conflicting rhetoric.)
DeLay named Clinton loyalists Harold Ickes, Sidney Blumenthal, James Carville, Paul Begala and Joe Lockhart as the masterminds behind the left-wing coalition. He said that these groups, more than anything else, contributed to the GOPs fall this November. I have never seen a more powerful coalition, he said.
One such example of the coalitions power played out precisely as planned in Californias 11th District. Republican Rep. Richard Pombo was toppled after facing an onslaught of attacks from the left.
DeLay said his goal in creating the new organization is to turn ideas into action. He said he will reach out to the diverse coalition of conservative groups and bring them together to rival the coalition built by liberals. Prior to the 1994 Republican takeover of Congress, DeLay said he employed a similar strategy that the GOP has gradually abandoned.
One day after launching the new website, DeLay said hes had 100 people pay the $52 per year to join the Grassroots Action and Information Network.
Did he predict whether he would be in prison during her term?
I think Delay has been huffing the insecticide again...
*****Loony Left Projecting Ping*****
Love your optimism, Congressman.
Bad news but likely. Also, the explanation cannot be easily refuted. Their problem will not be getting elected but governing.
If she is, I may have to take early retirement and move to my retirement home in the Philippines for 8 years............. or more.
He also said Republicans would hold on to the house and senate.
Jeeze Remind us never to put him as a speaker at the Republican Convention! It will be the Republican Depression instead!
No she won't.In fact,after having studied the lives and careers of Huey Long and RFK she'll decide not to run.
Yeah, thanks for the pick me up, Tom.
The gun's at my head now, should I pull the trigger, or do you want to finish me off?
(no worries...I'm not actually suicidal)
Shall I purchase my home in Banff, Alberta now?
"working in concert with the news media"
Hell, she doesnt even need to pay for advertisement when the "news" is willing to do it for FREE!
(1) Delay doesn't know what he's talking about.
(2) The American people, by electing Shrillary in 2008, will get the socialist utopia they would richly deserve.
I haven't liked all this buzz about Hillary ever since it started. I thought the less ever said about her the better. All this continual talk about her has just about got her elected without having to run.
That being said....I'm afraid it's going to work...all too well. What a horrifying thought.
Well, you notice the acronym for his project is GAIN. :)
whose the first chairman - Will Gotton?
"Reverse psychology" might put some fire in the belly, but don't give the enemy quotes ammo, Tom!
Disagree. I think her ego and lust for power are too strong. In this respect this makes her more of a man than Teddy Kennedy, who chickened out of future presidential races after due reflection on what happened to his older brothers.
Do you need any roomies? Lake Louise is my favorite place in the entire world.
Is it any wonder the GOP got beat in '06.
Our leaders are following the Dems.
Say "Hello" to Art Bell for me, while you're there........
Ted Kennedy ran for President in 1980. He lost to Carter! Seems like he was thinking of another run in '84.
It beats killing bugs for a living, I suppose.
The Rodham-Hussein ticket.
It just might work -- unless during the campaign we can force her to answer substantive questions and engage in a debate -- activities she's so far successfully sheltered herself from.
Hey Tom, do you possess French blood?
Last Senator to win the White House was Kennedy in 1960. And that took some doing in Illinois!
Just slink away Tom. You have done great damage to the Party.
Tom...Tom...Tom....I am embarrassed that I worked on your initial campaign to get you into office even more now. YOU are part of the problem since you wimped out and let another seat fall to the democrats IMHO. You are and have never been close too what the conservatives aspired we'd get done with a Republican congress. Just part of the problem and now we are rid of you!! Newt's my hero.
Although Hillary! could very well be the dem's candidate for 2008, I highly doubt she will reach the WH again. Could just be denial on my part, but I do not think Americans are ready to vote for a woman (if that is indeed what Hillary! is) president.
I didn't say he never ran. I meant that he became so fat, happy and secure in the Senate, he figured why take the physical risk to myself by running for President in the future.

Sounds like someone is trying to raise campaign funds.
He's right you know. based on where we are in the world right here, it's smart politics too! Sorry fellow white guys but it's time for a black man to hold up the beacon of hope and the miracle that is America to the rest of the indigenous (read non-white) people of the world. He's more valuable than 50 trillion dollars worth of Karen Hughes PR. His daddy repudiated Islam ove in Kenya in favor of the love of Jesus Christ. And she was settled on last year by leaders from both parties IMHO. Bill Clinton and Obama are going to try and save us from a fiery death at the hands of brown people. Sorry but my tagline demands I..
The corrupt Clinton's have been in politics for many years. Plenty of time to fine tune voter fraud on a national scale.
Well....we have to try....and hope that enough of the media will report the truth and enough people pay attention.
"working in concert with the news media"
The media will have to take a big share of the blame for the misdeeds of the next Democratic President.
We walloped em with a stick. Now we are going to try carrots for a while. Right or wrong is really beside the point. It's setting up to be what it's setting up to be. Only a blind man politically cannot see what's coming.
Unfortunately, that's what will likely happen, absent a miracle candidate for the Republicans appears VERY soon, who could counter the MSM and the Hildabeast machine.....
Actually the war has been a military victory. It is true that the Treason Media has convinced those with no knowledge that it has gone badly.
Three thousand deaths in a three+ years is unbelievably small. Treason Media predictions prior to the war was that there would be thousands of deaths just taking Baghdad.
All forgotten in the spreading of the Official Treason Media lies.
Not likely. The Congress is still fairly conservative and probably will be for the next 6 years or so.
Where would you like your orangejumpsuit sent so you are ready for the rusty knife guys chanting "our god is greater"?
