Shocker! Scaife endorses Hillary
'Right-wing conspiracy' leader now pushes Clinton for prez
WASHINGTON Richard Mellon Scaife, formerly No. 1 on Bill Clinton's enemies list as the so-called "marionette" of the "vast right-wing conspiracy," today formally endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton for president proving, once again, politics makes strange bedfellows.
Scaife, who personally funded many of the investigations of the Clinton administration that led to the president's impeachment, used his Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper to express support for Clinton.
Clinton faces a do-or-die primary in Pennsylvania Tuesday. Most state newspapers have endorsed her opponent, Barack Obama.
The Tribune-Review cited Obama's lack of experience and his widely criticized comments about bitter voters living in small towns.
"In sharp contrast, Clinton is far more experienced in government as an engaged first lady to a governor and a president, as a second-term senator in her own right," the paper's editorial said. "She has a real voting record on key issues. Agree with her or not, you at least know where she stands instead of being forced to wonder."
As surprising as the endorsement might appear, it is not entirely unexpected. Last month, Clinton met with the Tribune-Review's editorial board and Scaife, who also is a principle owner of NewsMax.com. Following that meeting, Scaife penned a personal editorial titled "Hillary, Reassessed," declaring how impressed he had been by the former first lady.
"Her meeting and her remarks during it changed my mind about her," Scaife wrote.
Scaife's mind has been changing about the Clintons for some time, as WND previously reported.
There is little question that when then-first lady Hillary Clinton famously lashed out at foes as a "vast, right-wing conspiracy," Scaife was one of the people on her mind....

I’d guess he’s doing this not because he developed a love for Hillary, but because he’s that scared of Obama and all that will come with him.
A major frontal assault against Obama — from Operation Chaos?
I’m with Ann!
Conservatives for Hillary!
“She has a real voting record on key issues. Agree with her or not, you at least know where she stands instead of being forced to wonder.”
I don’t think there is ANY doubt as to where either one of these radical Marxists stands. The only difference between them really, is that she is female, and he is a radical, black racist.
Other than that, call me rubber stamp.
The Clintons must have something on him.
that might be too, lol
The conspiracy keeps getting bigger and more complex.
The Tribune Review, like Fox news has been drifting slowly but surely to port side. I don’t understand it, but there it is.
Operation Chaos continues ...
My thought exactly... : )
Every whore has a price.
Wonder what Hillary has on him?..
Before this election is over, Washington is going to burn. I predict that there will be political “hits” this year and if Obama is elected, full scale violence.
Don’t these fools remember what the Clintons did to us in the 1990’s? They accused conservatives as being terrorists and a bunch of other evil things.
I thought I’d never see the day when conservatives would be supporting another Clinton for the presidency. They would rather see that witch get into the White House rather than a good man like John McCain.
I really worry about my country nowadays.
guys like these, including Hollywood, can afford to be liberal... that’s the way i see it...
Exactly, Smooth. I only have to be hit over the head with a 2X4 by someone once for them to get my attention and when the turkey supported Murtha he got my attention. This guy is no conservative, maybe he was once but that's in the past.
Didn’t know that ... thanks

We’re not supporting a Clinton Presidency, we supporting an Obama loss so there isn’t an Obama Presidency.
Now, will Hillary admit there really is a “Vast LEFT Wing Conspiracy”?
The Goon squad got to him....perhaps a little behind-the-scenes arm twisting by fast Eddie.
These sad "conservatives". If it's not a homosexual child it's a fast woman.
LOL - I’m sure she’d like to call the MSM on it.
But she knows they’ll deal even more damage after that. She had to play the joke off Saturday Night Live.
Watch. If it’s Obama vs. McCain, you’ll hear ten zillion jokes about McCain being forgetful, wearing Depends diapers, taking geritol, in a rest home, etc. etc. etc. from comedy shows, etc. all the way to November.
And Obomba will be considered “eloquent” and “energetic”.
Thanks for the Post Smooth.
No surprise. Fox News is also doing it’s part in trying to sink the Obama candidacy in favor of Hillary’s. McCain had better watch out if Hillary becomes the Democratic nominee: he’s going to long for the good old days of a Vietcong torture chamber...
This is World Nut Daily’s take on things. I have learned to take it with a tablespoon of salt.
Scaife didn’t endorse Hillary for prez. He endorsed her over Obambi for the RAT nomination.
ANYONE endorsing the most detestable woman in the history of America, for any reason, at any time, has a mental disorder.
That statement is fiction. We know it isn’t true for Charlie, and probably not for Martin, and definately not for anyone involved in politics.
To get to the issue, Scaife might be trying to push Hillary because he sees her as the weaker candidate. I have heard that McCain would prefer Hillary as his opponent; he knows how to run against her.
Or, like Murdock, he may just be supporting who he believes will win, for whatever benefit he can get out of it.
WND is a good conservative site often quoted by Rush. What have you learned that indicates anything else?
Not “it’s part”; “its part”.
Good Grief, how can you say such a thing?
He's not scared of Obama, he's scared of what his wife could discover to clean his clock with in the divorce that Hillary's P.I.'s dug up about him. Besides, it's easier for the elite to stick together (Scaife, Heinz, Soros, etc.) than to argue over little things like who should be the next President when it doesn't matter a whit since all three of them are wholly owned subsidiaries of Soros et.al. and will take their marching orders from them no matter which of the three is elected.
Black humor, sir.
Not to mention a serious drinking problem and a plate in his head. LOL!

If Obama is elected, I will look forward to it.
