..and on Page 5 of The Daily News I found one reader's comments, presumably a DemoRAT, particularly true & "devastating:"

"35 references to "I" is pretty clear why Hillary is continuing to run. I, I, I, me, me, my, my, my...Until she came along with her entitlement mentality and expectation of a coronation, the party wasn't divided.

I say Shrillary's toast. What say ye?

I say that these people parrot what the media says.

There was nothing inappropriate about her comment. There was nothing at all.

It proves that the American people can be led about by the nose.

I don’t think she’s toast. I do think her comment was plain stupid, but it’s gotten blown out of proportions by the media and the faithful.

She won’t quit, ever. The democratic convention is going to be a hoot and a half to watch this summer. A true popcorn and widescreen moment if ever there was one.

When I first read hillary’s comment I didn't think it was so awful but then after I heard a video of her actually saying it, I changed my mind.

It sounds like she is saying “I am staying in because someone might decide to kill him and I would be in a position to take the nomination”. That is pretty bad and the fact that she said it might get some whack job to actually do it.

If Terry McCaulife hadn't said: "Anything can happen between now and then" a week earlier, I might not think as much about it. But his comment coupled with HER comment tells me there were real backroom discussions about the possibility...

Were there backroom discussions about Brown, Foster??

Assassination by subliminal suggestion?

Hmmmm ... And if some wacker does Obama in should Hillary be charged, or would Rush be held responsible because of Operation Chaos?

That’s corny and tinfoil stuff. He context of the discussion, which I listened to, was campaigns that go into summer. She was getting grief over her continuing her campaign late into the primary season. She was simply making an observation that is perfectly understandable for those of our era. Bobby Kennedy campaign was going late into the primary season when he was assassinated.

Now that I’ve said it, too, does that mean I’m trying to get Obama killed?

America is full of sheeple.

I don’t mind that the democrats whack each other. I just despise the lying media who is driving his....and leading the susceptible about by the nose.

Democrats can say and do atrocious things and everyone is supposed to ignore it. I’m thinking of even self-aggrandizing lies like Hillary ducking Bosnian snipers or Bill Richardson putting ‘professional baseball player’ on his cv. The lies are exposed, with videos and irrefutable evidence, and the media eventually just says, “Never mind.”

Either one of those lies would have sunk George Bush. Imagine if he had lied about being a professional ball player or had lied about coming under fire while he was in the National Guard. A little word like ‘macaca’ destroyed George Allen.

My husband says it’s because Democrats (and the media) don’t care about character in their own office holders. If someone is able to advance their leftist agenda, it doesn’t matter. Lying boldly may even be an advantage.

Do not forget: The Clintons represent exactly what the Democrat Party is and stands for. They were the Democrat Party's standard bearers for years. Now, the Democrats are "throwing them under the bus" because it is politically expedient to do so. If it were not, Democrats and their operatives would still be praising, promoting, and empowering the Clintons.

The "very dark soul" that we have seen is the very dark soul of the Democrat Party of the 21st century.

Note that Democrats showed no outrage over

Prayers that God will damn America!

Accusations that the U.S. government invented the AIDS virus for use in genocide!

Accusations that the U.S. government and/or President Bush were behind the 9/11 attacks on America!

The indimidation of witnesses, obstruction of justice, and perjury committed by the President of the United States!

They also showed no outrage at the following remarks:

"I've been in public life for a long time. I've been accused of a lot of things. This one really cut to the core of who I am."
Hillary Clinton
(Responding to the accusation that she called Paul Frey a "f***ing Jew b******")

“Where is the g**d*** f***ing flag?... I want the g**d*** f***ing flag up every f***ing morning at f***ing sunrise.”
Hillary Clinton
(Addressing her Arkansas staff.)

“Bill and I have been accused of everything, including murder, by some of the very same people who are behind these allegations. So from my perspective this is part of a continuing political campaign against my husband.”
Hillary Clinton
(Concerning the allegations that Bill Clinton had had an affair)
(The allegations were later proven to be true.)

“I want you to get rid of all these bitches he’s seeing…I want you to give me the names and addresses and phone numbers, and we can get them under control.”
(To a detective, concerning Bill Clinton’s philandering)

Only within a narrowly limited context. When taken in light of the body count around the Clintons, it takes on a whole new meaning.

You are probably correct. (about him being charged)


Should the Obama-lama-ding-dong get elected (and make it 'till the swearing in)) he will, no doubt get Rush for repeating that Obama The Magic Negro piece, over and over. ;)

Now we're getting down to the meat of the situation.


The Marxist had better get that thought detector™ off the drawing board, and into their arsenal of people control weapons, fairly soon.

With all this P/C bull$hite, temporarily in vogue, there's no telling what "we the people" are thinking.

Oh ... and have a nice day. ;)

Obama is not a muslim infiltrator; he is a marxist or socialist if you wish.

He was mentored in his youth by Frank ‘the communist’ party member and also had his first fundraiser for the Illinois Senate by Ayers, another communist.

His book outlines much of his feelings based in marxist thought ie. class, race, economic divisions and his speaking is a mask to cover that.

It is no mere accident the National Journal rated him the most left/liberal voting record.

And David Horowitz has revealed the mentality of the Left and how it has united with the Islamic fascists against the US. Obama’s inclinations is to follow that road. But that does not make him a muslim.

Obama’s religion is marxist black liberation theology. That’s his creed.

If you want to influence people convey those facts. Calling him a muslim will empower him and allow the opposition only the mere gain of belittling themselves.

According to the media this is the third time, she has brought up Bobby's assassination, once in March...I don't know when the other time was.

If you don't think she is ...

a. Trying to plant the seed for some wacko/wackos to kill him.

and/or...

b. State this as a reason for her to stay in, because Obama is apt to be killed before he can secure the nomination.

Then, you are a little more than somewhat naive, or you are in hillary's camp. Period.

This election is quickly destroying this country and turning us into something akin to a third world banana republic. My faith in the American people to be sensible and to do the right thing is all but gone.

First we get a candidate who is stunningly unqualified and so naive in just about everything that it is scary that he is being considered for the presidency. He has surrounded himself with truely despicable people who make no secret of their racism and hatred of this country. But he can read a speech off of a teleprompter very well and he is the right color so that makes him presidential material to millions of Americans.

Next we have a candidate who sees no problem with restricting Constitutionally protected free speech in an effort to get revenge on those who wronged him. He has completely bought into the socialist mantra of tax cuts for the rich, and manmade global warming - yet he is supposed to be the ‘conservative’ choice.

Finally we have a candidate who is well known to be a self serving, sociopathic, compulsive liar who will stop at nothing to gain power. She will say anything to anyone in an attempt to get people to vote her. Even though it is obvious that she is full of crap millions of people don’t care and are just as obsessed as she is that she gain more power.

I know that politics has always been dirty and that no candidate is perfect. However I really believe that we have reached a new low in this country with the terrifying choices we have this election. Hillary’s RFK comments, and the public non-reaction to it, just goes to show that this country is just about done. This is something that I would fully expect to see in some South American banana republic, not in the United States of America. I just hope that we haven’t passed the point of no return.

I must respectfully disagree. If someone else said it, it might not be inappropriate. In this case, however, the Clinton legacy includes dead people who got in the Clintons’ way. They hired thugs to intimidate people, including the children of Kathleen Willey. There is absolutely nothing she would not do for power.

She clearly suggested that she was staying in this because he might be whacked.

Me too. I have no use for Hillary Clinton. However, those who consider themselves masters of the universe (MSM) have had my utmost contempt for decades. They are simply shilling for Obama indirectly and the Democratic Party directly. The Dems want the campaign over and they’re attacking Hillary to accomplish that.

They will want Obama more than McCain, so expect this same kind of “gotcha” journalism at the speed of light when Obama is finally confirmed.
