Associated Press ^ | January 30, 2010

Posted on 01/30/2011 4:27:21 AM PST by Zakeet

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is flying to Haiti to mediate in a political crisis there while other administration officials are keeping watch on violent protests halfway across the world in Egypt.

Clinton will meet Sunday with President Rene Preval and the three candidates vying to succeed him during her visit. She will also see a treatment center for the cholera epidemic that has killed almost 4,000 people.

She does hate him. She is purposefully not getting involved with Egypt so the President gets the blame. The problem is she is playing Russian Roulette because if Egypt becomes a Democratic country from this than President Obama will turn out the Savior of the World and Hillary will be left standing with nothing.

Yep, Egypt is in flames and she’s going to Haiti. I thought bill was in charge of that Caribbean paradise.

Haiti is going to cause the price of oil for the next 50 years. Our friends in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait are watching.

Gas is going to push us to a myth of green energy and American Citizens will be called racist because Obama will be another Jimmy Carter in 2012 he will be landslided.

Maybe hillary is going to haiti to check on her errant husband, willie. Slick willie has been in charge of taking donations from the misguided and doing some kind of money transfer (not to the poor and so forth) to the powerful there. Surely, he has “dabbled” with a haitian woman or two.

Well, can’t same I blame her after the way President Zero snubbed her at the SOTU snorefest. I guess as far as the Clintons are concerned now, Zero made his bed, now he can lay in it.

I don’t believe she chose to go to Haiti. She serves at the direction of the President. Nothing good will come of events now unfolding in the ME. In sending Hillary to Haiti, the administration will have the perfect scapegoat, and eliminate a political rival at the same time, for 2012 and beyond. I’d be surprised if she doesn’t resign in the coming week. If she doesn’t, her political future is toast.

I think I read this was a pre-planned trip. It does seem in the middle of an international crisis she could postpone- but I guess a couple of hours on the ground down there won’t alter the course of history.

I agree with you.

Hillary doesn't decide her own agenda; the POTUS decides her agenda.

Haiti???

NOW?

This is absolutely eggregious, and tantemount to a national security blunder, sending the Secretary of State to the Carribean while Egypt burns & falls.....

Oh, okay... I didn't know it was pre-planned; MAYBE they just want to get it out of the way, BEFORE the huge explosion in the Middle East is heard all around the world...

In other words, I do not believe that current conditions will radically subside anytime soon.

Agree with both of you. This is what we see out of these clowns all the time. The only question left to be answered is are they incompetent or is this all part of their plan.

You really think that is the way it will end? The Democratic Republic of Egypt? Not as long as the mb has a say to it. They just released their buddies in the prisons. Bet that is a harty home coming? (sarc)

Considering Haiti’s most recent arrivals, they needed another plane to carry all the cash to “mediate”.

Perhaps Hillary can use the occasion to explain to President Preval as to what happened to the millions upon millions dollars that her husband raised for Haitian relief........

No, gas prices will kill our economy. We don’t have the infrastructure to supply all of our needs in green energy. I do not believe we can get enough wind/solar power to sustain us let alone have our economy growth.

You want to see some pissed off people, when gas gets to the magic $4.00 a gallon people will react.

"You want to see some pissed off people, when gas gets to the magic $4.00 a gallon people will react.

I remember it being said during the Arab oil embargo of the 1970s that the American people would "rise up" and overthrow the U.S. Govt. if gasoline prices ever reached $1 a gallon...we quietly waited in gas lines for hours, just to get it at $1.19, and were limited to $5 maximum purchase by rationing. No, you'll see pissed off people when such things as a loaf a bread sell for $10, or a half gallon of milk for $25, if it's to be found at all. That will happen as gasoline goes beyond $5 per gallon in a span of months, and it starts hitting folks in the belly. When a trip to the grocery store means returning with only a few potatoes, or one scrawny chicken, and you can't afford to heat or light your house. That's when governments get toppled.
