Hillary Clinton Maintains Near Record-High Favorability
gallup.com ^ | May 21, 2012 | Frank Newport

PRINCETON, NJ -- Americans remain nearly as positive toward Hillary Clinton today as they have ever been over the past 20 years. The secretary of state's favorable rating remains at 66%, within one percentage point of her record-high rating in late 1998. Her unfavorable rating of 29% ties her record low since 1993.

Gallup's latest update of Clinton's favorable rating is from a USA Today/Gallup poll conducted May 10-13. Her 66% favorable rating, the same as she received in March 2011 and February 1999, is one point lower than the 67% high she reached in December 1998 just after her husband, President Bill Clinton, had been impeached by the House of Representatives. Her current 29% unfavorable rating is on the low end of the ratings she has received; her record low is a 21% unfavorable rating in 1992, but in that poll, more than one in five had no opinion.

Rush nailed it today.

He said that Hillary's numbers are up because she's been keeping her mouth shut.

The more she talks, the lower her numbers go.

If she is the VP nominee, she will have to talk.

Public indoctrinated citizens worship Che Guevara. Admiring Hilary should be no big step. Her murders aren’t even public record.

Why would the media pay for a favorability poll for a Sec of State?

There is only one answer, they are once again doing poll donation work for the Democrats. It’s their biggest monetary contribution.

Joe Biden was sent in back in 2008 because the Soros shadow government felt that Herself, the Cold and Joyless, should be benched at least for a short while, for her audacity of challenging The Anointed One. A small sop was thrown to Herself by offering one of the more powerful Cabinet positions, but it was more to shut up Bill than anything else.

Now the Soros machine is ready to give Herself a retread moment, and a chance to again steer the US Senate along the route deemed compatible with the World Union template.

Herself is tanned, rested and ready.

Ready for one of the most cynical Presidential contests in decades.

DUMP ROMNEY and replace him with a stellar Dark Horse.

IF Romney is probably going to lose to Obama, THEN it is incumbent upon the RNC to intervene and declare an OPEN Convention, regardless of the Primary delegates that Romney has.

Continued accumulation of Primary delegates in the remaining State Primaries is the key to improving Paul’s chances of forcing the GOP-E to hold an OPEN Convention in Tampa.

Paul will then have completed his main task in this Primary: giving the delegates the freedom to DUMP ROMNEY!

My goal is to defeat the insanity of Keyensian Economics in “both” of our very sorry political parties THIS YEAR!

This can be accomplished by the Delegates choosing a stellar Dark Horse Nominee, such as R-Rep. Allen West of Florida, to slaughter Obama in a November Landslide.

It is not enough to beat Obama, he must be smashed in a huge landslide to repudiate his Marxist ideas for America!

Romney is not Warrior enough to do so.

The key is to FORCE the GOP-E to allow for an OPEN Convention in Tampa. Without an OPEN Convention the SOS of INSANE Federal Over-Spending will keep America on the same crowded track with Greece, and Kalifornia.

There are over 15, 000, 000, 000, 000 reasons why spending more money this year than was taken in during the previous year is an INSANE path to financial destruction.

Neither Obama or Romney have presented a plan to spend our Federal dollars in a non-insane manner.

For example, the GOP Elite have stood in line to endorse Romney, to endorse “The Ryan Budget,” and to compromise-away every opportunity to reduce Federal Spending.

I included the Ryan Budget, because Rep. Paul Ryan himself says that his “Budget” will balance in 30 YEARS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW, I added those exclamation points, because both you and I know that Ryan’s budget will NEVER balance, and thus will never be a fact. The exclamation points are just for volume emphasis.

______________________

The main point of my post is as follows: In order to DUMP ROMNEY there must be an OPEN, or “Bartered” Convention.

Ron Paul, Santorum and Newt are our best hopes to achieve an OPEN Convention because they have the most Delegates to force the Romney Delegates to approve of an OPEN Convention.

Since RP is the only active Candidate left standing, he has the best chance of forcing the RNC to have an OPEN Convention in Tampa.

With an OPEN Convention, NONE of the Primary Candidates stand a chance of becoming the Nominee, except Romney.

That possibility must be countered by a stellar Dark Horse, that is someone that has not run in this years Primary Campaign.

Otherwise Romney will follow the same stupid path as McCain and lose to Obama “much to the surprise of the GOP-E.”

Ron Paul, Santorum and Newt were rejected by Primary voters, and would be re-soundly rejected by the voters in the National Election. Thus, their main value is to force an OPEN Convention.

The Convention Delegates then would have a chance to choose a Nominee who could easily defeat Obama.

I had earlier supported R-Sc Sen. Jim DeMint, but he will not leave the Senate. Now I support R-Fla. Rep. Allen West. Rep. Allen West is a retired US Army Colonel, straight-talking Conservative, AND is the only non-welcome member of the Congressional Black Caucus, (the Libs hate him).

There are many other Republican non-RINO Dark Horses who would make excellent Dark Horse Nominees.

The DUMP ROMNEY Campaign requires an OPEN or “Bartered” Convention in Tampa.

Make your voice and vote count towards an OPEN Convention in Tampa, Florida!

BTW, Nominee Allen West WOULD be Florida’s favorite son in November - - - .

Rush spoke of this today. Basically he said that the polls always show Hitlery with good numbers as long as she keeps her mouth shut just as she is doing now staying in the background. Rush said, however, whenever she opens her pie-hole her numbers go back down again.

Four years ago her Thighness told a black audience “Ahhhm in no ways tard”. That may have been true then. I’m 100% sure it’s not true now. I think she’s wore out and probably getting into the sauce pretty heavy these days. I just don’t think she’s got it in her to wade into the real fray anymore.

Not to rain on your parade, but did you know that the Heritage Foundation gave McCain an higher ‘report card’ grade than Allen West on conservative issues?

Every other word that comes from Hillary is a swear word in real life.
I can’t believe this person is even considered for election.
Bill and Hillary have left us quite a legacy. She is not Miss “Sweetness and Light” as she pretends. Read up on their backgrounds.
I would never want them back in the White House again.
