Clinton (Hillary) staying as far away from Charlotte as physically possible
Foreign Policy ^ | 8/30/3012 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 08/30/2012 9:35:00 PM PDT by GVnana

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as a sitting administration official, does not have any role at the Democratic National Convention next week in Charlotte. But she seems to gone out of her way to avoid the festivities, as she is traveling this week and next to the Cook Islands, Indonesia, China, Timor-Leste, Brunei, and Russia.

"The Cook Islands this year are the hosts of one of the most important institutions of the Pacific called the Pacific Island Forum," a senior State Department official said Thursday. "It's a group that meets yearly with a number of working groups. It's been in existence almost half a century; it's very significant."

You know things are bad for Obama when Hillary Clinton doesn’t want to go near him. Why would she, the Clintons despise Obama

Nature blessed her in that regard. She's unusually well-equipped for sitting.

Hillary got that bye-bye Barack meme too. No love lost there. He screwed her out of the nomination last time. (Doubtless, she DOES probably have info he really isn’t a citizen — and also doubtless he had enough dirt on her from the Chicago sewer to put Hill. and/or Bill in Jail for Whitewater, Mena, Foster, and God knows what else — so he gave her state department to shut her up.)

Whatever Hillary is, no one ever accused her of being stupid. She was always dangerous because she is so focused. This is her last gasp of getting to tour the world for free, so she’s doing a Moochie.

Actually now if she’d extend that zone to say, US territorial waters, and make it permanent - that would be great.

I'd have thought Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard would want to avoid the implications of being photographed with a woman wearing a prison uniform.

Hitlery is just looking for some foreign port where she can let her hair down and party with her girlfriends. Hard to do in the good ole USA.

I wonder which gal she will be dancing with in the Cook Islands?

It's close but I think Hillary is the least freaky looking of the two.

What's the difference between Hillary Clinton and Julia Gillard?



One is a woman who was involved in some dubious financial arrangements when practising law







The other is the US Secretary of State.

If she ever put nylon stockings on, the friction would start a fire walking up the hallway.

Hillary texting Pelosi

Nope, I do not care. It is going to be a real mess
and I am not going to be there. He hasn't bothered
to meet with me on REAL business, why should I
show up for his stupid frat party?

Ah but she IS stupid - she absolutely refuses to learn from her mistakes. All she knows how to do is floor it, and repeat what she failed at, ad infinitum. And that's not focus - that's the OCD primal rage of a two-year-old-emotional-age throwing a perpetual tantrum.

That anyone still follows her is a black appraisal of humanity's future.

Oh, btw, she's running for president.

THIS year.

I doubt that. She had her run. She has no future.

Bill will be dead or dying by ‘16 and she is not up to the task without Bubba

There are a few non-poll items to consider, to give us hope:

1. Clintons are politically savvy (no, I am not in favor of Hillary, do don’t incorrectly insinuate that from my comments) and the fact that she is staying away, even though Bill is in an Obama ad is telling.
2. I have no cable and had to stomach PBS coverage last night...the panel, Brooks included, had a VERY difficult time saying ANYTHING negative about the speeches/speakers. Brooks showed his naivete saying Romney should have been using the heart-felt speakers in ads all along...I differ, and that would have been OLD news had he spent that fuel prior to today.
3. We can debate until the cows come home, but last night was geared towards the 2% undecideds only...they did it well and that’s why and only why Sarah wasn’t included and others who are typically polarizing. I love Sarah, but I see the reasoning.

These points give me tremendous hope.

We have to win by minimally 5%, and that includes the Senate races, too...3% margin keeps recounts away; 2% will be dead and illegal alien votes, double, triple votes, Diebold machine-generated inside pollsters car trunks, etc.

So do you think Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC is going to be a subliminal hit job on obama? LOL

Received an email about the reason Hillary didn’t drop the note on Obama last election was Chelsea’s life was threatened? Anyone know?

Don't look now, but that hideous pantsuit on the right is the Australian black-and-white version of Moochelle's black widow spider dress worn at Obozo's election victory rally.

Fox this morning had a panel with two of the three being Democrats that acted the same way. Even Juan, who was one of the three, had nice things to say about the speeches/speakers. They all agreed the Republicans have a deep bench of young men and women including Hispanics.

Scary to have them all agree!!

“Whatever Hillary is, no one ever accused her of being stupid.”

Speak for yourself.

I think she passed stupid like it was sitting still.

If she was smart the MSM wouldn’t have to lie for her.

“...as she is traveling this week and next to the Cook Islands, Indonesia, China, Timor-Leste, Brunei, and Russia....”

Since she’s about to leave office when Ø does in January, she’s doing what she did when she was about to lose White House priviledges. She’s going on a ‘Round the World Tour, on our dime, like she did before her and her hubby left the WH. Wonder if Chelsea is going to join her on this jaunt around the planet.
