Jeb Bush to present Liberty Medal to Hillary Clinton (Still think we have two parties, folks?)

Hillary Rodham Clinton will receive the 2013 Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

Jeb Bush, the chairman of the Constitution Center, will present the award to Clinton at a ceremony scheduled for Sept. 10.

Both Clinton and Bush are potential contenders in the 2016 presidential elections, for opposing parties. But in a statement, the GOP's Bush only accentuated the positive.

“Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy,” said Bush, the Republican former Governor of Florida, son of a former president and brother of another. “These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”

Tickets for the general public will be made available in August. Details will be released next month, a Constitution Center spokeswoman said.....

Wow, and GOPers will likely nominate him to run against Hildabeast. It’s GAME OVER in America. I don’t think I’ll be returning to the USA anytime soon.

Sure had me fooled. I always thought that Hilly engaged people in Benghazi into the Benghazi Massacre, not “democracy.”

I’ve come to the conclusion the GOP doesn’t want Conservatives. The moderates, corporatists are running the party now. Last presidential election Romney ignored Conservatives. The Republicans overseeing the IRS abuses didn’t bother hyping their commitee activities cause I think they didn’t much care for the Conservatives being targeted.

We, Conservatives, are on are own.

Jeb 2016, Jeb 2016, Jeb 2016, Jeb 2016...

Think I’m kidding? I give it a year, year and a half, you just watch what you see here.

That’s not a dig at Jim either. I just know people, and they’ll be back to tell us what a great guy Jeb is.

Jim will give them what-for too.

And mccain said “Barrack Obama will not be bad for America.”

I’m happy I didn’t vote for old man Bush. I regret voting for George II, mccain and Romney. Voting for an “R” will never again be an option.

It’s time for Palin to step up, denounce mccain and announce the forming of a third party. If she’s not being blackmailed.

Actually I’m doing my Sam Houston routine. I shall return, but I must learn the intricacies of how corrupt governments really work behind the scenes so I can prepare myself for an eventual return when I can be most effective. But I may have to wait for another 18 years. 2 more years of Obummer; 8 years of HildaBeast; 8 years of Jeb and after that Americans might begin to think it’s important to stop following the PC thugs.

When this BS is done, when the demonic hordes of the Marxist Left have been driven back into the dark dry places they belong, we're going to have to come up with new names for or new awards to replace those which have been cheapened and soiled by their recipients in this dark age.

Same for my retired bones living happy and healthy here up in the boonies/mountains of the Great American Redoubt. I will never willingly leave the USA, but I know there are those that want to, or that have done so already. The frustration level is off the charts and I understand that but I feel there is still some fight left in a large percentage of Americans. At least ‘go down swingin’ is my personal motto if it comes to that. America is still 100% worth defending in my opinion. I think we are gonna know soon just how things are gonna play out. Stay safe.

Bush will be defeated in the ‘16 primary, unless grassroots conservatives conduct themselves foolishly and fail to nominate somebody.

Well, that is admirable. Civil war, however, is not very pretty. We did that once, you know.
America is dying from within. Half of the population is the enemy. Too many of the other half do not seem to have any fight left, or do not care, as long as they have their beer and TV.
