Hillary in Midair (Major MSM Clinton for president puff-piece)
New York Magazine ^ | Sunday, September 22, 2013 | Joe Hagan

Posted on 09/22/2013 7:30:44 AM PDT by kristinn

For four years, Hillary Rodham Clinton flew around the world as President Barack Obama’s secretary of State, while her husband, the former president Bill Clinton, lived a parallel life of speeches and conferences in other hemispheres. They communicated almost entirely by phone. They were seldom on the same continent, let alone in the same house.

But this year, all that has changed: For the first time in decades, neither one is in elected office, or running for one. Both are working in the family business, in the newly renamed nonprofit that once bore only Bill’s name but is now called the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, which will hold its annual conference in New York next week.

“We get to be at home together a lot more now than we used to in the last few years,” says Hillary Clinton. “We have a great time; we laugh at our dogs; we watch stupid movies; we take long walks; we go for a swim.

“You know,” she says, “just ordinary, everyday pleasures.”

In the world of the Clintons, of course, what constitutes ordinary and everyday has never been either. So the question was inevitable: Given who he is, and who she is, does Bill, among their guffaws over the dogs and stupid movies, harangue her daily about running for president?

To this, Hillary Rodham Clinton lets loose one of her loud, head-tilted-back laughs. “I don’t think even he is, you know, focused on that right now,” she says. “Right now, we’re trying to just have the best time we can have doin’ what we’re doin’. ”

There’s a weightlessness about Hillary Clinton these days. She’s in midair, launched from the State Department toward … what?

I'm sorry, but this is the biggest piece of lying horseshit puff I've ever read.....really! The idea that these two spend any time together that isn't scripted for the media is just horseshit, let alone this bloated hippo going swimming or getting Slick Willie's nose out of a line of cocaine long enough to take a frickin' walk. Don't make me laugh.

She Who Must Not Be Named is the most ruthless woman ever to stalk the halls of power. Never forget that she is a student and disciple of Saul Alinsky. She has used the Rules for Radicals extensively in clawing her way to the top.

Her ultimate goal has always been the Oval Office. Her boast of being “Co-President” was not idle hubris. When her legal career was thwarted after Watergate, she married into power, using William the Impeached as a stepping stone.

She then used the NY Senate seat as another springboard to power but was foiled again, this time by the Chicago Machine, who had already chosen Odinga to carry the party banner.

Examine her personality. She has the need to dominate. It’s not enough that her subjects obey her commands; they must be forced to obey against their will, or the needed gratification is not derived.

She is a compulsive liar. She is a consummate fraud. She is most likely a lesbian with a deep-seeded hatred of the men who, in her mind, deny her her rightful place in history. Never again must she be allowed to approach the levers of authority, for that day will spell the doom of the Republic.

It's 3:00 in the morning. The red telephone rings. Do you trust Mrs. Snopes Clinton to come up with a credible lie?

I didn't think so.

I didn't read the whole artice. Does it ever point out that this "family business" is something like 50 million dollars in the hole?

And we're supposed to give this woman and her husband the purse containing over 3 trillion dollars?

Well, good. Do the country a favor and continue pleasuring yourselves in the privacy of your own home.

The narrative is being set. They are so in love with each other. Such a stable couple.

What a pantload.

Of course. The system is now completely rigged. You will never EVER see a Republican back in the White House. If they *do* permit one, it will be a Democrat version of a Republican.

Gennifer Flowers wouldn’t give Slick Willy the time of day a few years ago. Now, she’s ready to take him back. They are going for the “Poor Hillary” angle. Billy is going to leave her.

this bloated hippo going swimming

Your comparison is perhaps more correct than you realize. Hippos are extremely dangerous, yet most people think of them as just these huge, fat, harmless water creatures.

“Never again must she be allowed to approach the levers of authority, for that day will spell the doom of the Republic.”

Looking back on the last 30 or 40 years that I’ve been able to vote, I find it amazing that the same cast of characters always seems to be jockeying for position and power.

We seriously need to implement terms limits for congressional seats, and not allow a constant revolving door in and out of other appointed positions.

What a regtag collection of criminals and reprobates. Is this REALLY the best we can do?

I think at this point, Hillary could not possibly be the worst president in American history. She’d be a Romulus Augustulus.

I get what you’re saying, and that’s scary.

Romulus Augustulus was the last emperor of the Roman Empire. Rome fell when he was in power. The analogy that America as we know it comes to an end, with President Hillary, is not something we want to comtemplate.

Yes, because they are all in league, including the press, and they will DESTROY any decent person who steps up to run.

This is not a Democracy.

Nor is this a Constitutional Republic.

Hill is doubling down on heterosexuality. She must really want the Oval Office bad to fake it for a few more years. Of course, a complicit press helps.

Well, I'm no photoshop expert, but I figured I couldn't do much worse. A little digital nip/tuck, some subtle blurring to take care of the wrinkles, and a little adjustment to brighten up the eyes, and Voila!

Obama is a puppet clown who is controlled by his Blackberry. He always has been, Hillary was denied the presidency, but her agenda has been pushed anyway.

Hillary doesn't want to rule - she wants to destroy. And she's raised an army of fools who actually believe she gives a damn about them.

There is no Obamacare - it's Hillarycare, and it always has been. And like everything she does, it's made out of claws.
