Skip to comments.Pelosi: Hillary is more prepared than Obama was
Posted on 09/23/2013 2:03:45 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Consider this a bit of a midday palate-cleanser, as CNN’s Candy Crowley manages to wrongfoot Nancy Pelosi during a weird pitch for Hillary Clinton. It’s not often one will see a leading pol endorse a candidate before the candidate even bothers to set up an exploratory committee, let alone announce the candidacy, but Pelosi told Crowley for State of the Union that when Hillary gets in the race, she’ll win it … even though a few other Democrats might want to run for the nomination as well. Pelosi also claims that Hillary would be the “best prepared” candidate to enter the White House, which leaves out the current VP, who has made it clear he’s interested in the job, too.
Oh, and Obama wasn’t very well prepared, either — at least not as prepared as Hillary:
No surprise here, but Nancy Pelosi hopped on the Hillary bandwagon on Sunday, telling CNNs Candy Crowley in no uncertain terms, When she becomes president, she will be one of the best-equipped, best-prepared people to enter the White House in a very long time. Having a female ensconced at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, she added, would be magnificent for America.
On the question of experience, the House minority leader was unequivocal, saying that the former first lady would be more prepared than the current president as well as his two predecessors. With all due respect to our president, and I think he is magnificent and wonderful and a blessing to us, [Clinton would] certainly [be] more prepared than President Obama, certainly more prepared than President Bush, certainly more prepared than President Clinton, she said. George H. W. Bush, having served as vice president under Ronald Reagan, was very prepared to assume the presidency, in Pelosis estimation.
More prepared than Bush 43 or even her own husband? Both of them had multiple terms as governors in their respective states before running for the presidency, accumulating plenty of executive experience in the public sector. George W. Bush also ran businesses in the private sector. I’m assuming Pelosi can explain how eight years in the Senate, and four years as the purveyor of reset buttons and not much of anything else but Benghazi at State, compares to that experience. Speaking of Benghazi, how prepared was Hillary to deal with a potential terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11, in what became Terrorist Central in North Africa because of the US-led intervention against Moammar Qaddafi pushed by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State? Ahem.
The best part, though, is watching Pelosi stammer when Crowley brings up Joe Biden. “Well, I’m talking about the presidents that we’ve had,” she backtracks, adding, “You know, when they just announce that they’re running …” Maybe she should just stick to that answer from now on.
That doesn’t say much about either of them.
. . . but not back in 2008 when she threw her under the bus.
The Benghazi debacle certainly makes Hillary “prepared”. Of course.
Imagine what the history books will be saying about Pelosi.
He still isn’t.
The worst President ever.
Hillary has Benghazi blood on her just as much as OBayMe. I’d say they’re about equal.
But Nancy, a little over five years ago you dim-o-crats told us Barry was “ready to rule from day one”.
Why the change of heart?
What a joke...Dumb or Dumber.
Yep. 1,000,000 times more prepared than Obozo is still zero.
Oh he$$ Nancy. Even you were more prepared than O was
He WAS ready to “rule”. He just wasn’t ready to operate within the Constitution.
I don’t want to live in a world with President Hillary.
More prepared for life in prison. Barry’s crime came after he was elected.
Lenin and Mao were also very well prepared.
“The best part, though, is watching Pelosi stammer when Crowley brings up Joe Biden.”
Joe will be given an offer he can’t refuse to get out of the way.
Pelosi should be heeded! It was she that said the stimulus bill would create 500 million new jobs. (CNN video available at YouTube).
Obama was totally unprepared and Hitlery is slightly better. Is that the scale we’re working on?
To paraphrase Pelosi — Obviously we’ll have to vote for Hillary to see what she’ll do...
Hubris! Thy name is Little Stevie Dunham!
“Pelosi: Hillary is more prepared than Obama was”
Wow, that gives the term, “Damning with faint praise” a whole new dimension.
Yeah ... so is my cat.
So Obama was 100% unprepared. Does that mean that Hilary is like only 99% unprepared?
Can anyone name her successes? HilaryCare is just ObamaCare. What has she succeeded at, other than riding Bill’s coattails?
Hillary and female do not belong in the same sentence
Hillary is more prepared to be an astronaut that Obama is, so let’s shoot her into space!
“more prepared than Obama was”
I think that about sums it up.
RE: Can anyone name her successes?
Benghazi comes to mind.
Travelgate, Filegate, Whitewater, Cattle Futures-gate are the others that come to mind.
RE: Hillary 2016
more prepared than Obama was
Hillary and Obama : WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
I’d like to see a list of Hillary’s actual accomplishments, for example - number of bills she originated as a Senator; outcomes of her efforts as Secretary of State.
Seems like all that’s happened is in the category of ‘grooming’ for the POTUS, nice hair, smile, etc., all except body weight seem OK. Perhaps a fat farm will do the trick - even a movie of that experience as well.
More prepared for what? Finishing off what’s left of our constitutional republic, maybe?
My dog is more prepared than Obama was...
Hillary? The Benghazi Witch!
“...she will be one of the best-equipped, best-prepared people..”
Hill will be equipped and prepared to do what? Put the final nails in the coffin of our country?
Pray for our nation.
If Hillary decides to run she'll get the vote of every blue state because the Democrats are blindly ideological, tribal in nature, and have zero morals. She'll take several red states, because as the last election demonstrated, Republicans are more than happy to sit home and give up their state to the Dems.
If Republican voters don't go to the polls in any better numbers in 2016, Hillary is a guaranteed bet. With the Media in their corner, Acedemia, the problems with voter fraud and intimidation helping the Dems.....Republicans have to get out and vote.
I’m more prepared than Obama was
She can fall and hit her head at exactly the right moment. Had plenty of practice.
My ten year-old son is more prepared than Obama was.
Any random person in a mental institution picked by the tips and the tips only of the Bozo arrows would be better prepared than Obama.
We certainly don’t need Hillary Clinton for president. May the Lord rebuke her and remove her from politics.
Pelosi had also predicted that she'd still be Speaker of the House after the '10 elections.
On the other hand, the Democrats seem to be pretty good at stuffing ballot boxes.
Just think all the experience she got from BENGHAZI and FAST and FURIOUS. THE FOREIGNER was totally green in these areas before being elected.
Prepared to what? Ruin the country? Make us the world laughing-stock? Thought Hillary’s husband had the corner on destruction until Obama came along.
Joe Biden is more prepared (on paper) than the 2 of them combined were (or will be if she runs) .
Everyone is more prepared than Pelosi, and smarter too. We should start a Pelosi for president campaign. It’s time for her to run for higher office. We could have that old bag to kick around for awhile.
Nice portrait of Osagyefo Savior Dear Leader Obama the First ....
