Huge ‘Super PAC’ Is Moving Early to Back Clinton
NY Times ^ | 01/24/2014 | NICHOLAS CONFESSOREJAN

The Obama political operation that once buried Hillary Rodham Clinton’s White House ambitions is now rapidly converging around her possible 2016 presidential bid, conferring on Mrs. Clinton enormous early advantages in money, expertise and voter targeting techniques.

On Thursday, Priorities USA Action, a “super PAC” that played an important role in helping re-elect President Obama, announced that it was formally aligning itself with Mrs. Clinton and would begin raising money to fend off potential opponents for 2016.

The group — the largest Democratic super PAC in the country — also named new directors, appointments that will cement the group’s pro-Clinton tilt and thrust veterans of Mr. Obama’s political and fund-raising operation into the center of the post-Obama Democratic Party.

It doesn’t matter, Slick Bill is moving his chess pieces and lining up the money. He wants to be co-President more than Hillary wants to be President I suspect.

What difference does it make? She is a fag loving, womyn, socialist dope. All the credentials to get elected. Experience, conservatism, patriotism and self reliance play no role here any longer. The mere fact we elected the buffoon in the whitehut, twice, clearly demonstrates this. I would not downplay her chances in this environment.

The GOP has a mega opportunity in 2014 to run the dems out of town over O care. What are they doing with it? Not a thing, they ware waiting for it to collapse. Meanwhile, the stooge in the whitehut is pumping billions or perhaps soon to be a trillion into it to force it to work. If you throw enough money at a loser, it can function no matter how badly. So, the GOP is squandering a key issue. They are not even up to fighing for any of the other major issues which have surfaced over the past few years from gun running to the IRS scandals, from the birth records to the NSA violations, not a one.

That's not fair. Hillary has every bit as many accomplishments as Barack Obama before he became President...

Uninformed, dependent voters + black vote + voter fraud + 3,000,000 conservatives staying home = Obama presidency.

He should not be the president.

I hope the 'rats do put her up in '16. If there is a more un-electable person in the 'rat party I can't think of him/her off the top of my head. Clinton has so much baggage - very real, very problematic statements and actions in her past it is amazing she is not in prison. Having her as an opponent would seem to be a wet-dream for a GOP campaign strategist.

Of course, I thought bammy was a dead duck in the '12 election and the GOP let him have a cake-walk campaign, never hit him hard on anything. Just because there's a literal ton of evidence against Clinton that should make any opponent of hers a sure-thing winner...doesn't mean the GOP will have the stones to use it.

Are you saying those conditions will not be present in 2016? Uninformed, dependent voters, blacks, and voter fraud are the hallmarks of the dem party, especially the second and third listed. Hopefully we can get those 3 Million conservatives to cast votes but that alone is not enough anymore.

I suspect you have this exactly backwards.

Without Hellery, Bill would be selling used cars and frequenting the lounge at the local Holiday Inn.;

I think the deck is stacked against conservatives. Add the media bias and complete adoration rather than investigation of Obama to the list of factors.

There should be such a push for voter ID laws in every state before 2016.

Hopefully, enough people are waking up and taking note of the corruption on the left, plus the economy and unemployment, and the nightmare Obamacare....there’s hope.

I agree there is hope. Were not so I would stop being involved in the program. I so wish to see these socialists run out of town.

Republicans would do well to insist that Fox broadcasts the debates, since they have the largest audience.

“So did Bubba but who should get the blame? How about all the conseratives who couldn’t vote for GHWB or Mitt?”

I don’t think the country would be much better today if McSuck, or Mittens was in office, though what you would hear on the news would be non-stop negative, most awful since...

I did vote for McSuck (well, Palin), and Mittens though I was beyond pissed off and disgusted beyond all recognition that I was forced to, as all through the election cycle until nomination the media told us for years that it would be McSuck, and then Mittens, just as they are now telling us that it will be either Krispy Kreme, or Jebby. Well, I am officially done with that, I would rather see the country burn to the ground, with a democrat in charge such as hitlary, than with a fake crummy RINO in charge like Krispy Kreme, though I don’t see the difference anyway, since the media and the cognitive dissonant population would find a way to blame the collapse on Republicans even if there was a democrat president, and only 10% republicans in the house and senate. The country will crash and burn with either a RINO or a demonrat in charge, so let it burn under a demonrat, at least there is a 2% chance that somebody somewhere might learn something. /rant off
