'Ruthless' Hillary Clinton returns as the '90s make a comeback
Chicago Tribune ^ | February 11, 2014 | Cathleen Decker

Posted on 02/11/2014 6:39:55 AM PST by ConservativeStatement

The ‘90s are back, all but the shoulder pads and bad hair, and Hillary Rodham Clinton is right in the middle of it once more, as much cultural avatar as political potentate.

The decade that brought unending political scandals -- as well as the best economy that the nation has had in ages, by many markers -- started to resurface a couple of weeks ago when potential presidential candidate Rand Paul, the senator from Kentucky, took indirect aim at Clinton over her husband’s relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Then, this week, came a piece on the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website that cited papers archived at the University of Arkansas after the death of Diane Blair, a close Clinton friend.

Lol. She is already 67 years old. That makes her TOO old, physically, to start the campaign for presidency. She's THINKING like a teenager believing that she's young enough for the presidency.

LOL! It wasn't the Clintons that brought the scandals. It was the decade!

-- as well as the best economy that the nation has had in ages,

On behalf of The Chicago Tribune, may I say, "Thank you, Newt Gingrich and the rest of the Republican majority that forced Bill Clinton to zip up his pants once in a while and sign Welfare Reform, tax cuts, internet expansion, etc."

If you want to torpedo Hillary [and who doesn’t], an effective Alinsky tactic [the irony!] would be for thousands and thousands of people to load up soundbites of Hillary shreaking or cackling as their cellphone ringtones. I know it would be tough on the phone owner but by 2015 people would be absolutely sick and tired [or is that ‘tarred’] of her voice. “Anybody but Hillary” would sweep the land.

Yeah, like, well, since the five years or so before when Reagan was president.

How quickly the left forgets. How quickly they forget that the strength of the Clinton economy came after 1995 when Bill and Hill were unable to ram anything they wanted through congress. How quickly they forget how quickly all these advantages were p*ssed away when the jackass party to back control of both houses of congress in 2006.

There are too many voters who don’t follow politics and will decide that “it is time for a woman” or something similar. But someone such as Sarah Palin would get bashed by TV comedy shows and those same voters would dismiss her as a kook because a comedian or late night talk show host told them so is incapable. Democrats are fueled by the low-information voters.

So the 1990s are "too far back" to mention, say the same "journalists" who obsessed over whether a "mean" Mitt Romney cut another student's hair in the 1960s.

Obama will eventually make mincemeat of The Rodham whether she runs or not.

Bill Clinton had his own “binders full of women.”

That's who my suggested tactic is aimed at. Consider:

Your phone goes off.

Hillary's cackle blares forth.

All around go "My G-d! What the h-ll is that?!"

Says you: "Oh. That's Hillary".

Says they: "Sheesh..."

Effect when Hillary's name spotted on the ballot: "Man, I don't want to hear any more of that."

She’s not 67 until October 2014, and her supporters think she is delightful and always will.

hey hildabeast, thanks for insuring walmart pushed its manufacturers to china. you and BJ did a great job of screwing America and propping up china

also, thanks again for kick starting china’s nuclear program by insuring access for those chinese scientists. that was just great

personally, i’d have her, BJ, and 0bama in court on treason charges. but then again, this is a banana republic, so that won’t happen any time soon

They don't forget.. they simply live and thrive on the lie. What they'd like us all to forget is the economy was in a major tailspin going into the 1994 midterm elections. Only after the massive GOP win that resulted in spending cuts forced upon a VERY reluctant Bubba did we ever see budget surpluses and a growing economy.

The truth is she was a one-woman Rorschach test of the nation’s shifting gender roles.

Cathleen Decker doesn't 'get it'.

Bill Clinton would hit on vulnerable women like Paula Jones - then get Hillary would step in to do damage control - the old 'sluts and nuts' attacks used on the discarded women. (And yeah, the 'nut' one was used against Monica and her Mother. It would have worked too if not for the famous blue dress.)

Hillary and Bill were more than happy to use the power of their office and status against a 19 year old girl and her mother by calling them both 'mentally ill'. Check your files Cathleen - it's there - Monica and mother called unstable... Bill was 'ministering' to Monica) All the while both Clintons knew they were lying. Both of them...

Hillary would trash the women her husband 'took'. She would shut them up. That has NOTHING to do with shifting gender roles - and you know that Cathleen Decker ...

That stuff goes waaaaay back before 'shifting gender roles'... It's the trashy way the powerful have treated powerless women from the dawn of time. Cathleen Decker - you're an idiot.

Maybe a 'useful' idiot for Hillery but you shame and degrade every honest woman...

And I think the bulk of her popularity lies with the belief Hillary will play hardass a lot more often and muscle through more of Obama's agenda.

So that little "bump" in the 80's with Reagan was what, chopped liver?

Hillary’s main agenda is to show that a woman can be a wartime President.

Ah me, October it is. WELL, that makes ALL the difference in the world, doesn't it? Well maybe in HillaryWorld. But, not in mine.

Don't YOU think that 67, when the election is, is a bit too old to START the campaign trail?
