Sebelius Said to Weigh Run for Kansas Senate Seat
New York Times ^ | April 16, 2014 | Jeremy W. Peters

Posted on 04/16/2014 6:03:26 AM PDT by Biggirl

WASHINGTON — In her darkest hour last fall, Kathleen Sebelius suffered one of the deepest cuts from an old family friend who accused her of “gross incompetence” over the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and demanded that she resign as secretary of health and human services. Now she is weighing revenge.

LOL. Never happen. She is the face of failure. In fact, what is more likely is that she’ll spend about as much time in Kansas as the Clintons do in Arkansas.

Liberals love government, they can’t get enough of it. Where else could you “work” with such incompetence and criminality and still make a 6 figure salary.

Because nothing qualifies you for the senate quite like abject failure, arrogance, and disdain for the “little people”.

I would agree...never will happen. But I kinda wonder....who tripped up the NY Times to give them the story...ever as bogus as it is. White House staffer? And for what purpose? To keep Republicans tripped up? Sebelius has no credibility to run anything. At best, she will end up at some foundation or as a professor for some ivy league school.

These people are not the danger. The people who would permit their kind to be elected pose a real threat to this nation.

Remember that these are the same people who with Chuck Hagle’s voting machine elected her governor. Maybe Big Sis wants to go back to Arizona, Too.

Become involved or become enslaved.

I hope she does. An opponent can use her as the punching bag for easily half of this administration’s legion of failures.

Besides, she loses either way on her campaign website, whether it goes up or doesn’t.

THIS WOULD BE SO FUN.

I’m not defending her at all but at least she failed (spectacularly) at attempting to do something. By contrast, most senators don’t have any track record of doing, creating or producing anything whatsoever.

But she would nonetheless feel comfortable being there, surrounded by likeminded political hacks and jackals.

IMO, I don’t think the Dems/Obama are going to want her running for public office, much less holding public office ..... she’s the “face” of Failure .... specifically Obamacare Failure and that is an affront to thin-skinned Obama himself. As a constant reminder of Obamacare Failure and big gov total ineptness, plus a purveyor of all of Obama’s lies (as more & more folks of the Left figure out he was lying & get very unhappy), she won’t get Dem support for a run.

Diebold. Yep. Here in Virginia they discarded the old Chad producing system and went with those new fangled electronic cards. I would bet that the electronic cards have been and will be used to throw elections. No more need to find missing ballot boxes; that is old school. They can manipulate the card system as they see fit.

Nope, she had a LOT of people fooled into thinking she WASN’T a socialist.

She ran for gov on a “I’m a nice Kansas gal” platform.

She had my parents fooled. And no way they would have voted for a ‘rat in general or a baby killing communist in particular.

“Why don’t these incompetent, evil people EVER just take their piles of taxpayer CASH and go the @#$% away!?!?”

I'm, not a shrink and I don't play one on TV, but I think several factors are involved: 1) they're addicted to the perks of office and power to boss people about with the club of government retribution always at hand; 2) these people are extremely arrogant; 3) they see themselves as an elite group that should rule over the dumb masses pf peasants.

I think those are the primary ones, but there are others. Incompetent, evil people are flawed human beings that have a real dislike for the average citizen. These people deserve to be put down like the rabid vermin they are.

“In fact, what is more likely is that she’ll spend about as much time in Kansas as the Clintons do in Arkansas.”

She’ll spend even less. At least Bubba is actually from Arkansas. Kathleen’s stay in Kansas has been purely for political purposes.

Her daddy was governor of Ohio....and she moved to Kansas when she was 26. By age 29, she was a lobbyist for the trial lawyers...and then she started running and getting elected to various offices.

Her first chance to leave the state - she jumped at the opportunity.

She isn’t from Kansas, and she isn’t here now. And she has done nothing but take from the state.

I doubt I’ll see her around often.

When Sebelius left Kansas the Democrats held the governors office, the lieutenant governor, the Attorney General, the Treasurer, and two congressional seats. Today they don’t hold a single statewide office or seat in Congress. It isn’t the same as when she left. If she comes back and runs she’ll get creamed by Roberts.
