Drudge has this below up with no link. But pay attention to the reporter's name:
NYT Plans Sunday Exclusive on Questionable Clinton Library donors... Reporter Don Van Natta... Developing...
He's a serious award-winning investigative journalist ... and co-author with Jeff Gerth of Her Way:
link: Prosecutors later came to believe that Hillary had padded her bills; she "wasn't guilty of [knowingly] facilitating nefarious transactions -- she was guilty of doing less work than she took credit for," Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta Jr. explain in their 2007 biography, Her Way. Hillary herself never took refuge in this explanation.
Somehow I'm thinking Hillary isn't pleased re Her Way:
Van Natta: "We also show that she has a sort of secret side to her Senate office. We call it the mysteries of Hillaryland in the book where she actually had people on, employees of hers, people on her payroll, who she did not divulge as she was supposed to, according to Senate rules, and we have ethics experts raising questions about that."
Gerth: "She is now running for president, and we felt that people needed to understand how, how she acts in the political arena and, and use that as a basis for deciding whether she is qualified to be president or not. And, you know, in essence, we sort of found that there are two Hillarys. In, in one case, there's the well-informed, the battle-tested, the diligent senator who does her homework. And then we found another Hillary. When it comes to a bump in the road -- whether it is on Iraq or on energy policy or on the environment, where she has a problem, that she plays fast and loose with the facts, she won't admit a mistake, and she sort of, you know, retreats into a shell."
Monica showing no mercy.
I disagree, I think many blacks that normally stay home just might come out to vote for Obama. Next to Edwards, Obama has the best chance of getting elected in my mind. In the end it is all going to come down to the republican nominee since the democratic field is such a joke.
“Well know Hillary is politically dead when Obama starts going through her pockets looking for loose change”
DEMZILLA is worth a whole lot more....
see post # 143
Really? Could we have some evidence of this?
Battle-tested? Battle-ax maybe, but battle-tested? What battles has she fought. I'm serious! Has she fought any? (BTW, ambushes are not battles IMHO.)
Homework? Could anyone really be impressed by someone who knows the answers to questions she planted a few hours earlier. I'm more impressed by an actress who can remember an entire script she has to perform, but that hardly qualifies the actress to be President of the United States. Hillary has to remember a few sound-bites. And anytime there's a glitch in her script, it's a schadenfreude moment for folks like me.
And of course how many third party votes get sucked off each side.
I think it is more than that. Hillary has been wounded very badly. The NYT might be going in for the kill because they worry that what will come out about her, now being held back by the GOP, will do great damage to the Dems.
Excellent post , .. ( as always )
I agree she won her first election with 55% of the vote and the second with 67%. She is not battle tested she is just running in a extremely liberal state.
[... DEMZILLA is worth a whole lot more...]
She’s worth what people are willing to pay.
Yet even our souls won’t satisfy the Hilda Beast.
Black women vote their weight, so to speak, relative to the general population, and I dont think Obama is going to get any more Black males (who are still elligible) to come out any than they do. And even if he does, it will be countered easily by the fence sitters who will never vote for a Black guy, but will never tell the pollsters that.
I guess we'll just have to disagree. Obama is a real lefty, and he cant keep that secret forever.
“Hillary must be dead, not MOSTLY dead.”
I think this might be from “The Princess Bride”. IIRC, Billy Crystal was able to revive the hero because he was only “mostly dead” instead of “all dead”.
Ok - I’m confused.
Although the Post story has an ominous headline, what is illegal about the donors?
Who you callin' kooky!
Sorry, your post had a mistake in it. I corrected it for you.
Crowley: “The blood is in the water and the piranhas are out in full force.”
How many times have see seen the Clintons skewered only to have their mouthpieces say, “Oh that’s old news.” There was nothing to that.
They raise their own people to offer up inoculations. And then those people turn right around and defend Hillary later on. This will be no different.
If this was truly a hit piece, it would have come out just weeks before the election. And I don’t mean the primaries. This is a late inoculation, and that’s it.
Barak Hussein Obama. While we are fighting a war against Islamic terrorists, this will not play well outside of the coasts.
He is an empty suit, long of speechifying, very short on policy specifics. In a debate with Romney or Rudy or Fred or Huckabee, he will look like what he is, a lightweight, an empty suit.
Scratch the surface and you will find a screaming liberal. Even Hillary is accusing him of being too far to the left.
Given these handicaps, I don't think the fact that he is black will matter to anyone.
I somewhat agree with what you say. Obama could energize people to vote for him just as easily as energizing them not to vote for him. In the end I hope people will judge him for what kind of man he is and that is a extreme liberal.
Pay off for providing an airforce for the jihadis in the Balkans?
Lots of people trace the decline of the MSM to the internet and talk-radio. I think it can more directly be traced to their shilling for the Clintons. There was effectively no internet when Vince Foster was murdered, and Rush was already talking to at least 15 million a week. For some such as myself it was transparently obvious that Foster was murdered, but the MSM said otherwise and I knew I had to look elsewhere for news. I still look at the MSM from time to time for sports scores. They always seem to get these right for some reason, but the only time I look at the front page of a major newspaper anymore is to laugh at it.
Maybe someone in charge of the bottom line has noticed.
Agreed. I hope the Republicans would be able to field someone who could beat Obama. I would worry about his foreign policy (he seems to think if he just reverses all of President Bush’s policies everyone in the rest of the world will love us), but he might bring us back from the extreme partisanship and vitriol that has been the norm since 1992—the Clintons’ idea of politics as war and “the politics of personal destruction” which the Democrats have continued as the opposition party since 2001. Of course there’s no guarantee he would do that—he may think the way to popularity is to denounce and defame Bush and the Republicans at every turn, but at least there’s a chance, whereas Hillary will be at least as malignant as in the first two terms.
Paying half attention to the news in the last week, I too noticed Breck Girl getting quite a few mentions. Was wondering if I was reading this accurately. Could be that the Kingmakers have run the numbers on the southern states and don't like what they see without Edwards on the ticket.
I have a friend like that, too. Lives in NYC, where she believes a "modified Bill of Rights" is in effect because the population is too dense for normal freedom. She's quite happy with that.
She also makes allusions to all the whackjob rantings on DU and daily kos, but says she has never visited those sites, and I believe her. I think there is a "trickle down" mechanism where the lunacy of those sites gets filtered, and then passed on to the "normal" party faithful. What one day is insane screeching on DU becomes accepted fact the next day by the "sane and sober" liberals.
My own opinion is the Slimes and Compost (thank you, Mark Levin) are published with an intended audience of a few thousand movers-and-shakers in mind. These are semi-important people inside the Beltway who don't merit a daily fax, email, or conference call from on high, but still need to know what the day's party line is.
I know a lot of people here want Clinton to win the nomination because she seems to be so beatable in the general election. I’m firmly in the other camp however, with those who want to see her gone as soon as possible.
I view it as having a dark celler infested with rats, along with a single poisonous snake. You could encourage the snake as it killed the rats one by one, and then go down to kill the snake after it had eliminated all the rats. But what happens if you trip, or make some other kind of mistake? Maybe the snake, as slow and stupid as it may be, ends up killing you after all. I say try to dispatch the snake at the very earliest opportunity, even if it leaves you with a rat problem that you have to solve later.
Why do I feel like we are witnessing the last days of Hitler, repeated all over again??
How many sycophants are going to go down with them, and will thier be enough Democrats left when the smoke clears to rebuild a new Democratic Party from the ashes of the Clinton Legacy??
Can you imagine the private conversation between the Clintons if the Commodities Scam Queen goes down to Obama? "You let a f------ n----- get the best of you! All our plans and you lose to a f------ n-----! Don't you go blaming this on the f------ Jews. You had it. I gave it to you. And you just blew it."
Reminds me of the line from the Princess Bride. "Mostly dead is still partly alive". Clinton Inc is like the monster in some horror flick, no matter how many times you kill them, they always come back.
Here is what is going one. New Democrat Primary, same old drama queen media's "horse race" template.
1st they puff up a front runner, then they manufacture some hype about the front runner "faltering" campaign, then when the "faltering campaign" wins one of the early primaries they start hyper ventilating about the "comeback kid" and their amazing come from behind victory. Then after building up momentum for the "comeback kid" they start beating up the challengers for not "getting out of a race they cannot win".
In the alternate universe of the NYT and its weird readers, things are never quite what they may seem. When Clinton first ran for Senator, the Slimes raked her over the coals unmercifully--then endorsed her.
Like Halle Berry when she won the Oscar as the first Black female to do so, her Mom was no where to be seen, likewise for Obama, is there a reason to be ashamed of your White parents?
His Mom is no longer around but I understand his matermal grandparents are.
Your “Horserace Template” is way more than MOSTLY dead on. LOL!
JO’S LITMUS FOR MEDIA TRUTH
1. If the Main Stream (Anti American ) Media (MSAAM) reports that the sun will come up tomorrow, I’m waiting for dawn before believing them. (Courtesy of FReeper CodeMasterPhilzar)
2. The next time you become outraged over a MSAAM headline, calm down. It probably isn’t true.
3. Whatever the MSAAM is backing, I’m backing away from it. A sound litmus for this age of deception and ignorance.
4. If the media promotes it, it is probably a lie and will eventually cost you either your life, your liberty or your sanity.
5. Don’t trust anyone over thirty ESPECIALLY if they are a liberal college professor or MSAAM journalist.
NOTE: This litmus may also be applied to many of the aged (and second generation), hippie left over drug stunted academic bourgoise lemming professors in our institutions of higher learning. Their mantra was “challenge the establishment”. Yet they have become the establishment and their narrow thinking is rarely challenged. Debate is healthy. Research and data from sources other than the circularly validating usual sources should be encouraged. Rather than punish, truth and observable data that contradicts their elitist agendae should be met with maturity and a willingness to “learn”.
NOT A CHRISTOPHOBE
NOT A MATRIX CONSERVATIVE
I think they will have to put a urinal on each of the Clintons’ future graves. If they charged admission they could probably do away with the income tax for a generation (until no one remembered the Clintons any more).
I'm not so sure that if Hitlery doesn't take the nomination that Edwards won't still take it. With Obama as the VEEP.
You have cojones... and Hillary has your address. Stay safe!!!
I may have quite a problem if she wins. So, she cannot be allowed to win.
I agree. I think that Edwards is sitting there in the background, not making enemies, and waiting to pick up the pieces.
Liberals and the NYT are for the dem candidate who will frighten conservatives the most. They’ve made their choice. They believe conservatives will be more scared of a black man than a white lady.
