Hillary Clinton wants off the ‘merry-go-round’

By: Jennifer Epstein July 15, 2011 07:30 AM EDT

She’s in good health from yoga and exercise, but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says she’s tired by the “merry-go-round” of public life and ready to get off it for good at the end of President Barack Obama’s first term.

“I think that I am a pretty normal, average person, despite all of the hype,” Clinton said in an interview with the BBC conducted Thursday. “And I am very interested in spending time with my friends and my family and not being on the merry-go-round all the time.”

That, she said, is why she plans to “move on and return to private life at the end of what will be a very intense period of activity and work in the next 18 months.”

Clinton has made similar comments in several interviews this year, but this time they were unprompted, coming in response to a question about what the general public might not know about her.

Clinton said she never wakes up too tired to go to work, but instead says to herself, “I’m tired so I better get up and get going.”

“Every day is fascinating to me because I really don’t know what’s going to happen during the day,” she said. “I am very aware of how much energy this takes because, clearly, it’s a nonstop marathon. But let me knock on wood here, I have been lucky with health, stamina, and all that goes with it.”

Friends, she said, call and email her saying, “’Oh, my gosh, I saw you on television. You looked so tired.’ Which I send back saying, ‘Gee, thanks a lot.’”

Nah, you’re not an average person. Average middle age women don’t have pretty young women spending the night with them. There will come a time when men from your SS detail from the POTUS days release what they observed about your day to day activities, they you’ll be better known as anything but average: aberrant yes, average no.

This is soooooo what I was thinking of posting the minute I read that line, too!

Really??? NORMAL / AVERAGE / PERSON /...these words have NOTHING to do with you, my dear.

It could be worse; at least they didn’t say, “...thanks to the advice of Moosechelle Obama.”

We’re supposed to believe she wants off the merry go round of public life? Yet this is the same woman who wanted to be president, which would have been a much bigger pressure cooker if she had succeeded and gotten elected.

Bill said that Hillary wants to be a grandmother more than she ever wanted to be president. Who knows, maybe Grandma Hillary will indeed be gone from public life.

I remember having conniptions just thinking about this woman and her dirtbag husband ever occupying the WH again.

And what happened? Not only did we get "just as bad" - we got "much worse."

Her satchell-ass is not exactly a model commercial to promote yoga and exercise. When she says certain words she connotes a meaning which is alien to the historical meaning of those wores.

Hillary Clinton will turn 64 this year and she may actually be looking to spend her remaining years enjoying her millions. Remember the 8 million dollar advance she received for her lame 2003 autobiography ('Living History')? Not to mention all the loot she and her felon husband managed to amass while in 'public service'. Although Hillary is definitely addicted to power and a good little Marxist to the core, we all slow down at some point and ambition wanes, especially when she already has the titles of Secretary of State and Senator on her resume. She can kid herself (and many others) that she is an accomplished woman without having any accomplishments except her titles that were the result of her ambition, and, most of all, the fact that she was married to a president. Hillary can do this while living in the kind of luxury she expects - and that her millions can purchase. On that basis, Hillary may be doing something extraordinary for a Clinton - telling the truth.

I simply do not believe a word that comes out of her mouth. She has been a user, an opportunist, and an enabler for her entire adult life. She did not get to where she is on her own. It was, of course, through Bill.

She twists the truth, and lies to get what she really wants. She tried to cover up her husband's behavior, and she lied until she was finally cornered. She ran for office in New York only to use the position as a stepping stone. She treats underlings with disrespect, and fancies herself more as a queen who must be served than a politician whose role is to serve.

Just like her other convenient and self-serving lies, this one is transparent, and laughable. Hillary loves being on the merry-go-round catching the ring at every rotation. She craves the attention, and she savors the power.

So, she thinks we are all naive enough to believe her when she says she wants to retire from the fast pace of public life. Will she then be baking those cookies?

Hind sight is 20-20 but I wish now that I had voted in the rat primary, not that my vote would have changed a thing but Hillary, bad as she is, would have been better that obama.

One of Hillary’s Secret Service monikers when she was First Thing was “The Flying Buttress”.

(An architectural term applied to medieval cathedrals)

BTW, I’ve lost any envy I might have had for the rich & powerful if they consist of hideous cows like this one.

I know it’s like choosing death by hanging or electrocution but are we happy that Obama’s PC election kept the Clintons from returning to the WH?

No comparison.

Obama has spent three years screwing up Hillary's machine. Would you rather have the person who actually made the machine as president, or the one who screws it up? She's the train, he's the paint job on it.

The still-to-be-told story is why the machine dumped it's maker, and replaced her with the boy-toy who was only supposed to be the token black male VP held in place by his birth fraud. Obama was never "supposed" to be president. Hillary was never "supposed" to be kicked to the curb.

But something happened on the way to the coronation... and the Rats are still shrieking in fear over it... LOL.
