The Envoy via Yahoo ^ | 2012-01-26 | Laura Rozen

Posted on 01/26/2012 12:59:16 PM PST by justlurking

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told State Department employees Thursday that she will not stay on in the job if President Obama wins re-election, saying that she is ready to step off "the high wire of American politics," according to the AP.

A State Department official confirmed Clinton's comment, writing to Yahoo News: "Yes, she did [say that]. She said she would stay on until Obama nominates another Secretary of State."

October 12, 2011 "...it was reported that the State Department and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were deeply involved in the scandal known as - Operation Fast and Furious, - or Project Gunwalker. - Today, however, new evidence has surfaced indicating that not only was Hillary deeply involved in the scandal but was one of the masterminds behind it.

According to investigative citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh, sources close to the development of the Gunwalker scheme state that early on, Hillary and her trusted associated at State, Andrew J. Shapiro, devised at least part of the framework of what would later become Operation Fast and Furious. It was Shapiro who first described the details of the proposed scheme early in 2009 just after the Obama Administration took office.

Naaaaaaaaa..........she snuck into some poor ole Grandma’s house in the middle of the night, stealthily looking around, and nabbed the first end table’s doily.

Leaving Grandma to wonder...”Now what did that stupid geezer of a husband do last night?”.

I guess this is the reason she is “tired.” Too much planning and scheming - and now she just wants to fade into the woodwork so we’ll all just forget about her. hahaha!

We’ll just have to make sure that the decision for the next Sec. of State isn’t Obama’s to make.

Hillary is giving up the office of Secretary of State to follow her long-held dream - to become Amish.

Hillary is wearing a fryer basket on her head. She can fry dinner on her head during those weeks when she simply can't find time to wash her hair.

I'm more amazed by Hillary's spike heel boots. It is an engineering marvel that those slender heels can support her girth.

An oldie but goodie:


Hillary digs for gold

Her and that deviant husband of hers will NOT go quietly into the sunset though I wish to God they would. They crave the limelight and will do whatever it takes to stay in it. They’re both lying frauds!

Thanks, Maggie for the ping.  

From the Washington Post: Hillary Clinton wore a headband Tuesday night at the State of the Union address: Was this some kind of signal that she’s headed to a presidential ticket near you? Stop the tresses: Hillary’s headband is back!

Not a dime’s worth of difference between Barry & Hillary. Both Saul Alinsky schooled radical leftists. Same ideology, different style.

Why? ObaMao doesn’t need a Constitutional process—he just plucks ‘em right in there without being worried abut a nomination process.

Good point.

“We’d have been better off with Hillary.”
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

You may be right but that is why I never got very excited over the idea of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman running. The women are the majority of voters and they favor the socialists. They didn’t vote for Hillary so why would anyone believe they would vote for a conservative Republican woman?

A very unhappy woman. She really has and has had “nothing”....nothing that counts.

&&&
That’s only if you view her life through the lens that we bitter, clinger peons use. For us, it’s about family, faith, and patriotism.

For dictators, it’s about grabbing power and controlling the destiny of others. It feeds their egoism.

If you look at her life, she has really accomplished a lot in line with her goals. She has followed Alinsky’s rules, and she and her comrades have brought about a huge amount of social decay and not financial ruin.

Soros and I declare her quite successful, I’m sorry to say.

We’d have been better off with Hillary.

You really believe that? They both take their marching orders from Soros. Perhaps she would have been more successful at making us think we were better off.

I know what’s on her head. While they were on the trip to Havel’s funeral, Hitlery discovered a woman’s thong underwear in Bill’s pocket, but he convinced her that it was lovely new head gear that he bought for her.

That is why he is smirking so much in the photos.
