    Carly Fiorina, CPAC 2015 [Photo Credit: Katie Frates, The Daily Caller] Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO and a potential GOP presidential candidate, said on Friday that she is not as wealthy as Hillary Clinton and that unlike the likely Democratic nominee, she drives a car, does her own laundry, goes grocery shopping and tips at Chipotle.Fiorina, who is in New Hampshire as part of the GOP Leadership Summit, shared details of her anti-Clintonian lifestyle in an interview on The Howie Carr Show.Asked whether she thinks Clinton’s campaign strategy of trying to repackage herself as an “everyday American” will prove...

    Dear Richard Meek, Here is today's Sixty Second Activist ACTION ITEM: ISSUE: Hillary Rodham Clinton has been trying for years to give government more control over children. Critics say the efforts undermine parental authority. Now, conservatives suspect Sen. Clinton may be hitching her political ambitions to still another "wagon." Citing her concern for the health needs of children amid the threat of bioterrorism, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., recently introduced legislation that would establish a new task force and preparations for an attack in which children are affected.[snip]ohn Paulton, of Focus on the Family, is suspicious of the New York...

    Joe McGinnis, a young writer who got access to the advertising agency with the Nixon account in 1968, changed the way we thought about electing presidents with his best-seller, "The Selling of the President." The very idea that a presidential candidate could be packaged like a tube of toothpaste, a can of shaving cream or a pack of cigarettes was shocking. Americans held elections as something close to a sacred trust, and the cover of the McGinnis book featured Richard Nixon's face on that pack of cigarettes, suggesting (this was before "Mad Men") that Madison Avenue would stoop even so...

    So far, of the declared candidates for president, the only one who voted for the Iraq War is the Democrat. I recently made that observation on Twitter and the response was instructive. I will refrain from reprinting the more piquant language from Hillary Clinton's supporters, but one common theme was that I am a fool. Sens. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio weren't in the Senate for the Iraq war vote, many shrieked. Well, exactly. In case you haven't been paying attention, you might be interested to know that the Iraq War was not popular, especially among Democrats. If...

    VIDEO: Students are ‘Ready for Hillary’ just because she’s a woman Hillary Clinton supporters at the University of Washington were asked why they supported the former Secretary of State. Answers ranged from “she’s a woman," to “because it’s time we have a female president." It seems many students at the University of Washington can’t think of any reason why they should vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — other than her gender. Campus Reform headed to Seattle, Wash., and asked several college students if they were “ready for Hillary” and why they would vote for her.

A lack of consistency on the issue contributed to her campaign’s downfall in 2008. “Hillary supports state policies to provide driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants,” a Clinton spokesperson told The Huffington Post. During her last presidential campaign, the former senator from New York was not so clear.In a 2007 Democratic presidential primary debate, the late Tim Russert asked Clinton if she supported then-New York Gov.

    Presidential candidates who can authentically can talk about their relationship to the American Immigrant Experience can sometimes experience a boost in public opinion, which is why Hillary Clinton recently spoke about how her grandparents — all of them — always talked to her about emigrating to America. A recent report indicates, however, that most of them weren’t exactly immigrants. According to Andrew Kaczynski, three of Clinton’s grandparents were not immigrants: Census data and draft cards from the 1920′s and 1930′s revealed that her paternal grandmother was born in Pennsylvania, and both of her maternal grandparents were born in Illinois. (That’s...

    Above all, this irony emerges: Clinton ran on the basis of managerial competence—on her capacity, as she liked to put it, to “do the job from Day One.” In fact, she never behaved like a chief executive, and her own staff proved to be her Achilles’ heel. What is clear from the internal documents is that Clinton’s loss derived not from any specific decision she made but rather from the preponderance of the many she did not make. Her hesitancy and habit of avoiding hard choices exacted a price that eventually sank her chances at the presidency. What follows is...

The article, titled “Woe of White Men, Again,” is poorly argued and nearly incomprehensible to anyone without a tremendous political bias.

And, unfortunately, that is saying something. Moreover, at least Barack Obama had the excuse of having been in public life for only a few years, as a state senator and then a two-year U.S. senator.

Here’s Campolo: Clinton also understands how Congress works — a needed skill since legislative gridlock has characterized Washington over the last several years. Amid dire problems, the last session of Congress proved to be one of the least productive of any in our nation’s history. It...

    WASHINGTON – To the surprise of, well, no one, former U.S. senator and secretary of State Hillary Clinton made it official this week – she intends to seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2016. That decision is not news. The real story is that some potential rivals are looking at the race despite facing overwhelming odds, giving new meaning in the view of some observers to the old Alexander Pope stanza “fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” Clinton, who has been on the national scene since her husband, former President Bill Clinton, captured the White House 23...

    According to a new Rasmussen poll, nearly six in 10 voters believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the next president. But perception is not reality, as an MSNBC poll seems to indicate.The poll, which appeared on the MSNBC website on Tuesday morning, shows that 86% of MSNBC readers who responded would not vote for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming presidential election. Only 13% responded in the affirmative and a mere 2% said “maybe.”The poll, while not scientific, strongly suggests that progressives do not prefer to have a baggage-laden career politician as their party’s standard bearer in 2016.

    You know the old saying: You can fly the candidate into Tuzla with her daughter under a hail of non-existent sniper fire, but you can’t take the Tuzla out of the candidate. Perhaps sensing that she needs a resumé enhancement, Hillary Clinton returned to fabulism on the campaign trail eight years after the Tuzla Dash, telling Iowans that all of her grandparents came to the US as immigrants. As BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski painstakingly details, she’s only 25% correct. Kaczynski picked up on this part of her stump speech about just plain folks working, emphasis mine: We are turning down...

    The early days of American political campaigns are always marked by a certain pantomime absurdity, but one could be forgiven nevertheless for wondering whether Hillary Clinton’s confused, staccato launch has been especially daffy. For an event that has been at least six years in the making, last Sunday’s confirmation was unusually schizophrenic and almost entirely inchoate. In the morning, we were told that Clinton would be demonstrating her tech savvy by announcing with a video and a tweet. Instead, we got an insipid e-mail from an aide. In the evening, we were informed that Clinton would be driving across the...

    Message: After nearly 25 years on the national political stage, she has discovered she cares deeply about the much-beleaguered American middle class. Reaction: Better late than never. To underscore her bourgeoisie bona fides, the Evita of Chappaqua embarked on a populist road trip from New York to Iowa, even stopping for some fast food at a Chipotle restaurant near Toledo to demonstrate she can rub great unwashed elbows with the best of ambitious politicians. Nothing says "Hail to the Chief" more than a burrito bowl. Still, Clinton better be careful during this Nighthawks diner phase of the campaign. The patrician...

    Hillary Clinton sounded like a woman on a mission after her long drive into the heartland: “There’s something wrong,” she told Iowans on Tuesday, when “hedge fund managers pay lower taxes than nurses or the truckers I saw on I-80 when I was driving here over the last two days.” But back in Manhattan, the hedge fund managers who’ve long been part of her political and fundraising networks aren’t sweating the putdown and aren’t worrying about their take-home pay just yet.

    Hillary Clinton has now made it official, declaring her candidacy in a youtube video and heading off on a “road trip” to Iowa (no, she’s not driving herself). And the media is all over the story. The tagline on her website: “Everyday Americans need a champion. I want to be that champion.” But, poking around that website, there’s no real content to it. No policy positions. No campaign promises. Just a bio, and a request for donations and volunteer help in the early-primary/caucus states. Now, it’s not hard to find all manner of stories on why HRC is exceptionally unqualified...
  • McCaskill For Hillary: "Varied & Strong" Resume, "What's Far Left Going To Do? Embrace Ted Cruz?"

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)SEN. CLAIRE McCASKILL (D-MO): Frankly, Darrell Issa is so over the top. He is like the lead drum major of the Hillary haters. And they're a legion out there. But let's get to the policies. And that's what the American people are going to do, Chris. They're going to look at these people, and they're going to decide who has the stable of a resume that is incredibly varied and strong? Who is confident? Who has gravitas on the world stage, and who cares about them in terms of the policies? This parade of characters they have, none of them...

    Hillary Clinton isn’t just caught in a political scandal over her missing emails from her stint as secretary of state – she’s also terrified of personal revelations about a secret lesbian lifestyle! Now a world-exclusive investigation by The National ENQUIRER reveals that some of the presidential candidate’s famously “deleted” emails are packed full of lesbian references and her lovers’ names. “I don’t think she’s so concerned about emails referring to her as secretly gay,” said a Clinton insider. “That’s been out for years – her real fear is that the names of some of her lovers would be made public!”...

    Hillary Clinton may not be much at administering the State Department, but she’s certainly a pro when it comes to expressing outrage at her own persecution. For the woman who is supposedly the world’s most powerful feminist, her sense of victimhood remains surprisingly strong. That’s never been more true than in her new book, Hard Choices, which points out that she – not the four men who died in Benghazi, Libya, on the night of September 11, 2012 – is the victim. The Clinton camp reportedly leaked the 34-page Benghazi chapter of Hillary’s latest tome to favored outlet Politico. The...

    Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents. The story of her grandmother specifically immigrating is one Clinton has told before. Clinton’s sole foreign-born grandparent, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated as a child. “Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton spokesman told BuzzFeed News. “As has been correctly pointed out, while her grandfather was an immigrant,...

    MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts and Joy Reid noted that Hillary Clinton had undergone a politically convenient evolution on same-sex marriage on Wednesday’s “MSNBC Live.” Roberts pointed out that Clinton’s statement that she hopes the Supreme Court will rule that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right is “a different line” than Hillary’s position in an interview she conducted with NPR last year, where she said, “for me, marriage had always been a matter left to the states…I fully endorse the efforts by activists who work state-by-state,” and that after leaving the Secretary of State’s office she was able to “very quickly announce...

    As recently as a year ago, Hillary Clinton was sparring with a public radio host about her position on same-sex marriage, defending her past reticence to discuss the issue and falling well short of full-throated support. Now, in a markedly new position, Clinton is offering just that, calling gay marriage a right afforded by the Constitution. "Hillary Clinton supports marriage equality and hopes the Supreme Court will come down on the side of same-sex couples being guaranteed that constitutional right," said Adrienne Elrod, a Clinton spokeswoman, in a statement. This is an entirely new position for Clinton.
