  • Hillary: Making $100 million is not being “truly well off,” you know

    One might have thought that Hillary Clinton would have learned a lesson about minimizing her personal wealth after her “dead broke” comment to Diane Sawyer in the first interview on her Hard Choices book tour. Her team tried to walk back those comments the next day, but to no avail. Political analysts blasted Hillary for being “tone deaf” during the interview, and that was before news broke that the Clintons like to exploit estate-tax loopholes they claim to oppose.Hillary took her road show overseas, but still is making the same condescending mistakes in her quest to be seen as...

    US Envoy Caroline Kennedy Meets Japan's Emperor TOKYO November 19, 2013 New U.S. Ambassador Caroline Kennedy traveled by horse-drawn carriage into the Imperial Palace to present her credentials to Japan's emperor on Tuesday, giving the public a rare look at a diplomatic tradition. Thousands of onlookers lined the avenues near the moat-ringed palace to snap pictures and wave as Kennedy, the 55-year-old daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy, waved back from inside the carriage.

    Caroline Kennedy tonight withdrew her name from consideration to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate after learning that Gov. David Paterson wasn't going to choose her, The Post has learned. Kennedy's decision removes the highest-profile name in the ring to step into Clinton's now-vacant seat, as she departs after getting confirmed today as President Obama's Secretary of State. Sources said the reason Paterson had decided not to tap the daughter of John F. Kennedy was her poor performances in media interviews and in in private sessions with various officials.

    I don’t know what to say, except that I never really thought it would happen. Surely someone or something would intervene — a power play by Andrew Cuomo, maybe, or a crescendo of popular sentiment against an obviously unqualified pick — to blast through the nexus of money, influence, and backscratching that’s pushed this dial tone to the brink. As cynical as we all are about politics, we’re not so cynical that we seriously believe the governor of New York’s going to appoint Caroline Kennedy to the Senate. But I guess we should be. Despite claims that he’s still undecided,...

    Dwat those wascally Democrats! It appears as though they've done it again! In a clever flanking move in Pennsylvania, American Political Idol contestant Kendra Wilkinson has gotten "engaged" to a Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver. Once the two are "married", the door is wide open for a US Senate run for Ms. Wilkinson in 2010 against Republican incumbent Arlen Specter. Like, you know - this is a TOTALLY brilliant move - you know. Once the American Political Idol entrant from Chez Kennedy wraps up the currently open Senator seat from the great state of New York, the two potential gal pals...

    (Washington, D.C. - 1/3/09) Democrats across the board, including progressives on the far left, who are ardent supporters of Caroline Kennedy, are growing impatient with Republicans and others who are concerned about her apparent lack of qualifications for a likely U.S. Senatorial appointment. In a specious statement from the DNC, tolerance and understanding of this appointment are required: “We firmly believe Caroline “You Know” Kennedy is the absolutely best choice that could be made for the people of New York, the U.S. Senate and for the people of America. All of America should now be pleased there is a voice...

    Pressure mounts over replacement for Clinton By Harvey Morris in New York Published: January 2 2009 19:45 | Last updated: January 2 2009 19:45 Facing one of the most nail-biting choices since the presidential election, David Paterson, the New York governor, has been told he would be guilty of “political malpractice” if he named anyone other than Caroline Kennedy as the state’s new junior representative in the Senate. Mr Paterson, under intense pressure from some of the country’s most powerful political dynasties as he ponders his decision, has sole discretion to appoint a replacement for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who...

    In fairness before I go on, I have asked Governor Paterson to select me as the next senator from NY. During her weekend barrage of interviews, Caroline Kennedy proved that she does not know how to handle the press, nor does she have a firm grasp of the issues. I don't mean to disparage someone who went to Harvard (because of family connections) or wrote two books (via a ghost writer) but there is something strange about having a US Senator that says YOU KNOW 142 times during an interview. Shouldn't a Senator have command of the English language?

    Caroline Kennedy, you know, might need, you know, a speech coach, um, if she, you know, wants, um, to be a senator. Um, you know? Kennedy, who gave a flurry of media interviews on Friday and Saturday, revealed some cringing verbal tics that showed her inexperience as a speaker, experts told the Daily News. In a 30-minute session with The News on Saturday, Kennedy punctuated her answers with "you know" more than 200 times. "Um" was fairly constant, too.

    When she first made it known that she wanted to be appointed to take over Mrs Clinton's seat, Miss Kennedy, 51, the daughter of the assassinated President John F. Kennedy, seemed a near certainty for the job. But in the course of a few weeks she has alienated Governor David Paterson of New York, who has the sole power to make the appointment, and the American press, including the elite New York Times, which is a powerful influence on Democratic officials. During an interview with the paper she stumbled badly, fuelling comparisons to Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, whose bid...

    Election '08: Shrewdness and audacity have been political trademarks of both Clintons, but now Hillary has certainly overextended herself by trying to remedy an obvious deception with an even bigger untruth. Trailing Barack Obama in delegates, and faced with the mathematical impossibility of pulling ahead of him in the handful of contests left, Sen. Clinton is in dire need of some kind of meltdown in which Obama would collapse in the polls against presumptive GOP nominee John McCain. Instead, her worse nightmare has materialized. Last week, she was caught fabricating what took place as she arrived in Bosnia as first...
  • Clinton: I 'Misspoke' on Bosnia Trip Recollection

    When Clinton was challenged by a reporter that this revised account calls into question her foreign policy credentials, Clinton said, "No, I went to 80 countries, you know. I gave contemporaneous accounts, I wrote about a lot of this in my book. You know, I think that, a minor blip, you know, if I said something that, you know, I say a lot of things -- millions of words a day -- so, if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement." Today, she said that she "had to meet this 8-year-old girl," so, "I took her stuff and left."

    Apparently Randi Rhodes suffered worse head injuries than originally thought when she was ASSAULTED last week by 14 Bloody Marys. Air America is the main Leftwing radio network (which means it is tottering on the verge of collapse) and Randi Rhodes is their primary host. So what does it say about the left when their primary representative on the radio sounds like a flat out Moonbat with her theory that the wildfires in Southern California were started by Blackwater. Read her ranting below and for verification check out the audio above. Hey, Randi, maybe it you really weren't attacked...

    CLINTON: We ... got up really early the next morning, got on a C-130, flew out of Kuwait to Baghdad. Unfortunately the weather was bad and so we were told we might have to divert and. [...] Our response was, let's try get into Baghdad because obviously we didn't want to lose any time on the ground. Well, so we circled over Baghdad for about 90 minutes and we had a great crew. When you fly into a war zone like Baghdad, and I've done it numerous times now, there and elsewhere, you know, the C-130 does a kind of...
