Posted on 01/01/2011 8:10:24 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
On Fox News last night, Republican political operative extraordinaire Karl Rove discussed the possibility of Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016.
"I suspect she will be a candidate. I suspect she is going to think about being a candidate in 2016, and we'll know by about 2014. If she leaves the [Obama] Administration in 2014 or 2015, in order to give herself a chance to write a book about her experiences and reconnect with the grassroots, then she might entertain it."
And what would be the clue to Clinton's intentions if there is no Obama administration in 2014? Rove didn't address that scenario.
Rove is playing the odds.... most sitting presidents win reelection.
Yes, I know that the unelected Ford didn’t and the horrid Carter was defeated, and also GHWB lost his reelection bid.
Lincoln said you can’t beat somebody with nobody. Now the hapless GOP is in the position being unable to beat nobody with anybody!
The conservative element and the Repub party had better be focused on getting Obama OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE in 2012. They should quit their quibbling about this person or that person. They have a much bigger battle to fight in November of 2012 -— Obama must be defeated no matter what or who it takes.
Priority ONE! The anti-American Marxist effort must be stopped and crushed. Then the rebuilding can begin in earnest.
For the RINOs they would rather see another term for Obama rather than Palin winning.
But here's a nice picture of the National Trophy Winner in the Rose Parade today...

He is saying that is the ONLY way
Hillary will be a candidate.
NOT in 2012.
Truth is that he is right. Nobody wants to hear it, but the Republicans do not have a sure winner to promote. It will be tough.
I love that! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
I will post on the FReep-a-thon thread!
Rove's "top-secret" strategy fell into the hands of Soros and gave him incentive to donate more than $25 million to defeat GWB. The word "accidentally" seems to follow Rove.
April 06, 2005 - EDITOR'S NOTE: NR White House Correspondent Byron York's new book, The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy, details how MoveOn.org, George Soros, Michael Moore, 527 groups, Al Franken, and other Democratic activists built the biggest, richest, and best organized political movement in generations. The book reports that in 2003, as Democratic operatives were planning the campaign against President Bush, they obtained a copy of a top-secret Republican strategy plan authored by top White House political adviser Karl Rove. The following excerpt details how those operatives, as part of the effort to woo Soros and other multi-million dollar contributors, showed Soros the secret Rove plan during a crucial planning session at Soros's Hamptons estate. After the meeting, Soros became the biggest campaign donor in American history, giving more than $25 million to the effort to defeat George W. Bush.
Well, I’ll raise $2 million dollars for Governor Sarah Palin. I won’t lift a finger to help a Romney, Huckabee or Bush.
“For the RINOs they would rather see another term for Obama rather than Palin winning.”
BAM! BAM! BAM! as the hammer hits the nails on the head!
Rove is a consummate Washington DC elite, corrupt player, nothing more, and probably much less, if the truth be known.
He and his fellow travelers fear Palin, because she is not corruptible. They see her as shot in the night sky, that will flicker out over time as the relentless assault by the media continues!
I despise Rove, The Bushes, and all living RINOs who are out to subvert and destroy Conservative and the Constitution. They are my enemy as much as The Usurper and Communist Party USA are.
Rove is starting to STINK and so is Krauthammar..
What happens if we hit Nov. 2012 and unemployment has dropped to 8%? That’s improvement but is it enough?
Also, what events will transpire to raise or lower Obama’s approval rating between now and November 2012?
Ping me when you post it, I’ve got two more Reagan Float pics I can post there. :o)
Don't know, don't care. Rove is an unconscionable RINO who has been getting all kinds of undeserved credit for falling ass-backwards into two Bush victories. Bush won because Gore and Kerry act drunk and make Bush look articulate. Rove needs to go take a long walk down a short pier.
Rove the POS is on Prince Al Waleed’s Fox News spewing pro-Obama propaganda?
According to posts on FR - Megan Kelly is making fun of birthers. Yeah Fox is your friend. ALL TV is pro-Obama propaganda. I dumped Obama TV after he was elected. I saw how excited our “friends” at Fox were on election night for the muslim.
The republican Party will do everything within their power to ensure that obama is re-elected.
Hell! John Mc Cain did everything but take out an ad in the newspaper saying,”Vote for obama.” When he said that we had nothing to fear from an obama Presidency. History has shown that we had a hellofalot to fear from an obama Presidency.
Mitt, Jeb and Newt appear to be non-starters. Mitt has Romneycare. Newt has his pro-establishment antics. Jeb’s last name is “Bush.”
I have to agree with you. FOX has become Bi-Polar. Fair and balanced bi-polar schmoes.
...In 1978, Krauthammer quit medical practice to direct planning in psychiatric research for the Jimmy Carter administration, and began contributing to The New Republic magazine. During the presidential campaign of 1980, Krauthammer served as a speech writer to Vice President Walter Mondale....
...In January 1981, Krauthammer began his journalistic career, joining The New Republic as a writer and editor....
...on domestic issues, Krauthammer is a supporter of legalized abortion; an opponent of the death penalty; an intelligent design critic and an advocate for the scientific consensus on evolution, calling the religion-science controversy a “false conflict;” a supporter of embryonic stem cell research using embryos discarded by fertility clinics with restrictions in its applications; and a longtime advocate of radically higher energy taxes to induce conservation....
His speakers bureau bio:
I believe, as you do that she is incorruptible. Do you have any idea what her opinion of the NWO is. Bush and his father were strong proponents, as are all establishment Republicans.
Then we’ll have President Obama.
So 3 of the last six presidents lost re-election bids - 50%
If Barry runs again, which I don’t think he will, he would tip the balance to 4 out of 7 not winning a second term, IMHO.
I need to add that I don’t think ANY of those people you mention can win either.
As much as I disliked McCain, he would have been much better than what we have now. No matter who gets the nomination will be better than who we have now. If Sarah gets the nod, fine. If not, we will have to suffer with a RINO.
Still, a RINO is better than what we have now.
In my opinion many Republicans don’t want to rebuild the country. They only care about themselves and, to a lesser extent, their party. They care little about their country and nothing about conservatism. These guys are middle-aged or older and all they want is to be comfortable for their remaining years. This is the very definition of “ruling class,” and it’s why people are increasingly fed up with ALL politicians, not just the Marxists.
In my darker moments I sometimes wonder if there is any peaceful way this can be stopped. I pray that there, and I have great hope for the incoming Congress.
Rumors of her leaving the SoS position.
National Clinton Enquirer "outing" The One....
It's still Her Turn.
Barack Hussein Alinsky.
Hillary Rodham Alinsky.
How shall you choose, grasshopper?
If Palin wins, Tokyo Rove is out of a job. He’s afraid, very afraid.
Judging from FReeper awareness (5% at most) as to exactly what Agenda 21 and the NWO are all about, I won’t be confident until I hear her say that she has researched the issue and knows exactly how harmful they are to America.
Your darker moments are realism. The next two years are going to be a storm the likes of which we’ve never seen. Stock up on food.
All it takes is republicans running commercials of biden and o-hole blasting GWB’s 5% unemployment as ‘the worst ever’ and then showing their 4 year record of unemployment under them, with them running the clip of biden saying that 10% unemployment is the ‘new norm’.
imho one of the republican states which recently created supermajorities in its state houses to go along with a repbublican governor— is going to pass
a law mandating that every presidential candidate
must show a long form birth certificate.
That will cause Obama some problems.
Point taken - if Palin isn’t anti-NWO, then I would say no one in politics today are.
This ‘it can’t happen here’ attitude is bringing us down faster than I ever imagined. I don’t know if it’s because they are afraid to examine the truth or what but its hurting us.
Yes, and I think Palin is smart enough to run those commercials. RINO’s won’t because it’s not “gentlemanly” enough. -
>>is going to pass a law mandating that every presidential candidate must show a long form birth certificate.<<
The fact that it hasn’t been done yet is not a good indicator that it will be.
Obamao is well on his way to being a one term catastrophe. Republicans can beat him, if we don’t beat ourselves to death first.
McCain is the reason we have what we have now. He thought his friend across the aisle, BO, was just fine and refused to run against him. He saved his presidential campaign funds to run against the conservative in his Arizona senate race. He always finds plenty he doesn’t like about conservatives.
The RINOs are why we have the congressional troubles we have now. We lost congress because the RINOs never met an earmark or spending program they did not like. This past lame duck session proves what backstabbing traitors they are. No way I’ll ever consider a RINO for anything again.
Al Gore and John Kerry aren't exactly charismatic, stellar candidates.
Do not concur.
I held my nose and voted for
. . . I could just as well have written in Donald Duck.
My tagline remains:
We know Rove won’t go on the offensive against Obama’s campaign. Let’s face it why would Rove attack Obama? Obama’s not a conservative.
Reagan, despite the media’s best efforts, was recognized as a damned fine leader. That’s why he won a second term.
G.B. Sr was known for his “read my lips” promise. His base dumped him. He lost his second term.
Clinton was a charming rogue. That was enough for the independents.
For all his faults, GW was a leader. Thank God he beat Kerry for reelection. Imagine that traitor on 9/11!
Now, take a look at Obama. Even many on the left are furious with his behavior. If the Republicans can pull their collective head from their collective ass, and take the damned gloves off, and attack Obama like they’ve attacked the conservative candidates, they stand a very good chance at retaking the presidency.
Personally, I’d rather scrap the GOP and support a TEA Party candidate.
