Hillary: She's the Man
Townhall.com ^ | August 12, 2013 | Katie Kieffer

Posted on 08/12/2013 6:35:04 AM PDT by Kaslin

Ah, Hillary Clinton. Let me count the ways she doth love to be feminine.

1. She will not bake cookies. She will put down other mothers who stay home and bake cookies.

Hillary once said: “I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.”

2. She will not wear a skirt. She will happily stand by her skirt-chaser.

The media drew comparisons between Hillary standing by Bill in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal and her aide of many years, Huma Abedin, standing by her husband, New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, in the wake of his sexting scandal. Hillary was reportedly very upset over these comparisons.

Who would not draw such comparisons? Hillary has referred to Huma as her “second daughter” and one can only imagine that Huma “learned from the best” by watching Hillary stand by, smiling, as her husband cheated on her both before (think the affair with Gennifer Flowers, which he confirmed in a 1998 deposition) and during his presidency.

Hillary and Huma are entitled to do as they please in their marriages, and it is better (and harder) to work on a marriage than to walk away from it. However, sources told the New York Post that the reason Hillary was upset over the comparison was because she (as First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State) and her husband (as President) have held much higher roles than Huma and Anthony, and this makes her decision different from Huma’s.

The reason to marry or stand by a man is not because you have political power to gain or lose by joining or staying with him. That is the message Hillary seems to be sending young women, and it is a very unhealthy message.

3. She will not support girls with guns. She would rather initiate a secret gun-running program to arm the Syrian rebels that can be traced to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012.

In her unpaid speeches and work for the Clinton Foundation, Clinton acts as though it is her life’s mission to help women and girls. But she might want to think about promoting women’s right to self-defense and the 2nd Amendment. As Secretary of State, she was incredibly irresponsible when it came to arming Syrian rebels linked to terror.

4. She will not take orders. She will give orders to deny aide to U.S. Ambassadors.

On August 16, 2012, U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens sent a cable notifying Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the State Department of an anticipated “coordinated attack” that the consulate would not be able to manage without backup support. Clinton’s State Department did not take proactive measures to respond.

This January, Clinton testified that: “I have made it very clear that the security cables did not come to my attention…” and “I didn’t see those requests. They didn’t come to me. I didn’t approve them. I didn’t deny them.”

But a 2013 congressional report showed that Clinton did indeed sign an April 2012 State Department cable acknowledging formal requests for help. So, she DID know of various cables requesting assistance in Libya. Reporter Sharyl Attkisson tweeted that while Clinton knew of these requests for aid, she “ordered the withdrawal of elements to proceed as planned.”

5. She will not focus on being a grandmother. She will run for president in 2016 at age 72 and keep treating taxpayers like a mother hen.

Yes, Reagan was an “old man” when he ran for office. There is absolutely nothing wrong with holding the presidency during your older, potentially wiser, years. That said, Hillary seems to have made more mistakes — fatal mistakes like those in Benghazi — as she has aged in public service. It would be risky to give her more power.

Do you remember when Bill Clinton said this back in January of 2011? “I would like to have a happy wife and she won’t be unless she’s a grandmother. It’s something she wants more than she wanted to be president.”

Or when Hillary said this to ABC’s Barbara Walters in 2012? "I've said I really don't believe that that’s something [run for president] I will do again."

Well, these days, Hillary is busy as a bee ostensibly preparing for a 2016 presidential run. The New York Times is reporting that she’s traveling the speaker’s circuit, giving speeches at $200,000 a pop. She is also working on another memoir that highlights her days as Secretary of State where there’s actually only one highlight, but it’s a state secret: Her incompetency in Benghazi. There is also a four-hour NBC mini series in the works (that she allegedly did not endorse). NBC is scurrying to release the series before Hillary makes an official campaign announcement in order to avoid the legal requirement of providing equal television treatment to all other candidates.

Even though Hillary and her husband made a big effort to pretend like she had no intention of running for president again, the Ready for Hillary super PAC has already raised over $1.25 million as of June. Ready for Hillary is producing all kinds of bling to pass out to future voters, including white buttons with an outline of Hillary’s smiling face above the words “READY.”

Not everyone in America is ready for Hillary. Some Americans are ready for a return to freedom, integrity and the Constitution.

It would be wonderful if we had an intelligent woman with integrity in the Oval Office someday. Hillary would not be a poor president because she is a woman. Hillary would be a poor president because her policies and philosophy hurt both men and women.

If hillary gets the nomination, someone younger with a "coolness" factor who can exploit her problems with Benghazi, droning, lack of standing up for things and age could win. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz (if he's eligible) seem promising. There will be others to come forward.

hillary at 72 is not a pleasant thought. I can't imagine her aging well, either philosophically or as a decision maker. I say that as an age-compatible woman observing signs in myself and my friends about how the aging process is going.

Keep in mind that when she runs it will be 16 years after hubby left the presidency. Younger voters will think of him as ancient history and her as hillary "what difference does it make" Clinton.

Recent voting patterns repudiate this statement. Young people are technologically savy but less able to understand the Constitution than their liberal grandparents.

She will be a year younger than Reagan was when she takes the oath of office. People truly believe in her.

That’s because she is America’s keel-heavy Flying Buttress!

Recent voting patters repudiate this statement

Younger voters are not falling for the RINO con game. That's a lot of the statistics. They'll repudiate yet again...if it's the likes of Jeb Bush, Chris Crhristie or some other globalist-elitist the puppet masters control.

You have to give the under-40 voters a reason to vote for someone different. Droning and the NSA give Rand Paul and some others the RNC hates a chance to piece together a coalition of constitutional conservatives and progressives. If they support stopping the invasion of the US, they'll have a majority.

Getting an award from the American Bar Association, I see.

Seems to me she was relieved of her law license years ago after that little Whitewater unpleasantness?

Yesterday’s guardians of professional ethics are just today’s groveling suck-ups.

“She will be a year younger than Reagan was when she takes the oath of office. People truly believe in her.”

She will not be a year younger, she will be the same age. 69. Her birthdate is Oct 26, 1947 which would make her 69 at election day.

Unfortunately, she is no Reagan. Not even close.

It is astounding that there is anyone on the Earth willing to listen to her, let alone pay even two cents for such torture.

Back in Jan 2008, Hillary was universally declared to be the Dem nominee.

Then some guy from Kenya by way of Chicago named Baraq Hussein snuk in and stole the kishka.

Personally I do think she'll be the nominee, crushing SlowJoe and Cuomo early on in the process. Her biggest challenge will be deciding between DeVal Patrick (aka Barak II) and Chris Christie (aka NJFatboy) as running mate.

Before Hillary! runs for President, I want to
see her medical and mental health records.
I believe her recent episodes have played hell
with her ability to function. Benghazi is only
one example.
