Posted on 06/08/2005 6:11:18 AM PDT by anniegetyourgun
Hillary Clinton is looming on the political horizon. She got her wish during the 2004 election cycle: John Kerry went down in flames. Now she is the phoenix that will rise from the liberal ashes. Her campaign for the presidency in 2008 has already begun.
Her time is now. A May Marist poll showed Sen. Hillary (D-N.Y.) with a gargantuan lead among probable Democratic primary candidates; she garnered 40 percent support among likely Democratic primary voters, while John Kerry ranked second with 18 percent. Meanwhile, a May USA Today/CNN/Gallup poll showed that for the first time, a majority of Americans were "likely" to vote for Hillary. Twenty-nine percent stated they were "very likely" to vote for the former First Lady, with 24 percent stating they were "somewhat likely."
No, that doesn't mean that Hillary is guaranteed the presidency in 2008 -- far from it. Chances are good that at least 54 percent of Americans would be "likely" to vote for John Edwards, John Kerry or any other well-known Democrat. Chances are good that at least 54 percent of Americans would support a well-known Republican. (Remember, those "somewhat likely" voters can swing either way.)
But in any case, Hillary currently has more political momentum than at any time during her political career. Back home in New York, Hillary remains a strong incumbent candidate, with well over 50 percent support. If she wins her 2006 Senate race, there is little doubt she will win the 2008 nomination, should she indeed run.
Hillary Clinton is an immensely dangerous politician. Despite recent attempts to modify her image, Hillary remains an unabashed liberal -- a radical on abortion, health care, the judiciary and the economy.
Hillary maintains a 100 percent favorability rating from the National Abortion Rights Action League. In her time in the Senate, she has voted against the Unborn Victims of Violence Act (which would place criminal penalties on those who kill a fetus in the performance of another crime) and the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act (which prevents a gruesome procedure wherein a fully-formed, ready-for-birth baby is murdered in the womb). She has remained as vague as possible on parental notification for minors' abortions.
Remember Hillary's socialistic health care plan from the early 1990s? She hasn't repudiated it. "You may remember I had a few ideas about health care. I've learned a few lessons since then. But I haven't given up on the goal," she said at the Democratic National Convention in 2000.
Hillary considers anyone outside of Ruth Bader Ginsburg unfit for the federal bench. She recently remarked that Judge Janice Rogers Brown, a federal D.C. circuit court of appeals nominee, "truly sees the world in 19th century terms." Nineteenth century terms like private property and rule of law are too outdated for the junior New York senator.
Hillary is a regulatory-minded, higher taxes, higher spending liberal. As I wrote back in April 2003, "The [Herbert] Hoover economic ideology of yesterday is almost identical to the Hillary economic ideology of today."
Don't be fooled by Hillary's public movement toward the political center. When she's among her friends, she's far less "moderate" than when she's quoted on the evening news. On June 6, Clinton spoke at a fundraiser held by "New York Women for Hillary." She launched into a prolonged tirade against the Bush administration, charging it with corruption, deceit and centralization of power. "There has never been an administration, I don't think in our history, more intent on consolidating and abusing power to further their own agenda I stay awake at night thinking about all the mistakes and the wrong direction and all the bad decisions being made in Washington," she complained. "It's very hard to stop people who have no shame about what they're doing. It's very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth."
Talk about no shame. This power-hungry senator would be a nobody had she not latched onto her presidential husband. This power-hungry senator would be a nobody had she not carpetbagged her way into New York. This power-hungry senator has done nothing of note in the United States Senate -- her fawning media coverage began before she even arrived in Washington, D.C. In fact, Hillary's single moment of glory in the Senate was her infamous floor shriek: "The president knew what?" as she held up a copy of the New York Post in the months following Sept. 11.
Hillary's right about one thing -- it is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth. Unfortunately for Hillary Clinton, the American people will learn (and remember) the truth about her.
"Her time is now."
If Mary Magdalene could be you-know-who's wife, then Hillary can be the Anti-Christ.
Stick that in your DaVinci Code and smoke it.
Small point, but I don't think this quote is accurate. The first 3 times I saw this quote, the word "think" did not appear -- the word was "believe". And it really struck me that Hillary would make a statement that openly said "I don't believe in our history".
I probably make too much of it, but I think her "mis-statements" and odd phrasings often reveal what she's really thinking.
Shining city on a hill? A light unto nations? Arsenal of democracy? Liberator of the oppressed? "I don't believe in our history".
Yep, she's an evil bitch!
Run Hillary Run!
She is the b*tch who will not rise, but will fall back into the depths where she has belonged since her indoctrination at Wellesley School for Needy Latent Lesbians.
She is a ruthless mental illness in action! She should have stayed with the handsome David Rupert, learned how to ski, and let the country survive!
We can only hope a majority of American voters can see the truth about the clintons. They are truly a danger to our country, as they are all about themselves. Look for a massive MSM, hollywood, academic, union effort to shove hillary clinton down America's throat. It cannot be stated too strongly that hillary clinton is a clear and present danger that must be thwarted.
I hope so too, fair. But you'll excuse me if I don't have such a rosy outlook on the American electorate and our election processes these days.
There goes Lady McBeth projecting again. I have a feeling we're in deep doo doo.
Right now Hillary and the Dems are having some success with a divide and conquer strategy. By continuing to demonize Bush, they seek to do likewise to others by association. Some of the spineless, lily livered, weak kneed RINOs are taking the bait. Somebody better grab the Republican Party by the balls, torque some people back into line and frame the debate or we will be saying President Hillwitch in three more years.
But you'll excuse me if I don't have such a rosy outlook on the American electorate and our election processes these days.>>>>>
This is scary, this monstrous sow has already shown that she can win more than one hundred percent of the registered vote in some areas.
I tend to be more of a, 'glass is half full' kind of guy, but you make a good point. I just can't believe that people cannot (or will not) see her for what she really is...it seems so darn obvious.
The Demoncrat cronies having burst the housing "bubble," and having speculated gasoline to over $3.00+ a gallon...
Hillery's, folks, IS IN!!!! Get used to it for eight years. Don't need no crystal ball, ladies and gentlemen...
While I'm deeply concerned, I will work with everything I've got to defeat this broad.
