Skip to comments.DeLay: 'Hillary Will Be the Next President'
Posted on 12/12/2006 1:03:56 PM PST by Quilla
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said today that Sen. Hillary Clinton (D.-N.Y.) would be elected president in 2008 and would probably tap Senate colleague Barack Obama (D.-Ill.) as her running mate.
DeLay met with conservative bloggers at a weekly lunch meeting hosted by HUMAN EVENTS and the Heritage Foundation. He is making the rounds in Washington to promote his new blog and activism website, TomDeLay.com.
DeLay said he was motivated to start the blog and create the Grassroots Action and Information Network after observing the success of liberal organizations such as MoveOn.org, the Media Fund and Americans Coming Together. He said he hopes to utilize some of the same tools to help Republicans win elections.
Its this liberal coalition, working in concert with the news media, that will propel Clinton to the White House in 2008, DeLay said. Hillary will be the next president of the United States because they have built a coalition, he said.
DeLay also implored conservatives to start digging into Obamas past. He said Obamas record in the Illinois Senate was on par with a Marxist leftist. Citing defeated U.S. Senate candidate Harold Ford of Tennessee, DeLay said Obama was attempting to disguise his liberal views. (Read Amanda Carpenters report on Obama and his conflicting rhetoric.)
DeLay named Clinton loyalists Harold Ickes, Sidney Blumenthal, James Carville, Paul Begala and Joe Lockhart as the masterminds behind the left-wing coalition. He said that these groups, more than anything else, contributed to the GOPs fall this November. I have never seen a more powerful coalition, he said.
One such example of the coalitions power played out precisely as planned in Californias 11th District. Republican Rep. Richard Pombo was toppled after facing an onslaught of attacks from the left.
DeLay said his goal in creating the new organization is to turn ideas into action. He said he will reach out to the diverse coalition of conservative groups and bring them together to rival the coalition built by liberals. Prior to the 1994 Republican takeover of Congress, DeLay said he employed a similar strategy that the GOP has gradually abandoned.
One day after launching the new website, DeLay said hes had 100 people pay the $52 per year to join the Grassroots Action and Information Network.
Did he predict whether he would be in prison during her term?
I think Delay has been huffing the insecticide again...
*****Loony Left Projecting Ping*****
Love your optimism, Congressman.
Bad news but likely. Also, the explanation cannot be easily refuted. Their problem will not be getting elected but governing.
If she is, I may have to take early retirement and move to my retirement home in the Philippines for 8 years............. or more.
He also said Republicans would hold on to the house and senate.
Jeeze Remind us never to put him as a speaker at the Republican Convention! It will be the Republican Depression instead!
No she won't.In fact,after having studied the lives and careers of Huey Long and RFK she'll decide not to run.
Yeah, thanks for the pick me up, Tom.
The gun's at my head now, should I pull the trigger, or do you want to finish me off?
(no worries...I'm not actually suicidal)
Shall I purchase my home in Banff, Alberta now?
"working in concert with the news media"
Hell, she doesnt even need to pay for advertisement when the "news" is willing to do it for FREE!
(1) Delay doesn't know what he's talking about.
(2) The American people, by electing Shrillary in 2008, will get the socialist utopia they would richly deserve.
I haven't liked all this buzz about Hillary ever since it started. I thought the less ever said about her the better. All this continual talk about her has just about got her elected without having to run.
That being said....I'm afraid it's going to work...all too well. What a horrifying thought.
Well, you notice the acronym for his project is GAIN. :)
