  1. Why doesn't she already have her own thread? How come I just now noticed that? Anyway, whatever...

    House majority leader and presumed future Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy just handed Hillary a huge gift by admitting on Fox News yesterday that the purpose of the Benghazi investigation committee is political, which makes those four dead Americans nothing more than political pawns. This could even reduce his chances of becoming Speaker. Beginner's mistake.

    Haw, Haw!
    The interview was on Hannitys show.
    Looks like Faux news site took the video down though.

    I'm really not a fan of Hillary and this whole email scandal seals the deal for me - she's just kinda twirling her hair and saying, "oops, was I not supposed to do that?"

    playing dumb doesn't really suit her, and considering she most certainly isn't dumb it also makes you wonder exactly what she's trying to hide

    It's certain that without the political side of it, the Benghazi issue would likely have died out by now. Like so many murders in the US it would be forgotten unless it had strategic value to somebody. Which is why we still have George Zimmerman making the news. It's disgusting, but it's reality. I admit I would like to know why Americans were murdered in Libya that night. I'd like to know the murderers were properly tried and executed. But aside from that, unless there's something real behind the story that specifically indicts Hillary, I doubt we'll see any new answers.

    The Clintons have always had a body count around them, the son of Bill's secretary comes to mind (weird traffic accident). Seems like they had a couple of exhaust huffers in their entourage as well. It's been a long time. Personally, I think Hillary would make an adequate president. She's shrewd to the point of being ruthless and she doesn't kiss anyone's ass beneath her. I think she might actually solve many of our middle eastern issues by disconnecting us from the oil ties we no longer need. But that's another story. I will say though that I don't think it's Hillary's "turn" to be president and I don't think she "deserves" it in any way, even for being a woman. People should vote for such trivial features and should stick to the issues. The REAL issues, not just the wedge issues employed to befuddle the orthodox right.

    With Trump I see initial prosperity followed by massive layoffs and restructuring. Much like his casino business. Only now he'll be able to legally have people around the world whacked! I also see a military buildup with Trump and based on old fashioned ideas like aircraft carriers and tanks. With Hillary I see a smarter path with more drones. Bill was like that too, a protracted approach to military incursions. If Trump wins, be prepared to jump into the stock market for 3 years then get out for good!

  5. During the Iraq War, four fatalities would have been considered an extremely good day. Where is the anger and outrage at George W. Bush over that? Nowhere, because he isn't running for office.

  6. Well jump into the US and US dependant markets for three years, more like 18 months.....then jump ship, take everything out and stick it in the asian markets.

    Probably a little more accurate

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    Many of the top neocons from the Bush Administration have openly supported Hillary Clinton. Rupert Murdoch is also a known Hillary supporter.

    So up to this day nobody thought it was political? Everything in Washington is politics.

    And Hillary always says "All I can tell you" in interviews. It's one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. It tells you up front she's either omitting something or lying outright.

    Also I just read that Bill had himself a few rides on the Lolita Express.

    What the hell does that matter, he's not running for anything.

    Anything to sling shit, right?

    Doesn't matter if he's running. Guilt by association. That's one of the big ole traditions in the US.

    So, Hillarys guilty by association because her husband cheated on her almost 20 years ago?

    Thats some logic, dude :dizzy2:
  12. Only the people who consider Fox News to be a trustworthy source of information.
  13. TheGhost

    TheGhost Auuhhhhmm ...

    Not my logic. But don't tell me you don't know that when the real race starts the republicans will be looking for every last bit of ammunition to use against her.

    I didn't think you need to watch Fox for that. They needed a scapegoat and they needed to exploit the situation politically.

    I can't support Hillary. She's more of the same. We need a major redo. I thought we'd get it with Obama and I worked hard to help him get elected. Man, was I ever naïve. He blew all his political capital that first year trying to get Repugs to like him instead of taking on the big issues from a position of strength. He immediately started appointing big business cronies to key spots.

    I don't think I've ever been this disappointed in a politician because I was THAT big of a kool-aid drinker.

    Hillary has already appointed a Monsanto crony to her campaign staff.

    I'll write in Bernie if I have to but no way will I vote for Hillary or any of the Repugs.
  16. I wish there was a way to divide the job and give control of domestic policy to Bernie, while letting Hillary handle international affairs.

    If i could vote for USA i will give my vote to Hillary; she is the best qualified candidate, Former First Lady, former US Senator from New York, former Secretary of State. Many people feel tenderly for the Clinton years, and it is easy to see why, eight years of peace and of prosperity that were followed by 8 years of 2 recessions and 2 wars. Bill Clinton left office with the largest surplus budget in US history, and the first since the 1950s. Who wouldn't want to bring back such an administration, especially after the disastrous Bush years. I am not seeing a downside here to another Clinton Presidency. Let's hope Michelle Obama takes up politics in Illinois! Hillary Clinton is competent, highly intelligent, and well connected. She has all the skills necessary to be a great President, and as a plus point, her husband was one of the two best Presidents of the past 50 years. Her political views, which are somewhat left of center, are in the right place to protect and continue the economic growth of the Obama years and to oversee the dramatic evolution to self-sustenance and ruler stability that is occurring in the Middle East. Her policy for Muslims is also very good and trustworthy, specially after the Trumps statement about Muslims.
