Hillary: She’s Nice Enough And Now She Smells Enough

Filed under: General — Dana @ 4:09 pm

[guest post by Dana]

When asked about Hillary Clinton’s efforts to distance herself from him as she moves toward a possible run in 2016, President Obama commented that he believed the American people want “that new car smell” in their next president:

“They wanna drive somethin’ off the lot that — that doesn’t have as — as much mileage as me,” he told George Stephanopoulos on This Week.

Really? Obama is all of 53! But Hillary, on the other hand, is 67 years old. An old, smelly woman. A post-menopausal grandma who wears dowdy, matronly pantsuits. And smells. Hillary, the old failed Edsel trying one last time to sputter and chug her way to the White House while spewing copious amounts of exhaust and smelly pollutants. But voters don’t want old or smelly. Apparently they want a sharp, fresh smelling, leather-upholstered sports car that can traverse any highway and byway, or the halls of Congress, with speed and efficiency while looking sleek and stylish. Message sent and received: Hillary was once nice enough, and now she smells enough. Is the Great Orator unaware of his foot-in-mouth disease or did we long ago conclude his seemingly innocent linguistic jabs are actually made with shrewd calculated intent? Women of a certain age are wondering. And if Joe Biden – who is 72 years old – runs in 2016, will the president comment on his aging unsavory odor, too?

  1. Hello.

  2. I don’t think the stink emits from their are, rather their failed belief system rotting within.

  3. That was supposed to be “from their age”. Sorry.

  7. Although Warren is only a few years younger, but we haven’t been forced to watch the unfolding life and politics of Warren for decades as we have with Hillary.

  9. An old, smelly woman


    Yep. Liberalism stinks, stinks really bad. Like that of a typical homeless guy in a blue-blue, true-blue urban US area, perhaps San Francisco, New York City, Detroit, or LA’s notorious Skid Row.

  11. Musty pantsuits and dentures too
    Slow Joe you’re in her way
    There’s too much smoke, her past’s a joke
    at this point, does she really even matter?
    Ooooh that smell
    Can’t you smell that smell
    Ooooh that smell
    The smell of Bill surrounds her

    Fauxahontas is upon her
    Stuck a speedbump in her path
    She’s just another joke, energizin’ lefty folk
    One more worthless ne’r-do-well
    Ooooh that smell
    Can’t you smell that smell
    Ooooh that smell
    Slick Willie’s smell surrounds her

    Now they called her Queen Two-fer
    Can’t bake a cookie with her attitude
    She thinks the time’s right, her tomorrow
    But tomorrow might not be her’s at all… HELL NO!!!
    Ooooh that smell
    Can’t you smell that smell
    Ooooh that smell
    The smell of Bill surrounds her

    One big ol’ problem that confronts her
    Got Obama in her past
    He’s made folks mad, she acts all saucy
    she’ll pay the price when they don’t #BanBossy
    Ooooh that smell
    Can’t you smell that smell
    Ooooh that smell
    The smell of Bill surrounds her
    Ooooh that smell
    Can’t you smell that smell
    Ooooh that smell
    Slick Willie’s smell of death surrounds her

  12. here is the musics we will all enjoy soon

    his cd went to #1 in uk but I can’t find anything on amazon but a paltry lil 4-song ep

    but anyway he’s a thing so you should click so you are apprised

    happyfeet (831175)

  13. Do you know how totally awesome and even better -historic- it will be to have a woman who is also a redskin “native American” running for president?

    elissa (a7708b)

  14. Good choice for the song:

    “The smell of death surrounds you”.

    So apt to the long time communist marxist Hillary.

    She’s been death to the US since College.

    jakee308 (d409c2)

  15. Mr. Feets, it is links like that which make me glad that out of 4000 CDs I have, 3900 or so fall under the rubric of classical, and most of the rest jazz from the 50s/60s.

    kishnevi (3719b7)

  16. Dana, may I join you in those dings?

    Absolutely, kishnevi!

    Dana (8e74ce)

  17. BTW, can we have an over/under on how long it takes Hillary to throw Obama under the bus in public?

    kishnevi (294553)

  18. oh.

    i think he’s kinda different and interesting but the important thing is to know he’s a thing

    happyfeet (831175)

  19. The last I read, while at a social engagement Friday night, Hillary said that she believed Obama made an historic step with immigration. And that it was about the “people who serve us tonight, who prepared the food tonight.” Of course, that was before she knew he thought she was smelly.

    Dana (8e74ce)

  20. Gawd. Scratch and sniff campaign mailers.

    Steve57 (c4b0b3)

  21. The presidency should be a country for old men. The current incumbent demonstrates some of the pitfalls of someone of insufficient age. Our better presidents in recent decades have generally been over 60 when they took office.

    That having been said, seven of the ten Democratic candidates who’ve expressed interest in running are as we speak eligible for full Social Security. So is Fauxcahontas. Two of the three exceptions will be over 60 when the next set of Iowa caucuses is held. Is the President endorsing Martin O’Malley, who’s aspirant successor received a kiss-of-death campaign visit from BO?

    Art Deco (ee8de5)

  22. Oops. Fauxcahontas is eligible next year.

    Art Deco (ee8de5)

  23. she can’t get a clue, even if they handed it to her, this is the problem, its not her age, Martin O’Malley I recall, because as a young lad, he wrote a letter when the Solon dropped out of his presidential campaign

    narciso (ee1f88)

  24. This was a passive-aggressive micro-aggression

    JD (86a5eb)

  25. JD,
    Do you think maybe Mr. Obama is still holding a deep seeded grudge over some of the things Hil said about him during the 2008 primaries? He does have notoriously thin skin you know.

    elissa (a7708b)

  26. Elissa – Yes

    JD (86a5eb)

  27. You really have a way with words, Dana! I love the title of your post. And I love that you know your political junkie readers here will be right there with you from the get-go on the joke.

    elissa (a7708b)

  28. We’ll be up the junction if she’s elected…

    I never thought it would happen
    the Prez a gal named Rodham
    from grifter folk so common
    That night we ain’t forgotten
    wife of a man so rotten
    who beat one George H Dubya
    they said “you are First Lady”
    “Perhaps” she said. “I may be”

    They moved in to the White House
    The man would prove a big louse
    he hired one Dick Morris
    began to chase clitoris
    She spent her time on healthcare
    The People said don’t you dare
    They liked the stuff they had then
    they said not now we’ll say when

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  29. Man Colonel Haiku is on fire tonight!

    But you know those cattle future deals have a way of bringing the stockyard stink back to the shady characters involved.

  33. Butchering chickens gives off a scent that hillary would resemble.
    as well as Gary, Indiana. And decaying rats.

    mg (31009b)

  34. JEF was being too nice and guarded. Hillary should not be President. There is nothing that qualifies her for the job, and many things that disqualify her. The smell of old woman is overwhelmed by the smell of corruption. If the SCOAMF helps to keep her out of the White House it will be a credit in his tally of sins and virtues when he comes before the Great Wheel. It might help him be reincarnated as a dung beetle instead of a flatworm. Neither should Fauxahontas, for the same reasons. And, besides, we already have a woman President.

    nk (dbc370)

  35. Not sure if I ever saw a video of them before- 3 different people playing lead guitar at different times, one with a cigarette in his hand, no less.
    Musically I thought that was a great song,
    but I must say, not knowing any better,
    it sounded like a very anti-druggy song,
    but they don’t impress me as being anti-druggy,
    unless it was just that they thought alcohol and cigarettes were enough.

    Anyone care to speak to my naïveté and edumacate me?

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  36. There is nothing that qualifies her for the job, and many things that disqualify her.

    tap, tap, tap on the shoulder…
    umm, nk,
    There is nothing that qualifies her qualified him for the job, and many things that disqualify her disqualified him.

    Therein lies the rub, as it has been said…

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  37. heck, none of the three, should have gotten as close as the President’s exhibit at Disney,

    narciso (ee1f88)

  38. He was novel. A dark horse (no pun intended), like Carter and Clinton before him (Dukakis who?, too). That’s a big thing with the iPhone Democrats.

    nk (dbc370)

  39. ok, now about the song…
    or are you trying to help me avoid embarrassment?

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  40. Which song is that, MD?

    nk (dbc370)

  41. nk?????
    The linked one and my question at “8:15″

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  42. “That Smell” by Lynyrd Skynyrd? Of course it’s an anti-drug/anti-addiction song. (I’ve disabled Flash so I don’t even get the embed.) Cigarettes were fine with all my rehab counselors. Opinions differed on drugs other than the poison of choice — some thought heroin addicts could still drink alcohol, for example.

    nk (dbc370)

  43. MD,

    The refrain of the linked song, That Smell:

    Ooooh that smell
    Can’t you smell that smell
    Ooooh that smell
    The smell of death surrounds you

    It seemed fitting apropos of Obama’s not-so-subtle dig.

    ps per Wiki:

    “That Smell” is a song by the southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. Written by Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Allen Collins, it was released in 1977 on the album Street Survivors. At the time the song was written, the band had been drinking and doing many different drugs. Van Zant had said that he started drinking heavily to relieve the pressure of performing in front of large audiences.

    Dana (8e74ce)

  44. Music is evocative. What the artist intends has little or no bearing on what the audience understands.

    nk (dbc370)

  45. So it was sort of confessional, voicing the fact that what they were doing wasn’t such a good idea.

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  46. G’night.

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  47. 31. This is a warning to Hillary: fail to support me in my last two years and I’ll endorse someone else.

    That could be but by 2016 the SCOAMF’s endorsement may well be the kiss of death.

    Damn, that’s so unusual. A leftist being racist.

  56. Re; Obama saying Hillary has less mileage than him:

    Obama comes up with arguments for ideas he doesn’t think of himself, and that’s why he falls flat on his face * so many times.

    * Figuratively speaking, or, as Joe Biden would say, literally. Obama is not Gerald Ford.

    Sammy Finkelman (8f1991)

  57. It’s like the old saw about picking random names from the phone book to run the country.

    She literally has no applicable qualification, and a smelly dump truck load of disqualifiers.

    Voting for Mrs. Clinton is like picking from random an unlisted number.

    The last thing this country needs is another pocket dialed president.

  59. I don’t get this entire post. Obama’s comments seem innocuous to me.

    Georganne (e37667)

  60. They are innocuous – but they’re completely wrong!

    He said it was all right for her to distance herself from him. The american people would want somebody new – without as much mileage as him.

    Hillary Clinton is a fresh face?

    Sammy Finkelman (8f1991)

  61. She literally has no applicable qualification, and a smelly dump truck load of disqualifiers.

    You’ll recall that there have been eight competitive Democratic presidential candidates in the last 15 years and two other men who were appended to the ticket as vice presidential nominees. The preparation of seven of these was as follows:

    1 newspaper reporter
    1 professional athlete
    1 dilettante lawyer
    2 common-and-garden lawyers
    2 lawyers with a lucrative (but skeezy) practice

    Of these seven, not one had ever held an executive position at the time they ran; three have since, of course, but watching Hildebeeste and Lurch in the Secretary of State’s chair has not been an edifying exercise, and about the President, nothing need be said. Of the other four, 1 or 2 were capable policy wonks, but one of these two has for more than twenty years manifested escalating moral corruption as he grew older.

    Of the remaining three, Joseph Lieberman is notable for having practiced law for 15 years without his ethics being called into question and for having a position in the profession that it was something of a sacrifice to abandon for political office; he’d also superintended a public agency. You recall how salable he turned out to be with the Democratic Party’s committed electorate.

    Which leaves us with Howard Dean and Wesley Clark as the cream Democrats. It’s amusing that Dr. Dean has thought it useful for career maintenance to play a raving buffoon. Yeeeeargh.

  62. stop Hillary now

    Colonel Haiku (2184e5)

  63. Chuck Hagel is resigning?

    Then he really is like Harry S Truman’s 1949-50 Secretary of Defense, Louis A Johnson.

    Weekly Standard Jan 28, 2013, Vol. 18, No. 19 :

    Would Chuck Hagel be the second coming of Louis Johnson?

    This means that President Obama is reversing his decision to cut the military and/or get out of Afghanistan – or does this mean he plans to attack Iran?

    New York Times story:

    he president, who is expected to announce Mr. Hagel’s resignation in a Rose Garden appearance on Monday, made the decision to ask his defense secretary…to step down last Friday after a series of meetings over the past two weeks, senior administration officials said.

    The officials described Mr. Obama’s decision to remove Mr. Hagel, 68, as a recognition that the threat from the Islamic State would require a different kind of skills than those that Mr. Hagel was brought on to employ.

    Just like the Korean War was responsible for the resignation of Louis A Johnson.

  65. He’s setting up Elizabeth Warren. Catch a clue.

    I’m having a vision. Eli(Walter Mondale)Warren manages to carry Massachusetts (barely), but still only scores 6 out of 10 electoral votes due to Mass new proportional voter act. The rest of the states votes (and 4 from Mass) going to Republican X.

  66. There couldn’t be more insincere person than Hillary Clinton. Everything she says has an ulterior motive. Sometimes, if you know the right information, you know what it is.

  67. 68. Washington D.C. too, doesn’t get carried by the Democrat?,_D.C._mayoral_election,_2014

    Candidate Muriel Bowser David Catania Carol Schwartz

    Party Democratic Independent Independent

    Popular vote 80,824 52,890 10,616

    Percentage 54.53% 35.68% 7.16%

    The other two candidates were independents. There is no Republican Party, of course.

    Sammy Finkelman (8f1991)

  68. Sammy you know that part about Taxachusetts proportional voter act? I totally made that up.

    Have no idea if Mass has one of those new perverted ways to game the electoral college.

    Repeal the 23rd amendment!!! < —- personal campaign slogan

    papertiger (c2d6da)

  69. 71 re: Taxachusetts proportional voter act.

    That was very strange to me and I didn’t comment on it, but I suppose you were imagining that Massachusetts would pass such a law (you did say you had a vision)

    Only Maine (4) and Nebraska (5) have passed law dividing the Electoral vote. The idea of Massachusetts doing so was very unlikely).

    The only split electoral vote in recent years not from faithless electors was Nebraska in 2008, which gave one electoral vote to Obama because of Omaha.

    Sammy Finkelman (8f1991)

  70. Instapundit is right, she smells like gin and Ben Gay.

    Evi L. Bloggerlady (5a49c0)

  71. Important correction:

    A reading of an article in yesterday’s New York Daily News, and a close reading of the transcript of the interview of President Obama on ‘This Week’ reveals that when Barack Obama was talking about a “new car smell” he was not talking about Hillary Clinton, but “other candidates” although he was actually not very clear about that because he was talking about two different things at the same time.

    OBAMA: … Number three– I think– she– and– and a number of other– possible Democratic candidates, would be terrific presidents–

    STEPHANOPOULOS: A number of other?

    OBAMA: And I am very interested in making sure that– I’ve got a Democratic successor. So I’m gonna do everything I can, obviously, to make sure that– whoever the nominee is is successful. If she decides to run, I think she will be a formidable candidate and I think she’d be a great president.

    OBAMA: And she’s not gonna agree with me on– on everything. And, you know, one of the benefits of– running for president is you can stake out your own positions. You’re– and– and have– a clean slate. A fresh start. You know, when you’ve been president for six years you– you know, you’ve got some dings and– (CHUCKLE) you know and– and–

    STEPHANOPOULOS: And you don’t mind absorbing a few more if that’s–

    OBAMA: No.

    STEPHANOPOULOS: –what it takes?

    OBAMA: You know, I think– I think the American people, you know, they’re gonna want– you know, that new car smell. (LAUGHTER) You know, their own– they– they wanna drive somethin’ off the lot that– that doesn’t have as– as much mileage as me.

    He thinks the american people probably wouldn’t want Hillary Clinton, so he’s not putting all his chips on her.

    Sammy Finkelman (8f1991)

  72. The fresh start also may refer to other possible Democratic candidates for President

    It was Stephanopolous who was focusing so much on Hillary Clinton.

    Sammy Finkelman (8f1991)

  73. does Hillary even know how to drive a car?

    i bet she couldn’t even figure out how to start a prius

    stupid smelly old lady
