The Jury Talks Back


Hillary Resignation Watch

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin M @ 8:02 am

President Obama bows to Saudi King.  President Obama pals around with Marxist dictator. President Obama apologizes for Hiroshima, for our “arrogance”, for his predecessor’s response to Islamic terror; for nearly everything imaginable.  America, he says repeatedly, is “at fault.”   Soon he will be calling us the “evil empire” like his buddies Chavez and Ortega.

And he hasn’t even gone to Cuba to meet Fidel yet.

The President cannot seem to tolerate our closest allies, like the British, and he wants to renegotiate NAFTA, annoying both our neighbors.  Germany and France are having buyer’s remorse, and a once-grateful Eastern Europe is left twisting in the wind.  China’s support of North Korea, Zimbabwe and Sudan goes uncriticized.  But he does manage to reach out to the Islamicists running Turkey, talk up his middle name with the Arab press and make overtures to Iran.  What must Israel think?

So.  How long can Hillary Clinton abide Barack Obama’s recklessness?  How long can she be an avatar for a policy so far afield from anyone’s prior positions?  Yes, it is for the President to set foreign policy, but Hillary increasingly associates herself with these radical breaks the longer she stays.  See Humphrey, Hubert (and especially Tom Lehrer’s take).

Then again, there’s party loyalty.

It must be hard, and you have to think she wishes she’d never got the job.  Neither stay nor quit looks promising.  Powell stuck it out to the end of the first term with much less disagreement.  Can Hillary last that long?


  1. Can Hillary last that long?

    I dunno. How much of a tingle does Obama send up her leg? Why, the heck, are you presuming that Hillary is a person of substance and character and not, for lack of the body for it, a pole-dancer?

  2. As nk so disturbingly points out, Hillary has no shame. She will stay in the job as long as she believes it benefits her career.

  3. Is it time yet to suggest that Secretary Clinton will volunteer to be the Obama Cabinet membr who stays away from the 2010 State of the Union Address ???

    The lady doesn’t strike me as having given up her relentless pursuit of the US Presidency …

    So – it would astonish me if our current Secretary of State was no longer Secretary of State at the start of the 2010 SOTU …

  4. Humphrey thought the same, and backed LBJ’s war like a good VP. When his turn finally came, Hubert had to defend the impossible and many Democrats stayed home. Hillary risks a similar fate, alienating her base in the party.

  5. as long as she believes it benefits her career.

    I’m taking it a bit farther than that. A woman worthy of the name would have cooked Bill’s balls for her breakfast and told the Magical Mau Mau to go suck an arugula after seeing this.

    This lady seems to me to be content to take whatever crumbs men throw her way. She is no leader.

  6. It seems there are no leaders in DC, period.
