Run Away, Run Away!!

That's my advice to Senator Clinton, the THIRD candidate for Secretary of State in the Obama regime, or at least she was until yesterday. Now, it is down to her or Gov. Bill Richardson. Can I just say, from the outset, that to have it come down to her, the best presidential candidate we have had in DECADES, and that assholic Judas Iscariot, is insulting in and of itself. I mean, REALLY. He is a SEXIST pig, so he would definitely fit right into an Obama presidency, but he is also a BACKSTABBING sexist pig, having stabbed his "good friend" Hillary numerous times. What the hell is the matter with Obama? Can he just not STOP himself from being mean-spirited, petty, sexist, and cruel, while trying to make it look like he's a good guy? I know, no. He can't. He has demonstrated that time and time again.

By the way, while the Obama supporters are no doubt saying, "See? He's great offering this to HER," they miss the point. His word cannot be taken at face value. That is, he's a LIAR. His attacks on Hillary fueled a misogynistic rage in the US the likes of which I have never seen in my fifty years on this planet. Meanwhile, his smearing of her was joined in GLEEFULLY by his supporters, who bought every lie and smear against her he threw out there - are they not seeing the conundrum this presents for THEM?? How can they hate her so much and keep demeaning and belittling her if The One makes her the Secretary of State? Uh, yeah.

If he does offer it to her, I hope she says no. Hell no. Hell TO the no. Not that I don't think she would be BRILLIANT at it, of course she would. She has the experience, the ability, and the personality to be an outstanding Secretary of State, and if this was John McCain asking her, I'd say she should go for it. The difference? McCain RESPECTS her, and has always TREATED her with respect. He would value her input, and would trust her to do the heavy lifting without micromanaging.

Obama, on the other hand, has not shown her the respect she deserves, and since all cabinet members serve at the pleasure of the president, there is absolutely NOTHING to guarantee that he wouldn't fire her at the least provocation. So, there's that little piece. How do I say this? He doesn't deserve to have her in his cabinet after the way he and the ONC stole the nomination from her and US in the first place. Makes me nuts.

And then there is this. I had just been wondering the other day what in the world Obama was going to do now that he can't borrow off the smart kid's work any longer like he did all during the Primary and the Election seasons. I mean, really, what was he going to do for policies once he slithers his way into the White House? Lo and behold, SOMEHOW the news leaks out he is considering Hillary Clinton for the Secretary of State. Call me cynical, but I don't think it's because of his great care and concern for the country. I think it is to use her to create his work for him (again), have someone to blame if things don't go well, and take the credit for things that go well. But that's just my opinion...

Senator Clinton can do great work in the Senate, assuming she can get past The Old Boys Club, who seemed determined to mess with her. She is a leader, though, and her constituents are counting on her. WE'RE counting on her. Senator Clinton will do what she thinks is best for her, and the country. At least THIS time, we won't have to go through 18 months of her being dragged through the mud to to find out how this will be resolved. Either way, though it might be a hard pill to swallow...

I think she'd make a super SoS and Barry would be a fool not to offer it to her. Of course, if he does offer it and she declines, we'll never know.

I think her time in the Senate, if she stays there will be ruled by the archaic seniority rules and she'll never get a major chairmanship. After all, she didn't start in the Senate when she was in her 30's (ala Biden).

Any hoo, I'd like to see her get it for one reason: I'd like to see Kerry and Richardson's heads explode and their man-parts fall off when they get bested by "the girl."

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

ROTFLMAO - well, now bluelyon, the last reason would be an EXCELLENT reason for her to take it, if offered! Thanks for the lagh this morning, and for your thoughts on this!

With the story I found late last night for today's roundup, I think it's am Obama trick..
Float her name, then bring out the dirt on why she can't be named, esp. after that crap about all the "vetting" so appointees won't sully Obama's "reputation"...

I agree she should not be Sec. of State. She'd make a much better Atty. General.

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

IAG - see, that's my fear with Obama. As I keep saying, I don't TRUST him. He is sneaky, and duplicitous. And judging from the crapola Chris Matthews has already said abt her and the SoS, you may be on to something...

Chimpy - that's a thought abt Attorney General. She was, after all, voted one of the top 100 most influential attorneys in the US twice, so there's that. If she could help to restore our reliance on laws and the Constitution, I'd be all for it (remember, she voted AGAINST FISA, unlike Obama)...Hmmm...

And bluelyon makes some good points abt her time in the Senate...I dunno - obviously, she'll do what she thinks is best...

bluelyon said...

That's just it. She'll do what she thinks best. What is best for the country that is. Her political ambitions have always been about moving her agenda forward, not moving herself forward. When I think of what force she could be on the international scene, rather than having to bide her time in the Senate and waiting around for crumbs from the Big Boys' table, I get chills.

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Hey, bluelyon -

Well, you are certainly making a compelling argument. And you are right, she is not abt moving herself forward, but doing what is best for the country. I guess that will be her ultimate decision IF Obama offers her the job (because really - who the hell knows what he is REALLY going to do - btw, American Girl in Italy has a GREAT post abt Clinton and her foreign policy experience - does she have it or not - at No Quarter).

And really - it is more abt HIM and his way of dealing that worries me more than her taking the position. I haven't the least doubt that she would be fantastic IF she was allowed to really do the job. So I have those kinds of doubts. I just don't see how Obama would let her really do her job without micromanaging her or undermining her. If it was McCain, for instance, I would not have those concerns. But I have seen how Obama operates, and it ain't pretty...

Thanks for the good comments!!

bluelyon said...

Yeah, I saw the post at NQ. Aside from Kerry and Richardson's reaction, would be also to see the Obots' heads explode from the cognitive dissonance.

I have one friend in particular whose face I'd like to rub in it, if HRC is named SoS.

Yes, I'm leery of the way Obama operates. And really, this whole conversation we are all having is just tea leaf reading (no pun intended).

:)

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Yes, but it's FUN tea leaf reading! :-) And yes, the head exploding might just be worth it...It just really makes me wonder what is up Obama's sleeve, you know?

How can people - you know, the ones who aren't completely addicted to the kool aide - reconcile this possible move with all that Obama said abt her?? Yep - talk abt your cognitive dissonance indeed!!

Sophie said...

Despite the fun we could have with the Obots on this one, I think she should run from him. Can you imagine giving up your career to help a guy who seems hell bent on destroying your career? Every bad decision would get blamed on her, until he was "forced" to throw her under the bus for the sake of the country. I am not interested in hearing the "that's not the Hillary I knew" speech.

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

See, Sophie, that is exactly of what I am afraid. I have NO DOUBT that she could DO the job, and do it brilliantly, if she is ALLOWED to do it. Obama seems so think-skinned, and so self-centered, that I just cannot imagine he would allow her to do what needs doing, especially if it gets her positive press. He worked mighty damn hard to tear her down, after all...

susanclare said...

I agree 1000%, rabble rouser. Hillary should not accept the position. She'll be doing all the work, she'll get none of the credit but all of the blame. No way she should do this. As a Senator, she can keep a bit of independence. Instead of having "the power" she'll be under the thumb of BO. Not a happy place to be!

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Hey, SusanClare -

Have you heard that Obama offered her the job? No word yet on if she took it or not...Oh, wow - I will be so mixed abt this. I will love seeing her more, and knowing that she will work her HEART out for this country, but SHE should be the one deciding who was going to be in HER Administration...Oh, darn that ONC stealing the nomination...Ahem.

Anywho - I know she is quite competent to do what she feels is right for her and the country, but ugh...Blech. Yuck. It just makes me grind my teeth that she would be "serving at his pleasure..."
