According to Chris, Barry and Angela are the new Ronnie and Maggie. Oh and Angela makes Hillary a shoe -in because she proves a woman can lead.

So now we see Hillary '16's theme: If you don't vote for me, you are sexist!

rse

None of us question whether a woman can lead but nothing in Hill's background indicates she will lead. Such a fine job as SoS.

The other day I was reading about the current admin's explicit industrial policy in an official NRC report. It mentioned that the Clintons had also rolled out an industrial policy approach in 1993. Then complained about GW's tax policy approach instead.

I think we forget how losing the House in 94 derailed where those 2 were really going.

henry

Industrial policy is just the legal framework for cronyism. The Clintons were chasing MITI into oblivion, the JEF is chasing the Chinese to the same place.

Elbert Guillory: "Why I Am a Republican"

It would be better entitled, in my view, "Why I am a conservative" but I understand he is talking about formal party identification and in that, he is completely correct in his history and what it is I would expect from the Republican Party, going forward.

Time well spent listening to Mr Guillory.

This is from last night's thread,

The JEF's "industrial policy" has us paying 40 cents per kWh to try and charge the dead battery in our Fisker cause the Solyndra solar panel on the garage roof was defective and so are the Chinese junk solar panels which replaced it.

The watermelons spend their days on their BOzophones and Facebooks bitching about the warranties and planning protests against the government for not doing a better job of "regulating" nonperformance.

Jeb Bush will headline a fundraiser for Gov.Lepage in Kennebunkport on July 2nd.Snowe and Collins are two of several event hosts.$3,000 per couple,$2,000 per person.
rse,you might find this interesting...Lepage has used Jeb Bush as a model on education policy,including the A-F grading system for schools.
Jack,is Frederick watching the puffin cam? The egg is going to hatch soon!

James Fallows was the Paul Krugman of the 80s in Japan, having missed the tech bubble, he just flowed upwards in the Atlantic, making William Dean Howells cry in the process.

Sorry the land bubble, Stratford's Friedman also believed in the omnipotent Japanese leviathan,

None of us question whether a woman can lead but nothing in Hill's background indicates she will lead. Such a fine job as SoS.

In a sane world with an opposition party possessing a functioning cortex, Rodham's experience as SoS would be the end of the road for public office. She should be challenged to produce one example of success.

So, the Iranian moderate was part of the planning of the AMIA bombing, just like Mousavian the bobbsey twin was in the Times yesterday, was involved in the murder of Kurdish dissidents in Berlin, in 1993.

Interpol will swear out a warrant any day. . .

henry-I am outlining from a 2010 UNESCO report so I can write after I take the Diva to camp. One of the things I am going to highlight is the language on wanting approval over future shifts in technology. What a boon to existing players beyond the dollar amounts of the crony contracts in the now omnipresent "public-private partnerships."

These clowns really are trying to create minds and worldviews incapable of unapproved creative destruction.

narciso

And of course you have proof that Darwin was wrong'

James D.

Is there anyone, anyone at all, who takes Chris Matthews seriously? Or even semi-seriously? Even among the most dedicated Obama-worshippers?

henry

rse, they should be worried about creative destruction. As the same people play musical chairs in managing big tech, they don't really succeed in providing customer or shareholder value -- that is death in a free market.

Captain Hate

Does Henninger understand that the Berlin Wall was built to keep people in East Berlin? Has Rupert fired all the editors?

Exactly. She was an incompetent failure at State. She should have been fired after all the security breaches at our Embassies around the world & the siege at Benghazi.
Our flag was taken down at OUR embassy in Egypt for heaven's sake.
Shamed & fired for dangerous incompetence.

Old Lurker

James, they elected Obama didn't they? Why wouldn't they like Chrissy?

matt

What stuns me is the sheer lase' attitude of this administration towards its sins. They really don't give a damn.

The chairman of AP is mumbling off in a corner that no one will talk to his reporters anymore. Holder has decided that the best policy at DoJ is smugness.

And in every single case to date the Administration response is to give the finger to the Legislative branch.

Over in Ireland, the President is once again meddling where he shouldn't be in religion of all things and in a way that demonstrates not only his tin ear, but his statist, amoral philosophy. Then he moves on to Berlin where he speaks like a stuttering idiot.

His wife demonstrates that she is a hobo and allows an inappropriately dressed child to be photographed by the world's press.

These people and bad in the original sense of the word. Arendt's description of the banality of evil fits perfectly.

So the markets went all 'Black Hawk Down' over the mere prospect of Helicopter Ben pulling the punch bowl

Hey man..it's like..um..embarrassing to have a President this embarrassing, man.

narciso

So, AP doesn't like being Ann Sheridan, to Obama's James Cagney, I think I have the right reference.

narciso

Ah, the Phew poll;

MarkO

I decry the false choice between an embarrassing President and a President who is just not that smart. In America, we can have both.

maryrose

matt:
Your comment about Holder and smugness describes his attitude to a "T". I think that sense of entitlement when you have over 160 congressmen asking you to resign is the height of hubris. Here's hoping the old adage"the bigger they think they are, the harder they fall" comes into play sooner rather than later.
Disgrace and embarassment are what I wish for him. A prison cell would be nice also butwe all know the pardon from preezy is being worked out as we speak.The pardon will come AFTER the midterms however. Bammy won't care if the blowback crushes Hil's chances.The dems remain clueless as Bumbles continues to trash their party for the future with his total lack of clarity and ability to do the job he was falsely elected to do.

maryrose

narciso: If you are referring to the grapefruit to the face scene ,then yes, you have the correct reference. It was the 40's equivalent to being b----slapped.

Scientific inquiry stifled by government:

"The FBI has arrested two men, including a Ku Klux Klan member, for trying to build an X-ray weapon to kill Muslims and other people they perceived as 'enemies of Israel', including President Barack Obama."

Danube on iPad

Hillary won't have to point to any successes. When she stepped down as SoS, Barbara Boxer cooed "you've made us lots of friends." That'll be more than enough to get the LIVs swooning.

Ignatz

A guy in the KKK was building a sooper dooper ray gun to kill the enemies of Jews?
Why am I skeptical?

Danube on iPad

The KKK guy was from New York state, too. Go figure.

MarkO

Were those KKK boys profiled? Were they charged with Federal Felony Stupidity? Conspiracy to Perform an Unnatural Act?

We all know that cleanliness is next to impossible.

Marlene

matt,I agree with your comment about MO and the girls in Ireland.They looked like slobs. They really have contempt for all of us.

bgates

Hillary won't have to point to any successes.

Pointing is a weapon of the patriarchy anyway, appropriating the hand as a phallic symbol.

Back to the thread topic, I think it's a big step for Chrissy to implicitly acknowledge Barry doesn't have control over the heavens.

Captain Hate

Hillary won't have to point to any successes. When she stepped down as SoS, Barbara Boxer cooed "you've made us lots of friends." That'll be more than enough to get the LIVs swooning.

This might be a novel concept but maybe we could have a candidate that could make the case directly. That would be unlike Juan "You have nothing to fear from a Rodham presidency" McRINO or Willard "She's just like me only more testosterone" Romney.

I can always dream, can't I?

Captain Hate

I agree with your comment about MO and the girls in Ireland.They looked like slobs. They really have contempt for all of us.

More like contempt for the micks imo; but I'll defer to the contemptible dumbassdave on that. Add in the JEF's ignorant comments on "the troubles" and I think you have the trifecta of stoopid.

jimmyk

"Rodham's experience as SoS would be the end of the road for public office. She should be challenged to produce one example of success."

I never did understand what made her remotely qualified. A few years as a carpet-bagging senator? Or was it her commodities trading skill? Her shell game with the Rose law firm records?

Ignatz

The sycophant press is always yapping about some "teachable moment" for the dull-witted Barry.
Has this fool ever experienced a "learnable moment"?
Joe the plumber and Joe Wilson tried but he doesn't seem too receptive.

Ignatz

Can you imagine what Lee Atwater would have done to a candidate Hillary?

Jane

She is utterly unqualified. It's all about giving Bill a third term. Next Michelle Obama will run in 2024, until Chelsea is of age.

Bill may not make it until 2016. He looks awful.

Captain Hate

Bill may not make it until 2016. He looks awful.

Plus he sounds really ignorant for those who bother to wade through his cornpone blathering to try and sift any substance out of it.

narciso

So Carhls Johnson had shown some brief flickers of sanity re Snowdem, that was a passing phase.

jimmyk

Hillary doesn't look so great herself. Late-night binge drinking will do that.

narciso

Well I saw him as the Razorback conman that he was, but the press gave him a pass, at the very least.

jimmyk

Narc you must have a cast-iron stomach to venture anywhere near CJ's rantings.

Clarice

Hillary is a not too smart, sociopathic liar of no great achievement, with Dr K, I say "bring her on!"

Captain Hate

until Chelsea is of age.

That'll be never. She has the personality of Muffer and the looks of Webb Hubbell. She couldn't even be responsible for taking care of Socks the Cat. I'll bet somebody has to dress her in the morning and cut up her food.

narciso

It was a Hoft link, and I was referring to his excerpting of details like Greenwald's doubletalk and the real patter of the Nadler kerfluffle.

Captain Hate

Every now and then I wonder if I was retroactively banned at fat bicycle boy's place but I can't stand the thought of visiting that asylum.

Jane

"That'll be never. She has the personality of Muffer and the looks of Webb Hubbell."'

She's a narcissist. If it's not about her she pouts and stamps her feet. That seems to be the criteria for a democrat president these days.

College Insurrection dot com has a great post about being forced to wear "the ribbon". It has the Seinfeld clip too. Very good.
I can't link it though...(tried twice)

Extraneus

I never did understand what made her remotely qualified. A few years as a carpet-bagging senator? Or was it her commodities trading skill? Her shell game with the Rose law firm records?

Wasn't it the extensive White House experience? That's what qualifies her for president, too. Also anyone who was a chief of staff, or press secretery.

Comanche Voter

So the sun in Berlin was making it difficult for Obama to demonstrate his leadership--er make that "teleprompter readership"?

Maybe Mother Gaia is tired of all of Obama's cocakamamie whining about "climate change". That will teach him to mess with Mother Nature.

Cecil Turner

A few years as a carpet-bagging senator?

The first time I read that . . . well, never mind.

Danube on IMac

NY Post:

In fairness to President Obama, it’s not that his Berlin speech yesterday was any more mushy than the one in 2008. It’s just that the first time around, so many chose not to notice.
matt

This X Ray case is a real hoot. The FBI screws up the Boston Marathon case wholesale; they were tasked to investigate Benghazi and that went down a rathole and now we are expected to believe a National Enquirer story of a couple of Klanners in upstate New York with a no shit ray gun.

I think I just figured out where all of the dope is being smoked.

peter

That was just Obama's way of telling the Catholics that they were just as stupid as the Jews for supporting him.

The first time I read that . . . well, never mind.

I would never say I had a great mind, but I thought the same thing.

MarkO-

I decry the false choice between an embarrassing President and a President who is just not that smart.

Keep it classy MarkO. Very funny.

and the ray gun...that has a "here hold my beer and watch this" vibe to it.

final tomorrow and the rest of the summer off!

Janet  --- -... .- -- .- ... ..- -.-. -.- ...

From what we know, it was Cheryl Mills making the State Dept. decisions. Lousy decisions, but at least she was engaged.
If Hillary couldn't keep up with what was going on at State...how in the world could she keep up with the entire country?

rich@gmu

If Hillary couldn't keep up with what was going on at State...

It is tough to even stay awake after a 3 day bender.

If the Senate wants to find out who all the ILLEGALS lurking in the shadows are.....maybe they could talk to the NSA and get the phone records???

Janet  --- -... .- -- .- ... ..- -.-. -.- ...

there are thousands of them...

.....maybe they could talk to the NSA and get the phone records???

wouldn't that get complicated because they'd first have to subtract out all the phones on citizens.

Janet-

and the press is there to hold her hair back while she is puking in the bathroom...everytime.

Oh my! Gov.Lepage made another comment today that has Dems running to the fainting couch. A Democratic State Senator gave the response to Lepage's budget veto threat. Lepage said..."he claims to be for the people but he's the first one to give it to the people without Vaseline".
I hope Snowe and Collins don't hear about this,they might not host his fundraiser. : )

Gus

You're correct Rich. We can't keep track of them until they self report!! This is good news!! Are we going to have another bill that is a PATHWAY TO NOT BEING A TERRORIST ANYMORE....bill? Maybe we could have a bill that says......all of you who came across our border to BLOW US UP, can come out of the shadows too!!!

Gus

Didn't we have a PATH TO CITIZENSHIP for the Tsarnaev brothers??

Boehner direct quote:

“And finally, let me be clear about one thing: America needs to secure our borders and reform our immigration laws. But immigration reform must – I mean must – be grounded in real border security. That’s what the American people believe, and it’s a principle that this House majority will insist upon.

And I’ve said for weeks that border security in the Senate bill is not sufficient to solve the problem. This week, the Congressional Budget Office agreed. It found that illegal immigration would only drop by 25 percent under the Senate plan. And I’ll just tell you, that will not cut it.

“Now, in my view, anything as far-reaching, as complex, and as permanent as immigration reform should not be enacted without broad bipartisan support. Every day as Obamacare is being implemented, Americans are reminded of what happens when you have big legislation rammed through Congress with minimum support. Americans’ confidence in their government is near an all-time low.

“So if immigration reform is going to work, it’s essential that we have the confidence of the American people and that it’s done the right way. First and foremost, that means confidence that our borders are secure; confidence that those who came here illegally are not given special treatment; confidence that hardworking taxpayers are being respected; and confidence that a majority of both parties have had their say and support the final product.”

The WSJ is pimping immigration pretty hard and their creative dance interpretation should always be checked against the actual words spoken.
