Hillary For President In 2012? You’d Better Believe It!

Hillary For President In 2012? You’d Better Believe It!

Back when I was a kid, in the rolling hills and red clay of piedmont South Carolina, we “country boys” knew what an expert was. As defined by us – an expert was: “a person who was a long ways from home.” Truthfully, I think we were correct then and I believe that definition, in many cases, is correct today.

In the field of political commentary we have, today, those we refer to as “Pundits.” The core definition of pundit is “expert.”

According to Wikipedia, a Pundit is someone who offers to mass-media his or her opinion or commentary on a particular subject area (most typically political analysis, the social sciences or sport) on which they are knowledgeable. (SOURCE)

The word, itself, goes all the way back to one of the most ancient languages… Sanskrit. So, it has been around for a very long time. That would mean that “experts” have been around for exactly the same length of time – more or less.

Just so you know, I don’t consider myself a pundit. There are exceptionally few things about which I could even be thought an expert.

Having said all of the above, I do plead guilty to being extremely opinionated with little hesitation to share my opinions with those interested in them.

Now that I have qualified what I am about to say, allow me to say it.

I believe Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic Party’s candidate for US President in 2012. Over the past — little more than a year and a half — I have watched Obama going through the motions while his handlers pull the strings. (The Shadow Government, remember?) As we approach the Mid-Term election in November, I believe the Obama puppeteers know they have accomplished nearly all they can hope for with Obama, and they are very near to cutting his strings.

Let’s face it. Obama is a joke! A costly joke, but a joke, nevertheless. His own fellow democrats are distancing themselves from him as far as they can get — and that includes hardcore democrats.

Here in the southern states, democrats are not just distancing themselves; they are RUNNING away from Obama as fast as they can. Sure, they are concerned for their own political survival in the upcoming Mid-Term Election, but there is more to it than that.

Southern democrats are mostly moderates tending to lean right. I am speaking, of course, of the southern democrat voters – not the southern democrat politicos. They Southern Democratic voters soured, almost immediately, on Obama and what they see as his socialist agenda.

Southerners, by and large, are fiercely loyal to the US Constitution and the United States. They perceive Obama’s Socialist/Marxist agenda as a direct attack upon their constitutional rights, upon their state‘s rights, not to mention the dignity and honor of the United States of America. They are more than a little angry and, no matter which political party they bestow their allegiance upon, they want Obama and his cohort of Leftists and Socialists and Marxists and Progressives GONE.

All this while, Hillary’s troops have been polishing her image while watching and evaluating the voter’s reactions to Obama’s agenda. They have been planning accordingly. When the time is right, in their estimation, Hillary will step from the wings and offer herself as the voice of reason, sounding, for all the world like a Ronald Reagan conservative– at least, when compared to Obama!

It is my opinion, that if Obama does not change his angle of attack very soon now, he will not get the Democratic nomination for President. Hillary will.

We have seen Obama’s stubborn streak when it comes to moderating his ideology. He is not interested in compromising it one little bit. That may very well be his undoing, and the making of President Hillary Clinton.

Oh, one final comment: If the GOP does not offer the republican voters a better slate of candidates (than they did in 2008) in the primaries leading up to the Presidential election in 2012, I strongly believe Hillary Clinton will be our next President.

Punditry? Call it what you will. I’m just sharing my opinion.

Hillary For President In 2012?

I have been hearing the same thing from several other folks that I consider to be politically in the know. I have presented this very thing to some hard core Republicans recently, and they were SHOCKED at the idea.

That shock, in and OF itself, is one of the reasons I have so many problems getting behind the Republican party. They are NOT prepared and forward thinking appears to be something that has escaped them entirely.

    We had a thread on this very thing last week on a board I’m on. I think the consensus was: Folks would have voted for Hillary in 08 rather than McCain. And that says something among those guys…

    I think it’s a very good possibility that Hillary will run in 2012. And I think Obama is HELPING her. I honestly believe Obama doesn’t want another term and he wants the Democrats to retain power. Obama is going to push through as much of his progressive agenda as he can and then step aside. Hillary will look like Reagan and if the R’s don’t put up a good choice she’ll win it.

    Good article again by JD.

    This goes back to my earlier statement on your other thread Fred, Primaries are the fight of our lives. IF we can’t convince the establishment that they have strayed, all hope is lost.

    Rob — Last week I was on the phone talking Todd Gottel, our Mayor Pro Tem, and primaries are, no pun intended, the PRIMARY concern…

    We were discussing voter apathy and just what it’s going to take to motivate the RIGHT and Conservative base…

    Personally, I have NO ideas at this time, I AM motivated, but we have a city of over 60K citizens, over 32K are registered to vote…

    Last election, less than 1,600 of those registered voters got out and voted, and we had one particular race that was decided by 1 vote… 1 vote…

    Anyone that thinks that voting is a matter to be taken lightly, anyone that thinks their vote doesn’t count, all they need to do is read this post and Google Rowlett Texas City Council election results…

    Figured this was coming. People are on to Obama so the puppet masters will present Hillary as the healer of all wounds. Same agenda within a different package. A Marxist package with a nicer ribbon.

    Interesting post and you have some very good points. Right now, Hilary looks almost conservative compared to Obama.

    Yesterday I was talking to a good friend, a retired Bird Colonel. I mentioned although I didn’t like having Bill Clinton’s signature on my retirement certificate I’m glad it’s his and not Obama’s. We both felt bad for the GI’s retiring since Obama took over. He’s got HW Bush’s on his. We both wished we could have had Ronald Regan’s signature.

    I pray that she does. It will split the Democrats in 2012 the way Teddy ‘The Lush’ Kennedy did in 1980.

    As I said on JD’s blog:
    JD, Is probably correct - again. Lord Help us. Two people I want to see gone from Washington D.C are the current President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. When we believed Hillary Clinton was confined to the dust bins of history by Obama. Hillary takes the dust she is dealt and works to emerge as experienced in interfacing verses bowing with foreign government specialists. Even in the eyes of First Lady followers Hillary come out way ahead of Michelle Obama.

    There is no doubt in my mind that Hillary is probably going to oppose Barack Obama in the 2012 primary, and if she does, she just might win. This comes as no shock to me as I feel she still has bad feelings about being denied the nomination last time around. This could be one of the biggest reason that Democrats are beginning to talk about replacing Biden on the ticket with Hillary-to eliminate the competition.

    This was a well written piece. YOU are absolutely right! She’s the one. God help us all.

  9. comment number 9 by: jd3

    When asked in an interview about the possibility of a single term Obama said, “I would rather be a good one term President than a bad two term President.” He left out the logical possibility that he could be a bad one term president. We can only hope that Hillary will split the vote and mess things up for the DEMS.

    John — And hope the GOP can come up with something a hell of a lot better than McCain and Palin…

    I am wondering myself if Hillary would split the democrat- party. Hopefully she would, but I wouldn’t want to bet the wellbeing of a nation on it. She would just be another Obama in pants suits. These people will never give up. Are all the democrats, those in politics not just the voters, now communists? Seems they, the communists, have groomed a candidate for every ocassion. That seems to be what the London Times thought too, back in 2003.

    According to the AIM — (Accuracy In Media) Report.
