Ummm, welcome to 2007-8?

The GOP using fear to control their base - what a surprise.

Hmm why didn't Ric Rimero cover with headlines. Conservatives scare tactics of things that will never happen.

The biggest anti-Hillary money-grabber is America Rising, a Republican super-PAC created to research and track Democratic candidates on a year-round basis. Run by Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign manager, Matt Rhoades

I cannot emphasize enough how much conservatives should support a PAC led by a man with such impeccable credentials.

They can use any other emotion and seem human.

I'm against dynasties as a rule of thumb.  But, if the American people are so stoopid as to vote in one, I'd rather it be a Clinton than a Bush.

What's the conservative obsession with this strong conservative woman?

I'm beginning to think the real ideological basis of the republican party is encapsulated in the phrase "A fool and his money are soon parted."

What are the odds of them saying that she'd be "the most liberal president in history"?
 
2013-07-15 10:23:24 AM  
Wow, this will be highly effective.     Mississippi, Georgia and Oklahoma are going to from really, really red to really, really, realy red.

You notice how the GOP is not for anything just against things?
 
2013-07-15 10:23:57 AM  
It must be exhausting to be this fearful and paranoid all the time.

Tax cuts for the 1%. Tax increases on the middle class. For them they are.

They save energy by riding around in hover rounds instead of walking.  It is the only way to maintain the envy to rage.

Didn't they show that movie to death in 2008? I hope they at least remastered it and included some extras.

Matt Roads. Matt Ro-ads.

I kind of hope she does get the nomination for the sole reason of seeing just how disgustingly misogynistic the GOP can really get.
 
2013-07-15 10:31:00 AM  
Conservatives are getting the band back together. I'm actually curious to see who crawls out of the GOP woodwork on this one.

And when she wins, GOP heads might literally explode. Not sure what the science is behind that, but something is going to happen.

Say, is Hillaryis44.org still up and running?
 
2013-07-15 10:37:38 AM  
And yet it's the liberals who fear "strong women" like Sarah Palin.

Well, they turned the racism up to 11* when Obama was elected, so I am sure they will do the same thing for misogyny if/when Hillary is back in the White House.

/ 11 for Republicans. eighty bajillion for the sane world.
 
2013-07-15 10:38:51 AM  
Hillary is the one candidate the D's could run that would guarantee wharever fool winds up in the R slot wins. The reanimated corpse of Ted Kennedy would do better. This makes me sad, as Hill has as close to a lock on that candidacy as on can have without Rove Emmanuel at the levers.

I think it'll be more like they'll just stop holding back.

If Hillary is the Dem nominee, she'll win.

I'm more confident about that now than I was in 2007-08.

Are you claiming that the GOP's War on Women isn't at 11 yet?

// I guess the US Congress hasn't gone full TX yet...

Based off their current abortion legislation, and the comments by their candidates during the last election, I'd say the republican's misogyny dial is already well past 11.

These more sound like scams to rip off and pocket money off stupid right wingers then serious political groups.

You mean the woman with the 50+ approval rating despite having spent the last 20 years in political crosshairs having every allegation and trumped up "scandal" thrown against her.   The woman who recently polled steamrolled every potential GOP candidate except for Christie, who she merely had a sizeable lead over.
 
2013-07-15 10:48:26 AM  
Screw that my friends HIllary is just part of the machine. We want Elizabeth Warren for president!

He sounds concerned, doesn't he?

I've worked in local gov't good ol' boy circles during up Hillary's presidential run  (this was long before the primaries were even on the horizon) and it was as if you'd thrown a box of rattlesnakes into the center of the room. Just wildly vitriolic responses. This was pretty obviously in an Old Southern patriarchal crowd.

I guess I expected a 'dismissive' attitude from this particular demographic when the potential for her to get close to the presidency didn't seem very viable, but there was immediately a serious truckload of FUD getting tossed about even back then.

I'll be loading up the popcorn and spectator snacks for this next round.
 
2013-07-15 10:53:00 AM  
The Democrats would do better putting somebody like Warren out there. There is just too much irrational dislike of Hillary Clinton still out there, and not only from misogyny. This isn't saying that the Republicans have anybody better since the party seems to have gone full retard in the last decade and a half, it's just saying that the race would be less close with Warren than it would Clinton, because it would probably bring some left leaning people that vote Green back to the D party (which seems to have become pretty conservative itself...pre-Watergate Nixon would probably be a Democrat in today's arena).

/Teddy Roosevelt, rabid trust buster and conservationist, would be labeled a dangerous socialist by both parties today

I mean, really, Christie is the only potential GOP candidate who is more popular than anal warts, and aside from the fact that he'll never get the GOP nomination in a million years because he worked with sekret moslem kenyan userper, he's only this popular because he's still an unknown through most of the country.   He's the smiling fat guy who helped his voters out after a hurricane.    Unless you've lived in New Jersey, you've never seen a single negative political ad against Christie.   His current popularity rates are unsustainable once he starts getting into the muck and mire of campaigning.   Meanwhile, what on earth could the GOP hit HIllary with that she hasn't already had thrown at her in the last 20 years?   They're going to reheat some crazy Vince Foster conspiracy theories from 1995?

I'm a Warren fan, but she only got 54% of the vote in her Senate run in one of the most pro-Democrat states in the country.   She's not winning any state remotely purple.

Here's looking to Bachmann/Palin or Santorum/Brownback in 2016. Run, baby, run!
