Slip Slidin’ Away

It was supposed to be MY turn!

It was supposed to be MY turn!

Slip slidin’ away
Slip slidin’ away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you’re slip slidin’ away

This must seem like deja vu all over again for Hillary.

In 2007 she was supposed to be the front-runner. She had money, endorsements, and name recognition. Her approval rating had never been higher. She had just been reelected to the Senate. Voters had Bush fatigue and had turned against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. All she had to do was win the nomination and she would finally realize her life’s ambition to become the historic First Woman President™.

Then newcomer Barack Obama came along and rudely shoved her out of the way and stole the nomination.

That had to sting. But she swallowed her pride (but not her ambition) and made a deal with the devil. She would end her campaign and support Obama in exchange for being his designated heir. She turned down the vice presidency and chose to be Secretary of State so she could burnish her credentials.

Fast forward eight years and she is just one step from returning to the White House. But once again she can see it slipping away.

It’s like a Greek tragedy, except instead of hubris she is guilty of overweening ambition.

      Love it, took it and will spread it around.
      I live just a little north of him if he really lives in Kentucky.
      And I look just like him, and have the same beliefs.
      Part of that is false.
      The belief part is true though.

    You want to know how desperate the Left is right now? They’re pretending to like GWB.

    • swanspirit says:

      In yet another absolutely hideous dress. I guess she picks from the what not to wear column, or her body image is so distorted, that she picks some dress that would only ever look good on a size 1 model on a runway, and imagines that is how she looks in it.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Michelle likes “to pop” in a crowd, unfortunately, sometimes more ways than one. 😉

      • lateblum says:

        Yup. Another wardrobe fail.
        But what’s one more failure among friends?

      • It will be really nice to have a genuine fashion icon as FLOTUS again.

      • Constance says:

        I was on vacation in Washington DC last week and one of the Smithsonian museums has an exhibit of First Lady’s dresses. Some of those gals were entirely too honest, I would have had my dress altered to a size 8 then donated it. It is really interesting because they are all different sizes and styles. But Michelle’s stuck out both for being really tall and also it seemed to be made of a gauzy fabric that had these fabric baubles all over it that didn’t seem right for a formal occasion, it was more like a sun dress. My favorites were Caroline Harrison’s dress and I loved a blue dress worn by Hillary. But the climate back there is horrible, kind of like a sauna that someone has dumped two buckets of water in. So Michell’s white cotton looking dress probably made sense for the climate. People walk around back there in full suits as if they don’t know it’s hot.

        • elliesmom says:

          But the inauguration is in January. It’s cold in DC then.

        • DeniseVB says:

          The First Ladies Hall is my Mecca whenever I visit DC ! Did you hold your foot up next to Michelle’s Jimmy Choo shoes? I got my foot and a half of the other one in them 😀

          I think the white chenille bedspread dress was from the first inaugural, at my last visit they had her red dress from the second inaugural ball, and noticeably sized down a notch or two. Are both dresses on display now?

          How fun, I love DC, thanks for the trip report !

          • Constance says:

            I don’t remember the red dress from the museum but I think I remember it. I’d never been to DC before so I was trying to see everything. Over 20,000 steps a day on my fitbit for the whole week! And yes those were some pretty big shoes.

    • lateblum says:

      They pretend to like people. They pretend to like Americans. Period.

    • jeffhas says:

      So GWB is just fine with all the ‘W’ and ‘previous and administration’ blame that continues to this day….?

      I don’t expect him to hold animosity necessarily – especially for Mooch – but it is odd that everyone is so affectionate…. It’s like they belong to a special club or family far bigger then then just Left/Right, Republican/Democrat… Could it be there is a Globalist Family with such a large umbrella that all underneath just pretend to have family squabbles so the little people will go along with their umbrella plans?

      Well, I know when I’ve been played.

      My super-inner-dream-of-dreams is that Trump isn’t one of them, or cannot be ‘leveraged’ to be one… I mean that’s why I’m supporting him – hoping/assuming a multi Billionaire can’t be leveraged the way the Clintons/Bushes/Obama’s (Romney/McCains) could be…

      …. But I’ll be looking out after Election Day, and if Donald wins, he better look into the IRS, F&F, HCR, Benghazi, $Iran$, Email scandals to make sure they really are investigated and people made to be held accountable with criminal or other damning action (if it’s proven there are really scandals)…. And if Donald doesn’t ask for these investigations (says “we need to move on as a Country”, or “cannot spend time or resources worrying about the past”, etc), I for one will be disappointed in President Trump immediately, and worried the Globalist Crime Family made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.

      My support for Trump is not blind or unending…. But right now, he is our ONLY hope of breaking free from the Corrupt Globalist Crime Family…. He is the only shit we have – everyone else was long bought and paid for it looks like.

      • jeffhas says:

        ‘Thing’ we have, not ‘shit’ – although it comes out OK anyways! (LOL!).

      • DeniseVB says:

        I was wondering why GWB was there and not other former presidents. Seems he signed the bill to have the museum built.

        I’m trying to keep my independent mind open when it comes to Hillary. After following her “career” for over 20 years I can’t think of a reason to vote for her. If she wins, it’ll just be more corrupt government as usual. She just talks about stuff without ever doing anything about it. What accomplishments she claims sounds more like jobs or sitting on a board or committee that talked about doing stuff too. Sarah Palin was much more accomplished in comparison. From PTA president to AK Gov, she made stuff actually happen.

        As far as getting elected to the Senate, she had help for all the wrong reasons. And JFK,Jr didn’t run against her, he died.

        • lizzy says:

          Why would JFK Jr. run against her for the Senate? He was much too young. He had never been elected to state wide office. He was not a fit candidate for the Senate at the time Hillary was running.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Min.age for Senate is 30, John-John was 38 when he died. Uhm, Hillary was never elected to a state wide office prior to 1999 either. Hillary wasn’t “fit” either, but JFKjr was more loved than Hillary at the time.

    • Saw that yesterday and thought the exact same thing. Desperate.

  2. DandyTIger says:

    My guess for Hillary’s get under Trump’s skin operation at the debate will be the he’s a liar responses to most everything Trump says. The Clinton campaign has been pushing the everything Trump says is a lie, proved by independent fact checkers, as well as pushing for the moderator to fact check live. So her followers and the media are primed for live fact checking. And if the moderator doesn’t do it, it will be more acceptable for Hillary to do it live. So watch for frequent interruptions from Hillary “that’s a lie” to a lot of what Trump says. And let’s see how Trump handles it.

    • Constance says:

      Yes and I haven’t heard any of the local Media talk about that, it’s like they are politely averting their eyes because it isn’t PC to acknowledge violent hostile Muslim immigrants. Media were all over calling the shooter Hispanic although the authorities never did and it looks like the young woman who was shot by this guy IS Hispanic and her mother doesn’t speak English. It makes me really mad and sick how these crazy middle eastern Muslim immigrants go off and kill people and then the media go off about how violent Americans and American culture are. Clearly whoever is vetting Muslim middle eastern immigrants has no idea what they are doing and it is unconscionable that they are exposing hard working Americans to their pet violent crazy’s. Witnesses have said this guy was yelling something before shooting.

      • swanspirit says:

        Another Muslim that couldn’t find the Aloha Snack bar in the mall, and blamed women for not pointing it out to him, so he shot them? I understand now.

        • Constance says:

          He has some domestic violence history and at least one of his parents had a restraining order against him at one time.

    • votermom says:

      He’s a Hispanic from Turkey.
      A Fowl-American.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Again. And again. Almost a trend, or something……

  4. DandyTIger says:

    Fun gun control thought. So when BLM looks like the Taliban, rioting, pulling down statues, demanding strict social behavior or else, and then when we see islamic terrorists like in Seattle, and countless other places, and for all of that, the left still pushes for gun control. Let’s imagine for a minute that the 2nd Amendment was indeed only about arming and forming militias to defend the US. And note that the current government isn’t doing what it needs to defend us from these things. Isn’t what’s going on exactly the sort of thing you’d say needed well armed militias?

    • Constance says:

      That’s exactly how I’m feeling. Like I need weapons to be able to defend myself from the violence my Democrat government is importing and inciting.

      • 49erDweet says:

        The interestingthing about it is if any movement tries to take the 2nd away they’re gonna need a foreign force to do so, cause local and regional LE types would resist and they vastly overmatch fed forces, even supposing feds would go along with such a change.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I totally agree. If we’re headed to another civil war, I’m glad I’m on the side with the guns.

    • kanaughty says:

      I agree and if we have to defend ourselves cause cops too slow, i say me and my hubs constitutes a militia to help save all the people around us in a situation like these types of attacks.

  5. Anthony says:

    If Trump simply focuses on her accountability re Benghazi, emails, Russian “reset”, selling plutonium, GCI pay-to-play, she just may go full Trigglypuff…

    • blowme0bama says:

      I think every time She wants to ask for a “fact check” (which will certainly be from some sketchy lefty site), he should fire back “You are a congenital liar, a thief, and incompetent”, then throw out the email, CGI, Benghazi, pay-to-play, etc.

      • Anthony says:

        As much as I’d like to hear him do that, I think its to his benefit to NOT engage in tit-for-tat insults. He would be better served by being presidential in his approach, like letting her exhaust herself and then patiently saying “Now that you’ve got that out of your system, can you please answer the question about your role in Benghazi/email scandal/GGI/p2p etc. ?”

        • blowme0bama says:

          I think he can say that to her and come off as presidential. It depends on his tone. If he gets that snarl on his face, that’s where he comes off as a bully.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I saw the list of Trump lied fact checks on a lib site that was basically referencing PolitFact, which is known for out of context facts to check. Hillary needs to worry about Hillary facts and Trump needs not to roll his eyes or sneer at her 🙂

    • mcnorman says:

      I’m so sick of her lying that I do hope that he triggers her into a full blown freak out.

  6. DandyTIger says:

    OMG, this election just got better. Crack smoking, shaky Stephanie Cutter will be on meet the press today.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Hmmm? Was this all a Trump “head” game. Hee, hee.

  8. Kathy says:

    But, how stupid do you have to be to aggravate Trump with are going to troll the master troller, really ? And Flowers doesn’t have to be there, he’s won by everyone on Twitter looking her up.

    • Constance says:

      I don’t see how inviting in antics from Mark Cuban makes Hillary look good. Does she need a big loud male to give her presence? If so who will the big loud male be when she is serving as President? Is she afraid of the issues so she plants Cuban the clown in the audience to distract? Cuban antics can’t make the issues go away, they are still there and they need attention. It’s just really bad form and I don’t think it will even make Trump blink. Yes men puff up larger than life and get loud and that is a response women can’t fake but Hillary should be going with the All Powerful Mother who trumps all nonsense. Hillary doesn’t really have a good understanding of female power and the morons who advise her don’t recognize anything but sexual power so if they can’t dress a woman in a lingerie inspired outfit they don’t know how to convey female power.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Well, what is Cuban going to do? I mean is he going to be disruptive or something? If he does, Trump ought to say, “I’m not going to continue with this clown show. If I hear one more peep out of you, I’m going to ask that you be removed”.

      • Anthony says:

        Cuban and Trump had a little bit of a bitch fight last week. Cuban is also standing in for Trump in HRC’s debate prep. HRC has committed herself to “getting under Trump’s skin” i.e. getting him to lost his cool. Cuban’s presence might be able to do that.

        Conversely, Trump (per unofficial reports of some of the interns that I know) has been practicing how to NOT ready emotionally, and instead present himself as a pragmatic and more mature and levelheaded candidate than HRC. That can be easily done by indulging her rants, and then ignoring a response and instead questioning some of her policy ideas and her record of service as SOS

        • blowme0bama says:

          Here’s the thing, there’s not really ANYTHING HRC can bring up against anyone, really, that she hasn’t been involved with something similar that is much worse.
          “Mysogyny” = Rapin’ Bill
          “Trump University” – Laureate University
          “Bankruptcies” – 6 Billion Missing from State Department …

          On and on.

        • blowme0bama says:

          Ooops, that your response was in the preceding commentary.

  9. Kathy says:

    I am more and more convinced that the HRC campaign is just stupid.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m watching a Star Wars movie on TNT and HRC is running Trump bashing campaign ads on this? Exactly what demo is she trying to reach ? Well, me excluded, I’m just not in the mood to watch NFL on the big screen downstairs 😉

    • 49erDweet says:

      I think her campaign is similar to the recent GOPe primary campaign. Using historical campaigning methodologies. Old fashioned. Print media intensive, running on a daily paper/newscast rhythm. Trump’s campaign is social media intensive, running on a moment-by-moment, conversational rhythm. He’s running circles around her and her staff, and they haven’t yet figured out why.

  10. lateblum says:

    They are running scared. It was never more evident than last night on Twitter.
    Last night on Twitter, there was a barrage of anti-Trump and anti-Trump supporters tweets. It was brutal. Charges of racism and misogyny – particularly from a favorite (of mine) UW follower. At one point I asked “Seriously?” The fear/hate was palpable. I could smell and taste it.
    A couple of the nasty (I assume) tweets were removed or “no longer available”. I can only imagine what they were like.

    Charges of racism and misogyny – give me a break!

    • Somebody says:

      I know. Yesterday when you weren’t around, I thought maybe you decided to binge watch the best college games so you could get your football fix. BTW I highly recommend trying that method. There are weekly guides as to the best match ups, plus it gives you a chance to see the up and coming players.

    • DeniseVB says:

      College football too. Saw clips of teams, cheerleaders taking a knee and lots of fans/students with their fists in the air. All I saw were let thugs be thugs solidarity. Just so sad.

      • CiscoKid says:

        I’m done also, reduced to watching local HS football .

  18. SHV says:

    NBC trying to immunize Hillary from debate disaster:
    “Do Presidential Debates Impact Election Outcomes?”

    NBC says debates don’t affect election. IMO, if Hillary has a medical “event”, she is done.

      While I think there is some “validity” to that statement, the key point is the word ILLEGAL…get the *uck out of my country…go work for Ford in Mexico.

      • 1539days says:

        The other problem is that LEGAL Americans have to work for minimum wage and in legal working conditions. Hiring illegals means these employers can violate OSHA and cheap out on other requirements.

    • Constance says:

      Well since 30% of our kids don’t graduate from High School they better learn to live on those low paid jobs. We don’t need to import unskilled labor. We also don’t need to be taxed to support people who think they are too good to work.

    • jeffhas says:

      Except, if there were no illegals, employers would have to pay more to get legal workers… Then more of ‘us’ would be willing to do the work.
