In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


White House: We Thought Hillary was Leaving

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney today said that while President Obama would “welcome” a move by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to stay on in a second Obama term, the White House didn’t know she was considering doing so.

From the pool report of the Carney’s gaggle:

Carney repeated Potus remarks from the Jay Leno show praising Secretary Clinton and saying he would be happy to have her remain in a second term, but added that aside from comments she reportedly made yesterday, the White House was under the impression she planned to leave. “He would certainly welcome having her stay,” he said of Potus. He said he had “nothing to add” to speculation about other post-election personnel choices should Potus win reelection.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal that is running today, Clinton for the first time left the door open to remaining on as Secretary of State..

  1. These people can’t even figure out whether or not key members of the administration plan to stay or go. No wonder they can’t figure out what’s really going on in the rest of the world.

    1. Actually, they are pretty damn good at purveying state-sponsored terror both domestically and abroad. I don’t even recognize what’s left of the Republic now. We have psychopathic criminals looting and running our country.

      1. You’ve got this right and WHERE are the Americans who should be waging an all-out war to get them OUT one way or another???? Why does no one see Obama for what he is? An enemy of the state. When will our military take steps to oust him? We should not have to go through an election to get rid of a traitor who loathes this nation. There are other quicker ways to remove someone who is clearly an enemy combatant that has infiltrated our nation. Obama is a terrorist plain and simple, and just because they forced him down our throats in an illegal sham election does NOT mean he is entitled to the protections or privileges of office. He needs to be dealt with as the sociopathic, murderous thug that he is! Surely when the powers that be were setting up the protections that surround the leader of the country they had not anticipated a usurper coming to power. Surely those protections don’t apply to an enemy of America?????? I feel the laws of self-defense should apply here. When can we legally defend ourselves, our families and our nation against the evil travesty that is Obama???????? Surely some of the Secret Service with loved ones feel the same way?????

        1. You are a geniune F-ing IDIOT. Take that gun you no doubt carry around everywhere you go….put it in your mouth…..and pull the trigger.

        2. Even though I agree with you, suprisingly more than you think might and do agree with you. But stating in so many words as you did, WAR, its not going to happen. And the only ones who will complain about this post are those darn libs. And I’m betting that less than 10% have ever served in the military. I wonder what America will be like say 20, 30, 40, 50 years down the road! Well there are plenty of movies made with this scenario. Could they all have been correct? I just hope and pray that things dont go this far. But if they do, I pray we get all them dang libs just so we can start a new slate. I’m sick and tired of this “apology and raise taxes” campaign for the last four years. Just my comments.

  2. hmmm. SenKerry can stop boning up on geography now.

    This is one strange administration; a former President is more popular than the one holding the office, his wife is better liked than her boss, and the Obama WhiteHouse doesn’t seem to be able to control them.

    1. Poor Mr Kerry
      He was promised that position, and now he lost that as well
      Guess he will just have to stay home with Theresa while she sucks up her gin soaked rasins

  3. She is. Come January 20, 2013 she’ll be out on her backside. At least that way she won’t be criticized for “quitting the team”. An easy out for her.


      1. I hope you are right Jason. I ask all people, just how in the hell can anyone in this administration go along with all this criminality in the Obama administration? 4 people died for crying out loud, and no one will ever be prosecuted for it. Also, Obama has taken a completely innocent political prisoner in the person who made the movie of muhammad. This man did NOTHING wrong. Eric Holder should go to prison for this. I don’t want Holder to resign, I want him in prison.

        1. …not to mention Fast and Furious. Nothing, NOTHING has been done regarding this. Eric Holder charged with contempt of Congress. As Chris Farley said: “Well, La, de FRICKIN’ da!

          I think the election will be a victory for Romney/Ryan and it will be larger than we could ever imagine. It’s been this way for weeks, now. The MSM is gonna say there was a sudden, last-minute surge in Romney voters. Whatever.

    1. Everyone who thinks any of these jokers are going to jail is crazy. Barry will start signing pardons on Nov. 7 and won’t stop until he has to walk out the door on his way to Mitt’s inauguration.

      1. You can’t pardon somebody who has not been convicted yet. Hopefully they will be convicted by Jan 20 so
        Flip Flopney can pardon them

  5. Isn’t it gonna be kinda difficult for Hillary to stay as SOS in a Romney administration? I would think he’s got a few choices of his own about who will be his SOS.

  6. Yeah, she should stay because she’s done SUCH a good job.

    Hillary, your political career is OVER. I hope any time you try to run for any office that ads are run showing you LYING about the Benghazi attack while standing NEXT TO the flag-draped coffins of the dead. There’s a special place in hell for you, Hillary; maybe you could run for office there.

  7. How could Hillary possibly do another term as Secretary of State – that would mean President Romney would have to ask her, and that ain’t gonna happen. Her ‘legacy’ is shot as well – what she did in letting those Americans die in Libya is criminal and will be prosecuted as such.

    1. Actually Hillary has so much support on the Hill, high 60s approvals (incl 30 percent of Republicans) and knows all the world leaders and how to knock their heads in, that I wouldn’t be surprised if Mitt asked her to stay on as SoS.

  8. Good grief these “New age progressive commies” are a riot a minute…Obama’s done in November…Old Hillary can pack a bag ..And the entire closet commie ..Muslim sympathizers clan can all jump in a Chevy Volt and head off the 40 miles to the next charging station….

  9. Ah so that was the deal!!!

    1)Obama and Hillary dont like one another, never have.
    2)Plan was she was out after election
    3)Clinton fell on her sword over Libya(sort of…buck stops here)
    4)Clinton back in play for second term

    that is how deals are made in Chicago and DC….always a financial and power tradeoff. That is what this is.

  10. Democrats are despicable. The DNC must be destroyed, its networks dismantled and its leadership punished severely. After the state-sponsored generational theft, you’re all leaving.

    1. I couldn’t agree more. Morally bankrupt. You have to be on a mental level with a phyco to act, say and do the things Democrats on the whole do.

  11. That would be great. Maybe we could lose a few more State Dept personnel due to mismanagement and failure to react in a timely manner. That should torpedo any further ambitions of this moron Clinton.

  12. Hmmmm,

    If I know my liberals. She says she might stay, then Obama says he would love her to stay but Hillary has already said she wanted to leave. This Administration is just pandering to women in these last two weeks of the election.

    Once you know these people and how they think its pretty simple.

  13. WHAT? This dialogue is actually happening? No one can figure out who has committed or promised to commit Hari Kari or to throw themselves or be thrown under the bus. They are way more messed up than they appear. This is true sdminstrative lunacy. Amazing, absolutely amazing!

  14. Hillary attempted to divert the blame for Benghazi from Obama. Bill is out campaigning. Her continuing in office is probably the payback. Reality is: once she took the blame for the security failures, she should have been kicked out immediately.

  15. I never came round to Obama – ’08 was the first time since ’84 I didn’t vote Dem – and he’s never grown on me.
    Hillary though…respect. Probably a bit of a bitch, but she’s a patriot, a damn smart one, and she’s not afraid to throw a punch when it’s needed. Plus she pisses of the far left AND the far right. And that’s a good sign. I’ll gladly vote for her in ’16. Prior to that, Obama, meh, Romney, meh.

  16. If Obama is re-elected Hillary will have to stay on to protect her own reputation and political future. She knows how this WH works. When the Libya story is finally tried in the congressional hearings and press after the election, she cannot allow herself to be a civilian outsider the administration can paint as the scapegoat for the mistakes made in Benghazi and the resultant need to blame someone.

  17. Please Hillary …………….. just go! You and Obama can open up a consulting business specializing in losing elections or something.

  18. She’s not leaving, she only has 4 U.S. dead, Bill had 18 at Mogadishu. That leaves her with at least 14 more to kill just to tie her husband.

  19. Why do these ass holes in white house question hillary being there, they aren’t going to be there, maybe Romney has decided to keep her jay needs to be looking for another job, he really sucks anyway.

  20. hillary clinton should be fired she has blood on her hands along with obama they knew in real time america lost four americans thanks to the both of them where the hell are the vermin in the press they should be asking tough questions this is bigger than water gate

  21. Clintons are now removing the current White House occupant with surgical precision. And the patient is totally unaware and incapable of changing the course he is on.
