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. What has Hillary Clinton accomplished as Secretary of State? In fact what has the State Department accomplished? I can’t think of anything off hand.
    It would be nice if she went back to Arkansas/or Illinois. I always thought
    she is overrated, just as Obama is.

    1. Drink alot of foreign beer and party like a rock star.

      I’m sorry, I didn’t realize that you were thinking of real State Department accomplishments. Tried think of them, but my mind goes blank. After all, it is a very short list.

  2. Hillary, it is time to tell the truth about Benghazi. Obviously Obama has thrown you under the bus, not just for now, but for all time.

  3. Madame Hilarious…The second half of the ultra Machiavellian “Team Clinton”…Understands well..Hold your enemies close…Hold your FRIENDS even closer…..LOL Bit of a turn there..but what the hell..Later folks

  4. Stick finger in the air and see which way it’s blowing
    Hillary is a fraud – she always has been, always will be
    … and she has blood on her hands again

  5. What about “Ketchup Boy” and his aspirations to assume the mantle “Secretary of State”? If Hillary! sticks around (obviously if Obama wins), will Obama keep her on as a snub to Senator Heinz for his apparently poor job of prepping him for the debates?

  6. Silly you. Now that she’s taken the brunt of the fall for Obama, she can do anything she likes, and he’ll have to agree, or she’ll spill the beans. Way to go Hillary!

  7. He doesn’t even know if the Secretary of State is going to remain with the administration? What kind of an amateur is he? He is freaking running this country for God’s sake.

  8. Do not ever underestimate the power of ambition.

    In spite of her incompetence in handling the Arab Spring uprisings in North Africa;
    In spite of her political agenda, misleading the cause of four American deaths in Benghazi, including our Ambassador;
    In spite of her utter lack of diplomatic experience, other than to be the wife of an ex-President, if in name only;
    This woman feels that she still has power.

    Do not ever underestimate the power of ambition.

  9. Don’t worry America. Hilly is leaving on Jan 20, 2013. Only this time she gets to take silverware from the State Department cafeteria.

  10. How does this not surprise me? Obummer is once again leading (if you want to call what he does on the golf course or from a 5 star Las Vegas Resort, leading from behind? (the big “O” knows what a donkeys ASS looks like because he is leading from the BEHIND!!) Does he know what his staff’s intentions are? He is so stupid.

  11. born and raised in michigan

    I agree with all of these comments! Wish they would show these responses on the main stream media channels. Can we boot these people too ( Chris, Rachel, Mika, Lawrence, Rev. Al, etc. in January when Hillary, Barry and gang leave?! I seriously get high blood pressure when I turn them on for a split second!
    P.S. Where is my husband’s favorite – Keith Obermeyer? Busy campaigning for Barry? Poor thing, I think he was fired a while ago.

  12. I think what Ms. Hillary is doing is brilliant. She knows that there will be no 2016 bid, Mitt has that wrapped up if he wins 2012. The Klintons hate Obama with a viciousness only known to the recipients of those theoried “Arkancides” Knowing just how toxic she has become, this is her way of helping to ensure a defeat for Barren Von Obama. The only reason Bill Clinton is “supporting” Obama’s campaign is because some of his secrets were going to be exposed. By the way, does anyone know if Monica’s book has been released yet. It was supposed to have been by now but I’ve heard nothing about it.

    1. It was set for release, but the publisher discovered that all of the printed copes had a stain on the cover .. and no matter what they do, they can’t clean ’em up.

  13. Yet again…another display of the lack of communication within Obama’s team. Deplorable! If they can even figure out what is going on within their team how can they possible figure out what is going on with Americans? Lack of leadership!

  14. Hillary needs to Retire or look for another job because Obama is being given an early retirement on November 6th, to take effect January 20, 2013. Lots of government vacancies, and Romney’s binders are filling up quickly….

  15. Wait till the Gays find out ObaMao on the Down Low and HildaBeast picked to have the deliberately unprotected Stevens kidnapped because he was gay and then held for an exchange ransom so ObaMao could release the ‘blind Sheik’ (who first bombed the World Trade Center years ago)as the pre-election October Surprise so little barry soetero could look ‘presidential in foreign policy’!!!!

  16. After the benghazi diaster full of every lie imaginal hillary knows her so called legacy is a pathetic mess. She has no life to go back to, given who her disgraced husband is. Better to keep enjoying all the perks of sec of state, on our dime, by the way…..she has no life…

  17. Methinks she now has the upper hand and feels she can do anything she darn well wants to , even holding this Libya fiasco over Obama’s head! Power Play, Blackmail, you call it.

  18. Hillary Clinton is, by far, the most ineffective Secretary of State in the history of the United States. She has left a trail of missteps, bad decisions, a State Department in complete chaos. She hasn’t a snowball’s chance of continuing as SoS no matter who is elected POTUS in Nov.

  19. WAIT JUST A MINUTE…If Hilllary is claiming full responsibility for the failure to protect an American ambassador, shouldn’t Obama be expecting her resignation?

  20. They don’t even know how to manage their own personnel. Now that is scary. Of course they are capable of allowing Americans to be killed without remorse or shame.

  21. What do you mean stay on. Obama won’t be there Hillary, so pack your bags woman! It is over for all of you guys. Move to Saudi Arabia! All of you!!

  22. Hilary did a surprisingly good job at State until Libya.

    As for intimations of staying on, she is only saying that because it now appears Romney will win in a landslide (+10%), therefor she’s donned the dutiful soldier costume.

    Seeing big lib media reversing course in literally every poll one month before an election means the R is so far ahead, they need to erase the (+7%-11%) bias of their sample which was originally intended to discourage opponent turnout and psychologically sway the electorate. Since the self-fulfilling prophecy never took root, it is necessary to correct the data so to not serve as indisputable evidence of fraud after the actual votes have been tabulated.

    Otherwise, they create criminal liability for themselves.

    As to the guy above talking about offing the President: You, Sir, are an enemy of this constitutional republic. Talk like that is morally bankrupt and borderline criminal. I am literally ashamed (for you).

  23. Has the Mighty Bin Laden Hunter ever had a real press conference? Has he ever been asked a question that he did not know was coming?
    How come he hasn’t visited the 53rd to the 57th states?

  24. Watergate-Era Judiciary Chief of Staff: Hillary Clinton Fired For Lies, Unethical Behavior
    by Dan Calabrese

    As Hillary Clinton came under increasing scrutiny for her story about facing sniper fire in Bosnia, one question that arose was whether she has engaged in a pattern of lying.

    The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

    Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.

    “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

    NOW THE AUTO INDUSTRY THAT WAS SAVED BY OBAMA IS IN TROUBLE AGAIN … Jeep production in Toledo OH is likely to be moved to CHINA.


  26. I think she means if Romney is elected, she will stay and bless us with her continued presence. Great, we can have even more debacles like the Libyan embassy killings.
