If the next Presidential election grants me no other boon, I sincerely wish that it will grant me the Presidential candidacy of former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. To borrow one of President Barack Obama’s favorite phrases, “let me be clear”: I want Hillary Clinton to run for President as badly as Obama wants to birdie the 9th at Doral. Before you compose an angry email to Mr. Livingston demanding I be consigned to an eternity of serving as Oprah Winfrey’s towel boy, allow me to elaborate.
It’s official, kids. President Barack Obama lied to the American people about the events surrounding the al-Qaida-planned and led attack on the compound in Benghazi; notably the murders of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glenn Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods.

Let us all thank Representative Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) for the latest reminder that there are no depths so low that liberals haven’t plumbed, roughed-in and constructed Section 8 housing in them. In a fundraising email, the lawmaker appears to equate the Tea Party with the Ku Klux Klan.

One day,one of your employees walks into your office, proclaiming he has a great idea. His plan is insane, unworkable and even dangerous. You start to deny his request. But he grins and says: “I’m not asking you. I’m telling you. Since you hired me, I can do whatever I want.”
It never occurs to liberals that conservative opposition to President Obama’s daily drumbeat of disgrace and dishonesty is actually a product of revulsion at his tendency to behave like a cheap knockoff of one of those old guys who used to own the Soviet Union. And it never occurs to some liberals that MSNBC’s poor showing is actually a product of a lineup comprised of racist filth, talking hairdos and the essentially-unwatchable daytime filler the network features instead of actual news.

Michele Bachmann mentions “end times,” and Democrats go ballistic. It strikes me that some folks can’t wait to pounce on gaffes made by prominent Republican women. I’d call that a “war on women” were it not for the fact that the Democrats seem to be fighting pretty much everyone these days — except al-Qaida.
