Newt Gingrich: If Hillary Clinton Runs In 2016, Republicans 'Incapable Of Competing'
""Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regularly brushes off the idea of a 2016 presidential bid. But if she were to run, at least one prominent Republican thinks his party would be completely outmatched.
"The Republican party is incapable of competing at that level," Gingrich said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet The Press."
"First of all, she's very formidable as a person," he said. "She's a very competent person. She's married to the most popular Democrat in the country; they both think [it] would be good for her to be president. It makes it virtually impossible to stop her for the nomination."
In addition to having Bill Clinton's support, Hillary Clinton would also have the backing of President Barack Obama, who will still be a "relatively popular president," Gingrich added. "Trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl."
Most people agree with Gingrich's assessment. A recent Washington Post poll found that 57 percent of people would support Clinton as a 2016 presidential candidate.""

Looks like Bush will be the last Republiclown President.
As well as the worst President in American History.

"...DUI is the league's biggest legal issue. A study by the San Diego Union-Tribune found that 112 of the 385 NFL player arrests (29 percent) between 2000 and 2008 involved drunk driving."

Everyone knows Medicare has some time left before it implodes upon itself with the influx of baby boomers and not enough revenues from too many people not paying taxes because they don't have jobs.

Obama not only likes the status quo but he's making sure the burden of paying for the additional 30 million more falls directly on the shoulders of taxpayers who have to work to support them.

But this is what you wanted.

Another Fox News lie. He did not advocate killing or torturing American soldiers and their family members. He was speaking out against George Bush's torture and murder of detainees in Guantanimo Bay in Cuba. Like most Americans, President Obama agrees with his views on those unconstituional practices and put an end to it.

The buzz Sunday was about whether outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be one to beat for the Democratic nomination in 2016.

It begins with a New York Times article titled, "Clinton's Countless Choices Hinge on One: 2016," that speculates on her future after she exits the secretary of state's office, especially on the possibility of a presidential campaign.

"For the moment, Mrs. Clinton may appear to be a figure of nearly limitless possibility, and her name has come up for prestigious jobs: president of Yale University, head of George Soros's foundation. But being Hillary Clinton is never a simple matter, and her next few years are less a blank check than an equation with multiple variables.

Romney's plan for reform wouldn't have been put into effect for another 15 years. Present day seniors and those on the threshold of retirement wouldn't have been affected like now in San Diego. In 15 years, those who didn't need government help could have chosen better coverage through private insurers. Everyone else could still have had a choice between more affordable private insurance with better coverage with some government subsidy or full government subsidy with less coverage but still covered.
It was a much better plan. It would have saved taxpayers a lot of money.
Unfortunately, because of a 47% slip of the tongue and Hurricane Sandy, we're already starting to see Obama's plan in action and the mistake of reelecting him.
More and more physicians are already declining Medicare patients. There will be another government mandate, stringent fines and government interference forcing physicians to comply.
Is this what we really wanted with health care reform?
Call an insurance company today and ask them how much a full coverage health insurance plan would cost for someone 65 or older. There is no such insurance. Between the ages of 54 and 64 there is a denial rate of insurance request of almost 25%. How high do you believe the denial rate would be if companies go above 65.
One thing I have never understood from the anti ObamaCare crowd is why do all of you wish to give insurance companies hundreds of millions per year to be a middleman? Make Medicare the universal health care for everyone with cost based on income and the problem is solved.

Wait'll the under 58k OWS'er types, working those lower paying jobs, unable to afford outlandish free market healthcare insurance prices, figure out the robbinghoodietic screwing they're in for in 2013.

“There is a growing group of folks who are looking at this and realizing we don’t have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year’s end,” Sen. Corker said. “So a lot of people are putting forth a theory, and I think it has merit, where you go ahead and give the president the rate increase on the top 2 percent.

Well, you'd have to convince me and every credible source out there who state otherwise.

People with Alzheimer's are just fine all the way up until being diagnosed and, even then, the symptoms aren't that noticeable until they gradually develop over the next six years.

Reagan wasn't diagnosed with Alzheimer's until 5 years after his presidency.

Anyone could have unmistakingly seen with their own eyes the symptoms of Alzheimer's by the end of Reagan's second term if what you say is true. After four years of being diagnosed with Alzheimer's, Bush, Sr. would have had to step in. It would have been clear to everyone.

Maybe you've never been around someone with Alzheimer's four years after their initial diagnosis.

Apparently, you haven't.

Good post Carol, Another is Medicare was set up not unlike SS. The thinking in 1932 was there would be more to come along to support them. Then the advent of Birth Control and we weren't even replacing those that died.

SOME of us have been PRO a program similar--similar being KEY--because it's not right to TOUCH the programs that some have worked and PAID their entire lives into for YEARS.

In recent days, Boehner has called repeatedly on Obama to respond to an offer the GOP laid out last week. By Friday, a frustrated Boehner was complaining that, while the two sides continued to talk, there was “no progress to report.”

It was not immediately clear whether that changed Sunday. But with written proposals from both sides now on the table, senior aides say the elements of a deal are coming into focus:
