“When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” the moderator asks.
“Well, I really see — that was good — that’s why he wins prizes. Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton. Some of what hasn’t been finished may go on to be finished, so when President Obama asked me to be Secretary of State I agreed,” Clinton responded.
Keep going. It was a two minute response. She discussed the stabilization of relations with China and Europe, and several others. Her accomplishments as secretary of state are obvious. Let's not forget she was the face of US foreign policy following the greatest catastrophe in US foreign policy history - the Bush Doctrine.

If you don't have anything other than love affairs with FOX commentators (glad you at least recognize that they AREN'T journalists) then maybe YOU should just go back & dream. There have been more hearings on Benghazi than there have been jobs bills passed. Not 1 single 1 has turned up anything other than lies, redacted e-mails & innuendo...the congressperson who keeps heading these hearings is so dirty that I am not sure any baths could clean him up. But thanks for playing anyway.
That GOP congressman has spent over $100 million on those hearings and another $17 million on the IRS bullshit. Results? NOTHING. Add in the billions wasted trying to repeal a law that couldn't be repealed and you get "the party of fiscal responsibility."

First Chicago, now the nation, sees a shriveling middle class
04/04/2014

Chicago’s middle class has shriveled under decades of Democratic mayors — and the same trend is accelerating nationwide while President Barack Obama is in the White House.

Since 2008, the percentage of Americans who describe themselves as middle class has lurched down from 53 percent to 44 percent, while the number of people who see themselves as lower class has rocketed up from 25 percent to 40 percent, according to a January report by the Pew Research Center.

The change in national attitudes has been particularly sharp among younger Americans, who have been hit hard by the recession. In March 2014, for example, the unemployment rate for 20- to 24-year-olds climbed from 11.9 percent to 12.2 percent.

“In 2008, a quarter of all young adults identified as being in the lower or lower-middle class; today about twice as many do (49%), a 24-point increase,” Pew reported.“In contrast, the share of adults 65 and older who say they are in the lower classes increased by 10 points to 31%.”

Accomplishments? She's got a few. And when measured against the likes of Rick Perry, Michele Bachman, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul and whatever other idiot you dumbasses trot up as the sacrificial lamb, she's the MOST ACCOMPLISHED PERSON ON THE PLANET. And she's already the most admired woman on the planet. Sorry.

Calm down, sweetheart, there's no need to shout. Your emotional hysteria clouds your understanding.

It wasn't "tea bagger bullshit" denigrating Hillary's lack of accomplisment. It was Hillary herself who blathered and stuttered in trying to name her accomplishments during the time Barack Hussein Obama dismissed her from the country.

She was a carpet bagging Senator with no remarkable legislation to her name, she is married to a likeable but lying man who dishonors her repeatedly, she lost the Democratic presidential primary as a front runner to a man with an even less impressive Senate career and she has no signature foreign affairs accomplishment.

From your wikipedia link: "Clinton strongly supported the 2001 U.S. military action in Afghanistan" and "Clinton voted in favor of the October 2002 Iraq War Resolution" and "She was at the forefront of the U.S. response to the Arab Spring." Little wonder she hemmed and hawed while trying to list her foreign affairs accomplishments.

None of your posts can be taken seriously when you make appallingly uneducated statements like: "she's the MOST ACCOMPLISHED PERSON ON THE PLANET."

How do you get this confused? I said she is the most admired woman on the planet, which is a fact. Second, your admitting that George Bush is an admitted international war criminal is progress. Third, most democrats voted for the Iraq war - based on Bush's manufactured lies. And she was definitely at the forefront of the Arab Spring. That's a good thing.

Now, can you please name ONE REPUBLICAN who can challenge her for the presidency?

This Video Reeks of GOP DNA: The GOP still doesn't "get" the Internet, and if there's one thing the Internet prides itself on, it's sniffing out a phony. This video, though not broadcast quality, is a damn good piece of work that has perfect edits that sounds like it's a leftover from one of McCain's unused A/V hit pieces from '08.

If the GOP operatives ( America Rising ) who created this video were really internet savvy, they would have used more familiar copyrighted material like a true guerilla YouTube amateur.

Take a look and judge for yourself but don't be surprised when it turns out a guy named Dick who's last name rhymes with Army is one of the persons responsible for this "grassroots" effort.

This video filmed by America Rising: An Open Letter to Democrat Politicians originally appeared on You Tube and the video was pulled by the person who posted it and the account was shut down.

Looks like they're already putting the fear mongering into high gear to get ready for the elections this year. My question is why didn't the person who produced this want their name attached to it?

Hell, they don't even mention the moderators name ?

You wont think that a reputable company making videos in this day and age would be high definition and done professionally, not by a Wal Mart cell phone with hurky jerky motions for the entire video.

I guess Faux Noise and the Daily Caller could latch on to this video for their puppets to see. After all their audience believes everything they tell them.

They're old and dumb. They don't really get anything unless it's god, guns or gays.

They can't grasp technology, because they lack youth.
They can't understand comedy, because they have little intelligence.
They have no style, because the gay community refuses to help them.
They don't even have music, except classic rock (sans Bruce), because they hate minorities and poor people (the originators of all music).
They can't win elections because they run certifiable nutcases (Bachman, Perry, Santorum) against Nobel prize-wining constitutional law professors from Harvard.

But, you have to admit, it is funny to watch them try these things.

Vote fraud as ‘payback time’
March 28, 2014
Ballot abuse strikes at the heart of self-government

Melowese Richardson is the poster girl for vote fraud.

The Ohio poll worker was sentenced last July to five years in prison after being convicted of voting twice in the 2012 election and voting three times – in 2008, 2011 and 2012 – in the name of her sister, in a coma since 2003, according to USA Today.

This might be below Chicago graveyard standards, but it's still impressive. Ms. Richardson has become a heroine to the left, which is working with its legal arm – the U.S. Justice Department – to kill voter photo-ID laws in order to ensure that creative voting continues.

"Richardson was previously convicted of threatening to kill a witness in a criminal case against her brother; of stealing; of drunken driving; and of beating someone in a bar fight," The Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

When sentenced for vote fraud, she was unbowed, claiming to be a victim of racism.

Assistant prosecutor Bill Anderson, however, saw it differently: "[She] is an ideologue who was hell-bent on stuffing the ballot box with as many Obama votes as possible."

So, you have a problem with that? The Rev. Al Sharpton doesn't. He and Ohio Democrats hailed Ms. Richardson at a March 20 rally in Cincinnati following her release after serving eight months of her five-year term for voter fraud.

Sarah Palin slams Ryan budget, hints at 2016 plans
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is not impressed with U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposed budget.
Palin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday the spending plan would increase spending by nearly $1.2 trillion over 10 years.
“Bless his heart. He probably has more faith in politicians than I do, because I’ve been in this political arena on the local, state and now national level for a long time,” Palin said.“Future congressmen and women don’t have to obey what today’s congressmen and women wish for in terms of budget cuts that may happen in 10 years.”
Americans still wanted Palin to run, Hannity said, asking whether she was considering any particular race.
“Not for Senate this go-around, no,” Palin said.“But in the meantime, I’m gonna be out and about, across the country, getting, hopefully, the right people at least on the map, perhaps some underdogs, some unknowns, running for the right reasons.”
Read about when Hannity ask Palin if she still wanted to run ??? LMAO!
She couldn't fulfill her old job as Governor, so she quit !!!

Paul Ryan's 'Joke' Budget Doesn't Go Far Enough For Sarah Palin
House Budget Chair Paul Ryan (R-WI) released his budget blueprint on Tuesday -- April Fools' Day -- and even though the proposal was real, it gave Sarah Palin quite a shock.
"The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke," Palin wrote in a Facebook post. "But it really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem; it STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY, instead of speculating years out that some future Congress and White House may possibly, hopefully, eh-who-knows, take responsibility for today’s budgetary selfishness and shortsightedness to do so. THIS is the definition of insanity."
Ryan's budget slashes Medicare under Obamacare and contains deep cuts to social programs, but according to Palin those measures won't sufficiently balance the budget. She invoked the Wisconsin Badgers, headed to the NCAA men's basketball Final Four, as an example of the "sacrificial work ethic and discipline" she thinks Ryan would do well to learn form.
"The solution is staring us in the face," the former vice presidential candidate wrote. "We need to rein in spending today, and don’t tell me there is nothing to cut when we know every omnibus bill is loaded with pork and kickbacks."
Folks, you cant make this shit up !

Paul Ryan's plan to destroy America's poor and disabled and the elderly.

&#9726;Slash basic food aid provided by SNAP by at least $135 billion and convert the program to a block grant. The Ryan budget includes every major benefit cut in the harsh SNAP bill that the House passed in September, which CBO estimated would end benefits to 3.8 million low-income people in 2014. The budget also would block-grant SNAP in 2019, with further steep funding cuts. States would be left to decide whose benefits to cut -- poor children, working-poor parents, seniors, people with disabilities, or others struggling to make ends meet. They would have no good choices, as SNAP provides an average of only $1.40 per person per meal.
&#9726;Make it harder for low-income students to attend college. Ryan proposes to cut Pell Grants by more than $125 billion over the next decade. He would freeze the maximum grant for ten years, even as college tuition costs continue to rise. The maximum Pell Grant already covers less than a third of college costs, compared to more than half in earlier decades. Yet under the Ryan budget, the grant would fall another 24 percent by 2024 in inflation-adjusted dollars.(Some of that reduction is in the budget baseline, but Ryan would substantially enlarge it.) He also would make some moderate-income students who get modest help from Pell Grants today entirely ineligible.
&#9726;Make massive unspecified cuts in a part of the budget in which low-income programs -- including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which Ryan praised in his recent poverty report -- make up a substantial share of the expenditures. His budget calls for at least $500 billion in cuts to mandatory programs other than Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, SNAP, Pell Grants, farm programs, civil service programs, and veterans' benefits. A substantial share of spending in this category is for low-income programs, including the EITC, the low-income component of the Child Tax Credit, the school lunch and other child nutrition programs, and Supplemental Security Income, which helps very poor people who are elderly or have serious disabilities.[Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, 4/1/14]

Five years after the end of the Great Recession, our economic recovery is plodding, not because of massive deficits (which are not currently massive -- they have fallen faster than at any point in the last 60 years), but due to a lack of aggregate demand. In a demand-starved economy like ours, public spending has a high multiplier effect, meaning that for each dollar the government spends, more than a dollar is added to the economy. This is especially true when that public spending is allocated in such a way that it can circulate quickly throughout the economy -- for example, through low-income support programs (which are automatic stabilizers) or infrastructure investments that would create jobs rapidly.

For that reason, pulling back spending in today's economic environment, as Chairman Ryan proposes, would have a deleterious effect on the economy and jobs. On net, I estimate that the House budget resolution would decrease GDP by 0.9 percent and decrease nonfarm payrolls by 1.1 million jobs in fiscal year 2015, relative to CBO's current-law baseline. The following fiscal year, when Ryan's cuts to discretionary spending kick in, "The Path to Prosperity" would decrease GDP by 2.5 percent and cost 3.0 million jobs. And if the recovery remains sluggish, large job losses could continue under the Ryan budget in 2017 and beyond.[EPI, 4/1/14]

And on a closing note:
The Republican budget for 2015, released Tuesday by Representative Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, will never come close to being law, so it doesn't have to pretend to be serious. This is a document designed solely to be reduced to a few bullet points so House Republicans can have something to show their most antigovernment voters.
That might work in their most carefully gerrymandered districts, but does the Republican Party really want to coalesce around a budget this destructive to the country's future: harming the middle class and the poor; undercutting popular safety-net programs, including Medicare and Pell grants; and heaping tax benefits on the rich? Apparently it does, and the full House will probably support it in a few days. Voters should look closely at the details to see if they would choose the same course.
[...]
Mr. Ryan hopes to be promoted to the helm of the Ways and Means Committee now that its chairman, Dave Camp, has announced his retirement. That would put a man with very dangerous ideas in a position to do serious damage to the tax code and the safety net, which Ways and Means controls. His budget is mostly an exercise in grandstanding right now, but, in a short time, it could become a pathway to something far worse.[The New York Times, 4/1/14]
Yes, folks, a lot of teabaggers are on board with Ryan's plan, are you?
