This little town hadn't seen a president since Harry Truman stopped here - that is, until the other day, 10 administrations, three wars and more than 14,000 days later, when Bill Clinton stood up on a flatbed ...

The Democrats are, after all, the party of Gov. George Corely Wallace, segregationist Sen. Al Gore Sr. and former KKK member Sen. Robert Byrd.

They're happy to continually reap 90+ per cent of the black knee jerk vote -- just so long as they remember to stay in their place on the great Democrat plantation.

The thought of this guy being within 2,000 miles of the Oval Office is enough to curdle milk. Nothing like having an impeached former president who was convicted for perjury out on the campaign trail. When Hillary talks of having a lot of baggage, that suitcase has two legs and a red nose.

38 general and flag officers who have endorsed Hillary Clinton to be the Nation’s next President and Commander-in-Chief. Senator Clinton has received five more endorsements in recent days, including those of General Henry Hugh Shelton, the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral William Owens, the former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and Army Major General Antonio M. Taguba. Overall she has the endorsement of two former chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, five admirals and generals at the four-star rank. They are in addition to over 2,000 veterans and military retirees who are members of Senator Clinton’s national and state veterans’ steering committees.We've seen the tragic result of having a president who had neither the experience nor the wisdom to manage our foreign policy and safeguard our national security, Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, among party's most respected voices on foreign policy after 35 years in the Senate and stated that as a senator, Clinton joined the Armed Services Committee in 2003, a post that burnished her national-security credentials. She is conscientious, she took hold and showed a good understanding" of security issues. Hillary Clinton has done her homework on national security, She has the big picture and is the most qualified in the race to be Commander-in-Chief.- General Wesley Clark. I think Hillary Clinton is the best person and the best prepared to be Commander-in-Chief.- Admiral William Owens. I support her because I trust her, I trust her judgment, She knows our reality, She'll give us missions that make sense.- Lt. Gen. Claudia J. Kennedy. Obama said he felt his strongest foreign relations experience came from spending four years overseas as a child, Obamas has spent his time on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on speeches and inspirational trips than on investigations and aggressive oversight. Obama took charge of the European affairs subcommittee didn’t seize the opportunity to scrutinize the Bush administration. The too busy senator did not lead a single policy hearing on ANY of the hot topics in the panel’s jurisdiction: missile defense, counterterrorism and concern over the waning commitment of European countries to NATO etc… Obama cannot be trusted with the future of our Great but Troubled country! The debate showed Obamas extreme lack of foreign affairs issues, he agreed with ALL of Hillary answers, why? Because he just doesn’t know. Ex; Amazingly the question of Russia and Obama had no clue! Hillary showed that she knew the upcoming president of Russia and the issues about him in addition to many others issues like Cuba etc... We cannot afford a bobble head in the White House. We MUST have experience to deal with what we already know and of course what we don’t. Mainstream media is helping hide his corrupt campaign finance donors, awful voting record in the senate and true lack of experience with dealing with foreign leaders. Most all foreign leaders respect the Clintons, on day one Hillary has a better chance of bringing those leaders to talk than Hussen Obama the media made fairy tale.

To: Generals Endorse Clinton...

Your girl has been ordered to testify in court after the election. The rest of the trial will be well underway. It is absolutely SHOCKING that the Clintons maintain support after making a mockery of the Presidency!

Here is a FUTURE HEADLINE....

President-elect Hillary Clinton will testify soon in a trial for campaign fraud during her senatorial run. She has hinted that she cannot remember much about the affair but may have misspoken or not completely conveyed the facts as she once knew them to be. Also, she said that despite the same name...there is no relation to former President Bill Clinton, also involved in the case. She reminded us that '...Clinton is a fairly common name, like Smith..' and although she may have met him once or twice she does not recall him contributing financially to her campaign. Finally, she noted that campaign fraud is a serious matter which is why she will continue to fight, as she always has, for transparency and accountability in all areas of the government.

EXACTLY. But you just have to give Bill his due. He is a shrewd dude. And you know what... Clintons know AMERICA who they view as basically paranoid and racist. I would never have thought they could play people like they have been. You have to give him his due.

Here are some scanarios...
1. President-elect Hillary Clinton has to step down after being found guilty in Clinton v. Paul.

2. President-elect Hillary Clinton today talked about pardoning her husband should he get convicted in the Clinton v. Paul trial....for a small fee of course.

3. President-elect Hillary Clinton tries to persuade the rules committee that you actuall CAN still be president and be in JAIL. She is a fighter and pioneer for womens rights everywhere!!

They endorse her because she backs Bush on the war and Generals love war, without it they have no job. Go Hillary! Continue the Bush legacy and start dropping bombs.

Bill Clinton is not campaigning for his wife; he is campaigning for himself. He is campaigning for a third term, and the so-called "working class" is buying this obvious deception. He and his wife amassed 109m dollars in eight years, now Hilary wants to top it with another 109m dollars in the next eight years. This is all that their campaign is about. And the poor people are helping them. This is what is called the false consciousness of the proletarians, who often allow politicians to put veils on their critical reason.

Why, Bubba must think he's George Wallace of Alabama who put up his wife Lurleen to be governor in his place when he couldn't run any more, or James Ferguson of Texas, whose wife Ma Ferguson took over for him when he was impeached.

So, here's Bubba Bill hiding behind Hill's skirt, thinking she must be able to be president because he can't.

My, oh my. Is this all we know?

So why is it politically correct to call small-town, white-collar residents "Bubbas"? No one seems to cry foul at this label. But if anyone were to throw out other labels and terms for other American cultures, people (namely the Democratic party) are quick to kick and scream that those are racist and degrading comments that are hurtful. What gives?

Wow, I've just read your two "comments" and I'm wondering what sort of drugs you are taking. Bush/McCain wants to stay in Iraq indefinitely (100 years) and Clinton wants out now. Yet somehow you feel that this is the same thing.

Yes, I would be "Very Concerned" if I had your view on life. How dare you make a mockery of her fight for the right of a women to be president??!!

I know Kevin. I wrote an earlier comment on this and it somehow disappeared.

I don't care what any of you say. Bill Clinton was one of the best presidents this country has seen. If he could run again, I'd vote for him without hesitation.

GO HILLARY!
