Barack Obama, our next President

The New York Post brings us a touching passage from Ed Klein's new book, "Blood Feud," in which Bill Clinton plans his death to provide maximum political benefit for Hillary:.

“I’m worried how my health will affect your campaign,” he said.“I have to do all I can to prepare the campaign playbooks, but I also have to accept the fact that if I fall by the wayside, you have to continue without me and make a positive thing out of it.”
A positive thing?” Hillary said.“What the hell are you talking about?”.

“Obviously, you have to have a big state funeral for me, with as much pomp and circumstance as possible,” he said.“I’m thinking maybe I should be buried at Arlington [National Cemetery] rather than at my library in Little Rock. After all, I was commander in chief for eight years and have every right to be buried at Arlington.”

“Bill!” Hillary said, trying to interrupt his train of thought.
“I’m going to plan this thing out in detail,” he said.

“I don’t want to hear this!” Hillary said.

“Wear your widow’s weeds, so people will feel sympathy for you. Wear black for a decent mourning period and make my death an asset. The images on television of the funeral and the grieving widow in black will be priceless.

“When I’m gone, people will think only of my good points and forgive, if not forget, the bad. I’ll be remembered in a positive light more in death than I was in life. That always happens. Everybody knows that. So you’ll have to take maximum advantage of my death.”

Klein might actually have done Hillary a favor here - this is the closest she's seemed to a sympathetic human being since she launched her book tour, responding to Bill's morbid obsession over using his own corpse as a political prop with appropriate horror.

This obsession with building hardcore political power around First Ladies seems to be a Democrat obsession for the moment - how does Senator Michelle Obama grab you, citizens of Illinois?- but imagine the reaction if a Republican power couple had a conversation like this. If George Bush had been caught talking about staging his death to fetch an extra two million sympathy votes for Laura's presidential campaign, the reaction in the media would be disgust and loathing for both of them, no matter how much Laura protested the idea. We'd be told it was proof that they're soulless and power-hungry, not to mention their evident low opinion of American voters as a bunch of easily-manipulated emotional ninnies.

But when you're a Democrat, the by-any-means-necessary thirst for power is no big deal, because your fellow travelers approve of people with the Right Ideas doing whatever it takes to get the power necessary to implement them.

I don't understand. If they crossed over from Mexico then send them back to Mexico.
If the corrupt Mexicans don't want them back then charge them a holding fee like, say,$2 Billion per year to start.
The federal government just can't send the children back to Mexico because of a law pushed for & signed by George W Bush.

Care to elaborate DUH A Vey....
Here..I'll start it for you....
(quote) "In 1984 and 1988, the Senate passes bills that would lift major restrictions under Glass-Steagall, but in each case the House blocks passage. In 1991, the Bush administration puts forward a repeal proposal, winning support of both the House and Senate Banking Committees, but the House again defeats the bill in a full vote. And in 1995, the House and Senate Banking Committees approve separate versions of legislation to get rid of Glass-Steagall, but conference negotiations on a compromise fall apart.
Attempts to repeal Glass-Steagall typically pit insurance companies, securities firms, and large and small banks against one another, as factions of these industries engage in turf wars in Congress over their competing interests and over whether the Federal Reserve or the Treasury Department and the Comptroller of the Currency should be the primary banking regulator.
Oct.-Nov. 1999
Congress passes Financial Services Modernization Act
After 12 attempts in 25 years, Congress finally repeals Glass-Steagall, rewarding financial companies for more than 20 years and $300 million worth of lobbying efforts. Supporters hail the change as the long-overdue demise of a Depression-era relic.
On Oct. 21, with the House-Senate conference committee deadlocked after marathon negotiations, the main sticking point is partisan bickering over the bill's effect on the Community Reinvestment Act, which sets rules for lending to poor communities. Sandy Weill calls..... President Clinton in the evening to try to break the deadlock after Senator Phil Gramm, chairman of the Banking Committee, warned Citigroup lobbyist Roger Levy that Weill has to get White House moving on the bill or he would shut down the House-Senate conference. Serious negotiations resume, and a deal is announced at 2:45 a.m. on Oct. 22. Whether Weill made any difference in precipitating a deal is unclear.
On Oct. 22, Weill and John Reed issue a statement congratulating Congress and President Clinton, including 19 administration officials and lawmakers by name.
The House AND Senate approve a final version of the bill on Nov. 4, and Clinton signs it into law later that month.(unquote)
Gramm Leach Bliley Act. I have some news, those three were Republicans.

Where are we moving forward to?
Forward to where the economy was prior to the Bush administration? Forward to get out of two Bush quagmire wars? Forward to addressing major issues like climate change & Immigration?

Name one thing Republicans have done to help American since Jan of 2009.

Name anything, anything at all, the Tea Party has done to help America.

If you followed this logically instead of blaming Bush every other breath why not realize the phony SECURE BORDERS are not secure and we are being invaded.

Every decision this president makes brings in to sharp focus his lack of wisdom.

I don't recall Clinton, Obama or Biden being pro war and pro draft like, let's say Mitt Romney who also didn't serve.
George HW Bush and John McCain served in combat, Nixon and Ford in logistical areas and Reagan risked life and limb on Hollywood's back lots making VD movies for the Army.
George W. Bush used his daddy's influence to get a safe stateside assignment.

The children are mostly Honduran and El Salvadoran with family members in the US. They are being brought through Mexico by agents, for a fee.
