    The Plot To Make Hillary President

    November 25, 2011 by Chip Wood


    Democratic leaders Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen wrote an opinion piece detailing why Barack Obama should withdraw from the 2012 race.​

    Here’s some news that could turn the entire election upside down. Leading Democrats are urging Barack Hussein Obama to withdraw as a candidate for re-election in 2012, as Lyndon Baines Johnson did almost 50 years ago.

    The campaign to get Obama to quit the race kicked into high gear on Monday, when influential Democratic leaders Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen wrote a lengthy piece for The Wall Street Journal on why Obama should withdraw.

    Here’s part of what they said:
    “[Obama] should abandon his candidacy for re-election in favor of a clear alternative, one capable not only of saving the Democratic Party, but more important, of governing effectively and in a way that preserves the most important of the president’s accomplishments.”

    Who would they have run instead? Get ready for their totally predictable pitch:

    “He should step aside for the one candidate who would become, by acclamation, the nominee of the Democratic Party: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

    I’ll spare you the hundreds of words that follow as the two Democratic pollsters make their case “as patriots and Democrats.” Let me go directly to their conclusion:

    “If President Obama is not willing to seize the moral high ground and step aside, then the two Democratic leaders in Congress, Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, must urge the president not to seek re-election—for the good of the party and most of all for the good of the country. And they must present the only clear alternative—Hillary Clinton.”

    The Democrats’ political idol, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, said: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” Does anyone want to bet that this is all part of a plan?

    On to part two of my “you’d better hope this doesn’t happen” scenario. I have a neighbor I like to call a yellow dog Republican. He doesn’t care who the Republican nominee is; he’d vote for a yellow dog, if necessary, if the cur could beat Obama.

    My friend’s greatest fear is that Donald Trump will spend $100 million of his own money on a third-party candidacy. “That is all it would take,” my friend is convinced, “to guarantee a Republican defeat.”

    I’m not so sure I agree with him. I’d like to think that enough voters will see past The Donald’s enormous ego and inflated self-importance and cast their votes more wisely. But there is no question that Trump would love all the media attention and public adulation he would receive if he ran.

    No question, The Donald would make the race more interesting. Will he be the spoiler who keeps Barack Obama in the White House? I don’t think so. But we’ve got almost a full year ahead of us; surely there will be other surprises: some pleasant, some unpleasant.

    Lastly, let’s review what seems to be a terrible case of self-induced suicide on the part of potential Republican nominees. It began with Rick Perry’s embarrassing brain freeze, when he could remember only two of the three Federal agencies he wants to abolish. (The biggest laugh of the evening came when Ron Paul, standing next to him, leaned over and offered to list five agencies that should be done away with.) Perry’s gaffe, along with a few less-serious stumbles, led to a flash-crash in his polls.

    Then there’s poor Herman Cain. When asked what his policy would be regarding Libya, for a while he looked like he didn’t even know it was a country, much less where it was. Cain is the first to admit that he’s not a foreign-policy maven, but surely he can do better than blank out. Can’t he recite rehearsed sound bites for at least a minute or two?
    I will say that he seemed to get bigger, stronger and tougher when he was asked about the four women who have accused him of sexual harassment. I wonder how many people believe his denials. Do you think most people believe that where there’s smoke there must be fire? Oh, and does anyone find it curious that all four of his accusers come from Chicago? Remember what FDR said about a plan.

    That brings me to the coming-from-behind, white-haired wonder who is challenging Mitt Romney at the top of the polls. A few months ago, Newt Gingrich’s candidacy had been written off for dead — not just by many observers, but by almost all of the people on his staff, who deserted him en mass.

    Gingrich certainly has proven the importance of persistence, hasn’t he? He’s also proved the value of a brilliant mind and a glib tongue. When he asked one audience whom they would prefer to see debate Obama, he knew he would be the odds-on favorite. Even I would like to see that.

    But poor Newt; like Desi Arnaz used to say to Lucille Ball, he’s got a whole lot of ’splainin’ to do. He can start with why Freddie Mac paid his think tank more than $1.6 million for some “consulting” work. The idea that Gingrich was paid $300,000 an hour to give a history lesson — which was his first explanation — is so ludicrous that it’s hard to believe he said it with a straight face.

    Whatever you think should happen, we’ve got a long way to go. The first primaries are almost two months away; the nominating convention is more than six months hence. There are certain to be a lot more blunders, baloney and BS between now and then.

    Still, if you’ve got a favorite, better increase your efforts (and your contributions) now. Whoever it is needs all the help he or she can get.
    More on this next week. Until then, keep some powder dry.

    maybe so maybe not

    I still believe there are others behind this fool pulling the strings. If that is possible, then him being forced to step down for the good of the Demoncratic party could happen. Or maybe he will Foster out on us. One can hope.

    George Soros' hairy hand is straight up The Illegal Kenyan's skinny backside, for sure - and likely many more "international banksters". WhenTIK sent all that 'stimulus' money overseas, WHERE did it go....? To the huge Foreign Banks.
    TIK has been bought and sold cheap many years ago. He's been groomed, the grin painted onto his wooden Howdy Doody face, the snazzy suit fitted - and the Dummy is ready for the stage. Mr. Soros can make the Puppet speak, and his mouth doesn't move. The Puppet voices the lines inthe script, via the First Teleprompter, and the Satanic Soros is pleased. Occasionaly the strings get tangled - only so much room inside that wooden head - and The Puppet says something Epically Stupid....... But until The Puppet truly embarrasses not just his Party, but the Puppetmaster himself, the wooden wonder will be trotted out on the Presidential Gameshow Stage once again.......

    I still say Hillary should be barred from running. Just seems to me that allowing the wife of a two term president run sets a bad precedent allowing a term limit work around.

    And, Shrillery reads from the same manifesto as The Puppet. Little would change - we'd just get a scowling bad-tempered Puppet In Chief instead of the smug grinning idiot we have now. Net LOSE for the American People.

    I like that Hitlery I will have to put that one in my book. What really makes it bad she is the one who step down then told the zobies that was following her to vote for him. So she screwed us once by giving us O-duba$$ and now she could possibally scew us again. I thought rape was illegal in the US.

    O No Brainer step down ? How would he be able to afford almost 7,000,000.00 a year in vacations ? Billary take the run ? Not likely, as she would be accepting the bone from O No Brainer now wouldn't she ?
