“Look Mitt, there are only so many big money guys out there. You had your turn. Don’t harsh my campaign buzz.”
Well she’s been doing the rounds for a long time already. 29 of the Dow 30 have already sent checks her way. But more money is coming.
I wonder what our friends on the legitimate Left are going to do about this? In the end probably vote to perpetuate crony capitalism I suspect.
As we’ve said before, many interests are very keen on seeing a Hillary/Jeb or Christie or Romney race in 2016. For the crony class it will be a win either way.
The problem with Mr. Obama at this point is that he still thinks America has the problem, not him.
I can’t think of anything better for the country than a big government conservative with a predilection toward tariffs and cronyism running the show. Boy, that’s the way forward. I’m sure voters are going to fall all over themselves to vote for a guy like that. What we need is a leader who is a control freak on all fronts. Not just the social ones or the economic ones, but both. That my friends is the way to prosperity!
I’m just kidding. It would be terrible.
There have been a number of GOP presidential polls over the last week. One recently put Jeb out at the front of the pack, another had Rand Paul leading the way. It’s very early going, no one has even officially announced. But one thing appears clear, the Republican civil war continues. On one side are the neocon/big government establishment guys. On the other side is the libertarian/conservative coalition.
The stakes are high for the Republican wing of the Washington DC Party in 2016.
“It’s a big CLUB. And YOU AIN’T IN IT. You and I are NOT IN the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long, beating you over the head in their media telling you what to believe — what to think — and what to buy”. – George Carlin
Please, let’s make 2016 another Bush/Clinton race.
Well I think we can guess with this video where Hillary thinks she needs to do some work.
I mean the video speaks to me as a dude. See, Hilary’s down to earth. She’s not the conniving, social climbing, callous, self aggrandizing crony capitalist who gets paid $300,000 per speech who takes piles of money from Goldman Sachs and the rest of Wall Street that I thought she was. The below video shows me this.
We’ve been covering this for a while. It’s called legal a shakedown/favor arrangement. Who pays anyone $300,000 for a one hour speech? Never mind that UCLA is a PUBLIC university.
Pay me now and you will be looked upon favorably in my administration. Don’t pay me? Well I guess Stanford will be the California University which gets special consideration.
Oh, I think this is on the money. All hell is going to break loose on foreign policy in the GOP as we get closer to 2016. Anyone who is studying political science right now in school is just going to have a blast over the next couple of years as this is slugged out. Grab the popcorn.
I am almost giddy.
What is interesting particularly to me is that on economic issues Rand Paul is by FAR FAR FAR the most “conservative” of the likely GOP candidates. On other issues I think he just takes a pragmatic and grown up approach. This is a winning combination. Jeb and Christie ain’t going to do it folks. They won’t get elected. Rand has a real shot and he has a chance at winning the presidency in a completely unique way which will totally screw with the political consultant class in DC. And let’s be honest, liberal,or conservative, or whatever, we all want to see those guys get it.
