Queen Hillary's Speeches

Original post made by Martin O\'Malley Fan, Menlo Park: other, on Aug 19, 2014

The price of Hillary Clinton's scheduled speech and UNLV fundraiser could be going up. Las Vegas Review Journal, which obtained Clinton's contract with the UNLV Foundation, reports in addition to her speaking fee of $225,000, Clinton is demanding a private jet, a presidential suite and adjoining rooms for her entourage, and Clinton refuses to mingle with the common folk. She wants to approve any media types attending the event.

And now, a word about royalty. We don't have kings and queens in America, or at least we shouldn't. But when I see the red carpet UNLV is rolling out for Hillary Clinton in two months I start to wonder. Unless you're a mindless partisan, the details of that contract with the UNLV Foundation should disturb you. They were uncovered by Lara Myers, and published over the weekend. The contract reads as if Hillary is being given the, yes, royal treatment. Now it is bad enough that the UNLV Foundation folks agreed to that outrageous $225,000 fee as students struggle to make ends meet.

I predict that Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley will get the 1016 Democratic nomination for President.

Is this the same Concern T**** that posted a day ago about how wonderful Elizabeth Warren is?

Nice to know the fringe on the far right is so scared spit-less about Hillary!

Where's that thread from the other day? Yup, here's the reply:

----------------------------------------------

"Our anonymous concern troll from the right just wants to pretend to care about Warren and then quickly pivot and post his trash about Hillary being so-called "damaged goods" - hogwash. The same concern trolls liked to say in 2012 that Hillary should replace Obama for the good of the Democrat Party. Go ahead and look it up (start with Hank Lawrence, 2012: "It is too late for Obama. The democrats wouldn't be in this situation if Hillary got the nomination." Web Link Yes, there are more.) One suspects this is why we don't see posts under his name any more.

I guess beating Mitt Romney by 5 million votes wasn't enough just wasn't enough for the rest of the concern trolls who told us the Dems should drop Obama for Hillary in 2012.

Name a Republican that can beat Hillary if she runs.

Go ahead - name one. Hint: you may not want to name one of the three facing indictments: Scott Walker, Rick Perry, or soon: Chris Christie

When Hillary runs, she is going to make Obama's 5 million vote margin of victory look small.




Name a Republican that can beat Hillary if she runs. Go ahead - name one.

Anyone? Bueller?"



and later:


"Here's another concern T back in 2012, offering words of advice to Dems about that loser, Barack Obama, and the poster's personal fav: Hillary Clinton

Web Link

Thanks, Hank! Shall we call Hillary and ask her to send you a lawn sign?



Hank: "The only hope the Democrats have now to hang on to the White House is...." "

I think our right fring poster is just ticked off that no one will pay Bush, McCain or Romney more than 50,000 for a speech.

Why would they?
