A woman president would be great, just not this woman. She represents just about everything that is wrong with government and the current political system. I don't see how we could do worse. The corruption and the mendacity is just too much for me. Give your cash to someone that deserves it... like a real charity!

If one is going to complain about politicians raising money - public financing of elections.

If one is a Hillary Hater - turn off Fox ("corruption"? Please share your PROOF, not your Fox Fables! And let me know about the Clown Corruption Show in Vegas this weekend with The Clowns prostrated before Adelson.)

Hillary is a far better candidate than any of the participants in the GOP Clown Show.

I'm not a Hillary fan, I vastly prefer a real liberal, much as I am not a fan of the centrist Obama. Still, she is much preferred over any of the Clowns.

Thankfully, not one of the Clowns can beat her.

A friend or relative that you love is getting married and invites you. It's a gay wedding. Do you decline because they are gay?

All the GOP candidates tell their loved ones to buzz off, just to pander for votes.

Mendacious to the max.

The clown car is running out of gas. I don't want Hilary either, but better than a car full of clowns. They are obsessed with women's bodies and what they can do and what they cannot do.

I await the unique moment in American history.... when Jeb Bush tries to articulate how, supporting the same policies of his brother, how he will somehow not repeat another Bush Great Recession.

How are any of the above referenced "clowns" different from George Bush? At least Pappy Bush gave us Bill Clinton.

The Clinton economy: 23 million new jobs, a balanced budget, a booming economy.

Compare that to Bush's 2008 disaster - 800,000 jobs lost per month.

Tell us how the GOP will somehow, miraculously be different - while still supporting the same Bush policies!!

Yeah, a Clinton over a Bush ANYTIME, and twice on Sundays!

What would a Clinton have to do to receive any of scorn from local progressives? Receive BJs in the Oval Office? Nah. Receive a $5 million bribe for greasing a sale of uranium to foreign countries? No again.

Judge Jeanine Pirro got down to business when it came to Hillary Clinton. Here are some quotes:

“Hillary Clinton would be, without a doubt, hands down, the absolute best CEO of a public company. Ruthless, profit-driven, and all about the money,” Pirro said. “But if you’re looking for a different kind of CEO, one to run the greatest nation on Earth and bring back America, now teetering on the brink of socialism, to be president of the United States, Hillary Clinton is the worst possible choice.”

“I am tired of people defining political deviancy down because it’s being committed by a member of their party. My back goes up when I hear that Russia, because of the Clintons, now controls a great deal of America’s uranium,” she said. “There is a name for people who are willing to sell out their country for cash.”

And it's not just Fox news who have pounced in Hillary's avarice--someone who is willing to sell out our country for money. The New York Times has finally had enough. Click here for the article in which Hillary makes a deal to give Russia control over much of our Uranium through a Canadian intermediary. Now with the Clinton deal the Russians have control of one-fifth of all uranium production in the United States

Web Link

Not to be outdone by the New York Times Western Journalism has posted a Jeanine Pirro video in which she righteously eviscerates Hillary for her proven mendacity such as the false declaration of coming under sniper fire in Bosnia.

If want you to see Mrs. Clinton's record as Secretary of State all you have to do is look at an emboldened Russia taking bites of Ukraine, a Libya as a failed state, a Syria in waste, the rise of ISIS, and the debacle in Yemen. In short, her and Obama's policies have made it so our allies no longer trust us, and our enemies no longer fear us.

Is the Democrat bench so weak that they can't field some candidates under the age of sixty to give us voters some other choices in the primaries?

"record as Secretary of State" Are you high? Look back before Secretary Clinton.

Under Bush, Putin took Georgia in 2008. And of course, Bush and Condi started the disaster in Iraq, ceding middle-east geo-political power to Iran.

I'll take Clinton over the Republican SecStates. Diplomacy and Peace are better options than young American boys and girls on the ground in Iran.

Let the chickenhawks stay retired at home and rant like old man Cheney on his front lawn.

"Judge" Jeanine Pirro!!! That is REALLY FUNNY!! Judge? What kind of "judge" becomes a Fox talking head! She's the BOZO who claimed that Birmingham was "totally Muslim"!!!!!

What kind of idiot makes such a stupid claim?

What kind of idiots watch a network that lies so often?

Well, Fox viewers, I guess......

"Fox News has become the laughingstock of Europe this week as first England and then France lampooned its ignorant, Islamophobic reporting. Finally, more than a week after Fox started fear mongering about the so-called “no go zones,” the “fair and balanced” network decided it had better stop. However as recently as two nights ago, Sean Hannity was still fear mongering about "no go zones." "

Fox gets away with it for a week, because Fox viewers are fools. No other reason exists for Fox lies. How embarrassing to get caught claiming to be a Pirro the Liar fan. Hope you do not admit that in public!

"Judge" Pirro the Laughingstock Liar has caught the Fox Virus (aka: full Clinton Derangement Syndrome)

Piro calls anything short of war (ie. diplomacy) "love letters".

One wonders if she ever served (other than on Fox's panel of liars with chickenhawks like John Bolton.)

@JeaninePirroFan: "And it's not just Fox news who ... is willing to sell out our country for money."

A so-called judge takes money to go on Fox, what does that make her?

She ran against Clinton and got spanked... well, not really -- she shot herself in the foot because she was so dumb she forgot a page to her speech (great job!) Being that dumb makes her perfect for Fox reality shows (she is beautiful, after all, and she can use a teleprompter, she just cannot think.)

"In a widely-publicised moment when she was declaring her candidacy, Pirro misplaced a page of her speech and went silent for 32 seconds, something that is widely considered to have damaged her campaign before it even started." 32 seconds. Youtube that -- it is cringe inducing to see someone go into mental meltdown like that.

So Pirro has a "thing" for Clinton, because Pirro forgot her own speech. There's an unreliable witness for you, straight from some Fox reality show. She's not smart enough to riff for 32 seconds without a teleprompter. Perfect for the Fox sheeple.

"Clinton Derangement Syndrome"?

Perfect description.
