The Clintons Begin Laying the Groundwork for 2016

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, June 12, 2012

From the first day of Hillary’s downfall, I never had a doubt that the HillBillies would seek revenge on “the amateur” who outslicked them in the 2008 Democratic primary.  Axelthugs Incorporated, knowing they would have a problem on their hands, took Michael Corleone’s godfatherly advice — “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” — and got BHO to name Hillary Secretary of State.

Now the big question inside the Beltway is whether or not Bubba Bill is accidentally telling the truth or knowingly using his intellect, charm, and desire for revenge to undermine Obama and cost him the election this November.  If one believes Edward Klein’s description (in his book The Amateur) of Clinton calling a meeting of his closest allies to urge Hillary to run against Obama in 2012 (and I do), then clearly his actions are intentional.

So why would Clinton keep walking things back and assuring everyone that he fully supports Obama?  I think it’s because he doesn’t want to get the Democratic Party angry at Hillary and him.  All he wants to do is poke enough jabs at the already staggering presidential imposter to help assure he loses to Romney this fall.

It’s a fine balancing act, but is there anyone better than Bill Clinton when it comes to walking a tightrope?  You do remember names like Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones, and Gennifer Flowers, don’t you?  Neither they nor the Clinton’s vast network of enemies were able to bring him down.

Just as (true) conservatives have to start gearing up right now to take on Mitt Romney if he wins in November, so, too, do they have to start getting ready for a Hillary comeback in 2016.  Hillary is already the most popular politician in America, and after four years of Mitt Romney’s pansy policies, it would not surprise me if she beat MittMan by the biggest margin in history if she ran against him.

Warning to those who have drunk the Hillary-Aid:  Hillary is every bit as dangerous as Obama.  Remember Hillarycare?  Remember “it takes a village?”  Remember “shared prosperity?”  Remember “I consider myself to be a modern American progressive?”

In one way, Hillary is even more dangerous than Obama because, unlike him, she is part of the system.  She knows how to play the game and work with liberal Republicans like Orrin Hatch, Mitch McConnell, and Eric Cantor in order to get her way.  By contrast, Obama is an outsider who not only refuses to work with Republicans, he has offended an ever-growing number of Democrats as well.

True, Obama is clever.  But his cleverness has an arrogance to it that causes him to end up getting himself in trouble.  To paraphrase Thomas Sowell, the problem with clever people is that there is a tendency to try to continue to be clever long past the point where what they have to lose is much greater than what they have to gain.

If there is a Romney victory celebration the evening of November 6, don’t get caught up in it.  Because while his adoring supporters are wildly cheering Mitt the Amazing, the HillBillies will already be hunkered down in their war room, plotting out their 2016 strategy.

    Robert Ringer's comments about Bill Clinton "walking things back" and his "fine balancing act" remind me of the following passage about Clinton in the book I'm currently reading: "Clinton's instinct always seemed to be the same—say a little of this, a little of that, kinda yes, sorta no; some truth, but rarely the whole truth. That pattern of hedging, always holding something back or leaving a loophole, would play itself out time and again whenever Clinton faced questions he feared could harm him." From p. 101 of Candice E. Jackson's book THEIR LIVES: THE WOMEN TARGETED BY THE CLINTON MACHINE.

    I just can't see a bloated, pasty skinned, plain, shrill Hillary Clinton winning an election for presidency. Popular? That's news to us in the south.I think she was popular enough to get elected by liberals in New York, but that won't play in mid-America.

  3. Can you imagine what Hillary is going to look like in 2016? Your Great-Grandmother!. Sorry Hillary, it passed you by.

    Mitt may not be the best this country can do, but think

    seriously about the alternative, please.

      Willard Romney is a toadie of the Israelis. He loves everything about the country. He'd sell out the US in an instant. Romney apparently owes a lot to Israel, likely his life. Mark my words, Romney will continue to sink this country into the mire of failure. A vote for Romney may be better than a vote for the idiot in the White House now,but what's a 1% difference anyway? Almost nothing. Romney will sell us out and kiss Nettanyahoo's butt twice a day, every day. Your kind of prez? We have no choice, remember the idiot McKain? The man is insane and you would have voted for him? Do not vote for anybody unless it's a write in like Ronnie Paul or maybe even Judy Scheindlin. The woman is hot and believes in justice, a winning combination.

      Nasty smear against Hillary Clinton. Big legs age well. Some tummy tucks and pullbacks and she'd look like Kenny Rogers after his 12th face lift. That is, she'd look Chinese…

  4. Donna says:

    I have to agree with Texas Wolfe. I cannot see Hiliary Clinton winning anywhere besides New York and California. But I think we should see what's in store for us the rest of this year. I'm more worried about those Bilderberg people.

  5. Alisha says:

    If you don't see Hillary as a threat then you must have forgotten what happened in the last Democratic primary. She came extremely close. Obama won out because he got the bankroll from some very high profile people such a Oprah. Just because conservatives can't stand her doesn't mean that Democrats don't love her, and that she can't easily win over the Independents and undecideds.

    • Erato says:

      Hillary is not any more of a threat than any other politician- there are no significant differences between her and George Bush. (but many similarities)

      The real threat is the citizenry who perpetuate the election process by voting.

    • bahmi says:

      Hilly Clinton is probably the most vicious female politician this nation has ever seen. Instead of telling us her fellow Democrats "love her", why don't you tell us why. How would this catamount "easily win over" Independents and undecideds? Charm? Intelligence? Big legs? Orange pants suits? Stupid people would vote for a person who was a vicious as Hilly. If you think Obama stinks, you'd find out rapidly that this freakshow from the Yale Law School would rather see you dead and with her taking your hard earned life's savings. The Clintons love the Clintons, does that not bother you? Why are some of you Clinton toadies anyway? The best idea they've ever had was installing air conditioned Port-O-Lets at Chelsea's wedding with piped in classical music. NAFTA was a disaster, thank Bubba for that. Still love these class A narcissists?

  6. Gill O’Teen says:

    Lest we forget, if rum-knee wins this go-round, the lord-of-lies is eligible to be reelected once more in 2016, in fact until he holds that office for two terms. From the The Constitution of the United States; Amendment 22 (Ratified 2/27/1951): “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.” It does not say these terms must be consecutive.

  7. Thomas says:

    Asking people to choose between Willard and Obummer is like being asked to choose between cancer and HIV…neither is acceptable. It will be no different in 2016 between Chillary and whoever runs against her. I'm betting the country will implode before then and am seeking land deals in Chile.

  8. Hal Edwards says:

    Mr. Ringer didn't mention one thing about Hillary. She is absolutely ruthless and would do anything to obtain and maintain power. I believe Dick Morris put it best when he described her as "A Democratic Nixon."

  9. bahmi says:

    The reason why Bubba Clinton's large scrapbook of enemies did not bring him down is due mainly to the apathy of the American voter. Americans are like moths, shiny objects attract them. Clinton had a long reputation of being extremely vindictive. If he could, he'd see to it that you got a knife between your ribs if you went against him too strongly and made him look bad. The Clintons are very, very dangerous people, amply suited for a disintegrating nation like the US. The Secy of State Hillary Clinton is a doubletalker par excellence. A very vicious person who'd scratch your eyes out and enjoy the experience. There are many reasons why we are sinking like a stone and the Clintons are two reasons why. Thanks to these vipers, we are a weaker nation.

  10. Neddie says:

    I agree. The Clintons are two hideous freaks. Retire them. Make them go away! Please
