Dems Already Measuring White House for New Drapes
Post-Benghazi Hearing narrative: “I think that put her in the White House.”
Democrats are are gleeful over Hillary Clinton’s performance at the Benghazi hearing on Friday. Her fundraising is up, she’s received a big labor union endorsement and two of her Democratic rivals have dropped out of the race.
Even so, their enthusiasm smacks of overconfidence.
Jordain Carney of The Hill:
Senate Dems rally around Clinton after Benghazi hearing
Senate Democrats are rallying behind Hillary Clinton after her marathon appearance before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, suggesting Republicans have only helped bolster the former secretary of State’s presidential bid.
“I had somebody come to my home this morning and say, ‘You know, I think that put her in the White House,'” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) told reporters Friday.
The California Democrat — who led the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya —added that “those [committee] rooms get hot. The lights get bright. I think she showed drive and a staying power and a motivation. … I could see her across the table from [Russian President Vladimir] Putin.”
Clinton has won wide praise from the media and Democrats for her hours-long testimony, capping off a positive few weeks for a campaign that was embattled for months by questions over Clinton’s private email server.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) added that House Republicans “certainly didn’t do any damage to Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, and since that was their goal, they get an F.”
Bret Baier covered the ongoing “crowning” on Special Report last night.
Things are looking better for Mrs. Clinton but here’s a reality check:
Poll: NRA more popular than Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton
A new poll shows The National Rifle Association is more popular than the Democratic party’s two most prominent members, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
According to the Gallup Poll, 58 percent of Americans surveyed said they have a favorable view of the gun rights group, while 35 percent said they have an unfavorable view…
Compare this to recent approval ratings for the president and former secretary of state, who is running for the Democratic nomination for president, and recently announced that she would support tougher gun laws once in office.
According to a Gallup Poll between Oct.19-21, just under 50 percent approve of Obama’s job performance, while 45 percent disapprove. Meanwhile, in a NBC/Wall Street Journal survey of Americans taken Oct. 15-18, 39 percent of those surveyed had a favorable view of Clinton, compared to 48 percent with an unfavorable view.
It’s rather telling that one of Hillary’s self-proclaimed enemies is more popular than she is.
Maybe Democrats shouldn’t start measuring for new drapes just yet.

Damn me for not buying a gun store when I had the chance! President Hillary along with the coming release of a million federal prisoners will sell more gun than anytime in our history.
I know at least five Americans who are not voting for her.
Now, you know a sixth.
If that shrew gets elected, it’ll be just one of many indications that this country has gone past the point of no return. Let the liberals have California, while the rest of us sane individuals take over what’s left of the country. With any luck, the “big one” will come and everything west of the San Andreas fault will drop off into the Pacific ~
It will be an indication of more glaring faults.
Such as conservative voters who choose to stay home because they didn’t get all the toppings of their favorite ice cream.
More like the GOPe who either 1) push to get their golden boy Jeb! nominated even though normal people don’t want him, and consequently people stay away from the voting booths in record crowds, or 2) sabotage whoever the non-establishment nominee is because they can’t stand conservatives and would rather see this country go down in flames at the hands of leftist democrats than let a true conservative sit behind the desk in the Oval Office ~
You have no idea if they stayed home or not, only that they refused to vote for whatever candidate you favor. Why would a conservative vote for non-conservatives from a party that routinely lies to its voters?
Keep blaming the voter. Keep nominating McCains, Romneys, and Bushes. Keep losing. Blame the voters. Sounds like a winning plan. How’s it worked so far?
It will be important to put a fence around California so those people who voted to turn California into the monstrosity it is now are not allowed to move and vote the same way in their new state.
Those hearings confirmed that Hillary’s is a vile liar and that she was utterly incompetent as Sec State. The Dims view that as a “win?” The USA has been fundamentally transformed into a bizzaro world.
Just wait till the general. Super PACs and the GOP nominee campaign will be playing, over and over, that clip of Hillary lying to family members of the dead Benghazi victims as they stand next to their coffins.
And that tape of her laughing about her child rapist client getting off.
And reminding everyone how the last time she was in the White House she used it to illegally hide documents from a subpoena (Rose Law Firm billing records)
And refreshing everyone’s memory about she and Bill looted the White House when they left last time
And exposing how her “charitable” foundation, which spends less than 20% of it’s income on actual charitable work, took in hundreds of millions of dollars worth of donations for foreign entities that had business before her as Sec State… a direct violation of Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of The Constitution
And pinning the disaster that is the Middle East today squarely on her. The left sure liked to whine about the mess GWB made in Iraq… well Hillary made the situation 100X worse under her watch.
She’s also the sole architect of the Libya disaster, which has killed or displaced untold numbers of innocent “brown people”.
“We came. We saw. He died…(cackle)”.
There’s a really excellent case to be made that this was all in pursuit of taking control of Libyan oil assets. Exactly the realization of what they falsely accused Booooooooooosh of doing.
That was Sid Blumenthal’s plan.
The way to beat Clinton is to prove her dishonesty and immorality to women Dem voters, her largest bloc of supporters. That clip of her lying to family members standing next to the bodies is perfect for that. Rather than a scattershot of a dozen different such video clips on a dozen other Hillary travesties, I’d just keep running that some one over and over and over.
Call me what you will, but I welcome the return of the Clintons to the White House, in the hope that they’ll return all the loot they took when they left the first time.
No, they aren’t returning the goods they stole, there were some more they want to take.
Two weeks ago Bernie Sanders had Hillary on the ropes and it was all but over for her. Today she’s a shoo-in, not just for the nomination, but for the presidency as well.
It’s all ridiculous. We’re more than a year away from the election, and lots of things are likely to change voters’ views of the candidates between now and then. Granted, the MSM will do everything it possibly can to shape a favorable narrative for the Dem nominee, whether that’s Hillary or somebody else, but at this point, nobody has won this race.
The only thing we know for certain now is that the Republican candidate, whoever that ends up being, will have to beat not just the Democratic candidate, but also the Democratic-controlled media/Hollywood/Wall Street cabal.
If you read any of the left blogs they could care less what she did, or any other Democrat for that matter. Her testimony was “Presidential”, she “outsmarted the Republicans”. They simply don’t care about integrity or honor. They are the scum that has risen to the top of the pail and they are happy to be there. And they are many. They wallow in filth and revel in the experience. That’s how much they hate the country we love. I am not sure what country they love but it’s not the same one. “They” are the new America. And they are not going away.
Please have faith! Remember how the Dems were going to take back Congress? Remember how they got smashed up along side their heads in ’10 & ’14? I’ve seen online, heard on various talk radio stations of Dems who’ve said “I’ll never vote for another GD Democrat as long as I live!” Hang on!! Have hope!
Yep, down here where I live they were gonna “Turn Texas Blue” last time around. Then Abortion Barbie got an epic trouncing… and not the kind she’s used to.
I also know some Democrats, flaming pinkos actually, who call her a “lying whore” and who swear they will NEVER vote for her. They say they’ll stay at home if she’s their candidate. The only way to describe the Dim field is pathetic and weak.
The fact remains that she has a very long trail of public failure and her closets are bulging with skeletons. Hopefully the Republican candidate has the gonads to go after her.
The problem is government agencies and courts are infested with Democrats from top to bottom. If they are not purged, elections won’t mean a damn thing. Republicans not only need to win, they need to be as ruthless as the Democrats would be. And they need to find a way to marginalize the press, or at least make them irrelevant.
Look at the bright side of things. If she wins, maybe we will get our furniture back.
Reminds me of the WE BELIEVE BILL CLINTON crowd. Shameless and without a smidgen of intellectual honesty.
I don’t know what Trey Gowdy thought he would accomplish by giving her highness a full day campaign ad. Maybe give her cardiac arrest? Well, she won. The MSM is happy. It’s all behind her now. When the FBI gives her the Lois Lerner pass, then she’s home free.
The MSM sings to a very small, already irretrievably in the tank choir. Same with liberal blogs. More people listen to Rush on a given day than NBC, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN combined.
Keep saying it. That’s why McCain and Romney won.
Perception is everything to a majority non-thinking electorate, and the establishment yet owns the perception.
Gowdy got pwned. Jordan blew his cool. Only those who go to the trouble of looking for the facts will find them, i.e., you and me. With Trump-like media punch-through and a year to go, we might gain a majority.
And yet 70-75% of Republicans refuse to support Trump.
Hummmm! Hillary’s first step to her crowning glory, her nomination for President of the U. S.
But, wait! After the Dems Convention’s done, delegates back home, disaster strikes; either Hillary gets “sick” or is indicted.
Yet, Dems save the day; they’ve got two replacements standing by; Biden and Michelle; no idea which is the first replacement, probably depends on pooling data. Personally, my guess is that Obama would pardon Hillary after she drops out of the race; the pending (Unannounced) indictment the stick to that pardon carrot.
However, if neither the stick nor the carrot work, what then? That scenario is too totally awesome, and likely too unacceptable by current societal norms, to contemplate!
It was a created war zone with assassination of the regime. Why is the Department of State responsible?
Obama the Teflon Man.
I’m not sure Obamka is in charge of his own foreign policy.
the GOP now has 11 hours of lies and evasions to turn into dozens of campaign ads and the FBI has sworn testimony to compare against the evidence being gathered … nobody watching her performance could possibly come away thinking she is truthful … she solidified her liar label …
Hillary probably won’t win the nomination. I suspect she’ll be in jail or in the hospital from stress. If she does get it, she’ll be embarrassed by Cruz, Trump, Carson, Fiorina. She’s just not a smart person.
People other than the GOP need to launch a full out education campaign about the last 8 years, how Hillary or another Dem will make it worse, and so forth. A majority of the public already disagrees with the Dem vision. But, need to make it as close to unanimous as possible.
