Was Hillary as Sec State .... Obama's biggest mistake?

Something to ponder.....



I think it was one of his biggest mistakes, no clue as to why unless it was dictated by George Soros as part of his long range plan.


Don't forget Benghazi, Alinsky and the issue of Kendonesia

I don't get the Obama hate = Hillary hate...

The President was elected, and reelected ... he's served his time..

I would think the last thing that Obama would want is to have his legacy tainted by Hillary's effort...

The closer they are tied together, the more tainted his Presidency is?

Was Hillary as Sec State .... Obama's biggest mistake?

A mistake implies he head another choice. If he drug the campaign out any longer he would weaken them in the general and internal squabbling would have picked Hillary. If he wanted to become President, Hillary had to be there. In that sense, his mistake was that he didn't weaken Hillary enough in the campaign.

Trump, because he decided he wanted to run for POTUS, elected to not renew his show. It wasn't cancelled by NBC.

My take? He's trying to get the nomination so he can go against Hillary but will totally tank against her ON PURPOSE. He has said in the past he felt Hillary would make a great president.

I've always felt he was a plant to cause major distraction. There is no one strong enough or good enough to go up against him. The only candidate I feel who can run this country is Rand Paul. And he's not even up there with the rest of them.

Oh, God...We're so screwed.

Maybe Trump will win and he can assemble the army to go door to door to deport the rapist Mexicans that Mexico is intentionally sending here? Maybe all of them and then place all muslim in internment camps

Press the nuke button to see what it does

I've been watching it off and on all day.....
nearly done now.

Gotta say, the tax conversation (melee) was interesting. And Christie was the ONLY ONE who addressed the question of entitlements.
Rubio fended off Cruz well, and I'll have to look at Carson's plan again. This tax thing is perhaps the most compelling and interesting of the issues in the debate for me - although the fact that ALL OF THEM are talking about war, war, war, rebuild, strengthen, spend, war...really, really bothers me.

That's one thing about the dems....they talk more about people's actual lives day to day, and less about hypothetical war.

Hey, also - they just asked Trump about his business if he becomes POTUS.

anyway -

(guys! I'm changing my tune!!! FWIW)
I kinda like him, actually. And Christie. I feel sorry for Jeb! - but that's just empathetic overly-sensitive old me.

Kasich made a great speech about LEO vs Communities.
I had to run it back, though, because I thought he said they have implemented deadly force statewide........
and that is what he said.

But yeah, the 'retraining' of LEOs is critical, I think...and the communication. He's the only one who has brought up communication as an important thing currently being ignored. Try to understand how the other person thinks, what their experience is, how their lives are.

Yeah! KASICH. Great wrap-up.

I'm still really upset that Rand Paul wasn't invited! And I'd be totally upset if I was invited to a second tier debate. I agree that it's like showing people that you aren't a real candidate. I just don't think that's the way you whittle it down.

Maybe they should have a cap on how many candidates should enter. I don't know.
This was an unprecedented thing -

Can't do that.

Candidates get on ballots by petitions signed by people.

On that point we completely agree. I would go one further that Sanders is getting Ron'd as well.

You have a point. Not sure how to cut it off but I just don't trust the media to tell us who's worthy of being in a debate.

I know. It's like being forced to sit at the kiddie table during Thanksgiving.

Maybe he should break away and run as an independent.

Watched the debate on Youtube...

Kasich - when will this man ever stop talking about the fact he balanced the budget? I think everyone has got it now - jeez.

Christie - as close to a fascist as you can get. Mr Authority will enslave the nation and start WWIII

Rubio - I think he was under pressure but did well enough. He is a good debater but I always sense he is not telling the truth.

Trump - good night for him. I thought he owned the stage. It doesn't seem to matter what is thrown his way, he seems to brush it off. He hurt Cruz quite badly I think and simply appeared like a more powerful man than him.

Cruz - Did well in patches but he really stepped on a mine with the attack on Trump. It was a classic negotiation tactic from trump, let your adversary lay it all out and then win the argument with a few well chosen words.

Bush - Probably his best debate and is appearing to be taking the high ground on issues and conflicts with other runners. Trying to be more subtle.

My ranking for the debate

1st - Trump (by a long long way)
2nd - Bush
3rd - Rubio
4th - Christie
5th - Cruz
6th - Kasich
