Rudy Giuliani is using that old, tired and failed line that President Obama doesn’t love America. Yes, we see where that got the Republican Party in 2012 — Obama beat Mitt Romney by a landslide.

Rudy Giuliani went straight for the jugular Wednesday night during a private group dinner here featuring Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by openly questioning whether President Barack Obama “loves America.”

The former New York mayor, speaking in front of the 2016 Republican presidential contender and about 60 right-leaning business executives and conservative media types, directly challenged Obama’s patriotism, discussing what he called weak foreign policy decisions and questionable public remarks when confronting terrorists.

“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani said during the dinner at the 21 Club, a former Prohibition-era speakeasy in midtown Manhattan. “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”

Report: Mitt Romney Not Running for President Again

Report: Mitt Romney Not Running for President Again

Twice-failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney is not throwing his hat in the ring for a third time.

Mitt Romney released a statement to his supporters:  “After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee.”

“I feel that it is critical that America elect a conservative leader to become our next president. You know that I have wanted to be that president. But I do not want to make it more difficult for someone else to emerge who may have a better chance of becoming that president.” – Hugh Hewitt Show

That’s contrary to reports from the Daily Beast and First Read:

Daily Beast:  “Sources have told The Daily Beast that the former Massachusetts governor will announce his intention to explore a third run for the White House. Romney and his senior aides believe he is the best placed candidate to defeat Hillary Clinton. In a memo sent by Romney to his inner circle Thursday, he highlighted three reasons he should run: He thinks he’s the only qualified Republican in the field, polling is favorable to a win, and he thinks he can do better as a campaigner in 2016. Romney had originally intended to wait until later in the cycle but the bullish entry of Jeb Bush into the field encouraged him to jump early.”

First Read: “No one knows for sure what Romney will announce, but the hunch coming from Romney World is that the former Massachusetts governor is going to give it another try. But here’s why Romney has to make up his mind now: The ground underneath his feet is already beginning to crumble. Just yesterday, we learned that Romney’s top Iowa strategist in 2008 and 2012 — David Kochel — is set to be Jeb Bush’s campaign manager. We also learned, via the AP, that some of Romney’s past donors are jumping aboard the Jeb Train.”

I must admit, Donald Trump saying he would have beaten President Obama in the 2012 presidential campaign is a funny as Sen. Joni Ernst’s bread-bag story. He said he was leading in every poll. Um, really? Which poll? Oh wait, he’s talking about his brief lead in a GOP poll in early 2011. He conveniently forgets that his polling numbers imploded from 26 percent in April to eight percent in May. He’s deluded into thinking he could have beaten President Obama, who won by a landslide. Mitt Romney got 47% of the vote, the same number of Americans he called deadbeats.

In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, he said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose — and he expressed regret that he hadn’t run himself in 2012.

Trump said he should be in the White House right now.

“I was leading in every poll. … I regret that I didn’t stay in,” he said in an interview before a private dinner at the Stine Barn in West Des Moines. “I would’ve won the race against (President Barack) Obama. He would’ve been easy. Hillary (Clinton) is tougher to beat than Obama, but Hillary is very beatable.”

Trump said he heard Bush is trying to raise $15 million before he makes up his mind about running.

“If I do it, I’ll be self-funding so that solves that problem. Which is nice,” he said. Source: Des Moines Register

Every presidential election cycle we hear the usual drum beats from the likes of Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. No-one in their right minds would vote for either. They both have zero credibility and will never be POTUS. Donald Trump’s delusional comments comes days after a poll found most Republicans prefer Mitt Romney over Jeb Bush in the presidential elections.

For once I agree with Donald Trump, “this country doesn’t need another Bush.” Jeb Bush has announced on Twitter and Facebook that he’s “actively exploring a White House run for 2016.” To be fair, I actually prefer him to his brother, George W. Bush, but do we need another Bush in the White House?

Jeb Bush wrote on Facebook about discussions over a possible presidential run, “We also talked about the future of our nation. As a result of these conversations and thoughtful consideration of the kind of strong leadership I think America needs, I have decided to actively explore the possibility of running for President of the United States.”

So, I guess he will be restoring the America his brother helped to wreck, right? Like Donald Trump said, “this country doesn’t need another Bush.” That’s even as he flirts with a presidential run, which we know won’t materialize.

 

Former Obama Campaign Staffers Urge Elizabeth Warren to Run for President

About 300 former Barack Obama campaign staffers are urging Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016. The letter, which was organized by Ready for Warren, is entitled, “We helped elect Barack Obama — now we’re calling on Elizabeth Warren to run in 2016.”

We believed in an unlikely candidate who no one thought had a chance.

We worked for him — and against all odds, we won in Iowa.

We organized like no campaign had organized before — and won the Democratic primary.

We built a movement — and the country elected the first-ever African American president.

We know that the improbable is far from impossible.

Now, former staffers from President Obama’s campaigns, along with former staffers from OFA, are joining with the thousands of Americans who are calling on Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016.

Rising income inequality is the challenge of our times, and we want someone who will stand up for working families and take on the Wall Street banks and special interests that took down our economy.

Right Wing Freak-Out Over Hillary Clinton’s Letters to Saul Alinsky Proves Nothing

Republicans are having a new feeding frenzy — Hillary Clinton’s letters to Saul Alinksy. Um, think the Barack Obama-Bill Ayres link. That went nowhere and this latest freak-out won’t either. Just saying…What’s next? Hillary Clinton’s Kenyan link?

Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveals new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development….

Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by theWashington Free Beacon show….

Clinton’s connection to Alinsky has been the subject of speculation for decades. It became controversial when Wellsley College, by request of the Clinton White House, sealed her 1968 thesis from the public for years. Conservative lawyer Barbara Olson said Clinton had asked for the thesis to be sealed because it showed “the extent to which she internalized and assimilated the beliefs and methods of Saul Alinsky.”

So, while the right wing blogosphere is foaming at the mouth over Hillary Clinton being a radical leftist, she’s heading for New Hampshire. That’s after a successful Iowa trip.

 

 

 

Right Wing Trying to Swift-Boat Hillary Clinton With 1975 Child Rape Case

The right wing has dug up some tapes of Hillary Clinton representing accused child rapist Thomas Alfred Taylor. This is akin to the Tony Rezko case they tried to smear Barack Obama with during the 2008 presidential campaign or even his former pastor Jeremiah Wright. Here’s an excerpt from the Washington Free Beacon’s ‘bombshell’ article:

Newly discovered audio recordings of Hillary Clinton from the early 1980s include the former first lady’s frank and detailed assessment of the most significant criminal case of her legal career: defending a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.

In 1975, the same year she married Bill, Hillary Clinton agreed to serve as the court-appointed attorney for Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old accused of raping the child after luring her into a car.

The recordings, which date from 1983-1987 and have never before been reported, include Clinton’s suggestion that she knew Taylor was guilty at the time. She says she used a legal technicality to plead her client, who faced 30 years to life in prison, down to a lesser charge. The recording and transcript, along with court documents pertaining to the case, are embedded below.

The full story of the Taylor defense calls into question Clinton’s narrative of her early years as a devoted women and children’s advocate in Arkansas—a narrative the 2016 presidential frontrunner continues to promote on her current book tour.

[…]

From a legal ethics perspective, once she agreed to take the case, Clinton was required to defend her client to the fullest even if she did believe he was guilty.

“We’re hired guns,” Ronald D. Rotunda, a professor of legal ethics at Chapman University, told the Washington Free Beacon. “We don’t have to believe the client is innocent…our job is to represent the client in the best way we can within the bounds of the law.”

However, Rotunda said, for a lawyer to disclose the results of a client’s polygraph and guilt is a potential violation of attorney-client privilege.

“You can’t do that,” he said. “Unless the client says: ‘You’re free to tell people that you really think I’m a scumbag, and the only reason I got a lighter sentence is because you’re a really clever lawyer.’”

Yes, this is the beginning of the attacks on Hillary Clinton. Public defenders and defense attorneys are called on to represent people they know are guilty of crimes. Jodi Arias murdered Travis Alexander in cold blood, but she was afforded a lawyer, wasn’t she? O.J. Simpson was accused of murdering two people and was represented by Johnny Cochran and others, right?

Well, this is sure to set Alaska’s half-term governor Sarah Palin off again….Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton refused to go along with then-candidate Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign request to attack Sarah Palin immediately after she was picked by John McCain as his running mate.

Clinton said in an interview with NBC’s Cynthia McFadden, “The day she was nominated, the Obama campaign did contact me and asked me if I would attack her. I said, ‘attack her for what — for being a woman? Attack her for being on a ticket that’s trying to draw attention? There’ll be plenty of time to do what I think you should do in politics, which is draw distinctions.”

Of course, Sarah Palin couldn’t take the high road and pass on wallowing in the muck:

The Republicans are going bat-sh*t crazy over a possible Hillary Clinton presidential run. The Drudge Report asked if the former first lady was holding a walker in her latest cover picture in the upcoming issue of People Magazine. Really? Another right wing lunatic questioning her health. Yep, they are trying to stir as much wild speculation of Hillary Clinton’s health as they possibly can.

It’s pretty evident that she’s leaning on a patio chair, um, since she’s standing in front of a pool….

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl that “I am ready to be president.” I guess many he is deluded into thinking he will get the Hispanic vote when the GOP is deliberately stalling any immigration reform.

He’s a 42-year-old freshman senator, but when asked by Jonathan Karl on “This Week” if he’s ready to be president, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida answered without hesitation.

“I do … but I think that’s true for multiple other people that would want to run … I mean, I’ll be 43 this month, but the other thing that perhaps people don’t realize, I’ve served now in public office for the better part of 14 years,” said Rubio. “Most importantly, I think a president has to have a clear vision of where the country needs to go and clear ideas about how to get it there and I think we’re very blessed in our party to have a number of people that fit that criteria.”

When asked if he was qualified to run, Rubio reiterated that the Republican Party has several qualified candidates.

“The question is what — who’s vision is the one that our party wants to follow?” he said.

Rubio – who spoke to Karl on Friday in New Hampshire — said that if he decides to seek the presidency, he would not simultaneously seek re-election as a senator for the Sunshine State.

“I believe that if you want to be president of the United States, you run for president,” he said. “You don’t run for president with some eject button in the cockpit that allows you to go on an exit ramp if it doesn’t work out.” Source: ABC News

Um, I guess there’s nothing wrong with dreaming…Mitt Romney also had a dream of being the next U.S. president but look where it got him?
