The chatter is getting a little louder as the time draws closer. Hillary Clinton will make a decision to run for President, presumably in early 2015.

At the same time, speculation is growing that our present FLOTUS may have her eyes on the Senate seat in Illinois presently held by Sen. Mark Kirk (R). Kirk, a stroke survivor, has shown himself to be a fighter, battling his stroke to return to the duties of being the junior Senator from Illinois. But if a powerhouse figure such as Michelle Obama were to enter the race to challenge him in 2016, escpecially of Hillary is at the top of the ticket, does Kirk have the fortitude to wage that type of battle? Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emmanuel (D) is also one who would be a beneficiary of a run by both Hillary and Michelle. Pollsters are showing that his reelection prospects are in trouble, but if both Hillary and Michelle were on a November 2016 ballot, he might ride their coattails back into office for another term.

Of course, all this assumes that the American electorate could stomach MORE Clinton years and MORE Obama years.

President William Howard Taft went on to be appointed to the US Supreme Court, and served as the Chief Justice.

So the idea of the current occupant of the White House ending up wearing the robe of the Justice’s isn’t that far-fetched. One could easily see, should Hillary Clinton run and be elected as our next President, her appointing Barack Obama to the bench when a vacancy occurs.

JAMES offers a different scenario, and perhaps one a bit scarier.

Imagine a seat opens on the US Supreme Court due to the retirement of any one of the Justices before November 2016. Barack Obama has to nominate someone to fill that seat. Our “Narcissist in Chief” can think of NO ONE more qualified than Barack H. Obama. He nominates himself and is confirmed, leaving Biden’s lifelong dream of being POTUS fulfilled, even if only for a short time. Add to that, if this were to occur in the near future, that a “President Biden” would need to nominate a Vice President…… Hillary Clinton.

All of this should give everyone pause, in light of the President’s apparent lack of following the law. Let us hope that there are no vacancies any time soon at the Court.

Any guesses of how many politicians and judges will be on the list?

“The man who helped bring about the most significant leak in American intelligence history is to reveal names of US citizens targeted by their own government in what he promises will be the “biggest” revelation from nearly 2m classified files.”

Hillary Michelle 2016

One would think that Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) is not thrilled with the moderate, albeit RINO, stances that his colleague Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). Yet, the junior Senator from Kentucky has endorsed the senior Senator from Kentucky in this year’s closely watched Senate race. McConnell is facing a Tea Party primary opponent, and if he squeaks through that round in May, he will face a hard battle with a Democrat with Bill Clinton in her corner.

So to get Paul’s endorsement, did McConnell play politics with family in choosing his campaign team. Perhaps that question should be addressed to his campaign manager, Jesse Benton. Mr. Benton, according to Wikipedia, “is a political consultant and libertarian activist known for working with conservative and libertarian organizations like Americans for Tax Reform, the Liberty Coalition, and the American Conservative Union. Benton is strongly associated with the Paul family, serving as a high-ranking staffer for both Ron Paul and Rand Paul.”

Benton’s “strong association” with the Paul family may come from his marriage to Valori Pyeatt. Ms. Pyeatt’s mother is Lori Paul Pyeatt, who happens to be Ron Paul’s daughter and Rand Paul’s sister.

Politics and family…. Family and Politics!!

So, under the “ALAN COLMES” theory of democracy, if you challenge the President of the United States in the election process, and you LOSE that election, you forfeit your personal right to freedom of speech and expression!! And that applies EQUALLY to your wife of more than four decades!!

From his column in the Huffington Post, Alan Colmes writes:

Mitt Romney, rather than gracefully accepting defeat, continues to let us know he would have been a better president. Ann Romney, too, has expended energy bashing President Obama, ungraciously. Now comes a Wall Street Journal op-ed via Mitt Romney telling us what a failed leader the president is.

Colmes, for his liberal-biased part, feels that it is un-American for anyone, let alone Mitt and Ann Romney, to point out what is patently obvious to most of the rest of us, and apparently to Vladmir Putin and other world leaders, in that Barack Obama is a FAILED and WEAK PRESIDENT. History will eventually show that, to date, he is perhaps the WORST and WEAKEST President ever to sit in the Oval Office. (I’m sure Jimmy Carter is happy to have lived long enough to see someone “elevate” him from that role).

‘I was given every s*** job in the world by Obama’: Biden makes astonishing  revelations about his relationship with the President as it’s claimed he was  ‘frozen out’ by White House over gay gaffe

  • Vice President Joe Biden reveals he  willingly took the President’s more ‘bothersome’ tasks but in turn wanted to be  included in major decisions
  • The deal was kept for the first term but  after Biden said he was ‘absolutely comfortable’ with gay marriage before Obama,  he was frozen out
  • He was allowed to attend strategy  meetings and wasn’t happy when Obama’s team didn’t refute rumors about him being  replaced by Clinton
  • Now the relationship is  beginning to thaw but he is plagued by the prospect that Obama and his advisers  want Clinton in 2016 and not him

from The Blaze:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) made a bold prediction about the remaining presidential elections in his lifetime during an interview with Glenn Beck that aired Thursday.

“I think Republicans will not win again in my lifetime … unless they become a new GOP, a new Republican Party,” Paul said evenly. “And it has to be a transformation. Not a little tweaking at the edges.”

Paul remained noncommittal about his own speculated presidential ambitions, but said he believes people “from both parties” would rally to a candidate that said “we just need to turn over on all this” and advocated issues like term limits, reading the bills, and single-purpose bills.

The senator expressed little interest in the formation of a third party.

“I think that … you can transform a party,” he maintained. “…I’ve worked for a third party candidate, a guy that was my dad. It’s very difficult. The laws are set against you.”

From the Wall Street Journal:

The collapse of ObamaCare is the tip of the iceberg for the magical                                       Obama                                 presidency.

From the moment he emerged in the public eye with his 2004 speech at the Democratic Convention and through his astonishing defeat of the Clintons in 2008, Barack Obama’s calling card has been credibility. He speaks, and enough of the world believes to keep his presidency afloat. Or used to.

All of a sudden, from Washington to Riyadh, Barack Obama’s credibility is melting.

Amid the predictable collapse the past week of HealthCare.gov’s too-complex technology, not enough notice was given to Sen.                                       Marco Rubio‘s                                 statement that the chances for success on immigration reform are about dead. Why? Because, said Sen. Rubio, there is “a lack of trust” in the president’s commitments.
