    Here Are The Words Hillary’s Supporters Won’t Let You Say

    “We will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism,” the pro-Hillary group HRC Super Volunteers warned The New York Times’ Amy Chozick Wednesday.
    Here are the words that you can’t use to describe Clinton:

    polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident, Secretive, “will do anything to win”, “represents the past”, “out of touch”
    Fortunately: "retarded donkey", "shrill bitch", "socialist wackadoo", "doormat", and "incompetent fool" are still allowed and not considered coded sexism.

    Hillary's lawyer discloses she expunged her email server hard drive

    In a six-page letter released late Friday, Kendall said Clinton had turned over to the State Department all work-related emails sent or received during her tenure as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
    Kendall also said it would be pointless for Clinton to turn over her server, even if legally authorized, since "no emails ... reside on the server or on any backup systems associated with the server."
    Well played, lol. I would think that this sort of behavior would disqualify her from any serious consideration by voters, but then I'm sure her base are equally, if not more dishonest and corrupt. Now we'll never know if Hillary solicited "contributions" from ISIS, Kim Jong-Un, or the Ayatollah Khamenei.

    She may even wear a hood and chop off people's heads. How could anyone possibly think of voting for her? Surely, she's evil personified.

    Some of the more shallow voters want a female in the white house. Basically, they want some vagina and they're willing to overlook her incompetence, stupidity, and lack of moral character.

    Perhaps the shallow voters who "want some vagina" also wear hoods and cut off people's heads. The horror of it all . . .

    My only question is whether Ted and his political advisers actually think he can win in the general. His congressional baggage and history of being a bomb thrower and fire starter have burned most of the bridges he would need to mount a serious general election campaign. Not to mention the extreme nature of his positioning.

    Part of me thinks he and his people know all this, but want to maximize his power in the senate and solidify his role as king of the firebrands. This actually would make a lot of sense insofar as many people with no chance run just to heighten their personal profiles.

    The problem with that theory is that he is polling more strongly than the also rans I liken him to above. His polling strength (especially since his announcement) may have convinced him that he actually has a chance. Either way I'm not really worried because I can't see him coming out of a debate with Rubio, Paul, and Bush looking like the adult in the room. Yea he fires (some) people up but does he ever look presidential? I think not.

    Walker has a lot of things going for him, but I'll be curious to see how he comes off when compared to candidates with more polished public persona's especially Rubio who seems to have the greatest amount of talent in that arena.

    Given that the Dems will have held the WH for 8 years in '16 I find Alan Abramowitz's Time for Change political model compelling when trying to forecast 2016. As does the National Journal and a host of other sources.

    From the National Journal:

    Predictive Intelligence

    Think Hillary Clinton is likely to win? Think again.

    An excerpt.

    But outside of the capital, from Georgia to New York to California, there's another set of political professionals watching this race: academics and model-makers. And based on the data they track, Democrats have little reason to be so bullish about Clinton's chances.

    "Viewing her as a prohibitive favorite at this point is misplaced, definitely," says Alan Abramowitz.

    Abramowitz isn't a Republican pollster or a professional Clinton-hater. He's a political science professor at Emory University in Atlanta. And he and his ilk—the wonky academics who research in anonymity while pundits predict races on TV—offer the most compelling case for reconsidering Clinton as the likely winner.
    ....

    The best-known forecasting tool of the bunch—and one that plainly spells out Clinton's looming trouble—is Abramowitz's "Time for Change" model. He first built it before George H.W. Bush's 1988 election, and he has used it to predict the winner of the popular vote in the seven White House races since. (The model predicted that Al Gore would win the presidency in 2000, when he became the first person since Grover Cleveland to earn the majority of the popular vote nationally but lose the Electoral College.)

    The model uses just three variables to determine the winner: the incumbent's approval rating, economic growth in the second quarter of the election year, and the number of terms the candidate's party has held the White House. Official forecasts aren't made until the summer before the presidential election. But reasonable estimates rooted in current political and economic conditions demonstrate Clinton's vulnerability.

    Consider this scenario: President Obama retains equal levels of approval and disapproval, better than he has had most of his second term; and gross domestic product growth in the second quarter of 2016 holds at 2.4 percent, the same as last year's rate of growth. Under this scenario, the "Time for Change" model projects that Clinton will secure just 48.7 percent of the popular vote.

    In other words, she loses.

    Slight increases in Obama's approval rating and economic growth aren't enough to change the outcome for Clinton. Every 10-point improvement in the president's approval—if, for example, 55 percent of voters approved of Obama while 45 percent didn't—earns Clinton only an additional 1 percentage point of the popular vote. It takes an extra 1 percent year-over-year GDP growth to give Clinton an extra half percentage point of the popular vote.

    For Clinton to reach 50 percent of the popular vote, under this model's rules, the president would need to see a 5-point increase in his approval rating and GDP growth would have to hit 3.5 percent. It's certainly possible, but it's fair to call that a best-case scenario for Obama in his final year as president.
    ....

    The reason Clinton struggles under seemingly decent conditions is obvious. After one party holds the presidency for two terms, voters want change. In the model, this desire for a new direction manifests itself as a 4-point reduction in the candidate's take of the popular vote compared with what candidates could expect had their party held the White House for just one term.

    "One of the regularities you'll find for all presidential elections since World War II is, after a party has been in power eight years and is trying to hold on to the White House for a third consecutive term, it gets harder," Abramowitz says. "Another way of looking at it: In the first election after a party takes over the White House, you have a significant advantage. And the next time, after you've held another term, you lose that advantage."

    Good luck to Rand Paul; for some reason, his message is resonating with more younger voters (cough*legalized marijuana*cough). He's my pick for president. Senator Paul thinks he can peel some African American voters away from the Dems; not sure this is possible, but it can't hurt to try.

    As radio host Mark Levin pointed out earlier, the establishment Republicans (Jeb Bush and Karl Rove) are already attacking Senator Paul with a $1 million ad campaign on Fox News and elsewhere. Rove just described Paul's message as "pro-dope".

    We're starting to see the hostile lefty media attack every GOP candidate by asking nothing about their solutions to the problems facing the nation (jobs, economy, national debt, healthcare) but instead focusing on far left red-meat issues like gay marriage, conversion therapy, and abortion.

    I just saw a bit of Chris Cuomo's "interview" of Dr. Ben Carson on CNN last night and he hounded Dr. Carson for an answer on conversion therapy. No offense, but most Americans don't care about this issue; this is yet another attempt by radical leftists to paint Republicans as sexist, bigotted, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and dumb. It worked in 2008 and 2012 with the younger and dumber voters. I'd just like to see some smart Republicans come up with a counter. Ideally, I'd love to see a Republican candidate completely ignore the questions and just get his/her message out.

    More hounding, this time of Rand Paul by Savanah Guthrie of NBC's morning show. David Gregory of NBC news, Katie Couric, and George Stephanoupoulos all hounded Republican candidates with stupid, irrelevant questions. I think Reince Priebus, GOP chair, should seriously think of boycotting NBC.

    Some of the harshest criticism of Secretary Clinton comes from liberal journalists like Carl Bernstein. In 2011, he wrote a piece for HuffPo about the former first lady.

    Hillary Clinton: Truth or Consequences

    Evidently, Hillary has a rich history of lying and destroying evidence.

    On her book tour, she was asked on National Public Radio about the re-emergence of dormant Whitewater questions that week, when the so-called "missing billing records" had been found. Hillary stated with unequivocal certainty that she had consistently made public all the relevant documents related to Whitewater, including "every document we had," to the editors of the New York Times before the newspaper's original Whitewater story ran during Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign.
    It was simply not true, as her lawyers and the editors of the Times (like CBS in the latest instance) recognized, leading to huge stories about her latest twisting of the facts. "Oh my God, we didn't," said Susan Thomasas, Hillary's great friend, who was left to explain to the White House lawyers exactly how Hillary's aides had carefully cherry-picked documents accessed for the Times in the presidential campaign. The White House was forced -- once again -- to acknowledge the first lady had been 'mistaken;" her book tour was overwhelmed by the matter, and Times' columnist Bill Safire that month coined the memorable characterization of Hillary Clinton as "a congenital liar."
    I have a theory on Hillary; I think she might have a mental illness of some sort. Like Brian Williams, she fervently believes in events that didn't take place. She claimed that she dodged sniper fire on the tarmac in Bosnia. A sane person doesn't do this.
