Republican presidential nominee, said he will run for his sixth term in 2016.
The Arizona Republican, 78, made the announcement Monday in an interview with NBC News ( http://nbcnews.to/... ). He will be 80 by Election Day, but he said his Senate career is "just getting started."
Geezer. (cough, cough). Just go work for Faux news. It'll help you keep your 13 houses. (cough, cough)...
As she and a coterie of advisers prepare to launch her presidential campaign, their work is guided by a new set of humble principles: No big crowds. Few soaring rallies. Less mention of her own ambitions. And extinguish the air of inevitability propelling her candidacy.
But Clinton has told her advisers that she intends to aggressively campaign as though she has a primary opponent, aides say, by listening to concerns of voters and taking great pains to avoid the appearance of a coronation.
One approach is to avoid blatant suggestions of the historic nature of her candidacy, hoping to fight impressions that Clinton's presidential aspirations are all about her.
A discussion is underway for how much to embrace or include the former president at the outset, but aides say Hillary Clinton will be the focal point.
Egypt has a population of 90 million. If this country fails, the whole region will slide into a cycle of anarchy that will represent a grave danger to all countries in this region, including Israel, and would extend to Europe.
Hillary Clinton is a primary candidate whose strength has little precedent, one who seems poised to sweep the primaries without facing any serious challenge.
The general election is a different story. Mrs. Clinton would not cruise to victory, and, yes, she could easily lose.
But Mrs. Clinton will not be a Democratic Eisenhower, a popular, senior statesperson who cruises to an easy victory. Her popularity has already faded considerably over the last two years. Her support could erode even further as the campaign unfolds, or as she comes under new scrutiny, be it for foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation, her private email account as secretary of state or new issues.
As Slate’s Alec MacGillis put it, there is “a sort of collective amnesia among Obama supporters when it comes to their former estimation of Clinton — a reluctance to reckon fully with their aversion to her then and what has come of it since.”
There is also evidence, especially in state polling, that Mrs. Clinton’s support from traditionally Democratic, white, conservative voters is unsustainable — especially in the South and Appalachia.
I can't keep quoting at this point.
We really need an alternative. But there are none.
Again, 6 years of killing the bench, losing States and Congressional seats.
With the Clinton's? Just as you start moving forward, oops...
Emails. Foreign Donations to the Bill, Hillary Chelsea foundation.
I'm not writing this to debate the particulars, whose reporting what or why, but feel free if you want to in the comments.
Some say, all this crap is coming out now to clear the road of issues after the announcement to seek the office. Maybe.
But still, this is the best we got? Rehashing Bill's proclivities and wondering why HRC and staff operated has she did?
This is just all fodder for the opposition.
It is a shame that under this Admin, we have lost seats (state and federal), lost States (Governships and legislatures) and all we have left is the aged leadership with no up and comers. "I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech". Really, tears? Wasn't crying while or after meeting Assad. Crap.
The poem explores the fate of history and the ravages of time—that all prominent figures and the empires they build are impermanent and their legacies fated to decay and oblivion. (Wiki)
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away".
A little creepy, yes?
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
KABUL — The United States and Afghanistan are nearing agreement to rewrite key aspects of their plan for ending U.S. military involvement in the war against Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters here, U.S. and Afghan officials said Saturday.
In a joint appearance, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and visiting U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter acknowledged that they are rethinking the pace of the U.S. military withdrawal, the scope and frequency of U.S. counterterrorism raids and whether they should keep U.S. bases open longer than projected. Although they declined to offer more specifics, they indicated that a new deal could be reached as soon as next month, when Ghani is scheduled to visit Washington to meet with President Obama.
Afghan officials and U.S. military commanders have previously acknowledged pressing Obama for more leeway in determining how quickly the remaining 10,600 U.S. troops in Afghanistan are withdrawn over the next two years. But the comments Saturday by Ghani and Carter were the clearest sign yet that changes are afoot.
Obama had a more non-denominational message for the audience that also included prominent leaders of non-Christian faiths. The president said that while religion is a source for good around the world, people of all faiths have been willing to "hijack religion for their own murderous ends."
"Unless we get on our high horse and think that this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ," Obama said. "In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.
"So it is not unique to one group or one religion," Obama said. "There is a tendency in us, a simple tendency that can pervert and distort our faith."
Obama called for all people of faiths to show humility about their beliefs and reject the idea that "God speaks only to us and doesn't speak to others."
10,000 years ago, tribes killed other tribes, took their women and pillaged the rest. Gee, I never had a horse, let alone a "high" one, I've been oppressed!
