I'm in. And I'm in to win.
Yeah, there's a big surprise.
Today I am announcing that I will form an exploratory committee to run for president.
...and crush and humiliate Obama in the process.
And I want you to join me not just for the campaign but for a conversation about the future of our country -- about the bold but practical changes we need to overcome six years of Bush administration failures.
Six years where he had to fling the dung you and your husband left not only on the Constitution but to replace the "W" on all the White House keyboards. How childish can you be?
I am going to take this conversation directly to the people of America, and I'm starting by inviting all of you to join me in a series of web chats over the next few days.
Where I will take no hard questions, or criticism of any kind.
The stakes will be high when America chooses a new president in 2008.
I agree with you. Did Hell just freeze over?
As a senator, I will spend two years doing everything in my power to limit the damage George W. Bush can do. But only a new president will be able to undo Bush's mistakes and restore our hope and optimism.
You had EIGHT years to let terrorism fester! Do you think we need to give you any more time?!? Undo what he has thankfully restored in many ways? Oh and by the way, when Bush speaks, I DO feel optimism. When you speak, I hear fingernails on a chalkboard. And you know what I am talkin' about.
Only a new president can renew the promise of America -- the idea that if you work hard you can count on the health care, education, and retirement security that you need to raise your family. These are the basic values of America that are under attack from this administration every day.
DO NOT "Mommy" me! I make the decisions for my life, THAT is the value of America, the individual, not YOU making my decisions.
And only a new president can regain America's position as a respected leader in the world.
Then why are people going through hoops to get here, if they didn't want to be here? Our position is not in jeopardy, except by the jihadists. And it seems to me I have seen pictures of you and your daughter in hijabs.
I believe that change is coming November 4, 2008. And I am forming my exploratory committee because I believe that together we can bring the leadership that this country needs. I'm going to start this campaign with a national conversation about how we can work to get our country back on track.
You are no leader, I will not follow, and George Bush has gotten this country more on track.
Oh the horror of life under the Bush Debacle!
Let’s see, last time I checked,
1. The stock market is at an all-time high, thus
2. Retirement accounts are at last recovering.
3. Unemployment is at a 25-year low,
4. Taxes are at 20-year lows,
5. Federal revenues are at all-time highs,
6. The Federal deficit is down almost 50%,
7. Real estate values have soared,
8. Inflation is at a 20-year low,
9. There have been no successful attacks since 9/11,
10. Al Queda is being taken apart, one body at a time.
11. U.S. and British Intelligence have thwarted a number of attacks.
12. The terrorists are flocking to Iraq to be killed, instead of boarding planes for this country.
This is a big election with some very big questions. How do we bring the war in Iraq to the right end? How can we make sure every American has access to adequate health care? How will we ensure our children inherit a clean environment and energy independence? How can we reduce the deficits that threaten Social Security and Medicare?
Good gravy woman! You TRIED HillaryCare and guess what? NO ONE WANTED IT!!! Bush tried to fix Social Security and you OBSTRUCTED it's measures! And how do we win in Iraq? Crush islamism. But you do not get that.
No matter where you live, no matter what your political views, I want you to be a part of this important conversation right at the start. So to begin, I'm going to spend the next several days answering your questions in a series of live video web discussions. Starting Monday, January 22, at 7 p.m. EST for three nights in a row, I'll sit down to answer your questions about how we can work together for a better future. And you can participate live at my website. Sign up to join the conversation here.
Oh yeah. I will be right there. NOT.
I grew up in a middle-class family in the middle of America, where I learned that we could overcome every obstacle we face if we work together and stay true to our values.
Who cares where you grew up? Why aren't you THERE representing them instead of foisting yourself on MY home state where you are not wanted?
I have worked on issues critical to our country almost all my life. I've fought for children for more than 30 years. In Arkansas, I pushed for education reform. As First Lady, I helped to expand health care coverage to millions of children and to pass legislation that dramatically increased adoptions. I also traveled to China to affirm that women's rights are human rights.
Ummm, hello? Anyone there? As First Lady you cannot PASS anything! (except maybe kidney stones). Oh and the phrase "lady" does not apply to you. From dictionary.com "lady=a woman who is refined, polite, and well-spoken". You are NONE of those things, oh PantSuited One. And explain to me, WHY were you in China? On the taxpayer's dime? Where you authorized? We have a STATE DEPARTMENT for that. Or don't you understand constitutional separation of powers? And they edited your book, doncha know. You were probably in violation of the Logan Act, but then trifles like the law do not bother you.
And in the Senate, I have worked across party lines to get billions more for children's health care, to stop the president's plan to privatize Social Security, and to make sure the victims and heroes of 9/11 and our men and women in uniform receive the fair treatment they deserve. In 2006, I led the successful fight to make Plan B contraception available to women without a prescription.
ok, you are a nut. First, you say you want to fix Social Security and then you cop to stopping the fix. You say you want to give fair treatment to the victims of 9/11 but where was your voice denouncing the Crescent of Embrace memorial? And birth control is a fight? Are you saying women are too stupid to know who to bang and who not to bang? We know you certainly couldn't manage your own home, so stay out of ours.
I have spent a lifetime opening opportunities for tens of millions who are working hard to raise a family: new immigrants, families living in poverty, people who have no health care or face an uncertain retirement.
A lifetime of open borders and picking the pockets of people who have worked hard for their money to redistribute it? Thanks a bunch.
The promise of America is that all of us will have access to opportunity, and I want to run a 2008 campaign that renews that promise, a campaign built on a lifetime record of results.
Your results suck. Someone is going to have to come behind you and scrape up the muck you have left.
I have never been afraid to stand up for what I believe in or to face down the Republican machine. After nearly $70 million spent against my campaigns in New York and two landslide wins, I can say I know how Washington Republicans think, how they operate, and how to beat them.
BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You couldn't even "face down" Ann Coulter. You made a half-hearted comment against her Jersey Girls harpie remark, and she spit back, yeah well tell Hillary to talk to her husband about Juanitta, then we will talk, and you never opened your mouth again, and NEVER faced her. And what a stupid remark: campaigns in NEW YORK will help me in WASHINGTON. No, you have your attack dogs out now on your competitors. They need to watch their backs.
I need you to be a part of this campaign, and I hope you'll start by joining me in this national conversation.
Oh yes indeed, if only to keep you out of the White House and the Senate.
As we campaign to win the White House, we will make history and remake our future. We can only break barriers if we dare to confront them, and if we have the determined and committed support of others.
What barriers? Name them please. So you can be the FIRST woman president, I guess. Frankly my dear, you are no Margaret Thatcher. Or Jeanne Kirkpatrick. Spare us.
This campaign is our moment, our chance to stand up for the principles and values that we cherish; to bring new ideas, energy, and leadership to a uniquely challenging time. It's our chance to say "we can" and "we will."
The only thing you value is yourself. You don't care who or what brings you to power. Including the Saudis, who financed your husband's pathetic library. We can and we will stop you.
Let's go to work. America's future is calling us.
You are right about that! We are saying STFD, STFU, go home and get out of politics. And take your husband with you.
