The Announcement Isn’t the Real Hillary News

This is the real Hillary news:

This campaign will…build up to an effort likely to cost more than any presidential bid waged before, with Mrs. Clinton’s supporters and outside “super PACs” looking to raise as much as $2.5 billion in a blitz of donations from Democrats who overwhelmingly support her candidacy.

This is the reason Hillary Clinton has effectively cleared the Democratic field and the reason (even if unconscious) so many Democrats are enthusiastic about her: She’s a juggernaut. The fact that her campaign people could seriously be looking at $2.5 billion when the Obama and Romney campaigns together spent a little less than $2 billion just three years ago gives an indication of Hillary’s sheer power.

    I think the possibility of her spending $2+ billion is not so much Clinton being a “juggernaut”, but more of an indication of the relentless pace of inflation.

    DO NOT LET YOUNG CHILDREN AND PREGNANT WOMEN LOOK AT HER FACE. WE NEED A NEW PERSEUS TU CHOP HER HEAD OFF

    And all through the campaign the Republicans will be tarred as ‘the party of the rich’. It’ll work too. Americans aren’t as smart as I used to think they were.

    Hillary’s got everything going for her except the approval of voters.

      and that would be great news, if true !

    What the hell is wrong with the Democrats? Is this really the best they can do? After the useless presidency of the arrogant narcissist Obama are they really going to chose this woman who’s spent her whole life achieving precisely nothing apart from power?

    But I say bring on the Hillary candidacy. No Democrat is more beatable. She’s gonna spend a year selling her non-existent record of achievement and trying to deflect
    unanswered questions about Benghazi, emails, murky fundraising, Travelgate, etc, etc…

    My own particular favorite is the Hillary tapes where she laughs about getting the rapist of a 12 year old girl off with two months prison time. There’s more on that here: http://john-moloney.blogspot.com/

    Imagine all those foolish drones who are duped into giving money to her campaign

    As Ripley said in Aliens, “did IQ’s just drop sharply while I was gone”

    Eight years ago, her campaign people knew that she was a shoo-in; now, they know she’ll raise $2.5billion. She may be the first great lawn-dart of the campaign.
