Video: Hillary’s “Countdown”

posted at 5:33 pm on December 31, 2007 by Bryan

As the tipster noted, fresh from politicizing Christmas, Hillary Clinton politicizes New Year’s.

Couple of things worth noting here. First, unlike the Christmas ad, Hillary actually names the holiday that this ad marks. Second, her wish for your happy new year is entirely political. If you don’t like her take on the issues she presents, this ad isn’t for you. Therefore, once again, what Hillary puts forth is really more about her than anyone else. She’s not wishing for your prosperity, health, family, faith or country, she’s just counting down the days until she has the reins of power so she can do what she wants. For your own good, of course, as your “champion.” One last point. Like the Christmas ad, Team Hillary has produced this one in a way that makes it easy to parody.

Update: Hillary should countdown to getting herself up to speed on Pakistan’s election process.

Great analysis, Bryan and the update is stunning.

I’ll take any Republican (except Paul) over her and will not be having a tantrum if any of my preferred candidates don’t get the nomination.

Anyone who thinks they can “teach Republicans a lesson” by sitting out the election and electing Hillary by default can’t possibly conceive what a dangerous world it is in which we live.

Sounded like ten nails being pounded into the coffin of a free America.

A smoking cannon. No fun or parody about that. Dang.

It’s sad to think that there is anyone in Iowa who would vote for Clinton. It’s even more mindboggling than voting for Chavez. It destroys my fantasy of middle-America being fundamentally sensible and good.

Someone wrote (maybe here) that Iowa has become a strange agricultural leftist society where government subsidies have created a Katrina class and mentality. Stunning if true.

The writer suggested in the future that the first Republican primary be held elsewhere, maybe Utah.

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We shall preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

The rendezvous has not ended, my friends.

And the left still wants to take us on that last step.

Simply a derivative of the Communist Manifesto with bullet points.

TheSitRep on December 31, 2007 at 6:12 PM

A new beginning, huh?

Besides being redundant, there was a new beginning back in 1993 as well.

In fact, that was the theme of Clinton’s first inaugural.

In charge of the events are Mr. Clinton’s best fund-raiser and image-makers: Rahm Emanuel, the 32-year-old Clinton campaign finance director, and two close friends of the President-elect, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason. They are the husband-wife team that created the television hits “Designing Women” and “Evening Shade,” as well as the film biography of Mr. Clinton, “The Man from Hope,” shown at the Democratic convention.

Mr. Emanuel said the occasion would emphasize “change, hope, opportunity — a new beginning and also the reunited states.”

There is still lingering evidence.

Hillary is so stuck in the sixties. I’m afraid alot of people forget what it was really like under the mismanagment of the Democrats that includes LBJ and Carter. Bill Clinton had the Reagan economic tsumani to ride. If you think we have things so bad now you ain’t seen nothin yet!

The “new beginning” sounds a bit like Year Zero to me.

Hannibal Smith on December 31, 2007 at 6:44 PM

Is this Pelosi whispering in ConHillary’s ears as suggestions for a proper clean up,of course not.
This is all Hillary,all the time and everywhere
just imagine,it will be 1984 Hillary Orwellian style.
You’ll be scootin in and out of tv channels trying to get
to fox,and accidently clicked CNN for a micro-second to
long,and the achorettes will tell us the economy is the best
it’s been in a century,Global Warming”PooF”just evaporated
into thin air and Kubaya,no more War on Terror,peace and
Nirvana.

Hillary will own and manipulate the media,lets put it this
way.Hillary will keep tabs on her political opponents,you
know the crazy accusations Moonbat’s carry forth about being
spied on by the government,much like that.(Problem is
the Bush Administration spies only on foreign enemy’s
and not on private American citizen’s as portrayed by the
Liberal media.)

Hillary will be rolling out free government services
hand over fist,to buy her next four years in office.

Here’s Hillary’s bottom line,you’ll get a bit of
Canada,a bit of England and a ton of France!

Sonnyspats1:I was mulling that sixties with Hillary,
imagine instead of chasing communists
your hauled off to tesify about Global
Warming,like the McCarthism era!

I am seeing on Drudge…”oh okay everybody lets choose now”. UH no. We aint choosin a damn thing until we get some candidates who are worth a shit. Pardon my bluntness but the election games have to stop and get these out of date, out of tune, candidates the hell of the stage and put some real people up there who can face the worlds issues and the modern day problems our country faces.

What the Hillary’s want, is to see where they are failing the test at then go back and change the damn test before the lection comes. uh no. Hillary can forget it. make one important note. Since we dont know WHY she wants back in that WHite House, lets also ask WHY she is still with Bill. Notice she’s not in public with him that I am aware of anyway, but yet he’s still going to be allowed in teh White House with her if by chance some matter/antimatter parallel universe crossing causes her to get in there.

Sorry folks, she is bad bad news. There are too many unanswered questions and she is hiding too many things even after having been in the WHite House once, we still dont have answers to.

Watch Iowa and NH very closely because the massive voter fraud you’ll see there giving Hillary the win will just be a practice run for what you’ll see in November 2008 giving her the nation.

Buzzy on December 31, 2007 at 8:01 PM

If any of the major Republican presidential candidates had spoken in this manner about the scheduled elections in Pakistan, surely an issue would be made of it.

Incessently. But for HRC, not a word.

That’s some sick feces right there. Do not want.

The trouble I’ve had with selecting among the Republican candidates this time around is that the Prime Directive this year for me is “Anyone but Hillary.” Sure, I may have Phred Phantasies, or admire the nice set of brass ones on Mayor G, or grudgingly acquiesce to the exquisite balance and inevitability of Republican Slick, but I swear, my primary qualification for a candidate this year is that he or she isn’t Hillary.

McCain with his temper and his bizarre notions of what it means to be a Republican? Sure. Huckabee, with his insane cluelessness about economics and foreign policy? Why not. Ron Freakin Paul? I think I’d pull the lever. Don’t even ask what I’d do in an impossible Clinton-Kucinich race. Anything to keep that witch away from the power she wants. Talk me out of it, if you can.

Bryan, The only bone I have to pick with your comments is that New Years is a holiday in the way we celebrate veterans, MLK, or Christopher Columbus. Hillary is safe in naming names here in the way she couldn’t when dealing with celebrations based on the birth of the individual who most Americans believe saved mankind by His ultimate sacrifice. Just saying……

I beginning to think I’m the only one who thinks Hillary’s nomination will hurt the Democrat party. She’s polarizing to begin with and she clearly hates Christians. How on earth is this hate-filled woman going to bring “red leaning” folks to vote for the party of the ass? She just isn’t a nice person on any level.

As a conservative Republican I’m not complaining but if I were a Democrat, I’d be looking at the lesser candidates at this point rather than settling between Hillary, Obama, and Edwards. The GOP vetting process has certainly been far more rigorous.

highhopes on December 31, 2007 at 10:50 PM

Once the American people have it KNOCKED into their heads …endlessly..what “RICH” means..Hillary will no longer be relevant…

For some reason they say that word “RICH” as if you have to be a millionare to be rich …

but the reality of “RICH” is what my dad told me was “middle class”..

When the middle class become the rich..we are all in fricking trouble…

that is the drum that needs to be beat
slow
and steady.

..regardless who is saying anything about the
“EVIL RICH” be it Hillary, Obama, Dodd, Richardson…blah blah blah

Once people realize that pretty much everyone is the ” EVIL RICH”they will realize the manipulation that is sooooooooooooooooo apparent

god help us all

oh

and a joyous new year to all

Hillary’s claim that she undertook a dangerous mission into Bosnia or whereever it is she went is so laughable that one would think that the MSM would at least ask her about it. If it was such a vital mission, why then did she bring along teenage daughter Chelsea and comedian Sinbad? Nobody in the MSM will ask her that question. Did Chelsea and Sibad regularly travel on government airplanes for high level meetings? The fact that a comedian and a teenager went on the trip shows how ceremonial the meeting was. Second, if the mission was so vital, was Hillary usurping the authority and power of the Secretary of State? Will anybody ask Hillary if she was making foreign policy or negotiating with foreign leaders when that is the Secretary of State’s job? Regarding the corkscrew landing that she says the airplane made, is Hillary claiming that her life was endangered? If she was going on such a harrowing mission, would not the pilots have told her before the flight that there might be a very difficult landing and maybe nonessential people like the teenage daughter and the comedian be left home? Is Hillary claiming that the pilot was so careless and indifferent that he would not tell her this information and notify her of the flight risks? Or if the pilot did tell Hillary, then what does it say about Hillary that she risks the safety of nonessential people anyway? The flight logs are available somewhere. Will any enterprising reporter request the flight logs and actually check into whether Hillary Clinton actually survived a white knuckle landing? My estimation is that Hillary grossly exaggerated everything about this “mission” knowing that the Clintons always get away with their fibs. Recall that Hillary Clinton is so selfabsorbed that when “It Takes a Village” came out, Hillary would not allow her ghost writer to appear even as a coauthor. And Hillary did not stop there. In her acknowledgements, Hillary does not even mention the name of the woman who actually wrote the book. HRC can not even give the real author one sentence of thanks.
I feel like a one man investigavtive reporter when it comes to the Clintons. They can’t fool me.

Chant along with us now, everyone:

“B!”

“Happy Hillary Nightmare!!” (Wheeeee!~)

A perfect ad for her supporters, people who want to be led and not have to think.
