"Hillary! Come back, Hillary!"

Welly welly well well well. Looks like the Democratic party (and no small number of Republicans) has come to regret the way it treated Hillary Clinton in 2008. Bloomberg:
Nearly two-thirds of Americans hold a favorable view of her and one-third are suffering a form of buyer’s remorse, saying the U.S. would be better off now if she had become president in 2008 instead of Barack Obama.
And here is CNN, making the same point.

Hm. Shall I wave the bloody shirt once again? Yes. Yes, I believe I will. Here's what the progressive blogs (mainly HuffPo and Daily Kos) were saying about Hillary and the Clinton wing of the party back in 2008:
A Hillary supporter, for 5 mins, on CNN, whining and crying about about Obamas lack of experience, and how he STILL needs to earn her vote! I've come to the conclusion, these folks are plain unbalanced! They don't need to be convinced, they need meds!
Hillary is a liar and a cunt
They're all crazy cunts,taze them all!!!!!!
That last one was about the PUMA crowd. Jeez, if any movement has ever been justified by history...
if hillary is elected we're gonna be stuck with whomever she picks as a running mate for the remainder of the term after she gets assasinated.
Poll question: Did Hillary Clinton murder Benzir Bhutto as some rival campaigns suggest?
The poll was conducted on Democratic Underground. 95% of respondents said that Hillary killed Benazir Bhutto. Think about that, next time someone on D.U. says that it's the tea partiers who have gone nuts. (Granted, they are nuts, but the D.U. crowd went nuts first.)
Watch the 'The Clinton Chronicles', free on Google Video! A tale of cocaine Trafficing and murder in Arkansas!
That endorsement for a notorious concoction of lies and smears appeared on Alternet.
Cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt CUNT cunt cunt cunt CUNT cunt cunt cunt CUNT CUNT CUNT CUNT . . . Yo! Cunt!
it is really the Bush/Clinton crime family.
Of course, the anti-Hillary crowd was also stridently anti-Bill Clinton:
The Vince Foster Issue Should Be Investigated Again. Clintons just showed that their ambitions know no limit.
The Clinton death list The following is a partial list of deaths of persons connected to President Clinton during his tenure as Governor of Arkansas and/or while President of the United States and thereafter. Read the list and judge for yourself...
The list began with Barbara Olson, who was killed during 9/11. Implication: Clinton did it!
Maybe if Huffington Post existed in 1992 and Americans, especially ALL Democrats were able to understand who and what you are and represent, you would never have become our President. You, sir, are unquestionably, A DOUCHEBAG and a criminal one at that.
Y'know what's really hilarious about this? In 1992, Arianna Huffington more or less was Michele Bachmann -- an ultra-libertarian religious freak lusting for power. The difference: Huffington, born in Greece, could not run for president directly. So she tried to "Lady MacBeth" her way into power via her easily manipulated gay husband. The audacity of her stratagem and the nudity of her ambition made Aaron Burr seem like a man of small vision. Then she (allegedly) switched sides and waltzed into the Democratic party as though she owned the joint. In 2008, she did everything imaginable to destroy her hated CLEEEN-ton wing of the party.

Now we have Obama. How's that working out for ya, Huffpo fans?

I will not permit anyone to rewrite history on this score. False equivalences are odious; it is not the case that there were "problems on both sides." The Obama wing was 100 percent guilty; the Clinton wing was 100 percent innocent. Yes, it really is that simple: The Obots cannot escape the evidence of their own ink.

The quotes given above were not isolated; they are representative of the sheer horrifying shit that the Obots lobbed into the American conversation every minute of every hour of every day throughout that campaign. The vile, indefensible Obama campaign of 2008 (especially in its online manifestation) destroyed the Democratic party.

To paraphrase Richard Pryor: I ain't never gonna forget.

To paraphrase Winston Churchill: History will be unkind to the Obots, because I intend to write it.

You're on fire today Joseph.

If only Hillary would dare to step into the void and challenge Obama, but listening to Hillary it seems highly unlikely that she would seek to run UNLESS Obama does an LBJ.

Can you imagine what would happen in obotland if Obama declined to run and Hillary jumped back into the ring?

And what would happen in Obotland if Obama's failing poll numbers and Hillary's popularity drove him to shed Biden and pick Hillary as his VP/Running mate?

What would the Daily KOSsacks and Americablo and all the others who chose hopey/changey/empty suit over the Talented, Experienced, Accomplished Hillary, do?

I've read numerous stories about worry within the party that Obama is going to fail in 2012 an in the process take every Dem who's up in 2012 down with him. If those stories are true can a whisper in Obama's ear be far behind?

And of course....every time we complained, we were called racists.

Interesting thing is that the Obots went wild on anyone of color, especially in DC...and the press pretended no one went.

Hillary won't run, because they will say his loss was due to her, we have a choice of DINO Obama and the GOP nominee. ;-(

Will it be Flat Earth or the millionaire that claims to be unemployed like many Americans and lives in one state and claims to live in the cellar in another.

I love it. I have NEVER forgotten and I never will -- nor will I let one single Obot off the hook for their behavior.

Even though I can no longer support Hillary (I can't support any of them, Dem or Rep), as a former supporter I take great satisfaction in seeing the "I told you so!!!" unfold, and fully intend to issue regular Nelson-esque "HA ha!"s to every Obot I can.
