Comments on: Clinton in 2012? Why not, Huffington says. http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/06/10/clinton-in-2012-why-not-huffington-says/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Howard http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/06/10/clinton-in-2012-why-not-huffington-says/#comment-349690 Tue, 01 Jul 2008 17:10:18 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/06/10/clinton-in-2012-why-not-huffington-says/#comment-349690 Where in the Hell did this caustic obnoxious person, Arriana Huffington come from? I think it started by her getting a bunch of money from a divorce. How come she spews her distorted views with such impunity? She’s harder to listen to than Fran Dresher, and has less relevant things to say! Why isn’t there an equally powerful opposing blog site on the internet? We sure need one.

(Barack and Jackson)Hillary and Ferraro were pioneers, but there will be much better (African American) female leaders who are trustworthy and compassionate as well as intelligent, wise and well versed in the games of American politics. Having become well versed, a sincere (African American)female candidate will seek to change the game so that the American people have a good shot at winning for once.

“Until then, perhaps it is best to support McCain, in order to stamp out the sexism… neither racism (the immediate response to the satire above, transposing the words with the previous post by Jemille) nor sexism (clearly displayed in this post) have any place in the hope for tomorrow… If Obama has the courage necessary to be a leader, he should pick Clinton to bring people together and send a signal that he is truly above sexism and the racism of Rev. Wright.”

Her articles are stupid. Can’t believe anyone would believe or like them.

Vote Green or Liberal or Independent. Vote for someone new. Break the system. Change the world. America is crying for change.”

I too support the green party and believe America needs a third party (and a fourth and a fifth! why not?). BUT NOT THIS YEAR. An independent cannot win in the electoral system as it stands– and if we do not vote Bush/Cheney/McCain OUT, the consequences will be beyond measure. Vote independent in your local elections– build a party, but do not throw away your presidential vote.

Too much is at stake: the Supreme Court, our basic civil liberties and rights, the national debt, the economy, the environment, the infrastructure of our country, the education system. Not to mention the ongoing trillion dollar fiasco in Iraq.

You must vote Obama this year if you want change. Not voting for Obama is a vote for McCain.

Time and time again during the primaries she and this website were bashing Hillary at every spoken (or unspoken) word, a gesture, and what not! Now to make a turnaround and have kind words for Hillary is just nauseating.

For whatever flaws Hillary has (and who doesn’t), she cares deeply about this country and the people. She has the passion, the intelligence and the tenacity. How can one not stick with her?

It’s hard to support Obama after this long and bitter primary campaign. Alas, for the greater good I do hope Obama wins, just because I don’t want McCain to win. But it would have been much better if Hillary were the Democratic nominee.

If Hillary were the nominee, people would have voted her the president because they liked her. Obama may win because he is not as bad a choice as McCain. That’s the difference.

Huffington didn’t say there was no sexism in India. She said she didn’t think there was more sexism here than in India, for example. And I’m not sure where you get the idea that sexism and arranged marriages are one and the same. Nor is it restricted to class. Many parents across the social spectrum arrange marriages for both their sons and daughters.
Thanks for commenting on the blog post, meanwhile! Happy to have you here.

Her website was one of the biggest points of Obama spam and anti-Clinton hate during the campaign, with not a word about sexism until now.
Now she’s just going along with the ‘Suck up to Clinton supporters’ agenda. No-one buys it.

The upper class still chooses husbands for their eligible daughters for God sake!
