The right has to be very careful on how they come at hilary on her age. People will say "but what about mccain the democrats killed him". That's true, but attacking man for being old doesn't come nearly with the same negative reaction as attacking a female for being old the same way calling a man ugly or fat doesn't come with same reaction as calling a woman ugly or fat.

One wacky comment by a crazy guy on the campaign trail and it becomes the war on women 2016 which will absolutely bury the republicans. Id hate for that to happen though because the democrats aint s*** and hilary is just another corporatist Wall Street tool

Also her health will be an issue, whether legit or not and finally, some are saying, wow: he was losing it during his second term, do we want another Pres. that might have mental problems due to aging? So bring up Reagan as an example might do more damage than good. It is true women generally out live men, but her family history of aging and mental status might play a role if anyone decides to dig deep enough.
please elaborate. Are you an expert on aging and mental health?

No she's just incompetent and you know, too short.
And just too damned ugly!

I don't know. Hil has already taken a tough stance on whether Benghazi is important and/or a political gameship. Twice, already. First time was her tough b**ch testimony when she was still responsible at the State Department. Second, in the early release of that so important Benghazi chapter of her memwhah, "...it does not matter, because I said it does not.".

No, something tells me she doesn't react very well to scrutiny, vis-a-vis, her and her campaign's 2008 meltdown against the current White House resident. I think the Republicans are just applying a little stress to see how she reacts. They can learn a lot, and maybe do a little damage to The Virgin Queen.

The Blue Wall?

I love it when someone anchoring some silly TV show comes up with a slogan and the sheepies run with it.

Clue: The Blue Wall and The Blue Line refers to cops. It has nothing to do with moronic democrats.

The Blue Wall.

That's downright amusing.

Hillary was an old lady back in the 90's.

She couldn't remember where she hid the subpoenaed Rose Law Firm billing records for two years.

Now she's ancient, feeble, and senile.

She couldn't even show up after the Benghazi Terrorist attack.

Yes, she is too old for the White House, and it shows.

Holding Democratic 'blue wall' was crucial for Obama victory - CNN.com

Here's a little education for you. We elect the POTUS based on the EC count. The Blue Wall refers to a mainly coastal (both) set of states blue by wide margins since 1988. Unlike the middle of nowhere (a/k/a the GOP Red Wall), these states have tremendous quantities of electoral votes, starting the Dems off very close to the goal-270.

Fox has talked about the Blue Wall. I will not join in calling them silly.

lol. Looks like acne. No blue wall there.

And everybody with an IQ over 10 knows how 0bama got elected the first time.

Clue: ACORN!

The second time?

Who knows! In my case, I stayed home because I refused to vote for Romney.

And still leading every potential GOP candidate by near blowout margins (9 to 14 points) in the Real Clear Politics averages (a Republican news aggregator by the way).

Sounds like a Tea Party Meeting to me!

In 2008 BO won by nearly 10 million votes. Does anyone in their right mind think that ACORN or anyone else could fabricate 10 million votes?
