Former Vice President Dick Cheney thinks the time is right for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run against U.S. President Barack Obama.

Mr. Obama's approval numbers have tanked to the lowest level of his presidency amid reports that he plans to sink another $300 billion into a flawed jobs package that will send the national debt soaring even higher.

Obama's prospects in 2012 don't look good. Even Obama's fellow Democrats are sprinting away from him as the chorus of "Run, Hillary, run!" grows ever louder.

Cheney stopped short of endorsing Hillary Clinton for president during an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl yesterday. “I think she’s probably the most competent person they’ve got in their -– in their cabinet," he said. "And -– frankly, I thought she was gonna win the nomination last time around," he added.

“Maybe if -– the Obama record is bad enough -– and these days it’s not very good, given the shape of the economy maybe there will be enough ferment -– in the Democratic Party so that there will be a primary on their side.”

If Hillary decided to run in 2012 she would certainly have the support of the rabidly leftist media on her side -- especially now that they've put down their cups of Kool aid.

    Good morning y'all :bye:

    I've got nothing else to say about this topic :yawn:

  • Crickett

    I don't think Obama will run again, I strongly believe Hilary is the chosen one for the Democratic ticket- with Obama's approval of course.

  • http://twitter.com/_Tainted_Love Tainted_Love

    Hilary will definitely be on the ticket.!

  • Aryanna

    I think he is going to win again... I hope he does. I dont understand why people expected him to fix all this mess within 4 years. This comes from years and years of bad decisions. Give this man another try.

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    Good morning all!
    :cheer: TEAM OBAMA!!

    Well since we are talking about Polls in chyt... Latest poll done on the cabinet which is majority Republican is at an a whopping 12% approval rate... :coffee:
    So I say everybody isn't all pink roses and sunshine towards the azzes that got us in this hole in the first place...

  • Mamacita

    How exactly would Hillary be the better option? Serious question...

    I think Hillary is a seasoned sideline politician. She is not the one for the hot seat!

  • Selle

    I think Hilary will be a very annoying President. The only reason why people are so excited about her running (besides the obvious fact she's a woman) is because they think they're getting Bill again. On the brighter side a lot of women are good with balancing a check book, so maybe she'll manage this money better lol. :think:

  • Yall still crazy

    (IMO) Yall nuts!

    We all know that racism continues here in the USA, but even more than that, is sexism. There is no way that they will put a woman in office to lead the country. They'd rather ride out another 4 with a man than to put a woman in there. This is my opinion...

    Anyhoo, President Obama will win a second term :cheer: (if only because the repubs have wasted 4 yrs with nonsense and have no real leadership, they are all over the board).

    :newbie: <---Sign really says GO HEAD PRESIDENT OBAMA, WE GOT YOUR BACK.

    OAN: I will be watching him tonight. :think: Now let's see if anybody gets disrespectful again in the Chamber...

    :cuss: Pres. GW Bush did all that bullish and ain't not one of them yelled shatt during a speech on live tv :shrug: Hmmm, why's that?! Yall Already Know...

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9d9FA3fCf4 FeFe

    I don't think she should run, I think that it is unfair to judge Obama's presidency based off his first term. That's why I don't like one-term presidents because you can't really see their work until the second 4 years. Every president should be judged on his second term and once Obama is re-elected (because I strongly think he will be) he can truly do what the fluck he wants to do...Hillary should know she's just a pawn to the republicans. I think she's a great and seasoned politician, but I'm not sure what other policies she could push that would trump what has already been tried in this economy... :shrugs:

  • SamYell JacksEm

    So one of the main guys that facilitated this mess and I'm sure advises his party from the sidelines suggests that his opponents should fight amongst each other so they won't consolidate their resources to fight against his folks. :yes:

  • Yall still crazy

    Auntie, please excuse my overuse of emocons I just got carried away with the subject... *serious face* My computer was hacked :lol:

  • Mamacita

    @WUT :lol: Exactly! Of course they want her to run...

    @Anna True, but being a seasoned Polotician doesn't mean that you will be able to handle a whole country. When she ran the last time she said she wouldn't be running again. Things may change but I doubt it.

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    Dick Cheney is Mr Republican, of course he would try to put a weaker democrate againt the republicans... No wonder his name is Dyck!!!

    Sandra you don't know crap about politics. The reason that the Left voted for Obama was because Hillary showed that she is a warmonger when she voted to give Bush permission to invade Iraq and Hillary is a proven hawk.

    What I don't understand about anyone who supports Hillary is how would her having been president rather than Obama been any different since most of the high ranking officials in Obama's administrations are retreads from Bill Clinton's White House.

    Democrats need real progressives not DLC repeats like Hillary or Obama.

    And plus we do not need to see them age Hillary by 29 yrs :dead:

    Exactly! :yes: I think the republicans are afraid of a second term with OBAMA because the 2nd term is when the president go hard with their agendas. I think when Obama is re-elected, that's when you gone see the real.The rich fat rats are very afraid. It's so funny how the fat cats complain about the deficit and then don't want to pay taxes but is so okay with the lower income to shell out thier money... OH our childrens children children is going to be paying this and that... but is not willing to contribute fairly like the rest of us...

    I watched a few mins of the GOP debate last night. Some good pts/ideas were made and so were some not so good pts/ideas but I already know who I am voting for :coffee:

    I don't think my vote counts but I always vote for the lesser of the two evils :yes:

    If Obama runs, he got this. If *I* were him I would throw up the middle finger and roll out.

  • MrUnapologetic

    Be clear - HILARY IS NOT RUNNING! She doesn't want it... Secondly, she lost back in 2008 because her arrogance and her assumption that she would win. On top of that she tried to dis Obama by telling him that he should come and work for him. We didn't like that... because it spokes volume. Will Obama be re-elected I don't know. I pray he does because I know - if no one else on this board doesn't - that to allow anyone of those REPUBLICANS to win will be COMPLETE HELL for anyone who is NOT rich. Think it's a game if you want... Mark my words!

  • lovezoe

    Michelle Bachman scares me more than Palin, but within the next few weeks she is going to realize she's outta her league.

    The black token GOP= no comment

    I hope Romney and Perry keep fighting, makes the choice much easier.

    This should be an interesting election season.

    And the rich folks have got LONG MONEY, they could wait it out a few yrs, us regular people do not have that luxury.

    Sounds like a true Republican. I'm starting to be able to conspiracy-theorize about SR these days.

    There is a documentary out called 'Inside Job.' In it you will find that the struggles Obama continually faces are a direct result of butting heads with the left over officials from the Bush administration that are still in positions able to control the US economy. These are conservatives that have been influential as far back to the Clinton era. Bottom line: as long as these people still work for the white house you will never see the progress that you want, but at least you know the reason behing Obama's struggles. That to me is confirmation that we elected the right person.

    Btw, I DON'T drink kool-aid and I don't judge anybody that does.

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    :rofl: In that picture Obama is looking like "If I reach around and pop this bish in the lip would I be wrong?"

    This country has been flucked up, since Adam, Eve, and the apple. President Obama, just like the Presidents before him inherited the band aid over broken leg this country was built on. With so many chiefs and not enough Indians this country will never be "right" or "left" just flucked up. Female president, Black President... you can't pour sugar or chit and get rock candy. History will continue to repeat itself...

    I'm interested to know how many times in the history of the United States has a president's party staged a mutany in the form of forcing a primary in their party after the president's first term. If it has never happened before, then it would speak volumes if it happened to the first black president. BUT that will not happen just because Cheney (and Sandra) is mad a black man is in office.

    Sup Yall! If folks really believe the repubs ain't gonna fvck em rotally then I don't know. Between what they've been doing up here in Wisconsin to crush workers' rights and voices and what they're doing in Michigan to welfare recipients shows they have no compassion for the people.

  • Yall still crazy

    Bird, nobody wants to talk about the racism, BUT I just know that everyone can see it (black&white).

    It will be interesting how they portray everything that's occuring in the documentaries that will come out within the next 10-20 yrs....

  • Yall still crazy

    Did yall here how we are stopping our support to people starving in Africa?

    It's like they just want them to die off completely. It disgusts me :cuss: I am nowhere near rich, but I have no problem working and paying taxes, in order to help the disadvantaged here and in other areas of the world. GOD don't like ugly... *staring them down*

    Obama will win in 2012 And Mark My word. Chris Christie New Jersey's Gov. is the best hope for the Republicans.. Keep your eyes and ears open..

  • I Run New York

    The media worships Obama. It would be extremely difficult for her to run against him. Now that the public sees Obama is not the messiah so many of his followers thought he was, the public might be open to someone else. I think if the economy continues to tank Obama will have a very hard time getting reelected.
