What Year Is It? ‘Stop Hillary PAC’ Invokes Whitewater, Vince Foster In New Attack Ad

The 2016 presidential election may be more than three years away, but some Republicans have already organized an effort to block the top contender from ever reaching the White House.

Stop Hillary PAC, a political action committee led by right-wing Colorado state senator Ted Harvey — best known for his efforts to allow concealed weapons in schools — warns on its website that “Hillary Clinton is the liberal standard-bearer of the next generation of liberal creep on our Constitutional rights.” Its solution? To “stop Hillary Clinton now, together, before it’s too late. Because in 2016, it will be too late.”

To that end, the PAC has released its first ad — and even by the depressingly low standards of those afflicted with Clinton Derangement Syndrome, it’s pretty far out there.

The ad, apparently set at Hillary Clinton’s post-apocalyptic inauguration, reintroduces a laundry list of debunked Clinton conspiracies in an effort to scare voters away from the former Secretary of State. From Vince Foster’s suicide to Whitewater to Benghazi, the Stop Hillary PAC has created a handy cheat sheet to every baseless attack that ever failed to prevent the Clintons from enjoying more popular support than arguably any other politicians in America.

Stop Hillary PAC is just one of several outside groups that has already mobilized in an attempt to derail a potential Clinton campaign before it begins (another, “Stop Hillary 2016,” is led by Mitt Romney’s former campaign manager, Matt Rhoades.) But if a stale, absurd accusation that Clinton assassinated Vince Foster is the best that the right can come up with — here in 2013 — then Clinton’s march to the White House would actually be easier than anyone could have anticipated.

    Lordy, she really does terrify them!

  • JanNH

    Who knew they were THIS scared of her? Wow.

    The GOP has completely lost touch. I have college students who consider Ronald Reagan to be as relevant as Dwight Eisenhower. They also think Bill Clinton is the coolest former President on the planet.

    So, who is this ad directed at anyway?
    The same Old White Farts who hate The Black Guy and thought “You didn’t build that” was a winning political strategy in 2012??

      America won’t survive having 2 communists in a row running it

      • tobyspeeks

        Ding-a-ling, come on now, which is it, communist or nazi?

        • PissedoffinAZ

          Don’t forget Socialist, Black Panther, and Muslim Brotherhood!

      • PissedoffinAZ

        Yeah, communist, because all the President’s opponents are languishing in the Gulag, and armed troops are patrolling the streets.
        REALITY CHECK REQUIRED!

    The GOP, and its radical wing, the Tea Party, know that if either Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren run for President in 2016 they will be elected by a landslide.

    Resurrecting Whitewater is meant to be a warning shot. The heavy artillery will be focused on the alleged “Benghazi scandal”. Unfortunately for them, Hillary is not Obama, and she is likely to come out swinging in a way our calm and focused President never does. The Tea Party is not the only problem the GOP has to contend with, their biggest problem is two ladies with a record they cannot challenge with credible and verifiable evidence.

      Tell us again about those wonderful accomplishments of Hillary Clinton. I’m a New Yorker. Enlighten me as to what she did for my state as its senator. That’s a rhetorical question. That carpetbagger did nothing for New York, just as Robert kennedy did nothing for New York.

      Tell us about her great accomplishments as Secretary of State.

      Know what I think, Dominick? I think that Hillary Clinton is a crook and a phony. Women seem to want her because she’s a woman. I also think that if Hillary is the best choice for president, then we’re in trouble. Fortunately, she’s not the best choice and I hope that if she is nominated, that she loses in a landslide.

      Do I despise her? You bet that I do, but not as much as I despise Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, the Tea party assholes, Cheney, Rove, Koch and Slick Willie. Remember Slick Willie? A total asshole who made a mockery of the presidency, mainly because he couldn’t control his lust. What a pig! How Hillary could stay married to that piece of garbage is beyond me.

      Actually, maybe the actions of Hillary’s former number one gal Huma Weiner says something about both Huma and Hillary. They both continued to support their sexually psychotic husbands after the public got thoroughly disgusted by their actions.

      Maybe instead of Elizabeth Warren as Hillary’s proposed running mate, you should consider Huma as your choice for the vice presidency. They seem to be soul mates.

    Awwww….That Young Republicans Triage is already chomping at the bit to start up another round of distractions only they consider valid…Rove is behind this in some way. Aided and abetted no doubt by the other members of the former college preppie Young Republicans Club…Ralph Reed from saint to sinner and Eric Prince of Blackwater fame.

    They are having a devil of a time trying to keep women under control and are failing miserably at it.

  • latebloomingrandma

    At least we know that Hillary is battle hardened and afraid of no one. I guess it all comes down if she wants to re-enter the cesspool again, or just enjoy her post-Sec. of State status and wait to be a grandma. I think the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuits are wanting her to run. She is the woman who deserves the first title of Madam president.

    • PissedoffinAZ

      Too bad the “Obama-Swoon” media got their panties all wet in 2008. I think even Chris Matthews realizes now that he backed the wrong horse in that race.

      If Hilary had been elected then, we would be miles ahead of where we are now, as she would never have wasted a full term (or even a full week!) trying to play footsie with people that were constantly kicking her under the table.

      • latebloomingrandma

        Actually, I think it would still be pretty ugly. Her stint as Sec of State took her out of politics into the statesmen realm, and enhanced her status greatly.
        If she were Pres. in 2008, she would be the recipient of all the slings and arrows. She’s just that much smarter now,and goes into it wit a much better reputation.

        • PissedoffinAZ

          Oh, I agree entirely, I just think she is one tough cookie, and she wouldn’t have wasted more than a week trying to play nice with the GOP. Obama may be Mr. Cool, Calm and Collected, but he seemed to believe in his own likeability and talent at negotiations well beyond the point where everyone else could see it wasn’t happening. Way beyond.

          No doubt, though, her reputation is enhanced, and all the BS about Benghazi can be easily countered with the far worse situations that have happened under GOP administrations, including more attacks by number and more deaths.

  • jointerjohn

    Darn fools are shooting way too early. Even political novices know the American attention span is about forty-five days, and here they are wasting bullets more than three years out?

  • Allan Richardson

    Clinton-Warren 2016!

    • PissedoffinAZ

      OMG, now I’m wetting my panties!

  • ralphkr

    Who on earth produced this commercial? A sixth grade media class? They could not even get the music to play properly. By the way, I might have missed but I don’t remember seeing the charge that Clinton overwhelmed the commodities market.

    • PissedoffinAZ

      It was pretty funny. I can see everyone under 35 googling every single reference except Benghazi. What was that music? Sounded like a really garbled version of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
