Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined Twitter Monday, with an account in her name popping up on the ubiquitous microblogging site.

Her first two followers: President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton. Hillary Clinton follows both accounts, as well as the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative. Her absence from the site, which has become a vital forum of political discussion and news, had been extensively noted.

In her Twitter biography, the potential 2016 presidential candidate describes herself as: “Wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD…”

Her profile picture is a TIME photo by Diana Walker of the then Secretary of State checking her BlackBerry aboard a military C-17, on her way to meet with Libyan rebel leaders in Tripoli. The photo was made famous by the Tumblr page Texts From Hillary.

Perhaps the GOP would be bad, but in no way could they be worse. There is a big difference between stupid and criminal. There is a big difference between calculating opportunistic, traitor and naive gullible patriot. Perhaps Paul or  Romney ( of course nit wits who call themselves conservatives will have 10 reasons not to support him) this is why our country is in the liberal unflushed toilet today.

She can't be worse. "What difference does it make?" Dear Lord. Deliver us from evil. That includes all liberals, Thanks

Budget cuts. Prostitution provides a fresh influx of cash to carry out the State Department's mission. Many find this revenue source hard to swallow, but it does show initiative.

Who needs Twitter?  All you have to do is stand inside a pentagram at midnight and sacrifice a chicken and you'll receive commands from Hillary directly.

I hope she puts that on a 2016 bumper sticker, but I'd be afraid people like you would black out from rage while driving and get into an auto-accident.

Could have been. You never know.  Whoever it was was no smarter than the one who dreamed up the insulting video that Obama, Hillary, and Rice crowed about for two weeks.

Obamacare was suppose to lower premiums for the average family of about 2500 a year. Turns out that is not true and premiums are rising.  Obamacare now is going to cost 3 times as much as Obama claimed it would.  He also claimed you could keep your doctor and we are finding out thats not the case for many Americans.  We are also finding out that 30 million Americans will not be covered by Obamacare. The list continues.....and the mean ol GOP was against Obamacare and wants it repealled.  Seems like the logical thing to do.

So you are saying the premium increase will only be 140%.  Thats good news, I was a little worried about that.

@curt3rd Actually Curt they aren't the article that these statistics came from used online teaser rates. You know kind of like the ones that tell you that you can buy a New Cadillac for $299 a month and nothing down.

Did you know in California some premiums are going to rise as high as 164%?

@curt3rd More like the GOP who have voted to repeal Obamacare 37 times and counting to date.

@curt3rd Actually based on his post above. I think he actually believes what the Al Queda guys is saying and doesn't realize that they have made plenty of claims in the past that have no bearing on reality.

You see, he thinks Al Queda creating Sandy is as stupid as a YouTube video being the cause of the Benghazi attack.  Dont be afraid to ask questions when you dont understand.

@mantisdragon91 @Moondog   No, I never said anything about Sandy.  That's all your diversion to change the subject. Typical Liberal tactic.

SURE DO BLAME BILLY BOB CLINTON FOR 9/11 !!!!!

He had bin Laden in his sights several times and backed off at the last minute.

GROW UP KIDS !!

@mantisdragon91 @curt3rd 

Actually, he did, manti.

Billy Bob Clinton, during his term as president, strongly supported going into Iraq.

Google it.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE COMMENTING.

And Billy Bob signed away the Banking Act of 1933 making all banks Gambling Houses with YOUR SAVINGS!!  His Community Banking Act forced banks to make home loans to people who had no way of ever repaying those loans.    Thus, he set America up for the GREAT RECESSION.

Sudan did try to hand Osama over to Clinton on a silver platter long before 9/11

@curt3rd Sure Curt. Because what Clinton left Bush is comparable to what Bush left Obama.

@curt3rd Sure it was Curt. Clinton told Bush to cut rich people's taxes,. and put two wars on the credit card.

@curt3rd I'm confused? You wanted her to spy on her husband 24/7? Would that have made he more fit for the presidency in your eyes?
