By 2016, she'll need Petraeus or better Curtis LeMay.

Castro is a light weight. a do nothing mayor in a "strong city manager" format mid tier city.

He's under investigation by multiple entities for campaign fraud and for miss-use of Fed dollars

David said...

Oh, that Castro.

Bet they have a line to the Cuba Castros too. Money to be made. Lot's of money when they finally open up their economy.

Watch out! They're going to suck your blood and bathe in it so they will look younger and more hispanic.

Nathan said...

Per cliche, doesn't this behavior mean that they're enemies instead of friends?

BDNYC said...

The Castro brothers are the definition of empty suits. Both are very bright and well-educated, but they speak and act like Obama. Long on hot air politicking, short on actual experience and substance.

San Antonio is run by a city manager, not the mayor. While the mayor has some formal duties on the city council, he's mostly just a guy who shakes hands and gives speeches.

A natural successor to Obama then?

Poll: how many here are squigged out by a gaggle of reporters waiting with baited breath to see if this natural friendship blooms?

What natural friendship could exist under these circumstances?

Patrick said...

Keep your friends close...

Let's hope Mayor Castro has learned a thing or two from former Mayor Cisneros, another real good friend of Hillary and Bill, before his private affairs become public.

avwh said...

^ I immediately thought of Cisneros, too.

Two opportunists looking to synergize their opportunism. What could be more natural?

lgv said...

Following in the footsteps of Cisneros. I liked Cisneros. I met with his people back in the day. They were very pro business and really trying to draw people to San Antonio. But then came his fall from grace. Just another in a long line.

Castro is Cisneros II, but he's a lightweight that happens to have a large following.

Good politics.

Everyone who thought this was going to mention Fidel and/or Raúl, raise your hand.

Read: All of those illegals-soon-to-be-legal will eventually vote for someone.

These things don't happen by accident.

John said...

Oh...Julian and Joaquin, not Fidel and Raul.

So a 42-year old VP with minimal experience that's a heartbeat from the Oval Office.

"This is a natural friendship waiting to bloom" - every stalker, everywhere.

SteveR said...

Mom's a bit on the extreme but that's fine, she's probably no more influential than Jeremiah Wright was to Obama. Reconquista is not just a topic in college classes.

Much like the current Governor of Wisconsin.

Castro stole money from HUD. So the Administration put him in charge of HUD with help from the usual GOP suspects.

Sounds like Prime Clinton Material to me...

AJ Lynch said...

The country will never again vote for such a lightweight i.e. community organizer type.

Voting for a community organizer for high office will be seen almost as crazy as an NFL team using a high draft pick on a white running back.

At first I was thought of Fidel and Raul.
The Clinton's are very cozy with the muslim brotherhood, why not fellow travelers?

Resume enhancer for a democrat.

gadfly said...

I don't know what it is about former mayors of San Antonio and HUD Secretary appointments but first we had Henry Cisneros in that job in the Clinton Administration until Janet El Reno succumbed to pressure and got him investigated by a Special Prosecutor. Henry pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, a misdemeanor, but his mistress, Linda Jones, got burned with a prison term for 28 counts of fraud, conspiracy and money laundering. Huh? I wonder how that works?

Now we have former San Antonio Mayor and Obama's HUDSEC Julian Castro sucking up to Hillary Rodham to secure a Veep nomination. Unfortunately, no one has told him that HUD Secretary is a dead end political move historically. I sure hope he doesn't know Linda Jones' daughter.

retired said...

The Hispanic Obama without the half white smart genes. We can't afford another affirmative action president, Castro nor HRC. And both are soulless duds to boot.

MathMom said...

One big problem with Castro, is that there are two of them. Twin progressive lightweights. That is a recipe for disaster.

Wasn't Walker's investigation found to be unconstitutional by a federal judge and stopped?

Do you support prosecutors violating the Constitution?
