Bidzina Ivanishvili gets “stood up” by Hilary Clinton in Batumi Georgia

Hillary Clinton & Sam Patten – "three is company" with Bidzina Ivanishvili/Bush Cheney team 

This tape, Real TV, Tbilisi Georgia, is about Bidzina Ivanishvili did not meet with Hilary Clinton. The opposition say he did not meet because he is a leader and will meet with Clinton as a leader face to face or together with Saakashvili. Than the TV provides a story how Ivanishvili wanted to promote himself through the international high quality lobbyists and PR managers, spin doctors but even though could not become a world famous leader. 

TV says that Clinton strongly encouraged Ivanishvili to follow and obey the country legislation and adopted rules. I guess that means not to rock the boat with what the US has planned for Georgia and three is company. 

In the last few months various governmental TV stations have been making a limited number of stories about Ivanishvili's lobbing campaign, how it is not getting the bang for the buck. It is not even being paid too much attention to these days  a lot of other political events happening. Meanwhile, various cohorts are laughing all the way to the bank.

In this story, link above, is told that Ivanishvili is just loosing money when he hires this lobbing companies, AKA Sam Patten and Crew, Freedom House, Republican Institute and various cold warriors – as he is till getting no results.

Hillary Clinton ven refused to meet him during her June visit to Georgia, Batumi, a part of the world well know to her nutty family for the hazelnut business.  So now he must be seriously upset. 

Cry, cry -the Republicans are betting on the wrong house in Georgia!

I had a funny feeling at the time that this matter is time-critical. Now I am sure, putting together all the connections with Saakashvili, Sam Patten the hired gun spin doctor, the US State Department, that my dismissal was part of a game of bait and switch designed to fix the political future of Georgia – its transition to the next US choice of leader.

Sam Patten on Wikipedia cable releases

Now think to yourself, if you were Pentagon and Neo Con and Atlantic Council Intel, what would be the VERY BEST say to stuff a rag down the throats of snotty Yale staff members at US Embassies all around the globe, so they mind their Ps and Qs when writing their internal memos, at the upper end of Unclassified reports?
Read this cable below, and just think how CAREFUL every embassy robot will be in the future, writing cables to report to the State Dept. what is going on.

On April 30, 2008, US Ambassador Bass met with political consultants Jeremy Rosner and Sam Patten, of Greenberg Associates, the American political consulting company hired by the ruling National Movement party.  Rosner said the UNM [has close ties with republic party in the US, via Sam Patton].
Patten said their April 20 numbers show that the overall ballot position has been consistent for two months.  It would be interesting to know who carried out this research and the nexus to the US State Department and just how the poll was actually conducted. Rosner said after allocating undecided voters likely to vote, the polls indicate about 57 percent support for the United National Movement [UNC], which will likely equate to another constitutional majority in Parliament.  He added that their research shows jobs are people's foremost concern, and territorial integrity and social benefits alternate in second place. 

According to Rosner, “the UNC and other opposition have failed to articulate a message, which has resulted in sinking numbers.  The pollster said the UNM's biggest challenge is to ensure their expected victory is accepted as politically legitimate, both by the Georgian people and the international community.”  (Rosner accurately predicted the results of the January 5 presidential election.”
