Update: If June 1 turns out to presage June 57, er June 30, Obama should just resign right now.
Consider, Obama now below 50% against Romney — in California. Is this the well deserved collapse???? Is Paris Burning?
Consider, Bill Clinton did not just stick the knife into Obama’s campaign on CNN. Bill Clinton is also going against Obama’s choice in a New Jersey congressional race. Can you guess why Bill is endorsing lately?
Consider, this from the highly regarded, in Big Media circles, Ron Bonjean of U.S. News:
“Bill Clinton Undercuts Barack Obama in Wisconsin
Is former President Bill Clinton going rogue against President Obama’s presidential re-election aspirations? It looks that way if you look at mounting evidence that Clinton may be paying back the Obama campaign for the vicious 2008 primary against his wife, now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. [snip]
Sensing a major loss coming, the last thing the White House wants to do is send in the president for fundraisers and pep rallies held in vain. Seeing this opening, Bill Clinton understands that by showing loyalty and risking political capital, he will be viewed honorably by the party faithful in a battleground state. It also sends a clear message to Democrats across the country: “President Obama is only looking out for himself and has no chits to spare. The rest of you are on your own.” When Scott Walker wins, watch how Wisconsin Democrats trash the White House for leaving them out in the cold. This doesn’t help Obama in a state that hasn’t gone Republican since Ronald Reagan, but has a real chance to to do so this November. [snip]
It is simply amazing to witness a former president of the same party sweep the legs out from underneath the Obama campaign’s entire campaign strategy to make Romney look like a greedy capitalist who only cares about enriching a few at the cost of a middle class work force. In a few seconds, this strategy has been flushed down the toilet now that Bill Clinton has given the Romney campaign all the ammunition it needs to shoot down these attacks. It’s hard to see how the Obama team will recover from this blow and if they can do anything to get Clinton to change his tune.
Bill Clinton doesn’t forget his enemies, but he definitely isn’t forgetting his friends who endorsed Hillary either. [snip] Clinton has also thrown his weight behind Rep. Brad Sherman, an early supporter of Hillary’s, in his race against fellow California Democratic Rep. Howard Berman.
Whether or not Hillary is tacitly backing all of this is another question. We’ve all heard the line that “revenge is a dish best served cold,” but Clinton is making this playbook look like a spicy, hot tamale with lots of jalapeno peppers for dessert. He has one of the most brilliant politically devious minds in modern history and it’s impressive to witness the payback. Maybe it’s time for another beer summit.”
We’ve been writing about the war by Barack Obama on Hillary and Bill Clinton and the Clinton counter-punches for years. Finally, Big Media takes notice.
May was a month of horrors for the Obama reelection circus. June promises to be even worse. You can say “June has a cleaver and it’s sharpened for Obama’s veiny neck.”
June bookends include the Wisconsin election in the first week and the Supreme Court decision on the Obama health scam at the end of the month. Both those events bode ill for the Hopium Guzzler brigades. Sandwiched in between those monumental events is the publication of the Marco Rubio autobiography (book tour through swing states included) as well as the Arizona immigration law ruling from the Supreme Court. But it’s much, much worse for Team Booberama.
June 1 opened this fine morning with a horrid jobs report: Only 69,000 jobs added, jobless rate rises to 8.2%. Unemployment is much worse than those numbers reflect but the bottom line for the Obama argument of “Forward” is “We’re going in the wrong direction.” It’s like the line from Raiders of the Lost Ark: “They’re digging in the wrong place!”
Obama is digging a bigger hole, Obama is making it worse. It’s the worse jobs report in a year.
As bad as the jobs report and the unemployment rate rise is new news from the first black president. Yes, we’re talking Bill Clinton.
Bill Clinton is in Wisconsin today showing the flag in the apocalyptic Wisconsin recall election race. Bill is just showing the flag. Bill knows Wisconsin is lost to Obama and the unions and that Scott Walker will win the recall election. But Bill Clinton is by his very appearance showing all (especially the Hopium Guzzlers that believed Barack Obama when he said words during the 2008 campaign about defending unions) that Obama cannot be trusted.
But the first black president has more punches to bloody Obama with. The first black president, the one that helped black Americans get jobs and grow into the middle class, joined other black Americans such as Cory Booker and Deval Patrick in mocking Barack Obama. Bill Clinton declared attacking Romney’s “sterling business career” a non-starter. “The shelf life of President Obama’s Bain Capital strategy appears to be rapidly shrinking.”
“So I don’t think that we ought to get in the position where we say this is bad work, this is good work. I think, however, the real issue ought to be what has Governor Romney advocated in the campaign that he will do as president? What has President Obama done and what does he propose to do? How do these things stack up against each other, that’s the most relevant thing. There’s no question that in terms of getting up and going to the office, and you know, basically performing the essential functions of the office, a man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold.“
“What has President Obama done and what does he propose to do?” Bill knows the answer to that question.
Mitt Romney has a “sterling business career” says Bill. What about that evil anti Barack Obama Birther Donald Trump? What about The Donald Bill?:
“WEINSTEIN: “You know, speaking of un-cool, Donald Trump has a benefit for Mitt Romney. And I know Donald Trump to be a sane, smart businessman. But he has this benefit, Romney comes, and he talks about that birth certificate again. How do you put that out of the minds of the American public –”
CLINTON: “I don’t know.”
WEINSTEIN: “– once and for all? And doesn’t he realize how un-cool he is?”
CLINTON: “I don’t know, you know, Donald Trump has been uncommonly nice to Hillary and me. We’re all New Yorkers.”
“And I like him” says Bill! We can hear Michelle Obama tearing sleeves.
The Sista Toldja:
“Not only that, but do you ever get the impression that Bill Clinton is only going through the motions in supporting Obama? Everytime I hear Clinton speak about Obama, it is always tinged with exactly the type of tone used in his interview on Piers Morgan – a tone that suggests Clinton is not enthused about the prospect of having to stump for O, almost like it’s an obligatory thing he’s done for payback for Obama picking Hillary Clinton to be SOS. You really can’t blame Bill Clinton for being a tepid supporter of Obama’s, considering the way the Clintons were treated by him during the 2008 presidential primaries, but at the same time Clinton is the consummate politico, able to hide his true feelings on any given issue or person in the blink of an eye. But he just can’t seem to get that down pat when it comes to President Obama.”
It’s not payback for SOS, it’s just payback – the street kind Sista. And June has just begun.
