Update: It’s Bill Clinton day everywhere. Charles Krauthammer is a guest of honor at the festivities. The top of the charts quote from Krauthammer: Let’s face it, Bill Clinton’s a double agent for the GOP, is playing on all the jukeboxes.
For those asking “What is ‘Obama supporter’ Bill Clinton up to?” you’re kinda late to the party. This war party has been going on for a long time, you’ve just been too blind to see. We’ve been on the job for years now with the answer (see below) to the question of the day for newbies.
Summarize. Bill Clinton’s candidates badly beat up Obama’s candidates last night in the primaries. Bill Clinton in the past week declared he “liked” Donald Trump (you know the guy who beats up on Obama and regularly calls Obama a Kenyan), trumpeted Mitt Romney’s “sterling” business record, demanded the election discourse be a Bain-free zone, and put down a marker for Obama to state specifically what he has done and what he will do if reelected.
Bill Clinton is no dope and Bill Clinton has been running campaigns since the George McGovern days. Bill Clinton knows more than anyone about campaign messaging and Bill Clinton knows that what he has done is take an ax to the Obama campaign message.
Obama wanted to smear Mitt Romney during five months left of the campaign with Bain distractions – soon ads quoting Bill Clinton will inoculate Romney. Obama wanted to distract attention from his record (and dubious history, as well as missing history) and pump up his dim witted supporters with jibber-jabber about Donald Trump and how unfair the world is to poor Bam-Bam – Bill Clinton swamped that with “I like him [The Donald].”
Obama wanted to run a campaign of distractions and whining (aided and abetted by Big Media), because he is afraid as a vampire is of a cross when it comes to his record in the White House. Bill Clinton said “no” discuss your record and what you intend to do in a second term. Bill Clinton knows Obama cannot survive this November if the election is a referendum on his record.
Bill Clinton, master campaign strategist has, with Barack Obama at his side grinning helplessly, systematically demolished Barack Obama’s campaign messaging and narrative. Ah, but wait! There is one narrative that Bill Clinton did not destroy. Well, not entirely…. true.
Bill Clinton did say, with grinning idiot Obama forced to listen at a fundraiser ostensibly held to help Obama, that Bill himself balanced the budget for four years. Bill Clinton repeated the fact and we can only imagine that Obama died inside knowing that Bill Clinton was openly taunting his trillion dollar budget deficits. Poor Bam-Bam.
Barack Obama might be an idiot but Obama knows when he is threatened. Barack Obama knows that Bill Clinton is goading and slapping him publicly without shame or restraint. But Obama is as helpless as George Zimmerman flat on the street while Trayvon Martin beat him. What can Bam-Bam do? Fire Bill? Fire Hillary? As if.
Barack Obama knows that Bill Clinton knows that Barack Obama knows that Bill Clinton knows that Barack Obama needs Bill Clinton to try to reach all those white working class “folks” that Obama snubbed and mocked for years now. Barack Obama knows that Bill Clinton knows that Barack Obama knows that Bill Clinton knows that Barack Obama needs Bill Clinton to try to raise money now that the Hopium Guzzlers are penniless in this Obama economy and Hillary supporters refuse to donate money to a boob.
Barack Obama can’t do a damn thing about Bill Clinton. Obama has to grin and bear it.
We did say that there was one Obama narrative that Bill Clinton did not destroy, aside from that verbal assault on deficit budgets. Well, that was before yesterday.
Yesterday Bill Clinton knocked out the last remaining leg of the Obama message/narrative.
Barack Obama having made a wreck of the American economy knows the best he can do is say “the economic trends are going in the right direction”. Last month’s economic data prove Barack Obama is at best wrong, probably lying. But economic data are not charismatic and don’t give interviews. But Bill Clinton….
Bill Clinton flatly contradicted Barack Obama on the nonsense that the nation is on the “right track” economically. Bill Clinton made it clear yesterday, of all days, that the United States is headed in the “wrong” direction. Bill Clinton flatly and authoritatively shouted out: WE’RE IN A RECESSION!:
“Former President Bill Clinton told CNBC Tuesday that the US economy already is in a recession and urged Congress to extend all the tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year. [snip]
“What I think we need to do is find some way to avoid the fiscal cliff, to avoid doing anything that would contract the economy now, and then deal with what’s necessary in the long term debt-reduction plans as soon as they can, which presumably would be after the election,” Clinton said.
“They will probably have to put everything off until early next year,” he added. “That’s probably the best thing to do right now. But the Republicans don’t want to do that unless he agrees to extend the tax cuts permanently, including for upper income people, and I don’t think the president should do that.”
A RECESSION???? How can that be???? Bush is out of office and the great source of light and intelligence is gracing us with his mastery of the world shining like a beacon of hope since he was ten years old in Indonesia.
A RECESSION???? How can that be???? Barack Obama keeps telling us that we’re on the “right” track and things are trending in the right direction. Bill!!!!!! You mean Obama is not telling us what we need to hear???? Bill, you are the guy that balanced four budgets (you reminded us all a few days ago of that fact) and surely you know what you are talking about. Are you saying that Obama is an AMATEUR, a boob, out of his element, in over his grey head??????
Yeah, we know, the response to the above is that Bill was saying only “temporarily” extend the Bush tax cuts. But that is not the big news. The big news from this interview is Bill Clinton authoritatively and flatly stating that the American economy is in recession and that is completely contrary to the Obama campaign message/narrative. Wait till the ad comes out from the Romney campaign.
Granted we have been writing for years that Bill Clinton (and Hillary Clinton, who must be laughing her sass off) cannot tolerate Barack Obama, hates what he is doing to the country, despises how Barack has destroyed the Democratic Party and has been waging a defensive/offensive war versus Obama in private. But now the war has gone public and even the dolts are beginning to catch up to what are readers have known for years. We certainly are no longer alone. Charles Krauthammer, certainly NOT a dolt had this to say:
“I think he’s really is now a bull in a china shop, there is a lot of crockery being destroyed. It’s very clear when he said the thing about the sterling business record, that was extremely undermining because, of course, it contradicted the whole roll-out strategy of the Obama campaign, which was to portray Romney as vulture capitalist. So it undoes that.”
“But I think it has broader implications. I think what was overlooked was the fact that Romney met the threshold for the presidency. That is extremely important in a re-election campaign. A re-election campaign is a referendum on the president, unless they are questions about the challenger,” Krauthammer said.
“A loose cannon? He’s a double agent,” Krauthammer said. “What’s the message? Bill Clinton said elect Obama because at the end of his second term you might begin to be getting out of recession, I wouldn’t run on that.“
Bill Clinton went public war against Obama just as the bad economic numbers burped out last week. Yesterday as Obama destroyed the Wisconsin Dimocratic Party and Wisconsin Big Labor, Bill Clinton struck again. Hit ’em when they’re down. Keep your enemies close – until it is time to strike them down. Bill knows all the tricks and Barack is only now realizing he is outmatched in his Chicago thuggery by corn-pone Ozark L’il Abner style backwoods fighting.
Barack Obama and his Hopium Guzzlers will indulge themselves in fantasies and treacheries. The #1 fantasy today is that the Wisconsin exit polls foretell an Obama victory in November. But the exit polls had the Wisconsin recall race as 50/50, too close to call. The exit polls proved to be wrong as Walker easily walked over the finish line. The Wisconsin exit polls are equally wrong in the Romney vs. Obama race. The only argument left is to say, something, anything, “hey, it really didn’t matter, we lied to you to “pump you up”, to fool you”. But we remember. Do you recall?:
Governor Scott Walker shared some advice that Obama will never understand.
Walker: If you make the tough choices, voters will stick with you. Some voters did not agree with Walker but still voted for him. Some voters were upset with the ceaseless recall attempts and they voted for Walker. Most importantly some voters likely stuck with Walker because indeed he made tough choices.
Barack Obama will not make the tough choices. Barack Obama just wants to spend more and more money as the printing presses churn out green inflationary paper.
“As Charles Krauthammer said last night on Fox News, “In Wisconsin, Obama literally mailed it in.” Actually, Obama tweeted it in. Though public sector unions throughout the country broke their backs and piggy banks to win him the presidency in 2008, ever the calculating politician willing to throw his supporters under that over-crowded bus, Obama refused to show up and rally for the Wisconsin rank-and-file for fear a loss might give him a bad news cycle or two.”
If Big Labor has any pride or fight Big Labor would tell Obama, “Not one cent more. Not one cent from our workers for your Bank of America stadium coronation. Not one cent from our workers for your treacheries. You are the one and on your own. Go to Hell.” But battered wife Big Labor will fork over the cash and light incense in worship at Bank of America stadium. And they wonder why they are losing. And dying.
