From all reports, Bill Clinton gave a rousing, ringing endorsement of President Obama's reelection bid (sorry, I didn't watch it--my stomach is only so strong and the probability of Clinton giving one of his patented long, rambling, speeches was too high).
. . . Well, that's to be expected. Bill Clinton is a good soldier for the Democrat Party, so I would expect him to take one for the team (or in this case, to preserve his and Hilary's popularity within the party and bolster her chances of winning the Democrat nomination in 2016).
Unfortunately for Obama's campaign, Bill Clinton is ALREADY on record as to exactly what he thinks of Barack Obama . . . and it isn't precisely the same opinion that he expressed Wednesday night.
Very telling, isn't it?
"That is the central argument for his [Barack Obama] campaign:
Clearly Bill Clinton saw in Obama what everyone not dazzled by the spectacle of "First Black Candidate for President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama" and the doting mainstream media fog of praise and worship which surrounded him saw . . . AN EMPTY SUIT.It doesn't matter that I started running for President less than a year after I got to the Senate from the Illinois State Senate; I am a great speaker, a charismatic figure, and I am the only one who opposed this war from the beginning' . . ."
Or, as Bill Clinton so aptly put it:
". . . Give me a break! This whole thing is the biggest fairy-tale I've ever seen . . ."Bill, "I feel your pain." I still feel your pain.
Unfortunately your pain became all of America's pain and I'm disappointed in you that you are now actively aiding the authors of that tale in their efforts to write a second chapter. If you were genuinely a man of honor, you couldn't do what you did Wednesday night--but then I watched as you pointed your finger at the camera and lied to the American people, as baldfacedly and brazenly as any good sociopath might--without shame.
The problem with having an ego as large as Bill Clinton's (or Barack Obama's) is that in maintaining such a high profile in front of the press, the possibility of being exposed in a moment of candor is quite high--especially in this day of cell phone cameras and recordings.
The clip above shows what Bill actually thinks of Barack, but let's see what he thinks of Mitt Romney's qualifications for being President:
So according to Bill, Barack Obama was unqualified to be President--was "the biggest fairy-tale" he'd ever seen, but Mitt Romney "a man whose been governor with a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold."
Uh-oh, Barack, I guess that ringing endorsement Wednesday night lacked only one thing . . . the ring of truth.
President Obama still lacks any grounding in business and it shows in the policies he advocates and the regulations coming from his administration. Almost every action taken by this administration has had a negative effect on businesses. What little recovery we have seen is more a function of the underlying strength of our free-market economy than some manifestation of benefit from governmental policies.
The government can do little to "create jobs" or revive businesses other than establishing a business friendly environment and keeping out of the way by limiting it regulatory actions. The Obama Administration has done precisely the opposite . . . thus the struggling economy we now have.
The only time you can trust what Bill Clinton says to be completely honest, is when he is caught in these inadvertent candid moments. When he's scripted, as he was Wednesday night, everything he says is suspect . . . and if you notice, Wednesday night he rarely, if ever, looked directly in the camera--it's a hard thing to do when you're lying, as Bill knows full well.
Barack Obama is STILL less qualified than Mitt Romney to be President--even after four years in office--"leading from behind" is NOT a qualification.
Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
