Obama Versus Clinton

I don’t think any of us ever doubted that the Clinton’s did not love the Obama team. Going back into what was a very heated primary in 2008, there were some harsh things said, and worst of all – Hillary Clinton lost.

Well, Hillary flew the coop after the Benghazi debacle that still threatens to destroy her career (rightfully so), and now feels comfortable to let her minions zing the President from behind the cover of “anonymous” sources.

But was it a mistake? Or was it a politically calculated move intended to improve his wife’s standing while taking a swing at her nemesis President Obama.

It doesn’t matter why it happened, President Obama’s minions were quick to jump to his defense – minions like Krystal Ball and Ed Schultz.

For anyone paying attention on the outside who isn’t an Obama loyalist, this Clinton confession isn’t news – he’s right. But isn’t it the height of irony that President Bill Clinton is lecturing another President about being HONEST? It’s almost funny, no?

Harry Reid for one, is not getting involved, but he wants you to know that he is “very comfortable” with Obamacare. At least there’s that…
