Oh…my…God! I just got done listening to President Clinton give the greatest endorsement of anyone to Barack Obama. He couldn’t croon enough about how great Obama will be for the Nation. The Clinton dynasty comes to a crashing halt with a whimper! First, Hillary stops the roll call half-way through and Obama is declared the winner. And now President Clinton has said what Hillary would not last night, “Barack Obama is ready to be President of the United States.”
After much fanfare and a shout out to his wife, Clinton spoke so highly of Obama I could hardly believe it. He said, “Everything I learned in my eight years as president, and in the work I have done since in America and across the globe has convinced me that Barack Obama is the man for the job.” Really?! What has he promised you, Bill? A cush Ambassadorship with hot, young interns around? As if that was not unbelievable enough, Clinton continued with, “He has shown a clear grasp of foreign policy and national security challenges and a firm commitment to rebuild our badly strained military.” What?! When? Obama has no grasp of foreign policy other than drinking tea with dictators. And it is really funny to hear a Clinton talk about the badly strained military. Were those the same guys who couldn’t wear their uniforms in the White House? And those national security challenges you were speaking about, Bill, weren’t you the guy who let Bin Laden go and weren’t you the real man responsible for allowing 9/11 to happen on your watch? Sure you were out of office, but when did those terrorists come, when did they train and when did you ever retaliate when they poked us so they would know not to punch us?
“The long, hard primary tested and strengthened him. And in his first presidential decision, the selection of a running mate, he hit it out of the park,” Clinton continued. Joe Biden is a hit out of the park? The fence must only be 100 yards away then. Come on, this was your chance Bill to give a dig that Hillary isn’t on the ticket.
And this line actually caused me to taste bile in the back of my throat, “Barack Obama is ready to honor the oath, to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” I think the President forgot that he meant to say “The Communist Manifesto” not the Constitution. Obamites can continue to drink the Kool-Aid, but one day they will no longer be able to ignore Obama’s Marxist leanings.
President Clinton continued, “As president, he will work for an America with more partners and fewer adversaries. He will rebuild our frayed alliances and revitalize the international institutions which helped to share the cost of the world’s problems and to leverage the power of our influence. He will put us back in the forefront of the world’s fight against global warming and the fight to reduce nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.” Why not throw in that the oceans will rise once more and the earth will heal under his hands? The speech continued on with more of the same.
So I find myself really believing in some shadow government. President Clinton had said earlier today that the Obama people had told him what he was going to say tonight. They took away his freedom of speech in other words. They took him in a back room and gave him an ultimatum. Only, I don’t believe that either Clinton is a lap dog. Bill is a loose cannon who usually doesn’t think before speaking. Why so different tonight? Why did they give up without a fight? Do they really believe Barack will lose and all this fanfare they caused will bode well for another run in four years? Is their mounting debt that extreme? The Clintons are the most calculating couple out there. Everybody expected something different. What do they know that we don’t? Is there an October surprise coming that they know about? I know some people will claim that they are getting all the attention right now which is what they want, but the Clintons have always worked for more than attention.
I just really can’t believe that this upstart with no power or experience has brought the Clintons to this – castration.
