Posted on 09/23/2012 7:08:49 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
It is pretty obvious that for Hillary to have any chance to become president in 2016, Obama MUST lose this election. We have already seen signs of Bill Clinton undermining Obama with his praise of Romney ("sterling" record at Bain Capital) and openly wondering why the Keystone Pipeline hasn't been approved.
Okay, my question is in what other ways will Team Clinton work to undermine Obama's election chances? Oh, and would it be proper to post a Clinton Appreciation Thread after the election?
Yeah but then why give such a “stellar” speech at the DNC. If this was the case he had his chance to mail it in at DNC and he didn’t
Not sure I agree with your reasoning here. An incumbent president has a huge advantage in any presidential election race (why do you think Obama is still in with a shout in this one?) - Hillary may prefer not to run against an incumbent in 2016... which she’ll have to if Romney wins, though not if Obama does.
I actually think the Clintons will be doing what they can to ensure Obama does win this race.
and yet, we'll still get people who just "can't" vote for Romney, who infact will be voting bammey in....
That's how I figure it too.
Hillary's last chance is 2016 and I think she'd rather try to replace Obama than challenge a republican incumbent.
If Romney is elected, and repeals Obamacare while enacting pro-growth, deficit reduction policies, Hillary certainly has no chance in 2016 as Romney will skate to re-election. All that money that is setting on the sidelines will boost the economy the minute Obama is thrown out. The Clinton’s have placed their bet that Hillary has a better chance on the tails of another disastrous Obama term than a successful Romney one (and they know Romney’s policies will be successful). IOW, they care more about their own political ambitions than the American people.
Dick Morris says that in spite of what the Clintons say, Bill is probably voting for Romney.
You don't get it. If Clinton had slammed Obama at the DNC, he would have RUINED Hillary's 2016 chances. The way Team Clinton will undermine Obama will by very subtle methods so they can't be blamed.
Think Dick Morris is wrong. Clinton seems to be going above and beyond for Obama. If it wasn’t for Cilnton’s DNC speech, I don’t think Obama would have a chance, and now Clinton is out campaigning for him. Clinton wants Obama to win.
Clinton could have declined appearing at the Rat Convention, and he didn’t.
Thank God this wasn't built. It would have been a total waste of money because fracking made oil sands too expensive.
The Clintons want Obama to win. They know that the American economy will show a relative improvement over the next 4 years in spite of Obama. The dopes in this country will be convinced it’s thanks to Democrat policies thereby improving their chances in 2016. It’s difficult to defeat an incumbent and that’s what Romney would be at that time.
With Clinton, you never really know, do you? I’ve heard it said that Clinton will lie even if the truth is a better story.
Obama and Hillary are a matched set. They will do what their leaders(not us)tell them to. Just remember they don’t think like the rest of us and neither in any sense of the word is a real leader. They are cowards and weak.
There was never any intent of Stevens being killed, the intent was for him to be held hostage and paint Obama as Carter II..
He was supposed to be held until the day Romney was sworn in, then released. The dems would then claim Romney and the repubs arranges for his capture to bring down Obama.
Even if Romney starts to undo Obamas policies on day one, the economy will more than likely crash anyway.
Better for the dems to have a repub in the WH when it crashes than a dems in their 2nd term.
By getting Romney into the WH they have both domestic and foreign policy covered as to blaming it on the repubs.
There is a price for everything. Just sayin.
On my local talk radio I caught a snippet about an "orgies" leak in which Klinton allegedly was involved. The talk show host did not amplify on this, however.
