Is Obama stealing the Clinto political machine?

Posted on 11/18/2008 6:02:57 PM PST by cradle of freedom

Doesn't it look like Obama is trying to steal all of Clinton's "soldiers"? It looks like he is going far beyond just reusing the old Cinton people for their experience. He is relying so much on the Clinton administration people that it really looks like he is doing it for political reasons. It looks like he is trying to eviscerate the Clinton machine. This way their loyalty will be to Obamana, not Hilary. This will also make it much more difficult for her to run against him in four years since most of the Clinton's old loyalists will be on the Obama side.

This looks like a political version of the Sopranos.

Well, who else on the Democratic side has any experience in the executive branch? It’s not as if he could call on the veterans of the Gore and Kerry Administrations.

Either that, or its the same man (men) behind the curtain that got Clinton into office who decided to shift gears with Obama. They are both puppets.

She won’t run in 4 years. He’ll get 8 years. The American electorate is still celebrating their having elected a black guy.

Where else is he going to find people? President Carter had many LBJ/JFK staffers in his administration, including his SecDef, Dr. Harold Brown, a McNamara protege.

Obama may have dangerous ideas but he is brilliant and well read. The Art of War and The Prince are his templates. His opponents better come to battle with strategic armor.

She Who Must Not Be Named has 900 FBI files in her posession, as well as an entire government infrastructure created during her co-presidency.

I believe the reason so many Clintonistas are being appointed by The One (piss be upon him) is that there has been a smoky-backroom-style deal made between the two most powerful political factions in existence: the Arkansas Mafia and the Chicago Machine.

A big indicator will be where William the Impeached ends up. An embassy, the UN, or the Supreme Court.

First Hillary Clinton is not going to run against Obama in 2012, not a single democrat will do so.

Second, Obama has zero experience on every level and that is why he is hiring the Clinton people for his administration.

Bingo.

The players ae interchangable. Too much time wasted hating Hillary, Bill and Obama. They merely serve the one who bankrolled their operations. Same faces behind the scenes points to the same man/woman.

The sickness is the left wing indoctrination we have allowed in schools, colleges and the media. Too many of “our side” are willing to go along to get along.

We need to de program these Obama zombies or we’ll be doomed to be governed by these intellectual and emotional infants.

And who controls our schools, colleges, and media?

Yes, we're doomed to be dominated by the mental midgets and emotional zombies who make up the majority of the electorate.

Maybe now we know what the meeting between Bill and Obama was in NY and why no October surprise. Do the Clintons have a copy of the birth certificate and Biden’s medical records?

The Clinton may have 900 FBI files, but they no longer have the media on their side, so how is the dirt going to get out?

I think the power has flipped to Obama - the whole world loves him.

He’s using clinton people because that’s all they got. The only other rats with executive branch experience would be from the Carter Admin.

Al-Qaida No. 2 insults Obama with racial epithet
Nov 19 12:20 PM US/Eastern
By MAAMOUN YOUSSEF and LEE KEATH
Associated Press Writers

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he does the bidding of whites.

The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
In al-Qaida’s first response to Obama’s victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect—along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice—”house negroes.”


Even al Qaeda says that Zer0 the 0re0’s appointments represent no change.

George $oreA$$ is controlling his house 0re0 very closely with these appointments/selections from Biden to $inator $hrill.

It was planned before he even got into the race.
