Bill blockbuster: Oís an Ďamateurí
New York Post ^ | 5/11/2012 | CARL CAMPANILE

Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims,

“The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama.

The title of Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president, the author said.

“Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an amateur.”

The withering criticism is incredible, given the fact that Bill Clinton is actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election.

But according to the book, Bill Clinton unloaded on Obama and pressed Hillary to run against her boss during a gathering in the ex-president’s home office in Chappaqua last August that included longtime friends, Klein said.

“The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said.

Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama and had been consulted more frequently by his presidential successor, George W. Bush.

Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”

But Hillary resisted the entreaties, according to two of the guests interviewed for the book.

“Why risk everything now?” a skeptical Hillary told her husband, emphasizing that she wanted to leave a legacy as secretary of state.

“Because,” Bill replied, his voice rising, “the country needs you!”

“The country needs us!” added Bill.

Billy Goat should know an amateur when he sees one. He's been the wheeler-dealer ever since he left his %$15,000 a year job of governor of Arkancide with his wifey-thingy tied on the roof of their Nash Rambler.

He is a rube, just like that piece of Chicago muck hauled out of the sewers of Chicago by his handlers then fast-tracked to the White Hut to ruin the nation.

HE MAN WHO DESPISES AMERICA

Barack Hussein Obama is not stupid or an amateur when it comes to detsroying America. He is going about doing what he does methodically and with a will. IMHO, he has done more to harm this nation and bring it to the brink of ruin than the combined efforts of all of our external enemies in our entire history.

Apparently Clinton doesn't even recognize the purpose and goals behind him. He does not want to fix the ecomomy...he means to destroy it and then remake it all into a command ecomonmy with himself and his cronies sitting on top of it.


AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY

Ironic. Those old enough will remember the first two years of the Clinton administration as a laughing stock of clown-car amateurism. Even the lefty press was ridiculing them.

Then he was saved by a Republican Congress that gave him something to focus on. The left is always better at criticizing and rockthrowing than at actual governing.

I think this is a ruse, designed to sense popular support for Hillary making a run. EVERYTHING Bill Clinton does is driven by a poll of some kind, either overtly or otherwise. He knows better than to trash Obama in public without having a good reason.

The “Hick” from Arkansas is a consumate politician while he has the moral leanings of a snake he’s right about this one..Hillazy blew this one
This was the reason when claiming heroics on kill OBL he brought up Clinton’s indecision on doing so...But nobody caught it ...if they did they didn’t report it...Obama destroyed the Democrat party

As much as I despise Willie, he is the greatest “politican” of the past 50 years. In his eyes everyone is probably a amateur.

Obama may qualify as an “amateur” by Bill Clinton's standards, but he's assembled a mighty collection of Donkey/RINO socialists and Marxists to destroy the United States of America. If Bill Clinton hasn't figured this out yet, then he's truly a dupe. More likely, though, is that he's jealous that Barry's succeeding where he and Hillary! failed during their co-presidency. That's got to be depressing to Bill — a man totally consumed by his “legacy”.

Can you imagine if we have another 2 weeks of Zero down in the polls 8 to 10%, Bill could try to convince Hilllary to run again? If she went after the nomination now, what a ruckus at the NC convention that would be!

By the way, I believe the book. Implied it’s saying Bill wants Hillary as president, so he can be co-president again. Makes perfect sense to me. The part about being upset about the loss of AAA rating rings true. May be the only thing Bill Clinton and I agree on.

“Why risk everything now?”

This is nothing but playacting by the grifters.

Hillary has now noticed that Bill is absolutely fabulous when it comes to winning elections, so they've decided to become known as the Dynamic Duo.

They gather a bevvy of lovely young interns into a room and while Hilly holds one down Bill rapes her. Then Bill holds down one and Hill rapes her. After the mess from all the sex is cleaned up with Hill's tongue another set can begin.

An off broadway entrepreneur sees great gate from this show and promptly names the act ‘The Aristocrats , but only if a goat is added to the act.

Billy, knowing all about goats is rearing to go and is anxious to begin making money as that has become his god.

Meanwhile, the Washington Pest has discovered that Mitt Romney was in a prep school group 48 years ago that gave a youngster a haircut. They don't have time to report on Bill and Hill's shenanigans as they've heard that Romney is a Republican, so this exhibition with the Clintons is just going to have to take back seat for now.
