Posted on 06/08/2012 10:24:30 PM PDT by Publius804
Former Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader told The Daily Caller that former President Bill Clinton is undermining [President Barack] Obama to lay the groundwork for Hillary Clintons presidential run in 2016.
Clinton recently told CNN that Republican candidate Mitt Romneys business record at Bain Capital is sterling. TheDC asked Nader if he agreed with Clintons statement.
Hes laying down the groundwork for Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016. Everything she is doing and everything he is doing argues that they want to run Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, so while he might appear with Obama in fundraisers in New York and elsewhere, hes basically undermining Obama, Nader told TheDC on Capitol Hill after advocating for raising the minimum wage to $10 per hour.
Nader added that Clinton does not necessarily want Obama to lose re-election but doesnt want the Clintons to be viewed as anti-business.
He wants to appear with Hillary as very friendly to business. He operates out of New York City. He doesnt want to alienate Wall Street, Nader said.

The only problem with that theory is that Hillary probably dislikes Bill as much as she dislikes Obama.
What the Xuck has Hillary! ever accomplished that qualifies her to be POTUS?
She’s a crook, covered up for her husband...run around the world on our money...seriously, what are her real accomplishments?
Oh wait..... accomplishments aren’t an issue for rats.....
Nader wants 0bama to lose to Romney in 2012 and Hitlery would then run against Romney in 2016.
I meant Nader thinks Clinton is undermining Obama so Hitlery can run against Romney in 2016.
I doubt it. She would be 70 yrs old in 2016.
There is no difference between Hillary, Obama and Bill.
Bill and Hillary were actually born in the U.S.
I doubt it, too. I think a lot of Dems are turning against 0bama because he’s such a disaster for the Rat Party and the country. They’re moving into Survival Mode.
Sean Hannity was saying the other day that he’s spoken to several people who know and speak to Clinton regularly.
He said they strongly believe the reason Clinton is so negative is that he truly thinks Obama is way too radical and is damaging the country. Hannity said they didn’t think Hillary was at the center of it (The Clintons may actually be getting older and tired, and if you look at Clinton, he really has aged).
OTOH, Clinton IS a master deceiver, if he wants to be.
Do Bill and Hillary even live together anymore?
We never see them together. I know Hillary travels a lot as Sec. of State, but, it seems that whenever we see either on the news, that the other one is never there.
If he wants Hilary to win, then he needs to come out in favor of her opponent. Nobody that he’s endorsed seems to win very often.
Do Bill and Hillary even live together anymore?
We never see them together.
No; they don’t live together. So, you know Bill is getting it somewhere.
I can think of at least a dozen strong conservatives in the Senate, House, Governors mansions, or Lieutenant Governor positions throughout the country who can easily make reputable runs for the White House tin the next two election cycles Right off the top of my head. Yet, the Democrats are hanging their hope on a one term Senator and failed Secretary of State who's a washed up old hag. That or The Dumbest man in Washington (Formerly the most stupid Senator of all time).
They have NO BENCH AT ALL!
All Bill has to do now to convince Nader is buy Obama a Corvair with wire wheels and knock-offs.
Nader knows all about undermining.
And that is was formulated in Nader's "mind".
Why politics when she has all that Red Chinese kickback money ?
Does this mean Ralphie might consider running? Maybe he could get Bill’s endorsement. “He’s had a sterling consumer advocate’s career!” Wow! Ralphie and Oblameyou on the same ballot. Moonbats would be apoplectic deciding which lever to pull.
He worked for Daniel Patrick Moynihan at the Department of Labor decades ago and according to Moynihan, Nader approached him one day and whispered that he thought the department's phones were tapped.
Moynihan responded that it didn't matter. Nothing they were doing at the department was secret anyway...
In terms of other Democrat choices, there is Biden. Biden is already 70ish, so he'll be 74 and the VP, which generally makes him the heir-apparent. Clinton would love to have Biden tossed overboard and herself be the VP this time around, but I doubt that will happen. So, she has to keep her SecState job or some other high visability position. Biden needs to make her look bad.
It would be better if Obama/Biden lost, so far as Hillary is concerned. Then Biden would have a failure on his record, he wouldn't be in a position to undermine her, and they would be on equal footing in 2016.
Hillary is best served by an Obama loss.
She also can look to Romney's term as governor of Massachusetts which he royally screwed up. There is also a real chance of another recession/depression to start off any 1st term of his presidency. IOW, it will be hard for him to look good, and especially if there is still divided government.
So, with Biden weakened and a potentially weak Romney, Hillary is definitely best served by an Obama loss.
What I find even more disconcerting is that she apppears to have an alcohol problem.
When was the last time you saw a sitting federal government staff or cabinet member holding an adult beverage? I've seen several pictures of Hillary holding a drink and in one of them she's throwing back a bottle of beer.
She also attends official meetings looking like she just crawled out of bed. I remember the picture of her with hair clips (the kind the hair stylist uses to hold back sections of hair while she works). And then there's the picture of her with a pony tail, glasses, and no make-up. These pics are evident of someone who's had a difficult time getting out of bed after a rough night.
How could this happen? As you see already in the news that Obama is imploding. The press is starting to desert him. His own party and base are not happy with him.
ALSO, June 18th a court hearing on Obama’s eligibility may be very intertesting. I know, “here we go again”, but one of these times it's going to work (meaning exposing this pos poser). This could be the one.
Also, mid June is when Sheriff Joe's cold case posse is going to drop the second shoe. Are these two things related? I don't know but it is curious/interesting.
Now do I want Obama out of the race and Hillary taking his place? HELL NO!!!! Obama can't win. Hillary would be MUCH HARDER to beat. So I hope Obama doesn't become unelectable too soon to be replaced on the ballot. Timing is everything.
While Obama won't quit on his own, he CAN be easily FORCED out.
Even Nader can see what is happening right in front of his nose. Of course, I think the timeline might be a little off — the Rat nominee for 2012 hasn’t been named yet.
I can’t believe how many don’t get the gravity of our nation’s situation and this election. If BHO destroys the country, there’ll either be NOone in the White House (at least not freely elected) or there’ll be Democrats in power permanently.
If all things were equal (if BHO were white) that might be true. But they have SO much invested in The Wan and between white guilt and fear of riots and racial reprisals, they’ll stubbornly stick with him, at least publicly.
That is, unless Bill/Hill see to it that something so blatantly bad about BHO is exposed that even the leftist media can’t sweep it under the rug.
