Skip to comments.HURT: Six things Clinton said at the DNC that undermined Obama

....5) Perhaps the most shocking barb of the night came as Mr. Clinton was lauding Republicans and their convention.
They looked good, they sounded good, he said. They convinced me that they all love their families and their children and were grateful theyd been born in America.
Really? Giving a speech nominating Mr. Obama to a second term and Mr. Clinton raises the birther card? At the very least, the line highlights persistent questions about Mr. Obamas patriotism and whether the first lady really is proud of her country yet.

What might Bill know about these two that we don't?
Ouch. I didn't watch so that's the first I've heard Bubba said that. I guarantee Obama picked up on it. Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall and seen Barky's expression when he heard those words.
If Hillary is to win the WH in 2016, will she have a better chance if Obama wins, or is defeated this year?
The answer is obvious. Another four more years of Obama, and the Dems won't be able to elect a dog catcher for the next 50 years.
Clinton is doing a superficial job of supporting Obama..just enough to maintain the fiction that his hands are clean. I predict that he won't be campaigning that much for Obama...some excuse will be trotted out..maybe a slight medical condition..he needs to rest..
There were all sorts of reports during the 08 campaign that Clinton had the goods on the birther issue, and only held it back when they got a deal for Hillary. (They thought being Sec of State would bolster Hillary for future campaigns, but they didn’t foresee how her performance in that position would be such a glaring, miserable failure. About all she can do now is claim “I was just following BHO’s bad foreign policy orders” -— which is almost certainly true, but of little avail politically.)
Clinton could still leak out some very interesting information, evidence. Trust it.
Didn’t watch. Interesting.
And yes, Bill . . . Reagan did it in three years. Take that.
I’m sure the first lady is proud of Kenya.
True; a pundit mentioned that last week as well.
Eliminating the words, “god given” from the Democrat platform, told us that the Democrats do not believe in God-given anything, including God-given rights of man. Without God-given rights of man, all rights emanate from the State to be granted or taken away at will.
I believe that it is this Statist belief that led John Roberts to declare Obamacare constitutional and the court to rule against requiring voter ID in Texas.
That will become mandatory in Los Estados Combinados de Aztlán.
Obvious he hates that boy's ass!
Bill knows where all of Hillary’s bodies are buried and Hillary knows where all of Bill’s bodies are buried and now both of them know where all of Obama’s bodies are buried.
Another 4 years of the kenyan and there will not be a country to elect a dogcatcher in.
I heard parts of Clinton’s speech while I was on the road. (Surfing the talk stations. Unfortunately, most of them had him on.) All I got was basically “Republicans and Democrats are the same”...as a Conservative, I can’t really argue against that point too much... But, I also noticed he skillfully both lauded and put down the Republicans while lauding his own ability to work with them...And in the end somehow weaved in support for the 0. He is definitely one slick willy.
Look we can micro-analyze all we want but let’s face it.
Clinton has an agenda and it is to move the country to the left. Yes, he’d prefer it if he was the one that delivered on healthcare instead of Obama but any win is still a win for the team.
Despite the PUMA distraction, most Hillary supporters voted for Obama and are now jumping up and down about gays and abortion.
I think Hillary has a better chance in 2016 if the Bamster gets reelected. Even if the economy get’s worse during those 4 years, which is likely, the Bamster will still, by executive order, create enough new voters that receive free money and benefits from the federal government, (illegals, cancelled welfare reform, expanded food stamps, etc.) that those on the receiving end will simply outnumber the producers. A vote for Hillary will simply be a vote to keep their payments coming, Greek style.
“But Good Bubba never comes to dinner without Bad Bubba.”
Bubba looked weak and tired to me.
Wishful thinking Washington Times- NOTHING EVER HURTS whiny o because the mainstream media will NEVER LET ANYTHING HURT him politically- He could take a crap onstage, throw it at people i nthe audience, and hte mainstream media would spin it to look like he was doign the peopel a favor! Hell, he can even come out and accuse Romeny of ‘hating women, hating old people, hating sick people, hating teachers, hatign nurses, hating doctors, hating pharmiceuticals, hating gays, hating children, and of beign a felon and murderer, and the press dopes ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about it!
oh yeah, i forgot, and whiny o and the left can accuse romeny of using ‘secret racist code to incite racists within the GOP’ and the media will do NOTHING ABOUT IT- but mind you, if a republican made such assinine accusations, the media would drive that person out of a career and htety wouldn’t stop until they had ruined that person finacially and politicly!!!
Bill Clinton has managed to position himself in a win-win situation. If Obama manages to get re-elected, Clinton will take full credit for “saving” him and use his regained power in the party to get Hillary the nomination in 2016. However, if Obama loses, Clinton still comes out smelling like a rose because he “tried his hardest” to save Obama, but even he could salvage that turd and perhaps nominating Obama at all had been a mistake that the party can rectify by putting Hillary on the ballot in 2016.
He's also slicker than eel snot. :-)
[[Heck, we’re a few executive orders away from allowing Obama to put anybody, including himself, in office. After all, the Supreme Court isn’t there to protect us from our poor decisions]]
yopu got that right- This arrogant narcisist would tel lthe people ‘we aren’t havign an electio nthis yerar because of the extraordinary circumstances that require a sitting president to serve more years than normal, and if you think it’s unfair, well then bring it to the swupreme court (who as we’ve learned, like you said, aren’t there to ‘protect us against our own poor choices’)
I alsmot puked when his wife stood onstage and tried to bull shit America by telling htem honesty and intergrity were what her husband were all about-
The left has absolutely ZERO shame- they are shameless
Yes, the passport records for Obama, along with Hillary and McCain, were all accessed by employees at a firm that had a contract with the State Dept. The speculation is that Hillary and McCain’s files were just accessed as cover, to lessen the appearance that the breach targeted Obama. The firm that employed the people responsible just happened to be owned by John Brennan, the CIA officer who gave Bill Clinton his daily intelligence briefings while he was President.
Afterwards, Hillary got the Secretary of State job, and Brennan also got a position, as the Chief Counterterrorism Advisor to Obama.
Of course I meant to say "goose crêpe."
I think we are transitioning rapidly to the Cesar Chavez model of governance. I am not terribly optimistic about the opposition’s real chances in the coming election, much less in any later one. The Left has a near stranglehold on the operational nuts and bolts of voting and counting.
“Another four more years of Obama, and the Dems won’t be able to elect a dog catcher for the next 50 years.”
That theory, running both ways, gets tossed around every time one party or another has or expects a big electoral win. Then the ADD voters bring ‘em right back. Only 4 years ago the word was that the GOP was lost in the wilderness for a generation or two.
That’s certainly a possibility. My take is that the Clinton’s want Obama to not just lose, but lose in a landslide. The thinking is that it will reduce Obama to an insignificant figure while simultaneously both ejecting Obama loyalists (Jarret, Axelrod) and chastising the DNC and their constitutients severely. The Democrats would have no recourse but to come grovelling back to the Clintons. In 2016, no one is likely to challenge Hillary and Obama will be a dismal memory.
Assuming Romney stumbled, and the Media will help with that, I see the Clinton’s taking advantage of the historical likelihood that Republican mid-term losses mean they can try to get back some or all of Congress.
The problem with the basic premise about Hillary Clinton’s prospects in 2016 is that she was an old-looking hag even when running in 2008. If she couldn’t beat a jug-eared nitwit like Obama in 2008, she’s not likely to do well in 2016 when she she’ll come across as a tired, worn-out political hack.
Quite a rant! They are busted, at least by you!
by me and many many many others bellflower- people like hannity, coulter,orielly,napolitano,judge jenine, etc etc etc etc all who have noted the same thigns I have and have spoken out about them too- but thanks for chiming in with your little insult
Dear CottShop, You have made a mistake. I wasn't insulting you. I very much enjoyed your rant and meant that you had cleverly busted the adversary, the media, whom I also terribly despise. Sorry that you took what I said wrong, because you gave a rant against the MSM that I thought was brilliant. Maybe it is the word "rant" you mistook as an insult, which I, for some reason tend to use also in a positive way. I think that you have a way with words. I know that for some reason they are not always spelled right (spelling is not my forte either), but that I could care less about. I am idea person, and don't look at spelling, but at thoughts, and I appreciate the way you think and put together your thoughts, because you know how to make your point in a very strong, interesting and fun way. Praise The LORD, and God bless!
sorry- I’ve just had a rough couple of days over in another thread with folks attacking me for spelling mistakes of all things- it got pretty nasty and I’m on edge because of it- and I certainly didn’t handle thigns right in that htread nor this one- I apologize
No problem. Don’t let small minded people bother you. Just blow them off. Your thoughts are great, and that’s what matters.
