First lady says theres bromance between Obama, Bill Clinton By Alicia M. Cohn - 09/21/12 04:43 PM ET
Michelle Obama this week acknowledged that the extended hug between President Obama and former President Clinton at the Democratic National Convention, in a surprise appearance by the president following Clintons speech, was the public display of the bromance that has been going on for some time.
Obama and the first lady have invoked Clintons name many times on the campaign trail since his well-received speech to the Democratic convention earlier this month. Both Obama and his GOP opponent, Mitt Romney, have featured Clintons policies in TV ads, with Romney charging that Obama is gutting Clinton policies and Obama warning that Romney's plan contrasts with the days of plenty represented by the Clinton years.
"Barack stays in close communication with all the former presidents, and Bill Clinton has been an important adviser, friend and supporter for a very long time, the first lady told Access Hollywood in an interview airing on Thursday and Friday this week. Barack understands that to be good at this job, you've got to learn and listen to those who've done it. And because there are so few people alive today who've done this job, you don't waste any advice. He's reached out to all the living presidents and seeks their advice and counsel."
Clinton has also headlined fundraisers on Obamas behalf this cycle, but in 2008, when his wife Hillary Clinton was competing against Obama for the Democratic nomination, Bill Clinton was one of Obamas most outspoken opponents.
We haven't been close friends a long time or anything like that, but [Obama] knows that I support him, Clinton told NBC News earlier this month.
Clintons popularity has grown since he left the presidency, which might be one reason both presidential campaigns are now referring to him as they argue in favor of their own policies.
Should be mentioned in Moanica’s new book.
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer
How urban of her.
Now, there’s been no indication that Bill Clinton switch-hits. He’s a dog, but he’s chasing bitches, to use technical canine terms.
I’m betting they are just like this (fingers are crossed) and Bill’s on top.
WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION.
Typical liberal...thinks we are interested in their GD sex or other private part lives.
Larry Sinclair might want to comment on that.
We KNOW Barry is ac/dc ~ maybe Bubba seduced him?
Ok. This takes my hatred of the Zeeb back down a notch.
But up a notch in my disgust of the Zeeb.
I just threw up in my mouth...thanks, LOL!
In the world of TMI, this is an entire universe.
No wonder America is sinking ... no one knows what English is.
Rush USED TO say, "Remember folks, words mean something"
They deserve each other. They’re both psychopathic narcissists who use others for their own gains and will say anything to anyone at any time to further their own ends. I hope they suck each other dry (figuratively, or whatever).
In that battery, I’m betting Bill is on the mound and Barry is behind the plate.
It might come in handy later on...
Wonder if they are playing “Hide the Weanie”???
Just wait till they get to the cigar scene.
Bill started it all by giving 0bendover a box of cigars.
