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.
Either she doesn’t know that “bromance” is an insult to us real men, or she’s trying to “say” something.......
It is. Monica said Slick liked threesomes.
BRAIN BLEACH!!!!!! BRAIN BLEACH!!!!
BRAIN BLEACH!!!!!! BRAIN BLEACH!!!!
So they’re only kidding when they trade racial insults.
I guess they do like to cross swords after all.
Larry Sinclair’s working title for his book is “One Man Standing”, IIRC. Hearing this new information from Michelle, which one stands and which on kneels?
That’s just icky.
It’s also stupid, if she really thinks that. Clinton’s smiling to his face and awaiting his opportunity to plunge the knife in (metaphorically, in case any secret service are monitoring...)
So what will happen when Obama has to throw Hillary under the Bus?
Pff. I have a feeling that each of them is simply pretending to like the other one, for their own advantage. Narcissists don’t naturally get along with one another, they only tolerate another narcissist as long as they need to in order to get what they want.
Please God, make it stop! Make it go away!
Didn't Monica say something about 3-ways?
I’m just going to assume that means sex.
Which way is Barack facing when he bows to Clinton?
Bill’s gay too?
I surrender, and pardon my ignorance of popular culture. What in the heck is a “bromance.”
Considering how God awful Clinton looks this might be the best he can do.
‘Scuse me while I go throw up.
Combination of “brother” and “romance”
Clinton has no use for Obama; Hillary’s only chance of ever becoming president is if Obama loses; no way will the Dems get a 3rd term in 2016. Historically rare.
But instead of f-—ing each other, they’re f-—ing everyone else.
This commentary shouldn’t surprise us. Leftist women love to charge male friends are involved in a bromance. Leftist men love to play it up too.
I have male friends, but that’s all they are.
I’ve never been involved in a bromance, and I never will be.
Women can hang out with their friends and everything is okay. If a guy wants to hang out with his male friends, the Left thinks there must be bromance involved.
Talk about your twisted low-life crud mentality.
Of course Hillary is trying to insinuate that Obama and Bill are great friends. I can categorically tell you that is a load of steaming pasture patties. Clinton has now upstaged Obama a number of times in public. Obama hates his ass, and Clinton considers Obama to be on a par with his former bag valet. Those aren’t my words either.
Suppose they have a secret man-cave?
billy is the second or third most disgusting creature I have encountered. Nevertheless, we are on the same page...sort of.
There is no way the Rapist-In Chief wants Obama to win a second term. Great Caesar's Ghost! Do I concur!
We only differ in that I don't think our country could survive. It may already be too late.
The Rapist-In-Chief doesn't care as long as he has a lifetime supply of Viagra or Cialis.
Have you looked at him lately? You can sense a desperate need for chemical enhancement.
Exactly and I am sick of it.
Ann Romney will be a breath of fresh air in the White House after this ghetto rat is gone.
I suspect secret man-caves can exist without bromance figuring into the equation. They generally involve something just the opposite.
I should have said, “Sometimes...” Not trying to imply anything here.
