First lady says there’s ‘bromance’ between Obama, Bill Clinton

First lady says there’s ‘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 Clinton’s speech, was “the public display of the bromance” that has been going on for some time.

Obama and the first lady have invoked Clinton’s 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 Clinton’s 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 Obama’s behalf this cycle, but in 2008, when his wife Hillary Clinton was competing against Obama for the Democratic nomination, Bill Clinton was one of Obama’s 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.

Clinton’s 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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

Many thanks.

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.

I suspect secret man-caves can exist without bromance figuring into the equation. They generally involve something just the opposite.
