Clinton: I Thought Obama 'Was Going to Cry' (Mitt Romney's argument "is true, we're not fixed")
Weekly Standard ^ | OCT 18, 2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 10/18/2012 11:57:21 AM PDT by Snuph

Video at link...

At a campaign event for Barack Obama's reelection campaign, Bill Clinton said that Mitt Romney's argument "is true, we're not fixed":

"Governor Romney's argument is, we're not fixed, so fire him and put me in," said Clinton. "It is true we're not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said in the debate, I had so much hope four years ago and I don't now, I thought he was going to cry. Because he knows that it's not fixed."

UPDATE: A Romney spokesman comments: "We agree with former President Bill Clinton. The economy has not been fixed under President Barack Obama. Today, more than 23 million Americans are struggling for work, poverty has increased and food stamps are at record levels. Mitt Romney believes we can do better by creating 12 million new jobs with higher take-home pay, cutting spending to put our nation on course for a balanced budget, and actually fixing our economy."

Well, let me tell you this: If you’re relying on Billy Clinton to “save your bacon,” you do not understand him.

I wouldn’t trust Bubba with a 3-minute egg.

He’s in it for himself - all the time.

Remember, HE was the first black president.

LOL. Obama trots out Clinton to campaign for him and loose cannon Clinton says whatever he wants to say, as usual. You bring out a wild bull to ride, Barry, and sometimes he bucks you off and tramples you.

Clinton wants to be the guy who “almost saved Obama” in 2012. You don’t want to upset Hillary’s base. She’s going to need that base in 2016.

He's probably really pissed that Hillary's being made the scapegoat for Obama's failings, and now is out to doom Obama's reelection chances so that he (via Hill) can regain the presidency in 2016. He may also believe that Obama's chances are not too good at this point anyway, so why not set it up for his wife next time around.

It’s deeper. Obama called him a racist in South Carolina during the 08 primary. He ran a very dirty primary fight against his wife. He made his wife SecState, then shoved her out of the way, conducting diplomacy around her. And now, this Benghazi matter happens, and he exiles his wife to Peru.

The Clintons may not have any real love for each other, but messing with Hillary? That’s Bill’s job. And nobody gets away with calling him a racist, especially some man-child of a president who had not the discipline to fight the “right wing conspiracy”. Bill knows it’s over for Obama, and now, he’s made sure he is well placed to get his vengeance for South Carolina. And it’s a dish best served cold.

Romney said something the other night that sealed it for me. While the HUBBUB was going on and Obastard and Crowlady were trying to stop Romney from talking, Romney kept saying-”Government creates nothing.” He said it a couple of times before they got him stopped.

THAT was the best point he could have ever made. He needs to get his campaign to stop saying we will create jobs. He needs them to say that he will enable the economy and business to create jobs buy turning us loose/free.

Bill "gives" with one hand and "takes" with the other.

The imagery created here, once in the mind, stays there. A grown man, crying because he failed to deliver on bold promises is not the image the Obama campaign has tried to manufacture and sell.

Bill's "generous" pity, combined with Hillary's noble CEO-type acceptance of "responsibility" on the eve of the Tuesday debate, which forced the President's reluctant "no, let me do it" response plays right into Romney's playbook now and Hillary's future plans.

“Should not have race carded his main woman.”

Affirmative. We know the bad feelings go back to that. Leftists don't see it. Mentioned it at reddit a few times, got relentlessly voted down. "Wrong".
This year's ominous "Obama is an amateur" comment from the book, another not subtle hint.

I would bet that Obama did not see it coming. Those around him? Who knows, perhaps he wouldn't listen. Part of what makes him incompetent.
Yet Bill remained the good soldier through the convention. Took one for the team, then got no thanks.
Another familiar aspect of Mr Obama’s incompetence. Closest friends ride under the bus, take the blame. All for The One.

More rumbles last week or so... Clinton complains “the phone never rings”.

The last straw had to be leaving Hill
to take the heat for Libya.

But still, Bill is first a Democrat, and loyal to that. This is the only source of some surprise on my part. This is debatable, it may well simply be revenge. But I conclude that because he is willing to unload now, at Obama’s weakest, neediest moment, Bill must believe it is over. Big D internals must spell disaster. He knows Obama is going to lose.

I don't trust him either. However, this was not a "misstatement" or "poor choice of words" on Clinton's part. He knows exactly what he's doing, and has a reason for saying what he said in the manner in which he said it. Obama has his hands full with Romney, but at the same time, he also needs to keep one eye on the Clintons. This is getting more interesting with each passing day.

Around the 50 minute mark of the debate. Obama really doesn’t look like he is going to cry after the question - or that he is upset. Clinton is smacking Jughead between the ears...

Both Hillary and Bill are giving Romney TV commercials ON PURPOSE, but with deniability. He’ll walk it back if challenged, to keep his standing, but if you watch Bill Clinton in interviews his wheels are spinning on EVERY word.

Clinton: ‘Obuma was going to cry’ and

Stop Whining seems out of place telling women to live with the choices they make etc., might be a message for Obuma..
