Obama praises ‘extraordinary’ Clinton in joint interview

© AFP US President Barack Obama heaped praise on outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a rare joint interview to be broadcast Sunday on the CBS programme “60 Minutes”, calling her “one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve had.” By News Wires (text)

US President Barack Obama Friday heaped praise on outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a rare joint interview set to renew speculation that she will run for president in 2016.

The joint sit-down interview with CBS television, which was filmed at the White House, was apparently Obama's idea.

"I just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because I think Hillary will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state we've had," Obama said in an excerpt shown on CBS ahead of Sunday's "60 Minutes" program.

"It has been a great collaboration over the last four years. I'm going to miss her," he added, saying he wished she was staying on.

Many people were surprised when Obama named Clinton to be his secretary of state, after the two fought a long and bitter battle for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in the 2008 elections.

Clinton was just beaten by Obama in the historic race, which went down to the wire, and many observers believe she could well try again to become the nation's first woman president in the 2016 elections.

A public endorsement by the sitting president would give added weight to her candidacy -- although she is already riding high in the popularity stakes with an approval rating of around 65 percent.

Sounds like Obama is trying to set up Clinton for 2016 run? what about Crazy Joe? Wonder how he is going to take this?

Maybe a little knock down, drag out war needs to be manufactured between them (HINT HINT) by whatever is left of the GOP?

How is this even remotely possible? Has the nation at large gone deaf, dumb, and blind? Are we really THAT stupid?

Hillary is an extraordinary liar and actress

Democrats hate freedom

They all democrats are in a religion and it is called socialism

Democrats hate individual rights and liberty and their God is government and so everything they democrats do is to advance their cause their religion of socialism and so to empower and grow government. and they will use any means to achieve their end even if it means lying etc.

Every single democrat every day is an evangelist and an activist for the cause, from the media reporter to obama to Fienstein to Hillary , Reid ,Pelosi , Landrue ( the “conservative” blue dog democrat who voted FOR obama care in our really conservative Louisiana)

The phrase “ONE of the best”, is a left handed compliment. It’s akin to “If I have offended anyone...”

When will someone praising the most successful Secretary of State ever list her actual accomplishments when a much larger list would be her failures.

I just had a horrendous thought we probably wont get a conservative in the WH until 2024. And I’m not sure I will still be able to see over the dirt by then.

"Are we really THAT stupid?"

Don't ask me. What do I know?

I'm the guy who said back in 1992 that there was no way the American people would ever elect a pot smoking, draft dodging hill billy as President of this country and look what happened.

I'm also the guy who said the American people would never elect a cocaine sniffing, homosexual, Marxist Communist Kenyan Muslim as President of this country and look what happened...twice.

So don't ask me. As you can plainly see; I don't know nothing.

Name me one concrete foreign policy success achieved by the Madame Secretary the past 4 years. Even Crazy Joe will outshine Hillary in accomplishments if it comes down to the both competing in 2016.

Rand Paul: Madame Secretary, I am the last voice of reason in this country. You took an oath of office, and you betrayed it. Now you come before the American people and attempt to lie your way out of your ultimate responsibility for the murder of four faithful American servants who were sup[posed to be protected by you."

"Stand up you incompetent lying hag. Stand up here in this room and accept the final responsibility for your failure! Stand up Mrs. Clinton and resign your post here and now. Tell the American people you are sorry for your failure and then resign. I want you to walk out that door with your head hung low and NEVER darken the doorway of freedom here in Washington again. Do it to cleanse your unclean soul. Ask MY God for givens. Now leave us!"

This was the interview that O’Reilly hoped tough questions would be asked. He plans to review it Monday. Don’t think he will be happy.

During the worship service, was there any mention of a single positive accomplishment by Hillary?

Can anyone think of a single foreign policy success in the last four years?

“Can anyone think of a single foreign policy success in the last four years?”

That’s my problem, too. I can’t think of a single foreign policy item that has gone “right”. Now, one could define “right” from 0bama’s standpoint, and that standpoint would be working to diminish the US in the worlds’ eyes, to cause even more wars to erupt that entice us with involvement in some s**thole somewhere, or, creating some misadministered aid program or programs that will make 0bammy look all so worldly while channeling millions into the Swiss bank accounts of an assortment of dictators and cronies. So it all depends upon your meaning of the word “right”.

OK, Hotlanta... here goes:

The Russian re-set button... huge success!
Iran's nuclear ambitions... nothing to worry about there! They don't have a bomb yet!
N. Korea testing intercontinental missiles... they don't know how to do that!
Syria killing 60,000 civilians... they're not ours!
Egypt turning on Israel... it's about time Netanyahu give in to peace!
Terrorism in the Middle East... hey, if you want an omelet, you have to break some eggs!
The freeing up of Libya... what difference does it make!
4 Dead Americans... WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!!!
Al Qaeda on fire in Africa... WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!!!!

You have to admit, that's an outstanding record for a Democrat!

Obama praises ‘extraordinary’ Clinton in joint interview

No doubt Obama finds it extraordinary that a blackmailing black man who thinks he is God can be blackmailed by a retiring white female moron into doing a joint interview on 60 Minutiae while Crazy Joe dreams about 2016 instead of an Addabraintome sugery.

Not all, just 52% of our citizens, who can be classified as useful idiots!

Again—The CBS lapdogs of the Liberals give unpaid TV facetime to two of the most narcissistic persons on the planet.

When the SHTF, it will be interesting to see what happens to CBS and all the others.
