Awesome: McCain’s acting in good faith in pulling out of the debate, says Clinton
hotair.com ^ | September 25, 2008 | Allahpundit

Posted on 09/25/2008 5:01:07 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Via Breitbart, here he is from this morning’s GMA, just a week after calling McCain a “great man” and mere hours before stressing how “personally, profoundly honored” he is to have him speak at his charity. This must be the first time since … ever that he and Gingrich have agreed on something. Think he’s enjoying feeding The One this turdburger in bite-sized morsels as thanks for all the racial demagoguery thrown at him during the primary?

The best part of this isn’t the “good faith” bit but his point — which he repeats, so that no one misses it — that Maverick actually wanted more debates, not less. That’ll be a handy riposte tomorrow if McCain ends up skipping out and the left starts accusing him of being scared. Exit question that’s really not a question: Dude, he’s totally voting Republican this year, isn’t he?

Yeah, I seem to recall Obambi weaseled out of his pledge to meet McCain in 10 - 20 “townhall” type forums..... didn’t Obambi say “anywhere, anytime” but of course he was lying through his teeth — he and his puppet-masters knew he’d get shredded by McCain in such freestyle forums, so of course Obambi made sure that no such events were ever actually scheduled.

Too funny. I told my better half the other day that I was torn by positive feelings toward Bill, given some of his remarks on McCain and Palin. She shot back, "You think you're troubled? I'm getting a crush on the man."

This topic reminds me of a scene near the end of Saving Private Ryan, where Captain Miller looks around, puzzled, and says "Things have taken a turn for the surreal."

LoL, Watching the Clintons this last month is like watching the ending of the GodFather, Bill is Michael taking out all who betrayed him. Bill Richardson should be hiding out because he really acted like Moe Green with his Obama endorsement.

Has anyone seen John Edwards lately? did he go fishing?

I know it was you Johnny

They should allow Obama the opportunity to debate himself. He can begin with the issue of Iran being a threat to the U.S. and its allies.

May 18, 2008: Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a serious threat to us. ...they spend 1/100th of what we spend on the military. I mean, if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance.


May 20, 2008: Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program. It supports terrorism across the regions and militias in Iraq. It threatens Israel's existence. It denies the Holocaust.

What a total, win-win situation for Bill Clinton. He gets to rehabilitate his tarnished image to the American people and get us to forgive him, pay back some long overdue favors to McCain, get air time, and give the Up Yours to the Democrat Party with a wink and a big smile on his face. He knows exactly how to work one side up against the other.

Bill Clinton is a masterful politician, and Obama used and abused him and the wife. Obama, the Dem Party and the MSM have Hell to pay, and they're just starting to realize it.

“allow Obama the opportunity to debate himself”

He could discuss his statements about the surge being a failure and the surge being a success. Man, he could be jumping all over the stage between podiums.

I think we need to fear when Clinton becomes McCain’s best buddy, eg inviting McCain to his “Global Initiative” thingy and not OBomber—

Have always thought that Bill did not want to be First Man and he would tank her to keep her out of the WH — only one President in the Clinton family and it was Bill.

I don’t think he’s intentionally undermining Hillary for 2012, but it’s a byproduct of his “campaigning” for Obama. According to Dick Morris he’s bitter about Obama implying that he’s a racist. Bill and Hillary’s contempt for Obama is poorly hidden.

Wonder what Obama will think when Bill & Hitlery have a chummy meeting with Sarah Palin? I hope to see some great photos of that. Obama will melt. It will be the Clinton's twisting the knife in deeper.

".."this cracker is just trying to help Barry""

If you listened to Rush this morning, he played what Bill Clinton said on TV shows the last few days. He dropped neutron bombs on Obama and the Rats that striked down reform years ago. And thimble size neutron bomb on Republicans that opposed him in 1998 while he was in charge.

He admires McCain and is impressed with Sarah Palin. (guess why?). (BTW, the Pakistan President hit on her according to Laura Ingraham.) FIND this story!

I don't think Clinton is going to obviously sink Obama. He doesn't like Obama and Obama's wife HATES Hillary.

Then perhaps he will become a master debater.

Hate to admit it, but I agree with your wife.. he can really be articulate and charming.

I saw him on the View the other day and I thought him absolutely compelling. He can even make Whoopi swoon... he noticed her shoes! This is a master seducer of women, and I mean master. Hillary must have given up in, oh, about 1980. How funny is this?

But on second thought, Clinton is the master triangulator. By wedging himself in between Mccain and Obama, he's buttering us up for 2012 when Hillary will look very middle of the road.

Weren't there rumors months ago that McCain might pick Hillary as VP?

Hate to say it, but when Bubba keeps it in his pants (and there is no guarantee that is happening) he is and could have been a very very great statesman. On the wrong side of course, but still.

“— only one President in the Clinton family and it was Bill.

an interesting thought, but I don’t think Billy gives a rats patoot about any legacy - The only reason he’s even keeping up the farce of a marriage is so he can get back in the WH with the roles reversed .. this time it would be HIM that gets to do whatever he feels like and he can’t be called on anything.

He would feed Obama to the dogs if he thought it would get him access to that big blue 747 and the world to play in.

I think there are many reasons for this new attitude, but one of them has to be that Obama had all but handed him a race card in the primaries. Bill may not be as sensitive as his outward personality, but I don't think he is a racist, I don't think he thinks he is, and I think he was genuinely deeply hurt by that accusation.

Bill Clinton was born under the sign of Leo the Lion. Obama put a big thorn in his paw. I don't know if he's racist or not, but the unforgivable sin was parading it as the truth all around the world. Bill Clinton is nothing if not proud...and he has a vindictive streak, plus you can't really blame the guy for being protective of his wife.

Obama really needs to watch out, he's an amateur playing a dangerous game with the master of politics.

The irony is that Bill is reaping what he has himself sown, because he did the same to his opponents back in the day. It's not so comfortable when the shoe is on the other foot.
