Skip to comments.NYT: White House advisors totally surprised by Obama-Clinton press conference

Oh, Ill bet they were. Say what you will about Axe, Gibbsy, and the rest of the crew, but Id like to think they have the basic political common sense to avoid photo ops where the president has to skip out after a minute or two to go eat gingerbread cookies.
Id like to think The One had the same basic political common sense, but we learn something new every day, dont we?
The leader of the free world and the ex-leader wandered a deserted hallway, past the offices of the senior advisers, only to discover the door to the press corps briefing room locked.

The only individual who might be as natural a politician as President Bill Clinton is Governor Sarah Palin. What other “failed” vice presidential candidate ever came back and made themselves into the powerhouse that she’s become? Who else had to put up with 24/7 vilification from the press, academia, Hollywood, Broadway, TV and all the rest? And with only a handful of advisors and aides, to boot.
-0: that dirty sonofa .... he snookered me!
Another classic Clinton moment about BHO:
Whoa, I had to save that debate video, it’s just too good. I had forgotten all about that exchange. If anyone thinks that Bill or Hillary have forgotten all the things that arrogant sob said and did, they are sadly mistaken. The Clintons are shrewd and they will sink right down to Obama’s level.
When the wikileaks came out and Hillary got slammed I thought to myself, hmmmmm, and suspected that Obongo was possibly behind some of the leaks. Then Hillary announced she was finished with politics forever, she would not run for anything again. She sounded defiant and pissed off. If the Clintons want to bring O down, they can and will. I think at this point and especially after today, he has become an albatross around the neck of the Democrats. I think they want him out of there asap. I don’t think they trust him, I don’t think they like him. I think they know MO and Jarrett are running the show. I think they know that all they care about is keeping their freebies, perks and gravy train for 6 more years.
but ya think Bill Clinton has forgotten this stuff, or the way the-0 gang intimated he was racist?
NEVER in a million years.
Only if the pres and VP both die at the same time(or are incapacitated in some other manner), then the Speaker would take over. However, if Biden took over he gets to appoint his own VP and there is nothing stopping him from appointing Pukeosi.
Oh no I was really hoping there actually is a Santa Claus
I think that the Wikileaks has made the Hildebeast toast. There is stuff out there about her that makes her radioactive as POTUS. Bill Clinton knows it too, I am sure.
My guess is that Bill Clinton will run for a third term.
Under the 20th Amendment, when Congress has designated a person who is not eligible to hold the office President, the eligible person who has been certified elected as Vice President shall serve as "Acting President".
An Acting President does not, under the Constitution, succeed to the position of President in the event the ineligible person ceases to serve. Instead, the Amendment provides a method for designating an eligible person to serve as President.
Joe might get it by a back door route. If it happens before the existing session of Congress dissolves, it's likely to be either Mrs. Clinton or Nancy. After the 212th Session is installed, it is not clear.
Bill Clinton: “Obama is just a big fairy tale”
He can’t run again and he won’t.
Maybe they have the birth certificate!
Holy crap I made it!
> He cant run again and he wont.
ALTHOUGH ... he would if he could and probably has been looking for the loophole that would let him.
Clinton cannot run for a 3rd term.
both men fearing the wrath of Michelle?
Hillary hates big Mo. I’m sure Bill isn’t afraid of MO. No way. I think he was being sarcastic... meaning “ Oh them please go, God forbid MO should get mad” eye roll.
We've got good medicine in this country. You might think Clinton is one step into the graveyard, but the doctors will keep him fit for a romp on the astoturf-lined truck bed. They don't call him Slick Willy for nothing.
I bet he challenges Zer0 in the primaries, and runs for a third term.
As much as we hate him, Clinton may be the best “politican” of our lifetime.
Here is your rewrite: This shows how much he is in over his head. And it shows how desperate is Zer0.
can he not RUN? or can he not SERVE?
What if he ran in the primary against 0 and totally upset the results?
Of course he will be disqualified, but what would a BC on the ballot do to the placing for 2nd and 3rd?
Would 0 be knocked out of 2nd place allowing a second tier candidate to rise up to be next in line?
ping a lingy to myself
Ooooooh .. yeah!
Anymore big players suddenly off the field today??
I don’t know what I’d rather have Hussein than Nancy.
Excuse me while I go soak my typing fingers in acid...
"We're not gone yet."
She emerges in the confidential cable traffic as tough as any man, eager to deal with the Saudis as the unreliable ally they pretend not to be. In one signed memorandum she calls Saudi Arabia the largest source of money for Islamist terror gangs.
This is the kind of tough talk that diplomats never use in public - many of them don’t know how to talk this tough even in private - and the secretary of state was as abashed as anyone in official Washington with the WikiLeaks disclosures.
Diplomats must be able to speak freely to each other and to the home office without eavesdroppers. Nevertheless, embarrassing or not, the cable traffic reveals Mrs. Clinton as one of the toughest people in an administration of softies. But she clearly doesn’t want to go back to the future.
The secretary of state, who had repeatedly discouraged talk that she might run for president again, maybe even reprise her run against Mr. Obama, last week came close to taking “a Sherman” - named for the Civil War general who famously scotched presidential speculation with his vow that “if nominated I will not run, if elected I will not serve.”
Whoa! Prayers extended. Thanks for the Ping, Starwise.
Yeah, just like Ted Bundy was really good at being a serial murderer.
Hey Star...get this...Bo said when he ran... “Clinton (Bill) continues making statements that are not supported by the facts.”..about Him. And yet here is wanting Clinton to support what He’s doing. LOL...Insanity 101.
You mean he might tip the checker board over and go home?
Veee haf vaaaays ov making him/her talk...
>”No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice,”
at what point are you elected to the presidency? as a primary candidate? as a primary winner? after winning the general? or after the electoral college votes?
sounds like the kind of loophole an egocentric like BC would just love to parse
Look at post 167.
Hehehehe ... yep, there it is.
Beltway UScratchmineI’llscratchyours-itis .. LOL
Some kind of negotiatin’ went on there, I do believe.
Clinton is not going get around the 22nd Amendment by running for a 3rd term.
Methinks someone aught to be securing the football right about now...
doesn’t appear to be any prohibition against “running”, just being elected
Can we throw out his two communist Supreme Court Appointees too?
I am wondering whether Wikileaks cables that have been withheld so far may reveal that key US allies are horrified by Obama’s incompetence and waffling. US diplomats may have reported misgivings for example by Israel over lack of an Iran strategy and by Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Australia over China's failure to restrain North Korea and the weak US response, not to mention the Poles being exposed to Russian intimidation by removal of the missile shield to appease Putin (and the US left).
Assange could be manipulating US politics and Obama by withholding such cables and/or simply blackmailing Obama with threats to release the juicy ones.
Maybe there are cables involving diplomats reporting birth certificate or birth location witness blackmail attempts on Obama. There is a lot to play out yet with Wikileaks...
Keep in mind our friends and neighbors elected this mess. THEY are to blame.
King Lear was the first thought that came to my mind.
If O’Bammy wants to quit,Biden will give him a Full Pardon.
No way to touch him...
Spot on! I think that Zer0 has done almost zero input in the real executive operation of the Presidency. It has been a collaborative effort by a small team of ultra left operatives. He is just the front man.
Fine. That’s good. The dumb ass Democrats nominate him as their candidate and he wins the presidency. The Repubs don’t say a thing. The media doesn’t say anything either. Everyone else screams and takes Billybub to court but have no standing. It is Obama Déjà vu. Only this time the 22nd Amendment cannot be spun like the natural born citizen clause but no one in authority cares.
