Bill blockbuster: O’s an ‘amateur’

Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims,

“The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama.

The title of Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president, the author said.

“Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an amateur.”

The withering criticism is incredible, given the fact that Bill Clinton is actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election.

But according to the book, Bill Clinton unloaded on Obama and pressed Hillary to run against her boss during a gathering in the ex-president’s home office in Chappaqua last August that included longtime friends, Klein said.

“The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said.

Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama and had been consulted more frequently by his presidential successor, George W. Bush.

Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”

But Hillary resisted the entreaties, according to two of the guests interviewed for the book.

What he meant was, "The country needs ME!"

Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama.

Maybe Obamaumau had the same non-relationship that BJ Clinton had with Lewinski.

Obamamau sucks as President.

I would not be surprised to see the commies assassinate Obama as long as they could make it look like a white conservative did it.

At this point, his election prospects look dim.

Would the real leaders of the dim party sacrifice him for the Cause? ABSOLUTELY!

The Clintons,who never forget a grudge, must be quietly contacting potential supporters. Obama’s poor performance has already cost them the House. If they lose the Prez and Senate, the dim party will be in big trouble.

So his own party arranges his demise and then tries to win on the sympathy vote.

Purging the Secret Service could be a step in such a plot.
