Margaret Carlson: Hillary Stabbed Cuomo in the Back for Presidency

NewsMax was the first to report that Hillary Clinton was indeed running for the President.

Now, the idea of a Hillary Clinton candidacy has moved from laughter to accepted reality.

This past weekend, Margaret Carlson, co-host of CNN’s Capital Gang, said on-air that there is no doubt that Hillary is running for the White House.

Carlson, also a TIME magazine columnist, is one of the most connected liberals in Washington.

During the CNN show, Carlson explained why Andrew Cuomo pulled out of the Democratic primary in New York, throwing the race to State Comptroller Carl McCall, an African American.

Carlson said that Hillary’s sudden and unusual endorsement of McCall made Cuomo’s race untenable.

Why did Hillary make the unusual move of making an endorsement when she had previously promised to remain neutral?

Carlson said bluntly, "Hillary's running for president. They [the Clintons] wanted the black vote, and the Clintons just undermined [Cuomo].”

Carlson said Hillary’s endorsement proves the Clintons will stop at nothing to get back into the White House.

She said the Hillary endorsement demonstrated that "the Clintons will stab you in the back.”

Carlson recalled that during the Monica scandal, "The Clintons got [Cuomo’s] support during impeachment. If one Cabinet secretary had gone off during the Monica thing, Clinton would have been in a lot of trouble. Andrew Cuomo stuck by him.”

Cuomo had served as Clinton’s cabinet secretary at HUD.

Carlson complained, "They should have at least, the very least, remained neutral.”

That the Clinton are evil backstabbers is not news. That a liberal member of the liberal media admitted that the Clintons are evil backstabbers IS news.

Not Breaking, but it is FrontPage news that she would let this slip on national television, where it could be recorded.

I don't like to be negative but I'm afraid Hillary is no better than her husband. She'll never get elected President because too many people know her now.

Remember back when Clinton was first running for president and somebody produced that audio recording of old Bill saying that Mario was "mobbed up?" Remember Clinton denied it was him talking on the tape, but he called Mario to apologize?

Now we have this little act; I wonder how the great Cuomo family feels about the Clintons now?

Maybe what Hillary promised Cuomo was her support for a Cuomo NY Senate campaign in 2006 -- for her seat when she leaves office to prepare to run for Pres. in 2008.

2002 Dems get easier primary (not tha McCall is going to win), Clintons get to court black vote, Cuomo gets major boost if he waits a few years.

This is almost like Carville turning against the Clintons. I guess everybody has their limit as to how much Clinton bovine exccrement they can tolerate.

I would have liked it better if this had been Elanor "Rodham" Clift making the statement.

"the Clintons will stab you in the back"

Back Stabbing is on page 3 of the 'Toon's playbook. Page 1 is suicide and page 2 is the old "run over by a train" trick. The "back stab" technique is only brought in if the first two aren't workable.

That's what we said when she ran for U.S. Senate in New York. Admittedly, New York is not typical though I should point out that she did well outside the city.

Margaret is so stupid. It wasn't just Cuomo. All of Klink's gang of rogues stuck by him. Clinton sent them out to lie for him and they did. They put whatever shreds of reputation and honor they had out there and he left them to twist in the wind. Not one of them did the honorable thing and resigned when he pulled the rug out from under them and admitted he lied. They still stuck with him. Bunch of scum, all of them. Cuomo doesn't deserve any sympathy from anyone. He knows what the Clintons are. He made the choice to lie down with the dogs and now the fleas came back to bite him.

Probably too conservative for them. But then they probably consider Ted Kennedy and Diane Feinstein to also be too conservative.

Cuomo is finished in NYS. No-one will touch him now. He's political dead meat. And he has only himself to blame. What's really interesting is that McCall has hopped into the same bed that Cuomo was just shoved out of. Apparently Carl thinks that what happened to Andy can't happen to him. Doesn't say much for Carl, does it?

OH SURPRISE SURPRISE .. Could Carlson be waking up to the steps the Clinton's will go to get what they want

Yes maybe

But the next question is .. Will Carlson STILL back and support the Clintons no matter what??

Why would she want to leave the Senate to run for president? Lots of sitting senators run for president.

And Margaret Carlson will do everything to help the Clintoons achieve anything they desire!

During Willie's impeachment, she was parroting every word that was dictated by the Clintoons, Paul By Golly or James Carnival!

Carlson did not get canned from Time magazine. She is still with them, as the article states. Remember, she is the bitch who claimed that active military personnel use Florida as their home state so as to avoid income taxes.

As the other poster above stated, both the Cuomos and the Clintons are scum. Birds of a feather...

Spare your sympathy for Andrew.

BINGO!

It is obvious that there was a 'file' on Cuomo. He stayed 'in line' when he was supposed to.

It is also fairly obvious that there is NO file on Carlson.

This could get interesting. An avowed flaming liberal who has, in the past, carried water for the Clintons, has strayed FAR off the reservation.

Don't watch CNN and dislike Carlson even more after that crack she made in 2000 about armed forces personnel being registered to vote in FL and accusing them of the only reason they were was because there is no state income tax in FL. I mean how vile can a person be to think so little of those who put their lives on the line every day to defend our country. Semper Fi

LOL--Cumono and the rest of the Rapist Enablers deserve every back-stabbing they get.

These cowardly @sses CHOSE to make a Faustian Bargain with Queen of the Damned and defended a rapist and a perjurer during impeachement. Eventually, these lackeys will all end up in the place for which their bargain bought them a ticket: Roasting in Hell. Hell for Scumocrats is being broke, in jail, and/or out elected office. LOL

Hillary is no better than her husband.

Hillary is WORSE than its husband. As Jerry Fallwell pointed out with Sean Hannity the other night, at least Bubba put political power over his ideology however leftist that may be. Therefor, a few conservative issues got past him such as welfare reform. To Hillary, however, ideology is everything.

What I'm hoping for is yet another scandal, preferably from Bill......LOL. You know, he's *never* been this many months without a MAJOR scandal in his entire political life, so he is WAY overdue.

I figure one more really juicy scandal will finish them off. I'm counting on HIM....and he's never disappointed me yet!

Maybe this be the beginning of Cuomo's revenge against the clintbillies.

First, the clintbillies diss the family name against Daddy Cuomo, then work a truce by giving junior a spot in the administration.

THEN, they diss junior by endorsing McCall. Double-dealing clintbillies may just have met their match.

Popular opinion is that the IMPEACHED ex-42 and sinator hillary! are now in charge of NY politics.

I think the jury is still out. methinks the Cuomos still have a lot of favors out there that they can call in. Daddy Cuomo may have had enough.

This is a HUGE admission by one of the leading members of the "Knee-pad Brigade". Eventually, most if not all of the former admirers of the regime of the "Former Occupant of the Oval Office, 1993-2001" may come to realize that those people were the most self-absorbed and probably the least competent ever assembled to sit at the machinery of government in all of US history. They routinely cut, ripped and ate their own, even when things were favorable for them, and when the tide turned, they became even more voracious. Buncha spiders.

Bubba was also incapable of controlling his libido and kept tripping on his bent shrivelled ****. Just imagine the evil he would have wrought had he NOT been doing stupid things like playing "Hide the Cigar" with Monica!!

Hillary, being a post-menopausal lesbian, does not have the same carnal distractions. She is therefore much more dangerous than her rapist husband.

Wonder if there is a single FReeper who believes otherwise?! Please, if there is anyone out there who STILL believes William Jefferson Blythe Clinton didn't participate in a Conspiracy to Commit the Murder of one or more folks who were once "friends" in his life, please oh please speak up!!

Hey, at least Cuomo escaped his relationship with the Clintons with his life!!
