Skip to comments.Obama's right-hand man: Trump used our playbook to beat Clinton
Posted on 06/01/2018 6:39:58 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
A forthcoming memoir by Obama confidant Ben Rhodes includes the startling admission that the 44th presidents inner circle should have seen Hillary Clintons 2016 loss coming because President Trump was essentially using the Obama playbook to discredit her.
The New York Times published excerpts of the book, "The World As It Is," which describes outgoing President Barack Obamas shock and disbelief at Trumps election victory.
But Rhodes also seems to acknowledge that Trump used some of the same lines of attack employed by Obama during the hard-fought 2008 presidential primary against Clinton minus what Rhodes describes as the racism and misogyny.
I couldnt shake the feeling that I should have seen it coming, Rhodes writes in the book. Because when you distilled it, stripped out the racism and misogyny, wed run against Hillary eight years ago with the same message Trump had used: Shes part of a corrupt establishment that cant be trusted to bring change.(continued)

Rhodes didn’t see it coming, because he had become part of the corrupt establishment that couldnt be trusted to bring change.
Pile of BS
Trump did not use Obozo’s playbook or anything like that
Trump wrote his own playbook and executed it to perfection.
These libtards will do whatever it takes to credit Obama for everything.
First Black President PERIOD
That is it libtards, that was his legacy.
Ben is a simpleton who thinks all things smart and innovative came from the orifice of Barack Hussein Obama, even though Trump has been watching and talking about the main themes of his campaign for decades, and has experience in negotiation, business, project management, and communication that make Obama look like a kid in kindergarten vs. a PhD.
Ben’s butt is gonna hurt for a long long time.
But Rhodes also seems to acknowledge that Trump used some of the same lines of attack employed by Obama during the hard-fought 2008 presidential primary against Clinton
Hillary is unlikable.
“Shes part of a corrupt establishment that cant be trusted to bring change.
BS. These clowns are taking credit from their own crimes.
First Black President PERIOD
And thanks to him there wont be another one for 50 years.
This is just an attempt to create some daylight between Obama and Hillary when we all rightly suspect, strongly, that the Obama administration went all in with the Hillary Clinton campaign to prevent the election of Trump, and once elected, went all in to damage him at every turn to prevent him from succeeding. They’re still trying to set up an impeachment scenario.
Cryin' Ben was OButtplug's @sslamprey...
They are so used to games and plays, they don’t understand that Trump was just real, and we heard him.................
To them extent that they both had the gift of unlikable and untrustworthy Hillary Clinton as an opponent, yeah, they both benefited from that. Other than that there is no similarity whatsoever.
If they win the house, they will impeach. Over nothing but they'll do it. I believe that. I also believe it will be the tipping point which tears us apart. People who support Trump will never forgive it or anyone who votes for it. And the anti-Trump obsessives will go nuts when the Senate doesn't convict him. The dems are going to literally destroy any unity we have left in this country. If they win.
Your playbook based on corruption? I don’t think so fool.
SHHHHH! Don't tell THEM that. Let them wallow admiring their own selfies.
Shes part of a corrupt establishment that cant be trusted to bring change.
What a unique strategy! Claiming your opponent is corrupt, part of the status quo and you are the better choice for change. Wow. Amazing! Original!
I think Trump outdid that strategy with 3 words. “Lock her up!”
Hey Ben, if you knew what Trump was doing Why did you Spy on him?
Rhodes don’t know what “truth” means he’s been pushing his lies so long.
“...First Black President, PERIOD.
That is it libtards, that was his legacy....”
And even then, the illegal, unqualified, ineligible, foreign, commie POS was a half breed bassturd (a high yellow in these parts) that did absolutely NOTHING for black Americans, except stir up crap and set race relations back about 100 years.
The Imposter ought to be in prison.
