Clinton takes over press conference

Oh. My. Goodness.

The minute I turn off the television, I miss something like this.

This is priceless. Obama says uh, h-h-h-here’s what I’ll say, Ive been keeping the FLOTUS waiting, I have to go.  Clinton says, I don’t want to make her mad, go ahead, and then takes questions for 20 minutes.

Here’s a clip.. There must be a longer video somewhere but I haven’t found it yet.

Lord have mercy. Looks like a coup to me.

    Laree: Jim Dandy to the rescue. Where is that video? lol


  2. Bella, I put it up on my face book wall. I will get you the link 😉 When they started floating this in news clips yesterday, I had a feeling it was Billly Jeff to the rescue again.

    It doesn’t get better than this….you know what I love most about this, it takes a hillbilly – will President Obama admit it, he needs, the bitter, gun clinging, bible hugging, stranger avoiders? Because his own base is attacking him.

      I gotta tell you, I was happy to see the old reprobate, a real American, and even better an Arkansas bitter clinger at that.

      I knew it was going to get ugly if Obama’s base ever turned on him. They are a hateful, nasty bunch.

      Now they are attacking CLINTON.

        And Bill addressed what he knew was coming next – The attacks, I’m not an office holder, fire away (He gets it, he’s a private citizen, criticizing him won’t get them anything politically). Bill Clinton is probably the best politician of our generation. It’s not about liking him or hating him…it’s kind of like giving the devil his due 😉

        If he was up there to shield Obama from the Left or to communicate the message in the most simplest terms “We are changing Course” So even Progressives could get the message. It did give me comfort to see, and hear him. Obama was tired of standing next to him smiling. Obama is always aware of people watching him. He knew this wasn’t a good image for the public but they both must have decided to get this out on Friday for public consumption. The pros out weighed the cons.

        Bill Clinton was right. This is the best deal they are going to get come January 5th, when the new Congress is sworn in -The Deal won’t be so sweet. I hope the Progressives block it “More cutting off their noses to Spite their face” The republicans can use it on them again in 2012. A kind of see we told you so moment these people don’t care about the country they care about power grabbing that’s it.

        KJ: I think that image of him turning his back and walking off was the worst possible visual, much worse than standing politely aside. And the democrats are effing him all over the place. The rank racism on the left is just stunning, the first black president ‘n’ all. 🙂 Maybe they’d like to borrow one of those tea party signs “Nobama” big O with a line through it. That would be a lot nicer than what they are saying. I saw some comments saying how heartwarming it was having both black presidents together.

        But the myth of Obama as a great communicator is over. Ripped.

      🙂 Thanks for that link. It’s like a flashback.

      I am copying this here because I can’t get there on Foxfire. IE opened it up, but just not to lose it: Well, now it works, oh well.

      The depressing truth: Given the alternative, it really would be great news.
      I can’t do justice to what you’re about to see. The spectacle of the president bugging out of his own press conference to go to a Christmas party is weird enough, but having Clinton back at the White House podium fielding questions on the hottest domestic issue of the day shoots past deja vu and lands firmly in “am I hallucinating?” territory. (The good news: It turned Twitter into an hour-long snark free-for-all, with Michael Goldfarb taking first prize.) I get that The One’s trying to leverage BJ’s popularity to pressure Democratic fencesitters on the tax deal. What I don’t get is why he’d leave him alone to address reporters, suggesting either (a) that Obama doesn’t respect a former president — who’s doing him a favor — enough to change his schedule to accommodate him or (b) Obama’s confidence in his own ability to influence the caucus is now so low that he figures the tax deal will stand a better chance if he just gets out of the spotlight entirely. The second option seems implausible given what we know of The One’s ego, but after yesterday’s revolt in the House and after a full year of epic fail in selling ObamaCare to the public, who knows what he’s thinking anymore? As a presidential scholar said to McClatchy, putting it mildly, “He is not a great persuader.”
      Adding to the exquisite oddness of the scene: Thanks to his op-ed this morning insisting that Obama totally rolled the GOP on the tax cuts deal, Charles Krauthammer is now “a brilliant man” in Clinton’s eyes. Exit question: The White House is very keen to reassure liberals that Obama is not, repeat not, trying to “triangulate” ahead of 2012. Er, is a big showy meeting at the White House with Bill Clinton really the best way to communicate that message? What’s next, a joint press conference with Dick Morris? Click the image to watch.


  3. This is one of the comment in the thread on hot air yes they are having fun.

    Black Oak saying, Ruby Starr, come on out here – made me think of this. Yep, I had this 78 rpm album back in the day Kenny Rogers when he was still The First Edition.
