What Will Biden Say? Deal Struck with Bill Clinton to Get Full Endorsement Nominating Speech at Democrat Convention, in Return for Obama Endorsement of Hillary Clinton in 2016
The grand ‘Quid Pro Quo” deal from the ‘Odd Couple’ … Like any of us didn’t think that this happened behind the scenes? How else could Bubba have supported Obama and help him win the 2012 presidential election? Some one who pretty much despised.
File this one under, politicians will do anything to maintain power. As reported at the NY Post, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton struck a deal that for Bill Clinton’s support in 2012 at the Democrat National Convention, Obama would support Hillary in 2016. Talk about doing anything to maintain power. As stated at JWF, Clinton and Obama could not stand each other. Yet, for political expedience and ”for appearance’s sake they kissed and made up, aided and abetted by one of Obama’s media stooges”. Of course none of this works without an in the tank media that operates more as a propaganda wing of the White House than journalists.
How else does a person with complete contempt for Obama, actually go all in and endorse him, putting Obama over the top?
President Obama made a secret deal to support Hillary Clinton when she runs for president in 2016, campaign sources say, payback for the support her husband gave him in 2012.
Bill Clinton’s animosity toward Obama is legendary. A year before the last election, he was urging Hillary to challenge the sitting president for the nomination — a move she rejected.
According to two people who attended that meeting in Chappaqua, Bill Clinton then went on a rant against Obama.
“I’ve heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than I’ve heard from Obama,” my sources quoted Clinton as saying. “I have no relationship with the president — none whatsoever. Obama doesn’t know how to be president. He doesn’t know how the world works. He’s incompetent. He’s an amateur!”
For his part, Obama wasn’t interested in Bill Clinton upstaging him during the presidential campaign. He resisted giving him any role at the convention.
But as last summer wore on, and Democrat enthusiasm waned, chief political strategist David Axelrod convinced the president that he needed Bill Clinton’s mojo.
However, after Barack Obama was reelected, it was reported that he was going to back out on their deal and wanted to stay neutral in the next election, as is traditional of outgoing presidents. What, like Obama has never moved the goal post before? Obama is infamous for doing this when negotiating with the GOP. However, former President Bubba went ballistic. The result was Obama praising Sec. of State Hillary Clinton on ’60 Minutes’ or as we called it the ‘Slobbering Quid Pro Quo Love Affair’.
Bill Clinton went ballistic and threatened retaliation. Obama backed down. He called his favorite journalist, Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes,” and offered an unprecedented “farewell interview” with departing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The result was a slobbering televised love-in — and an embarrassment to all concerned.
Who knows whether this was true as it was provided by unnamed sources. But it certainly sounds plausible.
EXIT QUESTION I: What do you think Vice President Joe Biden is thinking after reading that BO will be endorsing Hillary in 2016? Hey Joe, this is a big “F’n” deal.
EXIT QUESTION II: With all the Obama administration scandals, will Hillary even want Obama’s endorsement?
