The Audacity of Truth … Hillary Clinton Now Wants to ‘Hug It Out’ with Barack Obama after Trashing His Foreign Policy

 

Is there trouble in Paradise … Worse yet for Democrats, a 2016 apparent presidential nominee with Obama’s dismal foreign policy weighing her down.

It would appear that Obama has shown his thin skin again to criticism and Hillary Clinton has shown America once again that everything she does and says is for political expedience. Just days after Hillary Clinton trashed Barack Obama in The Atlantic and his foreign policy, she called President Obama on Tuesday to “make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him” when she recently discussed her views on foreign policy. HUH?  In her interview, called his decision not to assist Syrian rebels early on a “failure” and dismissed the Obama administration’s foreign policy principle of “Don’t do stupid stuff.” But that was then, this is now, even though it is only two days later. Now Hillary looks forward to “hugging it out” with Obama when they see each other tomorrow night in Martha’s Vineyard. To borrow a line from the 80′s, “Oh my God, gag me with a spoon”(Special thanks to Moon Unit Zappa and  the Solid Gold Dancers.)

Sorry Hillary, you can’t have it both ways.

The statement from Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill noted that although Obama and Clinton have had disagreements, she has discussed these differences publicly before, including in her memoir, “Hard Choices.”

“Secretary Clinton was proud to serve with President Obama, she was proud to be his partner in the project of restoring American leadership and advancing America’s interests and values in a fast changing world,” said the statement, shared with POLITICO. “She continues to share his deep commitment to a smart and principled foreign policy that uses all the tools at our disposal to achieve our goals. Earlier today, the secretary called President Obama to make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him, his policies, or his leadership.

It continued: “Secretary Clinton has at every step of the way touted the significant achievements of his presidency, which she is honored to have been part of as his secretary of state. While they’ve had honest differences on some issues, including aspects of the wicked challenge Syria presents, she has explained those differences in her book and at many points since then. Some are now choosing to hype those differences but they do not eclipse their broad agreement on most issues. Like any two friends who have to deal with the public eye, she looks forward to hugging it out when … they see each other tomorrow night.”

Bill “Bubba” Clinton asks, where’s my kiss?

How could anyone agree and intentionally want to link themselves with Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy?  Let’s understand this, Hillary does not feel comfortable criticizing a president with a 30% approval rating on foreign policy, really? That would be the reality. But instead of holding to her guns, Hillary Clinton wants to now kiss and make up with Barack Obama. Or better yet, kiss Obama’s ring and beg him for forgiveness. Welcome to the real Hillary Clinton, a typical, lifelong, establishment politician who will say and do anything in order to gain power and stand for nothing.

As Hot Air opines, in fairness to her, I’m surprised at how much Team O has pushed back. His foreign policy rating is in the toilet; she’s the nominee-in-waiting. Of course she’s going to draw some distinctions between them, and it’s to the party’s benefit that she does so.

When forced to choose between protecting their own legacy and making life easier for the next Democrat to lead the ticket, the Hopenchange boys have made their choice. If this ship is destined to sink, they’re going to make sure that Hillary takes on some water too. Excellent.

Now she has her own choice to make. Having seen how hard the White House is willing to tug on her leash as she tries to walk away, does she tone down her criticism of them on foreign policy or risk making enemies of them by keeping at it?

      This is just more progressive tactics to place blame on someone else for failure. As Secretary of State, Hillary spent million of our tax dollars running around the planet accomplishing nothing. She now wants to be absolved of that failure by blaming president zero.

      Obama has decided it’s just fine to lie. Hillary is in the same
      boat of being able to lie and misrepresent. Should they hug?
      Of course they should hug. Those without the reasonable
      expectation of integrity gather together and celebrate their
      decline from civilization. Their willingness to sacrifice
      all vestiges of honor and civility to gain power is all to
      obvious.
