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?
US Rep. Darrell Issa (CA-R) Calls Jay Carney a “Paid Liar” for the Obama Administration … “This is a problem that was in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters.”
ISSA CALLS THE IRS SCANDAL FOR WHAT IT PROBABLY IS … “coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters”.
This morning on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ with Candy Crowley, Representative Darell Issa (CA-R) called White House spokesman Jay Carney a “PAID LIAR” for the Obama administration. OUCH!!! Well, if the paid lair fits, wear it. Issa took the gloves off and called it for what the IRS scandal looks like and is. Issa stated that “the reason why Lois Lerner tried to take the 5th is not because there is a rogue in Cincinnati. It’s because problem that was coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters and we’re getting to prove it. We have 18 more transcribed interviews.
Crowley then tried to defend the Obama White House, as she did during the 2012 presidential debate between Romney and Obama, by saying that you don’t have the direct, definitive link, even though the front line agents believed and thought their directives came from Washington, DC. The SS Obama is taking on water and sinking.
From The Politico:
The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee blasted White House press secretary Jay Carney on Sunday, calling him a “paid liar” who is not being truthful about the scandal at the Internal Revenue Service.
“Their paid liar, their spokesperson, the picture behind, he’s still making up things about what happened and calling this a local rogue,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” gesturing to a graphic of Carney on the set.
“This is a problem that was in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters,” Issa said. “We’re getting to proving it.”
Issa said the White House is not being truthful or forthcoming about the scandal.
“The president’s spokesman – spokesperson – is saying whatever’s convenient at the time. The story changes,” Issa said.
“What we have is people who have to come in and transcribe interviews. They’re saying under penalty of crimes that certain things are true. We have subpoenaed documents that would support that that they say emails went back and forth,” Issa said. “We will learn the whole truth.”
HARRIS POLL … Only a Third of US Adults Qualify as Very Happy … Minorities Show Particularly Pronounced Declines in the Past Two Years
Hey minorities, how’s that “Hopey-Changey” thing working out for ya?
Even though minorities have voted overwhelmingly for President Barack Obama and Democrats, their quality of “happiness” has declined in the past two years. In the 2012 election, 93% of blacks and 71% of Latinos voted for Barack Obama, yet they are more unhappy now than in 2011. Don’t ask for things, they might come true. This is what happens when you sell your souls to one party and they know you are a sure vote. When will minorities understand that Obama and Democrats just make campaign promises and then one they have been elected, forget anything that was promised. Black and Hispanic unemployment is among the hardest hit by the failed Obama economy. But I thought Obama was going to fix all your problems and make the ills of society go away?
2008 – I don’t have to worry about putting gas in my car or worry about paying my mortgage. If I help him, he’ll help me … LOL, wanna bet?
Maybe if minorities stopped voting for Democrats and actually saw what the other party could offer them, maybe they might be more happy. But sorry, hard to feel any sympathy of folks who vote in lock-step for one party and then complain that they are still unhappy.
A Harris Poll of 2,345 U.S. adults surveyed online April 10-15 by Harris Interactive found certain groups, such as minorities, recent graduates and the disabled, trended downward in the last couple of years.
The Role of Politics
Minorities show particularly pronounced declines in happiness in the two years since the Happiness Index was last measured, with especially low happiness levels observed among the Hispanic American population; while it is important to note that a causal link cannot be established, it may not be a coincidence that this drop coincides with a political landscape that has seen frequent, sometimes contentious, discussion of immigration policy in recent months. Other findings include: African-Americans appear to be less happy than in 2011, with 36% qualifying as very happy – down from 44% in 2011. However, though happiness is down among them, they remain roughly as happy as whites (34%); in contrast, fewer than three in ten Hispanic Americans (28%) are very happy. This represents not only a decline from 2011 (35%) but also a significantly lower percentage than seen among either whites or African-Americans. Among Americans with disabilities, the percentage of those very happy has dropped from 34% to 31%- another decline which may have ties to cuts or feared cuts in services as a result of the sequester.
What, you mean being on welfare, unemployment, food stamps, disability and being dependent on the federal “Nanny state” government does not make individuals happy?
GOP Senatorial Candidate Gabriel Gomez Calls Democrat Opponent Rep. Ed Markey “Pond Scum” After Being Compared to Osama Bin Laden
Massachusetts US Senate Race: With all due respect to pond scum …
Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez called opponent Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) “pond scum” during a recent interview. Gomez did so in a response to a question regarding a dirty and disgusting ad where his opponent Ed Markey compared Gomez, a former Navy SEAL, to Osama bin Laden in an internet video that placed their images side-by-side. As Gomez stated during his interview, maybe Markey does doe realize that it was Navy Seals who actually killed Bin Laden? The internet video is truly reprehensible. For Markey to put out his first video comparing Gomez to Bin Laden, because Gomez was critical of President Obama because they released so much classified information on the Navy Seals regarding the raid that killed Bin Laden that puts the troops in harms way.
“I don’t think there’s anything more offensive,” Gomez said. “You know I’ve got four young kids,
and they gotta sit there and gotta see an ad with their dad — who served honorably,
talk to anybody I served with — whether as a pilot or as a SEAL, anybody I worked with.
And for him to be as dirty and low, pond scum, like to put me up next to bin Laden,
he’s just gotta be called what he is. It’s that simple.”
Gomez went on to say, Congressman Markey has been around for 40 years, he know what he is doing. Hmm, I thought we honored Navy Seals who defend America’s freedoms and liberties. Guess not when it comes to Massachusetts liberal Ed Markey. Is this what we need in the US Senate? Funny how Barack Obama used the death of Bin Laden and the heroic efforts of our US Navy Seals for his political advantage and his photo-op of Obama in the “Situation Room” yet Obama was no where to be found when the Benghazi Consulate was being attacked by terrorists, Ambassador Stevens was missing and they were begging for help.
Barack Obama Fails to Return Salute US Marine While Boarding Marine One on His Way to Give Commencement Address at Naval Academy
Barack Obama, the Commander in Chief failed to return salute US Marine while boarding Marine One.
Who knew that President Obama needed a teleprompter or cue cards that say, “salute Marine while boarding helicopter?” As reported at the Weekly Standard, President Obama boarded Marine One without returning salute of US Marine at the steps. UNREAL. Obama later came out and shook the hand of the Marine as obviously someone on Marine One most likely old him to. How does a Commander in Chief not return salute a US Marine? Especially seeing that he was getting on Marine One to give a Commencement Address at the US Naval Academy. What is wrong with this man? What an embarrassment.
What else would we expect from the Campaigner in Chief, the Divider in Chief and the Golfer in Chief? From Salon, Twitter shreds Obama for non-salute.
Of course Obama had no problem using the Marines as his personal umbrella holder, but some how he could not see fit to salute a Marine, on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Has Lost that Barack Obama ‘Thrill Up His Leg’ … “What Part of the Presidency does Obama Like?”
Wow, President Barack Obama is in deep trouble when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has lost the “thrill up his leg.”
The scandals are even getting to Barack Obama’s biggest cheerleader, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. With the Obama Administration facing three scandals at once, Benghazi-gate, the IRS targeting Conservatives scandal and the secretly recording of AP phone records, has made Matthews question what part of the presidency does Obama like. It would appear that even Chris Matthews have become frustrated and disenchanted with Obama. That is saying a lot. Even liberals are seeing that either this president is disengaged or lying through his teeth. Every time a scandal arises Obama acts like the first time he has heard about it was n a news report. How is that possible that a president does not know what is going on in his administration? Has Matthews ‘Lost that Luvin Feeling’? It would seem that even Matthews is wondering whether Obama is en “epic failure”. The mental health professions best get ready because many Democrats, Liberals and Progressives are going to be headed off to therapy as they realize that Obama is not “The One” they had been waiting for.
“What part of the presidency does Obama like? He doesn’t like dealing with other politicians — that means his own cabinet, that means members of the congress, either party. He doesn’t particularly like the press…. He likes to write the speeches, likes to rewrite what Favreau and the others wrote for the first draft,” Matthews said.
“So what part does he like? He likes going on the road, campaigning, visiting businesses like he does every couple days somewhere in Ohio or somewhere,” Matthews continued. “But what part does he like? He doesn’t like lobbying for the bills he cares about. He doesn’t like selling to the press. He doesn’t like giving orders or giving somebody the power to give orders. He doesn’t seem to like being an executive.”
Weasel Zippers makes a great point … Did Chris Matthews just criticize Barack “The One” Obama? Does that now make Matthews a racist? According to Chris Matthews past comments it certainly does.

During Obama IRS Scandal Presser … Announces IRS Commissioner Steven Miller Resigned, But Was Leaving in June … Obama Fires up the Bus
DRIP, DRIP, DRIP …Obama finally takes some action, although minor. And we are supposed to believe that Barack Obama just learned about all this last Friday when “We the People” learned it. Get ready Obama is firing up the Obama bus, minions get ready to be thrown under it. But how high does this really go?
This afternoon at an impromptu press conference regarding the IRS scandal, President Barack Obama announced that current IRS commissioner Steven Miller resigned. As reported at CNN, President Obama said that the “misconduct” detailed in a report about the IRS handling of requests from conservative groups is “inexcusable.” No Mr. President, IT IS ILLEGAL!!! However, despite Miller’s resignation, he is expected to testify Friday at a hearing before the House Ways and Means Committee. That should be must see TV. This resignation represents the first person who has been thrown under the Obama bus for IRS-gate. It is not even nearly enough and Obama’s comments and feigned outrage was the bare minimum he could have done to quell the fires of the multi White House scandals.
The resignation (thrown under the bus) letter can be read HERE.
President Barack Obama vowed Wednesday to hold accountable those at the Internal Revenue Service involved in the targeting of conservative groups applying for federal tax-exempt status, beginning with the resignation of the agency’s acting commissioner who was aware of the practice.
In a brief statement delivered to reporters at the East Room of the White House, the president announced that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had requested — and accepted — the resignation of acting IRS Commissioner Steven T. Miller.
The president said the “misconduct” detailed in the IRS Inspector General’s report released Tuesday over the singling out of conservative groups is “inexcusable.”
“Americans have a right to be angry about, and I’m angry about it,” Obama said.
“It should not matter what political stripe you’re from. The fact of the matter is, the IRS has to operate with absolute integrity.”
UPDATE I: But wait, according to Daily Mail, he was leaving in June anyhow. So what did Obama really do, hasten the departure by a couple of weeks?Steven Miller is ousted but writes face-saving email announcing departure when his ‘assignment ends in early June.’
Politico Reports Washington, DC Has Turned on Barack Obama … Rats Fleeing the S.S Obama … Obama Knows Nothing
Is it true, has DC turned on Barack Obama … Can You Say Watergate II? Are the rats jumping off the SS. Obama?
With the Obama administration facing three scandals simultaneously, Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate and AP-gate, the good ship Democrat S.S. Obama is looking more like the RMS Titanic these days. Barack Obama is beginning to make Richard Nixon look like a choir boy. But what did everyone expect, Obama’s “Chicago-style” politics has been taking place for years. It is only now that the MSM is being forced to cover it and Democrats are forced to acknowledge it. Democrats are fleeing the ship and the liberal MSM seems not far behind. So is as the Politico asks, has DC turned on Obama? I am not sure if I buy some of the Politico premise that the “establishment” Democrats and the MSM did not like Obama. Sorry, they have bent over backwards for this man and shoved legislation like Obamacare down the throats of Americans. The MSM has carried the water for this president and had they done their job, as they are being forced to now, Barack Obama may never have been elected in 2008 and definitely not in 2012. Democrats are fleeing Obama because “The One” is a lame duck, second term president with no more elections. However, Democrats who want to stay in power see Obama and his far too many scandals as an anchor. The MSM, after all the propaganda that they have spewed on to “We the People,” the AP scandal has forced them into a “come to Jesus” moment. Suddenly, the folks that made Obama have been slighted, more than normal by this administration. The MSM has suddenly realized that they have been defending Richard Milhous Nixon.
The one thing that rings most true in all of this is that Conservative and Tea Party folks have been vindicated in their complaints about President Barack Obama and his administration. The Left, Democrats and the MSM can no longer say their accusations are unwarranted and that they are just acting with partisan “sour grapes”. They were targeted and it is a fact … “NOT IF”. But suddenly Obama seems to have amnesia and has become Sgt. Schultz as he “knows nothing” of any of the scandals.
The town is turning on President Obama — and this is very bad news for this White House.
Republicans have waited five years for the moment to put the screws to Obama — and they have one-third of all congressional committees on the case now. Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out. And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.
Buy-in from all three D.C. stakeholders is an essential ingredient for a good old-fashioned Washington pile-on — so get ready for bad stories and public scolding to pile up.
Vernon Jordan, a close adviser to President Bill Clinton through his darkest days, told us: “It’s never all right if you’re the president. There is no smooth sailing. So now he has the turbulence, and this is the ultimate test of his leadership.” Jordan says Obama needs to do something dramatic on the IRS, and quick: “He needs to fire somebody. He needs action, not conversation.”
Obama’s aloof mien and holier-than-thou rhetoric have left him with little reservoir of good will, even among Democrats. And the press, after years of being accused of being soft on Obama while being berated by West Wing aides on matters big and small, now has every incentive to be as ruthless as can be.
With Democrats and the MSM turning on Obama it should make for a good reality TV … ‘When Libs attack One Another.’ Gone is defending Obama and his agenda at all cost as it might just cost Democrat House and Senate politicians their political career. The 2014 and 2016 elections are not that far off and self-preservation is the name of the game in DC. To make matters worse for Democrats, the front-runner Hillary Clinton does not have clean hands either.
UPDATE I: More from Instapundit on President Barack Obama knowing nothing and doing his best imitation of ‘Hogan’s Hero’s’ Sgt. Schultz … As it turns out, that is exactly what Richard Nixon said as well. So what is worse, a president with three scandals he is complicit with, or a president that has no control of his administration and is completely over his head? Both are damning to America.
IRS Targeted Conservative Groups, Tea Party, Patriots & Non-Profit Groups that Criticized the Obama Government and Sought to Educate Americans About the U.S. Constitution
If it looks like an enemies list, walks like an enemies list and talks like an enemies list … guess what America, IT’S AN ENEMIES LIST.
How bad is the recent revelations that the IRS purposely and willfully targeted Conservative groups like the Tea Party and organizations with “tae party” or “patriot” in their name? Even the not so-conservative Washington Post is coming out swinging against the Internal Revenue Service and the Obama Administration. The IRS tried to preempt the damning news on Friday that the they were targeting conservative groups, in an effort to get ahead of the story that was going to be much, much worse. Thus, the so-called IRS apology that they had been doing this since 2012 was pretty much BS as it was only the tip of the iceberg. We then found out that high ranking IRS officials knew since 2011. We are now finding out that the IRS targeted Conservative non-profits that dared used their First Amendment rights if an organization criticize the Obama government or dared sought to educate Americans on the United States Constitution. HUH? This is still America, isn’t it? Sorry, but even the liberals have an issue with this as it looks extremely “Nixonian”.
At various points over the past two years, Internal Revenue Service officials singled out for scrutiny not only groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names but also nonprofit groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution, according to documents in an audit conducted by the agency’s inspector general.
The documents, obtained by The Washington Post from a congressional aide with knowledge of the findings, show that the IRS field office in charge of evaluating applications for tax-exempt status decided to focus on groups making statements that “criticize how the country is being run” and those that were involved in educating Americans “on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.”
AMERICA … THE IRS WAS TARGETING THOSE THAT WOULD DARE EDUCATE OTHERS ON THE US CONSTITUTION!!! WHAT THE HELL HAS THIS COUNTRY BECOME UNDER PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA? HOW’S THAT FOR SOME HOPE AND CHANGE.
The IRS tried to preempt this PR nightmare with a half-hearted apology and stated, do not worry though, even though we only targeted Conservative organizations like the Tea Party, it was not motivated by politics or political bias. How can anyone say this with a straight face? The single most feared government agency acting like the “Gestapo” to intimidate those that are against the current administration and we are supposed to believe that it was not political. Really? Just curious, how many non-profits with “progressive” were targeted? Ah, nearly none.
Folks on the LEFT and the RIGHT are concerned over this situation with the IRS. As Susan Collins, the Republican Senator from Maine stated on CNN over the weekend, “This is truly outrageous. And it contributes to the profound distrust that the American people have in government.” She also stated, ”And I think that it’s very disappointing that the president hasn’t personally condemned this and spoken out.” Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers told “Fox News Sunday.” “I don’t care if you’re a conservative, a liberal, a Democrat or a Republican, this should send a chill up your spine. It needs to have a full investigation.”
Just how bad is it when the WAPO says, You Betcha the IRS should be investigated?
It’s just a coincidence that all this started just after the 2010 midterm elections when the Tea Party became a major player and inflicted a “shellacking” on the Democrat party and Barack Obama. Coincidence indeed. Also, most TRANSPARENT presidency is history, eh? But there is nothing politically motivated about any of this.
Former Democrat Rep. Dennis Kucinich was Asked Whether Benghazi Talking Points were Politically Scrubbed … His Response, “Of Course They Were, Are You Kidding?”
BOMBSHELL COMMENTS FROM FORMER REP. DENNIS KUCINICH, D-OHIO AND HARD CORE LIBERAL …
Former Democrat US Representative Dennis Kucinich and now Fox News contributor appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning and his comments regarding Benghazi were damning for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. I must say that I had to check outside the window while I was 100% aggressing with Kucinich’s remarks as I thought I saw pigs flying by. When asked by Chris Wallace during the panel discussion, if he thought the Benghazi talking points were politically scrubbed, Kucinich replied, “OF COURSE THEY WERE. COME ON, ARE YOU KIDDING”? Kucinich had previously stated that the Obama administration had to call the Benghazi attack a street demonstration otherwise it brought into play on the eve of an election the fact that the entire Benghazi policy was a failure. Then there was the damning comment of the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton run State Department … “So we went there to protect the Libyan people. We couldn’t go into Benghazi to protect our own Americans who were serving there?”
WALLACE: Congressman Kucinich, I think it’s fair to say you’re a liberal Democrat. But I want to ask you, does it bother you that the CIA, as we now know, originally wrote about links to Al Qaeda, originally wrote about having warned the State Department for months about threats in Benghazi and that all of that was taken out and let’s put this up on the screen. State Department official Victoria Nuland wrote in pushing back against what the CIA had written, that information “could be abused by members of Congress to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that either? Concerned.” This, Congressman, from the transparent administration of Barack Obama.
FORMER REP. DENNIS KUCINICH, D-OHIO: Well, I didn’t need those memos to know that it was wrong for us to intervene in Libya. This is one liberal Democrat who said the intervention was wrong. And what the attack on the consulate brings up, Chris, is the failure of the Benghazi policy from the beginning. And that’s why they had to call it a street demonstration instead of an attack because on the eve of an election that brought in a whole new narrative about foreign policy, about dealing with terrorism, and about the consequences that led to four deaths of people who served the United States.
WALLACE: So do you think those talking points were politically scrubbed?
KUCINICH: Of course they were. Come on, are you kidding? You know, this is one of those things that you have to realize, we’re in the circumference of an election, and when you get on the eve of an election, everything becomes political. Unfortunately, Americans died and people who believe in America who put their lives on the line, they weren’t provided with protection. They weren’t provided with a response. They and their families had a right to make sure that they were defended. Look, we went into Benghazi with under the assumption that somehow there was going to be a massacre in Benghazi. So we went there to protect the Libyan people. We couldn’t go into Benghazi to protect our own Americans who were serving there? I’m offended by this, and there has to be real answers to the questions that are being raised.
WALLACE: Kim, let’s assume that Congressman Kucinich is right and that the talking points were politically scrubbed to protect Hillary Clinton, to protect Barack Obama running for re-election, is that where the scandal ends? What evidence is there — there certainly were misjudgments, but what evidence is there that the administration did anything wrong, wrong, either before or during the attack?
KIMBERLEY STRASSEL, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: Well, the thing is we don’t know. And this is what we found out this week, that the official record that is out there on all kinds of things, is simply not correct. OK, so, you know, apparently the White House was not involved in the talking points. That’s not true. Apparently Hillary Clinton was just a footnote in all of this. That was not true. Apparently and supposedly their requests for aid were never denied. We’ve heard this week that that was not true. And so the White House faces an issue here, which is where do we go — where do we get these answers? And that’s why you are now hearing calls for a bipartisan select committee. The Democrats keep claiming that this is partisan, this is a partisan exercise. The only way you’re going to get these answers is if you actually put a committee, put both sides on it, give them the power of deposition, give them the power of subpoena, finally get the emails, finally talk to all the witnesses in public, and if the White House really claims it has nothing to hide, then it shouldn’t fear such an exercise. But that’s the only way that you’re going to start getting any answers on this. Otherwise it’s going to drip, drip, drip on like this week after week.
