“Who knew it would be so easy to get rid of him?” You mean all we had to do is just tell him to go away? And Obama would, yust like dat?
From the WaPo:
Obama introduced Clinton, said that the two had “just had a terrific meeting” and that it might be useful for Clinton to “share some of his thoughts.”
“I’m going to let him speak very briefly and then, I’ve actually got to go over and do some just one more Christmas party,” Obama said.
Clinton feigned deference for a moment.
“I feel awkward being here, and now you’re going to leave me all by myself?” Clinton said, barely suppressing a smile.
Obama, his arms crossed, stood watching Clinton for a few minutes. Then, as promised, he left.
“I’ve been keeping the first lady waiting for about half an hour, so I’m going to take off,” Obama said.
“I don’t want to make her mad,” Clinton said, smiling. “Please go.”
“You’re in good hands,” Obama joked.
Clinton’s obivious glee in the WH presser aside, does Obama think he’s fooling anyone now? Does he think that America has forgotten how he trashed the Clinton’s during the campaign? Making up in front of the cameras is always phony. Why do you think reality shows are so popular? Trotting out a smiling Clinton to promote the tax package makes Obama look even weaker. Plus the excuse there was yet another party to attend, that She Who Must Be Obeyed was (gasped whisper!) waiting, that Clinton waxed eloquent on a variety of subjects was a perfect juxtapose to the stammering, lost in the woods, teleprompter-addicted child emperor made a mundane WH press conference a historical event.
Did Bubba use The Force on Obama, or is he finally beginning to see what we all saw in November? That he is UNFIT for the job.
But there is a bigger reason not to gloat. We are stuck with this odd duck for another two years at minimum and now everyone, the entire world really, knows what he is like. They also know, if they have been paying the slightest attention, the etiology of his behavior: the man never had to face serious adversity until he was elected POTUS. And now he can’t deal with it. He’s the very model of Harry Truman’s famous advice about getting out of the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat. Obama was out of the White House briefing room the second he realized he was being outclassed by Clinton. And, boy, was he ever!
We need a leader and don’t have one. This is extremely bad news for our country, especially now.
Shear and utter incompetence.
