“I could stand up here and say, ‘Let’s just get everybody together, let’s get unified, the sky will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing, and everyone will know we should do the right thing and the world will be perfect.” ~ Hillary Clinton, mocking Barack Obama
…I was fighting against those ideas when you were practicing law and representing your contributor, Rezko, in his slum landlord business in inner city Chicago. ~ Hillary Clinton Again
The next quote is Hillary referring to Barack Obama (I don’t even know a conservative who has wished for this)
We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.” ~ Hillary Clinton in a lighter moment
Update: Mercury News reports that Bill Clinton said the Bush tax cuts should be extended temporarily. This completely undermines President Obama’s message of letting the tax cuts expire for upper income Americans (those who make $250,000+).
Clinton also said that we should vote for Obama because he is on track to get us out of this economic mess in four years. He offered no evidence to back that up.
Maybe Clinton wants Romney to lose because if Obama continues on as he is, the country will be too far gone in four years for his wife to win. Then there is my other theory that he wants his wife in the VP spot.
Hillary Clinton has said that her becoming the VP candidate is “not in the realm of possibility” and the Joe Biden has done “an amazing job.”
Original Story: You might think I’m wrong but I believe that Bill Clinton says and does little without a deep, underlying motive.
He might have made the statements about Romney because he believes it and/or he might very well be sending a message to President Obama. That message is to dump Biden and put Hillary in his place. If Obama doesn’t, Clinton is demonstrating, with this one soundbite, what the repercussions could be for him.
Bill wants back in the White House. I hope my theory is wrong.
The thought of Hillary anywhere near the White House worries me. Hillary is popular and she is far to the left of her husband – she is an ideologue, not a pragmatist.
Hillary wants a single payer healthcare system and she is a big supporter of the treaties that supersede our sovereignty and Constitution (International Criminal Court, LOST, Rights of the Child, and the Small Arms Treaty) – heck, she’s negotiating them. She is a transnationalist and a globalist.
She has handled foreign policy ineffectively but the press makes it appear as if she has been a superior leader as Secretary of State, giving her high polling numbers. She is, at heart, a hawk but it has to be the “right” war and the “good” war.
Bill Clinton and his moment of “sincerity” –
Meet Hillary Clinton of the ’60’s, who seems like the Hillary Clinton of today to me –
…In one college speech she spoke of ecstatic transcendence; in another, she said, “our social indictment has broadened. Where once we exposed the quality of life in the world of the South and the ghettos, now we condemn the quality of work in factories and corporations. Where once we assaulted the exploitation of man, now we decry the destruction of nature as well. How much longer can we let corporations run us?” [She would have been an anarchistic Occupy Wall Street protester today]
She was in Chicago for three nights during the 1968 street confrontations. She chaired the 1970 Yale law school meeting where students voted to join a national student strike against an “unconscionable expansion of a war that should never have been waged.”
She was involved in the New Haven defense of Bobby Seale during his murder trial in 1970, as the lead scheduler of student monitors. She surely agreed with Yale president Kingman Brewster that a black revolutionary couldn’t get a fair trial in America.
She wrote that abused children were citizens with the same rights as their parents. [She is currently negotiating the U.N. Rights of the Child Treaty]
After Yale law school, Hillary went to work for the left-wing Bay Area law firm of Truehaft, Walker and Burnstein, which specialized in Black Panthers and West Coast labor leaders prosecuted for being communists. Two of the firm’s partners, according to Treuhaft, were communists and the two others “tolerated communists”. Then she went on to Washington to help impeach Richard Nixon, whose career was built on smearing and destroying the careers of people through vague insinuations about their backgrounds and associates.

Suffice it to say, it is no surprise that Clinton put Eric Holder in the AG’s office. His wife would do the same.
As an aside, I read Hillary Clinton’s book, It Takes a Village, and found it to be a socialist manifesto for raising and educating children. I strongly disagree with her philosophy. It doesn’t take a village of bureaucrats to raise a child – it takes good parents.
