First shots are already being fired in Clinton/Obama post-election feud

| October 26, 2012

I posted this as an update to my post last Saturday on the coming liberal meltdown, but I think it deserves a post of its own.

First, one Wednesday Matt Bai over at the New York Times blog wrote a post on Wednesday (10/24) titled, “How Bill Clinton May Have Hurt the Obama Campaign“. Bai says:

…it was Mr. Clinton who forcefully argued to Mr. Obama’s aides that the campaign had it wrong. The best way to go after Mr. Romney, the former president said, was to publicly grant that he was the “severe conservative” he claimed to be, and then hang that unpopular ideology around his neck.

In other words, Mr. Clinton counseled that independent voters might forgive Mr. Romney for having said whatever he had to say to win his party’s nomination, but they would be far more reluctant to vote for him if they thought they were getting the third term of George W. Bush. Ever since, the Obama campaign has been hammering Mr. Romney as too conservative, while essentially giving him a pass for having traveled a tortured path on issues like health care reform, abortion and gay rights.

By an amazing coincidence, just the very next day (Thursday, 10/25), the Examiner published an article by Christopher Collins headlined, “Clinton asked for more security in Benghazi, Obama said no“, based on comments made by Ed Klein on the Blaze:

Last night, it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al-Qaeda but President Obama denied the request.

The news broke on TheBlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” hosted by Andrew Wilkow, by best-selling author, Ed Klein who said the legal counsel to Clinton had informed him of this information.

Klein also said that those same sources said that former President Bill Clinton has been “urging” his wife [Hillary] to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.

So, who are you going to bet on: Chicago or Arkansas? I think it’s a tough call, but I have to go with Arkansas — Bill won two terms as President, Barack did not. ..bruce w..
