Bill Clinton calls Obama an "amateur" president

May 11, 2012 | Posted by: Jim R Pickens | Full story: www.nypost.com

Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries

This should have happened. Clinton would have won the Democrat primaries easily, and America would have been assured of a competent leader no matter whether her or Romney wins.
Obama is totally inept, talking about homosexual marriage and making that THE ISSUE while unemployment has remained over 8% for most of his presidency and the economy is dead.

America has had enough Obama.

Who you wrote:

The proper way to have asked this question is?

Who do you think you are?

There was a song with those words.

A black group.

Obviously if they had sang it the way you pronounced it the words would have sounded funny.

No surprise Murdock's NT POS(t) published the expert form that POS.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ED KLEIN, AUTHOR OF NEW BOOK SMEARING OBAMA

Highlight of the article: "The nation’s top book reviews have all panned Klein and his work. The Boston Globe called him “an author devoid of credibility,” the New York Times described him as “smarmy and sleazy,” the Los Angeles Times called his work “bio-porn,” and the Tucson Citizen referred to it as “the literary equivalent of a backed up-septic tank.”(It got a grade of “F”)."

[snip] Klein is a discredited author with a history of presenting falsehoods as fact. Here’s what you need to know about Edward Klein:

1. Klein’s last book, which was self-published, suggests Obama was born on foreign soil and is a practicing Mulism. In his 2010 work The Obama Identity: A Novel (Or Is It?), Klein co-authored along with a former Republican congressman is a compendium of Obama conspiracy theories. He had to self-publish the book.

2. Klein promoted a shameful conspiracy theory that Bill Clinton raped Hillary. In his 2005 book, Klein promoted an anonymous, hateful allegation supposedly made by two people who “claim” to have spoken with Bill Clinton about the circumstances surrounding the birth of the Clintons’ daughter Chelsea.

3. Klein repeatedly questioned Hillary Clinton’s sexual orientation. He has similarly disparaged Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy and Katie Couric in previous works, leading the Washington Post to comment that Klein “has made a second career of leaving knuckle prints on famous women.”

4. Klein has a history of publishing demonstrably false allegations about Obama as fact. In a 2010 entry in The Huffington Post, Klein detailed President Obama’s “humiliation” of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu, claiming that sources told him of Obama leaving during a meeting with Netenyahu to have dinner with Michelle and their two daughters. One phone call would have revealed that to be impossible, since Michelle, Sasha and Malia were all in New York City at the time.

5. Klein’s book is being published by Regnery, a far-right imprint specializing in the promotion of conservative talking points. He was rejected by every respectable publishing house. In an interview, Klein claimed his difficulty locating a publisher was because Barack Obama was an “untouchable” subject. Yet several other books on the same subject, like Jodi Kantor’s The Obamas, set off a bidding war between the major New York publishers.

6. Even conservative critics view Klein as disreputable. Kathleen Parker, writing for the Tribune’s network of newspapers, described Klein’s 2005 book as “prurient tabloiding,” while New York Post columnist John Podhoretz said it was “one of the most sordid volumes I’ve ever waded through.” Peggy Noonan’s Wall Street Journal review said it was “poorly written, poorly thought, poorly sourced and full of the kind of loaded language that is appropriate to a polemic but not an investigative work.”

The nation’s top book reviews have all panned Klein and his work. The Boston Globe called him “an author devoid of credibility,” the New York Times described him as “smarmy and sleazy,” the Los Angeles Times called his work “bio-porn,” and the Tucson Citizen referred to it as “the literary equivalent of a backed up-septic tank.”(It got a grade of “F”).

Nevertheless, The Washington Post and Fox are reporting Klein’s latest allegations as if they were news.

I have to say that I can't argue with any of this... may the best man win.

BUT...but...HE HAS A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FOR HIS EFFORT IN THE MIDDLE EAST...

....but the wars there go on non-stop nevertheless

AND UNEMPLOYMENT IS DOWN!

....because more people have given up looking for a job, so they're no longer counted

AND OSAMA IS DEAD!

....though the intell we found in his compound was useless cause Obozo wanted to brag about it to increas his election chances

THAT'S ABOUT IT...HE HASN'T DONE MUCH ELSE...

OH..almost forgot: OUR NATIONAL DEBT IS NEARLY $17 TRILLION

....and Obama care will launch that beyond the orbit of Pluto, but Obama needs "more free sh*t" to pay off his voters with...until we go bankrupt

WE'RE NEARLY BANKRUPT!

....Obama ignores it or hope he can keep this flim-flam going until he's out of office.

AMATEUR? I THINK NOT. AT LEAST AN AMATEUR HAS SOME TINY BIT OF A CLUE WHAT HE'S DOING. IT'D BE A HUGE LEAP FORWARD IF OBAMA COULD EVEN REACH AMATEUR STATUS. HIS PERFORMANCE IS THAT OF A TEENAGER WHO'S GOT POSSESSION OF THE NATIONAL DEBIT CARD.
