Bill Clinton is at it again. He said that he has “never seen a candidate treated so disrespectfully just for running,” his wife that is. He unleashed this barrage in South Dakota today detailing how his wife has been treated during her presidential bid, telling the crowd that “she will win the general election if you nominate her. They’re just trying to make sure you don’t.”Media reports said that Clinton spent more than six minutes calmly discussing what he called a “frantic effort to push her out” of this race, saying that no one asked Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson or Gary Hart to end their presidential campaigns early.
Clinton also spoke against bullying superdelegates to make up their minds, saying, “I can’t believe it. It is just frantic the way they are trying to push and pressure and bully all these superdelegates to come out. ‘Oh, this is so terrible: The people they want her. Oh, this is so terrible: She is winning the general election, and he is not. Oh my goodness, we have to cover this up.” Yes, he finally said it, what we have here blocking Hillary Clinton’s path to the White House is a “cover-up.” Bill Clinton is out of his mind!
“If you vote for her and she does well in Montana and she does well in Puerto Rico, when this is over she will be ahead in the popular vote,” Clinton said. “And they’re trying to get her to cry uncle before the Democratic Party has to decide what to do in Florida and Michigan because they are claiming that it only takes 2029 votes on the first ballot to win, and it takes a lot more than that if you put Florida and Michigan back in. Well, they will have to unless we want to lose the election. I mean, look, so there is that that is going on.”
“She is winning the general election today and he is not, according to all the evidence,” Clinton said. “And I have never seen anything like it. I have never seen a candidate treated so disrespectfully just for running. Her only position was, “Look, if I lose I’ll be a good team player. We will all try to win but let’s let everybody vote and count every vote.'”
Of course, he would not conclude this thrashing with giving the media a tongue-lashing. He said that ever since Iowa they have been against his wife, making him feel as though he was living in a “fun house.” As he concluded his thoughts on how this election has been handled, he again went back to the media’s choice of coverage. “If you notice, there hasn’t been a lot of publicity on these polls I just told you about,” Clinton said. “It is the first time you’ve heard it? Why do you think that is? Why do you think? Don’t you think if the polls were the reverse and he was winning the electoral college against Sen. McCain and Hillary was losing it, it would be blasted on every television station? You would know it wouldn’t you? It wouldn’t be a little secret. And there is another Electoral College poll that I saw yesterday had her over 300 electoral votes, yeah. She will win the general election is you nominate her. They’re just trying to make sure you don’t.”
Every time Bill Clinton comes out swinging for his wife it backfires. I guess this is nothing more than desperation on the part of Team Clinton and the fact that their precious dream of being the only husband-wife team to be president of the USA is fading fast. Bill Clinton, for what it is worth, back in the day was a good campaigner and an astute politician. It seems that he has lost his mojo or something to that effect. He is not the masterful politician and campaigner as he once was. So, do we need to sit through another tongue-lashing from Bill Clinton about how the nomination process is going? Everything the Clintons do is calculating and intentional. I think the American people are just tired of politics as usual and the political establishments in Washington D.C. I guess the Republicans are happy because they feel that Barack Obama is the weaker of the two candidates, as it has been said in the media. Well, I guess Bill Clinton is about to put his foot right back into his mouth with comments about a “cover-up.” He needs to just get real, Team Clinton has no one to blame for this campaign but Team Clinton. Had they done the right thing and not alienated and insulted voters, as well as embellished the truth in numerous instances, then I am pretty sure that Hillary Clinton may have been the nominee from the Democratic Party by now. With her recent comments about Robert Kennedy’s assassination, she has essentially taken herself out of serious contention for the vice presidential spot. Just my thoughts, you be the judge….
