Billy Boy: It's Obama's Fault

 

Could someone give Bill Clinton a sip of shut up juice? What is his problem? Is he that egotistical? Is he that out of touch? Does he secretly want to be the only member of his household to become President? There has to be something behind him continuously putting his foot in his mouth, so what gives?

Bill Clinton gaffe number 485 is Billy Boy blaming Obama for the flack he caught for likening Obama's win in South Carolina (and overall campaign) to Jesse Jackson's victory in South Carolina twenty years ago.



The former president fumed on Monday that it was Obama's campaign that injected the race issue.

"I think that they played the race card on me. And we now know, from memos from the campaign and everything that they planned to do it all along," Bill Clinton said in a telephone interview with WHYY's Susan Phillips. "I was stating a fact, and it's still a fact."

The former president says the comment was "used out of context and twisted for political purposes by the Obama camapign."
So the man known for always being on message didn't make the comment in an effort to play down Obama's pending victory in the state as nothing more than a moral victory based on racial pride? And because he was called out on his transparent attempts to marginalize Barack as the Black candidate by the media, it's Barack's fault? He might not have inhaled back then, but I wouldn't be surprised if a urine sample suggested otherwise now.

You can watch Obama's response to this nonsense here.

If only Phillips followed her questioning with a mention that Hillary Clinton did the same thing with Obama's victory in the state of Louisiana by saying the state has a very proud Black electorate.
Clinton told the interviewer that "you have to really go some to play the race card on me." Clinton then lists the reasons why no one should portray him as a racist. He includes the fact that he has an "office in Harlem, and Harlem voted for Hillary, by the way." He goes on to say, "I have 1.4 Million people around the world, mostly people of color... on the world's least expensive AIDS drugs...."
I guess he told us. Has he walked around Harlem lately? In between the hordes of Black men standing around doing nothing in the middle of the day, there's a bunch of new shops, new buildings for tan-friendly new residents pushing all of the old locals further out. Thanks for all of your help, Bill. I can't wait until he stops running for President.

The Cynical Ones.
