The darnedest thing just happened on TV. Still happening. Obama takes Clinton to the White House press briefing room. Turns the podium over to Clinton, and leaves the room. If you didn't have the sound on your TV, it looked like Obama resigned and handed over to Clinton. Clinton still talking, setting up dueling filibuster with Bernie Sanders. Clinton at that podium is bad deja vu.
I thought it was Carter for a second.....
It does remind me of Yeltsin pushing Gorby around right after the abortive coup attempt.
Interesting question, is it not? The answer is likely even more interesting.
You have to wonder what our enemies think about it.
He just showed the world things I can't even imagine, not good.
LOL! Good one.
I agree. This is a bad sign. Obama’s been showing increasing signs of weakness since the election. Did anyone catch how Hillary was front and center responding to wikileaks leaks? It looked like SHE had become president. Have the Clintons already moved back in the White Hut?
I see Fox News made it their lead item tonight. Good move!
well according to my facts Jimmuh was at the WH last week in a big meeting w/the ‘bam. Jimmuh never got to the podium because he’s a economic nit-wit, an obfuscator and foreign policy screw-up. But these statements are not made in defense of BillyBob ;Jimmuh just isn’t on the ball anymore and has no real clout.
“too bad it will be our doofus VP taking over.”
I wouldn’t count on it.
Zero just showed the world Slick wasn’t the only fatherless boy scooped up by communists, jammed through the universities, no job, just straight to the Presidency, just the first one.
I just spoke to Rush he will be on Greta’s show tonight
Then Clinton literally hugged the podium as if to say, Im in charge.
More like ok honey im home
This is going to make a good Saturday Night Live skit!
It strikes me this could be a maneuver to get around the two-term limit.
Republicans, get busy!!
You mean the old wind bag is going to leave my house before dinner?
LOL he is going to be on fire when he gets on air I can’t wait
“What strikes me as odd...”
You hit on all the right points (and HRC saying this is her last public office).
What strikes me is that BHO seems so at ease (didn’t see video yet) -— like when he left the fundraiser dinner because he had to go back to WH to “walk the dog” and “scoop the poop.”
I have thought now for many months that DNC was getting ready to throw BHO under the bus. Even if HRC is not running, who stands in the wings to be the face & spokesman of the Dem Party until they decide what needs to be done?
Could be time for the globalists to make sure that BHO is comfortable with a new position-for-life position and to take inventory among the Dem Party members and Repub traitors to see who is on board for 2012.
Only one fly in the ointment-—the Tea Party and the fear that the American people will wake up before they get all their ducks in a row.
OTOH, someone just emailed me this thought:
I think it may also be a political distraction or refund to the Clintons for Wikileaks on Hillary
I’m late to this thread, so this has probably been said a hundred times by now, but it sounds to me like Obama just really, really needed a smoke. I lived with a smoker for many years, and there are just certain situations that trigger an unstoppable need.
Fwiw, I do think Obama is melting down. It isn’t and won’t happen all at once, however. He will keep crumbling a bit at a time until finally not even the MSM can ignore the train wreck.
Reading the comments I have a theory. Clinton just took Obama to the cleaners, on purpose. Here’s my take: Clinton offered to say a “couple of words” to the press to help out with the tax deal, and how does Obama refuse? He can’t, of course. The rest is obvious, Clinton takes over and makes Obama look like an idiot by doing the Clinton magic.
Obama is screaming to himself right now. He knows Clinton just cut his little dingles off. Clinton will be telling this story at all the cocktail parties. “Poor Barack needed help, so I took over, just like the old days. Felt like old times”
This is rich, and people saw it happen live, with no filter. Gibbs and the rest of the inner circle are all having heart attacks right now!
