Bill Clinton regrets some things he said - and didn't say - on the campaign trail. But one thing he still can't bring himself to utter: Barack Obama is ready to be President.-- MICHAEL McAULIFF, DAILY NEWS
"You can argue that nobody is ready to be president. You can argue that even if you've been vice-president for eight years, that no one can be fully ready for the pressures of the office." —Former President William Jefferson ClintonWhen asked point blank just days ago whether or not Democrat presumptive nominee and Senator Barack Obama was ready to be the President of the United States of America, former President Bill Clinton answered in his own erstwhile yet indomitable, that depends on what is, is, fashion. (see story) (Play video)
The former President said, “You can argue that nobody is ready to be president.” The former President when on to say that he felt that Obama would beat McCain.
So let me see if I understand this, the Democrat Party is willing to put forward candidates (Hillary Clinton included) who are not ready to be President thinking number one that the American people are stupid enough to elect them (which was disproved in the Democrat primary) and number two Democrats don’t have to believe in the credentials of their candidates they only want to win.
Yesterday was the third day that House Republicans called the nation’s attention to the fact that Democrats in control of Congress have been a political disaster and that Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat Majority would rather be vacationing rather than voting on a resolution for the oil crisis in America. (See story)
And now Bill Clinton can’t quite bring himself to answer a simple yes or no question about the quality and readiness of the candidate that the Democrats have all but chosen to be their nominee to be President.
I guess you can argue that no Democrat should be elected to office locally or nationally but I guess that doesn’t matter because apparently what matters to Democrats is only that they win no matter what they promise. Like in the 2006 elections when they promised a new direction and all we got was partisan warfare from Democrat which caused legislative gridlock and more of the same politics.
Now they have put forward a candidate that promises new hope and change, the only thing is he’s not qualified to produce either!
Not one honest Democrat, if you can find such a thing, is willing to say that Sen. Barack Obama is ready to be President of the United States of America. But you can find plenty who says that he’s not. (play video)
If the Democrat’s greatest icon of the twentieth century William Jefferson Clinton can’t bring himself to say that Senator Obama is ready to be President why do Democrats think that they have any chance with Independents and Republicans? And they need crossover from both to win this election.
Only the rabid ultra partisans who value Party over country will vote for Barack. Only the ignorant who are enthralled with the idea of , “The first Black President” will vote for Barack. Only the enemies of America who want change, they want to see America changed and unmoored from the traditions that once made this country uniquely great, will vote for Barack.
Will Bill Clinton vote for Barack Obama?
Yes, because Bill Clinton is all of the above. In President Clinton’s own words, “The Constitution sets qualifications for the president, and then the people decide who they think would be the better president. I think we have two choices. I think he [Obama] should win, and I think he will win.”
That classic Clinton nondirect response was to the question, “Do you think that he[Sen. Obama] is qualified?” Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the man who potentially could lead your country but it’ll have to do because to anyone on knows how to interpret Clintonese the President’s answer was NO! No, Barack Hussein Obama is not ready and he is not qualified but Democrats have to win.
That my friend was Clinton’s true response layered underneath all of his pretense.
Depending of course on what is, is!
