Bill Clinton's True Feelings About Barack Obama

by baldilocks

A cer­tain advo­cate for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign had this to say while recently cam­paign­ing for Bclintonher:

[I]f you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that where we were prac­tic­ing trickle-​down eco­nom­ics with no reg­u­la­tion in Wash­ing­ton, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her.

The advocate’s name is Bill Clinton.

He takes a shot at George W. Bush in that quote, but that’s to be expected. The fun part of try­ing to fig­ure out what Bill’s motives are is to remem­ber that Hillary Clin­ton is part of that “awful legacy.” And let’s not for­get about that day dur­ing the “awful legacy” when Pres­i­dent Obama said, “I don’t have time for this,” and let Pres­i­dent Clin­ton recall his glory days for a few minutes.

But back to Pres­i­dent Clinton’s orig­i­nal words: awful legacy. I con­tend that they came from the bot­tom of his heart, logic notwith­stand­ing. It’s no doubt that Bill Clin­ton despises Barack Obama and has been look­ing for a way to get back at him ever since the 2008 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, when then-​Senator Obama implied that Clin­ton was racist after it was leaked that the for­mer pres­i­dent said this in pri­vate about the senator:

A few years ago, this guy would have been get­ting us coffee.”

It was prob­a­bly more of a sta­tus thing than a race thing, but one can’t help but be amused at the notion that the First Black Pres­i­dent is still smoul­der­ing about smear by the Sec­ond one. Delicious.

But back to President Clinton’s original words: awful legacy. I contend that they came from the bottom of his heart, logic notwithstanding. It’s no doubt that Bill Clinton despises Barack Obama and has been looking for a way to get back at him ever since the 2008 presidential campaign, when then-Senator Obama implied that Clinton was racist after it was leaked that the former president said this in private about the senator:

“A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”

It was probably more of a status thing than a race thing, but one can’t help but be amused at the notion that the First Black President is still smouldering about smear by the Second one. Delicious.
