Barack Obama may derail Hillary Clinton’s express train to the presidency one more time, following his 2008 humiliation of the former first lady. This time it is his own foreign policy incompetence and her supporting role as his first term secretary of state that threatens her lust to return to the White House, this time as president.
Naturally, it’s all being done anonymously, by aides, so that none of the blood appears on Hillary’s hands and she is spared the “out, out, damned spot” monologue. Amie Parnes reports in The Hill:
Allies to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are casting a stark distinction between a decisive, assertive Clinton and a pragmatic, deliberative President Obama on foreign policy.
As Obama seeks to make the case for military action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria in a prime-time address on Wednesday, Clinton supporters are saying that she would have approached the battle with ISIS in a completely different way if she were commander in chief.
“You never want to be a Monday morning quarterback on these issues because who knows how things would ultimately turn out, but Obama has been passive on these issues,” one former aide to Clinton said. “She would have taken a more aggressive approach
Another former Clinton aide took it a step further: “It’s the very notion of decisiveness,” the former aide said. “She’s not gnashing her teeth the way we’re seeing time and time again with Obama.”
This is beyond hilarious. Good luck, Hillary. Oh, and just think about the black turnout in 2016 as you trash the First Black President.
