Political junkies are all atwitter over the announcement that Bill Clinton will renominate Commie Obammie at the Democratic National Convention in September. And why not? It makes for great theater — if that’s what you want to call the Clinton-Obama soap opera.
Now, let’s be clear here. The Clintons and the Obamas don’t just dislike each other; they hate each other. And both have long memories. You can be sure that the godfather of the Democratic Party is still seething over Obama’s “playing the race card” on Hillary and him during the 2008 Democratic primaries.
Likewise, let there be no doubt that Obama has not forgotten Hillary’s pounding home the message that he was not experienced enough to be president. Or, more recently (according to Ed Klein’s book, The Amateur), that Bubba told a roomful of supporters that BHO was an amateur.
While these two high-profile members of the criminal class in Washington are very different political animals, they have at least three things in common.
First, they both love power. Clinton seems content to preside over his adoring liberal flock here in America, while Obama clearly has Marxian fantasies of leading a world revolution.
Second, they are both world-class liars. Clinton is famous for such knee-slapping lines as, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” But when it comes to sheer volume, Barry dwarfs Bubba. As near as I have been able to calculate, every time Obama appears on television, the first seventeen words out of his mouth are lies.
Third, they are both very clever. Clinton is clever enough to have survived the sexual-assault accusations of 7,384 women with comments like, “That depends upon what the meaning of is is.”
And Obama is clever enough to have held his nose and appoint Hillary as his Secretary of State, acting on the advice of Michael Corleone of Godfather II fame: “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.”
It is their cleverness that I think of most as I watch Bubba preparing to enter the fraudulent world of the Barack Obama. It will be interesting to see which of the two men will come out on top in their newest world heavyweight cleverness encounter.
If you like to bet on the team that was caught off guard and upset the last time around, you’d have to put your money on Bubba. But if you believe that the same knife-fighting skills that made it possible for a community organizer to pull off the unthinkable in 2008 are still viable, you might choose to place your bet on the Duplicitous Despot.
Either way, it’s going to be very bloody inside the tent, but we can take solace in knowing that a guy who is much smarter than either of these bad characters, Thomas Sowell, once said that the problem with clever people is that there is a tendency to try to continue to be clever long past the point where what they have to lose is much greater than what they have to gain.
Clinton knows that what he has to lose is a chance to sneak back into the White House holding on to Hilla the Hun’s pants suit. Obama, on the other hand, may be too arrogant to believe he has anything to lose.
Regardless, it’s going to be fun watching these two egomaniacs trying to trip each other up. And for Mitt Romney, it’s a dream come true: He’ll now be able to refer to both a current and ex-president as “nice guys.”
