    1. 'Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: "A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags."

    This anecdote is revealed in a New Yorker article on the relationship between Bill Clinton and Obama:

    Tim Russert told me that, according to his sources, Bill Clinton, in an effort to secure an endorsement for Hillary from Ted Kennedy, said to Kennedy, “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”'
    Bill Clinton on Obama: 'A Few Years Ago, This Guy Would Have Been Carrying Our Bags' | The Weekly Standard

    2. On top of his personal feelings about Obama, Bill ('the rapist') Clinton would like nothing better than a return trip to the White House...via a Hillary presidency.


    So....


    3. "Douglas Band, former President Bill Clinton’s top aide, plans to vote for Mitt Romney in November, according to a report in The New Yorker.

    In an extensive article on the complicated and often unpleasant relationship between Bill Clinton and President Obama, the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza reports that Band intends to cast his ballot for the former Massachusetts governor this fall.

    “According to two people with direct knowledge, Douglas Band has said that he will vote for Romney,” Lizza writes. “Band declined to comment.”

    Lizza explains that Band believes an Obama defeat will bode well for Hillary Clinton’s presidential prospects."

    4. Is it an accident that this high-placed apparatchik places this story now?
    Is it a way to blunt any effect that Bill's speech at the convention will have on the faithful?Bill giveth...and taketh away....


    5. Not only is this a glimpse into the workings of the Clinton 'deus ex machina,' but also shows that the Obama folks know how poorly they are doing: they know who Clinton is, and what he is...but felt that they needed his presence at the convention....


    It's over.
    All that's left is for the folks who put Obama in office to apologize.


    But....Democrat voters....remember this when Hillary asks for your vote.

    Are you seriously reduced to recycling the same lame talking points from the last election?

    If Obama was smart, he'd be voting for Romney as well.

    It's going to take Romney three terms to clean up the mess he'll be inheriting in 2012

    Clearly, the Clintons have no love for the Dear Leader. And i thought it was very cowardly of them to take the Secretary of State deal. It was a sad expression of their insatiable lust for power, any power. But this is some fun entertainment. Stay tuned. :)

    I'd be happy to hear your explanation of this story at this time....


    Band off the reservation without Clinton's imprimatur?
    Ya' think?

    :rolleyes:

    Romney has been running for president for six years so I'd say he is the one being recycled.

    I've got your back, paulitician....but it's not " their insatiable lust for power, any power."

    Nope!


    "After they were criticized for taking $190,000 worth of china, flatware, rugs, televisions, sofas and other gifts with them when they left, the Clintons announced last week that they would pay for $86,000 worth of gifts, or nearly half the amount."

    It's the china, flatware, rugs, televisions, sofas, silverware, and other gifts....

    Makes ya wonder what Bill's going to say at the convention, you'd think team Obama would be a little nervous about that.

    And there's a ton of irony with Bill speaking and then Sandra Fluke with regards to women's rights... :lol:
