Bill Clinton Headed to Minnesota, Pennsylvania

by Keith Koffler on November 3, 2012, 2:47 pm

Bill Clinton, the Obama campaign’s top surrogate, is being dispatched to Minnesota and Pennsylvania, suggesting the campaign is more worried about those states than it is letting on.

Just Friday, Obama campaign Press Secretary Jen Psaki dismissed Romney campaign efforts in Minnesota and Pennsylvania, as well as Michigan, as “mind games:”

If you look at any of those states, these are places where they’ve never been up in a poll.  They don’t have a ground game. And they don’t have a clear path to victory.  And they’re playing a bit of mind game here by trying to explore the ways they can get to 270 because they know Ohio is a tough nut for them to crack.

Recent Obama campaign advertising in Minnesota was, according to Obama operatives, merely meant to influence neighboring Wisconsin.

But Romney’s supposed mind games have spooked the campaign enough to send one of its most valuable assets, the popular former president, to St. Cloud, Minnesota – which, just for the record, is about 60 miles from Wisconsin – on Sunday.

And Clinton apparently will be back chasing phantoms once again on Monday, making no less than four campaign appearances in the supposedly impregnable Obama fortress of Pennsylvania.

Sadly Sen. Al Franken is making a number of stops Saturday on behalf of Democratic Wisconsin Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin.

I can not wait for Tuesday to end. It has been non stop election campaigning for 2 years solid with the state’s general election and then the recall election to now the presidential election. If anyone is campaign weary it’s us in Wisconsin. Next step is getting past a liberal judge in Dane Co to finish what Gov Walker has started. Nov 6th may be just the push to change it.

I hear you! I made the poor move of tuning into Fox News Watch and that Colmes started in and a single tear crept down my cheek. I don’t think I could do 4 more yrs of this nonsense–the poor thinking, the lack of research and facts, the inability to tell evidence from proof, the spin, it is almost physically painful.

There have been all kinds of motives put forth to explain why MrClinton is so active in this campaign, from securing his wife’s position in 2016 to hoping for some appointment in the next Obama administration.
My guess is that he just loves it. He’s embracing the excitement, the travel, the crowds cheering and clapping, and having the time of his life.

So close to the end of this campaign, all the candidates are preaching to the choir and aiming for good photo ops.

For the most part, the candidates are in the ‘maintain’ mode. If they let up, they may lose votes.

Bill is like hurricane sandy – a lot of hot air and then he runs out of gas. His endorsements are worthless, absolutely worthless. ALL Bill cares about is getting his Dem connections in queue for 2016. He could give a rats a** about any candidate he “endorses”. If I were a serious Dem candidate, I’d say NO THANKS to Bubba.

beammeup November 3, 2012 at 3:47 pm

I think it may be possible that some voters that are STILL on the fence might decide the election. I just hope that they remember on Tuesday that Owebama is a much better campaigner than he is a p_resident.

Sadie November 3, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Anyone still sitting on the fence should have a pile of splinters in their kazoo.or impaled on it.

Not Nabob November 3, 2012 at 11:16 pm

Amen.

Blondie November 3, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Bill needs Obama to win to protect Hillary on Benghazi. If Obama loses, there is no cover for her.

I just love the profile pic :-D

The Hurricane SANDY should have had F.E.M.A. better prepared. Yes, the President came to visit but went back home to his nice warm bed and food.

He left millions without power, gasoline, food and water.

Have we not learned yet as to what the response should be?

We know that there will be power outages.
We know that gasoline will be inn short supply.
We know food and water will be in short supply.
We know that a place to sleep will be in short supply.

Now knowing those facts what could they do before the hurricane strikes?

Have gasoline trucks fully loaded to dispense gasoline knowing that the power at gas stations may be out when needed in numerous hurricane struck areas.
Those trucks should have been filled and staged outside the disaster area for immediate relief.

Same for food and water.

Generators should have been provided as soon as possible in a staging area for those who could still use the generators in their home. Don’t wait ti’ll they have to go to Lowes.

I thought by now that we had a plan. Those Americans suffering today should not be dumpster diving for food.

That is not the America I know.

When you see Bill Clinton praising Obama what picture comes into your mind?

Is it him getting a blow job from Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office with his sperm all over her work dress and tell a National television Audience that he never had sex with that women.

Do you not remember? How about Bill Clinton being disbarred from practicing law in Arkansas and was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court over the Monica Lewinski incident.

He also paid a $25,000.00 fine over the Lewinski incident. He also paid an $850,000.00 settlement over the Lewinski incident.

He was also fined $90,000 for giving false testimony in the Paula Jones case.

So now,..Bill Clinton, a disbarred lawyer, a President who was fined
for ‘lying under oath’, has the Balls to ask the American people to believe him,.. when he says,..
“The best thing for the Country, is FOUR more years of Obama.?????????”

NO WAY, SLICK WILLIE!!! WE’VE HAD ENOUGH LIES & OVER-SPENDING FROM OUR MUSLIM PRESIDENT. MAYBE LIBYA, CHINA, or ARABIA NEEDS A FAKE,..but WE’VE HAD ENOUGH.

You make some very compelling points. How soon we forget. Seemingly, all it takes is one natural disaster to forget the misery of the last four years.

Sadie November 3, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Bubba, better stay away from the northern suburbs of Philly (Bucks County). As of yesterday, there were still areas dreaming about electricity. On another Bubba note, the “kool kids” as MSLSD continue to masterbate themselves with their meme or the week – the “Jeep Lie”. We all know, they’re not really a news network – more like entertainment for the LEFT. NBC’s fall from being the first network to the ‘worst’ reflects the demise in discourse since the 1950′s.

They love Bubba, but I doubt they’ll run this 10 second clip.

So weird how Dems are being coached to believe that BO is somehow Clinton in disguise. I suppose the Clintons are doing it so they can count on the Dem machine’s support should Hillary ever run for President.They surely can’t be silly enough to think that BO or MO will lift a hand to help them.

Girly1 November 3, 2012 at 5:23 pm

How far the mighty have fallen! If Hillary has any 2016 ambitions, she might as well throw in the towel. Lie down with dogs – get up with fleas. Bubba survived Monica-gate and even went on to gain a modicum of respect as an ‘elder Statesman’ after his heart surgery and all. He even teamed up with GHW Bush, adding more credibility. Why in the world would he throw it all away on the sleazy little thug from Chicago who is sounding more and more like his mentor, Jeremiah Wright, every day. It’s a mystery.

Julie Brueckheimer November 3, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Clinton is no gift to the Obama campaign. Maybe a Trojan Horse gift. Neither he nor his Frau want Obama to win instead of her having to run after a second, even more disastrous Obama term. After talking about how dispirited Obama supporters are, he comes out with the remark, “I may be the only person in America, but I’m even more excited about Obama this time.”

Not Nabob November 3, 2012 at 11:15 pm

Kiss my white #ss Obama campaign Press Secretary Jen Psaki. Your idiocy is showing.

Sol November 3, 2012 at 11:52 pm

plane. crash. Plane. Crash. PLANE. CRASH. …

C’mon now! Pray it with me!

gracepmc November 4, 2012 at 10:20 am

Bill covering Hillary’s rear. HC should have resigned on 9/11/2012 and the fact that she continues to masquerade as Secretary of State is a disgrace.

cincycinco November 4, 2012 at 11:29 am

Shouldn’t this read, “Bill Clinton headed to Hell?”

Nope, not MY opinion! It is WAY above MY pay grade to judge people’s final destinations!

Apparently, though, it’s not above THIS guy’s pay grade;

http://washingtonexaminer.com/pastor-who-prayed-at-obamas-inauguration-says-all-white-people-will-go-to-hell/article/2512272

Reverend Lowery gave the benediction at Obama’s inaugural after Reverend Wright proved to be too much of a “bump in the road” for a supposedly post-racial President. Seems like, he’s not much of an improvement;

“I don’t know what kind of a n—– wouldn’t vote with a black man running,” – Rev. Lowery

He’s since said that it was a JOKE! HAHAHA! FUNNY!

Most pastors do not see anyone’s salvation as a joke. And, can you imagine the riots that would ensue if, say, Billy Graham condemed all Black people to hell based on their race alone? Does ANY minister REALLY think he has the authority under God to determine that?

The saddest part of this whole farce is that we have watched many men of the cloth, revered and respected by black and white alike, decide publicly that the color of their flesh is more important than the Word of the Lord. How shallow your faith, how dry your soul, how meaningless is your praise of the Lord if you can’t obey his TWO most important commandments?

——————————————————————————–
Matthew 22:36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
——————————————————————————–
Matthew 22:39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

http://bible.cc/matthew/22-38.htm

This is Jesus talking, whom is the one person Christians are required as an article of faith to listen to. Note that loving God takes primacy, not loving your race or your President. After that, in the number 2 slot, is loving your neighbor. Not “Your Black neighbor” or “your White neighbor”, your neighbor. Nothing about race, nothing about “except the hellbound White people”, nothing at all except for the requirement of Christian love for your fellow Children of God. Do you think Reverend Lowery in this statement is expressing this love?

Unlike Reverend Lowery, I don’t know what destination the Lord has in store for him, nor do I wish him ill. I do, however, pray for him and those who he leads astray with his race based philosiphy couched as religion. I pray that he may turn back to the Lord and see and confess the error of his ways. I would not want to be in his place when he goes to stand before the Lord if he does not.

Obama does seem drawn to ministers who do not like white people, but maybe the concern is misplaced. After all, if he could sit in Reverend Wright’s church for 20+ years and not hear a thing, I’m sure he’s equally impervious to Reverend Lowery’s preaching.

Don’t worry then, Bill. God may not love you, but Obama still might…
