As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Does Bill Clinton Not Want Hillary to be President?

Honestly, honestly honestly. I think there is some secret, dark part of Bill Clinton – not that he actually has many “secret” dark parts, but stick with me here – that does not want his wife to be president. How else can one explain how this most sublime of politicians seems to do everything possible to destroy her chances?

He constructed a shady charity/business empire when he knew full well she would run for president. He helped screw up her 2008 effort with some dumb remarks about race.

The most recent unforced Bill Clinton error is his revival on the Today show this morning of the “We were so poor” theme, which Hillary already took for a test flight and crash landed with a few weeks ago.

Bill said:

Let me remind you, when we moved into the White House, we had the lowest net worth of any family since Harry Truman.

The explanation for Bill’s behavior is very simple: It’s male ego combined with grotesque infantilism.

If Hillary became president, she would then clearly eclipse him, having already been a New York senator and Secretary of State, while he was the governor of Arkansas, which I think has the population of Brooklyn or something.

So he was the governor of Brooklyn.

No offense to the people of Arkansas. I’m from New York City. I dig Brooklyn. But still.

I watched Bill Clinton closely when I covered him during during the final couple of years of his presidency, met him several times, and feel like I get him.

He is, at his core, a child stranded in the Freudian oral stage of development, ever seeking the next scrumptious thing to place into his mouth. And only his mouth. Nobody else’s.

He is America’s Greatest Living Narcissist, which is not an easy title to seize and hold. I know many pretenders to the throne in Washington.

More from Bill on Today:

Question: So she’s now running for president. Will you continue to give speeches?

BC: Oh yeah. I gotta pay our bills.

I mean, would his Secret Service detail get in the way at this point if Hillary tried to sequester him in a safe house in Kamchatka until December 2016?

Hillary’s campaign is already off to a bad start. And there is no way it will ever get to a good finish with Bill in the copilot seat.

  1. Why is there nothing on this site about the terrorist attack yesterday in Garland Texas?

    The silence is amazing! Come on Keith this is really big. Possible that Obummer cannot lie about this as he has done all the other terror attacks here.

      • Mentioned it? Like its not a big deal? Really, to me it is because Oputter has ducted all the other terrorist attacks here. Like Fort Hood just work place violence. What about the Muslim that cut off the woman s head. O call that work place. Really?

        • Please pull up the Redline Thread. Keith wrote about it and also has an article about it.
          The issue is noted at the top of the Redline news list. I may have used the wrong word (mentioned).
          I typed on the morning news thread the issue of the Fox reporter in TX mentioned several times this morning that he heard several cuncussion noices. He said the police were being tight lipped about it.

        • Von Ebb, looks like the US gets a taste of the European disease, Muslim terrorism. I saw that Geert Wilders was there giving a speech. He is a prominent, controversial ( and courageous ) Dutch anti-Islamist and an obvious target for any of these people. I guess there is prize on his head. Good thing the Texas police was well prepared .

          • Both seem to be black. But U know blacks are all in prison just because the police are picking on them. They didn’t do nothing…..right.

          • The Texas police did a fine job. However early this morning it was noted that they also paid for extra security. Think of that in good ole USA. pay to have free speech.
            I mentioned early this morning that o should have flown to Texas. No chance!

  2. Instead of making money to “pay the bills”, he could have said that he was trying to put together a retirement package for when he and the Mrs get “old”.
    Whatever his ulterior motives, MrClinton gave away his place as senior advisor or consultant with the money chase.
    I get it, I know they feel poor when everyone around them made millions or billions in the private sector while they scrounged for dimes in the couches at the White House.

    For all the obscene money grubbing the Clintons have done, we can expect no less from the Obamas once they leave the WhiteHouse. After 8 years of being served as royalty, waited upon by legions of servants, their paltry millions won’t seem to be enough to get them that private jet, the mansion with the crew of servants, and the bowing or grovelling they’re used to getting.

    • I’m sure the O’s have been watching closely for years and already have plans in the works for some “foundation” that will make them multimillionaires for life like the Clintons. I suspect Moochelle will focus on young girls, as that seems to be her emphasis whenever she travels around the world. She always speaks to groups of schoolgirls wherever she goes. As for Obummer, the community agitator will probably focus on race relations since his divisive methods have worked so well. They’ll have some bullcrap foundation for donations to their “good work” around the country and the world, plus they’ll both do books, and garner huge speaking fees both here and in other countries.

  3. It grates when people with more money than they could EVER spend whine about paying the bills. Just disgusting. Plus, if he is such a egotist, he should eat a burger or something–he looks like a bobblehead.

    • I totally agree, Star. Bubba comes off as so flipping greedy, it’s disgusting. I will never understand how the same people who demonized Romney for his wealth, after a lifetime of working, are just fine with the Clintons and their wealth, which was handed to them in exchange for power and influence. The presidency and SOS tenure have been nothing more than a lottery ticket for Shrillary and Bubba.

  4. I agree with you 100%! It just goes to show that Hilz isn’t very bright since she just can’t seem to figure this out. He wants NO successes for her, doesn’t like her, and life is ALL about him.

  5. Great article Keith. I do not think he would like anyone in his famiy having the same experience that he had.
    Maybe just maybe he could handle his daughter doing so.

  6. Hearing so much from Bill and Hill recently has reminded me of my near-Obama level of disdain I had for them back in the ’90s. Please just go away.

  7. Saw this over at Powerline Keith.

    In addition to trying to best the current Narcissus in Chief Bill is looking as skinny and scrawny and unhealthy as Barry these days.

  8. Bill is America’s Greatest Living Narcissist? I am not sure about that. He’s got tough competition from the current clown in the Oval.

  9. OT: Shooting of a black man in Baltimore.
    Crowds are responding.
    Moments ago he was running away and was shot by an officer.
    Just heard on Fox.

    • Officer Brian Moore was taken off life-support and died today. He was shot in the head yesterday by the usual suspect in Queens.
      No Riots, No Coverage.

        • Did you hear that the rioters were
          ‘directed’ to businesses that were owned Indians, non-Muslim Arabs, and Whites?

          I thought something was up when the only business owners who were interviewed on CNN were non-black.

        • So sad. God bless him and his family.

          Two twenty-five year olds gone and they couldn’t be more different. One, Freddie Gray, a drug dealer with a long rap sheet. The other, Officer Brian Moore, killed in the line of duty.

          And…which death has caused tremendous angst and turmoil, riots, and rallies and marches?

          What a country.

      • So sad. And sadder still the relative lack of attention paid to this senseless death.

        These police deaths can be traced back to this Administration’s attack on law enforcement across the US. It will only get worse.

        Haven’t heard from the new AG. Probably a good thing. That and the fact that the Baltimore politicos are marching to party orders and the fact that Sharpton and that Shabaz fellow are stirring the mob spares us Lynch intervention

        Although as chief Leo a shout out about this young policeman’s execution would have been a nice gesture.

    • Lee, you probably know by now that that was a mistaken report by Fox. No shooting:

      http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2015/05/fox-news-apologizes-for-false-baltimore-shooting-report-206569.html

      Fox News anchor Shepard Smith apologized to viewers on Monday after one of the network’s correspondents erroneously reported that a black man had been shot by police during protests there.

      Earlier in the day, correspondent Mike Tobin said he saw police officers chasing a man and that “a police officer drew his weapon and fired and struck the individual who was running away.”

      The Baltimore Police Department soon issued a statement declaring that no such shooting had taken place: “The reports of a man being shot at North and Pennsylvania Ave are NOT true,” the Baltimore PD tweeted. “Officers have arrested a man for a handgun at the location.”

      Tobin later told Smith that he had only heard a gunshot but did not actually witness a shooting. Smith then issued an on-air apology: “Sounds like what happened is we screwed up,” he said. “Mike Tobin thought he saw somebody get shot. And there was a gun and a patient on a stretcher and there is would a woman who said she saw the cop gun him down and there’s going to be violence and all the rest of that. And what we have is nothing. And the truth is, according to police, there is no gunshot victim.”

      “I’m now in correction mode and we apparently were wrong,” Smith went on to say. “Unless there’s new information that comes forward, all the information now points to there was a guy running down the street, gun fell in the street, gun went off, guy was taken into custody. He complained that he was injured or something. They put him in an ambulance and, out of an an abundance of caution, the police are now telling us, they took him to the hospital. Nobody has been shot. No police officer has pulled the trigger. And on behalf of Mike Tobin and the rest of our crew there and he rest of us at Fox News, I am very sorry for the error and glad we were able to correct it quickly.”

  10. OT – the Agitator-in-Chief has spoken:

    http://news.yahoo.com/obama-helps-launch-foundation-help-minority-young-men-185336464–politics.html

    NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama says a sense of powerlessness and unfairness among young minorities has helped fuel the protests the nation has seen in Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri.

    He says the catalyst of those protests were the deaths of young black men and “a feeling that law is not always applied evenly in this country.”

    But he says the need for greater opportunity for young people goes beyond policing. He says society bears responsibility because there “are consequences to indifference.”

    Obama spoke as he announced the launch of a nonprofit foundation to carry out the work of his My Brother’s Keeper initiative.

  11. Hillary has troubles. During the 2012 election I was for Romney and my sister was for Obama, The other night when they interviewed Donald Trump at the WH Press Dinner my sister made the comment she would vote for Trump before she would for Hillary. She saw Carly this morning and had a favorable opinion of her.

  12. I love ya, Keith, but the “America’s Greatest Narcissist” title is currently being held by Barack Obama. Bill’s going to have to wait until Obama goes away before he has a chance at being #1 again.

  13. Oh, the irony. Bubba doesn’t want Hill in the WH…neither do the voters. They want Bill! When they were in Iowa, the crowds rushed up to Bill while Hill stood around looking for someone – anyone – to approach her. It really was embarrassing. Bill is still a rock star. Hillary never was popular. Nothing has changed.

  14. Off MAIN topic –What’s with Brooklyn? — Staying in Manhattan this summer (staying west of Central Park) and taking our daughter via subway to Dumbo area of Brooklyn each day and looking for reasons to hang out –looking for Wifi down there — Where is the cool part of Brooklyn? I’ve missed it so far….

  15. OT: The winner of the art contest is now talking on Greta. Expressing the right. He reconizes the threat, and that is why he did. Free Speech, again and again and again. It is under assault.
    They had security clothsman in plain cloths there as well. He said: As artists writers and thinkers of freedom, we need to speak up. Once free speech goes. It’s over!
