The Presidency is About Control, But Who Ever Controlled The Clintons?

biehillie

Being president is about control, and tell me who ever controlled Bill or Hillary Clinton. They can’t control each other. … I think it’s because Warren Buffett and Paul Volcker and others have convinced Obama, ‘You’re going to have to focus like a laser on the economy. That’s issue Number One. And give Hillary and Bill the world.’

(Bob Woodward in remarks (emphasis added) from advance transcript of tomorrow’s The Chris Matthews Show)

Perhaps you’re wondering why the proposed Obama administration is looking so familiar, kinda like a Clinton third term. It has certainly teed off the hard lefties among his supporters. Joe Conason over at Salon.com attempts to ‘splain away:

….Wasn’t Obama the One who would exorcise the Clintonite demons from our midst and cleanse the capital of their sins?….Obama no doubt understood that he would be courting disappointment or worse among those whose measure of him depended on his supposed distance from the Clintons. Having encouraged those assumptions as a matter of political necessity, he must have realized within days of his election that if he made selections based on merit, he would inevitably recruit many of the best and brightest of the last Democratic administration…..(now here comes the funny part! emphasis added))….

If her experience in national security and foreign policy were as shallow as advertised back then, after all, on what basis could he offer her the position of top diplomat? If her judgment were as poor as charged by him and others over the past two years, then why would he place such heavy responsibilities on her shoulders? If her honesty were as questionable as his campaign sometimes claimed, then how can he trust her now?

The answer is not necessarily that his campaign rhetoric was false or insincere, but that he developed respect for her over the difficult months of that harsh contest — and came to believe that she would be as formidable at his side as she was in his face.

Not dishonesty or flip-flopping eh Joe?

Jawa Report blog has a theory about the re-emergence of the Clintons: (A Conspiracy You Can Believe In):

What if the Clintons have something on Obama that they’re hanging over his head? Something so destructive and devastating to his Presidency that it could destroy it if made public? What if they’re using it to shoehorn their peeps into positions they want – essentially blackmailing him with whatever it could be? Doesn’t it just seem odd that Obama, who beat Clinton handily and won the campaign convincingly, would have to keep groveling and checking-in with Hillary and Bill? And why exactly are so many Clinton holdovers being seated in the new administration?

Gives one pause, eh? Especially with all of the lawsuits around the country seeking to settle the matter of Obama’s eligibility to be President. The most significant of these is the one by Leo Donofrio now before our Supreme Court and scheduled for conferencing by the justices on Dec. 5. For a fair and balanced account of the various cases please go to the America’s Right blog written by Jeff Schreiber. Be sure to read the sidebar there containing links to many articles and cases. Donofrio’s page* Natural Born Citizen on the blogtext.org site is now missing as well as all the other blogs there; appears to be a cyber attack. We have previously written about the eligibility question here and here.

*Update:Received word that Leo Donofrio’s site page has been resurrected  here.

Other sites to visit for further information are Michelle Malkin about Hill SecState , and about the eligibility controversy see Atlas Shrugs and TD Blog.

    Maybe they know that Bill Ayers had a hand in Obama’s book.

    Weather Underground people trained in Cuba. They collaborated with communist intelligence services.

    I think Ayers had a hand in Obama’s book. The implications are terrifying.
