In the news this morning, a Teachable Moment for Barack Hussein Obama: All politicians know, or should know, that rattlesnakes simply cannot be trusted to remain loyal pets when it comes to political glory and the pursuit of wealth and fame.
Inevitably, the reptile will slither in a direction that benefits the reptile’s interests, regardless of any impact on previous friends and allies.
For years, Barack Obama has employed Democrat Superstar Bill Clinton as his personal pet snake for dealing with all sorts of political crises, most of which are the sole creation of the under-qualified and extremely naïve community organizer now barricaded in the Oval Office and gasping for breath as the chickens of his Marxist health care disaster come home to roost.
On Tuesday, the Arkansas Side-winder bit The One in the posterior and, in so doing, launched the official campaign to elect Hillary Rodham Clinton as the 45th President of these once-great United States.
As reported at the reference:
In a startling rebuke to President Obama, former President Bill Clinton and other Democrats picked apart Obamacare on Tuesday as privacy concerns about the program’s web site multiplied and a video investigation suggested fraudulence among volunteers helping people enroll for government subsidies.
Mr. Clinton called on the president to make good on his repeated and emphatic promise that Americans who like their health insurance plans can keep them. The former president said Mr. Obama should take that step on behalf of consumers whose policies were canceled, “even if it takes a change in the law.”
The White House said Mr. Obama is considering a “range of options” but didn’t commit to Mr. Clinton’s proposal. In a reminder of Mr. Obama’s on-again, off-again relationship with Mr. Clinton, the president’s spokesman pointed out that Mr. Clinton tried and failed to enact universal health care.
The highly public rebuff prompted open speculation that Team Clinton has begun to distance itself from Mr. Obama in preparation for a presidential bid by Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016. “And so starts the Clinton team slowly walking away from the train wreck that is the Obama presidency,” said John Feehery, a Republican strategist in Washington.”
In essence, Clinton told Obama that he(Obama) should keep his promises, regardless of how insincere, to the American people about keeping one’s health care plan and doctor under Obamacare.
Keep one’s promise? Good gravy, what a concept! What an idea!
Bill Clinton should know that “keeping one’s promises” and “doing the right thing” are heathen notions to the current occupant of the Oval Office, a fallen Messiah from Kenya who must add a swollen butt to his lengthy list of survival mandates after being after being bitten by the side- winding weasel from Arkansas!
