Why Bill Clinton Hates Barack Obama AND Hillary

Political Night Train has been tracking Bill Clinton’s activities for months now, and has reached an opinion on why he has been so ……….. erratic, making outrageous statements that seem to make Hillary’s lies pale in comparison. 

 

Much has been written about Bill Clinton’s character, and they essentially all paint a picture of an overinflated ego, narcissism (matched only by Hillary’s), fits of purple rage, self-loathing, and now, outright hatred for some.  There are currently no reasonable restraints on Bill.  He can do and say as he pleases.  But what more can be done to Bill?  He’s been Impeached by a vote of the US House of Representatives.  He’s lost law suits.  He’s been disbarred and lost his law license.  He’s apparently lost the love and respect of the black community (except perhaps for black women over 55).

 

To explain it all, understand that Bill Clinton, much like Jimmy Carter, is an ex-President in search of a positive legacy.  Carter sought his through the Carter Center in Atlanta and spent years seeking the one thing that would give him a lasting positive legacy – the Nobel Peace Prize.  But in winning the Nobel Peace Prize Carter had to share it.  And it was common knowledge that Carter only receive the prize as a political slap at George Bush.  So even the one thing that Carter wanted more than all else, like his Presidency, is tainted.  Compare Carter’s “shared Nobel” with some of the outright winners: Theodore Roosevelt, Jane Addams, Cordell Hull, Albert Schweitzer, George Marshall, Henry Kissinger, Begin & Sadat, Mother Teresa.

 

Now, is Bill Clinton really in the same league (Jimmy Carter excepted)?  And this is what Bill seeks to secure his place in history.  Oh, and Al Gore has a Nobel, just to put salt into Bill’s wounds.

 

So, what makes Bill hate?  First, to Hillary.  Bill may not exactly hate Hillary (although he has lots of reasons), but he does seem to hate the idea that she may get elected President.  Why?  A successful Hillary Presidency would greatly diminish Bill’s Presidency.  He would be reduced to a footnote in history, the spouse, former President to the more successful President Hillary Rodham Clinton.  So, deep inside, Bill wants Hillary to fail, and this in part explains may of his statements.  Simple enough, but what about Barack Obama?

 

Barack Obama is everything Bill is not (Jeremiah Wright excepted).  Obama is beloved by the press; is adored by his fans (Bill has always sought the “Elvis factor”); is a good orator; smooth; has not had any bimbo outbreaks; a nice wife and family; successful author; has 98% support from blacks, and most important, Obama IS black.  If elected, Obama WOULD be the first black President.  Bill would be just the first black President in name only.

Obama & Hillary: Trust Is The Key Issue of Their Character

After much review and thought, Political Night Train has distilled the Democratic candidates down to two key issues for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton:  Character and Competence.  Of those two issues, none is more important than Character, and under Character, for both Obama and Clinton the main are of focus is “Trust”.  One advantage of this rather long Democratic primary is that it has clearly shown that both Obama and Hillary have different, but major weaknesses when it comes to “Trust”.

For Hillary the trust issue has been along and winding road, going back many years and is due to her ingrained personality traits, those being, a major world class control freak, extreme narcissistic personality disorder, and as Bill Safire said, “a congenital liar”.  The lies have now become pathological.  Hillary just cannot tell the truth.  It all starts with her unwillingness to be truthful to herself, and this is simply a defense mechanism.

The Bosnia lie was not the latest.  Now Hillary tells a story about how her father taught her to shoot a gun.  That now makes her pro-gun rights.  Anyone who believes this latest story has been in deep freeze, or on another planet.  Here are a few more:

Lied about a $100,000 bribe, camouflaged as futures trades, from Tyson Foods Inc. At issue was a $100,000 windfall from cattle futures after a $1,000 investment.

 

Lied about speculating in Health Care industry futures while overseeing legislative reform of same.

 

Failed to correct false testimony (i.e., lies) by co-defendant Ira Magaziner in Health Care trial.

 

Lied about ordering members of the Health Care Task Force to shred documents that were the target of a court probe.

 

Lied about and obstructed justice by ordering the shredding of Vince Foster’s documents in the Rose Law Firm.

 

In 1996, Hillary was accused by the Senate Special Whitewater Committee of ordering the removal of potentially damaging files related to Whitewater from Foster’s office on the night of his death and telling aides to lie about their removal. Of course, Hillary denied everything.

 

Obstructed justice by keeping her billing records, a document sought under subpoena, in the White House residence.  Then lied about it.

 

Lied to investigators about her knowledge about billing records.

 

Lied to investigators about her involvement in the Castle Grande land flip con.

 

Lied about ordering the use of the FBI to discredit Travel Office employees.

 

Lied to investigators about her involvement in the firing of Travel Office Employees (Travelgate). In May 1993, the co-president was accused of having a central hand in firing several long-time employees of the White House Travel Office, the better to give the pricey travel business to her Hollywood pals, Linda Bloodworth Thomason and Harry Thomason. Hillary denied everything and when Whitewater Independent Counsel Robert Ray investigated Travelgate, he concluded that there was substantial evidence that involved Hillary but not enough to warrant an indictment.

 

A Federal judge orders a trial on July 25, 1994 to determine if Hillary Clinton’s heath care task force illegally operated in secret.

Here then are some of the characteristics of a narcissistic personality disorder, note that Hillary displays all these characteristics:

Remember that a narcissist’s goal is attention. His or her whole life is a game of monopoly for it all. Keep in mind that attention comes in many forms, including regard, love, and respect.

 

Grandiosity

Slander others, or treat them like dirt

Lack of empathy, or play-acting empathy, such as tears-on-demand

It’s all about getting attention

Projecting a image of oneself, even if it means telling lies

Projecting an image of oneself such that others owe the person all their attention without having to ask for it.

Haughty attitude

For Barack Obama, the full picture has not yet developed as it has for Hillary.  However, we do know that there are major trust issues related to Obama’s long term relationship with Jeremiah Wright, Trinity United Church of Christ, and James Meeks.  Obama’s embrace of Black Liberation Theology, as preached by both Wright and Meeks has questioned whether voters should trust what he is saying on the campaign trail, or what he has practiced, through TUCC for the past 20 years. 

 

 

Barack Obama’s Problems: Racism & Corruption

Barack Obama will continue to have two distinct and separate problems throughout the remainder of the primary, and if nominated, throughout the general election.  Those are racism and corruption.  Just as Bill Clinton had to deal with numerous “bimbo eruptions”, Obama will have to deal with weekly, if not daily racism and corruption eruptions.  While the media gave Bill Clinton a free pass, and the Right was not organized to fully exploit  Bill’s weaknesses, all that changed with John Kerry.  Swift-boating is already coming from the Hillary camp, and will increase dramatically if Obama is nominated.  Obama had a chance to be the first “post-race” black candidate.  His original campaign was run from the perspective that Obama was running as merely another Democrat, not as a black candidate, like Jessie Jackson.  If Obama had been able to continue to run as a “non-racial” candidate he would have been the true transitional candidate Democrats, Republicans and Independents hoped for.  But along the way, the Clinton’s, following their “win at any cost” strategy, screwed it all up for everyone.  Bill Clinton injected race as an issue, by saying there goes Barack Obama, another black candidate, winning SC, just like Jessie Jackson did.  Obama tried, but was unable to resist the bait.  Then, as if on cue from the Clinton’s, along comes Jeremiah Wright, a true race baiter and bigot.  Obama couldn’t resist the temptation.  He had to address the “race” issue head on.  In making his “race” speech, Obama did what no Clinton could do.  He acknowledged that he is in fact a “race” candidate.  This shows extreme poor judgment and character.  So, given what we now know about Barack Obama, here is a preview of what is likely to happen to Obama between now and November.

 

Pastor-gate:  Jeremiah Wright won’t go away.  Until Hillary drops out, the Clintons will continue to raise issues about Wright on a weekly basis.  Don’t be surprised if a video shows up of Wright preaching one of his anti-American sermons, and there’s Obama, Michelle and the children, right in the front.  Once Hillary is gone, then the swift-boaters from the Right take over.  There’ll be more and more information about Wright’s rants.  It won’t stop until November.

 

Black Liberation Theology:  There will continue to be questions about values, beliefs, and judgment.  How will Obama’s even tacit approval of black liberation theology taint his campaign.  Hillary will use it as a wedge issue to pull the Democratic bubba’s and rednecks over to her side.  This is probably the most serious issue Obama faces and the one that most deeply questions his judgment and core values.  How can Americans knowingly vote for someone who embraces a value and belief system that paints the white man as the devil incarnate?

 

Spiritual Advisor eruptions:  James Meeks has been one of Barack Obama’s primary spiritual advisors, second only to Jeremiah Wright.  Meeks will come under increasing scrutiny and there will be a lot of racially tainted statements linked to him.  Obama will have to explain away Meeks, just as he is doing with Wright.  Meeks anti-gay rants won’t go over very well with the gay and lesbian alliance that has good standing with the Democratic liberal left.  Here’s a sample:

 

A spring 2007 newsletter from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) named Meeks one of the “10 leading black religious voices in the anti-gay movement”. The newsletter cites him as both “a key member of Chicago’s ‘Gatekeepers’ network, an interracial group of evangelical ministers who strive to erase the division between church and state” and “a stalwart anti-gay activist… [who]… has used his House of Hope mega-church to launch petition drives for the Illinois Family Institute (IFI), a major state-level ‘family values’ pressure group that lauded him last year for leading African Americans in ‘clearly understanding the threat of gay marriage.'”

 

Probable Corruption Eruptions:  Tony Rezko; Davis Miner Barnhill & Galland law firm; Blagojevich; John Stroger; Todd Stroger; Donna Dunnings; Susan Sher; Alexi Giannoulias.  Just to name a few Obama supporters that are tainted with charges of corruption.  Here’s a sampling:

 

Obama’s ties to the corrupt Daley machine began when he was dating his wife Michelle and she brought him into the fold. Valerie Jarrett, the deputy chief of staff to Mayor Daley, hired Michelle as her assistant in 1991. Daley made Jarrett the chairman of the Chicago Department of Planning and Development and Michelle worked as her assistant in that Department during 1992-93.

 

When it came time for Obama’s US Senate campaign, Valerie Jarrett became the campaign finance chairman and worked hand and hand with fellow finance committee members, Rita and Tony Rezko, and his former boss at the law firm, Allison Davis, in fundraising endeavors.

 

Jarrett is now the CEO of Habitat Co, a real estate development and management firm which manages the housing program for the Chicago Housing Authority, the entity mandated to administer public housing, and she serves as an unpaid advisor to Obama’s Presidential campaign.

  

The Long Goodbye, Hillary Clinton Style

Jim Vandehei, an advisor to Hillary Clinton has told Politico that Hillary’s chances of winning the Democratic nomination are only 10 percent.  That’s one chance in ten!  Davidson has a better chance of taking it all in the NCAA.  The likely hood of an Obama bombshell is probably less than one-in-a-hundred.  For months now the Clinton camp has spread rumors that they have dirt on Obama.  Well, if it was Jeremiah Wright, they blew it big time.  Like so many political rumors, and this one sounds too much like a Carville-rumor, this one has, so far, been a bust.  But then, lying is a Hillary character trait, or flaw.

So, how long will Hillary play out her long goodbye?  The body appears nearly dead, but the brain is still thinking, calculating, conniving the next attack.  But like a poor archer who shakes at the critical moment, the Clinton machine can’t put a silver arrow through Obama’s political heart.  Makes one wonder just how well Hillary would respond to one of those 3 am phone calls.  Obama’s rope-a-dope straategy has worked, thus far.  Now while Hillary tries to defend her lies (remember, Bill Safire got it right when he said she is a “congential liar”), Obama is soaking up the sun in the USVI.

Much of Hillary’s character, style and campaign reminds one of Richard Nixon, especially whenhe ran against JFK.  But that’s another story, comparing Hillary to Nixon.  Recall, the Nixon-JFK, make or break moment came during the debate where Nixon looked tired and pale, while JFK, just back from a vacation, looked tanned and rested.  Will Obama look tan and rested next week in PA?

It is unlikely that Hillary will decide on her own to end the campaign.  It simply is not in her character.  Bill to the rescue, you say?  Bill shot his wad (no pun) in SC by injecting racism in the campaign.  His effectiveness is done, mostly to his own decision to inject racism.  Does Bill secretly want Hillary to fail?  Political Night Train believes this is the case.  A successful Hillary Presidency would do much to deminish Bill’s legacy.  This would explain why he’s committed numerous fatal compaign errors.  But more on that in a later article.

If not a self-imposed withdrawal from the campaign, then who will tell Hillary it is time to quit?  Bill Richardson, in his phone call to Hillary to tell her he is supporting Obama came close, but couldn’t make the leap.  Apparently he was taking a tongue lashing from Hillary.  Ted Kennedy can’t do it, as he is now in the Obama camp.  Pelosi is out, as she has taken what amounts to an anti-Hillary stand on the superdelegates.  The former Governor of NYS is out, er, on his way to a trial.  The DNC leadership is out, as they were appointed by the Clintons.  That leaves three likely candidates to do the dirty deed:  Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, or Al Gore.  Bill is unlikely to step up as he does not want to incur the wrath of Hillary, again.  Al Gore invented hating the Clintons, even more than he hates Bush.  That leaves Barack Obama to do the awful task.  Is Barack up to it?  Stepping up to the plate and telling Hillary she needs to quit would prove to all that he’s ready to lead.  What better way to prove his skills than to convince Hillary to get out?  So the question is, Barack, are you man enough to step up to the plate and take one for the team?  Or, willyou prove your real character and avoid the tough play?

Barack Obama – His Core Values & Beliefs, Part 2

There is no denying that Senator Obama gave a very good ‘race’ speech with what Political Night Train calls “surface validity”, that is, it looks good on the surface, its when you dig into the core that you find problems.  Political Night Train is now questioning the basis of Obama’s core values and beliefs and whether they are the values and beliefs we want in a President.  Certainly Senator Obama has plenty of “surface validity” to be President, but does he have the inner values and beliefs we want in a President.  Americans do not deserve another President aka Bill Clinton, with an outer persona that looks good to many people (he was bubba to some, a black man to others), but with an inner core that no one knows.  Apparently Bill Clinton had no inner core of moral values, at least none that we would want to pass on to our children.  One wonders then, what core values are Barack and Michelle Obama passing on to their children?  Are they the beliefs and values you would pass on to your children?  There are many parents in this country who were raised in racist households, black and white.  Yet, at some point, as parents, they made the break, and overtly decided that they would not raise their own children in a hate filled, racist family, and church environment.  This is truly where racism begins to die off, and you can see the effects with the twenty-something’s that are now saying “race does not matter”.  Yet, Obama is not offering them the bridge to a racism free society.  No, he’s offering then explanations as to why people like Jeremiah Wright should get a free pass.  Sorry Barack, but I don’t want my children attending Sunday School with your children, because you’ve passed on the wrong set of values and beliefs. Gil Troy is right when he asserts in his article,(my bold) Here, then, remains the Obama campaign’s great mystery. Many Americans want to believe, to trust that he is what he purports to be, that his gift for words will translate into a genius for governance. But the questions cropping up are not simply about his inexperience but his inaction. He never confronted Jeremiah Wright. He sat silently by as the United Church of Christ to which he belongs passed a resolution advocating divestment from Israel.

Obama’s political rise has been launched on the wings of Americans’ hopes that the healers will defeat the haters. His political progress would be more sure if he could point to actions backing up this rhetoric, to moments when he confronted demagogues and healed rifts. Barack Obama is not too young to have had the opportunity to prove whether he stands by his statements. Americans have the right to ask what he has done when facing the world’s Jeremiah Wrights and Louis Farrakhans. Obama’s worst, and best, moments
By Gil Troy   March 22, 2008

On Tuesday, Senator Barack Obama’s speech on race in America tried to quell the controversy over his America-bashing, race-baiting, Israel-hating pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright. For days, video clips of Wright spewing his poison threatened to neutralize Obama’s populist magic. Until Tuesday, the controversy showed Obama at his worst. His response to his pastor’s demagoguery was mealy-mouthed and disingenuous. It was impossible to believe Obama’s Clintonesque claim of ignorance, that he never “sat in the pews” during one of Wright’s wrongheaded riffs. And Obama’s failure over a twenty-year relationship to criticize his mentor’s venom stirred doubts about Obama’s judgment, patriotism, and commitment to the unity he celebrates. Yet once again, Illinois’ rookie Senator hit a grand slam with two strikes against him. Obama’s speech was thoughtful, thought-provoking, rich, complex, effective, poetic, and inspiring. Read the rest of this excellent article at http://web.israelinsider.com/views/12729.htm

Gov Bill Richardson Slams Hillary Clinton

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has endorsed Barack Obama, and is now suffering the fallout from the Clinton campaign.  Before the South Carolina primary Richardson was seen by many as a potential running mate for Hillary.  During every Democratic debate in which Richardson participted, he engaged in world class suck-up to Hillary.  Remember, Richardson was Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Energy and Ambassordor to the UN, and has the foreign policy experience needed to offset Hillary’s lack of experience.  But it seems Hillary wouldn’t give Richardson the time of day.  Almost at the same time as Richardson’s endorsement, the Obama campaign began to hammer at Hillary’s character, saying that she lacks the qualities to be President.  In particular, the Obama campaign called into question Hillary’s honesty and how she is misleading the public on her experience.  As Political Night Train has said in the article, “How Obama Wins”, this is the way to beat down Hillary.  Daily attacks on her character will take their toll.  See the Political Night Train article on “How Hillary Wins” for what her strategy should be. 

(CNN) – Bill Richardson criticized a Clinton campaign adviser Friday for suggesting his endorsement of Barack Obama is insignificant.

 

“I resent the fact that the Clinton people are now saying that my endorsement is too late because I only can help with Texans — with Texas and Hispanics, implying that that’s my only value,” the New Mexico governor told CNN’s John King.

 

“That’s typical of some of his (Clinton’s) advisers that kind of turned me off.”

 Earlier Friday, Clinton campaign senior strategist Mark Penn said he thought Richardson’s endorsement came too late to make an impact.
