Wow, and WOW again!!!

Is disingenuous and smoke and mirrors indicative of the democratic party today?

After essentially trashing President Obama this week Hillary Clinton is mow engaged in a make up hug fest with the President.

So, what gives here? Which HC are we to really believe? I mean REALLY believe?

POLITICO - Hillary Clinton called President Barack Obama on Tuesday to “make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him” when she recently discussed her views on foreign policy in an interview with The Atlantic, according to a statement from a Clinton spokesman.

The statement comes amid tension between the Clinton and Obama camps in the wake of the interview. It also comes as Obama and Clinton, his former secretary of state, are due to cross paths at a social gathering Wednesday night in Martha’s Vineyard.

The statement from Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill noted that although Obama and Clinton have had disagreements, she has discussed these differences publicly before, including in her memoir, “Hard Choices.”

She talked extensively about the situation in Gaza, aligning herself tightly with Israel, and spoke in tough tones about Iran’s nuclear program. When asked about Syria’s civil war, she reiterated her past position that the U.S. should have assisted the Syrian rebels sooner, the efficacy of which Obama has rejected as a “fantasy.” And as far as the “Don’t do stupid stuff” mantra, she said it was not “an organizing principle” — something that “great nations” need.

Several Clinton supporters have stressed that she is entitled to her own views, and that she is in a bind — either criticized as overly calculating if she stays silent or faulted for being candid about what she thinks.

One of the criticisms about her interview relates to its timing: It comes as Obama is attempting to get his arms around a number of overseas crises, from Ukraine to Gaza to Syria.

  1. Hillary's doing exactly what McCain did in 2008; distancing herself from an unpopular President while trying extremely hard not to alienate the base. It wreaks of politics but I must admit to finding it at the very minimum amusing.

  2. If nothing else the politics of this nation is both amusing and dysfunctional. Of course the progressives have absolutely nothing to do with the later. Just ask them if you doubt it.
