Bill Clinton: Obama Is an “Amateur” and “Incompetent”

The Amateur

Bill Clinton says Obama is an “amateur” and “incompetent” in a new biography on Barack Obama. The book’s title, “The Amateur”, was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president
The New York Post reported:

Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims.

“The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama.

The title of Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president, the author said.

“Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an amateur.”

The withering criticism is incredible, given the fact that Bill Clinton is actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election.

But according to the book, Bill Clinton unloaded on Obama and pressed Hillary to run against her boss during a gathering in the ex-president’s home office in Chappaqua last August that included longtime friends, Klein said.

“The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said.

Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama and had been consulted more frequently by his presidential successor, George W. Bush.

Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”

    Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.” Now, I ask anyone of you here. Why does it mean so much when Clinton says it. Womanizer in Chief. And I ask you, not to be naive, WHO AMONG US, HERE, DIDN’T KNOW THIS during campaign of 08 BUT CLINTON SAYS IT JUST ABOUT 3 1/2 TO 4 YEARS TOO LATE, AND HE TOO IS MANIPULATING AND DECEITFUL.

    Now, the amateur is speaking about social issues and he is purposely distracting because he has no clear answers and of course the attacks on Sarah Palin. She was the amateur and she was a dunce. She was attacked over and over. But the democrats followed the course and never respect her who had no terrorist friends, who did have an executive position, who had credentials. Obama was nothing more than a community organizer with some “law degree”.

    The problem for Obama and the compliant media is that the economic news is so bad that their old trick of focusing on social issues, which few people really care about, isn’t working. When you can’t find a job, worrying about whether Billy marries Bob is pretty far down on your priority list.

    Don’t get me wrong; there are people who care passionately about social issues. They see both gay marriage and free birth control as fundamental civil or human rights. There just aren’t that many of them. Obama’s campaign needs to find a way to talk to the 99% of us who are worried about the economy and our children’s future.

    Even messianic politicians ignore the voters at their peril.

    iow: stop looking into his past and ignore the
    damage he’s done and continues to do in the
    present.. he’s just a naughty bully boy.. /s/

    besides, nothing to worry about, Hillary is still waiting to answer that
    3am phone call (which is why i did not have sex with that woman).. 😉

    What was his first clue…..

  • Patty

    How can a community organizer with cover ups by media, law professor and do nothing senator become president.


    Black panthers with clubs at voting place, Mickey Mouse voting 20 to 30 times. Dead people voting, now how does this work. You tell me. No voter ID’s Holder is against this.

    Chicago thuggery and media attacks Sarah, her baby, her clothes, her answers, her entire family by Comedians and radical left. You’re called a racist if you don’t vote for Obama.

    Our nation is waking up and I do believe Romney will take it in a landslide. And there is no love loss between Clinton and Obama. For that matter when family and faith aren’t in either of their lives do you really believe what either one says is worthy of a second thought. I don’t.

    This is merely a replay of what happened during the 2008 primary campaign when Hillary’s “inevitability” was being threatened by Barry.

    they knew, but had other ideas..

    Tarek Fatah & Clare Lopez

    [Today, in the White House, there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama’s policy. One is Rashad Hassan of Indian origin, who is the American ambassador to the 52-nation organization of Islamic countries. Dahlia Mujahid who writes his speech, who comes from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Just day before yesterday, another woman, an academic, was appointed in that circle. This is happening while we sit silent, and I say that as a liberal democrat, as someone who worked and campaigned for Barrack Obama.]

    [Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S. security policy – explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez. Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world – with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran – is directing the Obama Administration’s policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.]

    btw, Obama was no law professor..

    Granted – This indictment is coming from ex-President ‘I-did-not-have-sex-with-that-young-woman’ Clinton.

    However, it does confirm a Natural fact that there is indeed only one thing lower than a snake. And the snake has just identified it (hm).
