A lot of people are asking whether Bill Clinton is trying to sabatoge Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. The “sterling” business record talk for Mitt Romney, the dissent on the Bush tax cuts, the bad blood from 2008. My question: Why won’t Slick Willie go away?
Few ask what seems to be the more obvious question: Why is Clinton such a ubiquitous presence in Obama’s reelection campaign in the first place? When Team Obama decided to produce an ad touting the president’s successful hit on Osama bin Laden—spiking the football, some might say—they rolled out Clinton as the narrator. Obama and Clinton held a joint fundraiser in New York City modestly billed as “An Evening with Two Presidents.”
One lucky donor got to win a pair of tickets to the dual fundraiser, with a hotel room and airfare thrown in. Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, who is apparently not the same person who sang with Kenny Loggins, enthused, “Meeting two presidents at the same time? Now, that’s almost ridiculously cool.”
Clinton’s role in Obama’s reelection campaign is unprecedented for a former president. Clinton is helping Obama attract fat cats while Obama helps Clinton stay in the spotlight.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
