Clinton: Because, he is like me…

28 Aug

President Clinton endorsed Barak Obama and suggested that those (like he and wife were a couple of months ago) who say that Obama does not have enough experience to be Commander in Chief, are wrong.

Clinton’s message: My opponents, when I was running for President, were criticizing me for being too inexperienced to be Commander in Chief; and just like I turned out to be a great C.i.C. so will Obama. I endorse Obama because he will be like me, great!

Bill Clinton forgot that it was not about him, Bill Clinton forgot about Somalia, Bill Clinton forgot about the USS Cole, and about the numerous misses at getting Osama bin Laden, etc., etc. — does the country want another Bill Clinton? Does the country want Barak obama? 

Like Bill Clinton, and perhaps with an edge, Barak Obama is a great speaker and motivator, but also like Bill Clinton, Obama is brash, inexperienced, charismatic, and an arrogant young man. Does the country want a real black-American (in this case a Mulatto) President after the “blackest white man” (as Clinton was dabbed by much of the Afro-American community) as its President?

    I found this blog (and the other blog that I assume is also by you) because I have a persistent google search for “dangoor”. This is the last time I’m going to bother reading.

    Doesn’t this: “Does the country want a real black-American (in this case a Mulatto) President after the “blackest white man” (as Clinton was dabbed by much of the Afro-American community) as its President?” strike you (or anyone else) as racist?

    The question is completely irrelevant. It’s like asking “Does this country want another White Christian as President after Bush?” The question just makes no sense unless you are judging someone by their race or religion.

    Clinton’s presidency certainly had its share of issues, but the time in which he was president was generally a prosperous and peaceful one (whether through Clinton’s actions or not is a different subject).

    McCain’s stated policies are just too close to the appallingly bad job of the current administration to make him a viable candidate.

    After an email exchange, I now read the article in a different light (and I believe the author sees my point as well).

    Coming from the perspective of Bill Clinton’s presidency not being so great, Clinton’s endorsement and drawing of parallels with Obama really don’t do Obama any favors.

    The article is not saying “we don’t want Obama because he’s like Bill Clinton” so much as it’s saying that Bill Clinton is full of himself, and in that light there’s no racist intent in the final question.

    Human languages are both wonderful and annoying in their imprecision.

    Obama is too much like Bill Clinton. And Obama would no doubt turn and look the other way when Americans would be murdered by terrorists. Just like Clinton did when our son murdered, and he then refused to let the FBI investigate the Yemeni officers and Yemeni officials involved in the attack.
    Thats a Fact. Subsequently the FBI and the CIA missed all the clues that were just wiating to be picked for the pending 9/11 attack. Our government does not like to talk about that at all. Its our hope that we the families will get a congressional hearing that we have been fighting for, for 7 long years. It would be open season on Americans again.
