Bill Clinton is claiming that when Hillary 'wins' the White House, he will be sent on a world tour with George W. Bush's father to announce that the US is "open for business and cooperation again".
So voting for Hillary Clinton will launch the original Bush The Destroyer back onto the world stage?
The fake attacks by Hillary Clinton on President George W. Bush are clearly part of the theatre that they hope will keep the Bush-Clinton families at the top of America's political and power elite. They're not enemies. It's a con, a jape, an odious scam.
Hillary has refused to back ending the Iraq War and is opposed to President Bush's impeachment. She also backs President Bush on his railing against Iran, and has refused to rule out opposing air strikes on Iran if it comes to that. She is just as militarily-minded as President Bush, and will keep bushing the shared Bush-Clinton agenda for as long as she stays in the White House. If she even gets there. And her husband sure ain't helping.
That Bill Clinton would announce this tour, as part of the celebrations of another Bush-Clinton victory, and as though it were a good thing, as though it would help to win his wife votes, is just plain bizarre.
Considering how deeply unpopular the former President Bush was, and how staggeringly unpopular his son now is, most Americans would rather have acid poured in their eyes than to see any Bush representing their country on the world stage. Which is why Jeb Bush has decided to stay away from running for the White House for another decade or so.
Truly, truly weird :
Former President Bill Clinton said Monday that the first thing his wife Hillary will do when she reaches the White House is dispatch him and his predecessor, President George H.W. Bush, on an around-the-world mission to repair the damage done to America's reputation by the current president - Bush's son, George W. Bush.This would be Hillary's Number One Priority on becoming president?
"Well, the first thing she intends to do, because you can do this without passing a bill, the first thing she intends to do is to send me and former President Bush and a number of other people around the world to tell them that America is open for business and cooperation again," Clinton said in response to a question from a supporter about what his wife's "number one priority" would be as president.
What planet are these people from?
UPDATE : To the surprise of absolutely no-one, except perhaps Bill Clinton, Pappa Bush has now nixed the idea of hitting the road with Clinton to badmouth his presidential son's legacy.
