Hillary’s George Bush is Obama

Hillary’s George Bush is Obama

Hillary Clinton Criticizes Obama’s Foreign Policy and Calls Syria a “Failure”

If Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016, will she pull an Obama, and blame everything on her predecessor, the way Obama still blames Bush for everything?

Even if it’s a President from her own party?  And an administration she participated in? And a Foreign Policy she helped develop?

From recent interviews, looks like Hillary has found her George Bush, and it’s Obama.

A new report from FOX News seems to indicate that when it comes to foreign policy, she she’ll be running against Obama’s legacy:

Clinton critical of Obama foreign policy, says ‘failure’ to act in Syria created vacuum for jihad

Hillary Clinton, the front-runner among potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidates, is sharply distancing herself from President Obama’s foreign policy, particularly in Syria, as Americans appear to continue losing confidence in his handling of key international affairs.

Clinton, who as secretary of state was Obama’s top diplomat, suggested during an in-depth interview with The Atlantic magazine that the president’s foreign-policy mantra of “don’t do stupid stuff” lacked sufficient depth.

“Great nations need organizing principles,” she said in the roughly 8,000-word interview released Sunday. “And ‘don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.”

The interview comes as Americans’ opinion of how Obama is handling crises in Israel, Ukraine, Syria, Iraq and elsewhere, continues to sink.

A Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll released Tuesday, three days before Obama ordered airstrikes and humanitarian airdrops in Syria, showed a record-high disapproval rating. Sixty percent of those polled disapprove of Obama’s foreign policy efforts, compared to 36 percent who approved.

The interview also could help or hurt the former first lady’s effort to burnish her own foreign policy credentials ahead of an official 2016 campaign.

The significance of Hillary’s position wasn’t lost on Maggie Haberman of Politico:

Hillary Clinton takes on Obama

Hillary Clinton has taken her furthest and most public step away from President Barack Obama, describing his decision against helping build a “credible” force that could battle the Assad regime in Syria early on as a “failure.”

In an interview with The Atlantic, she also rejected the core of Obama’s self-described foreign policy doctrine and stood firmly with Israel in the Gaza conflict.

Hillary and Obama have gone to great lengths to make the public forget how bitter things were between them after the 2008 Democratic primary.

If Clinton is forced to run against Obama on other issues, it could open old wounds for the Democratic Party.

Thank you. I have been keep up with this for a while now, and this fits nicely.

I predicted Hillary would start this a long time ago, and more or less for my own amusment have been keep up with it.

If you get time check it out. It is almost creepy how she has followed my little timeline…

    I suspect that the Ready for Hillary crowd are tapping your connections and they know a good strategy when they see it. 🙂

Ol’ Walleyes Clinton…the BITCH of Benghazi…may try to open up some space between herself and Pres. ScamWOW.

It won’t work with me. For she will forever be joined at the hip with that lying SOS on the tarmac at Dover, lying in the faces of the families, using the caskets of the fallen as a prop, and the First Amendment as toilet paper.

The central tenet in this spiel is that the US ( & the west) has every right to arm & train & fund opposition groups to Assad . They are only questioning which ones were the best .

I have yet to see any argument that America’s interests were suddenly being threatened by & in Syria given that it has been the same since 1980 . ( they never had an interest) .

One rule for Me & one for Ye.

What — like Obama on his own actually made any foreign policy decisions? Like somehow the “rebels” against Assad are, uhm, like the helpful Muslim Brotherhood Clinton loves so much, or the not-terrorist Boko Haram? What kind of delusional is this?

Note the US contribution to the Iraqui internal politics re who should be PM . Us StateDept actually thinks it has the right to decide.

Willst They Nee’r learn?

Rather interesting considering Clinton helped architect the foreign policy she’s now criticizing. Does she expect us to forget she was Secretary of State?

STEP ONE in making sure Hillary is either not nominated or elected.

By calling out the policies she helped carry out, she is demonstrating herself to be even weaker than Obama since she had no influence over his stupid mistakes. Why did she not go public or just resign in protest?

Hillary is the poster girl for always wanting it both ways. She wants to be seen as tough, but hides behind her sex when attacked. She wanted the notch on her resume at State, but won’t take responsibility for her tenure. When documents subpoenaed over two years ago are found in her possession, she feigns ignorance.

The diehard leftists and racist blacks who form Obama’s core constituency will not forgive her apostasy here, and we should not allow her to run from her own record.

Do not use sex and Hillary in the same piece of prose. Please.

I actually laughed out loud when I heard this.

She’s pathetic.

Hillary was a lieutenant in Obama’s banana republic. As a ‘presidential’ candidate she will be running, like a hamster on its wheel, against herself.

The vast Left Brain conspiracy has seen her ability to accomplish nothing of value while running full speed around the world.

She knows people see Secretary of State as always enacting the president’s policies, which allowed her to follow what she supported anyway. No longer S of S, she now has to hide what she truly believes re: foreign policy.

The worst way to determine what she believes is through her words now that’s she’s out. The Clinton way is the same as the Obama way: lie your way in, lie your way out.

Since she was Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton must bear co-responsibility for the consequences of the polices she either spawned or supported, even for the consequences that ensued after she left office. But, the Clintons are, if nothing else, consummate politicians and now appear to have judged the moment is right for Hillary to leave the sinking ship of Obama. I look for more of that during the lame duck last two years of Obama. Hillary must and will run away from her record, she can’t run on it.

Get lots of pics of Mrs. Lamb Chop strolling on the beach with her bow-wow and Billy Bubba. Avert my eyes,’Yo. I mean this as an aged male sexist oinker.

People pay this shrill, lying b’yotch $250K for a freaking speech??!! Insane.
