Flashback:- Bill Clinton on Obama: 'A Few Years Ago, This Guy Would Have Been Carrying Our Bags'...

jt 2012/09/03 02:58:30

Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillay Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: "A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags."


This anecdote is revealed in a New Yorker article on the relationship between Bill Clinton and Obama:



Tim Russert told me that, according to his sources, Bill Clinton, in an effort to secure an endorsement for Hillary from Ted Kennedy, said to Kennedy, “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”


Clinton is giving a keynote address at the Democratic convention this week in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    Yes the democrats love a racist. The party of the KKK had KKK member senator Byrd. A member of the party for fifty years and loved him.Yet he was a enormous racist who even spewed the N epithet regularly. And of course we had the democrat leaders begging democrats to fight their natural racist yernings and vote for Obama. They know who what they are.

    Here we go again, taking things out of context. Bill Clinton was merely commenting on how far our county has come.

    This doesn't really surprise me, but I wouldn't say I care, either. Politics is about lies, hate and greed. I wish that wasn't the case, but currently it is. It didn't use to be. Maybe if both sides can find some people with integrity, we can return to governing instead of stealing...

    Well, I don't know if Clinton ever actually said that.. or if Barry would ever carry anyones bags.. I doubt it.. all I know is that hopefully after this election, Obama will disappear from sight.. Go back to Kenya or Indonesia or one of those places he has passports from.. just go away so we can forget him like a very, very bad dream!

    Obama never carried anybody's bags unless he got something out of it. Why do people keep posting this question? Do you care about anything has been Clinton says? He's as bad as Obama, except he had a lot more class. They're both the products of a lifetime of training by handlers who are behind the NWO. Clinton even more than Obama. Comparing them is like comparing AIDS to some other fatal virus.
