Did Hillary just offer Obama a bribe in front of the entire world?

| February 1, 2016

Clinton campaign events are known for being highly scripted and at least some questions from Hillary’s audiences most certainly are plants, providing the candidate a setup to respond in such a way as to make her look like a really nice, downhome person or really on top of a particular subject. Such was the situation recently when a questioner at a Hillary Q&A seemingly admitted that he had been given his softball question for the frontrunner about which former president she most admired. Such situations are not new for Hillary with charges of planted questions arising in all of her past and current campaigns.

With that in mind, one has to be very suspicious of the recent question asked of Hillary about whether she would consider appointing Obama to the Supreme Court if she becomes president. We all know Hillary is a less than skilled public speaker so the feigned surprise she shows at the question and her prepared response are far from genuine:

“Wow, what a great idea. No one has ever suggested that to me, I love that, wow. He may have a few other things to do but I tell you that’s a great idea.”

Sorry, Hill, while your acting skills just aren’t up to carrying that off as being a spontaneous occurrence, that’s only part of the problem because I’m sure I wasn’t the only American watching that arranged exchange whose initial response was, “Whoa, did I just hear the Democrat frontrunner for president float a bribe to the sitting Democrat President of the United States right in front of the entire world?” Anyone watching could see the unspoken implication was, “Hey, Barack, make sure no indictment prevents my election and one of the most coveted, lifetime positions in the world can be yours when your presidential term is over, wink, wink.”

While that, folks, was even less subtle than dragging a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you do have to admire the way it was set up so as to shield Clinton from any political charge of attempted bribery or obstruction of justice by her opponents. Unsurprisingly it comes on the heels of Hillary’s recent proclivity to gushingly praise the Obama presidency whereas earlier she’d done everything possible to distance herself from that failed administration. Pundits mull that changing position as being an attempt to stay ahead of her uber-liberal opponent, Bernie Sanders. Cynics like me see it as a naked attempt to stay ahead of an obviously justified indictment from the Obama Justice Department. Whether or not that indictment ultimately happens while Obama is in office is clearly freighted with such enormous political weight that crudely dangled bribes for a cushy sinecure aren’t likely to affect it.

Besides, Hillary, Supreme Court Justices probably don’t get enough time on the links to appeal to Barack Obama; plus they are based in Washington, D.C. not Oahu. Nice try though; at least we know you Clinton’s are still dragging those hundred dollar bills, so to speak.

    Is there anyone here who believes that our current Republican-majority Senate would block such an appointment?

  2. Pinto Nag says:

    Did anyone seriously believe Obama was just going to fade away at the end of his term? We don’t have that kind of luck.

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    Oh, there’s one little thing missing in this. Bodaprez isn’t even interested enough in his own ‘legend’ to pay attention to the lack of money for his presidential library. Only a few weeks ago, there was an indication that his only interest lies in ditching work and running off to Hawaii as fast as he can. I don’t think he cares enough to stick around WDC to be Da Judge.

    • QM1 says:

      Seeing as how he spends so much time at the Golf courses now, I don’t see why he wouldn’t try a combination of the two after leaving the White House.

      He can still keep advocating for policies destructive to the American people close to DC, and still find plenty of time to spend at his plush multi-million dollar pad in Hawaii.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

      He has the attention span of a gnat, so the SCOTUS would be a distraction to him and his golf game. But, I don’t see him just going away… he’d be the head of some SJW/community organizing group(s) and still be the media’s mancrush for years… we’ll still see him try to shoot hoops or three putt on some rich-kids golf course.

      Here’s a scenario that I saw someone post: 1. Shillery get enough candidates in the primaries to be the Donks nominee.
      2. Bodaprez lets the DOJ go ahead and indite Shillery and her gang for the security issue.
      3. Bodaprez tries to play “healer” and presents to the DNC and nation the option of Slow Joe and Fauxahauntas as a “one term” fix for the mess and to “unify the party” – opens the door for Fauxahauntas as POTUS.

      What do you think?

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        I think that’s as scary as a large steaming pile of monkress left by a coyote on my front lawn.

      • Instinct says:

        Nope, Bodaprez and his ego will become Sec General at the UN.

        It appeals to his anti-American streak as well as his “healing the world” bullshit.

    • Stacy0311 says:

      Bodaprez’s presidential library can written on the portashitter walls of Bagram with a Sharpie.
      It will probably smell better than any “official” library he might eventually open

  4. IDC SARC says:

    Nothing like keeping the foxes in the henhouse.

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    I’m going to drop this in here, as an indicator of what people are really beginning to think of the democraps in general.


    March 2015: Rahmbo’s approval rating: 52%
    January 2016: approval rating now 27%

    I think the ‘glamour’ of it all has gone beyond wearing thin at all levels.

    • MrFace says:

      I think Rahmbos approval rating is based solely on SJW’s call to action for his supposed “turning a blind eye to” the murder of someone in color in Chi-Town. I don’t believe that to be the picture(rating across the board for Blue Voters) as a whole; unfortunately. The democratic voters of now will not give up the “right” to free cellphones, free “welfare” money, et. al., et. seq.

      This will be a very consequential election, unfortunately I think the masses have given up too much and have been awarded too much to stray from a certain ideology.

    It’s no secret that Hildabeast and the Glorious Leader hate eachother. Hildabeast is, of course, one of the most political animals (lower beast though she may be) seen in recent memory, but it makes you wonder if this is pure politics or real desperation. I lean towards the latter, as Hildabeast is nothing if not a vindictive cunt.

  7. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Bribe or no bribe, the thought of the adjunct guest lecturer of Constitutional Law– the guy who, as president, thinks he can legislate through regulation, the guy who, as president, assumed the power to declare a law unconstitutional, the guy who said that he will do what Congress won’t because he has a pen and phone– sends shivers down my spine.

  8. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Yeah, well, I omitted the part about the Clown-in-Chief being placed on the Supreme Court, but most of you read that in already.

  9. gitarcarver says:

    According to the White House, Obama is not interested:

    But speaking to reporters Thursday, Earnest threw cold water on the idea, suggesting that the former constitutional lawyer might want to explore a broader range of pursuits once he steps down from office in January 2017.

    “My guess is that his aspirations for his post-presidency extend beyond a Supreme Court appointment,” Earnest said. “I think as a constitutional lawyer that the president… would have plenty of things and plenty of ideas for how he would do a job like that. But I think his preferences for how he wants to spend his time after he leaves the White House would lie in areas that would give him the opportunity to handle a wider range of issues than just those issues that come before the court.”


    • Ex-PH2 says:

      See? Golf score has to get down closer to par. Hoops have to be more accurate. And then there’s that whole biking thing – maybe taking the training wheels off the bicycle.

  10. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “I think as a constitutional lawyer that the president….” That right there is BULLSHIT. IN. TRIPLICATE.

  11. BoomerSooner_OU says:

    Hilary may have been trying to bribe Obama, but I don’t see it happening for him. I simply don’t think he’s interested. I rather think Michelle is going to try and pull the same thing Hilary did; become a Senator and then try for the White House. With Chicago the way it is, I could even see her going for Chicago Mayor just long enough to build her bona fides before trying for the Democrat ticket in 2016.

  12. RetiredNFO says:

    BHO surrendered his law license in Illinois for some unknown reason-no intrepid journalist has ever asked him why he gave up something he (allegedly) worked so hard to achieve.

    BTW, you don’t have to be a lawyer to be a member of the Supreme Court.

    Are there qualifications to be a Justice? Do you have to be a lawyer or attend law school to be a Supreme Court Justice?

    The Constitution does not specify qualifications for Justices such as age, education, profession, or native-born citizenship. A Justice does not have to be a lawyer or a law school graduate, but all Justices have been trained in the law. Many of the 18th and 19th century Justices studied law under a mentor because there were few law schools in the country.

    The last Justice to be appointed who did not attend any law school was James F. Byrnes (1941-1942). He did not graduate from high school and taught himself law, passing the bar at the age of 23.

    Robert H. Jackson (1941-1954). While Jackson did not attend an undergraduate college, he did study law at Albany Law School in New York. At the time of his graduation, Jackson was only twenty years old and one of the requirements for a law degree was that students must be twenty-one years old. Thus rather than a law degree, Jackson was awarded with a “diploma of graduation.” Twenty-nine years later, Albany Law School belatedly presented Jackson with a law degree noting his original graduating class of 1912.

    “Whoa, did I just hear the Democrat frontrunner for president float a bribe to the sitting Democrat President of the United States right in front of the entire world?”

    Being as Hillary has the moral rectitude of a two dolar ho in Subic Bay when the fleet was in, IMO that is entirely reasonable.

    I looked up Trailer Trash in Websters, and lo, there was a photo of Slick Willy and Hillary.

    • Instinct says:

      Hey, I’ve known a few of those two dollar ho’s and they have a hell of a lot more integrity that the Hilldebeast.

      At least they are honest about where their money comes from and what they do for it.

  14. Jarhead says:

    All of you make perfect sense in your opinions. Part of that may be due to age and sacrifices made. The one thing missing is the ignorance of the public at large. Who in their right mind would have re-elected a president who OBVIOUSLY lied about “Did not have sexual relations with that woman”? Further, who in their right mind would have re-elected Obammy………for OBVIOUS resons?

    • OldSoldier54 says:

      No argument from me.

      All one has to do is watch Watter’s World to understand how these things could be.

  15. MSG Eric says:

    Again this is Hillary doing whatever she wants because in her mind, no matter what she does there is nothing wrong with it. She has no moral compass, nor an ethical one.

    Her only ambition is power, then more power. She believes she is entitled to be President and deserves to be, no matter what she’s done to get there.

  16. Just An Old Dog says:

    The only thing I could say is Obama would be a better candidate than Bernath.
