Obviously that’s not actually what happened, but Bubba saying Romney’s definitely qualified to be president and had a “sterling business career” probably made Team Obama wince:

Just for a bonus, Steny Hoyer agreed with Clinton and said that private equity is an important ingredient for a healthy economy:

Obama running against not just Romney, but also capitalism, is doomed to fail — in no small part because even lefties depend on campaign donations from capitalists. That as much as anything has a lot to do with so many Dems trying to distance themselves from Obama on this point. Pretty soon even Obama will be distancing himself from Obama. Just wait. The war on Romney’s business and jobs background has been an epic fail.

    Why do I have the feeling that this will not be the only time Clinton 'innocently' undermines Obama's campaign….

    When you've lost Bubba…

    Why..? Did I 'say' something? Oops goll darn it!

    While I certainly think Mitt could've handled this better from the git go in terms of explaining… how he made his money, the truth is finally rising to the top.

    What Progbama will never be able to understand is, hedge funds are at the top of the business food chain. Sure, the margins are fantastic, but so are the risks. Here's an ongoing List of the guys that didn't make it. 117 since just 2006.

    Here's the scene:

    An explorer happens on a group of monkeys in the jungle, and he opens his pack and finds a pheromone grenade. He pulls the pin and tosses it in the center of the group, that curiously doesn't scatter, The explorer then throws a football in the center of the curious, now amorous simians.

    Let the imagery to the similes to the Democrats begin!

    “…probably made Team Obama wince:”

    That has to include all the MSM outlets. They should start turning on him soon as well.

  6. Doug on June 1st, 2012 8:05 pm

    Maybe some on the left are starting to take notice because, though they gave Obama a pass for trying to destroy the country, they're freaking now that he's on the verge of destroying the Democratic Party.

  7. clu seatoe on June 1st, 2012 8:21 pm

    Good point.

    It is important for one to keep his priorities straight.

    More football buggery…

    Since there is no love lost between the Clintons and Ozero, I would say Slick Willy is in full mode of getting rid of Ozero with these statements. Ozero has the media on his side but Slick Willy has lots of staunch, star gazed, supporters in his camp and Ozero is losing lots of supporters. The strategy may be to get rid of Ozero and set their sights on 2016. The Clintons are not going to go away quietly any time soon. I think Slick Willy wants his "Cankles" in play in 2016 so they can do the "two for one" show again.

    Is mutiny on the U.S.S. OBAMA just ahead at the Dimocrat convention? The rats are becoming increasingly nervous.

  11. ChapBix on June 1st, 2012 9:37 pm

    Slick Willie is sabotaging Obama so Romney wins and then Team Clinton go after Romney in 2016?

  12. OK_Loyalist on June 1st, 2012 10:06 pm

    Make no mistake, Clinton wants to remain the only Democrat president to hold two consecutive terms since Truman.

  13. Granny55 on June 1st, 2012 10:34 pm

    The Clintons want the WH back in 2016.

  14. Granny55 on June 1st, 2012 10:36 pm

    And he is pissed that he was upstaged by a half black President when he was declared the US first black president. Slick Willy does not like to be dissed.

  15. SignPainterGuy on June 1st, 2012 10:41 pm

    A few have jumped ship already !

  16. SignPainterGuy on June 1st, 2012 11:00 pm

    "Obama running against …… capitalism …. " Even the great socialists, Lenin, Stalin, etc., understood that socialism works only for a while (until you run out of "other people`s money") and then only AFTER CAPITALISM has FIRST built up the economy. THEN, you must allow capitalism a chance to rebuild the economy. Even they knew socialism only works for a little while ! "Works" in this case is a very subjective term !

  17. SignPainterGuy on June 1st, 2012 11:01 pm

    Doug, is SOCIALISM a word that cues the site administrator`s appetite ?

  18. SignPainterGuy on June 2nd, 2012 1:13 am

    I think I can deal with having to beat the Clintons in `16; it`s the prospect of Shrillary stepping in this year to replace the deposed Oblammo that causes me some worry ! Or replacing BiteMe as VP ….

    No, I don`t see it very likely, but some judges are preparing to hear cases against Obama`s eligibility soon; it is possible he won`t be allowed on some ballots. Not so likely, but possible !

    That is, unless Zero`s protective Secret Service agents get to the judges first !

  19. jeffythequick on June 2nd, 2012 1:26 am

    The next one will be June 4, with Bon Jovi there: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2012/05/bill_clin

    Obama: Whoa, we're half way there… Livin' on a prayer…
    Clinton: Never say goodbye… never ever say goodbye!

  20. jeffythequick on June 2nd, 2012 1:43 am

    Are any the judges moonlighting as prostitutes?

    Oh, that's not what you meant… never mind.

  21. SignPainterGuy on June 2nd, 2012 1:52 am

    I only know that one of the judges ruled according to the law in the FL Bush-Gore kerfuffle, even though he leans left ! I fully expect him to be "schooled" on how he should rule in the upcoming "event" !

  22. SignPainterGuy on June 2nd, 2012 1:54 am

    Doug, can you please find my 2 comments that got eaten ?! PLEASE !?

  23. jeffythequick on June 2nd, 2012 2:07 am

    Nom nom nom…

  24. SignPainterGuy on June 2nd, 2012 2:52 am

    Hey, don`t blame the kittehs or the puppies for eating them ! ;-) It was the site administrator; it has a real taste for my comments, especially when the word S-oc-iA-li-sm is in them. Odd, huh ?

  25. jeffythequick on June 2nd, 2012 3:36 am

    I've been thinking about this for a while, and you know what this year reminds me of?

    1992: Bush-41 couldn't get anything right. From barfing on the Japanese prime minister to not starting the campaign until after Labor Day. It just wasn't firing on any of the cylinders for him that year.

    This year seems to be the same thing for Obama. From the hecklers drowning out Axelrod to none of the "wars on…" getting traction. The Reagan team pretty much left Bush, and so is the Clinton team leaving Obama (the parallel is in popularity within their respective parties, not in ethics of the men)

    I'm pretty much looking at this as a done deal. Obama is done. He won't believe it until January 20, 2015, or never. Look at what he did after November 2010. Kept right on going…

  26. SignPainterGuy on June 2nd, 2012 3:48 am

    "Getting a late start", yeah, I`ve found the best way to make sure I`m late, is to give myself plenty of time !

  27. Granny55 on June 2nd, 2012 8:45 am

    Bush 41 may have gotten a late start on campaigning but there is no comparison to Ozero. All he has done is campaigned since he announced he was running in 07.

  28. jeffythequick on June 2nd, 2012 4:33 pm

    Granny55, The Bush late start was not a comparison of their getting out of the starting gate, but of their campaign strategies. Starting on Labor Day 1992 (probably both of them started that day…) and their flops in strategy is what I was trying to explain.

    It's just that in '92 and this year, they were/are both tone deaf, and surprisingly, Romney is campaigning like he wants the job, especially with the Solymdra and Axelrod events this week.

    These are pros at playing both sides of the field at the same time. Look for mutiny at the Democrat convention later this year.
