Former President Bill Clinton is feeling some kind of way that President Obama is allegedly throwing his allegiance Elizabeth Warren, a chief rival of Hillary Clinton, for the 2016 presidential nomination, prompting Bill Clinton to bitterly complain to others that the president is deliberately sabotaging her campaign before it even begins.
Clinton was reportedly “overheard telling high ranking members of the Florida Democratic caucus that Obama was sabotaging Hillary’s chances to become the next President,” at a Democratic fundraiser in Florida recently, according to an inside source.
“Clinton pointed out that Obama hasn’t directed Secretary of State John Kerry to attempt to broker a cease fire between Israel and Palestine. Any hope of having peace in the Middle East is dependent on a long term deal between Israel and Palestine.”
Moreover, “Bill pointed out how Obama has refused to go to the border in Texeas to see the immigration humanitarian crisis firsthand, choosing instead to attend several fundraisers in the Lone Star state,” the source revealed to radaronline.com.
The thinking of Clinton, according to the insiders, is that Obama is allowing these two highly-inflammatory issues to fester and expand and makes it harder for the next Democratic prospect to the White House because the political landscape is a mess under the current Democratic president.
“Bill has tried to give advice to Obama in the past, but it falls on deaf ears,” said the source. “In Bill’s opinion, Obama is just riding out his term, and only cared about getting healthcare passed. It’s going to make it very hard for Hillary to have any chances of winning, because Obama has made such a mess of things.”
There has long been friction between the Clintons and the Obamas that date back to 2008 when an upstart junior Senator from Illinois (Obama) stormed from the back of the pack to defeat Hillary Clinton and win the presidential nominee, which most people believed was Clinton’s birthright.
“Clinton is privately told (Florida gubernatorial candidate) Charlie Crist at the event that he wouldn’t be any endorsing anyone until after the primary,” an insider revealed. “He also warned Charlie that his close relationship with Barack could hurt his chances, because he is political poison.”
“It was very apparent to everyone in Charlie camp that Bill had a major problem with his close ties to Obama,” the source continued, explaining that “A majority of Charlie’s campaign staff are Obama acolytes, including former campaign manager Jim Messina.”
“Hillary (Clinton) will not ask Obama to campaign for her once she decides to run,” the source reveals. “In fact, Bill has been strategizing on ways Hillary can distance herself from the Obama administration. The Clintons will have no problem throwing Obama under the bus if that is what it will take to win.”
