White House defends Sanders against Clinton claim that Sanders has attacked POTUS. Oops.



At a White House press conference, Press Secretary Josh Earnest defended Bernie Sanders against the Clinton campaign claim that Sanders had continuously attacked President Obama.

More lies confirmed for team Hillary. I guess these don’t count when she said she’d never lied to the American people just two days ago?? Hmmm.

...knowing full well that Pres. Obama appointed her to one of the most important positions in his administration and almost certainly supports her in this campaign.

Bernie supporters will just have to deal with the fact that their candidate has not been as supportive of this president as many Democrats would expect. And it's not just the one statement that Bernie claimed represented the totality of his criticism.

28. Had Obama had a primary challenge

And needed to tack left to secure his renomination - a course correction if you will - we probably wouldn't have TPP just over the horizon. We would still have a President Obama, just no TPP. You can be supportive of the President and still want him to be reminded of the policies the Democratic Party cares about if he lost his way.

30. Both candidates have had their differences with Obama

as posted elsewhere by noiretextatique

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/12/world/middleeast/attacking-obama-policy-hillary-clinton-exposes-different-worldviews.html?_r=0

For the 19 months since Hillary Rodham Clinton departed as President Obama’s secretary of state, she and Mr. Obama, and their staffs, have labored to preserve a veneer of unity over how they worked together and how they view the world.

On Sunday, the veneer shattered — the victim of Mrs. Clinton’s remarkably blunt interview with Jeffrey Goldberg, a writer for The Atlantic, in which she criticized not just Mr. Obama’s refusal to aid the rebels in Syria, but his shorthand description of his entire foreign policy.

Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle,” Mrs. Clinton said, referring to the line that Mr. Obama has used with aides and reporters to describe his reluctance to inject the United States into messy foreign conflicts.


Just another glass house attack by Hillary.

I don't believe that level of personal animus is held
by these top 5 Dem politicians. Their teams are in it to win it, though, and it is clear that Clinton's campaign operatives are doing some less than savory things.

And on a personal note, would you kindly stop with the Bernie Bros?

52. Obama knows what it's like to be on the receiving end of HRC's lie-based campaign

and I imagine they have empathy for Bernie, who has to deal with her. Especially when she's in meltdown-implosion mode.

Axelrod has said negative things too.

I think every once in a while the mask slips off. I think this whole Obama-Hillary love fest is a HRC-campaign created facade designed to serve Hillary.
