*The mainstream media did its best to boost sales of Hillary’s new book “Hard Choices,” but the readers know best. After only one week, the book is starting to tank and has fallen out of Amazon.com’s top 10. Now the Dems are even GIVING it away:

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/democratic-party-giving-away-hillarys-hard-choices_795341.html

However - journalist Ed Klein is sure to have a hit on his hands because the reading public always prefers dirt to propaganda. His latest offering is titled “Blood Feud,” which “gets inside the dysfunctional, jealous relationship between Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama — and how it could explode in 2016.” Excerpts are being posted daily at nypost.com. Here are a few tidbits:

“Outwardly, they put on a show of unity — but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democrat Party, loathe each other.”

““I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign.”

“The feeling is mutual. Obama made excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary.”

“On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence. They’d usually open a bottle of Chardonnay, catch up on news about Sasha and Malia, and gossip about people who gave them heartburn.”

“Their favorite bête noire was Hillary Clinton, whom they nicknamed “Hildebeest,” after the menacing and shaggy-maned gnu that roams the Serengeti.”

And

“Lately, Bill Clinton has become convinced that Obama won’t endorse Hillary in 2016. During a gathering at Whitehaven, guests overheard Bill talking to his daughter Chelsea about whether the president would back Joe Biden.”

“Recently, I’ve been hearing a different scenario from state committeemen,” Clinton said. “They say he’s looking for a candidate who’s just like him. Someone relatively unknown. Someone with a fresh face.”

“He’s convinced himself he’s been a brilliant president, and wants to clone himself — to find his Mini-Me.”

“He’s hunting for someone to succeed him, and he believes the American people don’t want to vote for someone who’s been around for a long time. He thinks that your mother and I are what he calls ‘so 20th century.’ He’s looking for ¬another Barack Obama.”

See: http://nypost.com/2014/06/21/inside-the-jealous-feud-between-the-obamas-and-hildebeest-clintons/

And especially:

“By 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2012, when Hillary Clinton received a call from President Obama, she was one of the most thoroughly briefed officials in Washington on the unfolding disaster in Benghazi, Libya.”

“She knew that Ambassador Christopher Stevens and a communications operator were dead, and that the attackers had launched a well-coordinated mortar assault on the CIA annex, which would cost the lives of two more Americans.”

“She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obama’s voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al Qaeda on the run.”

“If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.”

“Hillary was stunned when she heard the president talk about the Benghazi attack,” one of her top legal advisers said in an interview. “Obama wanted her to say that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration triggered by an obscure video on the Internet that demeaned the Prophet Mohammed.”

“This adviser continued: “Hillary told Obama, ‘Mr. President, that story isn’t credible. Among other things, it ignores the fact that the attack occurred on 9/11.’ But the president was adamant. He said, ‘Hillary, I need you to put out a State Department release as soon as possible.’”

After her conversation with the president, Hillary called Bill Clinton, who was at his penthouse apartment in the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, and told him what Obama wanted her to do.

“I’m sick about it,” she said, according to the legal adviser, who was filled in on the conversation.

“That story won’t hold up,” Bill said. “I know,” Hillary said. “I told the president that.” “It’s an impossible story,” Bill said. “I can’t believe the president is claiming it wasn’t terrorism. Then again, maybe I can. It looks like Obama isn’t going to allow anyone to say that terrorism has occurred on his watch.”

Hillary’s legal adviser provided further detail: “During their phone call, Bill started playing with various doomsday scenarios, up to and including the idea that Hillary consider resigning as secretary of state over the issue. But both he and Hillary quickly agreed that resigning wasn’t a realistic option.

If her resignation hurt Obama’s chances of winning re-election, her fellow Democrats would never forgive her. Hillary was already thinking of running for president in 2016, and her political future, as well as Obama’s, hung in the balance.”

Obama had put Hillary in a corner, and she and Bill didn’t see a way out. And so, shortly after 10 o’clock on the night of September 11, she released an official statement that blamed the Benghazi attack on an “inflammatory (video) posted on the Internet.”

The Benghazi Deception was in full swing.”

*There’s been a whole lot of talk about how much “dissension” there is inside the GOP, but the Republicans apparently don’t have a monopoly in this area. Dem Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer – who is considering a 2016 presidential run – recently likened Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) to a prostitute. Said Schweitzer about Feinstein’s on-again, off-again “cozy” relationship with the CIA in a National Journal profile published last week:

““She was the woman who was standing under the streetlight with her dress pulled all the way up over her knees, and now she says, ‘I’m a nun’ when it comes to this spying!”

(P.S. In the National Journal profile, Schweitzer also called Southern men a “little effeminate.”)

*And let’s not forget the polls.

--Gallup’s latest has President Obama’s approval on immigration at 31% - “one of the lowest readings since 2010, when Gallup began polling on his handling of the issue. Meanwhile, two in three Americans (65%) disapprove of his handling of immigration.”

See: http://www.gallup.com/poll/171755/approval-obama-handling-immigration-falls.aspx

--The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll reveals that “the percentage of Americans approving of President Barack Obama’s handling of foreign policy issues has dropped to the lowest level of his presidency.”

“Just 37 percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, which is an all-time low in the survey, while 57 percent disapprove, an all-time high.

“Additionally, the public is evenly split on whether Obama is a competent manager of the federal bureaucracy. And a majority of respondents – 54 percent – believe the term-limited president is no longer able to lead the country.”

See: http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/nbc-wsj-poll-obamas-foreign-policy-rating-plummets-even-without-n133461

--And the folks at scaredmonkeys.com have summarized a three-day rolling Gallup poll average of President Obama’s job approval ratings from last week as follows:

“Obama’s Job Appoval Falls to 40% Approval and 55% Disapproval Amid Disasterous Domestic & Foreign Policy Failures and Scandals

The most recent Gallup 3-day rolling average of Barack Obama’s job approval numbers have him at a disastrous 40% approval and 55% disapproval, or -15%. Have the Obama failures in foreign and domestic policy final caught up with him? The US still has an anemic job recovery and now Americans are seeing the Middle East fall apart as ISIS takes more and more cities in Syria and now Iraq. Add the all too numerous scandals, including the recent Friday revelation that the IRS lost Lois Lerner’s emails, of the Obama administration and we have an Obama administration that is as toxic as ever. Let us not forget the VA scandal.

Look for Obama’s numbers to crater even more as the lost Lerner emails are looking way too much like the lost 18 1/2 minutes of the Nixon tapes.”

Seb- your old MSNBC has played out. You use that story for every debate. Facts don't lie and you weren't able to dispute any of the material I posted about the 2 million lost under the bush administration-you changed to the subject to viewer ratings (pivot).

I think it's also important to point out- the only people watching Fox-older white males.

"Your old MSNBC story about the channel being out"

"2 million emails lost under the bush Administration. "

"You changed the subject to viewer ratings. "

And the only ones succumbing to tabloid impulse buying are older white women checking out their groceries at Parker's Gas Stations. :)

PN: I'm glad to see you are finally reading something other than yours and Jimmy's blogs and comments. This MAY cause me to minimize my use of the MSNBC-outage story - but don't count on it.

Jimmy: People watching Fox? Who cares - I don't quote Fox but PN exclusively quotes MSNBC. Disconnect there for sure.

Meanwhile, the facts and the polls don't lie. For me, November 2014 and November 2016 can't get here fast enough.

sebekm commented on Monday, Jun 23, 2014 at 14:02 PM

....and Jimmy:

I do not apologize for being white.

I do not accept any blame or responsibility for any offenses - real or imagined - that my "white ancestors" may have committed against any "minority group."

I do not feel any obligation to "hate my race" in order to be included in today's politically correct, race-oriented popular culture.

I reject the notion that race has to be the ultimate reason for any differences in intellectual arguments between people of different political orientations - especially when those differences are between people of various races or ethnicities.

But I do believe (and embrace) the notion that as long as some people choose to make race an issue, it will always be an issue - and the race-baiters will stay in business.

"I think it's also important to point out- the only people watching Fox-older white males."

And it's important to point out that:

"MSNBC Led Fox by 1100% Among Black Primetime Demo Viewers in 2013."

See: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/msnbc-led-...

Wanna guess why? BECAUSE MSNBC IS THE MOUTHPIECE OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION - THAT'S WHY!

Watch the numbers in 2017 and beyond (if MSNBC is still on the air) when Obama is no longer dominating the national news. MSNBC will still be the on-air voice of the Democratic party, but if the President is white or Hispanic, those racial viewership demographics will almost certainly change - BY A LOT.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jun 23, 2014 at 16:43 PM

Sebe: "I do not apologize for being white."

Neither do I!!

Sebe: "I do not accept any blame or responsibility for any offenses - real or imagined - that my "white ancestors" may have committed against any "minority group."

Never said you should!!

Sebe: "I do not feel any obligation to "hate my race" in order to be included in today's politically correct, race-oriented popular culture."

Never thrust that 'obligation' in your direction.

Sebe: "I reject the notion that race has to be the ultimate reason for any differences in intellectual arguments between people of different political orientations - especially when those differences are between people of various races or ethnicities."

I feel the SAME way!!

Those comments, save for your last one, are examples of self-marginalization, my friend. They are COMMON within the Tea Party crowd. It fuels their 'angst.'

You are center-right, no?

sebekm commented on Thursday, Jun 26, 2014 at 15:55 PM

"Those comments, save for your last one, are examples of self-marginalization, my friend. They are COMMON within the Tea Party crowd. It fuels their 'angst.'"

I don't necessarily agree, but I suppose self-marginalization is better than self-aggrandizement, no?

And I don't mind being consistent with "the Tea Party crowd" in some respects. You may recall that two-thirds of ALL of the American people agree with their stated goals.

I do consider myself center-right, but sometimes politics makes for strange bedfellows. As you may also recall, in the early days (2009-2011) I often called for "reasonable doubt" in order to allow this President and his administration the leeway to follow through on policies which they felt would benefit the country. My feelings have changed over the past three years - based upon the direction Obama has taken this country - to where I suspect my general attitude toward this President and his administration is now fully consistent with those who are typically "marginalized" by the left and the media as being on the "far right" of the political spectrum. While I don't think we're at impeachment YET - I do support Boehner's proposed lawsuit against Obama, if for no other reason than I've always admired voices that cry in the wilderness.

Daily votes to repeal ObamaCare were folly; suing Obama (on the heels of today's SCOTUS ruling - see my new blog) is the absolute correct thing for the GOP to do.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Jun 26, 2014 at 16:41 PM

Hi Sebe. I believe I first saw the idea to sue BHO in an article written by Cal Thomas (syndicated columnist in the main stream media, as you know)a while back. Not sure where Boehner got the idea but maybe got it from Cal. Not that it matters. A law suit is a law suit.

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Jun 27, 2014 at 07:41 AM

Wait a minute..."self-aggrandizement.."??! What pray tell is it about myself that I am exaggerating about...? I assure you, I consider myself just another bozo on the bus. I do not suffer in any way from delusionary self importance. That particular characteristic belongs to our friend Tot. Not moi.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Jul 02, 2014 at 12:56 PM

Jimmy: I wasn't taking a shot at you with the "self-aggrandizement" reference - it was an attempt at self-deprecation.
