In fact. it was so busy that it left my head spinning.
Or, it could be nausea.
The Washington Post reports that
President Obama offered his formal endorsement of Hillary Clinton with a video Thursday and plans to campaign with the former secretary of state in Wisconsin next week, efforts aimed at speeding the Democratic Party’s unification around its presumed presidential nominee.
“I know how hard this job can be, that’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it,” Obama says in the video. “In fact I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office. She’s got the courage, the compassion and the heart to get this job done.”
The swift endorsement came after the president met with Sen. Bernie Sanders at the White House earlier Thursday and the senator from Vermont indicated he is preparing to exit the Democratic nominating battle.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will offer her own endorsement later Thursday on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, a person close to Warren confirmed on condition of anonymity. The only Democratic woman in the Senate who had not yet endorsed Clinton, Warren’s support is expected to help bring Sanders supporters and the left generally in line behind the presumptive nominee.
Sanders has been under pressure to stand down and help unify the party after a long and contentious contest with Clinton for the nomination.
One of Obama’s tasks will be to try to rally those who have backed Sanders behind Clinton’s candidacy.
The short video provides a preview of the central theme Obama is likely to hammer away at for months to come: that Clinton’s experience, toughness and values make her more qualified to lead the country than a real estate magnate who’s never held public office.“And from the decision we made in the Situation Room to get bin Laden, to our pursuit of diplomacy in capitals around the world, I have seen her judgment, I’ve seen her toughness,” the president said. “I’ve seen her commitment to our values up close.”
Clinton and Obama will campaign together in Green Bay, Wis., her campaign confirmed.
In an interview with Bloomberg News, timed to correspond with the video’s release, Clinton welcomed the Obama endorsement.
“It just means so much to have a strong, substantive endorsement from the president. Obviously I value his opinion a great deal personally,” Clinton said. “It’s just such a treat because over the years of knowing each other, we’ve gone from fierce competitors to true friends.”
Sanders told reporters after his White House meeting he is looking forward to working with Clinton to defeat Trump in the fall.
“Needless to say, I’m going to do everything in my power, and I’m going to work as hard as I can, to make sure that Donald Trump does not become president of the United States,” he told reporters, as his wife, Jane, stood behind him.
Trump, meanwhile, offered his thoughts in a tweet: “Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!”
Sanders said he still plans to compete in Tuesday’s final Democratic primary in the District, but he added that “in the near future” he hopes to meet with Clinton — who this week clinched the Democratic nomination — to talk about ways they can work together.
His comments suggested that Sanders is preparing to exit the long and grueling presidential race so long as leading Democrats make a genuine effort to incorporate his policy ideas into their broader agenda.
The hour-long meeting with Obama came on a busy day for Sanders in Washington, where he also met on Capitol Hill with Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.); Reid has sought to play the role of peace broker at the end of a contentious nominating contest between Sanders and Clinton.
An afternoon meeting with Vice President Biden was also added to Sanders’s schedule for Thursday. The two are set to meet at the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory, said Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs.
“He is seeking out the counsel of people he admires and respects,” Briggs said of Sanders.
Increasingly, Sanders’s aim seems to be using the leverage that he and his millions of loyal followers now have to ensure that his campaign agenda — anchored around issues of income and wealth inequality — has a central place in the Democratic Party’s platform and general-election strategy.
Meanwhile, the plot sickens…per Fox News:
White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Thursday called the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton a “criminal investigation.”
Fox News reporter James Rosen said to Earnest, “So when a career prosecutor or an FBI agent working on the Clinton investigation hears this President speak openly about how he wants Hillary Clinton to succeed him, you don’t think that that career prosecutor or that FBI agent takes that as some indication as to how the president wants to see this case resolved?”
I have spent a lot of time the last couple of years writing about the Washingtonian Status Quo and the tone-deaf nature of the REplublican Establishment, or “Vichy” Republicans, as I dubbed them, for their predilection to sell out and acquiesce to the political schemes of the other side of the Political Aisle, the members of the Democratic Party.
Now, unless the Socialist Senator from Vermont decides to launch an ill-fated Third Party Campaign for the Presidency, Bernie Sanders’ Supporters, including all of those mush-minded millennials, who thought that Uncle Bernie was going to become President and give them all “free stuff”, are about to “Feel the Bern” alright…in the same region as Jack did when he jumped over the candle stick.
Depending on whether the Far Left Advocates, who now control the Democratic Party, will decide to completely drop their mask dyring Hillary’s Presidential Campaign and proudly proclaim their Marxism or not, Sanders, the “Doc Emmett Brown look-alike, could be asked to be Hillary’s Vice-Presidential Candidate, in order to attempt to secure the much-needed vote of the easily-led millennials.
That would solve one problem that the Democrat Hieracrchy faces.
However, they face an even bigger one:
Their Presidential Candidate is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.
Obama’s endorsement will not whitewash this fact.
Neither will his blocking the FBI from seeking an indictment of Hillary Clinton, is that is his plan, which I am certain that it is.
The Democrats are calling the Upcoming Nomination and Campaign of Hillary Clinton for the Presidency of the United States, a “Seminal Moment in American History”. All of this adulation is not because she is all that and a bag of chips. They are lauding her candidacy, simply because she is a woman.
Well, it’s a Seminal Moment in American History, alright. But, not for that reason. Other women, as you can read all over Facebook, have run for the Office of President before.
This moment is unique in American History because a Sitting President has endorsed a Former Secretary of State, who is facing CRIMINAL CHARGES for her ability to safeguard America’s Foreign Policy Top Secret Plans and Strategies, which contained acts which quite probably endangered American lives.
To summarize, you have a Machiavellian Sitting President, who has deliberately split this nation along Racial, Moral, Ethical, and Socio-Economic Lines, endorsing as his potential successor a woman, whose biggest professional accomplishment was the mishandling of Top Secret Foreign Policy E-mails, and who might choose a full-blown Marxist as her Vice-Presidential Candidate.
Doesn’t this give you the “warm fuzzies”?
It does me. Although, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, it is probably nausea.
All of these Democratic Political Machinations should not surprise you.
After all, when it comes to the Sitting President and his Former Secretary of State, it has been proven time and time again that
One lies and the other swears to it.
Now, please excuse, I have to go hurl.
Until He Comes,
