Bill Clinton voiced his abiding anger at the media’s coverage of him and his wife in Durham, N.H., today, and suggested that media bias will force Clinton to go negative on Barack Obama.
He also expressed his frustration that his wife is perceived by voters as divisive through, he said, no fault of her own.
Also, I’m not buying this…
“And the fact of the matter is, independent voters think youâ€™re polarizing if someone else attacks you, even if that someone is Rush Limbaugh, even if youâ€™ve been totally exonerated of every single charge ever leveled against you, which Hillary was â€” and some people forgot to tell you about that,” he said, jabbing again at the press.
Sorry, Hillary is polarizing because a lot of people just don’t like her. You can’t blame all of that on partisan pundits. She decided to take a very active, public role in his presidency and it just didn’t get handled well by her or anybody else in his administration. And while I do understand what he’s saying, and I do think the Clintons suffered a lot of unfair attacks, she hasn’t been able to rise above people’s perceptions and lay claim to the mantle that Bill thinks she deserves.
So he can blame the media all he wants, but the media didn’t run her campaign in Iowa. She kept on attacking Barack through surrogates and it backfired on her. That’s why she has to go negative now…because she went negative in the first place. And Barack is now using her own ammo against her, especially the kindergarten attack.
Time to come up with some new material Bill. Bringing up the 90s won’t help your wife.
