Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 22, 2014

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.

This type of pathetic jostling couldn't happen to a more deservedly petty and self serving couple of couples. Bill is correct about the zero who should never have been POTUS if you consider qualifications. The zero was qualified (possibly) to be a community organizer. However, the Clintons being the people destroying and vindictive couple they are; they are finally getting zinged by a narcissist extraordinaire.

Good link CORKY. the book sound s like pure pig snot.
couple of quotes from CORKYS link.

1. Klein's last book, which was self-published, suggests Obama was born on foreign soil and is a practicing Mulism. Klein's 2010 work The Obama Identity: A Novel (Or Is It?), co-authored with a former Republican congressman, is a compendium of Obama conspiracy theories. He had to self-publish the book.


4. Klein has a history of publishing demonstrably false allegations about Obama as fact. In a 2010 entry in The Huffington Post, Klein detailed President Obama's "humiliation" of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu, claiming that sources told him of Obama leaving during a meeting with Netenyahu to have dinner with Michelle and their two daughters. One phone call would have revealed that to be impossible, since Michelle, Sasha and Malia were all in New York City at the time.

6. Even conservative critics view Klein as disreputable. Kathleen Parker, writing for the Tribune's network of newspapers, described Klein's 2005 book as "prurient tabloiding," while New York Post columnist John Podhoretz said it was "one of the most sordid volumes I've ever waded through." Peggy Noonan's Wall Street Journal review said it was "poorly written, poorly thought, poorly sourced and full of the kind of loaded language that is appropriate to a polemic but not an investigative work."

The nation's top book reviews have all panned Klein and his work. The Boston Globe called him "an author devoid of credibility," the New York Times described him as "smarmy and sleazy," the Los Angeles Times called his work "bio-porn," and the Tucson Citizen referred to it as "the literary equivalent of a backed up-septic tank." (It got a grade of "F").

Nevertheless, The Washington Post and Fox are reporting Klein's latest allegations as if they were news.
