Audio: Amateur Author Ed Klein: Clinton and Obama Have “nothing but Mutual Contempt for Each Other”

Hannity’s radio show today featured some interesting dish from former NYTs Magazine Editor, Ed Klein, the author of the explosive new book about Obama; The Amateur.

The book gets its title from the words Bill Clinton uttered when he was  trying to encourage Hillary to take on Obama in the Democratic primary of 2012:

Obama doesn’t know how to be president. He doesn’t know how the world works. He’s incompetent. He’s…he’s…Barack Obama’s an amateur.

I’ve always suspected that Bill Clinton despised Obama, so I’m always aghast when I see  him give interviews propping him up, or even starring in campaign ads for him. It makes them look like BFFs, and I wonder what the hell is going on. Why would you do that for someone you hate?  Klein has a very simple answer for that.

Clinton says there is no loyalty in politics, but he’s been pretty loyal to Obama this year, for someone who hates him.

Hat tip: Smitty, of the Other McCain, who was listening to Hannity in the car.

  2. While I too believe that Clinton can’t stand Obama, the author of this book doesn’t have the best reputation as a “reporter”. The book seems interesting though. I will read it in part at least. Won’t buy it, but will check it out at the bookstore when it comes out this week.


  3. Don’t you remember what Bill Clinton said about Obama the day of the Dem national convention? Oh yeah, the media did its best to suppress that. Google it…

    Speaking of which though, how is it that no one at the time remarked that Obama had, with the exception of his wife, exactly ZERO friends from his past speaking for him at that convention?
