2008 Bill Clinton on Senator Obama: A few years ago he would have been carrying our bags

Ouch. This has got to sting a little:

By the Democrat standard this is definitely racist and I’m sure the MSM will be all over this during the DNC this week.

    Now Obama makes the taxpayer pay to carry all the Clinton baggage instead.

  • I’ve always said that democrats are exactly everything that they accuse others to be.

    • WI4Walker

      They are masters at projecting their own beliefs and doings onto others.

    • warpmine

      Sure but that’s only because it’s 100% true.

  • GuessWhoFan

    It must gnaw at Willy Jeff to the core to have to pretend to support this stooge.

    • bobemakk

      They are still afraid of what Bill Clinton will say at the DNC. I hope he slams Obama, not that Billy “the womanizer,” is or was any better. He was an embarassment to this country and was impeached for his lying. Why can’t they impeach Obama, he lies more than the Clintons.

  • Hornet414fixer

    I can’t stand any Clintons but he was right. Billy boy was coming down on his MK Ultra days and finally said something constructive:-)

  • justplainbob

    As I commented elsewhere…there the hell is Matthews and company when you need them ? Surely they will condemn this statement…won’t they ? I mean, they will…WON’T THEY ?

    • rich wojcik

      how to pi$$ off Matthews or any liberal:
      YES! We don’t like FuBar Ack because he is 50% black!!! 😉
      And what are YOU going to do about it???!!???
      Call us racists?? …………………. we call you, rightfully, a total idiot, educated beyond your questionable intelligence….

    • Patriot077

      I don’t remember the comment getting much attention when I first heard it 2 or 3 years ago. I was shocked that it didn’t set off a firestorm.

      • crosshr

        comments like this between two racist from a racist gang is a very OK. besides, I can’t see any conservative in their right mind even talk this way.

        On the other hand, this slip up from the democrat also proves beyond Obama’s claim that the Right is racist.Who’s talking now, baggage carrier boy !

  • Spartan4Palin

    Not anything will be said. Why? Because it came from the ‘first’ black president. The hyprocrisy is repugnent among Dems. And while it may disgusting for us to watch, as they wiggle around the issue. It is utterly depressing to watch as they manipulate those that won’t see it?



  • knew that Clinton said something that Kennedy took as racist and the reason that Kennedy endorsed Obama. now we just know what it was.

    • Wisewoman2

      Being a former democrat and Hillary supporter I heard some rumors but was never able to fully understand what the so called racist Bill said. Well I now understand why Kennedy was endorsing Hillary then was “being neutral, then endorsed Obama. When Kennedy did that it sunk Hillary’s chances because Kennedy was powerful among the liberals. He sandbagged Hillary’s chances after Bill made the comment. Now I see why Bill is doing everything in his power to help elect Obama. You see if my candidate Romney wins, he will probably get a second term and Hillary will be too old to run. That is why Bill is helping Obama. He does not care about the country he wants Hillary to run in 2016. Screw you Bill, you a$$hole.

  • Joe


    I guess Hillary will be “pi$$ed” at Willy now !

  • Nahhhhh. Clinton’s a democrat and they are nevah raaaaaaaaaaacist. I’m sure Slick Willy just meant that Obama would have been a *hotel organizer* a few years back. Yep, thats the ticket 🙂

  • sDee

    I’ve used and heard that expression a lot and never ever considered it bigoted just a context of a power class or other hierarchy. I doubt Clinton was talking like a bigot then, even though he is a bigot 🙂

    Regardless…. he could have said far far worse and it still will not get legs with the propaganda media.

  • z b

    I think this is racist according to everyone standard

    • Patriot077

      It wouldn’t be if he weren’t black. Like sDee said, that expression is used a lot – especially for someone who hasn’t yet paid their dues or is still wet behind the ears. Which definitely describes Obama in the political world.

  • KenInMontana

    Billy Jeff is one of those “Good Ol’Boys” that the stereotype of the Southren Redneck was built around. “And y’all know thar jus ain’t no gittin roun that thar”.

    Now before any of our resident “Southerners” get all up in arms, I am a born Southerner and the lion’s share of my family either still resides in, or hails from the South.


      You know, I think you are right about Clinton here.

  • bayway48

    Regardless how anyone judges or characterizes the remark, it is the statement itself, made by Bill Clinton. In these words, it shows his disdain and hatred for Obama. For me, his hyped up speech on Wednesday at the DNC has zero crediability, especially if it is full of grandiose praises and endorsements of the Obama Presidency.

    • kong1967

      Especially since he has continuously (supposedly) slipped and made comments that show he hates Obama.

  • hbnolikeee

    Bill Clinton a key speaker for the DNC Convention says it all. The keynote speaker is an impeached president, disbarred for 8 years from practicing law, caught having oral sex in the oval office and lying under oath to Congress along with a half dozen other women filed complaints against him.

    This is their emblem of what they are and stand for. An adultering, lying, impeached disbarred former president. We should embrace their WISE choice of Party Symbol. Do you see his respect and honor towards women as well?

    This is the moral leader. Everyone need underline this and take note. Check out their “hero”. Put this db next to Ronald Reagan.

    Perhaps Mitt should spend some money across the country THIS WEEK, playing some videos of Reagan on health care and socialism.

    Take that with who Frank Davis, Van Jones, Ayres and the rest and roll that into an AD to repeat throughout this land. Like a modern day Paul Revere we need to play such Ads and point all this out.

    • kong1967

      Great reminder. This makes Akin’s comment seem minor, doesn’t it? The left demonizes all conservatives over Akin but they ignore and still praise jerks like Clinton and Kennedy….who drove into the lake then walked off and let his passenger woman die because he didn’t want to be caught with a DUI (I believe it was 9 hours before they found her).

      Liberals are pathetic, and their outrage for minor conservative blunders is faker than a $4 bill.

      • hbnolikeee

        It’s really amazing. He is their symbol. Mitt needs to put it out again as part of an AD campaign. Show all the voters who their heros look up to.

        I mean then theirs Ted Kennedy and John Edwards. These are their icons. Let’s hoist them all up the flag pole and show the voters.

        • kong1967

          I think that would be great, but I don’t think it would matter. I saw videos of OWS idiots praising the same communist idols.

          • hbnolikeee

            If you engage though, you will win. Too many battles, perhaps, but these are irrefutable facts and if you keep the focus of discussion on target you win.

            • kong1967

              I don’t know if I have that much stamina, lol.

  • kong1967

    Nah, that’s not racist. RS pointing it out is. Their brains are in their butts.

    • warpmine

      …and wedged tightly.

      • kong1967


  • poptoy1949

    I would not let him carry my bags. Either one of them. PERIOD.

  • eyewatcher1960

    Democrats are EXACTLY what they accuse others to be. I knew Clinton in the Mountains of Arkansas with Fulbright and the KKK was there!! Now you fill in the blanks.

  • p m

    Nice to see FNN bringing out the old stuff to hit them with. It’s usually the libtards doing that to our guys. As for Clinton’s remark, well, he’s a democrat – that’s the way they think, isn’t it?

    • hbnolikeee

      Well if all the Duh Bumbler has is his pointing to the Bubba in the past and ridiculing the GOP saying they want to return to the past, what do you expect?

      Remember, the past is good when it’s a democrat but any GOP polices that worked in the past are slammed as returning to the past and are bad. Huh?

      • p m

        Right – that mental disease known as liberalism (but really communism) strikes again.

  • aZjimbo

    Two that will burn in hell together.

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    This seems a very weak source for a Fox story to me (though I am absolutely the opposite of being a supporter of Clinton). Isn’t it the definition of rank hearsay? To report on what someone alleges that someone who passed away (Tim Russert) alleged that Bill Clinton said this to Ted Kennedy, who also has passed away? Who is Fox going to fact check this with? The known liar, Bill Clinton, whom the alleged comment reportedly came from? With all the scandal and outrage of Obama’s administration’s actions they could report on, why did they even bother with this?

    • warpmine

      Remember the slogan “We report, you decide.”

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        Seems more like tabloid fare to me than news reporting.

  • Sober_Thinking

    And then Biden said to a predominantly black audience: “They’re gonna put ya’ll back in chains.”

    What can these racist phonies possibly say to wake up the 80+% of blacks in America that will still vote for the most destructive President in U.S. history? What’s it gonna take?

    The hypocrisy is waste deep. And the media is foolishly asleep at the wheel…

    The liberals and Democrats always call ofther people what they themselves in fact really are. Biden really meant that if Obama is re-elected, that the Democrats would keep blacks in chains (financially at least), as well as all of America.

    It must REALLY REALLY REALLY stick in Clinton’s craw to have to endorse this monster.

  • mediaaccess1

    Yea, but thanks to the Republican party, that changed.

  • Don’t fall so quickly. Could be a play to take the focus off of Obama and onto Clinton.

  • This never should have gotten out. It’s all Bush’s fault!

    • WordsFailMe

      Mrs. WFM certainly enjoyed the chair photos you shared! Thank you. ABC.

      Yo know, I think the Obama campaign is about to re-run the 2008 campaign. They beat the Bush legacy ponce, maybe they can do it again! Obama is a typical blowhard bully. He’s just another black panther with a microphone. He’ll show his power and speed by performing outstanding feats of shadow boxing for the crowds. I expect that any day, he’ll pull out a teddy bear and say, “If this was George Bush, this is what I’d do to him.”

      Funny how Obama often attacks the the Republican VP candidate in stead of facing Romney squarely on any single issue. The Obamanoid’s cowardice will be clearly demonstrated in the coming weeks.

    • WordsFailMe

      Mrs. WFM has become a real whiz at finding interesting stuff. Here’s an article that I wish could get wider circulation.


      • That IS interesting, and not surprising. You know where you CAN circulate this don’t you! 😉 We miss you, but understand your buisy! Tell Mrs. Words, I still like her style, and she and you are more than welcome for the fun we all had yesterday! 😀

    • WordsFailMe

      OMG Here the latest one Mrs W found-Enjoy!

  • LiberalBoycotter

    What is so funny is that if the Democommies would have gotten their way, he would have actually still been doing that. They all pretend to love the Blacks, but never forget the KKK, with all that hanging and burning of crosses, and hiding under white sheets in the dead of night!!!!!

  • Jay

    Wasn’t there a “he’d be serving us coffee” remark by Clinton? Did he make this gaffe twice or what?

    • I definitely remember the “serving coffee” remark being discussed by Rush during the 2008 primaries.

  • Sorry, Clinton’s statement is not true. America has come a long way on this matter and this constant repeating that it hasn’t doesn’t make it true. Lying is the new truth! Not so much! There are still people who can distinguish the truth from a lie!

  • rich wojcik

    Yes, Bill Jeff Blight: a few years ago…and for next years from now…..

  • Why do black voters tolerate racist Democrats such as Bill Clinton and Joe Biden?

    I have no idea. Habit?

    William Jefferson Blythe Clinton is scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at the Democrat National Convention on Wednesday. It’s doubtful America’s scandalized 42nd president will mention his impeachment or his Oral Office encounters with Monica Lewinsky any more than he will comment on his observation to the late Ted Kennedy that ”A few years ago, this guy [Obama] would have been carrying our bags.”

    Say what?

    That racist observation might seem like a Republican smear of Clinton but it’s far from it. It appeared in a 2008 article by Ryan Lizza in the arch-liberal NewYorker magazine outlining the Clinton camp’s vicious attacks on Obama during the dirty 2008 Democrat primary campaign.

    Fortuitously in time for the Charlotte convention, Lizza clarified Clinton’s words of just four years ago by telling CNN’s Soledad O’Brien that “I don’t think it’s racial. I don’t think Bill Clinton has a racist bone in his body.”

    Of course not ! Bull Connor and Elijah Muhammad never had a a racist in their bodies either so how could ”America’s first black president,” according to Toni Morrison, (a designation later retracted), a semi-progressive Democrat who was supported by the vast majority of African-American voters in 1992 and 1996, cast such a nasty racist aspersion on Obama?

    For that matter, how could then-Democrat senator Joe Biden describe Obama in 2008 as “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy” and still be picked by Obama as his running mate?

    Weren’t Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson articulate, bright, clean, nice-looking African-Americans when they ran for president, Mr. Biden?

    Isn’t it as racist to single out Obama as a somehow special African-American simply because he can speak well, is smart, bathes regularly, and doesn’t scare dogs and small kids by his looks as racist as Bubba saying Obama would be an obsequious hotel or airport baggage-handler “a few years ago”?

    Maybe during those relatively few years a sea change occurred in the racist thinking of the Democrat Party during which Dems refined their racism by electing an African-American as president rather than regarding Obama as exceptional since he’s smart, clean, etc. and the equivalent of one of those guys at airports who extort payments for labors a well-trained chimp could perform. . .
