Clinton Advisor: “Obama Will Bow Out of Presidential Race”

A former President Clinton adviser says U.S. President Barack Obama will give in to pressure from Democrat leaders and bow out of the 2012 presidential race.

Clinton’s former campaign manager Dick Morris stated that the Democrats no longer have confidence in Obama’s leadership skills.

In an interview with conservative radio icon Sean Hannity, Morris said, “I asked a top Democratic strategist the other day and he thought that it was possible that, in January, Harry Reid comes to Obama and says, ‘Look you cost us control of the House last year, you’re going to cost us control of the Senate this year. For the good of the party you have to step aside’” said Morris.

it is “very possible” that President Obama might acquiesce to requests from the Democratic leadership in Congress and bow out of the 2012 race, leaving the door open for him to return sometime in the future.

    You should always have a credit union account. I have 8 checking & savings accounts spread out between 3 different banks. One I use mostly for purchasing and my paycheck. I use my credit union accounts for paying major bills and for any loans. And I have a 3rd bank I use for my CD’s & Money Markets.

    I spreads my money ALLLL the way out. Keep a regular bank account as well, but just get off of BofA and also get a credit union account too.

    So true Sass. Chase customers better keep there eyes open too. I went to a small credit union years ago. Its inconvient at times but I dont have to deal with the bs of big banks like BOA.

    ‘Look you cost us control of the House last year, you’re going to cost us control of the Senate this year. For the good of the party you have to step aside’” said Morris.

    —————————————————
    :nono: He wasn’t the cause of us losing control of the house last year.

    Take your pick:
    1. Blame us (not me personally) for not going out to vote (like everyone did in ’08) :shrug:
    2. Blame the republican party that pushed the tea party candidates :shrug:

    :newbie: <–Sign really says TEAM OBAMA

    **** Morris is a twisted lip fool. This is the idiot that called the President (Clinton) while he was in bed with a hooker to show he knew the President. This fool could not explain an egg from a carton. He is silly and no one really takes his advice anymore. He is a has been. He should have done like his other friend and committed suicide. He knows who I am talking about.

    Why blacks do not vote republican by and large

    From Wiki
    In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to the Republican Party strategy of winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti-African American racism among Southern white voters and appealing to states’ rights. Though the “Solid South” had been a longtime Democratic Party stronghold due to the Democratic Party’s defense of slavery prior to the American Civil War and segregation for a century thereafter, many white Southern Democrats stopped supporting the party following the African-American Civil Rights Movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation.

    The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon in the late 1960s and continued through the latter decades of the 20th century under presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush.[1] The strategy was successful in achieving its goals; it led to the electoral realignment of Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than 90 percent of black voters to the Democratic Party
