Bill Clinton: Obama "Incompetent," "Amateur"

And Bill encouraged Hillary to run against Obama in 2012!

Edward Klein, a former editor of The New York Times Magazine and Newsweek (hardly a right winger) is coming out with a new Obama biography titled "The Amateur" (Barnes and Noble). The title was based on comments from a secret meeting former President Bill Clinton held in the ex-president’s home office in Chappaqua last August with Friends of Bill and Hillary. The New York Post has the story:
Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims, “The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama. ...  
The withering criticism is incredible, given the fact that Bill Clinton is actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election. But according to the book, Bill Clinton unloaded on Obama and pressed Hillary to run against her boss during a gathering in the ex-president’s home office in Chappaqua last August that included longtime friends, Klein said. “The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,”Bill said.  
Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama and had been consulted more frequently by his presidential successor, George W. Bush. Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”
Of course the Clinton camp immediately issued a statement denying that any of this was said. Yet I can't help recall Bill Clinton's denial "I never had sexual relations with that woman...Ms. Lewinsky!"

I wondered where all those rumors came from suggesting Hillary was going to quit as Secretary of State and run against Obama. Now we know. And Hillary must be kicking herself for saying no after seeing how a convict in a Texas prison got 41% of the vote in the West Virginia primary against Obama last week.
