The rats are jumping back on: Podesta joins Obama’s team

The ship of state is taking on water, so instead of casting off extra weight and baggage, Obama has radioed for help to bring on even more extra weight and baggage.

According to Phillip Rucker of the Washington Post,

John D. Podesta, who was chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and is one of the Democratic Party’s most experienced strategists, is joining the White House to help President Obama salvage what has become a difficult second term.

Podesta is the guy who helped guide then-President Bill Clinton through the tumultuous waters of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Now he’s being summoned to be the “clean-up hitter” for the Obama administration. What I find absolutely appalling is that with all the lies, deceit, failures, and abject incompetence, not a doggone member of Obama’s cabinet has been fired, but instead they’re hiring more people – that’s sure to improve those job numbers.

Rucker also says:

Obama also has recruited Phil Schiliro, the legislative affairs director during the president’s first term and a veteran congressional operative, to return to the White House and spearhead health-care issues.

Obviously the Clinton political machine recognizes the high level of toxicity the Obama administration is infusing into the Democrat party. They certainly realize if Hillary decides to run, having the baggage and memory of the sinking of the USS Obama will not bode well for her chances. The sad thing is this move is all about politics, not policy.

This obvious act of desperation is about style, image and not about protecting the livelihood of the hard working American — just about saving the legacy of Barack Obama and the party of the jackass. John Podesta is just another progressive socialist hack who was President of the Center for American Progress, a rather oxymoronic title considering how progressive policies retard economic growth.

Podesta has been informally advising Hillary Clinton and was helping Priorities USA Action, a super PAC that supported Obama’s reelection and would most likely back Clinton if she runs in 2016. In other words, Podesta is the advance guard whose mission it is to clear the way for the “heiress-apparent.” Well, hate to tell ya ol’ Johnny boy, but we sure look forward to spoiling your plans.

All about cover up and spin, spin, spin. Business as usual.

I don’t think all the kings horses and all the kings men can put this debacle back together again!

Hillary is an old woman; she’d be 70 years old by the time she took office IF she managed to find enough people ignorant or apathetic about her corrupt and scandalous past.

She doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance.

with the liberal medias help, the devil would come in first place. its the media, who let this go on and on. and the ignorants. “free cell phone”, or “self defense is not an option”. like saying, new york, or chicago, for the future model of the american streets…

Simple, as soon as the country totally runs out of $$$$ there simply will not be $$$$ for hand outs. See what happens in Europe. The socialistic system is teared down and I know it first hand. Remember the iron lady what she said about running out of other peoples money?

I would tend to agree but I hope Americans prove us both wrong. People SEEM to be waking up, but perhaps that’s only because a precious few of the media are finally starting to push back at this regime’s lies and corruption.

Yea I thought people were waking up to Obama in 2998 and 2012 and look what happened. Truth is the left has succeeded in creating critical mass with the dependent class, and I doubt you will wake them up. I’ve always been an optimist since Reagan but I am afraid this country has has a short memory and has really lost it’s way. Too many young people who have ceased being taught who we are and dependent people who will never vote out their handouts.

Podesta is just as evil as his boss George Soros . Progressive hacks. Whatever he does to spin Barack Hussein Obama’s image will be a LIE. The devil is anxiously awaiting Podestra ‘s arrival

Col. West, there is nothing wrong with Obama and the cartel around him that a really good old fashioned mass hanging wouldn’t solve!

What I’m going to say, I want you to know I don’t mean to offend you in any way. I understand your feelings but a lot of us out here are trying to make a huge difference in 2014. This type of speech will only chase off people instead of having them stick with us. It just makes us look like a bunch of racists and radicals. Please don’t take that wrong. I’ve been posting over and over again on different postings of Mr. West that in 2014 we need to give Washington a message. The message being,,,,sorry Democrat Senators,,,,you… Read more »

A good old fashioned mass hanging refers to “hanging them out to dry in the sunlight of truth” Guess you don’t speak southern.

Jim, no I don’t speak southern but thank you for explaining that. I’m a northerner living up here in the snowy cold.

this kind of inflammatory speech just plays into the racist label, although I am sympathetic to your general sentiment. How about mass rejection of the left at the polls?

Were not that gullible and they don’t need to be wasting our tax payer money on such nonsense.

Long ago we went from folks hanging out in the lobby wanting a favor. To giving them an office in the white house.

I believe it’s a little too late. We Americans have had enough. A lot of you mentioned the media. We the public have the power and we don’t use it. There’s a couple of far to the left media who only lies anyway that probably won’t change BUT the others we can get to. We’ve been sending letters to Washington and we’ve been calling our Representatives. Now it’s time to hit the media. Hold them responsible for reporting the news and not the lies. We the public can hit them where it hurts. Their ratings and their sponsors. You find… Read more »

People who vote for Democrats could care less how incompetent or criminal their Democrat candidate is as long as Unions get to keep extorting from their employers and welfare parasites can stay on the Uncle Sugar tit. Democrats are corrupt voters who elect corrupt politicians.
