President Barack Obama has vowed to throw his complete support behind Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren if she chooses to run for president in 2016, writes Ed Klein in the New York Post.
Obama has ordered his political svengali, Valerie Jarrett, to convince Warren, who currently has two years of experience as an elected official, to run against the Clinton machine in 2016.
There have been secret meetings, Klein says.
The reasons that Obama can’t stand Clinton (either one of them) are both personal and political, the bombshell-loving reporter explains.
Personally, the president doesn’t like Bill Clinton because of some of the things the former president said back in 2008.
Politically, Obama fears that Hillary Clinton would reverse several of his policies. He thinks she is out of touch with poor and middle-class Americans. (RELATED: The Obamas Have Spent At Least $44,351,777.12 In Taxpayer Cash On Travel)
“Barack, Michelle, and Valerie have been talking about Elizabeth Warren for quite some time,” an Obama administration source allegedly told Klein. “Valerie has told Warren that Obama is prepared to throw a great deal of money and organizational support behind her.”
Both Barack and Michelle Obama believe Warren shares their leftist ideology.
“She is a committed progressive who, like Obama, wants to transform America into a European-style democratic-socialist state,” Klein quotes his deep-throat source as saying.
There’s also the fact that Obama could see a little of himself in Warren. Both were law professors at fancypants law schools. Both would have had very little political experience before they ran for president. Also, like Obama, Warren is expected to invigorate progressives and idealists in the Democratic Party.
For her part, Warren has remained cagily noncommittal about her 2016 plans.
A person Klein calls a Democratic operative called the whole story bogus.
“It’s all bullshit,” the unnamed operative told Klein. “The media is creating a Hillary Clinton-Elizabeth Warren rivalry to hype the storyline. If Warren dared to challenge Hillary, women all over America would never forgive her. She’d lose all her credibility.”
However, Klein says, Bill Clinton believes Obama is actively searching for “his Mini-Me.”
In recent weeks, Klein has been laying down what are either the greatest political-gossip scoops in American history or some of the finest tall tales in tall-tale-telling history.
In late June, he released a book, Blood Feud, claiming – among much else – that Hillary Clinton spewed a drunken rant during a dinner with a bunch of fellow Wellesley College graduates in which she called Obama “a joke” who can’t govern and has “allowed his hatred for his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did.”
“The thing with Obama is that he can’t be bothered and there is no hand on the tiller half the time. That’s the story of the Obama presidency. No hand on the fucking tiller,” the former first lady said, according to Klein, as reported in the Daily Mail.
“You can’t trust the motherfucker,” she also allegedly added.
