Hillary Clinton has been publicly criticizing her old boss Obama for months. She’s blasted Obama’s foreign policy, from Iran, to Israel, to Syria, and his hesitancy to neutralize the murderous terror group ISIS in Iraq.
And now, both Hillary and Barry are “hugging it out.”
But most in the media aren’t buying it.
The Weekly Standard’s senior writer Chris Hayes called Hillary backtracking on her criticisms of Obama’s foreign policy “phony all the way around.”
The National Journal’s Ron Fournier said not only is Hillary practicing “bad politics now, but she’s looking inauthentic doing it.”
And Charles Krauthammer said, “this is such a blatant display of Clinton inauthenticity it’s breathtaking.”
Hillary “did finally appear to say something that she believes, and then of course retracted it,” Krauthammer added.
Trying to answer how Hillary Clinton had made such a huge public relations mess, Hayes said, “look I don’t think she’s that good at politics. I think she’s an overrated public official. People are saying ‘she’s unpolished. She hasn’t been working her political muscles.'”
“I think that’s nonsense,” Hayes continued, “I don’t think she was that good in 2008, and I don’t think she’s that good now.”
Obama and Clinton are hugging it out, and “all this is happening,” Krauthammer said “while Putin is on the march, ISIS is on the march, Kurds and others are perishing on mountain tops.” And Obama is “concerned over a line from Hillary, and he has to respond.”
“You would hope he would respond to some of the crises,” Krauthammer concludes.
