Let's look at the link address: inside edition . com -AUTHOR-claims-obama-and-clinton-families-have-ongoing-feud

Inside Edition?!?!?!?

Remember that Democratic National Convention Speech that Bill Clinton gave introducing Barack Obama?

"In Tampa the Republican argument against Obama's re-election was pretty simple, pretty snappy: 'We left him a total mess, he hasn't finished cleaning it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in.' I like the argument for President Obama's re-election a whole lot better. He inherited a deeply damaged economy, put a floor under the crash, began the long hard road to recovery and laid the foundation for a modern, more well-balanced economy."

Yup. The Big Dog just HATES Barack Obama.

Not.

Or you can listen to Ed Klein try to peddle his book. What else has Ed Klein claimed about the Clintons?

Ed Klein ceased to be believable well before 2005 when he alleged that Chelsea Clinton was conceived during a vacation where Bill Clinton raped his wife. He wrote it in his book and then walked back his lie later on Hannity.

Yeah, Klein is that kind of a toad. Useless except to his publishers who know the right wing echo chamber will buy any anti-Clinton bullbleep. All about the money!

All: this is the summer of the anti-Clinton books. There's at least three out or coming out. Strike while the iron is hot! Make the big bucks!

Truth? Bah! No need! Make it up! Bill personally killed Vince Foster, dontchaknow?!?!?

I'm no fan of HRC, but why do these whackos make this stuff up? Maybe it's the Clintons doing a false flag to discredit the discreditors? If you have to fabricate lies to beat her, what's wrong with this picture?

Klein's books are so bad and full of it that even Fox "News" says he's full of it.

I think it's Clintonian 3-D chess to discredit the discreditors. Brilliant folk, those two.





KILMEADE: "Now, who is his source? Chelsea? I mean, how would you possibly get in between them?" - Fox News, Fox & Friends, 6/23/14


also from from Rush Limbaugh, who laughed at the unsourced quotes "some of the quotes strike me as odd, in the sense that I don't know people who speak this way" and dismissing them as sounding like "grade school chatter."


May 13 - Fox Business' Lou Dobbs Tonight: contributor Doug Schoen said Klein "was not credible" & WSJ's James Taranto: Klein's claims were "too good to be true."




and on 5/13/12, on VAN SUSTEREN: "All right. Who is this author?"

ultra conservative Washington Examiner's BYRON YORK: "Edward Klein ...... has written a number of kind of deep inside tell-all books. His last book in 2005 about Hillary Clinton was extremely controversial, claimed that she was a lesbian and all sorts of kind of OUT THERE stuff. It was denounced as a whole pack of lies by everybody involved."

VAN SUSTEREN: "It was widely denounced." --- Fox News, On The Record

Find the obituary for the Colorado GOP here: Web Link if viewing after todays edition of the Aurora Colorado paper, find here: Web Link

One wonders, how far can the CALIF GOP from seeing their own obituary? After all, CALIF GOP Chair Jim Brulte called Californian Republicans bankrupt after the 2012 election, and they are but essentially meaningless in CALIF politics...

"When Brulte took over the party, he called his job "more like a bankruptcy workout." Read more here: Web Link

there ya go, boys and girls: that's the state of the republican party these days -- lunatics that post that trash in an anonymous forum.

Fox, Beck and Limbaugh egg on these posters, who can't even step back a moment to reflect on the insanity of the trash they post.

Seriously?

That's why, if she chooses to run, Hillary will win, by a larger margin than Obama spanked Romney (lost by over 5 million votes, Mr 47% got, yup, 47% of the vote!)

Don't think so?

Then name ONE CANDIDATE who can beat her!

Name one!

Don't post more of your slime. Tell us who is better than Hillary, and can beat her.

Anyone?

Bueller?

Ya got nuthin'.... just a dialogue of the (one-sided, insane) deaf.

In the 1980s. Klein was the Editor-in-Chief of the New York Times Magazine, where I was working at one of my first jobs as a fact checker. Before that, he was Editor- in -Chief of Newsweek. When I was at the Times, he hired me to help him to do research for a military book he was writing. He was a STICKLER for the truth and facts, and very professional.

He is not a hack.

Ed Klein may not have been a hack back in the 80's. Unfortunately, a lot can happen in thirty years.

As the poster above alluded to, in Klein's 2005 book "The Truth About Hillary" Klein claimed that Chelsea was the product of Clinton rape - Klein claimed he had a single, anonymous source.

Klein later recanted the fabrication on Sean Hannity's June 22, 2005 radio show.

He is no longer taken seriously. There's video of Megyn Kelly laughing about him and his book on Fox two weeks ago. When you lose Megyn, it's over.
