Obama: Hillary's money flap will fade

By Bernie Becker - 06/29/14 11:03 AM EDT

President Obama said on Sunday that he didn’t think the flap over Hillary Clinton’s wealth and speaking fees would be an issue for very long.

“I think that Hillary has been to this rodeo a bunch of times,” Obama said on ABC’s “This Week.”

Clinton, long rumored to be running for president in 2016, has prompted criticism for saying that she and former President Clinton were "dead broke" when he left office, and for appearance fees like the $225,000 she’s set to receive from a Nevada university.

“As soon as you jump back into the spotlight in a more explicitly political way, you’re going to be flyspecked like this,” Obama said. “She’s accustomed to it. Over time, I don’t think it’s going to make a big difference.”

But conservative commentator Bill Kristol, also appearing on “This Week,” said Obama’s answer did Clinton no favors – especially the part about her having been to this rodeo a fair amount.

“Is that who Democrats want to nominate in  2016?” Kristol asked. “Don’t they want someone with new ideas, a fresh vision for the country?”

He may say it, but I am sure he doesn't mean it.  Hillary's flap is a good distraction from all the doodoo he is in at the moment.
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
