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.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
