Over president quickly apologize for his remarks and tonight he was undermining President Obama.
That his second annual global initiative meeting mr.
Clinton also said this and all quote.
This year's meeting has demonstrated the important advances we can make when working together toward a shared prosperity -- What does Bill Clinton up to it.
All let's bring back her campaign insiders that -- -- -- on the book the -- -- -- you know I mean you work for the guy I -- I've never seen a former president ever apologize the way he did.
Immediately after I mean he literally said I'm very so -- said that.
Well I think what he was really trying to do was to move the party and indeed the Obama.
Campaign to the center.
To try to talk about the need for unity consensus.
And an approach that's frankly different from the one President Obama and his campaign -- -- We have a pat the president isn't going to the senator no in -- and the fact is that's why every week you see.
Bill Clinton off message and answer brought back to know I'm raking -- money informant with.
Because he and other Democrats are the voices and -- mothers saying this but I think for president bill.
Clinton he looks and says don't should get it I was a better president and mice.
You should follow my role of success -- more centrist Democratic Party and they're just taking the party off them all over the left.
When you know a congressman it was Dick -- sees the work.
Intimately for years and years -- Bill Clinton he said he now works for us but he said Bill Clinton.
Doesn't want Barack Obama -- it well you know we know a couple of things that a year ago in private he tried to get Hillary then to run.
In the primaries against -- -- which she said.
Loyalty I'm not gonna do it.
He I think there's a good argument to be made that he'd like Obama to fail.
And a Romney to win beaten body and using Hillary Clinton a better chance for your scenario when we have the wood duck and -- road and advocated this.
He didn't come up attack us hopefully -- that really.
We said that Barack Obama.
As president and divided America and that to unify the country to reflect the values that I work hard for for President Clinton.
President Obama should stand down in Hillary should run I think that.
I've been vindicated you don't -- up -- the -- Bill Clinton telling the truth when he said we honor extended data -- you're taxed the same thing was saying -- he's the week before when he made the other comment about that rob.
He would say what he thinks of the truth in that he has to backtracked and on the -- Outrageous that in the inaugural ball again on the telephone -- say what do you do -- -- white don't know about me that but did doing -- everybody.
If anybody who'd do who deviates in this is a little white how to book record book and it -- -- device over -- -- jumping every one in new use.
-- kind of politics since she goes I think -- I think it showed more desperation -- it's desperation Bill Clinton Greg has had a simple approach.
Spending hold down taxes grow the economy.
Worked to produce consensus right and he's offering a different view and you get a surplus everybody's fat and happy everybody's for a week it's all we jumped right over they have we at least can talk to one and also the politics of this thing make no sense them -- -- Barack Obama is a liberal we know that he has the left.
Why isn't he moving to the metal like Clinton did.
But any logical politician knows the votes are in the -- he's got the last week and now that he's in trouble where does -- go I think he's gone a little left and I think the contrast -- -- out there with him hurts him.
Because it reminds voters prickly week Democrats independents what they life.
But rather what they dislike about we really brings one thing that Obama cannot get without.
Cold hard cash apps 70000017.

I want to talk about one of the other subjects it was front and center this week and this is the classified highly classified.
Intelligence national security weeks president was offended he said at the news conference on Friday by the suggestion.
That he is White House would leak this but the reporters say.
It came from the White House he came from his inner circle -- top aides his national security staff that's what the reporter yes.
And let me say something this is very good this is not about politics look what's at stake here we have is it's it's not just about -- -- in this not even about undermining national security.
We have young men and women who are in harm's way we have intelligence operative in harm's way this so much damage has been done.
And it has been done now on the basis it's unprecedented.
And the fact news.
That the president's statement I think he will live to regret because none of that stuff but it's so sensitive what she couldn't coming here -- -- in the white was anyone from the White House from the president on down.
Saying we called the New York Times we tried to stop this.
And bottom line.
They wouldn't do.
Yeah no real none of that -- -- -- and that to me is a clear indication.
That at the very least the White House was complicit in some way this congressman look you you've been around capital and a long time.
When leaks like this and investigations happen it gets really really ugly and invariably it hurts the White House.
-- -- -- and this thing is gonna hurt the White House because now his best allies the media.
Is in the middle of this thing and some of them are wondering other than the New York Times who's leaking.
How much did Obama know about it when did they know -- this thing's going to be another problem for him very quick -- political implications are serious because I think Eric Holder has some problems I don't think anything short of an independent.
Invest here works but the other thing is.
The president is there's a poll showing their poll showing the people believe the president.
He's more concerned about reelection than necessary of the need to the country if that's the case this could be a real political I predict who don't you -- Really Doug -- packet Belgium of the the -- -- campaign insiders thanks so much you -- -- war from.
