Obama consultant: Obama said the ‘stupidest thing ever said by a president’

Obama consultant: Obama said the ‘stupidest thing ever said by a president’

The truth always finds a way into the light, and Hillary Clinton’s emails are the gift that keeps on giving.

Months and months after the Clinton email scandal broke, said emails are still shining a bright spotlight onto the secret misdeeds of the “most transparent administration in history.”

Apparently, even consultants on the Obama payroll were growing frustrated with the overtly political motivations driving his presidential agenda.

Fox News writes:

Mark Penn, who owns a public relations firm handling communications for the Barack Obama Foundation, credited Obama with uttering the “stupidest thing ever said by a president in foreign policy.”

In a March 2012 email sent to Hillary Clinton’s private email address, Penn lambasted Obama for his statement to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that he would “have more flexibility” on missile defense issues after the 2012 election.

“This could be about the stupidest thing ever said by a president in foreign policy,” wrote Penn. “To explicitly say that he is laying low on nuclear defense policies because of his election right now and tell your opponent that is to politicize all foreign policy, evidence weakness that can be exploited by others, and undermine the administration’s credibility.“

Penn recommended that Clinton should “consider resigning” if the administration’s foreign policy positions were truly being swayed by Obama’s campaign for reelection. He also cautioned that enemies “from al Qaeda on down” will use Obama’s words to their advantage.

The story was initially reported on by The Washington Free Beacon.

It’s obvious that the Obama agenda has always been politically motivated. He never stopped being a candidate, and he sure as heck never started acting like a commander-in-chief.

Rather than rising to the occasion and preserving the dignity of the Oval Office, Barack Obama sunk the presidency down to his own level. And he did so at the expense of national security and the safety of the American people.
