While appearing on the John Batchelor show last week, Washington Times columnist and Fox News political analyst Monica Crowley put forward a theory to explain why she thinks Vice President Joe Biden really dropped out of the race for the White House.
As Debra Heine observed at PJMedia, all the signs pointed to a Biden run. Crowley said Biden had been thinking about the White House since the 1970s. So what happened, really? What really prompted Biden to quit before he really began?
Heine says Biden’s “initial game plan, Crowley says, was to avoid getting ‘dirtied up’ in the early debates and campaign trail and jump in after Clinton’s campaign was taken down by the email scandal.”
According to this theory, there is only one person on the Democrat side who matters, and that person is Barack Obama. He controls the agenda and he wanted Hillary sidelined to make way for his choices — a sycophant who could be trusted to continue his policies for one term, and, as VP, Liz Warren, who would keep the ball rolling for the ensuing eight years.
It wasn’t to be — but why?
Crowley told Batchelor: “Something bigger and darker going on as is usually the case with Barack Obama.”
“What we have been seeing over the last several months between Mrs. Clinton and the president is a very bloody but unspoken negotiation between the two of them. So the FBI investigation was the president putting Clinton in a political and legal vise and then tightening the vise every so often — when he thought she was getting too haughty, or out of control, or thought that this nomination was hers for the taking, they would ratchet up the pressure, they would start leaking what the investigators were looking at….”
Crowley continued, “Remember, the first story back in March about the private email server came from Valerie Jarrett in the White House. They have been squeezing her.”
Indeed, author Edward Klein wrote in his new book “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary” that an angry Hillary Clinton confronted Obama at the White House. “What I want for you to do is call off your f–king dogs, Barack!” Clinton allegedly raged at Obama.
Clinton, Heine said, has cards to play against Obama as well. What those cards are, we don’t know. And neither does Crowley.
“Whether that has to do with Benghazi, or the Iranians or the Muslim Brotherhood, or the Russians, I have no idea,”she said.
She envisioned a conversation in which Clinton told Obama: “If you don’t back off and pull the plug on Biden, I will go before the Congress and the world on Thursday in this Benghazi hearing and tell them exactly what happened that day. I will tell them where you were… I will say what we said in that 10:00 pm phone call…”
“God knows what else she could have on Obama,” Crowley added. “The Biden exit doesn’t make sense on the surface so there has to be something else at play.” And naturally, Obama doesn’t want to end up like Vince Foster…
