Obama: There Has Never Been a More Qualified Person Than Clinton for President

Sara Jerde - Talking Points Memo
go to original
July 6, 2016

Four more years of Obama under Clinton? (RT America)

President Obama argued Tuesday at his first campaign rally appearance for Hillary Clinton that she was the "most qualified" person who has ever run for the White House.

"There has never been any man or woman more qualified for this office than Hillary Clinton," Obama said at a rally in North Carolina. "And that's the truth. That's the truth."

Obama described Clinton as a tough competitor in the 2008 election, saying she beat him in a debate, and said she didn't "give up, she didn't pout, she just kept on going."

Obama went on to talk about choosing her to serve as his secretary of state and said his faith in Clinton "has always been rewarded."

"I have had a front-row seat to her judgment and her toughness and her commitment to diplomacy," Obama said, noting he was witness to her in the situation room for the Bin Laden mission, and watched her as a senator from New York working to help families of 9/11 victims.

Obama also pivoted to criticizing Republicans after saying that Clinton had a plan to improve the economy.

"Now, the fact that we haven't gotten all these ideas done, it's not the fault of immigrants or unions or some liberal, socialist scheme. It's very simple!" Obama said. "Republicans in Congress and Republican governors have been blocking these ideas for the last eight years. It's that simple."

Obama, who has reportedly been eager to critique Donald Trump on the trail, made room in his speech to take a thinly-veiled swipe at the real estate mogul. He said voters who were supporting "the other team" weren't voting with the economy in mind.
