Dick Morris has a new Clinton conspiracy theory. This one “explains” why Bill Clinton is campaigning for Barack Obama’s re-election despite the fact that Morris has “heard” Clinton will vote for Mitt Romney: Because Hillary Clinton is “under lock and key” as Secretary of State and if he doesn’t campaign for Obama, Clinton could be blamed for the loss.
In a discussion with Sean Hannity Monday night (7/30/12), Hannity started the conspiracy-theory speculation by saying that Clinton will, “in his own way, undermine Barack Obama’s re-election chances.”
I guarantee you, Sean, based on what I’ve heard from third parties who I’ve been spoken to, that William Jefferson Clinton is gonna cast his ballot for Mitt Romney. (SH Wow) However, he’s gonna open his mouth for Barack Obama because his wife is hostage. They have her under lock and key as Secretary of State. And he is scared that Obama will lose and blame him if he undermines Obama. So he’ll do everything he asks him to do and then he’ll jab him whenever he can.
Besides the fact it’s highly questionable that Morris would have any “third party” sources with any real knowledge of such a thing – and if Clinton is going around telling people he’s only fronting for Romney that pretty much undermines the rest of Morris’ theory – it says a lot about the Morris/Hannity mindset that they would present it as even remotely possible that a former Democratic president would vote for Mitt Romney out of some kind of grudge toward or fear of Obama.
