Hillary Clinton continued her never-ending excuses tour this week, turning her sights on former President Barack Obama; claiming his two-terms in office made it hard for her to “put forth an agenda for change.”
The doomed nominee was speaking with national radio host Hugh Hewitt when she openly blamed Obama’s eight years in the White House –and non-stop campaigning- for her stunning 2016 defeat to Donald Trump.
“It is true that when you run to succeed a two-term president of your own party, you have a historical headwind blowing against you,” said Clinton. “It’s not just this campaign can be set apart from everything that’s ever happened in our politics. It is a challenge.”
“If you are both the candidate defending a lot of the areas of agreement, but also putting forth an agenda for change, which is what I tried to do, it is often difficult to get the second part of that message through,” added Hillary. “So, I do think it was a problem.”
“I did not agree with everything that President Obama decided, but on balance, I really think he did what had to be done,” she said.
Clinton’s attacks on Obama are the latest excuses the former Secretary of State claims cost her the White House.
Since last fall, Hillary has publicly blamed a host of factors behind her surprise defeat, including the FBI, James Comey, Russia, sexism, racism, the electoral college, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, the DNC, and more.
