David Geffen Really Doesn't Like Hillary Clinton

“Not since the Vietnam War has there been this level of disappointment in the behavior of America throughout the world, and I don’t think that another incredibly polarizing figure, no matter how smart she is and no matter how ambitious she is — and God knows, is there anybody more ambitious than Hillary Clinton? — can bring the country together.

“Obama is inspirational, and he’s not from the Bush royal family or the Clinton royal family. Americans are dying every day in Iraq. And I’m tired of hearing James Carville on television.”...

“It’s not a very big thing to say, ‘I made a mistake’ on the war, and typical of Hillary Clinton that she can’t,” Mr. Geffen says. “She’s so advised by so many smart advisers who are covering every base. I think that America was better served when the candidates were chosen in smoke-filled rooms.”...

Hillary's folks are demanding that Obama fire Geffen as his finance chair because of his "vicious" remarks. Wow, is there anything that Geffen said here that hasn't been said before? The media narrative of everybody especially Hollywood loves Hillary is exposed for being just a brain dead shortcut meme with no semblance to actual reality. I am starting to really like Geffen alot. This is not a coronation. Other people can raise money and not just let us start our 29th year with a Clinton or Bush in the administration just because it is their regal right to lead.

Update:Obama's camp strikes back.

We aren’t going to get in the middle of a disagreement between the Clintons and someone who was once one of their biggest supporters. It is ironic that the Clintons had no problem with David Geffen when was raising them $18 million and sleeping at their invitation in the Lincoln bedroom. It is also ironic that Senator Clinton lavished praise on Monday and is fully willing to accept today the support of South Carolina State Sen. Robert Ford, who said if Barack Obama were to win the nomination, he would drag down the rest of the Democratic Party because he's black.’"
