Here comes trouble – and it looks like Bubba

Hillary’s got a Bubba problem again, and it doesn’t have anything to do with a loose zipper. She dispatched him to the hustings, where he has no living peer (except maybe Donald Trump), and he’s giving her campaign a pain by telling it like it is.

Neither Bubba nor Hillary have ever liked Barack Obama very much — and the president definitely returns the sentiment — and Bubba, now raising his last hurrah, just can’t keep the contempt to himself. He can’t resist taking digs, all of them deserved, at the current president.

“Unlike when I became president,” he told a rally Thursday in Philadelphia, “a lot of things are coming apart around the world.” The strong unspoken message was clear: There’s nobody’s in charge in Washington, and the world expects somebody in Washington to be in charge 24/7 to keep the world from coming apart. Like it or not, everybody but President Obama understands that that’s the way the world works.

Even when Bubba says nice things about the missus, and why he thinks she should be that president in charge in Washington, he can’t keep his mouth zipped shut any better than his pants. Out pops another kernel of truth. At a rally last month in Spokane, he went on a riff about what a changemaker his wife is, how she knows how to make people feel good, make democracy work and all that good stuff. They should join her to make everyone rise together, all stump-speech boilerplate that Bubba knows how to apply like soft butter on cornbread. Then he added:

“If you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us … then you should vote for her.”
