Clinton’s speech was long (50 minutes of blathering) and full of a lot of snake oil. How he could say Obama tried to work across the aisle is beyond me! I must have been sleeping for the last 4 years or I’m crazy, because I sure don’t remember it the way Bill does! Perhaps I’ve tried to wipe my mind clear of the unpleasantness of all the money spent, all the unemployment? At the end of his speech, which was scary in itself, Clinton said if you want to make it on your own, (I don’t know what’s wrong with making it on your own!) winner take all approach then you should vote Republican, but if you want to approach this as a Union, with shared responsibility and prosperity then you need to vote for Barack Obama and the Democrats — sounds like Socialism at it’s foundation to me. So lets quickly think of two examples of Unions —
1. the USSR which collapsed and broke apart and hasn’t recovered to this day
2. the European Union which is currently collapsing with the potential of breaking up who’s policies and ideals which are the same Obama is applying to America that Bill so eloquently supported with a side of snake oil!
Thanks Bill I hope the American people see through your charade to get Hillary in the White House in 2016 by supporting Obama now.
Clinton’s numbers need to be fact checked and I’m sure they will be by the pundits and we’ll see how they stack up against reality.
He seemed to be running for president himself as he bragged about everything he did while President. As we know he was a centrist and worked across the aisle, but Obama never did. So he may have worked up the base, but I don’t know if he swayed any of the Americans who are undecided. Only time will tell. Did anyone fall for the hug at the end? Since when have these two – Clinton and Obama been Besties? It made me a little sick… oh the hypocrisy!
