“I haven’t cleared this with him and he may even be mad at me for saying this so close to the election, but I know what else he said to his economic advisers (during the crisis),” Clinton told the crowd at a Wednesday night rally with Obama in Florida. “He said, ‘Tell me what the right thing to do is. What’s the right thing for America? Don’t tell me what’s popular. You tell me what’s right — I’ll figure out how to sell it.’”

When you get right down to it, the ‘Jive Turkey’ doesn’t know much about anything, does he.

Hilarious. Clinton even turns his back to Obama right after he says it.

Obama didn’t have a big smile on his face during this.

LOL - nice to see Clinton's still in there trying to keep Hillary's shot at 2012 alive.

LOL, Bubba still pissed at O's race baiting.

Let me translate:

O: Bill, I don't have a clue but If you tell me I will lie my ass off.

There are times when I think Bubba and Biden are better campaigners for McCain than McCain himself!

What Bubba is saying, in effect (and he knows it) is that Obama doesn't have a clue about how to handle the economy. These are not "off the cuff" remarks. Clinton always chooses his words carefully in order to obtain the desired result.

0 is a ZERO is an Empty Suit.

Hey - if you look closely at that a few times I think I can see some strings on 0 going back to the guy in the row behind him??!

Homer freaking Simpson can ask a room full of people what to do...

I saw this on Fox. They said it was somewhat of a backhanded compliment! Between Bubba and Biden I think we may win this election yet! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! “Ring Ring!” “Hello?” “Listen, what is best to do here, Bill? Being President is really HARD!” “Especially with that crisis Biden predicted!” “Listen, you should have thought of that before you stole the election from Hillary!” CLICK!!!
