Bill Clinton: President Obama not getting his due
By: Andy Barr June 28, 2010 07:49 AM EDT
Former President Bill Clinton said Sunday that Barack Obama is doing a better job than hes given credit for.
Clinton, speaking in Cape Town, South Africa as part of the Fortune/Time/CNN Global Forum, said that public perception of the president has lagged behind what he has done to benefit the country.
I think he's done a better job than he's given credit for, Clinton said. I feel very strongly about this.
The former president, who, like Obama, saw his polling numbers dip dramatically during his second year in office, said that Obama is not fully responsible for how he is perceived, adding that a dip in approval is not avoidable in an economic downturn.

I, for one, wish he WOULD get his due...
They all cover for one another.
Why is he trying to save the sinking ship? Why are ALL of the rats sticking with him despite his impending downfall?
Lol...that’ll go over in SA....but not here slick.
And...how would HE know?
Everyone knows that Bubba is a proven liar.
I think it’s because they have nothing else, like the evil mexikan druglords, they live the lie until they die!
That’s ‘cause it’s not November yet...............
Yep, folks are just too stupid to appreciate the Kenyan's efforts to destroy America.
So far he has been an EPIC FAIL.
For once I agree with Bill Clinton.
If Obama’s goal is to drive the American economy off a cliff like Thelma and Louise, the yes Obama is doing a splendid job!!
Yeah his walking papers for being a usurper pres. bill c wasnt he impeached. he has no cred with me
This assessment from the impeached liar / rapist-in-chief??
HINT: X43 is better NOT seen NOR heard!
This is a great example of Clinton tossing a back-handed compliment Obama’s way. HAHAH. Clinton still hates him.
I give him credit for being Barry’s bag man. Delivering jobs to awkward democrat candidates.
I was in the Caribbean recently, they love Obama there.
Guess this means Hill is still on track to replace Joe in ‘12.
Biggest Fairy Tale Ive Ever Seen
I hope and pray that Obama will get his due, and that America will survive Obama's incompetence and evil until then.
Oh, Barry will get his due alright. Phase one in Nov. 2010 - the second and final phase, in Nov. 2012.
I can see November in my sleep
Reminds me of “Will Reagan give Carter his due?”
But willie, you never have gotten your “due”?
I have to agree.
Stroke has earned the honor of being IMPEACHED and REMOVED from our White House.
Perhaps we can make an effort to see that he gets his due after the November elections.
When I was in St. Lucia just after Obozo was elected, we heard a few cab drivers debating whether or not Obama was “The Messiah”. They were quite serious about it. We wanted to hurl on the beach.
They can have him. Good place for him, well no HELL is better! ! ! ! !
Larry Patterson confirmed that he frequently heard Bill Clinton use “nigger” to refer to both Jesse Jackson and local Little Rock black leader Robert “Say” McIntosh. Longtime Clinton paramour Dolly Kyle Browning corroborated Patterson on Clinton’s use of “nigger.” “Not only did he use the ‘N’ word, he called him a ‘GDN’ Browning told Fox News in 1999. [NewsMax, 17 July 2000] Brown also told NewsMax that the president would regularly make derogatory comments about African-Americans in private. “He has used the ‘N’ word before. Bill would make snide remarks about blacks behind their backs.” [Carl Limbacher and NewsMax Staff, 17 July 2000]
And what is different when it comes to the Clintons now day..Nothing!!
I agree--but keep the faith...
aka: Dick Gaines
Obama is CLINTON II
And BTW Bubba I do give him credit for out race baiting Hillary and kicking her fat butt in the primary
Poetic Justice for the wife of the FIRST BLACK President
From one failure to another.
Give it time Bubba, he’ll get everything he is due and then some!!
I agree with Clinton. If B.O. were to get his “due”, he’d be out of office now. Maybe in jail. :)
Just wait for November, Bubba.
How many cups of coffee has Bill fetched for Mr. Skittles now? Methinks, post November, when Hillary decides to spend more time with her family, Bill will not be such a good barrista to the ONE.
“Browning corroborated Patterson on Clintons use of nigger. Not only did he use the N word, he called him a GDN Browning told Fox News in 1999.”
Exactly like LBJ.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell who’s more full of it......Billy Clinton or Blago.
The only thing I hear Bubba saying here is that Obama is doing better than his worst critics are saying he’s doing. If that’s not damning him with faint praise, I don’t know what is.
LOL, Bill sure picks his words carefully. “Damining with faint praise” is right. With these comments I think its more likely that Hillary is considering a 2012 challenge.
LBJ used the word all the time..
here is one time it was used by the old coot..
blow job should stfu.
I perceive him as an undocumented, Muslim Marxist. Tell me where I'm wrong, Bubba.
President Clinton isn't trying to save the President.
He knows that no matter what happens, the President will retain the support of a core Democrat demographic that his wife needs in order to be elected.
He is, wisely, preparing for any scenario.
If the President decides not to run again and Secretary Clinton does run in 2012 - or even if Secretary Clinton runs regardless - the Clintons need to demonstrate that they were not carpers, critics or complainers.
They "supported the President fully" even when "prominent Democrats jumped ship" but now "the time has come for a different approach" and they "applaud the President for his accomplishments."
The road to Clinton II lies through the Democrat primaries and now is not the time to triangulate right.
There is a cultural context for this.
Every Anglophone West Indian island (Jamaica, Barbados, the Bahamas, Saint Lucia, Virgin Islands, etc.) is deeply influenced by Marcus Garvey.
Marcus Garvey is considered a prophet, saint, hero and so forth.
His main teachings, such as they were, were that full equality and dignity would not come for the African diaspora until a great leader from Africa arose to deliver them. He implied, without saying it directly, that it would be a Second Coming.
Many Jamaicans saw Haile Selassie I, the Emperor of Ethiopia, as that leader. When Selassie died (likely murdered by Communists), many West Indians believed that another leader would come.
When a man whose father was Kenyan became the frontrunner for the presidency of the US, many West Indians believed that Garvey's prophecy was coming true.
Again, this belief was not based on the President's actions or voting record or personality or anything specific, but as a possible fulfillment of prophecy - a West Indian analogue of what we see many endtimers on these threads feverishly proclaiming with each new global development.
I’m a little surprised at Bill. Perhaps he truly wanted to run as a communist, but was forced — or bluffed? — to the center a little.
