Former President Clinton Campaigns In Detroit
WWJ 950 Newsradio ^ | 24 Oct 2010

Posted on 10/24/2010 7:36:30 PM PDT by mandaladon

Former President Bill Clinton praised Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero as a top urban leader during a Sunday campaign appearance in Detroit, but his speech to mostly committed Democrats seemed unlikely to make a difference in a race where independents appear to favor Bernero’s opponent.

Bernero, mayor of Lansing the past five years, has been trailing Republican businessman Rick Snyder among independents and Republican voters in polls leading up to the Nov. 2 election.

Clinton told about 500 people at Detroit’s Renaissance High School that Bernero was the only candidate with an economic plan to turn around Michigan’s battered economy, and he mocked Snyder’s platform as empty “mom and apple pie” rhetoric.

According to news reports more than 500 people came to the rally, but the gym at Renaissance High School was only about one-third full. Even in Detroit democrats are turning their backs on their leaders.

MORE power to the Unions, and more poverty for the poor in Detroit. They decide. We all make our choices.

Why is it battered and why does it need to be turned around?

Soooo, this ‘rat has had an economic plan in her pocket that wasn’t implemented while the economy was tanking.

Kick this ‘rat in the crotch on election day.

He is coming to Youngstown OH this week too. This is a Dem stronghold. No reason to send him when Biden and Obama were just here plus the Obamas are in Cleveland. They are scared Ohio is going red.

Actually I’ve seen much worse pictures of him than that one. His face is always red, big bags under his eyes, etc.

A half full gym is a big blow to his ego, lol!

Why would they “waste” Clinton on a race like this..where the Dem has NO, ZERO, NADA, ZILCH, chance. It makes NO sense...there are many races aroudn the country, which are much closer, tighter, where Clinton might help..but this one..I don’t get it..

Wow!

Slick Willie must have invested in hair-gel stocks!

That vegan chow is not helping - He has been “steered” in the wrong direction -

Somebody forgot to tell Slick that eating meat is why “some” humans developed larger brains and mucho higher IQs than other biped primates ever have

And keep in mind, he has undoubtedly had quite a number of nip and tuck surgeries to make him look younger. Imagine what he would look like without all of the cosmetic surgery.

I’m the same age of this guy, and I can tell you that if he really changed his diet to go vegan, he’s nuts. By the time you are 64, your body has certain nutritional expectations that must be met. And, it is dangerous to trifle with that.

And by the way, I look at least ten ears younger than that guy. Admittedly, that is in part because of Youthair Creme. And because I’m not stuck with Hillary.

I saw him a few days ago in Tampa, whene he was here campaigning with Meek..haven’t seen him up close in three years, since I moved here from Chappaqua..surprised to see how “old” “tired” he looks..95% of men his age who have a bypass, we’ll it’s like they discovered the fountain of youth..for Slick, I suspect there’s a lot of hard partying going on..old habits die very hard..

He’s always had a good head of hair, it’s his face that is red as a rose and a nose that’s too large and getting larger.

You almost have to feel sorry for him.......almost....

I believe you're right, he probably still parties-hardy and picks up the girls fairly easily. But his looks are gone and he looks drained. He never won the Nobel Prize he sought, and he hates being out of power.

Why on earth would Clinton be campaigning for the mayor of Lansing, MI in Detroit? Is there no bigger race in the country 10 days before the elections for the allegedly hottest Dem campaigner to be attending? Something truly odd about this.

The wheels have truly come off the bus if they have to send the Clinton to Detroit to turn out the vote. They’re screwed and it couldn’t happen to a worse bunch. Now, don’t let that stop you from voting, but if you’re reading this site, it won’t.
