Bill Clinton Breaks With Obama, Says No To New Tax Hikes (Is he prepping Hillary?)
Business Insider ^ | 09/20/2011 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 09/21/2011 9:42:01 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Former President Bill Clinton, who on Sunday was one of the strongest supporters of President Barack Obama's jobs bill, said his tax plan "is a little confusing."

In an interview with the conservative website Newsmax, said raising revenues in this economy would be counter-productive.

“I personally don’t believe we ought to be raising taxes or cutting spending until we get this economy off the ground," he said. If we cut government spending, which I normally would be very inclined to do when the deficit’s this big, with interest rates already near zero you can’t get the benefits out of it."

Clinton said he wants the government to take steps to help underwater homeowners — who are ignored by both the Democratic and Republican jobs plans.

"I don’t think you can tax or cut taxes, I don’t think you can spend or not spend enough to get America back to a full employment economy until we flush that debt," he said.

Bubba is not prepping for Hillary. No ‘Rat is.

The facts of the matter are simple - if the ‘Rats nominate someone other than Hussein in their primaries then the Blacks will go Zulu on them.

Fact.

This will cause a ‘Rat wipeout up and down the ballot nationwide.

Without the First Black President at the top of the ballot the ‘Rats are toast and they know it. And no ‘Rat knows it better than the man formerly known as the First Black President.

The ‘Rats will not dump Hussein. Bank on it.

I don’t think he’s been prepping with Hillary for some time now.

I bet Bill doesn’t want to send Obama an extra million dollars in taxes of his hard earned money. Bill likes his money and wants to keep it.

Why would Americans want to give Obama even more money to spend? We have given him trillions and he just blows it and has nothing to show for it. It’s like giving more crack to an addict.

Seriously, does anyone want a woman who actually stood by her rapist husband in office? Pretty poor judgement.

They'll be upset and vocal about it, but they're not going to become Republicans. If he drops out or is pushed out there will be a depressed turnout but that will still happen, though to a lesser extent if he stays. The excitement level of 2008 just isn't there. At this point Obama has much more to lose among whites.

I wouldn't say that Bill is actively trying to set up Hilary but he is being passive aggressive. Checking here and there to keep the options open. So, if something breaks, the path is prepped. Carville is doing the same thing.

For what my opinion is worth, I think you are 150% correct about the reason there won’t ever be a primary challenge for Obama.

Is that Hillary, or one of those air filled clowns that bounce back when you tip them over? Just curious.

“I personally don’t believe we ought to be raising taxes or cutting spending until we get this economy off the ground," he said.

Well, Bubba, you dumb sh_t, you better cut something, and spending is what needs to be cut along with thousands of onerous gubmint regulations & restrictions & fees. The economy is not going to grow nor are employers going to start hiring again, until federal & state & local gubmints back off & repeat the massive gubmint intrusions into businesses.

Bullshit from Bubba. Clinton's own grasp of economics is scanty at best, although he surpasses the Alien Usurper by a mile.
