Clinton says Obama ‘beating the clock’ on economy
The Washington Times ^ | April 29, 2012 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 04/29/2012 7:47:14 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Campaigning with President Obama for the first time, former President Bill Clinton said Sunday night the economy is recovering faster than expected under Mr. Obama and that “full employment” could still be years away.

“If you go back 500 years, whenever a country’s financial system collapses, it takes between five and 10 years to get back to full employment,” Mr. Clinton told supporters at a fundraiser at the home of former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe in McLean, Va. By that standard, he said, Mr. Obama “is beating the clock, not behind it.”

Mr. Obama told the crowd, “You guys get two presidents for one, which is a pretty good deal.”

I think I’m supposed to infer that all the various national economies of the world, decades and centuries apart, have universally recognized features and are directly comparable.

I always thought Slick Willie could stoop lower than what he has previously demonstrated ... with him, there’s always lower... the kind of guy that looks up to boot scrapings.

Who to believe, Bill Clinton or the Federal Reserve Policy makers? The Fed’s outlook;
http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/fed-economy-growing-moderately-policy-16211490?page=2#.T5r3fVLDs0Q

“However, the Fed is forecasting slower growth in 2013 and 2014.”

Coming from an impeached President that was too busy having sex with interns to care for the economy which led to the biggest layoff period in history, major inflation, a crashed tech industry and a crashed housing industry, both of which are still hurting our economy, and major energy reosurce reductions due to his policies of selling energy resources to the Chinese, etc.

I could go on and on, but if Clinton says Obama is a good thing then we know he is lying...his lips were moving.

“...it takes between five and 10 years...”

Joe Biden, April 2, 2010:

“Well, I’m here to tell you, some time in the next couple of months, we’re going to be creating between 250,000 jobs a month and 500,000 jobs a month.”

I think that there is a good chance that Obama will have to raise the debt ceiling BEFORE the election. This 2.2% 1st quarter GDP growth is a real killer.

Bubba is most likely doing this not as a bootlicker, but out of desire to help Hillary in 2016. I doubt Bubba has really warmed to 0bama, but he knows that if 0bama gets reelected, Hillary gets to run for the presidency as an open seat in 2016, and that’s easier than running against an incumbent Republican. If Hillary didn’t intend to run in 2016, I doubt Bill would do much of anything to help 0bama win a second term.

Neither.

He’s not “beating the clock on the economy”. He’s just beating on the economy.

Apparently not in the Oval Office when you are entertaining an Intern during a Government shut down.

I think the Clinton Cigar Caper is outlawed in some States, but in D.C., Sodomy is the first order of business.

He also said "I never had sex with that woman- - - NEVER", and then pointed that crooked finger at us.
This is just another one of Slicks whoppers. . .

Felon, scoundrel, scoff law ex-President Clinton campaigning for Comrade Obama, in a sane world this should be the kiss of death.

Obstruction of Justice, Perjury, Witness Tampering, Abuse of Power.

All these felony crimes committed by a sitting American President in an attempt to deny a WOMAN American Justice.

Meanwhile, the Democrats are fabricating a war against women susposedly launched by the Republicans.

Well, I have learned a few principles

Women’s rights and war on women mean women actually having the right to choose not to have an abortion, to at least live a partial stay-at-home mom life, and they project their own behavior into whomever disagrees with them. For people like me, it’s hogwash, but to someone who is hyper-partisan, it just sounds fabulous. I don’t like Romney, but given how wierd, unhinged, and despicable his opponents get, especially the guys like Obama and Clinton, well is it me, or is it just well, wierd how unhinged the Democrats have been getting lately.
