Posted on 09/05/2012 4:36:42 PM PDT by To-Whose-Benefit?
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Bill Clinton will tell delegates at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that Republicans left President Barack Obama a total mess, he hasnt finished cleaning it up yet and that the incumbent president deserves another four years to implement his vision for the country.
In early excerpts of the former presidents remarks, Clinton amplifies on the message Democrats delivered on the first day of the convention Tuesday, describing Obama as a champion of the middle class and Republicans as hostile to the interests of regular people.
In Tampa, the Republican argument against the presidents reelection was pretty simple: We left him a total mess, he hasnt finished cleaning it up yet, so fire him and put us back in, Clinton will say. I like the argument for President Obamas reelection a lot better. He inherited a deeply damaged economy; put a floor under the crash; began the long, hard road to recovery; and laid the foundation for a more modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses and lots of new wealth for the innovators.
Clinton continues, framing the election philosophically: The most important question is: What kind of country do you want to live in?
If you want a youre-on-your-own, winner-take-all society, you should support the Republican ticket, Clinton will say. If you want a country of shared prosperity and shared responsibility a were-all-in-this-together society you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
The wildly popular former president is one of the most anticipated speakers of the week. With Clintons personal approval ratings clocking in near 70 percent and his eight years in office chiefly remembered for their economic prosperity there are few messengers better equipped to speak up on Obamas behalf.

The kind where the Party Operatives who smoked Vince Foster and Ron Brown spill the beans to Congress and Congress arrests, prosecutes, and imprisons the "Wildly Popular" dirtbags who Ordered them smoked.
Nope. Hussein himself said himself if he couldnt put a dent in the mess he would be a one termer..
The GOP Mess... which was controlled by Pelosi and Reid. Let’s not let facts get in the way.
“Wildly” popular former president. Hilarious.
That's rather large. I'd rather tone it down to what sort of dwelling would you like to live in. And my answer would be "one with a roof please and working electricity and a fridge with some food" because all that's looking rather dicey in Obama's America. Once they get that part squared away, they can move on to the big, philosophical questions.
Not a very strong argument. Bubba will kill Obama with faux praise.
The commie bastards are solidifying thier true agenda and thier eventual hold on America, we need to get out and vote in mass, more of a crushing defeat than carter
If George Bush is still the most potent force in the US economy, what does that make Barack Obama?
***Wildly popular former president. Hilarious.***
Example - the downgrade from the stadium: Clinton can’t fill that either.
“we need to get out and vote in mass”
Well, with Romney as our point puppet, this Ain’t going to be a Reagan landslide.
What we Need to do is prepare for the B’tards trying to steal it after the fact with their chad swallowing recalls. Watch the polling places for mystery boxes (of phony/stolen ballots) coming and going in car trunks.
I think Slick IS trying to screw over the bag carrier.
Slick knows that a majority DO NOT want the radical changes, i.e. “Vision” that the bag carrier wants for the country.
Both parties essentially tried to destroy basic Capitalist principles at lay in the economy. The Democrats have tried to blame it all on Bush. Bush doesn’t want to the blame either.
Now Obama wants to fix it by doubling down on Socialist/Communist policies that got us in this mess.
At the same time, he blames everything on Capitalism, and says the Socialist/Communist fixes are what are called for, since Capitalism has been proven to have been a failure.
These two parties have just about tag-teamed us to death.
Frankly, I’m sick of it.
I listened firsthand to a woman recount how she was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton. She recounted the event to us during a bar-b-que in our back yard. It was incredible to hear her describe Clinton's actions.
The event she described happened in the Rose Garden of the White House with people all around.
If this is Bubba’s strategy IT ISN’T GOING TO WORK. REAGAN CLEANED UP CARTER’S MESS IN LESS THAN FOUR YEARS. It’s not that hard. All you do is TAKE THE GOVERNMENT’S BOOTS OFF THE NECKS OF BUSINESSES AND EVERYDAY AMERICANS.
Yeah, the Rats want to pretend the didn’t take control of the House and Senate i. 2007. They also want to pretend Obama didn’t have super majorities in both houses of Congress the first 2 years of his term, and forget that the opposition to Obamacare was bipartisan. Also this wopper on FNC earlier, James Rosen called Bill Clinton the “architect of welfare reform.”
Agreed. If this is his message, it’s not going to resonate. It’s more of the it’s every one else’s fault.
Actually, I think they’re right about his popularity. Guys at work love him, same with my last job.
May not make sense but they like him.
Riiight - Clinton was drug kicking & screaming into welfare reform by Newt & the '94 GOP congress.
Did Rosen bother mentioning how Obama just gutted "welfare reform"?
As a result people think back fondly on his administration.
But "wildly" popular?
No, he said Romney is going to get rebuked on his welfare attack ad by “Bill Clinton, the architect of welfare reform.”. Is James Rosen a liar or that stupid?
Since at least the 1870's that movement has attempted to bring about the kinds of "change" from America's founding ideas to another, counterfeit, set of ideas. One set leads to freedom. The counterfeit set leads to tyranny.
Believers in "progressivism" subscribe to the second set and will work together to bring about its goals, using all the means available to do so.
Americans should hold fast to the Founders' ideas of liberty instead of allowing its leaders to plunge it into European-style socialism.
From the Liberty Fund Library is "A Plea for Liberty: An Argument Against Socialism and Socialistic Legislation," edited by Thomas Mackay (1849 - 1912), Chapter 1, excerpted final paragraphs from Edward Stanley Robertson's essay:
"I have suggested that the scheme of Socialism is wholly incomplete unless it includes a power of restraining the increase of population, which power is so unwelcome to Englishmen that the very mention of it seems to require an apology. I have showed that in France, where restraints on multiplication have been adopted into the popular code of morals, there is discontent on the one hand at the slow rate of increase, while on the other, there is still a 'proletariat,' and Socialism is still a power in politics.
"I have put the question, how Socialism would treat the residuum of the working class and of all classesthe class, not specially vicious, nor even necessarily idle, but below the average in power of will and in steadiness of purpose. I have intimated that such persons, if they belong to the upper or middle classes, are kept straight by the fear of falling out of class, and in the working class by positive fear of want. But since Socialism purposes to eliminate the fear of want, and since under Socialism the hierarchy of classes will either not exist at all or be wholly transformed, there remains for such persons no motive at all except physical coercion. Are we to imprison or flog all the 'ne'er-do-wells'?
"I began this paper by pointing out that there are inequalities and anomalies in the material world, some of which, like the obliquity of the ecliptic and the consequent inequality of the day's length, cannot be redressed at all. Others, like the caprices of sunshine and rainfall in different climates, can be mitigated, but must on the whole be endured. I am very far from asserting that the inequalities and anomalies of human society are strictly parallel with those of material nature. I fully admit that we are under an obligation to control nature so far as we can. But I think I have shown that the Socialist scheme cannot be relied upon to control nature, because it refuses to obey her. Socialism attempts to vanquish nature by a front attack. Individualism, on the contrary, is the recognition, in social politics, that nature has a beneficent as well as a malignant side. The struggle for life provides for the various wants of the human race, in somewhat the same way as the climatic struggle of the elements provides for vegetable and animal lifeimperfectly, that is, and in a manner strongly marked by inequalities and anomalies. By taking advantage of prevalent tendencies, it is possible to mitigate these anomalies and inequalities, but all experience shows that it is impossible to do away with them. All history, moreover, is the record of the triumph of Individualism over something which was virtually Socialism or Collectivism, though not called by that name. In early days, and even at this day under archaic civilisations, the note of social life is the absence of freedom. But under every progressive civilisation, freedom has made decisive stridesbroadened down, as the poet says, from precedent to precedent. And it has been rightly and naturally so.
"Freedom is the most valuable of all human possessions, next after life itself. It is more valuable, in a manner, than even health. No human agency can secure health; but good laws, justly administered, can and do secure freedom. Freedom, indeed, is almost the only thing that law can secure. Law cannot secure equality, nor can it secure prosperity. In the direction of equality, all that law can do is to secure fair play, which is equality of rights but is not equality of conditions. In the direction of prosperity, all that law can do is to keep the road open. That is the Quintessence of Individualism, and it may fairly challenge comparison with that Quintessence of Socialism we have been discussing. Socialism, disguise it how we may, is the negation of Freedom. That it is so, and that it is also a scheme not capable of producing even material comfort in exchange for the abnegations of Freedom, I think the foregoing considerations amply prove." EDWARD STANLEY ROBERTSON
” Nope. Hussein himself said himself if he couldnt put a dent in the mess he would be a one termer.. “
And he made it far worse. Remember that during the debates, Romney.
Thank you EGPWS.
It is with a great deal of sadness that I come to grips with what the party of my father and I has been up to.
This does not pertain to racism, but there are other things they have betrayed us on. And it needs to stop.
Great graphic. It’s precisely on target.
Headline should read:
Clinton Acknowledges Obama’s First Term a Failure
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz . . . . . . Same song different singer!
Of course, in the Dems' defense, they have NOTHING else to run on except try to shift their failures to the GOP. The GOP doesn't have a lot to crow about, but the economy is all Obama's.
He has been busy
I’m sure he will probably remind the crowd how many times he had the opportunity to take out Bin Laden during his term and, had he done it, we may not have had to go to war with either country. Or, that his CIA Director is the one who insisted that Iraq was full of WMD’s.
Yes, four years later and the refrain remains the same: “It’s Bush’s fault.”
Why not, “It’s Reagan’s fault”?
Or, for that matter, “It’s Calvin Coolidge’s fault”?
The Obamas and the Clintons and their advisors like Valerie Jarrett need to know this:
There is no place anywhere for them to hide and there will be no statute of limitations for them when the crapola hits the fan -
I am not talking about some angey vets or alleged militia group
The word out there is swirling around now that a second Obama win and the resulting continuing radical scams and thefts will start a huge number of people out for serious retribution and justice
They will not wait for SCOTUS and Chief Justice Roberts or 2016
It will make chasing down NAZIS after WWII look like a musical comedy
Go away go far away!!!!! he had 4 yrs...times up
I despised the skirt-chasing rapist when he was in office, no before he was in office, because I lived in Arkansas under this phony bastard. His chief campaign contributor was the biggest cocaine dealer in the state. He was convicted and a couple of years later this crook bastard Clinton gave him a full pardon. Clinton ran around with prostitutes when he was governor. This was a known fact. Read a book a few years ago by a state trooper who was on his security detail. It made me want to throw up. Everyone knew what type of lowlife bastard Clinton was and thanks to Ross Perot this SOB was elected not once, but twice. Only man in American history elected twice with less than 50% of the popular vote. More people didn’t want vote for him than voted for him. He brought more dishonor and disgrace to the Oval Office than all other presidents combined. Newt Gingrich is the reason Clinton got any of his agenda passed. He also balanced the budget because this ass dismantled the US military. When I hear how popular he is now it makes me sick to my stomach. Who in the hell are they polling, all democrats? I know of no republicans that feel he was so great. The SOB also sold nuclear secrets to the Chinese for campaign cash. Clinton should be serving a life prison sentence for high crimes against the United States, instead of going around acting he’s the greatest thing since peanut butter. He also HATES Obama. The phoney bastard makes me want to throw up. And just think I didn’t even mention that he was the second president in American history impeached and while on still serving had rape charges brought against him.
Then if they want to blame the financial crisis that Barney Frank caused - let them.
Then if they want to blame the financial crisis that Barney Frank caused - let them.
You’re preaching to the choir. I know how awful he was, it’s just that others don’t know and I see that. It’s sad but it’s America today. ;-(
Bubba can give a good speech.
and the only reason he was any success is because the Republican Congress and Newt held his feet to the fire. It was a Republican Congress..and he buttered up to the Bushes after he was out of office....because he needed to get some class, character, dignity and respect..
He is so proud of Hillary...hell in four years bet they saw each other for what a couple weeks...she is always up in the air...what a bunch of bull s_i_ he is saying...and he won't stop until they drag him off the stage..
He'll talk all night if someone doesn't shut him up soon. I think he's on a roll now. Half the goofballs in the audience don't even appear to understand what he's saying. Of course they clap anyway.
And let us not forget, an IMPEACHED PRESIDENT.
It's astonishing...they do a tribute to a drunken, murdering senator, feature the most incompetent president of the last 100 yrs (well, maybe two of the most incompetent), and give a prime speaking slot to this philandering sexual deviant.
If life/politics were fair (and clearly they're not), the RNC would've paid tribute to Richard Nixon...and it would've been more deserving.
>> Bubba: Give Obama Time To Clean Up “GOP Mess”,
Thinking about the docudrama, “Path to 9-11”.
Four years ago the left smeared Clinton as a racist. So why did they want a racist to give a one hour speech tonight.
How long did it take them to get him to put his pants on and tell Monica he’d be right back?
There's the tell. Nobody buys this for a minute, and that's exactly why he said it.
Whats even more astonishing is that the American electorate having been granted Universal Suffrage via Constitutional amendment voted to put this degenerate into the WH twice and hasn't stopped there, putting a communist muslim in soon after and getting ready to put a high priest of the heretic Joseph Smith's cult in pretty soon.
The truly astonishing thing is how the WASHINGTONIANS con simpletons into thinking that they will do anything other than grow the federal apparatus and extort more cash from the productive class to fund their pensions and perks.
P.T. Barnum was NOT kidding.
