Clinton: Obama showing way to more modern economy
Associated Press ^ | Sept. 5, 2012 | DAVID ESPO

Posted on 09/05/2012 7:45:28 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- President Barack Obama inherited a wreck of an economy, "put a floor under the crash" and laid the foundation for millions of good new jobs, former President Bill Clinton declared Wednesday night in a Democratic National Convention appeal aimed at millions of hard-pressed Americans yet to decide how to vote.

"If you want a you're-on-your-own, winner-take-all society, you should support the Republican ticket," Clinton said.

modern = fascism/communism

In other words....”state capitalism” (cronyism). Just like they have in China. That’s they model they seek. From what I’ve gathered......they want the emulate their school system as well.

“If you want a ... winner ... you should support the Republican ticket,” Clinton said.

Apparently, more modern means hunting and gathering, which is where we’re headed under the empty chair regime.

The National Amnesia: Clinton had a Republican Congress and he is taking credit for its success, Bush had a Democrat Congress in his last 2 years and being blamed for Democrat failure.

I'm watching the old snake oil salesman give his speech. He forgot to mention that he signed the bill that killed Glass-Steagall.
"President Bill Clinton’s signing statement for the GLBA summarized the established argument for repealing Glass-Steagall Section’s 20 and 32 in stating that this change, and the GLBA’s amendments to the Bank Holding Company Act, would “enhance the stability of our financial services system” by permitting financial firms to “diversify their product offerings and thus their sources of revenue” and make financial firms “better equipped to compete in global financial markets."

Yes, Clinton and his buddy (forget his name at the mo) headed off to citibank the next day as their CEO. Ludwig the other buddy revamped and enlarged the treasury dept. The corruption was astounding w/ Clinton, Gore, and all their cronies. One of the first things they did was expand the EPA by millions, grabbed land by the millions of acres, one could go on but they sure made hay while the sun shone.

LOL!

Kind of ironic the Dems are using the word “Forward” as their election motto, yet having a washed-up, perverted has-been ex-president as their main keynote speaker. These people are a joke.

Nothing like inviting a disbarred rapist to a convention that is supposed to be all about women. Maybe they’ll finally find out what the meaning of “IS” is.

When obama gets screwed in November, he can put some ice on it.

Yep. the democRATS set the banking system up, pumped the bubble with pressure from the Community Reinvestment Act and Fair Lending, and pulled the rug out from under it. A half a trillion pulled out of the banking system in New York IN ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER 2008 before the election, and you have a liquidity crisis that exacerbates the mortgage meltdown. International accounting standards and key changes to law and regulation for mark-to-market on securities investments and eliminating the uptick rule on short sales, and, wala, a market meltdown of epic proportions. Do I think the Democrats and Soros had something to do with this? You had better believe it!

And it hasn’t stopped. Now they want to apply Basel III international capital standards to community banks. I would call it a “VAST LEFT-WING CONSPIRACY”. The Clintons, Soros and Obama should be in jail, not influencing US presidential elections.

You nailed it! It was the DemonRAT’s October Surprise, orchestrated by the DemonRAT’s control of both houses of Congress.

Why would such a economic disaster happen just before the election? They planned it and had the trigger to set it off with the New York withdrawal from the banks in September.

The reason they blame their current economic depression on Bush is that it was the purpose of the plan.

Clinton talks about the nasty attacks coming from the far right against Obama, but fails to mention the Dems accused Romney of killing a woman, and then they would not refute it. They accuse Ryan of being Joseph Goebbels, but it is the Republicans who are extreme.

Clinton is an impeached liar...and he continues.

In 100% agreement with your statement: .....”The National Amnesia: Clinton had a Republican Congress and he is taking credit for its success, Bush had a Democrat Congress in his last 2 years and being blamed for Democrat failure.”....but, sometimes I think my head is really going to explode because of the non-reporting of the huge home loans made to poor credit risks under threat of discrimination lawsuits...0bama threatened citibank, his own self. I pointed this out to my US Senator in ‘08, and that it was at the root of the financial crisis, along with artificially high gasoline prices, that Republicans were bein’ blamed for, and I heard crickets. Even Tea Party Candidates will not make this an issue! wt*? My hearin’ and readin’ orifi’ are open if someone can pump me some daylight on this situation.
