Pundits swoon over Bill Clintonís speech
Politico ^

Posted on 09/06/2012 12:08:47 AM PDT by Arthurio

Bubba is back — off script but on message, according to TV pundits of all stripes.

Former President Bill Clinton’s nearly 50-minute speech Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte was praised by panelists and reporters on all three major cable-news networks.

“I’ve been watching this former president of the United States going back to 1992 when I was CNN’s White House correspondent, and I have to tell you, this may be the best speech I have ever heard Bill Clinton deliver over all of these years, and I listened to so many of his speeches during his eight years as president,” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said. “Affable. Effective. As a Democrat it doesn’t get any better,” MSNBC’s Ed Schultz said. “I’m sitting here and I’m giddy. This is exactly what [President] Barack Obama needed.”

If Clinton could do what 0bama couldn’t, then 0bama can’t do what Clinton did!

Big Liar followed up Fauxcohantas.

only problem with the CLinton speech was that it was 50 minutes too long.

“I’m sitting here and I’m giddy.”

Sure, Ed. But the big question here at the Politico is: Does that giddiness rise to the level of a tingle up your leg.

Every night the key note speaker is the best speaker and speech ever according to the media.
Meanwhile, what about OBAMA’S RECORD!?????
WOO HOOO RNC!! ROMNEY CAMPAIGN!! Take off the gloves, please.

You think Americans want to hear “its the other guys fault” and “let me start what I finished because I’m not done yet” when what Obama is doing is heading down the wrong direction.

Finish what? The entire country off!!

Did the “pundits” actually watch this guy without remembering that he was impeached and disabarred for lying in court and to a grand jury, had an affair with an intern young enough to be his daughter, jerked off in the Oval Office sink, dropped his pants and told Paula Jones to “kiss it”, and raped Juanita Broaddrick?

Whatever... With those credentials, Clinton was definitely the perfect choice for “keynote speaker” at the Democrat convention. No wonder the “pundits” love him.

It doesn't mean the voters would be swoon and persuaded to vote for 0bama. In 2002, Linda Lingle (R) was virtually tie with Mazie Hirono (D) in the race for Hawaii governorship. Hirono brought in a big gun: Bill Clinton. His speech was well received by local media. In couple days, polls showed Lingle started to pull away from Hirono. After the election, which gave Hawaii the first Republican Governor in 40 years, Hirono's camp revealed that their internal numbers also showed movement against her after Clinton's speech.

Interestingly, Lingle and Hirono will face off each other again this year in the US Senate race.

I watched something called Part One on youtube and then decided I couldn’t take any more. It was all lies. The wonderful way Obama has boosted our national security was the clincher.

His delivery was also almost archaic. Like those old speeches you watch and marvel at the way they delivered speeches then—so rhetorical and bombastic. Almost like a parody. Well, this wasn’t parody. This may seem trivial but his histrionic delivery just points out the entire phoniness of the speech.

But you just pointed out two planks of the Liberal platform:

It's always someone else's fault (after all, they can't blame God any more if they threw him out).

If you are wrong, shout it louder, say it more often, double down (again). (That sort of bluster gets the sheep moving wherever you want them.)

After all, the Liberal press isn't stupid, they're diabolical. They expect to be well rewarded for their efforts and have sold their souls to get where they are.

Well put; they have damaged their reputation permanently.

Held in contempt, disbarred and impeached because he lied under oath about his serial sexual harassments and yet is a champion for the party trying to resist the Republicans’ so-called “War On Women?”

“Beam me up Scotty—this planet's life forms crawled out of the slime and got stupider.”

I can’t help but wonder what Clinton got in return for getting the masses all excited for Obama. I’ve heard he doesn’t like The One very much.

I like him way more than Obama...in fact, by 100 percent.

Every time Obama needs help, they drag out Bill Clinton. It’s pathetic.

No great speech ever fed a hungry child.

No great speech ever got an unemployed worker a job.

No great speech ever brought down the cost of living.

The pundits can circle jerk over the Perv’s words all they want; he still didn’t change the bad economy into a good one.
