    ....5) Perhaps the most shocking barb of the night came as Mr. Clinton was lauding Republicans and their convention. “They looked good, they sounded good,” he said. “They convinced me that they all love their families and their children and were grateful they’d been born in America.” Really? Giving a speech nominating Mr. Obama to a second term and Mr. Clinton raises the birther card? At the very least, the line highlights persistent questions about Mr. Obama’s patriotism and whether the first lady really is proud of her country yet.

    Washington Post ^ | 09/05/2012 | Jennifer Rubin
    Bill Clinton, don’t get me wrong, was the best speaker Wednesday night. But that is largely because the rest of the evening was atrocious. Clinton was hoarse, and he seemed to holler for no reason at all. He decried those meanie Republicans of today (the favorite ploy of partisan Democrats is to praise every Republican no longer in office), and he repeated the tropes that Republicans want you to be on your own, want a “winner-take-all” society and want to help only the rich. Yawn. [Snip] At his most effective, Clinton said that no president could have fixed in four...

    Barack Obama and Bill Clinton sealed their political alliance with a bow and a bear hug. It didn't last long, but Obama and Clinton's center stage moment Wednesday showed signs of what was once unthinkable for the former rivals. The two presidents seem to actually like each other. They certainly need each other. Obama turned to the popular former president who oversaw an economic resurgence and asked him to make the case for a second Obama term at a time of high unemployment. Clinton needed him to continue to be relevant in the party he once led, and perhaps help...

    The economy that President Barack Obama inherited from Republicans was “a total mess” and he needs another four years in the White House to finishing fixing it, former President Bill Clinton argued Wednesday in his prime time speech at the Democratic National Convention. The 42nd president of the United States commanded the DNC crowd, framing the upcoming November election as a clear choice between Obama, who he argued would bring “shared prosperity,” and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. “My fellow Americans, you have to decide what kind of country you want to live in,” Clinton explained. “If you want a...

    FACT CHECK: Clinton Claims of Compromise A Stretch September 6 2012 TOM RAUM — It's a fact of life in Washington that what one party considers a principled stand, the opposition considers pigheadedness. Compromise? That's the other guy's problem. But when former President Bill Clinton took the stage at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, he portrayed President Barack Obama as a pragmatic compromiser who has been stymied at every turn by Republicans. There was no mention of the role that the president and the Democrats have played in grinding compromise to a halt on some of the most important...

    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...

    Bill Clinton: Obama is showing America the path to a modern economy. That was so funny I forgot it wasn’t a joke! How does verbally minimizing the accomplishments of the private sector –handcuffing businesses with excessive regulations while creating the largest pool of welfare recipients this country has ever known - aid in forging a vibrant economy? How does adding a record 5.5 trillion in debt in a mere four years - devaluing the dollar, the purchasing power of businesses and consumers - help create jobs, more disposable income, in a rising sea of inflation? Why is it, AGAIN, Democrats...

    The action, which will begin as a pilot program involving 24 banks in 15 markets -- including the New York metropolitan region -- will encourage those banks to extend home mortgages to individuals whose credit is generally not good enough to qualify for conventional loans. Fannie Mae officials say they hope to make it a nationwide program by next spring. Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in...

Who do you think benefits if corporations do well?........ This idea that corporations are somehow non-human is just stupid. Isn't she a Professor at Harvard Law School? What's going on there? Plus, Ms. Warren had the strange habit of pressing her tongue against her lips and cheeks as if she were mimicking a sex act. That was unnerving. But it was a good introduction for Bill Clinton.

    Bill Clinton was off his game tonight in one of the longest nomination speeches in the history of humankind. The former president began his DNC speech mocking the the very idea of self empowerment and individual success. After seeming to imply that he could work better with compromise than the man he was nominating, he launched into his trademark rhetoric: In Tampa, we heard a lot of talk about how the President and the Democrats don't believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everyone to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy....

    Charles Krauthammer reacts to former President Bill Clinton's address to the 2012 Democratic National Convention: "I think it was a giant swing ask a miss. Mighty Casey and Bill Clinton is a natural, he struck out on this. I don't think it would move a needle whatsoever. Look, it had all the classic Clinton elements; it was engaging, it was humorous. In some cases, it was generous and there are more mentions of the Bushes than I heard in three days in Tampa, but on the other hand it was also vintage Clinton. In that it was sprawling, undisciplined and...

    Bill Clinton is giving the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention tonight. The idea is to make people feel nostalgic for the last time when the economy was really booming, and hope that some of that rubs off on Obama. However, in the New York Post, Charlie Gasparino uses the occasion to remind everyone that the seeds of our current economic malaise were planted during the Clinton years. Basically, it was under Clinton that Fannie and Freddie really began blowing the housing bubble, issuing epic amounts of mortgage-backed debt. The story that Gasparino tells is basically: Liberal Bill Clinton...
