It could only be a bad president like Obama that actually makes me miss the days of Bill Clinton.
An article from Politico suggests for the Obama Campaign, he is out of control. How amusing.
Bill Clinton is pretty good at sabotaging Obama’s strategy.
He did so last week when he went on television and said Mitt Romney had a “sterling” record while running Bain Capital.
The Obama message is exactly the opposite. The Obama campaign had just run a TV ad claiming that working Americans had been harmed by Bain Capital and included one man saying Bain had been a “vampire” that “sucked the blood out of us.”
“I think he had a good business career,” Clinton said of Romney and added that “a man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold.”Obama does not need Clinton undercutting him. The two are not close, but they are not supposed to be enemies. They have golfed together, they attend fundraisers together, their staffs talk and, oh, yeah, Clinton’s wife is Obama’s secretary of state.
Now, Bill Clinton is crying to save Bush Tax Cuts.
Former President Bill Clinton told CNBC Tuesday that the US economy already is in a recession and urged Congress to extend all the tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year.
Clinton did say that Congress would be best off agreeing, at least for the time being, to extend all the tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of the year, including the so-called Bush tax cuts named after Clinton’s successor, George W. Bush.
Those across-the-board cuts have been criticized by Democrats who say they were skewed toward upper-income earners.
Then Clinton had this to say at a fundraiser last night:
“And, I care about the long term debt of the country a lot. Remember me, I’m the only guy that gave you four surplus budgets out of the eight I sent.”
Well, I’d like to add that he had a Republican Congress who dragged him kicking and screaming to do the right thing…
But, no doubt, Bill Clinton is a genuine political genius. But only when it comes to his own campaigns.
