that was weak...
Funny, Clinton has said many disparaging things about Obama over the past four years. But when push comes to shove, Clinton puts party and agenda above the truth. Who cold have guessed it?
If he ran he would win.
That's a fancy historical rewrite there, ranger78. lol
Too bad for the 22d amendment. If Clinton had been in office for another couple of terms we would never have gone into Iraq and the deficit would be half of what it is today.
The truth is I am better off than I was 4 or 8 years ago in spite of both political parties. Romney would want me to fund his trust fund friends lower taxes while watching bridges fall due to no funds to repair. Obama wants me to fund people who refuse to take a job they find beneath them. I will vote, but not down a party line. I am the voter our current politicians fear; informed, independent and middle class.
That's an incredibly belittling cartoon of a great man and an amazing speech. Even Republicans acknowledged how powerful it was. Sham on you.
If we are so much better off, why do I run into so many friends and acquaintances who are suffering, have lost self respect through job loss and are under medical bills that ACA won't relieve? To them, going to sleep at night exhausted with worry is not what they hoped to do. And those fortunate enough to retire are not retiring in the manner their parents and somewhat older friends are. How many of our children can really look forward to a job and life as good or better than we have had as we approach retirement? Perhaps if we had not wasted young lives and countless dollars fighting unwinnable wars or buying Middle Eastern favors with extensive money transfers, our citizens might really be better off. And even if by luck of the times some are better off, the future of this country is definitely not better off with the party leaders on both sides becoming so bullheaded and unwilling to compromise. Do we have to have a crisis before common sense perseveres and smarter people get elected to leadership positions? Watching Christy and Rahm display their egos makes me hope for someone who has commitment to the people of this country. Lots of reasons we're not better off by any stretch of the imagination.
Rosie1941 - No doubt Bill Clinton can deliver a speech like no other. But I have to wonder how you would define a "great man"? Character certainly isn't one of Bill Clinton's strongest points which is what many would put at the top of the list of a "great man".
Fake blush? How exactly does one do that, Mr. Sack?
