Former president Bill Clinton went off script at an event in Spokane, Washington, calling the last eight years, most of which were under Barack Obama’s reign, an “awful legacy.”
Granted, it’s completely accurate that the Obama presidency has been an awful legacy. Still, one has to wonder when accuracy ever became a staple of the Clinton family.
To be sure, Clinton also took a shot at President Bush with his comments, but considering his wife Hillary is running for President as the de facto 3rd term for Obama, the campaign had to have recoiled in horror when he made the comments.
BILL CLINTON: I literally from the time I met her 45 years ago until we talked yesterday, she is the best change maker I have ever known. She always finds a way to make something good happen, to make people feel empowered, to buy people into the process, to make democracy work the way the framers intended for it to work.
Now if you don’t believe we can all grow together again, if you don’t believe we’re ever going to grow again, if you believe it’s more important to re-litigate the past, there may be many reasons that you don’t want to support her.
But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that where we were practicing trickle-down economics with no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her.
Because she’s the only person who basically has good ideas, will tell you how she’s going to pay for them, can be commander-in-chief, and is a proven change maker with republicans and democrats and independents alike.
