Bill Clinton Gets It Right on the Mortgage Bailout
From TheHill.com “He also acknowledged that there was possible danger in his administration’s policy of pressing Fannie Mae, the mortgage company, to lower its credit standards for lower- and middle-income families seeking homes.” Grim
It would seem that this entire “not campaigning…”
…is not entirely true. Clinton won’t campaign for Obama until then. Campaigning for McCain, though, is just fine: Extra points for reminding people who wanted more debates in the first place, Bill.
And Now, For Your Daily Dose Of “Bill Clinton Really Doesn’t Want Barack Obama To Win”
Does anyone really believe that Bill Clinton will suspend campaigning in Florida because he wants to respect the Jewish High Holidays? Or is the motivation better described here?
Bill Clinton on Palin, “I come from Arkansas, I get why she’s hot”
Well, if you’ve ever said to yourself, “It’s been 3 minutes and Bill Clinton hasn’t done anything to creep me out yet,” then your three minutes are up. Yet again, Bubba just keeps bringing the gold and with this one, he doesn’t disappoint. This is Clinton at his best. In a 1:00am, 4 Big Mac’s deep induced press loving coma (not his confirmed state, but | Read More »
Is Bill Clinton All That Loyal To Barack Obama?
You be the judge: Yes, this is done by a McCain-Palin supporter, as the ending credit makes clear. But this is not the first time that Bill Clinton has gone out of his way to say nice things about John McCain. Nor will it be the last, I expect. There is no way one can believe that he genuinely wants Barack Obama to win the | Read More »
In Case You Thought Differently After The Democratic National Convention . . .
Bill Clinton still dislikes Barack Obama: Former President Bill Clinton has largely kept himself out of the public eye since his wife lost the Democratic primary to Barack Obama. However in a rare television interview tonight the former president called Republican presidential candidate John McCain “a great man” and praised GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin as an “instinctively effective candidate.” On a day when | Read More »
Democratic ex-President declares Palin “instinctually effective candidate.”
Because it’s that kind of election, apparently. Also, McCain is a “great man” and Hillary’s position on economic policy was more detailed than Obama’s. (Via Hot Air Headlines) Anybody else notice that a lot of major Democratic leaders are saying things that could be considered… unhelpful for Obama, lately? I exclude Biden from this, of course: he’s just being, well, Biden.
Obama-Biden = Incompetent
Over the past 60 years of presidential elections “experience” has proven a tenuous foothold for those trying to discredit an opponent. For instance Richard Nixon was only 39 years of age when Ike put him on the ticket in 1952. The Democrats, who already hated Nixon because of his take down of Alger Hiss and Helen Gahagan Douglas, pounced on Nixon’s inexperience and alleged unsuitability | Read More »
Bill Clinton’s “inspiration”
Last night, admittedly intrigued by the speculation on talk radio that “Crazy Ol’ Bill” Clinton just might be the best entertainment of the DNC convention, I tuned in after dinner to listen. Ah, Bill was good; he was quintessentially Clintonian. Admittedly, he has developed into a good speaker. As expected – he is an attorney, after all – oops, I take that back – President | Read More »
Sincere? My Rear
As I sat and listened to all the praise last night about how wonderful Bill Clinton’s speech was – how he is one of the greatest speakers and how he lived up to what he does best. It made me sick but I agree – he is and always has been, the consummate liar. It doesn’t surprise me democrats still love him. They are godless | Read More »
How About Some Word Clouds?
What are the key words and phrases from the big speeches at the Democratic Convention? Clayton and I have been making word clouds. You can click them to see a larger version in our Flickr account. Here they are: Hillary: Bill: John Kerry: Joe Biden:
Clinton, Kerry, and Biden Lie for Obama
As a Clinton backer in the 90’s… I’m pretty amazed at the irony of last night’s security line up… A president, a Senator and former presidential candidate, and now a Senator and current VP candidate who all argued for unilateral military action against Iraq, noting France and Russia would never support us, because of the threat they posed with their WMDs… whining about McCain support | Read More »
1. A picture is worth a thousand words. 2. No matter how pretty the speeches, the Clintons are still angry. 3. The Census takers will love this. 4. They are large. They contain multitudes.
John Kerry: Bitter much? The entire speech was a catharsis for Kerry, one that was meant to lay out on full display just how upset he is that he came ever so close to winning the Presidency four years ago . . . and failed. The attacks on Karl Rove were amusing–you just know that Kerry wakes up at nights screaming in fury some epithet | Read More »
More Blue On Blue Warfare
Man, this speaks volumes doesn’t it? “Obama does not like Clinton, and Clinton knows it,” asserted one longtime Clinton adviser, a refrain that several compatriots repeated almost word for word, though occasionally in stronger terms. Whether the reverse is true, and whether it matters as much, are less clear. Clinton associates say he was embittered earlier this summer but appears to have moved past that. | Read More »
