While on the campaign trail stumping for his wife Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton took an unnecessary shot at President Obama, calling the last 8 years under Mr. Obama “awful!”
While urging the crowd to vote for Hillary, Bill said, “if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us.”
Here in full context is Bill’s statement.
“I literally from the time I met her 45 years ago ‘til 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 were 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 when we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her because she’s the only person who basically had 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.”
Not sure how this will go over with the die hard supporters of President Obama.
