    When Bill Clinton was President he did the opposite of what Obama has done.
    Clinton governed from the middle and Obama from the left.
    Clinton raised taxes during an economy with virtually full employment. Obama wants to raise taxes during an economy of high unemployment.
    How can Clinton praise Obama?

    Maybe because the GOP wants to cut taxes even more, and increase spending. I'm hoping that the fiscal cliff happens and the economy grows anyway, just like in 1993. I remember how the GOP was whining in 1993 that the economy would crash, what we got was a balanced budget and prosperity.

    You have your head square up your ass. Clinton pushed for a tax increase, and Democrats were trounced because of it. The fact remains that Clinton oversaw record low unemployment, a budget surplus, and high of the US dollar. Why do right wing morons want to go back to the policies of Bush?

    Too bad for you, he'll say why his economy grew better than any recent Republican, and explain why Obama is being stifled by right wing scumbags.

    In some respects, sure. He failed to get universal health care done. Obama succeeded.

    That said, when Clinton's budget (establishing the Clinton tax rates) was passed with no Republican votes in the summer of 1993, the unemployment rate was around 7%. One point better than today but not quite full employment. Somehow the economic Armageddon Republicans promised at the time never quite materialized.

    Except you know it's not going to grow enough. The Republican philosophy of giving huge tax breaks to the most wealthy is a loser. Speaking for myself, I can't see sucking their assholes. It's a strategy that just doesn't work.

    Bill Clinton can brag about ignoring the rise of UBL and Al Qai'da then how he is directly responsible for 9-11 happening.

    He can then move on to getting lucky with the economic boom behind the dot.com bubble later resulted in the slow recession at the end of his last term and went into Bush's first term.

    Clinton can also brag about getting the benefit of a GOP dominated Congress that helped him with a balanced budget and lower spending compared to Obamination's era under a Democrap Congress that spent worse than drunken sailors.

    To end his speech, he can brag that he was able to have sex with other women in the White House right under the nose of his wife telling Obamination that he bets he could cheat on her elephant fatass toosh.

    Obama has not government from the left.

    the whole healthcare idea that he used came from the right.

    romoney and the right in congress during the clinton attempt to reform healthcare.

    and Bush lowerd taxes while starting two wars.

    do you have any idea just how fucking stupid that is?
