    Former President Clinton this morning was on Meet the Depressed saying that he can see where the Tea Party is coming from.

    He stated that they see the fat-cats getting over on the Middle Class. He said that the Tea Party is protesting this favorite issue of the Democrats never mentioning that the Tea Party is really out there protesting abusive government. He also said that the Tea Party seems to have a bone to pick with Republicans because as he said "We" generated a surplus during his time in the White House and now the Republicans are guilty of over spending.

    Of course he said that the Tea Party seems to have no real direction.

    Well...they do have direction but he can't see that or he wants to ignore it. Their direction is to stop the excessive spending that's going on in Washington (he forgot to mention that) and the abuse of power they see every day (he also forgot to mention that).

    Seems the popular attack these days is that Republicans are big spenders even though Democrats are even bigger spenders, and that Republicans have a large movement ready to boot them out of office if they don't get their act together. Strange how the left doesn't have to deal with that on such a large scale. It seems most Democrat voters are fairly content with what Congress and the White House is doing. The truth in all of this is that many average Americans aren't.

    Bill Clinton if you remember implied that what the Tea Party says is dangerous. He mentioned that they need to be careful not to influence the unhinged. Now he's saying he understands them. Below is a video of him saying that the Tea Party really belongs to Democrats. He forgets that abuse of power is a common theme of the Tea Party and that the Tea Party is fighting this abuse regardless of whom is guilty of it. That is what he fails to see. Instead Democrats call them terrorists and racists. But now Bill Clinton is trying to say that they're really Democrats.

    WTF????:confused:

    It's really easy to criticize when you refuse to be honest. You can switch your rhetoric on the fly and never even mean a word you're saying. This is what scares businesses the most. They feel that nothing our government puts out will be adhered to. Fear of the unknown...or what the current leadership will do is driving the economy into the tank. We cannot trust a word they say. If something goes wrong they blame it on the GOP. If something goes right...even if the Dems had nothing to do with it....they take credit for it.

    Lets face it folks...a lack of trust is the problem. The Democrats love to cause divisions and that is another source of the problem. However evidence of Democrats not being the only ones guilty of this came to the forefront last week when the right (Karl Rove) started in on Christine O'Donnell....so I don't think Democrats are the only ones.

    Smart move, if Hillary is planning on resigning her post and re-running in 2012. She can't win by going head to head against Obama for Democratic voters. If she can become the moderate candidate in a left versus right race, she'll pick up a lot of disgruntled Democrats and Republicans.

    Lunkhead is my little nick for them.

    He's gearing up to help Democrats in November, I just love that guy when he's like this.

    Team Bill -- Yeah!

    In all honesty I wish he was still in the Oval office.

    At least he makes good decisions when it comes to government.

    The only negative is Hillary....or the occasional Bimbo-irruption.

    Answer: Most Definitely

    Clinton is starting the campaign to appeal to the moderate Dems and Independents who have abandoned Obama, all in preparation for Hillary's 2012 campaign.

    The teaparty does not consist of Moderate Dems and Indes. They're Glenn Beck Neocons.
