    Default Bill Clinton Knocks Awful Legacy Of The Last 8 Years

    Former President Bill Clinton, stumping on behalf of his wife in Washington state on Monday, urged people to vote for Hillary Clinton “if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us.”

    It was not initially* clear if it was an unintended gaffe or something he meant to say, but it didn’t take long for Republicans to seize on it and post the clip to YouTube. Here’s the full quote:

    “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 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 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.”

    *Update: An aide to Bill Clinton says the legacy he was referring to was Republicans' obstructionism.

    "When Republicans controlled the White House, their trickle-down approach drove our economy to the brink of a collapse. After President Obama was elected, Republicans made it their number one goal to block him at every turn," spokesman Angel Urena said in a statement. "That unprecedented obstruction these last eight years is their legacy, and the American people should reject it by electing Hillary Clinton to build on President Obama's success so we can all grow and succeed together."

    It's perfectly reasonable for him to have been referring to Congress and not the President. I don't think that he's ever liked Barack Obama, and I believe he likely harbors a grudge against him for 2008. But he's not going to speak publicly about the President like that. When I first heard this a couple of days ago I assumed that he was talking about the Republicans.

    It's clickbait.

    A senator's term is six years. He's talking about the Obama Administration, no doubt about it.

    He's never liked Obama, especially after Ted Kennedy endorsed Obama over Hillary. There is NO love lost between the two.

    He or they will spin it to mean Congress but this was a Freudian slip.

    I really can't see Bill watching the news and thinking "wow this Obama guy is doing a better job than me." He probably is pissed that some of the diplomatic and domestic inroads he made has been blown to shit.

    His wife needs Obama but I also don't think he wants to get on his hands and knees to kiss King Obama's ring

    I don't think so. One reason is that everyone says that a vote for Hillary is a vote for Obama's third term, so if Hillary is just going to further deliver on the Obama years, then that doesn't look too good on Bill.

    Bill was still waiting for Obama to bring him his coffee.

    He was also livid when the Obama campaign publicly called him a racist.

    Bill actually had some racism charges levied against him while he was Governor of Arkansas. I think he is kind of like LBJ, a closet bigot that acts progressively for the political advantage.

    He is definitely like JFK when it comes to fidelity. Bubba just has much worse taste in women.

    I believe you are 100% correct. His brother was throwing the n-word around pretty liberally during his first term from what I've read.

    Bill and Hillary both were typical Southern Democratic pols. I believe this includes the condescending racial affectations adopted by Southern elites. Those accusations have been levied for a long time. In fact, there's an official, I believe, Clinton/Gore '92 campaign button that displays the rebel battle flag, which was becoming controversial at that time.
