How wonderful to see Old Bill up front and being adored by the masses at the DNC last night. Please remember that Bill Clinton’s legacy is mixed and filled with luck. First off, it was a three-way race and Ross Perot basically put it in Bill’s hands. Next bit of luck was the cold war and the short Iraq war of Bush 41 were over. There was a peace dividend that Bill got to hand out to his friends. Another bit of luck was the tech boom. He was lucky enough to be there while technology boomed, the internet blossomed, and Drudge revealed his serial victimization of women (Monica Lewinsky, Juanita Broderick, Paula Jones, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton). Yes, he did balance 4 budgets, but only after the ’94 thumping that hurt Bill’s heart. Then he was dragged to the center, reformed welfare, and ended the era of big government. All because of his deep flaw of needing to be loved. I saw that on display last night. He will say anything to be loved.
So, now he tells us boilerplate “the republicans want dirty air, dirty water, e-coli in your meat, planes crashing… They want the rich to take advantage of the poor… Yada, yada, yada…
Wag your finger at me all you want, Bill. Obama’s on-the-job-training has given us no recovery. Taxing the rich won’t fix this mess. Real grownups need to reduce spending, reduce government to the constraints of the constitution, unleash the private sector, and keep American strong for the sake of our children.
