Bill Clinton On Obama

Very interesting comments at the link.

Former President Bill Clinton tried to get former senator Ted Kennedy to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in the 2008 election by describing Barack Obama this way: “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”

This anecdote is revealed in a New Yorker article on the relationship between Bill Clinton and Obama:

Tim Russert told me that, according to his sources, Bill Clinton, in an effort to secure an endorsement for Hillary from Ted Kennedy, said to Kennedy, “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”

Clinton is giving a keynote address at the Democratic convention this week in Charlotte, North Carolina…

Has anybody seen the Clinton ads for Obama where he says that deregulation got us into trouble?  Clinton enacted NAFTA and repeal of Glass Steagall.    He also revised the BLS  inflation statistics to exclude fuel and food.  Now he’s trying to blame deregulation on Republicans.  What a crock!  It seems that you can take a boy out of Arkansas, but you can’t take Arkansas out of a boy.  He is truly an ornament to the gallery of people who will lie to your face while picking your pocket.
