The DNC released excerpts of Bill Clinton's expected address this evening. It attempts to demean individual liberty, free choice, and the personal responsibility of pursuing your own happiness rather than demand your neighbor provide it to you.
“In Tampa the Republican argument against the President’s re-election was pretty simple: We left him a total mess, he hasn’t finished cleaning it up yet, so fire him and put us back in.”
“I like the argument for President Obama’s re-election a lot better. He inherited a deeply damaged economy, put a floor under the crash, began the long hard road to recovery, and laid the foundation for a more modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses, and lots of new wealth for the innovators.
“The most important question is, what kind of country do you want to live in? If you want a you’re-on-your-own, winner-take-all society, you should support the Republican ticket. If you want a country of shared prosperity and shared responsibility — a we’re-all-in-this-together society — you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.”
If Obama "inherited" a damaged economy, is Clinton blaming Obama, the man who held office before this contested term, for the $16 trillion-dollar new debt and 41 months of 8+% unemployment? In that case, he's right.
