Washington, Oct. 20 (ANI): Former US President Bill Clinton has said that President Barack Obama is facing a tough re-election race because "impatient" Americans haven't fully recognized an economy on the mend. Campaigning for Obama in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Clinton urged voters to judge Obama on the past three years since he took office, in which private sector job growth has made up for lost ground. "This shouldn't be a race. The only reason it is, is because Americans are impatient on things not made before yesterday and they don't understand why the economy is not totally hunky
Comments: It's our fault the Empty Chair failed. Wow!
LOL...let me see - the uneducated folks are flocking to Obama, but the economists, business leaders, MBA's, etc., the people who best know how to read signs of an economy, are flocking to Romney. And Clinton thinks the problem is that we can't see the light? What have they been putting in his moonshine?
clinton should take his crooked body home, enjoy his retirement, and shut up. We all know how he tortures the truth at anyone expense as long as it benefits his twisted person.Obama's problem, one among many, is he operates in the dark or ignores all.
Dang! Can we not ever learn? In 1979 Carter said this 'malaise' was all our fault, but we didn't listen and look what happened! That awful Ronald Reagan came in and soon everyone was awash in money. The 'decade of greed' they called it.
Now, The Clinton is out reminding us of the error of our ways. Why, if we're not careful, it could happen all over again, as in the 1980 election! Horrors!
Doesn't Monica have a new book out? Hey, Bubba, why don't you go on a book tour with her and leave the advice to someone who knows what they are talking about. The economy sucks and a few million part time jobs and McDonald gigs isn't going to cure what ails us.
FTA- Bill Clinton- " The only reason it is, is because Americans are impatient on things not made before yesterday and they don't understand why the economy is not totally hunky-dory again," Wow. Could Clinton be any more insulting ? The Democrats really do hold the general population in contempt. Of course, 2008 did show that the majority of voters deserved to be treated like the Democrat base. The Democrat base happily laps up the usual ignorant pablum directed at them by their leaders. Normal citizens find it to be an affront to their intelligence and common sense. And talk about being out of touch..
This is Bubba Clinton's revenge. Read the article with the idea of a double message and it becomes really funny. Obama played the race card on Bill when Hillary was running for POTUS and now it appears that Obama has thrown Hillary under the bus with his rhetoric about Benghazi. It is payback time, and Bill is definitely thinking about 2016. Bill and Hill need the next four years to regroup and to try and burnish Hill's sorry record as SOS.
I think you're missing it on this one. Bill Clinton is in this world for one person: Bill Clinton. I believe he is now subtly doing what he can to undermine Obama. Every statement he makes reminds voters how bad things are. The fact that they need Clinton's support makes it very difficult to counter. From Obama's point of view, Clinton is the gift that keeps on taking.
Impatient? Perhaps....but he forgot about hunger; wanting to make your rent or mortgage payment; wanting to purchase clothing for you kids; or not wanting to spend $80 to fill up your gas tank, to name a few . What is it about Democrat ex-presidents that make them seem so much like butt-pimples?.
Clinton again, and wrong as usual. We DO see the light, and it isn't shining from your sock puppet Obama. You guys have been giving him bad script to read. Turn away from the Marxist workers utopia crap because America is rejecting it .
I have been very remiss in not thanking the state of Wisconsin for causing the liberals to spend Tens of Million$ in the last couple of years. That state is not going to elect Obama, again. I'm convinced that all the WI polls are taken in or around Madison and bluest areas of Milwaukee. The balance of the state is full of real Americans. The same holds true in MI, OH, PA and all of the so-called swing states.It's getting very close to the time that the pollsters have to start telling the truth rather than what their customers in the MSM have been asking them to concoct.
"But they like him as a person" is one of the most egregious pieces of propaganda in political history.
Clinton is just being his usual "Buba" self, ignoring the truth, believing his little fantasy - Impatient?! How about disgusted, worried, desperate, shamed, disgraced, embarrassed, ruined, shocked, angry, frustrated, tired, . . . - I could go on for several more lines here.
#27 Con't. (Sorry) Sometimes you need to jettison something that just doesn't work anymore. I've held on to stock instead of dumping it at a loss because of an emotional attachment to the idea, until it went down to ZERO. HOPEfully those who bought into the CHANGE promised will see the light.
Can't see the light? I find it sadly incongruous that the Democrat "point man" for the upcoming elections is a disbarred felon from deep in the Ozark woods, who should be hard at work this beautiful autumn day producing license plates in the Leavenworth Penitentiary Machine Shop, instead of pocketing meg-millions pontificating round-the-clock on the political rubber chicken circuit!
Bubba's team was still in place due to democrats stalling Bush appointments at the time of 9/11. Policies put in place under Bubba by Jamie Gorlick prevented intelligence sharing between CIA and FBI. Bubba's attorney general Janet threatened to prosecute banks that did not give out loans to people who should never have gotten them leading to the mortgage meltdown and now his corrupt wife and female Butch gang run a broken state dept. Bubba is all Obama has got left to throw at Romney sounds like the O is in really bad shape.
Premature enunciation from the mouth of Bill Clinton! Obama said that he would be comfortable with 6.00 a gallon gas..it is around 4.00 now, do we want Obama to have 4 more years to finish the job? No thanks, it was 1.68 a gallon when GW left office. Gas prices are hurting every business and every family in America through rising prices.
There is not enough patience in the whole WORLD for people to wait for the Current Regime to "turn things around".
Because there is no intention for anybody in the Current Regime to turn things around, if that means taking their collective boot off the throat of the economy, and bringing genuine prosperity back to America and the world.
The US fought WWII for about 2 months longer than Obama's been in office.
BTW, given what's known and proven, and what's reasonably suspected, about Bill Clinton, how does he get public attention? Who would ever allow themselves to be in his company, much less seek to be?
#17: I'd bet a Victoria's Filet that Hillary's heard bigger ones....
#19: Here's an anti-Obama point I've raised a couple times, and it doesn't require anyone "changing sides": "even those who agree with Obama's policies have to admit that, after all this time and all this spending, he's just not getting it done."
#27: Slick had an El Camino. An Eldorado [one word in Cadillac's usage] has style.
Shortly before receiving the medal of freedom from President Obama, Oprah Winfrey gave an interview to the BBC in which she seemed to chalk up much of the opposition to the president to racism: "I think there's a level of disrespect for the office that occurs ... because he's African American," she said. Her claim reminded me of the times when, as a child of the '70s, my father would ask an odd question about my friends, "What is he?" "Huh?" I'd ask. "You know, what is he — Italian? German? Lebanese? What is he?" my father replied. Colorblind eyes - I had no idea what my friends' ethnic origins were.
While just eight days of legislative business remain before lawmakers are expected to leave Washington for the winter holidays, House Speaker John Boehner maintained that immigration reform still has a spot in his majority’s agenda next year, but he does not intend to move on comprehensive legislation. (Snip)“Is immigration reform dead? Absolutely not,” Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters during a news conference at the Capitol Thursday. “I believe that Congress needs to deal with this issue. Our committees are continuing to do their work. There are a lot of private conversations that are underway to try to figure out, how do

WASHINGTON — Many doctors are disturbed that they’ll be paid less – often a lot less – to care for the millions of patients who are projected to buy coverage through the health law’s new insurance marketplaces. Some have complained to medical associations – including those in Texas, California, Georgia, Connecticut and New York – saying the discounted rates could lead to a two-tiered system in which fewer doctors participate, perhaps making it harder for consumers to get the care they need. “As it is, there is a shortage of primary care physicians in the country, and they don’t have
An official with the nonprofit Obamacare enrollment group Enroll America conspired to give people’s personal information to what he thought was a political action committee, according to James O’Keefe’s latest video, provided to The Daily Caller. Enroll America, which Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted to fundraising for, is a “nonpartisan” 501(c)(3) nonprofit that critics accuse of working as an unofficial Obamacare navigator across the country. Enroll America’s Texas state communications lead Christopher Tarango conspired to provide a list of potential Obamacare enrollees,
Secretary of State John Kerry announced Wednesday that he and Afghan President Hamid Karzai have reached an agreement on a critical security pact governing the presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan beyond 2014. The document will be presented to a meeting of (snip) Kerry, though, denied that there was any sort of "apology" in the works, following reports on Tuesday that as part of the deal, President Obama would send a letter to the Afghan people acknowledging "mistakes."

If he thought his apology for his fecal fantasies about Sarah Palin was going to be the end of $#!+gate, he just dung get it. David Bauder, AP: MSNBC was not saying Tuesday whether disciplinary action is planned against show host Martin Bashir, who has apologized for “deeply offensive” comments he made about Sarah Palin…An MSNBC spokeswoman did not immediately respond to questions Tuesday about whether any further action was being contemplated against Bashir. The story here isn’t that our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters at MSNBC are stonewalling. Of course they are. The story is that they’re being forced
Representative Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) announced she will fast for a day as part of a push for amnesty. She will join an effort by activists on the National Mall who began fasting over a week ago. “I’m so inspired by the fasters and … how they’re willing to put their bodies on the lines, their health on the line to raise attention to an issue that is really tearing at the fabric of our country,” she said. Schakowsky, who has planned her fast for Thursday, encouraged her colleagues to join her in her day-long fast. Schakowsky, who has planned
Stepping up his attacks on Chris Christie, Sen. Rand Paul questioned the conservative bona fides of the New Jersey governor for expanding Medicaid and “embracing Obamacare.” The Kentucky Republican and potential 2016 presidential candidate was asked Tuesday whether possible 2016 hopefuls Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush could be considered conservatives. “I don’t think any one person gets to decide what is or what isn’t conservative,” Paul said on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront.” “On the case of the New Jersey governor, I think embracing Obamacare, expanding Medicaid in his state is very expensive and not fiscally conservative.”
Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio thinks Democrats might be ready to repeal Obamacare in eight weeks. "Look, this law cannot be saved. It will have to be repealed and the question is how long will it take for Democrats to realize that and cooperate in that endeavor," Rubio told Bill O´Reilly on Fox News Tuesday. "So far I think upper echelons of the Democratic party, they´re still being very stubborn about it. My prediction is check back in eight weeks," Rubio said. Rubio promoted a bill he introduced to prevent the federal government from subsidizing insurance companies if they don´t
Some drivers along a busy North Fort Worth street on Friday were stopped at police roadblock and directed into a parking lot, where they were asked by federal contractors for samples of their breath, saliva and even blood. It was part of a government research study aimed at determining the number of drunken or drug-impaired drivers.

KABUL – While many Americans have been led to believe the war in Afghanistan will soon be over, a draft of a key U.S.-Afghan security deal obtained by NBC News shows the United States is prepared to maintain military outposts in Afghanistan for many years to come, and pay to support hundreds of thousands of Afghan security forces. The wide-ranging document, still unsigned by the United States and Afghanistan, has the potential to commit thousands of American troops to Afghanistan and spend billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. (snip) “No detention or arrest shall be carried out by the United States

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes an alarming number of
Noel Ignatiev, a professor at Massachusetts College of Art, has for years advocated the total elimination of Caucasians. During his final lecture before retirement last Monday, he told his white male students "you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease." NOEL IGNATIEV: If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a
Appearing on Arsenio Hall’s talk show over the weekend, ?Jesse Jackson defended both President Obama, who he said has faced heretofore unseen advsersity as president, as well as Jackson’s embattled son, who he said “had the best voting record in the Congress” before he was sentenced by unfair laws. On the president, Jackson praised him for “serving us well against the most hostility an American president has ever had” and “more attempts to derail his legislation then in the history of the country.” Between job creation and his efforts in Iraq, President Obama has “maintained a kind of dignity” without stooping
Pure, sweet, schadenfreudean goodness from Politico. See now why I think there’s a chance that those new Iran sanctions pass with veto-proof majorities? Turns out, after three years and a half years of development plus two months of frantic triage to Healthcare.gov, Democrats are finally ready to hold the White House accountable for its giant O-Care fark-up. A little. “The president and his team have repeatedly assured us that the system will be working by Dec. 1. That’s when I start looking at what we have to do in our oversight function to hold the administration accountable for making it work.” Rep.
Located just 50 miles off the U.S. coast, north of New York City, sits Petra, a heart-shaped island that now belongs to Brad Pitt, after Angelina reportedly shelled out £12.2million to buy it for his 50th birthday. Pitt is apparently an architect fanatic, so when Jolie discovered that the island´s only two homes were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, she was sold. Pitt once said,“When I discovered Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright, it changed my life.” A source revealed that “as soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed.
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R) left the door open to another presidential run during a Monday panel in New Hampshire. Asked whether he ever thinks about running again — Huntsman dropped out of the 2012 Republican primary after finishing third in New Hampshire — he suggested he hadn´t ruled out the option. He closed a long response to the question, posed at Saint Anselm College, by saying: "Which is a long way of saying that I love public service. I´ll always be committed to public service. And as an itinerant public servant, from time to time, it´s hard to know where
SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him earlier this month on domestic violence charges, according to court documents released Tuesday. A search warrant made public by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested Nov. 18 at his girlfriend´s house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument and also used it to smash her coffee table. Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail on charges
"Trust is like virginity: once you lose it it´s hard to get it back." So spoke pollster John Zogby, commenting on his latest poll on President Obama´s handling of his office. Quoted by Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner: "Most ominous for Mr. Obama is that 57 percent now disapprove of his job. That is his worst number yet. This includes 57 percent of men and 55 percent of women; 51 percent of moderates, 24 percent of liberals and 24 percent of Democrats; 66 percent of independents and 40 percent of Hispanics. Meanwhile, a separate poll by CNN/ORC International found: 53%
Maybe it was something about what they served in the White House mess in the 1990s. Or perhaps it´s what happens to baby boomer Democrats more than a decade after leaving office. For whatever the reason former vice president Al Gore has gone vegan, just like the president with whom he once served. Gore´s recent decision to forgo animal products surfaced as an offhand reference in a Forbes magazine piece about Hampton Creek Foods, an upscale vegan product line carried in Whole Foods. Ryan Mac´s article, which posted Saturday, chronicled how wealthy investors including Bill Gates, Tom Steyer and Vinod Khosla
Alec Baldwin has been fired by MSNBC, sources say. The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” has been canceled because of the actor’s foul-mouthed rant at a photographer he called a nasty name. “The decision has been made. He’s gone,” an insider at the cable channel told me. “The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building.” Baldwin’s dismissal was decided on partly because of his diva-like behavior toward co-workers, a source said.
ObamaCare may have backfired in its goal of making smoking so expensive that users quit, public health experts say, as sky-high insurance premiums force smokers to drop coverage altogether and lose smoking cessation programs along with it. "Tobacco surcharges are not proven to help tobacco users quit and there are major concerns that they will prevent people from getting health care coverage," the American Lung Association´s Jennifer Singleterry said. The ALA supports the Affordable Care Act, as does the American Cancer Society, but both oppose the tobacco penalty because they believe it makes insurance unaffordable for smokers. "Charging tobacco users
