“It is my professional opinion that he has done a much better job than he has gotten credit for so far. And all elections are about the future, so what is the alternative?”
That was Bill Clinton exhorting (extorting?) the troops at a stump speech for Democratic candidates. He also begged for two more years of Democratic leadership in the House and Senate. He told the crowds if they failed after two years, they should throw them out of office.
Why wait two years? The Democratic legislature has given us a health reform bill which reforms nothing, but creates more massive federal bureaucracy. They have given us a Wall Street reform bill which reforms nothing, except create a new affirmative action program, and, creates a regulatory infrastructure to enforce it. They have done nothing to create private sector jobs or give incentives to businesses to build factories and other industrial plants. They have ruined the banking industry and the investment sector.
The Democrats have increased our national debt to Herculean proportions and have set the stage for disastrous tax increases, further eroding the economy. They have destroyed the greatest economy in history, they refuse to listen to the people, and they refuse to work with anyone else. Their idea of bipartisanship is my way or the highway.
The alternative, Mr. Clinton, is to throw the bums out now before they do anymore damage. Since 2006, the Democrats have done more harm than good. Under Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, they have destroyed America. Our financial resources are depleted and the people are fearful and angry. They killed optimism. They peddle pessimism. What is left of this great nation cannot afford to wait two more years. There will not be enough left to even turn us into a welfare country.
Bill Clinton is a masterful politician and communicator. He is a great salesperson for his party. The problem is they have nothing to sell- except smoke and mirrors. To paraphrase George Orwell, Mr. Clinton’s language is designed to make lies sound truthful, murder respectable, and give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
