Among the whoppers told by Bill Clinton in his speech to the Democrat National Convention, the most ludicrous remark was his claim that we are better off than four years ago.
Sorry, Bill. We are NOT better off than four years ago. Not even close, and no cigar.
From FOX News:
Former President Bill Clinton, employing his charisma and eloquence and command of history to its fullest extent, set out to make the economic case for a second President Obama term Wednesday night -- suggesting the country is on the cusp of a '90s-style jobs boom so long as Obama can finish the job he started.
"If you renew the president's contract, you will feel it," Clinton said.
The former president, who presided over that boom, emphatically answered the "are you better off" question Mitt Romney posed at last week's Republican convention.
"Are we where we want to be today? No. Is the President satisfied? Of course not. But are we better off than we were when he took office?" Clinton asked.
After a resounding "yes" from the crowd, Clinton echoed: "The answer is yes."
Clinton and his fans are totally out of touch. They are totally out of touch with the American people.
Do they realize how this crap is playing with middle America?
We are living the nightmare of Obama's economy.
Clinton reliving his glory days, back in the groove, wallowing in the love of an adoring crowd, does nothing to relieve the misery of American families.
Leftists are kidding themselves if they believe that Clinton has saved the failed Obama presidency and turned everything around with his speech.
His delivery was classic "Slick Willie" Clinton, but the substance of his speech was also classic Clinton. BS.
Bottom line: We are not better off today than four years ago. Obama didn't make things better. His policies have made things worse. He's is responsible for adding to the problems. We are trillions and trillions of dollars worse off.
We all know that Clinton is a liar. He hasn't lost his touch.
The funniest lines of Clinton's speech had to be his emphatic, finger in your face insistence, "You will feel it. You will feel it."
