Bill Clinton Trashes Obama: 'Awful Legacy of the Last Eight Years'

Quote:


...

"But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we've finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that where we were practicing trickle-down economics with no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her. Because she's the only person who basically has good ideas, will tell you how she's going to pay for them, can be commander-in-chief, and is a proven change maker with Republicans and Democrats and Independents alike."

Of course, Barack Obama has been president for the last seven years. And Bill Clinton's wife, Hillary Clinton, served in the Obama administration.

I think he was referring to Republican obstructionism over the last 8 years. Not exactly a wringing endorsement of the do nothing Republicans.

This might be true:
*Update: An aide to Bill Clinton says the legacy he was referring to was Republicans' obstructionism.

"When Republicans controlled the White House, their trickle-down approach drove our economy to the brink of a collapse. After President Obama was elected, Republicans made it their number one goal to block him at every turn," spokesman Angel Urena said in a statement. "That unprecedented obstruction these last eight years is their legacy, and the American people should reject it by electing Hillary Clinton to build on President Obama's success so we can all grow and succeed together."
Bill Clinton knocks ?awful legacy? of last 8 years

Or not.

The left always leave out the Republicans were only reacting to Reid.

Senate bills are allowed to accept up to eleven amendments. This is called the amendment tree. Reid, from day one, filled bill with eleven amendments before the bill hit the floor leaving the Republicans out of the loop to add amendments to bill. Reid filled the amendment tree more than all previous Senate leaders combined. This is an obstruction tactic, and the Republicans responded as they should have because this is a representative form of government, and Reid was preventing half of the country from being represented.

The Senate was in Democrat hands 2009-2014 with Obama as POTUS.

Strange how Clinton was quite apt about this miserable Presidency though.

That's why the American people put republicans in control of congress in 2014, huh. They were just such turds that the people rewarded them with even more seats. Y'all look a bit daft when you take campaign party propaganda as fact.

Bill Clinton was a derelict and a lecher....He should keep his big lying trap shut....He failed to deal with bin Laden...He failed to force Saddam to honor the Desert Storm cease-fire agreements....he signed the legislation that ended Glass-Segall....He signed the Community Reinvestment Act of 1998 which lead to the derivatives and the eventual housing market crash....Slick Willie is a fucking bum..
