Bill Clinton's speech for Obama in Florida

Reply Thu 30 Oct, 2008 10:24 am
Bill Clinton rose to the occasion last night in Florida and gave an outstanding support speech for Barack Obama. I guess he's gotten over his snit. Good for him. He really cares more about his country than his wife winning the presidency and set aside his disappointments. Obama gave him great tributes for his presidency and for his love of country. Good show by both men!

Bill should sit down. His stomping now is too little too late.

A Note to Bill Clinton

Given that we would never have had the odious George W. Bush in the White House in the first place if it wasn't for your blow jobs, Bill, it seems obvious that you owe it to the people of this country, and especially to the parents whose kids died in the Iraq War that Gore would never have started, and to all the parents whose kids would be killed in the WarFest that would be a McCain/Palin -- sorry, Palin/McCain -- administration to do everything in your power to get Barack Obama elected.
But that's not what you're doing, Bill, and it's not going unnoticed. We see your rage, Bill, it's too huge to hide. We see that -- as Chris Rock so brilliantly pointed out -- it pains you to even speak Obama's name. We see you petulantly rooting against him even as you go through the motions of doing the barest minimum on his behalf to avoid being blamed if he loses.
You're not fooling anyone, Bill. You've gotten so caught up in yesterday that you've stopped thinking about tomorrow. You have the power to influence millions of voters and you're spitefully sitting on it. Surely you've noticed what's going on in the country. Surely you're aware of what's at stake on November 4th. This is not a game that you can afford to take your ball and go home with if you don't get to play the position you want. An Obama loss will most certainly be part of your legacy.
There's still time to fix it. How about this for an October surprise? Bill Clinton gets on the road and spends every day until the election sincerely and wholeheartedly communicating the urgency of electing Obama. You're the greatest politician of your generation, Bill. Surely you can fake enthusiasm for a month.
Oh, and stop talking about how much you like Senator McCain. Have you forgotten the vile joke he told a decade ago at your wife's and daughter's expense? Let me remind you: 'Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly? She's the child of Janet Reno and Hillary Clinton.' Are you saying, Bill, that you can forgive McCain for calling Chelsea 'ugly' but you can't forgive Obama for defeating Hillary?
If Obama loses a close election -- one in which even one state where you could have made a difference goes for McCain because you sat home and pouted -- it will be on you. We will remember that you couldn't be bothered to rise above your petty resentments for something as trivial as saving your country from the enemies of everything you profess to believe in. We forgave you for Monica, Bill, but we won't forgive you for this.

Bullshit he got "over his snit". He is playing the moment to his own advantage, as always. He waited until it appears Obama can do it without his and Hillary's help to jump in and make a big show of being big about things. I really think his major motivation has nothing to do with the "future of the country", but the future of Bill clinton's legacy. He felt he was tarnished by how his comments were perceived during the primaries, and he wants to not be remembered as a bitter little egomaniac who couldn't forget his differences for a greater cause.

He may have accomplished that with people who listened to him weave that old first-black-president-magic today, and even with historians in the long run.
But not with me.

Me neither, Snood. Me neither. My husband and I almost got into it about him last night. Hubby is anxious to accept Bill back into the fold but not me. He's torn his ass with me for a long time to come.
**** Bill Clinton. (that's right. I said it.)
