"people ask me all the time, how we go four surplus budgets in a row. What new ideas did we bring to Washington? I always give a one word answer: Arithmetic."

The spin machine is strong with you.

Bill Clinton showed that Obama is on the right path, the GOP is obstructing progress, and that Obama's policies are better for the nation. That's why he should be president. And it's not Clinton's task to talk about the future, it's Obama's. You probably didn't hear it because of the buildup of bullsh*t in your brain.

I thought it looked like he lost a bit of weight.

For some guy who used to lead the free world he's actually looking pretty good, especially for his age (he is ten years younger than John McCain for example). DC ages you terribly.


The Presidency ages a man fast. That Clinton actually looks this good, 12 years out of office, says something. I guess chasing tail while your wife helps run the free world is good for you after all...

feanorn: Sigh.

Spin has nothing to do with it. It's rather this: there's simply no comparison between C & O as politicians (and not as speakers, if consistency matters to you), and the speech C gave is evidence of that. Unless O gives the speech of his life when it's his turn (and he's yet to again give a speech nearly at the quality of his '04 speech, so I doubt he will), the contrast will be Sun vs. Moon. In a case such as this, content isn't what matters: letting C do what he does best, before O gets up to speak, only makes the difference that much more apparent. You're focused on content; that's great. It's good that you're paying attention. But most folks aren't, and don't, and that's the point.

Lessee now, the Arithmetic line? Check. Brass? Check. Zero? Check.
Double down on trickle down? Check. Blood Sport? Check.
Constructive co-operation? Check. Fact checkers? Check.

Good list.

A few honorable mentions as well...

"As another president once said, there they go again."

And..

"Now, when you say, what are you going to do about this $5 trillion you just added on? They say, oh, we'll make it up by eliminating loopholes in the tax code.

So then you ask, well, which loopholes, and how much? You know what they say? See me about that after the election. I'm not making it up. That's their position. See me about that after the election."


And...

Don't you ever forget when you hear them talking about this that Republican economic policies quadrupled the national debt before I took office, in the 12 years before I took office and doubled the debt in the eight years after I left, because it defied arithmetic. It was a highly inconvenient thing for them in our debates that I was just a country boy from Arkansas, and I came from a place where people still thought two and two was four. It's arithmetic.

Romney is probably still curled up into a fetal ball somewhere whimpering after that speech.

Maybe on his Cayman Island flagged yacht.

I'm also fairly certain we wouldn't have a Senate where the average age is over 60.

That's a plus IMO. Also they would definitely welcome term limitations.


It would also make President Camacho that much more likely. But I'm not so sure they'd want term limits. We'd see a lot more voluntary retirements, and not a few deaths-in-office (or resigned-due-to-injury/coma), but the egotists in office would DEFINITELY not be happy about not being able to defend their belts.
