Bad news: Clinton time-travels back 2 years to step on Obama’s message

posted at 11:21 am on June 14, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

What’s going to be the excuse this time from Bill Clinton’s team, offered anonymously under pressure from Team Obama? The last time that Clinton undermined a major campaign strategy by referring to Mitt Romney’s “sterling business career” at Bain Capital and Clinton’s preference for extending the Bush-era tax rates temporarily to prevent further damage to the economy, Clinton’s own team pointed at his age — a venerable 65, by the way — and insinuated that the old man’s elevator wasn’t making all the stops. In this clip from two years ago unearthed by Media Research Center and reported by USA Today this morning, Clinton pre-emptively stepped on Barack Obama’s new message of staying the course — and in Ohio, no less, in the same exact spot where Obama will try out his new “blame Bush” strategy.

Maybe it was just youthful exuberance, or something:

President Obama’s campaign speech on the economy today will be delivered in the same spot where Bill Clinton delivered a 2010 campaign speech Obama might just as soon forget.

In September 2010, Clinton told his Cuyahoga Community College audience in Cleveland that Democrats deserved two more years to fix the nation’s economy.

“The Democrats are saying something like this: ‘We found a big hole that we did not dig. We didn’t get it filled in 21 months, but at least we quit digging,’” Clinton said at the time. “‘Give us two more years. If it doesn’t work, vote us out.’”

Republicans claim two more years didn’t help. As evidence, they cite an unemployment rate still hovering above 8%, slow job growth and an exodus of people leaving the workforce.

Well, we’ve given Obama two more years.  It’s not working.  For the third time in a month, I’m in full agreement with Bill Clinton … and in awe of his time-travel abilities.

In all fairness, Dems will argue that they did not get “2 more years” as the GOP took control of the House. Obviously, in 2010, Clinton wasn’t referring to the White House – he was referring to congress.

I love how the Dims always pretend they had nothing to do with the housing bubble, the collapse of which nearly brought down our entire economy.

As I recall, it was during the Clinton administration that the Community Reinvestment Act was expanded, requiring banks to make more mortgage loans to unqualified minority borrowers, in the interests of “fairness” and “social justice.” And it was also Dims who, during the Bush administration, repeatedly refused to consider the reforms to FM/FM that the administration proposed, and instead supported lowering lending standards again and again and again — because everybody deserves to own a house (with a taxpayer-guaranteed mortgage) even if they don’t have a job, or any income other than welfare, or even if they’re an illegal alien.

It’s time to stop the lies, Clinton. They’re your policies. You and Obama own them, and you also own the disastrous consequences of them. You dug the original hole, and for the past three years, Obama has dug it even deeper. It’s time for all of you to go.

Night Owl on June 14, 2012 at 11:33 AM

You realize this is going to be spun as context. All they’re going to say is that things were going great until the Republicans took the House back in 2011. And that of course things are bad now, because those darned obstructionist Republicans in the House won’t let them do anything that will help.

If the right tries to use this for messaging, it’s like a big fat lazy curveball just hanging there waiting to get knocked out of the park by the left.

Past Presidents no matter what their record should assume a statesman’s status and stay away from petty politics. Democrat ex-presidents like Carter and Clinton seem to have trouble with this and, hence, tend to beclown themselves. I didn’t like Clinton all that much but consider him the most canny high profile politician in my lifetime. Why he would get so visibly involved with this bozo’s re-election campaign is beyond me.

DaveDief on June 14, 2012 at 11:37 AM

Clinton is remarkable in his ability to plant these stories that can come and bite Obama. This one is as good as Obama’s 3-year timeline clip. I still think Clinton wants Obama to quit his candidacy and spend more time with his kids because he realizes he going to loose.

Excellent point(s). I have no idea why GOP members of Congress–and Romney, for that matter–allow Dems and Obama to erase all responsibility for the housing bubble by blaming it on Bush. I guess too many of them were cheering on the Dems, but I thought we booted a number of them in 2010.

The “failed Bush policies” were the failed Dem policies of subprime lending for social justice housing.

Bill wants O and Romney to fail, to pave the way for Hillary in 2016.

Clinton cannot abide anyone outshining him and I believe, for all his affability, that he’s extraordinarily, but cannily, vindictive. (He would have had a great career as a mob boss.) He wants Obama to be a screaming failure so that his presidency looks spectacular by comparison.

natasha333 on June 14, 2012 at 11:46 AM

You know, Democrats love to squawk that the evil Corporations have lots and lots of money – they just won’t hire because they hate Obama and don’t want him re-elected.

Ummm, ok. So why elect the guy who all the job-makers don’t want?

The good news is that if this is true, then the floodgates should open the second Romney is elected and hiring should explode. I think that Romney should actually run on this.

mitchellvii on June 14, 2012 at 11:48 AM

Sorry, Bubba, true messiahs don’t make excuses, don’t have to ask for dictatorial powers and don’t need two more years or two more days. They act now, act quietly, get immediate results and don’t take victory laps. You’re asking us to give two more years to the one who’s had 4 years too many. Well, I would like to have those 4 years back–no wait, I want the past 6 years returned so we can go back and erase the reign of Queen Swamp-Drainer. Sorry, all Oslacker can lay claim to is “Oh, what a mess-i-ah made of America!” Shouldn’t have over-promised so grossly.

The Dems and the media thought back in 2009 – just by the way of the ebbs and flows of the economy – that by 2012 the economy would be roaring back.

And all the spending, debt, Obamacare etc would be forgotten in the midst of the media-driven euphoria of Obama’s comeback economy – hence Clinton’s speech and Obama’s “one term proposition” statement.

They are now absolute stunned that four years later things are getting worse. And so here we go with the “it’s all Bush’s fault” meme. It is too funny to watch the panic on the part of Dems.

Sir Napsalot on June 14, 2012 at 11:57 AM

The vast majority of the prosperity under Clinton was due to a soaring real estate market. Tons of homebuyers and demands for goods from those homebuyers. Everyone maxed out the housing credit card and it just took high gas prices to pop the bubble.

Republican warnings in 2004 of impending disaster were met with jeers of “Racist!” by Dems in Congress, primarily Dodd and Frank. That video has not been played enough to suit me.

The great economy of the nineties was a mirage built on the backs of taxpayers. Dodd and Frank always knew that the government would bailout Fannie and Freddie, and the banks were just too stupid to realize they would be scape-goated for it. This was all designed to make sure taxpayers paid for all that housing and banks would get the blame. The Soviets would be proud.

I agree with him on this too, but don’t forget how he treats women. Or that he gave military technology to the Chinese in exchanve for campaign contributions. Or that he perjured himself and lied repeatedly to the American people. And on and on and on.

I know it’s easy to look back fondly at the Clinton years, but that’s only because the 0bama years are so utterly bad that they make the Clinton administration look like the good old days.

ChrisL on June 14, 2012 at 12:09 PM

My guess is that we’ll get a clarification that he was talking about keeping the Democrats at a filibuster proof number in the Senate, and about keeping Pelosi as speaker.

And obviously, the do-nothing obstructionist Republicans, have been passing budgets and bills that the President and the Senate can’t bring to vote or sign, so these comments are now null and void. It was made in defense of keeping everything in Democratic hands.

Which they then will shoot themselves in the foot, as (1) after the GOP took control of the house the economy inproved and (2) the economy didn’t crash and unmployment didn’t skyrocket until a year after the dems took over both the house and the senate.

I agree, this will be their response. Obviously we can still point to the do-nothing Senate that won’t even vote on all of the jobs bills sent to them by the house. Also, Mitt can just point to all of Obama’s other priorities during the past two years (Bill’s time-frame) and clearly show that his focus has not been on the economy for his tenure. I think this, along with everything else Bill has said and will say, is a great help to his candidate of choice.

DethMetalCookieMonst on June 14, 2012 at 12:11 PM

The economy is getting worse now and I’m not sure you can attribute that to a Republican House just as you can’t attribute success (of which there is none) to a Republican House. Congress isn’t getting anything done because the House and Senate can’t agree (except for one recent jobs bill) on anything. Now if we could get the Senate to vote on some of the House’s bills and then get POTUS to sign them, but that’s not going to happen.

kerrhome on June 14, 2012 at 12:23 PM

Rush is on a roll today. He’s already labeled Oblamo’s speech the “blamethrower” speech and it’s over an hour from being spewed.

The economy is getting worse now and I’m not sure you can attribute that to a Republican House just as you can’t attribute success (of which there is none) to a Republican House.

Yeah, but notice that when the Bush tax cuts were extended (and yes, this was before the GOP took the house but it’s still rightfully credited to the GOP) that things stared to improve and unemployment started to drop. It wasn’t until this year, with the House Budgets being denied over and over again and the tax cuts about to expire that it went downhill again.

Monkeytoe on June 14, 2012 at 11:23 AM

Of course, the two issues for which Clinton has always taken the most public credit — i.e., “balancing the budget & eliminating the deficit”, and “ending welfare as we know it” both occurred AFTER the Republican take-over of Congress back in ’94. Though reforming welfare was a campaign promise made back in ’92, he didn’t accomplish it until the summer of ’96 with Republican support. They were Republican issues that he had embraced.

The truth is that President Obama has never made one single effort to work in any meaningful way with the Republican House of Representatives that was elected back in 2010. Not one. Instead, he started running for reelection the next morning.

But now he says he needs more time? All he’s done in the mean time is run up the deficit tab to red alert levels, and engage in highly divisive class warfare games.

Secondly, the Republican House was elected by the people back in 2010 as a direct result of the disastrously radical agenda that Obama, Pelosi and Reid rammed through during the first two years of Obama’s Presidency.

You want to talk about “in all fairness?”

I guess kind of sort of one could make this claim, though it is undercut more than a bit if one remembers how Clinton had to be dragged to the reforms kicking and screaming after the House went to full shut down over his refusal to sign them.

Clinton got the best of all worlds that way- his base got to see him fight, he got to blame govt shut down on his political enemies and see them punished in part thanks to his actions and the lapdog media and today he is awarded all sorts of accolades for reforms that need to take place but most leave out how hard he fought against them.

Trochilus on June 14, 2012 at 12:34 PM

First, if you read my comments over the years on this site, you will see I am as conservative, if not more so, then most commenters.

I don’t care if Romney uses this clip of Clinton to his advantage. I was just pointing out that the clip is easily, and correctly, explained away in that Clinton was clearly talking about giving the dems 2 more years in control of congress.

I agree with all of your other points, but that has nothing to do with what Clinton meant in the clip provided. I want Romney to win (even though I don’t believe for one second that Romney is conservative), but that doesn’t mean I drop my reasoning altogether.

And, this is a conservative site peopled with conservatives and the writer of this post clearly saw that clip and seemed to believe that Clinton was talking about the WH. He clearly was not, since it was in the context of the 2010 congressional mid-terms. I was just surprised that the poster did not seem to understand that.

If Romney is able to take this clip and use it in a commercial to his benefit, great. I was simply discussing it here analytically, not in terms of campaign material.

The talk is Hillary for 2016, but I agree it will be 2012. Whether at the Convention or by convincing B.O. to step down is open to debate.

If the Dem Party thinks B.O. is going to lose, they will throw him under his own bus, rather than lose control.

That’s my opinion.

Well, we’ve given Obama two more years. It’s not working. For the third time in a month, I’m in full agreement with Bill Clinton … and in awe of his time-travel abilities.

Outstanding write up and very humorous. Obama’s head must be ready to explode over this.

Hey, how about this for campaign slogan:

Vote Romney – Clintonomics with pants zipped up.

That’s not going to work. The Social Security trust fund has already been looted by Clinton and Gingrich and company, so there’s no money to steal to “balance the budget.”

Clinton’s own team pointed at his age — a venerable 65, by the way — and insinuated that the old man’s elevator wasn’t making all the stops.

Massive drug abuse will affect the brain.

Bill Clinton’s brother Roger said on a videotape made by local narcotics officers during a cocaine buy “Got to get some for my brother. He’s got a nose like a vacuum cleaner.”
