Team Obama deploys Bill Clinton to bolster $5 trillion argument

posted at 5:21 pm on October 16, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

President Obama has his work cut out for him tonight. The last debate blasted a huge hole not merely through the Democrats’ messaging on Obama’s record, but also through the vaunted image of Obama’s larger-than-life, mythically superior intelligence, and Democrats have been busily preparing for the task of repairing all of that damage. We’ll be sure to hear Obama work in a selection of his well-oiled talking points: more war-on-women nonsense, Romney’s “47 percent” remarks, and of course, the accusation that Romney’s tax plan will somehow impose a $5 trillion cost on the middle class. The Obama campaign sent out an e-mail this afternoon, subject line “What we’ll hear tonight” via Stephanie Cutter, that included a video starring everybody’s-favorite-Democratic-surrogate Bill Clinton buttressing the $5-trillion argument, since the “basic math” that supposedly proves the point is nothing more than a ginned-up fiction:

…The most blatant example of Romney doing this at the last debate was when he claimed that he didn’t have a $5 trillion tax plan that he couldn’t pay for, and that he wouldn’t cut taxes for those at the top at the expense of the middle class. That’s just not how Romney’s tax plan would work, as President Bill Clinton explains in this video. Watch it, and share it with others so they have the facts about Romney’s tax plan:

I still can’t believe Team Obama can falsely accuse Romney of proposing a tax plan that might not be able to pay for itself with a straight face, when President Obama has been running deficits of upwards of a trillion dollars every year — a concrete, zero-fabrication point on which Romney needs to keep hammering him.

The news of Obama-stimulus-recipient battery manufacturer A123 Systems filing for bankruptcy today makes for great fodder for Mitt Romney to hit him with as well, and Team Obama is already scrambling to preempt the hit, via The Hill:

Romney slammed Obama Tuesday over the Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing by A123, a company that has received $132 million in grant funding under the 2009 stimulus law, calling it part of a “disastrous strategy of gambling away billions of taxpayer dollars.”

But Adam Fetcher, a spokesman for Obama’s campaign, hit back in what may be a preview of how Obama will address the topic if it surfaces at their second debate Tuesday night.

“Mitt Romney, who would force taxpayers to provide $4 billion a year in subsidies to oil companies making record profits, has tried time and again to discredit clean energy. But Americans aren’t buying it,” he said.

Fetcher also cited Obama’s support for soon-to-expire wind energy tax credits, which the president is asking Congress to extend but Romney opposes. The Obama campaign hopes the tax credit battle will help Obama in swing states where the wind industry has a substantial presence.

No, what Americans aren’t buying is the Obama administration deciding on economic winners and losers on their behalf, and pouring billions into ailing green-energy ventures — and then doubling down and promising to do more of the same in a second term. It’s getting really old.

bayview on October 16, 2012 at 5:37 PM

We need to make a little effort to deflate BClinton’s credibility. The best way to do that is to suggest his honesty is in doubt. And the best way to do that is to reprise his Monica Lewinsky performance where he said infamously “… and I want you to listen to me” while he pointed his finger exactly as he did during his DNC speech, … “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky.”
That’s EXACTLY what he said in his DNC speech: “I want you to listen to me.” Replay those words together in a video (the DNC speech + the non mea culpa about Lewinsky.)

anotherJoe on October 16, 2012 at 5:38 PM

So they’re going to keep going on this huh? Way to double and then triple down on a losing argument. Look, this is an argument aimed at winning middle class voters, which just so happens to be a demographic Obama was losing even BEFORE the debate.

There’s no evidence that this attack has any real traction, and every time the left screams lier Obama sacrifices just a little more of his likability among undecided and independents.

Besides that, sending out Bill Clinton to talk about, “honesty?” Look, Clinton may be well liked due to how good the economy was during the 90′s, but even democrats consider him a less than entirely honest individual.

The takeaway is NOT the Bill Clinton is shilling for Obama …
.

… the takeaway is Bill Clinton is being sent out to try to motivate the BASE.

The $ 5 trillion tax cut, the green energy nonsense, the “Ignore the $ 1+ trillion defecit” BS – none of it worked during the last debate, so why the Big Push again?

The difference between the SCOAMF losing the election and an Election Tsunami that makes 2010 look like a wave in a kiddy pool is going to be turnout of the BASE.

The BASE kind of sort of accepts/believes the BS being peddled.

But they are not fired up over it.

… and you could see wholesale destruction of Democratic machines across the country.

burrata on October 16, 2012 at 5:55 PM

This 5 trillion thing is a totally ineffective and clumsy attack by the Dems. I just don’t understand why they keep pushing it. I thought Axelrod was smarter than this.

First of all, 5 trillion is a number beyond most people’s ability to comprehend. When you quote such a large number, an average person’s mind just goes blank and it won’t register. It would work better if they narrowed it down to a specific small amount that people can understand, for example, “Mitt Romney is going to make your taxes go up $2000 a year”, etc.

Second, the attack is phrased clumsily. What exactly does “5 trillion cost to the middle class” mean? It’s so vague and unspecific, obviously intended to just stir panic and fear out of ignorant people.

tkyang99 on October 16, 2012 at 5:55 PM

If Obama throws out the “subsidies to Big Oil” baloney, Romney ought to challenge him to list of the top 5 “subsidies” that he is talking about and that he would get rid of. First, I would bet the Obama wouldn’t have a clue. There is no list. It’s a talking point only, and by challenging him to produce the list his talking point would explode in his face. Second, if he does surprise me and is able to come up with such a list, Romney should ask him why he has been in office for nearly four years and still has done nothing to eliminate them. In which case, he is exposed (even more) as a do-nothing, empty suit, vacant chair President.

I always thought that Bill-n-Hill were just in it for their own gain and lust for power — but now I’m beginning to think that they both must be True Believers, too.

Or, as other commenters have said, someone is holding something really big over them, though I can’t imagine what that would be. Bill lied under oath and got away with it, surviving impeachment. What dirt could anyone, even George Soros or some other Illuminatus we’ve never even heard of and never will, have on Bill or Hill that could bring about a result worse than that?

Or maybe they both just really, really hate Romney.

Obamacare represents 20 new taxes, 12 of which are directed specifically at the middle class.

Obamacare directs that an additional $625 billion in new revenues ( AKA TAXES), above and in addition to the $716 Billion already to be cut from Medicare, be raised to provide for those 30 million new enrollees, all of whom are healthy, working age adults, and of that $625 Billion a full $500 Billion will come from those making $120,000/yr or less.

These are REAL, planned, taxes, already written into the legislation “Affordable Care Act” duly passed by Democrats in congress without a single Republican vote, and signed into law by President Barack Obama.

This only pertains to the tax increases related to ObamaCare already passed. This does not entail future taxes related to ObamaCare, nor does it entail all the other tax raises already being discussed by Democrats in congress including raising the Medicare deduction from wages, as well as raising Social Security deductions from wages, both of which will hit the middle class and working poor very hard.

Even if the Democratic inner circles have already written Obama off as a loss, they are seriously interested in mitigating the damage done this election to the Democratic Party as a whole.

The brand itself is in jeopardy. The record of failure after failure of the last four years, including the rank arrogance and hubris, openly attacking the American people when they dared disagree with the ideology or the agenda, has been a disaster of monumental proportions.

Should Romney/Ryan win in a massive landslide, combined with the trouncing the Democrats took in the 2010 midterms, the Democrat brand stands to be seriously damaged, potentially well beyond 2016.

However, if the Romney/Ryan win can be contained, kept within a narrower margin, the case might be made that it was Obama’s failure and that of his immediate administration and those ‘czars’, rather than the entire party, and the party ideology. The inner circle are hoping to be able to, at least, salvage a viable chance at 2016.

My sense is that the party is desperate to garner every single vote that it can, even if they lose, for this very reason. The Clinton’s are ‘foundation stock’ for the Democrats. They’ve been around for decades. Bill was their last popular President. Their presence on the trail at his point is NOT meant to excite the Independents. It is meant to salvage and motivate as much of the base as they can to keep that margin of defeat as narrow as possible.

Hiding behind Hillary.

Hiding behind Bill.

We need a president who will stand on his own two feet.

RAAAAACIST!

You can’t expect a half-white President to stand on his own two feet!

Well that does it, I am voting for Barky.

BillyJeff is the most trustworthy serial rapist and perjuror in America.

Folks keep speculating on the Terrible Doom that The Clintons will visit on Barky, but frankly, I’m starting to really wonder if Bill has anything left. Maybe a diseased coronary artery wasn’t the only thing they removed from him with that surgery…

Maybe Bill could explain to us idiots what the King’s plan is.

Yup. And Bill wasn’t asked to stump for Obama.

Seems your link is ginned-up fiction.

Yours seems to have issues also.
