Bill Clinton on the Obama economy: “It’s true — we’re not fixed”

posted at 6:41 pm on October 18, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

At a campaign event for Barack Obama in Ohio earlier today, President Bill Clinton acknowledged that Mitt Romney’s main argument is, indeed, true — the economy “isn’t fixed.”

Governor Romney’s argument is, ‘We’re not fixed, so fire him and put me in.’ It is true, we’re not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man, who said in the debate, ‘I had so much hope four years ago, and I don’t now,’ I thought he was gonna’ cry — because he knows that it’s not fixed.

As the Romney camp responded shortly thereafter, the numbers are what they are, and no amount of spin on even seemingly-piddling unemployment “improvements” can change that (via the Weekly Standard):

“We agree with former President Bill Clinton.  The economy has not been fixed under President Barack Obama.  Today, more than 23 million Americans are struggling for work, poverty has increased and food stamps are at record levels.  Mitt Romney believes we can do better by creating 12 million new jobs with higher take-home pay, cutting spending to put our nation on course for a balanced budget, and actually fixing our economy.”

But here’s the real problem with President Clinton’s appeal: He’s purposefully confusing “empathizing” and “governing.” Sure, President Obama might feel very deeply for the many people who’ve lost their jobs and are struggling to make ends meet, and he probably really wants to make it easier for those people to find employment again — any non-sociopathic human being probably feels about the same way, and the rest of us don’t even have presidential elections to win. But as the results of the past four years suggest, merely wanting to fix the economy does not in any shape, manner, or form mean you have the competence to do so. President Obama knows it isn’t fixed, but he has no real second-term agenda beyond continuing the policies that have kept our economy in a state of stagnation throughout his presidency; and we’re supposed to give him “four more years!”, because he feels badly? If this, Big Bird, and binders equate to some of his top surrogates’ best available arguments in the final three weeks of the campaign, heads up, Chicago: You’ve got a problem.

Oh, blow it out your commie-bong, Bill.

The economy is “FIXED” alright – obama tried his “PLAN”, and it worked – the economy, unemployment and food stamp/welfare enrollment are exactly where obama had planned them to be at this point. EVERYTHING is proceeding, right on schedule – obama has “FIXED” America, but good.

My fellow conservatives, lets face it. Barring some massive scandal on Romney’s part (rather unlikely at this point) in a few short weeks, Obama is gonna get his arse whooped. I will predict here that he will lose virtually every state except California, and maybe even Illinois too. But do keep feeling like you have to vote or your lady parts will fall off! Win one for the Gipper!

albill on October 18, 2012 at 6:52 PM

One of the aspects of the debates that has really helped Romney is when he keeps talking about being a Republican Governor of a Liberal state, and how much he got accomplished by (don’t puke) “reaching across the aisle”.

I’ll bet a lot of low info voters who watched the debate had no idea he was the Governor of Massachusetts. In this respect, Romney is like Bill Clinton, who was a Democrat Governor of a Conservative state, who also worked well with the opposition.

This is what Centrist Independent voters were hungering for after the polarization of the Bush years. They thought Hillary would be a Centrist who could tone down partisanship. Then they bought into Obama’s post-partisan crap. Now they see Romney as a slightly Right of Center version of the slightly Left of Center Bill Clinton.

I really believe this is having an effect on the polls.

ardenenoch on October 18, 2012 at 6:52 PM

Who was the one who was gonna to cry? Barry or the one who asked the question?

bayview on October 18, 2012 at 6:52 PM

From the former President who signed welfare reform passed by a Republican Congress and cruised to re-election, to the President who undid it by Executive Order: No, it’s not fixed.

If Obama had done in 2011 what Clinton did in 1995, Romney would have as much chance as Bob Dole did in 1996.

What Clinton really meant: It’s not fixed. Let Romney try to fix it–if he can’t, Hillary will fix it in 2016.

Steve Z on October 18, 2012 at 6:52 PM

The Clintons will make you pay, Barry. You were warned. Lie down with dogs and you get fleas; in this case, that goes both ways.

We could use an administration that isn’t from Chicago, that’s for sure.

Perhaps Obama was tearful because he realizes he cannot defend his abysmal record and epic failure, has no viable plan to offer to ‘fix’ his mess, and thus, this election is already lost to him.

President Obama is doing his very best to fix the economy. Another four years under his leadership and the economy WILL be fixed.

Of course, I mean “fix” as in the same way you have a pet “fixed”.

Sure Erika. Love you mucho, but if you think a man that says “take a pain pill” and is ok with letting babies who survive abortions be put in a closet cares about anyone other than himself you are mistaken.

arnold ziffel on October 18, 2012 at 7:10 PM

you know, barry is just not the bright

Here’s what I’ll say. When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it,” Obama said per pool. “The government is a big operation and [at] any given time something screws up,” he also said, saying that he believes “you find out what’s broken and you fix it.”

so there’s barry.care, his energy policy, command and control, etc.

no sh*t barry, thnx for telling us that you want the government to control health and everything else…but yeah…it is big…someone will screw something up..and a few people will die

confusing “empathizing” and “governing.”

Obama cannot empathize…a Narcissist totally lacks that capability.

Obama cannot govern…four years have proven that. He can, however, campaign. Campaigning is not governing.

So, confusing the two is meaningless in the real world.

And, if a serving President in 2012 has to use a former President from 1994 to bolster his lagging, suffering, damaged campaign at this point…the same President who Obama and team called racist and vilified at every stop in the primaries back in 2008…you know Team Obama is left with very few straws to grasp.

Pork-Chop on October 18, 2012 at 7:01 PM

He has no use for Obama either. That’s been clear for a while. It’s just he’s too gutless to do as he should have months ago, stand tall and cross the aisle for Romney.

So instead, he chose another option – to endorse Obama full-on and position himself as the one who saved a 2nd term for 0, and now owns him. Of course, Zero is so incompetent that isn’t panning out, and such an indifferent piss-poor leader that the buck stopped with Hillary instead, so now he’s going a different route – subtle sliming while maintaining the facade of loyal party man.

It’s the gutless way out that keeps him in the party of cowards and backstabbers working as a coward and backstabber (even if at times like this, he’s doing so to our benefit). If he endorsed Romney fully, he’d go down in history as a centrist who fought for the strength of his nation rather than his party. But that’s not in his nature. Before the accolades from historians would come 20 years of being called a traitor by all of his liberal friends and cronies, and his ego would never allow that.

160 more bumps in the road.
Starting to sound like a rumble strip…obummer car going off the road…ditch ahead.

rampage classified as an act of terrorism.

A coalition of 160 victims and family members released a video Thursday detailing what happened at the Texas military base on Nov. 5, 2009, and why they believe it was a terror attack.
The coalition has the support of two Congressman from Texas, who wrote a letter this month to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta asking for the designation.(More…)

Thx Canop.
“rampage classified as an act of terrorism”

It should have been from the get go. Unbelievable it wasn’t and this is a fight years later by the victims..disgrace.

Yea, but I suspect that will end just as soon as Huma tries to kill Hillary for Homosexuality…

Here is a secret, lezzbeeaanism is quite prevelant among the hijabi-niqabi-burka community . Just as bacchabazi is among the

In my fantasy, Romney comes out Monday night and, first thing, says, “you’re not gonna cry again, are ya?”

SailorMark on October 18, 2012 at 7:07 PM

You could almost believe Mitt would do it based on his prior performances.

I tell you, I’m amazed at how aggressive Mitt has been in the debates. I never dreamed he would not only stand up to these sniveling jerks, but actually press for advantage. And he does with a perfect balance of respect and even humor. It’s great to see a Republican that actually wants to WIN.

I used to call Mitt a milquetoast. I apologized after the first debate and I apologize again. He’s definitely acting with more spine than any GOP candidate I can remember with the exception of Reagan.

He’s purposefully confusing “empathizing” and “governing.”

Honestly, I think Bill just wanted to call the President a crybaby.

Gotta say…I had serious doubts too…..thought we’d have to continually beat on him to keep him right.

I’m not as worried anymore…..and I’m impressed by the way he’s so elloquently shattered the bammie fantasy in the debates.

Tim_CA on October 18, 2012 at 7:41 PM

Forgive me if this has been stated in previous comments, but I’m exhausted and haven’t read thru them all…

Clinton’s isn’t confusing anything…He’s undermining ever so cleverly and passive aggressively…

… or something.

I think Bill misunderstood Obama’s facial expression.
What I saw on Obama’s face had nothing to do with empathy–more like suppressed rage and total contempt.

Bill got mixed up. Obama almost cried when Romney was pounding his failed presidency. It was brutal.

Awsome……

SHARPTOOTH on October 18, 2012 at 7:57 PM

This is too perfect. Slap an “I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message” and we’re good to go.

Don’t cry B9, Sparky is here for you.

SparkPlug on October 18, 2012 at 8:07 PM

When Bill says “he” looked like he could cry, he mean the guy asking the question. Remember the debate, that guy DID look like he was going to cry. Not Obama.

Mayday on October 18, 2012 at 8:13 PM

No one–no one–does passive aggressive stabs in the back like Bill Clinton.

MidniteRambler on October 18, 2012 at 8:17 PM

There is so much skullduggery in the mind of Bill Clinton.

If he were my friend, I would never turn my back on him.

What am I saying? He would never be my friend.

Dack Thrombosis on October 18, 2012 at 7:37 PM

Yep, give Mitt props. He went to the debate and kicked ass.

I don’t think Obama has ever faced a real businessman in his life. He’s had the crony capitalists that prance around him asking for handouts. No wonder he has contempt for businesspeople.

Mitt is the first high-octane guy he’s ever had to handle and Mitt had no mercy. At the end of the first debate, Obama wanted his mommy.
