Bubba to the rescue...if I was smart enough to figure out how to I would have the William Tell overture playing with this thread................................ RealClearPolitics - Video - Obama Ditches Tax Cut Presser After Bill Clinton Takes Control I am curious how all of the leftists , liberals or any who are peeved at Obama for being to conciliatory to the Republicans feel about him finally doing what he should have done a long time ago ,call Bubba! I gotta say, I was just thinking the other day how much this current dem crowd has made the Clintons look like wise upstanding statesman,even Hillary.

OMG. What a public humiliation for obama, having to call in Bill Clinton to bolster his arguments. Is this fraud so out of his league, so weak that he can't even manage on his own?

Former President Bill Clinton gave a statement after his meeting with President Obama about his tax compromise with the Republicans.

However, after his statement, Clinton began to call on and take questions from the press with Obama at his side. Obama promptly after a few moments and said he had to see Michelle, as he was keeping her "waiting."
So he left bill to take over for him?

OMG, this is beyond embarrassing.

Clinton raised taxes on the wealthy and lowered them on the middle class. What's not to like? It was economically, very effective.

In terms of economic stewardship Bill Clinton is easily the best President we had in the last 30 years bar none.

Even with his pants wrapped around his ankles.....he was a MUCH better President than Bush or Obama.

A difference, though, is Clinton had a Congress made up of members who knew that you had to compromise to accomplish anything. Obama doesn't, in large measure. Just look at the folks on here, from both sides, who are "NO COMPROMISE! WE'LL DIE ON THE BARRICADES FIRST!!" types.

I'm starting to think Bill Clinton is co-president of the United States.

Raising taxes doesn't help the economy- just the opposite. Clinton benefited from the Internet boom.
