Bill Clinton knocks ‘awful legacy’ of last 8 years

“I literally from the time I met her 45 years ago ‘til we talked yesterday, she is the best change-maker I have ever known. She always finds a way to make something good happen, to make people feel empowered, to buy people into the process, to make democracy work the way the framers intended for it to work.

Now, if you don’t believe we can all grow together again, if you don’t believe we're ever going to grow again, if you believe it’s more important to re-litigate the past, there may be many reasons that you don’t want to support her.

But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that when we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her because she’s the only person who basically had good ideas will tell you how she’s going to pay for them, can be commander in chief and is a proven change maker with republicans and democrats and independents alike.”

What you didn't post.  


*Update: An aide to Bill Clinton says the legacy he was referring to was Republicans' obstructionism.

"When Republicans controlled the White House, their trickle-down approach drove our economy to the brink of a collapse. After President Obama was elected, Republicans made it their number one goal to block him at every turn," spokesman Angel Urena said in a statement. "That unprecedented obstruction these last eight years is their legacy, and the American people should reject it by electing Hillary Clinton to build on President Obama's success so we can all grow and succeed together."

I posted what USA Today posted. Take it up with them.

The update is from your link. Perhaps it wasn't there when you initially posted.

It's obvious he was referring to the idiot Republicans in Congress.  Are people really that stupid they would claim he was talking about Obama?

Of course there are those such as most here who love to forget history. Obama's first 2 years the house and Senate were controlled by dems. Yet he still couldn't get anything done.

she is the best change-maker I have ever known. Problem is, the changes she wants aren't limited to this country and she has no problem using the military to get it.

She always finds a way to make something good happen, She believes if it's good for Wall Street, etc., it's good for everyone. However, she is willing to tell them to "stop it" once in awhile. It makes for good press. She talks about going after them if their business actions appear "too risky" but never even hints at what she considers "too risky". Somehow I find it difficult at best, to believe she'd do anything that could possibly affect the income potential of her hedge-fund manager son-in-law. She has said Wall Street is afraid of her but Wall Street supports her. Yep, they're so afraid of another Clinton Presidency, they support her. Perhaps no matter what she says, they're well aware of where her loyalty and gratitude (for their monetary support) really lie.

to make people feel empowered, to buy people into the process, Yep, she's good at that, just look at the number of super delegates she obtained the support of before anyone in any state had cast a vote. Really think they weren't "bought", oh I'm sorry, "enticed"?

 to make democracy work the way the framers intended for it to work. Somehow I don't think the framers intended that the country end up being controlled by the corporate and financial elite which is comparable to the Royalty of their day and is what they fought against. Remember how she held up Exon-Mobile as such a great company, well that is until they stopped funding her foundation. Then she began calling for a probe into their dealings, something Senator Sanders had already been calling for.

We call that "damage control". Bill had a successful presidency due to that "trickle down approach".

The Clinton's do not like Obama.
