DNC Counterprograms Itself: Bill Clinton Will Give Keynote Speech Explaining What He Did In the 90s To Make The Economy Cook, And Then Elizabeth Warren Will Explain Why We Need To Do The Exact Opposite

Before you jump on me: I don't really think Bill Clinton was a free-market reformer. I just said that effect. Certainly he was less left-wing that Obama or Warren, which should make an interesting evening, and produce the same kind of "Huh?" reaction my headline suggests.

So, first of all, Bill Clinton will have the opening slot, and if we know anything about Bill Clinton, it's that the man enjoys an opening slot.

Hey, Mitt Romney, you're dating that woman in Tennessee now. Did you like that joke?

Mitt Romney enjoyed that joke.

Brit Hume calls this a "distress call" from Obama. Vid at the link, here's some text:

The convention role being given Bill Clinton is proof that President Obama is in deep trouble and he and his political handlers know it.

Polls continue to show the race tied or Mr. Obama slightly ahead. But other surveys point distinctly in another direction. One out today from the Hill newspaper gives Mitt Romney an edge with voters on three key qualities: sharing their values, being a stronger leader and being more honest and trustworthy....

Add to that the Rasmussen survey in which voters by 62 percent to 30 said economic growth was more important to them than economic fairness....

Gallup reports that the number of Democrats who say they are more enthusiastic about voting this year is at 39 percent, down from 61 percent four years ago. 51 percent of Republicans, meanwhile, said they are more enthusiastic this year, that is up from 35 per cent in 2008.When you put all this together with the continuing bad news on the economy, you know why Mr. Obama is suddenly reaching out to Bill Clinton.

This is a distress call.

Even though Barack Obama says "You didn't build that," you know he's so egotistical that he credits himself 100% for his own (until now) success. As he said to his aides (from memory): You know, I could do your jobs better than you can.

But, if Obama wins, it will be due to Bill Clinton's intervention; and thus, whatever might be said of a second term, Obama didn't build that.

Once Clinton is done explaining how he pushed radicals and Marxists aside to say the era of Big Government is over, Elizabeth Warren will explain that rumors of the death of the era of Big Government have been vastly exaggerated, and in fact the era of Big Government is Bigger Than Ever.

Will she double-down on the "You didn't build that" rhetoric? Well, on one hand, she'll be speaking to a general audience which for some reason views the seventy year Soviet experiment with some degree of nonkulturny skepticism; but on the other hand, base turnout is the game these guys are playing (because "appealing to the country as a whole" went out the window sometime around the summer of 2009).

Clinton's role is to show people that Obama's policies work.

Nevermind that Obama's policies are far more radical than Clinton's and we're in far more debt and Obama doesn't have the serendipitous tech bubble.

7 The Left takes the furthest possible contributing cause, i.e. public infrastructure or the education a person received as a child, and elevates it to the same level (or higher) as the closest contributing cause, i.e. the individual's hard work and good ideas as an adult. This elevation is absolutely indefensible in the context of Western thought. It's like the entire history of philosophy from the Greeks onward never happened. And these people claim to be the "smart" ones?

The idea of the "individual" is the last idea to appear on the scene of history. Before that it was all down to clans, tribes, classes. That the Left wants to return to that sort of pre-individualized age is proof they are anything but "progressive".

Clinton was kind of proud of his "Don't Ask Don't Tell"....and of "his" welfare reform and balanced budgets.

Barky eliminated DADT....and those welfare reforms...with a stroke of his pen.
....And he's never even signed a budget....much less a balanced one.

[Please note the quotation marks I used on "his"...because he fought them, until he couldn't any longer...and then took credit for them.]

68 Incredible. More from Senator Harry Reid:

"His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son," Reid said, in reference to George Romney's standard-setting decision to turn over 12 years of tax returns when he ran for president in the late 1960s.

Saying he had "no problem with somebody being really, really
wealthy," Reid sat up in his chair a bit before stirring the pot
further. A month or so ago, he said, a person who had invested with Bain
Capital called his office.



"Harry, he didn't pay any taxes for 10 years," Reid recounted the person as saying.



"He didn't pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that's true?
Well, I'm not certain," said Reid. "But obviously he can't release those
tax returns. How would it look?



"You guys have said his wealth is $250 million," Reid went on. "Not a
chance in the world. It's a lot more than that. I mean, you do pretty
well if you don't pay taxes for 10 years when you're making millions and
millions of dollars."

Being in MA, I've had maybe a leetle more exposure to Lyin' Lizzie ("Ugh!") than many people have, and somehow she manages to make a favorable impression on a lot of people who don't listen (which means Democrats). She can deliver that Barbara Boxer/Hitlery Clinton <i>I really, really care</i> false sincerity when she talks about how we need to "put people back to work" like they do in China. She sounds all anxious, concerned, and ready to make things <i>right</i>. Democrats respond to that shit.

Likewise, I believe Bubba Clinton still has a lot of cred out there, and will help get the votes coming in for Bark Obama. Fuck Dick Morris; the senile fool is wrong more often than he's correct and, like his old boss Bubba, will say any damn thing as long as people pay attention to him.

Add to that the battle between the MFM on one side and the "Poppin' Fresh" eunuchs on the other, and brace yourselves for an unimaginably large avalanche of shit against Romney. That will be countered with nothing from our side, since our :forces" are better at linking what their blog-buddies say and worrying about being perceived as <i>unfair</i> or, worse, <i>racist</i> if they diss the uber-cool Choomer-in-Chief.

I fear we're about to see the U.S.A. go circling down the Porcelain Chute in November unless some of our side get their asses in gear and stop wasting time giggling about how funny it is that the third-worst president we've had is going to be working on behalf of the absolute worst.

91 When I think about President Barack Obama, the first phrase that comes to mine is: "High functioning." All things considered, he performs as well as a man such as himself could possibly be expected to do. Where is he? Where's my man Barack? There you are. How the fug ya doin'? I love this guy.

100 Lizzie Warren's speech is part of Obama's attempt to create a new Hillary Clinton and sidestep the real HC in 2016.

No matter how lousy her speech is, it will be praised to the skies by the Dims and MSM.

If Clinton were smart, this is his opportunity to knife BO for the racist smear and set up Hillary for 2016.

It won't happen unfortunately.

101 Cokie Roberts is a sack of crap, too.

I totally remember her jumping all over the racist crap slipping out of the mouths of the left even as they were wetting themselves over Obama - no, wait, sorry, she was just making up crap about Republicans, even back then, and still is now.

Somebody cut the goddamned public funding for the propaganda shills.

103 Again, the Dems' big problem is that this Warren/Clinton tag team is going on against NFL Opening Night: Giants/Cowboys.

8 of the 10 highest rated regular season games in history have featured either the Giants or Cowboys. At least 2 or 3 were Giants v. Cowboys.

Saints/Packers opening night last year did gangbuster ratings as well.

Nobody's gonna watch Convention Night 3, and even the Obama Network (NBC) won't genuflect towards him when football is available.

Revenge of the PUMAs.

Is it too much to hope for that Bill subtly knife Obama in the back with a smile on his face? Whatever else Bill is, he is smooth. He might be able to do it in a fashion that Obama wouldn't even notice. Like using a razor sharp stiletto. Obama wouldn't know what happened until he was laying on the floor bleeding (or, In Clinton's case, lying on the floor bleeding).

117 yeah, combine this with what Dick Morris says, this is a plain desperate stupid move by SCOAMF, Clinton hates Obama and should be considered a dangerous enemy, not an ally to be trusted.

Clinton could read a prepared speech exactly as Valerie Jarrett writes it, even with no apparent inflection but he has enough minions who will do nothing but compare Obama unfavorably to Clinton that that's all it would take to sink Obama.

122 @119, maybe but Uncle bill is as big of a narcissist as SCOAMF, so all uncle bill is going to do is revise his 2000 DNC convention speech in which, to para-quote PJ Orourke, he took credit for saving the dinosaurs from extinction, ending unemployment, and winning every war fought by America. And then ending it by saying, and I'm sure that if he's given another 4 years, Obama might do as well as I did because not every day in my 8 years was perfect either.

133 WSJ has an article about the Obama slogan "Forward." The whole article is about how his team debated for hours over the period. I am not making this up.

As I see it, this slogan is a gift. The majority of the country thinks we are headed in the wrong direction and nothing Zero has done has worked, and he wants to campaign on "Forward"? When I think of that I see a car going over a cliff.

Also, Politico has an article about Obama donating $5,000 to his campaign, and notes it is his first donation. They sent an email out to his list about this. I'd be pissed - this guys hitting me up for money 5 times a day and just now he contributes to his own re-election? This guy who keeps reminding us he's part of the 1%?

I dunno, maybe this stuff works with his followers. Looks not only desperate, but dumb to me.
