Looks like there’s trouble in paradise! In the last 5 weeks, former President Bill Clinton has taken 4 shots (that we know of) at [score]President Barack Obama[/score]. The latest? He’s called out the current administration’s economic legacy as “awful.”
Take a look at this:
“The problem is, 80 percent of the American people are still living on what they were living on the day before the [2008 financial] crash,” Clinton said to the audience. “And about half the American people, after you adjust for inflation, are living on what they were living on the last day I was president 15 years ago. So that‘s what’s the matter.”
Clinton has regularly lambasted the U.S. economy’s performance during Obama’s tenure as president, arguing that conditions for working Americans have not improved and have helped give rise to Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) during the 2016 presidential race.
The former president said last month at a rally in Spokane, Washington that “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 [Hillary Clinton].”
The man makes a good point. Up until the part where he suggests we replace one Democrat with liberal policies with… another Democrat with liberal policies. Thinking that might not be our most effective strategy for restoring the economy.
