UPDATE: The Jake Tapper article used as the basis for this post misconstrued/misquoted Bill Clinton’s statement. See comments below. -ed.
I wonder just how long it’s going to take someone from the Hillary campaign to smother Bill in his sleep, what with his seeming desire to tank her campaign at every conceivable turn. See, for instance, ABC News’ report from a campaign stop by Bill:
Former President Bill Clinton was in Denver, Colorado, stumping for his wife yesterday.
In a long, and interesting speech, he characterized what the U.S. and other industrialized nations need to do to combat global warming this way: “We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions ’cause we have to save the planet for our grandchildren.”
Gee, wait, I thought the (Democratically-controlled) House of Representin’ just put a whole lot of work into passing legislation to, y’know, stimulate the economy. Shouldn’t Bill (and Hillary, what with her voting position in the Senate and all) be therefore fighting against such legislation in the interests of the grandchildren? WHO WILL THINK OF THE GRANDCHILDREN!?!
It’s almost as if no one in D.C. knows a lick about basic economics. Scary, right?
I hope and pray that the American electorate collectively keeps these two chuckleheads and all their advisors, hangers-on, etc. as far as is humanly possible from the reigns of power.
