FACT: BILL CLINTON AND LARRY SUMMERS AGREE WITH OBAMA ON BUSH TAX CUTS
"In recent interviews, President Clinton and former White House economic adviser Larry Summers agreed with President Obama that Congress should not extend the Bush tax cuts for wealthy households. But Fox News distorted their comments to falsely claim that Clinton and Summers are in favor of extending them for all households, and thus are "at odds" with Obama."
Clinton Spokesperson: Clinton "Does Not Believe The Tax Cuts For The Wealthiest Americans Should Be Extended Again." After media reports misconstrued Clinton's comments, spokesperson Matt McKenne said in a statement:
Two questions have been raised regarding President Clinton's interview on CNBC today. First, on extending the Bush tax cuts, as President Clinton has said many times before, he supported extending all of the cuts in 2010 as part of the budget agreement, but does not believe the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans should be extended again.
In the interview, he simply said that he doubted that a long-term agreement on spending cuts and revenues would be reached until after the election.[CNBC.com, 6/5/12]
Bill Clinton despises BHO and he is 100% behind Romney. Clinton's staff is saying that Bill is old and doesn't know what he is saying but you and I both know old Bubba is sharp and he is more moderate than anything. One more thing the Clinton's are the original 'birthers'. They both know BHO is illegal. LOL the libtards are melting down like the Toyko reactors.

Bill Clinton's even more of a reTHUGlican than Obama, but like the latter supports neoliberals and their "solutions" to the recession - thugs like Rubin (his former Treasury Sec'y), Sommers, Geithner, etc.

NOTHING would change if Romney took office, other than perhaps even more dedication to the failed, neoliberal, Hooverite "solutions" to our economic problems and another catastrophic economic meltdown and return to recession.

Bottom line - it makes little difference who's in charge, the economy isn't going to get better. We've learned NOTHING from economics and are doomed to repeat past mistakes.

Why not? We deserve it. We're stupid and elect stupid leaders.

We're not stupid enough to elect socialist leaders that have killed Greece, Spain and many countries in Europe. Oh wait, they're all rich in Cuba!! LMAO

Tell me something Harvey. WHY have the American people NOT learned how the economic system operates? You seem to have reversed your position. Why is that? Are you fed up with BO BS too? What do you purpose as a viable solution to the political process?

Right...a few million will definitely erase a 14 trillion dollar debt. Right, skippy? It's the spending, stupid.

Bill Clinton the darling of the DEMS has given his full support to Mitt Romney! Clinton is fed up with the likes of BHO, Pelosi, Reid and all those moron libturds who have this country in utter turmoil. Clinton knows we need to restore our economic system and that will be one huge chore given what BO has sunk us into. Anyone V who votes for BHO should be deported to Kenya immediately. There is a plus to this because we know that a percentage of the brain dead will cast a vote for BO however if we deport these 'tards' we no longer have to support them with welfare, food stamps and all the other freebies they leech off the working people of this once great REPUBLIC!
Vote for Mitt and scuttle the shyt!

Billy "THE STAIN" Clinton is acting just like a Vice President in campaign mode. So far he has the Biden 'foot in mouth syndrome'. Not because he is an idot. Because he is finally TELLING THE TRUTH.
Last week the impeached, disbarred former President was photographed in Monaco with a PORN STAR on each arm. Pure low-life as always, Billy Jeff.
LOL! Yes, and just as well when lady goo goo gaga verbally groped bubba last year in front of Chelsey and Hillary, such role models for the family you'd think the divorce rate would be even higher and now in some states you can teach same sex antics to young schoolchildren, aka future progressives. Now I'm not a holy roller but I believe we were warned of this in the distant past, the arrogance of some sexual indigents. The more ya think about it all it is pretty damn frightening, don't ya think?
Peace.
