There are times that we say things that we should not say. We are completely honest in the wrong company. You know what I mean; when no one has asked, but we volunteer our opinion. I believe this is what happened to Bill Clinton recently.
Monday in Spokane, WA, while campaigning for his wife, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton characterized President Barack Obama’s time in office as the “awful legacy of the last eight years.”
Clinton said, “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 where we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what cause the crash, then you should vote for her.”
Bill seemed to forget for a moment that the cameras were on, and all the world could hear what he was saying. But, even if we overlook that for a moment, this seems like a harsh criticism of a man that your candidate of choice served under.
Maybe he was thinking of Bush when he said that there was an “awful” legacy. Perhaps, as Bill is getting up there in age, he slipped. But is this really what you want to say? No! And there are two reasons this could not be the case.
