Former President Bill Clinton was in Denver, Colorado, stumping for his wife yesterday and he let out a little bit of an oops. He obviously fogot that he is in the business of deception 24/7. he slipped up and told the truth. For a Clinton, this is not good.
Before I tell you what he said I would ask what is the number one issue on the minds of voters today? Yup. The economy. Fears of a slowing economy are gripping the nation.
So here comes Bill, according to ABC:
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.”
Nice. Give me a show of hands on who here thinks we haven’t seen the last of that quote. Republicans will have a field day with this one.
As ridiculous as this quote is, my main recurring thought is I’m wondering if Bill Clinton was always this clumsy and the media just didn’t report it. Or is he slipping? Either way, Bill has already been called by Hillary. They’re going to have a little talk tonight. Fun. Fun. Fun. I know. I know. Call it schadenfreude. Call it mean. In response I offer a big fat “Whatever.”
