Former President Bill Clinton blasted the Tea Party and the Republicans while answering questions for leftists bloggers. The MSM never reported this, but Clinton met with some liberal bloggers during his annual Global Initiatives meeting in New York City a few days ago. One of the bloggers, from a site I will not mention, asked Bill a question about Rick Perry's comment that Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme. He also asked what he thought of the economic philosophy of those who align themselves with the Tea Party. It seems that Clinton blamed the Tea Party for not basing their philosophy on facts by telling the blogger:
You can stand up and say anything and nobody rings a bell if the facts are wrong. There's no bell ringing. It's crazy, we're living in a time when it's more important than ever to know things. And not just to know facts but to put them in a coherent. sensible pattern. And we live in a time, if you just want to talk about the economy, where the model that works for economic growth and prosperity is cooperation. But the model that works in politics is conflict.
Clinton Also attacked the Republicans argument that the government is spending too money and needs some dramatic cuts. Clinton went on to tell the bloggers that the most economical prosperous areas of the United States are places that look nothing like the anti-government ideal of the Tea Party crowd:
You know, there's not a single solitary example on the planet, not one, of a country that is successful because the economy has triumphed over the government and choked it off and driven the tax rates to zero, driven the regulations to nonexistent and abolished all government programs, except for defense, so people in my income group never have to pay a nickel to see a cow jump over the moon. There is no example of a successful country that looks like that.
Clinton's response to the guys question is just another of the trillion's of reasons the Democrat party is going down in flames with Obama next year. They keep belittling and attacking the members and the philosophy of the Tea Party movement, and it keeps on back firing on them big time. This is why they are in trouble with a capital "T". They just don't get it, they want to win over the independents, but the independents philosophically agree with those of us who make up the Tea Party movement. The Americans are so fed up with the left (finally) that even Greenbereg's Liberal Democracy Corps Poll released last week, shows that the Democrats are looking at a bigger defeat next year than they experienced in 2010.
OK Slickmeister, name me one country who has succeeded because of big government?
Well so much for the idea that Slick Willie was the great moderate. He and the Hildebeast were just as far Left as Obama (maybe not as radical), but they knew when to tone it down, like when he lost the governorship in Arkansas and after the 1994 mid-terms. So, it's fair to say our nation was prospering in the 1990s despite him.
Notice again, these liberals are not just content with attacking conservatives/Republicans in Congress or running for President....it's the American people who they are attacking, as has been the case for the last two and a half years.
They are in trouble, but we cannot get cocky before next November.
