Bill Clinton in defense of Barack Obama — again

If you’re a Democrat, you’ll like Bill Clinton’s analysis of last week’s presidential debate:

On the other hand, there’s something oddly familiar and disquieting about his choice of this phrase: “Who are you going to believe — me or your lying eyes?”

Why does the AJC think the American People are that stupid to believe this election will be close. Where has the AJC been the last 4 years when the GOP declared war on the American People who elected President Obama in a landslide victory in 2008. Where was the AJC during the 2010 mid-term elections when the GOP unleashed the homegrown terrorist group(s) known as the “tea party” (klansmen, skinheads, militia’s, birthers, etc.) against the American People (elderly, women, minorities, gays & lesbians, Muslims & Jews, etc.). The American People heard the GOP/tea party call to battle (take back my country) and saw the majority of poor, uneducated, disenfranshised White Americans embrace the GOP/tea party as a protest vote against the American People for electing the first Black American President of the USA. God Bless America….Thank You God for President Obama.

“Who are you going to believe — me or your lying eyes?”

Hmmm . . . let me see.

Do I believe Clinton, the serial philanderer (wasn’t that the words you wacko leftists used to describe Gingrich?), or do I believe “my lyin’ eyes”.

Not even close! I’ll go with my lyin’ eyes!

I know which way you wackos will go . . .

Now now, what laws have your “home grown terrorist group” the tea party been convicted of? Better yet, what have they beed arrested for? As for the rest of your rant, I’ll call on God too, God bless him Lord because he has lost it.

WOW!!!… look at the reactions to the truth. Only in the deep, deep, south do you hear stupid crap spewed by bigots. It is un-American to disrespect the office of the President. Calling the President names is “treason” regardless of how you feel about him. I am not comfortable around people especially ex-vets who claim to be members of the homegrown terrorist group(s) known as the “tea party”. The “tea party” weapons of choice are hatred, fear and rage/mob mentality against the American People.

Robert….stop drinking the koolaid. Just because the majority of Americans are opposed to commie-liberal socialism does NOT make them “racist”. And I thank GOD (who democrats no longer believe in, yet they will hold a party for “Allah”) that morons like you CANNOT take away our basic human rights as outlined in the U.S. Constitution’s BILL OF RIGHTS. And instead of bashing VETERANS, you might just want to thank one for protecting YOUR RIGHT, to speak your mind, no matter how ignorant YOU appear to the rest of us to be.

Thanks to liberals, the biggest cliche’s of this century will be “HATERS” (those that have an opposing viewpoint against obama’s form of socialism) and “RACIST” (those that have an opposing viewpoint against obama’s form of socialism). Please show me, or any other reader…just what U.S. LAW says that speaking against the President…is treason?

Oh but look at what the tea baggers did to the House of Representatives, they forced the so-called moderates of the Rep party to defeat each and every piece of legislation. They forced Boehner’s hand. It caused total gridlock, no new jobs, just NOTHING. And these far right my-way-or-the-highway representatives are quite happy with themselves. Something to be proud of.

No cc, both Robert and his ilk will be here..and practicing their own form of hypocracy by calling President Elect Romney every form of vile name, and openly displaying their hatred.

Robert and his fellow travellers seem to forget one thing; we had a weak socialist President before…his name was Carter. And he was soundly defeated by a landslide by Americans who voted for President Ronald Reagan, TWICE, I might add. Every time the American Voter gives the democrats a chance to redeem themselves, they utterly FAIL.

And its sad really. The party that used to support and stand for the average American sold their soul in 1968, when they kowtowed to every kook, communist, and nutjob that would fall for their promises for the sake of a vote.
