The Presidency Does Not Necessitate Class

Filed under: Politics — lmwalker @ 5:54 pm

Bill Clinton apparently considers himself a representative American and condescends to speak for the rest of us:

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton said on Tuesday that Britain’s economy, environmental policy and attempts at modernization were envied in the United States, where comparable policies under President George W. Bush were lacking.

Which policies would those be, Mr. Clinton? The ones that allow lethal factory pollution or the ones that keep 17% of the population living below the poverty line? (Note: the United States is at 12%.)

He’s a peach, that one.



  1. First Carter, now Clinton — why is it that Democrat former presidents can’t understand the meaning of former?

  2. Well, its an exclusive club, and Democrats tend to be the more outspoken members. Perhaps they weren’t coddled enough as children when they whined; hence their insecurity and need for attention. ;o)

  3. According to UC Berkeley, conservatives were the whiny kids.

  4. I guess they got it out of their system early.

  5. Hat tip to you Ms. Walker. It was sort of a covert way to bring up some other news item.

    My point being that Dems were whiny, but weren’t coddled, so they quickly learned to not whine about things and just kind of internalize it. In so doing, rather than solving the problem, they just merely pushed it off until later in life đŸ™‚
