The latest angry Democrat? None other then Bill Clinton, who's apparently gone from feeling our pain to wishing to inflict some upon us:
“This shouldn’t be a race,” Clinton said. “The only reason it is, is because Americans are impatient on things not made before yesterday and they don’t understand why the economy is not totally hunky-dory again.”
Oh, impatient, are we? We just don't understand, do we? We're just simpletons who expect life to to be "hunky-dory", are we?
I don't think so, Mr. Ex-President. What's pissing you off is that we see right through your empty promises, your hollow rhetoric, and your failed policies, and no amount of your good 'ol boy bullshit can cover up the fact that your (and Obama's) liberal policy prescriptions have failed America, both domestically and abroad. So we have decided to take another direction - based on fact, reason and reality, and have ignored attempts to appeal to our emotions, pull at our heartstrings, or to divide us up by race and class. In other words - We The People have taken the high road.
So take your insults, Bill, and shove them up your ass.
What's most shocking is that the man we coined "Slick Willie" has apparently lost all his rhetorical charm and argumentative powers; save for preaching to the choir, as he did at the Democratic Convention. For now that the American people have listened to him and rejected his case, Clinton has resorted to the nasty name-calling that is more typical of the Debbie Wasserman Schultzes and Chris Matthews of the world, and has abandoned any attempt to keep his tone more in line with his beloved "elder statesman" status.
Which says a lot about Bill Clinton. And even more about the direction the 2012 race is rapidly heading in...
