Bubba is back. Only former Bill Clinton could singlehandedly annihilate the Romney-Ryan plan to make big cuts in Medicare and Medicaid, putting the senior vote back in play. Bill Clinton put his finger on the H-bomb — the Paul Ryan budget plan. The Republicans have made a terrible mistake, going after the whmole Medicare thing and not on Obama and the economy. Well, Republican strategist Alex Castellanos said Bill Clinton’s speech may have reelected Barack Obama.
“I would recommend to my friend Paul [Begala] here, tonight when everybody leaves, lock the doors. You don’t have to come back tomorrow. This convention is done,” Castellanos said. “This will be the moment that probably re-elected Barack Obama. Bill Clinton saved the Democratic Party once, it was going to far left, he came in, the new democrats took it to the center. He did it again tonight.” Source
Bill Clinton masterfully painted a picture of an extreme Republican Party, one willing to throw the middle class and the poor under a bus for the sake of the billionaires. He acknowledged that Congressional Republicans saying: said he never managed to hate Republicans the way the far right hates Obama. All I can say about Bill Clinton’s speech is that “the roof, the roof, the roof is on fire!” Um, that carpetbagging John Sununu talked about today, I think Bill Clinton just did that to Mitt Romney and his sidekick. The most memorable line from Bill Clinton’s speech was a slam on Paul Ryan: “It takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did.”
