Bill Clinton: Obama Can Get Us Back To “Full Employment”

Bill Clinton will appear in a new television ad for President Obama’s campaign to back him up where job creation is concerned, saying he’s the candidate most likely to make it happen.

The economy has been the biggest sticking point in this election year, with voters demanding to know what each man will do about unemployment once they’re in office. Clinton says that, for him, the election is strictly about which candidate is more likely to return America to full employment.

“President Obama has a plan to rebuild America from the ground up. Investing in innovation, education and job training. It only works if there is a strong middle class. That’s what happened when I was president. We need to go with his plan,” Clinton says in the ad.

He also takes aim at the Republican party for their plan to cut more taxes on upper income people and go back to deregulation, saying “that’s what got us into trouble in the first place”.

Clinton supported Obama’s tax cuts plan a while back, appearing at a press conference with him regarding the plan.

“I just had a terrific meeting with former president Bill Clinton, and we just happened to have this as a topic of conversation, and I thought that given the fact that he presided over as good an economy as we’ve seen in our lifetimes, that it might be useful for him to share some of his thoughts,” Obama said before turning the podium over to Clinton.

During the conference, Clinton said he still spends about an hour a day trying to figure out the economy problem, even though he’s not running for any office. He also stated that even though he is in the income bracket which would benefit from the Republican’s plan, he didn’t think it was the best fit for the U.S.

    Bill Clinton is bullshiting everyone. He wants Obama to lose. He hates him and wants to get Hillary in the race in 2016 against Romney. Bill Clinton will vote for Romney.

    What has Clinton been taking? What a joke. Obama couldn’t turn the economy around if he were President for 20 years. The documentrary “2016: Obama’s America” tells us everything we need to know about this fraud and pitiful excuse for a President. I will believe Clinton when pigs fly at the Equator.

    Hey here is a great idea. Let’s bring back George Bush to run things. No wonder he was not invited to the Republican convention. Screwed things up so bad we will never reach full employment.

    While I liked Bill for eight years, Obama is a complete and utter failure. He’s never created anything but grief.

    I find it funny that President Clinton feels we need a strong middle class to help with the rebuilding of America, yet Obama is trying and succeding at destroying the middle class and the country. President Clinton gets all my respect, and there is none for the other guy.
