(With apologies to The Who)
So the Obama campaign has let the Big Dog out.
President Bill Clinton:
“This election to me is about which candidate is more likely to return us to full employment.”
“This is a clear choice. The Republican plan is to cut more taxes on upper income people and go back to deregulation. That’s what got us in trouble in the first place.”
“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 keep going with his plan.”
Wait a second. The GOP will go back to deregulation? Isn’t this the same Bill Clinton who signed into law the Glass-Steagell Act repeal, which many (although not all) blamed for the 2007 subprime meltdown?
Then again, don’t forget Bubba O’riley’s anthem:
Out here in the fields
I farm for my meals
I get my back into my living.
I don’t need to fight
To prove I’m right
I don’t need to be forgiven.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Make that, still don’t need to be forgiven.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
P.S. Gotta do this:
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
You have to admit: the 3rd way did wonders for our friends in Asia. They’re probably still laughing.
Or at least chuckling.
