Bill Clinton’s Speech Liveblog

I will be liveblogging BillJeff’s speech from the DNC.

**BEGIN**

-Nice touch with “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow”…yeah…let’s return to the glory days of 1992…

-He has probably said “Thank You” about 15 times

-His appearance on stage is like a bad 90s redux

-“Sit. Down!”  (wonder if he ever said that to Monica…)

-“Please stop…please sit…please sit…” (“)

-“I am here first to support Barack Obama” (yeah….sure)

-“And second…I’m here to warm up the crowd for Joe Biden.” (bad mental images) “I love Joe Biden”

-“That campaign generated so much heat, it increased global warming”

-Praising Hillary…yada yada yada…get a room…

-I have to speak “in the wake of Hillary’s magnificent speech last night”

-“The American Dream is under siege at home”

-Drama about economic issues…

-“Our position in the world has been weakened” yada yada yada 

-“A refusal to lead on global warming” has just what to do with world conflicts?

-“He has shown a clear grasp of our foreign policy and national security challenges”

-“The long, hard primary tested and strengthened him” (teehee)

-“On his selection of a running mate, he hit it out of the park” (but he could have had a Grand Slam with Hillary)

-“Barack Obama’s proven instincts…and insight” (*cough* RezkoWrightAyers *cough*)

-Obama will help on the fight against “AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria” (like Bush hasn’t done that?)

-“A President Obama will choose diplomacy first and military use as a last resort” (like Bush hasn’t done that?)

-“When he cannot convert adversaries into partners, he will stand up to them” (I’m sure the Islamists are quaking in their boots…no wonder they’re afraid of conversions…)

-“Republicans have given us…the biggest increase in income inequality in the 1920s” (Hillary nodding demonically)

-“unlimited favors for the well-connected” (uhhh…you have no room to talk)

-“What about Katrina and cronyism?” (Ray Nagin and Kathleen Blanco, call your offices)

-“Yes he can, but first we have to vote for him”

-“He loves his country every bit as much as we do”

-“right-wing orthodoxy”

-“He still embraces the extreme philosophy that has defined his party for more than 20 years”

-“To all of the Americans that aren’t all hardcore Democrats as we” (Basically…to all Americans)

-“They took us from a record surplus” to debt…(didn’t this recession happen during the Dem Congress?)

-“They actually want us to reward them for the last 8 years with 4 more” 

-“Thanks but no thanks,” “In this case, the third time is not the charm”

-Drawing parallels between 1992 and 2008, “Republicans said I was too inexperienced to become Commander-in-Chief” (well, since we’re cleaning up after your problems now…you were)

-“Senator Obama’s life is a 21st century incarnation of the American Dream” (la la la Obamaworship la la la)

-“Barack Obama will lead us out of the division and fear of the last eight years” (let’s rhyme!)

-“If you believe America should always be a place called Hope” (its 1992!…I mean…uhhh…2008)

-U2’s Beautiful Day
