By Frank Byronn Glenn -- In another masterful performance and elementary political lesson, Bill Clinton succinctly described the Republicans for the pretenders, losers, and frauds that they are -- without ever saying anything harsh and nasty about them. He broke the basic political choices and policies down into pieces small and uncomplicated enough that the "hogs" could eat it.
But he captured the essence of the the way Barack Obama came into office and the game that the Republicans have played ever since in a brief little story: "The Republicans left the President an economy that was a total mess, then when he didn't fix it fast enough, the say "fire him and put us back in charge." Patently ridiculous! What has a Republican ever done to deserve to be put back in office except to benefit those poor, dumb, predatory rich and super rich campaign contributors of theirs.
He said he couldn't understand why Republicans are such haters these days. And he can't believe that after all the tries at governing -- Republicans still can't do arithmetic. Just can't figure it out! Pretty funny -- and sadly -- quite true.
