On day two of the Democratic National Convention, the crowd is more than excited to welcome former President Bill Clinton. One of the most captivating public speakers that the United States has to offer, had some powerful rebuttals to the Republican National Convention.
“Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac played loudly as the crowd roared for Clinton’s entrance.
Clinton referred to Barack Obama as a man who is, “Cool on the outside, but who burns for America on the inside.”
Clinton praised Obama for overcoming adversity, and for knowing that no matter how many jobs he has saved and created, there would still be more to do.
Clinton also commended Obama for having the, “good sense to marry Michelle Obama.” The audience applauded as Michelle blushed.
Clinton declared that, “’We’re all in this together’ is a far better philosophy than ‘you’re on your own.’”
“Though I often disagree with republicans, I’ve never learned to hate them,” he said contrasting with the way he believes extreme Republicans burn with hate.
Clinton claimed that republicans view compromise as a weakness, and, “What is good politics does not necessarily work in the real world.”
Although the republicans convinced Clinton of some of their values, he said, “They want to go back to the same policies that got us into trouble in the first place.”
He explained that the republicans have had office for 28 years and the democrats have had office for 24, however, the republicans have only created 24 million private sector jobs in comparison to the democrats who have created 42 million.
As a President that much of America applauds, Clinton clearly stated that, “President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did.”
He followed this with, “No president could repair the damage that he found in just four years.”
Clinton began many sentences with, “Here’s what actually happened,” referring to recent Republican attacks. He quoted them to say, “We are not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers,” and the audience erupted into laughter.
He also addressed the wonders that he believes Obama has done for education, health care, and private sector jobs.
“We cannot simply give the reins of government to someone who will double down with trickle down,” Clinton said. “If you want a winner take all, you’re on your own society,” then you should vote republicans.
When it comes to his faith in President Barack Obama’s potential, Clinton said, “I believe it. I believe it with all my heart.”
