Clinton Energizes Obama Supporters in Akron

According to local media outlets, former President Bill Clinton brought Obama supporters to their feet at the John S. Knight Center in downtown Akron on Thursday night.

It appears former President Bill Clinton can still wield some political thunder. 

At least, that's how local media coverage described Clinton's rally at Akron's John S. Knight Center on Thursday night.

In the home stretch to Election Day, Clinton brought hundreds of folks to their feet as he focused on job creation and the auto industry.

Here's the roundup: 

The Plain Dealer: Clinton touted Obama's multi-billion dollar auto bailout, saying the President's efforts created 200,000 new jobs versus losing 1 million. With that, he received one of many roars from the audience. 

Fox 8 News: Clinton criticized Romney for his vagueness on balancing the budget and rejecting the auto bailout. Clinton charged that, if elected, Romney would hinder growth of the middle class and take credit for creating jobs that Obama "set the stage for."

The Press-News: Clinton said he was confident that voters would dismiss Romney's "bogus" campaign ads and support Obama's lengthy record to swing Ohio in the President's favor.

Am I really to understand and agree because Bill Clinton says so... Bill Clinton was disbarred from practicing law in Arkansas and was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court over the Lewinski incident. He also paid a $25,000.00 fine over the Lewinski incident. He also paid an $850,000.00 settlement over the Lewinski incident. He was also fined $90,000 for giving false testimony in the Paula Jones case. So Bill Clinton, a disbarred lawyer, a President who was fined for lying under oath, asks the American people to believe him when he says the best thing for the Country is 4 more years of Obama. Just wanted to make sure I had it right!

With Clinton out supporting Obama, have you been wondering where George W has been? Now we know the reality about where George W has been hiding these days. He has been lecturing about moving money off shore to the Caymans, but don't expect details, as they have a "blackout" on the details from his speech there last night: http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/02/14875519-blackout-imposed-as-george-w-bush-speaks-at-cayman-islands-investment-conference And not getting any love from the Texas press over it: http://dallasmorningviewsblog.dallasnews.com/2012/11/bushs-top-secret-cayman-islands-speech-youre-welcome-america.html/ Guaranteed, next year's keynote speech will be from "former GOP presidential candidate; Mitt Romney."

melas, thank you for sharing your thoughts here. I recently listened to both of Obama's books on audio. It was a hard listen but only due to the fact that I am a bit tired of listening to Obama every single day after four plus years. What I found though is that Obama speaks a great game in these books as they were released before his election in 2008. I also tend to believe that Obama had good intentions from what I learned from him. As Presidents often do, Obama has admitted that being President is different than running for the position. There is a lot more that you find outside of your ability to change. I think America has become so defensive to the other party (left or right) that we all are jaded. I am a white male and I for one do not see RACE when I see and hear Obama. If one is white, black, both or other and stereotypes Obama due to his skin tone, that person is totally missing the big picture. Barack Obama doesn’t plot to overthrow or help anyone in particular. What Obama feels and does, he believes it to be for the common good of all. I truly believe this. I do on the other hand disagree with his beliefs on many issues as Liberals disagree with many Conservative views. We can all point out failures of the other side but both sides fail to please everyone. I will be voting Right Wing Nut Case again this year as I always do but if Obama wins, I will be changing plans for my future as I believe we all should. Hang on. It’s going to be a rough ride.
