Here is Bill Clinton’s full speech from #DNC2012
In case you missed the DNC last night, and let’s be honest many did because it comes on so late; here is the full speech that former President Bill Clinton gave. It’s a long speech, but boy is it worth it. You will not be disappointed in viewing the entire video.
There are many great takeaways from his speech, but some of my favorite quotes are:
When Congressman Ryan looked into that TV camera and attacked President Obama’s Medicare savings as, quote, the ‘biggest, coldest power play,’ I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Because, that $716 billion is exactly, to the dollar, the same amount of Medicare savings that [Ryan] had in his own budget. You’ve got to give him one thing. It takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did.
President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. No President – not me or any of my predecessors could have repaired all the damage in just four years. But conditions are improving and if you’ll renew the President’s contract you will feel it.
I believe that with all my heart.
President Obama’s approach embodies the values, the ideas, and the direction America must take to build a 21st century version of the American Dream in a nation of shared opportunities, shared prosperity and shared responsibilities.
Remember, Republican economic policies quadrupled the debt before I took office and doubled it after I left. We simply can’t afford to double-down on trickle-down.
I want to nominate a man cool on the outside but burning for America on the inside. A man who believes we can build a new American Dream economy driven by innovation and creativity, education and cooperation.
