Bill Clinton defends John McCain

Barack Obama will be furious when he sees this. PUMA!

On top of that, he's blaming the current financial crisis on the Democrats!

Going very much against the media meme that the current financial crisis is all George W. Bush and the Republicans' fault, Bill Clinton on Thursday told ABC's Chris Cuomo that Democrats for years have been "resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was President to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac"

Of course, John McCain tried to put through a reform bill in 2005 that was -- shockah! -- blocked by Dems. President Bush issued multiple warnings this year -- 17, actually.

But of course, Dems are blaming it all on President Bush and trying to push the tab on the taxpayers. At least Bill Clinton has the guts to speak the truth. If Democrats had any guts or integrity at all, they'd own up and work to actually fix the problem without sticking the taxpayers with the bill.

Son of a Pig and a Monkey:

Love him or hate him; think the same way as him or not; I don't think anyone would say Bill Clinton is not a smart guy --although he will probably be recorded in history as a somewhat ineffectual president, who did not recognize the threats the country was facing (African embassies, WTC version 1). But, he got impartial props through being a Rhodes scholar (as opposed to an Ivy League affirmative action case) and that should be recognized. Finally, I think you get the image that Clinton is an American, and loves America (unlike Jimmy Carter and Obama).

McCain went to Washington a... (Below threshold)
John S:

McCain went to Washington and was instrumental in killing the Paulsen bill, a legislative proposal that was reviled by a majority of Americans. While Obama dithered, McCain bet his chance to be president on killing a bad piece of socialism. Interesting thing about McCain: Once again he's willing to risk it all on principle. It's called guts. The overcautious Bambi will never understand that.

I could be way off here ... (Below threshold)

I could be way off here but I got the image alright. I see Clinton recently going out and saying positive things about McCain which are facts. If history repeats itself it is for the Clinton's own interests though. Perhaps hoping or encouraging so Hillary voters vote for McCain (who obviously is much more qualified than O) with the hope in a few years for Hillary to run again. This approach is ok with me. Doesnt mean Hillary will be selected or win. But this is certainly good. Keep to kudos coming to McCain.
