“We left him a total mess, he hasn’t cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in”

Bill Clinton said referring to the Republican message 2012. Yes, it does sound clever doesn’t it?

Bill Clinton is a good speaker and has a good speechwriter – I often wonder how much they write themselves. As I did listening to Michelle Obamas speech yesterday I feel we do need these speeches right now – clever people with charisma with a somewhat good message anyway. And words like “cooperation”, “share” and “together” were mentioned many times.

Another favorite passage in the speach was “The Republican narrative is that all of us who amount to anything are completely self-made. One of our greatest Democratic chairmen, Bob Straus, used to say that every politician wants you to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. As Straus then admitted, it ain’t so.”
