Former President Bill Clinton addressed the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night during the NFL kickoff game on NBC. Here is Clinton’s complete, unedited speech:

  1. It’s nice that everyone with kindred spirit talks at these conventions. The only thing I find a bit distressing is that Obama needing consolation through Bill Clinton. I feel as though he and his wife are holding his hand so to speak and he can’t stand on his own two feet or lead.

  2. Great meaningfull speech. And he was/is right! The mess Bush left us could not have been fixed quickly even if he had had a cooperative congress in place of the Nay Sayers he was stuck with who were determined to make him a one term preasident.

    • I am sure Fox will find many inconsistencies or have truths in the speech. They will dissect meticulously every portion of it to find them all. And also will misconstrue, take out of context some, purposely, to serve their alternative narrative. The real questions I ask myself are:

      Is a successful individual more important than the workers he employs? Could he be as successful without the workforce, technology, the infrastructure created by others, and the sweat of those who have a great effort, contributing in to that success? Does he really do it alone?

      Are we really the United States when we can’t Unite? Do we have a real Union? If so, how come only one side seems trying right or wrong, but the other is only opposing everything regardless. Celebrating any failure as if that helped any.
      What should we do about those who put party before country?

      I don’t agree with many Obama’s policies. I don’t like some at all. But I’ll be damned if I ever wish or hope for his failure, because it is my country too.

      • Steve:

        I’d like to see what they say. I went over Clinton’s prepared speech, and it was phrased in a way that is never really “wrong.”

  3. Dr. K:

    Bubba is just the biggest gun in the political arsenal these days. He’s more popular now than when he was in office. More popular than any other living politician. Even 50% of Republicans give him a positive rating.

    Likewise, Hilary is more popular than ever.

    Vanity Fair calls these his top ten adlibs:
    10. “Are you listening Ohio and Michigan?”
    9. “This Republican narrative, this alternate universe. . .”
    8. “It passes the arithmetic test and more important, it passes the values test.”
    7. “We gotta deal with this before it deals with us.”
    6. “Democracy does not have to be a blood sport.”
    5. “The old economy is not coming back.”
    4. “Now you’re having a good time but this is getting serious and I want you to listen.”
    3. “This is personal to me.”
    2. George Washington was accused of being a “surveyor with a bad set of wooden false teeth.”
    1. “You got to admit, it takes some brass to attack a guy for what you did.”

  4. DNC=RNC=CCCP

    Great speaker, DNC deserves him: Bill Clinton, who Bombed the Christian Nation Serbia’s Capital Belgrade — killing Christians to save Muslims…?…or his OWN SKIN from the Monika Lewinsky Scandal’s media scrutiny!

    The last time an European Capitol was bombed was in WW2 by Hitler!

    Slick Willy did one better — BOMB them on their Orthodox Easter Sunday! (After all, they were only Christians…so, no-one could Politically Correctly object to Christians getting the shaft, since even having a Christmas Tree was not approved)! The BIG NO-NO was US warring on Muslim Hollidays (OK to kill Christians on Easter, but NOT OK to kill Muslim Terrorists on Ramadan…)!

    Ron Paul — the Greatest American of the 21st Century!

    Dr. Paul started the peaceful Intellectual Revolution — to save our Nation from a false US Government that has FINALLY declared that We, The People, are NOW considered “their Enemy” (not some rag-tag band of crazy Muslims they want us to think have a chance to cross thousands of miles of oceans in… rowboats… to INVADE US)!

    Ron Paul started it — and We, The People, will finish it!

    True Ideas never die — so eventually — Bye, bye, NWO wannabe despots (NOW, We, The People, know WHO YOU ARE…and WILL END YOU)!

  5. A) Mitt Rmoney must NEVER win!
    B) Mitt Rmoney must NEVER win!
    C) Mitt Rmoney must NEVER win!
    D) Mitt Rmoney must NEVER win!
    E) Mitt Rmoney must NEVER win!
    F) Mitt Rmoney must NEVER win!
    ………………..

    G-Z) Mitt Rmoney must NEVER win!

    Is my message clear…or have I missed something — such as:
    Mitt Rmoney MUST NEVER WIN!
    ——————————————————-

    Mitt Rmoney must be punished for his Anti-American actions in getting the GOP to Lie, Cheat and commit Fraud on his behalf!

    DO NOT VOTE for this subhuman Creature — Cheater Mitt — or you’ll reward it for its PERFIDY!

  6. DNC=RNC=CCCP

    “The GOP is smarter than we” and so are the Democrooks!

    While, We The People, have hopes of saving our Nation — THEY, the GOP Elite, and DNC have none.

    We are idealistic — believers that Truth, Liberty and Justice will eventually prevail, thus saving US from imminent economic collapse and the loss of all freedoms!

    The GOP Establishment has no such illusions — THEY want to assure that ONLY THEY and THEIR OWN have first dibs on the choices pieces of meat, when the carving of the American People starts. THEY do not want rejuvenation of the Republican Party, nor is stagnation enough — PURGING is needed, so THEY are first in line to pick our bones clean when the economic collapse starts. (Same goes for the Dems in power).
    ——————————————————————————-

    We, the Real American People (the producers), are the HOST — and THEY, the Non-Producers, are the Parasites!

    While the Host was strong and healthy in the past — the parasites fed well with little notice on OUR loss.

    But, NOW the Parasites have become GREATER than the HOST — meaning in order to survive, THEY have to suck MORE blood out of US than we can produce for ourselves, let alone THEM.

    Realizing this, THEY are preparing the road ONLY for THEMSELVES and THEIR OWN to strip our carcass clean (after they’ve sucked US dry).
    ————————————————————————

    Now, back to working two jobs Real Americans, so you can produce some more to feed THEM longer…until THEY are finally ready to send you to the glue factory… (“Animal Farm” by George Orwell).

    ————————————————————————————–

    NEVER vote for the Mitt — this creature is an American Destroyer!

  7. How STUPID does the GOP Establishment think US to be — not to SEE that “the vote” to pass despotic “rule” 16 (a) (2) WAS ALREADY PROGRAMMED A DAY AHEAD OF THE ACTUAL VOTE—Therefore, their Teleprompter ALREADY “KNEW” the “Aye” vote, BEFORE IT WAS SOLICITED!

    DO NOT VOTE for the Mitt — The Creature that BOUGHT the RNC and GOP!

    Punish this Anti-American by refusing to support IT!

    (pause at 2:00 and advance to 2:05 to SEE This RNC Perfidy) — spread this 2 minute video!

    • Surfisher:

      I agree. The vote at the GOP convention was, basically, a vote to suspend the rules. It was necessary, since the rule said that the DELEGATES have the power. But now, delegates no longer have any power at all. The ruling junta may make any rules it wants from here on in.

      There should be a lawsuit by delegates, who were wrongly stripped of their rights and their authority. There is video of the proceedings. Delegates clearly did NOT approve of the rules change, and since they were supposed to have that authority in this matter, a court would rule the rule changes invalid–since it DID cause substantive harm.

    • Qvo Vadis America…?

      “Whither goest thou?” — to be reduced to Vote for a Mexican Mormon or a Muslim-trained Kenyan…?

      No Real Americans (that built this Nation)…left…what a “Brave New World”….

  8. I am sure Fox will find many inconsistencies or have truths in the speech. They will dissect meticulously every portion of it to find them all. And also will misconstrue, take out of context some, purposely, to serve their alternative narrative. The real questions I ask myself are:

      Ratings: Bill Clinton scores for Democrats, edging NFL and Republicans
      by Jeff Labrecque

      With the National Football League season’s first game on NBC, the Democrats were battling more than just the Republicans on Wednesday night — at least in the ratings war.

      And while more than 20.5 million viewers tuned in to watch the Giants and the Cowboys face off, Bill Clinton’s speech drew virtually an identical amount, 20.6 million — though he couldn’t match Michelle Obama’s television audience from Day 1.

      Moreover, for the second night in a row, the Democrats edged the Republicans in the number of eyeballs that tuned in to this year’s conventions. (Twenty million people tuned in to see Paul Ryan give his convention speech last week.)

    • TWITTER:

      According to Twitter, Clinton racked up 22,087 tweets per minute – below the 28,000 seen for first lady Michelle Obama during her address in Charlotte, North Carolina on Tuesday, but beating Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s 14,289 tweets per minute last week by a large margin.

      [Of course, Clinton was speaking in the position that should be compared to Ryan, not Romney. Another site said Ryan barely only briefly beat 5,000 tweets per minute.]

      Clinton’s Twindex score, which measures how Twitter users feel about a political person on a scale of 1 to 100, rose from 59 to 70 immediately after his 49-minute address.

    • *Logical Repercussions After the 2012 Presidential Selection*

      (listed by the most likely outcome — note: ‘Selection’ since no longer can our votes be termed ‘Election’)
      —————————————————————————————-

      1) The BO wins — and further tries to plunge our Nation under its Socialist Programs aimed to completely destroy our Economy and Liberties. However, most of its teeth have been pulled by the Republicon wins in 2010, and some more of the same in 2012 — so, it is nearly toothless, if it wins the Selection.

      [[Remotely possible worst case scenario — it, the BO, declares Marshall Law in the near future (under some pre-planned “catastrophe” already home-cooked by it, and its sycophantic staff), thus trying to emerge as the “Benevolent” Dictator of USA to “save US all”.]]
      ————————————————————————-

      2) The Rmoney wins — this creature has stated it will support whatever its Money Donors tell it to do! Expect the International Jewish owned Central Banks and Federal Reserve to instruct IT to attack Iran IMMEDIATELY (in order to protect Israel…from a possible, in maybe 10 years, manufacturing a single crude “atomic” bomb).

      [[Viable worst case scenario — a Rmoney win, along with the expected Republicon wins in Congress and Senate, will give the Mitt a sure boost to attack not only Iran, but Syria, and any other nation IT, the Mitt, wants, to please its Masters that Selected this creature!]]
      —————————————————————————————

      So, for ALL of you that think voting for the Lesser of Two Evils is OK — make sure you figure out which one is “LESS EVIL”!

      JUST VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE — and do not reward these creatures by acknowledging their existence!

  9. Write in Ron Paul is finally online!

    Vote and spread it like wildfire!

    partial powerful info (read all):

    “…This is a WIN-WIN strategy for all voters. It is the way to address the issues of electronic election fraud. All people desire that their votes be counted. Write-in Elections achieves this by assuring a permanent, verifiable paper trail, which is lacking in the current voting system. This is through the emphasis on the use of absentee ballots, which are photocopied, along with affidavits….”

  10. I once said “What if we all voted for Mickey Mouse”. If we all voted for some one else that would be awesome besides the ones the media is shoving in our faces.But how would you get people to all do it. Cuz if only a few did it, it would be futile.
