Bill Clinton Echoes Barack Obama

Not a surprise, since after all, Obama's comments about Reagan were merely toned-down, less praiseworthy versions of Bill's comments about the man while he was running for president

Bill now claims that "We’ll unite this country by doing things together, that’s what’ll happen,"

This is despite Senator Clinton's divisiveness and their criticism of Obama's promise to do the same as naive.

Moreover, he's echoing Senator Obama on the job of the president.

Obama said this, and Hillary criticized him:

But I'm not an operating officer. Some in this debate around experience seem to think the job of the president is to go in and run some bureaucracy. Well, that's not my job. My job is to set a vision of 'here's where the bureaucracy needs to go.'"

Yet Bill agrees

The President is not called the Chief Executive Officer of America for nothing. You don’t run the bureaucracy but you are responsible for seeing that your ideas turn into positive changes in other people’s lives.

Perhaps he should support the candidate he seems to agree with, rather than the one he doesn't.
