You know I heard about what former President, Bill Clinton, said the other day. I had to shake my head and perform a double take? He indirectly
supported the opposition's frontrunner. I know those on the left are gonna spin it and say it does not mean anything. Clinton is one of the Big Wig's
in the Democratic Party, and when he says something it means something. Furthermore, he threw a wrench in the President's campaign message as well. We
all know he is out to paint Romney as a vile despicable parasite who feeds off of the suffering of the worker.
Besides, Clinton knows who is buttering his bread post retirement from the Presidency. It is those private equity firms providing all the private jet
flights, five star hotels, and other things. In other words, he is getting comped all over the place. Some of his cabinet had links to private equity
firms during his time as President as well.
Clinton, too, is tied to the world of finance through high-ranking former officials in his administration, such as Robert Rubin, the co-chairman of
Goldman Sachs (GS) who became Treasury secretary in 1995 and took a top post at Citigroup (C) after leaving government
Even the new rock star in the Democratic Party Newark, New Jersey, Mayor, Cory Booker, came out in support of Bain Capital.
Clinton and Booker are not the only Democrat performing an about face against the Obama Campaign, and there have been quite a few others.
Clinton and Booker aren't the only prominent Democrats to come to Bain's defense. Former Democratic National Committee chairman and Pennsylvania
Governor Ed Rendell called the president's anti-Bain ads "very disappointing," while ex-Obama auto czar Steve Rattner said, "I don't think there's
anything Bain Capital did that they need to be embarrassed about." And in an interview with MSNBC, Virginia Sen. Mark Warner took issue with the
notion that Bain behaved somehow immorally: "I think Bain Capital was a very successful business. I think they got a good return for their investors.
That is what they were supposed to do."
This is not good for the Obama Campaign, and it looks like scores of Democrats are turning their backs on the President? The examples above, proves
that Bill Clinton's remarks are not an isolated incident, but a going trend within the Democratic Party. People are eating each other all over the
place, and now it appears the Democratic Party are cannibalizing each other. Oh the humanity!
