Reading between the lines: Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC

Jerry analyzes Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC.

CLINTON: Middle-class and low-income Americans are hurting, with incomes declining, job losses, poverty, and inequality rising, mortgage foreclosures and credit card debt increasing, health care coverage disappearing, and a very big spike in the cost of food, utilities, and gasoline.

Obama’s solution: raise taxes and take more money from those with declining incomes and from the companies employing the middle-class and low-income Americans.

CLINTON: And our position in the world has been weakened by... a perilous dependence on imported oil...

Obama’s solution: Drill Here, Drill Now? Nope.

CLINTON: He has shown -- he has shown a clear grasp of foreign policy and national security challenges and a firm commitment to rebuild our badly strained military.

Obama’s position: "Iran doesn’t pose a serious threat" 05/18/08; He plans to universally disarm our nation.

CLINTON: Barack Obama is ready to honor the oath, to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Obama’s position: He is currently attempting to squelch free speech.

Thank you, Bill, for enlightening us.
