President Clinton joins forces with Obama re-election

Washington (CNN) - If case you had any doubts, don't - Bill Clinton's fully on board President Barack Obama's re-election effort.

"Barack Obama deserves to be re-elected president of the United States," the former president said Sunday night, as he joined the current officeholder at a fundraiser for the Obama re-election campaign.

It was a very different story four years ago, when Clinton was the biggest and most vocal supporter of his wife, Hillary Clinton, in her historic battle against Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination.

    WOW! There is an endorsement...from scum bag slick willie clinton who just 3 years ago had NOTHING good to say about obama. obama must indeed be in panic mode... even his half sister (in Kenya) has taped an interview...and bo is now thumping his chest on the osama bin laden take down...whew! When you aint got a record to run on...well you make a media blast for diversion...he has already done more reelection fund raisers than all of our Presidents since 1977 COMBINED!

    Is this the same Bill Clinton who was accused of being a racist by Obama supporters four years ago?

    Look who's in the picture with them, the head of the teacher's union. Our children deserve better than the current failed educational system.

        OBAMA keeps trying to convince us that the way Mitt Romney spends HIS money, is more important than how Obama spends OUR money ... while Michelle squanders a half a million dollars in five days, on just ONE of her many vacations, and, Obama squanders 5 TRILLION dollars of OUR money ... and, he still wants to spend more !!!

    The people rejected Hillary. That meant they didn't want another Cloiton in the White House. I doubt Bill will gather more votes for Obama. But you have to ask. What does Bill and the Liberals really want?? Control of our lives. Bill Clinton is trying to solidify his Legacy. he is trying to prove Socalisim works. Sorry. It has failed everywhere it has been tried. 40 Years of Democrat rule proved that. Goodbye Obama, goodbye Clinton.

      SOCIALISM IS ALIVE AND WELL IN THE RED STATES. IT'S CALLED THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM AND YOU'RE WELCOME!

        I guess you never heard of Compton (Ca) or the South side of Chicago (Ill) or Detroit (Mi). My point is neither of those states are red! Plenty of folks on food stamps there too! Not everyone but a good number! My point... Folks are on food stamps in all 50 states, the red ones, the blue ones, and the purple ones!

        I STAND CORRECTED. SOCIALISM IS ALIVE AND WELL IN ALL OF AMERICA, AND BY GOLLY IT WORKS! JUST ASK THE SENIORS, THE MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN OR NEAR POVERTY.

        I said before there are folks who are in need, no doubt! At the same time there are those who are on assistance and are passing down from one generation to the next, like a heirloom!

        SO YOUR'E SAYING WHAT EXACTLY? WHILE THERE SHOULD BE TIGHTER CONTROLS OVER WHO GETS ASSISTANCE, THE SOLUTION IS NOT SLASHING FUNDING FOR THE PROGRAM WHICH IS WHAT THE TEA PARTY WANTS TO DO SO THEY CAN FIGHT "SOCIALISM" WHILE GIVING TAX BREAKS TO THE RICH. ARE THESE THE KIND OF PEOPLE YOU CAN REASON WITH?

      • Steveo

        I am saying what you just said tighter controls! That should go for everything!
        Wait! Did we just agree on something? Full moon already?

    Obama’s speeches are filled with distortions and fabrications. Even members of his own party don’t trust him, regarding him as ruthlessly selfish.

      ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT OBAMA? I KNOW MITT ROMNEY WANTS TO BE OBAMA SO BADLY BUT THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS.

    It is a photo of President Clinton asking for the job of being in the advanced secret service security team for Obama. Of course the quid pro quo was that Clinton help him get re-elected. Clinton throwing in his lot with Obama.. he's a hard core democrat... what do you expect. The fact is that Clinton has more political horse power than Obama does. Probably more than any politician in the country. I do wonder... when politicians have these corny staged photo opps... and in this case specifically, what do they tell the folks standing there? They look like manaquins. Yea put on a hard hat and reflective vest and stand in a line up.... what gives? Human props. How low can you cast yourself?

    Clinton is the best liar I've ever seen, he's incapable of feeling guilt and has no conscience. Those qualities made him a good politician, Obama tries but he's not in Clinton's league.

        Hey December,Reagan also with the help of Allan Greenspan in the '80 were the first politicians to raid the Social Security coffers .Reagan after raising payroll deductions for S.S. had Greenspan STEAL the difference so to make his yearly budget look good.
