A lot. That’s the subtext I’m taking away from this quote from Bill Clinton’s interview with Obama sycophant Fareed Zakaria on CNN, aside from the boilerplate leftwing bitching (from a guy who ran to the right, on several issues, of George H.W. Bush in ’92, no less):
FAREED ZAKARIA, HOST: You’re not worried about the Democratic Party?
BILL CLINTON, FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: No. We’ve got a lot of good people in the Party. We’ve got a lot of good ideas.
But I think you’ve got to give it the Republicans. They have a much more reliable media base. And they just say no. They know what they want. They want power to cut taxes, eliminate regulations, take government down except for what they like. And they can fill the atmosphere with a lot of static.
When you’re trying to get something done, it requires a much more deft strategy because you have to explain what you’re trying to do, and it’s a little tougher for us.
Love this comment: “because you have to explain what you’re trying to do, and it’s a little tougher for us.”
Translation: “We’re taking the country where they don’t want to go. Do you know how hard it is to cover that up?”
Yeah. When what you’re trying to do involves a 20,000 page version of the Communist Manifesto passed in the dead of night that you have to pass in order to find out what’s inside it, you may have a bit of a problem. Even with a lapdog media constantly sucking on your…lap.
