Clinton is "very sorry" for being honest


Former President Bill Clinton is on his own apology tour.

Appearing on TV on Thursday, Clinton said he “regrets…this stirring up” and is “very sorry” for veering off message on the Bush tax cuts, and the former president denied he is undermining President Barack Obama, insisting he is fully committed to Obama’s reelection. 

“I’m very sorry for what happened. I thought something had to be done on the fiscal cliff before the election,” Clinton told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, referring to comments he made this week suggesting the Bush tax cuts should be extended - something Obama vehemently opposes. “I support [Obama’s] position [on the Bush tax cuts], and I think on the merits, upper-income people will have to contribute to long-term debt reduction.” More here:

What's this?  Extend the Bush tax cuts?  As an aside, I love how most of the media uses "Bush era tax cuts" instead of just "Bush tax cuts."  They want to make sure you don't credit Bush with ANYTHING.

Anyway, Clinton is right ... so you have to ask yourself "why is he so sorry" after he said it?  Anyway, guess what, Clinton isn't the only lib who thinks that way ... what does Ben Bernanke think about this?  You may have heard of him  He's in charge of the Fed.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke dropped a major bombshell on Democrats seeking massive new revenues to narrow the deficit, announcing Thursday that he favors preserving the Bush administration tax cuts to help a faltering U.S. economy.

“In the short term I would believe that we ought to maintain a reasonable degree of fiscal support, stimulus for the economy,” Bernanke told the House Financial Services Committee. “There are many ways to do that. This is one way.”

Bernanke's statement put him directly at odds with White House officials and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who favor raising taxes on wealthy Americans by letting the tax cuts the Bush administration passed in 2001 and 2003 expire. More here:

And the funny part?  Here we are, our currency is getting crushed, housing prices in the toilet, unemployment thru the roof ... and what's Obama's answer?  TAX THE RICH!!!  Take MORE money out of the private sector.

LMAO .. as IF "the rich" pay taxes.  Think about it ... where do "the rich" get their money?  Do you think "the rich" are going to just pay the extra taxes without trying to make up their losses?  If you think that way, you must be a stupid idiot liberal "Democratic."
