Politico -- It's usually Republicans accusing Democrats of wanting to turn the United States into Europe.
Not on Monday, when former President Clinton blasted the austerity policies of the Republican party and nominee Mitt Romney — accusing them of pursuing "crazy" economics.
"The Republican Congress and their nominee for President, Gov. Romney, have adopted Europe's economic policies," Clinton said at a fundraiser with President Obama at the home of a New York City hedge fund manager.
"Their economic policy is austerity and unemployment now, and then a long term budget that would explode the debt when the economy recovers so the interest rates would be so high, nobody would be able to do anything," Clinton said.
"So the politics is wrong on the Republican side, the economics are crazy," Clinton said.
Obama "has good politics, he's got a good record, he's made the best of a very challenging situation, he deserves to be reelected," Clinton said.
Clinton, who shied away from a full-throated attack on Romney's business record last week, went on the offense in New York City.
"The alternative would be in my opinion calamitous for our country and the world," Clinton said.
Blog author's comments - So Clinton does not have a clue that the "crazy" economics, policies and agenda of the Obama administration has created the many problems America now faces?
I do believe that the incompetent Obama campaign is floundering. With remarks like Clinton's, it sounds as if they are becoming a bit desperate. The only thing they have going for them is the collective ignorance of some of the liberals who put Obama in the White House in the first place.
Clinton actually said Obama "has good politics, he's got a good record, he's made the best of a very challenging situation, he deserves to be reelected." The economy will never recover as long as Obama is president.
Mitt Romney would be a welcome relief from who we currently have.
