Clinton Praises Obama, Perry In USA Today

Clinton Praises Obama, Perry In USA Today

Even with a Rasmussen Presidential Approval Index rating of negative 18; President Barack Obama appears to have at least one high-profile cheerleader.

Former President Bill Clinton, back in the news after the release of his book Back to Work, has more than once in recent weeks come to Obama’s defense.

Clinton offers some criticisms of Obama’s work, mostly focusing on the summer debt ceiling crises which he says made the United States look “weak and confused” to foreigners. But a large part of the Clinton message appears to be that when the economy is lagging, government action is better than no action at all; and he says Obama has done a better job in that respect than people have given him credit for.

Clinton told USA Today, in an interview published Monday, that he believes Republicans are banking on history as the 2012 elections draw near: putting a large part of their electoral focus on the fact that no modern President has been elected to a second term with jobless rates as high as they are now.

“But the American people have a funny way of figuring. If they decide that the unemployment rate is that high because the Congress refused to work with the President and their numbers remain markedly lower than his, he might win anyway. I still think he’s in pretty good shape.” Clinton said in the interview.

Obama is not the only person receiving Clinton’s praise. The former President also came to the defense of GOP Presidential candidate Texas Governor Rick Perry regarding in-State tuition assistance for illegal aliens.

“It makes my skin crawl when they attack Rick Perry for one of the best things he did,” Clinton said, before suggesting that without the program the illegals would become dope-peddlers.
