GOP Calls Out Clinton’s Bony Finger Wag as Character Reference for Obama
Hey, I like this, folks. CNN: “Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night reminded at least one Republican of another time the former president stepped before the microphones. Former California Gov. Pete Wilson said Thursday at a fundraiser for GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan that Clinton’s finger shake was reminiscent of the time he denied engaging in sexual behavior with a White House intern.”
Remember him shaking that bony finger? He’s up there shaking that bony finger at the convention. It bothered me. And Pete Wilson’s right. (imitating Clinton) “I never had sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky, not a single time, and I never asked anybody to lie, not once.” This is the guy doing character references for Barack Obama, and Pete Wilson of all people, doesn’t matter, it’s great. Finally somebody out fighting back against the Clinton speech, which supposedly owned the convention, it was the greatest thing under the sun.
This is the kind of stuff that’s gonna have to happen, folks. We can’t rely on my perception that I just shared with you carrying the day. It’s gonna have to be told. The Romney campaign is going to have to campaign. The Romney campaign is gonna have to burnish Obama’s record in the minds of every voter in this country. They’re gonna have to highlight this unemployment news. They’re gonna have to broadcast it. They’re gonna have to focus on it: the dismal economic performance; the drop from 55 to 51,000 in average family income; the number of people on food stamps.
