The American Dream is Not Dead

We’re almost to the point of getting our government assigned dream.
Check it out:

Folks, I have to tell you something. You look out over America today, and there is discontent everywhere. There is a malaise. This massive depression, this fog has just settled over the country. I mean, even yesterday at that Martin Luther King rally, they were expecting 100,000, and barely 20,000 showed up.

The most noteworthy thing that happened yesterday was Bill Clinton taking a huge swipe at Obama. The media today is out there saying, “No, no, no! Clinton didn’t take a swipe at Obama.” You know what Clinton said? He said, “Martin Luther King didn’t die…” I’m paraphrasing; I don’t have it right in front of me. He said, “Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t die so that his heirs could complain about gridlock in Washington.”

Who is complaining about gridlock in Washington? That’d be Obama. Who is he blaming for it? Me! I mean, the Republicans won’t go along with him, the Republicans won’t talk to him, the Republicans won’t agree with him — and it’s because of me, he says. They’re afraid of me! Clinton is saying Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t die so that his heirs could complain about Washington gridlock. Who’s complaining about gridlock?

It was obviously at slap at Obama, and so the media is petrified, and they’re out there, “No, no, no! That’s not at all what happened.” I have the sound bites coming up, and you’ll be able to hear. Well, I know Clinton blamed me for the same thing. They all blame me. But Clinton hasn’t been talking about “gridlock” for the past two weeks; Obama has, or for the past five years; Obama has. Clinton’s not gonna go up there and take a swipe at himself.

So who was he taking a swipe at?

It had to be Obama.
