Bill Clinton criticized the American people for being "too impatient" for an economic recovery:
Think he didn't intend for people like me to post that clip? Think again. Whatever his (manifold) shortcomings, Clinton is a savvy enough pol to know that you don't win votes for yourself (or anyone else) by excoriating Americans who are suffering from long-term high levels of unemployment for being impatient for economic growth, so that they can get a job. Surely he realized it would grate on those struggling economically to be lectured this way by a man who has earned tens of millions of dollars in income just by giving speeches since leaving office -- now "supporting" Barack Obama, who is rich by any objective measure.
And surely he knew that people like me would post this clip -- highlighting the fact that Barack Obama himself pledged to heal the economy (presumably, along with the planet!) in three years:
Happy to oblige, President Clinton.
