    Bill Clinton did not give up the mic. He did not surrender the podium or stage. The man did a masterful job of defending comments Hillary made in another place and during another time. And before the uber-outraged times we're in during the past year.

    There were kids killing others for so much as an imagined snub, it was that bad during those crack-infested years. Progeny of crack whores knowing no father plus a mentally absentee mom had no real chance for anything more.

    Bubba wasn't taking any crap from them, but he remained reasonable & calm throughout. Pretty impressive.

    Bill was impeached & there he is acting like a role model for his wife.

    BLM tried to go Bernie on Bubba because he had the temerity to say that homicidal gang-bangers and crack dealers deserve prison. In the crackpot snowflake world of the SJW and BLM, suggesting that homicidal gang-bangers and crack dealers deserve prison is racist. The love affair between blacks and Clintons isn't as strong as it once was.

    And other acronyms, such as the FBI, CIA, CBC, NBC, SEC, BBC, CBS, ABC.

    I do believe the alphabet has come to kill us all.

    I apologize for a poor choice of words before, so the post was removed.

    I acknowledge that the love affair between African Americans and Bill C appears strained, but that is easily a product of the newly emerged outrage industry combined with inattention to history, or observing history's revisionist ashes.

    In a way, just desserts, because I recall Bubba excoriating about burned down black churches way back when, that I came to understand were never set by whites.

    Plus, Bill worked it the other way around with the Sister Sold'ja moment. Utilizing the rap singer's incendiary lyrics to turn tides on Jesse Jackson.

    Not to diminish history, criticise this post, nor to argue the point, fact is that was then... This is now.

    Bill Clinton aka "Bubba" is a shadow of his former self. Love em or hate em, his message circa 2016 is inconsistent, weak, conflicted, and seems to be doing more damage than good to his vicious steely eyed wife.

    It's a clear display of a man who should gracefully step back from the white hot spotlight under which he once thrived. While I've never been a supporter, I did admire his skill in the political arena. A skill that he no longer possesses.

    When poor people behave badly the people who are most affected are the poor themselves.

    If his wife used Monica as a role model, he wouldn't have been impeached :oops: (officially a joke for those that don't get it, keep moving)

    BLM protestors are great role models for the community, we should all follow what they say

    before people say Breitbart is not news here are some other sources

    i love how the the Toronto Star says "Black Lives Matter co-founder called out for tweet deemed racist" , the Star could not even straight out say "kill white people is racist", they have to use deemed.

    You reap what you sow. I know plenty of poor rural areas in the midwest US, never concerned about getting shot there.

    Probably not, strange thing when a community actually gives a **** about what's going on in their community and make their kids stay in school/parent properly.

    My take on this is different. I think Slick Willie was appealing to an audience not in that room. He was speaking to disaffected Caucasians. Clinton(s) takes the black vote for granted. Always has.

    Clearly the case. You remember Bill was called "The first black president."

    I heard several talkers on the Right that hit that same point. They actually agreed with him.

    This is VERY much Bill's style, remember wha he did after the 94 mid-terms. He worked with Newt after an historic wave against Bill's party. When's the last time you've heard "the era of big government is over" from a Dem?

    What this also shows is that Hillary is in trouble. She's been unable to put away a 74 year old admitted socialist who is out raising her by a good margin, she can't win without getting his voters. The best he's said about her is that she's better than anyone on the Right (not a 'ringing' endorsement). She's been unable to draw his voters over.

    Bill knows this and is walking another tightrope to bring in some from the "middle-right".

    Blacks made more progress under the last 6 years of Bill than they probably had prior or since. His tough on crime, actually worked, crude in some/many cases but worked. I'm no fan of the war on drugs, or lock everyone up, but it worked to reduce crime.

    Wealth from the early 80's to the late 90's was very good across the board.

    President Reagan got the economy rolling in the 80’s.

    It's sad that many actually lived thru that and yet we can just do the same thing again. It shows that we're so divided that we can't even admit when something went well because we don't like who gets the credit.

    The art of personal destruction that's been a part of politics for a while now is now the way our nation behaves.

    We're well down the path of self destruction.

    If the GOP could field a decent candidate all the candidate would have to ask is are you better off than you were four years ago.

    This is a truth that equally applies to republicans as well as democrats.

    Think of our economy as more of a balancing act, than an either/or issue. The New Deal helped get us out of the depression, and primed the country for its eventual economic boom, but that doesn't mean that the New Deal as it was implemented in the 30's would be a perfect system in perpetuum. There's good reason why it was scaled back in the 50's.

    Reagan lowered taxes and scaled back the welfare state implemented by the New Deal in order to bolster an economy that had become stagnant. It worked, and worked well. But that doesn't mean that the idea of scaling back the welfare state entirely is a good idea, especially now that we're seeing the consequences of nearly 30 years of Reaganomics.

    So the answer isn't so much more of one, less off the other, moreso that sometimes we need one, sometimes the other. A flexible mindset is more important than adhering to economic dogma.

    The problem with economic dogmas is there are so darn many of 'em.

    There's an old joke that the quickest way to get 5 different economic plans is to put 3 economists together in a room.
