Newt Gingrich Says Clinton DNC Speech Was “Eerily Anti-Obama”
Suddenly Newt Gingrich praises the Clinton presidency, and doesn’t acknowledge the context of the Clinton’s remarks favoring another Obama term.
“I actually thought parts of the Clinton speech were eerily anti-Obama, if you just listened to the subtext. I mean, here is Clinton saying, ‘I reformed welfare because I worked with the Republicans, you didn’t, Mr. Obama.’ He didn’t say it that way, but think about it,” Gingrich told CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“‘I had the longest period of economic growth in history, you didn’t, Mr. Obama. I got to four balanced budgets by working with Republicans, you didn’t, Mr. Obama,'” Gingrich added.
Gingrich, who was a sharp critic of Clinton during his presidency, added: “I think what it does is it actually shrinks Obama. I mean, you have a real president and then you have this guy who is a pretender.”
