Most have claimed that Obama is very good at presentation in speeches and other events, well apparently Bill Clinton agrees:
“I haven’t cleared this with him and he may even be mad at me for saying this so close to the election, but I know what else he said to his economic advisers (during the crisis),” Clinton told the crowd at a Wednesday night rally with Obama in Florida. “He said, ‘Tell me what the right thing to do is. What’s the right thing for America? Don’t tell me what’s popular. You tell me what’s right — I’ll figure out how to sell it.'”
“Barack Obama had no idea what the right thing to do is or at least that’s Bill Clinton’s impression,” McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb said.
“It’s disturbing that … Barack Obama’s response to this is ‘Tell me what to do and I will sell it,'” Goldfarb added. “That’s been Barack Obama’s entire campaign — is one big sales job.”
Clinton also said in Florida Wednesday night that Obama has proved himself by running a campaign that “involves so many people,” adding: “He has executed this campaign in a way that is different from modern and forward thinking — something no one else ever could have done. He can be the chief executor of good intentions as president.”
It’s not clear what he meant, since he pronounced the word ‘executer.’
Asked about Clinton’s intentions Wednesday, Goldfarb said: “I think … he clearly chooses his language carefully.”
He said it, we didn’t.
