Slick Willy went back to his home state of Arkansas on Monday to campaign for incumbent Senator Mark Pryor (D). And in an attempt to whack Republicans for criticizing Obama’s economic record, Bill Clinton said “They see these polls. The president is unpopular in Arkansas.” To be clear, Obama’s approval is in the tank among Arkansas voters–it stands at a pitiful 31 percent.
“And, yeah, the economy is coming back but nobody believes it yet because you don’t feel it,” Clinton said. “But what I said four years ago, or two years ago in Charlotte. Financial crisis take an average of ten years to get over.”
Yeah. Nice one, Bill. Unfortunately, this is not the first time he’s poked Obama while trying to help Democrats.
Nevertheless, the reality on the ground right now for Mark Pryor is grim. When asked whether or not the United States is currently in a recession, a whooping 72 percent of Americans said yes. And research shows that Americans’ incomes are still static, years after the recession and despite Obama’s lofty promises to the contrary.
Pryor’s opponent is 37-year-old first-term congressman and Army vet Tom Cotton. Cotton is leading Pryor in the polls by an average of about 4 percentage points.
Keep up the good work, Bill.
