And the Republicans cheered Bill Clinton?

September 3rd, 2008

I think Lance Burri (and the media) misattribute some of the cheers they heard at the Republican National Convention last night:

There were up-notes to Lieberman’s speech, viagra usa capsule of course: that “surreal moment” I mentioned before? It came when Lieberman said:

In the Senate he has not reached across party lines to get anything significant done, search nor has he been willing to take on powerful interest groups in the Democratic Party.

Contrast that to John McCain’s record, or the record of the last Democratic President, Bill Clinton, who stood up to some of those same Democratic interest groups and worked with Republicans to get important things done like welfare reform, free trade agreements, and a balanced budget.

And the audience cheered…Bill Clinton.

I think they were cheering welfare reform, free trade, and a balanced budget.

(Of course, Lance is at the convention and I’m not. So what do I know? ;)
