Alex Castellanos, GOP Strategist: Clinton Speech Was 'Moment That Likely Reelected Obama'

Alex Castellanos, GOP Strategist: Clinton Speech Was 'Moment That Likely Reelected Obama'

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Former President Bill Clinton's speech on Wednesday night was a tour de force that exhibited his best qualities as an easily relatable communicator and effective yet likeable attack dog. And in a telling nod toward its effectiveness, the one aspect that Republicans felt comfortable attacking was its length of nearly 50 mintues.

Some conservatives didn't bother with that. Appearing on CNN shortly after Clinton finished, Alex Castellanos, a longtime cable commentator and former aide to Mitt Romney, spoke in awe of the 42nd president's address.

"I would recommend to my friend Paul here, tonight when everybody leaves, lock the doors. You don't have to come back tomorrow. This convention is done," Castellanos said. "This will be the moment that probably re-elected Barack Obama. Bill Clinton saved the Democratic Party once, it was going to far left, he came in, the new democrats took it to the center. He did it again tonight."

6. These bastards couldn't go "Too Far Left" if they were at the Winston Cup on Turn 1!!

Conservatives . . . and really, much of America . . . have an extremely skewed idea on what modern Democratic politicians are like versus what a liberal/progressive SHOULD be. To them, it seems "Anyone to the Left of Joe Lieberturd = Vlad Lenin". It's such bullshit.

I'll say the same thing I'm saying to everyone else when it comes to this. Of the 535 members of the House and Senate, name me 20 progressives. Bernie Sanders or left of him. TWENTY. They couldn't do it and they know it.

3. Rethugs got NOTHIN'!

they haven't had anything but lies for years, going all the way back to Nixon. This supernova of lies is imploding upon them again, as it did during the bank crisis, and although the RW will be around forever and ever, they have boxed themselves into a corner from which they cannot escape during this election cycle...methinks.

4. "the new democrats took it to the center"

What? By mentioning Poppy & Shrub when the rethugs refused to utter the names of their most recent Presidents?

5. It was an awesome speech, but I have an issue with the talking points

that the only thing that kept Obama from losing to Mitt Romney were great speeches by Michelle and Bill Clinton.
