Bill Clinton tells Jon Stewart: Romney driven by ideology instead of evidence

Source: Raw Story

On his show Thursday night, Daily Show host Jon Stewart interviewed former President Bill Clinton, praising him for using actual facts in his speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Clinton explained that he didn’t want to talk down to the American people. He accused Republicans of basing their economic plan purely on ideology instead of evidence.

“If we don’t deal with it, it will deal with us,” Clinton said, referring to the national debt. “If I come to you and I say, ‘we have this terrible national debt and here is my opening gambit, first thing I’m going to do is increase it by $5 trillion over a decade by doing another round of tax cuts that mostly benefited the people that we benefited in the last decade, even though it didn’t produce jobs. Now we are in a really deep hole, now let me tell you how we are going to get out of it — well what about the details? See me after the election.’”

2. SOOOOOO glad this happened!

I LOVE it that Jon Stewart is on our side. His demographic is smart, young, large, reality-based, and of the generation that's coming up into power in the next 10 - 20 years. Like my daughter's generation. And my son's. And all their friends'.

Our kids are like sooooooo many others their age - who are finally going to kill the prejudice against gays, and possibly other prejudices as well, once and for all. Or else they're gonna bring acceptance closer and more widespread, and more mainstream, than ever. 'Cause they all grew up around, near, and sometimes with families that were composed of every combination of adult and child. From every part of the world. Devoted to every religion imaginable. Single heads of households. Same-sex partnerships. Mixed-race couples. And all of the above with children of a wide variety of ages and both genders, from multiple nationalities. And not ONE moment of it, or person of it, or any other aspect of it makes ANY difference to anyone around them whatsoever. As our daughter likes to say, a bit derisively, in situations like this - "no one cares."

4. IMPEACH GROVER

Why should one man with one idea have so much political power?

He's a dictatorship of budget policy.

And he's UNELECTED!
