Newt: Clinton’s DNC Speech Could Be Seen As ‘Condemnation’ Of Obama

Newt Gingrich argued that former President Bill Clinton’s well-received speech at the Democratic convention could be construed as a “condemnation” — not an endorsement, as it was — of President Obama.

“Think about it,” Gingrich said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” summing up how he interpreted Clinton’s message: “I had the longest period of economic growth in economic history; you didn’t, Mr. Obama. I got to four balanced budgets by working with Republicans; you didn’t, Mr. Obama.”

“You can take his speech, spin it not very much, and it’s actually a condemnation of the fact that Obama learned nothing … out of the 2010 election.”
