The Cretan philosopher Epimenides famously propounded the parodoxical assertion that all Cretans are liars. The cretin president Bill Clinton propounded his own version of the paradox yesterday in his capacity as Barack Obama’s foremost campaign surrogate. Campaigning for Obama in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon, Clinton regaled the crowd with his critique of the Romney campaign.
“You’re laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?” Clinton asked, as the Daily Caller reports, after discounting a claim in a recent Romney ad that the Obama administration’s auto bailout hurt American workers. It was an impressive performance by a man who has come to personify the conscience of the Democratic Party.
