Bill Clinton: Republicans 'built' the national debt

Posted By on Wed, Sep 5, 2012 at 8:32 AM

Lots more here on Bill Clinton's talk at an Arkansas delegation fund-raiser, apparently a warmup for his convention address on economic issues. He's the man for that talk, given his record. Applause line:

But perhaps the main point of Clinton's speech was putting the blame for the national debt squarely at the GOP's doorstep.

He pointed to the giant national debt clock that Republicans had at their convention, saying, "You see that debt clock?"

"They built it!" shouted a man in the audience.

"Yeah, they built it. They built it," replied Clinton, to loud cheers and laughs from the audience.
