We are constantly told by the media that Clinton is riding to the rescue of democrats but apparently that old gray stud he ain’t what he used to be:
he began his speech just before 3 p.m. in a high school gym that was less than half full. The appearance was in support of gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero, shown in most polls to be trailing Republican candidate Rick Snyder by 20 percentage points.
The most amazing thing about this story is was the next paragraph:
Shortly before Clinton took the stage, the Rev. Wendell Anthony, president of the Detroit branch of the NAACP, urged attendees to leave bleacher seats along one side of the gym and try to fill the area in front of the podium before Clinton began his address.
It reminds me of his rally for Coakley in Jan, held at WPI full of kids who don’t vote, Union guys whose stewards were watching them and aging activists lined up as if it was a Tom Jones concert.
In that post I compared President Clinton to a thief in an episode of Dr. Who and quoted this line:
DOCTOR: I wonder if ol’ Taffy knows the real value of it. “Scringe stone” found in a dead man’s pocket? A lost mine? A phony ma… are people still falling for that old guff? I mean are they?
Apparently this year, they aren’t.
