Bill Clinton Backtracks On Extending Bush Tax Cuts

Ex-President Bill Clinton apologized for making statements that sounded like an endorsement of extending Bush-era tax cuts on wealthy Americans. “I thought something had to be done right away – I forgot the first rule of being a politician in an election year: doing things is dangerous. Election years are a time to talk specifically about things your party has done that you know are popular with your voters, and speaking in sweeping generalities about the future. Under no circumstances do you actually do anything!”

Clinton looked tired as he made his recantation – as if he had been up all night being brow-beaten.
