Bill Clinton: Obama's 'Policies Are Working'

The former president received an enthusiastic welcome from voters in St. Petersburg, Florida, Friday.

Former President Bill Clinton delivered charm, style and a strongly worded message to St. Petersburg voters Friday at a rally for President Barack Obama in St. Petersburg, Florida.

"We're coming down to the end of this election and as usual, Florida's got a lot to say about it."

"I am far more enthusiastic about President Barack Obama this time, and you should be, too," Clinton said. "I feel more strongly this time because, first of all, he has done a much better job with a terrible situation than most people would."

Clinton told voters who had poured into the Colesium that Obama "picked up the pieces" of a failed administration four years ago and worked tirelessly to find consensus with Republicans in Congress.

“This country has gotten way too partisan in Washington D.C." 

Although a couple of thousand people had shown up and there were lines down the street, the Colesium was not filled.

But the enthusiasm of the audience made the auditorium feel packed. People chanted "four more years" and supporters were loud and enthusiastic, often making it difficult to hear everything Clinton said.

The former president stayed focused on the issues the nation is facing and tried to show how Gov. Mitt Romney, the GOP candidate, would fall short as president.

Clinton talked about clean energy, women's rights and health care, noting the differences between the two candidates.

He said that Obama would bolster clean energy and ensure health care for all Americans, which Clinton described as "an economic issue." He noted Obama's work for fair pay for women in the workplace.

Clinton also noted that Obama has accomplished the health care reform that he and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton worked so hard to launch when he was in the Oval Office. Clinton warned that Romney would repeal health care.

He urged voters not to turn back now. "Obama's policies are working."

Given that race seems to be an issue for you, might it be more accurate to say that you didn't vote for Obama because he is black, black, black?

"smart" meters are being "deployed". This is from corrupt officials and corporations and CEOs….. sort of like another bank robbery and fraud…. just like that thing where tax payer money was handed out to banks and wall street…..and then they, instead of helping the middle clas,s they used our money for acquisitions and to pay big bucks to themselves as “salaries “ and bonuses. There doesn’t seem to be and honest one among them. Organized fraud and theft and crime at the tax payers’ expense is the what they do again...this time with stupid unnecessary dangerous easily hacked "smart" meters Big business stands to make huge profits…..CEO’s and government officials especially state officials and utility CEO’s will get very rich…………and the middle class and poor loses again…this time though it’s more than homes and savings…it’s health, privacy and safety. And the beauty of it is for these corrupt, unethical companies and officials…….. these plastic “smart” meters need working on and have to be replaced …because they are operating systems…they go obsolete faster than your laptop. They say this “smart”meter fraud was put in motion by “Bush”….well Bush took his ranch off the grid….no smart meter for him. He probably knows more about them than Obama and doesn't want one.
