How The Big Moment Missed Its Target

From our friends at Save Jersey:

There were some noticeable gaps in Bill’s retelling of the Clinton Family History on Tuesday night, Save Jerseyans.

The irony of wrapping up a girl power-themed DNC evening with Slick Willie shouldn’t be lost on anyone with a wife/daughter/girlfriend.

That being said, despite the many controversial aspects of his family’s true history, I believe former President Bill Clinton‘s speech could’ve gone from ‘meh’ to great had he actually acknowledged the affairs.

“And when I wavered in my duties as a parent and a spouse, Hillary never did” or something like that.

It would’ve made the speech seem less… slick.

Every persuadable voter listening was thinking about whether he’d mention their marital troubles as the talented but aging politico droned on (and on) with a cherry-picked account of his storybook romance (snicker) with the Democrat nominee.

You know it’s true; it was the elephant in a room of donkeys.

That omission was a major missed opportunity for the campaign, likely as a result of the former president’s arrogant unwillingness to acknowledge fault on prime time television. He’s a selfish man. A weak, fatally flawed leader. Always has been, always will be.

Ask any of his girlfriends.
