It’s tough to be President…
Past or present.
Especially when everything you say?
Under a microscope.
A fine fact only made worse?
When you say obviously stupid, STUPID things…
And stick your foot in your mouth when it comes to Party messages.
[via HeadlineDigest]Bill Clinton has been going off-message lately. In a way, he’s like former House Speaker Newt Gingrich – a senior statesman who says what he thinks, perhaps without thinking through the implications for his ‘team,’ and gets in trouble. Much has been made of former President Bill Clinton’s recent off-message comments about Mitt Romney, taxes, and the economy.

President Clinton is not the only President…
Making verbal, slip-ups in the news.

[via The Caucus] President Obama on Friday afternoon backed away from his earlier comments that the “private sector is doing fine,” telling reporters that he does not believe the economy is doing fine.
“That’s precisely why I asked Congress to start taking some steps that can make a difference,” Mr. Obama said in brief remarks to reporters during a meeting with the visiting Philippines president.
Republicans had seized on comments Mr. Obama made during an earlier news conference, in which he repeatedly made the point that hiring at private businesses is doing well, while hiring by state and local government is not.
“The private sector is doing fine,” Mr. Obama said at the news conference.
But cheer up, BO…
If this last little slip-up is any indication for your political future (And, oh, it probably is)?
You definitely have a fallback career!
And if the song is any indication?
Chances are, at least singing…
The career might actually be a successful one.
