Kudlow’s Money Politics

The Curse of Clinton?

Bill Clinton is out there joking that mangy old Republican dogs are telling folks that Democrats will raise taxes, send you to the poor house, and how terrorists loom on every street corner.

So, let me get this straight: Clinton is saying tax hikes are fine and dandy. He’s also saying that terrorism is not a threat.

This doesn’t strike me as a winning message.

Clinton may be more of a liability than an asset for the Dems. I hope he gets his message out. And I hope the GOP takes him on.
