graft czar

He’s had his two terms.
His watch is ended.

[Hillary Clinton] was more blunt than ever about what her husband’s role could be in a future Clinton administration — saying she plans to to put the former president “in charge of economic revitalization.”

You know, running the crony capitalism scam: looting in exchange for gov’t favors.

“My husband, who I’m going to put in charge of revitalizing the economy, cause you know he knows how to do it,” ….

Yep, still has his Rolodex,
buuut it evidently doesn’t list an honest accountant.

“And especially in places like coal country and inner cities and other parts of our country that have really been left out.”

Yeah, left out, because they’re being run by people like her.

“I’ve told my husband he’s got to come out of retirement and be in charge of this because you know he’s got more ideas a minute than anybody I know,” ….

Ideas-per-minute is evidently the new measure of managerial competence.

… “I think he’ll, I hope he’ll have a lot of involvement in starting the economy to really take off.”

“Take off,” as in diet?

…”He’s a great adviser and he knows as much about the economy and job creation as anyone I could talk to.” [story]

Might wanna consider talkin’ to more people.

Aaaaand she’ll be able to pardon him at the drop of a hat.
Sounds like the perfect organized-crime family, to me.

    he knows as much about the economy and job creation as anyone I could would talk to

    Yep. She’d pass out before talking to any non-Keynsian or non-grifter.

    This might actually put votes against her.

    What difference, at this point, does it make?

    I have plenty of “ideas per minute.” Trust me when I tell you that you don’t want me to carry out most of them.

    “… more ideas a minute than anybody I know,” Shows you what kind of people she knows.

    ^ The more I think about it, that sounds like one of von Drumpf’s lines, doesn’t it?
