Emails Reveal Sidney Blumenthal Bashing Obama
At Free Beacon by Ali Meyer,
Hillary Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal bashed President Obama’s economic recovery, calling it a failure, and criticized policies such as the stimulus and Obamacare, according to leaked emails.
“The economy story has three acts: Bush’s recession, followed by Obama’s attempted recovery, followed by Obama’s failed recovery,” wrote Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton in September of 2010.
“Blaming Bush has a fading political half-life. In September, we’ve concluded ‘Recovery Summer,’ which curdled into Slowdown Summer.”
“Obama put his brand on “Recovery Summer” and now he owns Slowdown Summer—that’s his brand for the midterms,” he said. “The slowdown is on Obama’s watch; it’s charged to his credit card.”
Blumenthal then went on to criticize some of President Obama’s signature economic policies.
