Bill Clinton To Campaign In Pensacola On Saturday

October 19, 2016

Former President Bill Clinton will campaign in Pensacola and other Florida cities this weekend for his wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, her campaign announced Tuesday.

Bill Clinton will start the “Stronger Together” bus tour Friday in Orlando, with public stops planned that day in Jacksonville and on Saturday in Bay County and Pensacola.

The former president “will discuss Hillary Clinton’s plans to build an economy that works for all, not just those at the top, and lay out her vision for an America that is stronger together,” the campaign said, using two frequent descriptions of such visits.

Clinton will be at E.S. Cobb Community Resource Center, 601 E. Mallory St., from 3:45-5 p.m.. Doors will open at 2 p.m.

Clinton was supposed to travel across North Florida on behalf of Hillary last month — but that trip was canceled when Clinton flew to Israel for the funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres. North Florida is a reliably Republican area, but Democrats can draw votes in places like Jacksonville and Tallahassee, and Clinton has pushed into red areas nationwide as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s polling numbers have sunk.

    Ref: Henry Coe, Really? You really think that? National deficits higher than ever, we are practically owned by other countries, ISIS is stronger than ever, we basically opened the doors for ISIS letting thousands into the US, but we are better off? Trump might be the best candidate we’ve ever had, but in my opinion he’s not just a repeat of the last 8 years.

    Maybe Bill will show us what he really thinks of us by dumping the sewage holding tank of his campaign bus in the streets. Impossible? The Clinton campaign did exactly that in Lawrenceville Ga. Just another example of Democrats using the “do as I say, not as I do” philosophy.

    The greatest post World War 2 president of the 20th century. Looking forward to greeting him on the eve of his wife’s triumph.

    The Clinton campaign “supposedly” fired all employees that were paid to create riots at Trump rallies and they also got rid of the banker (previously convicted of fraud!! ) whose job was to design a voter fraud scheme. Bill might be looking for new blood to replace these sorry excuses for human beings. No matter what your political preference, everyone should be appalled watching the video outlining the planning of these crimes. On a practical note: how is Hillary effectively vetting millions of immigrants if she cannot keep felons and criminals out of her own campaign? . Of course it could not be possible that they are hired on purpose to carry out such outrageous deeds!! (tongue in cheek)

    Go to Google/Yahoo and type “August 1998 speech”. You don’t even have to type “Clinton” or “President”. The vast majority of links will give the transcript of his speech to the nation from August 17, 1998 when he admitted his affair with Monica Lewinsky. The full text is on the websites for CNN and ABC, so don’t claim a “vast right-wing conspiracy”. Read it in full then think about how the media is treating Donald Trump’s comments. I’m no big fan of Donald. But lewd comments to women are a lot less important than spilling top secret information and telling the family of the Bengazi victims they will get the man who made that video (instead of getting the men who attacked the embassy staff). Plus all the other scandals Hillary has been involved in during the past 30 years. How can anyone actually trust her with the Presidency?

    Bill do us all a favor and go home. You brought shame to the oval office and you have never apologized for it. Oh I forgot it was OK cause you’re a Democrat. One of many double standards.

    re: Tom, What the last 8 years got us, was recovery from the damage done in the 8 years before President Obama.
    Trump should be feared. He wants to deregulate everything. That will probably include regulations like traffic laws and Federal Guidelines for Air Traffic Controllers.
    There are many many regulations, like the Unites States Constitution, that are good and that we should keep.
    Trump generalizes in his hate, fear and smear rhetoric in order to emotionally manipulate who he can. If you have a real reason to support Trump, then vote for him. I just see him as being like a junkie who is willing to say whatever he needs to say to get whatever he needs to get.
    Being POTUS means being able to compromise whether that is with Congress to pass legislation or with foreign leaders to keep the world stable. Trump lacks that ability. He knows how to manipulate money as a business owner, but that is a far cry from being a leader who can negotiate policy.

    Impeached pedophile who punches women in the face? Don’t you know I’ll be there for that!

    Someone needs to ask the Clinton’s and Obama’s what they intend to do with all the funds the Clinton foundation has aquired for aid to hati 10 years ago. We are talking billions. Less than 6 percent was used for aid. Now millions of hatian’s are on the verge of death and no aid is present except for a few individuals using their personal funds. People wake up and get the real news from the internet.

    Stay home, Bill.

  14. Tom on October 19th, 2016 7:00 am

    Not worth a personal trip from Mrs. Hillary, or is she resting? We know what the last 8 years got us, let’s not go down that same road people. Vote Trump! He may not be every ones ideal candidate, but of the two it’s not even a choice.

    Vote Trump.

    I bet he can’t round up a good 2 dozen for this rally. Go home Bill. Hillary for prison !!!!

    Bill ( Slick Willie ) Clinton is coming to OUR area?
    Lordy Mercy, gather the young people and little children into the house and close the shutters until the danger has passed.
    This man is a pawn of big money and the Clinton Foundation.
    We KNOW what he feels about women and he was a subject of Congressional Investigation.
    Now his woman wants to be president.

    WE are Voting for Mr. Donald Trump for President as one thing we do NOT need is another Clinton in the white house.

    Saints Preserve the USA.
